A largely peaceful protest over the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a spinal cord injury in police custody, gave way to scattered scenes of chaos here on Saturday night, as demonstrators smashed a downtown storefront window and damaged police cruisers, while officers broke up skirmishes and made arrests near Camden Yards. The trouble began when a group of protesters, as many as 100 by some accounts, split from the main group near the end of the protest and went on a r

OpEdNews Quicklink: Giant cosmic tsunami wakes up comatose galaxies

Galaxies are often found in clusters, which contain many 'red and dead' members that stopped forming stars in the distant past. Now an international team of astronomers, led by Andra Stroe of Leiden Observatory and David Sobral of Leiden and the University of Lisbon, have discovered that these comatose galaxies can sometimes come back to life.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Give Peace A Chance | Global politics | Scoop.it
America thinks it can bluster and bluff and use color revolutions to nudge Putin out of office and install some bloated puppet in his place like they did with Poroshenko in Ukraine. Russia is not Zimbabwe, Iraq, or Yemen. It's not Grenada or Haiti. Russia is not going to be intimidated by a schoolyard bully. America's aggression and infantile games can only end badly. Time for it to reverse course and cut its losses.

СМИ: Прибалтийские «агенты США» мечтают уничтожить Россию | Global politics | Scoop.it
Лидеры Эстонии, Латвии и Литвы стремятся разжечь войну с Россией, призывая НАТО защитить их от воображаемой российской угрозы, считает обозреватель издания Boulevard Voltaire. По словам журналиста, в этом нет ничего удивительного, поскольку жители стран Балтии долгое время жили на «территории англосаксонской империи» и, став «американскими агентами», жаждут «угодить своему хозяину».

It will be absolutely fascinating to watch how China and Pakistan, simultaneously, may be able to keep the peace in both Xinjiang and Balochistan to assure booming trade along the corridor. Shanghai is twice more distant from Urumqi than Karachi. So no wonder Beijing thinks of Pakistan as a sort of Hong Kong West.

OpEdNews Quicklink: Galactic spores released into cosmos | Global politics | Scoop.it
Like stars that can be ejected from galaxies, astronomers have discovered 11 entire galaxies that underwent some unpleasant gravitational turbulence and were flung from their home clusters, marooned in intercluster space. "These galaxies are facing a lonely future, exiled from the galaxy clusters they used to live in." // Genius is the activity which repairs the decays of things, whether wholly or partly of a material and finite kind.
