Fashion capital New York considers banning sale of fur

A burgeoning movement to outlaw fur is seeking to make its biggest statement yet in the fashion mecca of New York City.

Lawmakers are pushing a measure that would ban the sale of all new fur products in the city. This, in a town where such garments were once common and style-setters including Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Joe Namath and Sean “Diddy” Combs have all rocked furs over the years.

A similar measure would impose a statewide ban on the sale of any items made with farmed fur and ban the manufacture of products made from trapped fur.

If it passes, New York would become the third major American city with such a ban. San Francisco’s ban is taking effect this year, and Los Angeles’ will take effect in 2021.

Turkey criticizes US for designating Iranian force terrorist

Westlake Legal Group turkey-criticizes-us-for-designating-iranian-force-terrorist Turkey criticizes US for designating Iranian force terrorist fox-news/us/terror fnc/us fnc Associated Press article ANKARA, Turkey 7147337d-e219-5eee-9af0-fd7b4dff8ee6

The U.S. decision to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization is a dangerous development that could lead to chaos, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday.

Speaking at a joint news conference with Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Turkish minister also said that U.S. sanctions were harming the people of Iran.

The United States re-imposed sanctions on Iran, including on its energy sector, last November, after President Donald Trump pulled out of the landmark 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the designation against the Revolutionary Guard with great fanfare last week.

“When we start adding other countries’ armies to terror lists, then serious cracks will occur in the system of international law,” Cavusoglu said. “Trust in the global system will decline and total chaos will ensue.”

“Our conscience does not accept that the brotherly Iranian people be punished,” Cavusoglu said of U.S. sanctions on Iran. “Such steps put regional stability, peace, calm and economic development under risk.”

Zarif arrived in Turkey after visiting Syria where he met President Bashar Assad. Russia, Iran and Turkey, which back rival groups in Syria’s conflict, have been sponsoring talks in Kazakhstan to try to end the war.

Zarif said he would tell Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about his talks with Assad, adding that Iran wants to help Turkey and Syria establish “good relations.”

The U.S. designation — the first-ever for an entire division of another government — adds another layer of sanctions to the powerful paramilitary Iranian force and makes it a crime under U.S. jurisdiction to provide it with material support.

Dr. Robert Jeffress: Is the Resurrection foolish, fake news, or fact?

Is Jesus’s resurrection something only fools believe? Is it fake news spread by His overzealous followers? Or is the resurrection of Jesus Christ the single most important event in history that has tremendous implications for our lives today?

One reason we know that Jesus’s resurrection is fact and not fiction is the proof of logic. Since it is a historical fact that the body of Jesus has never been found, it is logical to ask, “Who stole Jesus’ body from the tomb?” Matthew 27:62–66 records what the Jewish leaders said to Pilate after Jesus’s crucifixion: “‘Give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, otherwise His disciples may come and steal Him away and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last deception will be worse than the first.’ Pilate said to them, ‘You have a guard; go, make it as secure as you know how.’ And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.”

THESE EASTER EGGS SHOW KIDS THE ‘TRUE MEANING’ OF THE HOLIDAY

Notice how Jesus’s grave was protected. First, they set a Roman seal. This seal had the authority of Rome—anyone who broke the seal would face the full wrath of the Roman government. Second, they appointed a Roman guard unit, which was comprised of at least 16 highly trained Roman soldiers, to make sure that the body of Jesus stayed put.

So how did Jesus’s body get out of the tomb? Either man took Him out, or God took Him out.

‘THE CHOSEN’ $10M CROWDFUNDED SHOW OUT NOW: ‘EXPERIENCE JESUS IN A WAY THAT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE’

Did Christ’s friends steal His body? Remember, the disciples had fled when Jesus was arrested, fearing they would suffer a similar fate. His friends lacked the courage to overpower an entire Roman guard unit.

Some people say the Jewish leaders or Roman soldiers stole His body. That makes even less sense. If Jesus’s enemies had His body, they could have paraded it through the streets of Jerusalem, and the Christian movement would have died at its inception.

UNUSUAL HOLY WEEK TRADITIONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

The only answer is that God is the One who rescued His Son from the grave.

