Turkey doesnt want to hold onto foreign ISIS fighters but neither does the rest of the world. So where will they go?
Screen grab President Donald Trump made the abrupt decision to pull the remaining US troops out of Kurdish-controlled areas in Syria last month, setting in motion a regional domino effect. One consequence is that Turkey took over swathes of formerly Kurdish territory — and in the process inherited many ISIS prisoners being held there. It now has to deal with what is says are around 1,200 foreign fighters. It warned Turkey would not become "a hotel" for militants.  However, countries like the United Kingdom, France, and Germany — from which many ISIS fighters came — have stalled or outright refused to take their nationals back.  Here's what's going on with foreign ISIS fighters in Syria and what may happen next.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Last month, US President Donald Trump made the abrupt decision to pull the remaining US troops out of Kurdish-controlled areas in Syria. The move sent the fragmented country into a spiral, disrupting one of its few areas of stability. By withdrawing support from Kurdish forces in the area — which had helped the US combat ISIS — Trump opened them up to an oncoming offensive by Turkey.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: We can thank the US military for the smelliest weapon in the worldSee Also:A federal judge ruled that New Jersey-born, ISIS-bride Hoda Muthana is not a US citizenVeterans who served alongside the Kurds say Trump set a dangerous precedent abandoning American alliesTrump keeps contradicting the Pentagon about whatever it is the US is doing with Syria's oilSEE ALSO: What's happening in Syria, explained in 30 seconds

Chekhov and Georgia O'Keeffe loved autumn leaves, and so do I | Hannah Jane Parkinson
Their colour provides solace as we struggle to adjust from summer to darker nights and rainThe colours of autumn are abundant: the cool blue of the sky, the silver frost on the grass, the fuchsia of an early sunset. But the true riches are the leaves. The deep reds; the fierce oranges. The ochre of those curled at the edges. The shrivelled ones; the pale yellow of fading bruises. The combination of these colours against those crisp skies is majestic.While the adjustment from summer to autumn can be tough – the reacquaintance with relentless rain and walking home from work in darkness – the colours are a solace. Walking around parks in October conjures Vincent Van Gogh’s Autumn Landscape With Four Trees (1885); the sienna, veiny delights of Georgia O’Keeffe’s Autumn Leaves (1924); Gustav Klimt’s Birch Forest I (1902). But best of all, David Hockney’s huge studies of Woldgate Woods (2006). Continue reading...

Marriage Story review – everything you always wanted to know about divorce | Peter Bradshaw's film of the week
Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson are terrific as a couple facing the awful aftermath of their relationship in Noah Baumbach’s heartfelt dramaAll marriages are a mystery to outsiders, they say, and even more so to the married people themselves. In 2013, writer-director Noah Baumbach got divorced from screen star Jennifer Jason Leigh, and, until Leigh presents us with her own fictionalised movie version of their breakup (and who knows if she hasn’t considered it, or is considering it), we won’t have anything approaching the complete creative picture. Until then, here is Baumbach’s superb Marriage Story, a glorious laugh-out-loud, cry-out-loud portrait of a relationship in its death throes.This wonderfully sweet, sad and funny film simply delivers more moment-by-moment pleasure than anything else around. It would be reductive to call it autobiographical, but it is notable how scrupulously generous his movie is to the soon-to-be-ex-wife figure, played impeccably by Scarlett Johansson. It is adroitly balanced and emotionally calibrated, although there are incidental details about who is the first to lawyer up, and a 55/45% split in the child custody arrangement. I wonder what Leigh makes of these points. Continue reading...

A federal judge ruled that New Jersey-born, ISIS-bride Hoda Muthana is not a US citizen
ABC News A federal judge on Thursday ruled that Hoda Muthana, a 25-year-old woman born in New Jersey who joined ISIS in 2014, is not a US citizen.  Hoda Muthana is currently staying in a refugee camp in Syria with her young son. Her family sued the US government in order to have Muthana and her son recognized as US citizens so they could return home.  On Thursday, the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that there was sufficient evidence to indicate that Muthana was born while her father held diplomatic status in the US.  The Department of Justice has said that because Muthana's father, a former Yemeni diplomat, was under diplomatic protection at the time of her birth, she did not obtain US citizenship by birth.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. A federal judge on Thursday ruled that Hoda Muthana, a 25-year-old woman born in New Jersey who joined ISIS in 2014, is not a US citizen.  Judge Reggie B.

Stephen Colbert roasts Republicans' claim the impeachment hearings are 'boring'
After the first televised impeachment hearings into Donald Trump and Ukraine on Wednesday, some people came away from watching highly respected U.S. officials add more damning evidence to an already-teetering pile wondering why they didn't get a bit more of the ol' razzle dazzle. Republicans' new line, after weeks of demanding public hearings, switched to a puerile cry of "Boringgggg!" with Kellyanne Conway saying it was "just a bunch of gossip girls." As Stephen Colbert noted in his monologue Wednesday night, Gossip Girl was a very successful show, even if the ending left something to be desired. (Also, 13 million people watched the hearings; only 11 million watched the CMAs that same night.)

I’m With the Band: Nasty Cherry review – move over Simon Cowell, here's Charli XCX!
Netflix’s new reality show follows a girl group primed for stardom by the pop rebel – and you will be hopelessly sucked in by their spectacular tiffsHistorically, girl bands have been put together and managed by middle-aged men, often resulting in the gruesome situation of young women being told what to do, say and wear by those men in order to make the men as much money as possible. As much as I’m With the Band: Nasty Cherry (Netflix) is a fairly standard X Factor setup – a mentor develops a fledgling act, drawing on their own industry experience – it does, at least, offer a glimmer of a fresh take. The six-part show follows the progress of “alt-pop” group Nasty Cherry, who have been flung together by Charli XCX and her best friend and the band’s manager, Emmie Lichtenberg, from when they move into a house together to when they play their first live show, four months later.The aesthetic is a riotous clash of Big Brother meets Drag Race meets Spice World, yet the mood is peculiarly mumblecore. Each episode is about 10 minutes too long, because there is so much lingering on the day-to-day business of the women simply existing. Charli loves eating in bed and has a wedgie. Debbie the drummer can’t open bottles. It becomes her thing, her USP: at one point, she hides from the cameras, laughing, because she doesn’t want her inability to open a wine bottle shown on television. This is an era in which everything from breakfast to sunset is broadcast for an audience: perhaps this is the content we deserve. Continue reading...

Dollface review – slick but skin-deep female friendship comedy
A new sitcom about re-entering the world of female friendship after a long relationship has some strong ideas, but is limited in heartThe breakup underlying Dollface, a new half-hour comedy from Hulu, seems implausibly cold and abrupt. One minute, Jules (Kat Dennings, now free of Two Broke Girls) is having lunch with her boyfriend; the next, despite the fact that, as she says, they’ve spent every day for the past half-decade together, he doesn’t love her any more. Then again, very little of Dollface at the outset makes sense; Jules is promptly picked up by a bus driver with the head of a cat and, in a dream sequence that regenerates each episode, the crazy cat lady visualizes Jules’s journey back to singledom as a literal bus ride through Rebound Town. The trip passes a crowd of “guy’s gals” clad in desperate palatability and football jerseys, who cry not unfounded yet well-trodden refrains like “I’m not like other girls, I love video games!” and “Anyone want wings? Anyone?” Related: Dickinson review – Emily Dickinson reborn as a Lizzo-loving feminist Continue reading...
