Anti-Corbyn propaganda on full blast as UK election nears

Published 2019-11-21 16:27:26 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, United-Kingdom

With less than a month to go before the UK general election, all efforts are being made by political parties to further their agendas. Naturally each side is launching attacks on the other, but perhaps the most virulent campaign is that of the Conservatives towards Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party. Their malicious accusations, particularly regarding allegations of widespread anti-semitism in the Labour party, which are without any proper foundation, have been propagated more or less since Corbyn came to power. The anti-Corbyn propaganda reached its peak last week with an article in The Guardian entitled: “Concerns about anti-semitism mean we cannot… Continue ->

Turkey’s ‘White Elephants’: S-400s Or Patriots?

Published 2019-11-21 15:25:21 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Turkey, United-States

Turkish President Erdogan’s visit to the US last week didn’t visibly seem to have accomplished much in repairing the unprecedentedly damaged relationship between these two nominal NATO “allies”, although the very fact that it occurred despite Washington’s CAATSA sanctions threats, their earlier sharp disagreements over Ankara’s latest military operation in Northeastern Syria, and Congress’ provocative passing of a motion recognizing what some countries including Russia regard as the “Armenian Genocide” showed that there’s the political will on both sides to improve their ties even if only at the leadership level at this moment in time. As it stands, the main… Continue ->

Australia Serves Washington’s Indo-Pacific Strategy By Continually Criticizing China

Published 2019-11-21 14:23:54 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Australia, China, Eurasia, Headline-News, United-States

A war of words initiated by Australia against China on Sunday is souring relations between the two countries, with two Australian Members of Parliament also recently barred from entering the Asian country. Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne demanded that China end its imprisonment of the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province, citing a 400-page internal Chinese Government report leaked to the New York Times. The report details how China supposedly has more than 1 million Uyghurs in detention. The New York Times claimed their source was an anonymous member of the Chinese Communist Party who wanted top leaders to be punished for… Continue ->

LAUGHABLE: An Attempt to Damage Russian-Serbian Relations Fails Miserably (VIDEO)

Published 2019-11-21 12:00:56 by Drago Bosnic in Eurasia, Headline-News, Politics, Propaganda, Russia, Serbia

MOSCOW/BELGRADE – The video in which a “Russian intelligence officer” allegedly hands over money to his Serbian counterpart, stirring a “scandal”, turned out to be several years old. In addition, as the Serbian daily Politika reported, a person alleged to be a Serbian official with the rank of an intelligence officer is not a member of Serbian security structures. In other words, it’s most likely a civilian trading business data. Earlier, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said the Military Security Agency (VBA) is dealing with a possible “espionage affair” in which “Russian spies recruit Serbian agents” and will have more… Continue ->

STUDY: Ketogenic Diet Helps Tame Flu Virus

Published 2019-11-21 11:00:56 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Science, United-States

New Haven, Connecticut – A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet like the Keto regimen has its fans, but influenza apparently isn’t one of them. Mice fed a ketogenic diet were better able to combat the flu virus than mice fed food high in carbohydrates, according to a new Yale University study published Nov. 15 in the journal Science Immunology. The ketogenic diet – which for people includes meat, fish, poultry, and non-starchy vegetables – activates a subset of T cells in the lungs not previously associated with the immune system’s response to influenza, enhancing mucus production from airway cells that can effectively trap… Continue ->

HERE WE GO AGAIN: Russian ‘Threat’ Back on NATO’s Agenda

Published 2019-11-21 10:00:41 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Politics, Russia, United-States

BRUSSELS/MOSCOW – Russian threat, space strategy and stronger China are just some of the topics of NATO ministerial meeting, ending preparations for the Alliance’s summit in London earlier this December. Experts believe that the “Russian issue” will be central, due to the “Russian-Chinese axis” and the efforts Moscow is making to reach an agreement to ban the deployment of weapons in space. NATO’s relationship with Moscow is based on “deterrence and defense”, but, according to Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, there is a willingness for dialogue. Alexei Podberezkin of the Moscow State Institute for International Relations interprets this readiness as an expectation that the… Continue ->

Greece to Make Minimum Guaranteed Income a Constitutional Right

Published 2019-11-21 09:00:01 by Drago Bosnic in Eurasia, Greece-Eurasia, Headline-News

ATHENS – Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced on Tuesday that his government will bring forward a constitutional amendment guaranteeing a basic income for all of its citizens. The surprising announcement was made through the Prime Minister’s personal Twitter account. ”We constitutionally guarantee the minimum guaranteed income, that is, the safety net for the most vulnerable. The Greek state will now be constitutionally obliged to provide dignified living conditions of all citizens,” the Greek Premier’s tweet noted. The ”Minimum Guaranteed Income” was first introduced as a pilot program in Greece in 2014. Its universal enforcement was introduced a few… Continue ->

STUDY: Inflammation Linked to Mental Sluggishness

Published 2019-11-21 08:00:19 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Science, United-Kingdom

Birmingham, United Kingdom – Scientists at the University of Birmingham in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam have uncovered a possible explanation for the mental sluggishness that often accompanies illness. An estimated 12 million UK citizens have a chronic medical condition, and many of them report severe mental fatigue that they characterize as ‘sluggishness’ or ‘brain fog’. This condition is often as debilitating as the disease itself. A team in the University’s Centre for Human Brain Health investigated the link between this mental fog and inflammation – the body’s response to illness. In a study published in Neuroimage, they show… Continue ->
