رده‌بندی جهانی آزادی مطبوعات ۲۰۱۷: ایران رتبه ۱۶۵
ارش‌گران بدون مرز (RSF)، ویرایش سال ۲۰۱۷ «رده‌بندی جهانی آزادی مطبوعات» را منتشر کرده است. ایران در رتبه ۱۶۵ این جدول قرار دارد. بر اساس رده‌بندی جهانی آزادی مطبوعات ۲۰۱۷، تازش بر رسانه‌ها در سراسر جهان به صورت هنجار درآمده؛ موضوعی که نشان‌گر خطر کژروی در عرصه آزادی رسانه‌ها در جهان و در دموکراسی‌های بزرگ است. بر اساس این گزارش، شاخص سالانه‌ که معیاری برای سنجش شدت نقض آزادی اطلاع‌رسانی در جهان است، امسال به ۳۸۷۲ رسیده است و از سال ۲۰۰۷ به این سو هیچ‌گاه تا این حد یعنی ۱۴ درصد افزایش نداشته است. امسال در نزدیک به دو سوم کشورها، ناگوارتر شدن وضعیت آزادی اطلاع‌رسانی ثبت شده است، درحالی که کشورهایی که وضعیت آزادی اطلاع‌رسانی در آن‌ها «خوب» یا «کمابیش خوب» انگاشته می‌شدند، ۳، ۲ درصد کاهش داشته‌اند. نروژ نخستین کشور فهرست و کره شمالی آخرین فنلاند که شش سال پی در پی مقام‌ نخست آزادی مطبوعات را داشت، سقوط کرده و و نروژ به جای او نشسته است. در جایگاه دوم فهرست رده‌بندی، سوئد قرار دارد که شش رده بالا آمده است. به مدت ۱۲ سال، سه کشور، در رده های آخر قرار داشته‌اند: کره شمالی، ترکمنستان و اریتره. اریتره با رتبه ۱۷۹، سال گذشته به برخی گروه‌های رسانه‌ای خارجی اجازه ورود به کشور را داد و به همین دلیل برای نخستین بار از سال ۲۰۰۷، رده آخر به کره شمالی رسید. بر اساس این جدول، ترکمنستان رتبه ۱۷۸ را دارد و سوریه ۱۷۷. آفریقای شمالی و خاورمیانه‌ همچنان دشوارترین و خطرناک‌ترین مناطق برای روزنامه‌نگاران در انجام وظایف حرفه‌ای‌شان است.

سلب امکان مطالعه و نوشتن از آیت الله نکونام، زندانی بیمار در زندان ساحلی قم
آیت الله محمدرضا نکونام روحانی منتقد که از بیماری های متعدد رنج می برد کماکان در بند ویژه روحانیت زندان ساحلی قم تحمل حبس می‌کند. در اسفندماه سال گذشته پزشکی قانونی برای سومین بار رای به عدم توان تحمل حبس توسط آقای نکونام داده بود، اما هم‌چنان از آزادی او ممانعت بعمل می آید. گزارش شده است وضعیت جسمانی این زندانی در طی روزهای اخیر رو به «وخامت» نهاده است. در کنار مشکل سالخوردگی و بیماریهای متعدد، در روزهای اخیر مسئولین زندان با توقیف سلیقه ای کتابهای نامبرده در زندان و همچنین گرفتن لوازم نوشتاری وی امکان مطالعه و نوشتن را از این روحانی منتقد سلب کردند. به گزارش خبرگزاری هرانا، ارگان خبری مجموعه فعالان حقوق بشر در ایران، یک منبع نزدیک به آیت الله نکونام درباره آخرین وضعیت جسمی وی گفت: “حال عمومی آیت الله نکونام از عصر روز شنبه، دوم اردیبهشت ماه، در زندان ساحلی شهر قم رو به وخامت گذارده است.” این منبع مطلع در ادامه به گزارشگر هرانا تاکید کرد: “دادگاه ویژه روحانیت، از اعزام این روحانی معترض و بیمار به بهداری زندان، ممانعت بعمل آورده است! فشار خون، قند، و نارسایی در عملکرد هر دو کلیه و چشم های ایشان، به شدت باعث آزار و اذیت وی گردیده؛ طوری که ایشان به سختی قادر است، کارهای روزانه خود را انجام دهند.”

