This Chinese Province Has Made Protecting Pandas Its Mission

Love for giant pandas may be a global phenomenon, but in China’s Sichuan Province, home to the world’s largest giant panda sanctuaries, admiration for these charismatic animals goes much further. It has fully embraced its role as guardian of one of the world’s most adorable animals.

In August, the China Giant Panda Conservation and Protection Centre partnered with provincial and national agencies to host the first annual China Giant Panda International Culture Week, celebrating the panda, its cultural and historical significance in China, and the success of key conservation efforts.


The week-long event reinforced Sichuan’s long-standing commitment to protecting giant pandas, which, as of 2016, were officially moved off the endangered species list. Today, the province is home to more than 1,300 wild giant pandas and 460 in captivity.

The China Giant Panda International Culture Week kicks off what is certain to gain momentum as the event travels around the world, spreading global goodwill and further pride of guardianship for the Sichuan province.

At the event’s opening ceremony, it was made clear that big plans are in the works for the province, and that it is committed to ensuring that the giant panda will be around for generations to come.



Animal welfare workers save 71 beagles crammed in small home

Animal welfare workers removed 71 beagles from a cramped house in rural Pennsylvania, where officials say a woman had been breeding them without a license before she died last month.

The Lehigh County Humane Society got a call late Saturday night from police who responded to noise complaints at a home outside Allentown, said Barbara Morgan, the Humane Society's police officer.

The officers estimated about 25 dogs were inside the home. Four animal welfare workers and two trucks responded.

"Six hours later, we've removed 71 beagles," Morgan said, adding she had never seen so many animals squeezed into such a small space.

Many are sickly and underweight and all of the animals had fleas, she said. Several are showing symptoms of mange and others have vision issues and are possibly blind. They range in age from weeks old to senior-aged.

The dogs didn't initially belong to the man who owned the home, said Mary Shafer, the executive director of the county Humane Society. The man's companion had been breeding, kenneling and selling beagles, and acted as a beagle rescue, all without a license, Shafer said.

The woman passed away in September, leaving the man with the animals, she said. He will likely face charges.

The dogs are being evaluated and information on adoption will be available in coming days. Until then, the shelter is in need of donations to help care for them, including wet food, towels, sheets and leashes.

"It is beagle-mania here right now," said Morgan.

The shelter typically handles 200 animals at a time, and the influx of beagles has overwhelmed the large dog area of the non-profit shelter, Morgan said.

Just bathing them, clipping their nails and separating the ill from the healthy has been a challenge. Eventually all the dogs will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

"It is really stressing for staff, but they've told me this is why they are here and they appreciate being able to help," Shafer said.



Who is Jack Brooksbank, the wine merchant fiancé of Princess Eugenie?
The Telegraph Rosa Silverman,The Telegraph

He was working as a waiter in a cocktail bar when he met her. But it was no rags to riches story for Jack Brooksbank, who is set to marry Princess Eugenie this Friday October 12.

Educated at Stowe School in Buckingham, where boarding fees are currently almost £12,000 per term, Brooksbank, 31, is a descendant of the Brooksbank baronets and reportedly a distant cousin of Eugenie’s. (Her mother, the Duchess of York, is the great-great-granddaughter of Lady Julia Coke, who is the daughter of Jack's great-great-grandfather, Thomas Coke.)

Son of George Brooksbank, 68, a chartered accountant and company director, and his wife Nicola, 64, Jack has a younger brother called Thomas, 29 - a possible candidate for best man. Since 2001, the family address has been an apartment in a gated period conversion in Wandsworth, not far from Battersea Park.

Brooksbank was introduced to Eugenie, the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, during a ski holiday in Verbier, Switzerland and the couple have been together for more than six years.

Back then, Eugenie was studying English literature, history of art and politics at Newcastle University and Brooksbank is said to have been waiting tables and serving drinks at Devonshire Terrace, a bar and restaurant near Liverpool Street in London.

Having left school in the mid-noughties, he had given university a miss, choosing instead to launch himself straight into a career in hospitality.

