Seventeen people were treated for gunshot wounds, said Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri. Two suspects opened fire around 2:45 a.m. during the Art All Night Trenton festival that showcases local art, music, food and films. Onofri said he believes police killed him.
But first, let me take a selfie. NASA's Curiosity rover has taken an incredible selfie image during an "unprecedented" massive dust storm on Mars. The image, a composite created by scientist Seán Doran, who works with NASA'S Jet Propulsion Lab to create and process its photography, shows the $2.5 billion research vehicle stylin' and profilin' in the wake of the epic dust storm happening on the Red Planet. "It's blended out of the shot," Doran told the Daily Mail when asked how he created the image. "The arm moves around as it takes about 100 images to make a full 360 (degree image)." The Curiosity rover is currently on the Gale Crater on Mars, a 96-mile-wide valley that researchers once believed
Until then, consideration of clemency is unnecessary, Giuliani said, as the White House presses to bring the yearlong investigation to an end. Giuliani denied that Trump was trying to send a message to Paul Manafort, who was the 2016 chairman for nearly five months, or others to refrain from cooperating with prosecutors. The former New York City mayor suggested that an end to the investigation could be in sight one way or the other — either by undercutting Mueller’s inquiry as illegitimate, or if necessary, by agreeing to a Trump interview with prosecutors under limited conditions.
Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler was arrested Monday in connection with parent company Volkswagen's "dieselgate" emissions cheating scandal, with prosecutors saying they feared he might try to suppress evidence. The dramatic development comes a week after Munich prosecutors raided Stadler's home after charging him with fraud and falsifying documents that allowed diesel vehicles equipped with cheating software to be sold to European customers. Four police officers detained the Audi boss at his home at between 6 and 7 am, a spokesman for Munich prosecutors told AFP, saying that the arrest was justified as he is suspected of "seeking to influence witnesses or other suspects".
Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had his ashes interred at Westminster Abbey in London last week, and he also received a send-off to space: the European Space Agency beamed music that included snippets of his synthesized voice into the closest known black-hole. A fitting tribute to Hawking, who was renowned for his work on black holes: in 1974, he demonstrated that, contrary to popular belief, black holes do emit radiation (a phenomena that became known as “Hawking radiation).
Scientists have discovered dogs use 19 signals dogs to try and communicate with their human pals. Footage of 37 dogs filmed by their owners during day-to-day task showed them the pooches were often seemingly using similar movements to express what they wanted. They eventually nailed down 19 gestures - including rolling over or jumping up and down - which appear to carry a message. The scientists think the dogs were, on several occasions, asking for a door to be opened, expressing they wanted to be fed or hoping their owner would get a toy. Although some desires, such as wanting food, were shown through many different gestures - basically dogs are keen to be fed at all times - others appeared
Duque captured almost 54% of the vote, putting him 12 points ahead of former leftist guerrilla Gustavo Petro in a tense runoff election that had appeared to be tightening in recent days. In the end, the prematurely graying 41-year-old sailed to victory, promising to change parts of the accord with leftist rebels but not “shred it to pieces” as some of his hawkish allies had been urging. When he takes office in August, Duque will be Colombia’s youngest president in more than a century.
By Jon Herskovitz COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Reuters) - A master distiller and a crop scientist who specializes in corn breeding are working on a project they hope one day will help bring local identities to American whiskeys. Seth Murray, a top corn breeder at Texas A&M University, and Rob Arnold, working on a doctorate at the school while making whiskey for a Fort Worth distiller, are trying to develop commercially viable strains of corn with identifiable flavors, in the same way as specific grapes define the taste of wine from California's Napa Valley or a Bordeaux produced in southwest France.
Scientists at The Australian National University (ANU) have contributed to an international study that will potentially help humans to colonize Mars and find life on other planets. Credit: Australian National University (ANU) The study on an organism that survives in inhospitable and low-light conditions could dramatically improve our understanding of photosynthesis, the process by which plants and other organisms make and store energy from light and produce oxygen. ANU worked with research institutions in Italy, France and the United Kingdom to support London’s Imperial College, which led the study. Cyanobacteria are one of the largest groups of bacteria on Earth, where they have existed for
The incident at the Walmart in Tumwater happened about 5 p.m. A witness told KOMO-TV that people were in line when they heard gunfire in the store. Tumwater Police Department spokeswoman Laura Wohl said it is unclear whether the gunman was ever inside the store or if shots were fired inside, The Olympian reported .
The bacteria that 3.5 billion years ago were largely responsible for the creation of a breathable atmosphere on Earth could be press-ganged into terraforming other planets, research suggests. A team of biologists and chemists from Australia, the UK, France and Italy has been investigating the ability of cyanobacteria – also known as blue-green algae – to photosynthesise in low-light conditions. Cyanobacteria are some of the most ancient organisms around, and were responsible, though photosynthesis, for converting the Earth’s early atmosphere of methane, ammonia and other gases into the composition it sustains today. The photochemistry used by the microbes is pretty much the same as that used by the legion of multicellular plants that subsequently evolved.
