  • Scientists say snake was some Cretaceous crawler: earliest ever baby snake fossil found in Myanmar

    A team of researchers from [[China]], [[Canada]], the [[United States]], and [[Australia]] published on Wednesday their discovery of an early fossilized baby snake, reportedly the oldest ever found, in a piece of amber in the middle of a {{w|sandstone}} deposit in [[Myanmar]]. The findings appeared in the journal {{w|Science Advances|''Science Advances''}}.

    The specimen, a piece of amber, was found in a sandstone deposit by fossil hunters who contacted scientists in 2016, and later donated it to the {{w|Dexu Institute of Paleontology}} in {{w|Chaozhou}}, China, where scientists were able to examine it closely. The snake skeleton itself, though missing a head, is about 1.9 inches long (47.5 mm<!--Actual study-->). The scientists said a scrap of skin also found suggests another snake, and bits of plant and insect matter indicate the area may have been forest at the time the snake was preserved. They dated the fossil to the {{w|Cretaceous period}}, roughly 99 million years ago, the same period as ''Tyrannosaurus rex'', ''Triceratops'', and early mammals, sharks, and flowering plants<!--National Geographic-->. The specimen represents a previous undiscovered species, which the scientists named ''Xiaophis myanmarensis'', or "dawn-snake of Myanmar."

    Co-author Michael Caldwell of the {{w|University of Alberta}} noted, "It's spectacular to have a baby snake in the fossil record because, of course, they'd be such tiny, delicate things." The researchers concluded it was in fact a snake and not a mere legless lizard by studying the vertebrae, which were found with their ribs intact, in each part of the snake's body.

    The findings, said scientists, indicate fauna from the prehistoric megacontinent {{w|Gondwanaland}} migrated to {{w|Laurasia}}. This is also the earliest snake to be found in a forest environment, suggesting that snakes had become reasonably biodiverse by the Cretaceous.<!--Actual study-->

  • This whale can fly! Airbus Beluga XL makes maiden flight

    Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review


    {{tasks|news|npov|re-review}}{{Aviation}}
    {{date|July 20, 2018}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    On Thursday<!--July 19-->, after five years of development, the [[Airbus]] {{w|Airbus Beluga XL|Beluga XL}}, painted with eyes and a smile to match its cetacean namesake, made its maiden flight, taking off from and landing at {{w|Toulouse}}, [[France]], in front of a crowd of 10,000. The craft is expected to enter service next year.

    Airbus plans to use the Beluga XL to shuttle airplane parts among its facilities in France and [[Germany]]. The XL has roughly 30% more cargo space than existing Beluga planes, and it can carry over 50 tons 2500 miles (4000 km) without refueling<!--In an aeronautical context, that is what "range" means-->. It can carry two wings for the Airbus 350 plane in one trip, while the standard Beluga, which entered service in 1995<!--Popular Mechanics-->, can carry only one. The Beluga XL is propelled by two {{w|Rolls-Royce}} Trent 700 Turbofan engines.

    The plane is named for its resemblance to a {{w|Beluga whale}}. The front of the fuselage hinges upward to allow front-loading into the cargo space, creating the illusion of a round forehead. This feature was added by slinging the cockpit lower in the plane's body, so cargo is passed over the pilots' perch.

    The Beluga joins such cargo planes as the {{w|Antonov An-225 Mriya}} was designed by the [[Soviet Union|Soviet]] space program to carry spacecraft parts, and has a lifting capacity over five times that of the Beluga, but only one was ever built. Other massive planes include [[NASA]]'s {{w|Aero Spacelines Super Guppy|Super Guppy}}, which is also used to carry spacecraft parts, and the [[United States]] military's {{w|Lockheed C-5 Galaxy}}.<!--Popular Mechanics-->

  • Eritrea reopens embassy in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa

    Acagastya: /* Sources */ category


    {{date|July 19, 2018}}{{Politics and conflicts}}
    On Monday, [[Eritrea]] reopened their embassy in the [[Ethiopia]]n capital [[Addis Ababa]] just a week after both the countries signed a declaration of the end of the two-decade-long conflict between the countries.

    71-year-old Eritrean President {{w|Isaias Afwerki}} raised the Eritrean flag in Addis Ababa and Ethiopian prime minister {{w|Abiy Ahmed}} handed Afwerki the keys for the embassy. Abiy said, "Both nations have chosen peace as opposed to war [...] We won't allow anyone to stop this from happening."

    A former province of Ethiopia, Eritrea voted in favour of a sovereign state and declared independence in 1993. The Eritrean embassy in Ethiopia was shut down in 1998 and, per reports, about 80 thousand were killed in the border conflict between the two nations from 1998 to 2000.

    The Ethiopian Prime Minister visited Eritrea earlier this month and on July 9, leaders of both countries signed a declaration of the end of the conflict in Eritrean capital {{W|Asmara}}. After announcing the end of the conflict, telephone lines were set up between the two countries and on Wednesday, {{w|Ethiopian Airlines}} flew the first direct plane between Ethiopia and Eritrea in twenty years. Chief Executive of the airlines Tewolde GebreMariam said, "This day marks a unique event in the history of Ethiopia and Eritrea".

  • Israeli Knesset passes 'Jewish nation-state' bill

    Pi zero: typo


    {{date|July 22, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Thursday, the [[Israel]]i parliament, the [[Knesset]], passed the "[[Jewish]] nation-state" bill granting Israel the status of "national home of the Jewish people". Israeli Prime Minister [[Benjamin Netanyahu]] called it "a defining moment in the annals of {{wikt|Zionism}} and the history of the state of Israel".

    The bill was passed at 3 AM with 62&ndash;55 majority. Two lawmakers abstained. The bill declared {{w|Hebrew}} as the only official language and demoted {{w|Arabic}} from national language to a "special status" language. Netanyahu said, "An absolute majority wants to ensure our state's Jewish characters for generations to come." Speaker of the Knesset {{w|Yuli Edelstein}} said this bill, which received just 51.66% votes in favour out of the full Knesset of 120, was "one of the most important laws ever to be passed by the Knesset".

    The Knesset began the voting on Wednesday. Previously, the bill had clauses declaring the state as a Jewish-only community as well as direction for judiciary courts to consider Jewish values over democratic values. Both of the clauses were challenged by the Israeli President {{w|Reuven Rivlin}} and the Attorney General. The latter clause about Jewish values for courts was dropped in May; the other clause was eventually dropped, and the final draft of the bill was approved on Monday. The bill was first introduced in 2011 by the right-wing [[Likud]] party.

    The lasted draft of the bill said the {{w|Hebrew calendar}} is to be the official calendar of the state. It also read, "Israel is the historical homeland of the Jewish people, in which the State of Israel was established" and "the state views the development of Jewish settlement as a national value and will act to encourage and promote its establishment and consolidation." Israel is home to about 1.8 million {{w|Palestinians}}, who account for roughly 20% of the national population. The bill also declared [[Jerusalem]], in its entirety, as the capital of Israel.

    The bill received negative reception from a number of people. The Arab {{w|Joint List}} multi-party alliance called it "anti-democratic, colonialist, racist, and with clear characteristics of apartheid." Calling it a "shameful night", {{w|Meretz}} Party's {{w|Tamar Zandberg}} said it was a "debased and tainted law". The Joint List's {{w|Ahmad Tibi}} questioned, "Why are you afraid of the Arabic language?".

    Last week, Netanyahu said, "We will keep ensuring civil rights in Israel's democracy but the majority also has the rights and the majority decides". {{w|Jeremy Ben-Ami}}, the president of {{w|J Street}}, a [[US]]-based Jewish Organisation, said the bill "was born in sin, its only purpose is to send a message to the Arab community, the [[LGBT]] community and other minorities in Israel, that they are not and never will be equal citizens. Two months ago we celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Israeli Declaration of Independence, where it was written that the State of Israel 'will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or gender.' Today Netanyahu's government is trying to ignore those words and the values that they represent."

  • Indian Supreme Court declares barring women of certain age group from entering Sabarimala temple as unconstitutional

    Pi zero: /* Sources */


    {{date|July 18, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Wednesday, the [[India]]n {{w|Supreme COurt of India|Supreme Court}} declared that preventing women of age 10&ndash;50 from entering the {{w|Sabarimala Temple}} in [[Kerala]] was "arbitrary" and unconstitutional.

    The Supreme Court began on Tuesday the hearing for the {{w|Public interest litigation in India|public interest litigation}} filed by petitioners including the Indian Young Lawyers Association. A panel of five judges &mdash; Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice RF Nariman, Justice AM Khanwilkar, Justice Indu Malhotra, and the {{w|Chief Justice of India}} {{w|Dipak Misra}} &mdash; heard the case of traditional prohibition of the entry to the temple based on a woman's age.

    For centuries, women within the age range when females generally have monthly menstrual cycles were prevented from entering the {{w|Ayyappan|Lord Ayyappan}}'s temple. Ayyappan was considered celibate. Earlier this year, the Travancore Devaswom Board made it compulsory for women to produce an age proof in order to enter the temple. Ravi Prakash Gupta, one of the representatives of the petitioners, said, "Mere sight of a woman does not affect anyone's celibacy if one has take[n] the oath of it, otherwise, such oath has no meaning." Menstruation has been considered taboo in Indian society, and women were barred from entering the kitchen or a temple during the menstruation cycle.

    A number of fundamental rights, mentioned in the {{w|Indian Constitution}}; including the right against discrimination on the basis of gender or sex, per Article 15; right to freedom of practice of any religion per Article 25; and abolishment of untouchability in Article 17; were considered in this case.

    Citing Article 25 (1) of the Indian constitution, Justice DY Chandrachud said, "All persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practice and propagate religion." Chandrachud went on to say, "This means your right as a woman to pray is not dependent on a legislation. It is a constitutional right. Nobody has an exclusionary right of entry to a temple".

    Chief Justice Dipak Misra said, "On what basis do you deny the entry. It is against the Constitutional mandate. Once you open it for public, anybody can go." Misra also said, "In a public place of worship, a woman can enter, where a man can go. What applies to a man, applies to a woman."

    Saying the state government is "bound to obey" the Supreme Court's verdict, Kerala's Minister K Surendran said, "The state government's stand is that women should be allowed to offer prayers in Sabarimala Temple [...] Devaswom board now has the same opinion as that of government."

  • US astronomers announce discovering ten tiny Jovian satellites

    Acagastya: /* Sources */ category


    {{date|July 19, 2018}}{{Space}}
    On Tuesday, astronomers of the {{w|Carnegie Institution for Science}} in [[Washington, DC]], [[United States]], announced the discovery of ten small satellites orbiting Jupiter. With this discovery, [[Jupiter]] now has 79 known satellites.

    The team led by {{w|Scott Sheppard}} had discovered twelve of the 79 Jovian satellites, including Tuesday's ten, mostly using a Blanco 4-meter telescope of [[Chile]]'s {{w|Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory}}. The observatory is operated by the {{W|National Optical Astronomy Observatory}} in the US. The tiny satellites, none more than five kilometres in diameter, were first observed in 2017. Orbits of these new Jovian satellites were calculated by {{w|International Astronomical Union}}'s {{w|Minor Planet Center}}'s {{w|Gareth V. Williams|Gareth Williams}}. Williams explained, "It takes several observations to confirm an object actually orbits around Jupiter [...] So, the whole process took a year."

    The astronomers were looking for planets much farther out than [[Pluto]]. Sheppard said, "Jupiter just happened to be in the sky near the search fields where we were looking for extremely distant {{w|Solar System}} objects, so we were {{wikt|serendipitously}} able to look for new moons around Jupiter while at the same time looking for planets at the fringes of our Solar System".

