In Pics | Donald Trump and family meet Pope Francis at the Vatican 24.5.2017 DNA: India
Pope Francis urged Donald Trump to use his US presidency to promote peace around the world as the two leaders swapped sparring for smiles in their first face-to-face meeting at the Vatican on Wednesday. Trump's audience with the 80-year-old pontiff, a keenly-anticipated highlight of his first overseas tour, lasted just under half an hour and concluded with both men beaming, for the cameras at least. "He is something," the president later said of his host. "We had a fantastic meeting." The Vatican described the discussions as "cordial" and stressed the two men's joint opposition to abortion and shared concern for persecuted Christians in the Middle East. There was no mention from either side of the two men's profound differences on climate change, migration, the death penalty and other issues. Trump told his host as he left: "Thank you. Thank you. I won't forget what you said." The pope had presented Trump with a medallion engraved with an olive tree, the international symbol of peace. "I give it to you ...

It's getting hotter: New study shows massive increase in moss growth in Antarctic Peninsula 19.5.2017 DNA: Top News
For the naysayers who don’t believe climate change exists, here’s a reality check: Antarctica’s landscape is transforming from white to green, as plant life on the continent grows like never before. As reported by AFP, scientists, who published a paper in Current Biology, have said they have found a sharp increase in plant growth in the past 50 years. Currently, plant life is 0.3% in what used to be a state dominated by ice.    “Temperature increases over roughly the past half century on the Antarctic Peninsula have had a dramatic effect on moss banks growing in the region,” said co-author Matt Amesbury, of the University of Exeter, adding that if this trend continued, then the peninsula would be a much greener place than it is today. Five moss cores — or column-like samples drilled from the Earth — showed evidence of what scientists called “changepoints,” or points in time after which biological activity clearly increased. Areas sampled included three Antarctic islands — Elephant Island, Ardley Island, ...

A humble leader with an iron will 19.5.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Anil Madhav Dave, Union Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, passed away on Thursday following a heart attack. A polite, low-key and mild mannered personality, Dave was a contrast to his predecessor, Prakash Javadekar, who is at ease during public interactions and press briefings. A native of Badnagar, Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, Dave, 60, got involved with social causes early on in life, and had even participated in Jayprakash Narayan’s movement. His politics was moored in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) thought. He joined the outfit as a young man. Dave came to the fore in politics during the late 1990s and early 2000s, playing the role of a behind-the-scenes strategist for the BJP in MP. He was hailed for his organisational skills and strategies in the party’s thumping victory against the Congress in the 2003 Madhya Pradesh state assembly elections, when Uma Bharti unseated Digvijay Singh. He was also a close aide of Uma Bharti when she became the state’s Chief Minister. Dave had ...
