The ceremony has taken place just outside the Wentian pavilion - a compound where the astronauts have been living and training for the past several years.
Later, U.S. officials said the initial reports as described by Adm. John Richardson, the top Navy officer, were being reassessed, and they declined to provide full details of what happened. "The United States will respond to any further threat to our ships and commercial traffic, as appropriate, and will continue to maintain our freedom of navigation in the Red Sea, the Bab al-Mandeb, and elsewhere around the world", he said .
The result was a somewhat schizophrenic threat that was unlikely to scare Assad's government or Russian Federation as they move to crush the last rebel-held areas of Aleppo, Syria's largest city. On Sunday, Syrian opposition forces backed by Turkish airstrikes and armor took control of a key northern Syrian border town from Islamic State extremists.
In two days, the spacecraft will reach Tiangong 2 space laboratory, where the astronauts will reside for 30 days. "We are now ready for the Shenzhou 11 mission, and to rendezvou with Tiangong 2 ".

Students and faculty involved in the team were especially interested in Sunday's second presidential debate between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump and the team's experts agreed the debate was disheartening.
His rally speeches have become increasingly agitated and he has stepped up his rhetoric aimed at casting doubt on the fairness of this election, saying it is being rigged by a corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies.

China's first human mission to space launched in 2003, making it one of only three nations to put an astronaut in space independently (Astronauts from other countries have traveled in space, but all have been borne into orbit by American, Russian, and now Chinese spacecraft).
Under the Kigali Amendment, countries agreed to phase out the use of HFCs that are used in air conditioners and refrigerators beginning in 2019. The US and China are urging the countries gathered this week in Kigali, Rwanda, to extend the Montreal Protocol to include HFCs.

Understandably, India as a main player in worldwide affairs has also wanted a fair deal, a deal which also serves Indian development. According to the Berkeley National Laboaratory, air-conditioning is the cause of the largest growth in HFCs - and the world is likely to have another 700 million air-conditioners by 2030.
Trump's slide in IN combined with Texas now being within the margin of error suggests that the country is much closer to experiencing a landslide election than they are to a Trump/Pence victory. Tim Kaine - a lifelong Catholic - says Clinton saw his religion as "a real asset". He was referring to an exchange in which one aide suggested that being Catholic is a more "socially acceptable" conservative religion than being evangelical.
Despite picture ideal Fall weather, technical gremlins intervened to halt Sunday nights planned commercial cargo mission for NASA carrying 2.5 tons of science and supplies bound for the International Space Station (ISS). Those in DE should expect to see the rocket - or what will likely look like a glowing orange ball - rising in the sky about 60 to 90 seconds after the launch if the weather is clear.

The Montreal Protocol is the worldwide agreement created to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production and consumption of numerous substances that are responsible for ozone depletion, many of which are also potent greenhouse gases, and it is considered by many to be the most successful environmental treaty in history.
Globally, they account for only about 5% of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as of now but their use is growing rapidly, faster than any other GHG, especially in developing countries like India . "Thanks to the cooperation and the courage that we summoned at that critical time nearly 30 years ago, the hole in the ozone layer - which had been growing at an alarming rate, and which was the reason that we came together - that hole is now shrinking, and it's on its way to full fix", he ...
As the world got hotter, there would be more use of air conditioners and refrigerators and it was essential that cooling devices did not make the climate problem worse and turn it into a vicious cycle, he added. On the other hand, as reported by The New York Times , some are anxious that phasing out HFCs so quickly will put cheap air-conditioners out of reach from millions of Indians who may mark their "transition from poverty with the purchase of their first air-conditioner".
Dak Prescott has made history. Rodgers threw an interception of his own earlier in the third quarter, which the Cowboys were able to turn into a field goal that extended their lead to 20-6.

And away from the talks, Moscow's actions showed no sign that it might be softening its strong support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his campaign against US-backed rebels.

The spacecraft will dock with the Tiangong 2 space station within two days and the astronauts will stay there for 30 days to test the complex's ability to support their life. China says its space program is for peaceful purposes, but the U.S. Defense Department has highlighted its increasing capabilities, saying it was pursuing activities aimed to prevent adversaries from using space-based assets in a crisis.
