How Politicians Capitalized On The Orlando Shooting To Take Away Your Rights

‘Minority Communities Bear The Brunt Of Police Abuses’

From the media accolades for Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in a recent Supreme Court case involving the use of illegally obtained evidence, it’s almost unclear if media realized that the ruling represents a loss for her point of view. With a 5-3 decision in the case Utah v. Strief, the Court said that a police officer may detain someone without cause and run their identification, and, if they uncover a warrant, may arrest them and charge them with additional crimes, based on what they find in a search.

ALIEN BREAKTHROUGH: Proof of LIFE ON MARS close as Nasa finds Earth-like atmosphere

The space agency’s Curiosity Rover found high-levels of manganese oxides in Martian rocks as more evidence mounts the Red Planet was once a suitable candidate to host life.

Another recent finding includes proof of ancient lakes on Earth’s closest neighbour, as well as the belief water once flowed freely there.

The discovery of the manganese oxides could be the strongest clue that life once existed as they are formed here on Earth by “atmospheric oxygen or microbes," said Nina Lanza, a planetary scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.

She added: "Now we're seeing manganese oxides on Mars, and we're wondering how the heck these could have formed?

We're NOT talking of Scotland NOW: Donald Tusk SNUBS Sturgeon over EU meeting demand

The First Minister insists she has no intention of following Westminster’s lead as Britain breaks from the bloc, stating she wants her country to remain in the Union.

But after revealing she would travel to Brussels tomorrow to discuss the options for her country, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, said the meeting will not take place.

Sturgeon was set to meet European Parliament President Martin Schulz to press for continued inclusion with the EU for her country, which largely voted to remain during the June 23 referendum.

Tusk, however, said now is not the right time to discuss what Scotland wants, just days after Britain voted for a Brexit.

Has climate change been disproved? Large Hadron boffins cast shock DOUBT on global warming

A study published this week in the journal Nature has looked more closely at the tiny particles within clouds, known as cloud seeds, that help cool the planet and found they can be produced naturally.

Clouds, including natural ones and those from aerosols, are seen by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as the single biggest source of uncertainty about the so-called human-caused climate change.

The problem stems from not knowing how cloudy the world was before the industrial era, and the fact that some of the gases produced by burning fossil fuels said to warm the plant in the long-term, actually help cool it in the short-term through cloud formation.

But now CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, have left the issue even more confusing after discovering, while creating the fake cloud, that trees could have been putting these aerosols into the atmosphere since they first grew at the time of the dinosaurs.

Italy's financial crisis could DESTROY the Euro as nation tipped to be next domino to fall

The country is facing a series of economic and political crises which could see it crash out of the eurozone just months after Britain rocked Brussels by backing Brexit.

Following the historic vote on Thursday, Italy’s top stock market saw its biggest ever one-day fall of 12 per cent, as traders rushed to dump financial stocks.

The carnage continued this week with shares in the nation's two biggest banks, UniCredit and Intesa Sanpaolo, falling by eight and more than 10 per cent respectively.

Investors are worried Italian banks could go under, thanks to billions of pounds worth of bad loans on their books.

They are estimated to have around £270billion of loans that could default and spark a financial crisis in Italy. Experts believe it could rip apart the eurozone.
