L.A. man accused of smuggling king cobras in potato chip cansA Los Angeles man was arrested on Tuesday after federal prosecutors said he arranged to smuggle into the United States three live, highly venomous king cobra snakes hidden in potato chip canisters. Rodrigo Franco, 34, was charged with illegally importing merchandise into the country in connection with a parcel from Hong Kong that was intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents on March 2 containing the 2-foot (0.61 meter)-long snakes concealed inside the canisters. Three albino Chinese soft-shelled turtles were also found in the package, prosecutors said, adding that Franco on that same day mailed a box to Hong Kong with six protected turtles inside.

John McCain returns to Senate and tears into Republicans: 'All we've done is make Obamacare more popular'Senator John McCain, the 30-year Senate veteran diagnosed last week with an aggressive form of brain cancer, recently returned to Congress to help advance a Republican healthcare plan that even he decried as a “shell of a bill”. The bill Mr McCain helped to advance – a version of the “repeal and replace” bill passed by the House – is notably unpopular with voters. The Congressional Budget Office estimates it will result in 23 million people losing health coverage in the next 10 years.

This massive fish species was somehow only just discovered

Researchers regularly remind us that the world's oceans are still hiding some truly remarkable secrets, but when we imagine new species of ocean life it's usually tucked away in the crushing depths, or so tiny that we somehow didn't notice it up until now. An all-new species of ocean sunfish was just discovered that throws those expectations completely out of the window, weighing in at over two tons and making regular trips near the surface in order to keep warm, but it's a remarkable find nonetheless.

Researchers led by Marianne Nyegaard of Australia's Murdoch University discovered the new sunfish species after looking closely at over 150 DNA samples from various sunfish. After matching three of the DNA samples with known species, the team realized that the fourth was completely new and undocumented. They subsequently nicknamed it the "hoodwinker sunfish" thanks to its ability to remain hidden for so long.

But despite having DNA samples that proved the presence of an unknown species, nobody knew exactly what it looked like. After hunting for a specimen that matched the DNA for a year, Nyegaard got a tip that four sunfish had washed up on a beach in New Zealand, and it was at that point that she finally found what she had been searching for.

Like the other members of the ocean sunfish family, the new species — officially named Mola tecta — is absolutely huge. Its massive, disc-shaped body is punctuated by large fins on its top and bottom, and its bony structure pushes its weight over the two ton mark.

The hoodwinker sunfish has since been spotted in several different places, including the waters off South Africa, Chile, Australia and New Zealand.



Russia deploys forces to police Syria safe zones Click Here to Open in a New Window

Russia deploys forces to police Syria safe zonesRussia has deployed military police to monitor two safe zones being established in Syria, it was announced on Monday, with officials touting it as a new era of US cooperation. Senior commander Sergei Rudskoi said Russian forces had set up checkpoints and observation posts around a zone in the south-west and in another covering Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus. The two areas are part of a broader Moscow-backed plan to create four "de-escalation zones" in rebel-held parts of Syria.

Rexit? Rex Tillerson 'to quit as Donald Trump's secretary of state before the end of the year' Click Here to Open in a New Window

Rexit? Rex Tillerson 'to quit as Donald Trump's secretary of state before the end of the year'US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is growing increasingly disillusioned with President Donald Trump and could leave his administration before the end of the year, according to two sources who spoke to CNN. Mr Tillerson has found himself undermined by the president, who openly contradicts him and appears disinterested in the work of Mr Tillerson's team of career diplomats at the state department. Friends of Mr Tillerson's had previously believed he would ride out the rollercoaster at Foggy Bottom - home of the state department. But CNN on Monday reported that the friends had noticed "a change in tone," and thought that he could well be planning on leaving Washington. Rex Tillerson at the state department on June 9 "His frustration is hardly a secret and it has spilled out publicly at times," CNN reported.  "But friends sense a change of late. "Two sources who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity over the weekend said they would not be surprised if there was a 'Rexit' from Foggy Bottom sooner that that." The 65-year-old Texan has made no secret of his struggle with the role. Reluctant in front of the camera, in his first interview he said he had only taken the job because his wife thought it was a good idea. The president has made his life harder by blocking a number of people Mr Tillerson wished to appoint, including  stopping the hiring of Elliott Abrams as Mr Tillerson's second in command, because Mr Abrams was critical of Mr Trump and his policy positions during the 2016 campaign. The state department is described as a hollowed-out and demoralised institution under Mr Tillerson, who has failed to convince his boss that diplomacy is something to be prized. Mr Tillerson reportedly got involved in a heated argument about staffing, in which Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, reportedly called Mr Tillerson "unprofessional". During his tirade, inside the office of chief of staff Reince Priebus, Mr Tillerson reportedly quarreled with the director of presidential personnel, Johnny DeStefano, and made clear he didn’t want the White House to “have any role in staffing.” Mr Tillerson has also been undermined on policy. Rex Tillerson with his Saudi counterpart He advocated remaining neutral during the Gulf dispute with Qatar, saying: “We call on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt to ease the blockade against Qatar. There are humanitarian consequences to this blockade." Hours later, Mr Trump went against his position and openly backed Saudi Arabia. “The nation of Qatar, unfortunately has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level,” said Mr Trump. “And in the wake of that conference, nations came together and spoke to me about confronting Qatar over its behaviour." Mr Tillerson unsuccessfully argued against Mr Trump pulling the US out of the Paris climate change agreement, and when asked whether he still wishes the US was part of the deal, he replied: "My views haven't changed." In June The New York Times spoke to three ambassadors – two in Europe, one in Asia – who said they were so muddled by the lack of leadership from the state department that they had taken to referring their inquiries to the national security council instead. Were Mr Tillerson to resign, he would be far from the shortest-tenured secretary of state. Elihu Washburne only served 11 days under Ulysses Grant, before being made ambassador to France.