واکنش دیوانه‌وار سفارت آخوندها در آلبانی به‌دنبال دیدار سناتور مک کین با رئیس‌جمهور برگزیده مقاومت
درماندگی و وحشت فاشیسم دینی از انتقال پیروزمند مجاهدین و استقبال داخلی و بین‌المللی اطلاعیه 30فروردین غلامحسین محمدنیا مأمور اعزامی وزارت اطلاعات در آلبانی که تحت عنوان «سفیر» به جاسوسی و تو‌طئه علیه مجاهدین در این کشور اشتغال دارد، واکنش دیوانه‌وار رژیم پلید آخوندی به‌دنبال دیدار سناتور مک‌کین با رئیس‌جمهور برگزیده مقاومت و بازتاب درماندگی و وحشت فاشیسم دینی از انتقال پیروزمند مجاهدین و استقبال داخلی و بین‌المللی از این امر است. این‌که رژیم آخوندی مجاهدین را کماکان تروریست و سکت وابسته به غرب و شرق بخواند، صرفاً مزید بر افتخار و حاکی از اهتزاز پرچم اشرف‌نشان مقاومت و تکثیر آن در داخل و خارج ایران است. عهد چرندیات فاشیسم دینی و همگنان و مزدوران مربوطه علیه مجاهدین که در اشرف و لیبرتی جاده‌ صاف کن حملات موشکی و تروریستی بود، سپری شده و دیگر به مفت نمی‌ارزد. سفیر رژیم آخوندی، که یک عضو وزارت اطلاعات، مافیای ترور و شکنجه آخوندهاست، با تکرار چرندیات همیشگی علیه سازمان مجاهدین خلق ایران بیهوده تلاش می‌کند رابطه مجاهدین با مردم و نهادهای آلبانی را مخدوش کند. از سه دهه پیش وقتی رژیم آخوندی نتوانست با قتل‌عام و ترور، سازمان مجاهدین خلق ایران را نابود کند، با کارزار شیطان‌سازی و ترویج دروغ درصدد بی‌اعتبار کردن آن بر آمد. این تبلیغات مسخره برای مردم آلبانی که 4سال است سازمان مجاهدین خلق ایران را از نزدیک تجربه کرده‌اند کمترین ارزشی ندارد و فقط بر نفرت آنها از رژیم پلید آخوندی می‌افزاید. مردم ایران رژیم آخوندی را پدرخوانده داعش و جامعه جهانی آن را بانی و حامی اصلی تروریسم بین‌المللی می‌شناسند: 1-رژیم منفور و کثیف آخوندی تاکنون 63 بار توسط ارگانهای مختلف ملل‌متحد بواسطه نقض حقوق‌بشر محکوم شده است. 120هزار تن بدلایل سیاسی اعدام شده‌اند که در بین آنها از دختران 13ساله تا مادران 70ساله و زنان باردار به چشم می‌خورد. بر اساس فتوای خمینی 30هزار زندانی سیاسی در سال 67 قتل‌عام شدند به‌نحوی که اعتراض جانشین وقت خمینی را بر انگیخت. خمینی او را عزل کرد و تا آخر عمر در بازداشت خانگی بود. ابراهیم رئیسی کاندید نمایش انتخابات ریاست‌جمهوری کنونی و مصطفی پورمحمدی وزیر دادگستری روحانی دو تن از هیأت چهارنفره‌ای بودند که خمینی برای اجرای این قتل‌عام منصوب کرده بود. وزیرخارجه آمریکا در روز 30فروردین گفت، رژیم ایران هم‌چنان یکی از بدترین کارنامه‌ها در زمینه نقض حقوق‌بشر را دارا است. مخالفان سیاسی مستمراً زندانی یا اعدام می‌شوند. 2- وزیر خارجه آمریکا همچنین در 30فروردین اعلام کرد: رژیم ایران به حمایت از رژیم سرکوبگر اسد در سوریه ادامه می‌دهد... که منجر به کشته شدن حدود نیم میلیون سوری و جابه‌جا شدن میلیونها تن دیگر شده است. ... . در عراق، ایران از برخی از گروه‌های شبه‌نظامی عراقی به‌ویژه از طریق نیروی قدس که برای سالیان زیرآب امنیت عراق را می‌زند حمایت می‌کند. ... در یمن، ایران به حمایت خود از تلاش حوثی‌ها برای سرنگونی حکومت از طریق ارائه تجهیزات نظامی، پول و آموزش ادامه داده... . امیال اتمی ایران یک ریسک بزرگ برای صلح و امنیت جهانی است. این عادت و رویکرد آنهاست که از هر امکانی که در اختیار داشته باشند برای آزار و ایجاد ناآرامی برای افراد و ملتها استفاده کنند. 3-گروهی از نمایندگان کنگره آمریکا در نامه‌ای به تاریخ 31مارس2017 به نخست‌وزیر آلبانی، ضمن قدردانی از پذیرش مجاهدین با اشاره به توطئه‌های این رژیم علیه مجاهدین نوشتند: «ما از شما می‌خواهیم که با دقت فعالیت‌های این رژیم رذل را در خاک آلبانی زیر نظر داشته باشید». 