In Quake-Devastated
Ecuador, Loss Piles Up Amid
the Rubble
Apr 18, 2016 01:48AM
PORTOVIEJO, Ecuador (AP) — It was supposed to be a family
reunion to celebrate a young relative’s start of college. But the
gathering ended in tragedy when a collapsing building crushed
17-year-old Sayira Quinde, her mother, father and toddler brother
in their rusting Chevy Blazer.
A grief stricken aunt, Johana Estupinan, now is making the longest
journey of her life in a funeral hearse to the town of Esmeraldas,
where she will bury her loved ones and break the news of the loss
to her sister’s three now orphaned children.
As Ecuador digs out from its strongest earthquake in decades, tales
of devastating loss are everywhere amid the rubble. The
7.8-magnitude earthquake left a trail of ruin along Ecuador’s
normally placid Pacific Ocean coast, buckling highways, knocking
down an air traffic control tower and flattening homes and
buildings. At least 262 people died, including two Canadians, and
thousands are homeless.
Portoviejo, a provincial capital of nearly 300,000, was among the
hardest hit, with the town’s mayor reporting at least 100 deaths.
The Quinde family drove there from their home hours north up the
coast to drop off Sayira at Estupinan’s house a week before she
was to start classes at a public university on a scholarship to study
“She was my favorite niece,” Estupinan said, emotionally torn apart
after waiting at the city’s morgue for hours. “I thought I was
getting a daughter for the six years it was going to take her to
earn a degree.”
“I never thought my life would be destroyed in a minute,” she
Estupinan watched as her loved ones were loaded onto a
truck-sized hearse for the nighttime drive, the three older ones in
dark mahogany coffins and 8-month-old Matias in a casket painted
white. “It was supposed to be a short moment of family happiness
but it converted into a tragedy,” she said.
She hoped to bury her relatives in Esmeraldas on Monday, but
devastation there is also severe and she worried about whether
the hearse could make it along roads torn apart by the quake.
The Saturday night quake knocked out power in many parts along
the coast and residents who fled to higher ground fearing a
tsunami had no home to return to, or feared structures still
standing might collapse. With makeshift shelters in short supply,
many hunkered down to spend a second straight night outdoors
huddled among neighbors.

President Rafael Correa, who cut short a trip to the Vatican, flew
directly to the city of Manta from Rome to oversee relief efforts.
Even before touching Ecuadorean soil he signed a decree declaring
a national emergency. Speaking from Portoviejo late Sunday he
said the earthquake was the worst natural disaster to hit Ecuador
since a 1949 earthquake in the Andean city of Ambato, which took
over 5,000 lives.
“Our grief is very large, the tragedy is very large, but we’ll find the
way to move forward,” Correa said. “If our pain is immense, still
larger is the spirt of our people.”
As rescuers scrambled through the ruins near the epicenter, in
some cases digging with their hands to look for survivors,
humanitarian aid began trickling in. More than 3,000 packages of
food and nearly 8,000 sleeping kits were being delivered Sunday.
Correa’s ally, Venezuela, and neighboring Colombia, where the
quake was also felt, organized airlifts. Mexico and Chile sent teams
of rescuers.
“For god’s sake help me find my family,” pleaded Manuel Quijije, 27,
standing next to a wrecked building in Portoviejo. He said his older
brother, Junior, was trapped under a pile of twisted steel and
concrete with two relatives.
“We managed to see his arms and legs. They’re his, they’re buried,
but the police kicked us out because they say there’s a risk the rest
of the building will collapse,” Quijije said angrily as he looked on
the ruins cordoned off by police. “We’re not afraid. We’re
desperate. We want to pull out our family.”
Correa said the death toll was likely to rise because many people
remain unaccounted for, though he said there was evidence some
survivors remain alive under the rubble. More than 2,500 people
are injured.
On social media, Ecuadoreans celebrated a video of a baby girl
being pulled from beneath a collapsed home in Manta.
But fear was also spreading of another night of looting after 180
prisoners from a jail near Portoviejo escaped amid the tumult.
Authorities said some 20 inmates were recaptured and some others
returned voluntarily, sensing that life on the outside was just as
Seeking security from any unrest, about 400 residents of Portoviejo
gathered Sunday night on the tarmac of the city’s former airport,
where authorities handed out water, mattresses and food. The
airport was closed in 2011 and flights diverted to a larger facility in
nearby Manta after Correa kicked out a U.S. drug interdiction
operation stationed there.
Shantytowns and cheaply constructed brick and concrete homes
were reduced to rubble along the quake’s path. In the coastal town
of Chamanga, authorities estimated than 90 percent of homes had
damage, while in Guayaquil a shopping center’s roof fell in and a
collapsed highway overpass crushed a car, killing the driver.
The government said it would draw on $600 million in emergency
funding from multilateral banks to rebuild.
But for now the digging and hoping against the odds continues.
In downtown Portoviejo, a few blocks from where a four-story hotel
44 / 85
fell onto the Quinde family’s car, the six-story social security
building is a pile of debris. Downed power cables were strewn
across the street.
“The situation is heart-rending,” Jaime Ugalde, editor of El Diario,
the city’s most-important newspaper, said as he surveyed the
damage. “I’m going to return home and hug my wife and two kids.
We’re the lucky ones. We’re alive.”

