More and more smoke is turning up in the Trump/Russia investigation. How long until we see fire? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) abruptly canceled this week’s House Intelligence Committee hearings on the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia hours after the former acting attorney general notified the White House she would discuss her concerns about Michael Flynn. Sally Yates had been called to testify before the committee chaired by Nunes, and she agreed not to discuss classified information or other details that could compromise an ongoing investigation, reported the Washington Post. But the White House notified her attorney Thursday that Yates could not discuss her conversations with Trump administration officials about her concerns over Flynn, then the national security adviser, and his communications with the Russian ambassador.

Two UN-backed taskforces co-chaired by the United States and Russia and aimed at securing ceasefires and access for humanitarian aid in Syria seem to be having less impact. At the same time, regime supporters Russia and Iran along with rebel-backer Turkey have been pushing separate negotiations in Astana since January after gains on the ground by Damascus turned the tables in the conflict. Russian President Vladimir Putin was on Tuesday set to host his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani for talks that are being closely watched for signs of their next moves in Syria. Closer cooperation between the two Syrian regime supporters will likely go even further in marginalising US influence in the peace process. - 'No partner' - While urging Washington to be more fully engaged in the peace process, Sabra warned that a deal would be impossible "if the Russians do not withdraw their (military) support for the regime.

The solar tariffs are falling, and the sector is looking attractive, an NTPC official said. It is not clear yet whether NTPC will build a solar plant in the space available within the Kudgi project area. Karnataka cheered at the prospect of getting a 4000 MW super-critical thermal power station as the State had not got any ultra mega power project (UMPP) from the Centre. According to officials, they cannot ignore solar power when tariffs are falling so rapidly. It hit a record low of Rs 2.97 per unit in the bidding for three units of 250 MW capacity each in Madhya Pradesh, last month. In a recent tweet, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said: “We have crossed 10,000 MW of installed capacity of solar & in another 15 months we expect this to go up to 20,000 MW & 1,00,000 MW by 2022.” The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister, last month approved raising the capacity from 20,000 MW to 40,000 MW of the scheme for development of solar parks and ultra mega solar power projects.

" DUP Leader Arlene Foster gave a similar assessment of the Belfast talks, which have been chaired by Britain's Northern Ireland Minister James Brokenshire. "Regrettable the reality is that sufficient progress was not achieved in the time available to form a new executive," said Foster, who served as first minister before the executive collapsed. The political crisis began when O'Neill's predecessor, Martin McGuinness, stepped down in protest at the handling of a botched green energy programme by Foster. McGuinness died on Tuesday of a rare heart condition. Despite Sinn Fein's assertion that talks were over, the British government said it was still determined to see a "functioning executive" put in place. "Even at this stage I urge political parties to agree to work to form an executive and provide people here with the strong and stable devolved government that they want," said Brokenshire.

Commenting further, Ahmad Zahid said efficient management of water was the responsibility of all parties, both at the federal government and state government levels, in order to avoid water shortages. "We should take the example of Somalia ... as many as 250 people die each day from drought, and Malaysia can give food and other aid, but it is only temporary. "We are helping Somalia find underground water even though it is 150m below the ground so that it can be used for agricultural land which is parched dry. This is our contribution through technology. If we have the means to help other countries, surely we can prove that we are capable of managing water well," he said. Ahmad Zahid also praised the Negri Sembilan water management system which is chaired by its Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan who has succeeded in managing water resources in the state well when other states were facing droughts.

In a video, the group's founder, Nathan Damigo, an Iraq War veteran who went to prison for robbing a cab driver at gunpoint in late 2007, called for people to download the group's fliers and plaster their cities. We would actually invite everyone to do this. To get out to these students what they're not being told, he said, referring to his belief that university professors are telling students lies about diversity. Damigo's group sells its propaganda for between $1.50 a sticker and $30 for a glossy poster. The posters make vague statements on civilization and European identity over photos of classic sculpture. At least one references President Trump's campaign slogan, Make America Great Again. They make no mention that Damigo once chaired the National Youth Front, which the Southern Poverty Law Center says was tied to a Southern California skinhead group.
