Democrat Adam Schiff, probing Trump-Putin ties, has gone up against Russia (and Stephen Colbert) before

28 Mar 2017 05:00:09

WASHINGTON — Congressman Adam Schiff, increasingly the Democratic point man on the investigation into allegations of overly cozy ties between President Trump and Russia, is a soft-spoken former federal prosecutor and a critic of government surveillance who may be the only lawmaker ever to draw blood from comic Stephen Colbert — literally. Now Schiff is locked in a tense, headline-making standoff with the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, over how to proceed with a multi-tiered investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 election, a probe that the White House sees as a dagger aimed at Trump’s legitimacy even though Schiff hasn’t drawn blood yet.

Japan ruling party urges strike capability amid N. Korea threat

29 Mar 2017 10:37:48

Japan's ruling party said Wednesday the government should consider developing the capability to strike enemy bases if the country is attacked, citing North Korea's missile and nuclear threats. North Korea conducted two nuclear tests last year and test-fired four ballistic missiles just this month, three of which landed off Japan's coast. "North Korea's provocative acts are reaching levels our country can simply no longer overlook," a Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) security panel said in a proposal to be submitted to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as early as Thursday.

Did an astroid strike a Martian ocean and create a cataclysmic tsunami?

27 Mar 2017 21:01:26

There's no shortage of theories about what Mars was like billions of years ago. The prevailing guess is that water was abundant, and there may have even been enough to form huge oceans. New research into an existing geographical feature on the red planet could provide new evidence of not only the existence of a massive body of water, but also an astroid impact that could have generated multiple devastating tsunamis.

Evidence that water existed on Mars is ample, and many researchers believe that telltale signs of tsunamis are also present. In an effort to explain how a tsunami might have been generated, scientists have been looking for the spot (or spots) on the Martian surface where an astroid or other celestial object could have come crashing down.
One particularly interesting spot on the planet, which NASA describes as "thumbprint-looking," was long thought to be the result of mud or other debris sliding downward after being pushed up by a glacier or other geographical shift. It's called the Lomonosov crater, and new research supports a very different theory as to how it got there.
Instead of being simply the result of gravity pulling dirt downhill, scientists now believe it could very well be the last remaining mark of an astroid that violently struck Mars billions of years ago. What's more, the characteristics of the crater support the idea that when the rock struck the planet, the spot it hit was actually an ocean, leading to multiple huge tidal waves as the displaced water was pushed from and pulled into resulting crater.
