  • Senior British Pilot 'Solves' Mystery Of MH370 And Pinpoints Where Boeing 777 Came To Rest

    A senior British pilot claims he may have solved the mystery of what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Boeing 777 captain Simon Hardy also believes he knows where the doomed aircraft came to rest, following a six month examination of flight data. Using a unique mathematical technique, Hardy pinpoints the location of the aircraft to 100 nautical miles away from where the Australian Transport Safety Board (ATSB) is currently carrying out it search, the Sunday Times reports. Hardy also told the newspaper he believes pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah performed a final “emotional” fly-past of Penang island, before landing the plane on water, where it sank intact.

  • How the Brits misunderstand America

    It's something that perpetually intrigues because the longer I live in America, the more different I think our two nations are and the more I feel Brits misunderstand the US, and vice versa. Interestingly, the hardest things to reconcile seem to be America's role in the world, what it should and should not be, and America's relationship with guns. One American businessman suggested he felt he was repeatedly tripped up by the continuing resentment of the invasion of Iraq which still sours British perceptions of America. What's less clear to Brits is what they want from America today.

  • 25 Mind-Blowing Facts About Vladimir Putin

    Vladimir Putin has been top dog in the Russian Federation since the turn of the millennium, despite the fact that for four of those years he was not even the President. Having assumed office as Acting President on December 31, 1999, following Boris Yeltsin’s resignation, Putin was then elected to two four-year terms before he stepped down to allow his protege Dmitry Medvedev to take over. Such has been Putin’s dominance over the nation that he has been accused of moving Russia from the liberal democracy established following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 back towards an autocratic state. Accusations of vote-rigging at elections, the passing of anti-liberal laws and the invasion of neighbouring territories in Ukraine and Georgia have even led many political commentators to label Putin as a modern-day dictator. q
  • Here’s The First-Ever Photo of Light Behaving as Both a Wave and a Particle

    Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne in Switzerland have captured the first photograph of light behaving as both a wave and a particle. “This experiment demonstrates that, for the first time ever, we can film quantum mechanics—and its paradoxical nature—directly," Fabrizio Carbone, who led the research team that designed the technique to capture the breakthrough image, said in a statement. The team was able to capture the image by first shooting a pulse of laser light at a tiny metal wire, causing the light to travel in waves back and forth along the length of the wire. The waves of light on the wire were made up of particles called photons, and when the electrons crashed into the photons, they either sped up or slowed down.
