Craig McLean, the NOAA's acting chief scientist, was dismissed from his role last month The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration's top scientist has been fired after he asked new Trump-appointed staff to acknowledge the agency's scientific integrity policy, according to a new report.  Craig McLean, the agency's acting chief scientist, was dismissed from his role last month shortly after sending an email to the new political appointees, including former White House adviser Erik Noble, the New York Times reported.  McLean had reportedly asked them to respect the NOAA's scientific integrity policy which prohibits fabrication, falsification and manipulation of research data driven to fit a political agenda.

Radical plans to transform a ‘tired, tourist trap’ in the heart of Sydney into a slick waterfront boulevard complete with a 42-storey residential tower

Dubbed a 'tired, tourist trap', the harbour area is being designed by architecture firm FJMT, who have now released their plans for the $1.8billion redevelopment. The site opened during Australia's Bicentennial celebrations in 1988, before it was bought for $252million by Mirvac in 2013. The renewed plans will demolish the current shopping centre, monorail structure and pedestrian bridge at Darling Drive to put in retail spaces. Restaurants, open areas, a civic square and a wider waterfront boulevard with a footbridge to Pyrmont will also create 8,000 square metres of public space. Developers wish to erect a 42-storey tall residential tower (plans pictured) at the Harbourside Shopping Centre in Darling Harbour Mirvac have plans to 'immeasurably improve' the current shopping centre at Darling Harbour  The develo

James Comey's wife Patricia pleaded with him not to reveal damning reopening of FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server until after 2016 election, new book reveals

James Comey’s wife attempted to convince him not to announce that the FBI was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails until after the 2016 election, according to a new book. Comey’s decision to reveal the bureau’s probe into the former Secretary of State’s private email server on October 28, 2016 – just 11 days before Election Day – has since been cemented as the turning point of her doomed campaign. It didn’t matter on November 6 that Comey absolved Clinton of any misconduct. Following the shock outcome of the election on November 8, Comey was accused by Democrats of handing the White House to Trump on a silver platter. Patrice Comey, his wife of more than three decades, says she was one of the people who tried to stop that from happening. Speaking to New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt for his new book, Donald Trump v. The United States, Patrice revealed how she pleaded with her husband in their kitchen to rethink his course of action. ‘You can't do this thi
