Lil Wayne stands by his 'no such thing as racism' comment.
(12 Oct 2016) LIL WAYNE EXPLAINS HIS 'NO SUCH THING AS RACISM' COMMENT Lil Wayne understands why some people criticized him for saying racism is over, but claims people don't see it from his perspective. The rapper got some backlash last month when he told Fox Sports 1's "Undisputed" that there was "no such thing as racism" because his concert audiences had a lot of white fans. He also said millennials knew that racism wasn't cool. When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest. "Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don't know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though." Carter said. The Grammy-winning rapper said he was lying on the floor when police broke down the door, stepping over his body looking for guns and drugs. But one man stopped and chastised the others for leaving him. "He was white as snow. Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me," Carter said. Carter says the man known as "Uncle Bob" personally took him to the hospital and stayed with him. "(He) stood there and waited until the doctor said 'He's gonna make it,'" Carter said. Still, he acknowledged that despite what he told Skip Bayless on "Undisputed," there is such thing as racism. However, he says when he looks out from the stage, he sees all colors. "When I open my eyes on stage and when I, at a Lil Wayne show when I come from under the stage. Man, it's not - it's the world out there. It's not a certain part or a certain kind or a certain culture or whatever of people, it's people - those people out there in that crowd. They make, quote unquote, and they make, quote unquote, Lil Wayne." He added: "That's who I happen to be, and I'm sorry I'm sorry if people can't understand. But I understand why they don't understand, it's because they don't come from the bottom of the stage and look at 20 to 30-thousand people. They don't get that opportunity. And I'm blessed to have that opportunity, so with that said I can only be honest with such a thing. I have never witnessed racism." Carter made the comments while promoting the recently published "Gone Till November: A Journal of Rikers Island," a revealing account of his eight-month jail sentence in 2010 after a gun charge.

He needs tons of carbs to have that energy to get through the game because – I can't remember – I think they run... I can't remember how many miles it is, but it's a bunch of miles that it equivilates (sic) to by the end of the game and so we always do a pasta dish and then we have some sort of lean protein whether it's ground turkey or ground chicken, chicken breast, some sort of fish, but it's always super lean."

I mean, it was salty Cream of Wheat. Gushers, lined up on a plate as garnish. It was like, it was cute but I couldn't eat it. But I cooked for him first. I remember I made him a baked chicken dish with some of his dad's famous seasoning that he likes to use and he loved it. So maybe that's the reason why we're married I don't know (laughs)!

We have a pretty busy lifestyle and sometimes I forget or I just don't have time to go to the grocery store and so I'm left saying, 'What's in my refrigerator? What's in my pantry?' One day my daughter really wanted pancakes. We didn't have the pre-mixed stuff. All we had was flour, a couple eggs and so off the top of my head – I don't know why I didn't use my phone to Google a pancake recipe – but off the top of my head I just threw stuff together, put it in the pan and then realized I left out the thickening agent, what was going to fluff that pancake up. And it was the consistency of a crepe. But they were so delicious and that's how my pancrepes came about. The whole family loves them. They're great." AP Images Oakland, Calif., 19 June 2015 7.

William, Kate, George and Charlotte spend Christmas with the Middletons
(25 Dec 2016) WILLIAM AND KATE SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH THE MIDDLETON FAMILY The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Christmas Day church service at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire on Sunday (25 DEC.). The royal couple is celebrating Christmas with the Middleton family in nearby Bucklebury, instead of with the Queen at Sandringham. They arrived at the church with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate's mother and father - Carole and Michael Middleton - sister Pippa, and brother James also attended the service. A heavy cold kept Queen Elizabeth II from attending the traditional Christmas morning church service near her Sandringham estate in rural Norfolk, England. It is extremely rare for Elizabeth to miss the service, which is a cornerstone of the royal family's Christmas celebrations and brings the monarch into contact with local residents who gather outside for a glimpse of her.

Singer-songwriter Lissie goes it alone after being dropped by record label
(25 Nov 2016) SINGER-SONGWRITER LISSIE GOES IT ALONE AFTER BEING DROPPED BY RECORD LABEL Lissie Maurus - or Lissie to her fans - was well on her way to making it big a decade ago. She had a deal with Columbia Records U.K. and a first album that went gold in the United Kingdom and Norway. The record sold well, but when her second L.P. wasn't a commercial success, she found herself without a record deal and at a crossroads. What kind of artist did she want to be? Was her pursuit of fame really worth it? Lissie opted for the uncharted territory of the independent artist - based from an Iowa farm, no less. It is a more viable business model in this age when singers can reach potential fans more easily via music streaming services and online sales. But there certainly are no guarantees. After Columbia Records U.K. dropped her, Lissie says she felt a little like she'd failed. But she said she also was relieved. Now she could do things her way. By mid-2015, she took what savings she had and bought the farm she now calls home. "I think some people were like, 'Well that's weird that you're going to, like, leave southern California and go live on a farm in Iowa, but OK.' You know, but I just knew, this is what I have to do. I have a gut feeling about this," she said. "I kind of just told everyone, like, 'I need to re-evaluate my life. I'm not going to stop making music. But I need to rethink how I want to go about it.'" By the time she moved to the farm, Lissie had already written some new songs. So she called producer and bass player Curt and together, they wrote the title track on her latest album, "My Wild West." The record came out in February and was well reviewed. Lissie also recently released a live acoustic album, recorded at Union Chapel in North London. Admittedly, she says, the traveling can be brutal. She's been touring in the United States and Europe much of this year. But because her overheads are low, most of what she makes in ticket and merchandise sales is hers. Financially, she says, this could be her best year yet. "I own all my new music, and I can go out and tour with just an acoustic guitar and sell out shows and, you know, come home and be like, 'OK, now I can put in a wood burning stove in my house,'" she smiled. Lissie's third album "My Wild West" is available now.

