  • 'Ghost Of Woman Holding A Baby' Photographed In Empty House Window

    The house in question – in the historic Shropshire town of Wem - is uninhabited and surrounded with scaffolding – raising the question as to just whom or what could be lurking. Natasha Oliver posted the image to Facebook, explaining it dates back five years and was taken after a World Cup game. Wem has a rich history of spooky sightings – most notably when the image of a young girl was captured amid the flames as Wem Town Hall burned to the ground.

  • Humans accidentally created hidden carbon sink in the desert - New Scientist

  • Emmerdale star Anthony Quinlan reveals why helicopter crash scene was more embarrassing than scary

    Emmerdale star Anthony Quinlan has revealed the most memorable part of the soap’s dramatic helicopter crash storyline for him was his trousers splitting open in front of the rest of the cast and crew.

Quite a bit more was revealed than maybe should have been. The crash is caused when Chrissie Sugden (Louise Marwood) sets fire to her husband Robert’s car in a row over his affair, causing a gas canister to explode, just as the helicopter passes overhead.

  • Snake in the Grass! Huge Everglades Python Shows Invasive Issue

    A giant python — about as long as a shipping container — that was captured in Everglades National Park in Florida earlier this month has now been euthanized, authorities say. The accidental finding of this snake shows how easily even huge pythons can remain hidden in Florida's swampy south, experts say. The creature weighed a whopping 133 lbs. (60 kilograms), and at 18-feet, 3-inches (5.6 meters), was almost as long as the largest python ever captured in the state of Florida, which was 18-feet, 8-inches long (5.7 meters).

  • Athletics - 'I'll sue!': Top British athlete confronted over doping claims

    The paper, along with German broadcaster ARD/WDR, has published some astonishing revelations about the widespread extent of doping in athletics after being given access to a database detailing the results of more than 12,000 blood tests from 5,000 athletes. Around 4 per cent of British athletes are alleged to have recorded abnormal scores in blood doping analysis leading up to the eve of London 2012, with the Sunday Times putting the total figure at "a dozen". While the data of Olympic champions such as Mo Farah and Jess Ennis-Hill is normal, one athlete in particular has aroused suspicion with some blood results which, according to the paper, have only a one in a thousand chance of occurring naturally.

Judge Jeremy Lea said social worker Tina Pugh had used phrases including: "imbued with ambivalence", "having many commonalities emanating from their histories", "issues had a significant interplay on (her) ability" and "I asked her to convey a narrative". The judge said he thought he knew what the social worker was saying - but that he doubted whether the woman the report was written about did.

  • How to delete Windows 7, 8 after upgrading to Windows 10

    Now that you've upgraded to Windows 10 and are ready to embrace Microsoft's computing future, you can free up valuable space on your drive for new files. To do this, you can clean up your disk using the Disk Cleanup utility on Windows to remove old files, temporary internet files and empty out that overflying Recycle Bin. One of the biggest files that you can remove is your previous Windows installation. Bear in mind that doing this means that you'll forever say "I do" to Cortana, for better or for worse, and that there is no going back to the past.
