Grandma Redfeather of the Sioux Native American tribe walks in the snow to get water at the Oceti Sakowin camp where people have gathered to protest the Dakota Access oil pipeline in Cannon Ball, N.D. (AP/David Goldman) WASHINGTON (REPORT) — As dawn breaks over an encampment that was once home to thousands of people protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline, a few hundred holdouts rise for another day of resistance. They aren't deterred by the threat of flooding, nor by declarations from state and federal authorities that they must leave by Wednesday or face possible arrest. They're determined to remain and fight a pipeline they maintain threatens the very sanctity of the land. If we don't stand now, when will we? said Tiffanie Pieper, of San Diego, who has been in the camp most of the winter. Protesters have been at the campsite since August to fight the $3.

The death toll from Sunday's car bomb blast in Somalia's capital has climbed to 39, according to Mogadishu ambulance services. The vast majority of those killed were civilians in the Kawo-Goday mini-market in the city's Wadajir district, officials said. Security officials say they suspect the vehicle was aiming for another target but was unable to reach it due to road closures and increased deployment of security forces ahead of the inauguration of the new president, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, on Wednesday. There has been no claim of responsibility for the bombing. Militant group al-Shabab has frequently targeted hotels and markets during its decade-long insurgency. President Farmajo promised Monday to give a large reward to anyone with information about car bomb plots. “My promise to you as president, if you hear me, I will give you $100,000 if you report a car bomb plot before detonation,” he said.

The National Zoo is packing up its American-born panda cub Bao Bao for a one-way flight to China, where the 3-year-old will eventually join a panda breeding program. The cub won't have to worry about finding overhead bin space or dealing with a talkative seatmate on the 16-hour, nonstop flight Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. She'll be the only panda on the plane, traveling with a keeper and a veterinarian. Her accommodations are first class, too: a special metal crate the size of a double bed she can stretch out in. A sticker on its outside announces its contents: "one panda.'' In preparation for the trip, keepers have a packing list of Bao Bao's favorite foods including: 55 pounds of bamboo, 5 pounds of apples and 2 pounds of sweet potatoes. "Most of the flight, we hope she's going to eat,'' said panda keeper Marty Dearie, who will travel with Bao Bao to China and says pandas spend 13 to 16 hours a day eating.

Though all previous administrations have left the “7th-floor group” more or less untouched, the newly-minted Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, abruptly chose to fire most of the State Department employees working on this floor. Last Friday, Tillerson’s top aides told the vast majority of the Department’s seventh-floor staff that “their services were no longer needed,” CBS News reports . This is the second round of firings at the State Department since Trump took office as four other top officials had been let go at the end of January.

In the last few days T he New York Times has run several opinion pieces from the Israeli or American Zionist point of view. We've seen none from Palestinians. Last Wednesday was a low point. Right alongside Tom Friedman urging Donald Trump to save the Jews from division over Israel, the Times ran a piece called, A Settler's View of Israel's Future , by Yishai Fleshler, international spokesperson for the illegal settler community in Hebron. The very-Jewish-centric New York Times last Wednesday The article included a bible lecture about why the two-state solution was dead: Judea and Samaria belong to the Jewish people. Our right to this land is derived from our history, religion, international decisions and defensive wars. But as for the fundamental question what are you going to do about all the Palestinians? Fleshler offered five ideas, all from Israeli Jews.

The Post editors write: «The news [sic] that members of President Trump’s circle had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, reported by the New York Times on Tuesday, might have been less concerning if the president had responded by explaining or condemning the contacts and accepting the need for an impartial investigation. Instead, on Wednesday morning, he dashed off a half-dozen tweets in which he curiously both denied the news [sic] and attacked the leakers who disclosed it. In so doing, he gave more cause for Republicans and Democrats to demand answers about his opaque and increasingly troubling ties with Moscow». What the Washington Post innocuously calls «news» is actually leaked claims from anonymous US intelligence officials, which are illegal. It is also hardly «news» since the information is unverifiable claims made by anonymous sources.

Nottingham Forest legend Kenny Burns has his say on the major talking point from the Reds' 2-1 Championship defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. Double jeopardy? Keiren Westwood should have been in double trouble. There's no doubt in my mind that the Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper should have been sent off against Nottingham Forest. There's no way a yellow card was the right call when he brought Ben Brereton down inside the penalty area. It should have been a red. It was a shocking...
