1…………> End Of Ramadan: New Bombings 


A suicide attack carried out by two female bombers in the remote town of Shuwari in Damboa killed at least 20 people were and injured 48 others in northeastern Borno state late Saturday, police and a relief agency said Sunday afternoon.

Twelve of the injured remain in “very critical condition”, Bashir Garga, regional coordinator for the government’s relief body, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), told Anadolu Agency.

Police also confirmed the death and injury tolls, but a local vigilante official Busari Ahmadu put the death toll higher at 31.

The blasts came a day after Nigeria celebrated Eid-al-fitr marking the end of Muslim fasting month Ramadan.




2…………> “Governs with heart”: Melania

First Lady Melania Trump has spoken out on the policy of separating parents and children illegally entering the country from Mexico, and “believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”

Her comments follow growing controversy over President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy, geared towards adults who try to cross the border and are placed in custody and face criminal prosecution for illegal entry, leaving hundreds of minors who are now being housed in detention centres and kept away from their parents.

In her rare intervention, Mrs Trump said she “hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle [Republicans and Democrats in Congress] can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform”.



3…………>Rose Town: China

Tourists visit a rose town in Luonan County, northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, June 16, 2018. The rose town in Luonan has received more than 200,000 tourists since its opening in May of 2017.




4…………>Hidden Military Bases: Fear & Mystery?

Secret military installations like Area 51 that legally does not exist, maybe housing terrible secrets and powerful superweapons that have long been the source inspiration of “James Bond” action movies and spy thrillers.

Area 51

The legendary US Air Force base in Nevada, commonly known as Area 51, is probably the most famous military installation among conspiracy theories around the world, with the facility name frequently being invoked in stories about UFO sightings, alien encounters and secret government agencies. 

A local story speaks of a bunch of space aliens who’s planet ran out of garlic-laced ice cream and strawberries, hence they made a deal with Uncle Sam to have a base in the mountains of the Sheep Range in return for sharing their UFO technology with the US.




5…………> Tariff Wars: Enter Mexico 

While still refusing to pay for Mr.Trump’s wall, and do it enthusiastically, Mexico is studying tariffs on the United States corn and soybean imports worth $4 billion annually in case the U.S. should escalate trade tensions by imposing additional tariffs of its own. 

It struck back swiftly after the United States announced May 31 that it would impose 25% and 10% tariffs on Mexican steel and aluminium imports by imposing its own “equivalent measures” on U.S. products including steel, pork, apples, bourbon and cheese. 

But it didn’t include corn and soybeans, both of which are used in Mexico to feed cattle, hogs and poultry. 

However, Mexico has already begun increasing its grain imports from producers such as Brazil and Argentina, meaning that the impact of any move to enforce tariffs on U.S. grains could be reduced.

1…………> Turkish Army: Inside Afrin

“Operation Olive Branch continues as planned and the ground offense has begun,” Turkey’s military said as terrorist targets, their positions and shelters were being destroyed, with “utmost importance” being given to not harm any civilian.

Turkish ground forces have started to move into Syria’s  with Free Syrian Army, backed by armored vehicles, special forces and infantry regiments advancing 3 miles inside Afrin as part of Operation Olive Branch.

During the movement, no major clashes took place.
Turkish warplanes and artillery have hit 153 PYD/PKK and Daesh targets in Syria’s Afrin, so far, the Turkish General Staff said earlier.



2…………> Who’ll Blink First:US Shutdown

As America’s most prolific monuments became emblems of the dysfunction of US “Twin Governments”, the impact of a shutdown that forced numbers of landmarks, agencies and outposts to close their doors, with almost half of the 2 million civilian workers are barred from doing their jobs.

 Trump’s administration and “Deep State” McCain/Clinton governments appeared  farther than ever in settling their differences over immigration policy and reaching an agreement to fund the Government and end the shutdown.

The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed were all closed due to lack of funds.

While active-duty troops will stay at their posts, overseas units were touched by the political firefight almost immediately, with the American Forces Network putting a message on its Facebook page that said its services would not be available “due to the government shutdown”.



3…………> Back To Work: US Senate

With a US Senate vote of 50-49, falling far short of the 60 needed to advance the GOP  government funding bill, it was abundantly clear that the Republicans do not have enough votes to pass it without some support from the Democrats, a development immortalized forever by the mafia movies as “bachio mortale”, or a kiss of death by someone who has just gulped up a clove of garlic.

Hundreds of thousands of federal staff face the prospect of unpaid leave, putting pressure on the politicians to pass a new budget and prevent further shutdown.

The Republican leader of the US Senate, Mitch “Harry’s Twin” McConnell, has said there will be a vote at 01:00 in the early hours of Monday (06:00 GMT) on a bill to fund the government until 8 February.



4…………> Pentagon White Paper: Back To Cold War

China has severely criticized a US Pentagon paper that claims that the greatest danger is not longer a terrorism, but military competition between nuclear power, namely China and ever more aggressive Russia.



5…………> Hydrogen City: Wuhan, China

Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, will build itself into a “hydrogen city” through developing hydrogen energy industry, by advancing research and development of core technology of hydrogen production, storage and transport, and improve hydrogen infrastructure in the coming years.

Wuhan is scheduled to become a world hydrogen city by 2025, with 3 to 5 world leading hydrogen enterprises and 30 to 100 hydrogen fueling stations. The annual production value of hydrogen fuel cells will exceed 100 billion yuan (around 15.63 billion U.S. dollars), it added.

“Despite a late start, China has made rapid progress in hydrogen development, mastering core technologies of the hydrogen fuel cell,” said Zhang Qingjie, president of Wuhan University of Technology.
