He said alien evidence was likely to be buried beneath the ground, allowing it to survive asteroid impacts. “Structures buried beneath surfaces might survive and be discoverable as long as they do not suffer a collision so severe that their artificial nature is obliterated,” Wright added. “Merely destroying them would render them nonfunctional, but they might still be recognisably technological. “We might conjecture that settlements or bases on these objects would have been built beneath the surface for a variety of reasons, and so still be discoverable today.” Astronomers use telescopes like this to search for life out in deep space – but could evidence of aliens be found much closer to home? The astronomer suggested that very old spaceships could still be lingering in the Asteroid Belt or Kuiper Belt, a disc at the very edge of the solar system that’s made up of icy objects.

Only a lunatic would actually use them – Kim Jong Un, Michael Fallon, Theresa May – and you can’t deter a lunatic. And Michael Fallon’s suggestion this morning that nuclear weapons in some way deter terrorists is risible. But just as the media are very wrong to spend the last 24 hours telling us that Jeremy Corbyn is mad because he wont commit to destroying mankind, it would be equally wrong of me to argue that every single person who supports Trident is a blazing fascist. There are decent people who support Trident. But they would not support the Fallon/May doctrine of “pre-emptive nuclear war” and first use of nuclear weapons. I would like to believe that the Fallon/May enthusiasm for first use and pushing that red button, along with hard Brexit and anti-immigration rhetoric, would convince some moderate Tories and ex-Labour voters that they are being hustled very quickly down a path it is wrong to go down.

Being able to distinguish among our natural goodness and the distortions in our behavior that arise from violence is where spirituality plays a very important role. I rely upon the whole philosophy of nonviolence to mediate these distinctions. Nonviolence holds that we must never attack people; rather we attack the injustice and strive to dissolve and transform the structures of oppression. Faithfulness to nonviolence means never destroying human life, never undermining human dignity, never demonizing the other, and never dehumanizing even your greatest oppressor because nonviolence reveals that we are all in need of liberation. This point of view is important for my personal well-being. At Holyland Trust, we emphasize in our leadership and nonviolence training programs the need and capacity to always look towards the future. What is the future you want to create? We learn from the past, we honor the past, we respect the past, and we grieve the past.

Vaughn Highfield 6 min 24 sec ago Games Sometimes there’s no greater pleasure in life than utterly destroying things with your own hands. Perhaps that says a lot more about me than I’d care to believeStill, the very act of toppling dominoes, crushing sand castles underfoot, or punching through a Barbie Dream house is just a pleasure I can’t get enough of. It’s not every day I actually get to don the Blood Raven Space Marine’s weapon of choice but, in an effort to promote Dawn of War III , Sega invited me down for a chance to really feel the power an inter-stellar army has at its disposal. Weighing over 10kg, with 6 kilograms of that resting in the CNC-milled aerospace-grade aluminium knuckles, this punching machine is an absolute beast. Using two air canisters, the Power Fist can deliver 3,000 PSI of impact alongside my already impressive right hook*.

Created with the intention “to hold Monsanto accountable for human rights violations, for crimes against humanity, and for ecocide,” the tribunal, itself composed of well-known agricultural activists and related experts, originally posed six questions : Did Monsanto violate “the right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment, as recognized in international human rights law” through its activities? Did Monsanto violate “the right to food, as recognized in Article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights”? Did Monsanto violate “the right to the highest attainable standard of health”? Did Monsanto violate “the freedom indispensable for scientific research” and “the freedoms of thought and expression”? Was Monsantocomplicit in the commission of a war crime” by providing the U.S. with Agent Orange and other chemicals during the Vietnam War? Could the past and present activities of Monsanto constitute a crime of ecocide, understood as causing serious damage or destroying the environment, so as to significantly and durably alter the global commons or ecosystem services upon which certain human groups rely? The tribunal’s recently released advisory opinion was issued by a panel of five judges of several nationalitiesrepresenting Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Mexico and Senegal – who were all “legal professionals or practicing judges called upon to render an advisory opinion on the basis of a legal analysis and reasoning.

