  • Islamic State blows up historic Mosul mosque where it declared 'caliphate': Iraqi military

    By Marius Bosch and Maher Chmaytelli MOSUL/ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Islamic State militants on Wednesday blew up the Grand al-Nuri Mosque of Mosul and its famous leaning minaret, an Iraqi military statement said, as Iraqi forces seeking to expel the group from the city closed in on the site. It was from this medieval mosque three years ago that the militants' leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a self-styled "caliphate" spanning parts of Syria and Iraq. Islamic State's Amaq news agency accused American aircraft of destroying the mosque, a claim swiftly denied by the U.S.-led international coalition fighting the hardline Sunni group.

    Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson testifies about Russian meddling in the 2016 election before the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill June 21, 2017. President Trump fired off a barrage of tweets Thursday morning, hammering away at the “big Dem scam” and “big Dem HOAX!” in the aftermath of former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s testimony the day before about Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election. In particular, Trump seized upon Johnson’s comment that the Democratic National Committee was among those who rebuffed his department’s offer for assistance during the Russian attack.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas and Ron Johnson, R-Wis. said in a statement that the proposal did not go far enough to overhaul the current system. “There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear that this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to the Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs,” the group said in the release.

More than half of Americans want stricter gun laws, while still preserving the rights of most people in most places to carry most types of guns, a Pew Research Center survey has found. While half of Americans see gun violence as a very big problem in their country, fewer than 10% of American adults said that “almost no one” should be able to legally own a gun, and only 10% said that “almost no types” of guns should be legally available to buy.

  • An asteroid is definitely going to hit the Earth, expert warns

    Golocal247.com news

    Space is a dangerous place to be, and since the Earth is in space, every living thing on the planet is at risk of eventually feeling its wrath. Asteroids are the most clear and present threat that our Solar System poses to us, and you only need to look at the scars on the Earth, our moon, and other planets in our neighborhood to see exactly how real that danger is. Now, a Queen's University Belfast researcher is warning that the Earth is definitely going to be hit, it's just a matter of when. The expert, Alan Fitzsimmons, points out that an event similar to that of the 1908 meteoroid explosion over the Tunguska region in Russia's Siberia — which leveled a forest and damaged buildings but didn't result in any human deaths — could happen again, and if it did happen over a major city, the results would be devastating. "Astronomers find near-Earth asteroids every day and most are harmless," Fitzsimmons reportedly said. "But it is still possible the next Tunguska would take us by surprise, and although we are much better at finding larger asteroids, that does us no good if we are not prepared to do something about them." It's a fitting warning as we approach June 30th, which is observed as Astroid Day. On June 30th, researchers and former astronauts will host a live stream to answer questions from the general public which are sourced from social media. You can bet there will be plenty of talk about the potential for collisions with near-Earth objects, so if such a thing interests you, it's a great time to get the facts straight from the experts.

    North Korea's treatment of an American student who died after being released from detention in a coma was inhuman and US patience with Pyongyang is running out, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Wednesday. Otto Warmbier, 22, suffered severe brain damage in North Korea and died on Monday following 18 months of captivity in North Korea after he was sentenced to hard labor for stealing a political poster from a hotel. "To see a young man go over there healthy and, (after) a minor act of mischief, come home dead basically... this goes beyond any kind of understanding of law and order, of humanity, of responsibility towards any human being," Mattis said.

    Two anti-abortion activists charged with felony eavesdropping for secretly filming abortion providers in California lost their bid for dismissal of the case on Wednesday, but the judge ordered prosecutors to amend a criminal complaint he deemed too vague. San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Christopher Hite gave the state attorney general's office until mid-July to file a revised complaint that describes the accusations in greater detail, including specific dates, alleged victims and circumstances. Hite ruled the identities of alleged victims would remain under court seal and admonished lawyers to keep that information confidential, after the defense team for one defendant, David Daleiden, was found to have posted videos and other identifying material online.

    Republican leaders in the Senate finally unveiled a draft of the healthcare legislation aimed at replacing Obamacare, but immediately hit a huge obstacle with at least four of the party’s Senators saying they would not vote for the plan in its current form. The fate of the bill is now up in the air - not for the first time - with Democrats only needing the support of three Republicans to vote down the legislation. The Republicans hold a 52 to 48 advantage in the Senate, and can afford to lose two votes, with Vice President Mike Pence being able to beak a tie.

