Mexico fuel pipeline blast kills 71, witnesses describe horror
Forensic experts filled body bags with charred human remains in the field where the explosion occurred on Friday evening by the town of Tlahuelilpan in the state of Hidalgo, in one of the deadliest incidents to hit Mexico's troubled oil infrastructure in years. A number of people at the scene told Reuters that local shortages in gasoline supply since Lopez Obrador launched a drive to stamp out fuel theft had encouraged the rush to the gushing pipeline. "Everyone came to see if they could get a bit of gasoline for their car, there isn't any in the gas stations," said farmer Isaias Garcia, 50.

Suicide attack on Kurdish-US convoy in Syria 'kills 5'
A suicide bomber attacked a convoy of US troops and their allies in Syria on Monday, killing five members of a Kurdish-led force fighting the Islamic State group, a monitor said. The assault, claimed by IS jihadists, came less than a week after another deadly attack on US forces in Syria, and a month after Washington announced a US troop pullout from the war-torn country. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said five fighters from the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces were killed in the blast on a road in northeastern Hasakeh province.

Prince Philip 'could be sent on driving awareness course' as police investigate crash
The Duke of Edinburgh could be sent on a drivers’ awareness course, it has emerged, as police continue to investigate a crash which left two women hospitalised. The Duke, 97, is understood to have no intention of giving up driving, having been photographed on public roads driving a new car less than 48 hours after the accident. He is understood to be complying with a Norfolk Police investigation, which will see him interviewed about what happened. Two women, aged 45 and 28, will also be asked for their recollections of the accident, after their Kia Carens collided with the Duke’s Land Rover Freelander on the A149 on Thursday. Both police and palace have emphasised that the investigation will be conducted in the same way as any other traffic accident, despite one of the involved parties being married to the Queen. That process would see him interviewed in the coming days, before police officers recommend whether to proceed with charging anyone involved. The scene of the crash, on the A149 at Sandringham The Duke has already passed an eye test as part of the investigation, celebrating by defiantly driving himself around the public roads near to Sandringham alone less than 48 hours after the accident. He was caught on camera driving in dark glasses without wearing a seatbelt, in a gesture that has been criticised by onlookers. A spokesman for Norfolk Police said: “We are aware of the photograph. “Suitable words of advice have been given to the driver and this is in line with our standard response when being made aware of or receiving such images showing this type of offence.” The law states that drivers can be fined up to £500 if caught without a seatbelt. The Duke of Edinburgh drives the Queen and Barack and Michelle Obama during their visit to Windsor Credit: Geoff Pugh If the Duke was found to be at fault for the Sandringham accident, he could be charged with driving without due care and attention, which carries a maximum penalty of nine points on a driving record and a £5,000 fine. It is thought unlikely that a prosecution would come to court. A police source said yesterday that non-royal drivers involved in a similar collision would more likely be offered a drivers’ awareness course, with improving their motoring skills considered more in the public interest than a court case. The Duke reportedly said "I'm such a fool" after being pulled from his wrecked Land Rover Freelander on Thursday after it flipped on its side following the collision with a Kia close to Sandringham. Witnesses claim he had told police at the scene he had been “dazzled” by the low sun at 2.45pm. A spokesman for Norfolk Police said: “As is standard procedure with injury collisions, the incident will be investigated and any appropriate action taken.”

Blood Sport or Good Government?
President Donald Trump and House speaker Nancy Pelosi traded snide jabs at each other — she canceling the State of the Union Address, he canceling her trip overseas — rather than come together to restart the government. Meanwhile, the mainstream media — the self-proclaimed protectors of democracy— embarrassed themselves by obsessing over a report from BuzzFeed that claimed Robert Mueller has evidence that the president instructed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. Next, the Right to Life March produced a bit of drama, as Catholic-school students from Kentucky seemed to get into a nonphysical conflict with a Native American activist at the National Mall.

Google was handed the record fine from the CNIL regulator for failing to provide transparent and easily accessible information on its data consent policies, a statement said. The CNIL said Google made it too difficult for users to understand and manage preferences on how their personal information is used, in particular with regards to targeted advertising.

