  • 'I've no choice' Frank Bruno announces boxing return in 'worrying' This Morning interview

    EXPRESS NEWSPAPERS • ITV The 54-year-old appeared on the ITV show to talk about his depression and battle with bipolar disorder, but viewers seemed more interested in the fact that he was making a comeback in sport. When he made the big reveal halfway through his interview, host Phillip Schofield asked him: "Do you think that's a good idea?" "I've got no choice," the father-of-four replied. "I can't sit down and let these so called promoters say that their guys beat me in two rounds. "I train every day, its my job, its my profession," he added. Watching Frank Bruno on This Morning.

  • Rapist Tube driver jailed more than 20 years after he attacked two women

    He left DNA evidence behind at both crime scenes but was only traced when he was arrested in June 2015 and his DNA came up as a match to the 1994 crimes. Chandler was sentenced to 13 years in jail at Harrow Crown Court on Friday, police said. His first victim was attacked and raped as she walked through an underpass of the A41 at Watford Way in Mill Hill and the second was attacked on Hartley Avenue, also in Mill Hill. A scientific link between the cases was made in 1994, but no suspect was identified and when it was investigated as a cold case in 2005, no new leads appeared. It was only when Chandler was arrested on June 9 2015, for a different offence, that his DNA was taken and loaded on to

  • This tent has a shocking secret that could keep you alive in a storm

    Thunderstorms are beautiful when you are inside a sheltered area, but the experience can be terrifying when you are outside, especially if you are in an open area. To help outdoor enthusiasts find safety during a sudden storm, industrial design student Kama Jania from Finland’s Aalto University has created a new line of lightning-proof tents that were featured recently in Designboom. The new “Bolt” tent looks like any other tent you would see on the trail or at a campsite, but it has an internal design that separates it from your typical store-bought shelter. The aluminum poles can withstand up to 200 kiloamperes and are intended to route a direct lightning hit away from the people seeking refuge in the tent. An added waterproof groundsheet protects the occupant from ground-based step voltages, which occurs when the current from a lightning bolt radiates through the ground following a strike. Related: Beat the freeze with these gadgets and gear for winter camping Working with Professor Michał Kracik Ph.D. and physicists Konrad Sobolewski and Aleksander Bogucki, Jania tested the Bolt tents using both high voltage and high current generators. In the high-voltage tests, the tent was subjected to discharges produced by an impulse voltage generator. A simulated tourist head was placed inside the tent to measure the voltage that reached the occupant. While the high-voltage test measured occupant exposure, the current generator test was used to determine the tent’s durability. In these tests, a series of electrical discharges with various peak current values were aimed at the tent’s poles. The tents passed the testing phase with only minor scorching on the poles and some melting observed on the tent stakes due to the high temperatures from the simulated lightning strikes. As conceptualized, the Bolt has three different designs based on the size of the shelter needed for hiking or camping. The largest tent is the Bolt Half (1.2 kg/2.65 lb), a half-tent suitable for multi-day trips in areas with ledges or ridges. The Bolt One is a single-person tent that is roomy enough for overnight camping while the Bolt Air is an ultra lightweight pneumatic shelter for day trips where an overnight stay is not expected. Each tent is made of a waterproof and breathable fabric with a frame that is easy to setup. Like most tents, the outer skin uses clips to attach to an aluminum pole frame that almost self-assembles due to its unique pole locking mechanism. An added window and a spacious entrance add a bit of comfort the portable abodes. Related: Cozy up next to your neighbor with the pod tent Unfortunately, Jania has no plans to manufacture the lightning-proof tents and instead is looking for a commercial partner to carry on the idea. The innovative grad student also is working on other outdoor-related projects, including a water collector that gathers water from different atmospheric heights.
