Graeme McDowell’s WD: The 2010 U.S. Open champ will not play in this year's Open Championship after withdrawing from this week's qualifier. The reason? Air France didn't get him his clubs in time.

We've seen pros WD in situations like this rather than play with a replacement set, but it's still hard to understand why G-Mac wouldn't at least give it a go. In any matter, I'm extra glad we decided to drive to Virginia.

ON TAP

The PGA Tour heads to West Virginia for the Greenbrier Classic, AKA that event that every commercial break you’ll see that ad in which Phil Mickelson talks about falconry. Great stuff.

Random tournament fact: The official name of this tournament is now "A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier." OK then.

"People think this is easier than it is. They think they can hit those shots.

Vietnam independence proclaimed

A+E Networks

Hours after Japan’s surrender in World War II , Vietnamese communist Ho Chi Minh declares the independence of Vietnam from France. The proclamation paraphrased the U.S. Declaration of Independence in declaring, “All men are born equal: the Creator has given us inviolable rights, life, liberty, and happiness!” and was cheered by an enormous crowd gathered in Hanoi’s Ba Dinh Square. It would be 30 years, however, before Ho’s dream of a united, communist Vietnam became reality.

Born in 1890, Ho Chi Minh left Vietnam as a cook on a French steamer in 1911. After several years as a seaman, he lived in London and then moved to France, where he became a founding member of the French Communist Party in 1920. He later traveled to the Soviet Union , where he studied revolutionary tactics and took an active role in the Communist International. In 1924, he went to China, where he set about organizing exiled Vietnamese communists. Expelled by China in 1927, he traveled extensively before returning to Vietnam in 1941.

There, he organized a Vietnamese guerrilla organization–the Viet Minh –to fight for Vietnamese independence. Japan occupied French Indochina in 1940 and collaborated with French officials loyal to France’s Vichy regime. Ho, meanwhile, made contact with the Allies and aided operations against the Japanese in South China. In early 1945, Japan ousted the French administration in Vietnam and executed numerous French officials.

When Japan formally surrendered to the Allies on September 2, 1945, Ho Chi Minh felt emboldened enough to proclaim the independent Democratic Republic of Vietnam. French forces seized southern Vietnam and opened talks with the Vietnamese communists. These talks collapsed in 1946, and French warships bombarded the northern Vietnamese city of Haiphong, killing thousands.

In response, the Viet Minh launched an attack against the French in Hanoi on December 19, 1945–the beginning of the First Indochina War. During the eight-year war, Mao Zedong’s Chinese communists supported the Viet Minh, while the United States aided the French and anti-communist Vietnamese forces. In 1954, the French suffered a major defeat at Dien Bien Phu, in northwest Vietnam, prompting peace negotiations and the division of Vietnam along the 17th parallel at a conference in Geneva. Vietnam was divided into northern and southern regions, with Ho in command of North Vietnam and Emperor Bao Dai in control of South Vietnam.

We wonder how the beetle's brain processes all this extra visual information. Eduardo Zattara/IU Bloomington

We don’t know about you, but we’re always quite excited by any news story that starts with the phrase “scientists have accidentally created” – it’s either going to be something incredible or it’ll be the future plot of a Hollywood movie.

The latest accident features the use of some very quirky genetic manipulation. Courtesy of Indiana University (IU), we now have beetles with functional third eyes. As pointed out by a rather marvelous Brumani Baobab Ring UK P US 7 1/2 EU 56 1/2 GXjp2kACD
by the university, this may make people think of the Three-Eyed Raven from Game of Thrones. This beetle isn’t likely to be a clairvoyant, but it's certain to provide a glimpse into the future of evolutionary biology.

To be fair, it was a little while back that IU scientists, fiddling with this beetle’s genes, accidentally led to one developing a third eye. This time around, they’ve Angara Round Sapphire Flower Stud Earrings with Milgrain Detailing jsuCn5aedD
been conducting their genetic alchemy on beetles, and have now purposefully provoked it to pop out its third peephole.

As emphasized by the team, there's no single “gene” that influences the development of the eyes. Plenty work in unison to produce complex effects, and sometimes altering one can have unintended consequences elsewhere.

