    HURTLING just a few metres above the sea at speeds comparable to airliners, this enormous flying hotel could have carried some 3,000 passengers at speeds of 460mph. The Aerocon Wingship could have been a revolutionary way to travel - dwarfing the world's biggest airliners as it was was twice the size of a jumbo jet. 8The Aerocon Wingship would have hurtled across the world's oceansCredit: Tim Samedov/CITIZENSNIP 8 With ambitious planes to carry thousands of passeng 1,500 tons of cargo, the 400 ton, 566ft long machine was a concept funded by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects (DARPA). Engineers predicted mammoth aircraft could travel around 12,000 miles, powered by 20 rocket engines attached to wings near the plane's nose. But unlike airplanes which fly thousands of feet in the air, the Aerocon would hover just over the surface of the water using a concept called the ground effect - which creates a bubble of air beneath the craft. It is similar to a hovercraft - but allows the vehicles to travel much faster and with much more stability,...
    Share this: New York will ban people from carrying firearms into many places of business unless the owners put up a sign saying guns are welcome, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday, describing a deal with state legislative leaders that is being finalized. Hochul said lawmakers have agreed on the broad strokes of a gun control bill that the Democratic-led Legislature is poised to pass Thursday. The legislation — hurriedly written after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the state’s handgun licensing law — will include provisions that make it harder to apply for a permit to carry a gun outside the home and create more rules around firearm storage in homes and vehicles.
    When it comes to wine, the French might be on to something.  Drinkers of beer and spirits have high levels of harmful fat linked with heart disease — but wine lovers seem to be protected against it, a study suggests. Red wine was actually linked to lower levels of visceral fat, which develops around the organs and can cause a range of health issues. It is different to the traditional abdominal fat, often dubbed a 'beer belly'. While there was seemingly no protective effect, white wine drinkers were spared from the build-up of fat seen with other types of alcohol. White wine was also found to increase bone density when drank in moderation —  which is crucial to avoid broken bones as we age. The study looked at nearly 2,000 Britons aged 40 to 79 years, using surveys, scans and physical exams.  A study of nearly 2,000 middle-aged and elderly Britons found those who mainly drink beer and spirits have higher levels of visceral fat, which is wrapped around the organs and linked with cardiovascular disease Instead of looking at weight...
    China could use high-speed 'doomsday trains' to transport and even launch nuclear missiles, a new report suggested. In a government-funded study published yesterday, engineers looked at the logistics of moving Beijing's elite DF-41 nuclear-capable missiles onto the rail network. The mega-missiles weigh 80 tonnes each and can carry nuclear warheads up to 9,300 miles from the launchpad. DF-41 is said to boast the longest range of any nuclear-capable ballistic missile in the world Beijing commissioned a new study into the logistics of carrying its elite weapons on trains= China is said to have tested DF-41s from trains in 2015, but these reports remain unconfirmed. The elite weapons, first revealed in 2019, are said to be the longest-range nuclear missiles on the planet.  Carrying them on trains would improve 'concealment', the engineers said - and, if necessary, make launches more efficient. As well as a quick and well-protected means of transport for China's missiles, the report continued, the shockwaves caused by a launch would be better absorbed by high-speed rail infrastructure. Researchers wrote in the Journal of Southwest Jiaotong University: 'Compared with heavy-haul...

    A BIZARRE design for a Moon buggy that looks like a large baby stroller has been revealed by a startup company. The lunar rover prototype has been designed by aerospace company Venturi Astrolab, which plans to make a fleet of them over the next few years. 3The Moon buggy was recently tested in the Californian desert 3The Moon buggy could be a speedy way for astronauts to get aroundCredit: Venturi Astrolab The aim is to help Nasa astronauts and other Moon dwellers get around efficiently when they're on the lunar surface.

