Greenland's receding icecap to expose top-secret US nuclear project

Greenland's receding icecapA top-secret US military project from the cold war and the toxic waste it conceals, thought to have been buried forever beneath the Greenland icecap, are likely to be uncovered by rising temperatures within decades, scientists have said.

The US army engineering corps excavated Camp Century in 1959 around 200km (124 miles) from the coast of Greenland, which was then a county of Denmark.

Powered, remarkably, by the world’s first mobile nuclear generator and known as “the city under the ice”, the camp’s three-kilometre network of tunnels, eight metres beneath the ice, housed laboratories, a shop, a hospital, a cinema, a chapel and accommodation for as many as 200 soldiers.


Bridgegate testimony: Christie 'knew about traffic jam as it was happening'

David WildesteinGovernor Chris Christie was told about the epic 2013 traffic jam at the George Washington bridge while it was underway, seemed happy about it and joked sarcastically that there was nothing political going on, a former loyalist testified Tuesday in the scandal that helped destroy Christie’s White House ambitions.

David Wildstein, a former executive at the agency that oversees New York-area bridges and tunnels, took the stand for the prosecution at the trial of two one-time Christie allies accused of engineering the four days of gridlock to punish a Democratic mayor for not endorsing Christie. Wildstein has pleaded guilty.


Galifianakis won't have ‘mentally challenged’ Trump on ‘Between Two Ferns’

Between 2 fernsActor and "Between Two Ferns" host Zach Galifianakis says he has no plans to bring Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on his hit show.

"No. That doesn’t interest me. Doing it the other way doesn’t interest me," Galifianakis told the Los Angeles Times. "He’s the kind of guy who likes attention — bad attention or good attention. So you’re dealing with a psychosis there that’s a little weird."


Bomb Blasts Strike Mosque, Congress Center In Germany City Of Dresden

Mosque blasts in DresdenTwo improvised bombs exploded in the eastern German city of Dresden on Monday evening ― one at a mosque and one at an international conference center ― but no one was injured, police said on Tuesday.

Florida Cops Must Pay Rape Victims $6M

Florida cops to pay for sexual assaultsThe morning in question has already cost two Lauderhill police officers their jobs. Now the 90 minutes allegedly spent behind a closed tire shop while on duty and coercing two women into performing sex acts will cost the two fired cops $6.2 million, a federal judge has ruled.

A federal judge in Miami based her verdict on testimony given by the women in February about the night they were pulled over by Officer Franklin Hartley after leaving a strip club, led to a dark, isolated location behind a Tamarac strip mall where they were joined by Officer Thomas Merenda and sexually battered. The women were 29 and 31 at the time of the alleged assaults.


Drug for spinal muscular atrophy appears effective in mice

Drug for spinal MS works in miceA drug designed for patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy was shown in a study with mice to help spinal muscular atrophy, according to new research.

The drug Pip6a-PMO significantly extended survival for mice with SMA, suggesting it could be effective at doing the same for humans in a clinical trial planned for next year, researchers report in a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Clinton set the trap and Trump walked in

Clinton-Trump debateThe first 20 minutes of the long-awaited showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton appeared to be a draw. It was only later, when Clinton began a barrage of possible explanations for Trump's failure to release his tax returns and then sat back as he squirmed his way through an explanation of his history of birtherism, that her victory became clear.

But it was rooted in those opening exchanges and a seemingly off-hand but actually quite deliberate decision by Clinton to bait Trump—by mentioning his father and challenging his own conception as a self-made man.
