LONDON — British lawmakers issued a scathing report Monday that calls for tougher rules to keep Facebook and other tech firms from acting like "digital gangsters" and intentionally violating data privacy and competition laws.

Feb 18, 2019

BERLIN — Berlin's Tierpark zoo says its latest baby polar bear is "a perky, strong girl." Keepers and vets were able to separate the 11-week old bear from mother Tonja for the first time to conduct a medical checkup, during which they also determined the cub's sex. The zoo said Friday that the as yet unnamed bear weighs 8.5 kilograms (18.7 pounds) and is 61 centimeters (24 inches) from head to tail.

Feb 18, 2019

LONDON — Piercing the roar of the crowd, in the searing heat of Guadalajara, Mexico, Gordon Banks heard Pele shout "Goal!" Aiming a header to bounce off the hard field, Pele was certain the ball would creep inside the England goalkeeper's right post and threw his arms into the air to celebrate what he thought was an opening goal for Brazil.
