  Americans own nearly half world's guns in civilian hands: survey   Mon, 18 Jun 2018 12:01:51 -0400

Americans own nearly half world's guns in civilian hands: surveyAmericans make up 4 percent of the world's population but owned about 46 percent of the estimated 857 million weapons in civilian hands at the end of 2017, a survey showed on Monday. The Small Arms Survey, an independent global research project based in Geneva, Switzerland, found that there were more than 1 billion firearms in the world, of which civilians owned 85 percent, while the rest were held by militaries or law enforcement agencies. The number of guns owned by civilians globally rose to 857 million in 2017 from 650 million in 2006, the survey said.

  Former Israeli government minister charged with spying for Iran   Mon, 18 Jun 2018 15:39:50 -0400

Former Israeli government minister charged with spying for IranA former Israeli government minister, once imprisoned for trying to smuggle drugs, is back behind bars after being charged with spying for archenemy Iran, the country's internal security agency said Monday. The Shin Bet, the Israeli security agency, said Gonen Segev was extradited from Guinea and arrested upon arrival in Israel last month on suspicion of "committing offenses of assisting the enemy in war and spying against the state of Israel." It said Mr Segev, a former energy minister, acted as an agent for Iranian intelligence and relayed information "connected to the energy market and security sites in Israel including buildings and officials in political and security organizations." Lawyers representing Mr Segev issued a statement that did not reject or accept the accusations, only saying that the indictment "portrays a different picture" than what the Shin Bet says. Mr Segev, who served in the Cabinet under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in the mid-1990s, was arrested in 2004 for attempting to smuggle 32,000 Ecstasy tablets from the Netherlands to Israel using an expired diplomatic passport.  Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin speaks with former energy minister Gonen Segev Credit: REUTERS/GPO A former doctor whose medical license was revoked, Mr Segev was released from prison in 2007 and had been living in Africa in recent years. The Shin Bet said Mr Segev met with his operators twice in Iran, and also met with Iranian agents in hotels and apartments around the world. Mr Segev was given a "secret communications system to encrypt messages" with his operators. The statement said that Mr Segev maintained connections with Israeli civilians who had ties to the country's security and foreign relations. It said he acted to connect them with Iranian agents who posed as businessmen. Israel and Iran are bitter enemies, and the allegations against Mr Segev are extremely grave. Israel considers Iran to be its biggest threat, citing Iranian calls for Israel's destruction, Iran's support for hostile militant groups like Hezbollah and its development of long-range missiles.

  Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on Mars   Mon, 18 Jun 2018 13:23:48 -0400

Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on MarsCould a volcanic eruption be the key to unlocking the mysterious geological history of Mars? Back in the 1960s, NASA's Mariner spacecraft discovered an extremely large and unusually soft rock formation. The makeup of the mass, now known as the Medusa Fossae formation, stumped researchers for decades because they were never able to determine how it got there.  SEE ALSO: Tiny NASA satellite bound for Mars snaps photo of Earth from thousands of miles away But now, new research seems to answer that question — and maybe many others.  More than 3 billion years ago, extreme volcanic eruptions on Mars dropped the huge deposit near the Martian equator, according to the new study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets. A 13-kilometer (8-mile) diameter crater being infilled by the Medusae Fossae Formation.Image: High Resolution Stereo Camera/European Space AgencyThe Medusa Fossae is about one fifth the size of the United States.  “This is a massive deposit, not only on a Martian scale, but also in terms of the solar system, because we do not know of any other deposit that is like this,” planetary scientist Lujendra Ojha, the lead author of the new study, said in a statement. Ojha and his colleagues used gravity data from spacecraft orbiting Mars to measure the formation density. Through this, they were able to determine that the rock was unusually porous, allowing them to rule out other potential compositions like ice.  On a basic level, the formation is a bunch of hills and mounds of sedimentary rock but because much of Mars’s history is shrouded in mystery, a finding like this is huge.  An isolated hill in the Medusae Fossae Formation. The effect of wind erosion on this hill is evident by its streamlined shape.Image: High Resolution Stereo Camera/European Space Agency.Eruptions of the magnitude suggested by the study would also have an enormous impact on the planet's climate as well. A considerable amount of “climate-altering” gases like hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide accompany most volcanic eruptions and would have spit out enough water to cover the red planet in a global ocean, the study says.  These findings paint a better picture of what habitability on Mars would look like, as well as the usefulness of gravity surveys.  “Future gravity surveys could help distinguish between ice, sediments and igneous rocks in the upper crust of the planet,” co-author and planetary scientist Kevin Lewis explained.   WATCH: NASA is attempting to fly a helicopter on Mars for the first time

