Oxfam revelations lead to more accountability for charities
It said van Hauwermeiren resigned from Oxfam in 2011, after admitting that prostitutes had visited his villa in Haiti. It said Oxfam's investigation into the charges was hampered by a "determination to keep it out of the public eye".

Apple's TV app got an upgrade this week as a dedicated section for live news has been added to the front page. On the one hand, it will give a little more attention to "For You" section: Apple has never detailed how much it is used compared to the rest of Apple News but I'm guessing less than what's at the top of the app when you first open it. You can even track medals using the app and using the News widget on iPhone and iPad you can track results without launching the app. Unless you've already downloaded a given network's app, tapping on any of the channels requires you to download the app, after which live news video will quickly begin playing. It appears to be live for users running the latest iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5 releases. For users who don't have a particular news app installed, the TV app prompts for it to be installed from the App Store. It will also include a planner for people to figure out what is showing when, and let you add events you want to watch to your calendar. For example, users can ask Siri to show a Bloomberg broadcast, which will trigger the live stream, notes TechCrunch.
