    Earth is not yet staring down a doomsday asteroid scenario like the one in Armageddon, but scientists are taking steps to ensure the planet is prepared. On Monday, NASA will conduct an end-of-the-world prevention experiment by flying a spacecraft named DART head-on into an asteroid at a breathtaking 14,000 mph to bump the giant space rock out of its current trajectory in a bid to see if such a strategy can safeguard humans from meeting the same fate as the dinosaurs. WEBB TELESCOPE CAPTURES PHOTOS OF NEPTUNE RINGS WITH NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN CLARITY “This really is about asteroid deflection, not disruption,” Nancy Chabot, a planetary scientist involved in the effort, said, per the Associated Press. “This isn’t going to blow up the asteroid. It isn’t going to put it into lots of pieces.” The asteroid getting slammed by DART is Dimorphos, which is barreling through space roughly 7 million miles away from Earth. Dimorphos presents no Armageddon-style threat to Earth, and scientists are confident that altering its trajectory won't set it on a collision course with the planet....

    Ukrainian officials say 447 bodies have been exhumed from a forest in the recently recaptured northeastern city of Izium, ending a grim recovery operation at a mass grave site discovered after Russian forces withdrew in the face of a counteroffensive. Authorities and teams of investigators have been working in the sandy soil of the pine forest for a week. It was not clear how those who were buried died, but investigators say the discoveries recalled the broad evidence of atrocities by Russian soldiers in towns such as Bucha, near Kyiv, the capital. The head of the National Police, Ihor Klymenko, said Friday that the exhumation works were complete and that 425 of the bodies recovered were civilians — including five children — while 22 were Ukrainian service members. “There are many bodies with traces of torture,” he wrote in a Facebook post, hinting at the challenging work still at hand. “Police forensic experts face a difficult task: to identify the body of each killed person. Relatives should bury them in a human way.” Russian forces took control of Izium in...

    An Arctic wolf has been cloned for the first time by a Beijing-based gene firm that took a donor cell from a wild female Arctic wolf and combined it with an embryo that was grown inside a beagle, which shares genetic ancestry with ancient wolves to ensure the process was successful. The pup, named Maya, was born in June but Singogen Biotechnology waited to announce her birth until she was 100 days old with the hopes the clone would be in good health, and it is. Arctic wolves are not endangered like other breeds, but Singogen hopes to use this process to save other species that are at risk of extinction. Although this is a scientific breakthrough, the cloning of animals is met with controversy as activists say the animals involved suffer in surgeries necessary to obtain donor cells and transfer embryos. Maya was born in June, but the company waited 100 days to show her to the world to ensure she was healthy RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Forget being right or left-handed! Octopuses...

    The prospect of a nuclear strike on Britain has never seemed more real, with Vladimir Putin and his henchmen threatening to obliterate London and other Western capitals in the latest escalation of the Ukraine war. On Sunday, Russian state TV aired threats by Andrey Gurulyov, a member of the State Duma. Taking particular issue with the UK, he called it ‘the root of all evil’ and suggested that it could be turned into a ‘Martian desert’ by Russian nukes. Putin himself warned that ‘this is not a bluff’, seemingly willing to risk precipitating Armageddon with bombs that would set the sky alight with the blaze of a thousand suns. Millions would be incinerated instantly and even for those who escape the initial blast or the ensuing radiation fallout, there would be little hope of survival. As firestorms rage, great clouds of toxic smoke would rise into the atmosphere, blocking the sun’s rays and causing a severe cooling of the planet. This would kill crops and cause a global famine that would last for many years. In a world where emaciated...
    Warren Little, Getty Images Patrick Reed bashed the DP World Tour for how he has been treated since he arrived in France for the French Open. Reed joined the controversial Saudi Arabian backed LIV Golf Tour earlier this year and feels that his treatment this week was a result from that. “It’s a slap in the face not to invite me to the press conference, or not to have me play in the pro-am and all those things,” Reed told the Journal Du Golf Members of LIV Golf have been banned from playing in PGA Tour events, but not the DP World Tour. It is understood by Reed that there are certain things that are out of his hands. “At the end of the day, it’s just my golf that I have control over,” Reed added. I’m here to support the Tour, France and all the people who are here.” Since LIV golfers, like Reed, are not eligible to participate in PGA Tour events, they use the DP World Tour to accumulate points in the world ranking points system.

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz dismissed the New York attorney general’s civil fraud lawsuit against former President Donald Trump Wednesday as “political.” The Harvard Law School professor emeritus also argued those allegedly defrauded were large banks who, if they feel defrauded, can go after Trump on their own. New York AG Letitia James announced a civil suit against the former president and three of his adult children Wednesday morning. James accused the family and others in the Trump organization of inflating the values of the business’s assets dating back years in order to secure favorable loan terms. The state of New York wants to collect $250 million and also ban the former president, as well as Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump from practicing business in their home state. On Newsmax TV’s American Agenda, Dershowitz argued James is fulfilling a campaign promise by going after Trump. He also argued if the lawsuit were legitimate, those who were victims of fraud are capable of suing the Trump family on their own. “The first thing I would do if I were Trump’s...

