Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane) »

Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane)The Blackbird’s design reflected the fact that it was pushing the limits. The SR-71’s J58 engines could only start through use of two vehicle-mounted V8 starter engines, and the triethylborane used in the fuel would belch green flames during ignition. The J58s would switch to a partial ramjet mode at high speeds, such that the SR-71 actually became more fuel efficient when it went faster.

Family laughs off epic Photoshop fail that left them looking like cartoon characters as sceptics cry fake »

Family laughs off epic Photoshop fail that left them looking like cartoon characters as sceptics cry fakeThere have been any number of PhotoShop controversies over the years, from the almost routine retouching of images of models to photojournalists being caught doctoring their war footage. But this must be the most bizarre - if the pictures are to be believed. "Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $2-250 for a family photo shoot," writes Pam and Dave Zaring in a Facebook post.  "Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us...." The finished product must have come as something of a shock. Far from beautiful portraits of her family, the photos came out looking like something from a horror show. The photographer said the shadows caused problems on such a sunny day Credit: Facebook Imagine the plain features of a Sims family... only covered over in paper. The Zarings said the photographer had a ready explanation. "She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos," they wrote. At least they could see the funny side to their family being portrayed as cartoonish figures. "I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS!!!!! You can't make this stuff up," they added with a cheery invitation to share the pictures. The photographer said she had never been taught how to retouch images Credit: Facebook The images have now been shared almost 400,000 times, setting off a viral discussion about whether they are fakes or if they might actually be real. Plenty of people expressed scepticism in the comments section with some suggesting it was some kind of marketing ploy. “This is not real,” wrote one. The couple insisted it was true and that they had a long battle to see the finished product. “This is not a joke. This is legitimately the final product I received in the mail yesterday," they wrote. "I passed my furious mark months ago when she wouldn’t send us anything. I was fully prepared to be scammed, money gone, and no final product!" The family's local newspaper, The St Louis Post-Dispatch, said it contacted the photographer involved who declined to discuss the images. The buzz even inspired one photography expert to offer an online tutorial in retouching to get the same effect.

UAE accuses Qatar of 'intercepting' 2 passenger planesThe United Arab Emirates accused neighbouring Qatar of "intercepting" two Emirati passenger planes en route to Bahrain on Monday in the latest incident between the Gulf rivals. Qatar denied the allegations as "totally baseless" and hit back that they came "one day after a C-130 UAE military aircraft breached Qatari airspace". Tensions have escalated in the Gulf since Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut all ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting Islamist extremists and being too close to Saudi Arabia's arch-rival, Iran.

Russia condemns Trump's threats to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal »
15 Jan 2018, 10:49

Russia condemns Trump's threats to withdraw from Iran nuclear dealRussia's foreign minister has condemned Donald Trump's threats to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, arguing that the United States' reckless actions are destabilising the Middle East, Ukraine and the Korean peninsula. Speaking at an annual press briefing, Sergei Lavrov said Russia, Europe and China had warned the United States of the “harmfulness of such a step, of its unpredictable consequences”. “We will keep trying to make the United States acknowledge reality. And the reality is that Iran is fulfilling all its obligations” under the nuclear deal, he said.  On Friday, Mr Trump waived US sanctions on Iran for another 60 days, leaving in place the nuclear deal signed by Barack Obama. But he said it would be the last time he would waive them and said Europe and America must must “fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw”. At the same time, he raised pressure on Iran by announcing separate sanctions against 14 Iranian individuals and companies for human rights abuses. Mr Lavrov called these new sanctions an “attack” on Iran, a longstanding Russian ally, and said Mr Trump's actions were “deplorable”. Donald Trump speaks at the White House last week Credit: Evan Vucci/AP Photo The foreign minister also argued that the collapse of the Iran deal could discourage North Korea from engaging in talks about its own nuclear weapons programme. Healso  castigated military exercises held by the United States, South Korea and Japan last month. “The US is almost openly talking about the inevitability of military action (on the Korean peninsula) even though everyone recognizes the disastrous consequences of such a path,” he said. Russia and China weren't invited to North Korea talks in Vancouver this week, he sniffed, calling the US-Canadian initiative “harmful”.  Meanwhile, North and South Korean officials met on Monday to discuss plans for the recently agreed participation of the North in the Pyeongchang Olympics next month. Mr Lavrov devoted much of the two-and-a-half-hour press conference to the evils of US “exceptionalism” and its failure to “listen to the opinions of other centres of world politics”.  Mr Lavrov meets Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Moscow last week Credit: Russian Foreign Ministry Press Office/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images Although the foreign minister was photographed last spring laughing with Mr Trump and Sergei Kislyak, the ambassador at the centre of the collusion investigation, relations have only grown more strained since then. Russia's ban from the Pyeongchang games and the new US sanctions expected in 2018 showed the “fear of honest competition,” Mr Lavrov said. Washington was, along with the Kiev government, prolonging the conflict in eastern Ukraine, as well as undermining the peace process in Syria, he argued. Mr Lavrov blamed rebels for an uptick in violence outside Damascus that has killed least 85 civilians since the start of the year and claimed all Russian-Syrian military operations there were retaliatory. Batting away the lone question from a US news outlet about whether he regretted Mr Trump's election win, the long-serving diplomat dwelled on queries from friendlier countries. One particularly desperate journalist even waved a flashing traffic wand light in the air, but was not called upon.