The SUV carrying 14 people went out of control at more than 100 mph and overturned on Texas Highway 85, ejecting most of the occupants, Dimmit County Sheriff Marion Boyd said. Four victims were dead at the scene, Boyd said.
Along sun-splashed shorelines in the US state of Florida, home prices are on the rise, developers are busy building new complexes, and listings just blocks from the beach describe homes that are "not in a flood zone," meaning no flood insurance is required. A reality check may come sooner than many may think, according to a report out Monday by the Union of Concerned Scientists, which finds as many as 64,000 coastal residences worth $26 billion in Florida are at risk of chronic flooding in the next 30 years, the life of a typical mortgage. Across the United States, 311,000 coastal homes with a collective market value of about $120 billion in today's dollars are at risk of chronic flooding by 2045, it said.

Have you ever wondered how 3D printing works, what types of 3D printing exist, or just what 3D printing is used for these days? You’ve come to the right place: We’re going to cover the basic definition of 3D printing, how different versions are used, and some of the incredible things that additive manufacturing techniques are capable of. 3D printing is a manufacturing process that creates a three dimensional object by incrementally adding material until the object is complete (this contrasts with subtractive manufacturing techniques such as carving or milling, in which an object is created by selectively removing parts from a piece of raw material). A 3D printer is simply a machine that can take a digital 3D model and turn it into a tangible 3D object via additive manufacturing.
More Republicans broke ranks with the White House this weekend over the Trump administration’s policy of separating parents who cross into the United States illegally from their children. The White House has refused to budge on its new “zero tolerance” policy that, by referring all cases of illegal entry into the U.S. for criminal prosecution, splits migrant children from parents taken into custody. Here are the Republicans who have joined Democrats across the board in speaking out against the policy.
Like humans, some dogs are more prone to obesity than others. A new study on dog behavior may help us better understand how human personalities affect obesity. Scientists in Budapest, Hungary asked volunteers to bring in their pet dogs, which the scientists would separate into groups based on whether they were average weight or obese.
A retired astronaut predicts that rockets developed by SpaceX, NASA, and Blue Origin won’t succeed in landing human beings on Mars — not because the technology won’t work, but because the safety risks are too great.
German authorities on Monday detained the chief executive of Volkswagen’s Audi division, Rupert Stadler, as part of a probe into manipulation of emissions controls. The move follows a search last week of Stadler’s private residence, ordered by Munich prosecutors investigating the manager on suspicion of fraud and indirect improprieties with documents. “Audi CEO Rupert Stadler was provisionally arrested this morning,” the company said in a statement.
Human encroachment is pushing wild mammals all over the globe to increasingly become creatures of the night, moving their daytime activities toward the darker hours, a new study finds. This day-to-night shift, described in the journal Science, could have a host of implications for the health and survival of these species – and the structure of their ecosystems as a whole. Roughly 75 percent of the world's land surface has been impacted by humans, researchers say – and as animals have been trapped in these shrinking parcels of pristine land, they've had to adapt to living in the presence of cities or near human activity. Scientists have found that some birds have had to change the frequency of
The U.S. government is shutting down a study that was supposed to show if a single drink a day could prevent heart attacks, saying ethical problems with how the research was planned and funded undermine its credibility. The National Institutes of Health used money from the alcohol industry to help pay for a study that ultimately was expected to cost $100 million. It's legal for NIH to use industry money in addition to taxpayer dollars for research as long as certain rules are followed. The problem: An NIH investigation concluded Friday that a small number of its employees had close contact with industry officials that crossed those lines. Some of those interactions "appear to intentionally bias"
Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the incident at the “Los Cotorros” club in the middle-class neighborhood of El Paraiso left eight minors dead and five injured. Eight people were detained, including two teens believed responsible for setting off the tear gas canister. Julio Cesar Perdomo said his injured son told him the tear gas was launched from inside a bathroom and that partygoers tried to flee but found the club’s door closed.
A tarsier is known for its big, beady eyes, but it's only when you look at a skull of this diminutive South East Asian primate that you realise just how big are. Each one is the same size as its brain. They can't move their eyeballs; if they want to look to the right or left they have to turn their whole head. But the mere fact that tarsiers have these monster organs tells you one thing: vision is very important to them. The animal is a master in the dark, able to see and snaffle insects and small birds even when it seems impossibly dark. "Theirs is a monochrome world; the back of their eyes are packed with photoreceptor rods, not cones, so they can gather every last photon of light," explains

German Chancellor Angela Merkel faces a political crisis that could reshape Europe’s migration crisis and potentially end her ten years in power. A standoff at the top level of government over Germany’s liberal migration policies threatens to collapse the fragile coalition that Merkel presides over. The result of the standoff could have far-reaching ramifications for all E.U. countries, as well as the migrants seeking to resettle in them.
