    CHRIS Packham has weighed in on the controversy surrounding The Chasers swimming with dolphins on The Chasers Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles. The show was slammed by the RSPCA earlier this week after the quiz heads were shown swimming with "suffering" captive dolphins at Florida's US Dolphin Research Centre in last Thursday's episode. 5Chris Packham has branded The Chasers' dolphin swim 'unacceptable' Now, nature presenter Chris, who appeared on a celebrity version of The Chase, has branded the dolphin swim as "unacceptable". The Winterwatch star also blasted the production company behind the show for putting Chasers Anne Hegerty, Shaun Wallace and Mark Labbett into a position of controversy. Speaking to the Mirror, he said: "... It's probably not at the forefront of their thinking that, that sort of thing might be seen as unacceptable. "So I suppose if there's any disappointment, it would come from the production companies because they should be on top of this and making sure that their presenters, their contributors are made aware of those issues, and then they've got a choice. 5The Chasers were...
    THE CHASERS have been slammed by the RSPCA after they were shown swimming with captive dolphins while in Florida for ITV's Road Trip series. The Chase brainboxes Anne Hegerty, Shaun Wallace and Mark Labbett visited the US Dolphin Research Centre in last Thursday's episode of The Chasers Road Trip: Trains, Brains and Automobiles. 5The Chasers were shown swimming with dolphins last week The trio were shown getting into the water at the Centre to swim with the animals - but charities have been left unimpressed by the scenes. A spokesperson for the RSPCA said: "We were disappointed to see animals being used in this way on The Chasers Road Trip. "Swimming with dolphins may seem appealing to holidaymakers but we know that in reality they often have restricted space and can find swimming with people all day very stressful." They added to The Mirror: "Keeping dolphins and whales captive deprives them of some of the most basic freedoms and causes them unacceptable levels of stress and suffering. Captivity cannot provide for their needs and they can live shortened lives." 5They...

In 2020, she tried to set the record straight and said she was manipulated by the show's staff. Her explanation was picked up by a TikTok user and went viral with over 25 million views. People are saying her story shows the perils of appearing on reality TV. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In 2012, Zoe Alexander's appearance on "The X Factor" went viral for all the wrong reasons. Now, a TikTok video is explaining Alexander's side of the story. Eight years ago, Alexander was working as a Pink tribute act when she decided she wanted to try out for the British talent show. However, she never got the opportunity to go further than the first audition in front of judges Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, Nicole Scherzinger, and Louis Walsh. After singing a Pink song, the judges told Alexander she needed to find herself as...
    The Queen is expected to receive the Covid-19 vaccine within weeks – and then reveal she has been given it to encourage more people to take up the vital jab. Senior sources say both the 94-year-old Monarch and Prince Philip, 99, will not get preferential treatment, but will instead 'wait in line' during the first wave of injections reserved for the over-80s and care home residents.  Both are expected to accept the offer of the injection on the advice of their doctors. Public health experts believe that if the couple go public about the jab, it could go a long way to combating misinformation spread by conspiracy theorists which, it's feared, could lead to a substantial proportion of the population refusing the vaccine.

    By Mayank Bhardwaj NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Thousands of Indian farmers angered by farm laws that they say threaten their livelihoods have intensified their protests by blocking highways and camping out on the outskirts of the capital Delhi. The government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and leaders of protesting farmers' unions have held several rounds of talks but have not made any progress in breaking the deadlock over the set of laws passed by parliament in September. Although various farmer unions have supported the protest, the agitation is largely led by the growers of relatively well-off states of Punjab and Haryana in India's north. Every year the Indian government spends billions of dollars on buying millions of tonnes of rice and wheat from Punjab and Haryana, and the world's most expensive food procurement programme has now become the centrepiece of India's biggest farmers' protest in years. HOW DOES INDIA RUN ITS MAMMOTH FOOD PROCUREMENT PROGRAMME? After calculating the cost of cultivation, the state-run Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP) announces Minimum Support Prices (MSPs) for more than 22 commodities...

