A Swedish police officer is now being investigated for pointing out that migrants are responsible for many crimes in his country, but a retired senior colleague has also spoken out on the phenomenon and called out Europes open borders for increasing crime in the formerly peaceful nation. Breitbart London spoke to recently retired Swedish police officer Torsten Elofsson in 2015 as his heavily resettled home city of Malmo was experiencing a serious spike in attacks committed by migrant communities with smuggled hand grenades. The former INTERPOL officer and director of Swedish criminal intelligence division said the population of the city, which has been the first point of entry for tens of thousands of illegal migrants as they moved north through Europe into Scandinavia, had gone up by 50 per cent in two decades but the number of officers to police it had halved.

HOW America was originally colonised is a topic of perennial interest at the AAAS. Until recently, the earliest uncontested archaeological evidence of people living in the New World came from Swan Point, in Alaska. This dates back 14,400 years. Linguists, however, maintain that the diversity of native languages in the Americas could not have arisen so quickly. Conventional models of linguistic evolution assume tongues separate in the way populations of organisms do—so that the flow of vowels, words and grammatical structures between groups must cease before new languages can emerge, just as a cessation of gene flow gives rise to new species. This suggests it would take at least 50,000 years for a single population speaking a single language to diversify and spread through the Americas in a way that yielded the pattern heard today. Since Native Americansgenes do, indeed, indicate they all derive from a single population, this discrepancy in timing is a paradox.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) had a couple strange moments during her speech Friday before Families USA, an activist group fighting the repeal of Obamacare. Pelosi told the audience when to clap and called a former colleague the governor of the wrong state. A video montage showed her missteps during the speech, the American Mirror reported Wednesday. Pelosi first told the audience when to clap after she did not get the reaction she wanted. "When I said, We could not have done it without Families USA,' that is an applause line for you," she said. The audience laughed. Pelosi did it again when she gave a shout out to recently named executive director of Families USA, Frederick Isasi. "I look forward to continuing work with Families USA under your leadership," Pelosi said. "Thank you and congratulations. Applause line!" The audience did applaud.

YAKS graze on grassland near the turquoise waters of Karakul, a lake in the far western region of Xinjiang. Further south, towards the border with Pakistan, the imposing walls of a ruined hilltop fort at Tashkurgan mark a stop on the ancient Silk Road (see map). With such a rich landscape and history this region should be a magnet for Chinese tourists. Instead the area that accounts for more than one-sixth of China’s land mass is better known for violent unrest. The picturesque charms of the lake and fort can be enjoyed in near solitude. For decades Xinjiang has been racked by a low-level insurgency involving ethnic Uighurs—a mostly Muslim minority many of whose members chafe at rule from Beijing. Most recently, on February 14th, attackers with knives killed five people and injured another five in a remote oasis town. Thousands of paramilitary troops have since paraded through three cities in Xinjiang in shows of “thunderous poweraimed at Uighur terrorists. Continue reading

Chelsea are seemingly running away with the Premier League. They're eight points clear of second-place Manchester City and are going strong in the FA Cup, too, meaning manager Antonio Conte is on course to record a league and cup double in his first season at Stamford Bridge. It's a far cry from where they were at the same stage of 2015-16, when the Blues faced the reality of missing out on European football altogether as they collapsed spectacularly in the defence of their Premier League crown. Chelsea's position of strength now couldn't have been imagined as recently as the start of this season. As brilliant as they have been, Conte's men have had to negotiate some tough periods this term when their campaign was under threat. From negotiating the frustrations of the transfer market to disappointing defeats, Chelsea have seen it all. Their path to the top hasn't been plain sailing.

