Trump ditches his feud in gracious visit with the pope – POLITICO

‘I won’t forget what you said,’ the president says as their meeting came to a close.

Trump’s stop at the Vatican comes amid a nine-day, multi-nation trip, his first as president. Trump also met Wednesday with Italian political leaders, but the visit with Pope Francis was widely considered one of the trip’s crucial moments, given the rhetoric the two men had hurled at one another from across the Atlantic during the presidential election.

2017 Stanley Cup — Pittsburgh Penguins young stars are filling the gaps

In Game 5 the Penguins were clicking on all cylinders.

The 7-0 rout, which moved Pittsburgh within one game of a return to the Stanley Cup finals, was a reminder of what the Penguins looks like at their best. It’s a mix of star power and key contributions coming from throughout the lineup. It’s winger Bryan Rust returning to action after an upper-body injury with jump, injecting the tired Penguins with a burst of energy they hadn’t felt in a while.

Sidney Crosby and the other Penguins stars can’t repeat all by themselves. Pittsburgh is a win away from a return trip to the Stanley Cup finals thanks to a next-man-up approach and newcomers like Carter Rowney who have shined this postseason.

NASA scientists detect barrier around Earth | PerfScience

An official NASA release informed..

Humans have long been shaping Earth’s landscape, but now scientists know we can shape our near-space environment as well. A certain type of communications — very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications — have been found to interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move. At times, these interactions can create a barrier around Earth against natural high energy particle radiation in space. These results, part of a comprehensive paper on human-induced space weather, were recently published in Space Science Reviews.
