How mysterious smell memories overpower us

Tuesday 14:31 GMT

People have bred pug dogs for entertainment, but the dog suffers - its respiratory organs are highly contracted, giving it its characteristic panting and leading to illness.

I can't for the life of me smell it until I'm met with one of those mysterious, out-of-the-blue, wafts … And I'm back in my Oma's flat, aged about nine, laughing my head off because I've just left a turd in all its stinky glory for my brother to find there on the deck.

Tuesday 12:41 GMT

Speaking on Saturday in Paradise, California, about the role of forest management in stemming wildfires, Trump said: “I was with the president of Finland and he said: ‘We have, much different, we are a forest nation.’

Most importantly, the Finns showed that they are proud as a nation to never neglect their raking duties, even under the snow:.

West clashes with Russia, China over OPCW chemical arms watchdog

Tuesday 17:15 GMT

The US and the UK have accused Moscow and Beijing of trying to stall the OPCW's new ability to attribute blame for chemical attacks.

The two-week OPCW meeting is the first since four Russians were accused by Dutch authorities in October of trying to hack into the watchdog's computer system, at a time when it was probing both the attack on Skripal and a major chemical attack in Syria. The new powers given to it in June means it will be able to apportion blame for future chemical attacks anywhere in the world provided that it is called upon to do so by the country in which the respective attack occurred.
