‘Has the eagle eaten all the olives?’ Putin jokes with Bolton about US belligerence

Meeting with US national security adviser John Bolton in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a comment about Washington’s hostility that went right over the hawkish diplomat’s head.

“As far as I remember, the US coat of arms features a bald eagle that holds 13 arrows in one talon and an olive branch in another, which is a symbol of a peace-loving policy,” Putin said in a meeting with Bolton in Moscow on Tuesday.

“I have a question,” the Russian president added. “Looks like your eagle has already eaten all the olives; are the arrows all that is left?”

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki warns the EU 'meme ban' threatens the open internet as we know it

Article 11 and 13 of the Copyright Directive were approved in June by officials in Brussels in an attempt to change online copyright law.

The regulations may have dire implications for meme-lovers as well as YouTube users as websites will now be obligated to screen user-generated content, including text, audio, photos and video to protect copyrighted works.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki focused on Article 13 in a recent blog post and said: '[Article 13] threatens to shut down the ability of millions of people — from creators like you to everyday users — to upload content to platforms like YouTube.'

She added that 'hundreds of thousands of jobs' will be at-risk following the implementation of Article 13.

The company, which announces annual results on Thursday, is understood to have identified around a third of its 166 stores to face possible closure.

It is also understood to be preparing a significant write-down of its goodwill – the way companies account for their inherent value – that would result in a one-off charge of several hundred millions of pounds.

Flashback 2016: Counting Down To Israel’s Next ‘Mowing Of The Lawn’ In Palestine

Every two years or so, Israel decides that it’s time to once more test out its weaponry, provided by the United States, on Palestine. It invents some vague pretext and levels the Gaza Strip, a process Israeli politicians have referred to as a periodic “mowing of the lawn.”

Indeed, the grass in any lawn will grow too tall if not mowed periodically. Palestinians in Gaza, suffering under a brutal siege that’s now entering a second decade, must be put down before they, too, grow too much. And since the last bombing was during the summer of 2014, Israel must be looking for a new excuse now to “mow the lawn.”
