China & Drones, Ford, Yemen, US Storms, Trump: 5 things to know today
. 1 President Trump
Meanwhile, former White House attorney Don McGahn will not appear before the House Judiciary Committee today as the White House states that former high-ranking advisers are exempted from appearing in Congress. US Representative Jerry Nadler, the chairman of the committee, promised McGahn to pay a high price for resisting the panel's summons and threatened to scorn him.
. 2 Yemen
The United Nations threatened to stop helping hungry people in Yemen if the Houthi rebels continue to steal or "distract" food. A CNN investigation revealed the thefts. David Beasley, head of the UN's World Food Program, said food worth up to $ 1
5 million a month is not intended for the desperate people for whom they are destined to upgrade fighters or supporters instead. As a result, children die, Beasley said. The aim of the United Nations was to feed 12 million people, about half of the population of Yemen. The CNN investigation, however, referred to whole villages where there had been no supplies for weeks because the Houthi rebels who control much of the country had stolen. A deputy foreign minister of the rebels rejected the aid.
. 3 Weather
More than 50 million people in central US states are threatened today by storms such as flash floods, hail and damaging winds. It follows a day when at least 19 tornadoes swept through Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas. There is damage to homes, cars and businesses, but fortunately no reports of injuries. Oklahoma will feel the brunt of today's bad weather. The National Meteorological Service has issued a torrential emergency for Tulsa, which has already received 5 inches of rain and could get 3 more. Water rescue has been reported throughout the state.
. 4 Ford
Ford has 7,000 jobs. Employees will be informed from today on the job cuts. The reduction of employees, about 10% of Ford employees, is part of the automaker's drive to restructure and reduce costs. The cuts will save Ford around $ 600 million a year. The company spends billions to change its operations, hoping to increase its overseas sales and focus more on electric and autonomous driving technologies.
. 5 Drones and China
Do drones like to fly? You could accidentally send data to the Chinese government. Wait what? Homeland Security warned that drones manufactured in China could send sensitive flight data to their manufacturers in China. It is estimated that nearly 80% of US and Canadian drones are manufactured by DJI, a company based in Shenzhen, China. Drone users are encouraged to disconnect the device from the Internet and remove secure digital maps if the products are manufactured in China. The US Army banned drones manufactured two years ago by DJI for fear that the company might share information with the Chinese government.
