Turkish troops are advancing on the mountainous Qandil region of northern Iraq where the leadership of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) is based, a senior minister said Monday, as military operations are stepped up. Several Turkish troops have been killed in the region in recent months during clashes with the PKK, although the authorities remain vague over where the fighting is taking place. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu told the state-run Anadolu news agency the target was the Qandil mountains, the PKK's key military base.

How to properly download your iCloud Photo Library

Macworld - Mon, 06/04/2018 - 08:00

There’s no macOS issue I hear about more than iCloud Photo Library. It's a service that answers many users’ needs, but there are some not-quite-outlying demands that fall through the cracks. This often revolves around being able to get a full set of your images and movies in iCloud Photo Library if you don’t have enough storage on your Mac startup volume.

Macworld reader Shai wrote in with such a concern recently. They have a 300GB media library synced with iCloud Photo Library and a modest disk drive on their MacBook Pro, so Photos for macOS is set to optimize media. The full-resolution versions of images and video are thus only held in iCloud.

California city fights poverty with guaranteed income

Top Stories - Mon, 06/04/2018 - 06:11

By Jane Ross STOCKTON, Calif. (Reuters) - Michael Tubbs, the 27-year-old mayor of Stockton, California, has a radical plan to combat poverty in his cash-strapped city: a "no strings" guaranteed basic income of $500 a month for its residents. Starting in early 2019, Tubbs plans to provide the monthly stipend to a select group of residents as part of a privately funded 18-month experiment to assess how people use the money. "And then, maybe, in two or three years, we can have a much more informed discussion about the social safety net, the income floor people deserve and the best way to do it because we'll have more data and research," Tubbs told Reuters.

How to transfer all your data from an old iPhone to a new iPhone

Macworld - Mon, 06/04/2018 - 03:01

How do you effectively transfer the contents of an older iPhone to a new one? It's not too difficult to do, whether you're setting up a brand new iPhone fresh out of the box, or your new iPhone is already set up and running, just not with your data.

Here are the steps using iOS 11.3.1 or later.

1. Back up the old iOS device

First, make sure you have a fresh backup of the older device. There are two ways to create a backup.

  • Through iCloud
    1. On your iPhone, tap on the Settings app and then tap your account name (it should appear at the very top) > iCloud > iCloud Backup.
    2. Tap the switch to turn on iCloud Backup.
    3. A pop-up will appear, asking if you want to Start iCloud Backup. Tap OK. Note that if you back up to iTunes on your Mac, this function will stop.
  • Through iTunes on a Mac
    1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac.
    2. Launch iTunes, and click the iPhone icon in the upper left of the app. 
    3. You should see a summary page regarding your iPhone. In the Backups section, look for the Manually Back Up and Restore section and click the Back Up Now button.
    4. You can confirm the backup was made by looking in iTunes > Preferences > Devices and looking for the device name and the date and time of the last backup.
2. Back up and/or sync the new iOS device

Now turn to the new device. Make sure that if the new device has been used to take pictures, record audio, or make any other unique media files or documents, that those have been copied or synced so they will be available to retrieve after erasing the device. (If you’re using iCloud Photo Library, for instance, all photos and videos should be synced to iCloud, and will simply sync back after the device is restored from the older iOS hardware.)

Guatemala volcano eruption: Several dead as Fuego spews ash across capital and lava river runs into village

Top Stories - Sun, 06/03/2018 - 21:17

At least seven people were killed and another 20 injured when Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupted violently on Sunday. Volcan de Fuego, one of Central America's most active volcanos, spewed a stream of red hot lava and belched a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions. "It's a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village. There are injured, burned and dead people," Sergio Cabanas, the general secretary of Guatemala's Conred disaster agency, said on radio. "We are evacuating and rescuing people and have reports of 20 wounded, six dead and disappeared," said Cabanas. Mr Cabanas said seven were confirmed dead and an undetermined number of people were missing, leading officials to fear the toll could rise. #VolcandeFuego#Guatemala#Lava#Volcán#VolcanoLava today. pic.twitter.com/JYTOpVLc1Y— Aldo Cardoza (@FamCardoza) June 3, 2018 Guatemala's disaster agency said 3,100 people had evacuated nearby communities, and the eruption was affecting an area with a population of about 1.7 million people. Shelters were opened for those forced to flee. An ash covered woman said lava poured through corn fields and she feared more had died. "Not everyone escaped, I think they were buried," Consuelo Hernandez told local news outlet Diario de Centroamerica in a video. Among the fatalities were four people, including a disaster agency official, killed when lava set a house on fire in El Rodeo village, Cabanas said. Two children were burned to death as they watched the volcano's second eruption this year from a bridge, he added.

Steaming lava flowed down the streets of a village as emergency crews entered homes in search of trapped residents, a video on a different local media outlet showed. The eruption forced the Guatemala City's La Aurora international airport to shut down its only runway due to the presence of volcanic ash and to guarantee passenger and aircraft safety, Guatemala's civil aviation authority said in a Tweet. #VolcánDeFuego �� hace erupción en #Guatemala ���� pic.twitter.com/rLgiyJxyaN— Noti Bomba (@notibomba) June 3, 2018 The volcano is located 25 miles  southwest of the capital Guatemala City and is close to the colonial city of Antigua, popular with tourists and known for its coffee plantations. Workers and guests were evacuated from the La Reunion golf club near Antigua. Video footage showed a black cloud of ash rising from just beyond the golf club. The lava river was running on the other side of the volcano. Volcán de Fuego y sus erupciones... pic.twitter.com/6T9TxQ6hOo— Guía espiritual. (@renato_lechuga) June 3, 2018 The huge plumes of smoke that could be seen from various parts of the country and the ash that fell in four of Guatemala's departments caused alarm among residents. David de Leon, spokesman for the National Disaster Prevention Authority said a change in wind was to blame for the volcanic ash falling on parts of the capital. The conical Volcan de Fuego,  Spanish for "volcano of fire," reaches an altitude of 12,346 feet above sea level at its peak.