    Of the twelve satellites discovered by the team, nine were found to be {{wikt|retrograde}}, revolving around the gas giant in the direction opposite to the planet's spin. These nine new retrograde satellites take about two years to complete one revolution around Jupiter.

    The remaining three satellites were prograde, spinning in the same direction as Jupiter's rotation. One of the prograde satellites, newly announced on Tuesday, took about one-and-half years to complete one revolution around Jupiter, and its orbit intersected with the outer retrograde satellites. Sheppard said, "Our other discovery is a real oddball and has an orbit like no other known Jovian moon [...] It's also likely Jupiter's smallest known moon, being less than one kilometre in diameter". The astronomer also said, "This is an unstable situation [...] Head-on collisions would quickly break apart and grind the objects down to dust."

    Sheppard said of the composition of those satellites, they "started orbiting Jupiter, instead of falling into it. So we think they are intermediate between rocky asteroids and icy comets. So they are probably half ice and half rock."

    <!-- link the satellite here -->"{{w|Valetudo (moon)|Valetudo}}" is the name suggested for the "oddball" satellite. {{w|Hygieia|Valetudo}} <!-- link the goddess here -->was the [[Rome|Roman]] god {{w|Jove|Jupiter}}'s great-granddaughter, regarded as the goddess of health and hygiene.

    Sheppard said, "Jupiter is like a big vacuum cleaner because it is so massive". Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System, with a diameter about 142,984 kilometres. The largest known satellite in the Solar System is Jupiter's {{w|Ganymede}}, whose diameter is approximately 5268 kilometres. [[Saturn]] has the second-most known satellites: 62, while {{w|Uranus}} <!-- Urectum (nah, just kidding, Wait for some years before scientists rename it to end that stupid joke) -->has 27.

    [[File:КП "Муниципальная охрана" Одессы проводит демонтаж.png|thumb|left|Municipal Enterprise "Municipal Guard", acting on behalf of the Odessa City Council, is dismantling the facilities, beating lawyers and journalists|240px]]
    Yesterday<!--On Monday--> at a meeting of {{W|Odessa City Council}}, deputy Vadim Tereshchuk proposed an official investigation of the abuse of authority by the employees of the Department of Municipal Guard, who beat up journalists and lawyers the day before. The vice-mayor Anatoly Orlovsky did not support the request of Tereshchuk. However, he instructed the officials to inform the deputies about the progress of the investigation and its results.

    On July 13, employees of the municipal enterprise "Municipal Guard" attacked journalists who were filming the activity of Odessa city crews. As a result of the incident three journalists suffered, employees of the municipal enterprise used tear gas against them and beat them with rubber clubs.

    The events took place near one of the city parking lots in the center of {{W|Odessa}}. There were several cars of the "Municipal Guard". Their goal was to dismantle the parking bars of the “Redut” law company. However, they met resistance of the parking lot renter’s employees. It ended up with a conflict. The journalists were recording what was happening on cameras, but for some unknown reason the representatives of the "Municipal Guard" used special equipment in the form of tear gas and rubber clubs. As a result, three journalists were injured. At least two of them were delivered to a medical facility.

    At the moment, there are criminal proceedings: part 2 of Article 296 (hooliganism) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine; Article 171 (obstruction of the professional activity of journalists); article 345-1 (threat or violence against a journalist).

    Two employees of the Municipal Guard were reported of suspicions. Odessa Local Prosecutor's Office No. 3 is in charge of the criminal investigation which was opened after the events on the Nekrasova street.

  • France beats Croatia 4-2 to win 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Acagastya: /* Sources */ category


    {{date|July 16, 2018}}{{2018 FIFA World Cup}}
    Yesterday<!--On Sunday-->, [[France]] defeated [[Croatia]] 4&ndash;2 in the final of [[2018 FIFA World Cup|2018]] [[FIFA]] [[soccer|Football]] World Cup to win the tournament for the second time. French teenager {{w|Kylian Mbappé}} became the second teenager to score in a FIFA World Cup final after {{w|Pelé}} did in 1958's tournament.<!-- randomly guessing that number, hoping it is somewhere in the source -->

    Croatia dominated the ball possession, having almost twice as much as France. In the sixth minute, French defender {{w|Samuel Umtiti}} won a free kick in the defensive half. In the 17th minute, Croatian midfielder {{w|Marcelo Brozović}} committed a foul and the referee awarded France a freekick. [[Mario Mandžukić]] ended up scoring an own goal from [[Antoine Griezmann]]'s assist, giving France an early lead. {{W|Domagoj Vida}} and [[Ivan Rakitić]] tried to equalise for Croatia, later, but their attempts were either blocked or went wide. In the 27th minute, French defensive midfielder {{w|N'Golo Kanté}} was shown a yellow card for a bad foul. A minute later, [[Ivan Perišić]] scored a left-footed shot from Vida's assist, equalising for Croatia. The sides were not tied to 1&ndash;1 score for long. In the 35th minute, the referee awarded France a penalty kick, after confirming with the video assistant referee. Ivan Perišić had a handball in the penalty area. Greizmann scored from the penalty, putting the ball in the left corner and sending Croatian goalkeeper {{w|Danijel Subašić}} in the opposite direction. Frenchman {{w|Lucas Hernández}} was booked by the referee in the 41st minute. The first half ended with France leading 2&ndash;1.

    In the second half, Griezmann missed a chance to score from [[Olivier Giroud]]'s assist. France made their first substitution in the 55th minute, as {{w|N'Golo Kanté}} was replaced by {{w|Steven N'Zonzi}}. Just before the one-hour mark, Paul Pogba had a shot towards goal but was blocked and Pogba collected the ball, and on the second attempt, the French midfielder scored from the left-footed shot, doubling the lead for France. Kylian Mbappé scored the fourth goal in the 65th minute, from Hernández's assist. With this goal, Mbappé became the second teenager to score in a FIFA World Cup final. In the 69th minute, Mandžukić scored the second goal for Croatia, intercepting French goalkeeper {{w|Hugo Lloris}}' pass. However, Croatia could not catch up the two-goal difference, and the match ended 4&ndash;2, as France won their second FIFA World Cup.

    French coach {{w|Didier Deschamps}} became only the third person to win the FIFA football World Cup as a player and a coach. As a player, Deschamps won the World Cup in 1998, when he was the captain of the French team. Two years ago, the Deschamps-led French team ended up as the losing side in the [[UEFA Euro 2016]] tournament, 1&ndash;0 against [[Portugal]] in the extra-time.

    After the match, Croatia's coach {{w|Zlatko Dalić}} said, "I congratulate France on their title [...] I have to congratulate my players, it was maybe the best game we played in these championships; we controlled the match but we conceded. Against such a strong side as France, you must not make mistakes. We are a bit sad but we have to be proud as well for what we've done."

    Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitić said, "We were the better team in the first half, we were attacking, but we were unlucky tonight. They scored four goals from their three shots on goal. But I congratulate France, they deserved it."

    Tournament top scorer {{w|Harry Kane}} won the Adidas Golden Boot award. The [[England|English]] striker scored six goals in the entire tournament. [[Belgium]]'s goalkeeper [[Thibaut Courtois]] won the Adidas Golden Glove award. Croatia's captain [[Luka Modrić]] won the Adidas Golden Ball prize.

  • FIFA World Cup 2018: Belgium beats England 2-0 to claim third place finish

    Acagastya: /* Sources */ category


    {{date|July 16, 2018}}{{2018 FIFA World Cup}}
    On Saturday, [[Belgium]] defeated [[England]] 2&ndash;0 in the third-place match of the [[2018 FIFA World Cup|2018]] [[FIFA]] [[soccer|Football]] World Cup. [[Thomas Meunier]] scored an early goal and [[Eden Hazard]] doubled the lead for Belgium in the 82nd minute to seal off the third place at the tournament.

    England had more ball possession. Meunier opened the scoring for Belgium in the 4th minute, scoring a right-footed shot from within the penalty box, from {{w|Nacer Chadli}}'s assist. Chadli was in an offside position in the 13th minute, from {{w|Vincent Kompany}}'s through ball. In the 23rd minute, English striker {{w|Harry Kane}} missed a chance to equalise from {{w|Raheem Sterling}}'s assist. In the 39th minute, Belgium made their first substitution. Chadli was substituted off due to injury and was replaced by {{w|Thomas Vermaelen}}. Just before the first half whistle, Belgium tried to double the lead but [[Romelu Lukaku]] and {{w|Kevin De Bryune}}'s attempts were blocked.

    In the second half, England made a double substitution, as {{w|Jesse Lingard}} and {{w|Marcus Rashford}} came on for {{w|Danny Rose}} and Sterling. English defender {{w|John Stones}} was the first to get a yellow card. He was booked in the 52nd minute for a bad foul. At the one-hour mark, Lukaku was taken off for {{w|Dries Mertens}}. In the 70th minute, Rashford assisted {{w|Eric Dier}}, and Dier nearly equalised for England, chipping the ball over Belgian goalkeeper [[Thibaut Courtois]], but the attempt was blocked by Belgian defense. Moments later, {{w|Harry Maguire}} tried to head the ball in the goal, but the ball went wide. Maguire was booked in the 76th minute. English goalkeeper {{w|Jordan Pickford}} stopped Belgium from doubling their lead in the 80th minute on the counter-attack, but two minutes later, Belgium scored their second goal. De Bryune assisted Hazard, and Hazard scored a right-footed shot from within the penalty area. In the injury time, [[Axel Witsel]] was shown a yellow card. Moments later, the referee blew the final time whistle and Belgium won the third place in the tournament.

    After the match, Belgium's coach {{w|Roberto Martínez}} said, "We wanted to win it. When you beat Brazil and get into the semi-final, the focus has to be to try to win the World Cup. But you need to be realistic when you finish the tournament and look back. These players made history back in Belgium and that's all that matters. These players deserve to have that accolade."<!-- consider adding Brazil's SF for related news section -->

    English coach {{w|Gareth Southgate}} said, "In the end we are very proud of what we've done. We're under no illusions as to where we stand as a team; we've finished in the final four but we're not a top-four team yet, we know that and we've never hidden behind that. Against the very best teams we've come up short but we've had a wonderful adventure and some experiences that will stand this group of players and staff in really good stead for the future. I couldn't ask any more of any of the players today or right the way through the seven weeks we've worked together."

    Hazard won the Budweiser Man of the Match award.

  • English football: Chelsea announces Maurizio Sarri as their head coach

    Pi zero: typo


    {{date|July 15, 2018}}{{football}}
    Yesterday<!--On Saturday-->, [[England|English]] [[soccer|football]] club [[Chelsea FC]] announced signing {{w|Maurizio Sarri}} as the club's new coach. The [[Italy|Italian]] coach has signed a three-year contract with the [[London]]-based club.
    [[File:Sarri 2016.jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Maurizio Sarri, 2016. {{image|Илья Хохлов}}]]

    59-year-old Sarri has spent thirteen years as a football coach, and most recently he was at Italian club {{w|SSC Napoli}}. Sarri spent three seasons with Napoli, guiding the {{w|Naples}} club to a second-place finish in the Italian [[Serie A]] twice, and a third place finish once.

    On signing the three-year contract with Chelsea, Sarri said, "I am very happy to be coming to Chelsea and the Premier League. It is an exciting new period in my career." The Italian went on to say, "I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans, and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves."

