Donald Trump's lawyer says President's right to pardon himself 'cannot be dismissed'

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 11:10am

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer has taken to the airwaves to defend the President’s claim that he has the power to pardon himself from a crime. “Clearly the constitution does vest a plenary pardon power within the presidency,” attorney Jay Sekulow told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, adding that it was not something the White House is considering currently. “Whether it applies to the president himself I think ultimately would be a matter for the court to decide, if it were ever to come into existence,” he continued.

Latest Republican health bill 'a porkfest, a monstrosity', Rand Paul says

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 10:58am

Rand Paul has helped to block Republican efforts to introduce a new health bill. Rand Paul, one of the conservative senators who has helped to hold up Republican healthcare reform, on Sunday derided the current Senate bill as a “monstrosity” and a “porkfest” and said he would not vote for it to proceed to debate this week. With Donald Trump telling senators to stay in Washington until they have a replacement for Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA), Mitch McConnell is reportedly looking to hold a vote to proceed to debate as early as Tuesday.

Don't interfere in Turkish affairs, Erdogan tells Germany

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 9:44am

Germany has no right to interfere in Turkey's domestic affairs, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday, his latest broadside in a blistering row sparked by the waves of arrests under the current state of emergency. Several German nationals are among those being held and Berlin has warned its citizens that their safety cannot be guaranteed in Turkey and that consular access is not assured in case of arrest. Throwing away any pretence at diplomatic nuance, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel had Thursday also warned German firms against investment in Turkey and spoke of an "overhaul" of the entire relationship.

Russia to blame for 'hot war' in Ukraine: U.S. special envoy

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 9:42am

By Natalia Zinets and Matthias Williams KIEV (Reuters) - Russian aggression is to blame for violence in eastern Ukraine, where people are dying in what should be seen as a "hot war" rather than a "frozen conflict", the U.S. special envoy to the Ukraine peace talks said on a visit to Ukraine on Sunday. Kurt Volker, a former U.S. ambassador to NATO, was appointed to his current role on July 7 to help resolve the conflict between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists, which has killed more than 10,000 people since 2014. Washington cites the conflict as a key obstacle to better relations with Russia.

The navy said the pair of wild elephants were brought ashore after a "mammoth effort" involving navy divers, ropes and a flotilla of boats to tow them back to shallow waters. Photos showed the elephants in distress, barely keeping their trunks above water in the deep seas about one kilometre off the coast of Sri Lanka.

Afghanistan's Shiites mark anniversary of deadly attack

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 9:07am

The site west of Kabul is the last resting place for victims of a deadly suicide bombing on July 23 last year -- the first claimed by the Islamic State group in the heart of Kabul against Afghanistan's Shiite Muslim Hazara ethnic minority. The line from Turkmenistan to Kabul, capital of energy-starved Afghanistan, bypasses the province of Bamiyan, a Hazara stronghold. For Hazara leaders the route is a further sign of discrimination against their community and their province, one of the least developed in Afghanistan.

NASA is uploading hundreds of rare films from its archives to YouTube, and here are the best ones

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 8:00am

We live in a world where delivering supplies to a space station orbiting our planet is handled by a tech startup, but expertise in flight hasn't always been so easy. NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center has an incredible wealth of video footage showcasing the many trials, successes, and failures of the United States' various military and scientific programs, and the group has decided to make it all available to the world via YouTube. The videos, which range in age from a few months to over fifty years, are a glorious look at the steady progress of flight engineering, and we've collected some of the best for you to enjoy.

Is that a UFO? Nope, it's a very early prototype of the wingless M2-F1.

Testing a lunar lander on Earth is tricky business, but NASA test pilots make it look easy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwdClhh1HwE

Drones aren't a new concept to NASA. The agency has been flying remotely piloted aircraft for decades, like this Hyper III from 1969.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SncLDXTiREY

Ever wonder what kind of damage a world record-breaking flight can do to an aircraft? This X-15A-2 set a new high mark by achieving mach 6.7, and when it landed it looked like it had been through a war.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSxFe93pYCA

A plane that carries... planes?! That's what the Super Guppy does, and it looks very odd while doing it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCLCq_ggCL4

Flying saucers really do exist, as long as you count the unmanned X-45A.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrhJ3vFD3fE

The SR-71 is one of the US Air Force's most iconic aircraft of all time, and NASA borrowed a pair of them to conduct high-altitude research because of their amazing capabilities.

Still hungry for more? Head over to NASA's YouTube portal to check out the huge archive for yourself.

Japanese PM Abe's support slides again before parliament appearance

Pharma news - July 23, 2017 - 7:03am

By Linda Sieg TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's support slid 10 points to 26 percent in a poll published on Sunday, a day before Abe will be grilled in parliament over a suspected scandal that is cutting his ratings to the lowest since taking office in 2012. The July 22-23 Mainichi newspaper poll also showed that 56 percent of respondents did not back Abe's government, a 12 point rise from a previous survey in June. The precipitous drop in support does not immediately threaten Abe's job, but clouds the outlook for the premier.
