MPs introduce Bill to return 'Elgin Marbles' to Greece 200 years

A cross-party group of MPs has launched a fresh bid to return the so-called Elgin Marbles to Greece on the 200th anniversary of the British Government’s decision to buy them — a move that campaigners said could help the UK secure a better deal during the Brexit talks with the EU.

The issue has long been a source of tension between, on one side, the UK Government and British Museum, where the 2,500-year-old marbles are currently on display, and, on the other, Greece and international supporters of the reunification of the Parthenon temple's sculptures.

About half the surviving sculptures were taken from the Parthenon in Athens by Thomas Bruce, the seventh Earl of Elgin, and later bought by the British Government after parliament passed an Act that came into force on 11 July, 1816. The other half are currently in the Acropolis Museum in Greece.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg jokes that if Donald Trump wins the presidential election, she’ll consider moving.

“I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president,” she said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

Ginsburg, 83, said she will not leave her job “as long as I can do it full steam.”


If only most of the rest of us had that, or other good options to move in the event of a tRump presidency......

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes banned for two years

Embattled biotech company Theranos says that federal regulators have revoked the license of its California blood-testing facility and banned founder Elizabeth Holmes from owning or operating a laboratory for two years.

Theranos said it was notified of the sanctions by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Thursday.

The company faces a civil financial penalty, and regulators have also canceled the lab's approval to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments.
