Bullets rip into the side of a cash van as the driver is forced to employ evasive action to avoid armed robbers. The attempted heist saw raiders repeatedly ram and open fire on the Toyota truck as the shocked driver and an armed guard flee through traffic. Dash cam footage records the moment loud cracks begin, with the outer pane of the driver's window shattering inches from his face moments later. The engine can be heard roaring as he screeches away, steering hard several times in an effort to lose the tail. The guard grabs an automatic rifle and grips it as he awaits further onslaught. At one point the driver performs a u-turn and then can heard shouting "They're going to shoot. They're going to f****** shoot," before several more shots ring out. "Phone Robbie, phone Josh. Ask them where they are," he then tells his colleague. After two-and-a-half minutes the driver parked the truck, grabbed the rifle and got out by which point the raiders had fled His … [Read more...] about Cash van driver races away from armed robbers as gunshots hit vehicle several times

When Joe Biden boasted to world leaders last month that the US would halve its greenhouse emissions by 2030 from 2005 levels — urging his counterparts from countries like China and India to commit to stronger action — the US president left environmentalists unconvinced. The cuts are more ambitious than previous targets to burn less fossil fuel. But they will not stop the US from overshooting its fair share of the emissions that can be released to meet the 2015 Paris Agreement pledge to keep warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, and ideally 1.5C, according to independent research project Climate Action Tracker. This is a question of justice: The US has polluted the atmosphere more than any other economy on the planet and also has more money to deal with it. Factoring in those inequalities, Biden's pledge is "very close to or just within" the range of cuts needed to reach 2C, said Andreas Geiges, a researcher at Climate Analytics, which jointly runs the project. But it falls … [Read more...] about Climate justice: Do pledges ignore unequal emissions?
Though vaccination progress in many EU countries is slow because of supply bottlenecks at manufacturers, Israel currently has more available supply than national demand. To date, Israel has administered the most COVID-19 vaccine doses per capita in the world. More than 3.67 million Israelis have received the first dose of the BioNTech-Pfizer mRNA vaccine since the vaccination campaign began on December 20. This represents about 40% of the country's population. More than 28% have already received the second dose. And among those over 60, more than 80% have already been vaccinated. Meanwhile, anyone over the age of 16 can be vaccinated immediately. Israel currently has so much supply from BioNTech-Pfizer that Moderna's vaccine is not even being administered yet, even though it has been licensed in Israel since January 5.

DOGECOIN is "better than a lottery ticket", billionaire investor Mark Cuban has claimed as cryptocurrency surges again. While putting your money into cryptocurrency risks losing it all overnight, Cuban told Ellen DeGeneres "Bitcoin is kind of like a digital version of gold. Ethereum is a digital version of a currency,” “So the question everyone wants to know, is dogecoin a good investment? And here’s the reason I got Jake [his son] into it. It’s not necessarily the best investment you can make, but you can buy it on Robinhood, and signing up and trading on Robinhood is free. So that’s one thing,” Cuban said. “The second thing is it’s about 26 cents per dogecoin. So if you go and spend five, 10, 15 dollars, that’s a better investment than buying a lottery ticket. And you know what? It could go up,” he added. Read our cyptocurrency live blog below for the very latest updates... Patrick Knox 7 minutes ago HOW RISKY IS DOGECOIN?
