Billionaire Richard Branson is teaming up with diver Fabien Cousteau to explore the depths of the Great Blue Hole further. Found off the coast of Belize, it is thought to have been an enormous cave thousands of years ago. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is a widely acclaimed dive spot but is yet to be fully mapped. The goal of the probe is to explore further and potentially chart the abysses of the Great Blue Hole. The endeavour will be filmed by a team of explorers and scientists along with a team from the Aquatica Foundation. The entire ordeal will take up two weeks, allowing researchers to collect data to help reconstruct a life-sized model of the Great Blue Hole.⁣

About 90 kilometres north of Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, lies the abandoned city of Chernobyl. What was once a booming town is now an abandoned radioactive wasteland. Its former residents found employment at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant 14 kilometres away. On April 26th of 1986, a power surge during a routine test had caused a series of events that lead up to the infamous explosion of reactor number four. The blast released massive amounts of radioactive material into the air which was then carried all over Europe by winds. As a result, 31 people died in direct relation to the accident. Furthermore, the World Health Organization believes that around 4000 deaths around Europe can be linked back to radiation exposure from Chernobyl. This was the worst ever nuclear disaster in history and one of only two to be listed as a level 7 disaster on the International Nuclear Event Scale. ⁣⠀

8TH SENATE DIDNT PERFORM TO CAPACITY - LAWAN

The new Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, on Friday assured that the Ninth Senate will move fast to cover lost grounds and support President Muhammadu Buhari to implement people-oriented projects and programmes.

He spoke with State House correspondents after observing jumaat prayer with President Buhari at the State House mosque.
Lawan also assured of early national budgets passage.

He said “The expectations from Nigerians is a National Assembly that is very focused, that is very united, that is very patriotic and nationalistic and that is by the grace of God, the National Assembly that we shall have. “From my interactions with my colleagues when I was contesting, every senator there when I was contesting, has one massive experience or another.

I saw my colleagues exhibited patriotism and desire to work for Nigerians and therefore we hope to have a National Assembly that will work for Nigerians optimally and patriotically. “We also hope to have a National Assembly that will work with the executive arm of government in a partnership and synergy to ensure that we perform our functions as a government because we are a single unit. “I also foresee a National Assembly that will insist that whoever has a responsibility in government performs that responsibility because it takes all of us to work together to ensure that no part or nobody is left behind.

If there is anyone that is deficient, it would cost the system. So we are going to work very hard, we would like to catch up the lost grounds over the last four years.” He noted that the last Senate didn’t perform to capacity. “I am sure we did not perform to our capacity as a National Assembly in the last National Assembly. 
This time around we want to perform to full capacity and by the grace of God, Nigerians will see a positive difference in terms of delivery of service to our countrymen and women.” he said

"Belum tahu juga, bisa juga jadi pengangguran sekarang," jawab Sandi sembari tertawa.

Otherwise known as the People Power Revolution, the EDSA Revolution took place on February 23-25, 1986. It was a series of demonstrations in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. Best known for being a nonviolent revolution, the EDSA Revolution is responsible for the end of former Ferdinand Marcos’ governance and restoration of democracy in the Philippines. The Marcoses were infamous for suppressing freedom, heavy censorship, life-threatening abuses and assassinations, especially targeted towards those opposed to the government. Prior to the demonstrations, there was a campaign of civil resistance against the Marcos regime and alleged electoral fraud. The revolution led to the departure of Marcos and his entire family, after a total of 21 years of totalitarian rule, and the 14 years of imposed martial law.⁣

OYETOLA DIRECTS LG CHAIRMEN TO SUSPEND DUBAI TRIP TO ATTEND WORKSHOP

Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun has ordered council chairmen in the state to suspend their planned foreign trip to Dubai for a workshop.

The directive is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Osogbo by Mr Adeniyi Adeshina, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor.

According to Oyetola, although the trip was approved in 2018, embarking on same this time is not auspicious.

The governor said though it was desirable to continue to expose government officials to capacity building, the financial situation in the state at present did not permit such.

Oyetola, however, assured public officers in the state that they would continue to be given the benefit of training at the appropriate time as the financial situation of the state permits.

Total Politics Magazine (TPM) learnt that the 68 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas were billed to travel to United Arab Emirates for a 10-day workshop.

