  • If There’s Life on Europa, Robots Like These Will Find It (Singularity Hub) Britney Schmidt, assistant professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech and principal investigator for the NASA-funded project called SIMPLE, for Sub-ice Investigation of Marine and Planetary-analog Ecosystems, has been participating in experiments deep under the ice of Antarctica. But her real goal is to see what's in the oceans under the ice on Jupiter's moon Europa.

Syria

  • Syria conflict: Russia sends missile system to Tartus base (BBC News) Russia has confirmed it has sent an S-300 air defense missile system to its naval base in Syria's port of Tartus. Defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said the purpose of the system was to guarantee the security of the base from the air. The move comes amid growing tension with the West. On Monday, the US halted talks with Russia on trying to co-ordinate air strikes against jihadists. A ceasefire brokered by Washington and Moscow collapsed last month.

Iraq

  • Iraq warns Turkey of 'regional war' if doesn't withdraw troops (Reuters) Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned Turkey that keeping troops in northern Iraq could lead to a "regional war", according to comments broadcast on state TV on Wednesday. Abadi, who spoke at news conference Tuesday evening, was reacting to the Turkish parliament's decision last week to extend a mandate that allows military operations against terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria for another year.

India

  • Gold Bugs Are Watching the Wrong Central Bank (Bloomberg) It might at first seem counter-intuitive, but the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is the central bank with the biggest influence on gold. India consumes up to 1/3 of the world's gold jewelry and with RBI cutting its reference interest rate and indicating more cuts are to come, the rupee will likely devalue reducing the amount of gold consumed. It looks like that trend has already started.

Colombia

  • Colombia peace deal: President says Farc ceasefire will end this month (BBC News) The ceasefire with Farc rebels will end on 31 October, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has said. Negotiators have resumed talks in Cuba to try to resurrect a peace deal following its rejection in Sunday's referendum. All sides in Colombia want an end to more than 50 years of fighting.
