Daca Dreamers: Obama slams axing of young migrant scheme

World
Former US President Barack Obama has attacked the Trump administration for scrapping his scheme to protect young undocumented migrants from deportation. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme was rescinded on Tuesday, in a move that could affect some 800,000 beneficiaries. While existing recipients will see no impact for at least six months, no new applications can now be made.Appealing to Congress, Mr Obama said the decision was "cruel" and "wrong".The so-called "Dreamers", mostly Latin Americans, were able to apply for work and study permits under the policy he introduced five years ago.Reaction as it happenedDaca revoked - what you need to knowThe Trump administration argues that the programme, which Mr Obama bypassed Congress in order to enact, was unconstitutional...

A young tagged hen harrier has disappeared in Aberdeenshire in what RSPB Scotland described as "highly suspicious" circumstances.Calluna, a female harrier, was fitted with a satellite tag earlier this year at a nest on the National Trust for Scotland's Mar Lodge Estate near Braemar.It was part of RSPB Scotland's Hen Harrier LIFE project.Calluna's last recorded position was on a grouse moor north of Ballater.Scottish Land and Estates said local land managers rejected any suggestion the loss of signal from the tag was connected to grouse moor management.The transmitter's data was being monitored, and showed that the bird fledged from the nest in July.

Cassini hints at young age for Saturn's rings

Cassini hints at young age for Saturn's rings

Science
The spectacular rings of Saturn may be relatively young, perhaps just 100 million years or so old.This is the early interpretation of data gathered by the Cassini spacecraft on its final orbits of the giant world. If confirmed, it means we are looking at Saturn at a very special time in the age of the Solar System. Cassini is scheduled to make only two more close-in passes before driving itself to destruction in Saturn's atmosphere on 15 September. The probe is being disposed of in this way because it will soon run out of fuel. That would render it uncontrollable, and mission managers at the US space agency Nasa do not want it crashing into - and contaminating - moons that could conceivably host microbial lifeforms. The approaching end means scientists and engineers are now taking risks wi...