Syrian, Iraqi forces say U.S. bombs military border positions, U.S. deniesBy Angus McDowall BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian state media said on Monday that U.S.-led coalition aircraft had bombed a Syrian army position near the Iraqi border, causing deaths and injuries, but the U.S. military denied it was responsible. The attack took place in al-Harra, southeast of the town of Albu Kamal, state news agency SANA said, citing a military source. A commander in the alliance fighting alongside Damascus told Reuters that drones that were "probably American" had bombed the positions of Iraqi factions between Albu Kamal and Tanf, as well as Syrian military positions.

  U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right now   Tue, 19 Jun 2018 11:45:48 -0400

U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right nowIn times of crisis, one would hope the U.S. Department of State would know how to respond accordingly. Sadly, not this time. On Tuesday, rather than showing any compassion for the nearly 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents at the border due to the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, the State Department decided to hold a fun Facebook Live. The almost 50-minute-long "Family Travel Hacks" Q&A encouraged people to ask about "applying for U.S. passports for kids, document requirements, and tips to make sure your vacation this summer goes smoothly." Though, predictably, many used the opportunity to share their upset at the fact that families are being separated at the border. SEE ALSO: 7 activist groups supporting families at the border that need your help right now Below, you can watch the full video, where two white representatives of the State Department — Carl and Kim, who work in Passport Services — happily talk about traveling families like it's no big deal.  Both Carl and Kim go on to joyously explain they're each parents who have had great experiences with obtaining passports for their children — something I'm sure can't be said by the parents of the distraught children who are currently being held in detention centers.  They even thought it wise to hold up their children's passport photos in admiration SEVERAL TIMES. Here are just some of the many comments from angry and appalled people watching the live stream, wondering how the U.S. State Department could be so upbeat and tone deaf at a time like this. Needless to say, people were NOT pleased with the timing of this Facebook Live.  If you too, are tired of the lack of action being taken to to help families at the border, check out our guide on how to help.

  Rising seas could flood 300,000 US homes and make coastal communities ‘unviable’   Mon, 18 Jun 2018 12:17:00 -0400

Rising seas could flood 300,000 US homes and make coastal communities ‘unviable’Hundreds of thousands of homes in the United States could face persistent flooding as climate change pushes sea levels higher, according to a new report. Sea level rise is expected to be one of the most tangible effects of a changing climate, as accumulating greenhouse gases fuel a steady rise in global temperatures that in turn raise the level of oceans - threatening low-lying and coastal areas. A new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists quantified the risk by comparing areas already known to be at high flood risk against data from the real estate website Zillow.

  United States withdraws from UN human rights council as criticism mounts over border policy   Wed, 20 Jun 2018 06:48:23 -0400

