Loretta Lynn returns after stroke to honor Alan Jackson at Country Music Hall of Fame induction
 
04:50
(23 Oct 2017) LORETTA LYNN RETURNS AFTER STROKE TO HONOR ALAN JACKSON AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTION Country icon Loretta Lynn returned to the Country Music Hall of Fame for the first time since she suffered a stroke in May, to formally induct Alan Jackson, Sunday (22 OCT. 2017). Jackson joined late guitarist and singer Jerry Reed and songwriter Don Schlitz to become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. Lynn, who cancelled her tour dates this year to recover, said Jackson was the only person that could make her leave her house. She recalled meeting Jackson when he was a nervous young artist decades ago and knowing then that he would "be one of the greatest singers in country music." "He hadn't let me down," said Lynn, who is also a member of the Hall of Fame. The 59-year-old Jackson is one of country music's most successful solo artists, having sold nearly 45 million albums in the United States and had 26 singles reach the top of the Billboard country charts. Many of his hits became instant classics, from the bar-room staple "Chattahoochee" to the somber "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" written after Sept. 11, 2001. Reed, who died at age 71 in 2008, was first known as an in demand studio musician with a unique finger picking style on the guitar. He played for and wrote songs for stars like Elvis Presley and Porter Wagoner. In later years, he started appearing in TV and movies, most notably playing Burt Reynolds' sidekick in "Smokey and the Bandit." He also sang many of the songs on the soundtrack, including "East Bound and Down." His daughters, Seidina Hubbard and Lottie Zavala, accepted the honor on his behalf. Schlitz, 65, from Durham, North Carolina, had his first songwriting hit in 1978 when Kenny Rogers recorded his song "The Gambler," which became Rogers' signature song throughout his career. Songs he helped write include "On the Other Hand" and "Forever and Ever, Amen," both sung by Randy Travis. Aloe Blacc and Vince Gill sang a duet version of "The Gambler" at the ceremony, while singers Charlie Worsham and Mary Chapin Carpenter also performed his songs in his honor.

Pakistan: Britain's Princess Diana Visits - 1996
 
02:47
Britain's Princess Diana has walked into controversy in Pakistan with a visit to a cancer hospital run by sporting hero Imran Khan. Although she says she is just helping with fund-raising, critics say Khan is using the visit to boost his political career. During her visit Diana met young patients being treated at the hospital with Khan's British-born wife Jemima and Lady Annabel Goldsmith, his mother-in-law. Dressed in a light-blue traditional Pakistani shalwar kameez - trousers and long shirt - the Princess of Wales made what was supposed to be a private visit to Imran Khan's cancer hospital. A frequent visitor to British hospitals - Diana showed a sure touch when she met patients and staff. The woman who wants to be known as the "Queen of Hearts" came on a goodwill mission to the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital in the city of Lahore. The Princess toured the hospital with Imran, her host in Pakistan, his English wife Jemima and Lady Annabel Goldsmith, Imran's mother-in-law. She sat at the bedsides of several young patients - held their hands and talked to doctors about their treatment. However, some people were shocked by the Princess's forward style in a country where some people think it rude for a man to touch a female stranger. The hospital was founded by Imran Khan to care for patients with cancer. He says his intentions are purely charitable, but the government believes he is using the hospital to increase his popularity - before he becomes a politician. State-run Pakistani TV cut Imran out of pictures of the visit. After lunch, Diana attended a children's party on the wards. She was welcomed by women throwing handfuls of flower petals into a huge tent full of patients and staff. Together with Jemima Khan, the Princess watched a display of singing and dancing by young patients which both seemed to enjoy. The two were presented with garlands by well-wishers. The Princess was Thursday night - a guest-of-honour at a fund-raising dinner. She flies back to Britain on Friday.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
 
02:49
T/I: 10:24:08 Anything made out of paper is generally thought to be structurally weak, but with skilful folding, paper can gain unexpected strength. The Japanese art of origami, or paper folding, has long been admired for its ingenuity, but this traditional pastime is now providing the basis for the foundation of a new technology. Two years ago, Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki, a teacher in mechanical engineering at Saitama University, and his students began conducting research into paper structures. They discovered that long triangular cylinders threaded horizontally through a collection of hexagons produced a strong structure that resisted twisting -- strong enough to hold the weight of a person. A tricycle made entirely out of recycled paper, using joints made from paper cups, was among the objects built to demonstrate the strength of their chosen material. With a fire and water resistant coating, paper could be used in unique ways giving it new options for the years ahead. SHOWS: JAPAN RECENT CU flimsy pieces of paper; Paper being folded into strong structure; Strong paper taking weight of apple; Exterior of Saitama University; Interior shot of researchers in meeting; SOT Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki: "Compared to metals, paper is extremely light-weight and easy to recycle. These advantages create various possibilities for the use of strong paper structures."

Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++
 
05:03
(11 May 2012) LEADIN Never-before-seen belongings of the Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, are on display in Los Angeles. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the movie star's death at the age of 36. STORYLINE: One of the world's most iconic actresses, Marilyn Monroe, is the star of a million dollar exhibition of some of her most personal belongings. It's taking place here in Hollywood, 50 years after her premature death. Over 50,000 fans from all over the world are expected to arrive to commemorate the anniversary. This exhibit is housed inside an old bank vault, and the contents inside are valuable - maybe priceless because of their association with Monroe. The Marilyn Bank Vault Collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not is Hollywood's ultimate homage to Marilyn, remembering an era and commemorating the queen of the town. Among the many Marilyn items are a hand knitted cardigan, currently valued at USD $170,000. She wore this on her last photo shoot. These are all personal items belonging to the owner of the Ripley's company. Andrea Silverman, general manager of Ripley's Believe It Or Not says: "We have her famous sweater which was actually the last photograph that she did before her death. You're gong to see her makeup case. It took her over three hours to do her makeup. You guys have to come see all the cool stuff that we have. We have her shoes. We have her nightgown when she was married to Joe DiMaggio for her honeymoon" Personal items include a dresser top of Marilyn's cosmetics and makeup case. She was rumoured to take three hours to put on her makeup on every morning. An old Revlon nail polish bottle sits next to an Erno Laszlo face cream, lavender smelling salts, and an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow. This black lingerie was worn by Marilyn for baseball legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding night. Slippers with glass and white faux fur straps were valued 10 years ago at over USD $100,000. Also on display is a USD $12,000 lace nightcap as well as a bathing suit that was quite scandalous at the time for being a midriff baring two piece, in US size 16. A polka dot dress on show is known as the willpower dress because it took sheer willpower in the 50s to wear a strapless dress. Head scarves on display were worn to shield herself from the paparazzi. Jeanne Wolf, a veteran Hollywood journalist says: "We loved and adored her and still do. There's something about her very strong. You know she came form utter poverty. She should have had absolutely no exceptions in life and rose to be well arguably the most famous movie star in the world. There was something about her, that no one looked like her. No one reminded you of her. She invented herself. She created herself and in the midst of all of that, there was something so utterly exposed and fragile about her." Her dresses on display showcase her well documented size fluctuations. Going from 37-23-34 and a US size two when she began her career to 38-23-36 in 1962 - a US size 12. A larger than life poster shows her famous dress blowing scene from the movie "The Seven Year Itch." There are 40 pairs of shoes on display, including a pair of red Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which he made just for her. There is a copy of Marilyn's footprints in cement that were given personally to Sid Grauman, the owner of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They were made in 1953 on the night of the premiere of the classic film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. A lock of her hair as a child sits in a drawer for tourists to get a glimpse of. It is reported she experimented with 10 different blonde shades before deciding on her legendary platinum colour. Wolf says people will like the feeling of being inside the vault to see her things.

