Defiant Trump isolated after defense of hard right  

Defiant Trump isolated after defense of hard rightBarely 200 days into his already chaotic presidency, Donald Trump found himself an isolated figure on Wednesday after his extraordinary defense of white nationalist protesters sent business leaders and political allies scurrying for cover. Trump upended the norms of American political discourse on Tuesday when, in a ferocious back-and-forth with reporters, he declared there had been "very fine people, on both sides" at a clash between anti-fascists and white supremacists. Trump's initial response was seen as mealy-mouthed by those demanding a full-throated condemnation of racism and violence, but his further remarks on Tuesday -- when he doubled down on his claim that there had been "blame on both sides" -- set off a political firestorm that may come to be seen as a turning point in his presidency.

Meet the Nokia 8: Specs, price and release date revealed  

Meet the Nokia 8: Specs, price and release date revealedOn Wednesday evening, HMD Global, the Finnish company that acquired Nokia's feature phone business last year, unveiled the first flagship Android phone under the Nokia brand. The Nokia 8 will go on sale in Europe in September for 599 euros (~$700), but there is no word yet on a US release. Having been the subject of dozens of leaks in the weeks and months leading up to its official unveiling, we already know most of what there is to know about the Nokia 8. HMD's Android phone features a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (with microSD support). Reasonable specs for a 2017 flagship, but the design isn't quite as contemporary. HMD's Nokia 8 retains the display bezels that Samsung and LG have eliminated in their latest offerings, as well as a traditional home button with a fingerprint scanner under the display. Rather than attempt to compete with the Galaxy S8 or the LG V30 on design, HMD is instead packing the Nokia 8 with intriguing hardware. For example, the phone feature Zeiss lenses on both the front and back cameras, both of which are 13-megapixel sensors with a dual-camera array on the back. The camera software is mostly untouched, but HMD has added a "bothie" mode which allows both the front and rear cameras to capture photos or videos at the same time. HMD also implemented Nokia's Ozo Audio, which gives users the ability to capture 360-degree audio while recording videos. HMD Global plans to launch the Nokia 8 in four different color options: glossy blue and copper, as well as matte blue and grey. It will be available in Europe next month for 599 euros, joining the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3. It's still unclear if the Nokia 8 will follow the Nokia 6 to the US.

T-Mobile just took a huge step towards beating Verizon once and for all  

T-Mobile just took a huge step towards beating Verizon once and for all

This April, T-Mobile spent $8 billion on new low-band spectrum to improve its wireless network. As of right now, that network is online. A "cluster site" in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is the first place in the country to be lit up with T-Mobile's 600MHz LTE network.

Neville Ray, T-Mobile's Chief Technology Officer, described the rollout as a "massive milestone" for T-Mobile, and one that should "materially close" T-Mobile's existing coverage gap with Verizon "by the end of the year."

To call it a "massive milestone" is really an understatement. Normally, rolling out new spectrum takes years. Verizon, for example, bought 700MHz spectrum from the FCC in a similar auction in 2008, and didn't turn the network on until 2010. Ray said that "the FCC only granted the licenses in June, so to have the network online by August...is much faster than anyone expected."

600MHz spectrum is going to be a big deal for T-Mobile as it should finally fix the network's coverage problems. Cell networks operate across dozens of different "bands," and broadly speaking, the lower the frequency, the better the coverage. Lower-frequency radio waves travel further and penetrate objects better, which in the real world means superior coverage in rural areas and inside buildings -- everywhere that Verizon's network, thanks to a wealth of low-band spectrum, currently excels.

The site in Wyoming that's live today is the first of many that should go live by the end of the year. The map above (from a FCC filing) shows where T-Mobile is planning on building out coverage to in 2017, and that includes 600MHz sites in Wyoming, Northwest Oregon, West Texas, Southwest Kansas, the Oklahoma panhandle, Western North Dakota, Maine, Coastal North Carolina, Central Pennsylvania, Central Virginia and Eastern Washington.

