Science
Britain's new polar research ship is ready to go in the water. The newly assembled hull of the RRS Sir David Attenborough is now standing on the slipway of the Cammell Laird yard in Birkenhead, awaiting launch day.

Mozambique ready for next LNG phase

Business
July 9 (UPI) -- Liquefied natural gas will start processing from a field off the coast of Mozambique by 2024 now that the government has the development plans, partners said. Exxon Mobil and Italian energy company Eni lead the Rovuma liquefied natural gas joint venture in Mozambique.

World
June 10 (UPI) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin said Sunday he wants to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump over the concerns of a new arms race and supports another suggestion by Trump to return to the G8.
