  • The recent mass shootings in the US all have one thing in common: misogyny

    Golocal247.com news

    The massacre at Santa Fe high school last week that left 10 people dead – most of them students – seems to have something in common with so many other mass shootings that happen in the US: misogyny. How many more tragedies have to happen before we recognize that misogyny kills? The longer we ignore the toxic masculinity that underlies so many of these crimes, the more violence we’re enabling.

  • 'Alien' asteroid discovered orbiting the wrong way near Jupiter 

    Golocal247.com news

    An "alien" asteroid from another star system has been discovered sharing Jupiter's orbit.  Through a telescope the asteroid look like every other in the solar system save for one crucial difference - it is travelling in the wrong direction. It is the first time an interstellar space rock has been found to be permanently residing in the solar system.  Earlier this year, a tumbling cigar-shaped object named 'Oumuamua', hit the headlines after flying into earth's galactic backyard, but it merely passed through and out again. But the new 1.8 mile wide rock - code-named 2015 BZ509 - appears to be a long-term resident, according to a study in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The first clue that it was not a native of the solar system came from its "retrograde" orbit of the sun, the opposite the direction of travel taken by all the planets and almost every other object in our system. Scientists have concluded it survived by orbiting the sun exactly in step with Jupiter, but in the opposite direction Credit: NASA / ESA Dr Fathi Namouni, from the Cote d'Azur Observatory in France, lead author of the study, said: "How the asteroid came to move in this way while sharing Jupiter's orbit has until now been a mystery. "If 2015 BZ509 were a native of our system, it should have had the same original direction as all of the other planets and asteroids, inherited from the cloud of gas and dust that formed them." Scientists have concluded it survived by orbiting the sun exactly in step with Jupiter, but in the opposite direction. Co-author Dr Helena Morais, from the Estadual Paulista University in Brazil, said: "The close proximity of the stars, aided by the gravitational forces of the planets, help these systems attract, remove, and capture asteroids from one another." Computer simulations suggest that the asteroid made the jump to our solar system 4.5 billion years ago when the sun was part of a tightly packed star cluster. “That was completely unexpected...it means it is an alien to the solar system,” said Dr Namouni. Since asteroids and comets carry organic chemicals and water, the discovery could shed light on the origins of life on Earth, the scientists believe.

    China rebuffed U.S. concerns about its ties with Venezuela on Tuesday after Washington imposed new sanctions on the crisis-stricken oil-producing country following the re-election of its socialist President Nicolas Maduro. Maduro, the 55-year-old successor to late leftist leader Hugo Chavez, hailed his win in Sunday's election as a victory against "imperialism". In response to the vote, U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order restricting Venezuela's ability to liquidate state assets and debt in the United States, the latest in a series of sanctions that seeks to choke off financing for the already cash-strapped government.

China's air force said bombers such as the H-6K had landed and taken off from islands and reefs in the South China Sea as part of training exercises last week. The flights "increase tensions, cause regional instabilities and are not good for maintaining a peaceful, stable and cooperative environment in the East Sea," foreign ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said in a statement, using the Vietnamese name for the South China Sea.

  • Putin's 'unlimited range' nuclear missile crashed after 22 miles, US intelligence sources claim

    Golocal247.com news

    The Kremlin has denied US claims that Russia's nuclear-powered cruise missile with “unlimited” range crashed after only 22 miles.  The weapon was one of a range of “invincible” nuclear arms announced by Vladimir Putin during a speech in March.  “Since its range is unlimited, it can manoeuvre as long as you want,” Mr Putin said. “For now, no one in the world has anything like this.” But sources with direct knowledge of a US intelligence report told CNBC that four tests of the missile between November and February all resulted in crashes.  The longest flight lasted two minutes and covered 22 miles, while shortest ended only four seconds and five miles after launch, they said.  CNN previously quoted a US official as saying the cruise missile had crashed during tests. Mr Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied the reported US intelligence findings when asked on Tuesday.  An Iskander ballistic missile rolls through Red Square during the Victory Day parade on May 9 Credit: Mikhail Svetlov/Getty Images “Listen to the president of Russia Vladimir Putin and believe him,” Mr Peskov said.  After taking off with conventional fuel, the cruise missile is designed to be powered by a small nuclear reactor during flight. Although Mr Putin had said the nuclear unit had successfully powered up and “provided the necessary level of thrust,” US intelligence claimed this component had failed to start.  Kremlin officials allegedly ordered the tests over objections from engineers that the weapon system was not ready.  The US intelligence report did not mention the health or environmental impacts potentially caused by damages to the missile's reactor. We are in Dr. Strangelove: Putin has promised a nuclear-powered nuclear missile with an "unlimited range." "No one in the world has such a thing" pic.twitter.com/hqPwWk9l0n— Alec Luhn (@ASLuhn) March 1, 2018 Vladimir Putin first touted the cruise missile during a sabre-rattling March speech in which he said Russia had developed “invincible” nuclear arms including a glider warhead, hypersonic missile and underwater drone. One of the accompanying computer animations showed warheads raining down on Florida. The “Dagger” hypersonic missiles Mr Putin mentioned were later displayed on the belly of MiG-31 jets roaring over Red Square during the annual Victory Day parade this month.   The new nuclear weapons were designed to overcome US missile defence systems in countries like Poland and Romania, which “violate the strategic balance” between nuclear powers, he argued.  “No one wanted to listen to us. Listen to us now,” Mr Putin said.  The hypersonic missile seen over Red Square during the parade is known as the "Kinzhal," or "Dagger" Credit: Pavel Golovkin/AP Photo The speech raised fears of a Cold War-style arms race, as US president Donald Trump promised this year to expand the US nuclear arsenal to Russia. While the Russian cruise missile does not appear to be ready, the hypersonic glider warhead able to penetrate US defences will be operational by 2020, CNBC quoted US officials as saying.  Russia tested the highly manoeuvrable weapon twice in 2016, they said. A third test launch in 2017 crashed seconds before hitting its target, but Moscow is expected to try again this summer.
