Add Germany as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Germany news, video, and analysis from ABC News. Add InterestA German nurse who is already serving a life sentence for two murders has been charged with killing 97 more patients over several years at two hospitals in northwestern Germany, prosecutors said Monday.

Of the new cases, 62 involve patients who died in Delmenhorst and 35 patients in Oldenburg. Prosecutor Martin Koziolek said that, in three further cases investigators viewed as suspicious, tests didn't produce enough evidence to add them to the charge sheet.

An elderly man walks by the wreckage of the Afrika newspaper office after it was attacked from supporters of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Turkish occupied northern part of the divided capital Nicosia, Cyprus, Monday, Jan. 22, 2018. (Petros Karadjias/Associated Press)NICOSIA, Cyprus — The editor-in-chief of a left-wing Turkish Cypriot newspaper alleged that Turkey’s president incited supporters to attack the publication’s office Monday because the paper had criticized Ankara’s military offensive in Syria. Editor Sener Levent said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged supporters to “answer” Afrika for suggesting that Turkey’s offensive into a Syrian enclave controlled by a U.S.-backed Syrian Kurdish militia was a bid to occupy that country’s territory. Only Turkey recognizes a Turkish Cypriot declaration of independence. According to the Turkish presidency’s website, Erdogan earlier called Afrika “a cheap and nasty newspaper” that ran an “impertinent” headline and invited Turkish Cypriots to “give the necessary response to this.”In a statement, Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci said he disapproved of Afrika’s “occupation” reference.

With time, each of those dreams became a reality — the Hubble Space Telescope, the twin Voyager spacecraft, the Apollo program. It will fly within 4 million miles of the sun's surface — seven times closer than any spacecraft has gotten before. Members of the integration and testing team roll Parker Solar Probe into the acoustic test chamber at Goddard. The Parker Solar Probe descends into the thermal vacuum chamber at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Additionally, the solar probe's heat shield can withstand temperatures up to 2,600 F degrees, not 3,000.

The good news is, depending upon what caused one partner to wander and how determined a couple is to remain together, infidelity need not result in divorce. “People who’ve been betrayed need to know that there’s no shame in staying in the marriage — they’re not doormats, they’re warriors,” Ms. Weiner-Davis said in an interview. He’s a wonderful father, a stimulating partner, and while our marriage isn’t perfect — whose is? One partner may spend endless hours and days on work, household chores, outside activities or even social media, to the neglect of their spouse’s emotional and sexual needs. She suggested that in selecting a therapist, couples ask if the therapist has any training and experience in treating infidelity and how successful the therapist has been in helping marriages heal.

We didn’t know what it was, yet, but for many of us, Ledger’s death felt like something new. For close observers, the pharmacopeia of this grim tally contained clues as to the nature and evolution of the opioid epidemic. But even the guys who’d juiced the opioid epidemic by jump-starting the Florida pill mill industry had no idea what they were getting into. Even four years after Ledger’s death, when I began my research, I felt like I’d stumbled into largely undiscovered territory. Unfortunately, that’s another lesson we’ve learned in the decade since Ledger’s death.
Before 1973′s Roe v. Wade, the problems were dangerous abortions and unequal access to safe abortions. At the same time, legal hospital abortions ― therapeutic abortions performed for medical reasons by physicians with anesthesia and antibiotics ― were, in contrast, extremely safe. Yet in the 1950s and 1960s, only a handful of women could get those safe, legal therapeutic abortions; they were almost exclusively well-to-do white women with private health insurance in private hospitals. Women of color or low-income women who went to public hospitals almost never obtained medical clearance for a legal abortion. This was an obstacle course designed to restrict legal abortions.
In the aftermath of World War I, a new “national origins” quota system sought to turn back the American demographic clock, with European immigrants admitted in proportion to the presence of their “nationality” in the American population based on earlier censuses. Sign Up You agree to receive occasional updates and special offers for The New York Times's products and services. The prevailing questions we’re conditioned to ask about immigrants have all been deeply shaped by histories of racial restriction. Elites in the United States and elsewhere — long before Donald Trump’s presidency — have long known they could sustain their power by capitalizing on, deepening and, where necessary, inventing divisions between self and other, friend and enemy. To the white nationalists’ war cry against migrants, “You will not replace us,” we can and should reply, as have many before, “You will not divide us.”

Serena Williams, tennis extraordinaire and one of the greatest athletes of all time, announced earlier this month that she would not be making her postpartum Grand Slam return at this year’s Australian Open. But beyond asking if Serena will retire: Can she? Play soon, play more, play better, be the best, be gracious, be tough, be beautiful, be humble, be calm, be happy, be serious, entertain us, win, win and win again. When the time does come for Serena to exit the tour, women’s tennis will move on; it always does. So maybe instead of asking if Serena can retire, perhaps the right question is: Can we let go of the idea of her, allow others to blossom and achieve in their own ways, and allow Serena to do the same?

Immigration authorities arrested Polish doctor and green-card holder Lukasz Niec on Jan. 16. With a renewed green card, and nearly 40 years in the country, his Polish nationality was an afterthought for Niec, his sister told The Washington Post. But on Tuesday morning, immigration authorities arrested Niec at his home, just after he had sent his 12-year-old stepdaughter off to school. (Monica Akhtar/The Washington Post)According to Kalamazoo County court records cited by MLive, Niec also pleaded guilty in 2008 to operating impaired by liquor. But under previous administrations, immigration authorities have often let low-level offenders off the hook, prioritizing the deportations of violent criminals.

Brazil's largest landfill closed this month leaving thousands of scavengers, and the 35,000 people living nearby, fearing more poverty and an increase in crime while the economy struggles to provide jobs. We followed Sandra Montes and her husband Emerson Oliveira de Souza as they trawled through tons of waste just days before the site closed. So she turned to rummaging through Latin America’s largest dump looking for recyclables to sell, clothes to wear and toys to give her children. Now she and her fellow scavengers at the Estrutural landfill will have to find work elsewhere. Nearly 60 years after Brazil carved a modernist capital out of its wind-swept central plateau and began dumping its solid...