It was also gathered preparations for the foreign trip started during the administration of former Gov. Rauf Aregbesola but was delayed until now due to lack of funds.

The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons is a landmark international treaty whose main goals are to promote joint action in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, to avert the spread of nuclear weapons and nuclear weapon technology, and to open the way to achieving the goal of nuclear disarmament and general disarmament. This Treaty was opened for signature in 1968, entered into force in 1970 and was extended indefinitely in 1995, and is to date the only binding commitment in a multilateral treaty to the goal of disarmament by the nuclear-weapon States. A total of 191 States have joined the Treaty so far, including five nuclear-weapon States (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States). More countries have ratified the NPT than any other disarmament agreement and arms limitation, which indicates the Treaty’s significance, as it is regarded as the cornerstone of the global nuclear non-proliferation regime and an essential foundation for the pursuit of nuclear disarmament.⁣⠀

PDP GOVERNORS SET TO PAY N30,000 MINIMUM WAGE 
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors have expressed their readiness to pay the N30,000 minimum wage recently signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa, disclosed while speaking with newsmen at the end of the forum’s meeting which ended in the early hours of Friday in Abuja.

Dickson said that the governors were ready to pay the new minimum wage in order to alleviate the plight of workers in PDP-controlled states.

He called on President Buhari to expedite the process for the commencement of the payment of the new minimum wage by sending a bill to the incoming ninth National Assembly to review the revenue sharing formula of the country.

We are very eager as PDP governors to implement and pay the 30,000 naira minimum wage that the federal government announced. “We want to do so to alleviate the plight of the long suffering Nigeria workers who have been under-paid for long and the workers who are currently groaning in economic hardship as a result of what has gone wrong with the economy since the All Progressives Congress (APC) government took over. “So, we call on the federal government to expedite the process of presenting a bill to that effect.

Also we call for a review of the revenue sharing formula to accommodate a fresh Revenue Allocation Formula in the country,” he said.

Dickson also said that no PDP governor was involved in the alleged diversion of local government money, adding that PDP states “do not indulge in such reprehensible conducts”. He called on the Federal Government to name the states involved in the act and the period covered.

We dealt with the allegation of alleged diversion of local government funds by state governments and we condemned it in very strong term.

We as governors on the platform of the PDP want to make it clear that no PDP governor is involved in this allegation of diverting local government funds for whatever purpose.

Speaking from the Rose Garden, President Trump announced a short-term spending bill that would end the current government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history. The deal will re-open the government for three weeks and will allow the government to continue the debate on border security, most notably Trump’s demand for a border wall. President Trump stated that if he didn’t get a fair deal from Congress within the three-week time-span that he would “use the powers afforded to me under the laws and the Constitution of the United States to address this emergency.” The deal puts an end to the thirty-five-day shutdown that left hundreds of thousands of federal workers without pay. The deal comes after a long week where several employees in key agencies like the FAA, TSA, and IRS called in sick or did not show up to work due to lack of pay, causing delays at airports across the country and a delay in the processing of tax returns. This short-term deal will keep the federal government open until February 15.

President Trump has agreed to sign a spending bill that would avert another government shutdown and will also declare a national emergency in order to secure funds for a border wall according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The spending bill passed Congress on Thursday, February 14th, by a veto-proof margin. Trump initially said he was not happy with the bill but has now signalled that he will sign it. The bill includes $1.375 billion for 55 miles of steel-post fencing which falls short of Trump’s request for $5.6 billion for more than 200 miles of steel or concrete wall. In a provocative move, Trump will issue an executive order declaring a national emergency, allowing him to appropriate military funds to build the wall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said if Trump declares a national emergency, he is "doing an end run around Congress.” Trump’s executive order will likely face legal action from Democrats which has the potential to reach the Supreme Court.

GABON'S ECONOMIC WOES AROUSE NOSTALGIA FOR OMAR BONGO 
He died a decade ago, but residents of Franceville in southeast Gabon hark back with deep nostalgia to the rule of former president Omar Bongo.

His heyday was a time of seemingly endless oil wealth and optimism. But the river of dollars has dried up and been replaced by dour, IMF-required belt-tightening.

We miss him. It is thanks to him that we have the roads, the hospitals and the university too,” said Rebecca, a high-school pupil who was just eight when the man she calls “Papa Bongo” succumbed to cancer. 
Rebecca and a friend were taking smartphone selfies at an imposing statue of Bongo, who ruled the former French colony for 42 years — “a father to us all,” as she puts it.

