The debris from deep space is a significant problem for the experts worrieded about the defense of Earth from extraterrestrial risks. Think about this debris as a ring, like Saturn’s rings, made of not working satellites as well as various other such continues to bes, which surrounds the world Earth and not only that, yet provides a worrying risk to our earth. Essentially, Earth has actually got its very own Saturn’s rings, however constructed from hazardous scrap, after the mankind has actually bravely continued in its worthy as well as soon to be needed quest of controling deep space.
Being a concern whose relevance is of worldwide level, removing the space debris has actually been come close to recently by a worldwide team of researchers. The Japanese Riken research institute in one of the major leaders of the research. The scientists that are included in this research have actually declared to have actually located a method to eliminate the room debris, a way that is regarded by most analysts in the area as one of the most ambitious plan that has actually ever before been clarified about this issue. And also it is also a really awesome method of dealing with such factors, as well as some non-analysts claim that it advises them of the Star Wars movies. Others just really hope that the International Space Station will certainly not pass on night right into the Death Star.
To fix this problem International team of scientists are creating a system that could fire those little bits down with the laser.
It’s the age-old debate: Which phone is better, the iPhone or the Android?
But in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this morning, a phone debate led two intoxicated roommates to batter each other with broken beer bottles, police said.
Jiro Mendez said the incident started when he and his roommate, Elias Ecevo, were in their apartment’s parking lot arguing over which smartphone was better, according to the Tulsa Police Department. The fight escalated when Ecevo hit Mendez in the head with a bottle before stealing his car, police said.
Police said Mendez’s car was found parked a “short distance away” in their apartment complex.
“In over 35 years as a cop, this is one of the oddest reasons I’ve seen for assault,” Maj. Rod Hummel of the Tulsa police told ABC News.
Staff attorneys at the Justice Department’s antitrust division are nearing a recommendation to block Comcast Corp.’s bid to buy Time Warner Cable Inc., according to people familiar with the matter.
Attorneys who are investigating Comcast’s $45.2 billion proposal to create a nationwide cable giant are leaning against the merger out of concerns that consumers would be harmed and could submit their review as soon as next week, said the people.
The antitrust lawyers will present their findings to Renata Hesse, a deputy assistant attorney general for antitrust, who will decide, along with the division’s top officials, whether to file a federal lawsuit to block the deal, they said.
The Justice Department lawyers have been contacting outside parties in the last few weeks to shore up evidence to support a potential case against the merger, one of the people said.
Residents of a Mexican border town were told by police to stay off main roads after gunfights and burning vehicles blocked streets. A drug gang leader, ‘El Gafe’ had earlier been arrested.
A spokesman for the Mexican town of Reynosa on the US border said ‘El Gafe’ (The Jinxed One) the leader of the Gulf Cartel had been arrested on Friday and taken to the capital, Mexico City.
The city ground to a halt on Friday afternoon after vehicles were set on fire and shooting began.
Two by-standers may have been killed in the fighting, according to the police.
Reynosa has been the site of turf wars between two rival drug gangs - the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas - over the last year. They have been fighting for control of the border smuggling routes into the United States, and crime rackets.
President Obama on Friday said it was “crazy” and “embarrassing” the way the GOP-led Senate has held up confirmation of his attorney general nominee, Loretta Lynch.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was “hopeful” that the obstacle would be addressed next week, clearing the way for her confirmation vote. But an aide to Minority Leader Harry Reid said no deal was in hand.
“What are we doing here?” Obama said. “There are times when the dysfunction in the Senate just goes too far. This is an example of it. It’s gone too far. Enough. Enough. Call Loretta Lynch for a vote. Get her confirmed.
Lynch, U.S. attorney for New York’s Eastern District, would succeed Attorney General Eric H. Holder if confirmed.
Every day of every year, NASA satellites provide useful data about our home planet, and along the way, some beautiful images as well. This video includes satellite images of Earth in 2014 from NASA and its partners as well as photos and a time lapse video from the International Space Station. We’ve also included a range of data visualizations, model runs, and a conceptual animation that were produced in 2014 (but in some cases might have been utilizing data from earlier years.)

And it deserves to be amplified. This willingness to take it, to lead a revolution - and revelation, beginning in Beijing in 1995, when she first raised her voice to say the words you’ve heard many times throughout this conference: “Women’s Rights Are Human Rights.”
When Hillary Clinton stood up in Beijing to speak that truth, her hosts were not the only ones who didn’t necessarily want to hear it. Some of her husband’s advisors also were nervous about the speech, fearful of upsetting relations with China. But she faced down the opposition at home and abroad, and her words continue to hearten women around the world and have reverberated down the decades.
As Warren Buffett famously observed, “…while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks.” He was referring to the fact that capital gains earned by wealthy investors are taxed at a much lower rate than wages earned by workers. And while commissions paid to shoe salesmen and bonuses paid to bankers are taxed as ordinary income, the performance pay earned by private equity firm partners for managing an investment fund — so-called carried interest — is also taxed at the lower capital gains rate. This may be outrageous, but at least it’s legal.
The same cannot be said for the tax dodge used by private equity firm partners to convert the ordinary income they receive from their fixed management fees into additional capital gains. The partners at Bain Capital famously waived over $1 billion of management fees over a 10-year period, saving these partners, at a single firm, over $250 million of taxes on what was, essentially, their salary income.
When describing Republican tax proposals, it’s not uncommon to talk about policies that disproportionately benefit the very wealthy. GOP proponents will say a bill benefits all taxpayers, but they’ll brush past the fact that the rich benefit most. This, however, is altogether different - today’s bill, called the “Death Tax Repeal Act,” quite literally benefits multi-millionaires and billionaires exclusively.
It’s not an exaggeration to say House Republicans, en masse, voted for a $269 billion giveaway to the top 0.2%. Under the plan, GOP lawmakers, who occasionally pretend to care about “fiscal responsibility,” would simply add the entire $269 billion cost to the deficit, leaving future generations to pay for a massive tax break for the hyper-wealthy.
Wait, it gets worse.
The US Senate voted 92-8 to pass HR 2, which has been known as the “doc fix” for Medicaid reimbursement rates, as well as many other health care provisions. HR 2 includes an alarmingly high increase in funding for the AOUM program, bringing its annual funding to $75 million. President Obama has already agreed to sign the bill, saying in a statement that he “would be proud to sign it into law.”
This compromise bill, however, also includes a two-year extension of Title V abstinence-only education, allocating significant federal funding to Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs). Many CPCs lie to women about abortion and birth control and target women who are facing unplanned pregnancies and provide them with medical misinformation. AOUM curriculums rely heavily on shame and stigma, and have been proven to be unsuccessful at preventing unplanned pregnancy and the spread of STIs.
The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) wrote of the expansion of AOUM, stating that SIECUS is “incredibly disappointed by this wasteful increase and expansion of AOUM programs that are ineffective, stigmatizing, and fail to provide young people with the sexual health information, education, and skills they need throughout their life to make healthy and responsible decisions.”