South Korea Says the North Is
Preparing for Another
Nuclear Test
Apr 18, 2016 01:41AM
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s president said Monday
that there are signs that North Korea is preparing for a fifth
nuclear bomb test amid reports of increased activity at the
country’s main nuclear test site.
In a regular meeting with her top adviser, President Park Geun-hye
said that North Korea could carry out such a test to try to bolster
morale as the country deals with tough international sanctions
imposed after it conducted a fourth nuclear test and a long-range
rocket launch earlier this year.
Park didn’t elaborate on what signs pointed to another nuclear test,
but ordered the military to be ready to deal with any provocation by
Pyongyang, according to media pool reports on the first part of the
meeting posted on the website of her office.
Speculation about a fifth nuclear test increased last month when the
North’s state media cited leader Kim Jong Un as ordering a test of a
nuclear warhead and ballistic missiles capable of carrying
Kim’s order came amid rising animosity with South Korea and the
United States over their annual military drills that North Korea
describes as an invasion rehearsal. The drills are set to run until
next week.
Analysts say an atomic test could happen before North Korea holds
a landmark ruling Workers’ Party congress in early May so that
Kim can burnish his image as a powerful leader at home and
further cement his grip on power.
South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said Monday that South Korean
and U.S. authorities detected two to three times more vehicle and
personnel activities than normal this month at the North’s
northeast Punggye-ri nuclear test site — where all previous four
bomb tests took place.
A U.S. website that monitors sensitive sites in North Korea said
Friday that it saw further signs from satellite imagery that the
North was looking to produce more plutonium for nuclear weapons
at its main Nyongbyon nuclear complex, north of Pyongyang.
Earlier last week, the website 38 North said recent satellite imagery
of the Punggye-ri area showed little evidence that Pyongyang was
planning a nuclear test, though it added that the country may be
able to carry out a test on short notice.
Foreign experts said that a fifth test could put North Korean
scientists and engineers a step closer toward a goal of
manufacturing a warhead small enough to place on a long-range
missile that could reach the U.S. mainland.
South Korean defense officials say North Korea currently does not
have a reliable intercontinental ballistic missile, although it has
made strides in its weapons development programs in recent years.
Last Friday, a North Korean missile launch meant to
celebrate the birthday of Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s
founder and Kim Jong Un’s late grandfather, ended in
failure, according to U.S. officials. South Korean media
reports said the failed missile was a new, powerful
mid-range missile that could theoretically place U.S.
military bases in Asia within reach.
Calls for More Aid for Japan
Quake Zone as Toll Rises to
42 Dead
Apr 18, 2016 01:33AM
(MINAMIASO, Japan) — The U.S. military prepared to join relief
efforts Monday in disaster-stricken areas of southern Japan as
authorities struggled to feed and care for tens of thousands of
people who sought shelter after two powerful earthquakes that
killed at least 42 people.
Ten people remained missing, and rescuers were redoubling search
efforts on the southern island of Kyushu, where many areas were
cut off by landslides and road and bridge damage. Forecasts for
heavy rains, which would make land and collapsed buildings even
more unstable, added to the urgency of the searches.
Toyota Motor Corp. said it would shut down most of its vehicle
production in Japan over the course of this week because of parts
shortages stemming from the earthquakes. Nissan Motor Co. also
halted production at some facilities.
With 180,000 people seeking shelter, some evacuees said that food
distribution was a meager two rice balls for dinner.
“We are doing our best,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told lawmakers
when challenged by the opposition over the government’s handling
of the relief effort. “We are striving to improve living conditions for
the people who have sought refuge.”
“Today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, we will be working
toward a full recovery,” Abe said.
Gradually some roads were being reopened, and older men in
security guard uniforms were helping to direct traffic in the drizzly
U.S. Forces, Japan, said troops were preparing to provide aerial
support for Japan’s relief efforts. The U.S. has major Air Force,
Navy and Marine bases in Japan, and stations about 50,000 troops
in the country.
Many whose homes were not seriously damaged sought shelter as
the area was rocked by more than 500 aftershocks from two big
quakes that struck late Thursday night and in the early hours of
“Without water and electricity, we can’t do anything. Without the TV
on, we can’t even get information about disaster relief operations,”

