  • Russia raises spectre of interminable or 'world war' if Syria talks fail

    By John Irish MUNICH (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev raised the spectre of an interminable or a world war if powers failed to negotiate an end to the conflict in Syria and warned against any ground operations by U.S. and Arab forces. Medvedev, speaking to Germany's Handelsblatt newspaper on the eve of talks between major powers on Syria in Munich, said the United States and Russia must exert pressure on all sides in the conflict to secure a ceasefire. Asked about Saudi Arabia's offer last week to supply ground troops if a U.S.-led operation were mounted against Islamic State, he said: "This is bad as a ground offensive usually turns the war into a permanent one.

  • EU refines UK offer, up to Cameron now to clinch deal

    By Jan Strupczewski, Alastair Macdonald and Gabriela Baczynska BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British and EU negotiators agreed much of a reform package on Thursday to help keep Britain in the European Union, leaving Prime Minister David Cameron to settle tricky final issues, notably on migration, at a summit next week, diplomats said. After talks in Brussels among officials from all 28 member states to review mostly minor amendments to proposals made by European Council President Donald Tusk last week, an EU source reported "good progress" in clarifying technical, legal issues. "But main political issues are still outstanding and they will have to be dealt with by leaders next week," the source added, referring to a summit on Feb. 18-19 where Cameron hopes to clinch a final deal with his European peers on which he can campaign at home to keep Britain in the bloc at a referendum.

  • People are illegally buying these 'thumb monkeys' for $4,500

    The new "It pet" for China's wealthy is a fitting one, considering it's the year of the monkey this Lunar New Year — the pygmy marmoset. Smaller than a hamster, the pygmy marmoset is the world's smallest monkey, with a body size that ranges from 5.5 to 6.3 inches. This miniature primate that hails from the Western Amazonian rainforests weighs no more than 4.9 ounces and can be held onto with a finger, therefore earning its "thumb monkey" nickname. See also: Chinese woman dumps boyfriend after being put off by his family's Chinese New Year meal According to People's Daily Online, the pygmy marmoset is considered an exotic pet in China. It's illegal to sell it, but it is being sold for up to 30,000 yuan ($4,500). The hefty price tag and law certainly isn't stopping China's nouveau riche from owning a "thumb monkey." Image: Weibo A "thumb monkey" owner, identified only as Chen, has even taken to his Weibo account to show off his darling new pet. Image: Weibo In the post where he debuts the primate that he named "Xiao Shen," Chen declared: "Snow skin leopards and red-crowned cranes have nothing on my New Year's gift." According to Chinese law, the sale of exotic animals such as the pygmy marmoset is illegal. The primate is listed on the International Union for Conservation Nature's red list of endangered species.

  • North Korean satellite nonfunctional and ‘tumbling in orbit’ following weekend launch

    North Korea is dealing with an international fallout following the country’s weekend launch of a satellite-carrying rocket. The country reportedly launched a rocket and successfully deployed the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite in orbit, reports CNN. According to U.S. Department of Defense officials who were monitoring the launch, the satellite reached its orbit, but is tumbling and nonfunctional. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) launched its Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite on Sunday despite objections internationally that the deployment violates earlier agreements prohibiting missile testing. Officials from concerned countries believe the rocket launches could be a front being used by North Korea to test and develop intercontinental ballistic missile technology. North Korean officials claim the launch was for “peaceful purposes” with officials asserting the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite is an “earth observation satellite” that can be used to monitor agriculture. North Korean celebrated the launch with an official fireworks display in the capital city, Pyongyang. “We hope that the future of our space technology keeps growing and shines like these fireworks in the sky,” said an announcer during the state-sponsored broadcast. Related: Dramatic SpaceX video shows Falcon 9 rocket land, topple over, and explode South Korean officials claim to have found more than 170 pieces of debris thought to be from the North Korean rocket. Unlike previous rocket launches that produced debris suitable for further examination, North Korea is believed to have included a self-destruct feature that exploded the rocket booster to prevent other countries from studying their current technology. The Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite is not the first North Korean satellite to reach orbit and then fail. The nation launched the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 Unit 2 satellite in December of 2012 and reportedly achieved orbit, making North Korea the 10th country capable of deploying satellites using its launch vehicles. Despite North Korea claims that the satellite was deployed and functioning as planned, U.S. officials reported the satellite was “tumbling out of control.” Visual data obtained by Spain, Italy, and the U.K..also suggested the satellite was tumbling as it orbited the Earth. Unlike this most recent launch, fragments of the rocket used to deploy the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 Unit 2 were collected in 2012 and examined by South Korean missile experts. Their examination suggests the North Korean engineers relied on old technology from the 1960s and 1970s for their rocket design.