When he was there, there were no money problems,” her schoolmate, 18-year-old Jessica, declared at the foot of the statue, a popular spot for youngsters to chat, dance, play and flirt.

Franceville is the capital of the Haut-Ogooue region where Bongo was born in 1935, and also where he was laid to rest. It hosts a lavish Moroccan-style mausoleum built on the orders of Bongo’s son and successor, Ali Bongo, that will be the focus of commemorations on Saturday for the 10th anniversary of the strongman’s death.

The vast tomb is surrounded by fountains and palm trees, decorated with mosaic tiles and fitted with marble stairs and gilded doors — a far cry from the Benguia II district on the far side of the hill where people live in wood and corrugated iron shacks.

GABON'S ECONOMIC WOES AROUSE NOSTALGIA FOR OMAR BONGO
He died a decade ago, but residents of Franceville in southeast Gabon hark back with deep nostalgia to the rule of former president Omar Bongo.

His heyday was a time of seemingly endless oil wealth and optimism. But the river of dollars has dried up and been replaced by dour, IMF-required belt-tightening.

We miss him. It is thanks to him that we have the roads, the hospitals and the university too,” said Rebecca, a high-school pupil who was just eight when the man she calls “Papa Bongo” succumbed to cancer.
Rebecca and a friend were taking smartphone selfies at an imposing statue of Bongo, who ruled the former French colony for 42 years — “a father to us all,” as she puts it.

When he was there, there were no money problems,” her schoolmate, 18-year-old Jessica, declared at the foot of the statue, a popular spot for youngsters to chat, dance, play and flirt.

Franceville is the capital of the Haut-Ogooue region where Bongo was born in 1935, and also where he was laid to rest. It hosts a lavish Moroccan-style mausoleum built on the orders of Bongo’s son and successor, Ali Bongo, that will be the focus of commemorations on Saturday for the 10th anniversary of the strongman’s death.

Since 2012, the world economy has grown at a steady, moderate pace - hovering at approximately 2.5-3.1% per annum. Despite the expected continuation of this global trend certain economies, particularly in the regions of Africa and South Asia, have and will continue to expand at extremely fast rates. In 2019, African nations will lead the pack with Ethiopia, Rwanda, Libya and Ghana’s GDPs growing at 8.5%, 7.8%, 7.6% and 6.7% respectively. It is estimated that the cumulative African economy will grow at a rate of 4% this upcoming year. India will lead Asia with an expected GDP growth of 7.4%. Bangladesh remains on India’s tail with a forecasted growth of 7.1%. China is expected to lag slightly at 6.2% and Southeast Asian nations will follow close behind with Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos all expected to expand at well over 6%. These are preliminary and disputed figures, subject to change as economic indicators become more readily available. ⁣

Megawati kemudian duduk bersebelahan dengan Ibu Negara Iriana Joko Widodo. Kedatangan SBY kemudian disambut oleh Megawati, keduanya kemudian bersalaman dan SBY duduk bersebelahan dengan Iriana dan Megawati.

Dalam kesempatan itu, Presiden Joko Widodo selaku inspektur upacara mendoakan agar almarhumah diterima disisi tuhan yang maha esa. “Semoga jalan dharma bakti yang ditempuhnya bisa jadi suritauladan bagi kita semua, dan arwahnya dapat tempat semestinya di alam baka,” sambungnya ---------------------------------------- .

Hans Island is a small uninhabited barren knoll in the Kenedy Channel between Ellesmere Island (Canada) and Greenland (Denmark). The width of the channel at the location of the island is just 35 kilometres placing the island in the territorial waters of both states. The island remained an issue of dispute even after the Convention of the Continental Shelf where Denmark and Canada agreed on the sea boundaries of their claims in the north Atlantic. The dispute rose to prominence in 1984 when an article uncovered that Dome Petroleum was conducting petroleum exploration operations on the island without the knowledge of relevant officials from either country. Later that year when a Danish flag was planted on the island with a bottle of Schnapps accompanying it, the Canadians reciprocated by planting their own flag and leaving a bottle of Canadian Club. The territory remains currently disputed. ⁣