So the Prime Minister of Turkey was not given that opportunity. He is after all the Prime Minister of Turkey and he wants to speak." (Question: And he was in his right to walk out and make a point?) "This is a different story. He is angry and I believe we are going to see him now." 13. Cutaway delegates ++MUTE++ STORYLINE Turkey's prime minister stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum on Thursday after reproaching Israel's president over the devastating military offensive in Gaza. The packed audience, which included President Barack Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded accusations. Peres was passionate in his defence of Israel's 23-day offensive in Gaza, which it said targeted Gaza-rulers Hamas and aimed to stop Palestinian militant rocket fire into southern Israeli towns. As he spoke, Peres often turned toward Erdogan, who in his remarks had criticised Israel's strict blockade of the Gaza Strip. "Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against Gaza," Peres said, raising his voice. The heated debate with Israel and Turkey at the centre was significant because of the key role Turkey has played as a moderator between Israel and Syria. Erdogan appeared to express a sense of disappointment when he recounted how he had met with the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert just days before the offensive, and believed they were close to reaching terms for a face-to-face meeting with Syrian leaders. Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in Turkey for talks on Sunday. Erdogan was angry when a panel moderator cut off his remarks in response to an impassioned monologue by Peres defending Israel's offensive. The angry exchange followed an hour-long debate at the forum attended by world leaders in Davos. Erdogan tried to rebut Peres as the discussion was ending, asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, to let him speak once more. "You killed people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on beaches." When moderator repeatedly interrupted, asking him to stop, Erdogan angrily stalked off, leaving behind fellow panelists United Nations Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and Arab League Secretary-General, Amr Moussa.

NETHERLANDS: BRITISH & DUTCH SCIENTISTS MAKE FROG FLOAT IN MID-AIR
 
01:48
English/Nat British and Dutch scientists using a giant magnetic field have made a frog float in mid- air, and might even be able to do the same thing with a human being. The team from Britain's University of Nottingham and the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands has also succeeded in levitating plants, grasshoppers and fish. Scientists at the University of Nijmegen in Holland have managed to make a frog float six feet (approximately two metres) in the air - and they say the trick could easily be repeated with a human. The secret is not magic but a powerful magnetic field which overcomes the force of gravity. The field makes the frog's atoms generate a weak magnetic force in the opposite direction. This causes it to be repelled in the same way as like poles of two magnets. Plants, grasshoppers and fish have been levitated by the research team in the same way. NASA, apparently, is extremely interested in the experiment in order to be able to test the effects of weightlessness on astronauts without having to put them into space. Easy, says team leader Dr Andre Geim. SOUNDBITE: (English) There is no problem with putting a man by this magnetic levitation, to fly in the air. Technically we can do it with you without any problems. SUPER CAPTION: Dr Andre Geim, Director of the High Field Magnetic Laboratory of the Catholic University of Nijmegen And for those worried about the effects on the frog - don't worry. He's not hopping mad - quite the opposite, in fact.

His way - Home Sinatra built from the ground up
 
05:27
(7 Dec 2015) LEAD-IN: It's best wishes and birthday greetings for Ol' Blue Eyes. December 12 marks famed late crooner Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday. The Rat Pack singer lived in various locations during his 82 years. His home in the Palm Springs Desert is now a popular rental property, frequented by music fans and Sinatra obsessives. STORY-LINE: Like so many things in his life, Frank Sinatra did it his way. The Twin Palms Estate, set among the Palm Springs Desert, is the only house Ol' Blue Eyes ever built completely from the ground up. Today, architectural historians say it's the personification of desert contemporary modernism. In 2011, it was designated as a Class 1 Historical Site by the City of Palm Springs. It's also a popular tourist destination, in an area once known as a playground for the rich and famous. According to William Sayegh, a member of the concierge team at Beau Monde Villas, Sinatra was attracted to the area and felt it was "his" spot in the world. The singer and actor commissioned the retreat at the height of his early fame after he made his first million dollars. He originally paid 150,000 US dollars for the air-conditioned desert property. It remained his primary home from 1948 till 1957. Sinatra named it the 'Twin Palms Estate' after the twin palm trees on the front lawn. They still remain there to this day. "One of the great aspects of this house is that Frank Sinatra bought the empty land and had the house built," says Sayegh. "And he was flying around in his plane looking for a site and saw the two twin palm trees in the backyard which are still here and decided this is where he wanted to build his house. He bought the two lots of land and built this wonderful estate with a swimming pool on one lot of land and the house of the other lot of land." Sinatra arrived in the desert town in 1947, with him he brought the allure and sex appeal of glamorous Hollywood. Soon Palm Springs became a jet set destination for Hollywood's royalty. Neighbours included comedian and actor Jack Benny, actor Cary Grant and singer Al Jolsen. The sprawling one floor estate boasts two addresses - the swimming pool and cabana are on one lot of land, the house on the other. Spanning 45-hundred square feet (4,180 square metres), the address boasts four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a swimming pool shaped like a piano. Now operated by Beau Monde Villas as a luxury rental property, it's claimed to be the most popular destination to rent in Palm Springs. Architectural historian, Robert Imber, gets a kick out of the home's design. Specifically tailored to Sinatra's taste for Georgian architecture, he says. "He wanted a Georgian styled house. He was very knowledgeable of architecture - loved architecture apparently. They gave him drawings both for Georgian and for contemporary. The mid-century architecture, importantly, was simply the architecture of the day, the contemporary architecture of the day," says Imber, who is also the owner of Palm Springs Modern Tours. "He was then married to Ava Gardner, chose this, and lived here for a good number of years. When this house was built, it was in the middle of nowhere, open desert as far as you could see. There was a landing strip someplace nearby. You flew you're plane out, you looked for Frank's house in the desert and walked over for cocktails." The property's current owners have gone to great lengths to keep as much of the home as possible, they've even added some extra Sinatra memorabilia. Sinatra himself designed the master suite. Unique features include a piano-shaped swimming pool, Sinatra's original Valentino recording equipment, a self-playing piano and period furniture from the era. Sinatra and Gardner were married in 1951 and divorced in 1957.

