China's Uighur policy is human rights 'stain of the century' – Pompeo

US secretary of state says mass detentions of Muslim minority is among ‘worst crises of our time’

The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has accused China of being responsible for the human rights “stain of the century” with mass detentions of Muslims and other minorities.

Speaking at an international religious freedom conference that he is hosting in Washington, Pompeo denounced China for its large-scale detentions in the western Xinjiang region, where an estimated 1 million Muslim Uighurs, Kazakhs and other minorities are believed to be held in internment camps.

Bugs in Qualcomm chips leaked private data from Samsung and LG phones
Researchers have disclosed a set of vulnerabilites affecting Qualcomm chipsets that could allow a potential attacker to steal critical information. The findings — published by cybersecurity vendor Check Point Research — reveal the ‘secure world’ present in Qualcomm CPUs, that powers most Android phones, suffer from a flaw which may “lead to leakage of protected data, device rooting, bootloader unlocking, and execution of undetectable APTs [Advanced Persistent Threats].” The findings were originally revealed by Checkpoint at REcon Montreal earlier this June, a computer security conference with a focus on reverse engineering and advanced exploitation techniques.

The UK Labour party wants to tax Amazon, Facebook and Google to fund a $25 billion plan for free, high-speed internet for the whole country
Simon Dawson / Reuters UK Labour proposed a new tax on tech giants including Amazon and Google which would allow for free, high-speed internet for the whole country.  The party floated plans on Thursday to buy up most of the UK's existing internet infrastructures for an estimated cost of £20 billion (around $25 billion), which it pledged to massively expand.  Amazon, Facebook and Google were named as companies that would be hit with new taxes to help pay for the scheme.  Labour said it would reform the system to tax large tech companies on their global profits rather than those registered in the UK. The plan is one of several proposals to nationalize private industries in the UK, which Labour hopes will help them win power in the upcoming general election against the incumbent Conservative party.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.  Britain's Labour party threatened billions of dollars in new taxes on large tech companies to fund the nationalization and expansion of the country's internet infrastructure if it wins the forthcoming general election. The party floated plans Thursday night to spend a total of £20 billion (around $25 billion) to buy up most of the UK's existing internet infrastructure, which it pledged to then massively expand.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: People are still debating the pink or grey sneaker, 2 years after it went viral.

Quevos are the best keto chips I've found
I've lost weight with keto—the only thing that's worked for me—but face two ongoing problems. First, I get bored of eating fat and leaves. Second, keto clones of normal snacks tend to be weird, mealy or downright unpleasant to taste. Quevos [Amazon link] are the first keto chips I can just sit and eat and eat and eat until I realize I've gone though three packets. My toddler steals them, too, so it's not just the carb-starved incentives of a keto dieter making me like them. They're made from egg whites, and come in two flavors: Sour Cream and Onion and Quevos Rancheros. There's 120 or 140 calories a bag and 2 or 3 net carbs (full nutritional info is at the website). There are other non-keto flavors (salt and pepper, sweet barbecue and cheddar) with 10 or 11 carbs a bag. They work, I think, because they're honest to what they are, which is baked egg chips, and aren't trying too hard to taste like potato chips. They flavors are unusual as well, suggesting a lot of experimentation. What is "Rancheros" flavor, exactly? The taste of tests. They're not perfect. The mouthfeel is dry and dusty, and you're getting a full load of sodium. The Quevos are small, probably because they're brittle and would arrive in fragments were they any larger. The latter point is a reviewer in search of a quibble, perhaps, so I'd like to stress that these are the first keto snacks I've tried that didn't taste like "keto snacks" and a must-try for people managing carbs.

