Nana Sanjaia of VOA's Georgian service spoke with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili, following Vice President Mike Pence's visit to the country. Below is a transcript, edited for clarity and length. Q: Vice President Mike Pence is the highest official of the current U.S. administration who visited Georgia. What is the takeout from his visit? A: The vice president's visit was extremely important, and so is the timing. The administration is six months in office but we've seen continued stable support for Georgia from the Senate, House and White House. We see how very carefully, very targeted the U.S. new administration treats our issues. If you listened to V.P. Pence's speech, the...

What America Should Learn from North Korea's Latest Missile Test

02 August 2017 23:53:22 WN.com - World News

North Korea’s second test of an intercontinental missile on July 28 demonstrated at least two important new realities. First, even experts who doubted the country’s range capabilities after the first test on July 4 now concede that it can likely strike the eastern coast of the United States with a nuclear weapon, if it were to fire this missile along the right trajectory. Second, North Korea appeared to simulate an operational missile launch, which means it wants to show off the kinds of procedures it might use in wartime and convey to Washington that preemption is no longer a realistic option. Although Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that the U.S. wants a dialogue with...

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The polygamous sect leader caught recently after he was on the run for a year was in a pair of accidents in the late 1990s that must be investigated to determine whether the head injuries he suffered caused brain damage, his lawyer said Wednesday. A decision on whether Lyle Jeffs will argue that he is unfit to stand trial on food stamp fraud, money laundering and failing to appear in court won't be made until after experts assess the old medical reports and evaluate his mental health, the lawyer, Kathryn Nester, said in an email to The Associated Press.

MIAMI (AP) — The last of 12 inmates who escaped an Alabama lockup by tricking a guard with peanut butter is back in jail after persuading his sister to drive him to Florida, a sheriff said.

Governor again seeks to pit Chicago against rest of Illinois

02 August 2017 23:53:22 WN.com - World News

CHICAGO (AP) — By extracting Chicago money from a measure all Illinois public schools needed to get state funding this fall, Gov. Bruce Rauner reignited an age-old but divisive political strategy on a new front. Pitting Chicago against the rest of Illinois has been a popular tool for Rauner, who drummed up enough support outside of the Democratic stronghold in 2014 to become the state's first GOP governor in more than a decade. But this time it's a particularly risky move ahead of Rauner's 2018 re-election bid, with schools across the state potentially paying the price. Rauner used his veto powers this week to rewrite a funding plan and remove hundreds of millions of dollars for Chicago...

Science Says: Gene editing widely used in range of research

02 August 2017 23:53:22 WN.com - World News

WASHINGTON (AP) — Gene editing is getting fresh attention thanks to a successful lab experiment with human embryos. But for all the angst over possibly altering reproduction years from now, this technology already is used by scientists every day in fields ranging from agriculture to drug development. New gene editing tools let scientists alter the DNA of living cells — from plants, animals, even humans — more precisely than ever before. Think of it as a biological cut-and-paste program. A look at the science. ————— WHAT IS GENE EDITING While scientists have long been able to find defective genes, fixing them has been so cumbersome that it's slowed development of genetic therapies....
