Grace Mugabe absent from S.Africa summit as assault claim lingers

Grace Mugabe absent from S.Africa summit as assault claim lingers Zimbabwe's first lady Grace Mugabe failed to appear Saturday at a summit in South Africa attended by her husband, an event overshadowed by her effort to obtain diplomatic immunity over assault allegations. The wife of President Robert Mugabe has not been seen since being accused of attacking a 20-year-old model with a electrical extension cord last weekend in a Johannesburg hotel where the couple's two sons were staying. The alleged assault is a political headache for South Africa and Zimbabwe, close neighbours with deep economic and historical ties.

Trump dumps controversial chief strategist Bannon in latest upheaval

Trump dumps controversial chief strategist Bannon in latest upheaval By Jeff Mason and Steve Holland WASHINGTON/HAGERSTOWN, Md. (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday fired his chief strategist Steve Bannon in the latest White House shake-up, removing a far-right architect of his 2016 election victory and a driving force behind his nationalist and anti-globalization agenda. Bannon's firing, a year and a day after Trump hired him as his campaign chief, put an abrupt end to the rabble-rousing political provocateur's tumultuous tenure in a White House riven with rivalries and back-stabbing during which he clashed with more-moderate factions. White House officials said Trump had told new Chief of Staff John Kelly to crack down on the bickering and infighting, and that Bannon's fate was sealed by comments published on Wednesday in the American Prospect liberal magazine in which he spoke of targeting his adversaries within the administration.

Erdogan tells Turks in Germany to vote against Merkel By Bulent Usta ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Friday said German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats were enemies of Turkey and called on Turks in Germany to vote against major parties in next month's elections. The comments, some of Erdogan's harshest yet against Merkel, drew a furious response from Merkel, her government and some Turkish organisations in Germany, illustrating the widening divide between the NATO allies and major trade partners. "I am calling on all my countrymen in Germany: the Christian Democrats, SDP, the Green Party are all enemies of Turkey.

Neo-Nazis love media attention. But ignoring them isn't an option | Bob Garfield

Neo-Nazis love media attention. But ignoring them isn't an option | Bob Garfield There is a genuine conflict of two public interests: the collateral damage of publicity versus the right to know. First there was the violence Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, where crowds of neo-Nazis, Klansmen, white nationalists and assorted alt-right mouthbreathers were televised chanting racist and antisemitic slogans and roughing up counter-protesters, culminating in the death of one woman. Yep, some of the finest neo-Nazis this great country has to offer.

Children in conflict zones vulnerable to killing, rape: UN draft

Children in conflict zones vulnerable to killing, rape: UN draft Children are particularly vulnerable in the conflicts raging around the globe, according to a draft UN report that specifically pointed the finger of blame in Yemen at the Saudi-led coalition. The draft of an annual UN report on the impact of armed conflict on children lists the countries and entities accused of recruiting child soldiers and using children as weapons of war. "I am highly concerned by the scale and severity of the grave violations that were committed against children in 2016, which included alarming levels of killing and maiming, recruitment and use and denial of humanitarian access," Secretary General Antonio Guterres says in the draft seen by AFP.


Forecasters put the total solar eclipse into a weather model and the result is amazing

Forecasters put the total solar eclipse into a weather model and the result is amazing The weather wizards at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have added the effects of the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse to one of their newest, highest-resolution computer models. The result is a gorgeously detailed view of how the eclipse will cause a decrease in incoming solar radiation as it crosses the country on Monday, from the Pacific Northwest to the Southeast.  Scientists at a NOAA laboratory in Boulder, Colorado added the eclipse's path to a computer model known as the "High-Resolution Rapid Refresh" or "HRRR" model. They released a simulation of the eclipse on Thursday, and starting  Saturday, the model will start incorporating the eclipse in its real-time forecasts.  SEE ALSO: How to watch the total solar eclipse from anywhere on Earth The eclipse algorithm was developed by a University of Barcelona team and shared by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. It calculates how much of the sun will be obscured by the moon at each point. The HRRR model breaks the country down into boxes with a width of just about 2 miles.  Image: noaa/esrlAs the incoming solar radiation changes with the eclipse, the model simulates how that will affect the weather. The eclipse can cause drops in temperature or even weakening thunderstorms temporarily, since they thrive in hot and humid conditions triggered by sunshine.  In a simulation using the weather on August 4, the researchers found that the eclipse will primarily affect temperatures by cooling a widespread area of the country by up to 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Such areas will experience a partial eclipse.  For the 70-mile-wide swath of the nation that will experience a total solar eclipse, the temperature impacts will be more significant, the model projects. Along the path of the full eclipse, the model shows that temperatures will drop between 5 and 12 degrees Fahrenheit.  WATCH: Here’s how many people in the U.S. will possibly see the eclipse

