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
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. If clusters of galaxies merge, a huge shock wave can drive the birth of a new generation of stars -- the sleeping galaxies get a new lease of life. The sc
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.
We now have Congress readying itself to give up its authority to debate and amendment trade agreements by simply raising their hand (most likely with their faces covered in order to keep anonymity) without out any other input.
Франция намерена компенсировать России затраты после отмены контракта на поставку вертолётоносцев «Мистраль», сообщает французская газета Le Journal du Dimanche со ссылкой на источник, знакомый с ходом переговоров.
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».
Dozens of protestors gathered outside the European Commission’s office in London on Saturday to condemn the EU’s policies towards non-European migrants, which are blamed for the deaths of hundreds of people in a shipwreck in the Mediterranean last week.
Four former Guantanamo Bay prisoners protested on Friday night in front of the US Embassy in Montevideo, Uruguay, complaining over “broken promises” and demanding greater financial support from Washington.
A young Australian doctor has appeared in an Islamic State propaganda video calling on medical "brothers and sisters" from around the world to come to Syria to join the "Jihad for Islam" against the West.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
I guess the eqipment and medecine he speaks for is what the Syrian state provided before the IS psychos took it for themselves...
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.
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. Nature, through all her kingdoms, insures herself. Nobody car
Специалисты американского аэрокосмического агентства NASA собираются использовать два телескопа для новой научной миссии в космосе. Её цель — изучение так называемой тёмной материи. «Увидеть» тёмную материю, которую не мог обнаружить ни один прибор, астрономам удалось совсем недавно. Ранее данные об этой загадке Вселенной специалисты получали только с помощью вычислений. Как сообщил один из участников проекта NASA, спутники, с помощью которых предполагается изучать тёмную материю, были переданы
