    The top U.S. diplomat for Africa was due in Khartoum on Wednesday to join an international push to salvage a deal between Sudan's military rulers and opposition groups two months after the overthrow of former President Omar al-Bashir.

The I&E FX window, also know as the Nafex window, was introduced in 2017 as Nigeria sought to attract capital inflows by offering investors a weaker and market-determined naira rate.

    A helicopter crash-landed on top of a 51-storey building in New York City on Monday, catching fire and killing the pilot. The helicopter took off at 1:32pm from the heliport on 34th Street, and flew for 11 minutes before crashing. The pilot was named by local media on Monday night as Tim McCormack, and he had been flying a private client shortly before the accident. He had finished the trip, and was heading home to Linden, New Jersey, when the crash happened. The helicopter was reportedly owned by a company called American Continental Properties Inc, the New York Post said.

  • 42/67   iPhone 11 may finally ditch Lightning for USB-C
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    A report a few weeks ago claimed the iPhone 11 will ship with an 18W charger in the box, which is easily one of the most exciting iPhone 11 rumors so far. That's the same USB-C charger that ships with the 2019 iPad Pros and which can be purchased separately from Apple's store (both online and off).The charger would deliver faster iPhone charging as well as improve compatibility with new MacBooks and PCs right out of the box. You won't need to spend extra cash on a faster charger or on a USB-C to Lightning cable that would work with the newest computers. But what if the iPhone 11 also comes with USB-C ports instead of Lightning?Apple surprised the world last fall when it switched the iPad Pro from Lightning to USB-C, just as rumors said it would. There are plenty of reasons for Apple to go down the USB-C route on the iPad Pro, including fast charging as well as immediate support for a variety of USB-C products. After all, nobody likes buying dongles.Furthermore, iPadOS will make that USB-C port even more useful, as iPad users are getting support for expandable storage and mouse support. Moreover, with macOS 10.15's Sidecar, you'll be able to turn the iPad screen into a secondary Mac display, and you have both wired and wireless options to accomplish that.There was no sign at the time that Apple would bring USB-C to the iPhone as well, but a new discovery in iOS 13 beta seems to indicate that it could happen:https://twitter.com/Raf___m/status/1136979530944565248A Twitter user from France observed new visuals in iOS 13 when connecting the iPhone to the Mac to perform a restore. Rather than the familiar Lightning cable and iTunes icon that would appear on the iPhone screen in previous iOS versions, we now have the image of a laptop and what appears to be a USB-C cable.The new image might not mean anything. Apple might be using more generic visuals to convey the message that you need to connect the iPhone to a MacBook. Then again, Apple's visuals are usually pretty specific.The iPhone 11 series of phones are widely expected to feature the same design as their predecessors when it comes to the display, although there's a major change when it comes to the primary camera. Each of the three new handsets is getting an extra lens on the back, according to recent leaks. The potential addition of USB-C support to iPhone would easily be another highlight for the iPhone 11 series.

  • 47/67   Trump news: House votes to take Barr and McGahn to court, as president launches bizarre tirade over European tourism
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Donald Trump has tweeted an article about a boom in European tourism as a means of continuing his attack on the US Federal Reserve, arguing domestic interest rates are too high and attacking its policy of “ridiculous quantitative tightening”, declaring: “They don’t have a clue!”This comes after the House Judiciary Committee announced it had struck a deal with the Justice Department to gain access to redacted interview notes from FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, including “first-hand accounts of misconduct” relating to President Trump, in exchange for not immediately pursing a contempt of Congress action against attorney general William Barr.A full session of the House of Representatives will still vote as planned on Tuesday on a resolution making it easier to sue the administration and potential witnesses if they refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas, as ex-White House counsel Don McGahn did when asked to give testimony before the Judiciary Committee on whether the president attempted to obstruct justice.Meanwhile, Mr Trump and Joe Biden assailed each other during overlapping visits to Iowa on Tuesday, previewing what the country might get in next year’s election if Mr Biden becomes his party’s nominee.Even before he left the White House, the president unleashed a series of schoolyard taunts, declaring that “Joe Biden is a dummy.” Mr Biden quickly retorted that the president is “an existential threat to this country.”The back-and-forth laid bare the rising political stakes for each, even with Election Day 2020 still about 17 months away. Mr Trump has zeroed in on Mr Biden as a potential threat to his re-election chances and is testing themes to beat him back. Mr Biden, meanwhile, is campaigning as a front-runner, relishing the one-on-one fight with Mr Trump while making sure he doesn’t ignore the demands of the Democratic primary.The former vice president hit Mr Trump on the economy — an issue the president often promotes as his chief strength in a time of low unemployment.“I hope his presence here will be a clarifying event because Iowa farmers have been crushed by his tariffs toward China,” Mr Biden said. “It’s really easy to be tough when someone else absorbs the pain, farmers and manufacturers.”The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Scientists believe that over the course of evolution fish species such as the convict cichlid have developed loyal partnerships as a way to better protect their young, which are extremely vulnerable to predators.