End of an era for Romania's iconic yet oft-derided Dacia car
 
02:37
Bucharest, 20 July 1. Various of Dacia showroom 2. Various of Dacia cars on Romanian roads 3. Group of Romanians around broken Dacia trying to fix engine 4. SOUNDBITE (romanian) voxpop: "If you have this car it's impossible to be stopped for long. Everybody can fix it and you go on." 5. Various of Dacias modified to be ambulances 6. Various of Dacia police car 7. Dacia on road 8. Dacia carrying market produce 9. Dacia truck with pigs in the back 10. Dacia truck with vegetables in the back Pitesti, 120km (80 miles) north of Bucharest - 21 July 2004 Renault - Dacia factory 11. Various of assembly line 12. Pan from Renault Logan to Dacia truck 13. Last Dacia coming off assembly line, "1959 - 2004" and total number produced written on bonnet, "last car" written on side in Romanian 14. SOUNDBITE: (Romanian) Girjeu, Dacia car engineer: "I feel deep emotion because I worked on the first car 45 years ago and now I have made the last car." 15. Manager signing car 16. People around car 17. Last car and new Renault Logan side by side outside factory STORYLINE: A period of Romanian history came to an end on Wednesday with production of the last ever Dacia 1300 car. The last car, the 1,959,730th vehicle to be produced by the French-owned company, rolled off the assembly line on Wednesday. The last traditional Dacia to be manufactured by Automobile Dacia Groupe Renault was a white Dacia 1300, a replica of the Renault 12. Renault forged a partnership with Automobile Dacia in 1968 during a thaw in communism, in an era when the average Romanian began to aspire to own a car. In 1969, production of the Dacia 1300 began. Romania shook off communism in 1989, and a decade later, Renault bought a 99.43 percent stake in the company. The car provokes mixed sentiments in Romania where it is maligned because it breaks down so often, yet oddly iconic. Factory workers and company officials scrawled their signatures on the car and a worker drove it out of the factory, and parked it in the yard. The last Dacia will probably be donated to a museum, a fitting end to a car which is equated with the birth of the modern automobile industry in Romania. The final 200 Dacias were sold on Tuesday. The car, which used to cost 70,000 lei, three years at the average salary, had a waiting list of two years. It now costs 4,200 lei (5,040 US dollars), the equivalent of 28 months of the average salary, and there is no waiting list. The company will now produce the new Renault Logan car, which will be exported to the Middle East Russia, and Eastern Europe and goes on sale in September. The company will continue to produce the newer Dacia Solenza, and Dacia utility vehicles. Dacia Groupe Renault says there are still an estimated 1.5 (M) million Dacias in the country of 22 (M) million people. Statistics mean little to many Romanians, who often give their cars pet names and practically consider them part of the family. But even those fortunate enough to acquire one had a tough time enjoying it: The late dictator Nicolae Ceausescu rationed gasoline, and the driving of cars was restricted on Sundays. Cars were allowed on the roads on alternate Sundays, depending on their license plate numbers.

And when I got the news that she had died in an accident I was completely devastated. So the fact that I come here now to say goodbye to her is very significant." 17. Cutaway Mandela meeting staff and members of the Spencer family 18. SOUNDBITE: (English) Earl Spencer, brother of Diana, Princess of Wales: "Well it's been a wonderful honour for my family, and for Diana too, and fantastic that such a respected statesman and humanitarian has come here to pay his respects to her. And we're just delighted that he's come it's been a long term commitment and it's finally been fulfilled and we're very very grateful to Mr. Mandela for coming here today. (Question: Would you like to say a few words about your reaction to the collapse of the Burrell trial) Not really." 19. Various Mandela leaving STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela visited the grave of the late Diana, Princess of Wales at her ancestral home in Althorp on Friday. Mandela planted a tree in the grounds of the Northamptonshire estate and laid a wreath at the island burial site of the Princess of Wales. A temporary bridge was erected so the elderly statesman could have access to the island. Her grave is normally off-limits to visitors who can visit a memorial statue on a bank opposite the island. The 84 year old is visiting Britain to discuss a new charity project with Diana's brother Earl Spencer. He will outline proposals to combine the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund with his own charity, which helps young people suffering from Aids in South Africa. Diana met the statesman for initial discussions about the idea five months before her death in August 1997. Mandela said that Diana had made a great impression on him and that the news of her death had been devastating. Spencer said that the visit of the former South African leader was a great honour for his family and the Princess. He declined to comment on the collapse of the Paul Burrell trial. Burrell, Diana's former Butler, had been facing a possible prison sentence for allegedly stealing personal items from the Princess of Wales. Prosecutors dropped the theft charges on Friday, explaining that Queen Elizabeth II had said he told her shortly after the princess's death that he had taken some of Diana's papers for safekeeping. Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris August 31 1997.

UK: PRESIDENT MANDELA'S ROYAL WELCOME TO BRITAIN
 
04:01
(9 Jul 1996) English/Nat Britain is giving the red carpet treatment to Nelson Mandela, the man who smashed apartheid in South Africa. In Britain, on a four-day state visit, the South African President is being hailed as a hero. It's the first state visit to the country by a South African president. President Nelson Mandela's state visit to Britain began according to tradition. Met by the Princess Royal at London's exclusive Dorchester Hotel, the hero of apartheid was whisked off to Horse Guards Parade to inspect a guard of honour. At 12.40 pm local time, a Royal gun salute boomed across the capital as the President's limousine glided into the parade ground. The formal welcoming party, headed by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prime Minister John Major and several top ministers, bore all the traditional pomp and ceremony befitting a visiting head of state. But the South African leader received a rather less formal welcome from the crowd. More than six-thousand people had gathered at the square - the largest turnout for a head of state's welcome since the birth of television. Chanting 'Nelson', 'Nelson', they waved South African flags and craned their necks for a view of the man who was once known as the Black Pimpernel. Britain's Queen Elizabeth appeared pleased to meet Mandela. She made a highly successful visit to South Africa last year, and clearly enjoys Mandela's company. The band of the Irish Guards played the South African national anthem, incorporating the last few bars of the old Afrikaans anthem, signifying the transition from old to new. On Horse Guards Parade, President Mandela, wearing a smart, dark business suit, inspected the honour guard. His walk was stiff, but he appeared as dignified as ever. Then he and daughter Zenani joined their royal escort to parade down The Mall in open carriages to Buckingham Palace. Later in the day, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh gave a state dinner in Mandela's honour. The Queen Mother paid tribute to the South African President by attending her first Buckingham Palace state banquet in almost three years. The 95-year-old Queen Mother sat on Mandela's right. The Queen was on his left. The Prince of Wales, Duke of York, Princess Royal, and Princess Margaret were also present. As were Prime Minister John Major and senior cabinet ministers. In all, around 200 guests were assembled in the sumptuous Palace Ballroom. In her formal welcome to the guest of honour, Queen Elizabeth II stressed the close ties between Britain and South Africa. SOUNDBITE: Mr President, South Africa has a special place in my heart and in the hearts of the British people. Our two counties are bound together by history, by common interest and by ideals and aspirations. SUPER CAPTION: Queen Elizabeth II The Queen and Mandela then touched glasses in a toast to an even tighter bond between their two nations in the future.

