  1. Six Years After Teddy Bear Row, Belarus Revives Ties With Sweden May 22, 2018, at 9:01 a.m. BY ANDREI MAKHOVSKY MINSK (Reuters) - Belarus appointed an ambassador to Stockholm on Tuesday, ending a six-year-old diplomatic spat over a pro-democracy stunt that saw hundreds of teddy bears airdropped by a Swedish public relations firm over the former Soviet republic. In 2012, Minsk recalled its envoy to Sweden and expelled Sweden's ambassador after the toy bears were dropped over Belarussian territory, each carrying a message urging the authoritarian country to show greater respect for human rights. ... https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2018-05-22/six-years-after-teddy-bear-row-belarus-revives-ties-with-sweden

  12. Massive Eradication Effort Ends Rodents' Reign Of Terror On Forbidding Isle May 10, 20187:32 PM ET There are no other birds quite like them in the world. The South Georgia pipit and pintail are so distinctive in the grand pantheon of ornithology, in fact, they draw their names from the one place they've made their home: South Georgia Island, sitting lonely in the forbidding South Atlantic not far from Antarctica. Yet even in such a remote location, surrounded by penguins, fur seals and seemingly endless ocean, the birds have long been besieged by tiny alien invaders: rodents. Since the first European ships arrived in the late 18th century bearing rodents as stowaways, the voracious predators have devastated the South Georgia birds — which, with no trees to nest in, must make their vulnerable homes on the ground or in burrows. Now, after more than two centuries, those invaders have been rebuffed. The South Georgia Heritage Trust announced Wednesday that the island is once more rodent-free, following an international effort that dates back a decade. Using poisoned bait strewn from aircraft and three sniffer dogs, the team confirmed that nearly 400 square miles have been cleared. The SGHT says that's more than eight times larger than the Australian island that used to hold the record for such an eradication. ... https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/05/10/610057564/massive-eradication-effort-ends-rodents-reign-of-terror-on-forbidding-isle?utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=science