He went on to work at Chelsea’s Admiral Codrington pub, from where he was poached by businessman and nightclub owner Piers Adam and employed by the Markham Inn nearby.

“At the Markham Inn, I had to deal with lots of strange people, and everyone was demanding,” he once said of his experience there. “I also got to know the locals, which I loved.”

These included Prince Harry and his close friend Guy Pelly who, according to Tatler, “pulled him into the Mahiki set”.

He went on to manage the Mayfair nightclub, a favourite among royalty and celebrities, and also owned by Adam.

Then, in August 2016, he set up his own company, Jack Brooksbank Limited, a wine wholesaler.

He is described by those who know him as “kind and selfless” and a perfect match for Eugenie.

Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, a friend of the couple, tells the Telegraph: “Never have I known a couple with so much lust for life, who light up every room they enter with joy, laughter and unprecedented warmth. I’m sure you’ll hear this a lot but Jack possesses one of the most infectious laughs you’ll hear, and you will hear it!!

“It has been a pleasure watching their relationship grow over the years, two people who enjoy each other’s company so much. They are two of the kindest, [most] selfless and sensitive people I know. In that they have met their match.”

But Brooksbank hasn’t entirely avoided scandal.

In 2013, a tabloid newspaper reported that explicit photographs of him touching the naked breasts of a stripper while blindfolded and covered in candle wax during his 21st birthday celebrations had been leaked online. The pictures were quickly removed from the internet after they had been discovered.

“As a mother, I have found the stories and scenes of children affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia utterly heartbreaking,” she wrote.

“They need our help. That’s why we are launching a special appeal – please support it if you can.”

Kate Middleton Exudes Sophistication at Museum Exhibit Opening

Rachel McRady‍ & Liz Calvario‍,Entertainment Tonight 7 hours ago

Let's hope Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are all in bed, because mom is out on the town!

Kate Middleton stepped out on Wednesday night in London for the opening of the Victoria & Albert Museum's Photography Centre.

The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge, who majored in art history in school, made her second official solo royal visit at the popular British museum since her maternity leave ended. After rewearing a gorgeous lavender frock the day before, the mother of three opted for a sophisticated off-the shoulder plaid dress designed by Erdem that featured a plum belt, detailed buttons and a flared skirt. She paired the ensemble with black velvet pumps, a box clutch and beautiful and unique pearl and diamond earrings.

The exhibit is titled Collecting Photography: From Daguerreotype to Digital and follows the medium's invention to the present day. Kate will meet with several curators who worked on the exhibit before unveiling a plaque to commemorate the opening.

The mother of three, who is a royal patron of the museum, has attended several V&A events over the years, and in June 2017, she even helped to open the museum's expansion.

Earlier this week, Middleton was joined by her husband, Prince William, at the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit together in London. The couple has another big event to attend this Friday -- the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and her fiance, Jack Brooksbank.

On Wednesday, it was announced that William and Kate's eldest children, 5-year-old Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, would be page boy and bridesmaid in the event at Windsor, England.



Trump: 'The Fed has gone crazy' with interest rate hikes

As the Federal Reserve tightens monetary policy with its steady pace of interest rate hikes, President Donald Trump continues to criticize the central bank.

“I think the Fed has gone crazy,” President Donald Trump said. Trump made the remarks after stepping off Air Force One in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he is due to hold a “Make America Great Again” rally.

His comments follow a volatile day of trading in the stock markets. At market close on Wednesday, the Dow (^DJI) lost 3.15%, or 831.83 points, and the S&P 500 (^GSPC) fell 3.29%, or 94.66 points.

Experts attribute at least some of the decline to the recent rapid rise in Treasury yields.

“I think the Fed is making a mistake,” Trump said according to CNBC. “They are so tight.”

As far as the market selloff itself is concerned, Trump didn’t seem too surprised.

“It’s a correction that we’ve been waiting for for a long time,” he said. “But I really disagree with what the Fed is doing.”
Trump’s criticism of the Fed is not new

Just a day earlier, Trump said he did not like the Fed’s path on monetary policy, criticizing the central bank for moving too quickly with interest rate increases.

