ArtSEA: The downtown Seattle art collection hiding in plain sight Attribution+  — Today marks the one-year anniversary of a downtown Seattle office lobby renovation — which sounds like no big whoop, except that this lobby is packed with Northwest art. “It’s kind of under the radar,” curator Sallyann Corn told me over the phone after I recently visited and was wowed by the range of works. “It’s like a secret collection no one knows about yet.”  Corn is co-founder of fruitsuper, the Seattle design studio (and gallery/wine bar/home decor store) that was brought in by the US Bank Center to design a wall of art for the company’s totally revamped public lobby. The three-story, certified-LEED Gold space is now called Cedar Hall and features works by more than 30 artists, most local. Longtime Seattleites may remember the building as the former home of FAO Schwarz, which featured a 15-foot-tall, 5,000-pound bronze teddy bear positioned in front of the Sixth Avenue and Pike Street entrance from 1995-2004.  I never shopped at the toy store but I remember seeing movies at the Loews Cineplex in the same complex, a curious mix of stores formerly called City Centre. Until 2019, the popular post-work, pre-performance joint Palomino was housed on the third floor, and for a time the Toss’d salad stall in the first-floor atrium was my go-to lunch spot, despite its regrettable name. Now the lobby is a rich blend of textures and tiles courtesy of local SkB Architects, who with furniture-sourcing studio objekts have turned the space into a welcoming wash of Northwest greens where visitors are encouraged to work, hang out and take in the impressive USBC public art collection. “Artifact Series #14: Offering” (1989) by glass artist William Morris is one of the large-scale pieces on view in the Cedar Hall public facility. (USBC) Fruitsuper was responsible for one large wall next to the escalators, a grouping of 23 artworks called All Along. “The pitch was a family portrait wall at home, going up the stairs from baby to high school to marriage,” Corn explained. But instead of a literal timeline of local art, “I saw it as a past/present/future of Pacific Northwest creatives,” she said, “with artists in different stages of their careers.” Included in All Along’s lively mix is a quilt from Joey Veltkamp’s ferry series, a glass sculpture by Fumi Amano and a deconstructed canvas by Ko Kirk Yamahira. See also Dan Friday’s bulbous “Watcher Totem,” which presented a new challenge for the Lummi glass artist, who rarely does wall-mounted work.  Another challenge Corn noted: “The grab zone,” she said, laughing. “The 3D pieces had to be mounted in such a way that people can’t reach out and touch them.”  I did not attempt to touch the art, however I was the nutty person taking repeat trips up and down the escalator to see all the pieces. But no one seemed to mind. The building is still seeking retail and office tenants, so for the moment you can pretend the whole chic setting is your own expertly designed workspace. When I was there just a few people were using the many public seating areas — one person on a laptop under RYAN! Feddersen’s lovely 2023 triptych Biologic Ethos, a graphic take on native plant species; and a small cluster of folks eating Jimmy John’s sandwiches near a 12-foot by 17-foot installation by Dale Chihuly. A couple of the Cedar Hall pieces were commissioned for USBC’s original opening collection in 1989 (then curated by Margery Aronson), including the Chihuly and a massive sculpture by another superstar of glass, William Morris. The latter, “Artifact Series #14: Offering,” resembles the rib cage of a giant creature with a human skeleton inside it. It’s (so far) the only piece on the third floor and definitely worth heading up to see it shine. The rest of the works on view were curated by Cortney Lederer of CNL Projects in Chicago, and include some locally made stunners: John Grade’s “Coming Soon: Swell,” an enormous hanging version of microscopic marine organisms; several glowing cut-paper works by Barbara Earl Thomas; large abstract pieces by Moses Sun and Etsuko Ichikawa — the list goes on! The new Seattle Convention Center has a killer array of local art too, but you can only see it if you're attending a convention. So I left Cedar Hall feeling excited about this approach to making art accessible, and eager to share this under-the-radar art collection with summer visitors. Seattle Rep (seen here) and Seattle Children's Theatre are banding together to cut costs in a difficult arts economy. (Seattle Repertory Theatre) Arts news nuggets Speaking of places for showcasing art … This season has seen a lot of news about local venues struggling. As the fiscal year comes to an end (and the last of the COVID funding fizzles out), Seattle arts spaces are taking various approaches on moving forward.  Back in my Memorial Day Weekend newsletter I shared an update on urgent financial concerns at Taproot Theatre, Hugo House and Bellevue Arts Museum. Now we hear that cinema gem Scarecrow Video needs to raise $1.8 million and fast; and longstanding music club Cafe Racer is closing (but hopes to reinvent itself, yet again!). Meanwhile, theater venues are getting creative: Seattle Rep and Seattle Children’s Theatre announced this week that the two organizations will combine cost-cutting forces by sharing box office and administrative services. In a similar vein, ACT Theatre and Seattle Shakespeare are in talks to merge the two theater companies (with Seattle Shakespeare moving performances to ACT’s Eagles Auditorium). Stay tuned. And in great news: The sleek new Field Hall events space is up and running in Port Angeles, with a packed arts schedule to consider for your summer road trips. And the City of Seattle is opening a new filmmaking hub at Seattle Center. Called the M5 Creative Building, it’s available for short-term rental by film production crews and for related meetings, events and workshops. (Perhaps I can show you around — it’s the former KCTS/Crosscut building!)

