06/18/2018 05:37 PM Americans own 40 percent of world's firearms: study
Americans make up only four percent of the global population but they own 40 percent of the world's firearms, a new study said Monday. There are more than one billion firearms in the world but 85 percent of those are in the hands of civilians, with the remainder held by law enforcement and the military, according to the Small Arms Survey. The survey, produced by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, says it bases its estimates based on multiple sources, including civilian firearms registration data from 133 countries and territories and survey results in 56 countries.

06/18/2018 05:23 PM Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on Mars
Could a volcanic eruption be the key to unlocking the mysterious geological history of Mars? Back in the 1960s, NASA's Mariner spacecraft discovered an extremely large and unusually soft rock formation. The makeup of the mass, now known as the Medusa Fossae formation, stumped researchers for decades because they were never able to determine how it got there. SEE ALSO: Tiny NASA satellite bound for Mars snaps photo of Earth from thousands of miles away But now, new research seems to answer that question — and maybe many others. More than 3 billion years ago, extreme volcanic eruptions on Mars dropped the huge deposit near the Martian equator, according to the new study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets.

Ojha and his colleagues used gravity data from spacecraft orbiting Mars to measure the formation density. Through this, they were able to determine that the rock was unusually porous, allowing them to rule out other potential compositions like ice. On a basic level, the formation is a bunch of hills and mounds of sedimentary rock but because much of Mars’s history is shrouded in mystery, a finding like this is huge.

The effect of wind erosion on this hill is evident by its streamlined shape.Image: High Resolution Stereo Camera/European Space Agency.Eruptions of the magnitude suggested by the study would also have an enormous impact on the planet's climate as well. A considerable amount of “climate-altering” gases like hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide accompany most volcanic eruptions and would have spit out enough water to cover the red planet in a global ocean, the study says. These findings paint a better picture of what habitability on Mars would look like, as well as the usefulness of gravity surveys. “Future gravity surveys could help distinguish between ice, sediments and igneous rocks in the upper crust of the planet,” co-author and planetary scientist Kevin Lewis explained.

06/18/2018 07:39 PM Former Israeli government minister charged with spying for Iran
A former Israeli government minister, once imprisoned for trying to smuggle drugs, is back behind bars after being charged with spying for archenemy Iran, the country's internal security agency said Monday. The Shin Bet, the Israeli security agency, said Gonen Segev was extradited from Guinea and arrested upon arrival in Israel last month on suspicion of "committing offenses of assisting the enemy in war and spying against the state of Israel." It said Mr Segev, a former energy minister, acted as an agent for Iranian intelligence and relayed information "connected to the energy market and security sites in Israel including buildings and officials in political and security organizations." Lawyers representing Mr Segev issued a statement that did not reject or accept the accusations, only saying that the indictment "portrays a different picture" than what the Shin Bet says. Mr Segev, who served in the Cabinet under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in the mid-1990s, was arrested in 2004 for attempting to smuggle 32,000 Ecstasy tablets from the Netherlands to Israel using an expired diplomatic passport.

The Shin Bet said Mr Segev met with his operators twice in Iran, and also met with Iranian agents in hotels and apartments around the world. Mr Segev was given a "secret communications system to encrypt messages" with his operators. The statement said that Mr Segev maintained connections with Israeli civilians who had ties to the country's security and foreign relations. It said he acted to connect them with Iranian agents who posed as businessmen. Israel and Iran are bitter enemies, and the allegations against Mr Segev are extremely grave. Israel considers Iran to be its biggest threat, citing Iranian calls for Israel's destruction, Iran's support for hostile militant groups like Hezbollah and its development of long-range missiles.

06/18/2018 11:19 PM Syrian, Iraqi forces say U.S. bombs military border positions, U.S. denies
By Angus McDowall BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian state media said on Monday that U.S.-led coalition aircraft had bombed a Syrian army position near the Iraqi border, causing deaths and injuries, but the U.S. military denied it was responsible. The attack took place in al-Harra, southeast of the town of Albu Kamal, state news agency SANA said, citing a military source. A commander in the alliance fighting alongside Damascus told Reuters that drones that were "probably American" had bombed the positions of Iraqi factions between Albu Kamal and Tanf, as well as Syrian military positions.
06/19/2018 11:54 AM Malaysia murder case linked to Najib 'may be re-opened'
A probe into the sensational murder of a young woman linked to Malaysia's ousted leader could be re-opened, a lawyer said Tuesday, after a meeting between the victim's father and the attorney-general. Altantuya Shaariibuu was shot dead and her body blown up with military-grade plastic explosives near Kuala Lumpur in 2006. The Mongolian's murder was the most shocking aspect in a scandal involving allegations that an associate of recently ousted premier Najib Razak arranged huge kickbacks for the purchase of French submarines in 2002.

06/19/2018 12:10 AM Screaming children heard crying for parents at US detention centre after being separated at border under Trump policy, in distressing audio recording
As the Trump administration continues to defend its new “zero tolerance” policy on immigration, audio has reportedly revealed the cries of immigrant children hours after they are separated from their families at the US border. The audio reportedly comes from inside a US Customs and Border Protection detention facility, where migrant children are held as their parents face prosecution for crossing the border illegally. Under the Trump administration's new zero tolerance policy, all adults caught crossing the border illegally are required to face criminal charges – a process that inevitably separates them from any children they bring with them.

06/18/2018 03:51 PM Texas sheriff deputy charged for child abuse after allegedly blackmailing undocumented mother with deportation
A Texas sheriff’s deputy has been accused of sexually assaulting an undocumented immigrant’s child, and blackmailing the mother with potential deportation to keep her quiet about the attacks. Jose Nunez, 47, is being held on charges of “super aggravated sexual assault” after the mother sought help at a fire department for her 4-year-old child, who had reportedly been crying out in pain. “The details of the case are quite frankly heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time,” Javier Salazar, the Bexar County Sheriff, said during a press conference announcing the charges and circumstances.

According to an order issued on Monday, U.S. District Judge James Otero decided it was unnecessary to hear arguments on the request by Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti to lift a 90-day stay imposed on April 28. In imposing the stay, the judge cited the potential overlap between Daniels' lawsuit and a separate criminal probe by federal prosecutors in Manhattan that he said could result in Cohen's indictment.

06/18/2018 02:04 PM Americans grapple with recognizing facts in news stories: Pew survey
By Angela Moon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Only a quarter of U.S. adults in a recent survey could fully identify factual statements - as opposed to opinion - in news stories, the Pew Research Center found in a study released on Monday. The survey comes amid growing concerns about so-called fake news spread on the internet and social media. Facebook Inc , Alphabet Inc's Google and other tech companies have recently come under scrutiny for failing to promptly tackle the problem of fake news as more Americans consume news on social media platforms.
