Majid Takht Ravanchi told a U.N. Security Council meeting Wednesday that the three European countries and the United States, which pulled out of the deal, will have to "accept the full responsibility for any possible consequences" if serious steps aren't taken. Iran said on June 17 that it would surpass the deal's 300-kilogram (600-pound) limit on low-enriched uranium by Thursday, and has recently quadrupled its production.
What is student debt? Going to university in the US is expensive – costing an average of over $34,000 a year in tuition and fees at private universities – which means for most Americans, the only way of viably pursuing higher education is to take out a student loan. An estimated 45 million Americans have student loans, contributing to an overall national student debt of $1.6tn.
A pickup driver accused of slamming into a group of motorcycles waived arraignment and entered a not guilty plea Tuesday in New Hampshire on seven counts of negligent homicide as chilling details emerged from last week's crash and the man blamed for the carnage. Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, was arrested at his Massachusetts home Monday and brought before a judge for a brief court appearance. A group of 22 riders on 15 motorcycles had just finished dinner Friday and was rolling through the rural town of Randolph, 100 miles north of Concord, en route to a nearby veterans fundraiser.
In her campaign video, Gideon criticizes Collins's vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court as a threat to abortion rights. In October, Collins defended the judge against allegations of sexual misconduct in a 30-minute speech on the Senate floor. Susan Collins's vote to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court may be paying off for her, but it's put women's control over their own health care decisions in extreme jeopardy,” Gideon says in the video.
A Texas school district has fired a substitute teacher after receiving a tip that she made pornographic videos that included footage recorded in a classroom.
It appears that the 2021 Ford Bronco will be powered by the turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four currently in use in the Ford Ranger. The listing was discovered in a parts-lookup configurator at Canadian Tire and was first reported by Off-Road.com. Aside from a few nonspecific leaks and a handful of camouflaged spy photos, Ford has done a commendable job of keeping a lid on the precise details pertaining to the new Ford Bronco.
It's time for your oven to take a vacation. From Delish
Should an enemy submarine surface well beyond undersea or surface drone detection range and send intelligence to attack platforms - US Navy platforms could be vulnerable in some instances. Fortified by targeting data from well beyond the horizon, enemy subs, planes and ships might, in this case, be well-positioned for a coordinated strike. However, should an interwoven web of Navy surveillance assets track and share vital information, coordinated surface, air and undersea drones could sustain an unprecedented advantage -- and a new attack synergy could actually begin to transform maritime warfare.Enemy mines, surface ships, small boats and submarines might be detected more quickly, but, perh...
In this special series, LGBT celebrities and public figures talk to Tim Teeman about the Stonewall Riots and their legacy—see more here. Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is running to be the Democratic Party's candidate in the 2020 presidential election. Buttigieg did not respond to these four questions sent to him by The Daily Beast: When and how did you first hear about the Stonewall Riots and what did you make of them?
US drones have been a key tool in conflicts against insurgent organizations such as the Taliban and the Islamic State group, but Iran's downing of one of the aircraft highlights their limitations against more sophisticated adversaries. "I believe sophisticated air defenses will continue to have good chances to shoot down an aircraft like an RQ-4 whenever it is in position to do meaningful surveillance of their territories or other assets," he said, referring to the type of drone brought down by Iran last week near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
The White House will block Kellyanne Conway from testifying before a House panel about allegations by a government watchdog that she violated the Hatch Act, increasing the likelihood of another subpoena battle between the two branches of government. White House lawyers on Monday rejected the House Committee on Oversight and Reform's request for Ms Conway to appear at a hearing on Wednesday. House Democrats counter, however, that the White House has no right to claim executive privilege or immunity for Ms Conway because the alleged violations deal with her personal actions – not her duties advising the president or working in the West Wing.
A witness who dropped stunning testimony at the war crimes trial of a decorated Navy SEAL by telling the court he had killed an Islamic State captive in Iraq in 2017 — not his accused platoon chief — could now face charges of perjury, according to the Navy. The Navy's legal adviser to the commander overseeing the court-martial of Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher notified the witness's lawyer, Brian Ferguson, in an email late Tuesday that the testimony Corey Scott gave last week could be used against him if he lied on the stand or gave a false statement. Cmdr. Tam Lawrence, Naval Special Warfare spokesperson, said Scott was granted immunity in exchange for the promise of truthful testimony.
The United Arab Emirates appeared to distance itself from U.S. claims that pinned attacks on oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Iran. Honestly we can't point the blame at any country because we don't have evidence,” Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday in Moscow. If there is a country that has the evidence, then I'm convinced that the international community will listen to it.
Salt Lake City police are searching for a University of Utah senior who has been missing for a week, though at this point, they do not suspect foul play. Mackenzie Lueck, 23, landed at Salt Lake City International Airport early on June 17 after visiting family in California. She took a Lyft to Hatch Park in North Salt Lake and met up with another person in a car, police said.