  • US Senator and Vietnam War veteran John McCain succumbed to Brain Cancer

    AZOperator:


    {{develop}}{{date|July 14, 2018}}
    {{prepare}}
    {{United States}}__NOTOC__
    [[File:John McCain Official Other Version.jpg|left|thumb|Senator John Sydney McCain III of Arizona]]
    Today, the [[United States]] (US) Senator from [[:Category:Arizona|Arizona]] (AZ) and {{w|Vietnam War}} veteran {{w|John McCain|John Sydney McCain III}} died from complications associated with {{w|Glioblastoma}} discovered during a surgical procedure to remove a mass from above his left eye. Glioblastoma is an aggressive form of brain cancer which afflicted the late [[:Category:Massachusetts|Massachusetts]] Senator {{w|Ted Kennedy}}, brother to {{w|President of the United States|US President}} {{w|John F. Kennedy}}.

    After a {{w|Biopsy|biopsy}} of the mass, originally believed to be a {{w|Thrombus|blood clot}} associated with his preexisting {{w|Melanoma|melanoma}}, Sen. McCain immediately underwent {{w|Chemotherapy|chemotherapy}} and {{w|Radiation therapy|radiation treatments}} at the {{w|Mayo Clinic}} located in {{w|Scottsdale, AZ}}. Input also came from the highly regarded {{w|Barrow Neurological Institute}} located in downtown {{w|Phoenix, AZ}}. Between treatment, Sen. McCain would recover at his {{w|Sedona, AZ}} ranch.

    During the Vietnam War, he was imprisoned sustaining multiple torture techniques, which would develop into melanoma. Known then as Captain McCain, his {{w|Douglas A-4 Skyhawk}} was showdown over {{w|Hanoi|Hanoi, North Vietnam}}, ejecting over {{w|Trúc Bạch Lake}} where local fisherman pulled him from the water on October 26, 1967. The North Vietnamese offered to return Capt. McCain because of his father, Admiral John S. McCain Jr., becoming commander of all US forces in Vietnam, but Capt. McCain refused unless all prisoners of war captured before were repatrioted, thus he would be held for the remainder of the war at {{w|Hỏa Lò Prison}}, nicknamed the "Hanoi Hilton" until March 14, 1973. He was chronically disfigured and endured chronic pain for the rest of his life as a direct result of the pervasive torture.

    Stateside, McCain received intense physical therapy regaining his ability to walk, which was similar to the physical therapy after Glioblastoma treatments. His introduction into the world of politics came as the Navy's liaison to the {{w|United States Senate|US Senate}} starting in 1977. After divorcing his first wife of 25 years, {{w|Caroll Shepp}}, in early 1980, he would marry Cindy Hensley, now known as Cindy McCain, later that year.

    After two years of work for his father-in-law's {{w|Hensley & Co.}} brewery, which was an {{w|Anheuser-Busch}} distributor, and with other companies, he would run for Congressmen for {{w|Arizona's 1st congressional district|Arizona's 1st district}} in 1982. He was known for going door-to-door during the summer months in Phoenix, AZ with heat in excess of 115 F. He would spend the next 5-years as Rep. McCain, until {{w|Barry Goldwater}} vacated his senatorial seat in 1987. Ultimately he was elected to the Senate residing as a ranking member of the politically powerful {{w|United States Senate Committee on Armed Services|Armed Services Committee}} spending three decades overseeing defense spending accounting for the largest portion of federal spending.

    During the {{w|United States presidential election, 2000|2000 presidential election}} cycle, Sen. McCain would run for the {{w|Republican Party (United States)|Republican}} candidacy where his biggest challenger was then Gov. {{w|George W. Bush}}, whom would go on to become 43st president of the US. Sen. McCain also ran for {{w|United States presidential election, 2008|US president in 2008}} clinching the Republican nomination and appointing Gov. {{w|Sarah Palin}} of {{w|Alaska}} as his vice presidential candidate. In a later interview Sen. McCain said his first choice was Sen. {{w|Joe Lieberman}}, a former {{w|Democratic Party (United States)|Democrat}} from Connecticut turned Independent. He would be defeated by then freshmen Senator from {{w|Illinois}}, {{w|Barack Obama}}.

    Sen. McCain departure leaves a leadership vacuum in the Senate as establishment Republicans are politically fractured. An endorsement by Sen. McCain is one of the most sought after things for any Republican candidate. His actions garnered the nicknamed "Maverick of the Senate" successfully producing bipartisan policies.

    Since 1989, when Sen. McCain was the target of an ethics violations, later referred to as the {{w|Keating Five}}, Sen. McCain had sought campaign finance reform. After being determined as "acting in poor judgement", Sen. McCain helped develop the largest modern campaign finance reform with the {{w|Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act|2002 McCain-Feingold Act}} limiting special interest influence.

    Special spending amendments made to legislation, commonly referred to as 'pork barrel spending', has been a distasteful target for Sen. McCain calling it un-Constitutional and has never partook in the common legislative technique. Additionally, he has been against abortion and supported gun rights with a strict interpretation of the second amendment. His push for comprehensive immigration reform has not been addressed in significant policy changes.

    His death will be felt in Congress with friends of all political parties and the international community. During his treatment, Sen. McCain began developed plans for his funeral which will be held **** at the {{w|United States Naval Academy|Navy Academy}} in {{w|Annapolis, MD}}. Prior to his death, Navy officials honored Sen. McCain's by adding his name to the Destroyer USS John McCain originally named for his grandfather and father, both Navy officers.

    In attendance will be major power brokers domestically and internationally. After tensions with the {{w|US White House|White House}} over several issues and President {{w|Donald Trump}}'s comments, Sen. McCain and the McCain family have barred Trump from attending the service extending an invitation to Vice President Mike Pence instead.

    He is survived by his wife Cindy McCain, 7 children, and 5 grandchildren<!--Need to double check that-->.

  • Japan: Empty wooden North Korean 'ghost ship' washes ashore

    Bddmagic:


    {{abandoned|July 19, 2018|userspace=}}

    {{tasks|news|src|re-review}}{{date|July 14, 2018}}
    {{North Korea}}
    [[File:North Korean escape ship.jpg|thumb|left|An example of a known North Korean ghost ship (foreground). {{image|Smiley.toerist}}]]
    An empty wooden boat was pulled onto the [[Japan]] shore Saturday believed to have originated from [[North Korea]] as a means of fleeing from the North Korean government. When referring to these wooden vessels, Japanese officials coined the phrase "ghost ship" since they often contained no living crew.

    The most current ghost ship was originally spotted capsized at 17:30 (0830 {{w|Coordinated Universal Time|UTC}}) Wednesday near {{w|Matsumae, Hokkaido|Matsumae-cho, Japan}}. Thursday morning, local divers inspected the vessel, which had drifted 50 m (164 ft) from the original position, found no living or dead individuals, writings, or defining marks. Japanese officials investigated further when the boat was brought on shore Saturday.

    Under closer inspection, the color and design of the 8 {{w|meter|m}} (28 {{w|Foot (unit)|ft}}) vessel provided circumstantial links to other ghost ships with stronger evidence of a North Korean origin. For example, two deceased individuals were discover, one carrying a patch of the deceased North Korean leader {{w|Kim Il-sung}}. Another ghost ship had a North Korean cigaret container, and other ships had trace writings.

    Japan began keeping statistics for ghost ships starting in 2013. Accordingly statistics from 2017-18 allege, 114 ghost ships, with 43 deceased individuals recovered, and 42 individuals rescued in route. The deceased individuals, if identified as North Korean, are repatriated at a formal boarder crossing transversing the {{w|Korean Demilitarized Zone}}.

    North Korean Leader {{w|Kim Jong-un}} nor other officials have issued statements by suppressing media domestically and not formally recognizing the activity internationally. The {{w|Japanese Coast Guard}} and international maritime community have found ghost ships, and in some cases are able to rescue the occupants.

  • Swiss footballer Xherdan Shaqiri joins Liverpool

    Acagastya: /* Sources */ category


    {{date|July 14, 2018}}{{Football}}
    Yesterday<!--On Friday-->, [[Switzerland|Swiss]] [[soccer|footballer]] {{w|Xherdan Shaqiri}} joined [[Liverpool FC]] on a "long-term contract", the {{w|English Premier League}} club announced via their official website. According to multiple reports, Liverpool exercised the {{w|pound sterling|£}}13 million release clause in his contract with {{w|Stoke City}}.
    [[File:AUT vs. SUI 2015-11-17 (261).jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Xherdan Shaqiri, 2015. {{image|[[Commons:User:Steindy|Steindy]]}}]]
    26-year-old Shaqiri joined Stoke in August 2015 from [[Italy|Italian]] club [[Internazionale]] for a reported fee of £12 million. In three seasons at Stoke City, Shaqiri made 84 league appearances scoring fifteen goals, 92 appearances in all competitions for ''The Potters''. Last season, Stoke City were relegated to the {{w|EFL Championship}}.

    Shaqiri was the third signing of Liverpool this season. Club's manager [[Jürgen Klopp]] said, "I think the English phrase to explain the decision to sign Xherdan is a 'no-brainer'". Klopp went on to say, "I know him well from his time in Switzerland and especially Germany &mdash; I have been a long-time admirer. But the added bonus now is that he knows the Premier League and what it takes to perform in this uniquely intense environment."

    Before playing in England, Shaqiri played for {{w|FC Basel}} in Switzerland, [[Bayern Munich]] in [[Germany]], as well as for Internazionale. He won six league titles with Basel and Bayern, as well as the UEFA Champions League with Bayern in 2013, defeating [[Borussia Dortmund]] in the finals which were then managed by Jürgen Klopp.

    Internationally, Shaqiri has scored 21 goals in 74 appearances. In [[2018 FIFA World Cup|this year's FIFA World Cup]], Shaqiri played all four matches, before losing out to Sweden in the ''Last 16'' knockout phase. He scored one goal in the tournament, a 90th-minute winner against [[Serbia]].

    Klopp also said of Shaqiri, "He has speed and ability, has the right amount of arrogance on the football pitch, real bravery to want the ball and influence things".

    After signing the contract, Shaqiri said, "As a player, you always want to be on the biggest stage in football. A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn't happen. I'm really happy that now I'm finally here. I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles. That's what I'm here for."

    Shaqiri has been allocated jersey number 23. This season, Liverpool has signed {{w|Naby Keita}} from {{w|RB Leipzig}} and {{w|Fábio Tavares|Fabinho}} from {{w|AS Monaco}}.

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "FIFA World Cup 2018 semifinals: Croatia sends England home, 2-1": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 13, 2018}}{{2018 FIFA World Cup}}
    On Wednesday, [[Croatia]] defeated [[England]] 2&ndash;1 in the semi-final of the [[2018 FIFA World Cup|2018]] [[FIFA]] [[soccer|Football]] World Cup with [[Mario Mandžukić]] scoring the winning goal in the additional time. With this victory, Croatia is in their first-ever FIFA World Cup finals, and they are to face France on Sunday.

    Croatia had greater ball possession in the match. Croatian midfielder [[Luka Modrić]] committed a foul early in the game, and {{w|Dele Alli}} won a freekick for England in the 4th minute. {{w|Kieran Trippier}} scored from the freekick, giving England an early lead in the match. In the 14th minute, {{w|Harry Maguire}} came close to doubling the lead for England, but missed. [[Ivan Perišić]] and {{w|Ante Rebić}} tried to equalise soon after, but were unsuccessful. In the 30th minute, English striker {{w|Harry Kane}} was caught offside from {{w|Jesse Lingard}}'s through ball. {{w|Raheem Sterling}} and {{w|Šime Vrsaljko}} also tried their luck before the end of the first half. The first half ended with England having a one-goal advantage.