Ryan Reynold's daughters steal the show during the actor's Walk of Fame ceremony
(15 Dec 2016) RYAN REYNOLD'S ADORABLE DAUGHTERS STEAL THE SHOW DURING HIS WALK OF FAME CEREMONY In a rare family appearance, Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and the couple's two young daughters posed front and center at the "Deadpool" actor's star ceremony Thursday on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "I want to thank my wife, Blake, who is sitting right there, who is everything to me. You are the best thing, the best thing that has ever happened to me. Second only to this star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cut me some slack here. You make everything better - I mean absolutely everything in my life better. You have given us two of the most incredible children that I could ever hope to have. You've made me the father of my dreams when I thought I only had fun uncle potential. So thank you. I love you," Reynolds told the crowd outside the Dolby Theatre. He also dedicated his star to his father. "The last thing I'll say before I get off the stage is a tricky one about my dad. He's no longer with us. He never made things easy on anyone, especially himself. But he would have got a real kick out of this. So this is also for him. Thank you," he said. Toddler James stole the show when she rushed the stage, grabbed a microphone and hammed it up for the cheering crowd. "She sure did," said Reynolds in an interview after the event. "She's very good at that, yeah. She got pretty excited. She saw a microphone. It's like a moth to a flame." The couple's other daughter was born in September and her name still hasn't been made public. Actress Anna Faris was also on hand to celebrate her former "Just Friends" co-star. "I can't wait for the day I get to work with you again on screen. And I'm so happy for your incredibly wonderful and beautiful family and your two gorgeous children that I might take home later today," she joked. Reynolds plays a wise-cracking assassin in "Deadpool" and its upcoming sequel. He was nominated for a Golden Globe award for best actor in a film comedy or musical, a rare nomination for a superhero portrayal. "I don't really know what it means. It's incredible for the film to be recognized, you know? The individual recognition is great and I love that and I take it, but the fact that 'Deadpool,' the film as a whole, was nominated in its own category, that's extra special because that sort of breaks the glass ceiling for that genre that we're all pretty pumped up about," said Reynolds of the nods. The R-rated superhero romp also scored a nomination for best film, comedy or musical. The Globes awards ceremony is Jan. 8.

Tourism on the rise in Iran
(11 Nov 2016) LEAD IN: More western tourists are visiting Iran after a thaw in relations following last year's nuclear deal. STORY-LINE: Iranians are seeing more foreign tourists on their streets a year after the landmark nuclear deal that ended a decade of standoff with the world community. Home to beautiful mountains, breathtaking historical buildings and priceless artwork it has lots to offer the intrepid holiday maker. UNESCO, the United Nations culture agency, has 21 sites in Iran on its World Heritage List. They include the ruins of Persepolis and Pasargadae, the mosques and palace at Meidan Emam of Isfahan and other sites. Beyond that, local skiers and snowboarders boast of Iran's mountains, while Tehran enjoys a growing modern art scene. Shiite pilgrims also travel to different sites in the country. In the last few years, Iran reported having around 5 million tourists a year, most coming from Iraq and other neighbouring countries. Tehran's historical Grand Bazaar, situated in the south, is the largest and most important market in the capital. Every day thousands of traders and ordinary people come to the bazaar to do business, shopping or just pass through. Jacques Genevieve Sanchez is a French tourist visiting the bazaar. She came to Iran with her husband a week ago. She says they started planning this trip years ago but felt now was the right time to finally make that happen. "(We travelled to Iran) because we thought of the country many, many years ago and it seems to them that it is easiest today because there is a new connection between Europe and Iran and we notice that it's true", she says. Another tourist is Stefan Moeller from Germany. The businessman chose Iran as a holiday destination for him and his wife and one-year-old son. Stefan says he has found it an interesting and safe destination despite all the negative publicity it gets. "European people are afraid about Iran. They think there is war and some bad guys here but it is all nice here. Because it's so funny and you can have a lot of fun without those things that we have in Europe", he says. However there are lots of Middle Eastern laws here that are worlds apart from life in Europe. Alcohol is illegal and women are required by law to cover their hair. Homosexuals can also face the death penalty in Iran. While it may be getting more popular with Europeans, Americans make up less than one percent of tourists. However despite US travel warnings, an American luxury tour operator is currently promoting a new trip to Iran in May. Illinois-based Abercrombie & Kent is offering the tour to those willing to take the risk, describing it as the first opportunity to see an Iran opening up to the West after the nuclear deal. The cost of the 12-day tour starts at 5,600 US dollars. Iran and America haven't had formal diplomatic relations since the 1979 US Embassy takeover following the country's Islamic Revolution. The Swiss Embassy currently looks after American interests in the country. Abercrombie & Kent says that interchange between American tourists and the Iranian people will help bridge the gap between the two nations.

David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus' set for European premiere
(3 Nov 2016) BOWIE MUSICAL 'LAZARUS' SET TO OPEN IN LONDON The European premiere of David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus,' which played a sold-out Off-Broadway run earlier this year in New York, is set for November 8. Original New York cast members Michael C. Hall, Michael Esper, and Sophia Anne Caruso are reprising their roles in director Ivo van Hove's production. Bowie died in January from cancer. He was able to see the New York show before his death at age 69. The play starring "Dexter" and "Six Feet Under" actor Michael C. Hall, was a hit since its previews and Bowie's death made tickets even harder to come by. Bowie wrote the musical with Irish playwright Enda Walsh as a sequel to the 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth" by Walter Tevis, which inspired the 1976 film of the same name that he starred in. Michael C Hall stars as Newton, the character famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg. The play focuses on Newton as he remains still on Earth - a 'man' unable to die. The set list comprises some of Bowie's biggest hits _ including "Changes," "Heroes," "Absolute Beginners" and "Life on Mars" _ as well as new songs like "Lazarus," taken from Bowie's "Blackstar" album, released shortly before his death. Lazarus is scheduled to run in London through 22 January 2017.