Border Patrol reports arrests down 25% since Biden announced asylum restrictions  Public Domain  — washington — The number of arrests by Border Patrol agents of people crossing illegally into the United States fell in May to the third lowest of any month during the Biden presidency, while preliminary figures released Thursday show encounters with migrants falling even more in the roughly two weeks since the president announced new rules restricting asylum.  The figures are likely welcome news for a White House that has been struggling to show to voters concerned about immigration that it has control of the southern border. But the number of people coming to the border is often in flux, dependent on conditions in countries far from the U.S. and on smugglers who profit from global migration.  The Border Patrol made 117,900 arrests of people entering the country between the official border crossing points in May, Customs and Border Protection said in a news release. That's 9% lower than during April, the agency said. The agency said preliminary data since President Joe Biden's June 4 announcement restricting asylum access show arrests have fallen by 25%.  "Our enforcement efforts are continuing to reduce Southwest border encounters. But the fact remains that our immigration system is not resourced for what we are seeing," said Troy A. Miller, the acting head of CBP.  The U.S. has also benefited from aggressive enforcement on the Mexican side of the border, where Mexican authorities have been working to prevent migrants from making their way to the U.S.-Mexico border.  The figures are part of a range of data related to immigration, trade and drug seizures that the CBP releases monthly. The immigration-related figures are closely watched at a time of intense political scrutiny over who is entering the country and whether the Biden administration has a handle on the situation.  Immigration is a top concern for voters, with many saying Biden hasn't been doing enough to secure the country's borders. Former President Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, has made immigration a cornerstone of his campaign by saying he's going to deport people in the country illegally en masse and take other measures to crack down on immigration.  After Biden announced his plan to restrict asylum access at the southern border, opponents sued, saying it was no different from a similar effort under Trump. ...

Segunda emissão de títulos verdes rende US$ 2 bi com taxas menores Attribution+  —  A segunda emissão de títulos públicos sustentáveis no mercado internacional, realizada nesta quinta-feira (20), rendeu US$ 2 bilhões (cerca de R$ 10 bilhões), informou há pouco o Tesouro Nacional. O valor confirmou as estimativas mais recentes apresentadas pelo órgão. Os papéis pagarão taxa de retorno (juros) de 6,375% ao ano. Isso significa que o governo brasileiro pagará os US$ 2 bilhões levantados na Bolsa de Nova York com correção de 6,375% ao ano no vencimento dos papéis. Na primeira emissão, realizada em novembro do ano passado, os investidores pediram taxas de 6,5% ao ano. Notícias relacionadas:Novos títulos verdes financiarão economia circular e saneamento.Meio ambiente receberá até 60% dos recursos de títulos verdes.O spread, diferença entre a taxa dos papéis brasileiros e os títulos do Tesouro norte-americano, considerados os papéis mais seguros do mundo ficou em 212,8 pontos-base. Isso equivale a 2,128 pontos percentuais acima dos papéis dos Estados Unidos. Tanto a taxa de juros como o spread funcionam como uma medida da confiança dos investidores em relação ao Brasil. Quanto mais baixos, maior a confiança nos papéis brasileiros no exterior. Na primeira emissão, o spread tinha ficado em 181,9 pontos, o que reflete o endurecimento das condições no mercado financeiro internacional nos últimos meses. A demanda superou a oferta. Segundo o Tesouro Nacional, os pedidos totalizaram US$ 4,7 bilhões. Houve expressiva participação de investidores estrangeiros, com 77% dos compradores da Europa e da América do Norte. A América Latina, incluindo o Brasil, respondeu por 14% das compras. Investimento sustentável Papéis federais lançados no exterior, os títulos verdes são vinculados a compromissos com o meio ambiente. Em vez de receber meros juros financeiros, investidores estrangeiros receberiam os rendimentos de um projeto sustentável, que ficarão em 6,375% ao ano para os compradores dos títulos. Em maio, o Tesouro tinha anunciado que os recursos levantados com a segunda emissão no mercado externo financiariam principalmente projetos de saneamento e de economia circular. Na primeira emissão, em novembro, a prioridade tinha sido dada a projetos de transporte limpos (20% a 25%) e de energia renovável (15% a 20%), no meio ambiente. Os títulos verdes são um dos pilares do Plano de Transformação Ecológica, anunciado pelo Brasil na 28ª Conferência das Nações Unidas sobre Mudanças Climáticas de 2023 (COP28), realizada em Dubai em dezembro.

