Mercury mission to explore origin of Solar System

Mercury mission to explore origin of Solar System Is Mercury's core liquid or solid, and why -- on the smallest planet in our solar system -- is it so big? What can the planet closest to the Sun tell us about how our solar system came into being? An unmanned European-Japanese space mission, dubbed BepiColombo, blasted off early Saturday morning from French Guiana, to probe these and other mysteries.

Afghanistan elections delayed in Kandahar as nation braces for  polling day violence

Afghanistan elections delayed in Kandahar as nation braces for  polling day violence Voting for parliamentary elections in Afghanistan's second city has been postponed after a key security official was assassinated and the country braced for widespread insurgent violence on polling day. Taliban commanders on Friday tried to further disrupt the election by issuing a nationwide demand for people to remain at home rather than head to the polls. The vote is seen as a test of president Ashraf Ghani's grip on the country after a grim year of soaring casualties among his forces and civilians and further encroachment by a buoyant Taliban. Dr Ghani's weary international backers, particularly Donald Trump, are desperate for signs of stability and progress after 17-years of pouring troops and money into the country. Yet preparations were dealt a severe blow on Thursday when Kandahar's powerful police chief, Gen Abdul Raziq, was shot dead in an insider attack claimed by the Taliban. Election workers prepare for the country's third parliamentary poll since the Taliban were ousted Credit: Reuters Gen Raziq had been a bastion against Taliban encroachment in the region with a ruthless campaign against the insurgents which had largely stabilised Kandahar and made him the most powerful government figure in southern Afghanistan. The attack at a meeting with US commander, Gen Scott Miller, killed the local intelligence chief and critically wounded the provincial governor, wiping out the local leadership at a stroke. Kandahar, once considered the stronghold of the Taliban movement, was on edge the day after the attack, as funerals were held and officials decided to postpone voting for a week. The Taliban have vowed to disrupt an election they declare a sham and its military council issued a statement warning voters that “participation in this process is aiding the invaders”. It ordered Afghans to “remain indoors and desist from bringing out any means of transport”. A bloody or badly flawed election is predicted to strengthen the Taliban's hand in fledgling talks to find a political settlement to the conflict. More than nine million Afghans are registered to vote in what is only the third parliamentary poll since the Taliban were ousted after the 9/11 attacks. Around 2,500 candidates are standing for 249 seats in a parliament which has in the past decade gained a reputation for graft and greed. This year's polls have already been delayed since 2015 because of rifts within Dr Ghani's government and rows how to clean up the voting system. The vote sees a new generation of election hopefuls, many younger and better educated than previous candidates, take on an old guard frequently tainted with accusations of corruption or involvement in the bloodshed of the 1990s civil war. But the new generation also contains a raft of candidates whose fathers were formerly some of the country's most prominent Mujahideen warlords of the 1990s, and who have been towering figures of Afghan life for decades. This year's voting lists include children of notorious leaders including Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, the Uzbek strongman Gen Abdul Rashid Dostum, and the Herat powerbroker Ismail Khan. Jamaluddin Hekmatyar, whose father is remembered for indiscriminately bombarding Kabul as he squabbled with his former comrades in the 1990s, is standing as a member of his father's Hezb-e Islami party. The 42-year-old told the Telegraph he had not gained his candidacy through nepotism and wanted to “represent the people and fight for their rights”. “I have learned from my father to fight for our values, each nation has the right to be independent and we must fight for a good future, no matter how long that fight would be but we should resist.” He said it was not for him to answer for the deeds of the Mujahideen commanders. “I think it’s not a good analysis if we say only Mujahideen leaders committed mistakes here, we should note foreigners role in Afghanistan too.” The possible rise of children whose fathers presided over the destruction of the 1990s is eyed warily by many Afghans. “There will be no deference between the Mujahideen leaders and their children,” said one Herat resident who lost two uncles during the barbarity of the 1990s, “they are just a shadow of their dads”. “Mujahideen leaders want to rule their policies through their children. They are all educated in the West by the money that their dads received by selling the blood of innocent Afghans.”