“I think we don’t have to go as fast,” Trump reportedly said. “I like low interest rates.”

In September, the Fed raised interest rates by 25 basis points for the third time in 2018, raising the target range for its benchmark rate to 2%-2.25%.

At the time, Trump bashed the rate hike, adding that he would “rather pay down debt or do other things.”

The Fed, which is statutorily independent of the executive branch, has not faced significant political pressure in many decades, although the Richard Nixon administration is on record as having a heavy hand over the Arthur Burns-run Fed in the 1970s.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell has long maintained that the central bank needs to remain independent from political pressure in order to see its dual mandate through.

“We must not forget the lessons of the past, when a lack of central bank independence led to episodes of runaway inflation and subsequent economic contractions,” Powell said at a central banking conference in May.

Princess Eugenie Wore the Chillest Wedding Hairstyle of All the Royal Brides

From Marie Claire

The big day is officially here: Princess Eugenie, the Queen’s granddaughter, is finally marrying her fiancé Jack Brooksbank. And already, the 28-year-old is proving that this royal wedding is not like any of the royal weddings we’ve seen-at least, not in terms of her Eugenie's bridal hairstyle. Because the princess just showed up with the most gorgeous, soft hairstyle that I want to copy ASAP.

The Look

Already this week, Eugenie has shocked the world (or, at the very least, every single beauty editor) by dyeing her brunette hair a bright auburn shade just 24 hours before her wedding, leading everyone to wonder what, exactly, she’d have in store for her hair today. But Eugenie chose to stick with a classic style, opting for a glossy chignon with soft, wispy layers around her face, giving the whole look a super chill, romantic feel.

However, Eugenie’s style wasn’t completely off the cuff-her hair looks remarkably similar to Meghan Markle’s wedding hairstyle that she wore to her May 19 wedding earlier this year, specifically in terms of the sleek, straight center part.
Of course, there’s only so much you can do, in terms of styling, when you’re working with a tiara, especially a tiara that’s straight from the Queen's vault and was originally created in 1921. You definitely don’t need your hair upstaging your crown, or vice versa.

Though there’s no word, yet, on who styled Princess Eugenie’s hair for her big day, I’m sure it’ll only be a matter of time before the hairstylist is revealed and, hopefully, some behind-the-scenes details on how this whole look came together.

For comparison, check out the hairstyles Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton wore for their weddings, below. Note: Both women decided to wear veils for their weddings-something Eugenie chose to skip for her own big day, presumably so it wouldn't hide the scoliosis scars on her back that she was proudly showing off.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Did the Cutest Thing When They Shared Their First Married Kiss

From Cosmopolitan

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are officially married! The two got hitched this morning in Windsor Chapel after getting engaged this spring. Their first kiss was, unsurprisingly, super adorable.

Before they kissed, they shared the cutest look with one another. I mean, they look SO in love and it's almost enough to warm the coldest, most dead of hearts.
So cute, so charming, so married. And then an adorable kiss, obviously.
And here they are walking down the stairs together.
The two got married this morning in Windsor Chapel, which is the same place Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married in May. When Meghan and Harry went to have their first kiss, Meghan famous asked him "Do we kiss now?" and it was, simply put, incredible.

After Jack and Eugenie left the chapel, they got in a covered carriage to leave Windsor Chapel and head to their reception. They would have ridden in an open carriage like Meghan and Harry, but the wind was too strong, so they opted for the covered carriage.

Congrats to the Brooksbanks!



Princess Eugenie's Mother Fergie Lets Out a Huge Sigh of Relief After Daughter Says 'I Do'

Princess Eugenie's mother, Sarah Ferguson, let her feelings be known with one exhale.

The mother of the bride was very boisterous while greeting fans, family and friends outside St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in Windsor, England, on Friday, but once her 28-year-old daughter said "I do" to her groom, Jack Brooksbank, it was clear Fergie had been feeling the nerves that come with being part of such a big event.

