Behind two long rows of dog butchers at the Nanqiao market, others sold cow tongues and pork hocks.

Armed Russian jet 'flies within 5 feet of American plane' over Baltic Sea

(image) An armed Russian fighter jet flew within 5ft (1.5m) of a US plane in a "provocative" manoeuvre over the Baltic Sea, it has been reported. The Sukhoi Su-27 jet approached an American RC-135 reconnaissance plane "rapidly" and flew "erratically", according to officials quoted by Fox News. The US considers the incident, which took place some 25 miles north-west of Kaliningrad, an unsafe intercept.

Pentagon chief blasts N.Korea over US student who died

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 16:21:14 -0400

(image) North Korea's treatment of an American student who died after being released from detention in a coma was inhuman and US patience with Pyongyang is running out, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Wednesday. Otto Warmbier, 22, suffered severe brain damage in North Korea and died on Monday following 18 months of captivity in North Korea after he was sentenced to hard labor for stealing a political poster from a hotel. "To see a young man go over there healthy and, (after) a minor act of mischief, come home dead basically... this goes beyond any kind of understanding of law and order, of humanity, of responsibility towards any human being," Mattis said.

Islamic State blows up historic Mosul mosque where it declared 'caliphate': Iraqi military

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 18:25:45 -0400

(image) By Marius Bosch and Maher Chmaytelli MOSUL/ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Islamic State militants on Wednesday blew up the Grand al-Nuri Mosque of Mosul and its famous leaning minaret, an Iraqi military statement said, as Iraqi forces seeking to expel the group from the city closed in on the site. It was from this medieval mosque three years ago that the militants' leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a self-styled "caliphate" spanning parts of Syria and Iraq. Islamic State's Amaq news agency accused American aircraft of destroying the mosque, a claim swiftly denied by the U.S.-led international coalition fighting the hardline Sunni group.

9 Ice Cream Hacks to Get You Through Summer

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:22:58 -0400

(image) It’s an undisputed fact that we all scream for ice cream, especially during the summer months when the sun is hot and we can’t always get what we want (#bikinibodgoals). The metal will increase in temperature and, in turn, melt the ice cream as it comes into contact with it. Ice cream obviously stays more frozen in the center, so it’s easier to start from the outside and work your way in.

A US carrier just announced that it won’t sell anything but Apple’s iPhone from now on

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 10:48:59 -0400

(image)

The iPhone is obviously one of the most popular gadgets of all time, and as the single most dominant force in smartphones today, putting all your chips in the iPhone basket isn't a terrible strategy. At least that's the thinking behind Virgin Mobile's announcement that, as of June 27th, it won't sell anything but Apple's smartphone. No Android, no Windows Phone, no anything but iPhone, and Virgin Mobile is launching a new wireless plan to match it.

"There’s iPhone. And then there’s everything else," the company says in its official announcement. "At Virgin Mobile, we’re teaming with Apple to offer you nothing but the world’s most popular phone. Because life in the Inner Circle is about living big, expanding your horizons and pursuing your passions. And it starts with an iPhone you’ll adore."

Along with the new iPhone-only sales strategy, Virgin Mobile is launching a new promotion with its $50/month Inner Circle plan. If you buy a new iPhone through Virgin, you'll get the first full year of unlimited service for just $1. After the first year ends, the monthly fee will return to $50.

As with all the "unlimited" plans these days, the service Virgin Mobile is offering isn't truly unlimited at all. The company notes that it will "deprioritize" your service if you manage to burn through more than 23 GB of data during any billing cycle. Still, that's a huge amount of data, and the vast majority of even heavy smartphone users probably won't come anywhere near maxing it out.

Donald Trump ruthlessly mocks soul-searching Democrats after Georgia special election loss

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 10:08:00 -0400

(image) Donald Trump has rubbed salt in the wounds of the Democrats – even as the shuddering defeat in Georgia sparked fresh soul-searching within the party about how best to appeal to voters ahead of the 2018 midterms. Democrats, desperate for a victory after Mr Trump secured the presidency last November, had poured millions of dollars and national support into Jon Ossoff’s campaign. The defeat in Georgia, the costliest congressional race in history with a bill that topped $56m, was quickly seized on by Mr Trump, whose name and deeds had had hung over the contest.

Saudi king empowers young reformer son in succession shake-up

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 18:04:29 -0400

(image) By Stephen Kalin and William Maclean DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's King Salman made his son next in line to the throne on Wednesday, handing the 31-year-old sweeping powers as the kingdom seeks a radical overhaul of its oil-dependent economy and faces mounting tensions with regional rival Iran. Although Mohammed bin Salman's promotion to crown prince had long been expected among those who follow the royal family closely, the timing was a surprise and puts the kingdom's future in relatively untested hands. Mohammed bin Salman replaces his cousin, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, a veteran security chief who led the Saudi campaign against Islamic State and al Qaeda, at a time when Riyadh faces tensions with Qatar and Iran and is locked into a war in Yemen.

Report: T-Mobile and Sprint are finalizing plans for a merger

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 15:32:11 -0400

T-Mobile and Sprint have been flirting with the notion of a merger like a pair of coy teenagers at a high-school dance, but we're seeing signs that something is finally going to happen. It's a logical move for both companies: the networks would get bigger, and they wouldn't need to have Twitter fights with each other anymore. It would also be terrible for anyone why buys a wireless plan in the US, but that's not stopping progress. A new report from a German newspaper says that Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile's owner, is preparing documents for a merger with Sprint. Handelsblatt's report says that the details of the merger are reaching the final steps, and Deutsche is preparing documents for an all-stock merger agreement. Such a deal would avoid most of the usual transaction costs of a merger, as it would just involve an exchange of stock instead of cash. A merger would likely see T-Mobile and Sprint's networks also become as one, although that would take much longer than the merger on paper. Sprint uses CDMA technology to power its 2G network, while T-Mobile is on GSM. The two technologies are not compatible, and CDMA would likely have to be phased out (along with some customer devices) before the two networks could truly unify. That union of networks would actually be good news for customers: although there's a lot of overlap, the two networks combined would have much better coverage than either T-Mobile or Sprint currently. Room is also there for aggressive future expansion, as T-Mobile recently bought new spectrum from the FCC for a 5G network, and Sprint already has spectrum licenses it's not using that could be built out. But don't be fooled that a merger would ultimately be a good thing: going from four to three national carriers would massively reduce competition, so things that you're used to like cheaper cell plans and unlimited deals will quickly become a thing of the past. Losing Sprint would be particularly bad: it's the cheapest of the four carriers, and that downwards price pressure is the only thing that forces T-Mobile to keep prices a little lower than Verizon and AT&T. Canada provides a cautionary tale: it has only three national wireless networks and a handful of regional players, and the result (with a demographic similar to the US) is one of the most expensive cellphone industries in the world. There's no unlimited plans, customers are still locked into multi-year contracts, and a basic plan with a few GB of data can cost upwards of $100. There's no indication that a T-Mobile-Sprint merger would suddenly turn the US into Canada, but it's an awful time for competition to slow down. 5G is just around the corner, and the amount of competition cell companies curre[...]
