La decisión de la Corte Suprema sobre la inmunidad presidencial y su repercusión global

Associated media - Linked media Los aliados de Estados Unidos están inquietos por las futuras elecciones del país. La reciente decisión de la Corte Suprema de extender significativamente el poder ejecutivo ha generado preocupación sobre la estabilidad y confiabilidad del poder estatal estadounidense. Keigo Komamura, profesor de derecho en la Universidad de Keio en Tokio, advirtió que la inmunidad penal del presidente estadounidense debilita la confianza de otros países aliados. «Este escenario en Estados Unidos no es tan diferente de lo que ocurre con Xi Jinping en China», afirmó. En varios países, como Japón, Corea del Sur, Australia y el Reino Unido, no existen protecciones tan amplias como las que la Corte Suprema estadounidense parece haber concedido. Rosalind Dixon, profesora de...

Estados Unidos logra un año histórico en la producción de energía

Associated media - Associated media Estados Unidos se ha consolidado como una auténtica potencia energética. Una combinación de diversas y poderosas fuentes ha permitido una generación de energía sin precedentes, superando exitosamente la demanda interna. En 2023, la producción energética del país aumentó un 4%, alcanzando aproximadamente 103 billones de unidades térmicas británicas (quads), un nuevo récord histórico. Mientras tanto, el consumo de energía disminuyó un 1%, situándose en 94 quads, lo que resultó en una diferencia de 9 quads, la mayor desde que se tienen registros en 1949, según la Administración de Información Energética de Estados Unidos (EIA). Para facilitar la comparación entre diferentes tipos de energía, la EIA utiliza las unidades térmicas británicas (BT...

Connected media - Linked media La tenista española Jessica Bouzas ha sorprendido al mundo del tenis al conseguir su primera victoria en un Grand Slam, eliminando a la número 6 del ranking WTA, Marketa Vondrousova.

Al igual que en 1994, la pista central estaba repleta de espectadores que fueron testigos de este inesperado desenlace. ...

Israeli Officials Believe I.C.C. Is Preparing Arrest Warrants Over Hamas War – Generic English

Associated media - Related media The Hamas-led raid last October led to the killing of roughly 1,200 people in Israel and the abductions of some 250 others, according to Israeli officials. The subsequent war in Gaza, including heavy Israeli bombardment, has killed more than 34,000 people, according to Gazan officials, caused widespread damage to housing and infrastructure, and brought the territory to the brink of famine. The Israeli assault in Gaza has led the International Court of Justice, a separate court in The Hague, to hear accusations of genocide against the Israeli state and has spurred a wave of protests on college campuses in the United States. If the I.C.C. does issue arrest warrants, they would come with deep stigmatization, placing those named in them in the same catego...

Many Ukrainian Prisoners of War Show Signs of Trauma and Sexual Violence – Generic English

Related media - Linked media Interrogators put him through a mock execution, firing a volley of gunfire beside him while he was blindfolded. They threatened him with rape, the serviceman said, making him choose what they should use — a mop handle or the leg of a chair. “Do you want to do it yourself or do you want us to help you?” they taunted him. He said that he was never actually penetrated, but that others were raped. “After that you cannot walk normally,” he said. “You suffer for weeks. Other guys had the same treatment.” “I think they had such an order to break us psychologically and physically so that we would not want anything else in life,” he said, adding that there were suicides in the Taganrog jail. “You could hear the screams all day,” the serviceman said. “Impossible sc...

TikTok Star Is Killed in Third Death of Social Media Influencer in Iraq – Generic English

Associated media - Associated media It took less than 46 seconds for the helmeted assassin to pull over his motorcycle, walk to the driver’s side of the S.U.V., yank open the door and fire his handgun four times, killing one of Iraq’s most prominent TikTok personalities, a 30-year-old woman whose name on social media was Um Fahad. The security camera footage of the killing in front of a Baghdad home on Friday evening is startlingly explicit but sheds little light on either the killer’s identity or the reason Um Fahad was targeted. The Iraqi Interior Ministry, which released the video, said it had formed a committee to investigate her death. The victim, whose real name was Ghufran Mahdi Sawadi, had become popular on social media sites, especially TikTok and Instagram, where her videos...

Deadly Russian Strikes Hit Civilian Center and Other Targets in Odesa – Generic English

Related media - Related media Bomb disposal experts and human rights groups have said those bomblets, which are mass-produced and inexpensively made, generally have a 20 percent failure rate, often leaving behind hazardous duds that can explode later if mishandled. Because they are small, those duds can lay unnoticed among debris or vegetation and weigh so little that children can pick them up without realizing their danger. If confirmed, their use in Monday’s attack could mark an escalation in Russia’s tactics that are intended to make life miserable for Ukrainian civilians, including bombing power plants to cut off electricity to major cities. Moscow has repeatedly targeted urban centers in recent weeks, sometimes using weapons usually reserved for combat zones. The area targeted i...

Monday Briefing – The New York Times

Linked media - Linked media Cease-fire talks in Cairo faltered Negotiations between Israel and Hamas stalled again, meaning more uncertainty for the families of Israeli hostages and no quick reprieve for Palestinians in Gaza. Mediators struggled to bridge the remaining gaps, and a Hamas delegation left the talks, officials said. The main dispute was over the duration of a cease-fire, with Hamas demanding a permanent one and Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, expressing openness to only a temporary halt in fighting. Hamas blamed the lack of progress on Netanyahu, who has vowed to stage a ground offensive in Rafah, where about a million Palestinians have been sheltering, with or without an agreement. Israel and the U.S. contend that Hamas has been holding up a deal. Netanyah...