Seated next to her oldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, cameras caught Fergie breathing a huge sigh of relief after the ceremony was all over. She chuckled a bit while waving to someone in the congregation.

Fergie, who was married to Eugenie and Beatrice's father, Prince Andrew, from 1986 to 1996, turned heads long before the wedding was over, thanks to her standout style. The 58-year-old Duchess of York arrived at the ceremony with Beatrice and wore an emerald green dress by local Windsor company Emma Louise Design that paired perfectly with the bride's emerald tiara that was borrowed from Queen Elizabeth II. Fergie paired her dress with a vintage Manolo Blahnik bag and a matching green hat that featured a gold band along the brim that jetted out in the back.

Months prior to her daughter's big day, Fergie admitted that she was already getting emotional. “I do understand why mothers cry at weddings now,” she said while on BBC’s The One Show. “All my life I’ve thought, ‘What’s she crying for? It’s lovely, it’s a great day.’ But it’s just your little one!”

During the interview, she also gushed over the groom. “The good news is Jack, he works as the European Manager for Casamigos Tequila, so I’m perfect,” she joked. “He’ll just hand me the two liter and say, ‘OK, mother-in-law, down it!’”

As for the advice she'd give Jack about joining the royal family, Fergie shared, "The thing about Andrew and I is that we go with our hearts. We go with the family unity. You can see that. That’s all about seeing the light in life. Jack is really an amazing bringer of light. He brings joy. I just say to Jack, always just, ‘Stay yourself.’”



Prince Andrew Made Everyone at Princess Eugenie's Wedding Reception Cry


Prince Andrew proudly stepped into the role of supportive father to his younger daughter Princess Eugenie today. He began, of course, by walking her down the aisle to Jack Brooksbank.

"It's a very small role, I just have to walk slowly. I haven't been the father of a bride so I don't know what to expect, but I'm looking forward to it," he said in an interview on British television earlier today. "I'll have to walk on the left of the carpet to make sure that she can get enough room. That's a lesson I got from my wedding. My father-in-law walked down the middle so Sarah said 'Get over to the other side.'"

The Duke of York learned his lesson well and helped arrange the lengthy train of his daughter's dress before guiding her through St. George's Chapel. But he had another important role to play, this time at the reception at Windsor Castle. Following the ceremony and the couple's carriage ride through Windsor, the Queen hosted wedding guests for a daytime party at Windsor Castle.

Wedding cake was served and family members gave speeches. According to Hello, Andrew gave a charming and funny speech that ranged from childhood stories to current events. He moved the crowd to tears, apparently, when he approached the groom in person.

"The one thing that made me cry was the Duke," the guest said, "when he said he was going to do something he's never done before; he went over to his new son-in-law and hugged him. He isn't a very tactile person."

Another reception guest also told Hello that Jack gave a touching speech as well in which he opened up about this feelings for his new bride. "For a young man of 32 to be that open about his emotions, was quite affecting," said Anthony Wallersteiner, who has a connection to both the bride and the groom. He was Jack's headmaster at the Stowe school, and is now chair of Street Child, the charity with which both the Duchess of York and her two daughters are heavily involved.

"He talked about how she is the one light of his life. She makes him complete and he can't imagine spending a day apart. Everyone cried-Eugenie's eyes went too. I mean she wasn't sobbing. It was just lovely, sweet, short and modern."

At one point, excitement got the better of Jack and he got up on a chair-until a wedding guest reminded him he was in the Queen's house. "Someone yelled over that he should get off the chair, so then he jumped back down again."



Eugenie and Jack's love story began almost eight years ago, when the princess was just 21 years old. The couple met during a ski trip in Verbier, Switzerland, and the two then made their public debut in June 2011, when they attended the Royal Ascot together. Now, they will embark on the next chapter of their lives as a married couple, and we're already looking forward to seeing more of them!

Jack Brooksbank and Princess Eugenie might have dated for seven years before they officially tied the knot on Friday, but their romance was more alive than ever at St. George's Chapel. The moment Eugenie entered the ceremony with her father, Prince Andrew, all heads turned to the bride, while Jack adorably put on his glasses so he could see his bride clearly. The first words that came out of his mouth upon seeing Eugenie? "Oh, my heart. . . Oh, break my heart," he said, according to the Daily Mail's lip-reader.

