Israel Pushes Deeper Into Rafah, but Gaza Exit Plan Remains Unclear

Israel Pushes Deeper Into Rafah, but Gaza Exit Plan Remains Unclear

[ad_1] The Israeli military said on Friday that its forces had advanced into central Rafah, pushing even more deeply into the southern Gaza city despite an international backlash and pressure from allies to scale back the latest offensive and agree to a cease-fire. Israeli special forces were engaging in “intelligence-based targeted raids” in central Rafah, the Israeli military said in a statement. It added that troops were performing “focused and low-intensity operations” in the city. On Wednesday, the military announced that it had established “operational control” over the border zone with Egypt, an eight-mile-long strip known as the Philadelphi Corridor on the outskirts of Rafah. Commercially available satellite imagery taken by Planet Labs on Thursday showed that the Israeli military had set up positions in parts of central Rafah, while military vehicles and tanks could be seen as far as the outskirts of the Tel al-Sultan area in western Rafah. As the fighting raged in Gaza, President Biden said Friday in Washington that it was time to end the war and bring about a cease-fire. …

Gen-Zers Slide Deeper Into Debt As Bidenomics Failure Crushes America’s Future Leaders 

Gen-Zers Slide Deeper Into Debt As Bidenomics Failure Crushes America’s Future Leaders 

[ad_1] It may seem crazy, but here’s some advice for heavily indebted Gen-Zers: Put down the smartphone. Stop spending on DoorDash and Uber Eats. Perhaps cancel a few streaming services. Also, the spending party is over despite calls from the White House to cancel student debt.  The rising debt load Gen-Zers are carrying is alarming. The average credit-card balance for 22- to 24-year-olds was $2,834 in 1Q23, compared with an average inflation-adjusted balance of $2,248 in the same period in 2013, according to Wall Street Journal, citing new data from credit-reporting agency TransUnion.  The youngest generation is coming to age during a time when Bidenomics has been a complete failure, and these kids are spending themselves in financial ruin.  “This is a generation that is feeling financial stress in a more acute way than millennials did a decade ago,” said Charlie Wise, head of global research at TransUnion. On Tuesday, Billionaire investor and Duquesne Family Office Chairman & CEO Stan Druckenmiller slammed Bidenomics and warned the Federal Reserve and federal government “misdiagnosed Covid and thought it was — we were going into a depression.” …

Surface water extends much deeper into the Earth than scientists previously thought

Surface water extends much deeper into the Earth than scientists previously thought

[ad_1] For decades, a puzzling layer, known as the E’ layer, has resided just above Earth’s outer core. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) For decades, a puzzling layer, known as the E’ layer, has resided just above Earth’s outer core. This thin zone, roughly 200 kilometers thick, has eluded explanation by scientists. However, a recent study published in Nature Geoscience sheds light on its origin, revealing a surprising connection between Earth’s surface water and its metallic core. The international research team, which included Arizona State University‘s Dan Shim, Taehyun Kim, and Joseph O’Rourke, proposes that water from Earth’s surface journeys deep into the planet’s interior through a process called subduction. Tectonic plates, the large, mobile slabs of Earth’s crust and upper mantle, carry this water down to the core-mantle boundary, a scorching zone approximately 1,800 miles below the surface. Here, the water triggers a significant chemical reaction, fundamentally altering the composition of the outermost region of the core. Using high-pressure experiments, the researchers, along with Yong Jae Lee from Yonsei University in South Korea, mimicked the conditions …

Singapore, Malaysia have issues to work through but bonds ‘go deeper’ than economic cooperation: President Tharman

Singapore, Malaysia have issues to work through but bonds ‘go deeper’ than economic cooperation: President Tharman

[ad_1] Before the state banquet, Mr Tharman and Sultan Ibrahim unveiled designs for four stamps that will be jointly issued by SingPost and Post Malaysia to mark the centennial anniversary of the Causeway. “They are timely reminders of how this busiest land crossing in the world is not just a physical connection between our two countries, but a symbol of the permanent bonds that exist between us,” said Mr Tharman.  Singapore and Malaysia will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations next year, he noted.  Through the Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone, the two countries aim to explore ways to enhance cross-border connectivity, strengthen the development of human resources and drive cooperation in key growth sectors like renewable energy, said Mr Tharman.  “In doing so, we hope to strengthen the broader economic interlinkages between Singapore and Malaysia for our benefit.” But the bonds between the two countries “go deeper than economic cooperation”, he added, stressing that the shared cultural heritage should be “celebrated and renewed”.  “Whether through educational, sporting or artistic exchanges, …