4-چهارده سال پس از اشغال عراق، در حالی‌که مزدوران رژیم ایران در این مدت مناصب کلیدی را در عراق در دست داشته‌اند حتی یک سند مبنی بر مشارکت سازمان مجاهدین خلق ایران در سرکوب مردم این کشور یافت نشده است. هوشیار زیباری که بیش از ده سال وزیر خارجه عراق بود در سال 1999 به‌عنوان عضو دفتر سیاسی و رئیس روابط بین‌الملل حزب دموکرات کردستان عراق، بزرگترین گروه کرد عراقی طی شهادت کتبی به دادگاه هلند نوشت: «ما تأیید می‌کنیم مجاهدین نه قبل و نه بعد از قیام (1990) در سرکوب مردم کردستان درگیر نبوده‌اند. ما هیچ‌گونه شواهدی از این‌که مجاهدین نسبت به مردم کردستان خصومت روا داشته باشند، نیافته‌ایم». 5-سازمان مجاهدین خلق ایران 52سال است علیه دیکتاتوری و برای آزادی و دموکراسی در ایران مبارزه می‌کند. مجاهدین نخستین کسانی بودندکه به‌خاطر نفوذ سیاسی و پایگاه اجتماعی خود به پروژه تسلیحات اتمی رژیم دسترسی داشتند و آن را برای ممانعت از دستیابی رژیم به بمب اتمی افشا کردند. این سازمان عضو شورای ملی مقاومت ایران است که برای استقرار یک جمهوری دموکراتیک کثرت‌گرا و جدایی دین از دولت در ایران مبارزه می‌کند. اکثریت اعضای دهها پارلمان در آمریکا، اروپا و خاورمیانه و بالاترین رهبران سیاسی اروپا و آمریکایی از هر دو حزب، حمایت خود را از برنامه 10 ماده‌ای خانم مریم رجوی، رئیس‌جمهور برگزیده این شورا اعلام کرده‌اند. کنگره و سنای آمریکا در لوایح و قطعنامه‌های مختلف بر حقوق انکار ناپذیر مجاهدان اشرف و لیبرتی تأکید کرده‌اند. 6-متهم کردن مجاهدین به تروریسم از سوی رژیمی که بالاترین مقاماتش به‌خاطر اقدامات تروریستی توسط قضاییه بسیاری از کشورها از جمله آلمان، سوئیس، آرژانتین و... تحت تعقیب هستند مضحک است. اتهام کشتن آمریکایی‌ها نیز مانند کشتار شیعیان و اکراد عراقی دیگر اثر ندارد و صرفاً حاکی از چنتة خالی مزدورانی است که اکنون افسوس می‌خورند که چرا طی 14سال و دهها حمله و انفجار و موشک‌باران، نتوانستند اپوزیسیون اصلی رژیم در عراق اشغال شده را نابود و منهدم کنند! 7-رژیم پلید آخوندی تاکنون در خارج از ایران مرتکب صدها عمل تروریستی شده که توسط سفارتخانه‌ها و دیپلومات‌تروریستهای این رژیم تدارک و سازماندهی شده است. ترور دکتر کاظم رجوی در ژنو، محمد حسین نقدی در رم، اکبر قربانی و زهرا رجبی و علی مرادی در استانبول، محمدحسین ارباب در کراچی، شاپور بختیار در پاریس، رهبران کرد در وین و برلین، انفجار آمیا در آرژانتین در این شمار است. 8-با توجه به سوابق و عملکرد مجرمانه دیکتاتوری منفور آخوندی و عوامل و مزدوران و لانه‌های جاسوسی آن در کشورهای مختلف جهان، از دولت آلبانی خواستار اخراج مأموران و مزدوران و جاسوسان دیکتاتوری تروریستی از آلبانی و ممانعت از ورود آنها به این کشور هستیم. این منطبق با تصمیم شورای اتحادیه اروپا در آوریل 1997 است که پس از حکم دادگاه فدرال برلین صادر شد که رهبر، رئیس‌جمهور، وزیر اطلاعات و وزیر خارجه این رژیم را مسئول ترور مخالفان در خارج کشور اعلام کرد. سازمان مجاهدین خلق ایران اول اردیبهشت1396

