ISS and Views from Space (-ace -ace) Prospects There is an ISS transit over SW Africa at around 15:45 UT, offering a chance to catch a transit of the station across the partially eclipsed Sun. Sun observing spacecraft in low Earth orbit including Hinode and Proba-2 also usually get good views of the eclipse. New Moon sightings: And for the rest of the world, the hunt will be on to recover the slim waxing crescent Moon post-eclipse on the evening of Monday, February 27th. This lunation, first sighting opportunity without optical assistance favors southeast Asia. Then, its on to eclipse season number two, featuring a partial lunar eclipse on August 7th, and then the big ticket event: the total eclipse of the Sun spanning the contiguous United States from coast to coast. Umbraphiles have been planning for this one and its brief 160 seconds maximum of totality for well over a decade now, no lie.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday the Trump administration is aiming to pass tax reform by the August congressional recess but predicted the resulting economic growth wouldnt be noticeable until the end of next year. In an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Mnuchin called tax reform his No. 1 priority. “The first, most important thing that will impact growth is a tax plan, so we are committed to passing tax reform,” he said. “It’s going to be focused on middle-income tax cuts and simplification in making the business tax competitive with the rest of the world, which has been a big problem and a big reason why businesses are leaving and cash is sitting offshore.” He said economic growth can rise above 3 percent with a combination of tax reform and regulatory relief, a projection that is far higher than those of the Federal Reserve and Congressional Budget Office.

(Photo by AFP) De Mistura shuttled between the two sides during three previous rounds of Syria talks in Geneva last year. Syrian government officials and armed opposition representatives never sat down at the same table. The intra-Syrian talks come shortly after the conclusion of the second round of Syria peace negotiations, facilitated by Russia, Turkey and Iran, in the Kazakh capital of Astana. The negotiations, which were held in a behind-closed-doors format, sought to pave the way towards political negotiations in Geneva. Russia, Iran and Turkey agreed at the end of the first round of Astana talks in January to establish a mechanism aimed at monitoring the ceasefire that took effect across Syria on December 30, 2016. Syria has been fighting foreign-sponsored militancy since March 2011. The UN Special Envoy for Syria estimated in August last year that more than 400,000 people had been killed in the Syrian crisis until then.

MUMBAI: APM Terminals Pipavav Thursday said it received the Hoegh Tracer, one of the world’s largest pure car and truck carrier (PCTC), and the largest to ever call an Indian port. At 14 decks high, the Hoegh Tracer has a capacity of 8,500 vehicles, and loaded 1,700 cars at Pipavav for export delivery on the Hoegh Middle East, India and Africa (MIAF) Service, APM Terminals said in a statement. APM Terminals Pipavav, in partnership with NYK Auto Logistics (India), opened a dedicated common user integrated Roll on Roll off (RoRo) terminal in August of 2015, with a capacity of 250,000 vehicles annually. Roll-on/roll-off ships are vessels that are used to carry wheeled cargo. The RoRo ship is different from LoLo (lift on-lift off) ship that uses a crane to load the cargo. The vehicles in a RoRo vessel are loaded and unloaded by means of built-in ramps.

S. intelligence community has concluded that Russian intelligence engineered cyber-attacks on Democratic officials and groups with the intent of boosting Trump’s presidential campaign by damaging that of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The screenshots of hacked texts to Manafort’s daughter do not include any information indicating the date on which they were sent. But Manafort said that the first of the texts arrived shortly before The New York Times published an August expose revealing that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine had obtained documents — which have since come under scrutiny — that appeared to show $12.7 million in cash payments earmarked for Manafort. Manafort challenged the authenticity of the documents. And, while he said he could not be sure whether the texts apparently referencing them were in fact sent by Leshchenko, he said “I find it coincidental that I got these texts, and then he released these phony journals.
