- How sewage is bridging the Israeli-Palestinian divide in Jerusalem
It has been thus for more than 40 years, despite the health and environmental risks and the historical sanctity of the valley, which skirts Jerusalem’s iconic Old City and runs past one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world. But over the years their attempts to address the issue have failed, because the Kidron traverses some of the most complex political territory in the conflict. Now, however, a grass-roots team of Israeli and Palestinian engineers, architects, environmental activists, and local officials have developed a comprehensive plan to rehabilitate the valley, from wastewater treatment to environmental education to new green tourism opportunities. “This should be the first thing peace talks do – what’s more obvious?” says former deputy mayor of Jerusalem Naomi Tsur, a key supporter of the initiative while in office 2008-13 and as ambassador of the global Green Pilgrimage Network.

- Major US Winter Storm Spotted from Space
Unlike the balmy, decidedly un-December like weather that has enveloped parts of the eastern United States, the West and Midwest have gotten a harsh blast of winter thanks to a powerful storm that blanketed a large swath of the country. The storm has dumped large amounts of snow and sent bone-chilling winds rushing across affected areas. Big Hole National Park, in Montana, reported a temperature of minus 31.9 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 35.5 degrees Celsius) this morning (Dec. 5), and the National Weather Service reported snowfalls in the area from an inch to more than a foot. Snow currently covers most of the Northern Plains, and is expected to continue through today, with the system gradually moving eastward and bringing snow and a mix of snow, ice and rain to areas from the Ohio Valley up to Albany, N.Y., according to Accuweather.

- Kanye, Go Away
The rapper Kanye West is known as one of the Western world's largest egotists, which is really saying something in the boastful world of rap. In a radio interview with MTV personality Sway Calloway in New York City, he came to President Barack Obama's defense, asserting, "Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. The Daily Beast published an article titled "In Defense of Kanye West," with the subheading "Saying Kanye West Is 'crazy' or 'childish' or 'out of control' follows the socially sanctioned belittlement and demonization of black men." In this piece, Rawiya Kameir completely sidestepped the Jewish-connections remark and stuck to the racism charge.
- Singapore marathon 'winner' ran only 6 km
A pastry chef who stunned Singapore marathon organisers by being the first local runner across the finish line admitted he cheated -- and has been doing so for years, a report said Thursday. Father-of-one Tam Chua Puh, 43, caused consternation when he finished Sunday's race several minutes ahead of Singapore's finest distance athletes in a time of 2hr 46min. However, Tam admitted he had run only six kilometres (3.7 miles) of the 42km race before giving up due to knee pain and taking a short cut straight to the finish line. Bespectacled Tam, wearing a baseball cap, baggy shorts and a knee brace, was initially declared the winner before organisers, after a hasty check, disqualified him for missing all the check points.
