Another day of political drama in Britain, a fatal ISIS attack in Syria and the dangers of rapidly melting glaciers in Central Asia. Here’s the latest:
Parliament voted 325 to 306 against a motion of no-confidence in Prime Minister Theresa May, a day after it rejected her plan to withdraw from the E.U.
Many lawmakers from her own party, who just a day earlier opposed her plan, voted to support her government, underscoring the complex politics around Brexit.
What’s next? Mrs. May has to present a Plan B for Brexit. She promised to consult with Parliament and somehow craft a deal that could get approved. But E.U. officials have already said they’re unwilling to reopen negotiations, leaving Mrs. May with little new to offer. There is growing speculation she could ask to postpone Britain’s divorce from the bloc.
Go deeper: The no-confidence vote added pressure on the opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn, too. He now faces mounting calls for a second referendum on Britain’s split from the E.U.
Analysis: Mrs. May’s failure to corral her own party has upended Britain’s political system, where prime ministers typically exercise iron-fisted control over Parliament.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked President Trump to reschedule the annual speech — typically an occasion for the president to make a case for his policy agenda — citing security concerns from the government shutdown.
Context: The State of the Union address is one of the highest-stakes events for federal law enforcement each year, with the leadership of all three branches of government gathering in one place. The Secret Service, which leads security at the speech, has been affected by the shutdown.
The speech is currently scheduled for Jan. 29, and the invitation to deliver the address is traditionally at the speaker’s discretion.
Why it matters: Rescheduling the speech would have another benefits for the Democrats: taking away a nationally televised platform from the president.
Go deeper: The shutdown is now in its fourth week and has had wide-ranging effects around the country. Here’s a breakdown of all our latest reporting.
A suicide bombing claimed by the terrorist group killed 15 people in the northern city of Manbij, including two American troops and a contractor.
Before the attack, two American troops had been killed in Syria since the U.S. sent forces to the country in 2015.
Why it matters: The attack came just weeks after President Trump ordered the withdrawal of U.S. troops and declared the Islamic State defeated. The news prompted calls from Republicans and Democrats for the president to reconsider the withdrawal.
On a typical summer day, high above the city of Almaty in Kazakhstan, rivulets of melted ice stream down the edge of the Tuyuksu glacier.
Melting is a normal process in the constant evolution of glaciers. But in a warming climate, snow in winter can’t make up the difference, resulting in a net loss of ice.
Last year, scientists found that the Tuyuksu glacier was melting like mad — parts of it were three feet thinner than they were the year before. The glacier is getting shorter, too: In six decades, it has retreated more than half a mile.
Why it matters: Melting glaciers contribute to rising sea levels, can lead to disastrous floods and alter river ecosystems. On top of that, glaciers feed rivers, which in turn provide water for cities and farmers. Flows will eventually decline, affecting hundreds of millions of people in countries like India, Pakistan and China.
Kenya: The death toll in a terrorist attack by Shabab militants rose to 21 people, Kenya’s president said. All the assailants who stormed a luxury hotel and office complex in Nairobi had been “eliminated,” he added, but the country remained on the highest alert.
Trump and Putin: Since 2016, President Trump has had at least five face-to-face meetings with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. What they said to each other is a mystery — one now drawing fresh scrutiny from Mr. Trump’s critics.
China: A Canadian man sentenced to death by a Chinese court for smuggling drugs intends to appeal, one of his lawyers said. The move could buy time while Canada seeks to secure his clemency, but comes amid a widening diplomatic rift between the two countries.
Afghanistan: New leadership in Kabul has been working to restore order and crack down on crime, bringing a rare sense of hope to the capital city.
Indra Nooyi: The White House is considering the former chief executive of PepsiCo to lead the World Bank, according to several people familiar with the matter. However, the process is still in its early stages — and it’s unclear whether Ms. Nooyi would accept the nomination if chosen.
Australian Open: Rafael Nadal, Sloane Stephens and Roger Federer sailed through the second round. Here’s a look at the only top male tennis pro, Lucas Pouille, currently coached by a woman outside his immediate family. And follow along here for the latest from Melbourne.
‘Rail delay scarf’: A commuter in Germany decided to knit a scarf representing a year of transit headaches, and the four-foot multicolored result turned into a social media sensation, fetching about ,650 on eBay.
Margaret River: The remote Western Australian region, which boasts stunning landscapes, has leaned into its major food and wine festival to become a new tourist hot spot.
Chennai: There are many reasons to be excited about the South Indian city, our Frugal Traveler columnist found, from good food to beautiful houses of worship.

The Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering celebrates its 30th anniversary this weekend.
It’s followed by the 35th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Nevada later this month.
So what defines cowboy poetry?
“If it talks about agriculture or the Western way of life, horses, cattle — it counts,” said Bob Welch, a former editor of American Cowboy magazine.
He added: “If the author has a mustache, that certainly helps.”
(Women do participate, though the field remains male-dominated.)
The tradition dates back to cattle-drive days after the Civil War, when cowhands passed time inventing ballads about their work.
It entered the modern era through people like Baxter Black, a former large-animal veterinarian who wrote lyrics on long drives between ranches — and went on to sell over a million books.
“I would say the people who participate, 90 percent of them have some connection to livestock,” Mr. Black said.
That wouldn’t surprise Mr. Welch: “Since the beginning,” he said, “cowboys have been romantics.”
Gregory Cowles, the Book Review’s poetry editor, wrote today’s Back Story.
