The ice floating in the Arctic Ocean grows and shrinks on a seasonal cycle, reaching its largest size in March and its smallest at the end of the summer melt in September. This year's Arctic maximum spanned 5.57 million square miles (14.42 million square kilometers). That is 37,000 square miles below the previous record low in 2015. When scientists take account of the average sea ice extent for 1981-2010, this year's ice cover is 471,000 square miles smaller. The Arctic sea ice maximum has dropped by an average of 2.8 percent per decade since 1979, NASA said. "We started from a low September minimum extent," said Walt Meier, a sea ice scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. "There was a lot of open ocean water and we saw periods of very slow ice growth in late October and into November, because the water had a lot of accumulated heat that had to be dissipated before ice could grow," he added.

Judges at the International Criminal Court Wednesday sentenced former Congolese vice president Jean-Pierre Bemba to an additional year in prison and fined him $324,000 for bribing witnesses during his earlier trial on war crimes. Four other members of Bemba's legal team also were sentenced by The Hague-based court. They were found guilty back in October of bribing and otherwise influencing 14 defense witnesses to try to tilt the outcome of the first trial, which led to a March 2016 conviction for war crimes and crimes against humanity. This was the ICC's first case dealing with witness tampering. Bemba's lawyer, Aime Kilolo, was given a two-and-a-half-year suspended sentence as well as a $32,000 fine for his involvement. Bemba is currently serving an 18-year term in connection with widespread abuses by his forces in the neighboring Central African Republic in 2002 and 2003.

With most racing slicks, if you push too hard and overheat the tire, backing off for a few corners lets them cool down, and everything goes back to normal. But when the F1 Pirellis of the past few years overheat, they're ruined. (It's possible this is caused by a particular chemical used in the manufacturing process that makes the tire compound extrudable.) That won't be the case this year; now the tires will suffer little to no drop-off or degradation, so expect a lot of one-stop strategies, at least for the first few races.

An updated budget analysis from the Congressional Budget Office could give more fodder to the bill’s critics. The CBO estimated last week that the plan will result in 14 million more Americans going uninsured next year. The caucus’ members who oppose the legislation are planning a press conference Wednesday to showcase their numbers. But they’re not the only lawmakers that leadership is worried about losing. A handful of moderate and mainstream Republicans have rejected the proposal as well. Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen says she wont back the measure because her district has the greatest number of Obamacare beneficiaries in the country. New Jersey Rep. Leonard Lance has also come out against the bill. Democrats are largely steering clear of the Republican infighting, but former Vice President Joe Biden returned to the Capitol Wednesday to rally Democratic members against the GOP efforts.

By Joe Sheppard Boston public schools have replaced the familiar world maps they use in classes with a new projection that more accurately represents the world's landmasses. For more than 400 years, the standard representation of the world has been illustrated by the Mercator Projection. It was drawn up by Flemish geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator in 1569 and features straight lines across the oceans. These lines were useful at the time when navigators had only a compass to guide them. But the projection shows lands in the Northern Hemisphere as larger than they are in reality. For example, the map represents Greenland as being roughly the same size as Africa, when it is in fact 14 times smaller, and South America looks as if it is the same size of Europe, when it is nearly twice as large. The Gall-Peters projection which shows land masses in their correct proportions by area.

Although Eric Musselman was a hot commodity on the coaching carousel, Nevada ensured the basketball head coach will remain with the program for the foreseeable future. According to Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union-Tribune , the program has offered Musselman a significant raise to stay with the Wolfpack. His wife confirmed to KOLO 8 News that the coach isn't going anywhere. The 52-year-old just completed his second season with Nevada. After inheriting a team that won just nine games in 2014-15, he led the squad to a 24-14 record in his first year. This season was even better as the squad went 28-7 with its first NCAA tournament appearance in 10 years. While he reportedly interviewed twice for the job opening at California, per KOLO 8, Nevada clearly didn't want to let him go. "We're doing everything we can to make sure Muss stays with us and stays happy here," Nevada athletic director Doug Knuth said Monday, per Chris Murray of the Reno Gazette-Journal .