    Just three minutes into the second half, Croatia's forward Mario Mandžukić was yellow-carded. In the 54th minute, English defender {{w|Kyle Walker}} was also booked. Just after the one-hour mark, [[Ivan Rakitić]] missed a chance to level for Croatia. In the 68th minute, Croatia got the equalising goal as Perišić scored from {{w|Šime Vrsaljko}}'s assist. England made a substitution in the 74th minute when {{w|Marcus Rashford}} came on for Sterling. The second half ended with both sides tied, 1&ndash;1.

    At the beginning of the additional time, England made another change; {{w|Ashley Young}} was taken off for {{w|Danny Rose}}. {{w|Ivan Strinić}} was injured and Croatia made a substitution in the 95th minute, replacing him with {{w|Josip Pivarić}}. The referee booked Rebić in the 96th minute and he was later replaced by {{w|Andrej Kramarić}} in the 101st minute. Mario Mandžukić came to Croatia's rescue in the 109th minute, scoring from close range from Perišić's assist, which {{w|Jordan Pickford}} could not prevent from going to the back of the English net. {{w|Jamie Vardy}} came on for Walker in the 112th minute. Mandžukić injured himself and {{w|Vedran Ćorluka}} came on for him in the 115th minute. Croatia prevented England from getting an equaliser as the match ended 2&ndash;1 and Croatia advanced to their first-ever FIFA football World Cup final.

    After the match, England's coach {{w|Gareth Southgate}} said, "At the moment we all feel the pain of defeat. I don't think realistically we expected to be here, but once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life. The dressing room is a difficult place at the moment." He also added, saying, "You have to suffer the result first sometimes. I'm hugely proud of what we've done &mdash; I couldn't have asked for any more. They've broken through a number of barriers in the past weeks."

    Croatian coach {{w|Zlatko Dalić}} said, "Nobody wanted to give in when I was preparing the first eleven, nobody wanted to say I was not ready in extra time, no one wanted to be subbed and this shows character and what makes me proud. Nobody gave up."

    Croatia is to play France on Sunday in [[Moscow]] for the World Cup title.

  • England: London Pride organisers apologises after 'transphobic, hateful protestors' interrupts the parade

    {{date|July 11, 2018}}{{LGBT}}
    On Sunday, Pride in [[London]] organisers issued a public apology via their website condemning an unregistered lesbian protest group as "transphobic, hateful protestors who blocked the Pride". The annual lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual ([[LGBT]]) Pride in the [[England|English]] capital ended with roughly 30 thousand people participating in this year's parade, organisers said.

    A group of lesbians called "Get the L Out" protested in the parade with signs reading "Transactivism erases lesbians", "Lesbian Not Queer" and "Lesbian = Female homosexual". The group distributed leaflets which read, "The trans movement with the complicity of 'queer' LGBT politics is coercing lesbians to have sex with men. [...] We stand for the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners on the basis of their sex not their 'gender identity' [...] We condemn any pressure on lesbians [...] if they refuse so called 'transwomen' as potential sex partners".

    Pride in London organisers in their official statement said, "The protest group showed a level of bigotry, ignorance and hate that is unacceptable. We reject what this group stands for. They do not share our values, which are about inclusion and respect and support for the most marginalised parts of our community."

    The organisers called the "Get the L Out" group "transphobic". The group was not expelled from the pride as they did not commit a criminal offence, organisers said. By later report, Metropolitan Police allegedly refused to remove the "Get the L Out" group. On [[Twitter]], to counter the group, the hashtag of "#LwiththeT" surfaced. Board member of TransPALS Patricia Curtis condemned the "hijack" of the Pride parade.

    Condemning the incident, President of European Pride Organisers Association {{w|Kristine Garina}} said, "The Pride movement was begun by trans people and trans people must always be welcome at Pride". Garina continued, "Hate has no place at Pride, and we stand with the organisers who have promised to review what happened to try and ensure it cannot happen again."

    This year's theme was "Pride Matters". Saturday's parade started at {{w|Portland Place (London)|Portland Place}} at noon and ended at [[Whitehall]], the [[BBC]] reported, with 30 thousand people participating in the march from 472 organisations. London mayor [[Sadiq Khan]] also participated in the pride parade. "In London, you're free to be who you are and you're free to love who you want to love, and it's really important we're never complacent", Khan said.

  • Football: Manchester City signs Riyad Mahrez from Leicester

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Football: Manchester City signs Riyad Mahrez from Leicester": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 12, 2018}}{{Football}}
    On Tuesday, via their official website, [[Manchester City]] announced signing [[Algeria|Algerian]] [[Football (soccer)|footballer]] {{W|Riyad Mahrez}} from {{W|Leicester City FC}} for a fee of 60 million {{W|Pound sterling|GBP}}, making him the most expensive player in Man City's history. Mahrez signed a five-year contract with the [[England|English]] {{W|Premier League}} winners which runs through 2023.
    <!--[[File:Algérie - Arménie - 20140531 - Riyad Mahrez (cropped).jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Riyad Mahrez, 2014. {{image|[[Commons:User:Pleclown|Clément Bucco-Lechat]]}}]]-->

    27-year-old Mahrez joined Leicester in January 2014 from the then-second tier [[France|French]] club {{w|Le Havre AC|Le Havre}}. In his debut season for Leicester, they won the second-tier {{W|EFL Championship|Championship}} league title, gaining promotion to the Premier League.

    Mahrez won the Premier League with the club in 2015&ndash;16. That season, Mahrez was named {{W|Professional Footballers' Association}} (PFA) Player of the Year.

    After signing the contract, the Algerian forward said, "I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under {{w|Pep Guardiola}} [...] Watching them from afar has been a pleasure. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is perfect for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding. They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it."

    Man City's director of football {{w|Txiki Begiristain}} said, "Riyad is a hugely talented player. He beats defenders and creates space [...] Over the past few years, he has established himself as one of the Premier League's most exciting players. We're sure he will bring additional attacking quality to our squad."

    Mahzer has been allocated jersey number 26, the same number he has worn since moving to England in 2014.

  • Football: Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid for Juventus

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Football: Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid for Juventus": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 12, 2018}}{{football}}
    On Tuesday via their official website, {{w|Italy|Italian}} [[soccer|football]] club [[Juventus FC|Juventus]] announced signing [[Portugal|Portuguese]] forward [[Cristiano Ronaldo]] from [[Spain|Spanish]] {{w|Madrid|capital}} club [[Real Madrid]]. Per the press release, Ronaldo penned a four-year contract with the {{w|Turin}} club, which runs until June 30, 2022. Juventus said the {{w|euro|€}}100 million transfer fee and €12 million in add-ons is to be paid in two financial years.
    [[File:Ronaldo vs. FC Schalke 04 (16854146922).jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Christiano Ronaldo, 2015. {{image|[https://www.flickr.com/people/53632001@N02 Chris Deahr] ({{w|flickr}})}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/deed.en CC BY 2.0])]]

    33-year-old Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from {{w|England|English}} club {{w|Manchester United}}, for a reported then-world record fee of {{w|pound sterling|£}}80 million. Since then, the Portuguese has played 438 games, scoring 451 goals, a club record. During his tenure at {{w|Santiago Bernabeu}}, Ronaldo has won sixteen trophies, including three consecutive UEFA Champions League titles and two {{w|LaLiga}} titles. Two years ago, Ronaldo won the {{w|UEFA Euro 2016}} with Portugal.

    Addressing Real Madrid's club supporters, Ronaldo wrote, {{translated quote|es|Spanish language|creo que ha llegado el momento de abrir una nueva etapa en mi vida y por eso he pedido al club que acepte traspasarme|I believe the time has come to embark on a new chapter in my life and that's why I asked the club to allow me to move on}}.

    This signing makes Ronaldo the most expensive player in the history of Juventus, as well as for the Italian {{w|Serie A}} league. Previously, Juventus paid a fee of €90 million to sign {{w|Argentina|Argentine}} striker {{w|Gonzalo Higuaín}} from rivals {{w|S.S.C. Napoli}}, a then-Italian record transfer fee.

    Ronaldo had signed a five-year contract extension in 2016, which means he still had three years left.

  • Spanish Football Federation appoints Luis Enrique as men's national team coach

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Spanish Football Federation appoints Luis Enrique as men's national team coach": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 12, 2018}}{{football}}
    On Monday, the {{w|Real Federación Española de Fútbol}} (Royal Spanish Football Federation; RFEF) announced {{w|Luis Enrique}} as the new coach of the [[Spain|Spanish]] men's national [[soccer|football]] team. Per the contract, Enrique is to serve as the coach for two years.

    Speaking about Enrique's appointment, RFEF president {{w|Luis Rubiales}} said, "The decision was unanimous. I like his commitment and he has turned down better paid jobs in order to coach Spain. He’s a coach who completes all the requirements the Federation was looking for".

    Previously, Enrique has managed [[Italy|Italian]] [[Rome|capital]]-club [[AS Roma]] as well as Spanish [[LaLiga]] clubs {{w|Celta Vigo}} and [[FC Barcelona]]. Enrique took the managerial role at Barcelona in 2014, and in his first season at the [[Catalonia|Catalan]]-club, he won the treble, winning LaLiga, {{w|Copa del Rey}} and the [[UEFA Champions League]].

    During his tenure at the {{w|Camp Nou}}, Enrique won three Copa del Rey, two LaLiga, and one each of the UEFA Champions League, the {{w|UEFA Super Cup}}, the {{w|FIFA Club World Cup}} and the {{w|Supercopa de España}}. After winning nine trophies with Barcelona, he left the club in 2017 and hasn't taken any managerial role until now. After the treble winning season, Enrique was awarded the FIFA World Coach of the Year award in January 2016.

    Enrique succeeds {{w|Fernando Hierro}}, who served as an interim coach for Spain during [[2018 FIFA World Cup|this year's FIFA World Cup]]. Previous full-time coach {{w|Julen Lopetegui}} was sacked by RFEF after he signed a contract with [[Real Madrid]] as the club's new manager. Hierro was also the Spanish sporting director until Monday. Prior to the announcement of Enrique's appointment, {{w|José Francisco Molina}} was appointed as the new RFEF sporting director.

    Enrique's first game as Spain's coach is scheduled to be against [[England]] on September 8 at {{w|Wembley Stadium}} in the new {{w|UEFA Nations League}}.

    {{date|July 13, 2018}}{{2018 FIFA World Cup}}
    On Tuesday, [[France]] defeated [[Belgium]] 1&ndash;0 in the [[FIFA]] [[soccer|football]] [[2018 FIFA World Cup|World Cup]] semifinals. {{w|Samuel Umtiti}} scored the only goal of the match, and France is to play [[Croatia]] in the final.

    Belgium had better ball possession in the match. French forward [[Olivier Giroud]] faced some of his [[Chelsea FC|Chelsea]] teammates [[Thibaut Courtois]] and [[Eden Hazard]]. In the 19th minute, Eden Hazard's attempt for the goal was headed away by French defender {{w|Raphaël Varane}}. French goalkeeper {{w|Hugo Lloris}} saved {{w|Toby Alderweireld}}'s shot in the 22nd minute. {{w|Benjamin Pavard}} was denied the opening goal by Courtois in the 39th minute. The first half ended goallessly.

    In the second half, [[Romelu Lukaku]] missed a chance to put Belgium in lead, from [[Axel Witsel]]'s assist. Olivier Giroud missed a chance in the 51st minute, blocked. [[Antoine Griezmann]] took the corner, and French defender {{w|Samuel Umtiti}} scored from a header, giving France the lead. {{w|Kylian Mbappé}} assisted Giroud five minutes later but was blocked.