Another sign of Christ’s resurrection is the proof of human nature. We all have an instinct for self-preservation. Consider the disciples. On Good Friday, they deserted Christ, but within 48 hours they became courageous defenders of Christianity. What changed in that short amount of time? They saw the resurrected Lord.

Third, consider the proof of early acceptance of the resurrection story. Liberal scholars used to claim that the New Testament was written many decades after Jesus and was, therefore, subject to embellishments like the resurrection. However, scholars now accept that most of the New Testament was written between AD 40 and 65, making the addition of fictitious events highly unlikely.

HALF OF PASTORS SAY THEY WORRY ABOUT SPEAKING OUT ON HOT-BUTTON ISSUES, OFFENDING PEOPLE

Suppose a book were published today that said three days after Ronald Reagan’s death, he arose from his grave in Simi Valley and was seen by hundreds of people. The book’s credibility would be destroyed because of eyewitnesses to the events surrounding Reagan’s death who are still alive. Similarly, the fact that the New Testament was written within a few years of the events it reports—and accepted as fact—supports its authenticity.

Finally, consider the proof of eyewitnesses. In 1 Corinthians 15:6, Paul said more than 500 people saw the resurrected Christ. Some dismiss these experiences as wish fulfillment. However, had the disciples believed Jesus’s resurrection was imminent, they would have camped out at the tomb in anticipation! They weren’t expecting to see Christ again, but they did. And they were so convinced of what they saw that most of them experienced martyrs’ deaths. Millions of people around the world still endure persecution and death because of their life-changing encounters with the resurrected Jesus Christ.

What are the implications of Christ’s resurrection in our lives today? The apostle Paul wrote that Jesus “was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead” (Romans 1:4). The resurrection is the most powerful proof that Jesus really was who He claimed to be—the Son of God and Savior of the world, who offers forgiveness to those who trust in Him.

Jesus’s resurrection also gives us hope that death will not be the final word in our life stories. Jesus promised that those who trust in Him will also conquer death, just as He did on that first Easter Sunday. Jesus declared, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies” (John 11:25).

A Sudanese official and a former minister say the military has transferred ousted President Omar al-Bashir to a prison in the capital, Khartoum.

They say al-Bashir was moved from a “safe place” — the presidential residence inside the military headquarters — where he was held since his ouster, to Kopar Prison.

The two spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because they weren’t authorized to talk to reporters.

Organizers of the street protests had demanded the military move al-Bashir to an official prison.

Sudan’s military last week ousted al-Bashir following months of street protests against his 30-year rule, then appointed a military council it says would rule for no more than two years while elections are organized.

The military has said it wouldn’t extradite al-Bashir to the International Criminal Court.

Blazers go up 2-0 against the Thunder with 114-94 win

Westlake Legal Group blazers-go-up-2-0-against-the-thunder-with-114-94-win Blazers go up 2-0 against the Thunder with 114-94 win fox-news/sports/nba/portland-trail-blazers fox-news/sports/nba/oklahoma-city-thunder fox-news/sports/nba-playoffs fox-news/sports/nba fnc/sports fnc f1be5640-5516-59c9-91e9-e142184f8cbb Associated Press article

CJ McCollum likes when games get gritty.

The guard scored 33 points as the Portland Trail Blazers took a 2-0 lead in their playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 114-94 victory on Tuesday night.

Tense at times with plenty of jawing back-and-forth between the teams, the series now heads to Oklahoma City for Game 3 on Friday.

“I love it, that’s what I live for,” said McCollum, who missed 10 games late in the regular season because of a knee injury. “Just like playing on the playground.”

Damian Lillard added 29 points for the third-seeded Blazers, who opened a playoff series with two wins for the first time since the 2014 playoffs, when they beat Houston in six games.

Russell Westbrook, who had his ninth career postseason triple-double in Oklahoma City’s Game 1 loss, finished with 14 points, nine rebounds and 11 assists. He was pulled with 3:31 with most of his fellow starters after Portland built a 112-91 lead.

Westbrook was just 5 of 20 from the field, including 1 for 6 on 3-point attempts. Collectively, the Thunder were 5 of 28 from the perimeter.

