Meghan McCain Is Still Playing the Victim

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos GettyMeghan McCain has always been destined for greatness. Being born to one of the most powerful politicians in the country will have that effect on your career trajectory.

Limbo in a blue tent: African asylum-seekers stuck on Cyprus

It seems a strange place to pitch a tent. Plump in the middle of the United Nations-patrolled buffer zone that has divided Cyprus along ethnic lines since 1974, in the heart of the island's medieval capital, two Cameroonian asylum-seekers have lived in a small blue tent for nearly five months. The breakaway Turkish Cypriot north, through which they entered hoping to reach the European Union-member, Greek Cypriot south, will deport them if they go back. And the south seems determined not to let them in — to discourage more would-be migrants from trying the same route. To make things worse, the two can see people freely moving between north and south all the time, as their tent is beside a main authorized crossing — one of nine linking the two communities. Enjei Grace says that she and Danie

Mumbai cinemas reopen after 18 months as life swings back

Movie theaters in India’s entertainment capital Mumbai reopened on Friday after more than 18 months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, the last of the many virus restrictions to go amid a decline in infections. Theaters opened to half capacity, following the guidelines released last month, but struggled to lure the public back and mostly re-released earlier hits. Many shows were running with fewer audiences, movie ticketing portal BookMyShow showed.

Masks and temperature checks are mandatory and no food or beverages will be allowed inside. Theaters elsewhere in the country are already running shows. Mumba...

In South Sudan, flooding called ‘worst thing in my lifetime’

He feels like a man who has drowned. The worst flooding that parts of South Sudan have seen in 60 years now surrounds his home of mud and grass. His field of sorghum, which fed his family, is under water. Surrounding mud dykes have collapsed. Other people have fled. Only Yel Aguer Deng’s family and a few neighbors remain. This is the third straight year of extreme flooding in South Sudan, further imperiling livelihoods of many of the 11 million people in the world’s youngest country. A five-year civil war, hunger and corruption have all challenged the nation. Now climate change, which the United Nations has blamed on the flooding, is impossible to ignore. As he empties a fishing net, Daniel Deng, a 50-year-old father of seven, recalls a life of being forced to flee again and again because...

San Jose State football: Spartans rally to hand UNLV 13th consecutive loss

San Jose State got back in the win column Thursday night, but it took a two-touchdown comeback to score a 27-20 victory over a Nevada-Las Vegas team that has lost 13 consecutive games.
