In December 2016, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said it expected Iran’s economic growth to reach as high as 6.6 percent for the Persian calendar year that ends on 20 March 2017. It emphasized that the higher production and exports of oil after the removal of sanctions and exports would be particularly instrumental in boosting Iran’s economic growth that was in recession last year. A country with a population of around 80 million, Iran is currently one of the biggest economies of the Middle East and has a gross domestic production (GDP) of around $380 billion. The main driving force of Iran’s economic growth is exports of oil. The country is currently exporting close to 2.3 million barrels per day (mb/d) of oil and analysts are already expecting the volume to increase to as high as 2.5 mb/d. Based on the budget bill for the next Iranian calendar year, the country expects to sell its oil at around $50 dollars per barrel thus expecting its annual oil revenues to be around $33 billion.

Syrian army soldiers march through the streets in the Ansari neighborhood, east Aleppo, Syria, Friday, Dec 23, 2016. (SANA via AP) (ANALYSIS) When a magician is showing you a magic trick with his or her right hand, you should always watch what the left hand is doing. When it comes to times of war, one should always be skeptical of a government beating the war drum against another government or entity. Ask yourself: Why now, why this entity, and what is at stake? A good example of this can be seen in Africa. Since 1998, close to 6 million people have been killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo due to fighting over mineral resources, many of which are used in cell phones around the world. This barely receives a mention in the corporate news. In contrast, we were told that Libya, the country with the highest standard of living out of any country in Africa , needed to be bombed in a “humanitarian intervention” to prevent a massacre that may or may not have ever occurred.

Soros also uses his company Open Society Foundations to funnel money into Media Matters, which directly contributes to mainstream media outlets such as NBC and the New York Times ( source ). Trump has called out mainstream news outlets numerous times for spreadingfake news,” making his appointment of Mnuchin even more perplexing. Soros is heavily tied to the Black Lives Matter movement and is even linked to the Women’s March, both of which are heavy anti-Trump political movements. Although these events may seem well-intended, they are tricking people into thinking they’re fighting for equality. Many of these movements are created by members of the elite like Soros so they can make a profit by distracting us and creating conflict. To read more about the elite’s involvement in these events, specifically Soros’, you can read our article here .

Together, those numbers help the Concept_One sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.6 seconds to go with a top speed of 221 mph. If there’s truth to Mikac’s comments, we can expect the follow-up model to eclipse those numbers. It will likely cost more than the $1.2 million Rimac was asking per unit of the eight-piece Concept_One and the $1.6 million price tag of the $1.6 million Concept_One S. We’ll let your imaginations take it from here. In the meantime, deliveries of the $1.6 million Concept_One are expected to begin in March with more owners getting theirs shortly thereafter. According to Mikac, most of the available Concept_One supercars are already pre-sold and that the first car is already expected to make its way to its American owner in the coming days.

Of course, the Brute’s main attribute is its injection-molded, composite cargo bed. The Wrangler’s frame is actually lengthened by several inches, giving enough room for the cargo bed and the ability to store a full-size spare tire between the frame rails. Sadly the Brute’s days are numbered. Jeep is mere months away from debuting the next-generation Wrangler, dubbed the JL. As most Jeep enthusiasts know, the Wrangler JL will be offered in a pickup version, dubbed the JT. With Jeep soon making its own Wrangler pickup, AEV will end production of the Wrangler JK Brute. AEV’s order books are closing March 31, so those wanting a piece of Jeep history better act fast. The Brute Double Cab starts at $41,665, not including the donor Jeep, which can range from $30,000 to $50,000. Pricing can well exceed the $100,000 mark with all the available add-ons selected.

An Israeli court on Tuesday sentenced Elor Azaria to 18 months in prison, one-year probation and a demotion of his military rank, a month after the Israeli soldier was found guilty of manslaughter. Azaria shot and killed Abd al-Fattah al-Sharif in March after al-Sharif had already been shot and injured following an alleged attempted stabbing attack in Hebron. Following the court’s sentencing, Azaria’s defense vowed to appeal the ruling, while several high-ranking Israeli politicians called for a pardon in his case. The main evidence in the case was footage caught on camera by Imad Abu Shamsiya , a Palestinian resident of Hebron who had been provided a camera by Human Rights Defenders specifically to document instances such as the shooting and other human rights violations in Hebron. Abu Shamsiya told Mondoweiss he is grateful he was around to film the incident, because without the camera footage he feels certain Azaria would never have been taken to court, let alone serve time in prison.

Joel SartoreNational Geographic Fellow, 25-year contributor to National Geographic magazine, and acclaimed photographer and author—is acutely aware of this devastating reality and is passionate about protecting our planet’s animals. He has made it his life’s work to raise awareness and provoke action—which is why he puts us eye to eye, wet nose to nose, and face to face with the fuzzy and feathered, soaring and slithering, with the magnificent and diverse life all around us. “We owe it to these animals, as they struggle for survival on a human-dominated planet, to look them in the eye,” agrees bestselling author David Quammen. “Joel Sartore’s awestruck and awe-inspiring photos make that an experience of deep heart and beauty.” THE PHOTO ARK: One Man’s Quest to Document the World’s Animals (National Geographic; on sale March 7, 2017; ISBN 978-1-4262-1777-7; 400 pages; $35) is founded on Sartore’s belief that to know Earth’s animals is to love them, and in the 400 pages and 600 gorgeous photographs of THE PHOTO ARK you will lose your heart again and again.

The EV will be built in Germany and will be “based upon the best electric vehicle platform in the world”, though the company has not yet revealed any of the technology underpinning the vehicle. Three teaser images preview the car’s design. The side profile is a low wedge containing four-doors, while the front end boasts an angular, pointed nose. At the back, a large horizontal taillight spans the width of the vehicle, underneath two distinctive floating buttresses. More details and pictures are promised over the coming months, though the Elextra wont be present at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Speaking to Auto Express, the company said the car will not be revealed until next year at the earliest. What do you think of the Elextra? Let us know in the comments! James Brodie