“I’ve got to play better,” Westbrook said. “Tonight, the loss, I’m going to take full responsibility of tonight because the way I played was unacceptable. I’m going to be better.”

Paul George had 27 points despite lingering questions about his right shoulder, which was covered with kinesiology tape.

Portland’s victory in Game 1 snapped a 10-game postseason losing streak that included four-game sweeps in the past two seasons — first by the Warriors and then last year by the Pelicans. Lillard had 30 points in the 104-99 win on Sunday.

Oklahoma City beat the Blazers in all four meetings during the regular season. The Thunder have been to the playoffs for eight of the last nine seasons, but they haven’t gotten past the opening round for the past two.

Oklahoma City started with a lot more energy than in Game 1, when it fell behind by 19 points in the first half. When Westbrook hit a 3-pointer in the first quarter, he pounded his chest and the Thunder went on to lead 31-26 at the end of the period.

Lillard hit a 3-pointer and was fouled to close the Blazers within 48-43. But the game began to get heated, with Lillard and Westbrook getting into it when Lillard tried to strip the ball. The officials reviewed it for a “hostile act” but concluded there were no fouls on the play. It was chippy for much of the game, and at one point Lillard and Steven Adams stared each other down after Adams set a screen on the All-Star guard.

“With this team it’s physical. It’s physical every time we’ve played them,” said Portland’s Maurice Harkless, who finished with 14 points. “It’s only magnified now — and it’s only going to get more physical.”

Westbrook collected three fouls in the first half and headed early to the bench, as did Portland’s Enes Kanter, who was so successful against the Thunder in Game 1. Together the teams had 29 fouls in the opening half and there were 54 for the game.

McCollum nailed a 3-pointer off a pass from Lillard at the buzzer to tie the game at 54 going into the break. Then McCollum turned to the crowd and simply nodded.

“My body feels good,” said McCollum, playing in his fourth game since the layoff because of a left knee strain. “Coming off an injury, being able to get into a rhythm and get up and down. Being able to find that rhythm is very important to me.”

Portland pulled in front on McCollum’s jumper and extended it to 69-63 with Lillard’s long 3-pointer. Seth Curry had back-to-back 3s to put the Blazers up 85-73 late in the third.

The Blazers’ hopes for postseason success appeared to take a blow last month when center Jusuf Nurkic was lost for the season with a broken left leg. Nurkic was averaging 15.6 points and 10.4 rebounds when he sustained the gruesome injury during a game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Kanter, signed just before the All-Star break after he was waived by the New York Knicks, has started in Nurkic’s place. Kanter had 20 points and 18 rebounds in Game 1 but finished with six points and five rebounds on Tuesday.

At one point in the first half Kanter got knocked in the hand and X-rays at halftime revealed a contusion. But he said following the game that he’d be fine for Game 3.

TIP-INS

Thunder: Thunder coach Billy Donovan was emphatic before the game: “No injuries, no one out, no game-time decisions.” … It’s the first playoff series between the teams since the Thunder moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City.

Trail Blazers: Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who just signed a contract extension that makes him the highest paid player in the NFL, was among the fans at the Moda Center, as was Gonzaga coach Mark Few. … Jake Layman, who did not play in the series opener, came in to start the second quarter.

TROUBLE FROM DISTANCE

Donovan said he’ll take a look at why the Thunder aren’t faring well from 3-point range. The team also struggled in Game 1, making just five of 33 attempts.

“For the most part, I think we got fairly decent looks and we’re going to have to take them,” Donovan said. “As the ball gets driven downhill, and teams bring help and protect the rim, you just can’t force the ball in there and take tough, ill-advised shots. And when the ball gets sprayed back out to the perimeter and guys are open, it’s hard to say, ‘OK, just drive it right back to the help again and hope they move out of the way.'”

UP NEXT: Game 3 is set for Friday night in Oklahoma City.

News Corp CEO condemns ‘professional liberals’ in media; slams tech giants

News Corp Chief Executive Robert Thomson, in a wide-ranging speech Tuesday night, took aim at the media’s apparent mocking of Middle America and The New York Times’ “muck-spreading,” while ramping up his criticism of big tech companies.

