Gulf braces for tough times over oil price plunge

Emirati youths in traditional outfits sit with falcons near a Bedouin tent late on October 28, 2014 during a festival in the city of Al-Ain celebrating traditional cultureGulf countries are bracing for tough times as vital oil revenues fall and after they missed a golden opportunity to diversify their economies in a decade of unprecedented windfalls, analysts say. The six nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) -- Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates -- could soon start reeling from falling oil prices, which have dropped by half from their 2014 highs to around $60 a barrel. Pumping about 17.5 million barrels per day, GCC countries are forecast to lose at least half their oil revenues, or around $350 billion a year, at current price levels.

Iraq Kurds press fightback as top jihadist reported killed

A Kurdish Peshmerga fighter stands behind sandbags at a checkpoint in Zummar city in the northern Iraqi governorate of Nineveh, on December 18, 2014Kurdish forces pressed their biggest offensive against the Islamic State group so far Friday, buoyed by US reports that jihadist supremo Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's top aide in Iraq has been killed. Kurdish peshmerga forces were securing the surroundings of Mount Sinjar after breaking a months-old jihadist siege of the northwestern region while fighting was also reported near the city of Tall Afar further east. The Pentagon said Thursday that US strikes had killed several top leaders of the group that proclaimed a "caliphate" straddling Syria and Iraq six months ago and rose to be the world's most feared jihadist organisation.

US-Cuba thaw likely to shake up baseball Major Leagues

Cuban players celebrate after winning the Gold medal against Nicaragua, at the XXII Central American and Caribbean Games, in Veracruz, Mexico on November 21, 2014A seismic shift in relations with Cuba had many in US baseball salivating Thursday at the prospect of a flood of talent from the Caribbean country where America's "national pastime" is a passion. Major League Baseball made a measured response to the news on Wednesday that the United States and Cuba would end five decades of Cold War hostility and move to revive diplomatic ties and ease a crippling US trade embargo. The sanctions, and Cuba's refusal to allow players there to seek employment in the United States, have made for an arduous path for Cuban baseballers who defy their government and seek to pursue careers in America. Amid speculation that the trickle of talent from Cuba could become a torrent, and the country could surpass the Dominican Republic and Venezuela as top Latin American sources for Major League players, MLB and the players' union were cautious.

Curiosity Rover's Critics are Missing the Point (Op-Ed)

Curiosity Rover's Critics are Missing the Point (Op-Ed)Marc Kaufman has written about science and international affairs for more than three decades, primarily for The Washington Postand The Philadelphia Inquirer.Kaufman's latest book is "Mars Up Close: Inside the Curiosity Mission" (National Geographic, 2014).Kaufman contributed this essay to Space.com's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights. To the worldwide legion of enthusiasts following the trek of the Curiosity rover across Mars, the announcement last week that Gale Crater had featured lakes and rivers for potentially tens of millions of years was another important moment in the evolving story of Mars as a once-habitable planet. It's a story line that Curiosity has aggressively developed and now owns, and it is arguably the biggest story in space exploration today. Yet when project scientist John Grotzinger described the team's newest findings, there was a defensiveness of sorts.

Private Moon-Drilling Mission Raises Over $1 Million via Crowdfunding

Private Moon-Drilling Mission Raises Over $1 Million via CrowdfundingAn ambitious private space exploration project that aims to land a moon-drilling probe on the lunar surface by 2024 now has the money it needs, thanks to a crowdfunding effort that raised more than $1 million for the mission. The novel Lunar Mission One project surpassed its fundraising goal of nearly 600,000 English pounds (about $945,000) this week on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Lunar Missions Ltd., the United Kingdom-based company funding the project, hopes the mission will advance understanding of how the moon formed and provide useful insights for future moon missions. The Lunar Mission One project is designed to land a probe on the moon that is capable of drilling at least 65 feet (20 meters) below the lunar surface, and hopefully reach a target depth of 328 feet (100 m) inside the moon.