said Megumi Kudo, 51, standing in a line for water outside a
community center in Aso city. “We can’t take a bath, not even a
Kudo came with his wife and a 12-year-old daughter, carrying
several empty gallon-size plastic containers to get water while his
80-year-old mother waited at home. “It’s better to be prepared than
sorry, as we learned the hard way,” he said.
His house survived, despite major roof damage, but like many, the
family was sleeping in their cars.
A few blocks away, 75-year-old Tokio Miyamoto said he was wary of
sleeping alone in his house, so he was lugging his futon bedding
every evening to an evacuation center. “It’s a hassle, but it’s too
scary to be alone,” he said.
Miyamoto said the evacuation center was short of food, with only a
couple of rice balls per meal for each person.
Japanese media said most of those missing were in Minamiaso, a
mountain village southwest of 1,592-meter (5,223-foot) Mount Aso,
the largest active volcano in Japan. There, dozens of troops, police
and other rescue workers were shoveling debris and searching
through places where they may have been buried.
A few stretchers were on hand in case anyone was found alive.
Earthquakes on successive nights struck Kumamoto city and the
surrounding region late last week. Nine people died in the first
earthquake, and 33 in the second. Kumamoto, a city of 740,000, is
on Kyushu island.
About 80,000 homes in Kumamoto prefecture still didn’t have
electricity Sunday, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
said. Japanese media reported earlier that an estimated 400,000
households were without running water.
The areas of Kyushu affected by the quake include technology hubs
and other manufacturing, and the disruptions to transport and
logistics were expected to ripple through the economy.
Toyota’s shutdown began Monday at a factory in Kyushu and was to
progress to other plants in Japan through Friday. The company said
resumption of operations would depend on the availability of parts.
Other companies, including Sony, have
announced stoppages of some of their factories
in Kyushu.
Burma’s Aung San Suu Kyi
Vows to Amend Junta-Era
Apr 18, 2016 01:12AM
(YANGON, Burma) — Burma’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi
vowed Monday to push for constitutional amendments to build a
true democracy in the Southeast Asian country as it emerges from
decades of military control.
Suu Kyi made the comments in a nationally televised address to
mark the start of the Buddhist new year, highlighting her hopes for
the future and also the difficult tasks ahead for her new
“Our policies and principles are to ensure national reconciliation,
internal peace, the rule of law, amendments to the constitution and
keeping the democratic system dynamic,” she said.
“The constitution needs to be one that will give birth to a genuine
democratic union,” she said. “We need constitutional
Suu Kyi’s power to change the constitution remains hamstrung by
the military, which still retains considerable power in government
and parliament. But she has repeatedly said the current
constitution — written during the era of military rule — must be
revised so the country can move forward.
The constitution reserves key ministerial posts in the Cabinet for the
military, which heads the Home Ministry, the Defense Ministry and
the Border Affairs Ministry.
It also allots 25 percent of the seats in parliament for military
officers, ensuring that no government can amend the constitution
without the army’s approval. Suu Kyi has been working to build
alliances with the military but has reportedly angered the military
with her government’s initial acts since taking power two weeks
Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy, won a
landslide victory in November elections, ushering in the country’s
first civilian government after 54 years of direct and indirect
military rule.
Suu Kyi is the country’s most popular political figure but was unable
to become president because of a clause in the constitution that
bars anyone with a foreign spouse or child from holding the job.
Her two sons are British, as was her late husband.
To get around that clause, Suu Kyi selected her longtime confidant,
Htin Kyaw, to become president. One of his government’s first acts
after taking power at the end of March was to give Suu Kyi a newly
created position called “state counsellor” which is akin to that of
prime minister.
Htin Kyaw’s government has made it a priority to release political
prisoners detained during military rule. Prior to the New Year, his
administration freed more than 100 political detainees and on
Sunday granted amnesty to another 83.
“We will continue to try to release political
prisoners, political activists, and students facing
trials related to politics,” he said in televised
comments Sunday to mark the new year.
Amazon Prime Is Offering
Monthly Subscriptions For
the First Time
Apr 17, 2016 11:03PM
Online retail giant Amazon began offering monthly subscriptions for
its web streaming service on Sunday, as it seeks to compete
directly with online video sites like Netflix and Hulu.
Amazon Prime, the company’s bundle of offerings that also includes
a music library and unlimited photo storage, will cost $10.99 a
month, CNN Money reports. The bundle was previously only
available for a $99 annual fee.
In an apparent direct response to Netflix’s dominance of the online
television space, the company will also offer separate monthly
subscriptions for Prime Video at $8.99 per month. Netflix,
meanwhile, will reportedly increase its monthly fee from $7.99 to
$9.99 from May onwards.
Although the annual subscription will still work out to be cheaper,
Amazon says it wants to offer customers the option of avoiding a
yearlong commitment.