    (Reuters) - Prominent Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, killed in an attack outside Tehran on Friday, was widely seen outside the country as a leading figure in the Islamic Republic's nuclear programme. Iran denies his involvement. WHAT IS KNOWN ABOUT HIM? Western officials and experts believe Fakhrizadeh played a pivotal role in suspected Iranian work in the past to develop the means to assemble a nuclear warhead behind the facade of a declared civilian uranium enrichment programme. Iran denies ever having sought to develop a nuclear weapon. A landmark report by the U.N. nuclear watchdog in 2011 identified Fakhrizadeh as a central figure in suspected Iranian work to develop technology and skills needed for atomic bombs, and suggested he may still have a role in such activity. Believed to be a senior officer in the elite Revolutionary Guards, Fakhrizadeh was the only Iranian the report identified. WHAT DOES IRAN SAY? The U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has long wanted to meet Fakhrizadeh as part of a protracted investigation into whether Iran carried out illicit nuclear weapons research. Showing no sign...
    Princess Diana’s brother has revealed he refused permission for Netflix to film The Crown at their family’s stately home in order to protect her memory. Earl Spencer says he was approached by the programme’s makers to use the Althorp estate in Northamptonshire as a location but said no because the drama is so factually inaccurate and misleading. The latest series of the hit show, which covers Diana’s disastrous marriage to Prince Charles, has been at the centre of a storm of controversy. There has been anger at distressing footage showing the princess’s battle with bulimia in graphic detail, as well as over fictitious and highly misleading scenes purporting to depict her life with the heir to the throne. Critics say The Crown’s sumptuous sets and attention to detail, which is interspersed with actual news footage from the time, has misled many unfamiliar with the story into thinking it is an accurate depiction of events, as opposed to ones that have been largely dramatised and re-imagined for entertainment purposes. And Earl Spencer, 56, who is no fan of the Royal Family, agrees....
    The woman appointed by the World Health Organisation to investigate China’s response to the coronavirus outbreak is facing calls to resign over her close ties to Beijing. Former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark will co-chair the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response, which will examine accusations that China failed to alert the world to the looming Covid-19 catastrophe. But human rights groups fear that Ms Clark’s links to China – in particular her friendship with TV anchor James Chau, a friend of the Duchess of Sussex – could ‘seriously undermine’ the panel’s credibility. Mr Chau’s role as a WHO ambassador is being probed after he was accused of spouting Beijing propaganda.

    The international student competition “Design for Sustainable Cities” open for submissions till 31 December 2020 LONDON, Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — “Design for Sustainable Cities” is an international student competition held by BE OPEN and Cumulus Association in support of the United Nations’ SDG11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. The competition is open to students and graduates of all art, design, architecture and media disciplines of universities and colleges worldwide. According to the UN’s SDG Programme data, since 2007, more than half the world’s population has been living in cities, and that share is projected to rise to 60% by 2030. Cities and metropolitan areas are powerhouses of economic growth. However, they cause and face such issues as increased carbon emissions and resource use. Rapid urbanization is resulting in a growing number of slum dwellers, inadequate and overburdened infrastructure and services, worsening air pollution and unplanned urban sprawl.  It takes creative action to tackle all these issues. All the stakeholders in this international competition programme are positive that creativity, or design-thinking, is integral in the shift to sustainable existence. The objective of “Design for...
    Her voice continues to reverberate down the years. Even now, the phrases she uttered that night are unforgettable — 'There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded', 'A queen of people's hearts', and that third-person warning, 'She won't go quietly'. Princess Diana's 60 minutes on Panorama remains the most hypnotic and spellbinding interview ever seen on British television. As its 25th anniversary approaches next month, the fascination with this most remarkable piece of TV history is undimmed. Three major documentaries have been commissioned to mark the milestone: Channel 5 was first out of the blocks last weekend, next week Channel 4 will air its programme and there is still a retrospective from ITV to come. Even now, with the benefit of a quarter of a century of hindsight, the words 'Diana' and 'Panorama' send a shiver down the spine of courtiers. The spotlight that the programme shone on both the monarchy and its individuals was forensic and shocking.

    ROME (Reuters) - The United Nations' World Food Programme (WFP), which won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for its efforts to combat hunger and promote peace, was founded in 1961 at the request of U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower. * The WFP began as an experiment to see if the United Nations system could deliver food aid. Its first disaster relief operation was to help after an earthquake hit in Iran in 1962. * It gained permanent status in 1965 and calls itself the world's largest humanitarian organisation, dedicated to "saving lives in emergencies, building prosperity and supporting a sustainable future for people recovering from conflict, disasters and the impact of climate change". * It says http://www.wfp.org that, on any given day it has 5,600 trucks, 30 ships and nearly 100 planes on the move, delivering food and other assistance. In 2019 it assisted 97 million people, the largest number since 2012, in 88 countries. * During the coronavirus pandemic, the WFP's logistics service dispatched medical cargoes to over 120 countries. It also provided passenger services to ferry humanitarian and...

