  • 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

  • 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

Mrs Lee posted a picture of the pair on Facebook that blasted them for "not budging".

  • Princess Charlotte gives wave to the crowd while Prince George refuses high-five greeting

    Princess Charlotte, wearing a blue-flowered frock, gave a little wave, much to the delight of the assembled crowd who had gathered to see the royal family of four. The star of the Canadian royal tour is Princess Charlotte, on her first official visit. Shortly after landing in Victoria, British Columbia on Saturday (24 September), uniformed guards were seen unloading the young princess's dresses for the eight-day visit. The year-old daughter of Kate Middleton is making her first overseas trip, while three-year-old brother George has already visited Australia and New Zealand. Kate Middleton carried her daughter down the steps of the Canadian Government Airbus 310, taking care of her safety as Princess Charlotte appeared to have a small graze on her right knee. The next time the public see Princess Charlotte and Prince George will be on 1 October as the royal children's appearances are being restricted to give them privacy and shield them from scrutiny. "It would have been overwhelming for them," royal watcher Debbie Burnham told NBC news. "This allows the parents to relax." Prince George seemed confused by the Canadian prime minister's attempt to high-five him. Trudeau knelt down on the tarmac to greet the young prince, raising his hand in greeting. It was an embarrassing moment as the Canadian then tried to shake the three-year old's hand. Prince George held tightly on to his father, Prince William's hand, obviously not having learned the correct way to salute a Canadian premier. It's not known whether Trudeau gave the instruction "Gimme five!" Kate and William will visit Vancouver on Sunday (25 September) to visit Downtown Eastside, which is an area known for poverty and homeless addicts. The royals will then move on to an immigrant welcome centre where they will talk with refugee families from Syria. More than 30,000 refugees have settled in Canada since Trudeau was elected prime minister in October 2015.

  • 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.

  • Female terrorists arrested in France as Europe braces for attack by jihadi brides | World | News

    Fears of a new wave of female recruits have been growing in France since authorities made several arrests of women who had pledged allegiant to the twisted terror network. Earlier this month French police arrested two young women from the city of Nice for suspected ties to the ISIS militant Rachid Kassim, the Paris prosecutors' office said on Sunday. The teenagers, aged 17 and 19, were being groomed to carry out an attack on “specific targets” in France in retaliation for the recent death of the Islamic State's spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, a source close to the investigation said. The pair used the Telegram encrypted messaging system to communicate with Kassim, who is suspected of having participated in several attacks or attempted attacks in France.

  • Strictly Come Dancing: Distracting trousers aside, an awesome opening weekend

    I agree with Craig - a bit too sickly for me and I personally didn’t feel it deserved a 9. Louise was as good as I was expecting her to be, and with Choreography King Kevin giving the judges what they want to see, she’ll go a long way. Exciting choreography - there was enough cha cha for me - and super timing.
