|An Indonesian monkey who shot to fame after it snapped a grinning selfie -- and sparked a landmark US copyright case -- was named "Person of the Year" Wednesday by the animal rights group that took on the simian's cause.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said it was honouring Naruto coach value spree outlet , a crested black macaque with a goofy-looking grin, to recognise that "he is someone, not something".
In 2011 coach tote bags outlet clearance , the monkey pressed the shutter button while staring down the lens of a camera set up British nature photographer David Slater on the island of Sulawesi.
The photos quickly went viral and PETA launched a lawsuit that claimed the then six-year-old Naruto should be "declared the author and owner of his photograph".
"Naruto's historic selfie challenged the idea of who is a person and who is not and resulted in the first-ever lawsuit seeking to declare a nonhuman animal the owner of property, rather than being declared property himself," PETA Founder Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement Wednesday.
The court case set off an international debate among legal experts about personhood for animals and whether they can own property.
Slater maintained he owned the rights to the pictures since he engineered its creation -- setting up the tripod and walking away for a few minutes coach tote bags outlet , only to find out that the monkey had grabbed his camera and snapped away.
The British photographer won the first hearing in California but PETA then appealed to a higher court.
The case was settled in September -- before that court could make a ruling -- with Slater agreeing to donate 25 percent of any future revenue from using or selling the monkey selfies to help protect the habitat of crested macaques in Indonesia.
Authorities and activists have been trying to persuade villagers on Sulawesi to stop consuming the critically endangered monkeys, one of many creatures that form part of the local indigenous community's diet.
Some 169 Russian athletes have been cleared to compete at the Pyeongchang Olympic Games next month, but not the top ones coach shoulder bags outlet clearance , a Russian Olympic Committee official has said.
"Unfortunately, our top athletes did not make it onto this list," Stanislav Pozdnyakov coach shoulder bags outlet , the vice-president of the Russian Olympic Committee, told reporters without saying which athletes won't compete.
"Those 169 people are those who will defend our country's honour at the PyeongChang Olympic Games."
The announcement comes after Russian sports officials said several of the country's top competitors, including short-track speed skater Viktor Ahn and biathlete Anton Shipulin coach satchel bag outlet clearance , had not made it onto the International Olympic Committee (IOC) list of athletes eligible to compete in Pyeongchang.
Russia's figure skating federation said this week that pairs skater Ksenia Stolbova, who won silver at the European championships with partner Fedor Klimov in Moscow last week, and ice dancer Ivan Bukin coach satchel bag outlet , who won bronze with Alexandra Stepanova, had not been included on the IOC's list.
The IOC banned Russia last month from PyeongChang over "systematic manipulation" of the anti-doping system at the 2014 Sochi Games. It left the door open to athletes with no history of doping to compete as "Olympic Athletes from Russia".
The Olympic body earlier this week said that the exclusion of certain athletes from the list of eligible Russians did not necessarily mean they had doped.
Speaking alongside Pozdnyakov at the Russia's Olympic Committee, Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov said Russia would take legal measures to defend the athletes excluded from the Olympics.
"We will fight for every last athlete coach luggage bags outlet clearance ," Kolobkov said. "We are really hoping for a fair decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport."
He added that Russia was planning to organise alternative competitions for the athletes excluded from the Olympics.(Agencies)
Britain will not “surrender” in its fight to win a bespoke deal with the European Union that would offer tariff-free trade as well as control over immigration, a minister said Sunday before a crunch week for the government in Brexit negotiations.
Interior Minister Amber Rudd was one of several senior Conservative lawmakers to take to the airwaves to support Prime Minister Theresa May, under pressure from Brexit hardliners who fear she is diluting her plans for a clean break with the EU.
With reports in the local media suggesting that pro-Brexit ministers are being urged to get ready to replace May coach luggage bags outlet , Rudd tried to play down the deep divisions in government, saying there was more unity than so-called Brexiteers thought.
“We want to have a bespoke agreement. Now we’re not going to surrender before we have that battle,” Rudd told the BBC when asked whether ministers were pursuing what the EU has already ruled out as “having its cake and eating it” — demanding tariff-free access to the EU’s market while controlling immigration.
She also told the Andrew Marr Show she supported May in demanding that EU citizens arriving after Brexit Day in March 2019 should have settlement rights different to those who came before that date — something the EU has opposed.
Asked whether Brexit campaigners were right to say that some in the Cabinet were trying to blunt prospects for a wholesale departure from the EU coach hobo bags outlet clearance , Rudd said: “I have a surprise for the Brexiteers, which is the committee that meets in order to help make these decisions ... is more united than they think.”
Her words come at the beginning of a week when the government will flesh out some of its demands in negotiations with the EU on their future relationship and Brexit discussions start in earnest again.