    The United Nations’ World Food Programme won the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for its efforts to combat hunger and food insecurity around the world. The prize, which was announced by Nobel Committee chair Berit Reiss-Andersen, is worth 10 million Swedish crowns — about $1.1 million — and will be presented in Oslo on Dec. 10. The WFP, which was created in 1961, provides food to over 90 million people a year, according to CNN.

    The World Food Programme has been announced as the winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts in combatting global hunger. The UN body topped a field of contenders that included climate activist Greta Thunberg, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny and the World Health Organisation for its role in combatting the coronavirus pandemic. Also among the field were US President Donald Trump, who became a surprise nomination earlier this year, and Vladimir Putin, who is nominated every year.   There were 318 candidates - 211 individuals and 107 organizations. Nominations can be made by a select group, including national lawmakers, heads of state and certain international institutions. The deadline for nominations was Feb. 1, which means that those on the front lines of fighting COVID-19 - which was only declared a pandemic in March - appear unlikely contenders. Along with enormous prestige, the prize comes with a 10-milion krona ($1.1 million) cash award and a gold medal to be handed out at a ceremony in Oslo, Norway, on Dec. 10, the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel's death.  This year's...

    His fellow inmates were still rubbing the sleep from their eyes when the men in black came for Salvatore 'Sammy the Bull' Gravano.  It was an April morning in 1995, and a sharpshooter on board a black helicopter hovering over the Federal Correctional Institution in Phoenix, Arizona, watched as an armoured personnel carrier rumbled into the Mesa Unit, a high-security 'prison within a prison'. Six heavily armed men in black jumpsuits, their faces hidden by black hoods, jumped out and marched into the prison unit. They went straight to the cell of a solitary prisoner and ordered him to put on a bulletproof jacket. They were there not to kill him but to save him. Outside the prison, four cars were waiting to escort the personnel carrier at high speed to a nearby military airfield, where a Lear jet was waiting to fly to a destination unknown to anyone except four government officials. Gravano was going to meet Gerald Shur, the remarkable founder of the U.S. Federal Witness Protection Programme. Gerald Shur, the retired founder and longtime head of...
    A turtle with a permanent smile on its face now has good reason for its happy expression as it has been saved from near extinction.  The Burmese roofed turtle has bulging eyes as well as its upturned lips and measures up to two foot long when fully grown.  Its numbers have grown upwards of 1,000 after an ambitious conservation programme spanning the last 20 years.   The Burmese roofed turtle (pictured) has protruding eyes as well as its upturned lips and measures up to two foot long when fully grown Pictured: a Burmese roofed turtle egg. The species lives only in the river systems of Myanmar and in the year 2000 was being considered as a candidate for classification as extinct The species lives only in the river systems of Myanmar and in the year 2000 was being considered as a candidate for classification as extinct.  However, a living specimen was purchased in a Chinese wildlife market and made its way into the possession of an American turtle collector in the early 2000s.

    THOUSANDS of people in England with type 2 diabetes are being offered the chance to try a new weight-loss plan. Some 5,000 patients will get access to the new soups and shakes diet programme on the NHS after trials showed it could reverse the condition. 1Thousands with type 2 diabetes will be offered a new 'soups and shakes' dietCredit: Getty Images - Getty The government hopes that as well as helping people live happier, healthier lives, more action will save the health service money and free up staff time. Five million people in the UK have type 2 diabetes, which is caused when not enough insulin is made in the pancreas or it doesn't work properly. It can lead to dangerously high blood sugar levels which affects everyday life and in severe cases, it can lead to amputations and blindness. What is the new NHS diet?

    THOUSANDS of Brits are set to be given soup and meal replacement shakes as the NHS attempts to tackle type 2 diabetes. Over 5,000 patients in 10 areas across the country will be provided with the "very low calorie options" from today. 1One in ten people over the age of 40 in the UK have type 2 diabetesCredit: AFP or licensors The NHS has hailed the diet as a "life changing programme" and claims that such plans have been known to put type 2 diabetes in remission for people who have recently been diagnosed with the condition. Treatment for diabetes patients is believed to cost the NHS around £10 billion a year. Data from the health service also suggests that one in twenty prescriptions written by GPs are for the treatment of diabetes.