Focus sharpens on Mexico fuel theft plan after blast kills 79
Fuel thieves punctured the Tula-Tuxpan pipeline a few miles from one of Mexico's main refineries on Friday. Half a dozen people interviewed by Reuters on Saturday said their relatives went to the leaking duct in Tlahuelilpan district in Hidalgo state because they struggled to find fuel elsewhere and were desperate to fill up cars to get to work or run their farms. Late last month, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador launched a program to shut down an illegal fuel distribution network that siphons off about $3 billion worth of fuel annually from state oil firm Pemex.

Israel says strikes Iranian targets in Syria after rocket
Israel struck what it said were Iranian targets in Syria on Monday in response to missile fire it blamed on Iran, sparking concerns of an escalation after a report that 11 fighters were killed. Israel announced the strikes against facilities it said belonged to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force as they were occurring, continuing its recent practice of speaking more openly about such raids. It said the strikes were in response to a medium-range, surface-to-surface missile the Quds Force fired from Syria at the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Sunday, which Israeli air defences intercepted.

Kamala Harris launches 2020 White House bid
California senator Kamala Harris has launched her presidential campaign for 2020, adding to a crowded Democratic field dominated by a new generation of women and minority candidates. The 54-year-old former prosecutor announced her bid for the White House on Monday in an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America programme, saying "The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values. That's why I'm running for president of the United States." She is the fifth Democrat to enter what is shaping up to be a fierce battle to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard have already announced their campaigns, along with former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and John Delaney, a Democratic Congressman from Maryland. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, who ran for the nomination in 2016, are also expected to throw their hat into the ring in coming weeks. JUST IN: @KamalaHarris on announcing she will be running for president in 2020: "I feel a responsibility to stand up and fight for who we are." https://t.co/qUX1sERxxZpic.twitter.com/NcSHFTRIny— Good Morning America (@GMA) January 21, 2019 Ms Harris, 54, is a rising star within the party and came to national attention with her prosecution style grillings of Trump administration appointees and officials, including Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during Senate hearings. Born to an Indian mother and a Jamaican father, Ms Harris would break several barriers if elected president. Her supporters believe she has a broad enough appeal to gain traction with a Democratic Party that is increasingly non white and fuelled by women who feel alienated by Mr Trump's policies. Monday's announcement was carefully timed for its symbolism. Choosing to enter the race on Martin Luther King day, a federal holiday to recognise the civil rights leader, Ms Harris highlighted the historic nature of her candidacy. This week also marks 47 years since Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman elected to Congress, became the first black woman to seek the Democratic nomination for president. Ms Harris has also chosen to hold her first campaign event on Friday in South Carolina, a state where black voters are the dominant force in the Democratic primary, rather than the traditional first stops of Iowa and New Hampshire, the two predominantly white states that open the primary vote. Mr Sanders and Cory Booker, another potential 2020 contender, were also in South Carolina on Monday, in a sign of how seriously they are taking the African American vote ahead of the next election. Mr Sanders used a public event marking Martin Luther King day to call Mr Trump "a racist", saying the president has purposely tried "to divide us up by the color of our skin, by our gender, by the country we came from, by our religion". Mr Biden and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke at an event in Washington celebrating Mr King's life. Mr Trump also marked the national holiday, laying a wreath by Mr King's memorial in Washington DC, but he chose not to comment on the Democratic race. Kamala Harris with Barack Obama in 2011 Credit: REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque The successful Democratic candidate will be the one that primary voters feel is best able to tackle Mr Trump and to appeal to the party’s many constituencies, which include white rural voters, young people, college-educated women and African Americans. Ms Harris has focused her campaign on reducing the high cost of living with a middle-class tax credit, pursuing immigration and criminal justice changes and a Medicare-for-all healthcare system. She has said she will reject corporate political action committee money, in a nod to the increasingly prominent progressive wing of the party which entered Congress earlier this year vowing to end corporate lobbying and campaign donations. Ms Harris made a veiled dig at Mr Trump as said she felt a "responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are" and regain America's "moral authority" in the world. She also debuted a campaign slogan, "Kamala Harris, for the people”, that aides said was a nod to her background as a prosecutor. Ms Harris’ campaign will be based in Baltimore, with a second office in her hometown of Oakland, California. She will hold a launch rally in Oakland before the end of the month.

