Using fictitious social media accounts, a man would send photos of his penis and sexually harass his colleagues.
The siren heard over the opening seconds of “A Cop Movie” doesn’t emanate from a car at all, but from an actor, imitating the piercing sound of approaching police with her voice. That’s a fitting fake-out with which to begin Alonso Ruizpalacios’ astoundingly original look at what makes an effective Mexico City cop. Technically, this […]
World Health Organization officials said on Friday the risk of an Ebola outbreak spreading from Guinea to its neighbours was "very high" and that some neighbouring countries were not prepared for outbreaks or for future vaccination campaigns. WHO's Guinea representative, Georges Alfred Ki-Zerbo, told a virtual briefing that 18 cases had been identified and four of those people had died. So far, 1,604 people have been vaccinated against Ebola in the new outbreak in Guinea, the first resurgence of the virus there since a 2013-2016 outbreak - the world's worst - which spread to several other West African countries and killed thousand of people.
Britain's coronavirus lockdown squeezed demand for staff last month, with spending on temporary workers growing at its slowest rate in seven months, a survey of employment agencies showed on Friday. The Recruitment and Employment Confederation said overall demand for staff had stabilised at a lower level after falling sharply in February, with a further decline in permanent hiring. "The jobs market remains on hold with hiring decisions stalled, people reluctant to seek new roles and the growth in temporary billings has also slowed," said James Stewart, vice chair of accountants KPMG, who sponsor the survey.
The already muddy waters around censorship of streaming content in India grew murkier on Friday with the country’s Minister for Information & Broadcasting and the Supreme Court sending out diametrically opposite messages. Controversy erupted in recent days over Amazon Prime Video India original series “Tandav,” which caused offence to some Hindus, forcing the streamer to […]

Hashimoto, who took charge of the Games organising committee two weeks ago, directly addressed low support among the Japanese public for holding the Games during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finch clubbed 26, including four sixes, off the final over of Australia's innings to take their score to 156 for six, which proved more than enough to complete a comeback after losing the first two matches in the series. New Zealand's bowlers, led by Ish Sodhi's 3-32, had taken wickets at regular intervals and contained Australia reasonably successfully until Finch hit Kyle Jamieson all over the ground in the final over.
Sarong-like cloths strung out on lines may seem innocuous, but long-held superstitions around women's clothes appear to have stopped security forces in their tracks as they move to quell an uprising against Myanmar's junta.
Tokyo 2020 President Seiko Hashimoto promised on Friday to revive the Japanese people's passion for the Summer Olympics and "turn their concerns into excitement." Hashimoto, who took charge of the Games organising committee two weeks ago, directly addressed low support among the Japanese public for holding the Games during the COVID-19 pandemic. She told reporters that organisers would do whatever it takes to make the Olympics safe and secure so that they could gain the confidence of the people, who showed strong support for the Games before the onset of the pandemic last year.
Women in European Union countries have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic because they make up the vast majority of workers in health and other frontline jobs, an EU report said on Friday. The pandemic has also brought a rise in domestic violence against women, the EU's annual report on gender equality said. "The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected women's lives," it read.
The French rugby team's anti-COVOD-19 protocol will be strengthened, with players and staff not being allowed to leave their hotel ahead of Six Nations games, federation president Bernard Laporte said on Friday. France's game against Scotland last weekend was postponed after 12 French players and five staff members, including coach Fabien Galthie, tested positive for the coronavirus. French players were seen in the streets of Rome eating waffles before their Six Nations opener against Italy on Feb. 6, and Galthie left the training camp to attend his son's rugby game in Paris the day after the game.
South Africa is negotiating with an African Union (AU) platform to buy COVID-19 vaccines for at least 10 million of its people, a top health official said on Friday. The country was provisionally allocated 12 million doses developed by AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson in an AU vaccine plan, but it was unclear how many vaccines it would seek to buy after it halted plans to use the AstraZeneca shot. Sandile Buthelezi, Department of Health director-general, did not say which vaccines the country wanted to buy via the AU in comments before a parliamentary committee.
(This article contains major spoilers for the series finale of Marvel’s “WandaVision” on Disney+) Well, that sure was something. The Marvel series “WandaVision” has come to an end, and it gave us a major new superhero: Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), who will likely go by the name Spectrum. Monica didn’t have a whole lot to do in the “WandaVision” finale beyond showing off one of her powers — the ability to phase like Vision (Paul Bettany) does — but at the end of the episode, during the credits, we got a clue about what she’ll be doing next. And where she’ll be going. So in the mid-credits scene, the first of two bonus scenes at the end of the “WandaVision” finale, we catch up with Monica after everything has settled down in Westview. Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) is gone, Agatha (Kathryn Hahn) is stuck in her new life in the suburbs, and white Vision has gone who knows where — and Monica meets with a Skrull who has been disguised as human law enforcement. Also Read: Elizabeth Olsen Says 'WandaVision' Is a 'Complete Tee-Up' to 'Doctor Strange 2' (Video) “I was sent by an old friend of your mother’s,” the Skrull says. “He heard you’d been grounded. He’d like to meet with you.” “Where?” Monica asks. The Skrull responds by simply pointing upward. In case it’s not clear for you, the Skrull — one of the race of shapeshifting space aliens introduced in “Captain Marvel” — is referring to outer space with that finger point. And the person she mentioned — the old friend of Monica’s mom — is almost certainly Nick Fury. Also Read: 'WandaVision' Just Retconned the MCU in a Really Big Way If you’re wondering why Nick Fury would be in space, well, we don’t know either. But while we don’t know why he’s up there, we do know that he’s up there. This was a fun and confusing bit of information we learned from the post-credits scene on “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” At the end of that film, we learn that the person we thought was Nick Fury was actually a Skrull named Talos. And Fury was in outer space on some kind of big space station. We don’t know what he was doing there, though. We’ll have to wait for some unknown future movie or Disney+ show to find out more about that. You might want to assume “Captain Marvel 2” will bring our follow-up, but that seems like a long time to sideline Samuel L Jackson. It’s possible, of course, that this Skrull was talking about somebody else who was friends with Monica’s mom. It probably wouldn’t be Captain Marvel, judging by the face Monica made early in “WandaVision” when her name popped up. It could be another Skrull, possible somebody we haven’t met. Or it could be somebody else completely. But it’s probably Nick Fury. That’s where my money is. Read original story ‘WandaVision’ Mid-Credits Scene Explained At TheWrap
