Sentencing for Ex-National Security Adviser Set

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has a sentencing date.

A judge Wednesday scheduled Flynn’s sentencing for Dec. 18, more than a year after he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

The move comes just days after prosecutors working for special counsel Robert Mueller said they were ready for Flynn’s case to conclude after months of delays.

Flynn has been a key cooperator in the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, but prosecutors have yet to detail the extent of the information he shared.

The retired U.S. Army lieutenant general was a senior Trump campaign surrogate and later served briefly as national security adviser.

He was forced to resign in February 2017.

Report: Extreme Poverty Declining Worldwide 

The world is making progress in its efforts to lift people out of extreme poverty, but the global aspiration of eliminating such poverty by 2030 is unattainable, a new report found.

A World Bank report released Wednesday says the number of people living on less than $1.90 per day fell to a record low of 736 million, or 10 percent of the world’s population, in 2015, the latest year for which data is available.

The figure was less than the 11 percent recorded in 2013, showing slow but steady progress.

“Over the last 25 years, more than a billion people have lifted themselves out of extreme poverty, and the global poverty rate is now lower than it has ever been in recorded history. This is one of the greatest human achievements of our time,” World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim said.

“But if we are going to end poverty by 2030, we need much more investment, particularly in building human capital, to help promote the inclusive growth it will take to reach the remaining poor,” he warned. “For their sake, we cannot fail.”

Poverty levels dropped across the world, except in the Middle East and North Africa, where civil wars spiked the extreme poverty rate from 9.5 million people in 2013 to 18.6 million in 2015.

The highest concentration of extreme poverty remained in sub-Saharan Africa, with 41.1 percent, down from 42.5 percent. South Asia showed the greatest progress with poverty levels dropping to 12.4 percent from 16.2 percent two years earlier.

The World Bank’s preliminary forecast is that extreme poverty has declined to 8.6 percent in 2018.

About half the nations now have extreme poverty rates of less than 3 percent, which is the target set for 2030. But the report said that goal is unlikely to be met.

Celebrity Chef in Hot Water for Hosting Venezuela’s Maduro

A Turkish celebrity chef with restaurants all over the world is coming under attack after he posted videos on social media of Venezuelan President Nicola Maduro feasting at his Istanbul restaurant amid claims that people in Venezuela are going hungry because of an ongoing economic crisis. 

Dozens of Venezuelans protested outside chef Nusret Gokce’s Miami restaurant on Wednesday, even after the videos were deleted Tuesday from Instagram.  Protesters, some draped in the Venezuelan flag, chanted and sang the Venezuelan national anthem, trying to deter diners from entering the upscale steakhouse in Miami’s Brickell financial district.

Others so overwhelmed the restaurant’s Yelp online review site with negative comments that the comments section was taken offline for an undetermined amount of time. 

One video showed Gokce, also known as “Salt Bae,” carving meat for the president and his wife, Cilia Flores, at the Nusr-Et restaurant in Istanbul, where each cut of meat can cost hundreds of dollars. 

Another showed Maduro puffing on a cigar from a box bearing his name. 

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio slammed the chef Tuesday.

“I don’t know who this weirdo #Saltbae is, but the guy he is so proud to host is not the President of #Venezuela. He is actually the overweight dictator of a nation where 30% of the people eat only once a day & infants are suffering from malnutrition,” Rubio tweeted Tuesday.

Opposition leader Julio Borges, who lives in exile in Colombia, tweeted: “While Venezuelans suffer and die of hunger, Nicolas Maduro and Cilia Flores have a good time in one of the most expensive restaurants in the world, all with money stolen from the Venezuelan people.”

But Maduro remained unrepentant for the extravagant outing. After returning home to Caracas, he said, “I send greetings from here to our friend Nusret. Comrade, soon I’ll return to Istanbul so we can see one another again. Thanks for the gifts.”

The once-wealthy oil-producing nation has been in an economic crisis for the past five years. The turmoil has left many Venezuelans struggling to find food and medicine and forced masses of people to flee to other South American countries.

According to the United Nations, more than 2 million Venezuelans have fled since 2014. 

A Meganalisis poll published in the Miami Herald last month found more than 30 percent of Venezuelans say they only ate one meal a day. Nearly the same number report eating “nothing or close to nothing” at least one day a week. A staggering 78 percent said they had trouble finding enough food.

МОЗ зафіксувала новий випадок ботулізму

Міністерство охорони здоров’я України зафіксувало новий випадок ботулізму.

«У місті Дніпро зафіксовано новий випадок захворювання на ботулізм. Занедужала жінка 49 років після вживання в’яленої риби власного приготування. Наразі вона перебуває у важкому стані в реанімації», – заявили в Центрі громадського здоров’я МОЗ України.

Згідно з повідомленням, із початку 2018 року станом на 19 вересня від ботулізму постраждали 97 людей, вісім із них померли.

Ботулізм – це тяжке харчове отруєння, зумовлене споживанням продуктів, що містять ботулотоксини. Збудник хвороби розмножується в анаеробному стані (без доступу кисню) за неправильних умов зберігання чи транспортування продуктів харчування. У МОЗ рекомендують утримуватися від вживання їжі, про якість якої споживачу достеменно невідомо.
