Trump is reportedly set to relax U.S. ban on land mines
President Trump will announce as early as Friday that he will undo restrictions on using or acquiring land mines enacted by former President Barack Obama in 2014, two U.S. officials tell Reuters. Obama had moved to stop all U.S. production and acquisition of anti-personnel mines, including to replace degraded stockpiles. The U.S. is not among the more than 160 signatories to the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, but it adheres to many of its provisions and prohibits the use of anti-personnel mines outside of the Korean peninsula, Reuters says. "The resumption of the use of anti-personnel land mines and continued stockpiling and production of these indiscriminate weapons is militarily unnecessary and dangerous," said Daryl Kimball at the Arms Control Association. The U.S. hasn't used land mines since a single anti-personnel mine in Afghanistan in 2002, Kimball's group says, and the last time the U.S. military used mines in any significant way was in the 1991 Gulf War.

Beyond Brexit: Fishing, farming and science set for biggest shake-up in 70 years
It was hard to find a more pro-remain sector of the UK economy than Britain's scientific research sector. Science is, and always has been an international enterprise dependent on the free movement of people and just as importantly research funds. And most of the money, and people, come from the EU. The government's announcement this week for a fast-track visa system for "top talent" in research has allayed some of the scientists' fears.

Beyond Brexit: Why young European talents won't be snapped up by British clubs
If you cast your eyes around the increasingly cosmopolitan Premier League it will probably dawn on you quite quickly, given the number of European players who pull on an English club shirt every week, that Friday is not just a big deal for the country but for football, too. Because Friday will also prove to be the last day of the transfer window as we know it. Yes, of course, everything remains the same during the near year-long transition but for football that could mean a period of stockpiling young European football talent.
Beyond Brexit: TV, film, music and theatre face a year of uncertainty
In this transition period, taking us until the end of December 2020, freedom of movement ie the movement of talent, personnel, artists etc can continue. Organisations like Creative Europe, founded by the union to encourage investment in the creative industries across the continent - its funding helped pay for the Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech - are still open for business for those seeking funding for their projects. There are plenty of big beasts in residence in the UK - Netflix, Disney, Warner Bros, Comcast (the new owner of Sky) - all strong enough to take any adverse movements in the value of the pound, the smaller independents may well be viewing their own future further down the line with a little more trepidation.

Oh Boy, Elon Musk Made An EDM Song Called “Don’t Doubt Ur Vibe”
We, as a culture, have made the terrible decision to deify ruthless capitalist weirdo businessmen, and we get what we deserve. In this case, what we deserve is an EDM track called "Don't Doubt Ur Vibe," made by a car executive who seems to be going through a deep and profound midlife crisis. This morning, Tesla CEO and elaborate Grimes accessory Elon Musk was dropped his new banger "Don't Doubt Ur Vibe" on the SoundCloud page of his own Emo G Records. This is the second Emo G recording; the first was a 2019 Auto-Tuned rap named "RIP Harambe." "Don't Doubt Ur Vibe" definitely sounds like a song that a 48-year-old billionaire might make if he was dating Grimes. On Twitter, Musk has shared some truly ghastly photos of himself in the studio and claimed that he "wrote the lyrics & performed the vocals" himself. Those lyrics are: "Don't doubt your vibe/ Because it's true/ Don't doubt your vibe/ Because it's you." He wrote that himself! The cover art is a Tesla Cybertruk orbiting Mars. Take a

There are $5 and $10 tiers, and subscribers get access to things like short films, video diaries, livestreams, monthly Q&A sessions, and "random surprise content! It might be a song, a recipe, a manifesto, maybe I could help you with your homework, you guys could be my manager for a day, tell me what to do with my career, therapy sessions, dating advice, we'll see what happens." Talking to Rolling Stone, M.I.A. says, "I’ve tried all the other platforms and it’s like: this one is too mean and hateful, this one is too fake and self-obsessed, and this one just sells all your data to Cambridge Analytica… I want to get back to using the internet in a positive way; I don’t want to be an influencer.

Drake & Future – “Desires”
A few weeks ago, Drake and Future resumed their longtime partnership — highlighted by the 2015 collaborative album What A Time To Be Alive — with a new collaborative single called "Life Is Good." The song debuted at #2, becoming Future's biggest chart hit ever and giving Drake the record for most Hot 100 entries. Despite being credited to Future with Drake as a featured artist, "Life Is Good" fueled rumors of a new collaborative release from the superstar duo. Now another Drake and Future track is out, so those rumors are not likely to go away. Whereas "Life Is Good" was essentially a Drake song and a Future song stitched together with an awkward faux-"Sicko Mode" beat switch, the new "Desires" is basically a Drake song that Future lurks through for a few seconds. Produced by d.hill, it's one of those soft and airy songs in which Drake sweetly sings bitter words at a woman he's contentiously involved with. One memorable extremely Drake sequence: "How the fuck you keep so many secrets
Watch Michael Stipe Tell Stephen Colbert About His Favorite Radiohead Song And The Time He Told Trump To Shut Up At A Patti Smith Concert
Michael Stipe recently released his first two solo singles, "Your Capricious Soul" and "Drive To The Ocean." The R.E.M. singer also has a new photo book called Our Interference Times: A Visual Record combining digital and analog imagery. He sat for an interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night to discuss all this and more. The subject of Donald Trump came up because he's been using R.E.M. songs at his rallies against the band's wishes. "It's a licensing problem and there's nothing we can do except respectfully request that they not use it," Stipe explained. This led to an anecdote about how Stipe once told Trump to shut up during a Patti Smith concert at Joe's Pub in NYC. There was also talk about how the climate change protest Extinction Rebellion inspired his return to music, the photo book's aim to exemplify the seemingly irreconcilable culture clash of our times, and Stipe's doctor's advice that he stop watching the news. Because Thom Yorke recently told Colbert
