Qatar has lashed out at fellow Gulf states, over what it sees as an attempt to limit its sovereignty and foreign policy. That's after they presented Doha, which they accuse of sponsoring terrorism, with a list of demands. The countries recently cut diplomatic and trade ties with the sheikdom - and say the demands must be met if relations are to be restored.

CANADIAN SPECIAL FORCES SNIPER KILLS AN ISIS FIGHTER FROM TWO MILES AWAY IN THE LONGEST CONFIRMED KILL SHOT IN HISTORY.

• World No1 beaten 7-6 (7-4), 6-2 by Australian world No90• ‘I didn’t create loads of chances, really. I didn’t return particularly well’Andy Murray looked some way removed from the greatest champion this tournament has ever had when the late substitute Jordan Thompson dumped the world No1 out of the Aegon Championships in the first round on another sweltering day of upsets, mishaps and drama.The 23-year-old Australian, ranked 90 in the world and drafted in as a lucky loser when Aljaz Bedene withdrew in the morning of day two with a recurrence of a wrist injury, trusted his talent and stuck to a solid grasscourt game behind a big serve on his way to winning 7-6, 6-2 in an hour and 43 minutes. His finishing stroke was his 12th ace. Continue reading...
Five-time champion Andy Murray’s Wimbledon preparations suffered a blow with a 7-6, 6-2 defeat to Jordan Thompson at Queen’sStan Wawrinka: ‘Winning Wimbledon too far away for me to talk about’And feel free to email Jacob or tweet him @JacobSteinberg 6.09pm BST It’s Andy Murray’s first defeat Queen’s since he lost in the third round to Radek Stepanek in 2014 - funnily enough that one also finished 7-6, 6-2. Murray was the defending Wimbledon champion that year as well. He went on to lose badly to Grigor Dimitrov in the last eight. He’ll hope this setback to Jordan Thompson, the world No90, isn’t an omen before he heads to the All England Club. He was pretty awful today, although it should be pointed out that the first match back on grass can be tricky for the top players. Murray wouldn’t have been expecting that performance, though, and what must also be acknowledged is that Thompson played extremely well and his win’s blown this tournament wide open. Murray, Wawrinka and Raonic are all out. It’s up for grabs! Thanks for reading. Bye. 6.06pm BST The applause from the locals is respectful as Thompson, playing rather brilliantly, drills a forehand down the line for 15-0 and whacks an ace past Murray to lead 30-0. But he won’t win this match without dealing with a few nerves: two poor forehands allow Murray to fight back to 30-all. He settles down with a big serve that Murray can only block into the net, bringing up a match point. It’s all he needs. He swings another ace down the middle and Andy Murray, the defending champion, is out! Continue reading...
Началась эта история с того, что в результате неудачных экспериментов с ядром смартфона Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (он же GT-I8160, aka codina), приводящих к ребутам девайса, оказалось так, что раздел EFS перестал читаться. Собственно, сами эксперименты отношения к данному вопросу не имеют — возможно, как-нибудь дойду и до них, но это выходит за рамки данной статьи. Хотя и раздел EFS – один из наиболее важных на этом смартфоне, убийство данного раздела само по себе не приводит к катастрофическим последствиям, поскольку его все еще можно восстановить, например, с другого телефона, после чего, при желании сменить WIFI MAC и BT MAC. На данном устройстве IMEI хранится не на разделе EFS, а CSPSA (Crash Safe Parameter Storage Area, дословно переводится как «Область хранения параметров, устойчивая к крашам»). Вот если с этим разделом пойдет что-то не так, это уже будет не столь весело, собственно об этом и пойдет речь далее. Кого заинтересовал, прошу под кат. Читать дальше →
The potential alliance between the Tories and the reactionary Northern Irish party shows how deeply this country is in the mireWith counterintuitive brilliance, the Conservatives have assembled a cabinet full of the same ashen-faced misfits voters already rejected. They have wrecked a failing pub in an insurance flood and rebuilt it, not as flats or a leisure centre, but as an identical failing pub.Johnson, Hunt and Gove. It’s as if DC Comics, having mislaid Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, had to launch a movie franchise based on Ace The Bat-Hound, Matter-Eater Lad and the Super-Moby Dick of Space.

Robert Farley Security, The MiG-21 never saw combat on the Central Front in a NATO-Warsaw Pact war, but it certainly has seen its share of action. China has ended production on the J-7, meaning that we have seen the last MiG-21 variant roll the assembly line. Croatia and Romania will dispose of their Fishbeds in the next five years. After a spate of accidents, India is finally retiring its MiG-21s (assuming it can ever actually acquire or produce a replacement). Chinese J-7s have been relegated to local defense and training duties. This hardly means the end of the Fishbed, however. Many of the J-7 and F-7 models remain of fairly recent vintage, and can stay in service for quite some time. Bangladesh acquired the last dozen F-7s in 2013, and won’t need a replacement anytime soon. And plenty of air forces simply have no requirement for anything much more sophisticated or expensive than a Fishbed. There may never be a hundred-year fighter (although the B-52 may quite possibly reach that number before final retirement). The MiG-21 will easily reach sixty, however, and probably seventy without breaking a sweat. It remains one of the iconic fighters of the supersonic age. Military aircraft can have notoriously short lifespans, especially during periods of technological ferment. The most elite aircraft of World War I could become obsolete in a matter of months. Things weren’t much different in World War II. And at the dawn of the jet age, entire fleets of aircraft became passé as technologies matured. The advanced fighters that fought in the skies over Korea became junk just a few years later. But a few designs stand the test of the time. The B-52 Stratofortress first flew in 1952, yet remains in service today. New C-130s continue to roll off the production line, based on a design that became operational in 1954. But those are bombers and transport aircraft; they don’t fight one another. Fighters face a special problem of longevity, because they must compete directly with newer models. Thus, very few fighters have had long lifespans, either in production or in service. The MiG-21 “Fishbed” is an exception. Origins Read full article

SETH BARRON: Incitement To Violence. “Democrats may be horrified by today’s attempted massacre of the GOP House baseball team by an avowed progressive, but their incendiary demands for ‘massive resistance’ since November have been an open plea for the escalation of words into violent action.

Rickie Fowler hits 7-under-par 65 in first round at Erin HillsPilot being treated for injuries after US Open blimp crashOfficial US Open leader board 1.48am BST Schauffele clacks his tee shot at 9 to 10 feet. Can he join Rickie Fowler, who finished his round over seven hours ago, at the top of the US Open leader board? No, not quite. But he’s played his second nine in 32 strokes, and signs for a superb 66. Tomorrow promises to be an exciting day. As does the rest of the week, with a few of the game’s leading lights - Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day - already out of it! Nighty night!-7: Fowler-6: Casey, Schauffele-5: Harman, Fleetwood, Koepka-4: Reed, Na, Leishman, Hadwin 1.43am BST First up, Bernd Weisberger birdies 9, a welcome end to a round that was beginning to fray around the edges. He was -4 after 2, but bogeys at 4 and 8 had dropped him down the leader board. That’s a 69, though, and he’s just outside the top ten at -3. Continue reading...