Amber Heard Pleads Guilty on

A British Airways Airbus Got
Hit By a Suspected Drone
While Landing at Heathrow
Apr 17, 2016 10:08PM
A British Airways flight collided with an object believed to be a
drone Sunday as it prepared to land at London’s Heathrow
Airport — commonly reckoned the world’s busiest. It is the
first ever reported collision between an airliner and a drone,
following a series of near-misses in recent months.
Steve Landells, of the British Airline Pilots Association, said such an
incident was “only a matter of time,” the BBC reports.
The British Airway Airbus A320 was en route from Geneva and
preparing to land in London when the front of the plane struck an
unmanned object. The flight landed safely at Heathrow; no arrests
were reported.
U.K. regulators said that anyone flying drones close to airports
could expect serious penalties.

Heard and her husband, Hollywood star Johnny Depp, attended the

the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water

The saga, which became known as the “war on terrier,”
began in May 2015 when Heard brought the two dogs into
Australia, where Depp was shooting the latest Pirates of the

presence, who flew in with Heard on a private jet, when a local dog
groomer in Queensland posted a picture of them on social media.
Dogs entering Australia, according to bio-security laws, must spend

Apr 17, 2016 09:23PM
BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — Brazil’s lower house of Congress voted late
Sunday to impeach President Dilma Rousseff, delivering a major
blow to a long-embattled leader who repeatedly argued that the
push against her was a “coup.”
Rousseff is accused of using accounting tricks in managing the
federal budget to maintain spending and shore up support. She has
said previous presidents used similar maneuvers and stressed that
she has not been charged with any crimes or implicated in any
corruption scandals.
However, she failed to secure the support she needed, and more
than the necessary two-thirds of lawmakers in the Chamber of
Deputies voted to oust her.
“What an honor destiny has reserved for me!” shouted Bruno
Araujo, a member of Socialist Democratic Party, upon making the
decisive “yes” vote. Both cheers and boos erupted as Araujo waved
his arm in the air.
With at least 342 of 513 deputies voting in favor, the measure
passed. Several lawmakers had yet to vote, so the final tally could
be an even wider victory for the opposition.
The measure now goes to the Senate. If by a simple majority the
Senate votes to take it up and put the president on trial, Rousseff
will be temporarily suspended.
In that case, Vice President Michel Temer would take on the
presidential duties and the Senate would have 180 days to conduct
a trial against Rousseff. Senate leader Renan Calheiros has
suggested his body would consider the measure within a month,
but no date has been set.
47 / 85
Rousseff has options. She could appeal to the Supreme Federal
Tribunal, Brazil’s highest court, on the grounds that the
accusations are faulty. She has hinted she might do so.
She could also heavily lobby senators and at the same time use the
union muscle of her Worker’s Party to bring thousands to the
streets to pressure the Congress.
“This is just beginning,” said Jose Guimaraes, who is a member of
the Worker’s Party. “It’s going to be a slow and gradual war that
we’ll undertake.”
The lower chamber’s decision was the culmination of months of
fighting that brought to the surface deep polarization that goes to
the heart of daily life Brazil. Impeachment proponents said
Rousseff’s budget moves hurt Latin America’s largest economy by
hiding deficits and allowing overspending that contributed to its
worst recession since the 1930s.
They argued the only way to move beyond the paralysis is to remove
Rousseff, the country’s first female president, whose popularity
ratings have dropped below 10 percent in recent months.
Government supporters said something much more nefarious was at
play: Elites angry about the hold on power of the Worker’s Party
the last 13 years saw an opportunity to snatch it back. They
repeatedly pointed out, as did Rousseff herself, that some of the
biggest proponents of impeachment are facing serious allegations
of corruption.
Watchdog groups and political analysts often cite a jaw-dropping
tally: About 60 percent of the 594 members of Congress are facing
