INDEPENDENT - The two sides in Syria’s civil war are talking, Apr 15, 2013

syriaphoto 1024x731 The two sides in Syria’s civil war are talking
"A new video uploaded by a group of rebel fighters in Darayya appears to show a dialogue of sorts between the Syrian regime and the opposition. While not quite the high-level discussions needed to bring an end to the fighting, the exchange nevertheless gives a fascinating insight into the thinking of both sides. The scene takes place on the front lines in Darayya – a suburb of Damascus that has seen some of the heaviest fighting in the country. A correspondent working for Russia Today recently referred to it as “Syria’s Stalingrad”. The camera follows a rebel fighter as he makes his way through a gutted, sand-bagged building occupied by both government soldiers and rebel fighters. No man’s land is a staircase, and like in many other contested areas across the country the gap between the two sides is small enough so that they can shout to each other. A conversation is underway between one of the rebels and what appears to be a government soldier, who is out of shot."

FORBES - Anne Frank Teaches Justin Bieber a Lesson, Apr 15, 2013


 "There’s a reason the Anne Frank House regularly has the longest lines in Amsterdam; it’s one of the most moving and emotionally-taxing experiences a person can have at a museum. The faces of the people exiting the canalside history lesson are a testament to the impact the place can have. Which is why Justin Bieber‘s Anne Frank House stupidity isn’t just another example of a famous narcissistic teen warbler doing something idiotic in public – he’s a uniquely loathsome narcissistic teen warbler who is now paying for his idiocy with a backlash of epic social media proportions. “Hopefully she would have been a belieber,” he wrote in the guest book before leaving during a visit last week, inspiring outrage and derisive jokes everywhere. In a schadenfreudian way, it’s lovely to watch – even more so because he’s probably right; Anne Frank very well might have had Bieber’s dreamboy face up on her wall next to her photos of Hollywood stars and European royals. (She also almost certainly would have been put off by his cynical manipulation of a young Holocaust victim, so he’d probably get torn off the wall, too.)"

TIMES - Antarctic summer ice melting 10 times faster: study, Apr 15, 2013


 "A research team from the Australian National University and the British Antarctic Survey drilled a 364-metre long ice core from James Ross Island in the continent's north to measure past temperatures in the area. Visible layers in the ice core indicated periods when summer snow on the ice cap thawed and then refroze. By measuring the thickness of these melt layers, the scientists were able to examine how the history of melting compared with changes in temperature at the ice core site over the last 1 000 years. "We found that the coolest conditions on the Antarctic peninsula and the lowest amount of summer melt occurred around 600 years ago," said lead author Nerilie Abram of the ANU Research School of Earth Sciences."
