    Safeguarding Egypt's share of the Nile, on which the country relies for industry and drinking water as well as farming, is now at the top of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's agenda as he begins a second term. At the same time, authorities are finally tackling widespread illegal growing of the water-intensive rice crop, showing a sense of urgency that even climate change and rapid population growth has failed to foster. The crackdown means Egypt will likely be a rice importer in 2019 after decades of being a major exporter, rice traders say. Cairo has decreed that 724,000 feddans (750,000 acres) of rice can be planted this year, which grain traders estimate is less than half of the 1.8 million feddans actually cultivated in 2017 – far in excess of the officially allotted 1.1 million feddans. Police have started raiding farmers' homes and jailing them until they pay outstanding fines from years back. "The police came to my house at three in the morning and took me to the station to pay the fine," said Mohamed Abdelkhaleq, head of the farming association in Kafr Ziada, some 125 km (80 miles) north of Cairo in Beheira governorate. "Even if the fine is 1 Egyptian pound , they'll come to your house." Three other farmers reported similar experiences and said this year they would not plant rice. Reda Abdelaziz said some people have become afraid to leave the village.

    Lamborn's attorneys argued that the residency requirement is unconstitutional. But the Colorado Supreme Court said it lacks jurisdiction to rule on the constitutionality of the rule and said he'd have to take his case up with the U.S. Supreme Court. Ryan Call, an attorney for Lamborn's campaign, told Politico the congressman intends to do that. "We believe, quite frankly, denying a sitting congressman the right to participate in a primary election where the residency of the circulator denies the otherwise valid petition signatures is unconstitutional," Call said. "We intend to file an action in federal district court, and there are a number of cases that find that the residency requirement for circulators as unconstitutional."

    Perhaps Beijing’s breaches of Taiwan’s sea and air borders in intermittent circumnavigations since 2017 are to blame for widespread antagonism among Taiwanese, particular young people, observers with the pro-independence think-tank noted. One of Beijing’s favorite platitudes on the issue of Taiwan is that “blood is thicker than water.” When reporting Taiwan affairs, mainland papers are mandated to report the “fact” that the island’s politics have been hijacked by a small bunch of obstinate separatists and that the mainstay of society is pro-unification. But the situation on the ground appears to be quite the opposite, if a survey by a pro-independence think-tank is to be believed. Nearly 70% of respondents made it clear in a recent survey conducted by the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy that they would either join the army or put up resistance in their own ways if mainland China were to attempt to annex Taiwan by force.

    France Had Some Big Problems Firing Missiles at Syria While U.S. and UK forces pummeled three suspected chemical weapons sites across Syria, the French military reportedly had some issues pulling its weight. The three naval cruise missiles fired from the French frigate Languedoc were initially intended to come from a different French frigate whose first salvo simply “did not fire,” French Joint Chief of Staff spokesman Col. Patrick Steiger told Defense News. Steiger stated the cause of the misfire was currently unknown; Navy Recognition notes that the launch constituted the first time that the French military had ever actually fired its new MdCN (or “Missile de Croisiere Naval”) naval cruise missiles. The French military currently has three advanced European multi-purpose frigates (FREMM) in its fleet, according to Le Mamouth: the Aquitaine, the Provence, and the Languedoc. It’s unclear whether it was the Aquitaine or Provence that experienced the misfire. More at: https://www.yahoo.com/news/france-had-big-problems-firing-112400499.html

    Last month, Atlanta's city government was hit with a ransomware attack that caused courthouse documents and services like payment processing to become inaccessible. The ransom demand was approximately $51,000 but according to the city's Department of Procurement, Atlanta has spent much more than that on efforts to rectify the situation. It appears that firms Secureworks and Ernst & Young were paid $650,000 and $600,000, respectively, for emergency services while Edelman was paid $50,000 for crisis communication services. Overall, the funds seemingly applied to the ransomware attack response add up to approximately $2.7 million. Atlanta .gov ransomware attack costs pic.twitter.com/xgQEpbeZPZ — Ryan Naraine (@ryanaraine) April 23, 2018 It's unclear whether Atlanta paid or tried to pay the ransom, but evidence suggests city officials didn't attempt to or were unsuccessful. The affected services are still not fully up and running and ahead of the ransom deadline, the attackers took down the communication portal that would have been used to pay the fee.

