Iran says it is drafting complete account of past nuclear work (Cached) 21.4.2014 DNA: Top News
Iran said on Monday it was drafting a comprehensive account of its nuclear activities, but did not indicate whether this would be made available to help the final diplomatic push to resolve a decade-old dispute with the West over the programme. The move could meet Western demands for greater transparency to address concerns that Iran may have been trying to develop a nuclear weapons capability, but Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for Iran's atomic energy agency, made no mention of this. "There are various files on our atomic programme, but we're lacking a comprehensive document, which we are writing now," the official IRNA news agency quoted Kamalvandi as saying. "This is time-consuming, as we need to coordinate with other government bodies, but we hope to have it finished in eight months." This timeframe would take the report past a July 20 deadline for the conclusion of the talks between Iran and six world powers - the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia. The talks are intended to ...

How the US made its Vladmir Putin problem worse (Cached) 21.4.2014 DNA: Top News
In September 2001, as the US reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington's imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that US planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the US military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their US counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin's visit to President George W. Bush's Texas ranch two months later, the US leader, speaking at a local high school, declared his Russian counterpart "a new style of leader, a reformer…, a man who's going to make a huge difference in making the world more peaceful, by working closely with the United States." For a moment, it seemed, the distrust and antipathy of the Cold War were fading. Then, just weeks later, Bush announced that the United States was withdrawing from ...

Is this the craziest mountain bike race in the world? 18.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Each year, 2,000 riders slip, slide and fall down Pic Blanc, in Alpe d'Huez, in search of 'enduro' biking glory. We have a ringside seat and meet some of the riders The air throbs with the sound of helicopters. Loudspeakers blare out indeterminate beats while hundreds of mountain bikers stand quivering with nervous excitement next to bikes so solid they look like they'd survive a nuclear explosion. The crisp morning sunlight glances off the Sarenne glacier and from where they stand, on the summit of the Pic Blanc, the competitors soak up an epic alpine view. Then an air raid siren blasts out the 10-second countdown, ramping up the atmosphere until the energy of every soul on the mountain explodes as the starting tape is lifted and wheels begin to turn. Amid the chaos, a bemused bloke stands holding his skis mumbles: "Not the best day to decide to ski the glacier." The place is Alpe d'Huez, and the race is Megavalanche. The first event was held in 1995, the brainchild of downhill mountain bike pioneer ...
