Britain's top court backs government on immigration income test

By Alistair Smout LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's top court backed a government attempt to limit immigration by ruling on Wednesday that an income test for those who want to bring their non-European spouses to the UK is acceptable and does not infringe human rights. Prime Minister Theresa May introduced a rule in 2012 when she was interior minister that Britons who wanted to bring spouses from outside the European Economic Area to the UK had to be earning at least 18,600 pounds ($23,170) a year. The Supreme Court said the minimum income requirement had caused significant hardship to many, but ruled that in principle it was not inconsistent with the European Convention on Human Rights.

UPS has a functioning drone delivery concept, and it makes more sense than Amazon’s

Companies like Amazon are going all-in on drone deliveries and have already shown off warehouses that send packages out to customers exclusively via drone. For delivery companies like UPS, the idea of converting operations to rely exclusively on drones  is laughable, but that doesn't mean they won't find a way to utilize the new technology to streamline the delivery process.
This week, UPS tested out a delivery drone concept that doesn't so much do away with its iconic brown box trucks as augment them.

The test was conducted using a specially equipped UPS delivery truck which has a drone compartment built right into its roof. When the driver stops to deliver a package, the drone can be sent out to deliver one to a nearby location as well. UPS used the example of a rural delivery where sending a driver and truck down a long, winding road would be less efficient than sending the drone to deliver the package instead.

Once the drone has completed its delivery it automatically docks with the truck once again, and long arms grab and situate the device so that it can be recharged for the next stop. The drone is capable of carrying packages as heavy as ten pounds, which is double the five pound weight limit of .
Due to current FAA regulations which require drones to remain within visual of its operator — and avoid flying over buildings or people — even UPS's modest drone ambitions have some serious limitations. However, there's hope that those restrictions will be made a bit more workable in the future.

Last year, British voters in London elected a Muslim as mayor. A good example is happening in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation and its third-largest democracy. On Feb. 15, in a three-way race for the governorship of the capital, Jakarta, the Christian incumbent – who faces blasphemy charges for allegedly making a negative comment about the Quran – won the most votes (43 percent) against two rivals who ran on their Muslim faith.

By Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - China, in an early test of U.S. President Donald Trump, is nearly finished building almost two dozen structures on artificial islands in the South China Sea that appear designed to house long-range surface-to-air missiles, two U.S. officials told Reuters. The development is likely to raise questions about whether and how the United States will respond, given its vows to take a tough line on China in the South China Sea. China claims almost all the South China Sea, which carries a third of the world's maritime traffic.
