The Trump administration has announced it no longer views Israel settlements in the occupied West Bank to be a violation of international law, in another blow to possible Israel-Palestine peace negotiations. On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced a reversal to the U.S. position, putting the U.S. at odds with the international community. A U.N. resolution in 2016 declared the settlements a “flagrant violation” of international law. Israel’s embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed Pompeo’s announcement as a historic day for Israel, but Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat condemned the U.S. decision. Soon after Mike Pompeo announced the new U.S. policy, the U.S. Embassy in Israel issued a travel warning to Americans in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. From Washington, D.C., we speak with Noura Erakat, a Palestinian human rights attorney and legal scholar. She is an assistant professor at Rutgers University and the author of “Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine.”

Thousands marched across Bolivia Monday to demand the resignation of Jeanine Áñez, the right-wing senator who declared herself president of Bolivia last week after longtime socialist President Evo Morales resigned under pressure from the military. The coup d’état has thrown Bolivia into crisis, with violence across the country leaving at least 23 dead. On Friday, the military gunned down nine pro-Morales protesters outside Cochabamba, where indigenous people took to the streets again on Monday. Thousands more marched to the presidential palace in La Paz. The wave of protests are condemning the spike in anti-indigenous violence under interim President Áñez and demanding the return of Evo Morales. Áñez has a history of using racist, anti-indigenous language, and last week she issued a decree protecting the military from prosecution for violent acts and said that Morales would face prosecution if he returned to Bolivia. Morales is Bolivia’s first indigenous president, and Bolivia has a majority indigenous population. We speak with Sacha Llorenti, Bolivian ambassador to the United Nations since 2012. “We are going through not just a coup d’état, but a violent one,” Llorenti says.

El Mediterráneo se desecó hace seis millones de años y volvió a inundarse de nuevo, cerca de setecientos mil años después. Para saber más: http://bit.ly/1fNnq6x

Six million years ago, the Mediterranean Sea nearly dried up during what is called the “Messinian Salinity Crisis”. This movie shows a physics-based computer simulation of the breach of Gibraltar and the flood of the basin. A similar event 10,000 years ago, in the then populated Black Sea basin, may have been the source of the Noah’s Arc narrative.

The misuse and overuse of antimicrobials, including antibiotics,
is causing antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
Every time we use antimicrobials to treat infections
– in people, animals and plants –
these germs have a chance to adapt to the treatment,
making those medicines less effective over time.
This is why farmers have a key role in fighting AMR.
Are you a farmer? Here is what you need to do!
Clean often to get rid of germs that make animals and people sick.
Separate animals when they get sick to help prevent the infection from spreading.
Keep animal feed dry and stored safely away from potential sources of germs.
Avoid stress for your animals.
Ensure your animals have good nutrition.
Seek veterinary advice before treating your animals.
Without these treatments, people, animals and plants
are at risk of dying from infections.
We all can take action now to keep antimicrobials working as they should!

How big is the universe … compared with a grain of sand? Subscribe to the Guardian HERE: http://bitly.com/UvkFpD ‘You’ll never get your head around how big the universe is,’ warns astronomer Pete Edwards of the University of Durham in this film about measuring astronomical distances. ‘There are as many stars in the universe as there are grains of sand on the Earth.’ So how far is a light year? And supposing our galaxy were the size of a grain of sand, how big would the universe be?

Lingering bushfire smoke has made Sydney’s air hazardous, with emergency crews issuing health warnings for those with breathing issues.

People in Sydney woke up to a city shrouded in smoke on Tuesday, as scores of bushfires rage across the region.
Strong winds overnight brought smoke from fires inland, pushing the air quality in Australia’s largest city to beyond “hazardous” levels at times.
On social media, locals have described hazy skies and the stench of smoke in their homes.
About five million people live in the state capital of New South Wales, which has been affected for weeks by fires.
Six people have died in bushfires in the state’s north since October.
