Manchester United manager Ten Hag to stay: Report
Quick Glance: Erik ten Hag to Remain as Manchester United Manager
  • Following the conclusion of the club's season review, it was decided that Erik ten Hag will continue as the manager of Manchester United. There was a period of significant uncertainty surrounding Ten Hag's future, but after discussions with the 54-year-old, both the club's leadership and himself were interested in extending his tenure.

  • Ten Hag's current contract at United runs until next June with the option of a 12-month extension. Both parties will now engage in negotiations to extend these terms. Despite the disappointment in the Champions League group stage and exiting the EFL Cup in the fourth round, they managed to secure the FA Cup. This led to the decision to move forward with Ten Hag.

Quick Glance: Baltimore Bridge Reopens After Nearly Eleven Weeks
  • The full channel of the Patapsco River in Baltimore reopened almost eleven weeks after the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge by a cargo ship, which resulted in the death of six construction workers.

  • Following the collision with the bridge, the ship Dali had to have damaged cargo containers and bridge parts removed from its deck before being able to be moved.

  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers cleared the Fort McHenry Federal Channel after approximately 50,000 tons of bridge debris were removed. Maryland plans to construct a new bridge by fall 2028.

  • The bridge collapse led to increased traffic on the other two interstate crossings of the Patapsco in Baltimore, as the Port of Baltimore was temporarily closed and shipping was suspended.

  • While Netanyahu still controls a majority coalition in parliament, he becomes more reliant on far-right allies who oppose the latest U.S.-backed cease-fire proposal.

  • Gantz, a popular former military chief with good relations with U.S. officials, is calling for elections in the fall, potentially shifting the government towards extremist members.

  • Gantz's departure from the war Cabinet is seen as a symbolic move driven by his frustration with Netanyahu, potentially escalating reliance on right-wing members within the government.

South Korea blasts loudspeaker broadcasts after North's trash balloons - CNA
Quick Glance: North Korea Sends More Trash Balloons Amid Kim's Sister's Warning of 'New Counteraction'
  • After Kim Jong Un’s sister warned of further responses to the South’s “psychological warfare,” North Korea sent a new wave of trash-laden balloons toward its southern neighbor.

  • Last week, the South Korean government suspended a 2018 deal to reduce military tensions with the North, allowing for the resumption of propaganda broadcasts and potential military exercises along the border.

  • In recent weeks, North Korea has floated over a thousand trash-filled balloons across the heavily fortified border as a purported response to the long-standing practice of South Korean activist groups sending anti-North Korea leaflets via balloons.

  • Earlier this year, a South Korean research group released rare footage depicting North Korean teenagers undergoing hard labor as a consequence of watching and distributing K-dramas.
