Meng Wanzhou was detained while transferring between flights in Vancouver

China is demanding the release of telecoms giant Huawei's chief financial officer, who has been detained in Canada.

Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of the company's founder, could face extradition to the US.

She was arrested in Vancouver on 1 December, but the news was not made public at her request.

The charges remain unknown but the US has been probing Huawei over possible violation of sanctions against Iran.

China says her detention is possibly a rights abuse.


George Soros-Founded University Kicked Out of Hungary

George SorosCentral European University, a college founded by the liberal financier George Soros, has been kicked out Hungary, its home country, the university said Monday.

The government—led by far-right Prime Minister Viktor Orban—refused to acknowledge an agreement that would enable the school to admit new students in Hungary, forcing them to move to Vienna.

The ousting marks the first time a university has been forced out of a European Union nation. The university was founded a quarter-century ago after communism’s collapse in Central and Eastern Europe, and, despite its consideration as one of the world’s best graduate schools, has come under repeated attack by Orban, whose nationalist philosophy conflicts with the Hungarian-American Soros’ liberalism.


Trump cancels G-20 meeting with Putin, citing Ukraine crisis; decision follows Michael Cohen guilty plea in Russia probe

Putin meeting canceled at G20President Donald Trump on Thursday abruptly canceled his meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin at this weekend's G-20 summit in Argentina.

Trump in two tweets blamed the cancellation of Saturday's expected encounter with Putin on the failure of Russia to return three ships and their sailors seized from Ukraine last weekend in the Black Sea.

But the social-media scuttling of the sitdown came an hour after he personally told reporters that he would probably meet with Putin.


Climate Scientist Katharine Hayhoe Accuses CNN of Bumping Her Expertise for Rick Santorum

CNN accused of bumping climate scientist for Rick Santorum

Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist and co-author of the recently released U.S. National Climate Assessment, was supposed to be Anderson Cooper’s guest during CNN’s primetime broadcast Tuesday night.

She even pre-taped the appearance for AC360, but when the live show aired, it was nowhere to be seen.

For Hayhoe, this was yet another example of cable news favoring climate deniers over climate scientists.

After she realized what happened, Hayhoe tweeted a thread accusing CNN of bumping her to make room for paid contributor Rick Santorum, who made news over the weekend by spreading a conspiracy theory about scientists getting rich pushing climate-change alarmism during an appearance on that same network’s State of the Union.


White House drops bid to revoke Acosta's press pass

Jim Acosta to keep WH passThe White House is dropping its effort to strip CNN reporter Jim Acosta of his press credentials, a defeat for President Trump in his campaign against the news media
The reversal comes after the White House notified Acosta last Friday it may renew its attempts to revoke his press pass after a judge's order restoring it expired. The White House set a Sunday deadline for Acosta to object and said it would make a final decision by 3 p.m. on Monday.
"Having received a formal reply from your counsel to our letter of November 16, we have made a final determination in this process: your hard pass is restored," the White House said in a new letter to Acosta.
