Syrian militants have their names checked at a checkpoint manned by government forces ahead of their evacuation from the Waer neighborhood, in the central city of Homs, on May 21, 2017.

Pricing for the Predator Triton 700 starts at $2,999 (about 2,320, AU$4,020) and thats downright bonkers in a space of ultra-thin laptops that have been getting progressively more inexpensive. So this 15-inch better really bring the heat when it releases this August. Early verdict Acer continues to put out head turning gaming laptops and the Predator Triton 700 makes a much better case for itself than the digital piano-sized Predator 21 X. That is, until you see the $2,999 (about 2,320, AU$4,020) price tag attached to it. Without all the details on the just how well the GPU performs or battery life, its too early to call if this 15-inch ultra-thin gaming laptop is a winner, but its certainly one youll want to keep an eye on.

While she canceled at the last minute due to illness, she sent a short video message from New York saying she’d “always loved” the group and wished it “best regards for an incredible evening.” Organizers say that they’ve been talking more frequently with Lara Trump since the presidential election and that she’s offered Trump Organization golf and casino outings to help raise money through silent auctions. “She really wants to be the first First Family member that champions an animal issue,” said Kevin Chase, the Beagle Freedom Project’s head of operations. “Usually it’s military stuff, veterans, children, eating healthy. She’s like, ‘I want to finally be the voice of some animal stuff.’” Connecting with Chase, who is also known by his given name Kevin Kjonaas, brings political risk. The 39-year-old was released from a Minnesota federal prison in August 2011 after completing most of a six-year sentence for using a website to incite threats and harassment against a company that tested products on animals.

Prada, Armani and Hugo Boss directly source leather bags for men and women from Kolkata exporters, Juneja said. "I supply to Mango and we may too get a call shortly." Juneja said if the supply side dries up, the industry may have to import leather. BANGLADESH MAY BENEFIT Kolkata is a major leather industry hub, accounting for as much as 58% of leather goods exported from the country. There are some 1,500 exporters in the Bengal capital alone. August to December is the critical time for the industry, as 45% of the exports take place during these months. Exporters see Bangladesh benefiting from the ban on cattle slaughter in India. The leather produced in India contains certain type of grains which leather from countries like South America and Africa do not have. "Bangladesh's leather is more akin to that of leather manufactured in India," said Nafis of Zia Hide Skin Agency, who has a factory in Chennai.

In order to find ways to improve our understanding, NASA is going to get even more up close and personal with the Sun's corona than Helios 2, and blow its record out of the sky. Due to be launched around August next year, the robust little probe will swing past Venus seven times over the course of seven years to fine-tune an orbit that will take it within 6 million kilometres (a little under 4 million miles) of the Sun's surface – or photosphere – in 24 elliptical loops. That might not sound very close, but at just nine times the Sun's radius, it's still a rather daring move that will allow sensors to sweep close enough to trace the magnetic fields and catch a few solar particles without getting fried. As it is, the probe will be forced to endure temperatures up to 1,400° Celsius (about 2,550° Fahrenheit) while keeping its payload at a comfy room temperature.

Competitive imbalance is an unavoidable reality in the star-driven NBA." " Hibernating bears have experienced more suspense," the Chicago Tribune 's Jerry Brewer quipped. "Thank God for the NHL playoffs," TNT's Charles Barkley said after Golden State's 121-95 Game 4 elimination victory over the Utah Jazz in the second round (via Sportsnet's Michael Grange ). "That's what I'd be watching in the back instead of these blowouts." "Dynasties aren't new and aren't badthe [Los Angeles] Lakers and the Celtics dominating the 1980s was fine, and the [Chicago] Bulls taking over the '90s is still historic, and who cares if the Lakers and the [San Antonio] Spurs won most of the titles in the 2000s," SB Nation's Tim Cato wrote. "We had a good time, didn't we? "But on the other hand, while dominance can be enjoyable to watch, it would be nicer if the Warriors and Cavaliers' trips to their third straight Finals against each other showed even a morsel of entertainment or uncertainty, not this sure thing we've seen coming since last August.

Turkey has intensified its crackdown on Islamic State-associated militants since the deadly New Year's Eve attack on Istanbul's Reina nightclub that was claimed by IS, according to officials and analysts. Data gathered by the private Turkish firm S Bilisim Danismanlik said eight IS militants were killed in Turkey this year, with nearly 500 others arrested and 525 convicted. In addition, Turkey said its recently completed military operation in northern Syria, known as Euphrates Shield, killed 2,288 IS members since it began last August, including 750 this year. In past years, Turkey came under blistering criticism for allowing IS militants from other countries to gain passage into neighboring Syria and Iraq and letting IS sympathizers gain havens in the country's southeast region. Turkey has been targeted by IS militants several times including the Reina attack by an Uzbek gunman that took 39 lives and wounded many others.

..? And all of Tinka's progress comes encouragingly at a time of rising zinc prices. In 2016, the metal commonly used in galvanizing steel, has an excellent 2016, rising around 60%. This year hasn't been quite so meteoric, not least due to falling steel demand in China, but the signs are promising of a further uplift. One official study recently forecast global demand of the refined metal would exceed supply by 226,000 tonnes in 2017. It currently stands at around $2,633 per tonne. Earlier this year, Canadian broker RBC Capital noted it believes zinc will advance to $1.35 a pound or $2,976 a tonne over the year and singled out the metal as one with the "best fundamentals". In August last year, Carman told Proactive that the fundaments for zinc were “absolutely fantastic”. Tinka is a pre-revenue explorer, and the net loss for the six months to end March was $1.12mln (2016: $361,000). It had cash of $10.8mln at the end of the period compared to $3.7mln at the same time last year.

The commission is calling on the candidates to maintain peace during the August polls. Kenya’s presidential campaign has begun with 70 days to the August elections. So far the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has cleared seven candidates and rejected three because of logistical issues.

Last August, when new couple Amber Heard and Elon Musk were spotted leaving London hotspot The Box, there was a conspicuous member of their entourage in tow: British supermodel Cara Delevingne . Amber’s rumored lover since last year, Cara has consistently been at her side — even while businessman Elon has aggressively wooed the actress. Elon and Amber have spent the past nine months bonding over their shared love of science-fiction novels and showing up arm in arm for VIP movie screenings and strolls on Australia’s Gold Coast. But Amber is reportedly still involved with Cara — and turns out, it’s anything but a deal breaker. “Amber is pursuing relationships with both Elon and Cara,” says an insider, “and she’s even insisted that they all be comfortable hanging out together.” Amber “has been honest with both Elon and Cara the entire time, and they’re both OK with it.

Given the abysmal competition, international low-rate chains with a recognizable brand like Ibis are almost destined to be successful. This is what happened to the first Ibis in Kyiv. Opened in August 2011, within three months it reached 80 percent occupancy, according to Andriy Davidenko, the general manager at Ibis Kiev City Center. Now it boasts a yearly average 80 percent occupancy, hotel management said. If true, this is twice more than the average occupancy in the Kyiv hotels — which stood at less than 50 percent in the first half of 2016, according to the real estate consulting firm Ukrainian Trade Guild. Kyiv once had such a chronic shortage of hotels that people found it cheaper and easier to rent apartments. The city's 110 hotels are well-stocked on the high and low ends. That left room in the economy segment, for such players as Ibis, Holiday Inn and Park Inn.
