    The Turkish government is still in talks with Washington about the possible sale of Patriot missile defense systems, a senior Turkish official said Friday. Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) Deputy Chairman Öztürk Yılmaz, who visited Washington last week, told a group of Turkish journalists on Friday that Turkey contacted Americans about the Patriot systems two to three weeks ago. The Turkish official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed Yılmaz's remarks and said that Turkey was routinely conducting this kind of talks and Turkish expectations on the deal has not changed. "For us, technology transfer and joint production...

    NASA will coordinate with observatories around the world to try and get an exact trajectory for the asteroid in the days leading up to the flyby.... "This is the perfect target for such an exercise because while we know the orbit of 2012 TC4 well enough to be absolutely certain it will not impact Earth, we haven't established its exact path just yet," says Paul Chodas, manager of NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies. This experiment will test how well NASA can determine the orbit of a newly detected asteroid that might pose a danger to us. If the...

    The human immune system is so weakened by space travel that even a simple virus could prove deadly [...snip...] Yet although we now have the technological ability to leave Earth, scientists have found another stumbling block to colonising new worlds - our own immune system. Although it is said we are all made of star stuff when it comes to travelling away from our home planet humans are far more vulnerable to the rigours of space than our interstellar origins might suggest. Billions of years of evolution has effectively backed mankind into a corner of the Solar System that it...

    The 2016 presidential election seems to have rocked the two party system. This corrupt way we run our country will inevitably collapse as it is unsustainable. The people are waking up and more Americans are becoming Independents on a daily basis, disgusted by the hypocrisy inherent in both major political parties. Democrats were ridiculously confident in their ability to defeat the new Republican Party with Donald Trump as its face and they are only making matters worse since their defeat last November. The party of the left remains in shambles. Its leadership is nonexistent. Their donors are outraged. And the...

    The United States is sailing in uncharted waters today as the intelligence-security community wages an all-but-declared rebellion against President Donald Trump. Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosensteins decision on Wednesday to appoint former FBI director Robert Mueller to serve as a special counsel charged with investigating allegations of any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, is the latest and so far most significant development in this grave saga. Who are the people seeking to unseat Trump? This week we learned that the powers at play are deeply familiar. Trumps nameless opponents...

    If youve ever considered that the systems of governance seem to be geared towards crushing the regular folk, youd not be far wrong. Its not exactly that the machinations of the elite are specifically against the individual, its just that the individual is an inconvenience to the processes of power. Should you think this position is a little out there, consider the following: Free-Speech Zones If there is such a thing as a Free Speech Zone, by its very nature this means that all other areas are not Free Speech Zones.

    Full title: How to steal $75,000 from the poor in one Day's work - traffic court is a tax collection scheme masked as justice The new liberality concerning marijuana possession in the United States is long overdue, but let’s not exaggerate how much progress we’ve made. Users might not be ending up in jail as frequently as they did 10 years ago. But cops, judges, and courts still exercise arbitrary power to ruin people’s lives, and they continue to do so at astonishing rates, all over the country. I recently saw this firsthand. I sat in a municipal traffic court...

    The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

    DETROIT Detroit is eligible to shed billions in debt in the largest public bankruptcy ever in the United States, a federal judge ruled Tuesday, while also finding that the public pensions could be reduced during reorganization despite a provision in Michigans Constitution. In ruling that Detroit was eligible to reorganize under federal bankruptcy law, Judge Steven W. Rhodes said the city met every test of insolvency, including failing to pay its debts and being unable to provide a minimum level of basic services to its 680,000 residents. This once proud and prosperous city cant pay its debts, the judge...

    A scavenging immune system cell that helps limbs regrow in salamanders brings hope that humans will one day be able to mimic the animal's amazing regenerative powers, say Australian researchers. The findings by Dr James Godwin, of the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University, and colleagues, are published in today's issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Salamanders (axolotls) are unique amongst vertebrates in being able to repair their hearts, tails, spinal cord and brain, and even regrow whole limbs during adult life, says Godwin. He sees their "perfect regeneration" as a holy grail. "We're trying to...