All hopes lie on the world's last male northern white rhino
(28 Feb 2016) LEAD IN: The northern white rhino is on the brink of extinction. Only three remain on the planet - and they are under 24-hour armed guard. Now scientists are attempting IVF with surrogate females from a different subspecies in a race against time to keep the species alive. STORY-LINE: And then there were three. This is Sudan, the world's last remaining male northern white rhino. He lives at the Ol Pejeta conservancy in central Kenya along with two females, Fatu and Najin. Since his fellow male Suni died last year, the fate of the northern white rhino species rests on Sudan's shoulders. "There were two males and two females but we have lost one male, so we've got one male and two females," says keeper Zacharia Mutai. There are no known northern white rhinos in the wild. Sudan and the females are under 24-hour armed guard to protect them from poachers. "Well securing Northern white rhinos entails us to be out for at least 14 hours per shift. So everyone is out at around six in the evening and the other shift takes over at 10 am the next morning. So everyone is out and dedicated to the northern white rhinos," says guard Paul Waweru. Sudan got his name from his origin of birth, South Sudan. Born in 1973 and captured in 1975, he was taken to a zoo in the Czech Republic where he stayed in captivity for decades. He was brought back to Africa in 2009 for breeding together with three other rhinos - his current companions Fatu and Najin and the late male, Suni. The rhinos are protected, fed and groomed, and they seem to have forged good relationships with the keepers and guards. "He really enjoys being rubbed under the belly. Sometimes behind the ears. He's ok when he is being rubbed. And even sometimes we can use a brush to scratch him and he likes that," says Mutai. Sudan is keen to mate, but there's a problem. At 43 years old, he's not as strong as he used to be. His semen quality is not the best and neither is his ability to mount naturally. Attempts to breed the rhinos have failed, so now the keepers are turning to desperate measures. "Right now Sudan is too old, but he is looking for the females, but when we look at him the hind leg is weak of which he is not able to mount on the females, because it can't support itself, that's why it can't mate in a natural way, so but we have collected semen before for the use of IVF," says Mutai. "Also one of the females - she has got the same problem like Sudan, the hind leg is bad, it's weak, so she can't be able to support herself when being mounted. So the only way we can do it is we can combine semen from the male and also collect eggs from the two females and plant (them) in a southern white rhino of which the southern white rhino would be a surrogate mother. It's just a way of trying to save them. If it works it will help to save this endangered species." The Ol Pejeta Conservancy says this IVF procedure using a southern white female as a surrogate has never been done before, and is not without risks. The remaining three northern whites are not getting any younger and could die before the procedure has been successfully developed. Rhinos are native to South Sudan, Congo, Central Africa Republic and Chad, countries that have witnessed years of civil wars making conservation efforts futile. This subspecies has been decimated by poachers who kill them for their horns. The horns are in high demand in parts of Asia, where some people claim they have medicinal properties for treating everything from hangovers to cancer. Rhino horns as ornaments have been prized for centuries for their beautiful see-through colour when carved. Theoretically stem cells can produce any body tissue.

Country stars talk about Shania Twain's influence at CMT Artists of the Year show
(20 Oct 2016) FEMALE ARTISTS SING PRAISES FOR SHANIA TWAIN Country star Shania Twain is the most successful female country artist and has influenced singers in all genres. Twain received the Artist of a Lifetime award at the CMT Artists of the Year show in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday (19 OCT. 2016). From R&B singer Jill Scott to fellow country star Carrie Underwood, women have long admired Twain's powerful pop country songs and fashion style. Twain herself said the honor feels like she's achieved success in her career. "I sort of feel like I have arrived at a point in my life that is being recognized and respected and appreciated," Twain said. "And that is just this wonderful feeling of relief that I have accomplished something to this level. So it's a relief and it feels really good." Scott, pop singer Meghan Trainor and country singer Kelsea Ballerini performed a medley of her hits for her. "Well, it's a huge compliment first of all because all of these three girls have mega voices," Twain said. "Are incredible entertainers and very successful in their own right. So it's a compliment and I will enjoy it thoroughly, sitting there and watching these girls bring my songwriting to life in their own way. There is no greater compliment." Scott said it was impossible not to be influenced by Twain's music and style. "Who is not a fan of Shania Twain? The woman came on the scene, supposedly country," Scott said. "Blew completely over into pop. And made a mark of sexiness and great lyrics and a wonderful voice. She's a really powerful woman and I am into powerful women." Underwood too said she paved the way for artists like her. "I think we were all definitely influenced by Shania, even if we don't realize it," Underwood said. "Because her music was just so.. She was just her and it was different and kind of revolutionary at the time. She definitely paved the way for a lot of us that are doing what we do now and lucky enough to get to do that. It's cool that she is being honored." The show will air on CMT at 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, Oct. 20.

Bovines close to ancient Aurochs recreated
(13 Oct 2015) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLY Milovice - 13 October 2015 1. Various of bovines closely related to aurochs leaving cattle truck 2. Bovines running toward camera 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Frans Jacobs, Dutch cattle rancher who raised aurochs: "They are supposed to be very strong cattle, they eat whatever they can get and they will survive, they will survive us. If you leave them nice and quiet, they will multiply without hardly any attention." 4. Aerial of bovines in field 5. Various of bovines inside enclosure 6. SOUNDBITE (Czech) Dalibor Dostal, Director of Conservation Group "European Wildlife": "They came from the Netherlands as a result of a breeding back programme that started in 2008 from primitive cattle breeds, which according to genetic analysis are as close as possible to the extinct aurochs. They select the animals most similar to it and by this process of breeding back we should be able to get an animal in a few generations that looks like the aurochs and also has the same impact on the environment." 7. Various shots, including aerial shots, of bovines in large field STORYLINE: A Dutch breeding programme has recreated massive bovines closely related to aurochs, once the heaviest European land mammal and the wild ancestor of today's cattle that became extinct in the 17th century. A small herd was introduced to a Czech sanctuary on Tuesday, joining some wild horses. Such an animal has not been seen on Czech territory for hundreds of years. By eating invasive vegetation, these animals will help to maintain the steppe character of the land. After a nine-hour drive and few more minutes of hesitation, six calves - five cows and a bull - jumped out of a truck at dawn to take the first look at their new home at the former Milovice military base, 35 kilometres (22 miles) northeast of Prague. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Police stop migrants trying to enter Croatia
(18 Oct 2015) Thousands of migrants and refugees have been stranded in the Balkans, trying to cross into Croatia from Serbia, as fog and cold weather sets in. Huge crowds of people scuffled with a line of Croatian police who had set up a cordon preventing them from entering the country on Sunday. Across the border in Serbia, thousands of people have been sitting in some 50 buses since the early hours of Sunday morning waiting to cross to Croatia. More are expected to arrive during the day. The Balkan migrant route switched to Slovenia early Saturday after Hungary's right-wing government closed its border to Croatia for the influx, citing security concerns and saying it wants to protect the European Union from an uncontrolled flow of people.

