  • Turkey to launch operation against U.S.-backed Kurds in Syria 'in a few days'

    Golocal247.com news

    Ankara and Washington have long been at odds over Syria, where the United States has backed the YPG Kurdish militia in the fight against Islamic State insurgents. Turkey says the YPG is a terrorist organization and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has waged an insurgency against the state in southeastern Turkey for 34 years. Turkey has already intervened to sweep YPG fighters from territory west of the Euphrates in military campaigns over the past two years, but up until now, it had not gone east of the river - partly to avoid direct confrontation with U.S. forces.

    SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Canada should distance itself from U.S. "hegemonism" and grant unconditional freedom to Meng Wanzhou, a top executive of China's Huawei detained in Vancouver on Washington's request, state-owned tabloid Global Times said in a Thursday editorial. Meng, the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies, has been accused by U.S. prosecutors of misleading banks about transactions linked to Iran, putting the banks at risk of violating sanctions. The United States needs to make a formal extradition request within 60 days of her arrest, which a Canadian judge will weigh to determine whether the case against Meng is strong enough.

    A frustrated Donald Trump reportedly threw briefing papers across the White House floor following his chaotic televised meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Ms Pelosi and Mr Schumer were widely considered to have bested Mr Trump after the 72-year-old was goaded into admitting he would be “proud” to partially shut down the government if congress refuses to approve $5bn in border wall funding. Following the dispute, Mr Trump “stormed out” of the Oval Office, and, holding a folder of briefing papers, “scattered them out of frustration – threw them across the room”, according to the LA Times’ White House reporter Eli Stokols.

US support for the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) has strained relations with Turkey, which fears the emergence of an autonomous Kurdish region on its southern border. "At the direction of Secretary (James) Mattis, the US established observation posts in the northeast Syria border region to address the security concerns of our NATO ally Turkey," Department of Defense spokesman Rob Manning said.

Asked by Reuters if standing by the kingdom meant standing by the prince, known as MbS, Trump responded: "Well, at this moment, it certainly does." Some members of Saudi Arabia's ruling family are agitating to prevent MbS from becoming king, sources close to the royal court have told Reuters, and believe that the United States and Trump could play a determining role.

  • The Geminid meteor shower peaks this week, and it'll be a special one

    Golocal247.com news

    Get ready for what might be the best meteor shower of 2018.  The Geminid meteor shower, which peaks late at night on Thursday into the wee hours of the morning Friday, could bring more than 100 meteors per hour to light pollution-free skies in dark areas around the world, according to NASA. That's a whole bunch of meteors. "If you can see the familiar winter constellations Orion and Gemini in the sky, you'll see some Geminids," NASA explained in a skywatching video. "Expect to see up to 120 meteors per hour from a dark sky location, but only after the first quarter moon sets around midnight your local time. From the Southern Hemisphere, observers should see fewer but still plenty of medium-speed meteors once Gemini rises above the horizon after midnight local time." Perhaps the best thing about a meteor shower is you don't need any special gear to see it. All you need to do is bundle up and head out to a dark area with little cloud cover and an unobstructed view of the sky to see the shooting stars.  Even if you're in a light-polluted part of the world, you still might be able to see at least a handful of meteors per hour. If you can't leave a city, try to find a dark park or a somewhere with as little artificial light as possible and get comfortable. Patience is your best friend when watching a meteor shower.  Grab a warm jacket or blanket and plan to camp out for quite a few hours to see as many meteors as you can. And remember, it takes about 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.  The Geminid meteor shower comes along once per year when the Earth passes through the trail of debris left behind by the asteroid 3200 Phaethon, making it somewhat unique.  Usually, meteor showers are sparked by comets, which slough off a fair bit of debris during their trips around the sun.  SEE ALSO: Unique gifts for your friend that's obsessed with skywatching Scientists think that 3200 Phaethon — which orbits the sun every 1.4 Earth years — could be a "dead comet," according to NASA, meaning it doesn't develop a comet's distinctive tail when it gets close to the sun and looks somewhat like an asteroid.  That said, the object has a strange, elliptical orbit which suggests a cometary origin, NASA added. "Due to its close approach to the sun, Phaethon is named after the character of Greek myth who drove the sun-god Helios' chariot," NASA said.  "Phaethon is a small asteroid — its diameter measures only 3.17 miles (5.10 kilometers) across. It was astronomer Fred Whipple who realized that Phaethon is the source for the Geminid meteors." WATCH: Finding alien life won't cause chaos and panic, according to scientists