    As some of Doctor Who's most formidable enemies, you would expect the Cybermen to try to turn humans into an android army – not help out in care homes and hospitals. But luckily these gentle robots resemble the TV villains in looks alone, having been created to fill shortages in sectors suffering from understaffing. The high-tech invention, Beomni 1.0, is set to be unveiled for the first time in public at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. It is so nimble it can pick up a pinch of salt, but is strong enough to lift up to 30kg (4st 10lb). While at first it is controlled remotely by humans, its AI brain will ultimately learn how to carry out tasks independently. Beomni has already been tested at a hospice in Colorado – where over three days it took temperatures, looked into mouths with a tongue depressor, and even danced with patients to cheer them up. Are friends electric? Robot has been tested helping in a hospice The robot has hands with opposable thumbs that can perform...
    Sen. John Kennedy , a Louisiana Republican, said the Biden administration seeks to "tax unrealized gains on inherited property" on its divine mission to appease the nation's "wokers." He used the hypothetical situation of a young widow trying to support three children by attempting to buy a $150,000 home to elucidate his argument. "This is what happens when you have a president and a treasury secretary who are on a mission from God to please pink-haired wokers who carry around Ziploc bags of kale," Kennedy said Thursday while speaking with Tucker Carlson. "This is what happens when you have a president and a secretary who want to tax, spend, and regulate America into neo-socialism." GRETA THUNBERG CHASTISES GLOBAL LEADERS OVER CLIMATE INACTION By the time the mother died, her house, her only asset, would be worth about $1.75 million as a result of inflation, he said. "She leaves her home to her kids," Kennedy said. "Under current law, her kids would not have to pay any income tax on that home if they didn't...
    Sen. John Neely Kennedy (R-LA) joined Tucker Carlson on Thursday to criticize President Joe Biden and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for supporting changing stepped-up basis, a tax policy that limits the financial burden of an inheritance for assets that have appreciated over time. Biden’s proposal includes an exemption of $1 million for individuals and $2 million for married couples — significantly higher than the $500,000 exemption for couples that former President Barack Obama proposed in 2015. The proposal also offers capital gains tax exemptions to inherited family-owned businesses and farms, so long as the heirs continue to run it. Yellen explicitly said she supports eliminating stepped-up basis during a Senate hearing on Tuesday. “I do support eliminating stepped-up basis,” she said. “The reason is that a very large share of the income of wealthy individuals is simply never taxed. Individuals hold on to these assets during their lifetime. That income is never taxed.” After playing a clip from the hearing, Carlson went on to say that for average people unrealized capital gains mean real estate. “Let’s suppose you have a...
    Students in an Idaho school district have been carrying their books in shopping carts, coolers, and even popcorn machines after backpacks were banned in response to a gun threat last week.  The Jefferson County school district announced on September 23 that students will no longer be allowed to bring backpacks to school or carry them around hallways after a 13-year-old at Rigby Middle School was discovered to have brought a gun inside her backpack that day. The new rule hasn't been taken well by students, who have mocked it by finding creative and ridiculous way to tote around their belongings, carrying books inside everything from wagons to an aquarium.

And Bullingham said: “We would love Gareth to carry on beyond this contract. “We’ll get into that formal conversation after this tournament. “But if you ask me now, I’d say ‘Yes, we’d like him to carry on’. “Gareth has done a brilliant job, finishing top of the group, with a really solid defence and he’s done really well on and off the pitch, in every aspect. “Our support is unwavering.

    An invasive species of mosquito that can transmit diseases from animals to humans has been found in Florida. The species of mosquito, known as Aedes scapularis, was known to be in Central and South America. It has also been recorded on several Caribbean islands. According to a new study from the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, however, the mosquito species has been found in southern Florida. It was discovered near Everglades National Park in 2019, home to the largest tropical wilderness in the United States.  Pictured: The Aedes scapularis mosquito, which is quickly establishing itself in Florida The top map shows where the growth of the species is sustainable (the most sustainable areas are in red), the bottom map shows the standard deviation for the model's predictions A 2020 follow-up study in the Journal of Medical Entomology revealed sightings of the mosquito in Miami-Dade County and Broward County, both in Florida.   Models from the most recent study show it will likely begin to spread north and move around the region, making its way to habitats suitable for its development.

    Legendary Dallas Cowboys former head coach Jimmy Johnson has no doubt that Dak Prescott is a "great leader" but he doesn’t believe he can take the Cowboys all the way on his own.  The Hall of Fame coach spoke about Prescott’s new contract during an appearance on Fox Sports' "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" show on Tuesday.  DOLPHINS GOING AFTER TEXANS’ DESHAUN WATSON, WON’T DRAFT QUARTERBACK, NFL ANALYST SAYS "I think he’s a great leader for the team. I think the team really rallies around him. So he is a positive influence there. Before the injury, he could make plays with his legs. He could run the football and he fit into their system." Johnson continued: "He has had problems at times being accurate. But with that receiving corps, he gets people open. I like Dak. I think he can win you a championship if he has great players around him. I don’t think Dak can carry a football team if he doesn’t have great players around him."

    A pair of teenage boys from Fort Wayne, Indiana are being praised for always carrying a tampon in case one of their female friends needs one.  Blogger Tara Ahrens said that when she first talked to her sons about how 'traumatizing' a bleed-through can be for a menstruating woman or a girl, her sons mostly remained quiet — but it wasn't long before they took it upon themselves to carry supplies to help their female classmates. Now Micah, 16, and Elijah, 17, always keep tampons in their lockers in case of emergency, and their thoughtfulness is being applauded on social media.

