2…………> New Trump Soldier: AG Barr

 

Saying that Mr. Barr was “my first choice from day one,” President Trump gave the nod to former US attorney-general William Barr to lead once again the Justice Department, a role that would put him in charge of the federal probe into Russian election interference.

If confirmed by the Senate, Mr. Barr would take over from Matthew Whitaker, who has been serving in an acting capacity since Mr. Trump forced out Jeffrey Sessions a month ago. Mr. Whitaker had been Mr. Sessions’s chief of staff.

Mr. Barr, a lawyer who was previously attorney-general from 1991 to 1993 under late president George HW Bush, had defended Mr. Trump’s controversial decision to fire then-FBI director James Comey in May 2017 when Mr. Comey was leading the Russia probe.

3…………> Applied Global Warming: Deadly India Pollution

 

India is home to the world’s 14 most polluted cities, whose toxic atmosphere claimed 1.24 million lives in 2017, or 12.5 % of total deaths recorded that year, with about 670,000 deaths caused by air pollution in the broader India’s areas, where more than 51% of the people who died being younger than 70.

4…………> Paris On Fire: Ayatollah Macron AWOL

 

89,000 police are deployed across the Islamic Sheikdom of France, with 8,000 in Paris alone as protests also spread to Belgium, with Prime Minister Charles Michel joining Grand Rabbinical Ayatollah President Emmanuel Macron as the target of frustrations by the “Yellow vests” who are demanding lower taxes, higher salaries and cheaper energy cost.

Authorities said 575 people had been searched and briefly arrested and that 361 of them remained in custody after police found potential weapons such as hammers, baseball bats and metal petanque balls on them.

Hundreds of protesters were milling around the Arc de Triomphe monument, which was defaced with anti-Macron graffiti last Saturday when rioters also torched dozens of cars and looted shops in the worst rioting in Paris since May 1968.

5…………> A Leading Space Explorer: China

 

After landing its “Jade Rabbit” rover on the Moon five years ago and planning to send its Chang’e 5 probes there next year and have it return to Earth with samples, China has launched a ground-breaking mission to land a spacecraft on the mostly unexplored far side of the Moon, demonstrating its growing ambitions as a space power to rival Russia, the European Union and US.

A Long March 3B rocket carrying the lunar probe Chang’e 4 blasted from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan Province in south-western China, placing in orbit the lander-rover combination designed to explore above and below the lunar surface during its 27-day journey to the South Pole-Aitken basin’s of the Von Karman crater.

The Moon’s far side is also known as the dark side because it faces away from Earth and remains comparatively unknown. It has a different composition to sites on the near side, where previous missions have landed.