Furor erupts over killing of teenager as Philippines drugs war escalates

Furor erupts over killing of teenager as Philippines drugs war escalates By Erik De Castro and Manuel Mogato MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines police came under pressure on Friday to explain the killing of a high-school student after the 17-year-old became one of at least 80 people shot dead this week in an escalation of President Rodrigo Duterte's ruthless war on drugs. Television channels aired CCTV footage that showed Kian Loyd Delos Santos being carried by two men to the place where his body was later found, raising doubt about an official report that said he was shot because he fired at police officers first. Witnesses told the ABS-CBN channel that the teenager did not have a firearm and police officers at the scene handed him a gun, asked him to fire the weapon and run.


Hero police officer shot dead four terrorists in Cambrils and saved injured partner's life

Hero police officer shot dead four terrorists in Cambrils and saved injured partner's life An outnumbered police officer shot dead four of the five terrorists who attacked the seaside city of Cambrils last night, saving his injured partner’s life, according to a dramatic account of the shootout. The officers were carrying out a routine check at a roundabout near the seafront of Cambrils when the terrorists launched their attack, which, it was confirmed today, killed one woman. Their white Audi A3, coming from the direction of the city, ploughed through four pedestrians before smashing into the police car and overturning. The crash left one officer with a broken tibia and an injured head. According to a report in the La Vanguardia newspaper, the five men got out of the overturned vehicle, armed with knives and axes, and wearing false explosives.  The overturned car used in the attack in Cambrils Credit: LLUIS GENE/AFP The hero police office shot down four of the terrorists and the fifth fled in the direction of a nearby park, stabbing a pedestrian in the face with a knife. He was gunned down by a separate police officer. The chief of Mossa, the Catalan police force, confirmed that one officer had killed the four terrrorists.  Josep Luis Trapero told reporters at a press conference: "To kill four people, even if you are a professional, is not easy to digest." Video footage has emerged of one of the terrorists taunting police before being shot down.

For Israel, White House ties trump neo-Nazi condemnation

For Israel, White House ties trump neo-Nazi condemnation An Israeli cabinet minister has said relations with US President Donald Trump take priority over condemning neo-Nazis, to justify Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's muted response to events in Charlottesville. Critics have accused Netanyahu of being slow to condemn extremism and anti-Semitism at US far-right protests, having only done so in a single tweet - three days after the rally in the Virginia town that ended in bloodshed. Ayoub Kara, the communications minister and a vocal Netanyahu supporter, said in remarks published Friday in the Jerusalem Post that backing Trump was a strategic must for Israel's right-wing government.


Assad advisor says Syria war nearing its end

Assad advisor says Syria war nearing its end An advisor to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said the six-year war is nearly over as foreign states cut backing for rebels, and vowed the government would confront any "illegitimate" forces, whether Turkish or American. Bouthaina Shaaban said the fact that Syria was staging the Damascus International Fair for the first time in the war "sends a message that the war has ended ... and we are at the start of the path towards reconstruction." With the help of Russian air power and Iran-backed militias, Damascus has shored up its rule over much of the country's populated west. The war, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people, has reached its "penultimate stage" as foreign powers that backed rebels change their policies, Shaaban said in comments to Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV carried on Syrian state news agency SANA on Thursday.


