  • Stephen Hawking warned us about contacting aliens, but this astronomer says it's 'too late'

    In 2010, physicist Stephen Hawking voiced concern about the possibility that we might contact extraterrestrial life by transmitting signals into space. However, SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak told us that it's too late to consider whether we should send such transmissions, because we've already been doing it for decades.Follow BI Video: On Twitter

  • Young Prince George shuns high-five, low-five from Canada's Trudeau

    Blame it on jet lag or maybe a precocious knowledge that his great-grandmother is Canada's head of state but Britain's 3-year-old Prince George just wasn't going to be charmed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Landing in Canada on Saturday on a weeklong official visit with parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, George, holding his father's hand, ignored Trudeau when he squatted down to the toddler's level to offer a high-five variation, the low-five. Trudeau then switched his palm for a high-five and subsequently offered a handshake, both of which were seemingly rebuffed, creating an awkward moment on the airport tarmac in the western province of British Columbia.

  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).

  • Commuters accused of not moving from disabled woman's seat say they did nothing wrong

    Cat Lee/Guzelian Cat Lee said she found the men sitting in the seats she had booked for the 6.03pm train on Tuesday evening from London's King's Cross to Skipton in North Yorkshire.  The 43-year-old claimed that the men refused to move from her seats even when she explained she was disabled. Mrs Lee posted a picture of the pair on Facebook that blasted them for "not budging". One of the men shamed in the post has since come forward saying the reserved seat was no longer valid, that Mrs Lee did not claim to be disabled or appear distressed or look like she was unable to stand.  I'm sure their wives and mothers would be proud of them Cat Lee He said there was an announcement on the train stating

  • EastEnders: Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell to be killed off

    Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell leaving EastEnders is going to be the end of an era for the BBC One soap, especially now that we have learned that it’s going to be a permanent departure. Actresses Rita Simons (Roxy) and Sam Womack (Ronnie) are said to be upset by the news that the Mitchell sisters are being bumped off as they’d hoped to have the option to return at some stage in the future. The exit comes under new producer Sean O’Connor’s ruling, with Sean already killing off much-loved character Paul Coker as well as announcing the departures of other favourites, including Babe Carter, Masood Ahmed, Lee Carter, Claudette Hubbard, Buster, Briggs, Pam and Les Coker and Kyle Slater.

  • Kid has the perfect response when asked why he brought a dead squirrel to school

    You can always count on kids doing some seriously weird stuff. Layde Hobson was excited to receive a positive phone call from her son's principal earlier this week. Except the reason she was so happy is something that won't make many parents very proud.  The principal told Hobson that her son Brylan "made her day" because he somehow managed to bring a dead squirrel to school.  SEE ALSO: Joyful kid's carefree dance moves will give you life Like any person who can laugh at how ridiculous kids can be, the principal found the situation pretty hilarious.

  • So much for Jeremy Corbyn's call for Labour to wipe the slate clean

    Instead of starting afresh and burying their differences, the Labour leaders' supporters and his opponents are continuing to clash with the same ferocity. The most ugly clash came between John McDonnell and Yvette Cooper over the shadow chancellor's controversial call before the last election for the former Tory MP Esther McVey to be "lynched". In a TV clash with Ms Cooper, Mr McDonnell defended his comments about Ms McVey, which included telling MPs in the Commons in March last year that the then employment minister was a "stain on humanity".
