  + stars: | 2021-10-26 | by ( The Associated Press | )   time to read: +5 min
The military dissolved the transitional government of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok as well as the Sovereign Council, a power-sharing body of military officers and civilians that had been ruling Sudan since late 2019. AFP via Getty ImagesGen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan announced that the military would hold power until elections can be held in July 2023. His announcement came hours after the military arrested Hamdok along with several other senior officials and political leaders. The United States, European Union and United Nations have denounced the coup, but much depends on how much leverage they put on Sudan’s military. AFP - Getty ImagesUnder the compromise, the council was to be headed first by military figures before civilians were to lead it.

Biden to attend ASEAN summit Trump skipped after 2017

The U.S. embassy in Brunei told Reuters Biden will lead the U.S. delegation for the ASEAN-United States summit, part of a series of ASEAN leaders' meetings this week. The United States has not joined the meetings at the presidential level since Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, attended an ASEAN-U.S. meeting in Manila in 2017. Analysts say Biden's meeting with the 10-nation bloc reflects his administration's efforts to engage allies and partners in a collective effort to push back against China. U.S. officials, however, have not made specific mention of China in the run-up to the meeting as they work to set up a virtual summit between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping later this year. They expect Biden to focus on collaboration on Covid-19 vaccine distribution, climate, supply chains and infrastructure.

THE GLOBAL ECONOMY: China's economy is teetering on the brink of disaster. If the bottom falls out, the whole world could be dragged down by the collapse of its second-largest economy.

John Thys | AFP | Getty ImagesAmericans aren't buying electric vehicles, they're buying Teslas. But that's starting to change as so-called traditional automakers and start-ups invest billions in a slew of new electric vehicles to compete against Tesla. The influx of EVs — from a couple dozen today to estimates of hundreds of new models by 2025 — are expected to eat away at Tesla's market share in the coming years. "In a growth market, it's extremely challenging to maintain majority market share, regardless of industry. IHS Markit expects electric vehicles to make up about 40% of the U.S. industry by 2030.

CAIRO — Military forces arrested Sudan’s acting prime minister and senior government officials Monday, disrupted internet access and blocked bridges in the capital Khartoum, the country’s information ministry said, describing the actions as a coup. In response, thousands flooded the streets of Khartoum and its twin city of Omdurman to protest the apparent military takeover. Armed forces detained Sudan's Prime Minister over his refusal to support their "coup," the information ministry said, after weeks of tensions. By mid-morning, the information ministry confirmed that the prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, had been arrested and taken to an undisclosed location. At one point, military forces stormed the offices of Sudan’s state-run television in Omdurman and detained a number of workers, the information ministry said.

Kohli was eventually dismissed for the first time by Pakistan in a T20 World Cup when he edged Shaheen's slower-ball bouncer behind on the pull in the penultimate over. Rizwan began Mohammed Shami's 18th over with a six and two fours, before Babar sealed his team's thumping victory with a scampered two to long-on as Pakistan inflicted a first 10-wicket T20I defeat on India.

The leaders of China and Russia said they won't be at this week's COP26 climate-change summit. China emits around 28% of the world's CO2 emissions, while Russia emits around 5%. Their absence is especially significant given their nations' contributions to global emissions, with China producing an estimated 28% and Russia 5% of global CO2 output. Other world leaders at the summit may find it harder to strike a historic agreement on climate change without Xi and Putin around. China emits nearly 28% of the world's global carbon dioxide emissions, according to Our World in Data, more than any other country.

The second vote includes only the two candidates who got the most votes in the earlier round. At the moment, polls project that Marine Le Pen, the candidate from the anti-immigration right-wing party Le Rassemblement National (formerly Front National), will join Macron in the second round. Zemmour — twice convicted in court for racial or religious provocation, according to the Financial Times — is considered even more right wing than Marine Le Pen. Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, is the candidate for the Socialist Party, but currently polling only about 5%. Macron is polling around 24%, with Le Pen at 16% and Zemmour at 15%, according to Politico's Poll of Polls.