This isn't the first time a choked-up groom had the internet swooning over his first words for his bride. It was just a few months ago when everyone collectively freaked out over Prince Harry's infamous lip bite as he told Meghan Markle, "you look amazing," during their wedding in May. It was a gorgeous ceremony and a beautiful moment for Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack. Read on to witness the emotional first moment Jack saw Eugenie (around the 0:15 mark), and see how stunning the couple looked on their big day.



Air Canada's near miss last year was almost 'worst accident in history'
AFP AFP Sat, Oct 13 3:58 AM GMT+3

Washington (AFP) - A near miss involving an Air Canada plane which almost landed on a crowded taxiway instead of a runway at San Francisco airport last year could have been the "worst aviation accident in history," according to an official report.

The Air Canada Airbus A320 carrying 140 people was cleared to land on Runway 28-Right at San Francisco International Airport shortly before midnight on July 7, 2017 -- but the pilot inadvertently lined up for Taxiway C, where four planes were waiting to take off.

"Only a few feet of separation prevented this from possibly becoming the worst aviation accident in history," said Bruce Landsberg, vice chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board while announcing the agency's report issued Friday.

"The incident airplane descended to an altitude of 100 ft (30 meters) above ground level and overflew the first airplane on the taxiway," the report said.

"The incident flight crew initiated a go-around, and the airplane reached a minimum altitude of about 60 ft and overflew the second airplane on the taxiway before starting to climb," it added, noting none of the five flight crewmembers or 135 passengers aboard the Air Canada plane were injured.

The report said the flight crew's misidentification of the taxiway as the intended runway "resulted from the crewmembers' lack of awareness of the parallel runway closure due to their ineffective review of notice to airmen (NOTAM) information before the flight and during the approach briefing."

Other contributing factors were "the flight crew's failure to tune the instrument landing system frequency for backup lateral guidance, expectation bias, fatigue due to circadian disruption and length of continued wakefulness, and breakdowns in crew resource management."

An audio recording of the radio exchanges between air traffic control and the pilot of Air Canada flight 759 was posted online shortly after the incident.

Just moments after receiving permission to land on the designated runway, the Air Canada pilot returned to the radio sensing that something was amiss.

"Uh, Tower, I just want to confirm -- this is Air Canada 759 -- we see some lights on the runway there, across the runway, can you confirm we're clear to land?"

The tower responded: "Air Canada 759 confirmed clear to land Runway 28-Right. There is no one on 28-Right but you."

"OK, Air Canada 759," the pilot replied.

An unidentified man's voice then broke in -- presumably a pilot in one of the aircraft waiting to take off. "Where's this guy going? He's on the taxiway," he said.

Air traffic control immediately told the Air Canada pilot not to land.

"Air Canada go around," the tower said.

"In the go-around, Air Canada 759," the pilot responded.

The pilot of a United Airlines plane on the ground told the tower meanwhile that "Air Canada flew directly over us."

"Yeah, I saw that guys," the tower replied.

See Princess Eugenie's Dazzling Reception Dress

The 28-year-old royal definitely went for a more casual look.

Princess Eugenie switched it up for her wedding reception!

The 28-year-old royal stunned in an elegant off-the-shoulder Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos gown when she said "I do" to Jack Brooksbank at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on Friday, but for her reception, she chose something a little more casual.

As seen in her official wedding photos, which were taken by Alex Bramall and released on Saturday, Eugenie changed into a silk Zac Posen number for her evening reception at her father's residence at Royal Lodge. According to a press release, Posen was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the surrounding countryside when designing Eugenie's dress. The dress' color reflects the blush of an English Rose, while the White Rose of York is embroidered on both the shoulder and back of the gown, holding together the cape.

Eugenie wore diamond and emerald earrings, which were a wedding gift from her new husband, as well as a hair slide belonging to her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