The Montevideo Convention signed at Montevideo, Uruguay in 1933 is widely accepted in international law as the basis for the declarative theory of statehood. The Convention lists out 4 qualifications for the existence of statehood namely: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with other states. Detractors of Palestinian statehood argue that Palestine does not fulfill the above requirements as it exerts no independent authority over its land whereas supporters argue that the degree of authority is unspecified. The Palestinian issue is perhaps the most contentious issue in geopolitics today.⁣

In four of Brazil’s federal prisons, a program has been instituted that gives inmates the opportunity to be released in a shorter amount of time through reading. Certain inmates that are chosen by a special council of the “Redemption through Reading” program are given 4 weeks to read a piece of literature, philosophy, science, or a classic, and then write an essay with “correct use of paragraphs, [that must] be free of corrections, [and] use margins and legible joined-up writing.” Participants of the program can read up to 12 pieces per year, each of which counts for 4 fewer days on the time they are set to serve in prison, for a possible total of 48 fewer days to serve each year. #politics #news #currentevents #politica #politik #politicalscience #politicalcompass #balancetheballot #youth #voting #mun #debate #discussion #politcaldebate#redemptionthroughreading #brazil #reading⁣⠀

Es geht nicht um Parteienlandschaften, sondern vielmehr um Einbeziehung in politische  Prozesse und um verständliche und nachvollziehbare Entscheidungen sowie Mitspracherecht. Was sollen mir #Volksparteien bringen ? Anstatt sich aktiv an politischen Projekten zu engagieren und mitzugestalten, muss man sich in irgendwelche Lagern einordnen und wiederfinden. Das ist nicht nur abschreckend sondern birgt auch die Gefahr des Desinteresses.

Die Ignoranz und Verschlossenheit der Parteien müssen der Vergangenheit angehören.

Ich fordere ein umdenken, bei allen Parteien. Vor allem bei den Volksparteien. Gerade die @cdu, die auch herausragendes geschafft hat für unsere Land, hat sich massiv von der Jugend, nicht zuletzt thematisch abgekoppelt. 
Die Schuldzuweisungen der @cdu an die @junge_union, sind völlig unangebracht und eine Schutzbehauptung, es wirkt wie eine Selbstzerstörung. Im Nachhinein muss man sich nicht in die Opferrolle drängen. Das Versagen sollte man sich schon selbst eingestehen! 
Des Weiteren ist es schon längst überfällig, die Jugend in allen politischen Belangen auf Kommunaler-, Landes- und Bundesebene konsequent zu etablieren und einzubeziehen, dies gilt auch bei der Besetzung von Kandidaturen. Dazu müssen auch Plätze auf dem Treppchen ermöglicht werden. 
Mir persönlich hilft keine One-Man-Show, Schwerpunkt oder pöbelnde Parteien und eine Partei, die sich durch interne Rivalitäten auszeichnet, schon recht nicht!

Wir sind die Ziegel auf dem Dach in stürmische Zeiten. Uns kann man nach dem Sturm 🌪 austauschen, doch die Scherben bleiben. 
Politik muss jünger, smarter, verständlicher und greifbarer werden. Politik muss leben!

An embassy is a headquarters for a given government’s representatives serving in a foreign country. The embassy is typically led by the country’s ambassador in the host country. They are typically located in the host country’s capital. The primary purpose of an embassy is the help the citizens of the country it is representing with any problems they have while living in the host country, but it is also a countries center of diplomatic relations with its host nation. Embassies also represent diplomatic relations between the country it represents and its host nation. A nation closing an embassy in the host nation is typically a sign diplomatic relations breaking down. ⁣