US Supreme Court takes narrow view on tribal immunityThe US Supreme Court took a narrow view Tuesday on the immunity from lawsuits enjoyed by Native American tribes, which are treated in some respects like sovereign states that cannot be sued in American courts. In a case involving a limousine driver who rear-ended a car on a Connecticut freeway, the highest court in the land ruled unanimously that tribal employees do not always have immunity when involved in incidents that take place far from reservations. The justices revived a civil lawsuit filed by the injured occupants of the car in state court, overturning the Connecticut Supreme Court's decision to dismiss the case because the driver worked for the Mohegan Tribe, which runs a casino in the state.

The documents, requested by US media outlets which reported on their contents Tuesday, say passenger David Dao was "aggressive," and that one of the three officers attempting to remove him from his seat on United Flight 3411 had lost his grip when Dao flailed his arms, causing the 69-year-old to fall and injure himself. The reports also for the first time identified the three Chicago Department of Aviation officers on the plane, one of whom wrote that they had used "minimal but necessary force" to remove Dao from the packed flight to Louisville, Kentucky.

The group last month helped sink an effort to pass a Republican healthcare overhaul, called the American Health Care Act. "While the revised version still does not fully repeal Obamacare, we are prepared to support it to keep our promise to the American people to lower healthcare costs," the House Freedom Caucus said in a statement posted on the website of its chairman, Republican Representative Mark Meadows.

Hezbollah's defiant signal to Israel, Lebanon, and the UNThe stated objective of the Hezbollah-coordinated press tour of southern Lebanon was to see new Israeli defensive installations on the border – indications, according to the powerful Shiite Lebanese militia, of Israeli fears of Hezbollah’s growing military might. The unprecedented spectacle appeared to be a deliberate and calculated breach of a UN Security Council resolution that bans non-state forces from bearing arms in southern Lebanon, and it illustrated the unmatched sway Hezbollah wields, and the impunity it enjoys throughout the country.

It's funny how months of leaks and rumors can paint what appears to be a complete picture of an upcoming smartphone. But then, once the device is finally announced, a different picture forms. All of the components and details that leak never quite seem to accurately portray the finished product, and this was exactly the case with Samsung's new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Months of leaks and rumors left precious few surprises when Samsung finally unveiled its new flagship phones last month, yet we were all still completely blown away.

If you've read my in-depth Galaxy S8 review, then you know just how impressed I am with these new phones. And if you bought one yourself over the weekend, you've now experienced firsthand what the future of smartphone design feels like. But as incredible as Samsung's new design is, and as impressive as its hardware has become, I still can't call the Galaxy S8 the world's best smartphone.

