On Saturday, Thaqif slipped into a coma after both his legs were amputated by HSI doctors the day before in a desperate bid to prevent infection to tissues and blood cells in his body. Doctors later found that his right hand had turned black due to a bacterial infection and blood clots had started to form on his left shoulder and they informed his family that his arm had also turned necrotic. Thaqif had received blood-thinning medication to treat infections in his right arm and left shoulder, and the family is expected to know soon if the right arm needs to be amputated. The boy's aunt Dzuraidah Ahmad, 38, said the boy's condition had not improved and his right arm and fingers have turned black again after showing signs of recovery on Sunday. She added that doctors told them that only the forearm below the elbow would be amputated if needed. The boy's mother Felda Wani Ahmad said her son had enrolled in the tahfiz school on Jan 27 and was very happy there initially.

Among the Europeans living in Kuala Lumpur at the time were two Scottish brothers: John and Clem Glassford. They were coffee planters and their estate was in Setapak, just outside Kuala Lumpur. The Scotsmen took steps to set up golfing amenities in Kuala Lumpur. As a first step, they put up a notice in the local weekly for the Europeans, the Selangor Journal. The 13th January 1893 edition of the Selangor Journal carried this curt notice: "A meeting will be held at the Selangor Club on Saturday, Jan 21 at 6 pm to consider the advisability of forming a golf club in Kuala Lumpur. All interested are invited." The meeting was duly held on Jan 21, 1893. Thirty European men were present. On June 24, 1893, a group of 30 Europeans residing in Selangor assembled for a meeting at the Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur to formally resolve to establish the Selangor Golf Club.

"The single most important thing I can do is to help in any way I can to prepare the next generation of leadership to take up the baton and to take their own crack at changing the world," he said. Obama took a few questions from the participants on stage, but mainly listened – and did not offer any substantive commentary on how Trump is doing, in keeping with presidential protocol, which dictates that past residents of the White House do not step on the toes of the current occupant. Until Monday, he had not given a public speech or an interview since leaving the White House on Jan 20. He has tweeted a few times and issued a few statements through a spokesman, notably to defend his signature domestic policy achievement, health care reform – which Trump's Republicans are now hoping to dismantle. "I was glad that (Trump) didn't come up," said Raquel Navarro, 22, who was in the audience.

Shortly after Trump was inaugurated on Jan. 20, Josh Holt’s mother, Laurie, released a video asking the new president to do more to help free her son. She is in Washington this week to meet with lawmakers and members of the administration about her son’s case. She believes that Venezuela, which still retains important trade links to the United States and which indirectly donated $500,000 to Trump’s inauguration, will be more responsive to tough talk than sweet talk. “I voted for Trump because I felt like the way he goes about things, that it would, maybe, make Venezuela be afraid because they dont know what he’s going to do,” Laurie Holt said in an interview. “Something has to give somewhere.”

77 billion (RM12 billion) to South Africa's gross domestic product. "We need to get better prices for our wine," says Heyns. "South African brands are often viewed as value for money only. That needs to shift for quality, image and branding." Forrester agrees, lamenting exports of mainly cheap wines, calling it "a bad mistake because this positioned us incorrectly in the market place". Former Springboks flanker Jan Bolen" Coetzee wore the national side's jersey six times before following his forebears and buying a vineyard in Stellenbosch in 1980. Coetzee, now 72, is critical of the recent quantitative rather than qualitative approach, even though South Africa is now the world's eighth largest wine producer. "When the market opened up to exports in 1994, everybody was curious about South African. But instead of selling our better wines, we were selling bulk wines by millions of litres.

If there is such a thing as a Trump Effect in European politics, its not unfolding quite the way that Europes liberals had feared. No stampede of dark horses from the nationalist fringe has come trampling across the European Union. No other countries have yet followed the British to the exit. Instead, the leaders of the right seem to be suffering one setback after another, which is all the more remarkable given how confident they felt just a few months ago. On Jan. 21, the day after Donald Trumps inauguration, the leaders of Europes main right-wing parties gathered in the German city of Koblenz to celebrate the return of nationalism to both American and European politics. The headliner at their summit was Marine Le Pen, the leader of Frances National Front, who declared from the stage that, Were living through the death of one world and the birth of a new world.

Other Resistance leaders piled on, too: The Daily Kos; Center for American Progress president and close Clinton adviser Neeera Tanden; and former Vermont Governor and ex-Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean all voiced their opinion that Gabbard should face a primary challenge in 2018. Indeed, according to Dean, the heath insurance lobbyist, “Gabbard should not be in Congress.” Of course, all the handwringing over Gabbard’s comments were simply another opportunity for the right-minded to double down on their criticism of Gabbard’s controversial meeting with Syria’s Bashar al-Assad in January. Then as now, the Washington Post was at the forefront of the character attacks, running a piece by Josh Rogin titled “How Tulsi Gabbard became Assad’s mouthpiece in Washington” on Jan. 29. Yet Rogin’s piece was so sloppy and error-ridden that the Post had to append a humiliating paragraph long correction to it after it was published.

Wilhelm Landig and the Black Sun Mr. Landig died only 20 years ago in 1997. Some of his interviews are still available on Youtube, like the one shown below. This video is spoken entirely in German by Landig and his host Jan van Helsing. Landig had quite a bit to say about the post-war Nazi revival in Antarctica. I have not determined the precise recording date of this interview but I surmise that it was produced sometime between 1985 and 1995. My transcription below is very paraphrased because the translation that follows here is in very rough English. But you can follow along well enough. It is insanely interesting. On page 8 of the PDF transcript [ linked here ], the host, Jan van Helsing, asks: “Where did the Germans go after the war? Who has survived abroad?” Landig answers: “This is a delicate issue. Prominent bigwigs of the 3rd Reich. Nazi party officials were given bank passwords but some of these people disappeared.

CAPE TOWN: In a case that has gripped South Africa, the 22-year-old son of a wealthy family pleaded not guilty Monday to slaughtering his parents and brother in a frenzied axe attack. The trial, which opened in Cape Town after several delays, has attracted international interest as police failed to arrest anyone for the grisly killings until Henri van Breda handed himself in to police. Van Breda is alleged to have killed his brother Rudi and parents Martin and Teresa, and left his sister Marli struggling with near-fatal injuries to her head, neck and throat. The events took place on Jan 27, 2015 at the family's luxury home at an exclusive golf estate in Stellenbosch outside Cape Town, where they lived after returning from several years in Australia. At the Western Cape High Court, van Breda, dressed in a suit and tie, quietly said "not guilty" to three counts of murder and one of attempted murder.

A few weeks after the prisoner swap, a judge sentenced Cheng to nine years in federal prison, even more than the prosecutors asked for, for his role in the conspiracy. Cheng’s lawyer, Stephen Weymouth, accused federal prosecutors of unfair treatment, saying they threw the book at his client, a relatively small fish, while dropping all charges against the “mastermind,” Jamili. Since the swap, federal authorities have learned more about Jamili, including intelligence tying him directly to Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, a top Iranian nuclear official who supervised a keycommercial affairsinitiative at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, according to officials familiar with the case. Authorities believe Jamili was on the phone with Ahmadi-Roshan on Jan. 11, 2012, when unknown assailants on a motorbike killed him by attaching a bomb to his car. Tehran accused Israel’s Mossad in the attack.