‘Shogun’ Star Hiroyuki Sanada Reveals Finale’s Deeper Message

‘Shogun’ Star Hiroyuki Sanada Reveals Finale’s Deeper Message

[ad_1] [This story contains major spoilers from the season finale of FX’s Shōgun.] It’s easy to picture Japanese actor Hiroyuki Sanada gazing toward the horizon with a beatific sense of satisfaction over everything he has achieved with FX’s smash-hit miniseries Shōgun. His character, Lord Yoshii Toranaga, enjoys several such moments in the show’s 10th and last episode, A Dream of a Dream, as his patient, masterful strategizing finally yields precisely the outcome he desires: absolute power for himself and peace for all of Japan.  Sanada’s moment of career triumph is not dissimilar in its decade-spanning tirelessness (at least, in entertainment industry terms). He began performing nearly 60 years ago as a child in Japan, apprenticing under the legendary actor Sonny Chiba on the way to becoming a major local star, before breaking into Hollywood with roles in projects like The Last Samurai, Lost, The Wolverine, Avengers: Endgame, Bullet Train, John Wick: Chapter 4 and many others. But now, he is the star of what many analysts believe to be Disney‘s most-watched streaming series to date, a show …

Russia says deeper US hybrid war using Ukraine will end in Vietnam-style humiliation

Russia says deeper US hybrid war using Ukraine will end in Vietnam-style humiliation

[ad_1] MOSCOW: Russia said on Sunday (Apr 21) that US lawmakers’ approval of US$60.84 billion more in support for Ukraine showed that Washington was wading deeper into a hybrid war with Russia that would end in humiliation on a par with Vietnam or Afghanistan. President Vladimir Putin’s 2022 full-scale invasion of Ukraine has triggered the worst crisis in relations between Russia and the West since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, according to Russian and US diplomats. The US House of Representatives on Saturday with broad bipartisan support passed a US$95 billion legislative package providing security assistance to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, over bitter objections from some Republicans. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that it was clear that the United States wanted Ukraine “to fight to the last Ukrainian” including with attacks on Russian sovereign territory and civilians. “Washington’s deeper and deeper immersion in the hybrid war against Russia will turn into such a loud and humiliating fiasco for United States as Vietnam and Afghanistan,” Zakharova said. She said that ordinary Ukrainians were being …

Latest “masculinity influencer”: Another dudebro guiding followers into deeper loneliness

Latest “masculinity influencer”: Another dudebro guiding followers into deeper loneliness

[ad_1] Andrew Tate may be facing a mounting number of international charges for alleged sex crimes, but this doesn’t mean we’ve seen the end of “masculinity influencers” who make big bucks by preying upon the the insecurities of young men. On Tuesday, Ben Terris of the Washington Post profiled Nick Adams, a self-described “Alpha Male” who wins over young men with an is-he-kidding shtick focused on the ever-present threat of emasculation supposedly posed by everything from liberals to girlfriends to salmon entrées at restaurants.  Like most similar marketers of so-called masculinity, Adams targets young men’s fears of loneliness or failure — which are no doubt both real and prevalent — with the false promise that embracing aggressive misogyny is the key to achieving your dreams. Adams has evidently cashed in because he’s good at employing faux-irony in order to push his message. Terris, who has an eye for telling details, zeroes in on excellent examples of the “jokey but serious” rhetoric. In one of his swears-they’re-true stories, for instance, Adams described lecturing a date: “You …

3 Deeper Reasons Behind Your Child’s Temper Tantrums

3 Deeper Reasons Behind Your Child’s Temper Tantrums

[ad_1] Helena Lopes / Unsplash Few things are as frustrating to a parent as feeling like your child simply isn’t listening. Whether it’s refusing to follow instructions, tuning out during conversations, or simply appearing disinterested, the struggle to get your child to pay attention can be both exhausting and disheartening. However, before you chalk it up to mere defiance or a lack of discipline, it’s important to consider the deeper psychological reasons behind your child’s behavior. Understanding the root causes of why your child won’t listen is the first step toward fostering better communication and connection within your family. Here are three common explanations for why children, whether adolescents or toddlers, may find it challenging to pay attention, along with practical strategies to help you effectively engage with your child. 1. Your Child May Be Stressed and Overwhelmed Children, adolescents, middle schoolers, and toddlers alike encounter stress in various forms, although they may express it differently from adults. With the ever-increasing demands of academics, the complexities of social interactions, and the pervasive influence of digital …

“It’s A Far Deeper Recession Than Publicized…” Dallas Fed Manufacturing Survey Screams Stagflation

“It’s A Far Deeper Recession Than Publicized…” Dallas Fed Manufacturing Survey Screams Stagflation

[ad_1] “Many good things may happen, but the actual occurrence remains to be seen…” That’s about as rosy a picture as one could glean from the respondents to today’s Dallas Fed Manufacturing survey. Against expectations of a small improvement from -11.3 to -10.0, the headline sentiment gauge dropped to -14.4 (the lowest end of analysts’ forecasts). Furthermore, the production index, a key measure of state manufacturing conditions, fell five points to -4.1, a reading that suggests a slight decline in output month over month. Other measures of manufacturing activity also indicated declines this month. The new orders index – a key measure of demand – dropped 17 points to -11.8 after briefly turning positive last month. The capacity utilization index edged down five points to -5.7, and the shipments index plunged from 0.1 to -15.4. The decline in new orders came alongside a surge in prices as raw materials costs rose to 13-month highs… Source: Bloomberg That has the stench of stagflation lathered all over it. It’s notr a pretty picture at all under the …
