“This will create a win-win-win situation for L.A., Paris and the entire Olympic movement,” the IOC president said, standing beside Garcetti.Macron brought his star quality to the Olympic capital city to open a bid campaign event that typically does not lure heads of state.The charismatic French president held an umbrella that helped keep his wife, Brigitte, dry on the walk up dozens of steps through landscaped gardens, past Olympic-themed statutes to a photo call at the entrance.After a one-hour visit, Macron talked of the Olympic Games’ place in a troubled world to “bring friendship between nations.”In a push to restore Russia’s sporting reputation after numerous doping scandals, the government has approved a plan to reclaim prize money and government grants from athletes who are found to be cheating.In a package of antidoping measures signed Monday, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the Russian Sports Ministry and national sports federations to develop a scheme for “confiscating income and property from athletes, coaches, doctors and other specialists” involved in doping cases.The Sports Ministry previously has faced allegations from World Anti-Doping Agency investigators that its own staff covered up doping.Besides prize money from competitions, Russian athletes often get lavish rewards from the state, and many keep them even if banned as drug cheats.Gold medalists from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, for example, received $70,000 from a public-private fund, plus a white BMW SUV in a ceremony at the Kremlin.

- Online hate speech may soon incur a hefty bill in Germany

The U.N.'s independent expert on freedom of speech, David Kaye, warned the German government earlier this month that the criteria for removing material were "vague and ambiguous," adding that the prospect of hefty fines could prompt social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter to delete questionable content without waiting for a court to rule it's unlawful.After World War II, the country criminalized Holocaust denial and any glorification of its Nazi past, citing the genocidal results such ideas produced as proof of the need to ban them from public debate.Calls to commit murder, threats, insults, incitement to hatred or the Auschwitz-lie (that Nazi death camps didn't exist) aren't expressions of freedom of opinion but attacks on the freedom of opinion of others.Maas blames unbridled social media for stoking tensions that have spilled into real-life violence such as arson attacks on asylum-seeker homes and attempts to kill pro-migrant politicians.Declining to provide her real name for fear of being targeted by political opponents, she described Twitter as a place for getting unfiltered, real-time information about crimes committed by immigrants — an issue she claims mainstream media suppress.— Companies can delegate the review process to an independent third party overseen by the Justice Ministry— a concession to critics who warned against putting censorship in the hands of private companies.Twitter and Facebook insist they are trying to address the problem of illegal content and hate speech, conscious of the fact that Germany's justice minister wants to take regulation to the European level as a next step.The company has faced a backlash elsewhere for perceived over-zealous removal of content, such as in the case of AP photographer Nick Ut's iconic "Napalm girl" photo taken during the Vietnam War of a naked girl fleeing an attack.
