Prime minister told to adopt model used in east Asia where ‘countries have been more successful’
All Indians are now allowed to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir, India's only Muslim-majority state, in a controversial move that human rights activists say amounts to a Hindu "land grab". Kashmiris have long accused the Hindu-nationalist government of trying to force demographic change by encouraging Hindu migration to India’s only Muslim-majority region, which borders Pakistan. In August 2019, Narendra Modi, the Indian prime minister, scrapped the autonomous status that the state had since independence and split it into two union territories, in an attempt to bring the conflict-ridden region under greater central control. A violent pro-independence insurgency has raged in Jammu and Kashmir since 1989 and the Indian authorities are accused of carrying out gross human rights abuses against civilians. Prior to the ruling, non-Kashmiris could only apply for residency if they had lived in the region for 15 years, meaning demographic change had been very slow.

Police officers from Scotland Yard have attended a "secret" meeting in Lisbon with their Portuguese and German counterparts to work out where Madeleine McCann could be buried, reports claim. The forces met to pore over the details of suspect Christian Brückner's life in the Algarve at around the time when Madeleine went missing, with reports suggesting German police may travel to Praia da Luz for "one last roll of the dice" in their investigation. According to the Portuguese daily Correio da Manha, the meeting took place "recently" at the Lisbon HQ of the Policia Judiciaria. "Wells and ditches have been looked at with a fine-tooth comb, but no signs of the remains of the missing girl have been found," the Portuguese officers are said to have told British police. The abandoned wells are a 15-minute drive from Brückner's rented cottage on the outskirts of Praia de Luz, on a narrow road leading down to a beach where the he used to park his VW camper van.

In recent years, diversity has become a much-talked-about topic in the beauty industry, with the global racial justice movements of 2020 only amplifying the conversation. It is safe to say that for a very long time, the skin- and hair-care needs of Black women were simply an afterthought when it came to new product launches and ingredient innovation. Thankfully, things are starting to change: difficult conversations are taking place and many of the beauty brands we know and love are stepping up to ensure that the needs of Black women are met. When we think of diversity, our first thought may be an extensive foundation shade offering, but it is so much more than that. We are celebrating nine Black women who have had an undeniable impact on the beauty industry through speaking up or using their respective platforms to help usher in the changes they wanted to see. Each and every one of these inspiring game changers have all transformed the beauty industry for the better.
A total of 670 deaths involving COVID-19 took place in the week up to 16 October.
Actor referenced DeGeneres’s ‘be kind’ tagline
A Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) officer recorded a teachable moment in human-wild turkey relations on October 23, as an aggressive wild turkey pecked his vehicle and followed him on a highway.The officer was clearing debris from the Cameron Peak Fire off Highway 14 in Rustic when the bird approached.According to the CPW, the wild turkey came out of the trees and strode up to the officer, who initially thought it was “a bird in distress.” The turkey was found in “really good body condition,” but authorities said it then became clear that it was a “domesticated bird being fed by people.”Officers warned of the dangers of feeding wild turkeys.“What can happen when you feed wildlife is the animals can become demanding. The next person to come across this turkey could be met with aggression and injured by it if it is expecting you to feed it,” CPW NE Region said.The video shows the turkey pecking the officer’s car and following the vehicle as it drives along.

A senior civil servant has claimed she deleted and then forgot about a crucial text message from Nicola Sturgeon’s chief mandarin which allies of Alex Salmond believe is evidence of a high-level conspiracy against him. Barbara Allison had denied under oath that she had received a message from Leslie Evans, the Scottish Government’s Permanent Secretary, sent the the day Mr Salmond won a judicial review which ultimately cost taxpayers more than £500,000, at an earlier evidence session. However, she claimed on Tuesday that this had been an “unintended inaccuracy” and she had received it after all. The text read: “Battle maybe lost but not the war.” She is the latest witness to claim to not have remembered crucial details about the episode, with Nicola Sturgeon also accused of having experienced “sudden memory loss” over a meeting with Mr Salmond's former aide which she failed to disclose to Holyrood.