corruption and other charges.
The deepening crisis comes as Brazil grapples with problems on
multiple fronts. The economy is contracting, inflation is around 10
percent and an outbreak of the Zika virus, which can cause
devastating birth defects, has ravaged parts of northeastern states.
Rio de Janeiro is gearing up to host the Olympics in August, but
sharp budget cuts have fueled worries about whether the country
will be ready.
Just below the surface throughout the debates in the Chamber of
Deputies was the “Car Wash” investigation, a probe into a kickback
scheme so vast that dozens of top politicians and businessmen have
already been jailed.
While Rousseff herself has not been implicated, the kickbacks at
state oil company Petrobras allegedly happened on her watch and
that of former President Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva. While many
lawmakers and regular citizens blame her for letting the graft
happen, many sitting lawmakers are accused in the scandal.
Simone Morgado, a member of the centrist Brazilian Democratic
Movement, said impeachment proponents were trying to derail a
democratically elected president.
“Given that Dilma didn’t commit any crime, like so many others in
this chamber, which has no shame, I’m voting ‘no!’,” she said
during the voting, which saw the legislators cast their ballots one
by one.
Temer, a 75-year-old with the Brazilian Democratic Movement, a
party without any concrete ideology that has a reputation for
backroom wheeling and dealing, has tried to cast himself as a
statesman above the fray and a unifying force that can heal a
scarred nation. Rousseff has called him one of the ring-leaders
trying to bring her down.
Temer has been linked to the Petrobras scandal. Also, because he
signed off on some of the questioned accounting maneuvers, he
could later potentially face impeachment proceedings.
The second in line to replace Rousseff is Eduardo Cunha, the
Chamber of Deputies speaker and long-time Rousseff enemy. He is
facing money laundering and other charges for allegedly accepting
some $5 million in kickbacks in connection with the Petrobras
scheme and could also be stripped of office over allegations he lied
when he told a congressional committee he didn’t hold any foreign
bank accounts. Documents later emerged linking him and his family
to Swiss bank accounts.
Under the special legal status afforded to Brazilian legislators and
other top politicians, they must be tried by the Supreme Court,
largely shielding them from prosecutions.
Political analysts say another big factor in the impeachment push
was Rousseff’s inability to wheel and deal. The hand-picked
successor of Silva, a once wildly popular leader, Rousseff had never
held elective office before the presidency and was frequently
out-maneuvered by Cunha and other opponents.
Critics said she comes off as stand-offish and arrogant, and her
unwillingness to engage in back-slapping and wooing of opposition
leaders cost her as the economy started to decline and she was
unable to gather support for reforms.
“Impeachment is the way that the political system found to get rid of
an incompetent leader,” said Luciano Dias, a political consultant
based in Brasilia.
Associated Press writer Jenny Barchfield reported this
story in Brasilia and AP writer Mauricio Savarese
reported from Rio de Janeiro.
HBO’s Vinyl Was a Major
Disappointment: What Went
Apr 17, 2016 09:01PM
On Sunday night, HBO will launch the sixth season of Game of
Thrones, its most-watched show ever. Thrones boasts a devoted
army of fans who’ve spent the past year speculating about the
fate of Jon Snow, and enough critical credibility to take the Best
Drama Emmy last year — HBO’s first winning show in that
category since The Sopranos.
The latest GoT premiere can’t come soon enough for a
network with a great deal of strengths that lately don’t
include its drama slate. The diminishing returns provided by Vinyl
, a period show about the New York recording industry, have
been this year’s biggest TV plot twist, and show just how far
HBO has to go to reclaim the TV-drama crown from an
increasingly robust set of competitors. After a
flawed-but-promising launch, how did Vinyl go so wrong, and could
it ever rock?
To be clear, I was no particular fan of the two-hour pilot, directed by
Martin Scorsese; it felt overstuffed both with cliché and incident (a
