Emerging Market Currencies Tumble to Record Low in ‘Violent’ Selloff

An index of the major developing-nation currencies fell to an all-time low this week, extending its drop over the past year to 19 percent, according to data compiled by Bloomberg going back to 1999. The Russian ruble, Colombia’s peso and the Brazilian real have fallen more than 30 percent over the past year for some of the worst global selloffs.

It is Hard Work Keeping the Anti-Gun Dream Alive

The dying idea of gun-prohibition has given us failure after failure. Each failure demands a successively larger media campaign to keep the gun-prohibition fantasy alive. It becomes harder and harder to sell gun-prohibition to anyone except the liberal medial. The media spin would be funny except for the number of disarmed victims.

John Bercow claimed £367 for going to Luton to talk about expenses scandal

The Speaker of the House of Commons has been criticised for racking up large travel expenses – including a £172 bill for a 0.7-mile chauffeur-driven journey that would have taken 15 minutes on foot.

John Bercow also spent £367 taking a car to Luton to deliver a speech on how MPs were restoring their reputation after the expenses scandal, figures released under the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act show.

His car to Lady Thatcher’s funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral, 1.8 miles from the Commons, cost £158, while he used an official car to travel to Canterbury to see Archbishop Justin Welby enthroned in 2013 at a cost of £524.

In April 2013, he spent £172 taking a car to Carlton House Terrace – just 0.7 miles from the Commons – to open a conference on alternative and augmentative communication. A taxi fare for the round trip was likely to have cost less than £15.

After Jeep Hack, Chrysler Recalls 1.4M Vehicles for Bug Fix

Welcome to the age of hackable automobiles, when two security researchers can cause a 1.4 million product recall. On Friday, Chrysler announced that it’s issuing a formal recall for 1.4 million vehicles that may be affected by a hackable software vulnerability in Chrysler’s Uconnect dashboard computers. The vulnerability was first demonstrated to WIRED by security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek earlier this month when they wirelessly hacked a Jeep I was driving, taking over dashboard functions, steering, transmission and brakes. The recall doesn’t actually require Chrysler owners to bring their cars, trucks and SUVs to a dealer. Instead, they’ll be sent a USB drive with a software update they can install through the port on their vehicle’s dashboard.

Biggest Fraud In Science History – The NASA/NOAA Surface Temperature Record

Over the last ten years, satellites show that the Earth is cooling. But that doesn’t suit the needs of the climate criminal community ahead of their convention in Paris this year, so NASA/NOAA created a completely fake surface temperature record – which is diverging from satellite temperatures at a rate of two degrees per century

Downing Civilian Airliners and Destroying Ancient Artifacts

Investigative journalist Robert Parry continues to report the use by the US vanguard of the MH-17 tragedy as a propaganda tool against Russia. The US claims to be outraged by the shoot-down, but its purported indignation was easily debunked at the time of the event, when commentators reminded Washington (leaving out many other acts) that it shot down an obviously civilian plane on a commercial route, Iranian Air flight 655, killing the almost 300 civilians on board. “The commander of a nearby U.S. vessel, David Carlson, wrote in the U.S. Naval Proceedings that he ‘wondered aloud in disbelief’ as ‘The Vincennes [the US ship] announced her intentions’ to attack what was clearly a civilian aircraft.”

'Fast' & vast: China building world's largest 500-meter radio telescope

China is assembling what has been hailed as the world's largest radio telescope, state media reported. The 500-meter tool will boast a dish the size of 30 football pitches, overtaking Puerto Rico's Arecibo Observatory, “only” 305 meters in diameter.

With a perimeter of about 1.6km, it will take up to 40 minutes to walk around the single-aperture spherical telescope, which is called "FAST". It will be constructed deep in the mountains of the southwestern Guizhou Province, built on a naturally formed bowl-shaped valley, Xinhua reports.

‘Big surprise’: Pluto’s hazy atmosphere, flowing nitrogen ice glaciers stun scientists (PHOTOS)

Pluto never ceases to amaze scientists: A new batch of images released by NASA’s New Horizons mission reveal an incredibly hazy atmosphere cast over the dwarf planet, as well as ice flowing on its surface – as glaciers flow on Earth.

The new set of high-resolution images of the planet’s surface reveal ice made of nitrogen, carbon monoxide and methane, flowing on Sputnik Planum, the flat plains on the western hemisphere of Pluto's Tombaugh Regio.

“With flowing ices, exotic surface chemistry, mountain ranges, and vast haze, Pluto is showing a diversity of planetary geology that is truly thrilling,” said John Grunsfeld, NASA associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate.