British pound recovers as May outlines Brexit 'Plan B'
The pound recovered ground Monday after British Prime Minister Theresa May said she plans to return to Brussels to discuss changes to the Brexit deal she agreed with EU leaders last month despite an overwhelming rejection of the draft text by MPs last week. There was mixed news out of China, with official data showing the country's economic growth at its slowest pace in 28 years offsetting a report that the country has offered to eliminate its massive trade surplus with the United States -- easing trade war tensions between the world's two biggest economies. "Unless the British PM intends to commit political suicide, an extension request is the most likely scenario and the EU will most probably agree, which should be a positive development that will take the pound towards $1.30 again," predicted Konstantinos Anthis, Head of Research at ADSS.

10 ways to make your binge-watch as comfortable as possible
In Binged, Mashable breaks down why we binge-watch, how we binge-watch, and what it does to us. Because binge-watching is the new normal.
* * *
Binge-watching is basically an endurance sport, so you need to be sure you're prepared. After all, if you're going to watch You until your eyes fall out (recommended), why not make the experience as pleasant as possible?
That means paying close attention to the conditions under which you watch: the couch, the temperature, the vibe, and (most importantly) the snacks.
Some hot tips:
## 1\. Assemble your snacks before the binge-watch begins
To truly maximize your experience, I recommend selecting one salty snack, one sweet snack, and one wild-card snack. Some suggestions from my colleagues, whose tastes range from great to truly horrifying:
* Sno-Caps in popcorn
* Plain Lay's chips and Greek yogurt
* Chocolate-covered pretzels
* Trader Joe's olive oil popcorn
* Literally a ham-and-cheese sandwich dipped in orange juice (cursed)
* Celery and peanut butter
* Peanut butter straight from the jar
Note: you can always sub in pizza for any category (or all three).
## 2\. Keep no less than three beverages in front of you at all times
One of the beverages should be water. For the other two, I like to choose a large, gulp-able beverage -- like Gatorade or, if I am feeling brave, seltzer -- as well as a fancy, small beverage, like a blood orange San Pellegrino or one of those high-end lemonades with cursive lettering on the bottle.
SEE ALSO: Watching your favorite TV show a million times isn't compulsive. It's a comfort binge.
## 3\. Get up every hour to stretch
You don't have to do a full yoga class, but it's nice to remind your body that it is, in fact, capable of movement.
> Netflix: are you still watching?

> -- sara reinis (@SaraReinis) March 7, 2018
## 4\. Consider the two-blanket approach
I have radiators in my apartment and do not control my own heat, which means that sometimes my living room is 1,000 degrees. This is too hot. If I open the window, though (see #7), it becomes too cold. That's why I prefer to have two blankets near me when I binge-watch: one thick blanket for the cold times and one thinner cotton blanket for the medium times. During the hot times, I use no blanket at all.
## 5\. Consider your spinal column
If you need to bring a bed pillow onto the couch for back support, so be it. If you're binge-watching in bed, consider acquiring a backrest pillow. Maybe one ... with a cupholder?
## 6\. If you're watching a show featuring heavy subject matter, take more breaks
While there is certainly no shame in binge-watching, it can have adverse effects on your mental health -- especially if the show you choose deals with emotionally fraught topics. In these cases, treat yourself to a few more breaks than you normally would. We're not saying go outside (imagine!), but maybe do a few more stretches, check in with your friends, and drink some extra water.
## 7\. Open a window
Let your binge-watching farts (different than regular farts) fly freely into the atmosphere.
## 8\. Text people about what you're watching
If you do not have a binge-watching partner literally sitting next to you, it can be fun to live-text the show with a fellow binge-watcher in another location. It also reminds you that you have friends. Crucial!
What you should not do, however, is send texts about the show to someone who has not seen the whole show yet. Avoid committing this friendship crime at all costs.