murder plotline and a backstory about a grave injustice along racial
lines that felt out-of-place on a drama notionally about a record
company). Bobby Cannavale was working perhaps too hard to sell a
character drawn from a word-cloud about male TV protagonists of
the past decade. His Richie Finestra — an inattentive husband who
abuses substances as a way to briefly escape the painful level of
48 / 85
passion he brings to his job — was, from the start, more an idea of
manhood than a man. If a show’s going to be ambitious about the
volume of drama it expects us to follow, it can’t skimp on the
characters who are supposed to make us actually care.
But shows often learn how to be about what they’re about as
they progress. And Vinyl’s pedigree — stars Cannavale,
Ray Romano, and Olivia Wilde; producers Scorsese, Mick
Jagger, and Boardwalk Empire’s Terence Winter — seemed to
imply that it would find its footing. Instead, Vinyl leaned yet more
heavily as it wore on what didn’t work.
The show relied too strongly, for instance, on empty-calorie
cameos from actors dutifully but not transcendentally playing
rock gods, either interacting with fictional characters or
performing their hits. Every Vinyl viewer will have their own least
favorite; mine has to be John Lennon and Yoko Ono bumping into
Wilde’s Edie Sedgwick-inspired character Devon at Max’s Kansas
City. There’s got to be a more fitting homage to one of music’s
greatest than chucking a look-alike on the screen and presuming
familiarity will be enough to impress.
But worse still was the show’s reliance on tropes around addiction
that, if they ever really worked on TV, have grown tired. Don
Draper, TV’s great recent addict, was charming enough for the
viewer to entertain the notion that he had some core of humanity;
Richie Finestra is just a loud jerk. Devon leaving him to move to the
Chelsea Hotel felt both like a third-season-finale development
uncorked early out of a dearth of ideas and like the only choice that
made sense. “I got clean,” Richie tells her deep into the season,
begging forgiveness. “For how long—a day?” she replies. His
addiction is so endlessly recursive, pushing him again and again
into the depths without modulation or novelty and pushing other
great actors to the side, that her frustration is ours. By the time, in
the season finale, that Richie declares that he’s running an
anarchic company now and encourages his employees to
spray-paint the walls, his coping mechanisms feel old-hat. How long
are we meant to run from reality with him?
HBO is apparently aware Vinyl isn’t working; they brought an end
to Winter’s work running the show as it goes into its second
season, calling it “an appropriate time to make a change in the
creative direction of the show.” Creative turnarounds are within
the realm of possibility at HBO; just last year, The Leftovers
rebounded from a too-challenging, needlessly baroque first
season with a second set of episodes that were among the
year’s very best. But The Leftovers was building on a
universe that had real yet unfulfilled promise. There’s little
in Vinyl’s world of uninteresting clichés that feels like it’s a tweak
away from greatness.
Worse still for the premium-cable service, The Leftovers
failed to draw in new fans; its next season will be its last.
While HBO, which does not sell ads on its air, is
understandably more concerned with subscriber numbers
than with Nielsen figures. Vinyl’s low viewership, never breaking a
million viewers an episode, can hardly be something to cheer.
HBO is, to be clear, a very successful enterprise, with the
reigning Emmy champions in drama (Thrones) and comedy (Veep
), a movie catalog, Sesame Street, and talent from Jon
Stewart to Bill Simmons to Beyoncé on their team. But
their inability to develop a consistent drama hit since the Thrones
launch in 2011 feels perhaps tied to that safety. Cable
TV’s best new dramas since 2011 — Showtime’s Homeland,
FX’s Fargo and The People v. O.J. Simpson, and, though it’s
early yet, USA’s Mr. Robot would be on that list — feel like the
results of networks trying to take meaningful risks with their
brands. Vinyl is a show using familiar language to tell a story about
unimpeachable rock gods. It’s all “quality” and no delight. It’s a
blue-chip stock, and exactly the kind of risk-free endeavor that the
best of TV is quickly moving past.