Heated exchange as CEO of investment bank testifies, protest

SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "The people who were coming to us for risk in the housing market wanted to have a security that gave them exposure to the housing market, and that''s what they got. The unfortunate thing, and it''s unfortunate but it doesn''t, is that the housing market went south very quickly after some of these securities, not all of them because some of them were done early, but they went. And so people lost money in it, but the security itself delivered the specific exposure that the client wanted to have." 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You don''t believe it''s relevant to a customer of yours that you are selling a security to that you are betting against that same security. You just don''t think it''s relevant and needs to be disclosed. Is that the bottom line?" 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO: "Yes, and the people who are selling it in our firm wouldn''t even know what the firm''s position is." 6. Blankfein sitting before Senate panel 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Carl Levin, Subcommittee Chairman of Homeland Security Committee: "You are taking a position against the very security that you are selling and you are not troubled?" Blankfein: "Senator, again." Levin: "And you want people to believe to trust you?" Blankfein: "Senator I think people do trust us." Levin: "Why, I wouldn''t trust you. If you came to me and wanted to sell me securities and you didn''t tell me that you have a bet against that same security, you don''t think that affects my thinking?" 8. Wide shot of protesters in prison uniforms with Goldman officials'' names around their necks 9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Senator Claire McCaksill, Homeland Security Committee: ++starts on pan of witnesses++ "We have spent a lot of time going through all these documents, and let me just explain in very simple terms what synthetic CDOs are. They are instruments that are created so that people can bet on them. It''s the la-la-land of ledger entries. It''s not investment in a business that has a good idea. It''s not assisting local governments and building infrastructure. It''s gambling, pure and simple, raw gambling." 10. Witnesses seated at table 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michael Swenson, Managing Director, Structured Products Group Trading, Goldman Sachs: "We did not cause the financial crisis, specifically to the mortgage desk, which is what I''m here to speak about. You have two panels in subsequent meetings to speak about that, about the Goldman Sachs and our businesses. We, I do no think that we did anything wrong." 12. Mid shot of clerk taking notes STORYLINE: Defending his company under blistering criticism, the CEO of Goldman Sachs testily told sceptical US senators on Tuesday that customers who bought securities from the Wall Street giant in the run-up to a national financial crisis came looking for risk. Lloyd Blankfein and other Goldman executives were lambasted by lawmakers for "unbridled greed" in an often-electric daylong showdown between Wall Street and Congress - with expletives frequently undeleted. Unrepentant, five present and two past Goldman officials unflinchingly stood by their conduct before a Senate investigatory panel and denied helping to cause the financial near-meltdown that turned into the worst recession since the Great Depression. "Unfortunately, the housing market went south very quickly," Blankfein told sceptical senators. "So people lost money in it."

South Africa - Winnie declines ANC nomination

T/I: 10:51:32 Winnie Madikizela-Mandela on Wednesday (17/12) declined a nomination for the deputy leadership of the ruling African National Congress. Madikizela-Mandela, the controversial head of the ANC's Women's League, had been proposed by her supporters at the congress, but declined to push the matter to a show of hands from the more than 3,000 delegates. Political analysts said it was a shrewd move and would allow her to concentrate on going forward for a post on the party's influential national executive committee, its major decision-making body, later this week. Jacob Zuma, the party chairman, was elected unopposed for the position vacated by Thabo Mbeki, who, as expected, had been elected unopposed to the leadership of the party earlier.

William, Kate, George and Charlotte spend Christmas with the Middletons
 
02:19
(25 Dec 2016) WILLIAM AND KATE SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH THE MIDDLETON FAMILY The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Christmas Day church service at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire on Sunday (25 DEC.). The royal couple is celebrating Christmas with the Middleton family in nearby Bucklebury, instead of with the Queen at Sandringham. They arrived at the church with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate's mother and father - Carole and Michael Middleton - sister Pippa, and brother James also attended the service. A heavy cold kept Queen Elizabeth II from attending the traditional Christmas morning church service near her Sandringham estate in rural Norfolk, England. It is extremely rare for Elizabeth to miss the service, which is a cornerstone of the royal family's Christmas celebrations and brings the monarch into contact with local residents who gather outside for a glimpse of her.

The Duchess of Cambridge dances with Paddington Bear
 
03:13
(16 Oct 2017) THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE DANCES WITH PADDINGTON BEAR The Duchess of Cambridge had an impromptu dance with Paddington Bear on Monday afternoon (16 OCT.17) to sounds of a calypso band playing at Paddington Station in London. The royal was attending an event with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, held for the young beneficiaries of their Charities Forum. As part of the celebrations, guests got to spend the afternoon on a Belmond British Pullman steam train - which features in the upcoming sequel "Paddington 2." Actor Hugh Bonneville, who reprises his role of Henry Brown in the new film, was also in attendance. The actor, also a star of "Downton Abbey," said it was "a great opportunity" to promote the "Paddington 2" and the royals' charities. It's a wonderful way to celebrate more than, I think more than 10 or 12 charities that the Royal Highnesses are supporting and for us to be able say Paddington is on his way again. So it's a great opportunity," Bonneville said, adding, "And also I get to eat marmalade sandwiches on the train." After meeting with some of the young passengers on the train, the royals returned to the platform where the pregnant Duchess was enticed in to a quick dance with Paddington Bear before the train departed on its journey. "Paddington 2" is released in the U.K. 10 November 2017.

Close-up of Nelson Mandela nodding STORYLINE: Former South African President Nelson Mandela beamed on Monday as he watched his grandson reclaim a traditional leadership post that Mandela had renounced decades ago to become a lawyer and dedicate his life to fighting apartheid. Mandla Mandela, 32, was draped in a lion skin, the symbol of royalty, and officially installed as head of the Mvezo Traditional Council by the king of the AbaThembu, Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo, one of six kings of the Xhosa people. The ceremony took place in front of hundreds of well wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly coloured traditional dress and beaded headdresses. It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. "That will make me sleep forever being a happy man in my grave knowing that Mandla has taken this chieftaincy that I was supposed to have taken," said Nelson Mandela. Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications. His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

But a Mexican company has found an innovative use for the country's growing mounds of plastic rubbish by turning it into low-cost housing. STORYLINE: Mexicans throw out more than four-thousand metric tonnes of plastic waste every year, and at the moment, about 90 percent of it ends up on landfills, waterways and beaches, according to the country's National Plastic Industry Association. Only about 10 percent of this plastic waste is reprocessed. Recycling facilities do exist in Mexico, but a lack of awareness among most people about the importance of reducing waste in the environment means that a large amount of plastic ends up on landfill sites. A company called Kuadro Ecological Solutions has spotted an opportunity among all the rubbish. Based on the outskirts of Mexico's second-largest city Guadalajara, Kuadro reprocesses plastic waste and turns it into plastic boards that can be used as a construction material. Every month, 40 metric tonnes of plastic waste from all over the state is sanitised and brought to the company's factory to be processed. Kuadro employs a team of workers to sort through a mountain of drinks bottles, chemical containers, supermarket bags, pipes and even car interiors. ==== You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e697d8aacb8b5b106d48abda1ae84c1a Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