CNN's publication of these warnings from within Facebook comes seven months after a Facebook team initially shared an internal report entitled "Coordinated Social Harm." The report, distributed in March, said that armed groups in Ethiopia were using the platform to incite violence against ethnic minorities in the "context of civil war." Its two largest ethnic groups, the Oromo and Amhara, make up more than 60% of the population. "I've seen a lot of a lot of hate speech, that definitely does fuel ethnic violence in Ethiopia," Neguede said. A Facebook page with an INSA-affiliated administrator was also flagged in internal Facebook documents in March, but was not recommended for removal.

MANDEL NGAN/AFP via Getty ImagesDonald Trump is set to receive a 58% stake in the post-merger Trump Media & Technology Group, Bloomberg reported. The former president announced plans last week to take his company public through a merger with Digital World Acquisition Corp., a blank-check company better known as a special purpose acquisition company. Digital World Acquisition quickly turned into a meme stock as retail traders rallied around the future business. A representative from Trump Media & Technology Group did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. Trump's media company didn't provide much in the way of financial statements or outlook upon announcing the merger with Digital World Acquisition.

ISTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that he had ordered 10 foreign ambassadors who called for the release of a jailed philanthropist to be declared persona non grata. Describing the statement as an “impudence,” Erdogan said he had ordered the ambassadors be declared undesirable. “I gave the instruction to our foreign minister and said ‘You will immediately handle the persona non grata declaration of these 10 ambassadors,’” Erdogan said during a rally in the western city of Eskisehir.

Internal researchers said Twitter's algorithm showed bias toward right-wing politicians. Tweets from "accounts from the political right receive more algorithmic amplification," they said. The researchers looked at the content that popped up in the personalized timelines of about 2 million daily users.

The researchers stopped short of saying why, exactly, the right-wing content received greater amplification in users' personal timelines.

China's economy — the 2nd-largest in the world — is teetering on the brink of disaster. But as extreme as these efforts were, they barely made a dent in China's debt bubble. Morgan Stanley estimates that from 2022 to 2025, China's growth will be 0.4 percentage points lower each year than previously estimated — and that's the best-case scenario. If investment contracts sharply, China's growth could drop by 1.2 points lower each year — which in turn would depress economies worldwide. From its inception, the modern Chinese economy has been full of contradictions.

NBC News investigated the cocktail of factors driving Britain’s surge and the lessons that can be gleaned from the country’s experience. The U.K. government's decision to not maintain or reinstate certain Covid containment measures, such as masks being mandatory in enclosed spaces, were also behind the rise, Gurdasani said. While many countries across Europe and around the world have maintained different levels of Covid restrictions, including mask mandates, the British government has remained adamant in its commitment to England’s full reopening. But Gurdasani and Gupta agreed that the arrival of the delta plus variant, which is a mutated version of the delta variant, shouldn't come as much of a surprise. On Wednesday, Javid resisted calls for a "plan B" approach, even as he confirmed that Covid cases in the U.K. could reach 100,000 a day as winter approaches.

US President Joe Biden (R) greets attendees during a commercial break of a CNN town hall at Baltimore Center Stage in Baltimore, Maryland on October 21, 2021. Biden struck a confident note on his $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal and a separate, social spending plan expected to cost under $2 trillion during a CNN town hall event in Baltimore. When asked on CNN whether Democrats were close to a deal, Biden said: "I think so." On Thursday Biden said corporate tax rates are unlikely to be hiked in a spending bill. Instead, he said a separate minimum corporate tax proposal could fund the social programs.

Making matters potentially even worse, U.K. experts are now monitoring a mutation of the delta variant that could be making the virus even more transmissible. While the number of daily deaths and hospitalizations remain far below earlier peaks in the pandemic thanks to Covid vaccines, data shows these numbers are climbing too. On Thursday, the U.K. reported 52,009 new cases and 115 deaths within 28 days of a positive Covid test. That's an increase of 17% from 69,993 new daily cases last week.
