  • 11 British words that make Americans think of something totally different

    Dummy When Brits talk about using a dummy to comfort their baby, Americans must imagine all sorts of unnerving scenes. Biscuit If Americans dunk biscuits in their tea, all they get is savoury bread floating around in their mug. It's not quite the same is it? A nice chat, a cup of tea and... a wet scone.  Jumper When Brits keep going on about knitwear, Americans are imagining a long-legged basket baller being able to leap to impressive heights. Yeah, that's why your friends were so reluctant to see that action film Jumper with Hayden Christensen. It was probably very good but who wants to see a whole movie about warm clothing?

  • Putin, citing national security, signs Turkey sanctions decree

    By Andrew Osborn and Polina Devitt MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin signed a decree imposing a raft of punitive economic sanctions against Turkey on Saturday, underlining the depth of the Kremlin's anger towards Ankara four days after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane. The decree, which entered into force immediately, said charter flights from Russia to Turkey would be banned, that tour firms would be told not to sell any holidays there, and that unspecified Turkish imports would be outlawed, and Turkish firms and nationals have their economic activities halted or curbed. The gauntlet thrown down to Russia is unprecedented.

    A US military official has characterised Russia's bombing campaign in Syria as "reckless and irresponsible", as the war of words over the downing of a Russian jet by Turkey continues. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has claimed to have documented 403 civilian deaths -- including 69 women and 97 children -- from Russian air strikes since September. Colonel Steve Warren, a spokesman for the US-led coalition in Baghdad, said the non-governmental group's estimate was probably "fairly accurate".

  • Report: Apple will kill the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7

    Even though the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus mildly surprised the world by being ever-so-slightly thicker than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple’s apparent obsession with thinness is far from over. A Japanese blog cites a source who says Apple intends to do away with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack for the iPhone 7 and require users to hook up their cans via a Lightning connector or Bluetooth. The move would enable Apple to shave off “more than 1mm” from the thickness of the current iPhone 6S, according to 9to5Mac, citing the Japanese blog Macotakara. This could give Apple an opportunity to boast that the iPhone 7 is the thinnest iPhone ever. Related: Apple’s patent hints at waterproof iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches The 3.5mm headphone jack is essentially the bottleneck to supreme thinness, since it “can hardly be thinner because it is the world standard,” according to Macotakara. Apple once considered replacing the 3.5mm port with a 2.5mm port, according to 9to5Mac. Last year, Apple introduced Lightning headphone specs, though Lightning headphones are still a rarity. “The report claims that Apple will bundle Lightning connector-equipped EarPods with the next iPhone, incorporating a tiny DA (Digital to Analog) converter into the connector,” according to 9to5Mac. If this report is accurate, Apple’s move would open the floodgates for manufacturers of 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapters. It also surfaces questions about charging the iPhone while a headphone is plugged in. Also watch: Apple iPhone 6S Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Please enable Javascript to watch this video

  • Olly Murs on X Factor blunder: I would've chinned Dermot O'Leary if he'd done that to me

    Olly Murs has joked he would’ve “chinned” former X Factor host Dermot O'Leary if he’d made the same mistake as him on last week’s show. The talent show co-presenter made a gaffe live on Sunday night’s results show when he accidentally said wannabe Monica Michael had been sent home, instead of saying the vote had gone to Deadlock. While contestant Monica seemed unfazed by Olly’s error, the TV presenter - who finished runner-up in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009 - wouldn’t have taken it so lightly if then-host Dermot O'Leary had made a similar blunder.

  • Meet the runner who was sexually assaulted mid-race but still won

    She’s run 217 marathons and ultra marathons, and more than 100 miles in 24 hours; she’s completed 20 marathons in 17 days; and she’s an Iron Man. She’s a pretty tough character. However, even she found this latest event difficult to cope with. “I was in floods of tears,” she said. “It was like being in a horror film when you see someone running for their life. I even tried running without my head torch on because I was so terrified they were going to come after me, but I couldn’t see where I was going and I had to switch it back on.” The attack, at a 24-hour race in September, came as a complete shock. “I heard someone coming up behind me,” she said. “I thought it was another runner at first. q

The Omani public, Qaboos's subjects, had not seen him since November the previous year, when he announced that his treatment had been progressing well.