As I explained in my review, the Galaxy S8 is vastly superior to Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in terms of hardware design. Vastly. Samsung's curved edges on the front and back combined with incredibly narrow bezels result in a design that really looks and feels like the future of smartphones. As I also explained in a separate article, going back to my iPhone 7 Plus after using the Galaxy S8 feels like going back to an old tube TV after having used a flat-screen TV.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 looks better than the iPhone. It feels better than the iPhone. The display is much, much better than the screens on Apple's iPhones. But overall, it's still not the better device.

Now, I'm not suggesting that the Galaxy S8's beauty is only skin deep. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are by far the smoothest and most powerful Android phones the world has ever seen. What's more, Samsung's latest version of TouchWiz (now called Samsung Experience) is its best yet, and Samsung's own Android apps have improved as well on Android 7.0 Nougat. But still, Nougat is no iOS and the Galaxy S8 is no iPhone.

Now that I've been using the Galaxy S8+ for nearly two weeks, I can safely say Apple's iPhone 7 Plus is still the best smartphone on the planet. While the Galaxy S8+ beats (nay, destroys) the iPhone 7 Plus where design and display quality are concerned, the phone's meaningful advantages end there, for the most part.

Here are five key areas where the iPhone 7 Plus still has the edge:

  1. Software is important, and iOS is still better and smoother than Android. Even with Samsung's new and improved Samsung Experience, the iPhone still has a clear advantage. Samsung Connect is also a nice start, but Apple's Continuity features are miles ahead of Samsung in terms of carrying the user experience across devices and platforms. Some might argue that software is the most important thing on a smartphone, and Apple has a huge edge here.
  2. Apps are important, and iOS apps are still better and smoother than Android apps. Perhaps it's Google's loose third-party developer guidelines, or perhaps the company's developer tools aren't on par with Apple's. Whatever the case, the Android app experience remains terribly inconsistent, and iOS versions of apps are always more refined and simpler, even when the same app is available on both platforms.
  3. Performance is important, and the iPhone 7 Plus still outperforms the Galaxy S8+. Take one look at this real-world performance test and you'll see that Android still can't keep up with iOS, even when it's being propelled by next-generation processors like the Snapdragon 835.
  4. Battery life is important, and there's still nothing else out there that can touch the iPhone 7 Plus. I wasn't able to get a good feel for the Galaxy S8+'s battery life for my review since Samsung sent my review unit late, but I've now spent more time with the phone. It'll carry most people through a full day, but Apple's phablet outlasts the S8+ by a healthy margin.
  5. Customer care is important, and there isn't a consumer electronics company in the world that can even approach Apple in this key area. The company continues to invest heavily in after-sales service, and that investment will always pay off big time. Samsung has gotten better and its on-device customer service feature is a nice addition, but it's still nothing like dealing with Apple support.

Many people are tied to Android and Google's ecosystem, which is perfectly fine. For these people, the Galaxy S8 is as good as it gets. Google's services are the best in the world, and they're free. While most Google products are available on iOS these days, they'll never be as deeply integrated on the iPhone as they are on Android phones. But if you want the best overall user experience from top to bottom, there's only one place to turn. Samsung's Galaxy S8 is impressive, but the reigning king hasn't yet been dethroned.

Afghanistan arrests 35 soldiers after attack on base

Afghanistan arrests 35 soldiers after attack on baseAuthorities have arrested 35 soldiers who served on an army base in northern Afghanistan where the Taliban staged a deadly attack last week, officials said Wednesday, as fears grew they had inside help. The defence ministry released its official toll of 135 recruits killed in the assault on the sprawling base, home to the 209th Army Corps, outside the city of Mazar-i-Sharif in Balkh province on Friday. The brutal assault is believed to be the deadliest-ever Taliban attack on a military installation.

