  Russia fears leak of hypersonic missile secrets to West as security services searches space agency   Fri, 20 Jul 2018 18:19:59 -0400

Russia fears leak of hypersonic missile secrets to West as security services searches space agencyRussia's FSB security services raided a top space research centre Friday as part of an investigation into staff alleged to have passed secret information on Moscow's hypersonic missile programme to the West. The raid took place on the Central Research Institute of Mechanical Engineering (TsNIIMash), which is the Russian space agency Roscosmos's in-house think tank. Sources told the Kommersant daily newspaper that the probe was over "high treason," with around 10 people suspected of "cooperation with Western secret services." Vladimir Ustimenko, a Roscosmos spokesman, confirmed the search to the newspaper and said the agency was providing maximum assistance to the security services.   The search came just one day after the Defense Ministry published several videos of new weapons systems - two of which were Russia’s publicly acknowledged hypersonic missile projects. The general features of these weapons, known as Avangard and Burevestnik, have been publicly known since March, when they were announced by President Vladimir Putin. It was not immediately clear what information might have been leaked, with investigators telling Kommersant and other outlets that information on hypersonic projects was revealed to “western intelligence services.” TsNIIMash is not a military outfit, but Kommersant reports it was involved in some capacity with hypersonic missile research conducted by the Tactical Missile Corporation, a different company. According to unidentified security sources, “it has been established that the leak occurred from employees of TsNIIMash.” Those employees, Kommersant reported, were in contact with a former TsNIIMash employee, Dmitry Payson, who now works for Roscosmos. Outside the Central Research Institute of Machine Building (TsNIIMash) under the Roscosmos State Corporation responsible for Russian space industry development Credit:  Anton Novoderezhkin/TASS Mr Payson, a soft spoken rocket scientist with thick graying hair, is well known within the Russian - and international - space communities. Roscosmos is the main international partner of Nasa, and Payson often attended international scientific conferences. Asked by RBC for comment, he asked not to be named in connection with the investigation. The news shocked the Russian space community. One well-read industry blogger, Vitaly Egorov, wrote on Facebook that Payson “is one of the most literate experts of Russia’s space industry ... for me, the ultimate assessment of the quality of a post was whether Dmitry held it. "I don’t believe for a minute he was leaking information, he’s too smart for that.” The FSB has not released any statement on the investigation.

  Some countries buying Russian gear deserve sanctions waivers: Mattis   Sat, 21 Jul 2018 02:11:19 -0400

Some countries buying Russian gear deserve sanctions waivers: MattisUS Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Friday spoke in support of waivers for sanctions being imposed against nations buying military gear from Russia. The move comes amid concerns that imposing sanctions, particularly in the case of India and other Asian allies, could threaten friendly relationships that the US has been working to bolster in recent years. India, the world's top defense importer, has purchased Russian military hardware and expertise for decades, and has been in talks with Moscow to buy S-400 long range surface-to-air missile systems.

  Missouri boat accident kills 17, including nine from one family   Fri, 20 Jul 2018 22:44:47 -0400

Missouri boat accident kills 17, including nine from one familyBy Brendan O'Brien and Andrew Hay (Reuters) - Nine members of the same family were among 17 people killed when a "duck boat" sank during a storm on Thursday on a Missouri lake in one of the deadliest U.S. tourist tragedies in years. The World War Two-style amphibious vehicle was carrying 31 passengers including children when the sudden "microburst" storm hit Table Rock Lake outside Branson, with waves slowly swamping the vehicle before it sank. More than three dozen people have died in incidents involving duck boats on land and water in the United States over the past two decades.



  'A death sentence for polar bears': Trump administration seeks changes to endangered species protections   Fri, 20 Jul 2018 11:40:43 -0400

'A death sentence for polar bears': Trump administration seeks changes to endangered species protectionsConservation groups are fighting tooth and nail against Donald Trump’s administration in an effort to stop proposed revisions to the implementation of the Endangered Species Act from taking effect. Wildlife organisations responded with outcry after federal agencies announced plans to “modernise” and “streamline” the legislation, which protects species on the brink of extinction, and other animals facing significant threats to their population. Under the new changes, species listed as “threatened” would no longer receive the same protections of those listed as “endangered,” according to a joint statement from the US Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service.



  WhatsApp to limit forwarding of messages by 200 million Indian users in effort to halt violent lynchings   Fri, 20 Jul 2018 06:48:20 -0400

WhatsApp to limit forwarding of messages by 200 million Indian users in effort to halt violent lynchingsWhatsApp announced limits on Friday on the forwarding of messages by its 200 million Indian users in an effort to stop a spate of horrific lynchings and to assuage government threats of legal action in its biggest market. More than 20 people have been butchered by crazed mobs in the past two months across India after being accused of child kidnapping and other crimes in viral messages circulated wildly on WhatsApp. Late on Thursday India's government, scrambling to find a response, threatened to take WhatsApp to court, saying the "medium" for spreading malicious rumours "cannot evade responsibility and accountability". "If (WhatsApp) remain mute spectators they are liable to be treated as abettors and thereafter face consequent legal action," the information technology ministry said. The Facebook-owned firm responded on Friday with an announcement it will test limiting the ability to forward messages and cap at five the number of contacts or groups that messages can be forwarded to. Indian WhatsApp lynchings | A timeline It addition, it said it will remove the "quick forward button" next to media messages, making sending on messages more cumbersome. "We believe that these changes - which we'll continue to evaluate - will help keep WhatsApp the way it was designed to be: a private messaging app," a statement said. Worldwide, the company will limit the number of forwards to 20 other groups, a spokesman said. Lynchings are nothing new in India, but the spread of smartphones - there are a billion plus handsets, and data is cheap - to even the most remote corners has enabled rumours to be shared at lightning speed. In India people forward on WhatsApp more messages, photos, and videos, than any other country in the world, the company says.

  Baltimore lawsuit blames oil and gas companies for climate change   Fri, 20 Jul 2018 17:27:59 -0400

Baltimore lawsuit blames oil and gas companies for climate changeThe city of Baltimore filed a lawsuit on Friday against 26 oil and gas companies and entities, including BP Plc , Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp, for knowingly contributing to what the city called the catastrophic consequences of climate change. It was the latest in a string of cases attempting to hold oil and gas companies responsible for climate change caused by carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels. It came a day after a U.S. District Court judge dismissed a similar suit by New York City, saying in his ruling that climate change must be addressed through federal regulation and foreign policy because climate change is a global problem.