    The far greater concern for Israel's future is the rapid growth of the Bedouin and Orthodox Jewish Haredi populations, which together could substantially alter the country's demographic makeup, its economic position and its security strategy.A Growing ProblemThough Israel once struggled with a small population, generous immigration policies have exceeded all expectations for boosting the number of the country's inhabitants. Since the turn of the 21st century, in fact, the rate of the population's expansion has posed a problem for Israel, at least from an economic standpoint. Gross domestic product growth has not broken 2 percent in nearly 20 years, and the country has the highest poverty rate of any Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development member. The growth of the Bedouin and the Haredi populations will only add to the strain on the economy. The two groups make up the poorest and least educated segment of Israeli society, and they have the highest rate of unemployment. They are also Israel's fastest-growing populations; projections suggest that by 2059, the Haredi alone will account for one-quarter of all Israelis. Cultural values play a large role not only in the groups' high birthrates — Haredi women have an average of 6.5 children each, while Bedouin women have an average of six — but also in their socio-economic position. And in the long term, these values could undermine Israel's prosperity, as well as its traditional strategy of using technology to overcome its geographic weaknesses. When Cultures CollideFor the Bedouins, conservative cultural norms discourage women from joining the workforce or staying in school. The Israeli educational system, moreover, has struggled to accommodate the group's nomadic lifestyle. As a result, Bedouin men are underskilled compared with the rest of the Israeli Arab population. Changing these circumstances would require forcing Israeli Bedouins to settle down in fixed locations and to reconsider the male-dominated culture that typically keeps girls out of school and confines women to the home. But as nearby countries such as the United Arab Emirates have learned with their own Bedouin populations, revising tradition is a decadeslong process. Restructuring the Haredis' cultural values will be more challenging still. And because the Orthodox Jewish group is much larger — at 1.1 million people, compared with 200,000 among the Bedouins — changing their mores will be more important.

    A report by Fars News provides a different perspective, suggesting heavy gunfire at the palace of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in Riyadh Reports said the king and his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, have been evacuated to a bunker at an airbase in the city that is under the protection of the US troops. While Saudi officials and media are quiet over the incident, there are contradicting reports over the incident. Witnesses and residents of the neighborhoods near the palace said a coup is underway, while other reports said a drone has been flying over the palace. Saudi opposition members claimed that “a senior ground force officer has led a raid on the palace to kill the king and the crown prince”. Videos also show that a growing number of armored vehicles have deployed around the palace. ‘Bin Salman’s special guard’ has taken charge of security in the capital. Riyadh’s sky has been closed to all civil and military flights as military helicopters from ‘Bin Salman’s special guard’ are flying over the palace. There is yet no report on any possible casualties.

    Increasingly it appears that the recent US coalition missile strikes on Syria have utterly backfired: instead of weakening Syria or degrading its military capabilities, the attack may have actually served to strengthen Syria's defenses. Since the massive strike which involved the US, UK, and France launching over 100 cruise missiles, Russia is rumored to be moving forward on delivery of its advanced S-300 missile defense system, which would be a monumental upgrade allowing Syrian defenses to far surpass current capabilities which utilize the Soviet-made S-125 and S-200 air defense systems. Crucially, S-300s have a range of up to 150-200 kilometers (or 120 miles), bringing Syrian deterrent reach easily to within Lebanese airspace (as Israel has routinely struck targets inside Syria while firing over "neutral" Lebanese airspace in recent years), and could even extend airspace coverage into Israel itself. Could this be the reason for some major behind-the-scenes diplomatic scrambling? On Monday VOA News chief White House correspondent Steve Herman announced that US CENTCOM commander General Joseph Votel is in the midst of "a secret and unprecedented visit to Israel." Knowledge of the "secret" visit was based on exclusive footage broadcast by Israel's Kann News, which first reported, "the commander of the American Central Command arrived for the first time to Israel, and met with senior security officials, including the Chief of Staff." Israeli public broadcaster reports @CENTCOM commander General Votel making a secret and unprecedented visit to #Israel. https://t.co/BbhiThKMH2 — Steve Herman (@W7VOA) April 23, 2018 No doubt the potential for what weapons experts have commonly described as the "exceptionally advanced" Russian-supplied S-300 in Israel's backyard is making Tel Aviv and its allies nervous. Israel has repeatedly called delivery of the S-300s a "red line" for which it would act, however, plans for just such a scenario could be hastening.

