  • How a US coffee shop sparked a diplomatic standoff between China and Taiwan

    Golocal247.com news

    A bakery in California has found itself at the centre of an international storm after it welcomed the president of Taiwan with a cup of coffee and a goody bag. The result was a major diplomatic incident as Chinese customers launched a boycott of the 85C Bakery Cafe, which rapidly disappeared from online ordering platforms on the Chinese mainland.  The episode highlight's Beijing's sensitivity over an island that considers itself a sovereign state, but has never declared formal independence.  The Taiwanese-owned chain apologised and distanced itself from the views of Tsai Ing-wen, the pro-independence leader of the island, after she dropped in on Wednesday en route to visiting allies in South America.  Excited staff gave her a gift bag and took selfies, as images were uploaded to Facebook by part of her delegation. A woman looks at her mobile phone at a 85C Bakery Cafe in Hangzhou in China's eastern Zhejiang province Credit: AFP They have since been removed but it was too late to prevent the diplomatic fallout. Beijing - which has been working to isolate countries that recognise Taiwan - warned it would oppose any businesses that support Taiwanese independence. A company official in Taipei, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that it had been removed from several online platforms, telling the AFP news agency: "We have noticed the situation and we hope it won't be permanent." 85C began in Taiwan but has since expanded to earn more than 60 percent of its revenue in China. Losing its presence on food delivery apps would be devastating. At a glance | The One China policy China views the island as part of its own territory, and has escalated a campaign to isolate Taiwan internationally since Ms Tsai came to power in 2016. A growing number of international companies including airlines and hotels have been bending to pressure from Beijing to refer to Taiwan as part of China. The election of Donald Trump has added to Chinese unease as he showed little regard for the fine lines and grey areas of the "one China policy". Taiwan's state-aligned Central News Agency on Thursday quoted a top official with China's Taiwan Affairs Office, Long Mingbiao, as saying in Beijing that any company that expects to invest and "make money" in China must adhere to its policies. 85C's problems began after Tsai stopped off at a Los Angeles branch of the cafe this week during an American visit in which she became the first Taiwanese leader in 15 years to give a public speech on American soil, something Beijing staunchly opposes. Internet users in China lashed out with boycott threats and calls for the coffee chain to quit the Chinese market.

  • Deadly, 40,000-foot fire tornado revealed in new videos

    Golocal247.com news

    Harrowing new footage released by California's firefighting agency Cal Fire reveals the massive fire tornado that led to the death of a firefighter on July 26. The fire tornado was part of the Carr Fire that's engulfed 223,610 acres of land in Northern California so far. A report from Cal Fire breaks down the details surrounding the fiery phenomenon. SEE ALSO: A fire tornado hit California. Here's how it happened. Per the report, the tornado "was a large rotating fire plume that was roughly 1,000 feet in diameter at its base" and managed to reach a height of 40,000 feet.  In late July, we covered news of a fire tornado in the area on the evening of July 26. It's unclear whether the fire tornado in the report is the same as the one that garnered media attention at the time, according to Cal Fire.  "Observations from witnesses and other evidence suggest that either several fire tornados occurred at different locations and times, or one fire tornado formed and then periodically weakened and strengthened causing several separate damage areas," the report says. Fire tornados can happen when extreme heat spins up from the ground. As Mashable's Mark Kaufman explained at the time: Firefighters captured the disturbing video above from a helicopter, as well as footage taken from a fire engine, and from the Keswick Dam on the Sacramento River.  The Carr Fire continues to ravage parts of Shasta County and Trinity County. It is 77 percent contained, and other fires continue to rage in Northern California and other areas These fires are spurred on by extreme heat and dryness in the region. While human-caused climate change isn't necessarily the direct cause of any single weather event, like these fires, it can make extreme weather more likely now and in the future.

    The 3M Co. has agreed to pay $9.1 million to settle allegations it knowingly sold defective combat ear plugs to the U.S. military without disclosing defects that limited the effectiveness of the hearing protection devices, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday. A settlement frees 3M from the inconvenience of a long investigation and litigation, it said. The 3M payment settles allegations that 3M and its predecessor, Aearo Technologies Inc., knew the ear plugs it sold the military were too short for proper insertion into the users' ears and could loosen and not perform effectively in some people, the Justice Department said.

  • The Royal Family are 'like Scientologists' because of their 'cult-like secrecy' says Thomas Markle

    Golocal247.com news

    Thomas Markle, father of the Duchess of Sussex, has claimed that the Royal Family are like Scientologists because of their secrecy. The 74-year-old, who has never met Prince Harry, also said the Royals are "cult-like" and may have secret handshakes. Mr Markle, who did not attend the wedding of his daughter after the furore caused by staging  paparazzi  photos, has previously said that during a phone call with Prince Harry, he hung up the phone and told the Duke of Sussex: "Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead... then you could pretend to be sad." Speaking to the Sun, from his home in Rosarito, Mexico, Mr Markle said: “They are either like Scientologists or the Stepford family. "If they hear anybody say anything they just lock the doors. They need to speak up! “They are cult-like — like Scientology — because they are secretive. Thomas Markle Snr and his daughter Meghan Markle, in pictures "They close the door, pull the shades down and put their fingers in their ears so they don’t have to hear. “Maybe they have a secret handshake too! You cannot ask a question of them — as they won’t answer.” The former award-winning lighting director has previously said that he has been met with a wall of silence by Buckingham Palace, and reportedly last spoke with his daughter the day after her wedding. The Church of Scientology is controversial for its secretive practices and claims of brainwashing its members, which the church denies. Celebrity followers include Tom Cruise, who has donated heavily to the Church set up by American author Ron Hubbard in 1952. On  May 19 this year, at St George's chapel, Windsor Castle, Meghan Markle arrived for her wedding with her mother Doria Ragland, who divorced Thomas Markle in 1988. Both Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace declined to comment on Mr Markle's claims.

Ties between the two countries have been strained since Russia's annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2014. "That’s why it is necessary to take measures against possible non-competitive and illegal attacks from the third countries in order to complete this project eventually," he told reporters shortly before Putin flew back to Russia. At the start of the talks, Merkel underscored her expectation that Ukraine should continue to have a role in gas transit to Europe, and welcomed the start of discussions among the European Union, Ukraine and Russia on that issue.

  • New panda mom doesn't know she has twins thanks to these sneaky zookeepers

    Golocal247.com news

    Crafty zookeepers are keeping a set of newborn panda twins alive by switching them out every day.  Although twins aren't uncommon, when pandas have multiple babies they tend to devote all of their attention to only one of their cubs, leaving the other to starve.  SEE ALSO: Someone tried to smuggle a snake onto a plane by hiding it in a hard drive But these zookeepers have managed to get new panda moms to care for both babies by rotating them out, tricking the pandas into believing they only have one cub to care for. A BBC Earth video — narrated by the one and only David Attenborough — shows the keepers' technique.  New mother Lee Lee hasn't realized that she had twins because her keepers have been switching her 18-day-old cubs out, so she only has one at a time.  When they need to change out the cubs, they distract Lee Lee with a bowl of honey water and worm the young cub from her paws. Then, they put that cub in an incubator and bring the other cub to Lee Lee, ensuring that both get the maternal care they need.  Keepers swap the cubs out at least 10 times a day, keeping a meticulous record of the babies' time with their mom.  The technique has an almost 100 percent survival rate. Although pandas are no longer endangered, they are still vulnerable, so finding new ways to help the species along, even in captivity, is important. Plus, it's freaking adorable.
