Police in the Armenian capital detained dozens of people on Thursday during protests against the country's prime minister, who is being pressured to resign over his handling of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Azerbaijan.
Opposition politicians and their supporters have been demanding for weeks that Nikon Pashinyan step down over the Nov. 10 peace deal that saw Azerbaijan reclaim control over large parts of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas. Police detained 77 people following clashes when thousands of protesters converged on center of the capital Yerevan and surrounded the heavily guarded government building.
The deal, agreed more than four years after Britain voted by a slim margin to leave the bloc, offers a way out of a chaotic finale to a divorce that has shaken the 70-year project to forge European unity from the ruins of World War Two. It will preserve Britain's zero-tariff and zero-quota access to the bloc's single market of 450 million consumers, but will not prevent economic pain and disruption for the United Kingdom or for EU member states.
It added that the first phase of the rollout will target citizens and residents over the age of 60, adults with chronic diseases, people with special needs as well as frontline and other key workers.

U.S. immigration arrests fell by 27% in 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic led to fewer border crossings and reduced operations, a falloff that pro-immigrant activists say should continue when President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January.

Yang Begun was taken into custody upon arriving in Guangzhou in southern China from New York in January last year with his wife, Yuan Xiaoping, and his 14-year-old stepdaughter. “After two years, especially with torture, more than 300 interrogations and a lot of verbal abuse, I am now in a place of deeper retrospective and introspective meditation,” Yang wrote in a recent holiday season letter addressed to his wife, sons and friends, colleagues and readers.
Senior Conservative Breathers are preparing to reconvene a panel of lawyers to scrutinize the UK-EU trade deal that Boris Johnson announced on Thursday. The European Research Group (ERG) of hardliner pro-Leave Tory MPs said on Wednesday night that it would reassemble the “Star Chamber” that reviewed Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement last year.
The views of the qualified solicitor, the MP for Stone, in Stafford shire, are held in high esteem by his ERG colleagues, with some privately warning that Mr Johnson's agreement must pass the “Bill Cash test” if they are to back it. They said: “The Star Chamber will scrutinize it in detail, to ensure that its provisions genuinely protect the sovereignty of the United Kingdom, after we exit the Transition Period at the end of this year.
Ministers have drawn up plans for the Bill to pass through the Commons and the Lords, and achieve Royal Assent, at breakneck speed in a single day. It is understood that Sir Are Starter is preparing to urge his shadow Cabinet to back the deal on Thursday in a move that would provide added reassurance to Downing Street that it will pass through the Commons without struggle.
The twenty-first century “Star Chamber” which convened last March to pore over Mrs May's withdrawal deal was made up of eight MPs from across the Conservatives and Democratic Unionist Party, including Dominic RAAF, now the Foreign Secretary, and Stella Braver man, now the Attorney General. With hundreds of millions of dollars pouring into twin Jan. 5 Georgia runoff elections to determine control of the U.S. Senate, Democrats and a constellation of allies is waging an all-out campaign to mobilize as many Black voters as possible.
With unexpectedly cold weather in the forecast and pandemic-related curfews in some places, Florida is about to have a Christmas unlike any other in recent memory, and it may involve falling iguanas. As Ms Maxwell seeks bail prosecutors have argued that the divorce discussions undermined her claim that her marriage to tech CEO Scott Bergeron was a strong reason for her to stay in the United States to face trial.
From doctors weary of seeing patients die to relatives who lost their loved ones, thousands of Brazilians have volunteered for COVID-19 vaccine trials in one of the world's worst-affected countries in the hope their quiet heroism will save lives. Denise Branches, 47, coordinator of dentistry at a São Paulo hospital, was the first volunteer outside Britain to receive the trial vaccine from AstraZeneca Plc.
According to those splendid websites that go around counting all the review scores, WipE out Pure is the second best game on the PSP. Lucky number eight, due out for Christmas, remembers to drink lots of water and has a jolly old time too.
At its core, it's still the same old WipE out : pilot your fragile ship around very fast courses over and over again until you know where all the boost pads are, and you've worked out how to air-brake through the tight corners without scraping the sides. Every time you complete one, it unlocks the hexagons adjacent to it, giving you lots of options.
What's clever is that you get better just in time to handle the faster ships. Then there's the old favorite from Pure, called Zone, where the color scheme switches to a beautifully slick Tron world of whites and grass or reds and oranges, and you have to try and stave off damage for as long as possible while your ship steadily accelerates from sub-Venom speeds to super-Phantom. New to the mix is Elimination, which surprisingly isn't the age-old thing of the loser getting bumped off at the end of each lap, but a sort of race deathwatch, where power-ups are abundant, but you can no longer use them to heal your ship, and the idea is to obliterate your fellow racers repeatedly until you reach a target number of kills.
They have new bits too, like the Mag-Strips, which bind you to the track, so you can do loops and go upside down (you can still steer), intensifying the feeling of speed and precariousness. After a while the game does clever things with them, too, like only putting a Mag-Strip on one half of the track, so you can either zoom over the top of a hill on strips or make yourself go flying up to a special shortcut route that's harder to race but has more boost arrows.
I wanted to deliver impressions on Friday, but technical hiccups meant that didn't happen. The extra time paid off, though; I spent the weekend playing through every available race -- there are 14 on the playable code Sony provided us -- and loved almost every minute of it.
After sucking up my pride and switching the difficulty to easy, however, WipE out HD” opened up, and I let the game's “Red” -like audiovisual dance take over. Allows you to do that, and slowly come to grips with the game's air brake mechanics (which allow you to execute a hard turn).
The timeless aesthetic means there's no reason this couldn't pass for a truly next-generation take on WipE out, ” and it maintains a ridiculously fast frame rate. Your vehicle accelerates automatically and that top speed increases every 10 seconds.
Around you, the environment hypnotically pulsates to the music and colors and textures slip in and out of completely different looks. Our current demo doesn't have any online capabilities, so we'll have to get a little closer to WipE out HD”'s release over PlayStation Network in May to get a better idea of where that's at, but if you couldn't already tell, I'm a little excited.
Therefore, they've decided to venture into the world of building remasters and remakes. It's an arcade racer for people who love racing games with a bit of a sugar rush.
Twelve years ago, the game was a big step up for the series. Newer players who never played Burnout Paradise will be able to relate it to Asphalt and a few others, but honestly, there is no match for this beast.

In terms of graphics, Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is a new experience, but it still manages to feel like the same 2009 game of the year a lot of people loved. For the people looking to enjoy an excellent action shooter, both Modern Warfare remasters are worth the time.
Games are coming out yearly that are inspired by FromSoftware's masterpieces, although none have been able to surpass the originals. Dark Souls: Remastered stays true to the original in almost every aspect.
No longer will the players blame the low frame rate for their deaths, as the game runs 60fps. The Last Of Us Remastered is the PS4 edition of the PS3 game, and it comes with all the new benefits of being on a superior console, which is higher resolution, better frame rate, and visuals.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection repackages all the PS3 games for the PlayStation 4. The Uncharted games are critically acclaimed and among the biggest PlayStation exclusives on the market.
