The U.S. military has poisoned and polluted some of the most beautiful spots in the United States and around the world. The unsurpassed beauty of Ireland is not immune. And then there is the blowback. By participating in counterproductive wars that generate international terrorism, Ireland makes itself a target. When Spain became a target it pulled out of the war on Iraq, making itself safer. When Britain and France became targets, they doubled down on their own participation in terrorism-too-large-to-carry-that-name, generating more blowback and deepening the vicious cycle of violence. Which path would Ireland choose? We cannot know. But we do know that it would be wisest for Ireland to pull out of its criminal participation in the barbaric institution of war before the war comes home. Sign a petition here .

Atletico remain third in the standings although Sevilla can move level with them on 68 points in the last automatic Champions League spot if they beat Celta Vigo on Thursday. Villarreal are fifth on 60 points and are the only team to beat Atletico home and away this campaign. Tony Adams saw his wretched start to management in Spain continue as his Granada side edged closer towards relegation from La Liga with a 2-0 defeat at home to Malaga, their third straight defeat under the former England defender. Former Barcelona forward Sandro Ramirez continued his impressive first season with Malaga by scoring twice, at the start and the end of the second half, taking his tally to 12 league goals in 24 starts. Ramirez cracked in the opener in the 47th minute from outside the box when Granada failed to clear their lines, then prompted a mass walk-out by forlorn home fans in the Nuevo Los Carmenes stadium by arrowing into the far corner in the 91st.

LONDON: The central role that Diego Costa played in Chelsea's 4-2 win over Southampton on Tuesday suggests the Premier League leaders are going into the season's climax firing on all cylinders again. Costa broke a run of five league games without a goal as he scored twice in the second half against the Saints, racking up his 50th and 51st Premier League strikes for the Londoners. The combative Spain striker also created the opener when he cleverly dragged a pass back into the path of Eden Hazard to put Chelsea 1-0 up in the fifth minute. It was the sharpest performance in several weeks from Costa who started this season strongly and scored 13 times in the league before Christmas but who had only found the net four times since then, until he claimed his brace on Tuesday. The slump in Costa's form coincided with speculation at the start of 2017 that the often tempestuous striker was on the verge of signing a lucrative contract with a club in China's burgeoning Super League.

The Street 750 had a hard time when it launched. The press found a lot to nitpick, and dyed in the wool Harley fans bemoaned its liquid cooling and smaller-than-a-Sportster engine. But you know who wasn't complaining? The buyers. Harley-Davidson have already sold 35,000 Street 750s worldwide, and it's been the leading competitive cruiser' in the US for two years running. The Street has successfully reeled in a broader audience—one with tighter budgets and less affinity to the brand. Harley’s now swinging for the fences again with a new model—the Street Rod XG750A. And if you're not a fan of the original, don't fret: this one's pretty much all-new. Full disclosure: I have no opinion of the first-gen Street because I've never ridden it. I was supposed to put some miles on one before this launch, but things just didn't pan out in time. So I flew to Marbella, Spain, with an open mind and no preconceived ideas about the motorcycle I was there to report on.

The Spanish police arrested two men reportedly suspected of having "jihadist" links, in the Segovian towns of El Espinar and Los Angeles de San Rafael, Tuesday, following a round of inspections throughout Spain to track down individuals connected to alleged terroristic operations. A Spanish national and a Moroccan citizen, aged 41 and 49 respectively were taken into custody for police to determine the extent of their involvement with an Egyptian man arrested last Saturday because of his alleged association to "jihadist" groups. The footage shows police officers detaining one of the men and searching his house. Several papers and a laptop were analysed at the scene, while other possible evidence was taken outside of the house for further inspection.

A Saudi novelist has won the International Prize for Arabic Fiction, becoming the third author in 10 years from the kingdom to grab the Arab world's most prestigious literary award. Mohammed Hasan Alwan won for his novel "A Small Death", which is a fictionalised account of the life of a Sufi scholar and philosopher, Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi, from his birth in Muslim Spain in the 12th century until his death in Damascus. The novel follows Ibn Arabi's mystic Sufi experience and heroic travels from Andalusia to Azerbaijan, via Morocco, Egypt, the Hijaz in today's western Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq and Turkey, according to an abstract posted on the prize website. "Of a sensitive and anxious nature, Muhyiddin struggles with inner turmoil throughout the course of his travels," the abstract said. Though "90 percent of the novel is fiction," Alwan said after receiving the award "I felt the pain while writing it.

Humans discard a trillion single-use plastic bags every year. If you were a wax worm, this statistic would make you drool. The caterpillar loves to eat them. From Atlas Obscura : Frederica Bertocchini, a biologist at the Institute of Biomedicine and Biotechnology in Spain, noticed some wax worms had managed to eat their way through the plastic bags they were being kept in. While other organisms can take weeks or months to break down even the smallest amount of plastic, the wax worm can get through more—in a far shorter period of time. The researchers let 100 wax worms chow down on a plastic grocery bag, and after just 12 hours they’d eaten about 4 percent of the bag, according to findings published Monday in the journal Current Biology. That may not sound like much, but that’s a vast improvement over fungi, which werent able to break down a noticeable amount of polyethylene after six months. Image of wax worm: skeeze/Pixabay

21st Century Wire says... Craig Murray On Radio 4 this morning [24th April 2017] Defence Secretary Michael Fallon argued not just for Trident missiles, but for first use of nuclear weapons and “pre-emptive nuclear war”. There was no misunderstanding or circumstance – he was queried very specifically on the exact point. Not only do the Tories support having weapons of mass destruction, they support using them when none have been used against us. The whole discussion is of course a fantasy as there is no danger whatsoever of a major attack on the UK by any foreign power. Russia has no plans to attack the UK, has never had any plans to attack the UK, and anyway has an economy the size of the Spanish economy. Mind you, the Tories have also been fantasising about war with Spain recentlyThere is no sensible justification for Trident. What North Korea shows is that nuclear weapons are no deterrent against other countries developing them.

MOST scientific research follows a logical progression, with one experiment following up on the findings of another. Every now and then, however, serendipity plays a part. Such is the case with a paper just published in Current Biology , which reveals to the world a moth that is capable of chewing up plastic. The experiment behind the paper was inspired when Federica Bertocchini, an amateur beekeeper who is also a biologist at Cantabria University, in Spain, was looking at some of the honeycombs in her hives and noticed caterpillars chewing holes through the beeswax and lapping up the honey. Such pests are not uncommon, so to be certain of what she was dealing with, she collected some of the caterpillars and took them home in a plastic shopping bag for subsequent examination. She assumed the larvae would be unable to escape from this bag, but she was wrong.
