US will miss Paris climate pact target by a third

SAN FRANCISCO: The United States will fall short by a third on its commitment under the Paris climate treaty to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to a report released Wednesday in San Francisco.A crescendo of efforts at the sub-national level by states, cities and business to shrink the country’s carbon footprint will not fully compensate for President Donald Trump’s decision to scrap his predecessor’s climate policies and promote the use of fossil fuels, it found.Financed by former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, the “Fulfilling America’s Pledge” report kicks off the three-day Global Climate Action Summit, a gathering of several thousand...

London: A 22-year-old Sikh soldier, who created history by becoming the first to wear a turban during an annual parade to mark British Queen Elizabeth II's birthday ceremony, could be kicked out from his post after he was tested positive for cocaine, according to a media report.

United Nations: The White House promised Monday to keep exerting "maximum pressure" on Iran and said new sanctions were in the pipeline while insisting that the US was not seeking the overthrow of Tehran's clerical regime. "As I have said repeatedly, regime change in Iran is not the administration's policy," national security advisor John Bolton told reporters as he previewed President Donald Trump's week at the United Nations General Assembly. "We've imposed very stringent sanctions on Iran, more are coming, and what we expect from Iran is massive changes in their behaviour." "And until that happens we will continue to...

Space Rovers Become First-Ever Spacecraft To Land On Asteroid Surface

On a primitive piece of space rock more than 100 million miles from Earth, two tiny robotic explorers took their first cautious "hops" this weekend - the first movements made by any human-made spacecraft across the surface of an asteroid.The twin rovers were deposited Friday atop the half-mile-wide asteroid Ryugu by their parent spacecraft, the Japanese Space Agency's Hayabusa 2. The following day, JAXA shared an impressionistic image of their landing site: the craggy dark stone of the carbon-rich Ryugu lit by a brilliant beam of light from the sun.The rovers, dubbed MINERVA-II 1a and 1b, are each roughly the...

China Says Can't Hold US Trade Talks With "Knife To The Throat"

Beijing: China said on Tuesday it was impossible to hold trade talks with the United States while Washington is imposing tariffs that are like "holding a knife to someone's throat".Speaking a day after Washington activated tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, vice commerce minister Wang Shouwen said China is open to negotiations but that the two sides must treat each other "equally and with respect"."Now that the US has adopted this type of large-scale trade restrictions, they're holding a knife to someone's throat. Under these circumstances, how can negotiations proceed?" Wang told a news conference.US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin...

Meet The Wealthy, Private Couple Behind Washington's Most Original Museum

Potomac, Maryland: Back in 2006, as Glenstone, a private art museum in the Maryland suburbs of the District of Columbia, was preparing to open its first exhibition hall, curator Emily Wei went to Mitchell Rales, her billionaire boyfriend and the guy footing the bill, with a proposal: She wanted him to actually explain his vision for the museum to the press."He's like, 'You don't understand, do you? I haven't given an interview since 1984. I'm not going to start now,' " Emily, now 42, recalls. "So we had this fight because we didn't know each other that well.""It wasn't really...