State budget amendments appear unlikely before Labor Day Attribution+  —  (The Center Square) – Adjustments to the state budget at the midpoint of its two-year life, as often happens, appear to be a longshot this year for North Carolina lawmakers. Three-fifths majorities of Republicans are in each chamber, and they’ll need to either craft separate legislation or come together on very different plans to push $487 million toward school choice. Without it, it'll only be about $100 million as planned and the waiting list of some 55,000 students will not go away as lawmakers have intended. That’s one thing the Senate and House of Representatives agreed on in spending plans for 2024-25 of $31.4 billion and $31.7 billion, respectively. And it is the one thing on Thursday drawing a social media remark by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper. He wrote, “Republican legislators have proposed two terrible budgets that steal billions in taxpayer money from public schools and child care to pay for private school vouchers millionaires will use. As we’ve seen in other states, this damages our budget, economy and workforce.” For context, Cooper has made multiple overseas visits and courted several companies on his green agenda waiving taxpayer dollars at them to come to the state. For example, Toyota – with $311 billion in net revenue in the 12 months ending March 31 – is building a $13.9 billion plant in Liberty with the state providing up to $315 million in tax benefits over 39 years, plus $185 million in site development funds. In another deal last month not involving a foreign company in the energy industry, California-headquartered Ross with $20.4 billion in 2023 revenue was lured to Randolph County with $7.6 million in taxpayer-funded subsidies. Economists question the effectiveness of publicly funded financial incentives to private businesses to expand or come to a new state. The two GOP chamber leaders have talked with pride about those deals, too. Headed to Friday, the House’s budget adjustment bill has been approved by the full chamber. The second of two votes needed came Thursday. The Senate’s spending plan went through the Appropriations Committee on Thursday and is likely to get a full floor vote Monday night. House Speaker Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, and Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, each talked to reporters at the end of the day. Both expressed optimism their chamber would do well if and when there is negotiation, but seemed resigned to a summer without a deal. With some lawmakers already signaling personal plans after the Fourth of July, and based on conversations by Moore and Berger on Thursday, a deal before Labor Day – if ever – doesn't look promising. State law dictates anytime a budget is not agreed upon by the two chambers and governor, the last plan – this one is $60.7 billion over the two years – remains in place. The two-year budget agreed to on Sept. 22 will begin its second year on July 1 unless there are adjustments. Berger said senators are ready to go into the new fiscal year as is, saying the House has yet to be serious. Moore said his chamber had no plans to even hear the Senate bill. In addition to Opportunity Scholarships that allow students and families to pick any school, whether public, public charter or private, the two chambers were also in agreement on about $135 million to close a federal gap for child center grants. It expires in July. That aid was supported and encouraged by Cooper in a social media post on Wednesday, though he said hundreds of millions were needed. ... The Center Square 34 min

Australia’s first civilian jury was entirely female. Here’s how ‘juries of matrons’ shaped our legal... CC BY-ND  — A French jury of matrons in 1771. British Museum, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons, CC BY-NC-SAIt’s hard to imagine now, but for almost 1,000 years, pregnant women in England could avoid the death penalty just by virtue of being pregnant. A pregnant woman sentenced to death would receive a stay of execution until the baby was born. It was called “pleading the belly” and often resulted the death sentence being reduced to a less severe penalty once the pregnancy was over. Of course, anyone could say they’re pregnant without actually being with child. So how did courts determine whether it was true? It was standard practice to assemble all-female juries, called “juries of matrons”, to determine whether a woman was pregnant and could therefore avoid hanging for capital offences. These were also features of Australia’s colonial legal system, with juries of matrons being used in trials until the early 1900s. Exploring the history of these juries reveals how the roles of women in our legal systems have changed over time. It also shows a shift in beliefs about who is an expert in the female body, and who gets to make decisions about it. Highly regarded medical experts All-female juries existed as early as 1140 in England and persisted until 1931. Their role in the courts was highly regarded. They were medical experts. If they found the woman was “quick with child” (pregnant), their findings were