‘World’s highest battleground’: Indian soldier rescued from icy tomb on Siachen Glacier (VIDEO)

Source: RT

An Indian soldier, buried six days ago when an avalanche hit one of the world’s most unforgiving war zones, has been rescued from the snow alive.

India and Pakistan are fighting a very cold war in the Himalaya Mountain range, some 20,000ft above sea level, in what has been labelled the world’s highest battleground.

For three decades, the warring countries have been in dispute over the ownership of what is a very inhospitable environment - the Siachen Glacier.

Exclusive: Iran wants euro payment for new and outstanding oil sales - source

Source: Reuters

Iran wants to recover tens of billions of dollars it is owed by India and other buyers of its oil in euros and is billing new crude sales in euros, too, looking to reduce its dependence on the U.S. dollar following last month's sanctions relief.

A source at state-owned National Iranian Oil Co (NIOC) told Reuters that Iran will charge in euros for its recently signed oil contracts with firms including French oil and gas major Total, Spanish refiner Cepsa and Litasco, the trading arm of Russia's Lukoil.

"In our invoices we mention a clause that buyers of our oil will have to pay in euros, considering the exchange rate versus the dollar around the time of delivery," the NIOC source said.

Lukoil and Total declined to comment, while Cepsa did not respond to a request for comment.

Why US can’t ignore Colorado’s pot ‘experiment

Evidence keeps rolling in that the Rocky Mountain state’s marijuana legalization, in clear violation of federal drug laws, has negative spillovers. If federal officials won’t act, other states should take heed of legal weed.

Since 2014, President Obama has watched Colorado’s so-called “experiment” with legal use of marijuana by adults. His Justice Department told US prosecutors not to enforce federal laws – laws that regard pot as harmful and illegal – unless two things happen: Either individual users violate a state’s own pot laws (especially children) or a state becomes a major exporter of pot.

Now the evidence for federal action is getting hard to ignore.

An investigation by Associated Press finds criminal cartels akin to those in Mexico are growing weed among Colorado’s sanctioned pot warehouses and farms and then shipping the product wholesale to other states, “pocketing millions of dollars from the sale.” The trafficking is so easy that many exporters simply mail the stuff. In the first year of legalization, seizures of Colorado pot by the Postal Service were about 470 pounds, up from 57 pounds in 2010. Colorado’s United States Attorney John Walsh admitted to AP that “there’s a lot more of this activity than there was two years ago.”

And in December, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration revealed evidence that minors in Colorado lead the nation in monthly marijuana use. As pot use among teens nationwide has declined, it may be going up in the Rocky Mountain state.

Despite these trends, the White House announced last week that Mr. Obama would not be taking action on marijuana during his last year in office. This does not mean, however, that there will be no federal action in 2016. The Supreme Court is expected to rule soon on whether Nebraska and Oklahoma can take their neighboring state to court for operating “a massive criminal enterprise” that encourages the illegal transport of pot across state lines.

California cities banning dispensaries ahead of deadline.

Merced County’s three largest cities have been among the many across the state that have rushed to establish ordinances regulating cannabis in response to the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act which says, among other things, that cities that don’t have ordinances in place by March 1 will fall under state law. An effort to remove the deadline and give cities more time to create these regulations is being made in Sacramento.

Thanks Jerry!