    Belgium made the first substitution at the one-hour mark as {{w|Mousa Dembélé}} was substituted off for {{w|Dries Mertens}}. Hazard was the first player to receive a yellow card in the match, for a bad foul in the 63rd minute. {{w|Toby Alderweireld}} was booked in the 71st minute. {{w|Kevin De Bruyne}} missed a chance to equalise for Belgium in the 76th minute from Hazard's assist. [[Paul Pogba]]'s 79th-minute shot missed the target.

    Belgium used their second substitution in the 80th minute as {{w|Marouane Fellaini}} was replaced by [[Yannick Carrasco]]. Lloris stopped Witsel's shot on target in the 81st minute. In the last few minutes of the 90-minute game, French defender {{w|Blaise Matuidi}} was injured and was replaced by {{w|Corentin Tolisso}}. {{w|N'Golo Kanté}}, Mbappé and {{w|Jan Vertonghen}} were booked late in the game. The match ended with France scoring the only goal.

    After the match, Belgian coach {{w|Roberto Martínez}} said, "It was a close game and it was very tight and it was going to be decided by that bit of luck in front of goal. The attitude of the players was brilliant and we couldn't ask for any more. We have to understand one team wins and the other loses, and we did what we could."

    French coach {{w|Didier Deschamps}} said, "The most important match is on Sunday, we have given ourselves a huge privilege to reach the final of the World Cup. I was there two years ago [Euro 2016 final] and it was so painful that we want to taste the victory now. It is nothing to win the semi-final after losing in the final two years ago, we have this privilege to give happiness to these people, but we will try to give even more happiness on Sunday."

    This is the second consecutive final for France in a major tournament. Two years ago, France reached the finals of [[UEFA Euro 2016]], but lost to [[Portugal]] in the extra time.

    France is now to face Croatia. France has featured in two FIFA World Cup finals to date, winning the 1998 tournament, while losing the 2006 World Cup to Italy.

    After the match, England's coach {{W|Gareth Southgate}} said, "I can't speak highly enough of the whole squad and whole group of staff because it is so united in there. The level of work has been great and their commitment to each other, you don't get through with just 11 players. They are all top people and are the reason we are in the semi-final just as much as any other."

    == Russia vs Croatia ==
    Hosts Russia faced Croatia at [[Sochi]]'s {{W|Fisht Stadium}}. Croatia dominated ball possession. Russia opened the scoring in the 31st minute, when [[Denis Cheryshev]] scored a long-range goal from outside the penalty area in the top left corner, from {{W|Artem Dzyuba}}'s assist.

    In the second half, {{W|Ivan Perišić}} missed an opportunity in the 60th minute to double the score for Croatia as his shot rebounded from the woodwork. Russia replaced Cheryshev with {{W|Fedor Smolov}} in the 67th minute. Croatia's {{W|Mateo Kovačić}} came on for Kramarić in the 88th minute. The second half ended with both sides tied to one goal and the match progressed to extra time.

In the 114th minute, {{W|Josip Pivarić}} was yellow-carded for a handball and Russia won a free kick. {{W|Mario Fernandes}} scored a header from {{W|Alan Dzagoev}}'s free-kick as both sides were tied with two goals at the end of extra time and the match went on to penalties.

    The Croatian goalkeeper saved Smolov's penalty while Fernandes missed his, sending the ball to the left. {{W|Marcelo Brozović}}, Modrić and Vida scored their penalties for Croatia, while Kovačić's kick was saved. {{W|Sergei Ignashevich}} and {{W|Daler Kuzyaev}} scored for Russia, and {{W|Ivan Rakitić}} scored the winning goal for Croatia.

    After the match, Croatia's coach {{W|Zlatko Dalić}} said, "Congratulations to my lads but also to the Russia team, who fought well. This was not a beautiful game, it was a fight, a battle for the semi-final. We were lucky." Dalić added, "Of course there is some power left for the English. We do not want to stop, we will try to play our best game. We have two matches to play and we are very motivated. We're giving our all. It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us."

  • France: Rainbow pedestrian crossings to 'be made permanent!', Paris mayor says

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "France: Rainbow pedestrian crossings 'will be permanent!', Paris mayor says": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 7, 2018}}{{france}}
    On Wednesday, [[Paris]] mayor {{w|Anne Hidalgo}} announced via [[Twitter]] that the rainbow-coloured crossings in the [[France|French]] capital are to be made permanent. This move comes after multiple vandalisations of rainbow-coloured crossroads during this year's Paris Pride.

    Hidalgo tweeted, saying, {{translated quote|fr|french language|Paris est une ville refuge qui fait sienne les valeurs républicaines de liberté, d'égalité et de fraternité. Pour qu’elles s’inscrivent à jamais en ses murs, les passages piétons arc-en-ciel créés pour la #MarcheFesFiertés seront permanents !|Paris is a city of refuge that embraces Republican values of freedom, equality and fraternity. In order for these values to be recorded forever, the rainbow pedestrian crossings created for Gay Pride will be permanent!}}

    The crossings were installed on June 14, and later, they were vandalised with the words written {{translation note|"LGBT dictatorship"|fr|French language|"Dictature LGBT"}}, {{translation note|"LGBT out of France"|fr|French language|"LGBT hors de France"}} and {{translation note|"Hidalgo go away"|fr|French language|"Hidalgo dégage"}}. That time, Hidalgo said, {{translated quote|fr|french language|Cette homophobie ne restera pas impunie.|This act of homophobia won't go unpunished.}}

    After the vandalism, French politician {{w|Jean-Luc Romero}} said, "Anti-LGBTQI hatred struck at the heart of Paris. Our answer is Saturday when hundreds of thousands of people will parade for the Pride Walk!" This year's Paris Pride took place on June 30.

    {{date|July 6, 2018}}{{Football}}
    Today<!--On Friday-->, [[France|French]]-[[Paris|capital]] [[Soccer|football]] club [[Paris Saint-Germain]] (PSG) announced the signing of [[Italy|Italian]] goalkeeper {{W|Gianluigi Buffon}} on a one-year contract and an option for one additional season.

    40-year-old Buffon made his professional debut for {{w|Parma Calcio 1913|Parma}} in 1995 at the age of seventeen. In 2001, Buffon moved to [[Juventus FC]] for a record fee of [[€]]52 million, the highest transfer fee for a goalkeeper.

    Since moving to Juventus, Buffon spent seventeen seasons with the ''Old Lady'', and featured in over 650 matches for the club. During his tenure at Juventus, Buffon won nine Italian [[Serie A]] titles and four {{W|Coppa Italia}}. Buffon also won a Coppa Italia while playing for Parma. Buffon maintained 300 clean-sheets in appearances for Juventus.

    Buffon has also featured in three [[UEFA Champions League]] finals, in 2003, 2015 and 2017; but lost to [[AC Milan]], [[FC Barcelona]] and [[Real Madrid]] respectively. In his last game for Juventus, Buffon was sent-off after receiving a red card and faces a three-match ban.

    Internationally, Buffon has featured in 176 matches, the most by any player for Italy. In 2006, Buffon won the [[FIFA]] World Cup with the ''Azzuri'', defeating [[France]] in the penalty shootout. Buffon retired from international football last year, after Italy failed to qualify for [[2018 FIFA World Cup|this year]]'s FIFA World Cup.

    After signing the one-year contract with PSG, Buffon said, {{translated quote|fr|French language|C'est avec un grand sentiment de bonheur que je rejoins le Paris Saint-Germain, a réagi Gianluigi Buffon après la signature de son contrat. Pour la première fois de ma carrière, je quitte mon pays et seul un projet aussi ambitieux pouvait m’amener à prendre une telle décision.|It is with a great feeling of happiness that I join Paris Saint-Germain. For the first time in my career, I am leaving my country and only a project this ambitious could have encouraged me to make such a decision.}}

    After Buffon completed his transfer to PSG as a free agent, the club's president {{w|Nasser Al-Khelaïfi}} said, {{translated quote|fr|French language|L’immensité de sa carrière, ainsi que sa personnalité ambitieuse, rassembleuse et élégante, en font l’un des joueurs les plus admirés et respectés du football mondial. À 40 ans, sa passion pour le football est intacte et Gianluigi a trouvé dans notre projet le cadre idéal pour se fixer des objectifs extrêmement élevés tout en transmettant son expérience, non seulement aux autres gardiens du Club, mais également à l’ensemble de nos joueurs.|The immensity of his career, as well as his ambitious personality, unifying and elegant, make him one of the most admired and respected players in world football. At 40 years old, his passion for football is intact and Gianluigi has found the ideal environment in our project to set himself extremely high objectives transmitting his experience, not only to the other goalkeepers at the club, but to all of our players.}}

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "FIFA World Cup 2018 quarterfinals: France, Belgium beat Uruguay, Brazil": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 9, 2018}}{{2018 FIFA World Cup}}
    On Friday, [[France]] defeated [[Uruguay]] 2&ndash;0 in the [[FIFA]] [[Soccer|football]] [[2018 FIFA World Cup|World Cup]] quarter-finals and [[Brazil]] lost 1&ndash;2 against [[Belgium]]. With this defeat only countries from the {{w|UEFA}} Confederation are now remaining in the tournament.

    == France vs Uruguay ==

    France faced Uruguay at the {{w|Nizhny Novgorod Stadium}}. The French side had better ball possession. Uruguayan striker {{w|Edinson Cavani}} was rested for the match and {{w|Luis Suárez}} faced his [[FC Barcelona]] teammate {{w|Samuel Umtiti}} in the quarter-final clash. Both the sides had early attempts to open the scoring. Uruguay blocked {{w|N'Golo Kanté}}'s 12th-minute attempt for a goal. Three minutes later, {{w|Kylian Mbappé}} missed a chance from {{w|Olivier Giroud}}'s pass to put France in the lead. In the 19th minute, {{w|Paul Pogba}} also had an attempt for goal but went wide. France opened the scoring in the 40th minute when {{w|Raphaël Varane}} scored a header from {{w|Antoine Griezmann}}'s assist. Minutes before the half-time, {{w|Hugo Lloris}} saved a shot preventing Uruguay from equalising, and {{w|Diego Godín}} missed a close-range shot. The first half ended with France having a one-goal lead.

    In the second half, just after the one-hour mark, Griezmann doubled the lead for France, scoring a goal from outside the penalty area from {{w|Corentin Tolisso}}'s assist. In the final ten minutes of the 90-minute play, French side made two substitutions, as {{w|Steven N'Zonzi}} and {{w|Ousmane Dembélé}} replaced Tolisso and Mbappé. The match ended 2&ndash;0.

    After the match, France's coach {{w|Didier Deschamps}} said, "We had done something big against Argentina and today we have again raised our level. I have a good team that still has plenty of room for improvement. You can see our lack of experience sometimes, but we have so many qualities too."

    Uruguayan coach {{w|Óscar Tabárez}} said, "The boys really gave everything, but France were able to control the match very well. After the second goal, there was a huge gap between the teams."

    With this victory, [[UEFA Euro 2016]]-finalists France reached the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup for the sixth time.

    == Brazil vs Belgium ==

    Brazil faced Belgium at the {{w|Kazan Arena}}. After Uruguay's defeat against France, Brazil was the only South American nation left in the tournament. The South Americans had better ball possession. In the 8th minute, Brazilian captain {{w|Thiago Silva}} missed a chance to open the scoring as his header rebounded from the goalpost. Belgian defender {{w|Vincent Kompany}} missed a header in the 13th minute from {{w|Nacer Chadli}} assist, but Fernandinho scored an own goal, giving Belgium an early lead. A couple of minutes later, {{w|Gabriel Jesus}} had an attempt to equalise, from {{w|Neymar}}'s assist, but the shot was blocked. {{w|Marcelo Vieira|Marcelo}} also attempted for a goal in the 26th minute but was saved.

