PORTLAND, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sep 13, 2022–
Just days after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, unofficial souvenirs have rolled out at royal-themed gift shops in London and online marketplaces like Amazon and Etsy. One shop near Buckingham Palace says it pushed its suppliers to work overnight to get mementos ready by Saturday, just two days after the death of Britain’s longest-serving monarch. Now, people have the option to buy fridge magnets, flags, mugs and T-shirts with the queen’s likeness and the dates of her 70-year reign. Some shops say items depicting the new monarch, King Charles III, are on their way. Official merchandise will take longer to arrive to approved vendors, who have suspended sales of royal souvenirs out of respect for the mourning period.
Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, a handful of people in Britain have been detained by police for expressing anti-monarchy views. The arrests have sparked a debate about free speech at a time of national mourning. Two people were charged with breaching the peace in Edinburgh, including a woman who held a sign calling for the abolition of the monarchy. In Oxford, a peace activist was handcuffed after he shouted his opposition during a ceremonial proclamation of the new king. Rights group Liberty accused police of using their powers in “a heavy-handed and punitive way.” London’s Metropolitan Police said it had been made clear to officers that “the public absolutely have a right of protest.”
Oprah Winfrey has selected a prison memoir by Jarvis Jay Masters, currently on death row in San Quentin State Prison in California, for her latest book club pick. Masters’ “That Bird Has My Wings: The Autobiography of an Innocent Man on Death Row” was first published in 2009. Activists for years have called for the release of Masters, who was found guilty in 1990 for taking part in the murder of a San Quentin prison guard. Masters has filed numerous appeals in efforts to have his murder conviction overturned. A hearing is scheduled for next month in federal court.
Slovakia’s president has sworn in new ministers who replaced their predecessors from a junior coalition partner that withdrew from the governing four-party coalition that left Prime Minister Eduard Heger without a parliamentary majority. The new ministers are experts not affiliated with any party. Energy expert Karel Hirman became the economy minister, career diplomat Rastislav Kacer will serve as foreign minister while the head of Slovak Bar Association Viliam Karas was appointed the justice minister. Heger temporarily assumed the education minister post. The appointment took place after all four ministers from the liberal Freedom and Solidarity party resigned from their government posts.

The largest union representing General Electric Co. workers says it’s reached a deal with the company to speed up pay raises for workers at a Massachusetts aviation plant. Under the agreement, workers at GE’s facility in Lynn would be eligible for raises sooner and could reach the top pay rate after six years, instead of up to 10 under the old system. Once formally approved by workers, the deal would also extend an accelerated raise schedule to two non-union GE plants in Vermont and New Hampshire. IUE-CWA Local 201, the union that secured the deal, called it a “massive win” for workers.

On red carpet for his latest film, “The Son” at the Toronto International Film Festival, Hugh Jackman announced that “The Music Man” will end its Broadway run on Jan. 1. Jackman said he had a blast doing the show, saying he didn’t know he would have so much fun. “I love it. I love the cast. I love everything about the show. The audiences have been incredible and I’m going to be sad,” Jackman said. The musical revival was delayed several times due to the pandemic, finally opening in February. It has been a box office juggernaut, regularly exceeding $3 million a week.

Economists, scientists and environmental campaigners called Tuesday for the German government to create a hefty 100 billion-euro ($100-billion) fund for tackling climate change. The president of the German Institute for Economic Research said the money is needed partly because of Germany’s failure to invest enough in solar and wind power that would have made the country less dependent on fossil fuel imports. He says additional tax revenue that the German government is receiving because of rampant inflation could go toward the the fund. A prominent climate scientist at Berlin’s University of Applied Sciences for Engineering and Economics says 100 billion euros is only a fraction of what’s required to transform Germany into a low-carbon economy.

Saudi police have arrested a Yemeni man who said he had made the pilgrimage to Mecca to pay tribute to the memory of Queen Elizabeth II. The pilgrim had posted footage on social media that showed him holding a banner honoring the late queen from inside the courtyard of Mecca’s Grand Mosque. The clip quickly spread online, sparking outrage among Muslims. The Grand Mosque, among the holiest sites in Islam, is off-limits to non-Muslims. Saudi Arabia also bans signs and political slogans from the sacred courtyard for fear of offending Islamic sensibilities. Queen Elizabeth, who died last week, was head of the Church of England.
Hungary’s right-wing government has issued a decree which will require doctors to present women requesting an abortion with fetal vital signs, an obligation that tightens the country’s relatively liberal abortion rules. The decree issued on Monday states that healthcare providers must provide pregnant women with “a clearly identifiable indication of fetal vital signs” before proceeding with any abortion procedure. Abortion laws in Hungary are relatively liberal and have remained largely unchanged since the procedure was legalized during the country’s socialist period in 1953. Hungary’s nationalist government has offered significant tax breaks and subsidies for families that have multiple children in an effort to increase the country’s declining fertility rate.
Egypt’s president is traveling to Qatar on his first visit to the gas-rich nation amid warming ties after years of frayed relations following the Egyptian military’s overthrow of an Islamist president who was backed by Doha. Tuesday’s trip comes amid a rapid rapprochement between Egypt and Qatar after a yearslong boycott of Doha by four Arab states, including Egypt, ended in 2021. Qatar’s state-run news agency said President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi was to hold talks with Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. In June, Sheikh Tamim visited Cairo, where he was welcomed at the airport by el-Sissi, in a sign of warming ties.

Egypt is rejecting reports by a rights group saying that authorities in the Middle East country are stifling environment activism as part of a broader crackdown on dissent ahead of this year’s upcoming U.N.-led climate conference. Human Rights Watch has said the Egyptian government’s restrictions amount to a violation of basic human rights and throw into question its ability to meet basic climate commitments. Egypt is hosting the global COP27 summit in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh in November. Egypt’s foreign ministry said late on Monday that the HRW report was “misleading” and that its publishing was “counterproductive.” The statement didn’t address allegations of intimidation and obstruction faced by environment activists.

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says his official delegation to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral next week will include racehorse trainer Chris Waller and wheelchair tennis star Dylan Alcott. Albanese says they are among 10 “everyday Australians” who will represent Australia at Monday’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey in London. At least one Pacific neighbor leader, Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape, has accepted Australia’s offer of help to get to the funeral. Australia is one of 11 British Commonwealth nations in the Oceania region, most of them tiny South Pacific islands.

South Koreans shared congratulations on social media for the multiple wins by “Squid Game” at the Emmy Awards, but the overall reaction was subdued as the country grows accustomed to its increasingly prominent role in global entertainment. Social media were flooded with messages after the star of the Netflix drama, Lee Jung-jae, won the award for best male actor in a drama series, and its creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, the award for best drama director. Both were the first Asians to win in those categories. But the level of elation was much lower than when the South Korean movie “Parasite” became the first non-English-language film to win best picture at the Academy Awards in 2020.
