    Golocal247.com news

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday postponed the forced eviction of a Bedouin village in the occupied West Bank, a government official said. The fate of Khan al-Ahmar has drawn international concern after Israel said it planned to raze the village, a ramshackle camp housing 180 residents. Its residents, backed by foreign activists who have gathered at the site, have been waiting for bulldozers to move in at any time after an Oct. 1 deadline from Israel for the villagers to demolish their own homes expired.

    An AstraZeneca drug that blocks a cancer cell's ability to repair its genetic code greatly reduced the risk of ovarian cancer worsening in a phase III trial, underpinning its lead against two U.S. rivals in the same class. Given as a maintenance therapy to reinforce initial chemotherapy, Lynparza halted or reversed tumor growth in 60 percent of patients three years into the trial. At year four, the progression-free survival (PFS) rate in the Lynparza group was still above 50 percent, against 11 percent for chemotherapy alone.

  • This fifth grader's baked potato costume is better than whatever you've planned for Halloween

    Golocal247.com news

    This is One Good Thing , a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week. Halloween is fast approaching and while you may think your planned costume's impressive, there's a very good chance it won't top this fifth grader who dressed as a baked potato. Reddit user seal2781, a 24-year-old named Celia, recently shared a throwback Halloween picture from 2004 — the year she followed her heart and dressed as a baked potato wrapped in foil with a li'l pat of butter on top. Precious! Delicious! All around wholesome! The costume is one of the closest things we've seen to absolute Halloween perfection, and the kind of ensemble we should all strive to put together this time of year. If you're having doubts about how great it is, we're not exaggerating. See for yourself... SEE ALSO: This Kevin from 'The Office' Halloween costume for babies needs to exist IRL Celia told Mashable via Reddit that she fashioned the wearable baked potato for her elementary school Halloween costume contest. The costume won first prize and for that, she received a whole $5!  "The day before the contest I decided I wanted to be a baked potato," she wrote. "I'm not really sure why — I just thought it would be funny." She says her dad Ron helped make the costume out of cardboard boxes. "We covered the boxes in wide plastic wrap to hold it all together, and then covered it in foil and added the fluff and brown paper 'skin.' The pad of butter was just a small pizza box covered in yellow cellophane paper." The baked potato has everything you'd want from a good costume. The homemade aspect shows off your resourceful side, it'll give people a good laugh, and you'll also stand out from a crowd of store bought superheroes, princesses, and more. Though it does have one downfall... "The main thing I remember about the costume was how hot it was. I really felt like a baked potato wearing it," Celia said. But still, an overall success. Celia's family has been cranking out next-level costumes for years, she explained, recalling her brother's most memorable ensemble: a massive five-foot tall baseball bat. Stunning.

    Israel ordered the country's goods and people border crossings with Gaza to be opened on Sunday, just four days after shuttering them following a Palestinian rocket attack that sparked retaliatory air strikes. The move followed efforts to prevent an escalation in violence that has raised fears of a new war between Israel and the Palestinian territory's Islamist rulers Hamas. "The decision comes after a decrease in the violent events in Gaza over the weekend and efforts Hamas made to restrain" demonstrators, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman's office said in a statement.

  • Novartis drug cut death risk by 35 percent in gene mutation breast cancer

    Golocal247.com news

    The Swiss drugmaker's BYL719, a so-called PI3K inhibitor also known as alpelisib, combined with hormone therapy fulvestrant boosted median progression-free survival (PFS) to 11 months, up from 5.7 months for patients who got only hormone therapy, the company said on Saturday. BYL719 plus fulvestrant cut risk of death or progression in those patients by an estimated 35 percent, Novartis said. Novartis said earlier this year that this study, called SOLAR-1, of hormone receptor positive, HER2- breast cancer with mutations of the PIK3CA gene showed that YL719 helped patients.

    Afghan election workers began counting votes on Saturday following a partial legislative ballot tarnished by scores of deadly militant attacks, technical glitches and administrative chaos. Nearly 170 people -- civilians and security forces -- were killed or wounded in election-related violence, official figures showed, and there are fears of more bloodshed when voting resumes Sunday in 401 polling centres. "Inevitable" problems with biometric verification devices, which were introduced at the eleventh hour, as well as missing voter registration lists and lack of staffing delayed or even prevented voting at those polling sites, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) told reporters.

  • Royal tour: Duke and Duchess of Sussex unveil Sydney's Anzac memorial

    Golocal247.com news

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have paid tribute to Australia’s war dead as they attended the unveiling of an Anzac memorial 84 years in the making. The Anzac Memorial in Sydney’s Hyde Park, which commemorates the sacrifices made by those who served for Australia and New Zealand, was designed in the 1930s by Bruce Dellitt.  But following the Great Depression, the finances were not available to make Mr Dellitt's vision -  including a four-tier cascading waterfall on the Liverpool Street side of the monument - a reality. The Duke, wearing the tropical dress of his regiment, the Blues and Royals, with medals, KCVO and sword, and Duchess, wearing an Emilia Wickstead dress and Philip Tracey hat, were met by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Premier of New South Wales Gladys Berejiklian and David Elliott, minister for Veterans Affairs on an overcast Sydney morning.  There were also crowds along Liverpool Street, while more people - and a cardboard cutout of Harry and Meghan - watched on from balconies as the royals arrived.