Child prodigy astounds with musical abilities
(18 Nov 2016) Alma Deutscher is a composer, virtuoso pianist and concert violinist who wrote her first sonata five years ago and whose first full opera will have its world premiere in Vienna next month. All of which is very special because she is just 11 years old. While loving and living music, the child prodigy from Dorking, England, is also busy scraping her knees tree climbing, meeting friends on the playground, swimming or any number of other activities that an 11-year old would enjoy. But when focused on her passion, she's all business. Rehearsing "Cinderella" recently, Alma gave instructions and sung phrases in a clear child's soprano, switching from piano to violin and back as she accompanied the soloists. It all seemed effortless. And the energy doesn't stop flowing off stage. Alma doesn't even try to sit still, gesturing and fidgeting as she talks about "Cinderella." She says she's extremely excited at the prospect of the December 29 premiere. Alma's heroine in her version of the popular story is a composer, the step-mother is an opera director, the two step-sisters are haughty divas. And the prince is a poet who finds Cinderella through a melody she wrote. Her future plans include composing a piano concerto, and a symphony. She has already started on a book which she wants made into a film, complete with her own score.

Rhodesia Proclaims Independence - 1965 | Today in History | 11 Nov 16
On November 11, 1965, Rhodesia proclaimed its independence from Britain. November 11th Rhodesia and the Unilateral Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. Ian Smith chose 11am on Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the 1918 armistice, for his radio broadcast in which he made the Unilateral Declaration of Independence. Ian Smith's government assumed wide powers, whilst in Britain Harold Wilson announced that all ties with the rebel regime were broken as a result of the declaration. The declaration provoked immediate calls from black African leaders for Britain to take immediate and decisive action to crush the rebellion.

Prince Philip attends James Bond-themed gala dinner with Sir Roger Moore and Dame Judi Dench
(10 Jun 2016) DENCH JOINS CELEBRATIONS OF 60TH DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARDS Royals and celebrities alike attended a Bond themed party in Buckinghamshire Thursday (9 JUNE 2016) to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh awards. The fundraiser, hosted by David Walliams, was attended by the Duke of Edinburgh himself, joined by fellow Royals, his son and daughter-in-law, the Duke and Countess of Wessex. Bond stars including Dame Judi Dench, Joanna Lumley and Naomi Harris mingled on the lawn of Stoke Park, which featured in Bond movies "Goldfinger" and "Tomorrow Never Dies." Dench paid homage to her Bond past with diamante stickers spelling 007 on her lower neck. After the release of "Spectre" late last year, there has been much speculation as to whether Daniel Craig will return to the iconic role for another movie. And as for the Royals, the celebrations don't end here - with Prince Philip's 95th birthday Friday (10 JUNE 2016) and events taking place all weekend for the Queen's 90th birthday.

Fuel cell technology boosts drone flight
(29 Mar 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4029669 LEAD IN: A UK-based energy tech company is demonstrating how hydrogen fuel cells can be used to significantly extend the range of commercial drones. Intelligent Energy says its technology can extend flight times from 15 minutes to up to two hours, benefiting a range of industries from inspection to search and rescue. STORY-LINE: Lift-off for this four-rotored quadcopter, but this is a drone with a difference. In this muddy Loughborough farmer's field, around 170 kilometres north of London, experts from UK-based energy group Intelligent Energy are testing what they claim to be a game-changer for drone tech. While it may not appear different from current commercially-available UAVs, this drone is powered using two hydrogen fuel cells. The only waste product is warm air and water. This, Intelligent Energy claims, solves two of the biggest problems associated with current battery-powered drones: flight time and re-fuelling. "So, I'm holding a drone with a fuel cell technology on board instead of a battery," explains Julian Hughes, acting managing director of Intelligent Energy's Consumer Electronics Division. "So, we've integrated the fuel cells to give an extended flight time over and above traditional batteries." Having announced last December they'd developed a prototype range-extender for drones, Intelligent Energy now feels confident enough to demonstrate its technology. On top of the drone are two hydrogen fuel cell stacks fitted with fans to usher in oxygen, therefore prompting the chemical reaction. Underneath is a 350 millilitres hydrogen tank which, Intelligent Energy say, can be changed in around a minute once depleted. Hughes says the water by-product produced by the reaction is so minimal it disappears as vapour, similar to what humans breathe out. They claim any added weight is negated by the extended flight time. "So, on the top are the two fuel cell stacks, they need oxygen which is from the air, which is what the fans help and underneath is the hydrogen," he explains. "So, the hydrogen and the oxygen run across the fuel cell plates and produce electricity." Intelligent Energy believes this application of hydrogen fuel cell technology will be a game-changer for the rapidly-growing commercial and enterprise drone market. Independent research firm, MarketsandMarkets, expects the global commercial drone market to sky-rocket in the coming years, reaching $5.59 billion USD by 2020. But, Hughes says it's currently held back by the short range and long re-charging times associated with conventional batteries. "So, the main problem with current battery technology on drones is flight time - you get around 15 minutes and then you have to re-charge the battery for a number of hours," he says. "And with fuel cell technology that we now have put on board, the flight times are significantly increased, up to between an hour and two hours. "And no need to recharge the battery, all you need to do is change the fuel source and that takes around a minute." It's thought longer flight times and quicker refueling will open a wide range of possibilities for high-flying drone tech. Inspection, search and rescue, aerial photography, precision agriculture and parcel delivery could all benefit. Having completed an engineering PhD at Cambridge University, Dr. Ben Todd founded London-based Arcola Energy, an engineering services company which specialises in fuel cells and hydrogen. Dr. Todd says drones are potentially a good use for hydrogen fuel cell tech, but only when its application outweighs the added cost and complexity. Dr. Todd says people shouldn't be worried about any safety implications.