Door technische problemen bij
luchtverkeersleider Belgocontrol is ons land het
afgelopen jaar drie keer aan een vliegramp
ontsnapt. Dat schrijft Het Laatste Nieuws
maandag. In twee gevallen werd zelfs
overgegaan tot een ‘clear the sky’, een
noodprocedure waarbij alle vliegtuigen het
Belgische luchtruim moeten verlaten.
Bijna één op de vijf schoolgaande jongeren tussen
13 en 18 jaar in Vlaanderen en Brussel is te dik.
Opvallend: overgewicht en obesitas komen
beduidend meer voor in het beroepsonderwijs.
Problematisch ondergewicht is dan weer een
typisch probleem voor het ASO.

Nadat de voorzitter van de Arbeiderspartij de
nederlaag van de regering al had toegegeven, heeft
de Braziliaanse Kamer van
Volksvertegenwoordigders zondag nu ook officieel
met een tweederdemeerderheid voor de afzetting van
president Dilma Rousseff gestemd. Dat betekent dat
de mogelijke afzetting van Rousseff nu in de Senaat
gestemd zal worden. Die zal beslissen of Rousseff
voor 180 dagen geschorst zal worden.

Miles van Antwerpen
Apr 18, 2016 12:08AM
Hij is dan wel afgezwaaid als topcrosser, Sven Nys blijft
een atleet. Dat bewees hij zondag op de 10 Miles in
Antwerpen. Nys deed over de afstand van 16 km iets
meer dan 1 uur 2 minuten, en zit daarmee vooraan in het
klassement. Hij stelde nog nooit zo ’n afstand te hebben
gelopen, en vreest het wel vandaag in de benen te
voelen. Nys’ ex-teamgenoot Sven Vanthourenhout was
nog iets sneller.

Nu IS-terroristen nucleaire toplui bespioneren en kernreactoren
