British PM Arrives In South Africa

British Prime Minister Theresa May and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa attend the SS Mendi bell ceremony on August 28, 2018 in Cape Town.

British Prime Minister Theresa May began her tour of three African countries in South Africa, where she held an interactive session with school children, business leaders and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa in Cape Town.

In her address, May spoke about increased international cooperation for global development, building stronger and more stable African economies, and the UK's ambition to be the leading African investor among the countries. G7 by 2022.

"By 2022, I want the UK to become the number one G7 investor in Africa, with British private sector companies taking the lead," May told Cape Town leaders.

The major industrialized G7 countries do not include China, which has become a major investor on the African continent.

Her tour of South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya - the first in May in Africa since she became first in 2016 - is seen as an effort to strengthen Britain's global ambitions after Brexit.

"I want to create a new partnership between the UK and our friends in Africa, built around shared prosperity and shared security," she added.

May faces pressure at home from the so-called skeptical remains about its ability to enter into trade deals when Britain breaks relations with the EU, as well as Brexite fearing not to break completely .

On his trip to South Africa, May suggested to the British traveling press that a Brexit without a transaction would not be a disaster for Britain and would minimize warnings of serious consequences for the British economy.

Dance steps

Former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, whose July departure from the government put May's government on the edge, said in his resignation speech that current Brexit policy would hinder London's ability to conclude trade agreements independent.

But May said Britain was well positioned and that many companies were ready to invest in Africa.

On Tuesday, she announced a new investment program in Africa of four billion pounds ($ 5 billion / 4.4 billion). There were no immediate details of the initiative.

May added that Britain would also hold an investment summit in Africa next year and open new diplomatic missions across the continent.

The Prime Minister had already attracted mixed reviews for his hesitant dance steps as she was greeted by students singing during a visit to a school in Cape Town.

May also presented to President Cyril Ramaphosa the bell of the Mendi ship, which sank in the Channel in 1917, drowning more than 600 soldiers, mainly South African, who were to join the Allied forces fighting during the First World War.

It was the worst maritime disaster in South Africa's history and became the symbol of its sacrifice for the Great War.

The bell was given to a BBC reporter in 2017 following anonymous advice.

Ramaphosa described the gift of the bell as "the return of their souls to the land of their birth".

South Africa calls for a smooth Brexit

After talks with May, the president, who came to power this year, praised Britain's role in securing $ 100 billion in foreign investment to boost South Africa's economy and rise in unemployment.

But he also added that he hoped that Britain would soon conclude the Brexit negotiations in a way "that restores stability in the economic and financial markets ... because their exit also has an impact on our economy" .

May was expected to visit Robben Island later, where former President Nelson Mandela was jailed for decades to commemorate the centenary of his birth.

May will visit Nigeria Wednesday for talks with President Muhammadu Buhari in the capital Abuja and with victims of modern slavery in Lagos.

On Thursday, she will meet with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta shortly after his return from US President Donald Trump to Washington.

The Prime Minister will also see British troops in training and visit a business school, before concluding the trip at a state dinner hosted by Kenyatta.

London and Brussels have yet to reach an agreement on Britain's exit conditions from the EU in March.

Chelsea Owner 'Puts Club For Sale

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich hired New York-based bank Raine Group in anticipation of the club's sale, according to the Sunday Times.

The bank reportedly valued the club at £ 2bn and Chelsea hired its advisors after they helped Manchester City sell a 13% stake in the club to China Media Capital for £ 265m in 2015.

It is unclear whether they would seek out new owners or sell a stake in the club that Abramovich bought for £ 140m in 2003, but this decision comes at a critical time for Chelsea, who is overwhelmed by the wealth of clubs such as Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain.

In May, as a result of Britain's political sanctions against Russia in response to Salisbury's poisoning, Chelsea announced that Abramovich was delaying Stamford Bridge's proposed expansion of 500 million pounds.

They failed to qualify for the Champions League for the second time in three years, after qualifying for the competition each year since Abramovich took office.

Serena Williams Shares Her Experience With little Daughter

Serena Williams is looking for a little maternal support. She put the word on Twitter using #ThisMama, asking other moms and dads to tell how the kids humiliated them.

Even Serena Williams, one of the most prominent work mothers, can not escape the anxiety parents feel when they fly with young children.

Williams, 36, who returns to the US Open Monday for the first time since her daughter Olympia, has had her own heartbreaking adventure with babies.

Using the #ThisMama hashtag, Williams took Twitter to remember flying with his 11-month-old daughter, Olympia Olympian Ohanian Jr.

"The other day, on a return flight, Olympia insisted on getting up and down the aisle and when I finally sat her down she threw up on me," tweeted Williams.

China to Scrap Limit On Number Of Children Couples Can Have

China appears to be on the verge of reducing the number of children couples can have, an official newspaper citing a draft civil code that would put an end to decades of controversial family planning policies.

The far-reaching code would eliminate a policy imposed through fines, but was also notorious for cases of forced abortion and sterilization in the most populous country in the world.

The Procuratorate Daily said the code omitted any reference to "family planning" - the current policy that restricts couples from having more than two children.

The draft code would be submitted to a vote in the Legislative Assembly, the National People's Congress, in 2020.

The Communist Party began in 1979 to implement a one-child policy to slow population growth. The limit was raised to two children in 2016 as the country strives to rejuvenate its aging population by about 1.4 billion.

There is concern that aging and shrinking labor forces will slow down the economy, while gender imbalances could lead to social problems.

Man ASSAULTS Barber After Getting Dodgy Haircut In Germany

A 34-year-old German was apparently so appalled by his height that he used pepper spray on his hairdresser.

The man, whose identity has not been revealed, is said to be ruminating after being cut on Wednesday in Bremen.

He left early but was so annoyed that he decided to come back, the police said.

The man then went to his 52-year-old hairdresser, sprinkled him, then showed him his middle finger.

He then skated but the police quickly caught him and he was arrested.

A 23-year-old staff member was reportedly injured after being caught in the cross fire of pepper spray.

The man faces a charge of assault and may also be charged with violating the Explosives Act after the police found a firecracker in his possession.

Spanish police seize pineapples stuffed with cocaine

Spanish police said on Monday (August 27th) that they had seized 67 kg of cocaine in dozens of pineapples cut from the main fruit and vegetable market in Madrid.

The stuffed fruits were found on the sprawling market of Mercamadrid, among a cargo of pineapple arrived by boat from Costa Rica in the Portuguese port of Setubal, then transported by land to the Spanish capital, police said in a statement .

Each pineapple was "perfectly hollowed out and filled with compact cylinders" containing 800 g to 1 kg of cocaine and covered with wax or yellow paraffin to conceal "the odors of the chemicals contained in the drug and prevent its detection".

Police arrested seven people in the operation - three in Madrid and four in Barcelona - suspected of playing a role in the cocaine smuggling operation.

Spain, with its historical and linguistic ties to South America, is the main point of entry into Europe for cocaine from the continent, mainly from Colombia.

Smugglers often use creative methods to obtain medicines beyond Spanish customs.