    The Trump administration is seeking the dismissal of a suit alleging the nonprofit helmed by former president Jimmy Carter has used taxpayer funding to provide material support to international terrorist groups, including Hamas. The Zionist Advocacy Center, which filed the recently unsealed suit in 2015, alleges the Carter Center received more than $30 million in taxpayer grants while violating federal statutes barring it from using the cash to provide material support to terror groups. The plaintiffs maintain the Carter Center has violated the law by hosting designated terrorists at is facilities, as well as by providing various forms of assistance to the Palestinian terror group Hamas and other known terror entities, according to recently unsealed court documents. The Department of Justice surprised pro-Israel insiders recently when it moved to have the case dismissed on the grounds it is too expensive to prosecute, according to court filings the administration had requested remain secret. A hearing on the dismissal motion will occur on April 25, though legal experts handling the case are hoping to convince the DOJ to reverse its opinion beforehand, according to those familiar with the proceedings. Evidence presented in the case purports to show the Carter Center accepted millions in government grants while falsely certifying it was not violating prohibitions on providing material support to terror groups, which include a broad range of factors including lodgings, expert advice, and other types of support. Former President Carter's ongoing and well-documented interactions with Hamas and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are tantamount to material support for terror groups, the suit alleges citing evidence Carter hosted these officials at his Center's offices. This also includes providing services and advice to Hamas and other individuals and organizations designated as terrorists by the U.S. government. While the Trump administration's lawyers admit in their motion to dismiss that Carter has in fact met with designated terrorists and terror groups, they are seeking to have the case tossed because it would be too expensive to adjudicate in court. "Representatives of the Carter Center have engaged in discussions and meetings with members of Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine," the government's motion states.

    South Korea has halted its anti-North Korea propaganda broadcasts at the border ahead of its summit Friday with Pyongyang.

The decision was confirmed by South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense, which did not state whether the broadcasts would continue after South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader meet in the border village of Panmunjom. “We hope this decision will lead both Koreas to stop mutual criticism and propaganda against each other and also contribute in creating peace and a new beginning,” the defense ministry said.

    A Facebook page entitled “Kill Trump, Hang Him, Hunt Him” that was reported to the social media giant did not violate its community standards, emphasizing once again the double standard between left-wing and conservative content. A screenshot of the report was posted by comedian Owen Benjamin, who was banned earlier this month for making a joke about gun control activist David Hogg. The page that advocated murdering Trump was reported for “hate speech,” but after investigating, Facebook said the content did not violate their community standards. Facebook’s failure to remove the page illustrates yet again how the company is behaving in a partisan manner. Facebook routinely removes content and pages that criticize Islam, feminism and the left in general. Earlier this month, the company had to apologize for removing the right-wing Voice of Europe page.

    The Republican chairmen of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced Monday that the Justice Department has agreed to provide them with documents related to the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. The deal was struck after Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., met this month with the U.S. attorney, John Lausch, who has been selected to respond to Republican demands for documents. "We look forward to reviewing the information to better understand the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017," Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a joint statement. "Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken."

