월드뉴스: 미 국무장관, 이스라엘 반대에도 "예루살렘 영사관 재개관"

Let's take a look at what's going on in 'The World Now'.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday,... that the Biden administration plans to press ahead with its plan to reopen its Jerusalem consulate that traditionally engages with the Palestinians,... despite strong opposition from Israel.
The announcement comes as Washington's top diplomat reiterated a pledge he originally made months ago to re-establish the consulate,... which had long been a base of diplomatic outreach to the Palestinians before it was closed by former president Donald Trump.
However,... speaking at a news conference with visiting foreign ministers of Israel and the UAE,... Blinken stopped short of setting a date for the reopening.
The plans for reopening is part of the Biden administration's goal of repairing relations with the Palestinians,... which have been badly damaged under the Trump administration.
The consulate was subsumed into the U.S. Embassy that was moved to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv back in 2018 by Trump.
The Biden administration added it will reopen the consulate while leaving the embassy in place.

Star Trek's 'Captain Kirk' William Shatner flew aboard a Blue Origin rocket ship on Wednesday,... becoming the oldest person ever in space.
At the age of 90,... Shatner was one of four passengers to journey to the edge of space,... aboard the fully autonomous New Shepard spacecraft,... which took off from Texas.
The four passengers experienced about three to four minutes of weightlessness and traveled above the internationally recognized boundary of space,... before returning to Earth.
And for Shatner,... the experience was... literally out of this world.

"What you have given me is the most profound experience I can imagine. I'm so filled with emotion about what just happened. It's extraordinary, extraordinary. I hope that I never recover from this. I hope that I can maintain what I feel now. I don't want to lose it."

The space trip also marked the second space tourism flight for Blue Origin,... which billionaire businessman Jeff Bezos' company founded two decades ago.

The U.S. FDA on Tuesday authorized e-cigarette products for the first time ever,... allowing for the British American Tobacco to sell its 'Vuse' e-cigarettes and its cartridges used for refills.
The latest announcement comes as the FDA last month delayed its decision on whether Juul and other major e-cigarette manufacturers including BAT can sell their products in the U.S.,... as it weighed the public health impact of the products.
The FDA's director at the Center for Tobacco Products said the manufacturer's data showed its tobacco-flavored products could benefit addicted adult smokers with a significant reduction in cigarette consumption by reducing their exposure to harmful chemicals.