Pozostawić zupełnie bez komentarza nie dam rady i muszę stwierdzić na wstępie, że wyniki przedwczorajszych wyborów to  ogromna nauczka na jesień a moja smutna obserwacja,że w lokalach wyborczych nie pojawiały się osoby młode niestety  potwierdziła się w oficjalnych statystykach, według których jedynie niecałe 28 procent uprawnionych do głosowania osób w wieku 19-29 pojawiło się przy wyborczej urnie. Z mojego punktu widzenia powiedzenie, że jest to przerażające to zbyt mało i ciężko mi znaleźć słowa, które uchwycą moje rozgoryczenie. Prawdą jest, że to właśnie ten przedział wiekowy a nie ten, który był w tych wyborach najaktywniejszy (50-59 lat) będzie decydował o losach Polski za te 30-40 lat. Jesli w ślady za najmłodszymi głosującymi pójdą kolejne pokolenia, to nawet nie chcę myśleć w jaki sposób potoczą się losy Polski. Ciężko mi jest to pojąć i żywic mogę jedynie nadzieję na to, że zamiast bezsensownego scrollowania na instagramie czy facebooku młode pokolenie otworzy wreszcie książki, zacznie poszerzać własne horyzonty, osiągnie wykształcenie wyższe niż podstawowe (które posiada większość wyborców głosujacych na PiS), zacznie interesować się kulturą, losem świata i wreszcie podejmie jednostkową odpowiedzialność za to, co dzieje się w Polsce. PS: Jak zawsze podkreślam, nie wymierzam tej treści w większość młodych osób, ktore znam, bo mam to szczęście, że otaczają mnie osoby, które żywią zainteresowanie polityką, lecz mam również świadomość, że jesteśmy zdecydowaną mniejszością. #wybory #polishgirl #voteforfuture #equality #freedomofspeech #politcaldebate #feminist

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, President of Paris Saint-Germain football club, has been charged with corruption in relation to a $3.5 million payment concerning the organization of the World Athletics Championships in Qatar. Al-Khelaifi’s legal team has said that the PSG executive was “placed under the status of assisted witness”; he was then charged on May 16 over a $3.5 million payment made in 2011 between Oryx and Pamodzi Sport Consulting, two entities closely linked with Qatar Sports Investments, owners of PSG. "He was not directly or indirectly involved in Doha's bid to host the 2017 World Athletics Championships,” Al-Khelaifi’s lawyers said in a statement. Al-Khelaifi also serves as chairman of Bein Sports, a major sports broadcasters. French prosecutors have said that they will continue to look in Al-Khelaifi’s other business ventures. ⠀

The koala bear, an Australian icon, has been declared 'functionally extinct.' The Australian Koala Foundation released new findings that put the wild Australian koala population at 80,000. Functionally extinct refers to a "species whose population has declined to the point where it can no longer play a significant role in their ecosystem." Christine Adams-Hosking, a researcher at Queensland Univerity, stated that in the case of wild koalas, "a small population that, although still breeding, is suffering from inbreeding that can threaten its future viability." The president of the Australian Koala Foundation still holds onto hope, stating that political will is crucial to saving koalas. ⠀

Paul Whelan, a former US Marine, was detained in Moscow on 28th of December 2018 accused by the Russia of espionage conviction of which results in jail time up to 20 years. “I have been threatened. My personal safety has been threatened, there are abuses and harassment that I am constantly subjected to,” said Whelan in the courtroom. He claimed he wasn't given medical care and hasn't been allowed to shower in 2 weeks. Whelan was detained by Russia’s Federal Security Service when an acquaintance gave him a 'flash drive' with 'classified' information, Whelan claims that the FSB is setting him up and that he thought the drive contained holiday photos. “I guarantee you we will protest this fact with the Russian government and we will request the opportunity to speak frankly with him about these threats," said US diplomat Micheal Yoder. ⠀

Auweia. Leider darf ich heute nicht wählen, weil die Stadt Aachen ganz komische Fristen hat und ich mich in Kelmis auch 3 Monate vor der Wahl hätte regestrieren lassen müssen.

Aber ich bitte euch eurer Stimme Gewicht zu geben. Guckt euch den Wahl-O-maten an und nutzt eure Stimme. 
So beknackt sah mein Wahlplakat 2014 aus und ich denke heute,dass ich ganz anders wählen würde als noch vor ein paar Jahren.

Ich überlege tatsächlich,ob ich in meiner neuen Heimat auch wieder aktiv werden soll,denn nur wer Mitgestalter ist,hat auch nacher das Recht zu meckern.

Und jetzt dürft ihr über mein Bild lachen.

So beknackt sah mein Wahlplakat 2014 aus und ich denke heute,dass ich ganz anders wählen würde als noch vor ein paar Jahren.

Ich überlege tatsächlich,ob ich in meiner neuen Heimat auch wieder aktiv werden soll,denn nur wer Mitgestalter ist,hat auch nacher das Recht zu meckern.

Und jetzt dürft ihr über mein Bild lachen.

