  • Fastest depreciating cars: top 10 worst motoring money pits

    We’ve all heard the sob stories. A buyer walks into a showroom, pays mega-bucks for a new model with all the bells and whistles, then can’t believe how little the dealer wants to buy it back for at trade-in time… ouch! Every new car loses money of course, and most do it faster than their owners would probably like. But some cars lose money faster than others, and some are absolute stinkers when it comes to holding their value on the used car market. We’ll refer to them as depreciation disasters. To help you avoid these mobile money-pits we’ve combed the data from used car valuation experts at CAP to create a list of possible new car purchases with the biggest sting in the tail. • Car depreciation:

  • Growing support for an OPEN FIRE border policy on illegal refugees in Germany

    The poll was triggered by Petry's comments of a week ago when she incensed the ruling political elite by declaring: "We need efficient controls to prevent so many unregistered asylum-seekers keeping on entering via Austria. "Border police should be able if need be to have recourse to their firearms -- as laid down by law.No policeman wants to fire on a refugee and I don't want that either. But as a last resort there should be recourse to firearms."  But while a considerable number of voters agreed with her gunfire policy, only 13 percent of those quizzed believed that her party should not be spied on by intelligence spooks - something called for by SPD party chief and vice chancellor Sigmar Gabriel. q

  • Decades-Old Star Wars Mystery Finally Solved

    One of the longest-running ‘Star Wars’ mysteries has finally been solved by a doggedly determined fan. Despite being one of the most overanalysed movies of the 20th century, fans have long wondered who played BoShek the cantina patron who sends Obi-Wan and Luke in the direction of Han Solo when they arrive in Mos Eisley looking for a passage to Alderaan. The character with the sideburns and distinctive flight suit had his own action figure, but no-one at LucasFilm archives has ever been able to confirm the identity of the actor who played him, as his name doesn’t appear in the film’s closing credits.

  • North Korean satellite nonfunctional and ‘tumbling in orbit’ following weekend launch

    North Korea is dealing with an international fallout following the country’s weekend launch of a satellite-carrying rocket. The country reportedly launched a rocket and successfully deployed the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite in orbit, reports CNN. According to U.S. Department of Defense officials who were monitoring the launch, the satellite reached its orbit, but is tumbling and nonfunctional. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) launched its Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite on Sunday despite objections internationally that the deployment violates earlier agreements prohibiting missile testing. Officials from concerned countries believe the rocket launches could be a front being used by North Korea to test and develop intercontinental ballistic missile technology. North Korean officials claim the launch was for “peaceful purposes” with officials asserting the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite is an “earth observation satellite” that can be used to monitor agriculture. North Korean celebrated the launch with an official fireworks display in the capital city, Pyongyang. “We hope that the future of our space technology keeps growing and shines like these fireworks in the sky,” said an announcer during the state-sponsored broadcast. Related: Dramatic SpaceX video shows Falcon 9 rocket land, topple over, and explode South Korean officials claim to have found more than 170 pieces of debris thought to be from the North Korean rocket. Unlike previous rocket launches that produced debris suitable for further examination, North Korea is believed to have included a self-destruct feature that exploded the rocket booster to prevent other countries from studying their current technology. The Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite is not the first North Korean satellite to reach orbit and then fail. The nation launched the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 Unit 2 satellite in December of 2012 and reportedly achieved orbit, making North Korea the 10th country capable of deploying satellites using its launch vehicles. Despite North Korea claims that the satellite was deployed and functioning as planned, U.S. officials reported the satellite was “tumbling out of control.” Visual data obtained by Spain, Italy, and the U.K..also suggested the satellite was tumbling as it orbited the Earth. Unlike this most recent launch, fragments of the rocket used to deploy the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 Unit 2 were collected in 2012 and examined by South Korean missile experts. Their examination suggests the North Korean engineers relied on old technology from the 1960s and 1970s for their rocket design.
