President Donald Trump on Friday lashed out against multiple career national security officials while praising former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is on trial for charges of money laundering and tax fraud.

When asked about Manafort, Trump said the fact that his former campaign chairman was on trial was “very sad” for the United States.

“I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad,” the president said. “When you look at what’s going on there, I think it’s a very sad day for our country. He worked for me for a very short period of time. He happens to be a very good person. I think it’s very sad what they’ve done to Paul Manafort.”

Trump also attacked multiple former national security officials whom he accused of colluding against him — and he also said that special counsel Robert Mueller had multiple “conflicts” that made him unfit to investigate the president.

“Mueller has a lot of conflicts also directly,” Trump said. “You know that Mr. Mueller is highly conflicted. In fact, Comey is, like, his best friend. I could go into conflict after conflict. Sadly, Mr. Mueller is conflicted. Let him write his report. We did nothing. There’s no collusion.”

There may be far more water on the Moon than previously thought, according to two studies published Monday raising the tantalising prospect that astronauts on future space missions could find refreshment -- and maybe even fuel -- on the lunar surface.

The Moon was believed to be bone dry until around a decade ago when a series of findings suggested that our nearest celestial neighbour has traces of water trapped in the surface.

Two new studies published in Nature Astronomy on Monday suggest there could be much more water than previously thought, including ice stored in permanently shadowed "cold traps" at lunar polar regions.

Asymptomatic coronaagvirus sufferers lose antibodies sooner: study

Published

on

Asymptomatic coronavirus sufferers appear to lose detectable antibodies sooner than people who have exhibited Covid-19 symptoms, according to one of the biggest studies of its kind in Britain published on Tuesday.

The findings by Imperial College London and market research firm Ipsos Mori also suggest the loss of antibodies was slower in 18–24 year-olds compared to those aged 75 and over.

Overall, samples from hundreds of thousands of people across England between mid-June and late September showed the prevalence of virus antibodies fell by more than a quarter.

The research, commissioned by the British government and published Tuesday by Imperial, indicates people's immune response to Covid-19 reduces over time following infection.

Early voting to be hit by heavy rain and flooding as Hurricane Zeta barrels towards the Gulf Coast

Published

Hurricane Zeta is expected to make landfall near Louisiana's border with Mississippi on Wednesday evening as campaigns work to get supporters to the polls and convince any undecided voters to back their candidate.

"Hurricane conditions and life-threatening storm surge are possible along portions of the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday, and Storm Surge and Hurricane Watches are in effect," the National Hurricane Center warned.

"Between Tuesday night and Thursday, heavy rainfall is expected from portions of the central Gulf Coast into the southern Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic states near and in advance of Zeta. This rainfall will lead to flash, urban, small stream, and minor river flooding," the center explained.
