By Valerie Volcovici and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt on Thursday rejected a litany of ethics complaints against him as lies intended to derail President Donald Trump's agenda, and put much of the blame for any agency missteps on his staff. During two tense congressional hearings, Pruitt faced tough questions from Democrats and even some fellow Republicans in marathon high-stakes testimony as he seeks to avoid becoming the latest in a long list of Cabinet members and senior White House officials to have either been fired by Trump or quit.

04/25/2018 01:39 PM Boeing reports jump in 1Q profits, lifts 2018 forecast
Boeing reported a surge in first-quarter profits on Wednesday and lifted its full-year earnings forecast following a strong performance in commercial aviation and defense programs. The results again reflect broad health in commercial aviation as the airline industry enjoys a more stable financial period and as flying becomes much more common in the Middle East, Asia and other developing regions. A big player in China, Boeing has often been seen as vulnerable to a trade war between the United States and China, a possibility that topped Wall Street's list of worries earlier this month but has receded of late amid softer rhetoric between Washington and Beijing.

04/26/2018 09:23 PM Incredible new photo shows Mars bathed in dramatic light
A beautiful new photo shows off Mars in a dramatic new light. The European Space Agency's (ESA) ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter just beamed home the amazing new image from April 15. The photo was taken by the satellite's Colour and Stereo Surface Imaging System (CaSSIS) right after the satellite moved into a new orbit about 400 kilometers above the world's surface. The lighting is what makes it really special. SEE ALSO: A new experiment could sniff out signs of alien life on Mars and beyond “We were really pleased to see how good this picture was, given the lighting conditions,” Antoine Pommerol, a member of the science team, said in a statement. You can see the Korolev Crater covered with ice in the planet's northern hemisphere, according to the ESA. These kinds of photos allow scientists to get a bird's eye view of Mars' water and carbon dioxide cycles, helping them understand exactly what's going on with the planet's geology. The satellite itself, which arrived at Mars in 2016, is designed to sniff out gases like methane that might be indications of biology or geology on the red planet. A (very long) photo of Mars.Image: ESA/Roscosmos/CaSSISScientists should be able to parse out where those trace gases come from as the mission continues. “We are excited to finally be starting collecting data at Mars with this phenomenal spacecraft,” Håkan Svedhem, the satellite's project scientist, said in the statement. “The test images we have seen so far certainly set the bar high.” The satellite is part of the ExoMars mission, which is focused on helping ESA piece together the history of Mars and figuring out if life exists or has ever existed there. In 2020, the ESA is expected to launch an ExoMars lander and rover that will investigate possible life on Mars from the surface. The 2016 mission also included a lander component, but it didn't quite go as planned: The ESA lost signal with the Schiaparelli lander as it reached the surface of Mars, and scientists now think the test lander was lost. However, the agency claims to have gathered important data from the loss of the lander, and plans to correct any previous mistakes when trying to land in 2020.

04/25/2018 10:44 PM Acting Armenia leader suggests election as protests roll on
By Margarita Antidze and Hasmik Mkrtchyan YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armenia's acting prime minister on Wednesday suggested calling a parliamentary election as tens of thousands staged a new protest in the capital against the ruling elite. Two weeks of demonstrations looked to have peaked on Monday when Serzh Sarksyan quit as prime minister. Although the protests have been peaceful, the upheaval has threatened to destabilize Armenia, an ally of Russia, in a volatile region riven by its decades-long, low-level conflict with neighboring Azerbaijan.
04/26/2018 03:59 PM Man who was told rare gold coin was fake set to become millionaire after experts realise it is genuine
A man who was told a gold coin in his possession was a fake is set to become a millionaire after experts realised it was the real deal. The collector, who wished to remain anonymous, was convinced his coin was a fraudulent replica of a special $5 coin produced by the San Francisco Mint at the height of the California Gold Rush in 1854. Coin dealers agreed with him, since only three out of the 268 Liberty Head Half Eagles made were known to have survived into modern times.

04/26/2018 05:57 AM Some antidepressants may be linked to dementia
Long-term use of certain anti-depressants have been linked to dementia in a large British study, researchers said Thursday, though they could not definitively conclude that the drugs were the cause. The study in more than 300,000 people in Britain found that those diagnosed with dementia were almost a third more likely to have been prescribed so-called anticholinergic medicines to treat depression and certain bladder conditions between four and 20 years earlier. "What we don't know for sure is whether the medication is the cause" of the dementia, said George Savva from the University of East Anglia's School of Health Science.

04/25/2018 09:29 PM Would Israel Attack S-300 Air Defenses in Syria?
There is no shortage of reasons to be concerned about the entangled drama unfolding in Syria, as Russia maneuvers on a shifting landscape that could see Israel and Iran collide in a direct confrontation. Commentary in The Wall Street Journal on Monday urged caution on the part of Moscow, arguing that Russia has already nudged the regional arch-enemies closer to war. A recent Israeli strike on a base in Syria which killed seven Iranians, including four Quds Force officers, might have been swept under the rug by Iran, according to the author Dennis Ross, but Russia’s decision to call out Israel for the strike has forced Iran’s hand, increasing the likelihood of retaliation to save face.
04/25/2018 08:48 PM Eurofighter doubts U.S. will use nuclear certification to tilt German jets bid
By Andrea Shalal BERLIN (Reuters) - The head of Eurofighter on Wednesday said he did not expect the United States to slow certification of the European fighter's ability to carry nuclear weapons as a way to influence a competition to replace Germany's aging 90 Tornado jets. The Eurofighter is a joint project between British defense group BAE, European airplane maker Airbus and Italy's Leonardo. Airbus and Eurofighter on Tuesday submitted six binders of information to the German defense ministry, which has said it will prioritize a European fighter, but has also asked for information about the Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jet and Boeing Co's F-15E and F/A-18E/F jets.

04/25/2018 09:21 AM Russian envoy plays down tensions with Israel over Syria strikes
Russia's ambassador to Israel on Wednesday played down tensions between the countries over Israeli attacks in Syria, saying they were not the reason for Moscow's proposed supply of an advanced air defense system to Damascus. Since intervening in Syria's civil war on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad in 2015, Russia has generally turned a blind eye to Israeli air strikes there against suspected arms transfers and deployments by his Iranian and Hezbollah allies.
