Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday warned against the danger of any split in his ruling party, as he prepares to take presidency later this month to extend his domination of the country. In his first keynote speech since he declared victory in Sunday's presidential election, Erdogan rubbished suggestions he would rule as a dictator and vowed to reconcile a divided society.Erdogan won the election with almost 52 percent of the vote, avoiding the need for a second round, and by law now needs to step down as head of the AKP. Analysts have said that one of the biggest questions after Erdogan becomes president on August 28 will be whether unity is maintained within the AKP as it prepares for 2015 legislative elections. There has been intense speculation about the future of outgoing president Abdullah Gul, who is seen as a more moderate figure than the combative Erdogan.
U.S. private employers added 237,000 jobs in June, the biggest gain since December, suggesting further improvement in the jobs market which may allow the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates later this year. Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast the ADP NationalEmployment Report would show a gain of 218,000 jobs. May private payroll gains were revised up to 203,000 from an originally reported 201,000 increase, which was the smallest rise since January 2014. The unemployment rate was forecast to slip to a seven-year low of 5.4 percent from 5.5 percent.
Brandy Clark's Grammy-nominated debut, 12 Stories is fairly even-toned, never jarring – at least not musically. The songs serve mainly as vehicles for Clark's angelic vocals and devilish lyrics ("Crazy women are made by crazy men," "What'll keep me out of heaven will take me there tonight"). But the acclaimed singer-songwriter is taking a bit of a new sonic approach on her next album. After her set at New York City's FarmBorough Festival on Saturday, Clark revealed she's working with Jay Joyce on her new set of tunes. Joyce is unique among Nashville producers for his ability to maintain a country sound while also pushing past the constraints of tradition. Singles like Eric Church's "Give Me Back My Hometown" and Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" lean on tropes from Seventies rock and soul but update them with raw, almost aggressive yearning.
First class passengers need not rely on their air of superiority because they're breathing superior air — at least on German airline Lufthansa. The airline recently installed humidifiers in the first class of its Airbus A380s, bringing air quality up to par with the luxurious lie-flat seats and other services available in the premium section of the aircraft. "[The humidifier] gives a totally different experience," Lufthansa chairman and CEO Carsten Spohr told The Times of India last month.
According to a Guardian investigation, police in the United States are killing people at a rate that would result in 11-hundred fatalities by the end of this year. The investigation recorded an average of three people killed per day during the first half of 2015. The Counted is a project working to report and crowdsource names and a series of other data on every death caused by law enforcement in the US this year. It found that 547 people had been killed by the end of June. In total, 478 of those people were shot and killed, while 31 died after being shocked by a Taser, Sixteen died after being struck by police vehicles, and 19 – including 25-year-old Freddie Gray in Baltimore – have died after altercations in police custody. When adjusted to accurately reflect the US population, the totals indicate that black people are being killed by police at more than twice the rate of white and Hispanic/Latino people. Black people killed by police were also significantly more likely to have been unarmed.
When Conan O'Brien broadcasts from San Diego next week, his guests will include stars from Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and more, the host announced. He'll also film a special Saturday show with a "mystery guest cast." The show's site boasts, "Conan talks to a never-before-seen Hollywood Blockbuster cast that’s so secret we can’t even say its name. But if there are any telepaths out there, we’re thinking about it extra-hard."