not disputed. In addition to determining whether a woman was pregnant, they helped evaluate inheritance claims, examined females to determine whether they bore the physical marks of witchcraft, and decide whether a woman accused of infanticide had given birth. They provided expert medical testimony for the courts but were not necessarily midwives. This cartoon, imagining what women on juries would look like, was published in Life Magazine in the US in 1902. Charles Dana Gibson, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons These women were respectable, law-abiding women. Similar to their male counterparts, serving on a jury was a high-status privilege. There is evidence that from 1233 until 1435 in Newcastle upon Tyne, an official pool of matrons existed. They held an appointed position in the court. Australia’s first civilian jury Historically, we tend think of juries as only being comprised of males, yet these all-female juries also existed in colonial America and in Australia and New Zealand until the early 1900s. In fact, Australia’s first civilian jury was an all-female jury of matrons. In 1789, Ann Davis was found guilty of stealing items of clothing. This theft was a capital offence. She “pleaded the belly”. An all-female jury of matrons was convened to assess her claims, marking the first time a civilian jury was used in Australia. More than 200 years ago, the 76-year-old forewoman of that jury found, “Gentlemen! She is as much with child as I am”. Her plea unsuccessful, Davis became the first woman hung in Australia. Another notable example of pleading the belly was Elizabeth McGree in South Australia. In 1883 she was charged with killing a man. The “powerfully built man” had been drinking with her husband that evening. After the husband passed out drunk, the man left the house, only to return in the early hours of the morning. An extract of the Border Watch newspaper from Mount Gambier on December 23 1882, discussing McGree’s case. Border Watch/National Library of Australia The forensic evidence demonstrated he kicked in the door, strangling McGree while also attempting to rape her. McGree’s 12-year-old son hit the man on the head with a hammer in an effort to stop the assault. After the initial blow, McGree started to beat the man with the hammer (who got up after her son’s first blow and wandered outside, promising not to touch her again) and stabbed him with a knife. McGree was found guilty, despite the forensic evidence, largely because she allowed the man to drink liquor at the house with her husband. She was sentenced to hang. Once found guilty, she pleaded the belly and a jury of matrons was called. They determined she was “quick with child”, and she dodged the noose. She later gave birth to her child in Gladstone Prison. Her death sentence was commuted to ten years. Read more: Health care offered to women in prison should match community standards – and their rights If the pregnancy resulted in birth, a reprieve from the noose was fairly common. This raised the concern among men that women might falsely plead the belly to avoid a capital offence. They worried a jury of matrons, being “naturally” sympathetic, might grant them a reprieve from death. While there is scant evidence this was the case, to address this concern, the laws around pleading the belly stipulated this plea could only be made once. If a pregnant woman was granted a reprieve from death to have the baby, she could be executed for any future crime – even if pregnant. Women “too irrational” for courts By the late 1800s, suspicion that juries of matrons were “soft” and that women were abusing the belly plea merged with concerns that women were “too irrational, too burdened by suckling infants, too sexually ignorant or too easily corrupted by sexual knowledge” to have a role in courts. These concerns, along with the rise of medical professionals and the invention of the stethoscope, shifted the balance of power away from the jury of matrons and towards male medical officers. Who had expert knowledge of the female body shifted. Until this point, women determined whether the fetus was alive by examining the women and feeling for signs of fetal movement or “quickening”. Quickening was considered the moment the fetus becomes animated with a soul, and thus fully human. Women were historically the ones deciding the stages of pregnancy, but that responsibility eventually moved to doctors. Jacques Pierre Maygrier/Wellcome Collection, CC BY Now, the stethoscope could detect a fetal heartbeat. This was considered a more reliable method of establishing pregnancy. The jury of matrons disappeared from the courts in Australia. It was another 50 years before women in Australia would be allowed to serve on juries. Progress, in terms of female representation, is rarely linear. Juries of matrons were an extraordinary example of women having an official role in a justice system otherwise dominated by men. The examples of women pleading the belly provide a glimpse the role and interactions women had in Australia’s early legal systems.