    This pensive dog upstaged his owner and wasn't even aware of it. SEE ALSO: Friendly island doggo followed a street view mapper and photobombed all his shots Inventor Jerry Paros posed for a photograph for an article in the publication Nature about his invention — an ultra precise quartz sensor that could contribute to an early-warning system designed to detect shifts in the sea floor that cause tsunamis. Tsunamis are caused primarily by earthquakes that occur in the seafloor, since rapid shifts in elevation can generate waves that cross oceans in a matter of several hours. In 2011, a massive tsunami hit northern Japan following a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the coast, resulting in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukashima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

    France no longer sees the departure of President Bashar al-Assad as a priority in the Syrian conflict, President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday, making the policy official for the first time. The new French leader said instead that fighting jihadists such as the Islamic State group had to be the international community's number one goal in a conflict that grew out of protests against the Syrian president in 2011 but has since become increasingly complex and multifaceted. "The real change I've made on this question, is that I haven't said the deposing of Bashar al-Assad is a prerequisite for everything," Macron said in an interview with several European newspapers, including Britain's Guardian, Spain's El Pais and Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

    A court has told the Israeli airline El Al that it can no longer ask women passengers to switch seats if ultra-Orthodox Jewish men object to sitting next to them, an Israeli advocacy group said on Thursday. A case for damages from the carrier was brought by 83-year-old Renee Rabinowitz, who was asked by a flight attendant, after boarding a flight from Newark to Tel Aviv in 2015, if she would agree to move. The airline has said it tries to accommodate ultra-Orthodox men, who cite religious beliefs in seeking to avoid close proximity to women other than their wives, but never pressures female passengers to accede to a seat swap request.

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday refused to overturn the convictions of seven men in a notorious 1984 gang murder of a woman in a Washington neighborhood not far from the U.S. Capitol even though prosecutors had concealed evidence in the case. The justices, in a 6-2 ruling, said the evidence withheld by the prosecution at the time of the trial, which the men claimed would have cast doubt on their guilt in the murder of Catherine Fuller, was not material to the eventual jury verdict. The case has stayed the public eye not only because of the grisly nature of the murder that occurred during a period of high crime in the U.S. capital city in the 1980s but also because of the Supreme Court's decision to scrutinize the process that led to the convictions.

Foreign ministers from the 34-nation OAS bloc failed on Monday to agree on a resolution formally rebuking Venezuela, where at least 75 people have been killed in more than two months of protests. Now a group of nations, led by the United States, Mexico and regional allies, may try to include a declaration on Venezuela, tucking it into a more general resolution on human rights, according to two officials close to the closed-door talks.

  • New photos show us what the final Model 3 design will probably look like

    Golocal247.com news

    Tesla's final Model 3 unveiling is set to take place next month, but an enterprising Redditor happened to spot a Model 3 charging at a Supercharger station in California and managed to take the most detailed and instructive photos we've seen yet. Whereas most of the Model 3 photos we've seen in recent weeks have been taken of a Model 3 in motion, the most recent crop of Model 3 photos were carefully taken while the car was sitting still. What's more, the Tesla employee driving the car reportedly told the Redditor that the Model 3 design is "pretty much" final at this point. While this is admittedly a second-hand blurb, it stands to reason that this is indeed accurate given that July is right around the corner. So without further ado, featured below are a series of photos which provide us with our crispest look yet at what the shipping version of the Model 3 is actually going to look like. The front-on view is essentially similar to what we've seen from the beginning, with the Model 3 below in the center and flanked by two Model S vehicles. And now a side view for good measure. A shot of the Model 3 from the rear. A close-up shot of the interior gives us our first solid look at what the final steering wheel design may look like. Alas, this is a far cry from the spaceship style design Elon Musk promised on Twitter many months back. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/716729420078133248 Moving along, this shot of the interior showcases an elegant wood trim, in line with other Model 3 spy shots we've seen over the past few weeks. Note that the display on the Model 3 is 15-inches and a tad smaller than the display that comes standard on both the Model S and the Model X. Not much too see here, just a Model 3 getting some juice. And last but not least, pictured below is a Model 3 with a decidedly unorthodox rims. Pictures aside, we also have a pretty firm grasp on what type of specs the Model 3 will bring to the table. According to an official product sheet from Tesla that was released not too long ago, the entry level Model 3 will have a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a minimum range of 215 miles on a single charge.
