From Washington Post: The United States will open its embassy in Jerusalem next year, Vice President Pence said Monday, accelerating plans to move the mission in line with the Trump administration’s controversial decision to recognize the city as Israel’s capital.

From SI Live: Global temperatures in 2017 were the second warmest on record since 1880, according to NASA.

Earth’s average temperatures in 2017 were 1.62 degrees warmer than the 1951 to 1990 mean, according to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.