Human-like monkeys, jumping bunnies, and teeth-baring lions all feature in this year's most striking nature photos
Tom Svensson / NPOTY 2019 A photo of strikingly human-like chimpanzees is among the most stunning images from this year's Nature Photographer of the Year competition. The annual competition is presented by Dutch organization Nature Talks, and highlights the beauty of the natural world and the importance of conservation. Judges received more than 14,000 entries this year. The overall winner was Csaba Daróczi of Hungary, who snapped a picture of a pair of rabbits. Entries for next year's competition open December 1. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.  Most of us have heard how similar to humans chimpanzees can act — but it's another thing to see it. A photo of chimps reaching out to the camera for help has been judged as one of the most striking nature photos of the year, according to the Nature Photographer of the Year 2019 competition. Presented by Dutch organization Nature Talks, the competition showcases the beauty of the natural world and the importance of conservation. Seven judges sifted through about 14,000 images (a new record for the competition) from photographers in 73 different countries to award prizes across 11 categories.  The Nature Photographer of the Year prize went to Csaba Daróczi of Hungary, who snapped a perfectly-timed (and illuminated) shot of a pair of rabbits leaping high into the air. "This photo is proof of the fact that you don't have to get extremely rare or extraordinary species in front of your camera to be able to create a great nature photo," said Keith Wilson, chair of the jury. "If you have a vision and a creative mind you can create a great shot close to home." Here are a few of the best shots from the competition.Nature Photographer of the Year and Black and White category winner: 'Jump' by Csaba Daroczi Csaba Daroczi / NPOTY 2019 Youth category winner: 'Symphony no 5' by Giacomo Redaelli Giacomo Redaelli / NPOTY 2019 Black and White category runner up: 'Exchange wild' by Alain Ernoult Alain Ernoult / NPOTY 2019 See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:I lived at the top of the second-tallest apartment building in the world for less than $1,400 a month, and I felt like royalty11 slang words from the last decade that we loveA model didn't realize she was pregnant until she was giving birth, but 'cryptic pregnancies' happen more often than you might think

Donald Trump Jr's new book may only be the No. 1 New York Times bestseller because of bulk orders linked to the Republican Party
Willy Kurniawan/Reuters Donald Trump Jr's book "Triggered" topped the New York Times bestseller list, but a small dagger symbol next to the listing raised suspicions that it may be top of the pile because of bulk orders. The dagger symbol— (†)— is used to indicate when a title is linked to: "Institutional, special interest, group or bulk purchases," according to the New York Times.  A tweet posted on November 5 shows an email from Trump Jr. in which signed copies of "Triggered" were offered by the Republican National Committee to anyone making a donation of $50 or more. US President Donald Trump expressed his pride in his son's bestseller status in a tweet on Thursday,  but was previously criticized for using his platform to promote the book. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.  Donald Trump Jr's new book "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence US" is No.1 on the New York Times bestseller list, but it may be down to bulk buying linked to the Republican party.  Referred to in short as "Triggered," the book came out last week and is marketed as part memoir of Trump Jr's life, part "exposé " on the "tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and pus hem out of the public square," according to the book's Amazon listing. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Extremists turned a frog meme into a hate symbol, but Hong Kong protesters revived it as an emblem of hopeSee Also:Erdogan reportedly played Trump an iPad video in the Oval Office to turn him against the Kurds, but the plan fell flatTurkey's president gave Trump back a wild, threatening letter warning him against being 'a fool' and 'the devil' in SyriaThe EPA is reportedly planning to restrict the science experts can use to draw up rules to protect public health

Anne Applebaum Joins The Atlantic as Staff Writer
Anne Applebaum, The Washington Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, is joining The Atlantic as a staff writer. Applebaum will write on national politics and foreign policy, with a particular focus on Europe, for both The Atlantic’s site and the magazine. She begins with The Atlantic in January, and joins as the publication continues to expand its reporting and readership.Announcing Applebaum’s hire, editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg wrote: “Anne is one of the great talents of our age; she is one of the world’s leading experts on, among other things, pre- and post-Communist Europe; disinformation and propaganda; and the future of democracy. The addition of her writing to The Atlantic will strengthen us enormously.”Applebaum wrote a 2018 feature for The Atlantic, “Europe: A Warning,” that anchored its special issue on democracy and was named a finalist for the National Magazine Award. She is currently at work on a book-length version expanding on that piece of reporting.Applebaum comes to The Atlantic after spending 17 years as a columnist at The Washington Post, and throughout those years authored four books covering European history and geopolitics, including “Gulag: A History,” which was awarded the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction. Two of her books, “Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine,” and “Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe,” were nominated for the National Book Award, and she is the recipient of the 2013 Cundill History Prize and the 2018 Lionel Gelber Prize.She is also Professor of Practice at the London School of Economics, where she runs ARENA, a research project on disinformation and propaganda, and is a senior fellow at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins.

He joined the BBC in 1968 and as a director and producer during the next 22 years made more than 100 documentaries on art and culture.He had started his career working in the BBC’s current affairs division with James Mossman, the star reporter of Panorama, but when Jim became disenchanted with the sight of Robin Day in his bow tie, Peter followed him to the music and arts department, producing first for Review, the weekly arts magazine programme. At music and arts, Peter walked the corridors of Kensington House in his bottle-green three-piece suits, flamboyant ties and general air of having just stepped off the catwalk of a fashion parade: this endeared him to just about everybody he met.
