Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win Wisconsin in 32 years, and he narrowly lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton in Minnesota. Trump’s consistently low approval ratings and his trade policies, however, may have given Democrats renewed life.

An Israeli official said on condition of anonymity that an initial set of "understandings" had been reached with the help of Egypt and United Nations officials, leading to calm over the last several days and the opening of the crossing. Humanitarian issues in the blockaded Gaza Strip and the return of the soldiers can be addressed if calm is maintained, the official said, adding that if not, Israel would return to "aggressive" military action.

  • Venezuela abandons petrol subsidies as inflation set to hit one million per cent

    Golocal247.com news

    President Nicolas Maduro said Monday that some of the world's cheapest petrol that Venezuelan drivers enjoy will soon be sold at world market prices to combat rampant smuggling. "Gasoline must be sold at an international price to stop smuggling to Colombia and the Caribbean," Maduro said in a televised address. Venezuela, like most oil producing countries, has for decades subsidised fuel as a benefit to consumers. But its fuel prices have remained nearly flat for years despite hyperinflation that the International Monetary Fund has projected would reach 1 million per cent this year. That means that for the price of a cup of coffee, a driver can now fill the tank of a small SUV nearly 9,000 times. Recently, the average price of a coffee with milk was 2.2 million bolivars, or about 50 cents, local media has reported. Smugglers do brisk business reselling fuel in neighboring countries. Supporters of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro take part in a rally in Caracas on Monday Credit: FEDERICO PARRA/AFP Maduro said the government would still provide "direct subsidies" to citizens holding the "fatherland card," a state-issued identification card that the government uses to provide bonuses and track use of social services. He said the subsidy was only available to those who registered their cars in a vehicle census being conducted by the state.

  • At least 17 soldiers dead as Afghan army base overrun by Taliban

    Golocal247.com news

    Taliban fighters overran a northern Afghan army base, officials said Tuesday, killing at least 17 soldiers with dozens feared captured in a stinging blow to security forces already struggling to push insurgents from eastern Ghazni. The fall of the base in Ghormach district of volatile Faryab province came with security forces - who have struggled to hold back the Taliban since Nato combat troops pulled out in 2014 - already stretched by the days of fighting in Ghazni, a strategic provincial capital two hours from Kabul. Militants gained control of the base after days of heavy fighting, according to army spokesman for northern Afghanistan, Mohammad Hanif Rezaee. He said around 100 soldiers were on the base when it was first attacked Sunday. "It is a tragedy that the base fell to the enemy. Some soldiers were killed, some captured and some fled to nearby hills," Mr Rezaee told AFP. Afghan children ride in a vehicle as they flee their houses following heavy fighting in Ghazni Province Credit: REUTERS/Mohammad Ismail At least 17 were killed in the attack, according to defence ministry spokesman Ghafoor Ahmad Jawed, while a local MP said Taliban fighters captured another 40 in the base, known as Chenaya. "Preparations are underway to launch an operation to recapture the base," said the ministry's spokesman. Tahir Rehmani - head of Faryab's provincial council - said the base fell after the soldiers begged for reinforcements and air support from Kabul but were ultimately ignored. "They were too busy with Ghazni," said Mr Rehmani. Ghazni, further east and which the Taliban first assaulted late Thursday, remains in government hands, officials have said. But the insurgents appeared entrenched there Tuesday, according to residents who said they were burning buildings, killing civilians and firing on security forces conducting a clearing operation. Afghanistan puff Afghan security forces, beset by killings, desertions and under intense pressure, have been struggling to beat back insurgents since US-led Nato troops ended their combat mission in December 2014. The attack on Ghazni is the largest tactical onslaught by the Taliban since an unprecedented truce in June brought fighting between security forces and the Taliban to a brief stop, providing battle-worn Afghans some welcome relief. Analysts have said the insurgents may also be seeking to demonstrate strength as they come under increasing pressure since the ceasefire to join peace talks. The assault in Ghazni and the fall of the base also illustrate the challenges facing Afghan forces as they battle insurgents across the country, said analyst Abdul Hamid Sofof. "The Taliban know this and they make Afghan forces fight on several fronts, making them run thin and vulnerable to their mobile attacks," said Mr Sofof.

  • Ford to invest $740 million in Detroit train station, city development project

    Golocal247.com news

    Ford aims to turn the building into a campus of offices for up to 5,000 tech workers and software engineers focused on self-driving vehicles and ancillary technologies and services. The second largest U.S. automaker based in Dearborn, Michigan, about 10 miles from Detroit, announced the project in June, but had not previously disclosed costs until a community meeting on Tuesday. The company said Tuesday in a statement it is "working with federal, state and local economic development groups and officials, seeking at least $250 million in tax or other incentives to support the development of the five Corktown sites Ford has purchased." Ford said total investment in the development of the train station and developing 45 acres of vacant land will cost approximately $740 million over the next four years.

  • The website for Vermont's 14-year-old gubernatorial candidate has convinced me he's fit for the job

    Golocal247.com news

    Ethan Sonneborn is running for governor of Vermont. He's also 14 years old. This is perfectly legal, which he explains on his very adorable and surprisingly professional website. All that's required for someone to run for governor in Vermont is that they have lived in the state for a minimum of four years. For the skeptics, a link to the Vermont constitution is also provided on Sonneborn's website. Sonneborn, who is a Democrat, also runs down the issues that are important to him, such as LGBTQ rights, healthcare for all, the environment, economy, and education. Image: screengrab/ethansonneborn.comYou'll also find a YouTube video of Sonneborn delivering a speech that he gave this January, when he announced his campaign. He discusses his love of dogs, basketball, fishing — and his intention to run for governor. Maybe I'm just super burned out and disillusioned from the brutal political news cycle, but Sonneborn has me convinced he's the right person for the job. Sure he's not old enough to vote himself, but he believes in pushing a carbon emissions tax, so that's something? His website doesn't give a super-detailed explanation of how he's going to accomplish everything he stands for, but at least he stands for something. He's charming and he gives me hope for the future, so I'm choosing to believe in him. Vermont's Democratic primary is on Tuesday, if Sonneborn wins he'll be — you guessed it — the youngest governor in Vermont's history.