Thomson delivered his remarks, titled “Truth, Trust and Tech,” during the Keith Murdoch Oration at the State Library of Victoria in Australia, criticizing “professional liberals” in the American media for allowing their opinions to supersede their objective reporting of President Trump and his supporters, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

BILL MAHER MOCKS MIDDLE AMERICANS AS LESS ‘AFFLUENT AND EDUCATED,’ SAYING ‘THEY WANT TO BE US’

“Average Americans … do see that the president is challenging a contemporary establishment which regards Middle America as a louche lumpenproletariat, as despicably deplorable,” Thomson said.

“These are decent, thoughtful people — and not the doltish troglodytes that much of the media mocks ceaselessly.”

Thomson, who became News Corp’s global chief executive in 2013, also hit back at a three-part, 20,000-word series on the Murdochs published in The New York Times earlier this month, calling the investigation a “rancid hatchet job” and “distant from the truth,” the Australian Financial Review reported. The Murdoch family owns and operates News Corp and Fox News.

“Smearing Sir Keith, Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch was multi-generational muck-spreading in which the facts were incidental, if not accidental, and the journalistic jaundice and corporate self-interest were fundamental.”

TECHNOLOGY IS ‘A CRIME SCENE’ AND FACEBOOK ‘BROKE DEMOCRACY,’ JOURNALIST WHO EXPOSED CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA SAYS

A persistent critic of “big digital,” Thomson warned that Western leadership has been “sanguinely supine” for too long toward companies such as Facebook and Google, the Morning Herald reported.

“As a result, we have institutionally ingrained some seriously bad behavior and have dominant digital companies culturally ill-equipped to cope with the contemporary challenges,” he said.

These challenges include the journalistic impact of advancements in technology, such as 5G mobile networks and artificial intelligence. Thomson warned such advancements could further weaken a society where “our capacity for empathy” is being tested.

“There is no doubt that our technical ability to create, to distribute and share information and images and much more, will be exponentially enhanced over the coming five years. But that is the contradiction — while we are creating that capability, we are challenging our capacity for empathy.

“So we have the cross-border, and we have the crass-border, the seamless spread of witless nonsense, delivered digitally, globally, endlessly, daily,” Thomson said.

A powerful dust storm, lightning and unseasonal rain have killed at least 30 people in central and western India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a tweet Wednesday expressed anguish over the loss of lives and announced relief for the victims’ families.

Tuesday’s storm had winds touching 50 kilometers per hour (30 miles per hour) and damaged dozens of homes and uprooted trees and power lines in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan states.

Madhya Pradesh state’s top elected official Kamal Nath said at least 10 deaths were reported from Indore and Dhar districts.

The Press Trust of India news agency said another 20 deaths were reported from Gujarat and Rajasthan states.

India’s monsoon season starts in June and ends in September.

Congo’s president says 150 people are reported missing after a boat sank on Lake Kivu in the country’s east.

The motorized boat was headed toward the commercial hub of Goma when it sank Monday evening. Many of the victims were believed to be traders who make the journey each week.

President Felix Tshisekedi says in a Twitter post that officials will work to punish those responsible for the fatal sinking.

Local authorities say only four bodies had been recovered as of late Tuesday, while 35 people had been saved.

Delphin Birimbi, a civil society leader in Mbinga, told the United Nations-backed Radio Okapi that authorities need to step up surveillance of overladen boats, which frequently contribute to fatal accidents.

Spanish TV election debate excludes far-right party

Spain’s Socialist leader and incumbent prime minister Pedro Sanchez has agreed to a single television debate with the lead candidates from three other main parties, following controversy over a potential debate appearance by a surging far-right party.

The Socialist party said Wednesday Sanchez will appear ahead of the April 28 ballot on public broadcaster RTVE with the leaders of the conservative Popular Party, center-right Citizens party and far-left Podemos party.

Sanchez had wanted a debate featuring the anti-immigrant Vox party, which is seeking its first parliamentary seats. Analysts say Sanchez wanted to associate the Popular Party and Citizens party with Vox, which previously have forged a regional alliance.

But the electoral board disallowed that five-way debate, ruling that other small parties would also need to be invited.