More than 30,000 current and former police officers in Hong Kong took to the streets late Wednesday night, in a show of support for colleagues who were recently convicted of assaulting an activist during the 2014 Occupy protests. The mass demonstrations were described as the largest gathering of police officers the city has seen in half a century. While the police have every right to exercise their freedom of speech and assembly, many supportersacts and harsh comments toward the judge may have constituted contempt of court and posed a challenge to the city’s rule of law, analysts say. Discontent Joe Chan, chairman of the Junior Police OfficersAssociation — one of the organizers, told the rally that his association and three other police staff groups would soon write to the city’s chief executive, urging legislation that bans insults against public officers on duty including the police, the South China Morning Post reported.

This has enormous implications for a country which has an estimated 917 active hate groups , according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Facebook user Evan Parish Matthews posted this photo depicting a Philadelphia Police Officer Ian Hans Lichtermann sporting a Nazi-inspired tattoo in late 2016. For starters, the United States would be moving needed attention away from groups and individuals involved in hundreds of bombing plots, shootings, and other violent events on American soil, including white supremacists and other non-Muslim right-wing extremists. Since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 there have been at least 32 attacks perpetrated by white non-Muslim extremists all of which have resulted in casualties. In North Carolina, a group of conservative activists met recently at a local restaurant to discuss what they believe to be the problem with Muslims and how to respond.

The PAC was set up to help the eventual Republican nominee, but the RGA has already begun targeting one Democratic primary candidate, former U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello, on social media. RGA Chairman and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker recently called on Perriello to apologize for statements that compared the election of Trump to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Four Republicans and two Democrats have declared their candidacy for the office, with ample time for more to enter the race before the June 13 primary elections. With two far-left and extreme candidates in the Democrat primary, Republicans have a strong opportunity to win the Virginia governorship this November. RGA spokesman Jon Thompson said in an email. If the RGA sees an opportunity to make a difference in the general election, we certainly may invest our resources. The DGA did not respond to requests for comment.

Apple is widely expected to launch its first iPhone with wireless charging capabilities later this year, but rumors remain conflicting about whether the feature will be based on inductive technology , which would require a charging pad or puck, or a truly wireless long-range charging solution . Apple recently joined the Wireless Power Consortium , a group of over 200 companies backing the Qi wireless charging standard, perhaps signaling that it is leaning towards an inductive solution. After all, the Apple Watch uses Qi, albeit a tweaked version that only works with Apple's own charger. Qi, pronounced "chee," is capable of scaling from less than 1 watt to more than 2,000 watts of power, making the standard more than adequate enough for charging any smartphone. Its backing members include Samsung, LG, HTC, Qualcomm, Dell, Canon, Sony, Huawei, Apple supplier Luxshare, and others.

A radical new design is not expected, according to analysts. Some of the anticipated new technologies, notably wireless charging, remain messy. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd phones, for example, feature wireless charging but support two different sets of standards, one called Qi and the other AirFuel. Apple recently joined the group backing Qi. But there are still at least five different groups working on wireless charging technology within Apple, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. As to 3-D sensors, there is already one hiding in the iPhone 7. The front camera features what is known as a time-of-flight sensor, which helps it autofocus and is used in numerous phones including the Blackberry, according to TechInsights, a firm that examines the chips inside tech devices. That sensor could be upgraded to a higher-resolution version that could handle 3-D mapping for facial recognition, said Jim Morrison, vice president at TechInsights.

Criminology Professor Leif GW Persson appeared on a Swedish television programme and backed up claims by under-investigation police officer Peter Springare that migrants are vastly overrepresented in criminal cases. Professor Persson appeared alongside the policeman on an episode of Weekly Crime for the Swedish broadcaster SVT and they discussed the recent comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump about the high rate of crime among migrants in Sweden. Persson totally agreed with Springare who was recently slammed for expressing the fact that most of the criminal suspects he sees in his work are from other countries. There is a strong prevalence of criminal immigrants. It is so obvious when it comes to crimes of this nature. Very serious violent crimes, Springare said. Persson agreed with him saying, Yes, I have made the same observation, and adding anyone with eyes to see can know who is doing these kinds of actions.
