Australia's ruling conservative coalition is set to secure a governing majority in its shock election victory over the centre-left Labor Party, the national broadcaster ABC projected Monday. Prime Minister Scott Morrison's Liberal-National coalition will hold at least 77 seats in the 151-member lower house, one more than needed to govern on its own, ABC's election analysts projected. The coalition will not hold a majority in the Senate, the upper house, meaning it will need the support of independents and minor parties to pass legislation. A number of close races across the vast island continent were still to be officially decided following Saturday's vote, with the formal count by the Australian Electoral Commission not expected to conclude until later this week. Among Morrison's first tasks following his victory was forming a new cabinet after several moderate ministers chose to retire from politics rather than contest the election. Morrison has indicated he will also make promised … [Read more...] about Australia’s conservatives secure majority government: ABC

PARIS: Amandine Henry was five when she first showed her potential at kicking a ball and, in the absence of any women's teams, her father signed her to play with the local boys.In the 24 years since, she has won 11 French titles and four Champions Leagues but those honours are likely to pale by comparison if she manages to lead hosts France to the title at the World Cup in July.The only woman in L'Equipe's list of 30 most influential personalities in French football, Henry has become one of the world's best defensive midfielders."Football made me as a woman, it helped me build my identity," the 29-year-old told TV5 Monde.The path from five-year-old taking on the boys to captain of Les Bleues was, as is the case for many women professionals, far from easy, though.At OSM Lomme, the club she joined at the age of 11 after another team had turned her down because of her gender, Henry had to fight for her place as she was the only girl."You have to earn respect on the pitch, and I often had … [Read more...] about Football: Henry equipped to lead Les Bleues to world title
By Russ Buettner The New York Times Susanne Craig Tues., May 7, 2019 By the time his master-of-the-universe memoir Trump: The Art of the Deal hit bookstores in 1987, Donald Trump was already in deep financial distress, losing tens of millions of dollars on troubled business deals, according to previously unrevealed figures from his federal income tax returns.