> -- Philip Ellis (@Philip_Ellis) February 16, 2018
## 9\. Switch positions
When you have a nest, you have a nest, so switching rooms isn't necessary. But alternating between sitting up and lying down, or even just lying down on the other end of the couch, can be kinda nice. After all, lying down in a second location is a fun twist on lying down.
## 10\. Respect the air
If you've chosen some really good snacks (and also haven't left the couch for six hours), the room can start to smell a little ... rank. That's when it's time to light a candle.
On the off-chance Gilmore Girls is your binge-watch, there is a Gilmore Girls candle designed to burn in tandem with the 2016 revival. There are also Stranger Things-themed candles. Or you could just burn a regular one. It's your binge-watch, after all!

Arab states call for return of Syria refugees
Arab states at an economic summit in Lebanon on Sunday urged world powers to step up efforts to enable refugees, particularly Syrians, to return home and to ease the burden on host countries. The fourth annual Arab Economic and Social Development Summit, held in the Lebanese capital Beirut, was marred by the glaring absence of most Arab heads of state. The refugee issue had been high on the summit's agenda at the request of Lebanon, which has been inundated with refugees since the start of the Syrian war 2011.

China population growth slows despite abolition of the one-child policy
China's population grew at a slower rate last year despite the abolition of the one-child policy, official data showed Monday, raising fears an ageing society will pile further pressure on an already slowing economy. There were 15.23 million live births in 2018, a drop of two million from the year before, data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed. With 9.93 million deaths, this led to a growth rate of 3.81 per thousand in 2018, a dip from 5.32 per thousand the previous year. NBS commissioner Ning Jize said population growth had peaked, but said the country still had huge potential. "China's labour participation rate is not considered low worldwide, more than 700 million of our 900 million people (of working age) are employed, and there is still room (for growth)," he said. Signs of China's falling population growth had emerged when data released by some local authorities indicated a significant drop in births last year. In Qingdao, a city in eastern Shandong province - one of China's most populous regions - births between January and November decreased by 21 percent to just over 81,000 compared to the previous year. Top 10 | Largest countries by population Still, China's total population rose by 5.3 million in 2018 to 1.395 billion people, retaining its title as the world's most populous nation. China for decades limited most families to one child - often enforcing this policy through hefty financial penalties - in a bid to control population growth. This was relaxed in 2016 when couples were allowed two children in response to concerns about an ageing society and shrinking workforce. China's workforce - those aged between 16 and 59 - was 897.3 million last year, a 4.7 million drop from 2017, NBS data showed. The workforce is on track to decline by as much as 23 percent by 2050.

State of the Union 2019: When will Trump make the annual address to Congress and what is its history?
Donald Trump is currently pondering how to deliver his second State of the Union address to Congress with the US government mired in its longest shutdown in history. House speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the president to postpone his speech on 16 January and suggested he submit it by letter, a manoeuvre Republicans were quick to brand “political” and which appeared to provoke Mr Trump into denying Ms Pelosi’s congressional delegation the use of a military plane to visit troops in Afghanistan. The address is still scheduled for 9pm EST on 29 January at the time of writing, with the president tweeting: “Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options – including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance.

Everything new coming to Netflix this week, and everything leaving (week of Jan. 20)
We don't get many slow weeks when it comes to Netflix releases, but this week certainly counts. With just ten shows and movies on the docket (nine of which are Netflix originals), there's a decent chance that nothing here will really stand out for you. Personally, I will be delving into the final six episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as soon as they go live, since it's one of the two or three best sitcoms on the service.
If you're a fan of serial killers (well, not a fan, but you know what I mean), Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes should be on your radar as well. And all I now about Polar is that it features Mad Mikkelsen with an eye patch, so I'll probably check it out. And hey, at least nothing is leaving the streaming service this week!
Here is the complete list of the Netflix arrivals and departures for the week of January 20th, 2019:
### Monday, January 21st
* Justice-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL
### Thursday, January 24th
* Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL
* Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
### Friday, January 25th
* Animas-- NETFLIX FILM
* Black Earth Rising-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL
* Club de Cuervos: Season 4-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL
* Kingdom-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL
* Medici: The Magnificent-- NETFLIX ORIGINAL

Police fire tear gas as Greeks protest against Macedonia name deal
Central Athens turned into a sea of people holding blue and white Greek flags as thousands came from all over the country to rally against the accord to name the ex-Yugoslav state North Macedonia. Many Greeks believe the name Macedonia implies a territorial claim over their country's own northern region of that name. The issue evokes strong emotions among Greeks who consider Macedonia, the ancient kingdom ruled by Alexander the Great, to be an integral part of their homeland and heritage.

