NY's Central park statues to honor 3 women

New York's Central Park will soon feature its first statue displaying the achievements of women when a piece of artwork honoring three famous suffragettes is displayed in the park.

The Guardian reported Monday that the city's Public Design Commission voted to allow the display of a statue by artist Meredith Bergmann depicting Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, three prominent advocates for women's right to vote in the U.S.

The design depicts Truth and Stanton sitting at a table discussing issues while Anthony stands behind the table between them, overlooking the conversation. The statue was reportedly made possible by $1.5 million in private funding raised by the Monumental Women nonprofit.

Pelosi releases 'fact sheet' saying Trump has 'betrayed his oath of office'

Pelosi releases fact sheet showing Trump's abuse of power

Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) office on Monday released a "fact sheet" laying out what Democrats believe is their most compelling evidence to date against President Trump in their investigation of the president's efforts to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate a domestic political rival.

"President Trump has betrayed his oath of office, betrayed our national security and betrayed the integrity of our elections for his own personal political gain," the document states in laying out how Democrats are likely to try to make their case in the impeachment inquiry.

The four-page document divides the narrative into three categories: the "shakedown," "the pressure campaign" and "the cover up."

Trump botches a boast about giving away his presidential salary

Trump botches boast about giving up salary.

Donald Trump boasted on Monday that he's the only other president besides George Washington to forgo his paycheck — but history is not on his side.

“I give away my presidential salary,” Trump told reporters at a gathering of his Cabinet. “They say no other president has done it. I'm surprised, to be honest with you. They say George Washington may have been the only other president to do that. See whether or not Obama gave up his salary. See whether or not all of the other of your favorites, your other favorites gave up their salary. The answer is no.”

TVNL Comment: Another dumb lie.  What a shock!

Israel's Netanyahu gives up effort to form new government

Netanyau gives up attempt to form governmentBenjamin Netanyahu gave up his effort to form a new government on Monday after failing to secure a majority coalition, creating an opportunity for centrist rival Benny Gantz to replace Israel’s longest serving prime minister.

Netanyahu, who heads the right-wing Likud party, said he had been unable to form a government following an election in September, and was returning the mandate back to Israel’s president, Reuven Rivlin. Rivlin said he intends to task Gantz with the job of putting together a new government.

“In the past weeks I made every effort to bring Benny Gantz to the negotiating table, every effort to establish a broad national government, every effort to avoid another election,” said Netanyahu, who turned 70 on Monday.

Two tornadoes confirmed in North Texas

tORNADO DAMAGE in N. Texas

Mayor Eric Johnson said Dallas residents were fortunate that Sunday night's storms have largely only caused property damage.

At least one tornado is believed to have touched down in the Preston Hollow area of the city, decimating homes and businesses.

No deaths have been reported, and three people are in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, city officials said.

"Considering the path that the storm took — you know it went across a pretty densely populated part of our city — I think we should consider ourselves very fortunate that we did not lose any lives," Johnson said during a Monday morning news conference at Dallas City Hall.

The National Weather Service is working to confirm the tornado in Dallas.

Hong Kong protestsHong Kong protesters went on a rampage on Sunday hurling petrol bombs and setting ablaze multiple stores along Kowloon’s main thoroughfare, as police fired tear gas and water cannons which sprayed the entrance of the city’s biggest mosque with blue dye, fueling tensions in the area.

The arson attacks began from around 3 p.m. and lasted for more than eight hours as they set off fires inside mainland-linked businesses and police and metro stations, before gutting a Xiaomi shop and Chinese medicine store Tong Ren Tang in Mong Kok.

As the city marked the 20th weekend of violent protests, demonstrators kicked off an illegal march in Tsim Sha Tsui peacefully but the initial calm dissipated in less than two hours as marauding protesters began blocking roads and throwing bricks and petrol bombs.

Drug companies reach $260 million opioid settlement with Ohio counties, averting landmark trial

US Districy Court, Cleveland

Drug distributors AmerisourceBergen Corp (ABC.N), Cardinal Health Inc (CAH.N) and McKesson Corp (MCK.N) will contribute $215 million toward the settlement, according to Hunter Shkolnik, an attorney for the counties.

Israel-based drugmaker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd TEVA is paying $20 million in cash and will contribute $25 million worth of Suboxone, an opioid addiction treatment, according to Shkolnik.

The deal settles claims brought by Ohio’s Cuyahoga and Summit counties, which had accused the companies of fueling a nationwide opioid crisis. Some 400,000 U.S. overdose deaths between 1997 and 2017 were linked to opioids, according to government data.

US soldiers who fought with Kurds blast Trump moveIn the summer of 2004, U.S. soldier Greg Walker drove to a checkpoint just outside of Baghdad’s Green Zone with his Kurdish bodyguard, Azaz. When he stepped out of his SUV, three Iraqi guards turned him around at gunpoint.

As he walked back to the vehicle, he heard an AK-47 being racked and a hail of cursing in Arabic and Kurdish. He turned to see Azaz facing off with the Iraqis.

“Let us through or I’ll kill you all,” Walker recalled his Kurdish bodyguard telling the Iraqi soldiers, who he described as “terrified.”

He thought to himself: “This is the kind of ally and friend I want.”
