The Tasmanian tiger was doomed long before humans began hunting the enigmatic marsupial, scientists said Tuesday, with DNA sequencing showing it was in poor genetic health for thousands of years before its extinction. Scientists genetically mapped the animal -- also known as a thylacine -- using the genome of a pup preserved more than century ago in a jar. The research revealed the creature began to undergo a decline in genetic diversity more than 70,000 years ago, leaving it less resilient to environmental change even before Aborigines are believed to have first inhabited the continent 65,000 years ago.

China's rapid military buildup is focused on acquiring the capabilities needed to annex, or conquer, Taiwan. A Chinese diplomat in Washington recently threatened that China would invade Taiwan if the U.S. Navy sent a ship to visit the democratic island, something that Congress has called upon the Pentagon to do in 2018. According to leaked Chinese military documents (analyzed here), Taiwan stands to lose more from the rise of China as a twenty-first-century superpower than any other country in the world.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met Putin at his presidential complex in Ankara for a closed-door meeting. This is the eighth face-to-face meeting between Putin and Erdogan this year, a sign of the intensity of a relationship that had hit rock bottom in November 2015 when Turkey shot down a Russian war plane over Syria.
The first year of the Trump administration was great for the financial sector, which, with a few weeks left in the year, had risen 19 percent in 2017 alone. CUBI is a small-cap regional bank that looks like one of the most undervalued names in the entire market. CUBI suffered in 2017 after writing off a bad investment that damaged earnings per share, but with that impairment almost totally behind it, EPS is expected to rise 27 percent in 2018 -- and it wouldn't be shocking for CUBI to rise that amount, either.

Would the capture of Moscow have altered the outcome of World War II? Moscow was more than the administrative capital of the Soviet Union: it was also a vital rail hub and production center. There was also the symbolic value: totalitarian dictators, like Hitler and Stalin, crafted images of themselves as all-knowing leaders of their nations.

The US Senate version of the tax overhaul plan would pay for itself over 10 years, boosting growth and generating $1.8 trillion in additional revenues, the Treasury Department said Monday. The Republican plan is expected to generate GDP growth of about 2.9 percent over the next decade, 0.7 percentage points higher than the current forecast, which will bring in more revenue to the government's coffers and offset the deficit increase caused by lower taxes, according to a Treasury analysis. Republicans in the House and Senate are working to come up with a final unified version of the reform that President Donald Trump can sign before the end of the year.
