Restrictions on Huawei Technologies may temporarily be scaled back, the US Commerce Department noted on Friday after blacklisting the Chinese tech giant under President Donald Trump’s ‘national emergency’ declaration. The department might issue a temporary general license for 90 days to give companies using Huawei's equipment enough time to maintain their communications network while switching to alternatives, Reuters reported. The possible award of a general license however would not apply to new transactions, the Commerce Department noted. Also on rt.com US adds Chinese telecom Huawei to trade blacklist Washington added Huawei to its blacklist on Thursday after Trump ruled that the Chinese firm could “undermine US national security or foreign policy interests,” particularly in developing America’s 5G network.

When bosses of house-building companies receive hundred million-pound bonuses to perform a basic commercial role but can’t provide quality products or decent customer service, you know something has gone wrong. Government subsidies like ‘Help to Buy’ have gone straight from the bank accounts of home buyers into the pockets of homebuilders, while keeping house prices artificially high. How do the so-called ‘home builders’ get away with it? And what about the new homeowner’s who, having made the biggest purchase of their lives, are now stuck in defective sub-standard houses and a legal standoff? Ross Ashcroft is joined by the designer and CEO of Open Systems Lab, Alastair Parvin, and engineer and homebuyer Paul Smith.

A ‘dense bullet’ of dark matter a million times larger than the sun may have plowed through the Milky Way, dragging stars out of line behind it, in an astrophysical model that explains a mysterious ’glitch’ in the galaxy. The “galactic hit-and-run” theory explains the ragged gap discovered in GD-1, the longest stellar stream in the galaxy, according to Ana Bonaca, a fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who presented her theory at the American Physical Society last month. Instead of the single smooth-edged gap one would expect to find at the origin point of the stellar stream, GD-1 has a second gap, with a “spur” of stars hanging off, as if they were dragged by gravity behind some huge “dark impactor” barreling through the universe. Also on rt.com Moon is geologically active – and SHRINKING, seismic readings show Why a gigantic blob of dark matter? “We can’t map [the impactor] to … [Read more...] about Are dark matter ‘clumps’ tearing holes in the Milky Way?
To open this episode, Lee reports on the bipartisan consensus for America’s military adventures. Democrats and Republicans are practically unanimous in supporting the US’ regime change operation in Venezuela, and now that seems like it has failed, they’ve moved on to pushing for war with Iran. Supporters of peace, on the other hand, have been marginalized and ignored in the political debate. In the second half of the show, Lee interviews investigative journalist Dave Lindorff. Lindorff covered the Pentagon’s accounting fraud in an article for the Nation. The $21 trillion in unaccounted adjustments in the Pentagon’s budget over the last two decades is a scandal that has received shamefully little coverage in the news. Lindorff is one of a few journalists who have actually worked on the story. In the interview, they talk about the Pentagon’s failed audit, the nuance of unaccounted adjustments to the budget not being the same as money that was spent, … [Read more...] about Trump/Bolton want war, & the Pentagon’s massive budgeting fraud