'At least 50' dead as train ploughs through festival crowd in India

'At least 50' dead as train ploughs through festival crowd in India At least 50 people were killed on Friday after a train ploughed into revellers celebrating a Hindu festival in northern India, police said, the latest major accident on the country's crumbling rail network. A crowd had gathered on railway tracks in the city of Amritsar in Punjab state to watch a fireworks show marking the Dussehra festival when the train barrelled down the line at speed. "There are more than 50 dead. The priority now is to take the injured to the hospital," Amritsar city police commissioner SS Srivastava told reporters. More than 60 people who were injured were being given emergency treatment at various hospitals across the city, he added. An AFP photographer at the scene said some victims had lost limbs in the accident while others suffered head wounds. A crowd gathers at the site of the train accident Credit: Prabhjot Gill/AP "There was a lot of noise as firecrackers were being let off and it appears they (victims) were unable to hear the approaching train," a police official told AFP on condition of anonymity. An eyewitness told a local TV channel there was "utter commotion" when the crowds noticed the train "coming very fast" towards them. "Everyone was running helter-skelter and suddenly the train crashed into the crowds of people," he said. Indian relatives and revellers gather around the bodies of the victims of a train accident during the Hindu festival of Dussehra in Amritsar  Credit: NARINDER NANU/AFP Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh ordered an investigation into the deadly accident and announced a monetary compensation of 500,000 rupees ($6800) each to the family of the victims. "We have reports that some 50-60 people have died. We have asked all hospitals to remain open through the night so that the injured can be treated," Singh told reporters. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was extremely saddened by the "heart-wrenching tragedy" and asked officials to provide immediate assistance to the injured. Some relatives of the deceased blamed the authorities for allowing a "big function" to be held next to the railway track. An eyewitness said people were taking pictures on their mobile phones and "they were not given any warning that they should not stand on the tracks." India's railway network is the world's fourth largest and remains the main form of travel in the vast country, but it is poorly funded and deadly accidents often occur. The country is home to hundreds of railway crossings that are unmanned and particularly accident prone, with people often ignoring oncoming train warnings.

Europe, U.S. Escalate Trade War With New Disputes at the WTO

Europe, U.S. Escalate Trade War With New Disputes at the WTO In a separate filing, the U.S. asked the WTO to review those nations that retaliated against its duties. The move sets the stage for a showdown at the Geneva-based trade arbiter that some fear could either lead to a U.S. exit or a flood of new protectionist measures invoking what has until now been a rarely used national security loophole in global trade rules. The U.S. has said the tariffs on imported steel and aluminum imposed earlier this year are allowed under the WTO’s national security exemption, which permits governments to take “any action which it considers necessary for the protection of its essential security interests.” This has drawn the ire of those affected, many of which are close American allies, such as the European Union and Canada.

Enterprising Girl Guide sells cookies to Canadians waiting in line at cannabis store

Enterprising Girl Guide sells cookies to Canadians waiting in line at cannabis store Canada's recent marijuana legalization is set to bring a wave of economic benefits. While the country's government is set to benefit from taxes, and the cannabis industry is sure to grow, the policy has already done wonders for a Girl Guide in Edmonton. SEE ALSO: A cheerleader attempted to swap pot brownies for homecoming votes Elina Childs, 9, sold C$120 worth of sandwich cookies and mint thins to a line of people waiting to buy legal marijuana at Nova Cannabis on Wednesday, as reported by CBC.  It took her less than 45 minutes to sell all 30 boxes, compared to how slow it was selling cookies to people in her neighborhood. "It amazed me how quickly they went," her dad Seann Childs told the broadcaster. "Even people in cars driving on the avenue there would stop and roll down their window and ask for cookies."  God bless this girl selling girl guide cookies outside of nova cannabis. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼#yeg pic.twitter.com/dnI9HdBXPc — Emily Fitzpatrick (@_emilyfitzCBC) October 17, 2018 Edmonton Girl Guide sells out of cookies outside cannabis store https://t.co/QmTDd3h3Yb pic.twitter.com/NDTBQ3NbFF — CBC Edmonton (@CBCEdmonton) October 18, 2018 While a clever business scheme, it was also an opportunity for dad to teach Elina, who has cystic fibrosis, about cannabis and its recent legalization. The Girl Guides were also cool with it. "Good on her and her family for thinking of it," Edmonton commissioner Heather Monahan told the Canadian Press. "It’s fun and it’s different and what better way to get rid of cookies." In February, a girl scout in San Diego did the same thing outside a dispensary, managing to sell 300 boxes in six hours. Smart cookies, both of them. WATCH: This 11-year-old genius is also an award-winning DJ — Mashable Originals

Liam Fox and US treasury secretary pull out of 'Davos in the Desert' summit in Saudi Arabia over Jamal Khashoggi allegations

