If the British royal family wished to underline their status as an antiquated institution, out of touch with the present day, they could hardly do better than commission a larger-than-life-size bronze statue of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos is now ready to take people into space.


The US entrepreneur's Blue Origin company says it will launch a crew aboard its New Shepard rocket and capsule system on 20 July.


The astronauts are likely to include company personnel, but one seat is being auctioned online.
New Shepard's flights are sub-orbital. They're designed to take passengers on a straight up-and-down trip that briefly goes above 100km (62 miles).

Sea Breeze 2021 manoeuvres will take place involving:

  • about 4,000 military personnel,
  • 40 warships,
  • 30 planes and helicopters,
  • more than 100 automotive and armoured military vehicles.

The arrival of warships in the area of the exercises did not go without an incident, suffice it to recall the recent scandal with British destroyer HMS Defender.

Was Benjamin Netanyahu involved in dirty deals in the purchase of submarines from German defense company ThyssenKrupp? Israeli lawyer Eliad Shraga accuses the German judiciary and politicians of not helping to resolve the issue.

 

DER SPIEGEL: Mr. Shraga, you have been fighting for years to hold longtime Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accountable for corruption in the submarine scandal. Are you happy that he is now out of office?

Former President Donald Trump will be getting a portrait in the Smithsonian. At some point.

In April, the Smithsonian Institute said it was "pursuing commissioned portraits of former President Trump and Mrs. Trump," but did not have any further details to share at the time.

There is “nothing wrong with being woke” but it is “important to stick up for your history,” Boris Johnson has asserted as he was asked about a description of the new US president, Joe Biden.

A week after voting to approve a “Document on the Meaning of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church,” the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has clarified that their vote will not lead to a blanket ban preventing pro-abortion politicians from receiving communion.

It's hard to believe it's only five days since NSW's COVID-19 response was called the "gold standard" and a full-on lockdown seemed unlikely.

For a government that has made avoiding lockdowns a point of pride, the economic recovery evident in last week’s state budget allowed New South Wales to boast even more about its approach to the pandemic.

Aliens have replaced the angels. Homo sapiens is a species that cannot live without external guidance. Having vanished from relativity, god had to be replaced by the leader of the green men who regularly come to visit us in their flying saucers. From time to time one of their dare-devils (wow! Does this mean the devil still exists?) crashes his little craft and his progeny ends up in the arms of Hillary Clinton. This is real news. We’re nuts. But we’re hoping that these ugly-faced bigeyed little guys will show us the way because to tell the truth we’re hopeless.

Donald Trump has claimed credit for any number of things he benefited from but did not create, and the Republican Party’s reigning ideology is one of them: a politics of cruelty and exclusion that strategically exploits vulnerable Americans by portraying them as an existential threat, against whom acts of barbarism and disenfranchisement become not only justified but worthy of celebration. This approach has a long history in American politics. The most consistent threat to our democracy has always been the drive of some leaders to restrict its blessings to a select few.