Inside the Shah's former palace
(26 Mar 2016) LEAD IN: The former home of Iran's Shah in Tehran is attracting many visitors, fascinated by pre-revolution royal times. The Iranian royal family spent their last days in the Niavaran palace complex, before the 2500-year old Persian monarchy came to an end in 1979. STORY-LINE This palace to the north of the capital Tehran was home to the last Iranian Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and his family. Built in an 11 hectares (27 acres) estate, the Niavaran place has served as a favourite resort for Iranian kings since the 19th century. Reza Pahlavi finished building his main residence here, called the Private Palace, in 1967. But unlike other buildings in the complex, the Private Palace is strikingly modern. Museum guide Kurosh Salehi says: "what distinguishes this palace (from other Persian ones) is the modern design, which of course includes some elements of Iranian and Persian architecture." According to Salehi, The palace was originally aimed to host royal guests, but later on the Shah and his wife, queen Farah Diba, chose it as their main residence, spending at least 9 months there. Designed by Iranian architect, Mohsen Forooghi, the palace has a contemporary look, without the curves and domes typical of the older Islamic architecture. Elements of Persian architecture, such as stucco and tile work are also visible. The palace is still full of mementos of the past, including many gifts given by foreign leaders, like a golden decorative bowl presented by former U.S president Nixon in 1973. French-made Sèvres vases decorate the halls, some of them with the painted portraits of Reza Pahlavi and his wife Farah Diba. One of the most treasured items is a rug called "Carpet of the well-known" featuring images of Iranian kings as well as famous historical figures, including Jesus Christ, Alexander the Great, Henry V of England and Napoléon Bonaparte. Visitor Hosseini says: "the architecture is full of energy. Life is flowing inside things here. It depicts the nature of Iranian art." The peaceful exterior is also visited by many tourists. Museum guide Shahrzad Pakniyat explains: "the entire garden was originally as vast as 11 hectares (27 acres). The private palace, which was the main residence (of the Shah and his family) is 9,000 square metres (10763 square yards). It is composed of three stories and it has a convertible aluminium roof." There are two older palaces built during the Qajar dynasty (1785-1925) in the vast estate, as well as a library and a museum featuring royal family vehicles. Two Rolls-Royce cars are on display, as well as motorbikes and electric cars.

Fight against IS militants continues in Mosul
(26 Nov 2016) Mosul experienced another day of heavy fighting on Saturday, as Iraqi troops continued their push to dislodge Islamic State militants controlling the majority of the northern Iraqi city. The Associated Press filmed a unit from the Najaf battalion of Iraq's special forces coming under attack along a frontline extending between the neighbourhoods of Bakr and Kirkukli. The troops fired mortars and machine guns in response and were supported by artillery and airstrikes from the United States-led coalition. Over one million civilians are thought to be trapped in Mosul, and aid stations received numerous casualties throughout the day. Iraqi military and hospital officials said mortar rounds fired by IS militants overnight and early on Saturday killed 16 civilians in neighbourhoods already retaken by troops. The U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR, says at least 73,000 Iraqis have fled Mosul since the government's campaign to retake the city began on October 17.

Rare Glimpse Inside California’s Death row
(30 Dec 2015) With California's lethal injection protocol in limbo, the nearly 750 inmates awaiting death in the state's prison system are more likely to die from natural causes or suicide than execution. San Quentin State Prison officials on Tuesday provided a rare glimpse inside the country's largest death row where 725 condemned men call home as they await a final decision on a proposed one-drug execution method and a 2016 vote on whether to scrap the death penalty altogether. Hundreds of killers have been sentenced to die in the most populous state since the death penalty was restored in 1978, but just about a dozen have been executed. No one has been executed in California since 2006, when a federal judge forced the still-ongoing review of the state's lethal injection procedures. Many inmates don't even think about the possibility of actually being executed in California and instead just act as if they are serving life sentences. "Most of us sit here for years and years … waiting on the appeals process so it's not really something that's on the forefront of your mind," said Charles Crawford from behind a chain link fence in an exercise yard at San Quentin's death row. Crawford was sentenced to die in 2002 for the killings of two people, including a teenage girl. "It's like an abstract thought because it's not something that happens every day," Crawford said. "Since I've been here they've only carried out two executions, you know what I mean, so it's almost like it's not even a real punishment for a lot of people."

Watts Riots - 1965  | Today in History | 11 Aug 16
On August 11, 1965, rioting and looting that claimed 34 lives broke out in the predominantly African American Watts section of Los Angeles. Storyline: Riots In Watts Section Of Los Angeles Create Destruction A sorrowful page is written in American history as six days of rioting in an African-American section of Los Angeles leave behind scenes reminiscent of war-torn cities. Fire damage alone is estimated at $200 million. Fire-men had to be issued flak suits to protect them from sniper's bullets as they fought fires. No attempt has yet been made to arrive at the losses suffered at the hands of looters who stole everything from liquor to babies' play pens. As the National Guard moved in, 14.000 strong, approximately 3.000 arrests were made. Civil Rights leaders have issued statements deploring the lawlessness. An uneasy calm now prevails in the devastated area as 1.000 Guards remain on patrol and curfew has been imposed.

Colourful characters from one of the UK's biggest music record fairs
(2 Feb 2015) Vinyl record technology dates back to the 19th Century and has long since been superseded by digital technology - but despite this, vinyl is becoming increasingly popular with record collectors. At the UK's biggest record fair in London, collectors are will to spend large sums of cash for the rarest and most sought-after releases by their favourite bands. They scratch easily, you can't play them in the car and the vinyl heyday has long since passed, but despite this, music fans across the world still chose to spin the black discs. So what's everybody getting in a spin about? The needle touches down and the analogue sound bursts into life on this tiny portable record player. Here at the London Record Fair at Olympia, thousands of record sellers and collectors converge to do business. One of those on the look out for a rare vinyl is Andy Biddle.... if his tattoos don't give away his favourite band then his nickname 'Pistols' might. Punk Andy is obsessed with influential and controversial London band the Sex Pistols. He has spent his life inking his heroes onto his skin and buying their rare vinyl records. Andy owns 500 Sex Pistols albums but is trying to curb his hobby because it is becoming increasingly more expensive as the vinyls become rarer and rarer. Of course it wasn't always this way and he picked up the first records in collection for pocket money. "The first (Sex) Pistols record I bought was My Way and I paid 64 pence (USD $1) for that down Rumblelows (a UK electical store) in 1978. Now I'm paying... the most expensive single I've bought is God Save the Queen, Turkish (special edition) and I've never seen another one of them. That cost me �650, (USD $1,000)" he says. And when he's not buying Sex Pistols vinyl records he is getting them tattooed on his wrists - although he's fast running out of space for many more. "Right that's the catalogue number for the A&M (record company) of God Save the Queen and that's the catalogue number for Anarchy in the UK," he says. The Olympia fair is the largest record fair in the UK and is organised by Rob Lythall. Organiser Lythall says this is his busiest time, and he'll even help manning the crowded stalls when necessary. Olympia is one of the most important record fairs in the world and always attracts a strong collection of foreign buyers hoping to pick up a bargain in Britain. Lythall explains: "This is the big show in the UK, it happens several times a year and we get people from literally all over the world - South America, obviously the USA, from Europe, Russia, Poland and all the old Eastern Bloc and obviously China and Japan. So the whole world descends on Olympia for these vinyl shows." Gertee Kuipers is visiting from the Netherlands. Kuipers is an Elvis Presley fan but he's managed to pick-up something unusual. A single by British television presenter Noel Edmonds... although Kuipers freely admits he's never heard of Edmonds before. Having picked up the record for the price of a cup of tea means Kuipers can afford to take a chance, and he's hoping that when he gets back to the Netherlands and can research it properly then he will have discovered a rare gem. "It's very nice to look out in the Netherlands what it is and if other people have it and "ooh, they don't have", "what is this?" That's very nice." Another European visitor is Frenchman Roland Cangalot who has travelled all the way from Toulouse in the south of France to be at the record fair. Cangalot is a Depeche Mode fan and finds it much easier to add to his collection in London - close to the 80s electronic artist's home town in Basildon, Essex. The demographic at the show is very middle-aged and very male. The Olympia Record Fair opened for one day only on January 31.