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson taunted his rivals in CNN on Friday night as he ripped into their alleged attempts to take the network off the air by contacting six cable carriers about discontinuing service. ‘With enemies like this, Fox News will be around for a long, long time,’ Carlson blasted at the end of a long monologue in which he tore into CNN host Brianna Keilar and branded CNN’s president Jeff Zucker ‘the dwarf king’. Carlson also launched himself into an extended skit about Zucker in which he cast him as Mini-Me and correspondent Brian Stelter as Dr. Evil. The Fox host voiced his anger after a segment from Keilar earlier on Friday in which she criticized Carlson for not referring to Wednesday’s Capitol riots as an insurrection. Keilar had also ripped into Carlson on her own Twitter account branding him ‘propagandist. A liar. A parasite’ for his coverage of the riots and Trump’s presidency in general.  Scroll down for video Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, pictured, claimed during his Friday night show that CNN is attempting to take the network...

    Hollywood executives defended the continued operation of film crews during the COVID-19 pandemic while other Los Angeles-area businesses like bars and restaurants need to shut down. The issue came to the fore this past weekend when a restaurant owner from Sherman Oaks blasted Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Gavin Newsom for shutting down her outdoor eatery while allowing a film crew to set up a large tent and dining area just a few feet away.

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – People looking to get a license to carry waited in a line that wrapped around the Allegheny County Courthouse Friday. “The wait time for License to Carry is rather long today,” the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook. Online appointment slots for conceal to carry permits are booked into March of 2021 in Allegheny County. Amid the high demand, Sheriff William Mullen recently decided to open up permits for owners without appointments. “We had just recently purchased guns for shooting at a range, and we wanted to get the permit with the election and everything going on next Tuesday and some concerns related to Second Amendment rights,” Steven Stam of the North Side told KDKA last week. “We wanted to come down and try to do that today.” The Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office said in October that they would welcome walk-in applicants as a “trial.” Stay up to date with the KDKA app, which you can download here.
    A museum in Japan dedicated to the famed Iga clan of ninja was raided by thieves on Monday, who snuck in and stole more than 1 million yen ($9,400) from a heavy safe, before vanishing undetected, according to multiple reports. Employees at the Iga-ryu Ninja Museum, located in the central prefecture of Mie, called authorities after the building’s alarm sounded around 1:30 am local time, but not before the thieves already made their getaway. In a showcase of ninja-like stealth, the bandits are said to have forced open an office door with a crowbar, removed the safe and exited the museum in a span of just a few minutes, local media reported, according to the Guardian. Officers arrived to find the 330lb safe missing, which contained the admission fees for around 1,100 people collected over the last weekend, the museum said. Police believed the suspects waited until museum staff left at 5:30 pm before conducting the heist. The popular tourist attraction has visuals and displays that allow visitors to learn about the weaponry and techniques employed by ninja,...
    Madison Summers August 18, 2020 0 Comments Several prominent figures made an appearance during the start of the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and among those was the brother of George Floyd. Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, became a well-known name across the country following his death. A video went viral of Floyd with his neck knelt on by a police officer’s knee for almost 9 minutes. Floyd could be heard saying he could not breathe. This, among several other deaths of Black Americans, sparked anger across the U.S. as people protested police brutality and racial inequality. And, during Monday night’s convention, Floyd’s brother Philonise Floyd delivered remarks, saying, “George had a giving spirit, a spirit that has shown up on streets around our nation and around the world.” “George should be alive today,” he added. He then said, “Breonna Taylor should be alive today. Ahmaud Arbery should be alive today. Eric Garner should be alive today. Stephon Clark, Atatiana Jefferson, Sandra Bland — they should all be alive today.” “So it’s up to us to carry on the...

    Neanderthals went extinct around 40,000 years ago but have a reputation as being hulking, brutish beings who were tough and fearless.  But a new study has found this belief to be at least partly incorrect, as Neanderthals likely had a pain threshold lower than the majority of modern-day humans.  Genetic analysis found almost all Neanderthals had a gene which made them more sensitive to pain. Prehistoric trysts between humans and Neanderthals saw this variant passed into our gene pool and today one in 250 people possess this painful mutation.  Scroll down for video  Neanderthals went extinct around 40,000 years ago but have a reputation as being hulking, brutish beings who were tough and fearless. But a study has found they likely had a pain threshold lower than modern humans (file) The mutated gene affects a 'gatekeeper' protein, known as an ion channel, that initiates pangs, twinges and throbs and amplifies feelings of pain by seven per cent.
