Kerry told a regional security conference being hosted by Laos that North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons — when the world is trying to rid itself of them — is "very provocative and deeply concerning." He urged the country to follow the lead of Iran, which hammered out a deal to end its nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions.

The very first round-the-world trip by a solar-powered aircraft has been completed. Solar Impulse 2 touched down in Abu Dhabi after a journey around planet Earth that begun in March 2015, fuelled entirely by energy from the sun Pilot Bertrand Piccard safely landed the jet for its final touch-down after travelling from Cairo. He has shared the controls with fellow pilot André Borschberg throughout the pioneering and record-breaking circumnavigation. The final landing brings to an end an epic 17-stage journey, covering 42,000 km and clocking up 558 hours of flight time. Solar Impulse 2 has the wingspan of a Boeing 747, but weighs little more than the average car. It has a cockpit the size of a telephone box, and its wings are covered with 17,000 solar cells, allowing it to fly day and night without fuel. The two Swiss pilots hope their milestone achievement will pave the way for the creation of new energy efficient technologies, and inspire new clean-energy innovations.

Marijuana bars that sell pot rather than alcohol should be licensed to operate in Toronto, a city councillor's forum on marijuana distribution heard Monday. Jim Karygiannis, who represents Ward 39 Scarborough-Agincourt, called the meeting to give frustrated medical marijuana distributors and their supporters a chance to air their thoughts, after controversial police raids in May led to hundreds of charges against owners and employees at 43 Toronto marijuana dispensaries. A handful of marijuana lounges operate legally in Toronto, but they're only allowed to cater to people who are users of medical marijuana and who get their product through the mail from government-authorized distributors.

Groundwater problems, weakened diamond prices and a thinning crowd of diamond producers mean De Beers is "very unlikely" to find a buyer for the Snap Lake mine before the company floods it later this year, says one diamond industry analyst. If a junior mining company does agree to purchase Snap Lake, it will likely do so under a "call out option" — acquiring and sitting on a mine for the express purpose of reselling it once prices improve. It's better if the property stays with De Beers, says Ugo Lapointe, the Canada program co-ordinator for Mining Watch.
