Scientists solve mystery of moving Death Valley rocks

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A solution to the longstanding mystery of why rocks move erratically across an isolated patch of California's Death Valley finally emerged on Thursday, when researchers published a study showing the driving force was sheets of wind-driven ice. Trails from the movement of the rocks, which show them changing direction suddenly in their movement across the so-called Racetrack Playa, have long befuddled scientists and the general public. People wondered: How were the rocks moved #facebook #Politics #India #China #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico

Chinese interceptions of U.S. military planes could intensify due to submarine base

HONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) - One Chinese naval officer has advice for fighter pilots intercepting U.S. surveillance planes in the wake of an incident over the South China Sea last week that Washington condemned as dangerous - fly even closer.

Indonesia's rice-for-poor scheme to test new president

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's powerful anti-graft agency will launch a probe into the nation's subsidised rice scheme unless major flaws are fixed, threatening moves to expand the role of the state food buying agency into other staples such as corn, beef and sugar. With nearly a third of the rice estimated to go missing and allegations of some rotting before it gets to poor families, the future of the scheme and the wider issue of food security will be an early policy test for president-elect Joko Widodo. Widodo has promised cleaner, more efficient government when he takes office in October and along with fixing dysfunctional state bodies also faces tough economic decisions such as whether to rein in fuel subsidies that have blown out the budget #facebook #India #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Entertainment
