Previous elections in Africa's biggest democracy and top oil producer have been marred by vote rigging, voter intimidation and post-election violence.

U.S. Senator Rubio, other officials visit site of Venezuelan aid

U.S. Senator Rubio, other officials visit site of Venezuelan aidWhile Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is refusing to allow in the food, medicine and other supplies, opposition leader and self-declared president Juan Guaido has vowed to move hundreds of tonnes of the aid into the country on Feb 23. Guaido, who argues that Maduro's 2018 re-election was a sham, invoked constitutional provisions to declare himself the country's leader last month. Most Western countries and many of Venezuela's neighbors have recognized Guaido as the legitimate head of state, but Maduro retains the backing of Russia and China and control of Venezuelan state institutions including the military.

This spider's eyes still glow, even though it died 110 million years ago

This spider's eyes still glow, even though it died 110 million years agoFossil hunters in Korea discovered long-dead spiders preserved in rock. And to the delight of scientists, the arachnids' eyes are still reflective -- some 110 million years after the creatures died. It's rare for insects and arachnids -- which are far more brittle than shelled sea creatures -- to become fossilized in rocks. But for reasons still unknown, a couple of these spiders did fossilize, and the unique shape of their eye structures continue to reflect light -- even in their petrified form. The reflective eye structure is called a tapetum, and it's often used by creatures who hunt in the dark. "So, night-hunting predators tend to use this different kind of eye," Paul Selden, director of the Paleontological Institute at Kansas University's Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum, said in a statement. "This was the first time a tapetum had been in found a fossil. This tapetum was canoe-shaped -- it looks a bit like a Canadian canoe."A 100-year-old spider with reflective eyes.Image: PAUL A. SELLEN/The University of KansasToday's wolf spiders employ the same eye structures to hunt, Selden added.A mystery still remains, however: How did the spiders become fossilized? Their petrified bodies were found in a layer of rock filled with fish and other sea critters -- but spiders don't dwell in water.SEE ALSO: Opportunity rover's last picture is as grim as it is dark"It has to be a very special situation where they were washed into a body of water," Selden said. "Normally, they'd float. But here, they sunk, and that kept them away from decaying bacteria -- it may have been a low-oxygen condition."Another view of the fossilized spider.Image: PAUL A. SELLEN/THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSASSelden and his Korean colleagues -- who actually discovered the ancient spiders -- now get to name the curious fossils. They were only found because Korean land is often excavated, so scientists and the fossil-curious dig in to see what ancient novelties are hidden in Earth's crust. "So, they carve away the hillsides to make a flat area, and there are temporary excavations while they're cutting away and building a factory or whatever -- that's where they found these fossils," said Selden.  WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?

Russia's Gazprombank freezes accounts of Venezuela's PDVSA: source

Russia's Gazprombank freezes accounts of Venezuela's PDVSA: sourceRussian lender Gazprombank has decided to freeze the accounts of Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA and halted transactions with the firm to reduce the risk of the bank falling under U.S. sanctions, a Gazprombank source told Reuters on Sunday. While many foreign firms have been cutting their exposure to PDVSA since the sanctions were imposed, the fact that a lender closely aligned with the Russian state is following suit is significant because the Kremlin has been among Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s staunchest supporters. "PDVSA’s accounts are currently frozen.

Indonesian presidential hopefuls vow energy self-sufficiency through palm

Indonesian presidential hopefuls vow energy self-sufficiency through palmIndonesia's two presidential candidates pledged on Sunday to achieve energy self-sufficiency by boosting the use of bioenergy, particularly fueled by palm oil, to cut costly oil imports by Southeast Asia's biggest economy. Indonesia, the world's biggest palm oil producer, has been pushing for all diesel fuel used in the country to contain biodiesel to boost palm consumption, slash fuel imports, and narrow a yawning current account gap. In a televised election debate, President Joko Widodo said if he won a second term the government planned to implement a B100 program, referring to fuel made entirely from palm oil, after last year making it mandatory to use biodiesel containing 20 percent bio-content (B20).

Separately, de Blasio said he had not ruled out a 2020 presidential run, but would take his message about corporations nationwide regardless of his decision. Amazon’s announcement has sparked a furious debate over whether local officials and activists should be blamed for losing New York an estimated 25,000 to 40,000 high-paying tech jobs, or whether the firm had reacted too rashly to public concerns.

Trump policies unite allies against him at European security forum

Trump policies unite allies against him at European security forumPromising that "America will be back" once Donald Trump leaves office, Biden won a standing ovation at the Munich Security Conference from delegates who find the president's brusque foreign policy stance hard to like. Biden's successor, Mike Pence, was met with silence at a reception in the palatial Bavarian parliament on Friday evening after he delivered his signature line: "I bring you greetings from the 45th president of the United States, President Donald Trump." His four-day trip to Europe succeeded only in deepening divisions with traditional allies over questions such as Iran and Venezuela and offered little hope in how to deal with threats ranging from nuclear arms to climate change, diplomats and officials said. Misgivings about Washington's role in the world are being felt by ordinary people as well as foreign policy specialists.

NASA posts image of ghostly blue objects, deep in the cosmos

NASA posts image of ghostly blue objects, deep in the cosmosWhen a star is born, a chaotic light show ensues.  NASA's long-lived Hubble Space Telescope captured vivid bright clumps moving through the cosmos at some 1,000 light years from Earth. The space agency called these objects clear "smoking gun" evidence of a newly formed star — as new stars blast colossal amounts of energy-rich matter into space, known as plasma.  Seen as the vivid blue, ephemeral clumps in the top center of the new image below, these are telltale signs of an energy-rich gas, or plasma, colliding with a huge collection of dust and gas in deep space. As NASA says, these blue masses are transient creations in the cosmos, as "they disappear into nothingness within a few tens of thousands of years." Bright lights inside a nebula. Image: ESA/Hubble/NASA/K. Stapelfeldt These blue clumps are traveling at 150,000 mph toward the upper left direction (from our view, anyhow). In total, there are five of these ghostly clumps, hurtling through space.  SEE ALSO: Opportunity rover's last picture is as grim as it is dark NASA doesn't identify the new star itself, called SVS 13, perhaps because it's obscured by thick clouds of cosmic matter. This collection of dust and gas is part of a distant nebula, which are often the remnants of exploded stars swirling through the infinity of space. WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?

During four hours of unrest, they attacked two large art installations outside the office of Prime Minister Edi Rama, an artist and former basketball player elected in 2013.
