Ethereum difficulty bomb


I have read about ethereum difficulty bomb (ice age) here, but not sure is these numbers accurate:

Difficulty on 2016-11-06 is 40.17 T and average blocktime is 17.13 seconds.

or maybe I missed something ant this "difficulty bomb" was removed?

I see ethereum network hashrate dropping steadily from ~7.5 TH/s to ~3.7 TH/s now. Hmmm. Why?

Probably this is not "difficulty bomb" taking effect but maybe some miners moving from Ethereum to Zcash mining, or other reasons?

I would be very happy is somebody could put more light on these assumptions.

Thank you.
