The ousted Ukrainian president says Moscow's annexation of the Black Sea peninsula is "a major tragedy" and he hopes to persuade Russian President Vladimir Putin to return it.
Arctic sea ice reached its maximum extent this year on March 21.
According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, this year’s extent averaged 5.7 million square miles – that’s more than a quarter-of-a-million miles less than the average extent measured between 1981 and 2010, but it is also slightly above the record low measured in 2006.
This year’s was the fifth lowest maximum extent measured, but it’s also the fifth latest in terms of timing since researchers began keeping records 35 years ago.
Scientists attribute a brief surge in sea ice extent in mid-March to winds over both the Barents and Bering Seas that pushed ice pack south temporarily.
Scientists say air temperatures over the Arctic in late march were unusually high.
The head of the federal National Guard Bureau says the investigation now underway into allegations of sexual assault and harassment within the Alaska National Guard should not be hidden away.
In response to questions from Sen. Lisa Murkowski at a congressional hearing this morning, General Frank Grass said investigators from the Bureau’s Office of Complex Investigations are on the case.
“What we’ve done at the request of the state is sent up an investigation team, about three weeks ago,” General Grass said. “We’re looking at a broad brush of complaints and we’ll do the analysis.”
“I’m free to come brief you in more detail on where we’re at on that and how much time it might take.”
Murkowski accepted the general’s offer but says the outcome of the investigation should be transparent to remove the cloud hanging over the Alaska National Guard. Gen. Grass agreed, although he said the report would go to the governor.
Some of the allegations date back as far as 2010.

Adam Lioz, of the public policy organization Demos, says that Wednesday's Supreme Court ruling will further empower a small, elite group of political donors. He offers a critical perspective on the ruling.
A divided Supreme Court eliminated the overall limits on a donor's contributions to federal candidates and campaigns, while leaving in place the limit on what a donor may give to one candidate.
Texans overwhelmingly choose cars and trucks for their commutes, but in cities like Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, policy leaders have incentives to support cycling. They say it's good for business.