Liam Fox and US treasury secretary pull out of 'Davos in the Desert' summit in Saudi Arabia over Jamal Khashoggi allegations Saudi Arabia’s plans for its “Davos in the Desert” summit were in tatters on Thursday after Liam Fox, the international trade secretary, and Steve Mnuchin, the US treasury secretary, both pulled out amid allegations the kingdom murdered Jamal Khashoggi, the missing journalist.  Dr Fox and Mr Mnuchin were among the last Western officials still potentially going to next week’s summit but both announced on Thursday they would not attend. Hours earlier, the Dutch and French finance ministers also pulled out.  The summit, known formally as the Future Investment Initiative, was the brainchild of Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince now at the centre of an international storm after allegations he ordered Mr Khashoggi’s murder.  Leading business figures and media groups are also boycotting the summit along with Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).  The UK and US pulled out of the summit as Donald Trump acknowledged it "certainly looks" as though Mr Khashoggi is dead, and he threatened "very severe" consequences if the Saudis were found to have murdered him. Asked if the journalist was dead, he said: "It certainly looks that way. ... Very sad." He did not say on what he based his latest statement about the writer's likely demise. New images showed Maher Mutreb, a Saudi intelligence officer, outside the consulate several hours before Mr Khashoggi arrived Credit: (Sabah via AP) Asked what consequence Saudi leaders would face if they are found to be responsible, he replied: "It will have to be very severe. It's bad, bad stuff. But we'll see what happens." Turkish police were searching a forest on the outskirts of Istanbul and a city near the Sea of Marmara for the remains of Khashoggi, two senior Turkish officials told Reuters. Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, said Saudi Arabia should be given “a few more days” to provide an explanation for what happened to Mr Khashoggi, who disappeared October 2.  Mr Pompeo raised doubt about the strength of any US response by saying the Trump administration has not yet decided “how or if” to act and stressing America’s deep ties with Saudi Arabia. “They are an important strategic alliance to the United States,” he said. He refused to say if he knew whether Mr Khashoggi was alive or dead.  Turkish officials say a team of 15 Saudi operatives murdered Mr Khashoggi and dismembered his body inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.  They claim to have graphic audio tape, which captures one Saudi operative urging others to listen to music as they carved up Mr Khashoggi’s body with a bone saw. One Turkish report said the Saudis cut off Mr Khashoggi’s fingers before beheading him. Turkey has not shared the audio tape with the US but American officials have requested it, Donald Trump said.  Saudi Arabia has vehemently denied responsibility although some reports indicate the Saudi royal family is preparing to blame intelligence officials for the killing in an effort to protect Crown Prince Mohammed. Any effort to claim the crown prince was unaware of the Saudi operation grew more complicated Thursday after Turkish media published CCTV footage showing that a member of his entourage was at the consulate the morning Mr Khashoggi vanished.  Mike Pompeo spent two days in Saudi Arabia and Turkey Credit: LEAH MILLIS/AFP/Getty Images The footage showed Maher Mutreb, a Saudi intelligence officer who once worked at the Saudi embassy in London, arriving at the consulate several hours before Mr Khashoggi. Mr Mutreb has been photographed with the crown prince on several recent international visits.  A spokesman for Dr Fox said the cabinet minister had decided “the time is not right for him to attend” the Riyadh summit. “The UK remains very concerned about Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance. “We encourage Turkish-Saudi collaboration and look forward to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia conducting a thorough, credible, transparent, and prompt investigation, as announced. Those bearing responsibility for his disappearance must be held to account,” the spokesman said.  Mr Mnuchin said he decided not to attend after meeting with Mr Trump and Mr Pompeo at the White House. “I will not be participating in the Future Investment Initiative summit in Saudi Arabia,” he said on Twitter.  Bob Corker, a Republican senator who chairs of the foreign relations committee, said the White House had “clamped down” and was not sharing intelligence about the fate of Mr Khashoggi.  “I can only surmise that probably the intel is not painting a pretty picture as it relates to Saudi Arabia,” Mr Corker said. The Washington Post also published Mr Khashoggi’s final column, where he wrote that “Arab governments have been given free rein to continue silencing the media at an increasing rate," in a piece that apparently foreshadowed his own fate. In a note published with the column, Karen Attiah, global opinions editor at The Washington Post, said the piece captured Mr Khashoggi’s commitment to freedom in the Arab world: "A freedom he apparently gave his life for." She said she received it from his assistant a day after he disappeared.  “The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together,” she wrote. “Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen. This is the last piece of his I will edit for The Post.”
