Brie Bella shared cute throwbacks of herself and husband Bryan Danielson for their 7th anniversary
Thirteen people who describe themselves as "victims of forced confessions broadcast on Chinese television" are urging European satellite operator Eutelsat to reconsider carrying Chinese channels CGTN and CCTV4. The letter published by human rights watchdog Safeguard Defenders details a list of violations that the signatories say China is guilty of using to extort confessions from them and "refuse the right to a fair trial"."We are asking you... to determine whether television providers in democratic societies ought to continue to be morally complicit in the broadcast of information that is intentionally twisted and obtained through torture," the group said. "We are only a dozen victims able to speak out.... Many other victims are in prison. A few have been executed."The victims have no way of demanding reparations. The only way to stop this is for television regulators to investigate and take measures," the group added. The letter notes Australian public broadcaster SBS stopped using content from Chinese state-run television in March pending a review of human rights concerns.The UK also fined CGTN for partiality and violation of privacy and removed it from the airwaves, a ban that pushed the channel to set up shop in France. French audiovisual regulator CSA determined in March that CGTN met the technical criteria necessary for broadcasting but just this week Safeguard Defenders submitted two complaints against the channel. One cited an allegedly coerced interview with a Uyghur child and the other was a defamation complaint from German researcher Adrian Zenz, whose reports on the treatment of Uighurs in China's western Xinjiang region have drawn rebukes from Beijing.The signatories are from China and other countries, including Chinese human rights lawyers Bao Longjun and Jiang Tianyong who have been targeted by authorities in their country. Simon Cheng, a former British consulate staffer in Hong Kong, who was granted asylum in the UK after allegedly being tortured by Chinese secret police also signed the letter. Also giving support is Swedish activist and Safeguard Defenders co-founder Peter Dahlin, who spent three weeks in jail in 2016 before being expelled from the country as a national security threat.Angela Gui, daughter of Gui Minhai who published in Hong Kong until he was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2020, signed on behalf of her father.(AFP)

(Bloomberg) -- Ballot counting has started in Ecuador’s knife-edge presidential election that will determine whether the country remains a U.S. ally with an IMF program, or revives its friendship with Venezuela and Cuba.The two contenders in the runoff vote offer starkly different policies to confront the economic crisis. Two exit polls published by local media showed a close margin.Socialist economist Andres Arauz, 36, has pledged to pay a million poor families $1,000 each, with money taken out of the central bank’s reserves. Career banker Guillermo Lasso, 65, says he’ll attract foreign investors and create jobs via policies that help the private sector.Arauz is a protege of former President Rafael Correa, who shut the U.S. military’s base in the country and forged an alliance with then-Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.Polls closed at 5 p.m. local time, and the first partial results are expected two hours later.Before any official results had been published, Lasso supporters in the coastal city of Guayaquil appeared confident of victory, and jumped and cheered. The atmosphere at Arauz’s campaign headquarters in Quito was more subdued.The country of 17 million people has been struggling since oil prices crashed in 2014, and was already in recession when the pandemic hit. Last year the economy contracted 7.8%, its worst performance since at least the 1970s.Read More: Why Ecuador’s Runoff Vote Matters for the Bond Market: QuickTakeIn the first-round vote in February, Arauz came first with 32.7%, while Lasso got 19.7%. Recent polls showed Lasso having closed that gap, after receiving the endorsement of the majority of the candidates who were eliminated in the first round.Whoever wins and takes office in May will face a fragmented, potentially hostile legislature and voters who are hostile to austerity measures.Central bank reform is a key part of Ecuador’s $6.5 billion funding agreement with the International Monetary Fund. Arauz’s pledge to distribute central bank reserves to families would probably mean the end of that deal, said Siobhan Morden, a managing director for Amherst Pierpont. Of the total, $2.5 billion remains to be disbursed.Ecuador’s recently restructured dollar bonds have rallied in recent weeks, as investors bet that Lasso’s chances of victory were improving.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Back in 2011-12, Manchester United held an eight-point advantage over second-placed Manchester City with six games to go, but with Sergio Aguero's 94th-minute intervention in the final game of the season, City completed a dramatic title turnaround. City's shock 2-1 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday, coupled with Manchester United's 3-1 success at Tottenham Hotspur, means that should United win their game in hand, it will be roles reversed from 2011-12, but with an eight point gap, six to play. Hopes of an equally dramatic turnaround are slim, however.

Suárez followed with the groundball single, which was perfectly placed between Arizona's shortstop and second baseman.
A majority of residents of European cities support a Europe-wide phaseout of combustion engine car sales from 2030 to reduce planet-warming emissions, a YouGov poll conducted on behalf of environmental campaigners said on Monday. Of 10,050 survey respondents, 63% said they supported the idea that after 2030, only emission-free cars should be sold in Europe. The online opinion poll surveyed people last month in 15 cities including London, Warsaw and Budapest, with an average of 29% opposing the idea of ending petrol and diesel car sales, while 8% said they did not know.