    Princess Charlene of Monaco made a return to the world stage this week as she attended the Queen's funeral in London - in what was her highest profile appearance to date after a difficult 18 months. Zimbabwean-born Charlene spent some 10 months in South Africa last year, after contracting a serious sinus infection during a solo charity trip. The illness left her hospitalised and delayed her return to Monaco. After returning to the principality last November, the mother-of-two almost immediately left and went to Switzerland to receive treatment for 'exhaustion'. She returned to public duty in May, making the occasional public appearance with her husband Prince Albert and her children Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella by her side.  She posed with Albert for a portrait marking their 11th wedding anniversary, and joined him in taking her children back to school earlier this month.  However she made her biggest return to public duty earlier this week, when she joined her husband at the Queen's historic funeral in London, joining 2,000 other mourners  at Westminster Abbey.

    Jeff Bezos just lost his status as the world’s second-richest person, dropping to No. 3 as Indian business mogul Gautam Adani rapidly climbs the ranks of Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index. Elon Musk, still the No. 1 wealthiest person with $260 billion to his name, may need to watch his back. Adani has taken less than 10 months to reach the No. 2 spot after starting the year in 14th. It’s the first time a person from Asia has ranked so highly on Bloomberg’s list, which has long been dominated by white tech entrepreneurs. Adani’s $146.9 billion fortune, largely tied up in holdings of his sprawling Adani Group conglomerate, still trails well behind Musk’s $260 billion. The group operates a range of businesses including ports and coal that have thrived in recent years. Shares of some Adani companies have jumped more than 1,000% since June 2020 — reflecting investor optimism about the conglomerate’s strength in areas like infrastructure and renewable energy that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has prioritized for development.

The Taupo volcano - which sits below the country's biggest lake - exploded approximately 1800 years ago, firing more than 100 cubic kilometres of material into the air, in what is the world's largest eruption in the last 5000 years. GeoNet, who are responsible for the volcano alert system, said for the first time ever they have raised the Taupo volcano alert to level 1.  The alert system has six escalating levels of unrest, with zero being the lowest threat.

Around 90 heads of state and government had initially confirmed attendance at the summit ahead of the UN General Assembly’s annual high-level week.

    Getty Eagles CB Darius Slay put on a clinic against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football. Darius Slay was limping around with 7:15 showing in the fourth quarter when he waved off Zech McPhearson. There was no way the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback was coming out in a crucial situation. A few seconds later, Slay made a leaping interception in the end zone to give the ball back to his offense. It was Slay’s second pick and slammed the door shut on any comeback attempt by Minnesota. He read Kirk Cousins’ eyes to perfection and finished Justin Jefferson’s route for him. He never considered taking a seat on the bench with the game hanging in the balance. Slay knew what he had to do. And the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Vikings 24-7. “I had to wave him off, you know, I’m a tough dude,” Slay told reporters. “I’m not going to put him in that position right now. It was a clutch situation, the offense just turned the ball over, only the great players rise in that...

It was expected that up to 100 heads of government or state would attend the funeral, dwarfing the estimated fifty who attended Nelson Mandela’s memorial. It is believed to be the biggest gathering of world leaders in history....

    As Roger Federer prepares for his final ever event at the Laver Cup next weekend, tennis is on standby - and soon the entire sporting world will follow. The Swiss legend has been the face of tennis for almost two decades - despite sharing the spotlight with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in recent times - and his absence from the circuit will no doubt be felt in years to come. When the 20-time Grand Slam champion announced he was bowing out on Thursday, it transcended tennis. His retirement was felt by millions, inside and outside the world of sport.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin chairs a meeting with members of the Security Council via a video conference call in Moscow, Russia, September 9, 2022. Gavriil Grigorov | Sputnik | Reuters The world is entering the moment of maximum danger — and at the same time of maximum opportunity — in Russian President Vladimir Putin's war in Ukraine, now in its seventh month. It is the moment of maximum danger because Putin is so dramatically failing in the pursuit of his delusional obsession — which prompted him to launch a major invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24 — that he could rebuild some modern notion of the Russian empire with Kyiv as its centerpiece and as his legacy. As Ukrainian courage and resilience transform his hubris into humiliation, the danger is rising that he could turn to weapons of mass destruction, including the use of tactical nuclear weapons, to coerce Ukraine and confound its allies at a time when Putin's influence is eroding and he is running out of options. This presents a moment of maximum opportunity for world leaders at the...
    THE QUEEN was never happier than when at the racecourse. During her 70 year reign, the sport was her one true love away from the serious stuff. 4The Queen with Frankie Dettori, in her famous silks, at Newbury RacecourseCredit: Getty At any spare moment, she would pore over the form and study the bloodlines of her horses. Nothing got past her on or off the track. Whether Her Majesty was with a trainer, fellow breeder or jockey, she was always at ease around those in the sport. On a rare occasion, even just slightly, she could let her hair down. She was known to crack a joke and even mimick some trainers’ accents when she would call them.

