Trump administration puts skimpy health insurance plans in place

Trump administration puts skimpy health insurance plans in placeHealth providers, insurers and medical groups have warned that the plans could drive up premiums and make insurance unaffordable for some people by siphoning off healthy consumers who want cheaper coverage, leaving behind a sicker patient pool with higher medical costs in Obamacare plans. The finalized rule is the Trump administration’s most recent effort to provide consumers with alternatives to Obamacare, former Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement.

U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right now

U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right nowIn times of crisis, one would hope the U.S. Department of State would know how to respond accordingly. Sadly, not this time. On Tuesday, rather than showing any compassion for the nearly 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents at the border due to the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, the State Department decided to hold a fun Facebook Live. The almost 50-minute-long "Family Travel Hacks" Q&A encouraged people to ask about "applying for U.S. passports for kids, document requirements, and tips to make sure your vacation this summer goes smoothly." Though, predictably, many used the opportunity to share their upset at the fact that families are being separated at the border. SEE ALSO: 7 activist groups supporting families at the border that need your help right now Below, you can watch the full video, where two white representatives of the State Department — Carl and Kim, who work in Passport Services — happily talk about traveling families like it's no big deal.  Both Carl and Kim go on to joyously explain they're each parents who have had great experiences with obtaining passports for their children — something I'm sure can't be said by the parents of the distraught children who are currently being held in detention centers.  They even thought it wise to hold up their children's passport photos in admiration SEVERAL TIMES. Here are just some of the many comments from angry and appalled people watching the live stream, wondering how the U.S. State Department could be so upbeat and tone deaf at a time like this. Needless to say, people were NOT pleased with the timing of this Facebook Live.  If you too, are tired of the lack of action being taken to to help families at the border, check out our guide on how to help.

Malaysia murder case linked to Najib 'may be re-opened'

Malaysia murder case linked to Najib 'may be re-opened'A probe into the sensational murder of a young woman linked to Malaysia's ousted leader could be re-opened, a lawyer said Tuesday, after a meeting between the victim's father and the attorney-general. Altantuya Shaariibuu was shot dead and her body blown up with military-grade plastic explosives near Kuala Lumpur in 2006. The Mongolian's murder was the most shocking aspect in a scandal involving allegations that an associate of recently ousted premier Najib Razak arranged huge kickbacks for the purchase of French submarines in 2002.

Syrian, Iraqi forces say U.S. bombs military border positions, U.S. deniesBy Angus McDowall BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian state media said on Monday that U.S.-led coalition aircraft had bombed a Syrian army position near the Iraqi border, causing deaths and injuries, but the U.S. military denied it was responsible. The attack took place in al-Harra, southeast of the town of Albu Kamal, state news agency SANA said, citing a military source. A commander in the alliance fighting alongside Damascus told Reuters that drones that were "probably American" had bombed the positions of Iraqi factions between Albu Kamal and Tanf, as well as Syrian military positions.

Former Israeli government minister charged with spying for Iran

Former Israeli government minister charged with spying for IranA former Israeli government minister, once imprisoned for trying to smuggle drugs, is back behind bars after being charged with spying for archenemy Iran, the country's internal security agency said Monday. The Shin Bet, the Israeli security agency, said Gonen Segev was extradited from Guinea and arrested upon arrival in Israel last month on suspicion of "committing offenses of assisting the enemy in war and spying against the state of Israel." It said Mr Segev, a former energy minister, acted as an agent for Iranian intelligence and relayed information "connected to the energy market and security sites in Israel including buildings and officials in political and security organizations." Lawyers representing Mr Segev issued a statement that did not reject or accept the accusations, only saying that the indictment "portrays a different picture" than what the Shin Bet says. Mr Segev, who served in the Cabinet under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in the mid-1990s, was arrested in 2004 for attempting to smuggle 32,000 Ecstasy tablets from the Netherlands to Israel using an expired diplomatic passport.  Former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin speaks with former energy minister Gonen Segev Credit: REUTERS/GPO A former doctor whose medical license was revoked, Mr Segev was released from prison in 2007 and had been living in Africa in recent years. The Shin Bet said Mr Segev met with his operators twice in Iran, and also met with Iranian agents in hotels and apartments around the world. Mr Segev was given a "secret communications system to encrypt messages" with his operators. The statement said that Mr Segev maintained connections with Israeli civilians who had ties to the country's security and foreign relations. It said he acted to connect them with Iranian agents who posed as businessmen. Israel and Iran are bitter enemies, and the allegations against Mr Segev are extremely grave. Israel considers Iran to be its biggest threat, citing Iranian calls for Israel's destruction, Iran's support for hostile militant groups like Hezbollah and its development of long-range missiles.

Americans own 40 percent of world's firearms: studyAmericans make up only four percent of the global population but they own 40 percent of the world's firearms, a new study said Monday. There are more than one billion firearms in the world but 85 percent of those are in the hands of civilians, with the remainder held by law enforcement and the military, according to the Small Arms Survey. The survey, produced by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, says it bases its estimates based on multiple sources, including civilian firearms registration data from 133 countries and territories and survey results in 56 countries.

Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on Mars

Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on MarsCould a volcanic eruption be the key to unlocking the mysterious geological history of Mars? Back in the 1960s, NASA's Mariner spacecraft discovered an extremely large and unusually soft rock formation. The makeup of the mass, now known as the Medusa Fossae formation, stumped researchers for decades because they were never able to determine how it got there.  SEE ALSO: Tiny NASA satellite bound for Mars snaps photo of Earth from thousands of miles away But now, new research seems to answer that question — and maybe many others.  More than 3 billion years ago, extreme volcanic eruptions on Mars dropped the huge deposit near the Martian equator, according to the new study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets. A 13-kilometer (8-mile) diameter crater being infilled by the Medusae Fossae Formation.Image: High Resolution Stereo Camera/European Space AgencyThe Medusa Fossae is about one fifth the size of the United States.  “This is a massive deposit, not only on a Martian scale, but also in terms of the solar system, because we do not know of any other deposit that is like this,” planetary scientist Lujendra Ojha, the lead author of the new study, said in a statement. Ojha and his colleagues used gravity data from spacecraft orbiting Mars to measure the formation density. Through this, they were able to determine that the rock was unusually porous, allowing them to rule out other potential compositions like ice.  On a basic level, the formation is a bunch of hills and mounds of sedimentary rock but because much of Mars’s history is shrouded in mystery, a finding like this is huge.  An isolated hill in the Medusae Fossae Formation. The effect of wind erosion on this hill is evident by its streamlined shape.Image: High Resolution Stereo Camera/European Space Agency.Eruptions of the magnitude suggested by the study would also have an enormous impact on the planet's climate as well. A considerable amount of “climate-altering” gases like hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide accompany most volcanic eruptions and would have spit out enough water to cover the red planet in a global ocean, the study says.  These findings paint a better picture of what habitability on Mars would look like, as well as the usefulness of gravity surveys.  “Future gravity surveys could help distinguish between ice, sediments and igneous rocks in the upper crust of the planet,” co-author and planetary scientist Kevin Lewis explained.   WATCH: NASA is attempting to fly a helicopter on Mars for the first time

Rising seas could flood 300,000 US homes and make coastal communities ‘unviable’Hundreds of thousands of homes in the United States could face persistent flooding as climate change pushes sea levels higher, according to a new report. Sea level rise is expected to be one of the most tangible effects of a changing climate, as accumulating greenhouse gases fuel a steady rise in global temperatures that in turn raise the level of oceans - threatening low-lying and coastal areas. A new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists quantified the risk by comparing areas already known to be at high flood risk against data from the real estate website Zillow.