Nun resists Vatican attempt to shut German abbey
(26 Dec 2016) Sister Apollonia Buchinger has walked the labyrinthine halls of Altomuenster Abbey in Germany for two and a half decades and is now the last Bridgettine nun living there. Without the minimum three nuns needed for a monastery, the Vatican has ordered Altomuenster closed. But Sister Apollonia fought back. She decided to open up a precious library that scholars consider the "holy grail" for Bridgettine research and the thousands of works of art in its possession. This library has been off-limits to all but nuns for more than five centuries. Scholars had only a brief glimpse at the hundreds of tomes with a plan to return and fully catalog the collection when the order for the dissolution of the monastery came in from the Vatican. The person now in charge, Sister Gabriele Konrad, locked the collection down, along with some 2,300 statues, paintings and other works of art, as part of her duties to inventory Altomuenster's collections. Since 1496, the former Benedictine abbey in Bavaria has housed the Altomuenster branch of the order founded by Saint Bridget in Sweden in the 14th century, which uniquely is run by women. It's one of three from the original branch of the order still operating today. It survived the Protestant reformation that saw many northern branches destroyed, escaped the 30 Years War unscathed and even avoided becoming a hospital for the Nazi SS in the final days of World War II. But what war couldn't do, modernity has and it appears that the monastery will become another casualty of the shrinking Catholic Church unless the Vatican changes its mind. Sister Apollonia has appealed to the Vatican for more time, convinced she will be able to turn things around with help from other Bridgettine Orders to start training her own novices to become nuns. With the help of her only postulant, a 38-year-old who left a law career last year to become a nun but is unable to continue without more nuns to teach her, Sister Apollonia's started a blog, a Twitter account and even a Facebook page to try and generate interest in Altomuenster. Sister Gabriele points out, however, that the decline of Altomuenster has been going on for decades and that previous attempts to bring in other nuns failed. For example, when two Bridgettines came from Mexico came in 2012 only to return home after two weeks because they were homesick and didn't fit in. As a Papal Order, the Vatican itself has oversight of Altomuenster and if the plans go ahead to close it down, all of its property would be turned over to the local church authorities, in this case the dioceses of Munich and Freising, which sought to downplay the significance of the library in a statement to the AP. The dioceses said the collection includes "a large number of antiphonaries from the 18th century, most in very used and some in damaged condition," and that six antiphonaries - books containing religious chants - from the Middle Ages have "already been studied by scholars." The Bridgettine Order was founded by Saint Bridget of Sweden in the mid-14th Century and was open to both men and women. The Order's rules called for a monastery to have a maximum 60 nuns and 13 priests and be governed by an abbess; the nuns all wear a distinctive veil topped with a white "crown" with five red points representing Jesus' five wounds from crucifixion. If the plans go ahead to close the monastery, the Munich and Freising dioceses would take over its properties - which is why Sister Apollonia believes it's being closed. Altomuenster is the terminus of a subway line from Munich, one of Germany's most expensive cities, and the monastery has many acres of fields and forests in addition to the city-block sized abbey - property thought to be worth tens of millions of euros.

Luxury iPic theater opens in Manhattan
(7 Oct 2016) LUXURY IPIC THEATER OPENS IN MANHATTAN More and more people are opting to stay home to watch movies these days. iPic Entertainment is continuing its effort to reverse that trend with the opening of its first iPic luxury theater in New York City. The iPic Theaters Fulton Market opens its door to the public Friday (7 OCT), offering what iPic Entertainment CEO and Founder Hamid Hashemi says is the most comfortable way to watch a movie in a movie theater. "The lap of luxury - as you can see we're sitting in a pod. These are custom designed patented pods that encapsulate two leather-covered seats. The seats are reclining, push of a button, you can get your seats reclined, pillows and blankets, popcorn is no charge. This is truly an affordable luxury, really the best way that can watch a movie. If you were to watch a movie at your home, this is how you would be watching it." Hashemi maintains that even with advancements in home entertainment, there's still nothing like watching a movie - with other people - at the theater. "You can have the greatest kitchen in your house, you still go out to a restaurant. You're going out to a restaurant because you're going for a shared experience. Movies are the same. Yes, you can watch them at home, people have the greatest flat screen TVs now and a great sound system but still really nothing replaces sharing those feelings and emotions with a group of people." This is the 15th luxury theater iPic Entertainment has opened in the United States since 2006, with other theaters in such cities as Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Chicago and Redmond in Washington State. Part of the luxury experience is getting to eat food - beyond just popcorn, nachos and Raisinets and served right to your seat. iPic theaters feature food developed by Chef Sherry Yard, who says she's a movie buff herself. "We're all busy. We don't have that much time. Quite often you're running, you're trying to get to the theater to see a great movie and you're trying to fit in a dinner right before hand and here at iPic, we've redefined the way you can dine in the dark. It's truly amazing that you can have tuna on crispy rice, you can have a lobster roll, Caesar salads, filet mignon sliders, just the most amazing food right here at your seat, laid back, watching the best movies ever." Yard says the food is crafted so moviegoers won't make a mess while eating during the film. "In addition to our creativity, the most important thing is that the guest can dine in the dark and when you dine in the dark you can't really see perfectly and you're watching the movie, so you need food that's really going to interact and handheld items. So things you can pick up with your fingers, things that are easy to eat - never too loud, never too smelly." The company even features what it calls "ninja" butlers who will bring people food in the theater before and during the movie, as quickly and quietly as possible, so as not to disturb the movie watching experience. There's even a full restaurant and bar upstairs at iPic Theaters Fulton Market called the Tuck Room, featuring Yard's food and some creative drinks from executive bartender and sommelier Adam Seger. He says he calls his approach to providing drinks as "farm to glass." "We're really in touch with the seasons, with making everything we possibly can make from scratch from maraschino cherries, our own homemade ginger beer to even hand cutting our own ice for our Old Fashions and for Manhattans and then we also are inspired from everything from the rich history in lower Manhattan." The iPic Theater is located in the Fulton Market Building in Manhattan's South Street Seaport.