    In the 31st minute, {{w|Kevin De Bruyne}} scored from outside the penalty area, doubling the lead for Belgium, assisted by {{w|Romelu Lukaku}}. Six minutes later, Belgian goalkeeper {{w|Thibaut Courtois}} saved a long-range shot by {{w|Philippe Coutinho}}. The first half ended and Belgium had a two-goal advantage.

    At the start of the second half, Brazil made a substitution as {{w|Roberto Firmino}} replaced {{w|Willian Borges|Willian}}. {{w|José Paulo Bezerra Maciel Júnior|Paulinho}} had an attempt in the 55th minute. Paulinho was substituted off in the 73rd minute for {{w|Renato Augusto}} and just three minutes after coming on, Augusto scored the first goal for Brazil in the 76th minute. Chadli was subbed off in the 83rd minute due to injury and was replaced by {{w|Thomas Vermaelen}}. Brazil tried to score an equaliser, but the match ended 2&ndash;1 as Belgium advanced to the semi-final.

    After the match, Belgium's coach {{w|Roberto Martinez}} said, "Brazil have so much finesse and you know that they can cut you open. But I didn't think for one second that the players would give up. They've done something special and I hope everyone in Belgium is very, very proud. It has created a nice memory and we should treasure it. But now we need more energy for our next game to try to make sure we're just as good in the semi-finals."

    Brazil's coach {{w|Adenor Bacchi|Tite}} said, ""I thought it was a great match and we had a lot of it, with plenty of possession and a lot of opportunities. But Belgium were more effective in converting their opportunities. They have a lot of top players and finished well. Thibaut Courtois also made a real difference. For all the pain I feel right now, if you like football, you have to watch this game. It's going to give you pleasure."

    Belgium is now scheduled to face France in the semi-finals.

  • Helsinki Pride 2018 ends after record number of attendees

    Pi zero: Protected "In Pictures: Helsinki Pride 2018 ends after record number of attendees": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 4, 2018}}{{LGBT}}
    On Sunday, the annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender ([[LGBT]]) {{w|Helsinki Pride}} came to an end. According to organisers and police in the [[Finland|Finnish]] capital [[Helsinki]], an estimated 100 thousand people attended the Saturday march of the Pride, which ran from June 25 to July 1 &mdash; about thrice the number of attendees of last year's Pride.

    Via their official website, the pride organisers said this year 80 events in 50 different locations were planned for the week. Human rights group Heseta organised this year's event, Finnish broadcaster ''{{W|Yle}}'' reported. Saturday's march for equal rights started at 1 PM local time at the {{W|Helsinki Senate Square|Senate Square}}, according to ''Yle''. Later the Pride marched to the {{W|Kaivopuisto}} park where it ended.

    Helsinki police tweeted saying, "Clearly more marchers this year than before". According to reports, about 35 thousand people participated in the march last year.

    Singer and voice actress {{W|Saara Aalto}} attended various events during the Pride. Aalto said, "I am very proud to be lesbian and I feel very much like I am lesbian, totally. [...] I have worked on my own mental health always. I have always been very fine with who I am and never cared about people's opinions." She also said, "I'm so grateful to all the people in my life who have given me the opportunity to become who I am [...] Love is the most important thing!"

    Finnish legislation legalised same-gender marriage in 2014.

    The competition, hosted by ''stadiumdb.com'' and now in its eighth edition, saw the victory of the [[w:Vodafone_Arena|Vodafone Arena]] of [[w:Beşiktaş_Jimnastik_Kulübü|Beşiktaş J.K.]] and the [[w:London_Stadium|Olympic Stadium]] in London. The ''Benito Stirpe'' was included in a selection including, among other facilities, the [[w:Estadio Wanda Metropolitano|Wanda Metropolitano]] of Madrid (home of the Champions League final in 2019), the [[w:Mercedes-Benz Stadium|Mercedes-Benz Stadium]] in Atlanta (1.5 billion dollars), the [[w:Luzhniki_Stadium|Lužniki stadium]] of Moscow (home of the [[w:2018_FIFA_World_Cup|FIFA World Cup finals in 2018]]) and the [[w:Krestovsky_Stadium|Saint Petersburg Stadium]] (also used in ''Russia 2018'').

    There will be two-prize nominations: a technical one concerning the design and one concerning the popularity among the public. The first is about a jury of technicians and designers including, among others, Nick Birmingham (Arup Associates, London), Riccardo Cestari (London), Bünyamin Derman (DB Architects, Istanbul), Maria Sipińska-Małaszyńska (APA Sipińska Małaszyński, Warsaw) and [[w:Sergei Tchoban|Sergei Tchoban]] (SPEECH, Berlin / Moscow). The second, the so-called "Public Award", consists of an on-line vote.

    On March 7, 2018 the final ranking was announced, in which the ''Benito Stirpe'' stadium was positioned at the nineteenth place.

    {{date|July 6, 2018}}{{2018 FIFA World Cup}}
    On Tuesday, [[Sweden]] defeated [[Switzerland]] 1&ndash;0 and [[England]] defeated [[Colombia]] 4&ndash;3 on penalties in the [[FIFA]] [[Soccer|football]] [[2018 FIFA World Cup|World Cup]] in the ''Last 16'' knockout phase. Sweden is now scheduled to play England in the quarter-finals.

    == Sweden vs Switzerland ==

    Sweden faced Switzerland at the {{w|Saint Petersburg stadium}} in the first match of the day. The Swiss side had greater ball possession and {{w|Xherdan Shaqiri}} made an early attempt for goal but missed. The Swedish side had multiple attempts to open the scoring, with {{w|Marcus Berg}}, {{w|Albin Ekdal}} and {{w|Mikael Lustig}} trying to find the net, but their shots missed the target or were blocked. Lustig was shown a yellow card in the 31st minute for a bad foul, the only one to be booked in the first half.

    In the 61st minute, {{w|Valon Behrami}} received a yellow card, the first Swiss player to be booked in the game. Five minutes later, {{w|Emil Forsberg}} scored a goal from {{w|Ola Toivonen}}'s assist, putting Sweden in the lead. In the 68th minute, {{w|Granit Xhaka}} was also shown a yellow card. In the injury time, Sweden was awarded a penalty kick <!-- see the referee pointing towards penalty spot -- 1:25 in video and then the red card at 1:31 --> and {{w|Michael Lang}} was sent off after receiving a red card. But after referring with the video assistant referee, the penalty was cancelled as the foul happened outside the penalty area. Sweden won a freekick outside the penalty area. Toivonen's freekick was saved by Swiss goalkeeper {{w|Yann Sommer}}. The match ended with Sweden winning 1&ndash;0.

    After the match, Switzerland's coach {{w|Vladimir Petković}} said, "We're sorely disappointed, the whole team is. We clearly wanted to do more. We should have done better but were simply below par and not good enough to win the game."

    Sweden's coach {{w|Janne Andersson}} said, "It was a surreal feeling to stand at the side of the pitch hearing the fans calling out my name, but football is a team sport and this team, for me, personifies that. We all work so hard for each other on and off the pitch. We know that we are a good team and that we have earned our successes."

    == Colombia vs England ==

    Colombia faced the English side at [[Moscow]]'s {{w|Spartak stadium}}. England had greater ball possession in the match. Both sides had multiple attempts to open the scoring, but nobody found the net. Colombia's {{w|Wilmar Barrios}} was yellow-carded in the 41st minute.

    In the second half, three more players, {{w|Santiago Arias}}, {{w|Carlos Sánchez}} and England's {{w|Jordan Henderson}} were booked. Sánchez brought down {{w|Harry Kane}} in the penalty area and England was awarded a penalty kick, which Kane converted. {{w|Juan Quintero}}'s attempt to equalise for Colombia at the end of the one-hour mark was blocked. Colombia made a substitution in the 62nd minute, as {{w|Jefferson Lerma}} was substituted off for {{w|Carlos Bacca}}. A minute later, {{w|Dele Alli}} missed a chance to double the lead for England. {{w|Radamel Falcao}} and Bacca were booked in the 63rd and 64th minute while England's {{w|Jesse Lingard}} was booked in the 69th minute. In the final ten minutes of the 90-minute match, {{w|Eric Dier}} and {{w|Jamie Vardy}} replaced Alli and {{w|Raheem Sterling}}. Colombia scored an equaliser in the injury time when {{w|Yerry Mina}}'s header from {{w|Juan Cuadrado}}'s assist found the back of the net. The second half ended with both the sides tied at 1&ndash;1.

    In the additional time, {{w|Kyle Walker}} was taken off due to injury and was replaced by {{w|Marcus Rashford}}. The additional time saw no goals, and the match went on to the penalty shoot-out.

    Falcao, Cuadrado and {{w|Luis Muriel}} scored their penalty-kicks for Colombia; while Kane and Rashford scored for England. {{w|Jordan Henderson}}'s kick was saved by Colombian goalkeeper {{w|David Ospina}} and {{w|Mateus Uribe}} missed his penalty kick for Colombia. {{w|Kieran Trippier}} scored from the spot-kick, while Bacca's penalty was saved. Eric Dier scored the winning penalty for England.

    After the match, Colombia's coach {{w|José Pékerman}} said, "We've been a brave squad, we've fought hard. We've never thrown in the towel when facing an opponent. We've had the right attitude and mindset." Harry Kane was awarded the Budweiser Man of the Match award.

  • Dublin Pride 2018 attracts tens of thousands of people

    {{date|July 3, 2018}}{{LGBT}}
    On Saturday, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender ([[LGBT]]) Pride in the [[Ireland|Irish]] capital [[Dublin]] attracted a record number of people. According to the organisers of the Pride, about 60 thousand people attended the event, almost double the number of attendees in last year's Pride.
    [[File:Dublin Pride Parade 2018 42.jpg|left|thumb|Defence Forces attended the annual Pride in their military uniforms for the first time {{image|[[c:User:Smirkybec|Dr Rebecca O'Neill]]}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/deed.en CC BY-SA 4.0])]]
    For the first time, members of the Defence Forces attended the annual rally in their military uniforms, ''{{W|The Independent}}'' reported. The Defence Forces were led by Vice-Admiral {{W|Mark Mellett}}. This year's theme was "We Are Family". Buildings were decorated in the colours of the rainbow on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Dublin Pride.

    According to reports, ex-president {{W|Mary McAleese}} and children's minister {{W|Katherine Zappone}} had attended the Pride. "Happy Pride everyone! Have a great day celebrating equality, inclusiveness and love", Health Minister {{W|Simon Harris}} [[Twitter|tweeted]].

    {{Wikt|Homosexuality}} was decriminalised in the Irish Republic 25 years ago in 1993, and the marriage of same-sex couples was legalised in November 2015 after a nation-wide referendum. On June 19, Irish {{W|Taoiseach}} {{W|Leo Varadkar}}, who is the country's first openly-gay Taoiseach addressed the {{W|Dáil}} saying, "Today the people I want to pay a special tribute to are the unknown heroes, the thousands of people whose names we do not know, who were criminalised by our forbears".

    Same-sex marriage is illegal in the neighbouring country of [[Northern Ireland]]. {{w|Mary Lou McDonald}}, leader of the {{w|Sinn Féin}} political party said, "We stand in solidarity to those in the North who are still struggling to have their families recognised in the most basic of ways - marriage equality". She added, saying, "The people here, the people of pride are an unstoppable force. Rights are for all. Equality is for all. Change is coming and make no mistake the North is next."

