The European Union is set to ban the re-export of Russian LNG in the bloc’s waters in a first sanctions measure targeting Russia’s gas, EU diplomats told Reuters on Thursday.

The EU has been debating the 14th sanctions package against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine for a month, including proposals to ban LNG trans-shipments in EU waters and ways to address Russia’s shadow fleet of oil tankers.

“EU Ambassadors just agreed on a powerful and substantial 14th package of sanctions in reaction to the Russian aggression against Ukraine,” Belgium, which holds the rotating EU presidency, said on Thursday.

“This package provides new targeted measures and maximizes the impact of existing sanctions by closing loopholes,” the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the EU said.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen commented,

“This hard-hitting package will further deny Russia access to key technologies. It will strip Russia of further energy revenues. And tackle Putin’s shadow fleet and shadow banking network abroad.”

Claire's Observations:  This will most probably be just as effective as have been all the other sanctions against Russia while its economy grows, and that of the West and Europe, stagnates!!!!

Stocks are poised for a pullback of up to 12 percent after a storming start to the year, a Wall Street veteran has warned.

Global stocks hit record highs on Wednesday - ahead of a day off from trading for the Juneteenth holiday yesterday. 

Surges in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were driven by a rally in tech shares that has also made AI chipmaker Nvidia the world's most valuable company.

All round it is good news for investors, including the Americans whose retirement savings are largely invested in US indices.

The president of the German Teachers Association has warned that the country’s education system is being overwhelmed with migrant students, many of whom are illiterate and can barely speak the language.

“Due to immigration in 2015, the war in Ukraine and other immigration, new people are constantly coming into the system, but the system is slow to keep up because it is moving too fast,” said Stefan Düll.

Düll warned that a massive burden was being placed on educators because many of the children speak little or no German whatsoever.

“After all, they don’t speak Farsi or Ukrainian. How are they supposed to teach them?” he asked.

Given that around a quarter of 4th grade students in the country can’t speak German, Düll said the high number of immigrant children means “the group of illiterates becoming larger.”

“The higher the percentage of immigrants, the more difficult it is to motivate the class,” he added.

Claire's Observations:  Welcome to our world, Mr. Dull!!  And that lousy  excuse for a government you've got in power right now; kindly vote them out at the next possible opportunity!!!!!

A Boeing 737 aircraft suddenly plummeted to less than 500 feet of the ground over Oklahoma, terrifying residents who feared the jet was going to crash.

Southwest Airlines Flight 4069 was still nine miles away from Will Rogers World Airport just after midnight on Wednesday, when records show it dived to between 400 and 500 feet as it flew over a high school in the City of Yukon.

Doorbell camera footage showed the Boeing 737 MAX-8 then hovering above houses, before it flies out of frame. 

A resident was startled awake by the plane's engine and wondered if the aircraft was set for a collision.

Israel is "very serious" about invading Lebanon, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, even though they're losing their war with Hamas in Gaza.

From CNN, "Israel 'very serious about going into Lebanon'":
 

During Secretary of State Antony Blinken's recent trip to the Middle East, he told an Arab counterpart that it appears Israel is intent on launching an incursion into Lebanon, according to a source familiar with the meeting.

"It seems that they [Israel] are very serious about going into Lebanon," the person said. The Arab official's response to Blinken, the source added, was that Hezbollah has communicated that they will not stop their strikes on Israel until Israel stops its operations in Gaza.

Israeli officials have told the US that one of its main goals in an offensive would be to push Hezbollah back, creating a buffer zone between Israel and Lebanon and allowing the tens of thousands of Israelis who have been forced out of their homes in the north because of the cross-border attacks to return.

A Democrat political strategist is confirming what many believe is the biggest problem with Joe Biden's re-election campaign: Joe Biden.

The president - a week ahead of the surprise first debate against Donald Trump - continues to struggle in the polls, often trailing nationally and in key swing states.

What's worse for Biden is that the Democrat Senators defending their seats this November are running ahead of Biden and even handily leading their Republican opponent.

However, in the same polls, the consistently gaffe-prone Biden is either barely leading or outright trailing his long-time rival.

The BBC's decision to ban Reform UK and Nigel Farage - second in the polls – from tonight's Question Time and shunt him to a programme with the Greens next week is an utter disgrace. It's no coincidence that he's the leader calling for the licence fee to be abolished. DEFUND IT!

In recent days, the Russian army dropped a gigantic three-ton bomb known as the FAB-3000 on a building block in the village of Lyptsi. Video footage of the strike shows the enormous destructive power of the new bomb, which was reportedly being deployed for the first time. A massive explosion can be seen producing an enormous mushroom cloud of flames and black smoke which smothers the building. Images afterwards reveal the building sustained massive damages from the attack and was reduced to a shell of its former self. The bomb fell about ten metres from the building but had a lethal radius of 230 metres.

Senior Vice President at The Walt Disney Company details discriminatory hiring practices: "Nobody else is going to tell you this, but they're not considering any white males for the job," says Michael Giordano, a Vice President of Business affairs, "there’s no way we’re hiring a white male.” Giordano reveals Disney uses "code words and buzzwords" to avoid legal action and even mentions a candidate being rejected for not looking black enough. Giordano also admits Disney gives bonuses to executives for practicing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), agreeing that "diversity helps with financial incentives." Giordano further claims he’s been denied promotions due to his race.