United States withdraws from UN human rights council as criticism mounts over border policyThe United States announced it was withdrawing from the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday, dismissing it as a "cesspool of political bias" for its anti-Israel stance. It marks the latest rejection of multilateral engagement by the Trump administration - following its exit from the Paris climate accords and the Iran nuclear deal - and comes a day after the UN's most senior human rights official condemned the US for separating children from parents at the border with Mexico. Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, and Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, issued the announcement, with Mrs Haley saying the Geneva-based organisation was "not worthy of its name". Mrs Haley described the council as a "protector of human rights abusers" and accused the body of "politicising and scapegoating countries with positive human rights records". She said the decision had not been taken lightly, and added: “We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organisation that makes a mockery of human rights.” Nikki Haley, pictured beside Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, announcing US withdrawal from the UN human rights council, on Tuesday in Washington DC Credit: AFP She said the US would have stayed if the changes they sought had been implemented, and said she did not rule out rejoining at a later date. Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, said the US decision was "regrettable". "We’ve made no secret of the fact that the UK wants to see reform of the human rights council, but we are committed to working to strengthen the council from within," he said. "Britain’s support for the human rights council remains steadfast. It is the best tool the international community has to address impunity in an imperfect world and to advance many of our international goals. "That’s why we will continue to support and champion it." Profile | Nikki Haley Mrs Haley announced last year that Washington was reviewing its membership of the 47-country body. The US is halfway through a three-year term and its departure marks the first time that a sitting member would volunteer to step aside. Libya was suspended in 2011 after a government crackdown on unarmed protesters.   Under President George W Bush the US refused to join the Geneva-based forum when it was created in 2006, but did so after President Barack Obama took office in 2009. Established to promote human rights worldwide the council has passed more than 70 resolutions critical of Israel, 10 times as often as it has criticised Iran. The US move came as Donald Trump achieved his highest job rating since the first week of his presidency. For the first time since January 2017 he recorded an approval figure of 45 per cent in a weekly Gallup poll. It meant Mr Trump's popularity was exactly the same as Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan at the same stage of their presidencies, while Barack Obama was at 46 per cent. The poll was conducted over the course of last week and reflected a strengthening economy, falling unemployment, and the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore. It was unclear how much the poll had been affected by a growing furore over a new "zero tolerance" policy of separating illegal immigrant parents from their children at the Mexican border. A separate Quinnipiac poll showed 66 per cent of Americans oppose the controversial policy, although 55 Per cent of Republicans support it. Donald Trump has faced fierce criticism for the so-called "zero-tolerance" policy that forcibly removes children from their parents Credit: AP Photo/Evan Vucci The policy means all illegal immigrants are now detained and prosecuted, and their children are removed and held in separate detention centres. The  UN human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein criticised the policy on Monday, calling it "unconscionable." Mrs Haley hit back on Tuesday, attacking the council for its own “hypocrisy”.  The council’s current membership includes 14 countries that are ranked as “not free” by Freedom House: Afghanistan, Angola, Burundi, China, Cuba, Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iraq, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. "Once again, the United Nations shows its hypocrisy by calling out the United States while it ignores the reprehensible human rights records of several members of its own human rights council," she said. In the past, illegal immigrant families were "caught and released" while they awaited proceedings. Over a six-week period more than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents, and photographs have emerged of minors being held in wire mesh cages. A secretly recorded tape also emerged of Central American children at a detention centre in Texas crying and pleading for their parents as a guard joked: "We have an orchestra here". Mr Trump on Tuesday said America was being "infested" by illegal immigrants and members of the MS-13 gang, and blamed Democrats for the crisis. He wrote on Twitter: "Democrats are the problem. They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our country, like MS-13. They can’t win on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters! We must always arrest people coming into our country illegally." People protest against the Trump administration policy of separating immigrant families Credit: REUTERS/Mike Blake Asked if Theresa May thought it was acceptable to cage children, the prime minster's spokesman said: "The welfare and safeguarding of children is at the heart of our immigration policy. We do not separate child refugees or asylum seekers from their families." Jeff Sessions, the US attorney general, dismissed comparisons to Nazi concentration camps. He told Fox News: "Well, it's a real exaggeration, of course. In Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country." There was condemnation from all four living US former first ladies, and a host of senior Republicans including Senator John McCain. Ted Cruz, the high profile conservative Republican senator from Texas, also said he was "horrified" and that "this has to stop". Mr Cruz said he was introducing a bill in Congress to allow illegal immigrant families to stay together in temporary shelters. Mr Trump was scheduled to meet with Republicans in Congress to discuss potential immigration bills on Tuesday night.   A view inside a Texas detention facility shows children sleeping under foil sheets Credit: Courtesy CBP/Handout via REUTERS At a meeting for small business owners on Tuesday, he said: "We want to solve this problem. I don't want children taken away from their parents. "When you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away." He said there were only two choices - "totally open borders or criminal prosecution". Mr Trump said he was asking Congress for a "third option". Democrats accused the president of using the separation of families as a "negotiating tool" as he sought to strong-arm them into supporting funding for a border wall. Meanwhile, more than $4.8 million was raised on Facebook to help separated families with legal services. It was the social network's largest ever fundraiser and those donating included chief executive Mark Zuckerberg.