This means that finding out how to intentionally trigger the appearance of a third eye in the center of the beetle’s forehead isn’t as simple as finding an on-off switch. Saying all that, however, the team discovered that the silencing of just one single gene led to the fusion of two sets of extra eyes.

The Russian business daily reported at length on February 15 that Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan was visiting Moscow and would meet with President Vladimir Putin and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

The Washington Post ran only a brief AP story mentioning the visit; the New York Times ran the same AP dispatch with only a cursory description of plans to by weapons:
The also said Russia "intends to ship Iran its S-300 air defense system."

The Russian media regularly portrays the S-300s as virtually already delivered, but as we have pointed out, there are issues of manufacture and payment, even though Iran has reportedly withdrawn its suit against Russia for non-delivery of the S-300s while it was adhering to the UN-imposed embargo. cited sources that told them Iran had already made an advance toward the nearly $1 billion payment for the S-300s, and would receive the first division "within a few months."

That would mean that statements from Vice Premier Dmitry Rogozin that they were "already" delivered were premature. The sources said the contract "plans to be fulfilled by the end of 2016/early 2017."

The US-negotiated end to sanctions on Iran made the "shopping trip" possible, but there are some catches, as the noted:
This was cause for complaint by Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and terrorism analyst who told that Secretary of State John Kerry had "frontloaded Iran's payday for all the wrong reasons" when the nuclear agreement was reached:

The conservative Fox News was more blunt about Iran's "shopping trip" in a story headlined "Defiant Iran Ignores UN Ban, Hits up Putin for High-tech Tanks, Fighter Jets"; Fox also mentioned Iran's recent test of missiles capable of bearing nuclear warheads, for which 11 entities and individuals were sanctioned.

Kommersant went further than AP and even Free Beacon to point out two restraining factors on Tehran's shopping, one of which Fox had noted:

That indicates that at least this Russian business daily -- not as independent as it once was -- wants to emphasize that Resolution No. 2231 is not undone by the nuclear deal.
As the reported in January restrictions will still remain on weapons.
As IBT recalls, US sanctions were imposed by President Jimmy Carter in 1979 when not only 60 Americans were taken hostage but 241 Americans were massacred in the combing of a Marine compound in Beirut by Hezbollah -- the same terrorist group with now a civilian government that is fighting alongside Russia and Iran ostensibly against ISIS in Syria -- but actually propping up the Assad regime.
As the BBC reported , despite the nuclear deal, the conventional arms embargo on Iran will remain in place for five years -- with the embargo on missiles for 8 years. This is the fine print often overlooked in enthusiastic coverage of the nuclear deal reach with Iran by the Obama Administration.
In addition to the weapons systems covered by , mentioned the Iranians were looking to buy combat training Yak-130s, frigate ships and electric diesel submarines.
Another interesting tid-bit from not mentioned by Western media was that in fact Iran has kept its interest in purchasing T-90 tanks -- which are already visible in the war in Syria. Quoting the defense minister, reported:

According to the prognosis of one of 's sources in Russia's Federal Military Technology Cooperation (FTS) agency , "negotiations on that issue will be difficult." Even so, Kommersant's source "did not rule out"that Russia would agree to localize the assembly of the T-90 in Iran.

As Iran Project reported, Iran had in fact not scrapped plans to buy the T-90.
Another source in the FTS system said that Tehran may request Moscow's help in repairing the Iranian fleet of MiG-29s and Su-24MKs and also its submarines.
The biggest difficulty in expanding military-technical cooperation is Tehran's lack of cash, however; Iran wants to get the Russian armaments on credit, but due to the economic crisis, the Kremlin cannot allow that.

Iran has been attempting to negotiate an $11 billion loan with Russia for "infrastructure support" -- this is supposedly separate from any arms deal.

Kommersant also spells out the problems with the UN resolution: tanks, armored vehicles, high-caliber artillery systems (100 mm and larger), fighter jets and helicopters, war ships, missiles and missile systems -- these are all supposed to be sanctioned for 5 to 8 years.
