    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Women’s rights activists in the Afghan capital of Kabul insisted Sunday they would continue fighting for their right to education, employment and participation in Afghan political and social life, and said a recent Taliban decree banning forced marriage was not enough to address the issue of women’s rights. The decree, issued Friday, comes as poverty surges in Afghanistan following the Taliban takeover of the country in mid-August amid the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO troops. Foreign governments have halted funds to the aid-dependent country since then. Social rights activist Farida Akbari said the new Taliban government should permit women access to education and employment. Currently education at the secondary school level and above has been banned, while most women have been banned from working. Akbari said Friday’s decree on forced marriage would not have any particular benefit to women living in cities, where such practices are rarer. “It is not acceptable for us to get married, eat and stay at home,” she told reporters. “We want our role in politics, economics, jobs, education and...

    President Joe Biden dismissed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “red line” Ukraine remarks on Friday as he left the White House for the weekend. “I won’t accept anybody’s red line,” Biden replied when asked about comments Putin made Tuesday in Moscow about the Ukraine situation. Putin had described his concerns that “some kind of strike systems” from NATO could be deployed in Ukraine, and warned if that were to happen, it would trigger his “red lines.” “What are we to do in such a scenario?” he said. “We will have to then create something similar in relation to those who threaten us in that way. And we can do that now.” “Creating such threats would be red lines for us,” Putin said, referring to Ukraine. “But I hope it doesn’t come to that. I hope that a sense of common sense, responsibility for both our countries and the world community will prevail.” U.S. Intelligence officials revealed Russia is planning a possible military offensive in Ukraine, with plans to deploy 175,000 troops on the Ukraine/Russia border. Earlier Friday, Biden said he was in lengthy...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Andrew Wiggins and his coach, Steve Kerr, were both able to admit after avenging their loss to the Suns that Golden State’s newly aggressive wing wasn’t at his full capacity in their first meeting earlier this week. At full health Friday, Wiggins showed what he is capable of with 19 points while shadowing Chris Paul on defense in the Warriors’ 118-96 win Friday, evening the season series with the Warriors’ top competition in the West after a loss Tuesday in the desert. Back spasms bothered him the morning of their first clash, and he turned in his quietest performance since his awakening against Minnesota. “I thought Wiggs was fantastic defensively, just setting a tone on Chris right away, hounding him everywhere he went,” coach Steve Kerr said. “And also contributing offensively the way he did, I thought Wiggs had a great game.” Wiggins said he felt far better Friday. It showed. With Devin Booker out, Wiggins took on the task of guarding Paul, the Suns’ slippery point guard, often picking him up at...

    The parents of Michigan school shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley were taken into custody in Saturday's predawn hours after an extensive manhunt for the couple, who had failed to appear for their arraignment Friday.  James and Jennifer Crumbley face involuntary manslaughter charges in connection to Tuesday's tragedy at Oxford High School for refusing to take their son out of school after staff said he exhibited warning signs of violence and needed counseling, according to authorities.  Ethan Crumbley, 15, was arrested after he allegedly opened fire at the school, killing four students and wounding seven other people. Following an hours-long search in Michigan on Friday that included U.S. Marshals' offers of $10,000 rewards each for their capture, law enforcement officers found the parents in Detroit, where they were reportedly hiding in an art studio after leaving their car in the building's parking lot.  A business owner called 911 after seeing the suspects’ car and noticing a woman running away from it.

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Through clouds of billowing dust, two men circle each other warily before one plunges forward, grabbing his rival’s clothing and, after a brief struggle, deftly tackling him to the ground. The crowd, arrayed in a circle around them, some sitting on the ground, others standing or clambering onto the backs of rickshaws for a better view in a park in the Afghan capital, erupts in cheers. Victor and vanquished smile good-naturedly, embracing briefly before some of the spectators press banknotes into the winner’s hand. The scene is one played out each week after Friday prayers in the sprawling Chaman-e-Huzori park in downtown Kabul, where men — mainly from Afghanistan’s northern provinces — gather to watch and to compete in pahlawani, a traditional form of wrestling. Although the Taliban, who took over Afghanistan in mid-August, had previously banned sports when they ruled the country in the 1990s, pahlawani had been exempt even then. Now, just over three months into their new rule of the country, a handful of Taliban police attended the Friday matches as...

    A seventh round of negotiations to rehabilitate the 2015 Iran nuclear deal floundered this week after the regime renounced the tentative agreements struck over the previous six rounds of meetings. “Iran, right now, does not seem to be serious about doing what's necessary to return to compliance, which is why we ended this round of talks,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Friday during the Reuters NEXT Virtual Global Conference. “We will see if Iran has any interest in engaging seriously, but the window is very, very tight.” U.S. and Iranian officials descended on Vienna this week for the first round of “indirect talks” — mediated by Western European allies, China, and Russia — since the inauguration of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi this summer. Iranian officials came equipped with two documents that set out new terms of the talks, prompting Western officials, including the European powers that worked to preserve the deal following the U.S. withdrawal in 2018, to abort the meeting. “Tehran is walking back almost all of the difficult compromises crafted after many months of hard work,” senior...

    NEW YORK (AP) — A Columbia University graduate student was fatally stabbed and another man was wounded in separate attacks near the university’s upper Manhattan campus, authorities said Friday.

    BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon’s information minister is expected to announce his resignation Friday, in a bid to ease an unprecedented diplomatic crisis with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries. Local media reported that Minister George Kordahi intends to step down, weeks after televised comments he made that were critical of Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen sparked the crisis. In response, Saudi Arabia recalled its ambassador and banned all Lebanese imports, affecting hundreds of businesses and cutting off hundreds of millions in foreign currency to Lebanon, which is already facing a major economic meltdown. Kordahi had refused to resign over the comments made before he assumed his Cabinet post, prolonging the crisis. Kordahi had said the war in Yemen was futile and called it an aggression by the Saudi-led coalition. Yemen’s war began with the 2014 takeover of Sanaa by the Houthi rebels, who control much of the country’s north. The Saudi-led coalition entered the war the following year, determined to restore the internationally recognized government and oust the rebels. Lebanon is sinking deeper into an economic crisis, the...

    Angela Lee is poised to return and keep the atomweight championship around her waist. Trash talk is a common aspect of combat sports, regardless of whether it is boxing, mixed martial arts, wrestling, or anything else. Just look to individuals like Jake Paul and Conor McGregor as two people that shine in that area. But ONE Championship atomweight champ, Angela Lee, will not partake in those activities heading into her return to the cage. “I think there’s huge mutual respect among us, I just appreciate the respect,” Lee said as she made the media rounds before her return to fighting. “I think that you don’t need to trash talk your opponent, I don’t think that’s who they are and that’s not who I am. We don’t need to put on a show for the world and create some kind of drama that’s not there.” Angela Lee is coming back to defend her title against a new contenderLee is expected to return to action in early 2022.

Martin Butterworth, prosecuting, said she had only been released from jail a couple of weeks ago for breaching a court order imposed...
    The omicron Chinese coronavirus variant was present in Europe before it was identified in South Africa, Dutch health authorities revealed Tuesday. According to the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the omicron variant was infecting the Netherlands nearly one week before the world awakened Friday to the strand experts and scientists said first originated in South Africa. The cases detected from South Africa at the Amsterdam airport were reportedly not the first time the omicron first reached Europe and other nations. Belgium and Germany also believe the variant was circulating within their counties before Friday, according to CBS News. “It is not yet clear whether the people concerned [in the earlier cases] have also been to southern Africa,” the RIVM said. “In the coming period, various studies will be conducted into the distribution of the Omicron variant in the Netherlands.” The new information casts light on just how little the so-called experts and scientists know about the coronavirus virus, much less political policies with horrific unintended consequences instituted to supposedly protect populations. Passengers walk at the Schiphol airport on November 29, 2021. Dutch health...

Senior Director Brian Field said shoppers are more enthusiastic about shopping in stores than they were last year. He said while shoppers are still concerned about the pandemic, increases in online shopping and hybrid shopping, like curbside pickup, contribute to the data. He also said consumers started shopping earlier this year and opted not to wait for sales because of supply chain concerns.

    New York City is already seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations as the holiday season gets underway.  Although holiday travel and gatherings have just started and the coldest days lie ahead, the city just recorded a spike of 2.22percent in COVID-19 positive test rate - the highest since September, Bloomberg reported.  More than 100 patients were hospitalized with the virus just on Friday, marking a 25 percent spike from roughly two weeks ago.  New York City recorded 485 people hospitalized due to the virus on November 27, over 100 more than two weeks ago. City and health officials have already warned New Yorkers that the worst is yet to come as more cases are expected to be recorded after the Thanksgiving weekend, and the country grapples with the threat of the Omicron variant, which was first detected in South Africa.   On Monday, Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed that no cases of the variant have yet been recorded in the city, but said there were fears that it could spread rapidly to the city.  He reissued advice saying that all...
    LIVERMORE, CA – NOVEMBER 26: Customers look for their favorite Christmas tree at Moore Christmas Trees lot in Livermore, Calif., on Friday, Nov. 26, 2021. (Ray Chavez/Bay Area News Group)  Prepare to open your wallet a little wider this year if you want a Christmas tree. From supply chain problems to the effects of climate change and hiring challenges, it’s gotten harder and more costly for Christmas tree sellers to find product — and that means more sticker shock for buyers, too. Oh, and here’s another warning: Don’t wait too long to bring yours home. “The economic instability caused by COVID-19 and the impacts of extreme weather have affected all parts of the global and U.S. supply chain, and Christmas trees are no exception,” the American Christmas Tree Association warned recently. “These challenges mean that there will be fewer live and artificial Christmas trees available this year, and those that are available will cost more than before.” A June triple-digit heatwave in Oregon, where many West Coast sellers buy from, damaged some trees — especially popular Noble firs, which bud...
    The new strain of COVID-19 that has caused worldwide alarm the last week has been detected in North America for the first time. Two cases of the Omicron variant were confirmed in Canada. Both were in Ottawa, Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott said in a statement released Sunday evening, Nov. 28. The two infected people had traveled from Nigeria and have been isolated, Elliott said. The Omicron variant, whose name comes from the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet, is spreading fast in Europe after the first case was identified by scientists in South Africa on Tuesday, Nov. 9. Including Canada, it's now been confirmed in 17 countries. No cases of the new variant have been identified in the United States to date, but Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical advisor to the president, said Sunday that it will arrive in America. "We all know when you have a virus that has already gone to multiple countries, inevitably it will be here," Fauci told ABC News. "The question is, will...

A 48-year-old woman was walking near South Border Road on the Medford-Winchester line in the Fells around 8 a.m. Friday when prosecutors say McCue hit her with a rock several times, sexually assaulted her and then ran away.
