Nora Quoirin autopsy in Malaysia finds she probably died of starvation and stress

Police say no evidence of kidnapping in case of British teenager who disappeared from eco-resort on 3 August

The autopsy of Nora Quoirin, the 15-year-old who went missing in the Malaysian jungle, has concluded that she likely died of starvation and stress after spending seven days in the jungle.

Speaking outside the police headquarters in Seremban, police chief Mohammad Mat Yusop said Nora had died “two to three days ago” from a “ruptured ulcer in her abdomen, possibly caused by starvation or stress”.

Thanks To Team Trump, Biden Could Score A Big Debate Win Just By Staying Awake
Person, woman, man, camera, TV.After weathering months of insults and millions of dollars in advertising painting him as senile, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden could likely just recite those five words – which President Donald Trump previously claimed proved his own cognitive acuity – and instantly exceed expectations in Tuesday night’s first debate.“The president’s branding has ensured that all ‘Sleepy Joe’ needs to do to survive the debate is to stay awake,” said Terry Sullivan, a Republican consultant who ran Florida senator Marco Rubio’s 2016 presidential bid. “Not a real well thought-through strategy when you’re debating a guy who has a lot more experience.”“Totally,” agreed David Axelrod, who was a top aide in former president Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. “It is one of the only times, maybe the only time, that a candidate has so persistently worked to lower expectations for a debate opponent and build them up for himself. Usually, it’s the other way around.”Trump and Biden are scheduled to meet in the first of three debates on Tuesday night (here’s how to watch in the UK) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The second is set for October 15 in Miami and the third for October 22 in Nashville, Tennessee. Vice president Mike Pence and Biden running mate Kamala Harris are scheduled to debate on October 7 in Salt Lake City.Historically, candidates heading into these encounters try to raise expectations for their opponents – the easier to cast their own performance as a great success afterward. Indeed, Trump’s professional campaign staff have been doing just that in recent weeks.“He always can turn it on for debate night,” Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh said of Biden. “He’s been a Washington politician for 47 years, spent decades in the Senate where all they do is debate, won two debates running for vice president, and bested two dozen opponents in 11 primary debates this time. He knows what he’s doing. That’s the Biden we expect to see.”Yet Trump himself has undone those efforts at each turn, taking nearly every opportunity to ridicule Biden’s intelligence, cognitive abilities or both.The president’s branding has ensured that all ‘Sleepy Joe’ needs to do to survive the debate is to stay awake.Terry Sullivan, Republican consultantAt an airport hangar rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, on September 3, Trump told his audience that Biden did not understand international trade back when he was in the Senate, and understands nothing at all today.“He never got it, still doesn’t get it. Now he really gets nothing, I am telling you. He didn’t get it in prime time. Now he really doesn’t get it,” Trump said.Four days later, at a news conference on the North Portico of the White House, he repeated that insult, and added another: “Biden is a stupid person. You know that. You’re not going to write it. But you know that.”Last week, at a rally in Jacksonville, Florida, Trump claimed Biden was too far gone to even understand the policies he is proposing. “Now Biden has put forward the most dangerous and extreme platform of any major party nominee in history. The bad news is he doesn’t even know what the hell it is,” Trump said.Two nights later, at a rally outside Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Trump was back to the name-calling: “A dumb guy. He’s a dumb guy. Always known as the dumb guy.”And on Sunday, Trump returned to a previous baseless claim accusing Biden of somehow improving his mental acuity by using performance-enhancing drugs. Challenged about the source for his information, Trump suggested he found it online: “You can check out the internet. You’ll see. Plenty of people say it.”The president’s comments build on millions of dollars of television and digital ads – some dishonestly edited to make Biden seem incoherent or doctored to make him look infirm – that the Trump campaign has purchased over a period of months, making it one of the leading lines of attack against his opponent.All of that, said Trump critic and longtime GOP consultant Rick Wilson, will be wasted if Biden shows on the debate stage that he can string even a few words together.“If your campaign has spent millions of dollars and done dozens of tweets, Facebook posts and earned media statements saying that Joe Biden is senile, and he walks on stage and doesn’t drool on himself, you look like a damned fool,” said Wilson, who now helps run the anti-Trump Lincoln Project.How Tuesday night plays out could have an enormous role in the outcome on November 3, if the debates in the two most recent elections that ended with the loss of an incumbent president are a guide.In 1980, Democratic president Jimmy Carter was in a tight race again Ronald Reagan heading into their one and only debate. Carter had spent much of the year portraying the former California governor as a trigger-happy warmonger.“Reagan came off as statesmanlike, not a right-wing radical,” said Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley. “Reagan had to show that he could be calm, warm, tough but not be an extremist.”With most of the country unhappy with Carter, Reagan wound up winning in a landslide. “Reagan allowed people to imagine him as a sane alternative to Jimmy Carter,” Brinkley said.Twelve years later, Republican George H W Bush faced a similarly unhappy electorate, and this time Democrat Bill Clinton was able to use the trio of debates to make himself an acceptable alternative. “Those debates were extraordinarily helpful to Bill Clinton,” Brinkley said. “Clinton sold the argument that he could empathise with people’s problems.”Trump debated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton three times in 2016. She demonstrated at each encounter that she had a superior grasp of the facts and could lay them out more logically and coherently. Trump, nevertheless, won the election, and Brinkley said he cannot imagine Trump will back away from his scorched-earth tactic of attacking and belittling his opponent.That approach, though, does offer Biden an opportunity to turn the tables and dress Trump down with pointed finger and outrage over Trump’s performance in office.“Trump’s bully boy routine we see every day at press conferences,” Brinkley said. “But people could be looking at Biden school Trump on foreign and domestic policy.”Trump has attacked Biden’s abilities despite questions about his own mental and physical condition. The president has, on several occasions, confused his father and his grandfather. He called Apple CEO “Tim Apple” instead of Tim Cook, and then later claimed he was using shorthand. He had trouble coming up with the word “origins” and continually pronounced it “oranges”. At a West Point graduation ceremony in June, he had difficulty walking down a ramp and needed two hands to drink from a glass of water.And at the Latrobe rally, Trump on two occasions started to poll members of the crowd on their preferences – the first on which insulting nickname they preferred for Biden; the second on whether they liked “Keep America Great” or “Make America Great Again” as the campaign slogan. But he seemed to lose his place each time and never did poll the audience.Further, Trump’s White House has never given a full explanation for the president’s sudden, unplanned trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on a Saturday last November. Trump subsequently has claimed it was both to start a physical and also to complete a physical – but the circumstances of the trip do not match any other he has made to the hospital.Apparently sensitive to the questions about his health, Trump has taken to spending portions of interviews and speeches bragging about it. He showed off his ability to drink from a glass with just one hand at his lightly attended June rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and spent long minutes in a Fox News interview in July explaining how well he did on a dementia screening test he took in early 2018.“The first questions are very easy. The last questions are much more difficult, like a memory question. It’s, like, you’ll go: ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’ So they’ll say, ‘Could you repeat that?’ So I said: ‘Yeah. So it’s: Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,’” he said. “If you get it in order, you get extra points.”Related...