  • 55/67   At Today’s NASA, Success Is Not an Option
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    The Trump administration has proposed a bold new initiative, dubbed the Artemis Program, that will send astronauts to the Moon by 2024 and Mars by 2033. As detailed by NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine in a presentation on May 23, the program will include some 37 launches by 2028, kicked off by the maiden launch of the agency’s new Space Launch System (SLS) heavy-lift booster in October 2020.Unfortunately, the program as currently conceived is very unlikely to succeed, as it appears to be designed primarily as a mechanism for distributing funds, rather than for accomplishing goals in space. This was made clear when Bridenstine said that a baseline condition for the program would be that all piloted missions would use the SLS booster and the Orion crew capsule, neither of which has yet flown, rather than much cheaper alternatives that have flown. Furthermore, at 26 tons the Orion is so heavy that the SLS cannot deliver it to low lunar orbit with enough propellant for it to fly home. So rather than using a SpaceX Dragon (which at 10 tons is still 50 percent larger than the Apollo crew capsule), which either SLS or the already operational and vastly cheaper ($150 million per launch, compared to over $1 billion for SLS) Falcon Heavy could readily deliver, NASA is proposing to build a new space station, called the Deep Space Gateway, in a high orbit around the Moon, as a halfway house accessible to Orion.NASA is trying to justify the Gateway with platitudes claiming that it will “provide a command center,” “create resilience,” and “establish a strategic presence around the Moon,” but this is all nonsense. The fact of the matter is that a lunar-orbiting space station is a liability, not an asset. It is not needed to support flights to the Moon and is certainly not, as NASA claims, necessary or even useful as a base for flights to Mars. It will cost a fortune to build and a fortune to maintain and will impose significant-to-severe propulsion and timing-constraint penalties on any mission that is forced to make use of it -- as they all surely will be, to avoid public exposure of the Gateway’s uselessness.NASA has properly targeted the south pole of the Moon for its intended landing, because ice resources there could be turned into hydrogen/oxygen propellant. This could allow lunar-excursion vehicles to explore the Moon or take off and return directly to Earth orbit, where they could be readily refueled, making the whole transportation system fully reusable and much more capable and economical. It would also free up our heavy-lift capabilities from lunar-logistics service so we could move rapidly onward to Mars. But putting the base in orbit rather than on the surface will make those resources worthless, because it would take more propellant to lift the ice to the Gateway than the amount of propellant the ice would yield. Moreover, because it is wasting billions on building the Gateway and launching a politically motived SLS flight in the fall of 2020 without a meaningful payload, NASA does not have enough money to support the development of a lunar lander -- which is actually needed if you want to land on the Moon. The agency has therefore made a request for more cash, which the White House has supported with the kiss of death -- a requirement that the funds be drawn from Pell Grants, guaranteeing rejection in the Democrat-controlled Congress.Apparently, success is not an option, so the key priority is to assign blame.Engineering is the art of making the impossible possible. Bureaucracy is the art of making the possible impossible. By choosing bureaucracy over engineering, the administration’s planners have transformed human space exploration from a mission into a vision.VIEW SLIDESHOW: Apollo 11The question is fundamentally this: Will NASA have a purpose-driven plan or a vendor-driven plan? A purpose-driven plan spends money to do things. A vendor-driven plan does things in order to spend money. For the half century since Apollo, NASA’s robotic planetary-exploration and space-astronomy programs have made epic accomplishments, because they have remained purpose-driven. In contrast, NASA’s human-spaceflight program has become vendor-driven and been allowed to drift. If we let NASA remain in this mode, we will not reach the Moon by 2024 or Mars by 2033. But if we insist that our entire space program be purpose-driven, taking full advantage of space resources to reduce the number of launches and the entrepreneurial space revolution to sharply cut their costs, we can not only meet these long-overdue goals, but greatly exceed them to truly commence humanity’s history as a multi-planet spacefaring species.Such is the choice before us.