A US veteran died alone; hundreds of strangers came to say goodbye Public Domain  — AUGUSTA, Maine — Former U.S. Marine Gerry Brooks died alone at a nursing home in Maine, abandoned and all but forgotten. Then the funeral home posted a notice asking if anyone would serve as a pallbearer or simply attend his burial.  Within minutes, it was turning away volunteers to carry his casket.  A bagpiper came forward to play at the service. A pilot offered to perform a flyover. Military groups across the state pledged a proper sendoff.  Hundreds of people who knew nothing about the 86-year-old beyond his name showed up on a sweltering afternoon and gave Brooks a final salute with full military honors Thursday at the Maine Veterans' Memorial Cemetery in Augusta.  Patriot Guard Riders on motorcycles escorted his hearse on the 40-mile route from the funeral home in Belfast, Maine, to the cemetery. Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars paid tribute with a 21-gun salute. Volunteers held American flags next to the casket while a crane hoisted a huge flag above the cemetery entrance.  Some saluted while filing by. Others sang The Marines' Hymn.  "It's an honor for us to be able to do this," said Jim Roberts, commander of the VFW post in Belfast. "There's so much negativity in the world. This is something people can feel good about and rally around. It's just absolutely wonderful." He said Brooks' son, granddaughter and son-in-law came to the funeral but did not speak during the service.  'We will always be there' The VFW is called a couple times a year about a deceased veteran with no family or with one that isn't willing to handle the funeral arrangements, said Roberts. But "we will always be there." Like other veterans helping out Thursday, he hadn't known Brooks.  So many groups volunteered to take part in paying tribute that there wasn't enough space to fit them into the 20-minute burial service, said Katie Riposta, the funeral director who put out the call for help last week.  "It renews your faith in humanity," she said.  More than 8 million of the U.S. veterans living are 65 or older, almost half the veteran population. They are overwhelmingly men. That's according to a U.S. Census Bureau report last year. As this generation dies, it said, their collective memory of wartime experiences "will pass into history."  A master of 'dad jokes' Much about Brooks' life is unknown.  He was widowed and lived in Augusta. He died on May 18, less than a week after entering a nursing home, Riposta said. A cause of death was not released.  The funeral home and authorities reached his next of kin, but no one was willing to come forward or take responsibility for his body, she said.  "It sounds like he was a good person, but I know nothing about his life," Riposta said, noting that after Brooks' death, a woman contacted the funeral home to say he had once taken her in when she had no other place to go, with no details.  "It doesn't matter if he served one day or made the military his career," she said. "He still deserves to be respected and not alone."  The crowd on Thursday wasn't all strangers — and it turned out Brooks hadn't been one, either.  Victoria Abbott, executive director of the Bread of Life shelter in Augusta, said he had come every day to eat at their soup kitchen, always ready to crack "dad jokes" and make the staff smile. He had a favorite table.  "Your quintessential 80-year-old, dad jokes every day," Abbott said. "He was really great to have around. He was part of the soup kitchen family."  But most people there Thursday met him too late. The memorial book posted online by Direct Cremation of Maine, which helped to arrange the burial, had a few strangers' good wishes.  "Sir," one began, and ended with "Semper Fi."  The two others, a couple, thanked Brooks for his service. "We all deserve the love kindness and respect when we are called home. I hope that you lived a full beautiful life of Love, Kindness, Dreams and Hope," they wrote.  They added: "Thank you to all those who will make this gentleman's service a proper, well-deserved goodbye."  Linda Laweryson, who served in the Marines, said this was the second funeral in little over a year that she has attended for a veteran who died alone. Everyone deserves to die with dignity and be buried with dignity, she said.  Laweryson read a poem during the graveside service written by a combat Marine who reflects on the spot where Marines graduate from boot camp.  "I walked the old parade ground, but I was not alone," the poem reads. "I walked the old parade ground and knew that I was home."  ... Voice of America 53 min