(Reuters) - Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said she had scrapped plans to speak on Thursday at the University of California at Berkeley in defiance of campus officials, who had barred her original engagement this week out of concerns about inciting violent protests. Coulter, one America's best-known and most polarizing pundits on the political right, cast blame on conservative student organizers who withdrew their invitation following their dispute with university officials. "There will be no speech," Coulter wrote in an email to Reuters on Wednesday.

Amazon’s $96 sound bar is so good it doesn’t need a separate subwoofer

Amazon’s $96 sound bar is so good it doesn’t need a separate subwoofer

It used to be that if you wanted to add decent sound to your TV, you need to spend upwards of $1,000 on a surround sound system. The the home audio market got much more competitive, and prices began to fall. Things really took a turn when companies began launching sound bars, which cost less to make and didn't require users to run cables all over their homes. Fast-forward to today, and you can get a solid sound bar with a wireless subwoofer for between $200 and $300.

And then there's the AmazonBasics 2.1 Channel Bluetooth Sound Bar with Built-In Subwoofer, a 4-star rated home audio solution that costs less than $100. The nifty design builds the sub right into the sound bar itself, delivering great sound, a compact design, and the easiest possible installation.

Here are a few more details from the product page:

U.S. says strategy on North Korea centers on sanctions, open to talks

U.S. says strategy on North Korea centers on sanctions, open to talksBy Phil Stewart and David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration said on Wednesday it aimed to push North Korea into dismantling its nuclear and missile programs through tougher international sanctions and diplomatic pressure, and remained open to negotiations to bring that about. The U.S. stance, which appeared to signal a willingness to exhaust non-military avenues despite repeated warnings that "all options are on the table," came in a statement following an unusual White House-hosted briefing for the entire U.S. Senate followed by a briefing to the House of Representatives. Graphic - Carl Vinson strike group: http://tmsnrt.rs/2pqOMWA Graphic - North Korea's nuclear program: http://tmsnrt.rs/2n0gd92 The statement from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats described North Korea as "an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority." North Korea's growing nuclear and missile threat is perhaps the most serious security challenge confronting President Donald Trump, who has vowed to prevent North Korea from being able to hit the United States with a nuclear missile - a capability experts say Pyongyang could have some time after 2020.