Rolling out 600MHz is particularly challenging because in most cases, there are TV stations using the spectrum right now. Those stations are moving to different frequencies, and T-Mobile is paying out of its own pocket to accelerate the process.

Unfortunately, all that doesn't mean that T-Mobile's customers are going to have fantastic service overnight. 600MHz isn't a frequency that's been used for LTE anywhere in the world before, so no current devices support it. Ray confirmed that "Samsung and LG will have phones in stores by the end of the year" that support 600MHz, and also said that "as T-Mobile gets more partners and devices, there will be a tidal wave of [600MHz compatible devices] in 2018." He also stressed that T-Mobile is putting" as much, if not more effort into devices than the network," but "the network has to come first."

In other words: it's an exciting time to be a T-Mobile customer.

Everywhere that T-Mobile's 600MHz network will reach within a few years

 

600MHz isn't the only place that T-Mobile is working to improve its network, either. Right now, T-Mobile is deploying thousands of small cell sites across the US, all of which are compatible with License Assisted Access (LAA), a technology that uses Wi-Fi spectrum to achieve crazy-fast speeds. That will help with network congestion in places like airports and shopping malls, where thousands of devices can be trying to download a Snapchat at once.

Ray also mentioned one piece of news to BGR that bodes well for the future: all the 600MHz radios that T-Mobile is deploying right now should be compatible with the 5G standard when it's finalized next year. T-Mobile has already committed to having a nationwide 5G network by the end of the decade, and this is is going to be a big part of it. When the 5G standards are finalized, T-Mobile shouldn't have to change anything on the cell towers to convert its 600MHz LTE network to 5G.

The bottom line is simple. Right now -- depending on which benchmark you look at -- T-Mobile is equal or better than Verizon and AT&T on download speed, but a little behind in coverage. The record-speed 600Mhz deployment will close that coverage gap, and then some. At the same time, T-Mobile is building out much of the infrastructure that will power 5G in the coming years, all while also deploying advanced LTE tech that can deliver gigabit speeds right now. Verizon and AT&T are officially on notice.

'It still fits': Engagement ring missing for more than a decade turns up on garden carrot  

'It still fits': Engagement ring missing for more than a decade turns up on garden carrotA woman who was resigned to never seeing her beautiful engagement ring ever again - and had bought a smaller one as a replacement - was shocked when her daughter-in-law found it on a carrot. The family had harvested some carrots from their farm in Alberta, Canada, for dinner, and one had grown around the engagement ring, which was then pulled from the ground. Mary Grams, 84, had lost her beloved ring in 2004 while she was in the garden, and thought she would never see it again. "I recognized it right away," she said. Mary Grams, 84, got her missing ring back when her daughter-in-law found it while harvesting carrots on the family farm in Alberta, Canada. Credit:  CBC News She thinks she lost it while pulling a large weed from the garden. "We looked high and low on our hands and knees," she told CBC news.  "We couldn't find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it." Mrs Grams has had the ring since 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman.  Mary, 84, says she didn't know if they were kidding or not, but when her granddaughter brought the carrot over - she knew: "It's mine!" #yegpic.twitter.com/Ft7IMUeSMR— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 The ring was found by her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley. "I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law," she said, "because no other women have lived on that farm. "I asked my husband if he recognized the ring. And he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot." A few weeks after losing her engagement ring, Mary bought herself this one, much smaller, to replace it. #Camrosepic.twitter.com/sg9WN4y1Pb— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017  Mrs Grams said she is pleased the ring was found. "I'm going to wear it because it still fits," she said.

How many nukes are in the world and what could they destroy?  

