Britain’s royal family is beefing up its social media operatio

  amid a rise in racist online abuse targeting the Duchess of Sussex in the

months after the announcement of her pregnancy, sources have told CNN.

  Kensington Palace staff are devoting more resources to deleting com

ments targeting Meghan, and blocking abusive Twitter and Instagram accounts. Sof

ware is being used to filter out the use of the n-word as well as emojis of guns and knives.

  As part of the effort, the royal family issued a set of guidelines last week for people engaging with its social media channels.

  Separately, the advocacy group Hope Not Hate analyzed a sample of more than 5,000 tweets contai

ning the most commonly used anti-Meghan hashtags. The analysis of the tweets, posted betw

een January and the middle of February, shows that a tight-knit group of accounts is behind much of the trolling.

  Twenty accounts were responsible for about 70% of the tweets, sharing anti-Meghan hashtags, pictu

res and memes. The fact that such a small number of users generated such a large number of the tweets suggests that the accounts wer

e created for the purpose of producing negative content about the duchess, Hope Not Hate said.

A nun just read the riot act to Catholic bishops over clergy sex

  Sister Veronica Openibo, a Nigerian-born nun, is one of only three women to address an unprecedented Vatican summit on clergy sexual abuse.

  She did not waste the opportunity.In clear, direct and unsparing language, Openibo challenged the church’s cult

ure of silence on sexual issues and said priests are too often put on pedestals. Openibo also criticized the pr

actice of letting elderly clergy who had abused children retire quietly with their pension and good names in place.

  ”Let us not hide such events anymore because of the fear of making mistakes,” Openibo said after reading a searing summ

ary of abuse cases she has heard about during her work on sexual education in Nigeria.

  ”Too often we want to keep silent until the storm has passed! This storm will not pass by. O

ur credibility is at stake.”Sister Veronica Openibo stands next to Chicago Archbishop Cardinal Blas

e J. Cupich, left, and Father Tomaz Mavric as they wait for the Pope’s arrival at the beginning of the third day of a Vat

ican’s conference on clergy sex abuse.
At one point, Openibo appeared to look toward Pope Francis, who was sitting on the

dais to her right, when calling for a policy of “zero tolerance” toward clergy who abuse children.

The central bank will eliminate that interest rate margin

sooner or later, and guide commercial banks to lower lending rates closer to a market-determined level, Sun said.

“Theoretically, there is room for rate cuts of 1 percentage point,” said Zhang Tao, a

n analyst in the financial market department of China Construction Bank.

China has enacted both monetary and fiscal policies to offset downward pressure on eco

nomic growth this year. Some economists have predicted the growth rate may slip in the first quarter be

low the 6.4 percent of the past three months of 2018 because of factors such as trade tensions.

US Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell decided on Jan 30 to shelve a plan to keep raisi

ng interest rates because of possible risks to US growth. The European Central Bank stopped exp

anding quantitative easing and warned about the negative results of Brexit.

South Korea began paying for the U.S. military deplo

the early 1990s, after rebuilding its economy from the devastation of the 1950-1953 Korean War.

About 20 anti-U.S. activists rallied near the Foreign Ministry building in Seoul on Su

nday, chanting slogans like “No more money for U.S. troops.” No violence was reported.

“The United States government realizes that Korea does a lot for our alliance and peace an

d stability in the region,” chief U.S. negotiator Timothy Betts said Sunday in Seoul. “We are very pleased ou

r consultations resulted in agreement that will strengthen transparency and deepen our cooperation and the alliance.”

The deal, which involves the spending of South Korean taxpayer money, requires parliam

entary approval in South Korea, but not in the United States, according to Seoul’s Foreign Ministry.

The allies had failed to reach a new cost-sharing plan during some 10 rounds of tal

ks. A five-year 2014 deal that covered South Korea’s payment last year expired at the end of 2018.

Sun Qian had joined Guan Yu in escorting the two

Sun Qian had joined Guan Yu in escorting the two ladies, and they were on the road to Runan when

Xiahou Dun suddenly determined to pursue. So with a couple of hundred horse, Xiahou Dun set out.

When Xiahou Dun was seen approaching, Guan Yu bade Sun Qian go ahead with the carriage while he remained to deal with the pursuers.

  When they were near enough, Guan Yu said, “In coming after me thus you do not reinforce the magnanimity of your master!”

  Replied Xiahou Dun, “the Prime Minister has sent no definite instructions. You have caused

the death of several people, among them one of my commanders,

and so I have come to capture you! You have behaved most grossly. The Prime Minister will decide.”

  thereupon Xiahou Dun dashed forward with his spear ready to thrust.

  But at that moment a rider came up behind him at full gallop, crying, “You must not fight with Guan Yu!”

  Guan Yu stayed his steed at once and waited.

  the messenger came up, drew from his bosom an official letter, and said to Xiahou Dun, “The Prime Minister loves General Guan Yu for his

loyalty and honor, and fearing lest Guan Yu might be stopped at the various passes, he sent me with this letter to show when necessary at any point on the road.”

  “But this Guan Yu has slain several commanders of the passes. Does the Prime Minister know that?” said Xiahou Dun.

  the messenger said these things were unknown.

  “then,” said Xiahou Dun, “I will arrest him and take him to the Prime Minister, who may set him free or not as he wills.”

  “Do you think I fear anything you can do?” said Guan Yu getting wrathful.

  And he rode forward. Xiahou Dun, nothing loth, set his spear

and prepared for battle.

they met and had reached the tenth encounter when a second horseman came up at full speed, crying, “Generals, wait a little!”

  Xiahou Dun stayed his hand and asked the messenger, saying, “Am I to arrest him?”

  “No,” replied the messenger. “Fearing lest he should have

difficulties at the passes, the Prime Minister has sent me with a dispatch to say he is to be released.”

  “Did the Prime Minister know that he had slain several commanders on the way?”

 “He did not know!”

 “Since he was ignorant of that, I may not let this Guan Yu go,” and Xiahou Dun gave the signal to his men to close in round Guan Yu.

  But Guan Yu flourished his sword and made to attack them and a fight was again imminent, when a third rider appeared,