    The Trump administration has proposed a bold new initiative, dubbed the Artemis Program, that will send astronauts to the Moon by 2024 and Mars by 2033. As detailed by NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine in a presentation on May 23, the program will include some 37 launches by 2028, kicked off by the maiden launch of the agency’s new Space Launch System (SLS) heavy-lift booster in October 2020.Unfortunately, the program as currently conceived is very unlikely to succeed, as it appears to be designed primarily as a mechanism for distributing funds, rather than for accomplishing goals in space. This was made clear when Bridenstine said that a baseline condition for the program would be that all piloted missions would use the SLS booster and the Orion crew capsule, neither of which has yet flown, rather than much cheaper alternatives that have flown. Furthermore, at 26 tons the Orion is so heavy that the SLS cannot deliver it to low lunar orbit with enough propellant for it to fly home. So rather than using a SpaceX Dragon (which at 10 tons is still 50 percent larger than the Apollo crew capsule), which either SLS or the already operational and vastly cheaper ($150 million per launch, compared to over $1 billion for SLS) Falcon Heavy could readily deliver, NASA is proposing to build a new space station, called the Deep Space Gateway, in a high orbit around the Moon, as a halfway house accessible to Orion.NASA is trying to justify the Gateway with platitudes claiming that it will “provide a command center,” “create resilience,” and “establish a strategic presence around the Moon,” but this is all nonsense. The fact of the matter is that a lunar-orbiting space station is a liability, not an asset. It is not needed to support flights to the Moon and is certainly not, as NASA claims, necessary or even useful as a base for flights to Mars. It will cost a fortune to build and a fortune to maintain and will impose significant-to-severe propulsion and timing-constraint penalties on any mission that is forced to make use of it -- as they all surely will be, to avoid public exposure of the Gateway’s uselessness.NASA has properly targeted the south pole of the Moon for its intended landing, because ice resources there could be turned into hydrogen/oxygen propellant. This could allow lunar-excursion vehicles to explore the Moon or take off and return directly to Earth orbit, where they could be readily refueled, making the whole transportation system fully reusable and much more capable and economical. It would also free up our heavy-lift capabilities from lunar-logistics service so we could move rapidly onward to Mars. But putting the base in orbit rather than on the surface will make those resources worthless, because it would take more propellant to lift the ice to the Gateway than the amount of propellant the ice would yield. Moreover, because it is wasting billions on building the Gateway and launching a politically motived SLS flight in the fall of 2020 without a meaningful payload, NASA does not have enough money to support the development of a lunar lander -- which is actually needed if you want to land on the Moon. The agency has therefore made a request for more cash, which the White House has supported with the kiss of death -- a requirement that the funds be drawn from Pell Grants, guaranteeing rejection in the Democrat-controlled Congress.Apparently, success is not an option, so the key priority is to assign blame.Engineering is the art of making the impossible possible.

  • 57/67   Joe Biden vows to 'cure cancer' if he is elected president
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    Joe Biden has vowed to “cure cancer” if he is elected as president.The Democratic hopeful made the bold pledge at a 2020 election campaign rally in Iowa.The former vice-president, whose son died of brain cancer in 2015, told supporters on Tuesday: “I promise you if I'm elected president you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America. We’re going to cure cancer.”His words were met with cheers and applause at the event in the city of Ottumwa.Improving cancer care has long been a focus of Mr Biden, whose eldest son Beau battled the disease for years before his death at the age of 46.During his time in Barack Obama’s administration, Mr Biden unveiled a “cancer moonshot” agenda with a stated ambition of making “a decade’s worth of advances in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, in five years”.After leaving office in 2017, he established the non-profit Biden Cancer Initiative as “a response to the lack of a cohesive, comprehensive and timely approach to cancer prevention”.Mr Biden’s vow to end cancer unsurprisingly raised eyebrows on social media, where some accused him of giving people "false hope". There are more than 100 types of cancer and it is unlikely scientists could establish a single cure for them all.Science journalist and geneticist Rob Arthur said Mr Biden's vow was a "lofty goal but a dumb thing to promise". He added: "There is not and for the foreseeable future cannot be a single ‘cure for cancer’. Cancer is an incredibly heterogeneous disease – breast cancer is not like brain cancer is not like leukaemia, and no cure would work on all of them.”Others wanted Mr Biden to instead focus his attention on pursuing universal healthcare for Americans.“My grandpa is dying of cancer right now and can’t live with my grandma anymore because their insurance won’t cover mixed-care living facilities,” wrote one Twitter user. ”Curing cancer is completely irrelevant if that cure is locked away within the current healthcare system.”But some defended Mr Biden and said his vow was "obviously personal for him" and "clearly aspirational".Journalist Sam Stein tweeted: "There’s plenty to go after Biden about. But his pledge/promise to cure cancer doesn't strike me as one of them."Some polls have put Mr Biden as favourite to oust Donald Trump from the White House, with recent Quinnipiac surveys suggesting the Democrat could beat the president by as much as 13 per cent.