Erdogan: we will 'strangle' U.S.-backed force in Syria "before it's even born"By Ellen Francis and Ezgi Erkoyun BEIRUT/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan threatened on Monday to "strangle" a planned 30,000-strong U.S.-backed force in Syria "before it's even born," as Washington's backing for Kurdish fighters drove a wedge into relations with one of its main Middle East allies. The United States announced its support on Sunday for plans for a "border force" to defend territory held by U.S.-backed, Kurdish-led fighters in northern Syria. The Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad responded on Monday by vowing to crush the new force and drive U.S. troops from the country.

Turkey unveils route of 45 km 'Istanbul Canal'The Turkish government on Monday unveiled the route of its planned new canal for Istanbul, a hugely ambitious 45 kilometre (28 mile) project designed to be its answer to the famed artificial shipping lanes in Panama or Egypt's Suez. The project, first announced by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan while he was prime minister in 2011, is by far the most complex of a string of new ventures for the city. The government argues it will create attractive new living areas and take pressure off the Bosphorus Strait that splits the European and Asian sides of the city and is one of the world's busiest shipping lanes.


Chinese 'rainbow dinosaur' had iridescent feathers like hummingbirds »
15 Jan 2018, 4:22

Chinese 'rainbow dinosaur' had iridescent feathers like hummingbirdsScientists on Monday announced the discovery of a crow-sized, bird-like dinosaur with colorful feathers from northeastern China that lived 161 million years ago during the Jurassic Period. Microscopic structures in the exquisitely preserved, nearly complete fossil unearthed in Hebei Province indicated that it boasted iridescent feathers, particularly on its head, neck and chest, with colors that shimmered and shifted in the light, like those of hummingbirds. The discovery "suggests a more colorful Jurassic World than we previously imagined," said evolutionary biologist Chad Eliason of the Field Museum in Chicago, one of the researchers in the study published in the journal Nature Communications.

Other countries with strong gains in terms of percentages included the United States, Russia and Brazil, although all of these countries are much smaller markets for VW than China.


12,000 flee as Philippines warns of volcano eruption »
14 Jan 2018, 23:39

12,000 flee as Philippines warns of volcano eruptionThe crater of a rumbling Philippine volcano was glowing bright red Monday, with vulcanologists warning it could erupt within days, sending thousands fleeing from their homes. Volcanic earthquakes and rockfalls have shaken the summit of Mayon over the last 24 hours, after a number of steam-driven eruptions, scientists said. More than 12,000 people have been ordered to leave a seven-kilometre (four-mile) evacuation zone, and there are warnings of destructive mudflows and toxic clouds. "It is dangerous for families to stay in that radius and inhale ash," Claudio Yucot, head of the region's office of civil defence, told AFP. "Because of continuous rains in past weeks, debris deposited in the slopes of Mayon could lead to lahar flows. If rain does not stop it could be hazardous." Clouds of ash engulf the volcano in Legazpi Credit: Reuters The volcano, a near-perfect cone, sits around 330 kilometres southwest of Manila. Steam-driven eruptions and rockfalls began over the weekend, and the crater began glowing on Sunday evening, in what the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said was a sign of the growth of a new lava dome. The Mayon volcano's crater glows, as it is pictured from Daraga, Albay, the Philippines Credit: Reuters Experts fear a major eruption could trigger pyroclastic flows - superheated gas and volcanic debris that race down the slopes at high speeds, incinerating or vaporizing everything in their path. More extensive explosions of ash could drift toward nearby towns and cities, including Legazpi city, the provincial capital, about 9 miles (15 kilometers) away. An archive photo of the Mayon volcano when not at risk of eruption  Credit: AFP Lava last flowed out of Mayon in 2014 when 63,000 people fled. "We think the lava now is more fluid than in 2014. This means the flow can reach further down (the slopes) at a faster rate," Phivolcs head Renato Solidum told AFP. "We see similarity with eruptions where the first phase of the activity started with lava flow and culminated in an explosive or hazardous part. That's what we are trying to monitor and help people avoid." At a glance | Deadliest volcanic eruptions The 2,460-metre (8,070-foot) Mayon, has a long history of deadly eruptions. Despite having erupted about 50 times in the last 500 years, the volcano is popular with climbers and tourists. Four foreign tourists and their local tour guide were killed when Mayon last erupted, in May 2013. The Mayon volcano during an eruption back in 2006 Credit:  CHERYL RAVELO/Reuters In 1814 more than 1,200 people were killed when lava flows buried the town of Cagsawa. An explosion in August 2006 did not directly kill anyone, but four months later a typhoon unleashed an avalanche of volcanic mud from Mayon's slopes that claimed 1,000 lives.