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "English football: Mohamed Salah signs contract extension with Liverpool": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 3, 2018}}{{Football}}
    Yesterday<!--On Monday-->, [[England|English]] [[soccer|football]] club [[Liverpool F.C.|Liverpool]] announced the contract extension of [[Egypt|Egyptian]] forward [[Mohamed Salah]] via their official website. The new "long-term" contract runs through 2023.
    [[File:KSA-EGY (5).jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Mohamed Salah. {{image|Анна Нэсси}}]]
    Salah joined Liverpool last summer from [[Italy|Italian]] club [[AS Roma]]. Salah was the league's top-scorer, scoring 32 goals in the English Premier League last season. Salah featured in 52 matches for Liverpool scoring 44 goals. The 26-year-old forward won the {{w|Premier League Golden Boot|Golden Boot award}} for finishing the season as top scorer as well as the {{W|Professional Footballers' Association}} ''Player of the Year'' award. Salah reached to the final of last season's [[UEFA Champions League]] but lost to [[Real Madrid]].

    After signing the contract, Salah said, "I'm very happy to say I have signed a new contract with the club". The Egyptian also said, "My first year at the club was an incredible experience for me and my family. I have to thank everyone at Liverpool and also you, our supporters. I know we can achieve a lot of things together".

    Liverpool's manager {{W|Jürgen Klopp}} said, "This news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season [...] When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think."

    == France v Argentina ==

    France faced Argentina in the first match of the ''Last 16'' at the {{w|Kazan Arena}}. Argentina had greater ball possession. In the 11th minute, France was awarded a penalty kick after {{w|Marcos Rojo}} received a yellow card, bringing down {{w|Kylian Mbappé}} in the penalty area. {{w|Antoine Griezmann}} scored from the penalty giving the French side an early lead. In the 41st minute, {{w|Ángel Di María}} equalised for Argentina from outside the box, assisted by {{w|Éver Banega}}. The first half ended 1&ndash;1.

    In the second half, {{w|Gabriel Mercado}} scored the second goal for Argentina from [[Lionel Messi]]'s assist, putting the [[South America]]ns in the lead in the 48th minute. France equalised within ten minutes, when {{w|Benjamin Pavard}} scored a goal from outside the penalty area. In the 64th minute, Mbappé scored the third goal for France and four minutes later Mbappé netted the fourth goal, from {{w|Olivier Giroud}}'s assist. French midfielder {{w|Paul Pogba}} committed a foul in the injury time and Argentina won a free kick in the defensive half. {{w|Sergio Agüero}} scored the third goal for Argentina from Messi's assist. The match ended with France emerging the winners.

    Nineteen-year-old Mbappé became the first teenager to score two goals in the FIFA World Cup tournament since [[Brazil|Brazilian]] {{w|Pelé}} when he achieved the feat in 1958. He was named Budweiser Man of the Match. After the match, French coach {{w|Didier Deschamps}} said, "There is an excellent mentality in this group and we did everything to go further. Since I am responsible for everything, particularly when it doesn't go well, I'm very proud."

    After the match, Argentine defender {{w|Javier Mascherano}} announced retirement from international football. Mascherano has played 147 games for the country, which is a national record.

    == Uruguay v Portugal ==

    Uruguay faced Portugal in the second match of the ''Last 16'' at {{w|Sochi}}. Portuguese captain [[Cristiano Ronaldo]] had an attempt for a goal in the 6th minute from {{w|Bernardo Silva}}'s assist, but it was saved. A minute later, Uruguayan striker {{w|Edinson Cavani}} scored a header from {{w|Luis Suárez}}'s assist, giving the South Americans an early lead. Just before the half-time whistle, Cavani had an opportunity to double the lead from {{w|Diego Godín}}'s assist but missed it. The first half ended with Uruguay leading 1&ndash;0.

    Ten minutes into the second half, {{w|Kepler Laveran de Lima Ferreira|Pepe}} equalised for Portugal, scoring a header from {{w|Raphaël Guerreiro}}'s assist. In the 62nd minute, Cavani scored a goal from {{w|Rodrigo Bentancur}}'s assist, restoring Uruguay's one-goal advantage. Cavani was later substituted off in the 74th minute due to injury. {{w|Ricardo Quaresma}}'s attempt for an equaliser in the injury time was saved and Uruguay won the match 2&ndash;1.

    After the match, Portugal's coach {{w|Fernando Santos}} said, "In football, there are no moral victories and I would have preferred to play worse and win the match. But I do feel that the second half was very good from us in terms of desire and our determination to score." Cavani was named Budweiser Man of the Match.

    France is to play Uruguay in the quarter-final.

  • Protests across United States object to separation of immigrant families

    {{date|July 1, 2018}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    Saturday<!--Saturday June 30-->, thousands of people across the [[United States]] marched and held up signs as part of the "{{w|Families Belong Together}}" protest of President [[Donald Trump]]'s administration's policy of confining the children of families entering the United States without authorization separately from their parents. These separations are part of the recent zero tolerance approach to illegal immigration, under which almost all illegal immigrants are prosecuted as criminals.<!--NPR--> As with the {{w|2017 Women's March}}, the main event was held in the U.S. capital, [[Washington, D.C.]], with sister events in other towns and cities, including [[Chicago]], {{w|Milwaukee}}, [[Philadelphia]], [[Miami]], [[Los Angeles]], and many smaller towns. Local police estimated a crowd of 7000 in {{w|Minneapolis}} alone.<!--MPR--> Organizers listed their goals to reporters as immediate return of immigrant children to their parents, the end of family detentions, and an end of the zero tolerance policy<!--CNN-->.
    [[File:Families Belong Together SF march 20180630-4180.jpg|left|thumb|Families Belong Together protesters at the San Francisco sister event. {{image|[[User:Funcrunch|Pax Ahimsa Gethen]]}}]]
    The event website lists more than 200 sponsoring organizations, including {{w|MoveOn.org}}, the {{w|National Domestic Workers Alliance}}, the Leadership Conference, Women's March and the [[American Civil Liberties Union]].<!--FBT website, scroll down-->

    "It is about the children but it is also about the unreckoned-with history of a country that has used immigrant labor as disposable and has failed to recognize that it is not families just deciding themselves to migrate, but a result of failed foreign policy and economic policy exported to other poor nations," event organizer Emilia Gonzalez told the press.<!--MPR-->

    According to Tyler Houlton of the {{w|United States Department of Homeland Security|U.S. Department of Homeland Security}}, only [[United States Congress|Congress]] can change the country's immigration laws: "We appreciate that these individuals have expressed an interest in and concern with the critical issue of securing our nation's borders and enforcing our immigration laws [...] As we have indicated before, the department is disappointed and frustrated by our nation's disastrous immigration laws and supports action."<!--MPR-->

    About 2500<!--CNN--> children, mostly [[Central America|central American]]<!--USAToday--> have been separated from their families while crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Officially, this is because, under the administration's zero-tolerance policy, every adult seeking to enter the United States without authorization is to be prosecuted as a criminal, but it is illegal to hold a child in detention for more than 20 days. The Obama administration had detained families together and received criticism for holding children past this limit.<!--NPR-->

    Some of these families were attempting to enter the country illegally, a {{w|misdemeanor}} crime, but others presented themselves at border crossings to formally request {{w|political asylum}}, which is legal. Before the zero tolerance policy, some asylum seekers were detained while their applications were processed but others were allowed monitored entry the United States to seek work and living arrangements. According to the United States Citizenship and Naturalization Service, about 80% of last year's applications were eventually denied<!--NBC-->.

    Earlier last week, after vocal public objection<!--CNN-->, President Trump signed an order ending the separation of families, and a federal judge ordered that all children be returned to their parents within 30 days, but so far only about 6 of the estimated 2500 immigrant children have been returned to their parents.<!--NBC-->

    {{football}}{{date|July 2, 2018}}
    Yesterday<!--On Sunday-->, [[Spain|Spanish]] [[Soccer|footballer]] {{W|Andrés Iniesta}} announced retirement from international football. The midfielder made the announcement after Spain lost to [[Russia]] in the ''Last 16'' match of the [[FIFA]] [[2018 FIFA World Cup|World Cup]]. Speaking to the reporters, Iniesta said, {{translated quote|es|spanish language|Es una realidad que es mi última partido con la Selección, a nivel individual se acaba una etapa maravillosa. En conjunto seguramente sea el día más triste de mi carrera|It's true that it is my last match with the National Team, on a personal level it's the end of a magnificent phase. Overall, I think it's the saddest day of my career.}}
    [[File:Andrés Iniesta Euro 2012 final.jpg|thumb|left|File photo of Andrés Iniesta, who won the man of the match award. {{image|Илья Хохлов}} ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/deed.en CC BY-SA 3.0])]]
    Since 34-year-old Iniesta made his international debut, he has featured in 131 games, scoring thirteen goals. Iniesta also scored the winning goal against the [[Netherlands]] in the 2010 World Cup final. With the international team, Iniesta has won two UEFA Euro trophies in 2008 and 2012 as well as the {{W|2010 FIFA World Cup}}.

    After the match, Iniesta said, "It's true that this was my last match with the national team. On an individual level, it brings an end to a marvellous chapter of my life. It's a difficult moment, one we've experienced before, but we weren't capable of that little bit extra. My personal cycle ends here after a long time [playing for Spain], but everything has its beginning and end. It isn't the farewell I dreamed about, but football and life can be like that."

    Iniesta's last match for Spain went on to a penalty shootout against Russia after a 1&ndash;1 draw at the end of extra time. Iniesta was the first to take the penalty kick and scored the spot kick.

  • India: Madhya Pradesh police arrests second accused of gang raping a minor girl in Mandsaur district

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "India: Madhya Pradesh police arrests second accused of gang-raping minor girl in Mandsaur district" ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|July 1, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Friday, {{w|Madhya Pradesh}} police arrested the second person accused of gang-{{w|rape|raping}} a minor girl in the {{w|Mandsaur district}}. According to varying reports, the rape victim was seven or eight years old.

    According to police inspector Jitendra Singh Yadav of Mandsaur Kotwali police, they arrested 24-year-old construction worker Asif on Friday. Another accused, 20-year-old Irfan, was arrested on Wednesday, one day after both of them allegedly kidnapped the girl after school, raped her, and slit her throat. According to the police statement, one of the accused was seen with the girl in CCTV footage. Police inspector Yadav said, "We questioned Irfan and he confessed about Asif's involvement".

    Madhya Pradesh's Chief Minister {{w|Shivraj Singh Chouhan}} said, "The accused has already been arrested and there is evidence against him. We will ensure though fast-track courts that he will get capital punishment at the earliest". Calling those rapists "a burden on the society", Chouhan said, "We want that people who did such heinous crime should be hanged to death. Human rights are for humans, not for the devils."

    Last year, Madhya Pradesh assembly passed a bill approving capital punishment for those convicted for raping girls below the age of twelve. [[India]]n Ministers of the {{w|Union Council of Ministers of India|Union Cabinet}} also approved an ordinance in April approving fast-track courts for rapes of minors and death penalty for those convicted for raping girls under the age of twelve.

    The girl was taken to a hospital in {{w|Indore}} and after performing two operations, the doctors said on Friday that she was stable.

    Asif and Irfan are booked under the {{w|Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act}} for kidnapping and raping the minor.

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "India: Punjab cabinet republishes ordinance approving capital punishment for rape of girls under age twelve": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|June 29, 2018}}{{India}}
    On Wednesday, the cabinet of the [[India]]n state of {{w|Punjab (India)|Punjab}} republished an ordinance which approved {{w|capital punishment}} for convicts of raping a girl under the age of twelve. In April, India's {{w|Union Council of Ministers of India|Union Cabinet}} approved the ordinance after nationwide protests that took place in various cities after an eight-year-old girl was gang-raped and killed in {{w|Kathua}} city in {{w|Jammu and Kashmir}}.