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday warned the “caravan” of Central American migrants arriving at the southern U.S. border that they could face prosecution, detention and deportation, as President Trump called on the agency to block the group. “DHS continues to monitor the remnants of the ‘caravan’ of individuals headed to our Southern border with the apparent intention of entering the United States illegally,” Nielsen said in a statement. “A sovereign nation that cannot—or worse, chooses not—to defend its borders will soon cease to be a sovereign nation. The Trump administration is committed to enforcing our immigration laws – whether persons are part of this ‘caravan’ or not.” Nielsen outlined immigration law in her statement, warning those attempting to enter illegally. “If members of the ‘caravan’ enter the country illegally, they will be referred for prosecution for illegal entry in accordance with existing law,” Nielsen said. “For those seeking asylum, all individuals may be detained while their claims are adjudicated efficiently and expeditiously, and those found not to have a claim will be promptly removed from the United States.” DHS and the Justice Department have developed a “partnership” to “ensure that all cases and claims are adjudicated properly.” Nielsen said that included sending U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asylum officers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement attorneys, and Justice Department immigration judges and prosecutors to the U.S.-Mexico border. “If you enter the United States illegally, let me be clear: you have broken the law. And we will enforce the law through prosecution of illegal border crossers,” Nielsen said.

    President Trump has instructed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deny reported caravans of asylum-seekers entry into the United States. A caravan of over 1,000 mostly Central American refugees attempted to travel by foot, bus and train to the southern U.S. border in hopes of being granted asylum. After President Trump threatened to cut off foreign aid to "Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen," Mexico agreed to disband the group. Despite their efforts, a group of around 50 asylum seekers have made it to the US border, seeking entry at the Tijuana crossing into California. “Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naive! WALL,” tweeted Trump.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 23, 2018 Trump then added in a new tweet that the United States may require Mexico to take active measures to stop groups of migrants from Central America and elsewhere - which may be a "condition of the new NAFTA Agreement." Mexico, whose laws on immigration are very tough, must stop people from going through Mexico and into the U.S. We may make this a condition of the new NAFTA Agreement. Our Country cannot accept what is happening! Also, we must get Wall funding fast. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 23, 2018

    Scientists have discovered a new structure inside human cells: a never-before-seen twisted “knot” of DNA. Dubbed the “i-motif,” this four-stranded knot looks totally different from the iconic double helix. A team of researchers have homed in on these shapes in living human cells, which were previously studied only under artificial conditions in the lab. The scientists think the structure, which was detailed in a scientific paper published Monday in Nature Chemistry, might have crucial implications for the way DNA is “read.” These shapes, researchers think, could affect the way genetic instructions are recognized within the body. “In the knot structure, C letters on the same strand of DNA bind to each other,” said research co-lead Marcel Dinger in the statement. “This is very different from a double helix, where ‘letters’ on opposite strands recognize each other, and where Cs bind to Gs .” More at: https://www.yahoo.com/news/twisted-apos-knot-apos-human-165834930.html

    The U.S. softened its position on sanctions against Russian metals giant United Co. Rusal, sparking a record plunge in aluminum prices. For the first time, the U.S. Treasury discussed a path for lifting the sanctions on Rusal, saying it would provide relief if Oleg Deripaska relinquished control. It also extended the deadline for companies to wind down dealings with the Russian aluminum producer by almost five months. Rusal petitioned to be removed from the sanctions list and Treasury granted the extension while it considers the appeal, according to a statement from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “Rusal has felt the impact of U.S. sanctions because of its entanglement with Oleg Deripaska, but the U.S. government is not targeting the hardworking people who depend on Rusal and its subsidiaries,” Mnuchin said. Aluminum plunged in response as traders speculated that supply disruptions could ease. Prices fell as much as 9.4 percent, the most ever. U.S. metal producers also dropped, with Alcoa Inc. sliding 12 percent. More at: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...eripaska-sells

    The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday afternoon that GOP incumbent Rep. Doug Lamborn can’t appear on the ballot in the 2018 Republican primary. The court said Ryan Tipple, one of the petitioners Lamborn hired to collect the the required signatures to qualify, was not a bona fide resident of Colorado, which is required by election law, making the signatures invalid. “We recognize the gravity of this conclusion, but Colorado law does not permit us to conclude otherwise,” the court said in the ruling. A group of Republicans in Lamborn’s district filed the lawsuit, questioning whether people Lamborn had hired lived in the state, and therefore the validity of the signatures. The plaintiffs argued that the petition circulators, while registered Colorado voters, only had residence in the state for the purpose of working for Lamborn.