The new plan is set to provide patients with "total diet replacement products". This includes low calorie soups and shakes for three months and they...
    When he formally announced his entry into the 2020 presidential race, Joe Biden declared that he stood for two things - workers who "built this country", and values that can bridge its divisions. As the US faces challenges from coronavirus to racial inequity, his pitch in essence is to create new economic opportunities for workers, restore environmental protections and healthcare rights, and international alliances. He will officially become the Democratic presidential nominee on Thursday when he will deliver this message to a national audience. Here in detail is where the candidate stands on eight key issues. A national test and trace programmeMr Biden's approach to tackling coronavirus, the most immediate and obvious challenge facing the country, is to provide free testing for all and hire 100,000 people to set up a national contact-tracing programme. He says he wants to establish at least 10 testing centres in every state, call upon federal agencies to deploy resources and give firmer national guidance through federal experts. He says all governors should mandate wearing masks. Voters suspicious of federal authority will...
    When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came to power in 2015, he promised a new kind of politics. But now he's facing his third ethics scandal. What's going on? In June, Canada announced it had tapped WE Charity - widely known for its celebrity studded WE Day conferences - to run a new programme for students hard hit by the economic slump. How did that decision lead to allegations of cronyism and conflicts of interest, two federal ethics inquiries, a spotlight on Mr Trudeau's family and calls for him to quit? Here's a guide to the political scandal. This time, it involves Trudeau's familyMr Trudeau is facing the third ethics investigation of his five years in office over the government's decision to award a contract worth up to $43.5m to WE Charity Canada. The programme was designed to connect post-secondary students to paid volunteer opportunities to make up for summer job prospects that had disappeared during the pandemic. It later emerged that Mr Trudeau's mother and brother had been paid for speaking at various WE events over the years. Margaret...

Ministers aim to double uptake to cover more than 30 million people – half of all Brits – to help prevent the NHS being overwhelmed this winter. 2Vets could help give 30million Brits the flu jab as part of biggest vaccination programme in historyCredit: Ableimages Officials are now “actively considering” using animal doctors to hit the ambitious target. Around 15 million people received the flu jab in England last year. But health bosses plan to hugely expand the scheme to avoid a double-whammy of infections. They fear a second wave of Covid during the coldest months could overrun hospitals, if it coincides with a major influenza outbreak. As a result, for the first time ever children starting secondary school and everyone aged 50 to 64 will be offered the vaccine free on the NHS. All shielded patients and their families will also be given the jab. 'VACCINATE 30MILLION BRITS' As revealed by The Sun in May, ministers are keen to vaccinate millions of...
    CHINA is said to be using “Uighur slaves in hellish camps to make coronavirus face masks to export around the world”, a report has claimed.

    Reuters A former Iran defence ministry staffer was executed after being convicted of spying for the Central Intelligence Agency, the country’s judiciary said on Tuesday. Reza Asgari, an Iranian citizen, was executed last week for selling information on Tehran’s missile programme, according to the Islamic Republic judiciary’s spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili, quoted in the country’s official Mizan Online News Agency. Mr Asgari worked in the aerospace division before retiring about four years ago, Mr Esmaili added. “In the last years of his service, he joined the CIA, he sold information about our missiles… to the CIA and took money from them,” Mr Esmaili said, according to the Associated Press. “He was identified, tried and sentenced to death.” Mr Esmaili said that another Iranian found guilty of espionage, Mahmoud Mousavi Majd, would also face the death penalty for helping the US locate Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani, according to an AFP translation of the statement. Soleimani was killed in an American drone strike on 3 January after Washington said he coordinated attacks against US troops in the region. Iran retaliated by...

    The US Supreme Court has ruled against President Donald Trump's bid to end a programme that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. The justices upheld lower court rulings which found his move to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme was "unlawful". It protects "Dreamers" - undocumented youths brought to the US as children. The Trump administration has sought to end the Obama-era policy since 2017. The Supreme Court took up the case after lower courts ruled that the Trump administration did not adequately explain why it was ending the programme, criticising the White House's "capricious" explanations. On Thursday, the justices voted 5-4 to uphold the lower courts' findings that the administration's order violated the Administrative Procedure Act, which says a government action cannot be "arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion or otherwise not in accordance with law" or "unsupported by substantial evidence".The other 'Dreamers' facing uncertain future The ruling, which does not prevent the Trump administration from continuing in its efforts to end the programme, affects an estimated 700,000 young people who entered...
