'Out Of Gitmo': Released Guantanamo Detainee Struggles In His New Home In the final months of the Obama administration, the U.S. struggled to find homes for dozens of detainees in the Guantanamo Bay detention center. But the negotiations with host nations proved complicated and five men approved for release never made it out. To understand why, I set out to interview a released Guantanamo detainee, as part of a project in partnership with the PBS series Frontline . I traveled to Serbia and met Mansoor al Dayfi, who had been sent to Guantanamo Bay soon after the war on terror detention facility was opened in early 2002. He now lives in a sparsely furnished apartment in Belgrade. It's small, but with a separate bedroom, kitchen, and a living room with a nice view of the city. Al Dayfi is from Yemen, but couldn't go home because of the instability there. So last July, U.S. officials sent him to Belgrade. The Serbian government set him up with a new life: an apartment, a monthly stipend and the opportunity for

Are Cyborgs In Our Future? 'Homo Deus' Author Thinks So

The human species is about to change dramatically. That's the argument Yuval Noah Harari makes in his new book, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow . Harari is a history professor at Hebrew University in Israel. He tells NPR's Ari Shapiro that he expects we will soon engineer our bodies and minds in the same way we now design products. Interview Highlights On how we will begin to engineer bodies The three main ways of doing that, first of all, is to take our organic body and start tinkering with it with things like genetic engineering, speeding up natural selection and actually replacing it with intelligent design — not the intelligent design of some God above the clouds, but our intelligent design. The other way is to start combining organic with inorganic parts and creating cyborgs. For four billion years all of evolution — not just of humans but of all beings — was confined to the organic realm, but very soon we might be able to break out of the organic realm using things like

New Report Finds ISIS Territorial Defeats Are Also Hitting The Group's Wallet

The so-called Islamic State's financial fortunes are bound to the amount of territory it controls. And the group's dramatic loss of ground in its strongholds in Syria and Iraq is putting pressure on its finances, according to a new report from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation. Though exact figures are murky, the researchers assessed information, including leaked documents, about ISIS finances. They found that the group took in $870 million last year, which is approximately 50 percent less income than in 2014. That's because its most significant income sources — taxes and fees, oil, and looting — are linked to territory, as ICSR Director Peter Neumann tells All Things Considered . "In fact what made them so rich in 2014, the fact that they were tied to territory, territory that they could exploit — that also explains why their income has declined so dramatically," he says. Neumann adds that losing control of key cities "means fewer businesses to tax, fewer people
