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. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch said the collision involved a helicopter and aircraft, both of which had taken off from Wycombe Air Park, 23 miles away near High Wycombe. 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

Ohio’s capital city has launched a defense fund for illegal immigrants facing deportation and thousands of taxpayer dollars will go to the local chapter of a terrorist front group that promotes itself as a Muslim civil rights organization. The pot of cash is known as Columbus Families Together Fund and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, will be among the recipients. CAIR was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad, and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine. In 2008 CAIR was a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group Holy Land Foun

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...

The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Kansai in Osaka Prefecture has succeeded in making hens lay eggs that contain a pharmaceutical agent that can be used to treat such diseases as cancer and hepatitis, it has been learned. The procedure uses genome editing technology to produce interferon beta, a type of protein related to the immune system, at a relatively low cost. As early as next year, a joint research company plans to sell the drug as a research reagent at a price about half that of the conventional product. Eventually, they hope to lower the price to less than 10 percent of the current level. Interferon beta is used in the treatment of malignant skin cancer and hepatitis, as well as for virus research.
