As many as 13 new discoveries were made in onland and 10 in offshore wells. "A total of 100 exploratory wells were drilled which is higher by 9 per cent as compared to 92 wells drilled in the previous year 2015-16. Of these, 37 wells proved hydrocarbon bearing registering success ratio of 37 per cent," he said. IEA in a report today said oil discoveries declined to 2.4 billion barrels in 2016, compared with an average of 9 billion barrels per year over the past 15 years. Also, the number of projects that received a final investment decision dropped to the lowest level since the 1940s. "This sharp slowdown in activity in the conventional oil sector was the result of reduced investment spending driven by low oil prices," IEA said. However, ONGC continued to spend more to help achieve Prime Minister Narendra Modi's target of reducing import dependence by 10 per cent by 2022.

The Pope could simply be referring to the brothers and sisters we have residing on this planet, though his question seems to be addressing extraterrestrial (ET) life and how we'd treat them. This wouldn't be the first time the Vatican has hinted at the existence of ETs, and Pope Francis himself has spoken about beings of the universe. You can read more about the link between the Vatican and ETs here and here . The Pope goes on to speak of solidarity and how we need to achieve it. We cannot just look at it in terms of social responsibility, but rather as the basis and the underlying framework for politics, economics, and our everyday interactions. Would there even be a need for a singular government if solidarity existed? The Pope continues to say that through true solidarity, we could actually overcome our disposable attitudes toward food, the environment, and each other.

Israel's persistent attempts to expand its illegal settlement enterprise are a blatant mockery of the global rule of law and international norms. Clearly, such an announcement is part of the Israeli government's plans to annex all of Jerusalem, to erase the Palestinian presence in the city, and to destroy the territorial and demographic contiguity of the West Bank (including East Jerusalem),” she said. Ashrawi said the decision attempts to pre-empt the upcoming visit of President Mahmoud Abbas to Washington and his planned meeting with his US counterpart Donald Trump. It is evident that Israel is rushing to create facts on the ground before the Abbas-Trump meeting, planned for May 3, she said. “The two-state solution is a longstanding policy of the American administration, and Israel should not be given a free hand to subvert U.S. and international efforts to achieve this solution,” stressed the PLO official.

Typography: Exploring the Soft World of 3d with Smooth Alphabet abduzeedo Apr 27, 2017 Smooth Alphabet is a typography project created and shared by Jose Carlos on his Behance profile. As the title suggests, it's about it's all about a 36 letter alphabet done in 3D with very smooth forms. The most fascinating thing besides the typography design itself, is the fact that Jose created a letter per day. In addition to that, it wasn't the first time he challenged himself to achieve that feat, it's actually the 4th edition of this personal challenge. I have to say, I struggle to post a photo a day, and it only requires me to snap a photo. Imagine creating a 3D artwork every day. That is one of the reasons to feature his work here on ABDZ. Jose Carlos is a designer and digital artist from San Jose, Costa Rica. His focus is on Digital Art, Art Direction, Cartooning, but of course there's a lot of 3D work on his portfolio.

Referring to the increased tensions between Washington and Pyongyang on Thursday, China said it approves of a recent statement by the Trump administration which said the White House is still open to negotiations to achieve stability and peaceful denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. When asked about such statements, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Beijing had noted that many US officials had recently made similar remarks. We have noted these expressions, and have noted the message conveyed in these expressions hoping to resolve the Korean nuclear issue peacefully through dialogue and consultation, he said. We believe this message is positive and should be affirmed. Earlier this week, China urged restraint from all sides of the conflict during a call with US President Donald Trump, whose administration continues to state that “all options are on the table” when it comes to North Korea.

Since 1955, scientists have repeatedly tackled the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam-Tsingou (FPUT) problem, which found that certain nonlinear systems do not disperse their energy, but rather return to their initial excited states. The challenge within the FPUT problem was that the scientists expected the system to achieve a relaxed state, possibly equilibrium, but instead it never relaxed. Numerous papers have narrowed the focus of the problem, finding that weak nonlinear systems can reach a type of equilibrium. But the question of strongly nonlinear systems reaching full equilibrium has remained a mystery. Now, a discovery reported in the journal Physical Review E finds that such a system can reach equilibrium, provided certain conditions are met. That is a big deal, says Surajit Sen, a physics professor at the University at Buffalo and a coauthor of the paper, because in a very convoluted way, it confirms what [Enrico] Fermi had thought probably should happen.

What then is the pathway to a solution? Moshé argues that the only agent for change is the Israeli-Jewish (Hebrew) working class: “... the only social force able directly to achieve this overthrow [of Zionism] is internal: the Israeli masses, primarily the Hebrew working class.” The Israeli-Jewish working class must be tempted into abandoning the advantages that it presently enjoys, or perceives that it enjoys, in a Zionist state based on Jewish supremacy. How is this to be achieved? By granting it the right to form either a separate Hebrew state or, hopefully, it will be enticed to join a wider socialist federation of the Middle East. This is where Moshé and I part company. My initial response is that of Martin Luther King when remonstrating with white clergymen, who argued that he should have kept quiet over segregation and racism, allowing the law to take its course.

Endowed with a political strategy of playing up AQAP's role as champion of Sunni sectarian interests against those Yemenis whom they wrongly call Shia, AQAP controlled a large swath of territory across southern Yemen, with the port of Mukalla as their headquarters. And even though the Saudi coalition recaptured the territory, they maintain a strong political presence there. AQAP will certainly emerge from the disastrous war in Yemen as the strongest political force in the south, with a de-facto safe haven in which to plot terrorist attacks against the US. And they can thank the war bureaucracies in the US who helped them achieve that powerful position. But the reason for the betrayal of US counter-terrorism interests is not that the senior officials in charge of these war bureaucracies want to promote al-Qaeda. It is because they had to sacrifice the priority of countering al-Qaeda to maintain the alliances, the facilities and the operations on which their continued power and resources depend.