Prince Harry: sergeant gave me confidence back after losing mother
(20 Sep 2016) PRINCE HARRY: SERGEANT 'GAVE ME CONFIDENCE' AFTER LOSING MOTHER On Tuesday (20 SEPT. 2016), Britain's Prince Harry paid tribute to an unnamed sergeant at Sandhurst who helped him regain his confidence after losing his mother. Harry was speaking in Aberdeenshire in Scotland at the Mackie Academy - a secondary school which hosted a youth mentor training day on behalf of The Diana Award, set up in memory of Harry's late mother. Princess Diana died in August 1997 when Harry was 12. The young royal said his personal mentor was his Colour Sergeant from his time at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. "I was at a young stage in my life where I was probably lacking a bit in guidance," revealed the royal. "I lost my mum when I was very young and suddenly I am surrounded by a huge number of men in the army and he was someone who teased me at the right moments and gave me the confidence to go forward and actually confidence in yourself to know who you are and to push forward and try to help others basically." He didn't reveal the sergeant's name, saying "he wouldn't want me to." Later in the day, Harry visited a youth sports initiative at Robert Gordon University (RGU), taking part in a hockey game and a quick game of one-on-one soccer.

Integrated school helps Syrians adapt to life in Sudan
(23 Nov 2016) LEAD IN: A dedicated school in Sudan for both Syrian and Sudanese female students is being hailed a success for integrating and welcoming refugees. More than 150,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in Sudan since the start of war in Syria. STORY-LINE: Female students arrive for classes at Somayya bint Al-Khayyat Standard Girls School for Basic Education on the outskirts of Khartoum. While it looks like a regular busy morning assembly, this school has one big difference - the majority of students are Syrian. The school is made up of 240 Syrian girls and 120 Sudanese students. Of the 25 teachers, 17 are Syrian and the rest are Sudanese. There's no segregation and all classes are a mix of girls from the same age group. The shared language and similarities in culture help the students to bond with each other. The joint Syrian-Sudanese school is being hailed as a successful program for integrating Syrian refugees into a new life in Sudan. Ola Othman is a 14 year-old Syrian student who came to Sudan with her family six months ago to flee the fighting in her home country. "All my colleagues are good. We have no problems among us, ever. They are kind. Teachers are excellent. They explain everything we want, and answer all our questions. My grades are excellent and I hope to stay so," she says. The Sudanese government has allied the school with the Committee to Support Syrian Families, which is a group helping Syrian refugees in Khartoum. The group provides the equipment and supplies needed to bring the school closer to those in Syria. However the school teaches the official Sudanese curriculum, but with added extras to cater for the Syrian students. "We teach them English, because the Sudanese government schools do not teach English until the fifth grade and above. We teach it from the first grade. They (students) also study Syria's geography and history," says Nusaiba Al-Ayoubi, supervisor of Syrian students in Somayya bint Al-Khayyat school. The deputy head teacher, Laila Mostafa, says the students are progressing well in the shared environment. Ola Othman moved to Sudan with her father, mother and two brothers. Like other Syrian families, they entered without a visa. Sudan allows Syrians to enter its territory without a visa and subsequently treats them as Sudanese citizens in terms of free education, treatment in government hospitals, freedom of movement and acquisitions and the opening of projects. For these reasons and others, more than 150,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in Sudan since the start of war in Syria. They are called here guests not refugees. Ola's father works as a blacksmith and earns approximately 4000 Sudanese pounds per month. Half of that goes on rent for the apartment they live in. Ola's mother works as a teacher in the Syrian school and earns around 500 pounds per month. Ola says she has high hopes of becoming an eye doctor when she finishes her schooling. "I want to become an oculist, because the field of ophthalmology does not deal with blood, for when I was in Syria I had a problem with blood, because there is always blood, blood, blood. So, I am afraid of blood, and I liked to be an oculist due to lack of surgery in ophthalmology. I only do not want to conduct surgery, I just want to examine the eyes (for) diseases, the nearsightedness, farsightedness and so on," she says.

Joe Jackson after the death of his son Michael
(30 Jun 2009) JOE JACKSON AT BET AWARDS Michael Jackson's father Joe Jackson is dealing personally with the loss of his son. But he spent Sunday night at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium at the BET Awards, as a large segment of the music industry paid tributes to Michael Jackson. The man who trained his family to become the Jackson Five said, "I just wish that Michael could have been here and seen them celebrate him, himself. But so sadly, he's not here, so I'm here to celebrate for him." The elder Jackson told reporters that Michael's three children are staying "at the Encino house, with Katherine and me," and that they understand the magnitude of what's happened. He added, "They love being there with us." He said the the mood at the Encino house is not one of celebration, but "there's a lot of fans standing around the gate." Joe Jackson said there are memorial plans in the works, but he couldn't discuss them because the arrangements are still being worked out. Meanwhile, longtime family friend Reverend Al Sharpton said "They're going to do what they feel is right to privately memorialize him, and then we have all kinds of proposals of maybe doing one big day all over the world, maybe on his birthday." Reverend Sharpton added that the family wants to know what happened to cause Michael Jackson's death. Sharpton said "They want answers. Here's a young man who clearly was healthy, just passed an insurance exam and he was a relatively young guy. So of course they want answers as to what happened." The elder Jackson summed up his -- and the world's -- feelings about his son Michael: "He was the greatest star in the world. Too bad he had to pass away, and the world didn't recognize him when he was living."