Body of father found after California mudslides, raising death toll to 20The body of a 30-year-old father who had been missing since this week's mudslides in California has been found, increasing the death toll to 20.  The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office says Pinit Sutthithepa's body was found Saturday afternoon. Sutthithepa's 6-year-old son, Peerawat, and his father-in-law, 79-year-old Richard Loring Taylor, were also killed. His 2-year-old daughter, Lydia, is still missing. The list of those still missing in the mudslides has now shrunk to four. Pinit Sutthithepa was identified as the 20th victim of this week's deadly Montecito mudslides Credit: Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office/AP The search for survivors of the tragedy in parts of California's Santa Barbara County continued over the weekend, even as hopes dwindled to find anyone alive, officials said. "We're still in rescue mode and we still hope to find someone alive, although the chances of that are becoming slim," said Justin Cooper, a spokesperson for the multi-agency response team. Deadly California mudslides, in pictures Another 900 emergency personnel arrived Saturday to join the relief effort conducted by more than 2,100 personnel from local, state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Navy and the American Red Cross. The ramped-up rescue effort is in response to urgent requests for additional manpower made earlier in the week. Heavy rains on Tuesday soaked the area near Montecito, north of Los Angeles, where vegetation had been stripped away by the largest wildfire in California's history last month. Sodden hillsides gave way, unleashing a torrent of mud, water, uprooted trees and boulders onto the valley below and killing people aged 3 to 89. The destruction covered 30 square miles (78 square km), according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, and forced the partial closure of one of California's most celebrated coastal roads, the heavily used Highway 101. Santa Barbara County Fire Capt Adam Estabrook and Engineer Rick Pinal search through a debris pile Credit: Reuters Officials ordered residents in most of the southeastern corner of Montecito, which is east of Santa Barbara, to leave their homes for what was likely to be one or two weeks. Many fled to nearby Carpinteria, where local resident Tessa Nash said they were communicating via a Facebook page called Carpinteria Swap, which is usually focused on buying and selling secondhand goods. Mudslides | Where am I at risk? In the last few days, Nash said, it has been carrying information about community-led blood drives and transportation tips. "We're really joined together," she said. "We're affected here in Carpinteria in the sense that we're taking these people in and a lot of people are out of work because they can't travel. It's a trickle down effect."

South Africa's ANC leader: Zuma to be dealt with over timeThe new leader of South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) party, Cyril Ramaphosa, has said the question of whether President Jacob Zuma should step down would be addressed "as time goes on". There has been widespread speculation that Ramaphosa and his allies are lobbying ANC members to oust Zuma as head of state in the coming weeks, but he made no mention of Zuma's future in a closely watched speech on Saturday. Ramaphosa won the race to succeed Zuma as ANC leader last month, narrowly defeating former cabinet minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Zuma's ex-wife, in a bitter leadership contest that had threatened to split the 106-year-old ANC.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed in settlement talks with government: sourcesBy Rania El Gamal and Stephen Kalin DUBAI/JEDDAH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, detained for over two months in an anti-corruption crackdown, is negotiating a possible settlement with authorities but so far has not agreed on terms, a senior Saudi official said.

A second source familiar with Prince Alwaleed's case told Reuters on Saturday that the price had offered to make a "donation" to the Saudi government, which would avoid any admission of wrongdoing, and to do so from assets of his own choosing.

Warning over alarming 'Tide Pod Challenge' detergent eating YouTube trend  An alarming new trend involving teenagers eating detergent capsules and posting the videos on YouTube could  “put them in danger”, health officials have warned.   The concerning 'Tide Pod Challenge' phenomenon has spread across social media since the turn of the year. Teenagers have filmed themselves biting into Tide laundry detergent capsules, with some of the videos racking up more than 100,000 hits before being removed by YouTube. The first mention of the 'Tide Pod Challenge' on YouTube dates back to June 2014, while parody website The Onion followed this up with a satirical op-ed about the pods in 2015. A video by CollegeHumor titled ‘Don't Eat the Laundry Pods’ posted in March 2017 has been viewed more than three million times and towards the end of last year it spread into a popular meme.

Health officials have warned the capsules contain “highly concentrated toxic contents” which can cause vomiting, diarrhea and in worst case scenarios, breathing difficulties. “Teens trying to be funny are now putting themselves in danger by ingesting this poisonous substance,” Ann Marie Buerkle, from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, told Good Morning America. Some YouTube creators say their videos about the Tide Pod Challenge have been removed for violating the platform’s rules. “Why did my video on kids doing the ‘Tide Pod Challenge’ get taken down and striked when there are millions of compilations of kids eating them?” questioned user Niksfinity. A spokesperson for Procter & Gamble, Tide’s parent company, said: “Our laundry pacs are a highly concentrated detergent meant to clean clothes, and they’re used safely in millions of households every day. “They should be only used to clean clothes and kept up, closed and away from children. “They should not be played with, whatever the circumstance is, even if it is meant as a joke.” Eight deaths as a result of eating detergent pods were reported from 2012 to early 2017 in the US, involving six adults suffering from dementia and two children. In 2013, a seven-month-old boy from Florida died after biting into a laundry pod. Members of the public seeking specific information on poisons should contact the NHS 111 service or call 999 if a person is showing signs of being seriously ill.