WASHINGTON/SEATTLE, June 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has identified a new risk that Boeing Co must address on its 737 MAX before the grounded jet can return to service, the agency said on Wednesday. The FAA did not elaborate on the latest setback for Boeing, which has been working to get its best-selling airplane back in the air following a worldwide grounding in March in the wake of two deadly crashes within five months. The new issue means Boeing will not conduct a certification test flight until July 8 in a best-case scenario, the sources said, but one source cautioned it could face further delays beyond that.
About 100 of the more than 300 migrant children who were moved Monday from a detention facility where conditions had been described as “unconscionable” were moved back to the camp on Tuesday. Around the same time, acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders, whose agency runs the much-criticized operation housing migrant children who have been separated from their parents, announced his resignation. On Monday, Rep. Veronica Escobar — who represents the El Paso, Texas, area — said that the government had moved most of the children from a facility in the small town of Clint, Texas, that housed migrants as young as a few months old. Over the last week, there have been reports from lawyers and physicians who visited the camps that many of the children were dirty, some of them ill, and that young children were being left in the care of detainees themselves, sometimes only 8 years old.
If you rewind the clock back a bit to before Samsung's disastrous aborted launch of its Galaxy Fold smartphone that was supposed to have been in April, you may recall the company's lofty ambitious that looked beyond the first iteration of this new device. We were hearing estimates last year that Samsung wanted to start the Galaxy Fold's initial production run at a minimum of 1 million units and that the Fold also wouldn't be a one-off. That the company, in other words, was hoping to release a new version of the foldable phone every year, the same way it does with its Galaxy flagship devices.
On Monday, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders announced a new proposal to cancel all student loan debt and to fund free four-year public and community colleges. Altogether, the proposal would cost $2.2 trillion over 10 years — making rival candidate Elizabeth Warren's radical $1.25 trillion over 10 years loan forgiveness plan look relatively moderate. As appealing as it might sound, though, Sanders' proposal is a slap in the face for college graduates like me who had planned ahead, compromised on our choices and struggled in order to limit our student loan debt.
NASA's Curiosity Rover last week detected the highest ever levels of the colorless, odorless gas over the course of its seven year mission on the Red Planet, raising hopes it could be evidence of the existence of microbial life. Scientists have tracked a seasonal rise and fall in background methane levels but haven't been able to establish a pattern for the transient plumes. "We're more motivated than ever to keep measuring and put our brains together to figure out how methane behaves in the Martian atmosphere," said Ashwin Vasavada, Curiosity's project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
The recent oil tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman reinforce the need to reestablish a highly visible U.S. naval deterrent in the Middle East. For eight months last year, no aircraft carrier strike group plied the region, the longest such interruption this millennium. With the United States needing a more robust posture against Iran and confronting renewed challenges in Asia and Europe, several immediate measures and concerted longer-term efforts are critical to ensure America has the carriers it needs.
The Latest on the offer by a former U of I student to locate body in exchange for a life sentence (all times local): 3:25 p.m. The family of a scholar from China killed by a former University of Illinois doctoral student says they're aware he offered to divulge where her remains were but weren't convinced the body would actually be found. A Wednesday statement from Yingying Zhang's relatives says they were "leery" of Brendt Christensen's offer "because he had lied so many times in the past."
“Today's decision can only cause one to wonder which cases the court will overrule next,” dissenting Justice Stephen Breyer wrote last month when the court overruled a 1979 precedent to say that states are immune from private suits in another state's courts. “Well, that didn't take long,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote 39 days later when the court overturned part of a 1985 ruling and said people could go directly to federal court to claim that a government regulation unconstitutionally took private property without compensation. Both of those were 5-4 decisions, with Chief Justice John Roberts and the other Republican appointees -- Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- in the majority.
A federal safety official put aircraft regulators on notice Monday, calling for further regulations on parachute operations after a skydiving plane crash in Hawaii killed 11 people. The National Transportation Safety Board identified safety concerns more than a decade ago, but board member Jennifer Homendy said the Federal Aviation Administration hasn't acted. Are we trying to put the FAA on notice for this?
The single day sale through RM Sotheby's is set for September 28th in Ohio. John Dixon's obsession with the Porsche models started when he was passed by a 911 in his muscle car in high school - from there, he was blown away by the car. The Taj Ma Garaj collection is now considered to be one of the most eclectic Porsche and Volkswagen collections, along with Porsche unobtainium, rare literature, collectibles, engines, and an assortment of arcade ephemera.
Stephanie Grisham, who has been first lady Melania Trump's spokesperson since March 2017, will be the next White House press secretary, replacing Sarah Sanders. Excited to have Stephanie working for both sides of the @WhiteHouse,” Melania Trump wrote. The wording implied that Grisham will also continue to serve in her current role, but there was no immediate confirmation.
