Hyperloop or hyperbole? Musk promises NY-DC run in 29 mins http://www.nst.com.my/lifestyle/bots/2017/07/259337/hyperloop-or-hyperbole-musk-promises-ny-dc-run-29-mins
NEW YORK: US entrepreneur Elon Musk said Thursday he’d received tentative approval from the government to build a conceptual “hyperloop” system that would blast passenger pods down vacuum-sealed tubes from New York to Washington at near supersonic speeds.

Facing a barrage of skepticism, Musk, who has been known to over-promise in his announcements, clarified: “Still a lot of work needed to receive formal approval, but am optimistic that will occur rapidly,” urging people to lobby their representatives.

According to official figures, 4.7 million Italians live in absolute poverty. The number is 144,000 up on 2015
Poverty remains high in Italy, and is slightly up on 2015, with larger families the worst hit. According to figures published by Italian statistics institute ISTAT, 1.619m Italian families were living in absolute poverty in 2016, for a total of 4.742m people, 144,000 more than in 2015. In relation to the number of households (25.7m) and resident population (60m), 6.3% of households were living in conditions of absolute poverty (compared to 6.1% in 2015). This amounted to 7.9% of the population (7.6% in 2015). For ISTAT, absolute poverty means being unable to buy a basket of goods and services “essential to a minimum acceptable standard of living”, which varies according to size of family, age and geographical location

‘Nuclear Nine’ and the NPT - The Manila Times Online
http://www.manilatimes.net/nuclear-nine-npt/338464/
THEY who hold the gold make the rules.
True, especially in the case of the United States, Russia, Britain, China, France, India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel, which are the nine countries in the world that possess nuclear weapons.

At best, the NPT is and can only be a deterrent against the leader of any of the nine countries who might get stupid or crazy enough to press the button that would send the rest of the world to kingdom come.

The NPT is a joke partly because it only prohibits developing and stockpiling of nuclear weapons; it does not carry a provision for recall or destruction of such weapons that at present may be in the nuclear depots of the Nuclear Nine.
