After a month of fasting, prayer and alms-giving, Muslims around the world will welcome the end of Ramadan either June 25 or 26, depending on when the new moon is seen. Eid al-Fitr means "festival of the breaking of the fast" and it is one of the biggest celebrations in the Islamic year. Since Eid begins with the first sighting of the new moon, most of the Muslims have to wait until the night before Eid to verify its date. After the moon is seen, it is celebrated for three days and on the morning of the first day, Muslims gather for prayer.
Ed Gillespie has a tricky road ahead of him as he campaigns for Virginia governor this year. The Republican nominee wants to talk about state issues, not President Trump, not Russia and certainly not what’s on Twitter. The latest sign is that former President Obama has already decided to campaign for the Democratic nominee, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam.

The USS Fitzgerald, which was rammed along its right side by a container ship off the coast of Japan on June 17, apparently ignored warnings it had swerved into the oncoming ship’s path, the vessel’s owner claims. Reuters has obtained a copy of the container ship captain’s report, which said the ACX Crystal had signaled with flashing lights after the Fitzgerald “suddenly” crossed its path. The U.S. Navy continues to investigate the incident, which killed seven U.S. sailors. For the first several months of the Trump administration, CIA director Mike Pompeo held a series secret talks with Ali Mamlouk, the head of Syria’s National Security Bureau intelligence service, who has been accused of human rights abuses during the country’s civil war and hit with sanctions by Washington.

By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - The rise in global sea levels has accelerated since the 1990s amid rising temperatures, with a thaw of Greenland's ice sheet pouring ever more water into the oceans, scientists said on Monday. Sea levels have risen by about 20 cms in the past century and many scientific studies project a steady acceleration this century as man-made global warming melts more ice on land. The study found that early satellite data had exaggerated the rate of sea level rise in the 1990s, masking the recent acceleration.
During the normal course of a commercial plane trip, you might never actually hear the pilot’s voice at all. If you do, it’s typically to thank you for flying or a quick update on the estimated arrival time, but on a recent AirAsia X flight from Perth, Australia to Malaysia, passengers were treated to something quite different. After an engine malfunction caused the entire plane to begin to shake violently while in the air, the pilot took to the intercom to urge the 359 souls on board to pray for their lives and safe landing of the aircraft.
Speaking after Eid al-Fitr prayers in Istanbul, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the demand to pull the Turkish troops "disrespectful" and said his country would not seek permission from others when making its defense cooperation agreements.

"We've sold up to 1500 a day and people have waited up to 2 hours in line just to get one," says co-founder of The Loop, Jed Cartojano. This is no accident: Cartojano runs the popular Instagram account @dailyfoodfeed and knew that if he opened up his own dessert shop, he had to be sure of one thing: No one could leave without snapping a pic. "We only have one soft serve machine," Cartojano says, "and have been told by our vendors that we sell more of it than soft serve ice cream stores!" It's all for that pic.
On TV Sunday, President Trump lamented “the disaster stories” of veterans forced to wait several months for health care services through the Department of Veterans Affairs. “People are waiting on line seven, eight, nine months to see a doctor — or worse, they have a disease or a problem or a form of cancer that’s easily and quickly curable and they have to wait six, seven, eight months and by the time they get in, it’s terminal,” Trump said in an interview on Fox & Friends Sunday. Gregory is one of 1.75 million veterans in the U.S. who relies on Medicaid for health insurance.

The mother of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a Minnesota police officer last July, has reached a nearly $3 million settlement with the city that employed the officer, avoiding a federal wrongful death lawsuit that attorneys said could have taken years to resolve. The settlement to be paid to Valerie Castile, who is the family's trustee, was announced Monday and comes less than two weeks after officer Jeronimo Yanez was acquitted of manslaughter and other charges connected to her son's death. Castile, a 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker, was shot five times by Yanez during a traffic stop after Castile informed the officer he was armed.
An eight-hour ceasefire in a Philippine city allowing residents to celebrate the end of Ramadan came to an abrupt end Sunday afternoon as the government continued its offensive against Islamist militants occupying parts of war-torn Marawi. Assaults backed by air and artillery bombardment had stopped at the start of Islamic prayers at 6am but gunfire broke out as soon as the truce ended around 2pm, AFP reporters in Marawi said. Regional military commander Lieutenant General Carlito Galvez said the truce also allowed five Muslim religious leaders to enter ground zero and negotiate with the militants to release civilian hostages, especially children, women and the elderly.

Glyphosate, an herbicide and the active ingredient in Monsanto Co's popular Roundup weed killer, will be added to California's list of chemicals known to cause cancer effective July 7, the state's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) said on Monday. Monsanto vowed to continue its legal fight against the designation, required under a state law known as Proposition 65, and called the decision "unwarranted on the basis of science and the law." The listing is the latest legal setback for the seeds and chemicals company, which has faced increasing litigation over glyphosate since the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer said that it is "probably carcinogenic" in a controversial ruling in 2015.
Not too long ago RideApart first told you about Vanderhall Motor Works, a Utah-based company making three-wheeled vehicles. Is it a car, or is it a motorcycle? Legally, since it has less than four wheels, it's considered to be a motorcycle in the state of California (where we tested it).
