Iran announces partial withdrawal from nuclear deal

Iran announces partial withdrawal from nuclear deal

World
May 8 (UPI) -- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani declared Wednesday that the country would partially stop complying with a landmark nuclear deal it signed in 2015 with six other nations. The announcement comes a year to the day since President Donald Trump wholly withdrew the United States from the commitment that limited Iran's nuclear fuel production for 15 years, citing those limitations were inadequate and that the deal was "defective at its core." On Wednesday, Rouhani said in a nationally televised speech that he informed the other signatories of the deal -- Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia -- that they had 60 days to decide to either pull out of the deal or trade for oil with Iran in violation American-imposed sanctions, the New York Times reported. "The path we have chose...
Partial solar eclipse to cast lunar shadows across Asia, Alaska

Partial solar eclipse to cast lunar shadows across Asia, Alaska

Science
Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Sky watchers across much of East Asia, Siberia, the North Pacific and parts of Alaska can spend the first weekend of the new year catching a glimpse of a partial solar eclipse. The moon's central shadow, the umbra, will miss Earth, passing several hundred miles above the North Pole, but its broader, outer shadow, called the penumbra, will darken portions of the Northern Hemisphere on Saturday and Sunday. If the moon was just a bit closer to Earth and circled the Earth in the same orbital plane, every new moon would spawn a total solar eclipse. But the moon's orbit is slightly askew, causing the moon's shadow to miss Earth more often than not. Interestingly, this weekend's partial solar eclipse will move backwards in time, beginning to the west of the International Date Lin...