The girls, aged nine, are from the Koomurri Aboriginal Dance Troupe and both said they were nervous about meeting and performing for Harry and Meghan. Krystal, who did an Aboriginal art floral painting, said: "They said hi and 'nice to meet you'." The medallion, presented by Sienna, said "play the game", the motto of the Beverly Hills public school which they attend.

The Sussexes will visit the Hall Of Service, which contains 1,700 soil samples from each town, suburb and district in New South Wales listed as an address for First World War enlistees.  The completion of the extension, which cost £22 million, coincides with the 100th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities in the war.

  • Rashida Tlaib: Meet the Democrat poised to be first Muslim woman in Congress 

    Golocal247.com news

    Barring a freak result, Rashida Tlaib is set to be the first Muslim woman in Congress, and for this she has to thank the unlikely figure of Donald Trump.  "Trump was a bit of a Bat-Signal for women in general of being engaged," she says, talking while out on the campaign trail in Detroit. Congress as it stands is far from diverse - over 90 per cent of members are Christian, 5.6 per cent are Jewish and the Muslim members (both of them) are heavily outflanked by Mormons, of whom there are 13.  Despite the fact there are more women in the Senate and House of Representatives than at any other point since 1789, they still only make up 20 per cent of its membership.  Looking across the country, Ms Tlaib believes there is a "sense of urgency" driving Left-wing and female voters in the midterm elections, which will see seats in the Senate, House and state-wide positions up for grabs. "I remember when people came to vote for Barack Obama and there was kind of a waltz to it, it was like this confidence and people were excited to vote,” she says. "This time, people are marching. It’s like, 'move out the way I’ve got to do this.'" A police officer arresting Rashida Tlaib following a protest calling for higher pay Credit: AP Ms Tlaib's ascent came after five years in local politics, when a wave of grassroots support saw her win the Democratic nomination for the House of Representatives in her home district in Detroit, Michigan. A surge in first-time voters was credited with giving her the win. Now, since there is no Republican opponent standing in the deeply blue district, she is all but sure to win a seat in Congress on November 6. Ms Tlaib is just one of a number of 'firsts' that could come this year - the first Native American congresswoman, the first transgender governor and the first black female governor could all be elected at the midterms on November 6. Change is afoot, not just when it comes to gender. Around 90 Muslim candidates are running for elected office this year – the highest number at any point since the September 11 attack in 2001, according to political advocacy group JetPac.  Women candidates for the House if Representatives Born to Palestinian immigrants and the eldest of 14 children, Ms Tlaib first garnered national attention two years ago when she was arrested for heckling Mr Trump during a speech in Detroit. Ms Tlaib is not a particularly conservative Muslim but her faith is an important part of her life. The gruelling campaign schedule did not stop her from fasting for Ramadan this June, ahead of the Democratic primary vote. "It's not about just being out there and flaunting your faith," she told CNN earlier this year. "I always tell people that I'm exposing Islam in such a pivotal way, an impactful way, through public service." Her political rise has not been without fractious moments. Once, as a state legislature, she says the chair of a committee jokingly asked for her birth certificate. “He thought it was very funny,” she says. “I was very much seen by some of my colleagues as nothing but a Muslim and in their eyes that meant I was less than them I’m sure." The incident mirrored Mr Trump's repeated demands that Barack Obama reveal his birth certificate during his time as president, in a stunt that riled the Republican base. Women candidates for the Senate But Ms Tlaib says her experience of prejudice was largely a one-off. "The majority of my colleagues treated me very well," she says Her election success is part of a wider trend – a swell of women, people of colour and first-time candidates have won Democratic primaries. She points to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, her friend and fellow member of the left-wing group Justice Democrats, who at 29 is set to become the youngest ever congresswoman. Rashida Tlaib celebrates at her campaign headquarters in Detroit after winning the Democratic primary race  Credit: NYTNS / Redux / eyevine  The group have been campaigning on a promise to shake up Congress with vows to abolish America's Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known by its acronym ICE, refusing to take donations from corporations. Ms Tlaib believes a deeper momentum has been building for years, but she credits part of the surge to the Trump presidency. “I think he pushed us over the cliff,” she says. “I feel like we go through stages in the United States with all parties where a new group or generation - in this case a generation of women - who are running for office because they see injustice and they feel a sense of need to speak up and not be silenced”. She accepts that there is still Islamophobia, but she draws hope from the Muslim candidates now becoming politicians. “Muslims are now saying: ‘Okay we’re not going to be still’," she says.

    The migrants pose a tough challenge to the Mexican government's pledge to stop the illegal travelers' plans to press ahead to the U.S. border. More than 5,100 migrants have been registered in three shelters in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo, while another 2,000 had camped out for the night in the town's central square, said Gerardo Hernandez, head of the local government's emergency services. "So far, they're all peaceful, thank God." In a statement on Saturday night, Mexico's federal government said "nearly 900 migrants" had arrived by unauthorized means, while 640 had been processed after being allowed to cross into the country via the international border crossing on the Suchite River that divides Guatemala from Mexico.

U.S. President Donald Trump emphasized on Saturday that he was not satisfied with the Saudis' handling of the case, further raising questions over whether he would act to impose sanctions on Saudi officials believed to be behind Khashoggi's death. "It would be premature to comment on sanctions and premature to comment on really any issues until we get further down the investigation and get to the bottom of what occurred," Mnuchin told reporters in Jerusalem at the start of a Middle East visit.