PAKISTAN: PRINCESS DIANA ARRIVES TO RAISE MONEY FOR CANCER HOSPITAL
 
04:56
English/Nat Britain's Princess Diana flew into Pakistan on Thursday to raise money for a cancer hospital, only to find herself accused of flirting and smack in the middle of a political scandal. The ex-wife of Prince Charles is in the eastern Punjab city of Lahore as the guest of cricket star turned politician Imran Khan and his wife Jemima. Diana stepped from the private Boeing 757 of billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith with his daughter, Jemima and her six-month-old son Sulaiman. The former wife of Britain's Prince Charles was greeted by former Pakistan cricket captain, Imran Khan. Wearing a powder-blue shalwar kameez -- the traditional dress in Pakistan -- Diana looked cool despite the intense heat. Khan's wife Jemima seemed happy to allow her friend to remain in the spotlight of the world's press. Diana, who is the guest of the Khan's, is on a mission to help raise 27 (m) million dollars for her host's cancer hospital. It is her second fund-raising visit in as many years. That controversial visit led to critics at the time accusing her of trying to boost Khan's political career. His Justice Movement failed to win a single seat in national elections in February. But Diana's last visit remains controversial, with a Lahore socialite accusing her of having flirting with a waiter in Lahore in 1996. In Islamic Pakistan, where sex outside marriage is a criminal offence and many women do not venture outside the home without a veil, flirting is considered scandalous. Unperturbed by the accusations, which were making headline news in the local press, Diana toured Khan's Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre shortly after her arrival on Thursday. Khan, who led Pakistan's team to victory in the World Cup in 1992, set up the hospital in 1994 in memory of his mother, who died of cancer. He believes Diana's high-profile visit will have the donations flooding in. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Her (Diana) coming here and launching this fund mean we have a chance of collecting our 25 (m) million dollars. It gives us public-relationing, profile, we were able to because of her, invite the top donors in this country which we wouldn't have got normally." Q: How vital is it for you to get that money? A: "It is vital because it is very difficult to constantly keep raising money, eighty percent of patients are treated free. No government help and a hospital of this calibre an expense, especially a cancer hospital, we need an endowment fund otherwise we just cannot sustain this effort." Q: Bearing in mind what happened last year, have you been worried about her security and safety? A: Not at all, last year, I don't expect it to be the rule, and secondly the government has given her a complete state protocol, she is a state guest, OK." SUPER CAPTION: Imran Khan, founder of hospital, politician Diana will host a tea for hospital staff and top Punjab officials on Friday before returning to Britain on Saturday.

(3 Aug 2017) INSIGHTS INTO PRINCESS DIANA'S LIFE BEHIND CLOSED PALACE DOORS FROM HER FORMER BODYGUARD KEN WHARFE Former royal bodyguard Ken Wharfe says his time working for the late Princess Diana was an enjoyable, if sometimes challenging role. Wharfe worked for the Princess between 1986 and 1994. Speaking fondly of the princess, he recalls how she would sometimes slip away from his protection. "It was a challenge, yeah, we had the slip occasionally, it wasn't deliberate, maybe sometimes it was, maybe in a fit of pique, maybe she did get fed up with me or maybe had a point to make, but that's part and parcel of the job which I enjoyed," he says. "I was very lucky to travel with her for eight years around the world in some extraordinary places, but that's one thing. What admired me more about Diana wasn't that, was the way that she seriously attracted herself to those that really wanted her to do something and she did come back to the office and did make something work and was genuinely interested, this wasn't a job of work just to tick the box, oh I've been to that charity, she made things work, made people feel special." Wharfe is a contributor to documentary, "Diana: In Her Own Words," providing commentary on recordings of the late Princess made by voice coach Peter Settelen at Diana's Kensington Palace residence in 1992 and 1993, just after Diana and Charles separated. The tapes were made to help Diana practice public speaking as she struck out on her own, and feature the late princess candidly discussing her personal life, commenting on their sex life, her fury at her husband's mistress and her love for another man. Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, in 1981 and the couple had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, the year before Diana died in a car crash in Paris, aged 36. Charles married his longtime paramour Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. In the recordings, Diana also describes confronting her husband and Parker Bowles at a party - a moment Wharfe says marked "the real beginning of the end" of the royal marriage. "She realized there was no chance of reconciliation," he said. "There was only one direction, and that was divorce." "This was the occasion of Camilla's sister's birthday and she and the Prince of Wales went to this party, which to me was slightly surprising, because Diana must have known this was going to be a difficult one, knowing that Camilla would be there, but that wasn't for me to say, I did my bit," he recalls. "We eventually confronted Charles and Camilla, who were sat on a sofa talking somewhere else in the house. Diana, remarkably calm, said to Camilla, 'Look, don't treat me like an idiot, I know what's going on' and at that point, Camilla said something really strange, which I said in the film, never really understood it, she said 'It's ok for you, you've got two wonderful boys'. Now I knew at this particular point, any chance of any reconciliation here was seriously out of the question and as I say in the film, this was then the real beginning of the end." Wharfe - who has a new book coming out on his time with the princess - says the documentary is a valuable reminder of Diana's role in "the reshaping of the monarchy." Her death unleashed a public outpouring of grief in Britain and around the world. The royal family, whose stoic reserve suddenly seemed out of touch, has since softened its stiff upper lip. William and Harry both campaign for more open discussion of mental health, and have spoken of their own struggles after their mother's death. "They are picking up exactly where their mother left off," Wharfe said You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/3d9dbd56aaf3f80c03aab18bbcc78514 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

UK QUEEN HOSTS JUBILEE LUNCH FOR SOVEREIGN MONARCHS
 
03:19
(18 May 2012) Britain has come under criticism for inviting the king of Bahrain, whose Gulf state has been engaged in a brutal crackdown on political dissent, to a lunch on Friday celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The lunch in Windsor Castle was the largest gathering of foreign royals in Britain since Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, Prince William, was married to Kate Middleton last year. Then, as now, the decision to extend an invitation to members of the Bahraini royal family has angered whose who are upset by the deadly violence deployed against demonstrators since protests erupted in the Gulf state. Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa eventually skipped the royal wedding, saying he didn't want the controversy to tarnish the couple's happy day. But on Friday Buckingham Palace confirmed that his father, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, attended the queen's lunch, along with some 45 other royal guests from around the world. The Foreign Office, which advised Buckingham Palace on the invitations, said that Britain's ties to Bahrain allowed UK officials to talk frankly with the strategic island nation's rulers about "a range of issues including those where we have concerns." Al Khalifa wasn't the only controversial guest dining at Windsor Castle. Swaziland's King Mswati III, who is accused of living in luxury while his people go hungry, also attended the lunch. Other guests included Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands; Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan; the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry also attended the lunch. The Diamond Jubilee marks 60 years of Elizabeth's reign as Britain's monarch.