Chilean authorities on Sunday backed the country's widespread use of the COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Chinese firm Sinovac after China's top disease official appeared to make conflicting statements about its efficacy. Gao Fu, the director of the Chinese Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told a conference in the Chinese city of Chengdu on Saturday that the country was considering mixing COVID-19 vaccines since currently available vaccines "don't have very high rates of protection." Available data shows Chinese vaccines lag behind others including Pfizer and Moderna in terms of efficacy, but require less stringent temperature controls during storage.
A senior Apple Inc executive has agreed to testify before the U.S. Senate on competition issues related to mobile app stores, days after panel leaders criticized the company for refusing to appear. The company said in a letter sent to senators, seen by Reuters, that Chief Compliance Officer Kyle Andeer will be available to testify at an April 21 hearing held by part of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Zona arancione da oggi per quasi tutta Italia e regole più soft per scuola, spostamenti e categorie di negozi. Nella fascia rientrano in particolare Lombardia, Emilia Romagna e Piemonte. Zona rossa solo per Campania, Puglia, Valle d'Aosta e Sardegna, un mese fa zona bianca e ora alle prese con i divieti più rigidi per arginare la diffusione del coronavirus. Entrano in vigore le ordinanze varate dal ministro Roberto Speranza dopo i dati dell'ultimo monitoraggio. Per gran parte del paese -in assenza di zona gialla- ecco le misure più soft: sempre coprifuoco dalle 22 alle 5, ma scuola aperta anche a seconda terza media. Gli studenti delle superiori rientrano in presenza almeno al 50%. SPOSTAMENTI - Il quadro può cambiare a livello locale per provvedimenti più restrittivi ad hoc. In generale in ogni caso nella zona arancione è consentito uno spostamento giornaliero verso una sola abitazione privata abitata in ambito comunale, in non più di due persone (oltre a under 14 e persone disabili o non autosufficienti). BAR - Sono sospese le attività di servizi di ristorazione all'interno dei locali (tra cui pub, bar, ristoranti, gelaterie e pasticcerie). Fino alle 22 è consentita la ristorazione con asporto, con divieto di consumazione sul posto o nelle adiacenze. Nessuna restrizione per la ristorazione con consegna a domicilio. Per i soggetti che svolgono come attività prevalente una di quelle identificate dai codici ATECO 56.3 (bar e altri esercizi simili senza cucina) l'asporto è consentito fino alle 18. PARRUCCHIERI E ESTETISTI - Esercizi commerciali tutti aperti in zona arancione con i consueti orari, compresi i servizi alla persona (parrucchieri, estetisti ecc.). Restano invece chiusi in zona rossa. Nei giorni festivi e prefestivi, nei centri commerciali restano aperti farmacie, parafarmacie, presidi sanitari, lavanderie e tintorie, punti vendita di generi alimentari, di prodotti agricoli e florovivaistici, tabacchi, edicole e librerie. SPORT - Restano chiuse fino al 30 aprile palestre e piscine. In zona arancione è consentito svolgere attività sportiva o attività motoria all'aperto, anche presso aree attrezzate e parchi pubblici, purché comunque nel rispetto della distanza di sicurezza interpersonale di almeno 2 metri per l'attività sportiva, salvo che sia necessaria la presenza di un accompagnatore per i minori o per le persone non completamente autosufficienti. E' consentito recarsi presso centri e circoli sportivi, pubblici e privati, del proprio comune o, in assenza di tali strutture, in comuni limitrofi, per svolgere esclusivamente all'aperto attività sportiva di base. E' interdetto l'uso di spogliatoi interni nei circoli. In zona rossa sono sospese l'attività sportiva di base e l'attività motoria in genere presso centri e circoli sportivi, pubblici e privati, sia all’aperto che al chiuso. Vietato lo svolgimento degli sport di contatto. Da oggi in aula 6,5 milioni di studenti, il 77% degli 8,5 milioni di iscritti negli istituti statali e paritari, e cioè quasi otto su dieci. Quasi un milione in più rispetto alla settimana appena trascorsa, fa notare Tuttoscuola: ben 400mila solo in Lombardia. L’unica regione in controtendenza la Sardegna, da oggi in zona rossa, dove 63mila alunni di seconda e terza media e delle superiori lasceranno le aule e si collegheranno da casa. In tutto saranno quasi 2 milioni quelli ancora a casa in Dad. "Abbiamo deciso di riaprire la scuola, siamo consapevoli che c'è un elemento di rischio in questa scelta. Ma abbiamo deciso di investire il nostro tesoretto sull'architrave del nostro paese". Roberto Speranza, ministro della Salute, a Che tempo che fa. "Il governo ha fatto una scelta che io difendo con forza e che rivendichiamo nella nostra collegialità. Grazie alle misure adottate tra marzo e aprile abbiamo accumulato un piccolissimo tesoretto e abbiamo scelto di investirlo sulla scuola, un pilastro della società italiana che ha pagato un prezzo altissimo in questi mesi. Il governo vuole provare ad avere due mesi di scuola in presenza per consentire ai nostri figli di assaporare il piacere di frequentare le lezioni in presenza. Tutti i dati che abbiamo ci dicono che non ci sono problemi nelle aule, ma sono legati ai movimenti. Siamo consapevoli che c'è un elemento di rischio in questa scelta, ma abbiamo deciso di mettere questo tesoretto sulla scuola, architrave del nostro paese", dice Speranza.
