    Deliberately Visible: A New U.S. Syria Strategy

    Images have appeared in circulation showing a patrol of U.S. M1126 Strykers flying deliberately prominent U.S. flags in the Kurdish-held Manbij region of Northern Syria. After arriving in the town of Manbij, U.S. forces are rumoured to have contracted a local tailoring shop to procure large flags. The forces then proceeded to conduct a high-profile patrol around the city and its outlying villages that appears to have little tactical value. For the traditional Syria strategy of insertions of low-...

    Trump promised to wipe out Isis – perhaps he already has...

    Our current president is like no other. He has achieved that rare feat of being both straightforward and cryptic at the same time. He vowed to curtail Muslim immigration and, immediately on taking office, put the squeeze on the Sudanese. Thank God for that because if they actually had an airport, Sudanese people would be descending on America like drunken coach tourists at a Vegas Hooters.

    WikiLeaks publishes huge trove of 'CIA spying secrets'

    WikiLeaks has published a huge trove of what appear to be CIA spying secrets. The files are the most comprehensive release of US spying files ever made public, according to Julian Assange. In all, there are 8,761 documents that account for "the entire hacking capacity of the CIA", Mr Assange claimed in a release, and the trove is just the first of a series of "Vault 7" leaks. Already, the files include far more pages than the Snowden files that exposed the vast hacking power ...

    Deported gay Afghans told to ‘pretend to be straight’

    Gay Afghans can be deported to their home country, where homosexuality is illegal and “wholly taboo” and they must pretend to be straight, under new British government guidelines for handling asylum applications. The new guidance for a country where not a single citizen lives an openly gay life has been denounced by human rights groups as a violation of international law, and criticised by the Home Office’s own Afghanistan unit.

    TRAPPIST-1 Comparison to Solar System and Jovian Moons

    All seven planets discovered in orbit around the red dwarf star TRAPPIST-1 could easily fit inside the orbit of Mercury, the innermost planet of our solar system. In fact, they would have room to spare. TRAPPIST-1 also is only a fraction of the size of our sun; it isn't much larger than Jupiter. So the TRAPPIST-1 system's proportions look more like Jupiter and its moons than those of our solar system. The seven planets of TRAPPIST-1 are all Earth-sized and...

    After seven years of bailouts, Greeks sink yet deeper in poverty

    Greek pensioner Dimitra says she never imagined a life reduced to food handouts: some rice, two bags of pasta, a packet of chickpeas, some dates and a tin of milk for the month. At 73, Dimitra - who herself once helped the hard-up as a Red Cross food server - is among a growing number of Greeks barely getting by. After seven years of bailouts that poured billions of euros into their country, poverty isn't getting any better; it's getting worse like nowhere else in the EU.

    Trump's sons Eric and Donald Jr. open golf club in Dubai

    Two of U.S. President Donald Trump's sons ceremonially opened a Trump-branded golf club in Dubai on Saturday, meeting privately with Emirati elites as questions remain about how separated their father is from the empire bearing his name. Eric and Donald Trump Jr., who now lead the Trump Organization, watched as fireworks lit the sky over the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai, on the outskirts of the city-state home to the world's tallest building and other architectural marvels.

    This Battery Runs on Nothing but Dissolved CO2 and Air

    In our rapidly warming world, finding a cheap way to pull greenhouse gases from the atmosphere while satisfying our energy needs could be the key to our continued survival on Earth in the centuries to come. And new research has brought us one step closer by developing a rechargeable battery that runs on solutions of carbon dioxide and air. In the past, resesrchers have used greenhouse gas emissions to create an energy source by converting CO2 directly into a fuel such as ethanol, skipping the ne...
