The US courts are busy with state Attorneys General challenging US President Trump in many ways. Deleting the hyperbole, fixing the reversal of terminology and expunging the adjectives that turn so many of the important statements made by e.g. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra into tabloid-style and undermines their credibility, we've picked out the salient points of one of the most important challenges: 20 Attorneys General have obtained an interim injunction to block the Trump administration's decision that it's OK to publish the blueprints for the making of a working gun using a 3D printer.

It's not a big-enough proportion: 14 of the USA's states Attorneys General are trying to obtain an order to prevent the implementation of a PoTUS Trump plan that they say will have a serious impact on the ability of the USA's Environmental Protection Agency or EPA to assess, amongst other things, the effects of climate change and the potential risks.

The Internet Crime Complaint Centre (IC3) has seen a growing number of reports about extortion attempts received by both e-mail and postal mail which use specific information about the potential victim to add authenticity. While there are many variations in these extortion attempts, there is often something common to the approaches, IC3 says.

A manufacturer of display panels and other exhibition stands has been convicted of an offence under the UK's Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. In April 2017, an unstable stack of panels "toppled over" onto an employee causing him to suffer a dislocated shoulder and a broken arm. The cause was surprisingly simple.

The attacks on a mother over parenting, culture and her love for her child demonstrate that political correctness is bullying, unthinking, brash and racist. And the racists chose the most accepting venue of all - Australian Masterchef - to demonstrate the worst side of so called progressivism and liberalism.

The Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) has this morning issued a warning about kidnap and ransom threats made against, in particular, Chinese residents in Australia with more than 1,700 cases reported so far in 2018.

The debate over the use of a measles, mumps and rubella vaccine continues around the world with (generally discredited) opinions held by some that the vaccine may lead to autism, amongst other things, and simply because of cultural of financial issues. However, the risk of the spread of disease is now being demonstrated, with outbreaks of measles, in particular, originating where failure or refusal to vaccinate is common.

A notice from the USA's Office of Business, Industry and Security (BIS) starts "Control of Firearms, Guns, Ammunition and Related Articles the President
Determines No" but the pleasure of reading that is lost when, on scrolling down, the unfortunate spacing in the notice reveals that it's an incomplete sentence and it goes on "Longer Warrant Control under the United States Munitions List (USML)." It's a proposal, published as a "Commerce proposed rule, Control of Firearms, Guns, Ammunition and Related Articles the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control under the United States Munitions List (USML) published in the Federal Register on 24 May, 2018." Far from the idea that Trump might be having second thoughts about gun control, he actually plans to arm the world with the very weapons that American nutcases use to massacre schoolchildren and others. Or does it?

Last night the Taipei metro area suffered from substantial earthquake damage resulting from a 6.4 on the Richter scale shock under the sea nearby. Reports on the number of casualties differ - within two hours, local Chinese language media was reporting that there had been 29 deaths while national media, fed from state sources, reported two deaths and about 100 hospital casualties. It's all horribly reminiscent of the events of December 2006 and the lessons learned.

Walking along a Phuket beachfront, "John," in his mid thirties and from England's North West, cut a solitary figure, hunched, the high-visibility of someone trying to keep a low profile. As he posed for a selfie with an unusually insipid sunrise at his back, he gave of the air of the careworn. "Can I get a boat from here to Malaysia?" he asked. As his story unfolded, it raised as many questions as it gave answers.