STORYLINE: Members of the British royal family bid a final farewell to Princess Margaret at Windsor Castle on Friday, 50 years after her father, King George VI, was buried nearby. The service at Saint George's Chapel was private, though a subdued crowd of nearly three thousand wellwishers had gathered outside the gates. The principal mourners were Margaret's children, Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto, along with the queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Margaret's former husband, the Earl of Snowdon. The 101-year-old Queen Mother arrived in a people carrier and entered the building through a different entrance to the rest of her family. Some 450 people, including more than 30 royals, attended the funeral service for the 71-year-old younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II. The princess's rose-covered coffin was shrouded in her red, blue and gold-coloured personal standard during the funeral service. Following cremation at nearby Slough Crematorium, Margaret's ashes were to be placed in the Royal Vault at Saint George's Chapel.

South Africa-Mandela and Nyerere news conference

T/I 10:19:00 South Africa is willing to assist a peacekeeping force in eastern Zaire once leaders in the Great Lakes region agree on what they want, President Nelson Mandela said on Saturday (9/11). Mandela was speaking to reporters after being briefed on the situation in eastern Zaire by former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere, who has taken on the role of central African peace-broker. SHOWS: JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, 09/11 WS house; WS South African President Nelson Mandela and former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere address news conference SOT Mandela: "We do understand the important role which South Africa is likely to play in an initiative of this nature and we want to be part of Africa not only geographically and politically but as part of our commitment and I am waiting for specific information from my leader here and as soon as we get it we'll be able to announce it here"'; C/A press; SOT Nyerere: "The whole of this exercise is an African exercise, this is an African problem. Obviously we don't have all the means otherwise we would not go outside Africa. We don't have all the means but nevertheless it is an African problem and clearly though the countries of the regions are the ones who have met for this problem, we can't envisage an African force seeking assistance from the outside world, we can't envisage a force that does not have South Africa"'; C/A press; SOT Mandela: "The supply of arms to Rwanda was influenced by humanitarian considerations that people who were unarmed are going to be victims of that party outside the border which is being trained and prepared to go back and commit those massacres. It is in that light that we took the decision to arm Rwanda with the consutation of the leaders in that region"; C/A press; Mandela and Nyerere walk back to house; Runs 2.14 You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/1f5525b54009664d056c81ebd1e079ad Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

The two presidents walking up stairs and entering house, zoom out to wide of property STORYLINE: Relations are rocky between President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin, but their meeting began Sunday with handshakes and smiles, and flowers and kisses from Putin for first lady Laura Bush and Bush's mother. Bush waited at his family's Maine seacoast estate as his father, former President George H.W. Bush, met Putin at a nearby airport and rode with the Russian leader in a helicopter to the compound. Emerging from a limousine, Putin handed large bouquets of flowers to Laura Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush, then kissed them on both cheeks. "It's pretty casual up here - unstructured," Bush said about the setting for his talks with Putin. Bush knows what he wants from the visit: convince Putin that a U.S. missile defence system in Eastern Europe would not threaten Russia. Bring the Kremlin behind tough new penalties aimed at Iran's suspected nuclear weapons programme. Generally defrost relations. What the Russian president seeks is less clear. Putin requested a meeting with Bush before going to Guatemala, where Olympic officials are picking a host city for the 2014 winter games.

"To do what? There is Kofi Annan, Kofi Annan is enough there with his team." 13. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and aides making way through delegates 14. Various of Mbeki leaving UNECA building after meeting STORYLINE: President Mwai Kibaki of Kenya on Friday indicated his rival, opposition leader Raila Odinga, should go to court to resolve the country's deadly presidential election dispute. The Kenyan leader was briefing leaders at the African Union (AU) summit on the elections, according to a Kenyan government statement. The situation in Kenya continued to dominate discussions as African leaders met in Addis Ababa for a second day of talks at the three-day AU summit. More than 800 people have been killed across Kenya and tens of thousands have fled their homes since a December 27 vote Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki is accused of rigging. Kibaki indicated that progress was being made in the talks, and outgoing AU Chairperson John Kufuor assured reporters that the union was standing firm behind former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan "to try to achieve a mutually acceptable role for all sides." Talks aimed at ending the crisis, being mediated by Annan, resumed on Friday with an address by his successor, Ban Ki-moon, who appealed to negotiators to "look beyond the individual interest". Ban also met on Friday with Odinga, who accuses Kibaki of stealing December 27 elections and demands a new vote. Kibaki has made clear his position as president is non-negotiable, and the international community is pressing the two to share power. In Ethiopia, Kibaki, who met with Ban Ki-moon a day earlier, welcomed the international mediation effort. But his reiteration of the suggestion the opposition go to the courts indicated the two rivals remain far apart and that negotiations could well be protracted. Still, Kibaki pointed to the start of talks as a hopeful sign, and said: "I am optimistic that we will arrive at a lasting political solution". Tanzanian President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, also the AU's new chairperson, said Annan and his team would be "enough" to deal with the situation in Kenya.

Various surgeons performing operation LEAD-IN: President Barack Obama says it is time for the United States to take action on his proposed health care overhaul because out-of-pocket costs for Americans are spiralling while health insurance companies are reaping record profits. The comments ( Monday 20 July) come as more and more foreigners flock to countries like India seeking medical treatment. According to global accountants, Deloitte, over the next six years medical tourism from the US alone is expected to be worth a staggering $79 billion (US), and India is keen to secure a large slice of that financial pie. STORYLINE: Bangalore may be India's silicone valley, but now it's fast grabbing a reputation for high tech hospitals catering to the needs of westerners, particularly Americans, for whom it makes sound financial sense to seek medical treatment abroad. This hospital is one of many that are hoping to capitalise on this growing trend.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Haruki Murakami, Novelist and winner of 2009 Jerusalem prize: "After receiving notice of this award I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power. Neither of course do I see my books subjected to a boycott. Finally however, after careful consideration, I made up my mind to come here. One reason for my decision is that all too many people advised me not to do it, like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I am told, yeah..." (crowd clapping) 13. Cutaway wide of Murakami at the podium 14. SOUNDBITE (English) Haruki Murakami, Novelist and winner of 2009 Jerusalem prize: "I choose to come here rather than stay away. I chose to see for myself rather than not to see. I chose to speak to you rather than to say nothing. So please do allow me to deliver a message, one very personal message. It is something I keep in my mind, always keep in my mind while I am writing fiction. I have never gone so far as to write it on a piece of paper and paste it to the wall, rather it is carved into the wall of my mind. It goes something like this - between high solid wall and an egg (that) breaks against it I will always stand on the side of the egg. No matter how right the wall may be, how wrong the egg I will be standing with the egg." 15. Pan from Murakami at podium to crowd cheering 16. Murakami surrounded by fans and signing autographs 17. Close-up of autograph with pull out to show two fans holding up a Murakami novel 18. Murakami leaving, surrounded by cameramen and fans STORYLINE Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami was in Jerusalem on Sunday, to receive a prestigious award, despite threats by readers in his native Japan that they would boycott his books should he visit Israel. In remarks he made after he received the 2009 Jerusalem prize, Murakami said he had been "advised" not to visit Israel after its ferocious assault on the Gaza Strip. But he said he ignored the warning. "Like many other novelists I tend to do the exact opposite of what I'm told," he said, to raucous applause. On a more serious note the novelist added, "I chose to see for myself rather than not to see." He had thought long and hard about his decision, he told the audience, which included Israeli President Shimon Peres. "I asked myself whether travelling to Israel at a time like this and accepting a literary prize is a proper thing to do and whether this creates the impression I supported one side in the conflict and that I endorse the policies of a nation that chose to unleash it's overwhelming military power." Murakami had said in an earlier interview with Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot that his main criticism of the Israeli offensive in Gaza was over the vast difference in size between the two sides.