What we do in the next 5 years will determine the fate of the melting Arctic

What we do in the next 5 years will determine the fate of the melting ArcticGlobal warming has pushed the Arctic into a new state unprecedented in human history, with thinning and retreating sea ice, skyrocketing air and sea temperatures, melting permafrost, and glaciers that are shedding ice at increasing rates.  All of these impacts and more may seem remote at first — after all, few of us live in Nunavut — but if you're a coastal resident anywhere in the world, from New York City to Dhaka, Bangladesh, what happens in the Arctic will affect you during the next several decades and beyond, primarily through sea level rise.  SEE ALSO: Trump White House reveals it's 'not familiar' with well-studied costs of global warming The economic effects of all Arctic warming impacts may be enough to dent the gross domestic product of some countries, with cost estimates ranging from $7 trillion to $90 trillion by the end of this century. These are the conclusions of a new, comprehensive assessment of the Arctic climate by a division of the Arctic Council — a cooperative, governing body that helps oversee development in the Far North.  Sea ice (TOP) meets land as seen from NASA's Operation IceBridge research aircraft above Greenland.Image: Mario Tama/Getty ImagesThe scientific report, released on Tuesday, is known as Snow, Water, Ice, and Permafrost in the Arctic, or SWIPA. About 90 scientists helped produce the report, while more than two-dozen experts peer-reviewed the results.  The document contains two key findings that anyone concerned about the future of not just the Arctic, but the entire globe, should take note of.  The first is that the Arctic Ocean could be free of summer sea ice starting as early as the late 2030s, which is earlier than other estimates have shown. The second is that rapid Arctic warming is driving greater melting of land ice in the region, which led scientists to conclude that consensus projections of global sea level rise made in 2013 are too conservative. Compared to the previous SWIPA report, which was produced in 2011, the new assessment paints a far more dire picture of an Arctic climate in overdrive.  It also offers hope that action can be taken now to slow down and eventually stabilize Arctic warming after about the year 2050. But time is running out. Even with rapid action to curb global warming pollutants like carbon dioxide and methane, the Arctic most of us grew up with — featuring thick sea ice making the region virtually impenetrable year-round — is gone, and is not likely to return anytime in the next century.  Sea ice thickness trends, showing the thinning trend in recent years.Image: zack labe"... The Arctic of today is different in many respects from the Arctic of the past century, or even the Arctic of 20 years ago," the report states. "Many of the changes underway are due to a simple fact: Ice, snow, and frozen ground — the components of the Arctic cryosphere — are sensitive to heat."  Based on computer model projections, the report states that average fall and winter temperatures in the Arctic will increase up to 5 degrees Celsius, or 9 degrees Fahrenheit, above late 20th century values by the middle of the century, even if relatively stringent greenhouse gas emissions cuts are made.  Such temperature thresholds are already being reached in some months, with January 2016 recording a temperature anomaly of 9 degrees Fahrenheit above the 1981-2010 average for the region, with even higher anomalies seen during October through February of the same year.  This past winter was the warmest on record for the Arctic, and for the third straight year, Arctic sea ice peaked at a record low level during the winter. This has left sea ice in a precariously thin and sparse state as the upcoming melt season nears.  The report contains valuable findings on what would happen to Arctic climate change if the world were to come close to meeting the goals set by the Paris Climate Agreement. That treaty, which went into force in November 2016, aims to keep global warming to well under 2 degrees Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, above preindustrial levels through the year 2100.  It's unclear whether the agreement's goals are still feasible, considering that the U.S. — the world's second-largest emitter — is considering pulling out of it altogether, and other nations have yet to offer plans to cut their emissions in line with the temperature target.  A "drunken forest" in Fairbanks Alaska where trees are collapsing into the ground due to permafrost melt.Image: Warming Images/REX/ShutterstockMeeting the Paris targets would help slow the pace and reduce the severity of Arctic warming, but it "would not stabilize the loss of Arctic glaciers, ice sheets, and ice caps," the report states.  "The recent SWIPA assessment tells that the changes in the Arctic are bound to continue at the current rate until mid-century," said Morten Skovgaard Olsen, who chaired the new report, in an email.  "But it also tells that immediate and ambitious green-house gas reductions will slow the speed of changes beyond mid-century and even stabilize change beyond mid century, preventing major further impacts associated with the Arctic melt .” Any carbon pollution cuts made now will have the most significant influence on what the Arctic will look like after about 2050, the report's authors said at a press conference Tuesday in Virginia.  “The changes are cumulative, and so what we do in the next 5 years is really important on slowing down the changes that will happen in the next 30 or 40 years," said James Overland, a climate scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  "The emphasis on action and immediacy is one of the main findings” from the report, he said.  NASA project scientist Nathan Kurtz surveys an iceberg locked in sea ice near Pituffik, Greenland.Image: mario tama/Getty ImagesForeign ministers from the eight Arctic nations will meet in Fairbanks, Alaska on May 11 to discuss these findings and other issues pertaining to the region. Some discussion on the Paris agreement may take place, particularly along the sidelines of the talks. According to the SWIPA report, meltwater from Arctic glaciers has contributed 35 percent of current sea level rise, with the greatest contribution coming from Greenland.  The planet's largest island lost an average of 375 gigatons of ice per year. This is equivalent to losing a block of ice measuring 4.6 miles on all sides, from 2011 to 2014 alone. It amounts to twice the melt rate from 2003 to 2008. In addition, thawing permafrost is harming infrastructure from Alaska to Siberia, with landslides and mysterious craters swallowing parts of the Russian Arctic.  In Alaska, the report found that wildfires in taiga forests are worse now than at any time in the past 10,000 years, due to hotter, drier summers and earlier spring snowmelt.