    WE live in the smartphone age dominated by technology. Nearly everything in our lives can be ordered instantly online. 2These scenes was a world away from the shrill hysteria of the social media ageCredit: PA That is one of the reasons why the scenes from the Lying-in-State of the Queen inside Westminster Hall have been so astonishingly moving. It is impossible to think of another event of such importance where the ban on mobile phones would be so exquisitely observed. It has been said many times in recent days that Queen Elizabeth was of a different age to the world we now inhabit. Never has this been displayed more eloquently than in the scenes from Parliament.

    The Queen may have been a notoriously private person  - but Her Majesty's life was often depicted in some of the world's most famous TV series and films. The monarch, who passed away aged 96 last week at Balmoral, influenced pop culture all over the world, and was paid homage to by Hollywood and even America's most beloved cartoon family The Simpsons. The Queen was also depicted in the popular Netflix drama series The Crown; actors Claire Foy, Olivia Colman and Imelda Staunton have all portrayed the monarch during different stages of her life for the TV show.  Meanwhile Hollywood royalty Helen Mirren depicted the monarch in the 2006 film The Queen, for which she won an Academy Award and a BAFTA. Elsewhere, depictions were more light-hearted - from an appearance in The Minions movie to a regular slot on the British comedy show Spitting Image. Having reigned for 70 years, the Queen's standing as a cultural icon can't be understated. Here FEMAIL takes a look at the films, TV series and cartoons that the Queen has appeared in as a beloved character... Claire...
    President Joe Biden warned Vladmir Putin to avoid using nuclear weapons as his forces are beaten back in Ukraine or face 'consequences.' In a preview for this Sunday's 60 Minutes, Scott Pelley asked the president what words he would have for his Russian counterpart if he is considering using chemical or tactical nuclear weapons in the Ukraine.  Biden responded: 'Don't. Don't. Don't. You will change the face of war unlike anything since World War II.' When Pelley pushed the president for America's response should Putin cross the line, Biden declined to comment on a specific plan, only saying that the US would act if nuclear weapons are put into play.  'It'll be consequential,' Biden said. '[Russia] will become more of a pariah in the world than they ever have been.  'And depending on the extent of what they do will determine what response would occur.'  President Joe Biden warned Vladimir Putin that Russia would face 'consequences' if they decided to use nuclear or chemical weapons in Ukraine The warning came as Russia suffered yet another defeat by Ukrainian forces backed...

    BEFORE Kylie Jenner was named as one of the youngest billionaires, this Norwegian heiress once wore the crown and did a lot of it by saving money.  Alexandra Andresen, 26, is worth an estimated $1.2billion and while 42 percent of her wealth comes from ownership of her family’s investment company, she’s also an expert at managing her money. 4Alexandra Andresen, 26, has an estimated net worth of $1.2billion, making her one of the youngest billionaires in the worldCredit: Instagram/ alexandraandresen 4However, Kylie Jenner's makeup empire took off, bringing Alexandria down the listCredit: Getty “I save when I get my weekly allowance, and I save the cash prizes I win in competitions or if I get money as a gift for my birthday, said Alexandra, an equestrian champion. “It means I can buy myself things I really want, like a bag or a pair of shoes, without having to ask mum or dad for money.” She was named by Forces as “the youngest billionaire in the world” in 2016, before Kylie Jenner’s makeup empire took the title.

    The world's oldest heart has been discovered in a 380-million-year-old 'beautifully preserved' fossil of an ancient jawed fish. Researchers from Curtin University found the heart alongside a separate fossilised stomach, intestine and liver, with the position of the organs similar to modern shark anatomy. The team hopes the discovery will help to shed light on the evolution of the human body. 'Evolution is often thought of as a series of small steps, but these ancient fossils suggest there was a larger leap between jawless and jawed vertebrates,' said Professor Kate Trinajstic, who led the study. 'These fish literally have their hearts in their mouths and under their gills - just like sharks today.' The world's oldest heart has been discovered in a 380-million-year-old 'beautifully preserved' fossil of an ancient jawed fish Do all animals have hearts? While most animals have one heart, some have multiple hearts, and others have none at all.  Octopuses and squids have three hearts. Two hearts pump blood to the gills to take up oxygen, and the other pumps blood around the body.  Worms are also unusual,...

    Aaron Rodgers has never been one to accept accountability for failure, and it continued to manifest itself in his latest radio appearance.  Honestly speaking, is Aaron Rodgers ever going to accept accountability, or do we live in a world where he can do no wrong? In his latest appearance on the Pat McAfee show, Rodgers talked about the loss to Minnesota in Week 1 and made comments that come across as throwing everyone except himself under the bus. "Drops are gonna happen.. its the mental mistakes that were gonna have to clean up" [email protected]#PMSLive #GoPackGo pic.twitter.com/4ef8r398t2 — Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) September 13, 2022 Okay, drops happen. Sure, it’s the first game of the season. But what about Rodgers’ play? He didn’t exactly drop jaws, so to speak. Rodgers completed 22/34 for 195 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception. It’s also important to note that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson nearly had as many receiving yards as Rodgers’ passing yards, 184 to 195. How can he explain that without critiquing himself?Aaron Rodgers will never accept accountability for his poor...
