China is angry, but what can it do about North Korea?

Xi Jinping has few options to bring Kim Jong-un into line but he also has to contend with the unpredictable Donald Trump

On Friday afternoon, the eve of North Korea’s most powerful ever nuclear test, China’s football-loving president received a gift from the world’s greatest ever player.

“Good luck,” read the handwritten message from Pelé on a canary yellow Brazil jersey handed to Xi Jinping by his South American counterpart, Michel Temer.

North Korea vows ‘thousands-fold’ revenge on US over sanctions

North Korea has vowed to exact “thousands-fold” revenge against the US after the UN imposed new sanctions in response to the regime’s recent tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

In a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency, the regime said the sanctions were a “violent violation of our sovereignty” and part of a “heinous plot to isolate and stifle” the country.

On Saturday the UN security council unanimously backed new sanctions that could slash the regime’s $3bn in annual export revenue by a third. The measures target key export revenue earners such as coal, iron, lead and seafood – but not oil.

A Solid Gold Darth Vader for the Sith Who Has Everything

To celebrate 40 years of darkness, the galaxy’s favorite villain has taken on a much shinier disposition.

For less than the cost of a trip to Tatooine, one lucky Star Wars fan will soon be able to own a solid gold Darth Vader mask — perfect for bartering, though perhaps not so good for heavy breathing.

Surf Shacks is a Look into the Eclectic Homes of Iconic Surfers

Surfing is a freaking way of life. If you’ve ever met a hardcore surfer, odds are you wanted to swap lives with him, or at the very least become his BFF. That’s because these guys and gals live and breathe the lifestyle— from the way they style (or don’t style) their hair, to the beach “shacks” they call home.

And there’s an important lesson we can take from watching them live: All we really need to survive is a passion and a cozy shack to call home.

That’s the reason we love Surf Shacks ($60), a new book put together by the surf-centric blog Indoek and publisher Gestalten that chronicles some of the most visually pleasing homes of legendary surfers.

World’s Largest Indoor Farm Switches On in Japan

Although modern agriculture is no doubt leaps and bounds ahead of anything seen a few centuries ago, there’s still one tiny problem with it. Weather remains out of our control. With all of our high-tech farming toys, all it takes is a bad drought, a freak storm, or an outbreak of particularly resilient vermin to destroy an entire harvest.

It’s happened before in our long history, and modern farming equipment – while it’s done a great deal to mitigate the problem – hasn’t removed it entirely. Now, one Japanese plant physiologist claims he’s found a solution to the weather problem – and possibly world hunger, as well. He’s opened the world’s largest indoor farm.

Hitman: The Complete First Season is Like Playing Through a James Bond Film

A decade since the acclaimed Hitman: Blood Money and a few years since 2012’s much maligned Hitman: Absolution, fans of this cult sandbox franchise have been hungry for a return to form.

So, last year, developer IO rebooted everything. Revisiting early notions of what this iconic series should be, but incorporating refined gameplay systems and an entirely new release structure – six individual episodes over the course of a year – it aimed to reassert shiny-pated killing machine Agent 47 at the forefront of the sandbox stealth genre.