If you own an Amazon Echo Dot, you know quite well that it’s the best way to interact with Alexa (and if you don’t have an Echo Dot, definitely grab one now while 3-packs are on sale at their lowest price of 2017 so far). But the Echo Dot isn’t perfect, of course, and that’s where third-party accessories come into play. We’d like to bring two accessories in particular to your attention in this post, because they both make Amazon’s Echo Dot so much better. The first is the Fremo Evo, a great little attachment that transforms your stationary Echo Dot into a portable Alexa speaker. The second is the LANMU Wall Mount, which fixes your Dot to the wall when you’re not on the go, clearing space and keeping your Echo Dot out of the way.

On Tuesday, the World Trade Organisation ruled that Mexico is allowed to impose $163m (£127m) a year in sanctions against the US on trade in tuna, ending a years-long dispute. The clash, which dates back to 2008, centred on the US insisting that any Mexican tuna sold in the US must have a ‘dolphin safe’ guarantee, meaning that no dolphins were killed by fishermen catching the tuna.

U.S. slams South Sudan's Kiir over 'man-made' famine, urges truce

U.S. slams South Sudan's Kiir over 'man-made' famine, urges truceBy Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United States slammed South Sudan's President Salva Kiir on Tuesday for the African state's "man-made" famine and ongoing conflict, urging him to fulfill a month-old pledge of a unilateral truce by ordering his troops back to their barracks. "We must see a sign that progress is possible," U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told a United Nations Security Council briefing on South Sudan. "We must see that ceasefire implemented." South Sudan descended into civil war in 2013 after Kiir fired his deputy, unleashing a conflict that has spawned armed factions often following ethnic lines.

Unicorn frappucinos are dead. Long live dragon frappuccinos.

Unicorn frappucinos are dead. Long live dragon frappuccinos.A couple days ago, we suggested other mythical creatures who are not unicorns that deserve to have their own frappuccinos.  Little did we know, one of those frappuccinos was indeed developing in the shadows of the unicorn frappuccino. And now, with the unicorn frappuccino run officially over at Starbucks, that new frappuccino has come into the spotlight. Introducing the dragon frappuccino. SEE ALSO: Starbucks baristas are now creating 'unicorn lemonade' and there's no end to this 109/365: I apologized profusely to my barista before ordering the basic AF #unicornfrappuccino - thankfully they were out of the ingredients and offered me something not only cooler and better tasting, but easier to make: the #dragonfrappuccino @starbucks #ionlyordereditbecauseitmatchesmyhair A post shared by Mercy Martin 濾 (@heyymercyy) on Apr 19, 2017 at 9:34pm PDT It appears that some Starbucks locations, such as the one in the Instagram picture above, had run out of ingredients to make the insanely popular Unicorn Frappuccino. So instead, baristas offered a new, unofficial concoction: the dragon frappuccino. In fact, at least one location tried to make the drink official with sign that proclaimed it as a store exclusive. However, since it's not a product made by Starbucks HQ, you probably won't be able to find it in the majority of stores and the recipes vary. A post shared by Varin Thorn (@varin_thorn) on Apr 21, 2017 at 9:05pm PDT Many Instagram posts have explained that it's a green tea frappuccino with vanilla bean powder and a berry swirl on the inside of the cup. One post saw the green tea being mixed with dried blueberries to create the purple color along with the green. A Starbucks created this to replace the unicorn frappuccino so we duplicated it and it's yummy!!! #dragonfrappuccino A post shared by Smith's Starbucks (@starbucks.smiths) on Apr 26, 2017 at 9:58am PDT We think the moral of the story is that people are starting to become more and more creative in either what they create at Starbucks or what they force their baristas to create. And then we just slap a catchy name to it. So long live creativity and frappuccinos. WATCH: Woman uses Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino to spread some magical news to her husband

Donald Trump signs executive order that could allow companies to mine and drill for oil at national monuments

Donald Trump signs executive order that could allow companies to mine and drill for oil at national monumentsPresident Donald Trump has signed an executive order that critics say could lead to the removal of decades' worth of federal land protections. Critics say this will allow the Trump administration to roll back protections that prevent drilling, mining and logging on the public land. For more than 20 years, presidents have used the Antiquities Act to designate certain federal lands and waters as national monuments.
