Facebook has closed 23 mostly pro-government pages in Italy which were spreading fake news and anti-immigrant content, after an investigation by Avaaz, the civil rights group said on Monday.

More than half of the pages, which had a total of almost 2.5 million followers, supported the far-right anti-immigrant League party or the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, which form the ruling coalition, Avaaz said in a statement.

A number of gay rights activists have been arrested after clashing with police at an unauthorised pride march in Cuba's capital, Havana.

Saturday's event followed the unexpected cancellation by the communist authorities of the country's 12th annual march against homophobia.

Activists condemned the move and then organised their own demonstration, largely through social media.

Marching in Cuba without permission can be met with a strong police response.

>Former Google boss Eric Schmidt has defended the company’s record on multiple controversies: its work in China, its treatment of women, and its tax affairs.

The 64-year-old executive, who sits on the board at Google’s parent company, Alphabet, said the tech giant was right to pursue opportunities in China, despite heavy criticism from senior US officials.

"The world is a very interconnected place,” Mr Schmidt told BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis.

>Spiders, millipedes, cockroaches, beetles, flies and wasps that would have lived on the forest floor, found inside it

A 99-million-year-old ammonite trapped in amber has been discovered for the first time.

Found in northern Myanmar, it contains at least 40 other creatures, including spiders, millipedes, cockroaches, beetles, flies and wasps that would have lived on the forest floor.

Ammonites are extinct sea-dwelling relatives of squid. It is incredibly rare to find sea life trapped in amber because the fossilized resin is produced by land-based trees.

A veteran Palestinian negotiator said on Monday she had been denied a U.S. travel visa for the first time and viewed it as retaliation for her criticism of the Trump administration and Israel.

Asked about Hanan Ashrawi’s allegations, a U.S. State Department official did not comment directly but said visas are not refused on the grounds of an applicant’s politics if those political statements or views would be lawful in the United States.

>Controversial pastor Steven L Anderson has already been banned from most EU countries

An American preacher with extreme anti-gay and anti-Semitic views has become the first person ever banned from Ireland by exclusion powers dating from 1999.

Steven L Anderson, a Baptist pastor based in Arizona, came to public prominence in 2009 when telling his congregation he had prayed for the death of the President.

More people will die of preventable cancers and heart conditions because of the government’s failure to address “appalling” flaws in screening programmes, experts have warned.

A damning report by MPs on the Public Accounts Committee found not one adult screening programme in England met its minimum target for health checks.

Some 1.25 million women last year were forced to wait too long for cervical cancer screening results, with uptake at the scans standing at a 21-year low.

An American explorer has found plastic waste on the seafloor while breaking the record for the deepest ever dive.

Victor Vescovo descended nearly 11km (seven miles) to the deepest place in the ocean - the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench.

He spent four hours exploring the bottom of the trench in his submersible, built to withstand the immense pressure of the deep.

He found sea creatures, but also found a plastic bag and sweet wrappers.

It is the third time humans have reached the ocean's extreme depths.

Senator Josh Hawley has announced that he is introducing a bill to the Senate floor that will ban loot boxes and pay to win microtransaction in video games that are “played by minors.” This bill targets games that are played by those under 18.

The bill is called “The Protecting Children from Abusive Games Act.”

“When a game is designed for kids, game developers shouldn’t be allowed to monetize addiction,” Hawley said. “And when kids play games designed for adults, they should be walled off from compulsive microtransactions. Game developers who knowingly exploit children should face legal consequences.”

So are these games full of microtransactions fun or not? It sounds like you are confused. I certainly do not buy them and feel no regret about it.

>ignoring that increasing the amounts of profit to be derived from games makes them into a soulless, shitty and ultimately dead industry.

of course and regulation never kills an industry while at the same time making it impossible to resurrect because retards demanded the government get involved? You are just another SJW demanding regulation where it is not needed. If the industry did not feel pain over the micro transactions they would not be losing their shit over being accused of including them like they do today.

You admit yourself that you don't buy games with microtransactions, because they are shit. Imagine if we were in a world without casual faggots who'd buy the games anyway, and people were forced to develop games instead of muh cinematic experiences, muh battle royale, lootboxes, and dog knows what else. I support the law on that ground alone, that maybe by decreasing the amount of profits it's possible to make from a game we'll get less jewish developers who just want to milk shekels out of the industry. I don't give a shit what you want to talk about regulation killing industries because the industry is already fucked sideways and there's not going to be any more good games made any time soon. It's not like soft regulations aren't already in place making sure no game gets out the door without diversity, identity politics and smelly jewish lesbians.

Imagine world where people stopped begging the government to protect them from other people's fun. If you are an adult, act like it. as i already said the industry is finally feeling the backlash over loot boxes and here comes mr congressman to swoop in and save the day at the last second after gamers have refused to buy the games, shamed those who do and those that make them.

>I support the law on that ground alone

then you are an authoritarian sjw begging the government to get involved where they do not belong.

>that maybe by decreasing the amount of profits it's possible to make from a game we'll get less jewish developers who just want to milk shekels out of the industry.

You make this claim but somehow forget who these regulations apply to friend. laws are for the goyim starting a new business in the industry run by those jews. When the laws get made they do not have the goys best interest in mind. I thought maybe you were misguided but now you just seem retarded.

>I don't give a shit what you want to talk about regulation killing industries because the industry is already fucked sideways and there's not going to be any more good games made any time soon.

and you believe somehow this regulation of banning lootboxes in adult games that children who do not own credit cards is going to fix it?

Rockstar Games' Wild West sandbox seems like its PC debut lies just beyond the horizon, as a PC port of the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 was recently listed on a programmer's resumé. There's been a lot of back and forth within the gaming community over whether or not PC players will get to step into the boots of Arthur Morgan on their platform of choice, and this most recent development has renewed hope that it could still happen.

Rockstar is notorious for skipping out on PC development and restricting its widely praised titles to Xbox and PlayStation systems, so it's not out-of-character that they neglected to launch Red Dead Redemption 2 alongside its console versions last year. However, the PC community was offered a sliver of hope when talk of a Grand Theft Auto V PC release began to circulate around the time of its re-release on Xbox One and PS4 in 2014, and the massively popular title did eventually come to PC the following year. This created a massive fan outcry for Red Dead Redemption 2 to follow in its modern counterpart's footsteps, but any news of the long-neglected PC crowd getting their next Rockstar fix has been sparse and largely unreliable until now.

China will raise tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. goods in retaliation for the U.S. decision to hike duties on Chinese goods, the Chinese Finance Ministry said Monday.

Beijing will increase tariffs on more than 5,000 products to as high as 25%. Duties on some other goods will increase to 20%. Those rates will rise from either 10% or 5% previously.

The move follows President Donald Trump’s decision to raise duties on $200 billion in Chinese products to 25% from 10%. The world’s two largest economies have struggled to sign a trade deal and end a widening conflict that threatens to damage the global economy.

The Supreme Court on Monday said that iPhone users can proceed with a class-action lawsuit against Apple over its control of app sales in a ruling that could threaten the company's exclusive marketplace of third-party software.

A group of consumers had sued Apple, claiming that the company's monopoly over its App Store led to inflated app prices. Apple disputed the legality of the suit, arguing the consumers had no standing to sue the company because it merely operated an intermediary between users and the developers who make and sell apps.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the opinion for the 5-4 decision, surprising many by breaking with his conservative colleagues and siding with the court's liberal justices.
