  1. 'We retain absolute freedom of action,' Avigdor Lieberman says at northern border one day after Russian defense minister called Iran's presence 'legitimate' At the conclusion of a visit to Israel’s northern border, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday, “We will not allow a Shi’ite and Iranian [presence] to be established in Syria and will not permit all of Syria to be turned into a front-line position against the State of Israel. To really understand the Middle East – subscribe to Haaretz “Anyone who doesn’t understand this will find it worth his while to understand,” the defense minister added. “We retain absolute freedom of action. The only considerations guiding us are considerations regarding the security of the State of Israel.” Lieberman’s comments came a day after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called the Iranian presence in Syria “legitimate.” Russia had not committed itself to the withdrawal of pro-Iranian forces from Syria, the Russian foreign minister said. https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-1.823010
  2. A Norwegian school has ignited a controversy with its intention to insert verses from the Quran into its traditional Christmas recital. By its own admission, the school made this move to emphasize the fact that Jesus is also featured in the Muslim holy book. While Christmas recitals have traditionally had Christian content, Stigeråsen school in Skien, Norway, decided to digress from the established practice by citing two verses from the Quran. By using quotations from the centerpiece of Islam, the school admittedly wants to promote respect and understanding between different religious groups, the website Dokument.no revealed. https://sputniknews.com/viral/201711171059193639-norway-christmas-quran/

However, later on, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that the individual was not an employee of NATO. "I apologize for the offense that has been caused. The incidents were the result of an individual's actions and do not reflect the views of NATO. The individual in question was immediately removed from the exercise by the Joint Warfare Centre, and an investigation is underway. He was a civilian contractor seconded by Norway and not a NATO employee," Stoltenberg said in a statement, adding that the decision on any disciplinary action will be made by Norway. https://sputniknews.com/europe/201711171059192965-nato-serviceman-erdogan-enemy/

  5. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that the country’s troops have left ongoing NATO war games ahead of schedule, after his name appeared in an “enemy chart.” The move comes amid tensions between the US and Turkey within the military bloc. On Friday, the Turkish leader slammed an “incident” during NATO drills in Norway, in which Erdogan himself and Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who founded the modern Turkish state, were depicted in an “enemy chart.” "They used an enemy chart in Norway. In that chart, there was my name and [Mustafa Kemal] Ataturk's picture," the Turkish leader told his Justice and Development (AK) Party members, as cited by Turkish media. Erdogan said it was decided to withdraw all 40 Turkish soldiers from a NATO drill “immediately,” adding that even the removal of those names would not change the decision. “There can be no alliance like that," Erdogan said. https://www.rt.com/news/410169-turkey-withdraws-troops-nato-drills/

  10. Giselle, 19, put her virginity for sale on the notorious Cinderella Escorts website, which hosts listings from across the world. The American model says she put her first experience of sex up for sale so she can pay her tuition fees and go travelling. Back in April, a Hong Kong businessman paid $2.5 million for an 18-year-old Romanian model’s virginity. Just yesterday, we outlined that millions of millennials in the United States could be trading sex for their next debt servicing payment on a website called SeekingArrangement.com. As what we believe, the trend is clear and millennials are resorting to sex for a real simple get-out-of debt option or the chance for a better life, as their future economic prospects are quite dim. The latest demand for virgins is coming from a businessman in Abu Dhabi who has agreed to pay $2.9 million (€ 2.5million) for the virginity of a 19-year-old part time student and model living in California. The model named Giselle,19, is astounded by the overall outcome of the auction and says a Hollywood Actor and Russian Politician were also in the running. She says this is “a dream told true” and plans to use the money for — you guessed it— tuition fees and travel. Perhaps, she’ll be one of the few millennials enjoying avocado and toast for breakfast for the rest of her life. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-16/abu-dhabi-businessman-pays-29-million-19-year-old-models-virginity
  11. The US Department of Defense has announced about 3,000 additional American troops have been deployed to Afghanistan under President Donald Trump's new war strategy for the country. The Pentagon had previously said about 11,000 US forces were stationed Afghanistan. The new deployment has raised the number of American troops in the war-torn country to at least 14,000. "We've just completed a force flow into Afghanistan," Joint Staff Director Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie told reporters at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, on Thursday. "The new number for Afghanistan is now approximately 14,000. Might be a little above that, might be a little below that as we flex according to the mission,” he added. http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2017/11/16/542465/3000-more-US-troops-deployed-to-Afghanistan
  12. +snip+ WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators on Thursday approved the use of new technology that will improve picture quality on mobile phones, tablets and television, but also raises significant privacy concerns by giving advertisers dramatically more data about viewing habits. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to allow broadcasters to voluntarily use the new technology, dubbed ATSC 3.0, which would allow for more precise geolocating of television signals, ultra-high definition picture quality and more interactive programming, like new educational content for children and multiple angles of live sporting events. The system uses precision broadcasting and targets emergency or weather alerts on a street-by-street basis. The system could allow broadcasters to wake up a receiver to broadcast emergency alerts. The alerts could include maps, storm tracks and evacuation routes. The new standard would also let broadcasters activate a TV set that is turned off to send emergency alerts. Current televisions cannot carry the new signal and the FCC on Thursday said it was only requiring broadcasting both signals for five years after deploying the next-generation technology. Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc last month called the new standard “the Holy Grail” for the advertiser because it tells them who is watching and where. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-television-technology/fcc-approves-tv-technology-that-gives-better-pictures-but-less-privacy-idUSKBN1DG2XF
