GENEVA - The U.N. World Food Program says it has reached a deal with the Venezuelan government to provide daily school meals to 185,000 of the country’s most vulnerable children by the end of the year. The deal was sealed with a handshake by WFP Director David Beasley and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro Monday in the capital, Caracas. The school feeding program initially will take place in areas where food shortages are most severe. But, WFP spokesman Tomson Phiri says his agency aims to expand the operation over the coming two years to reach 1.5 million students, who often miss out on meals during the day. He says the operation will be conducted without state interference. “Our school meals program will be independent and separate from the national social protection programs," said Phiri. "In Venezuela and across the world, WFP’s operations follow the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and operational independence.” Past efforts by WFP to … [Read more...] about World Food Program to Give Daily Meals for 185,000 Venezuelan Children

The 100-foot-long object is orbiting the blue marble every 90 minutes, passing north of New York and Beijing and as far south as Chile and New Zealand . CHINESE ROCKET TO MAKE UNCONTROLLED REENTRY; UNCLEAR WHERE DEBRIS WILL HIT: REPORT While the main stage released the Tianhe, or "Heavenly Harmony," module – the makings of the country's first permanent space station – shortly after the eight-minute mark of the mission, Gizmodo reported that the core stage stayed in space and did not perform a controlled deorbit.

close Video Gutfeld examines NASA's historic Ingenuity helicopter flight on Mars 'Gutfeld!' host is joined by Tyrus Murdoch, Katherine Timpf, Steve Hilton and Joe DeVito to discuss the latest space feat NASA experts discussed a new era in space exploration Monday following the success of space flights by the Ingenuity Mars helicopter , which could set the stage for flight in other worlds. In a live discussion streamed on YouTube from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Southern California , Ingenuity pilot Johnny Lam said the helicopter can get into areas that other space robots or devices can't. "I think with the success of Ingenuity, we basically unlocked an aerial dimension to exploration," he said. "We can kind of reach some hard-to-reach areas, we can provide images, reconnaissance... the best path to traverse."

Never in the history of air combat has a pilot landed back at base, after putting their life on the line flying a grueling combat mission and remarked, “Thank goodness my jet met its life cycle sustainment cost estimates.” While this may sound absurd, it reflects the line of inquiry pursued during a recent House Armed Services Committee (HASC) hearing in which the F-35 was excoriated. Like most defense acquisition programs, aspects of the F-35 program need to improve, but the hearing manufactured a distortion of context by omitting details about the growing threat, the geriatric Air Force, or even a discussion of how Congress can chart improvement paths. Balance is needed before the hatchets cause irrecoverable wounds to the nation’s security. Essential to know, the F-35 meets a key requirement for the entire joint team: securing air superiority. No ship at sea, forces on land, space installation, or rear base will remain viable for long without protection from enemy air … [Read more...] about Get real: The F-35 is the combat power America needs