04:47
SHOTLIST AP Entertainment Cape Town South Africa April 22 2013 1. Various Actor Luke Arnold gives guided tour around set of " Black Sails " 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Toby Stephens- actor - on his character: " I play Captain Flint, he is the captain of the Warus pirate ship, most of the plot takes place around Nassau the Island in the Bahamas, which is kind of like a hub, a place when they fence all the stolen goods. He Captain Flint is the chief pirate on the island at the time, he's the sort of the top ranking pirate. He makes the most profit, but when we meet him in episode one he's had a sustained period, a fallow period where he hasn't really been performing too well, so there's, he's on rocky ground and there are other pirates trying to take over from him." 3. Various Actor Luke Arnold gives guided tour around set of " Black Sails " 4.SOUNDBITE (English) Luke Arnold - actor - on the set: "It's incredible I don't know how you can compare this to anything else, it feels like a fully living breathing world that we get to inhabit everyday.When we first came here, because we came over here at the end of last year for pre production, we started boot camp, we were going over our training. And so it's kind of interesting to see the beach being built, it's kind of slowly developed and then there's be a bit more dressing on the set and then the ships would come together and painted and then we would get to go on it for the first time, so it was great being here to see it evolve. It was very different when we first came to how it is now." 5. Various b-roll of set 6.SOUNDBITE (English) Jon Steinberg- writer- on the idea: "I'd kind of always wanted to do a pirate show nobody had really done it, and it kind of felt really right to be explore, there was really no version... of as many pirate moves as they are and as many pirate cliches as they are, no one had ever really looked at that world through a much gritter realistic lens which seemed cool to me, in a world that was so kind of cartoonized there was people that actually live like and what were the realities of that world. We ended up reading, we did a ton of research we sort of settled into this idea of rather than having it be completely historical, attaching it to existing literary figures and sort of once we settled into Flint and Silver, it started to kind of take shape." 7.Various b-roll of set 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Hannah New- actor - on the set : "First day I arrived on set I was completely speechless I just never imagined that we would have this type of homogenous world because when I'm on set and I'm in a scene I know exactly where everything in this town is. I know exactly where the beach, I know where the tanners is, where the coopers is, where the blacksmiths are, Mr. Fraser, where I can go and value my goods. For me that gives you a very bog picture as an actor, you can have a greater sense of belief in a lot of ways." 9.

Migrant family tries to cross into US illegally
 
01:59
(10 Dec 2018) Footage from the border between Mexico and the US shows migrants being detained by US Customs and Border Patrol officers immediately upon crossing the border fence dividing the two countries. One US Customs and Border Patrol officer is seen warning a journalist to not assist migrants "in any way," adding that doing so can lead to "charges of misdemenour or a felony." Thousands of migrants are currently living in crowded tents in Tijuana after a grueling journey through Mexico in the search for a better life. Tired of the long wait to apply for asylum in the US and exhausted from the temporary conditions on the Mexican side, some migrants have resorted to crossing the border illegally.

Standing hand-in-hand with his wife, Kennedy family member Maria Shriver, with her parents, Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, close by Schwarzenegger said he wanted to represent all the people of California. Speaking at the Century Plaza Hotel ballroom Schwarzenegger said he had received a gracious phone call from Governor Gray Davis conceding his defeat. Schwarzenegger pledged to bring jobs back to the state, improve education and restore trust in government, and urged his opponents to join him in solving California's problems. Earlier, as televisions in the ballroom monitored Davis' concession speech, the crowd of about 1,000 applauded when Davis said voters had decided it was time for someone else to serve as governor. Schwarzenegger raised at least 21.5 (m) million US dollars for the race, some 10 (m) million US dollars of which from his own pocket. The celebration must quickly give way to planning for a lightning-fast transition that will take place as soon as the election is certified, and no later than November 15. Schwarzenegger's campaign co-chairman, Republican David Dreier, will lead his transition team, campaign spokesman Todd Harris said.

Evicted white farmer returns to his  farm in Zimbabwe
 
04:00
(22 Dec 2017) A white commercial farmer, who was evicted from his farm in Manicaland province in Zimbabwe, returned to the area on Thursday after local community members said they wanted him back. Robert Smart and his family were welcomed back at their home after community members, local politicians and the country's new government intervened to reverse their forceful eviction by heavily armed Zimbabwean riot police back in June. The tobacco and maize grower was evicted from the estate near Rusape, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) east of Harare, to reportedly pave way for a top cleric, Trevor Manhanga, who had links with then president Robert Mugabe. The grabbing of Lesbury Farm came shortly after Mugabe told his supporters at a rally that all remaining white commercial farmers should be kicked off their properties to make way for the ruling Zanu-PF party's youth and his supporters who had no land. But, according to New Zimbabwe.com, president Mnangagwa's special adviser Chris Mutswangwa said on Tuesday that Smart and his son Darryn should not be disturbed in their farming activities. "These farmers are Zimbabweans and they belong to Manicaland province," Mutswangwa was quoted as saying, adding that the country now needed direct investments to boost the economy. Land is a contentious issue in Zimbabwe, where the government of former President Robert Mugabe, starting around 2000, initiated land seizures and evictions of farmers from the country's white minority, which relinquished power in 1980 after a guerrilla war by black nationalists. Mugabe said the often-violent reform program was meant to redistribute resources to poor blacks, but many prime farms instead ended up in the hands of ruling ZANU-PF party leaders, party loyalists, security chiefs, relatives and cronies. More recently, the situation was further complicated by rifts within the ruling party that led to the military intervention and the victory of president Emmerson Mnangagwa over a faction linked to Mugabe's wife Grace, who previously had presidential ambitions. Mnangagwa in his inauguration speech said farmers would be compensated for the seized land but said the program itself would not be reversed.

