At last, a federal judge has articulated a fact that’s been in plain view for years: The Trump administration’s implementation of the so-called Title 42 order, expelling migrants without due process, had little to do with pandemic control and everything to do with blocking their legal right …
Painfully aware of how attacks on COVID vaccines and anti-pandemic policies have undermined public health, California enacted a law this year that makes spreading medical misinformation and disinformation about the pandemic grounds for revoking a doctor’s license.

President Joe Biden’s plan to provide up to $20,000 in federal student loan forgiveness has been blocked by two federal courts. That’s left millions of borrowers wondering what happens next. The administration has filed a notice to appeal. Experts say student loan forgiveness has the potential to end up before the Supreme Court, meaning this could be a lengthy process. Biden is now facing pressure to extend a pause on payments that started during the pandemic and was supposed to end January 1.
An imprisoned Russian opposition activist who was honored by a human rights advocacy group dedicated his award to the thousands of people who have been arrested or detained in Russia for protesting President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine. UN Watch gave Vladimir Kara-Murza its highest human rights award. Kara-Murza’s wife accepted the award on his behalf during a ceremony late Thursday. She read a letter from her husband that hailed the journalists, lawyers, artists, priests, politicians, military officers and others “who have refused to say silent in front of this atrocity, even at the cost of personal freedom.” Kara-Murza was jailed in April under a new law that criminalized spreading “false information” about Russia’s military.
Global climate talks are headed to crunch time on the final scheduled day of negotiations. Many expect that negotiators will go past their deadline as chances of a deal still looked unclear. The European Union made a surprise proposal late Thursday that could help buoy chances of reach an agreement. The offer ties compensation for climate disasters to tougher emissions cuts – two of the thorniest issues at the meeting. The EU climate chief said the bloc’s proposal on funding for loss and damage and mitigation is “a final offer” that seeks to “find a compromise” between nations as negotiators seek a way forward at the United Nations climate talks in Egypt.
Germany’s biggest industrial union has agreed with employers on a pay deal that will see millions of workers get raises totaling 8.5% over two years as well as one-time payments meant to cushion the effect of sky-high inflation. The IG Metall union and employers reached a compromise Friday in the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, a key industrial region. In Germany, wage deals are typically hammered out in negotiations between employers’ organizations and unions that cover a whole sector, and an agreement reached in one region is generally applied nationwide. The union initially demanded an 8% rise and a one-year deal.

As violence escalates in Ukraine, human rights abuses have become widespread. The situation is particularly concerning in the southern region of Kherson, where villages were liberated from Russian occupation a week ago. The U.N. says it’s trying to verify allegations of nearly 90 cases of enforced disappearances and arbitrary detentions in Kherson and is trying to understand if the scale of abuse is even larger. A top Ukrainian official says there were at least four torture sites and seven places where people were detained in the Kherson region. Ukrainian officials have opened more than 430 war crimes cases in the Kherson region alone.
Turkey’s state-run news agency says a court has ordered 17 suspects jailed pending trial in connection with a deadly street bombing in Istanbul last weekend. They are accused of attempts against the unity of the state, deliberate killings and attempts to kill. The court on Friday released three other suspects from custody pending trial and ordered the deportation from Turkey of 29 people who were rounded up by police in connection with the attack. The Nov. 13 explosion on Istanbul’s bustling Istiklal Avenue left six people dead, including two children. Turkish authorities blamed the attack on Kurdish militant groups that have denied involvement.
U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris is assuring Asian leaders “the United States is here to stay” as she pitches Washington as a reliable economic partner committed to the region and its prosperity. Harris told leaders at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit on Friday that the U.S. is a “proud Pacific power” and has a “vital interest in promoting a region that is open, interconnected, prosperous, secure and resilient.” Harris had postponed her speech after receiving news that North Korea had fired an intercontinental ballistic missile that landed near Japanese waters, convening an emergency meeting of the leaders of Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and Canada in which she slammed the missile test.
LOS ANGELES — Two theft rings that netted more than $18 million worth of merchandise stolen from railroad cars have been dismantled, authorities said Thursday, months after images of a sea of discarded containers along Union Pacific tracks in Lincoln Heights drew national attention.
A federal judge on Friday will decide whether disgraced Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes should serve a lengthy prison sentence for duping investors and endangering patients while peddling a bogus blood-testing technology. After being convicted of investor fraud and conspiracy earlier this year Holmes’ sentencing marks a climactic moment in a saga that has been dissected books and on TV. The federal government wants the 38-year-old Holmes to be sentenced to 15 years in prison. Holmes is arguing for an 18-month sentence, preferably in home confinement; her lawyers say she deserves more lenient treatment as a well-meaning entrepreneur who is now a devoted mother with another child on the way.
Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos doesn’t shrink from the challenges thrown up by her latest lavish creation. She is a former nightclub bouncer and black-belt karate instructor. The 51-year-old is renowned for her big and in-your-face installations. She is now creating a ceramic wedding cake that’s 12 meters (40 feet) high and 15 meters (50 feet) wide. “The Wedding Cake” is mostly made of Portugal’s famous ceramic tiles called “azulejos.” Vasconcelos is using them in pastel pink, green, blue and yellow in what is her most ambitious outdoor project yet. It is destined for Waddesdon Manor in southeast England which hosts weddings. The unveiling is tentatively scheduled for the end of May.

High energy prices linked to Russia’s war in Ukraine have paved the way for coal’s comeback in some parts of Europe. Many people have turned to coal as a cheaper option than natural gas, , endangering climate goals and threatening health from increased pollution. The trend raises worries in a region of northeastern Czech Republic that has worked for decades to end its industrial legacy as the most polluted area of the country. The country’s production of brown coal — the cheapest form — has risen by more than 20% in the first nine months of 2022 over a year earlier. Officials say that’s the first increase after almost a continuous decades-long decline.