Baked sea bream with a flatbread lid
This dish comes from chef Luke Holder, who runs Hartnett Holder & Co with me at Lime Wood hotel in Hampshire. The flatbread lid on the bream dish is not something to be nervous about trying. It’s just flour and water, the most basic form of bread you could make. There’s no yeast in it, so you don’t have to let it rise: just add rock salt, olive oil and rosemary. SERVES Two to four INGREDIENTS For the flatbread lid 125g plain flour, plus extra for dusting 75ml water 5g salt A little chopped rosemary mixed with coarse salt, for scattering For the fish 2 sea bream fillets 4 large basil leaves, torn Dash of olive oil 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 150g tomato passata 50g dried porcini mushrooms 200g clams, in their shells 150ml white wine METHOD Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/Gas 7. First, make the flatbread by mixing the flour with the water and salt until a dough forms. Set aside. Lightly season both fillets of bream and place the basil on the flesh side of one fillet. Place the other on top so the flesh sides are together, and use a few toothpicks to hold them in place. Set aside. Add a dash of olive oil to a large ovenproof dish, pan or casserole, ideally with handles. Throw in the garlic and heat for a couple of minutes to release the flavour. Take it off the heat and add the tomato passata, dried mushrooms, clams and white wine. Carefully place the fish on top. If you feel it needs a tad more liquid, add a dash of water. Roll out the bread dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1cm. Place this carefully over the dish to form a lid, pressing it to seal around the edges and pulling it tight to feed through the handles. Wrap it around the handles to create a sort of knot. Brush with olive oil and bake in the oven for 12 minutes. Two minutes before the end of cooking, brush again with olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and rosemary before returning to the oven. Remove the dish from the oven and allow to rest for three minutes before serving. Use a serrated knife to cut open the pastry lid and remove the fish. Cut the lid into four pieces. Place a piece on each plate, with the fish and sauce from the dish on top. Angela Hartnett's one-pot wonders

Women march for safe streets after murder of Israeli student
Thousands of protesters have marched in Australia calling for an end to violence against women, days after the murder of an Israeli student in Melbourne.

Elon Musk gets green light to deliver Tesla Model 3 cars in Europe
Tesla has secured approval from regulators to sell its Model 3 cars in Europe, in a move that will bring it in direct competition with the likes of BMW, Volkswagen and Peugeot in their home market. Dutch vehicle authority RDW approved Tesla's request to sell the most affordable of its electric cars on Monday, meaning that British customers can order the car from next month. Production of right hand driving vehicles, the standard in the UK, is not due to start until mid 2019. The announcement comes days after chief executive Elon Musk issued a letter to all of his employees, describing 2018 as "the most challenging in Tesla's history". In the same letter, Musk said he had "no choice" but to reduce full time employee headcount by 7pc and retain only the most critical temps and contractors. "There isn't any other way," he said. Workers will now focus on producing a cheaper version of the Model 3 in an attempt to boost sales. Shipments of Model 3 vehicles to Europe and Asia are expected to generate a profit for the company in future, Musk said. Tesla's Model 3 is currently priced at over $35,000 (£27,200), has a range of 220 miles and a top speed of 130 mph. The model first went on sale at the end of 2018. Tesla was forced to push back its production targets last year when it failed to hit the 5,000 vehicle a week target by the end of 2017.

ProSieben sees pressure easing as Netflix raises prices
ProSiebenSat.1 Media believes that price increases by U.S. streaming giant Netflix could ease competitive pressures on the German group's core TV business and is bullish on growth at its e-commerce arm, CEO Max Conze said. Conze took the helm at the Munich-based broadcaster last June but has had a rough welcome from investors who have sent its shares to seven-year lows on doubts that he can revive its ailing free-to-air TV business. The former CEO of UK appliances company Dyson told Reuters that plans to relaunch a German streaming venture in cooperation with Discovery Inc, public broadcaster ZDF, publisher Axel Springer and possibly others were on track for late summer.
