At least three people were feared dead after a mid-air collision between a helicopter and light aircraft flying from an airfield where air traffic control had been shut due to “staff shortages”. Wreckage from the aircraft tumbled from the sky and landed just over a mile from the former home of the Rothschild banking family at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, yesterday lunchtime. Residents reported hearing a “loud bang” and a plume of smoke could be seen above trees.

It is understood the helicopter was carrying two people, while only the pilot was on board the light aircraft, reported to be a two-seat Cessna

In 2017, two of the largest epidemics of cryptographers have already been recorded - we are talking about the notoriously sensational WannaCry and ExPetr (also Petya and NotPetya at the same time) - and now it looks like the third one is starting. This time the cryptographer is called Bad Rabbit - at least this name is written on the page in the darknet, on which its creators send for clarifying the details. So far, several Russian media have been affected by this encryptor, including Interfax and Fontanka . Also about the hacker attack - possibly connected with the same Bad Rabbit, - the airport of Odessa informs.

A Clark County judge granted a temporary restraining order Thursday to prevent MGM Resorts International from destroying any evidence related to the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest music festival. Lawyers for a California woman who was shot and critically wounded during the Oct. 1 concert filed a lawsuit last week, asking for a judge to stop MGM from destroying video surveillance or any information the casino operator may have related to gunman Stephen Paddock, who authorities have said frequented gambling establishments and fired on the festival crowd from a suite at Mandalay Bay. The order was sought by attorneys who represent Rachel Sheppard, a California woman who survived the attack, despite being shot in the chest three times. “The shooter was in that hotel for six days,” says

Facial detection technology in the new Piccadilly Circus lights is "incredibly intrusive", according to privacy campaigners. The revamped screen in central London will be turned on later in October in a space where 100 million people pass each month. Cameras hidden in the screen will detect people's faces, figuring out their age, gender and mood, and use that to tailor brand messages. According to Ocean Outlook, the company that provides the screen's technology, the system can detect people's age and gender with 90% accuracy. The system can identify the makes of vehicles and will also feature Wi-Fi to let people interact with the screen, but also potentially to track mobile devices. Privacy campaigners say signs should be put up in Piccadilly Circus to inform the publi...

Campos talked with police but hasn't spoken publicly about the Oct. 1 massacre. Paddock opened fire from a Mandalay Bay resort suite, kill...

A Detroit mother was sentenced to seven days in jail for refusing to vaccinate her son will appear in court on Wednesday morning. Rebecca Bredow had a hearing in Pontiac Wednesday to decide if she will go to jail for refusing to vaccinate her son. She was sentenced for contempt of court. The mother of two had one week to get her son vaccinated, and refused to comply with court orders and agreements dating back to November 2016 saying she would vaccinate the boy. Bredow's ex-husband wants their son vaccinated, but she is the primary caregiver for their son. Now, he will have temporary custody to take the child to get vaccinated while she goes to jail. "I would rather sit behind bars standing up for what I believe in, than giving in to something I strongly don't believe in," Bred
