Two Sherpa guides working on Everest were confirmed dead Tuesday, bringing the death toll on the world's highest peak this spring climbing season to five. The two guides -- both ethnic Sherpas from the valleys that surround Everest -- were working on opposite sides of the mountain, which straddles the border between Nepal and Tibet. Experienced guide Damai Sarki Sherpa, 37, fell more than 60 metres into a crevasse on Monday as he was helping a foreign climber to a rescue helicopter on the Nepal side of the mountain.

How to find out where Apple stores your iCloud data (spoiler: you can’t exactly)

Macworld - Tue, 05/22/2018 - 08:00

“The cloud” is a concept, not a place, although collectively, the cloud is made up of places. Cloud computing refers to an aggregation of servers that you don’t have to know much about to gain the benefit. This can be for storage, like iCloud Drive or Amazon Cloud Drive or Google Drive, or for computation and other more specialized purposes. When you use a cloud-based service, your actions and data may be split among many machines and drives—maybe even across continents.

Macworld reader Craig has a question about that, having read that Apple stores some of its iCloud data on other companies’ servers. “What data/services are hosted/stored on Apple-owned data centers and which data/services are hosted/stored on Google data centers? A web search as well as Apple forums provide no details on this.”

China rebuffs U.S. concerns about ties with Venezuela

Top Stories - Tue, 05/22/2018 - 03:50

China rebuffed U.S. concerns about its ties with Venezuela on Tuesday after Washington imposed new sanctions on the crisis-stricken oil-producing country following the re-election of its socialist President Nicolas Maduro. Maduro, the 55-year-old successor to late leftist leader Hugo Chavez, hailed his win in Sunday's election as a victory against "imperialism". In response to the vote, U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order restricting Venezuela's ability to liquidate state assets and debt in the United States, the latest in a series of sanctions that seeks to choke off financing for the already cash-strapped government.

US moves to lift Obama-era curbs on killing hibernating bear cubs in Alaska

Top Stories - Mon, 05/21/2018 - 23:39

The Trump administration is moving to reverse Obama-era rules barring hunters on some public lands in Alaska from baiting brown bears with bacon and doughnuts and using spotlights to shoot mother black bears and cubs hibernating in their dens. The National Park Service issued a notice Monday of its intent to amend regulations for sport hunting and trapping in national preserves to bring the federal rules in line with Alaska state law. Under the proposed changes, hunters would also be allowed to hunt black bears with dogs, kill wolves and pups in their dens, and use motor boats to shoot swimming caribou. These and other hunting methods - condemned as cruel by wildlife protection advocates - were outlawed on federal lands in 2015. Members of the public have 60 days to provide comment on the proposed new rules. "The conservation of wildlife and habitat for future generations is a goal we share with Alaska," said Bert Frost, the park service's regional director.

Alaska has 10 national preserves covering nearly 37,000 square miles (95,830 square kilometres). The Alaska Department of Fish and Game was "pleased to see the National Park Service working to better align federal regulations with State of Alaska hunting and trapping regulations," Maria Gladziszewski, the state agency's deputy director of the Division of Wildlife Conservation, said in an email to The Associated Press. If @Interior has its way, it will be perfectly legal for Alaska sport hunters to lure bears with greased donut bait piles to kill them. Or to crawl into bear dens to kill hibernating females and their cubs. #UnBearablehttps://t.co/Kd2vnm9K8P— National Parks Conservation Association (@NPCA) May 22, 2018 She said the proposal is "progress in that direction, and we appreciate those efforts. Alaskans benefit when state and federal regulations are consistent." Expanding hunting rights on federal lands has been a priority for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, a former Montana congressman who displays a stuffed bear in his Washington office along with mounted heads from a bison and an elk.

The Associated Press reported in March that Mr Zinke had appointed a board loaded with trophy hunters to advise him on conserving threatened and endangered wildlife, including members of the Safari Club. President Donald Trump's sons are also avid trophy hunters who have made past excursions to Africa and Alaska.

"Cruel and harmful hunting methods like killing bear cubs and their mothers near dens have no place on our national preserves," she said. When bears attack | What to do if you are attacked by a bear The Humane Society of the United States said it would oppose the new rules. "These federal lands are havens for wildlife and the National Park Service is mandated to manage these ecosystems in a manner that promotes conservation," said Anna Frostic, a lawyer for the animal rights group. "This proposed rule, which would allow inhumane killing of our native carnivores in a misguided attempt to increase trophy hunting opportunities, is unlawful and must not be finalised."
