Syrian chemical weapons activity has been seen at Assad regime base used for previous attacks, say Pentagon

Pharma news - June 27, 2017 - 10:14am

A warning from the administration of President Donald Trump that Syria's government will "pay a heavy price" for any future chemical weapons attacks came after it observed similar activities on a base that had allegedly been used previously for sarin gas attacks in April. According to the Pentagon, the activity indicates that the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is actively pursuing preparations at Shayrat airfield to use such weapons in its ongoing civil war that has torn the country apart. The US contends that the Assad regime used chemical weapons two months ago in an attack launched from Shayrat that killed dozens of civilians, prompting swift retribution from American military forces that fired 60 cruise missiles at the base.

Hostages in Philippine town forced to fight, loot, become sex slaves: army

Pharma news - June 27, 2017 - 10:04am

By Kanupriya Kapoor MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - Civilians held hostage by Islamist militants occupying a southern Philippine city have been forced to loot homes, take up arms against government troops and serve as sex slaves for rebel fighters, the army said on Tuesday. Citing accounts of seven residents of Marawi City who either escaped or were rescued, the military said some hostages were forced to convert to Islam, carry wounded fighters to mosques, and marry militants of the Maute group loyal to Islamic State. Some escapees say bodies of residents have been left in the streets, some for weeks, and civilians are distressed by government air strikes and artillery bombardments that have reduced parts of Marawi to rubble.

"This involved specific aircraft in a specific hangar, both of which we know to be associated with chemical weapons use," Davis said, speaking by phone from Washington. Davis added that the worrisome activity dated back to "the past day or two." He did not say how the United States collected its intelligence.

Exclusive: New image confirms Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 design

Pharma news - June 27, 2017 - 9:08am

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 8 inches closer to release with each passing day. We're just over a month away from the phone's official unveiling, which is expected to take place in late August. As expected, the slow stream of leaks has now turned into a raging river, and we know just about everything there is to know about the upcoming new flagship phablet. There are still a few big questions surrounding Samsung's upcoming Note 8 though, and now an exclusive leak from BGR crosses yet another big one off the list.

A recent report from a tried and true source of information surrounding unreleased smartphones painted a near-complete picture of the Galaxy Note 8 last week. According to the leak, the Note 8 will sport a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, a 18.5:9 aspect ratio, 6GB of RAM, an Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, a 3,300 mAh battery, and an updated S Pen stylus. The same post claimed that the phone will retail for close to $1,000 when it's released later this summer.

As for the phone's design, we've known for quite some time now that it'll riff on Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ design from earlier this year. Considering the S8 has the hottest smartphone design the world has ever seen, that's definitely a good thing. We're expecting a new Infinity Display and possibly an even better screen-to-body ratio than the Galaxy S8's class-leading 83%, but the back of the phone is still something of a mystery. At least, it was until now.

BGR has exclusively obtained a 3D CAD drawing of the Galaxy Note 8 based on schematics that came directly from the factory tasked with building the new phone. The image, shown above, answers the last big question we had regarding the phone's design. Unfortunately, it's not the answer we were hoping for.

Reports suggest Samsung wanted to integrate the Galaxy Note 8's fingerprint scanner into the display, as we're expecting on the iPhone 8. Unfortunately, Samsung was unable to get the necessary tech ready for mass production in time, so the company was forced to go with a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.

That's bad enough, but unfortunately things get even worse. As you can see in our exclusive image, the fingerprint scanner is located to the right side of the phone's rear camera. This design has been a big pain point for Galaxy S8 and S8+ users, and yet Samsung is now reusing it on a phone that's even larger than those two models. What's more, the dual-lens camera takes up even more space and pushes the scanner further to the side, making it even more awkward to reach.

A technical explanation for Samsung's decision undoubtedly exists, but we don't yet know what it is. As a result, all we can say is that Samsung is sacrificing the Note 8's user experience to an even greater degree than it did on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, all so that it can ditch the home button on the front of the phone and keep the bezels as narrow as possible.

Samsung is expected to unveil the new Galaxy Note 8 in late August ahead of its release sometime in September.

Salvaged from the Papua New Guinean jungle, a restored World War II Japanese Zero fighter has taken to the skies over the land that gave birth to the once-feared warplane. The aircraft -- emblazoned with tell-tale rising sun symbols -- is one of just a few airworthy Zero fighters left in the world, nearly eight decades after they struck fear into the hearts of Allied pilots. The plane flew near Tokyo this month, watched by businessman and aviation buff Masahide Ishizuka who bought the plane for 350 million yen ($3.1 million) in 2008.

The Queen is getting a massive pay rise and Twitter isn't impressed

Pharma news - June 27, 2017 - 4:39am

At 91, the Queen might be well beyond her pension age, but that hasn't stopped her from getting a massive pay rise.  SEE ALSO: Baby survives Grenfell, or not: Facebook’s fake news problem continues apace A record-breaking performance by the Crown Estate, which owns residential properties, commercial offices, businesses, and land across Britain, means the Queen will get an 8% increase in income from public funds.  The Sovereign Grant, which funds the monarch's household, official travel, and upkeep of palaces, will increase from £76 million ($97 million) in 2017-18 to £82.2 million ($104.9 million) next April.  Not bad, huh? It's a £6 million pay rise.  Now, before the French revolutionary in you starts ranting about royal privilege and taxpayers' money, it has to be reiterated that the Queen's funding is based on the profits of the Crown Estate, whose profits rose by £24 million to reach a new high of £328.8 million.  Sir Alan Reid, whose title is "Keeper of the Privy Purse," defended the Queen, claiming she represents "excellent value for money."  "When you look at these accounts, the bottom line is the Sovereign Grant last year equated to 65p per person, per annum, in the United Kingdom. That's the price of a first class stamp," he said.  Also, Queen's pay rise will take place as refurbishment is taking place at Buckingham Palace, costing £369 million. However, people on Twitter weren't happy, to say the least, about the new funding, linking it to the Grenfell Tower fire: Glad we can find more taxpayer money to fix up Buckingham Palace while hundreds of tower blocks are dangerous.
