"The recalled Note 7s pose a safety risk to our customers and those around them." Verizon customers who return a Note 7 device to the company continue to be eligible for a 100 bill credit and no upgrade fee as an incentive to choose a new smartphone. Samsung has not officially announced the results of an internal investigation it conducted on the Galaxy Note 7, but company sources yesterday told Reuters that Samsung has concluded the battery was the reason behind the fires. Samsung was able to replicate the fires during its investigation, though the cause was not able to be explained by hardware design or software. Samsung's official results will be shared on January 23, and the company is also expected to share details on measures it will take to prevent similar battery issues in the future.

Russia stopped allowing adoptions by Americans in 2013 in response to U.S. sanctions placed on the country following the death in prison of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in 2009. Safety concerns cited Moscow said it banned adoptions in the U.S. due to safety concerns after Russian media outlets reported abuse of adopted Russian children by U.S. families. The judges, however, noted in their ruling that Russia and the U.S. signed an agreement in 2012 that guarantees against the mistreatment of adopted children. Many of the 27 children blocked from being adopted by Americans since the law took effect have serious medical conditions that could be better treated in the U.S.

Her son, Daniel, but having a black president Her son Daniel thought having a black president would mean a more inclusive America. But he fears Donald Trump's brand of populism is now encouraging division. I do feel my safety might be, you know, in danger. Really? You feel more vulnerable now? I do, I do. In certain situations I do. Post-Trump? Post-Trump, yes. Because it is something that you can see from the energy that Trump built and the way that people express themselves who support Trump.

“The latest Hyundai i30 comes laden with safety equipment, has an attractive engine range and makes a fine long-distance cruiser; these strengths make it easy to overlook the car’s slight deficienciesTake a look at the most popular cars bought in the UK last year and you’ll find 80% of them are hatchbacks – and half of those are family hatchbacks like the Hyundai i30. While many of the i30’s key rivalsnamely the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra and Audi A3feature on this list, the i30 is notable in its absence, so is this latest model good enough to warrant a place in 2017’s top 10? On balance, yes. Hyundai has taken enough steps when designing the i30 to ensure it’s an attractive pick for UK buyers. There are one or two niggles to be aware of, but these are less significant than the substantial advantages the car has over some competitors.

It has been a long time since you said that, thank you.

Others argue though that Europe's largest street festival is still much safer than other big events. Caroline Davies has more. Carnival.
