    WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Security forces in Poland were tasked Thursday with securing the nation’s eastern border amid a migration fight with Belarus while also protecting the capital and other cities during Independence Day marches organized by far-right groups that turned violent in the past. Poland has objected since the summer to the increasing number of refugees and migrants trying to enter the country from Belarus. The Poland-Belarus border is also part of the European Union’s eastern border, and the EU accuses the regime in Belarus of encouraging illegal migration to create instability in the West. The political standoff took on a larger scope this week as a large group of asylum-seekers, most of them from the Middle East, arrived at the border. Some tried to force their way across, and hundreds, possibly thousands, remain in makeshift camps in freezing temperatures, deepening humanitarian concerns. Bartosz Grodecki, a deputy interior minister, said in an interview with the Polsat broadcaster on Thursday morning that there were more attempted crossings overnight, including one involving a group of 150 migrants. Grodecki said...

The protests came hours after President Tayyip Erdogan defended the withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention, negotiated in Turkey’s biggest city in 2011 and designed to prevent and prosecute violence against women and domestic abuse. “We will not be silenced, we will not fear, we will not bow down,” chanted women among a crowd of several hundred who gathered in the capital Ankara. “We are not giving up on the Istanbul Convention,” read a large purple banner. “I find it unbelievable that the government is taking away rights instead of improving them. We wake up every day to a femicide or a trans murder and as women it’s not possible to feel safe in this country,”...

    ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish police have detained 13 people who participated in a Women’s Day march for allegedly insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, officials and news reports said Thursday. Thousands of protesters had walked along a street in central Istanbul on Monday to denounce violence against women in Turkey, where more than 400 women were killed last year. Unlike previous years when police broke up similar demonstrations, the march ended peacefully. However, police later inspected videos of the demonstration and on Wednesday detained 13 people — including a minor — who participated in the protest, the Istanbul governor’s office said. It said the group had chanted “slogans” but did not elaborate. The Cumhuriyet newspaper and other media said the suspects were detained for questioning over slogans deemed to be insulting to Erdogan. Insulting the president is a crime in Turkey, punishable by up to four years in prison. Thousands of people, including journalists, politicians, actors and schoolchildren, have been prosecuted for alleged insults to Erdogan. The detentions came despite a pledge by Erdogan last week to enact human rights...

    Women of the oppressed Uyghur minority demonstrated at the Chinese consulates in Kazakhstan and Turkey on Monday, International Women’s Day, to call attention to the Chinese Communist Party’s brutal campaigns of “re-education” and ethnic cleansing against their families. Human rights magazine Bitter Winter reported on the demonstration in Kazakhstan, which borders on China’s Xinjiang province, where the Uyghurs and other minorities have been herded into “re-education camps” and subjected to population control programs: Halida Akhytkhan has lost her entire family. “In 2018, she says, they arrested my three sons — Rahimbergen Satipaldi, Rahimbergen Orazjan, and Rahimbergen Ahimetjan — and their wives. Then put them all into the concentration camps. My daughters-in-law were sentenced to prison terms from 2 to 6 years, while 28 years were given to my two elderly sons, and 10 years to my youngest son.” Halida is very popular on the Web, where she tells her story as a grandmother of 14 boys and girls living in Xinjiang — but she does not know where they have been taken now. Their men are accused of “separatism” or “religious...

    Photo credit: Justin Sullivan, Getty Images. Across America, many families will be getting out their Christmas decorations as they wrap up their Thanksgiving meals, but President Donald Trump is ready to celebrate Festivus, taking to Twitter Thursday afternoon for a fiery airing of grievances. Among his targets were some of his favorite metaphorical punching bags: Fox News, NFL players protesting racial injustice, and states that shockingly certified President-elect Joe Biden as the winner for the silly reason that he got more votes than Trump. Trump had started the morning with this aggrieved theme, kicking off Thanksgiving with a tweet railing against the “100% RIGGED ELECTION.” After another tweet touting Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision blocking Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s pandemic restrictions on attendance at religious services, the presidential Twitter feed fell silent for a few peaceful hours. HAPPY THANKSGIVING! https://t.co/56e8Qy7O22 — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 26, 2020 Shortly after 3:00 pm ET, Trump was back on Twitter. He had a lotta problems with you people, and now we were going to hear about it. First, the NFL.

    With it being Thanksgiving, you might have a desire to shake things up a bit by going to Chipotle instead of doing a turkey, but will they be open? When it comes to Chipotle, they have a variety of options and something for everyone. Whether it’s beef, chicken, beans, or the creamy and delicious white queso cheese. They clearly are a place that has a variety of options that you can mix and match with at your leisure. So when it comes time to prep Thanksgiving dinner, do you want to cook a turkey in the oven for hours on end, mash and peel the potatoes, but not in that order, and then have to spend hours cleaning up everything after your ungrateful family just slinks away into the corners to play with their devices? Of course not, that sounds awful. Do you know what doesn’t sound awful? A Chicken burrito, chips, and queso cheese instead. The only question you have left to ask is, “…are they open on Thanksgiving?” Sadly the answer is no. While the restaurant is open...
    Thanksgiving hosts often use turkey as the centerpiece. LauriPatterson/Getty Images You should go turkeyless for Thanksgiving, even if it's been an annual staple on your family's table forever. I know it seems shocking, but hear me out. This year, your holiday gathering will likely be smaller due to COVID-19 restrictions, so if less than half of your table wants turkey, it's not worth the massive task of cooking it at all. Take this opportunity to try out a different recipe or make your family's favorite red meat roast instead. Now more than ever, when we may not be able to celebrate with loved ones, the holiday is about comfort and enjoying the foods you like best — you're not beholden to the bird.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Let's all stop pretending — we don't actually like eating turkey. I'm very used to being the only one in the conversation who will admit to not liking the standard Thanksgiving centerpiece. But going into the holiday this year, I'm seeing and hearing more people willing to speak...

    The O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway race concluded on Sunday, and many drivers absolutely loathed the conditions. In fact, Cup Series driver Chris Buescher admitted that describing the weather there is quite simple. “It’s just miserable. Miserably hot,” he noted. “It could very well be our hottest race of the year to date, and possibly for the year.” Meanwhile, John Hunter Nemechek quipped on the radio. “I now know what a turkey feels like on Thanksgiving Day, sitting in an oven.” According to weather forecasts, drivers faced temperatures of 96-98 degrees with chances of climbing to 105 and 110. Interestingly, the Circuit General Manager, Eddie Gossage, was quite pleased because he wanted a slick and greasy track. He believes that those track conditions are exactly what the drivers pine for. “I now know what a turkey feels like on Thanksgiving Day sitting in an oven.” Radioactive: Texas. pic.twitter.com/hLzu7dTGoc — FOX: NASCAR (@NASCARONFOX) July 21, 2020 How bad were the conditions at the Texas Motor Speedway?
