Boys played and chatted on a rickety wooden ramp under a baking sun in West Java, while just below their feet flowed one of Indonesia's most horribly polluted rivers, clogged with hundreds of tonnes of smelly trash. Authorities in the nation of 260 million are battling a lack of recycling culture or environmental awareness to achieve an ambitious target of a 70 percent cut in marine plastic debris by 2025, despite having devoted $1 billion a year to the task. "Every time it rains and floods, the whole village goes down to help with the trash and clean the river," said Marzuki, a resident of Tarumajaya, on the banks of the Pisang Batu river that carries along waste from villages upstream.

The U.S. Navy is considering developing robotic warships. Cheaper to build than today ship's and expendable, the unmanned vessels could help the Navy quickly to grow -- and could allow the fleet to develop new tactics for battling a high-tech foe.
The Chinese smartphone maker said it’s bought almost 20 million of its Class B shares since Jan. 17. Dilution -- or dividing a company into more pieces -- will reduce Xiaomi’s earnings-per-share unless it cancels some repurchased shares. Xiaomi fell as much as 1.1 percent on Wednesday, before paring the drop to trade little changed.
In a risk-laden global economy, Singapore’s advantages are beginning to stand out. Dyson Ltd. wasn’t the first to cite business-friendly factors for its decision, even beyond the city state’s low political risk and favorable taxes. Singapore has one of the most business-friendly tax regimes in the world: rates for corporate tax, at 17 percent, and personal income, at 22 percent, each beat regional averages around the world, according to data compiled by tax and financial advisory firm KPMG LLP.
Iowa's Republican-controlled legislature passed the restriction in May 2018, outlawing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often at six weeks and before a woman realizes she is pregnant. A fetus that is viable outside the womb, usually at 24 weeks, is widely considered the threshold in the United States to prohibit an abortion. The district court decision is a victory for supporters of abortion rights, but abortion opponents have vowed to take the fight to Iowa's appellate courts, the Des Moines Register and other media reported.
On Sunday, millions of people around the world watched as the Earth’s shadow covered the moon in a copper-reddish glow in what was known as a “Super Blood Wolf Moon.” It was the first full moon of the year (a wolf moon) and it came at a time when the moon was also closest to Earth (a super moon) and going through a lunar eclipse (a blood moon). Many astronomers speculated what had happened, but one of them, Jose Maria Madiedo from the University of Huelva in Spain, quickly confirmed that it was indeed a meteorite that hit the moon. “A rock hits the moon during the total eclipse,” Madiedo tweeted on the morning of Jan. 22.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos is one of the few places where environmental activists attend the same events as the private jet crowd, and get a chance to try to convince them to change their ways face-to-face. Coming is "not for us a given, because this is a group of elites who have gotten us into the lot of messes that we have around the world right now," the environmental organisation's executive director Jennifer Morgan told AFP. Last year, US President Donald Trump came to address the WEF just months after announcing he would abandon the Paris climate agreement.