Sacha Baron Cohen Filmed Borat 2 When No One Was Paying Attention
It’s no joke: A Borat sequel may soon be on the way.Sacha Baron Cohen somehow managed to film a sequel to his 2006 comedy during the pandemic and he’s currently screen testing the film, according to Collider.The plot for the new film is still a secret, according to IGN, who noted that the title reportedly submitted to the Writer’s Guild of America website (and since removed) doesn’t provide many clues: Borat: Gift Of Pornographic Monkey To Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence To Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation Of Kazakhstan.Sources who’ve seen test screenings of the film told The Film Stage that the relationship between President Donald Trump and financier Jeffrey Epstein and the coronavirus play a big part in the film.Many famous figures, including Vice President Mike Pence and Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, reportedly have cameos, but the website says one as-yet-unrevealed scene could derail the career of a well-known political figure. Earlier this summer, Giuliani told reporters about his encounter with the actor.Back in July, Giuliani was participating in what he believed to be a sit-down interview about the White House response to the pandemic when a man came in wearing a pink bikini with lace underneath a translucent mesh top.The former New York City mayor told Page Six that the man “had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive”.Giuliani, who said he was a Borat fan, said he didn’t immediately recognise the “screaming and yelling” actor, and “thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police”.The actor then ran away, according to the mayor.No release date for the film has been announced, but Collider speculated that it might have been financed by “a deep-pocketed streamer”.MORE FILM: Chadwick Boseman Took Pay Cut To Give Sienna Miller Salary She 'Deserved' Captain Sir Tom Moore's Life Story Is Now Heading For The Big Screen Those Tom Hardy James Bond Rumours Have Just Seriously Heated Up

Rebekah Vardy Determined To 'Clear Her Name' After Coleen Rooney 'WAGAtha Christie' Row
Rebekah Vardy has said she is determined to “clear her name” amid her ongoing legal battle with fellow WAG Coleen Rooney.Last year, Rebekah inadvertently made headlines across the globe when Coleen claimed her Instagram account was the source of fake stories appearing in The Sun newspaper. The former I’m A Celebrity star has always vehemently denied the accusations – in what became dubbed the “WAGatha Christie” row.Earlier this year, Rebekah began a libel lawsuit against Coleen over the matter, which she discussed during an appearance on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, where she was also unveiled as the latest celebrity competing on next year’s Dancing On Ice.Although she said she couldn’t say much for legal reasons, Rebekah told Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan: “Look, we tried to sort things out amicably, it just didn’t work. I understand people think it’s ridiculous, but what was I meant to do? I need to clear my name. I want to clear my name.“I will do whatever that takes. I hope it’s going to be resolved soon. It’s just one of the things that has to go through the process unfortunately now.”Rebekah quickly added: “I found it really tough – but to be fair, Piers, in comparison to what some people have gone through with Covid and things like that, it’s incomparable.”Coleen recently said she found the lawsuit “disappointing”, suggesting the money involved could have been put to better use in a pandemic. Discussing her upcoming appearance on Dancing On Ice, which will begin airing in January 2021, Rebekah added: “My dad taught me how to stand up on a pair of skates when I was about seven years old, we used to go skating a lot when my mum and dad split up, we would go with him to the local ice rink.“I’m really excited actually. The only time I’ve been ice skating since is when we take our kids to the rink.”She also said that husband Jamie felt her appearance on the show was a “brilliant idea”, adding: “He is really looking forward to watching me and he hopes I don’t fall over too much. I hope I don’t fall over too much.”Check out the rest of the celebrities confirmed for next year’s Dancing On Ice so far here.Good Morning Britain airs every weekday from 6am on ITV.READ MORE: Coleen Rooney Brands Rebekah Vardy Lawsuit 'Disappointing', Saying Money 'Could Be Put To Better Use' Rebekah Vardy Tearfully Claims Stress Caused By Coleen Rooney Drama Landed Her In Hospital Three Times Rebekah Vardy ‘Feels Sorry’ For Coleen Rooney, Claims She Has Yet To Provide ‘Proof’ Her Instagram Is Behind Leaks