Neo-Nazis are taking genetic tests and are deeply upset by the results

Neo-Nazis are taking genetic tests and are deeply upset by the results White supremacists in the US are taking genetic tests to prove their racial identity but are being left bitterly disappointed to learn their genes are not as pure as they presumed. A new study from the University of California examined years’ worth of posts on Stormfront, a neo-Nazi forum which is the internet’s first major racial hate site, to decipher how members responded to their spit-in-a-cup genetic test results. White nationalists were up in arms to discover they were not 100 per cent white European and instead had African, Jewish or Asian genes.

Second vehicle attack: five terror suspects 'wearing suicide vests' shot dead in Cambrils

Second vehicle attack: five terror suspects 'wearing suicide vests' shot dead in Cambrils Residents of the Spanish seaside resort of Cambrils fled in terror in the early hours of Friday after five terrorists wearing suicide vests launched the second ramming attack in the country in a matter of hours.  At least six people were hurt when the attackers drove into pedestrians before being shot dead by security forces, just hours after a similar attack in nearby Barcelona. The Audi A3 car rammed into people on the seaside promenade of the tourist city 74 miles south of Barcelona, where a van had earlier sped into a street packed full of tourists, killing 13 people and injuring around 100 others. Police said the suspects in Cambrils carried bomb belts, which were detonated by a police bomb squad. Barcelona terror attack, in pictures Media reports said a car crashed into a police vehicle and nearby civilians and police shot the attackers, one brandishing a knife. Police did not immediately say how the attack was being carried out. A police officer and five civilians were injured and two were in serious condition. Police were working on the theory that the Cambrils and Barcelona attacks were  connected, as well as a Wednesday night explosion in the town of Alcanar in which one person was killed.. "The alleged terrorists were in an Audi A3 and apparently knocked down several people before coming across a police patrol and a shoot-out ensued," said a spokesman for the regional government of Catalonia, where Cambrils is located in Spain's northeast. Spanish Policemen inspect a street in Cambrils  Credit: EPA Markel Artabe, a 20-year-old restaurant worker, said he was on the seaside promenade when he heard what he initially thought were fireworks, but soon realised were gunshots. He said he saw someone lying on the ground "with a gunshot in the head". The victim's friends were crying out "help", he added. Joan Marc Serra Salinas, a 21-year-old waiter, said he heard many gunshots. "And shouting. And more shouting. I jumped onto the beach and didn't move," he said. Police said they were "working on the hypothesis that the terrorists shot dead in Cambrils could be linked to what happened in Barcelona". How the Barcelona terror attack unfolded 01:10 The attack in Cambrils happened as security forces hunted for the driver of the van used in the Barcelona rampage, who was seen escaping on foot.  Police announced the arrest of two suspects over the Barcelona attack, identified as a Spaniard and a Moroccan, but said the driver was still on the run. "We're united in grief," Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said in a televised address after rushing to Barcelona. "Above all we're united in the firm intention to defeat those who want to take our values and way of life from us."

Stunning new view of Jupiter flips Great Red Spot on its side

Stunning new view of Jupiter flips Great Red Spot on its side A new view of Jupiter takes the usual shot of the planet's Great Red Spot and flips it on its side. The captivating new perspective comes from an image created by two citizen scientists who used data from the JunoCam on NASA's Juno spacecraft that's been in orbit for more than a year studying the planet, according to NASA. The north end of the planet is shown on the left side of the new photo (above) and that's where the Great Red Spot rages. SEE ALSO: Perhaps staring at this photo of a storm on Jupiter will help us all relax after a hard week The image comes from the recent batch of photos and data from the Juno spacecraft's fly-by on July 10. The Great Red Spot, a 10,000 mile-wide storm, had quite a photo session when the spacecraft flew 5,600 miles above it. For this newer image, created by Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran, the spacecraft was 10,274 miles above the planet and its clouds. The Great Red Spot is usually photographed on top, like this photo below, so the storm gets a different vantage point in this latest image.
