first Hong Kong protests

Legislators in Hong Kong are currently abstaining from a debate on a controversial bill that would allow refugees to be extradited to China after protesters blocked roads and public buildings today. They raised quite a lot of downtown Hong Kong in sleep mode. The police responded by shooting rubber balls and tear gas at the demonstrators. Critics in the bill say it will make anyone in Hong Kong susceptible to being arrested and sent to mainland China for political reasons. They also say it is undermining Hong Kong's semi-autonomous legal system. Chinese officials say the bill only plugs some loophole in the country's extradition law.

2nd Campaign 2020

Are we already getting a general preview? It certainly felt yesterday in Iowa, where President Trump and ex-vice president Joe Biden (who is also the democratic front runner) held dueling events in the early voting. Everything became an insulting party, with Biden, who kicked off a three-stop swing, and called Trump an "existential threat" to the country, while Trump stepped out his old "Sleepy Joe" moniker. It is clear that the president is focused on Biden because the former battle represents the most formidable threat to Trump's re-election chances.

3. Energy

America's renewable energy sector reached a great milestone earlier this spring. For the first time, the sector – which includes sun, water, wind and geothermal steam – has slightly higher energy capacity than coal. Renewable energy sources also generated more electricity than coal in April, although it was partly achieved by seasonal problems. The milestones reflect the reduced costs for sun and wind and continued environmental considerations for coal. The US also lowers its use of coal. Since the peak in 2008, the country's carbon consumption has decreased by 39% to the lowest level in 40 years.

4th Tropical Cyclone Vayu

People in northwestern India are out of the way because the strongest storm threatens this part of India decades against them. Almost 300,000 people will be evacuated before Tropical Cyclone Vayu, which is expected to land in Gujarat tomorrow. The storm is expected to have winds of about 110 km / h when it hits, which corresponds to a border line category 2 to 3 hurricane in the Atlantic. The Gujarat State had not had a storm this strong hit since 1998, when a tropical cyclone with winds of 120 mph killed about 10,000 people.

5th Women 's World Cup

Did the Team USA go too far when it crushed Thailand in the biggest blow in World Cup history? United States Women's National Team set a scoring record when there were Thailand 13-0. Team USA, which is benefiting from winning the entire tournament, scored just after 12 minutes and did not release the rest of the match. American players celebrated each goal and criticized social media. When it was over, Thailand's players were in tears. The American team was accused of damaging the Thai players, but Alex Morgan, a US striker, said it was important to make as many goals as possible if goal difference later becomes a factor in the group stage.