How many nukes are in the world and what could they destroy?Tensions over nuclear weapons have been raised further after Donald Trump said North Korea will be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen" after US intelligence concluded the rogue state has produced a miniaturised nuclear warhead.  This latest move comes amid increasing concern over North Korea's military capabilities, with the new US administration upping its rhetoric in response.  While the Pyongyang regime increases the frequency with which it is conducting missile tests, Donald Trump's defence secretary Jim 'Mad Dog' Mattis has previously warned North Korea of an "effective and overwhelming" response if Pyongyang used nuclear weapons. Elsewhere, rhetoric hints at a return of the expansion of nuclear arsenals across the world. In December, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a meeting of defence chiefs that strengthening nuclear capability should be a key objective for 2017. Donald Trump then took to Twitter to respond, vowing to do the same. The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 22, 2016 Such rhetoric has led to concerns about the world's nuclear capacity and the unpredictability of those in charge of the warheads. It seems the world is a long way from "coming to its senses" - with millions of kilotons already in military service around the world. Between them, the world's nuclear-armed states have around 15,000 warheads - the majority of which belong to the US and Russia. It is estimated that just under 10,000 of these are in military service, with the rest awaiting dismantlement, according to the Arms Control Association.  Putin says Russia should strengthen its nuclear arsenal 00:51 Which countries have nuclear weapons? There are five nuclear-weapon states in the world: China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States. These are officially recognised as possessing such weapons by the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. This treaty acknowledges and legitimises their arsenals, but they are not supposed to build or maintain them forever. Indeed, they have committed to eliminate them.  There are also four other countries that have nuclear weapons: Pakistan, India, Israel and North Korea. These countries didn't sign the Treaty, and together possess an estimated 340 nuclear weapons.  But it's Russia and the US that have by far the most in the world - dominating all other countries by collectively sharing 88 per cent of the world's arsenal of stockpiled nukes. This figure increases to 93 per cent when we consider retired nukes.  How the world's 15,000 nukes are divided How deadly could these nuclear weapons be? The world's current collection of 14,900 nuclear weapons possesses enough power to kill millions of people and flatten dozens of cities.  According to Telegraph research, it is estimated that the US and Russian arsenals combined have power equating to 6,600 megatons. This is a tenth of the total solar energy received by Earth every minute. According to the NukeMap website, the dropping of the B-83, the largest bomb in the current US arsenal, would kill 1.4m people in the first 24 hours. A further 3.7m people would be injured, as the thermal radiation radius reached 13.km.  Likewise, the "Tsar Bomba" is the largest USSR bomb tested. If this bomb was dropped on New York, it is estimated that it could kill 7.6m people and injure 4.2m more. The nuclear fallout could reach an approximate area of 7,880km on a 15mph wind, impacting millions more people.  Both America and Russia's arsenals are regulated by several treaties that place limits on the numbers and kinds of warheads and delivery systems they have.   If either country were to expand their nuclear capacity even further, as Trump and Putin have hinted at, it could shatter these agreements and plunge the world into a new Cold War. North Korean missile ranges Our figures on nuclear weapons, based on statistics from the Arms Control Association, are mainly estimates because of the secretive nature with which most governments treat information about their arsenals. 


 

Nigeria suicide bombers kill 28, wound 82

Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in Alaska  

Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in AlaskaA mama black bear was caught on camera charging a Siberian husky at a campground in Alaska.  The recently released clip, from a campground in Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, shows a bear and her three cubs approaching a trailer from the woods on July 5. When the bear spots the dog it delivers a bluff charge, and the bear and husky get into a brief fight off camera. A woman can then be heard yelling at the bear, which returns to its cubs and runs away.  Tom Henderson, who uploaded the video earlier this month, said in an email that his wife is the person heard yelling in the clip. Fortunately, the dog was unharmed in the scuffle, despite its screams. Henderson also said that bear sightings are not uncommon in the camp, though they have not had a problem like this before. Unfortunate interactions between humans and wildlife are unfortunately common in the area. In June a man was mauled after brown bear with a sow got defensive.  Mashable has reached out to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for additional information.
