Earth-like Martian Past "The only ways on Earth that we know how to make these manganese materials involve atmospheric oxygen or microbes."

Chemicals found in Martian rocks by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover suggest the Red Planet once had more oxygen in its atmosphere than it does now.

Researchers found high levels of manganese oxides by using a laser-firing instrument on the rover. This hint of more oxygen in Mars' early atmosphere adds to other Curiosity findings -- such as evidence about ancient lakes -- revealing how Earth-like our neighboring planet once was.

This research also adds important context to other clues about atmospheric oxygen in Mars' past. The manganese oxides were found in mineral veins within a geological setting the Curiosity mission has placed in a timeline of ancient environmental conditions. From that context, the higher oxygen level can be linked to a time when groundwater was present in the rover's Gale Crater study area.

There’s No Covering Up This One — Visible Pollution Leaking From NY Nuclear Plant

US Coast Guard officials have cordoned off a portion of Lake Ontario this week, after aerial spotters found a visible “sheen” that is coming from a nuclear power plant in upstate New York.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary aircrew first noticed the sheen on Sunday. Shortly after, a boat crew from the Oswego station tested the sheen and a “temporary safety zone” was put in place.

The Free Thought Project spoke to the Coast Guard Sector Buffalo Command Center on Tuesday and confirmed that the zone was still closed off, and there is no information as to when it will reopen.

It's enough to make you weep! Tory peer who broke down as MEPs gave him a standing ovation is set to walk away with a £250,000 pay-off after resigning

Lord Hill said he was doing the 'right thing' by standing down after campaigning unsuccessfully during the referendum for us to stay in.

But despite voluntarily resigning from the £200,000 a year post, Lord Hill is in line for an extraordinary package that means he will still be getting paid even after the UK leaves the bloc.

Now Obama tells Britain it should be like Norway: Latest Brexit lecture as he says vote to leave is only 'a pause button on integration'

President Barack Obama says 'hysteria' over Britain's leaving the European Union is unwarranted.

'The average person is not going to notice a big change,' said Obama - if the United Kingdom emulates Norway.

Norway is not in the EU, and yet it is one of America's closest allies, the U.S. president told NPR as part of a long interview, a section of which was released today.

'I think that the best way to think about this is, a pause button has been pressed on the project of full European integration,' he said.

Brexit vote is 'final nail in the coffin' for £18billion Hinkley Point nuclear power station plans, says energy expert

Dr Paul Dorfman, an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the Energy Institute, University College London, said EDF, a majority French-owned company, is 'extremely unlikely' to invest given the current economic climate.

The long-delayed project was due to have Hinkley Point power station producing 7 per cent of the UK's electricity by 2017. But, if built, the earliest date it could now start doing so is 2025.

Even that looks a remote possibility according to Dr Dorfman, who told MailOnline Brexit was 'the final nail in the coffin' for Hinkley Point.

He said: 'It gives everybody the chance to slip out without losing any more face.

'How is France going to invest in the UK if the UK is no longer part of the union?

'Not only that but the French nuclear industry has huge financial problems and unions are screaming that they don't want it [Hinkley Point].'

Victory Is Possible

Few people expected the positive outcome of Brexit referendum. Among other doubters, I expected the UK government will borrow a trick from the Clinton collection, and proclaim the Bremain hath it.

We witnessed so many dirty tricks in the Dem primary this year: the votes were not counted, but the newspapers called Hillary the winner; millions could not vote at all being stricken off the roll; Trump was demonised as a new Hitler; so I thought they will do the same in the UK vote.

Hacked emails show Hillary Clinton campaign's surveillance of journalists as aides ordered volunteers to 'keep an eye' on reporters

The hacked Gmail account of one of Hillary Clinton's volunteers shows how the campaign surveils journalists who might get too close to the candidate.

Emails phished by Guccifer 2.0, who's dumped caches of documents from the Democratic National Committee onto the internet, show Clinton aides telling volunteer Sarah Hamilton to 'keep an eye' on certain reporters.

Hamilton's Gmail account was hacked using a spoofed Gmail log-in page, according to the Smoking Gun, which released a handful of email conversations today.

Death of the 4th Amendment

While the First Amendment—which gives us a voice—is being muzzled, the Fourth Amendment—which protects us from being bullied, badgered, beaten, broken and spied on by government agents—is being disemboweled.

An Endless Cycle of Indecisive Wars

Here’s an unavoidable fact: we are now in a Brexit world. We are seeing the first signs of a major fragmentation of this planet that, until recently, the cognoscenti were convinced was globalizing rapidly and headed for unifications of all sorts. If you want a single figure that catches the grim spirit of our moment, it’s 65 million. That’s the record-setting number of people that the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees estimates were displaced in 2015 by “conflict and persecution,” one of every 113 inhabitants of the planet. That's more than were generated in the wake of World War II at a time when significant parts of the globe had been devastated. Of the 21 million refugees among them, 51% were children (often separated from their parents and lacking any access to education). Most of the displaced of 2015 were, in fact, internal refugees, still in their own often splintered states. Almost half of those who fled across borders have come from three countries: Syria (4.9 million), Afghanistan (2.7 million), and Somalia (1.1 million).

Despite the headlines about refugees heading for Europe -- approximately a million of them made it there last year (with more dying on the way) -- most of the uprooted who leave their homelands end up in poor or economically mid-level neighboring lands, with Turkey at 2.5 million refugees leading the way. In this fashion, the disruption of spreading conflicts and chaos, especially across the Greater Middle East and Africa, only brings more conflict and chaos with it wherever those refugees are forced to go.
