“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

The lawyer a judge appointed to defend her, George Ashford III, is not on the approved list for death penalty cases. But as life without parole displaces capital punishment, the country’s patchwork system of public defense hasn’t kept up. And life-without-parole trials cost thousands of dollars less than death penalty cases. The Texas Legislature authorized the use of life-without-parole sentences in 2005 as an alternative to the death penalty in murder cases. “I choose not to do death penalty cases — because they are time-consuming, and kind of eat up your practice,” he said.

Eye-popping a sum as that might seem, it’s par for the course in Suffolk County. With so much money at stake, the Suffolk County Police Benevolent Association doesn’t leave elections to chance. It has not only a PAC, but also a super PAC that spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on local elections. With those generous salaries, the citizens of Suffolk County have paid for what should be world-class law enforcement. Steve Bellone, the Suffolk County executive who appointed Mr. Burke, says he was fooled by Mr. Burke and Mr. Spota and turned against them when he discovered their “criminal enterprise.” He vows that a new day has dawned.

Election Day in Israel: A Path for Netanyahu

ET Election Day in Israel: A Path for Netanyahu Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s party held a lead in Israel’s fourth election in two years, exit polls projected Tuesday night, giving him a chance of forming a fragile coalition government. The election caps two years of political uncertainty and polarization in which Israel has reeled from election to election to election, failing each time to return a stable government. That decision has split the right-wing bloc that has kept Mr. Netanyahu in power for the past 12 years, and divided voters and parties less by political ideology than by their attitude to Mr. Netanyahu himself. Mr. Netanyahu left Mr. Bennett out of the government that he formed after the September 2020 election. Likud party election campaign banners of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on election day.

Michelle Phan, an early influencer and Ipsy co-founder, confused the beauty community when she stopped posting online in 2015. Two years later, she restarted her makeup line, Em Cosmetics, which she bought back from L’Oréal, and sold her stake in Ipsy. She even built vulnerability into the branding of her makeup line. When I asked Camberos, the beauty executive, where he saw beauty culture today and where it was going, he said it was connected to the issue of mental health. In September, Selena Gomez, who has been open about her bipolar disorder, introduced her own line, Rare Beauty.

(CNN) The horse racing industry is facing renewed scrutiny over animal welfare after footage emerged showing an amateur jockey jumping onto the back of a dead horse. On Tuesday, the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board tweeted that it was "aware of further social media content circulating and the matter is under investigation." The video, which was widely circulated on social media on Monday, shows people laughing and joking when an individual poses on the back of the stricken horse. "The treatment of horses in the racing industry requires a root and branch review by an independent body that should be given statutory powers to force welfare changes on the racing industry as a whole," Animal Aid's Horse Racing Consultant Dene Stansall told CNN Sport. The BHA told CNN Sport it was aware of the latest footage on social media and previously said it had been "appalled" by the images of Elliot.

The CEO and founder of Epic Games has had a knack for picking the right battles while also shoring up his company's independence. If a player downloaded Fortnite from Apple's App Store, for example, Apple would receive a 30% cut of all in-app purchases. Both Google and Apple promptly removed Fortnite from their stores, alleging the company violated their terms of service. "However, we welcome the opportunity to continue our discussions with Epic and bring Fortnite back to Google Play," it added. But Epic Games has little interest in an IPO.

Back-to-back hurricanes Eta and Iota internally displaced more than half a million people in Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, according to International Organization for Migration data. On the election campaign trail, Biden promised a $4 billion plan to address underlying factors driving migration from Central America. MASS UNEMPLOYMENTEven before the storms, Central American nations were reeling from economic crises brought on by the pandemic and mass unemployment led to a steady increase in migration north. Other migrants bypassed the storm shelters, where aid workers fear the overcrowded conditions could lead to a new spike in coronavirus cases, and hit the road immediately.

SCHIPHOL AIRPORT, Netherlands (Reuters) - In cavernous cold-storage warehouses at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, KLM workers are gearing up for a surge next year in COVID-19 vaccine cargos that will need to be flown around the world at ultra-low temperatures. Cooled packages are being transported by airplane at the Schiphol Airport as Air France-KLM's cargo operations are preparing a massive logistical operation carrying new vaccines and vaccine candidates for COVID-19 through Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, Netherlands November 25, 2020. “The short and sweet of it is, yes, we’re ready,” KLM Chief Executive Pieter Elbers told Reuters. Allowed behind strict security at Schiphol on Wednesday, Reuters watched Air France-KLM staff prepare four so-called active containers for a shipment of chilled pharmaceuticals bound for Toronto in Canada. The KLM Cargo warehouse at Schiphol has four cold storage areas for pharmaceuticals and a fifth will be ready in January.