North Carolina grant adds another $2M to Vietnamese company project Attribution+  —  (The Center Square) – In addition to the $8 million from taxpayers already announced, an additional $2 million will be provided to the city of Greenville welcoming a Vietnamese solar company that chose eastern North Carolina. Boviet Solar, builder of solar panels and photovoltaic cells for American commercial, residential and industrial customers, is locating a $294 million plant in the Pitt County seat of Greenville. The Department of Commerce on Thursday said it granted the city $2 million through the state Rural Infrastructure Authority to assist in adding a substation to support the expansion. Two months ago, the Commerce Department approved a job development investment grant of $8.279 million to Boviet over 12 years that brought its total state and local incentives to $34.6 million. The company and state say 900 new jobs will come from the project. A 1 million square-foot manufacturing plant is planned. The plant’s employees, including engineers and production workers, will be paid average salaries that are higher than the average of $50,937 paid in Pitt County, according to the state. Economists question the effectiveness of taxpayer-funded financial incentives to private businesses to expand or come to a new state. Thursday’s announcement by the Rural Infrastructure Authority included 20 grant requests awarded for a total of $8.6 million. State leaders say there is $474 million in public and private investment associated with the projects. The infrastructure authority is part of the economic development arm at the Commerce Department. Grant and loan programs are offered and managed by the Rural Economic Development Division. ... The Center Square 54 min

Iran's presidential candidates focus on economy in 2nd debate   Public Domain  — TEHRAN, Iran — In the second live debate on state television, six presidential candidates on Thursday discussed Iran's economic problems ahead of the country's June 28 election.  Three more debates are planned in the days before the vote in a shortened campaign to replace Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline protege of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei once thought to be a possible successor to the 85-year-old cleric. Raisi and seven others died in a helicopter crash in May.  Like the first debate, the second one also related to economics, with the candidates discussing their proposals for Iran's spiraling economy, which is struggling under sanctions imposed by the United States and other Western nations.  The candidates also discussed inflation, the budget deficit, fuel consumption subsidies and education. They all promised to try to get the sanctions lifted and to introduce reforms, but none offered concrete details.  "Negotiation is a method of struggle," said prominent candidate Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, 62, with regards to getting the Western sanctions on Iran lifted. Qalibaf is a former Tehran mayor with close ties to the country's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard.  He emphasized the destructiveness of the sanctions on the economy and said that Iranians have a right to a good life, not just an ordinary life.  Iran's vice president, Amir Hossein Qazizadeh Hashemi, 53, said he would continue Raisi's unfinished administration and vowed to develop the tourism industry.  Regarding the health sector and the emigration of doctors and nurses, Qalibaf said there should be a fundamental change in the way health workers are paid to increase the motivation to stay.  Many doctors and nurses reportedly have left Iran in recent years over its deepening economic woes and poor working conditions. Qalibaf's call for more pay for health workers was repeated by the other candidates.  All the candidates said they believed the Education Ministry was the most important part of the government because "the next generation of the country is raised in this ministry." Qalibaf said the ministry's budget must be increased.  The one pro-reform candidate, Masoud Pezeshkian, who is backed by pro-reform figures such as former President Mohammad Khatami and former Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, thinks the economic crisis can be resolved by solving party differences inside the country as well as external factors.  The June 28 election comes at a time of heightened tensions between Iran and the West over Tehran's rapidly advancing nuclear program, its arming of Russia in that country's war on Ukraine and its wide-reaching crackdowns on dissent.  Iran's support of militia proxy forces throughout the wider Middle East, meanwhile, has been increasingly in the spotlight as Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels attack ships in the Red Sea over the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip. ...
