When you think of solar, you probably think of vast fields of black panels on large-scale farms, producing enormous quantities of power. But the real engine of the solar movement is on rooftops in the regional and urban fringe.

If the SDF is able to “take” Raqqa, the U.S. will then be able to shout from the rooftops that America has liberated Raqqa and defeated ISIS in its own capital. The U.S. also has another goal in Raqqa – the theft of more Syrian territory by using its proxy forces going by the name of the SDF. Whether or not ISIS proper is in control of Raqqa is merely a secondary concern for the United States. If the SDF succeeds in imposing control over the city and the province, then the West will have succeeded in cementing control over the area in the hands of its proxy terrorists once again, but with yet another incarnation of the same Western-backed jihadist fanaticism with a Kurdish element for the mix. The U.S. can then use the “moderate rebel” or “Kurdlabel to keep Russia and Syria from bombing the fighters who merely assumed a position handed to them, albeit through some level of violence, by ISIS.

The helicopter shot back, killing 19 members of my family. Nineteen people. Do you know they are doing this? They are fighting from people's rooftops and coalition forces are fighting back with families inside. They burned our cars. They stole all the furniture. They beat up women.

Ibrahim Rfaee explained that his grandmother had been hit as she wasn't able to move quickly enough through the corridor connecting self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) held Tal Alruman with Mahmoun. SOT, Ibrahim Rfaee, Khalas' grandson (Arabic): "We are asking for bombing/striking specific targets. There are still families inside the houses and the aircrafts keep striking/bombing. We are asking the coalition planes to be specific when they bomb. They were bombing randomly." SOT, Ibrahim Rfaee, Khalas' grandson (Arabic): "Daesh go on the rooftops of the houses and the families don't know, then the aircrafts come and bomb it.

Elite terrorist fighters from the Islamic State's Furqan and Tariq bin Ziyad special units were wiped out in fighting this week, according to Sada. Iraqi commanders used new tactics to keep ISIS defenders off balance, allowing for quick territorial gains. Military observers had expected the assault on western Mosul to take months, but many now predict the recapture of all its neighborhoods in a matter of weeks. Thousands of civilians in western Mosul have been escorted out of neighborhoods recaptured by Iraqi forces, but hundreds of thousands are still trapped by the fighting. Conditions for those civilians are grim, according to United Nations aid workers. Some civilians are forced to allow the terrorists to fire their weapons from their rooftops. Coalition aircraft carried out 17 airstrikes in the western Mosul area from Monday through Wednesday afternoon.

Each year, bonfires, many of them unattended, are seen blazing throughout the city side streets. Some people from their windows and rooftops indiscriminately throw firecrackers into crowded streets with no regard for the people and property below. Every year people die, many get hurt and burned, but still people will come out. After what happened to firefighters in the tragic Plasco incident back in January, this year a popular campaign has been launched to discourage people from using dangerous firecrackers. Iranian people will celebrate the festival next week.

Oh, brilliant. There is an anxious wait as the sensor is retrieved. The light is still flashing. That's a good sign. This is what the data shows - the route taken by the pigeons and, crucially, the temperature just above the rooftops. It will show how it changes across big cities. Rick says it will be used by planners to see where we should build hospitals and schools.

While this is largely true, “closed doors” is also a metaphor for hiding the violent relationship from everyone on the outside. “I dont know any woman who shouted it from the rooftops,” Cook said. “Part of the syndrome is hiding it. The only difference is ... no one asks men. If they are asked, they will tell.” First Registered, Dedicated Shelter for Battered Men . In the late 1970s, there were three shelters for battered women in the United States. Today there are hundreds. The first – and so far only – registered, dedicated shelter for battered men in the country opened in 2016 in Batesville, Arkansas. The Taylor House Domestic Violence Shelter for Men was established by Patty Duncan’s Family Violence Prevention Inc. Initially, Duncan’s group had been housing men in their sole safe-haven shelter. Two rooms had bathrooms in them, so men stayed there.