    The State Cabinet approved the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance under Chief Minister {{w|Amarinder Singh}}. Per the ordinance, rape convicts of girls below the age of twelve can now be sentenced to death. Further strengthening the ordinance from the Union Cabinet, punishment for rape convicts of girls below the age of sixteen is life imprisonment. The Union Cabinet had approved a twenty-year jail term which could be extended to life-long imprisonment. Prison term for convicts of rape of females above the age of sixteen has been increased from seven to ten years.

    The ordinance also mentions mandatory completion of rape investigation within a period of two months. It also ruled out anticipatory bail for those accused of raping a girl below the age of sixteen.

    The ordinance was republished in the Punjab {{w|Government gazette|Gazette}}. The Indian Union Cabinet had approved the ordinance on April 21, and a day later India's president {{w|Ram Nath Kovind}} also approved the ordinance.

    [[File:Vcja Rossia.pdf|thumb|left|The encyclopedia cover and download link. {{Image source|Institute of economics and management in industry}}]]
    The ''Institute of economics and management in industry'' located in [[Moscow]], [[Russia]] sent an official confirmation to Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository run by Wikimedia Foundation, allowing to release the 'All Russia' encyclopedia published by the Institute under a free licence. Wikimedia Commons confirmed the permission and uploaded the file on 26 June 2018.

    According to the "University Book" (Университетская книга) online portal and according to the Wikimedia Russia chapter, 'All Russia' became the first paper encyclopedia in Russia to be released under a free licence.

    The permission came in the form from the head of the institute, Oleg Arkadevich Mikheev, to an official Wikimedia Commons address which is processed by volunteers to confirm the licensing permissions of newly created uploads. After the permission confirmation, a licensing volunteer from Wikimedia Commons whose Wikimedia username was 'Lvova', uploaded the file at 14:15 (UTC) on 26 June 2018.

    The encyclopedia had an alphabetic index of cities and localities in Russia. Specifically according to the introduction at the beginning of the encyclopedia, 1448 localities are included of the Russian Federation, including 1051 cities, 366 settlements, 25 villages, 5 stations, and one sloboda -- a large village or settlement, usually populated by non-serf (free) peasants -- Bolshaya Martynivka. The encyclopedia was first published in 2001.

    The free licence was Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International. It allowed everybody to copy, distribute and transmit the work, and to adapt the work, under the conditions of attribution and sharing alike. Sharing alike required that person, if they alter, transform, or build upon this work, they may distribute the resulting work only under the same or similar license to this one.

    The Wikimedia Russia chapter, a non-profit supporting Wikimedia projects in Russia, has responded by publishing a press release in which they endorsed the move.

  • Italian football: Nainggolan moves to Inter Milan from Roma

    Pi zero: {{w}}


    {{date|June 26, 2018}}{{football}}
    Today, via their website, {{w|Milan}}-based [[Italy|Italian]] [[soccer|football]] club [[Internazionale]] announced the signing of [[Belgium|Belgian]] midfielder {{w|Radja Nainggolan}} from {{w|AS Roma}} on a four-year contract which runs until June 30, 2022. The deal is worth an initial fee of [[€]]38 million, AS Roma announced via their official website.

    30-year-old Nainggolan joined Roma in January 2014 and has featured in 203 goals for the club. During his tenure at the Italian-[[Rome|capital]] club, Nainggolan scored 33 goals. Last season, the Belgian scored six goals in all competitions as Roma finished third in the Italian [[Serie A]] league, and reached the semi-finals of the [[UEFA Champions League]]. Internationally, Nainggolan has played 30 matches for Belgium and scored six goals. Last month, Nainggolan retired from international football after he was left out of the Belgian team in this year's [[2018 FIFA World Cup|FIFA World Cup]] in [[Russia]].

    After signing the contract, Nainggolan said, {{translated quote|it|Italian language|L'importante è sentire la fiducia, mi hanno chiamato il Direttore Ausilio, il Mister e Zanetti. Mi hanno fatto sentire importante, la mia scelta è stata semplice. Sono carico per la nuova avventura.|Confidence is key and I received calls from Director {{w|sister=w:it|Piero Ausilio|[Piero] Ausilio}}, the Coach and {{w|Javier Zanetti|[Javier] Zanetti}}. They all made me feel important and my decision was simple. I am ready to go ahead of this new adventure.}}

    With this move, Nainggolan will be reunited with former Roma coach {{w|Luciano Spalletti}}, who joined Inter a year ago. Inter's {{w|Davide Santon}} and {{w|Nicolò Zaniolo}} made a move in the opposite direction, moving to Roma on a permanent basis.

  • Dutch senate votes in favour of face veil ban

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Dutch senate votes in favour of face veil ban": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|June 29, 2018}}{{Crime and law}}
    On Tuesday, the upper house of the [[Netherlands|Dutch]] parliament voted in favour of a face-veil ban which is applicable to places including public transport, government buildings, schools, and hospitals.

    Banning [[Muslim]] women's clothings &mdash; ''{{W|Burqa}}'' and ''{{W|Niqab}}'' &mdash; has been discussed in the parliament for many years. The face veil ban was passed by the lower house in 2016. In 2015, the advisors of Parliament said wearing a ''burqa'' or ''niqab'' was guaranteed by the constitutional right to religious freedom.

    The face veil ban makes it illegal for citizens to cover their face. Wearing helmets inside government buildings is also banned. DutchNews.nl reported the fine of violating the law is [[€]]400. The ban does not apply on the streets.

    Calling the day historic, Senator {{w|Marjolein Faber|Marjolein Faber-Van de Klashorst}} said it was "the first day to de-Islamise the Netherlands." "This is the first step and the next step is to close the mosques in the Netherlands", Van de Klashorst said. Senator {{W|Ruard Ganzevoort}} of the {{w|Green Party Netherlands|Green Party}} said, "It is completely disproportionate and the only effect will be that many of these women will stay at home even more [...] They will not have an opportunity to go to school."

    The {{w|Christian Democratic Appeal}} party's minister {{w|Piet Hein Donner}} said, {{translated quote|nl|Dutch language|Niet alles waarvoor je je op godsdienstvrijheid beroept, mag je ook maar doen. Deze vrijheid moet kunnen worden beperkt in het algemeen belang.|Not everything for which you call on religious freedom, you can also do. This freedom must be limited in the public interest.}} {{w|Independent Senate Group|Independent Senate}}'s senator {{w|Henk ten Hoeve}} said, {{translated quote|nl|Dutch language|Deze wet zal in de praktijk niet heel veel veranderen, maar geeft toch als boodschap dat deze vorm van de islam in onze maatschappij eigenlijk niet past, omdat hij daar ontregelend werkt.|This law will not change very much in practice, but gives a message that this form of Islam in our society actually does not fit, because it disrupts it.}}

    The Netherlands is a {{wikt|secular}} country, and according to reports, the number of Muslim women wearing a ''burqa'' or a ''niqab'' is between 200 to 400. Previously, the [[Denmark|Danish]] parliament voted in favour of a similar face veil ban in May; it is scheduled to come under effect on August 1. [[France]] and [[Belgium]] had also introduced such bans.

  • Serbian Football Association lodge complaint against Swiss footballers Xhaka, Shaqiri for their eagle salute celebration

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Serbian Football Association complain about Swiss footballers Xhaka, Shaqiri eagle salute celebration": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|June 25, 2018}}{{Politics and conflicts}}
    The {{w|Serbian Football Association}}, on Saturday, lodged a complaint with [[FIFA]] against [[Switzerland|Swiss]] [[soccer|footballers]] {{w|Granit Xhaka}} and {{w|Xherdan Shaqiri}} for their eagle salute celebration. FIFA later launched an investigation for disciplinary actions against the two players.

    In Friday's match, Switzerland defeated Serbia 2&ndash;1 with goals from Xhaka and Shaqiri. Both the players celebrated their goals by making hand gestures resembling the double-headed eagle on the [[Albania]]n national flag. Xhaka and Shaqiri are both of [[Kosovo|Kosovar]]-Albanian origin, and grew up in Switzerland. Kosovo is a former Serbian province which separated from the country in 2008. Serbia, however, does not recognise Kosovo as a sovereign state. A large proportion of the 1.8 million citizens of Kosovo are ethnic Albanians.

    Xherdan Shaqiri's football boots had both an Albanian flag and a Swiss flag. After the match, the Serbian Football Association secretary general, {{w|Jovan Surbatovic}}, said he would raise the issues of the "boots, a question of several controversial flags and the celebration of both goals for Switzerland". Per FIFA guidelines, players found guilty of "provoking the general public" face a fine as well as suspension for up to two matches.

    After the match, Granit Xhaka said, "Frankly, my opponents did not interest me at all [...] It was for my people, who always supported me. For those who did not neglect me, in my homeland, where my parents' roots are. These were purely emotions." Meanwhile Shaqiri, who scored the late winning goal said, "I can't discuss the gesture I am afraid. We are footballers, not politicians[...] Emotions sometimes take over footballers and there was a lot of emotion out there."

    Swiss coach {{w|Vladimir Petković}} said, "I think we all together need to steer away from politics in football and we should focus on this sport as a beautiful game and something that brings people together."

    Two Swiss government officials, Sports Minister {{W|Guy Parmelin}} and Foreign Minister {{w|Ignazio Cassis}} supported Xhaka and Shaqiri's celebration. Cassis said, "I have no doubt that you can feel patriotic emotions for the land which has taken you in without forgetting your roots".

    FIFA has also launched an investigation for disciplinary action against Serbian supporters for "the display of political and offensive messages". Another action is being taken against Serbian Football Association president {{w|Slavisa Kokeza}} for asserting that the match officials, including [[Germany|German]] referee {{w|Felix Brych}}, were biased towards Switzerland.

  • India: Plastic Ban in Maharashtra comes to force

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "India: Maharashtra plastic ban comes into force": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|June 25, 2018}}{{Environment}}
    On Saturday, the plastic ban in the [[India]]n state of [[Maharashtra]] came into force. In an attempt to minimise pollution, the state government has introduced a ban on single-use plastics.

    The leader of the {{w|Yuya Sena}} political party, {{w|Aditya Thackeray|Aaditya Thackeray}}, said on [[Twitter]], "The ban on single use disposable plastic cups, plastic bags, plastic straws, plastic plates and cutlery, styrofoam cutlery and non woven bags". He added, "these are global issues now and we have taken a step to combat it".

    Plastic pollution has led to the choking of drains, marine pollution and a risk of animals consuming plastics. This year, India's motto for World Environment Day &mdash; June 5 &mdash; was "Beat Plastic Pollution". People violating the plastic ban are to face a fine of 5,000 Indian Rupees (INR) for the first offence. For the second offence, the fine is INR 10,000 and the third time offence is INR 25,000 and a three-month prison term. Deputy municipal commissioner Nidhi Choudhary said, "To weed out corruption, we plan to give inspectors payment gadgets for electronic receipts of the fines".

    The Maharashtra government has given a 90-day period for manufacturers to dispose of existing {{w|polyethylene terephthalate}} (PET/PETE) plastic spoons and plates, while shopkeepers and citizens in general have six months to dispose of plastics. However, the ban does not prohibit plastic usage for wrapping medicines or milk cartons thicker than 50 {{w|micron}}s.

    The state government had announced the decision for the plastic ban on March 23. According to NDTV's report, Maharashtra is the eighteenth Indian state to enforce a state-wide plastic ban. Aaditya Thackeray also said, "I congratulate the citizens for making this into a movement, even before the ban was enforceable, giving up single use disposable plastic."