Trials of the world's fastest all-electric commuter ferry
(28 Oct 2016) LEAD IN: Experts in Sweden are trialling the world's fastest electric commuter ferry - a supercharged vessel capable of hitting top speeds of 30 knots (approx. 56 kilometres per hour). Those involved in the project believe the vessel's speed, range and low environmental impact will convince commuters to trade in their daily drive for a waterborne journey instead. STORY-LINE: Just outside Stockholm's busy city centre, a future vision of urban travel is being trialled and optimised. Travelling at around 25 knots (approx. 46.3 kilometres per hour) through this calm Swedish waterway is the air-supported BB Green electric commuter demo vessel named 'Airiel'. Instead of a chugging motor down in its hull, there's this humming 200kWh Lithium Ion Titanate battery bank. That, combined with the boat's unique design, delivers fast, waterborne transport and emission-free travel. "With the traffic congestion you're experiencing in most cities and the urbanisation coming up, you can't expand the roads how much you want, but there is a lot of space on the waterways. So, why not use the waterways?" says Hans Thornell, CEO of Green City Ferries: "If you look here in Stockholm, for example, there's very few boats and a lot of cars." BB Green is a European Union-funded project that includes eight different collaborating organisations. Its goal is to create a fast, 30-knot (approx. 56 kilometres per hour) commuter ferry that can accommodate around 75 people, plus 15 bicycles. The aim is to eventually source energy for recharging the batteries from sustainable sources, such as wind, hydro or tidal power. BB Green vessels are initially intended to have a range of up to 14 nautical miles (approx. 26 kilometres) at high speeds. Those involved with the project believe the rapidly recharging batteries make it a competitive choice for a number of routes and commuter journeys. "The battery technology is evolving very, very fast," says Thornell. "A couple of years ago, when we introduced super-charging it was quite new, now it's common. "You can charge this boat, for example, you can run for half an hour and you get around 20 kilometres away, and then you charge for, let's say 15 minutes with a quite high current and that is thanks to the new battery technology." This 20 by 6 metre demo boat has been a long time in the making, around eight years. The BB Green project was first initiated in 2008. It gained the funding it needed in 2011. The boat was constructed in Riga, Latvia and first launched in June. Now being extensively trialled and optimised on Stockholm's calm waterways, it's also being demonstrated to a host of transport authorities and regional bosses from across Europe. "When people have been talking about electric boats or zero-emission boats, they have thought old fashioned ways," says Ulf Tudem, CEO of Effect Ships International AS, a Norwegian ship design company involved with the project. "They thought; 'Okay, we would like to go eight knots, seven knots, like 15 kilometres per hour,' we said; 'Why don't we faster? Like 30 knots?' And people have said; 'Is that possible, we can do 55 kilometres per hour on the boat?" Key to the ferry's high speeds is its unique Air Supported Vessel (ASV) technology that reduces water resistance by around 40 percent. Using an electric fan system and its unique hull shape, approximately 80 percent of the vessel's weight is supported on a cushion of air. "We take an air-cushioned vessel, a new fashion of an air-cushioned vessel, we combine it with state-of-the-art building techniques like carbon fibre, and then we have the best propulsion system, like Volvo IPS system," says Tudem.

China shows off J20 stealth jet fighter
(1 Nov 2016) LEAD IN: Aviation fans have been given a rare glimpse of the J-20 stealth fighter jet at one of the biggest air shows in Asia. But for many at the International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in China it's the daring aerial displays that thrill. STORY-LINE: China's Air Force's Bayi Aerobatic Team take to the skies to kick off the International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition 2016. Known as Air Show China, the event is undrway in the country's southern city of Zhuhai. Flying home grown J-10 fighters, the unit was founded in 1962 and has over the years performed more than 500 times for delegations from 166 countries and regions. Aerobatic teams from Russia, UK and Pakistan are here to show off their dizzying stunts to the thousands of onlookers below. This year sees the first time the UK Royal Air Force's Red Arrows perform in China. "Just being here and having all the aircraft in the sky and the UK represented was a tremendous honour for us at this prestigious air show. As for the display itself, it went fine actually. We were up against the weather a little bit. We were surprised when the visibility got worse during the show and there was a slight bit of cloud cover which made some of the manoeuvres a little bit difficult. But it was great and it was nice to see a large crowd," says Lieutenant Joe Hourston, executive officer of the Red Arrow. China's J-20 stealth fighter made a public debut at the opening of the air show, in the latest sign of the growing sophistication of the country's military technology. With huge cheers from the crowd, the fifth-generation warplane, which outwardly resembles the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor in service with the U.S. military, performed a short set of manoeuvres The long-range J-20, armed with air-to-air missiles, performed its first test flight in 2011 and has been the object of feverish attention by the nation's aviation buffs ever since. Among other recently developed Chinese aircraft appearing at the week long air show is the Y-20 large transport aircraft, with a maximum takeoff weight of around 200 tons. The plane is being introduced into the People's Liberation Army to carry out aerial command-and-control operations and parachute drops. Also drawing attention is the Chinese newly developed amphibious AG600. About the size of a Boeing 737 - far larger than any other plane built to take off and land on water, AG600 has a maximum flight range of 2,800, with maximum take-off weight of 53.5 tonnes. Another newly developed, but this time unmanned combat aerial vehicle is also making its debut here. With length of 9 metres and wingspan of 17, the UAV named Cloud Shadow, has battlefield surveillance and missile launching capability. Its producer, the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), says it is more capable than the Global Hawk in regard of the multi-tasks capability. 140 aircraft from 42 countries and regions are on display at the air show and nearly half of them are products of AVIC. "People feel that the current product we have on display not only fulfils their function requirements, but also has a charming outlook and appeal in the sense of the industrial designs, the aerodynamic configurations and even the design and configuration of capsule cabins. This has shown an overhaul promotion of our industrial design and manufacture capability," says Zhang Xinguo, Vice President of AVIC. This year marks the 11th International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition. The show runs 1st to 6th November 2016.

Vienna's riding school has 1st woman trainer
(14 Sep 2016) Vienna's Spanish Riding School has appointed a woman as horse trainer - a first in its almost 500-year-old history. Thirty-year-old Hannah Zeitlhofer was handed the typical hat of the horse-trainers in a ceremony. It takes between eight and 12 years to finish the horse training education.

March on Washington - 1963  | Today in History | 28 Aug 16
On August 28, 1963, March on Washington was the first large-scale protest rally held in Washington D.C. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The March On Washington Just one hundred years after Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves, 200.000 march in Washington to rally for civil rights. In an orderly gathering at the Lincoln Memorial, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. makes his most stirring address - "I have a dream..." and other black leaders urge Congress to pass the Civil Rights Bill to end racial inequity. They call for "Action Now" - the theme of the monstrous rally. None of the disorder that authorities feared develops. It is a serious gathering that is tinged with good-humor as if the demonstrators have finally found strength in each other.
