Flickr to delete millions of photos as it reduces allowance for free users

Photo-sharing site to limit free storage to 1,000 images as part of revamp under new owners

Flickr is to delete millions of photos from the internet, as its new owners attempt to sustain the photo-sharing site  after its purchase from Yahoo earlier this year.

Free users of the site will be limited to storing 1,000 photos and videos, with any excess being deleted from February 2019. The limit is a steep reduction from the previous allowance of 1TB per user, about 200,000-500,000 photos each.

Noam Chomsky: Members of Migrant Caravan Are Fleeing from Misery & Horrors Created by the U.S.

As President Trump escalated his attacks and threats against the Central American migrant caravans making their way to the U.S.-Mexico border, the Trump administration unveiled new sanctions against Venezuela and Cuba on Thursday. National security adviser John Bolton declared Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua to be part of a “troika of tyranny” and a “triangle of terror.” We speak with world-renowned professor, linguist and dissident Noam Chomsky about U.S. foreign policy in Central America. He joins us in Tucson, Arizona, where he now teaches at the University of Arizona. Chomsky is also institute professor emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has taught for 50 years.

In Australia, the hairy-nosed wombat is an endangered species.

In comparison to its relative, the common Wombat. They have a fluffy coat of fur, their ears poke of much more, and they are usually much larger.

The wombat here was found half asleep next to a man-made concrete wall. In this area there is a lot of parklands and areas for the wombats to run around. For some reason they have decided to remain further to the human side of the park.

In the early morning sun, this wombat is ready to go back to sleep but is having great difficulty deciding whether to stay in the warm sunlight or go home to his burrow.