Members of an 83-year-old church that needs costly repair works are fighting to save it from closure. Aspley Methodist Church, at the corner of Melbourne Road and Aspley Lane, is riddled with dry rot - a wood destroying fungus - and the problem is being aggravated by asbestos that hasn't been dealt with correctly. The asbestos needs to be dealt with before the dry rot can be sorted and Reverend Lynita Conradie, minister of the church, has been told that the work could cost around...

The Congolese government must be held responsible for the exploitation of our natural resources, and the negative economic impact this ongoing conflict has on the Congolese people. Sexual violence has been accepted as part of this conflict for too long. That must change. We have an international consensus against the use of nuclear weapons and against chemical and biological weapons, and against torture. Since 1919, international law has recognized that rape as a weapon of war must end. And yet it continues as a cheap, effective tool of war. Making the bodies of women and children the battlefields. As human beings and governments, we need to say, if you win a war by destroying women, the international community will never accept you as a leader. We must pursue justice for all crimes against humanity that shock the conscience. We also need a cultural shift on the ground; men need to understand that to protect women is to protect themselves, and that respect for women is key to real equity.

It made you wonder what Pep Guardiola made of it after a particularly soul-destroying, legend-tarnishing defeat to a bus-parking Arsene Wenger. City were all over them for the most part and had no luck, rattling the woodwork twice and having a 'goal' wrongly disallowed. But once David Silva was kicked out of the game, they had no idea - Sergio Aguero apart - how to pick the locks on the Gunners' defence. It was yet another pedestrian, clueless performance that ridiculed the idea that Pep is a tactical genius. And it was yet another mistake by Claudio Bravo – this time with his precious feet – that led to Arsenal's first goal – and you have to ask why the penalty-saving Willy Caballero was not preferred with spot-kicks a strong possibility. So, it will be the first trophyless season for the great man - with even a top four place in jeopardy as he could face United on Thursday without Silva and Aguero.

” “They had wanted all of these things prosecuted, they were on a roll, they were freaking out the Iranians and then they were told, boom, stop,” Albright said of the Obama administration’s counterproliferation efforts. “And it’s hard to get them back again. We are shooting ourselves in the foot, destroying the infrastructure that we created to enforce the laws against the Iranians.” The repercussions from the prisoner swap are especially strong in Boston, where authorities had worked for years to build the case against Jamili, the suspected Iranian nuclear procurement agent, and his China-based associate Sihai Cheng. The two were secretly indicted in 2013 along with two Iranian companies, and Cheng pleaded guilty in mid-December 2015 to four criminal counts. He acknowledged conspiring with Jamili to knowingly provide more than 1,000 high-tech components known as pressure transducers to Iran, which authorities say advanced its nuclear weapons capabilities.

When the military and police drive herders from one ranch they move into another, the farmers' association said. The association has accused politicians campaigning for the August elections of inciting the herders to invade the ranches, saying the owners' leases have come to an end and that herders can take over the land and distribute it among themselves. The LFA is conscious that a small handful of inciters are driving this violence and that they have deployed militias to cause mayhem in parts of Laikipia. For months these criminals have been rampaging around with their illegal weapons, destroying lives and livelihood, Evans said. The land invasions started late last year. British national and ranch owner Tristan Voorspuy was killed last month when he went to inspect damage done by the herders on one of his lodges. Opposition leader and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga said ranch owners deserve protection under the law like all Kenyans.

Should that be the case, you will be called to account and held liable in one of the upcoming court or tribunal cases for crimes against humanity. The attacks on victims are launched from mobile directed energy weapon units as well as telecommunication infrastructure such as cell towers and satellite systems. This is an integrated weapons system that has been built up covertly around the world. The weapons system is now fully operational around the world and is destroying innocent victims' life in the millions and is subverting nations covertly. Individual victims are hounded and tormented by the national surveillance networks, encircled by perpetrators at all times and systematically tortured and mutilated with electromagnetic as well as ultrasonic weapons in public as well as in their homes. The assaults exploit the fact that beams from electromagnetic weapons are silent, invisible and can penetrate the walls of buildings such that victims can be assaulted everywhere without leaving traces that lead back to the perpetrators.
