A temporary safeguard to avoid erecting a physical border between Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit would serve no purpose, the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier said on Wednesday. In an interview to newspapers Le Monde, Rzeczpospolita and Luxemburger Wort, Barnier said the current backstop proposal over the border was the only option on the table. This is the only possible option because an insurance is of no use if it is time limited," Barnier said.

While GMC's 2020 Sierra Heavy Duty truck is definitely the heartiest of the line, the pickup also features a slew of advanced technological innovations right down to a transparent trailer view. Because "trailering is the most important consideration for Sierra Heavy Duty customers," the company ensured that this model was tailored for those who heave and haul. The truck is equipped standard with the enhanced ProGrade Trailering system first seen in the 2019 Sierra Light Duty pickup, a system which now features 15 camera views including a "transparent trailer view." This technology works in the same fashion that we've seen in systems made for semi-trucks, like Valeo's "XtraVue Trailer," allowing drivers to more easily see what's behind their freight thanks to a strategically placed camera mounted on the rear of the trailer.

A nurse has been charged with rape after a severely disabled woman gave birth in care home in Arizona. The 29-year-old victim stunned her caregivers and family when she gave birth to a baby boy late last month, sparking an investigation. Nathan Sutherland, a 36-year-old licensed practical nurse, was arrested Wednesday on one count of sexual assault and one count of vulnerable adult abuse, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said. Mr Sutherland was responsible for providing care to the victim during the time the assault occurred. He was arrested after his DNA was matched to that of the baby, Phoenix Police department said. The 29-year-old victim, who police said "was not in a position to give consent", has been in the care of the Hacienda Health Care facility in Phoenix, Arizona since the age of three. The victim's family described her as having "significant intellectual disabilities as a result of seizures very early in her childhood". Police collected DNA samples from male staff at the clinic Credit: CBS/Universal News And Sport (Europe) While she does not speak, she has some mobility in her limbs, head and neck. She also responds to sound and can make facial gestures, the family said in a statement. The family's lawyer, John Micheaels, said the relatives were "outraged, traumatised and in shock" at the assault. The child is now in the care of the patient's family. Court documents state that the woman is "not alert" and requires a "maximum level of care", according to the Arizona Republic. Staff at the facility said they had no idea she was pregnant and the case has triggered reviews by state agencies and highlighted safety concerns for patients who are severely disabled or incapacitated. The CEO of the nursing facility resigned following the scandal and earlier this week the clinic announced that one of the victim's doctors had resigned and another has been suspended. Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams announces the arrest of Nathan Sutherland Credit: AP Police are still investigating whether Mr Sutherland, who has worked at the facility since 2011, has assaulted any other patients and are encouraging anyone with information to come forward. Tommy Thompson, a spokesman for Phoenix Police, said the baby boy was "doing good". "We can't always choose how we come into this life, but what we can choose to do as a community is love this child, and that's what we have the opportunity to do," he said. The force said the case had become "the highest priority of our police department". In a press conference yesterday, Ms Williams said she had not encountered a similar case during her 30-year-career in law enforcement. "We owed this arrest to the victim. We owed this arrest to the newest member of our community - that innocent baby," the police chief added.
The nine justices will review a 2018 lower court ruling upholding the city's restrictions after three gun owners and the NRA's New York state affiliate sued claiming the regulations imposed in the largest American city violated the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment right to "keep and bear arms." The decision indicates a new interest regarding gun rights on the court, where conservatives hold a 5-4 majority. The Supreme Court had not taken up a major firearms case since issuing important rulings in 2008 and 2010 that established an individual right to own guns for self-defense inside the home. The issue of gun rights is contentious in the United States, which has experienced a succession of mass shootings in recent decades and calls from many Americans for stricter regulation of firearms and ammunition.

Thousands of ships, including former dictator Saddam Hussein's yacht, have passed through the Iraqi shipyard's three docks, where a giant steam engine hauls them out of the water and up the century-old wooden tracks. Mohammed Adnan, who has been operating the huge steam engine for six years now, says it is not easy. "They say they [the British] brought in the wood from Burma... we tried to drill a 1.5 inch nail into it once, we couldn't," said Jassim Hussain Sabour, the shipyard's longest-serving worker.