Billionaire Richard Branson is teaming up with diver Fabien Cousteau to explore the depths of the Great Blue Hole further. Found off the coast of Belize, it is thought to have been an enormous cave thousands of years ago. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is a widely acclaimed dive spot but is yet to be fully mapped. The goal of the probe is to explore further and potentially chart the abysses of the Great Blue Hole. The endeavour will be filmed by a team of explorers and scientists along with a team from the Aquatica Foundation. The entire ordeal will take up two weeks, allowing researchers to collect data to help reconstruct a life-sized model of the Great Blue Hole.⁣

Norway has discovered what it believes to be a "Russia spy whale" on its northern coast. A Norwegian fisherman found the whale, and the whale was later identified to be wearing a modified harness and for a GoPro camera mount. The camera is yet to be found, but the mount has been traced back to St Petersburg in Russia. The Beluga Whale itself is not identifiable as Russian, but the Russian military is known to have captured and trained both dolphins for military service, suggesting that it is plausible. The Arctic island where the whale was discovered, Ingoya, is only "415km (258 miles) from Murmansk, where Russia's Northern Fleet is based." (BBC).⁣⠀

There was a time, in the early 1980s, when indeed Pepsi Co. was the 6th largest military power in the world. Following the 1959 US exhibition in Moscow, Pepsi became a recognizable image in the USSR after Premier of the USSR Nikita Khrushchev was pictured drinking some after an argument with then POTUS Dwight Eisenhower. By the 1970s the Soviet government stroke a landmark deal which would make Pepsi Co. the first western import into the USSR, only a slight issue. How would they pay for their newest beverage, as their money wasn't accepted throughout the world? The Soviet government paid using a product of their own, Vodka. However, as the 1980s drew near Vodka could not cover the growing Pepsi imports into the USSR, as such the Soviet government traded 17 submarines, a cruiser, a frigate, and a destroyer to Pepsi Co. for $3 Billion worth of Pepsi. The company sold the fleet a day later for scrap metal, however, this made them briefly the 6th largest military power in the world. ⁣

With the expected shortage of fossil fuels after industrialization and climate change, countries worldwide are taking action by relying on other renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, and geothermal. Sweden is aiming to become the first country that completely eliminates fossil fuels from electricity generation by 2040. Sweden invested in solar and wind energy, energy storage, and clean transport. Costa Rica in the last 4 years has produced 95% of its electricity from solar, geothermal, wind, and hydro power. Scotland is constructing the largest floating wind farm; it generated 98% of its electricity produced from wind power. ⁣

Anti-corruption candidate Zuzana Čaputová was elected to become the first female president of Slovakia on March 30, 2019. Čaputová, a political outsider, won Saturday’s runoff election with around 58% of the vote and defeated career diplomat and European Commissioner VP Maroš Šefčovič. Čaputová is a member of the Progressive Slovakia party, which currently has no seats in parliament. She rose to political prominence after her anti-corruption campaign followed the murder of investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée. While the Slovakian Presidency is mostly a ceremonial post, Čaputová expressed that’s she hopes to use the position to ensure justice for all Slovaks by reinforcing both the independence of the public prosecutor’s office and the judicial appointment process. ⁣

NASA's Kepler telescope has received its final commands before being retired. The observatory ran out of fuel last month, and it's radio transmitters were turned off which effectively renders it unusable now. Kepler was active for nine years, observing more than 530,000 stars and returning 678 gigabytes of data back to Earth. Using the data collated by Kepler, 2,681 planets were confirmed, with 2,899 other planet candidates being tentatively observed.

It has recently been announced that Brunei, a small island sultanate on the island of Borneo, will add statutes in its penal code that outlaw homosexuality. Under the new changes, people charged with homosexuality could be stoned to death. Once the laws take effect, a person can only be convicted of adultery or homosexuality if there are multiple Muslim witnesses. The small nation has had the death penalty in the penal code since it has been a British protectorate, however, executions have rarely been carried out. Brunei is currently under the control of the sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah, a longtime advocate for a conservative version of Islam that has clashed with the more moderate lifestyles of many of the island’s inhabitants, including the lifestyle of the sultan himself, who lives in an ostentatious 1,788-room palace. The nation’s attorney general released a statement saying that the new laws will go into effect on April 3.⁣