Country stars on the first time they heard Randy Travis sing
 
05:16
(17 Feb 2017) COUNTRY STARS ON THE FIRST TIME THEY HEARD RANDY TRAVIS SING Randy Travis' unmistakable baritone voice shook up the country airwaves when he debuted in the late 1980s with songs like "On the Other Hand" that ushered in a wave of neo-traditional country music. Travis, who is recovering from a stroke he suffered in 2013, was honored by many of his peers during a concert this month in Nashville, Tennessee, that also featured younger singers who grew up listening to his voice on the radio. "Buy Me A Boat" singer Chris Jansen said hearing Travis made him want to pursue music. "Well, anytime you hear Randy Travis' music, it's an experience, period," said Jansen. "Because it's real, number one. It's real stories and I can identify with them. So when I heard it, I was like, 'Wow, this is what country music is and I want to do that.'" "American Idol" alum Scotty McCreery said in North Carolina, Travis was all over the stereo. "I grew up back in North Carolina and he is royalty back there in country music," McCreery said. "I would say it was very early on. I was learning his stuff on guitar and playing it all over the place. So I was a young kid for sure." Mark Chesnutt said Travis' voice reminded him of George Jones. "The first time I heard Randy Travis was back in the '80s, I guess," Chesnutt said. "Maybe '85 or something like that. I was driving my truck up to Jasper, Texas to do a gig I had booked up there. I was listening to the radio and they played a brand new record by a guy named Randy Travis. And they played 'On the Other Hand.' And right then, man, I just couldn't stand it anymore. I thought, 'Wow, this is what it's all about.' I finally heard a guy that had a voice that reminded me of George Jones, but was his own." Joe Nichols said his father played him Travis' debut album, "Storms of Life" while they were taking his mother to the hospital to give birth to Nichols' baby sister. "My dad had just bought the 'Storms of Life' tape," Nichols said. "1987 I believe. The tape had been out a couple of years. He loved the song '1982' and 'I Told You So,' 'On the Other Hand.' And he finally bought the record and I think he put it in when we were driving about 20-30 minutes to deliver my little sister. It was something that I wanted to repeat over and over again. And I thought it was a really great country song. So I feel in love with it immediately."

But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work. My understanding is that the U.S., even though they may not be able to vote for the Council as it is now currently proposed, will be able to work with the Council, and so I do expect the Council to be established today. I am particularly happy about it because I think it's qualitatively better than the Commission. The President of the General Assembly has done great work working with all the member states to come up with a document that gives us a credible basis to move forward. And I'm sure the US, which has done so much for human rights, will find a way to work with the other member states to make the Council what it ought to be." 6. Mandela and Annan shake hands 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa: "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them.

School children singing STORYLINE: United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is sure a UN human rights council would be able to work with the United States, even if the US was to vote against it being established, he said on Wednesday. Annan spoke after meeting former South African president Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. Annan said he was optimistic that member states would approve the creation of a new UN Human Rights Council despite vows by the United States to vote against the new body. US Ambassador John Bolton had rejected any compromise that did not reopen negotiations on the council and reiterated that the United States would vote against a resolution to create it on a Wednesday ballot in the General Assembly. A vote was considered likely despite Assembly president Jan Eliasson's repeated calls for the new council to be approved by consensus of the 191 member states. Annan said, "in a normal democratic process, if you can get unanimity, well and good. But if you can't, and an overwhelming majority of the members go for something, I think it should work." "My understanding is that the US, even though they may not be able to vote for the council as it is now currently proposed, it will be able to work with the council," Annan said. Annan noted that the US had done "so much" for human rights in the past. The 191-member UN General Assembly has been unable to agree on a replacement for the current UN Human Rights Commission, criticised for including among its 53 members notorious human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Sudan and Zimbabwe, the AFP news agency reported on Wednesday. Annan is in the final year of a decade at the helm of the United Nations. Mandela commended Annan for his ability to identify with different types of people. "Kofi introduced a new approach of respecting everybody whether he is black or white, and trying to serve them. That is the type of Secretary General of the United Nations that we want." After meeting Mandela, the UN Secretary General visited Soweto and laid a wreath at the Hector Peterson memorial, to remember the first victim of the Soweto uprising of 1976.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Dr Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities: "The reason that we moved the mummy from the tomb, or from the sarcophagus, to this case is to preserve the mummy. The most difficult thing for this mummy: there is five thousand people a day entering inside that tomb, every person gives about 20 grams of water, and this water becomes salt. In about 50 years what is remained from the mummy could be completely deteriorated." 9. Zoom out from mummy's feet to wide of case and Dr Hawass standing by glass case with mummy inside STORYLINE The linen wrapped mummy of King Tutankhamun was put on public display for the first time on Sunday, 85 years after the 3,000-year-old boy pharaoh's golden enshrined tomb and mummy were discovered in Luxor's famed Valley of the Kings. Archaeologists removed the 5 feet, 6 inches tall (170 centimetres) mummy from his stone sarcophagus in his underground tomb, momentarily pulling aside a white linen covering to reveal his shrivelled black face and body. The mummy of the 19-year-old pharaoh, whose life and death has captivated people for nearly a century, was placed in a climate-controlled glass box within his tomb, with only the face and feet showing under the linen covering. "The reason that we moved the mummy from the tomb, or from the sarcophagus, to this case is to preserve the mummy," said Dr Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities. Hawass went on to say that displaying the mummy to the public without the case would have led eventually to its complete deterioration. "Five thousand people a day entering inside that tomb, every person gives about 20 grams of water, and this water becomes salt. In about 50 years what is remained from the mummy could be completely deteriorated," he said. Hawass said scientists began restoring King Tutankhamun's badly damaged mummy more than two years ago after it was removed briefly from its sarcophagus and placed into a CT scanner for the first time for further examination. The mystery surrounding King Tutankhamun and his glittering gold tomb has entranced ancient Egypt fans since Carter first discovered the hidden tomb on November 4, 1922, revealing a trove of fabulous gold and precious stone treasures. Archeologists in recent years have tried to resolve lingering questions over how he died and his precise royal lineage. Several books and documentaries dedicated to the young pharaoh, who is believed to have been the 12th ruler of ancient Egypt's 18th dynasty and ascended to the throne around the age of 8, are popular around the world. In an effort to try to solve the mysteries, scientists removed Tut's mummy from his tomb and placed it into a portable CT scanner for 15 minutes in 2005 to obtain a three-dimensional image. The scans were the first done on an Egyptian mummy and the results did rule out that Tut was violently murdered, however they stopped short of definitively concluding how he died around 1323B.C.

Suspected IS supporters screened in Syria
 
02:57
(22 Feb 2019) Thousands of Islamic State group supporters arrived at a screening center in the desert in eastern Syria on Friday after they left the Islamic State group's last pocket of territory. The men, including dozens of foreign Islamic State group supporters were separated from the women. Children's faces were caked with dust and dirt. Men mostly covered their faces with checkered scarves, looking away. They arrived on at least 36 trucks and two buses through a humanitarian corridor from the militants' last patch of territory in the remote village of Baghouz near the Iraqi border. They were escorted by gun-mounted pick-up trucks belonging to the U.S.-backed fighters who have delayed their final assault on remaining militants, pending the exit of civilians. Recapturing Baghouz would mark an end to the territorial rule of the militants' self-proclaimed caliphate that once stretched across a third of both Syria and Iraq.
