  • Escort's diary recalls encounter with HBOS exec: 'Chinese meal. Then drinks at flat and quick shag. Easy £1500.'

    Lynden Scourfield, a former senior banker at Halifax Bank of Scotland, took gifts of cash, luxury holidays and "high class escorts," a jury in London has heard during a trial surrounding an alleged fraud that cost HBOS £245 million ($317 million). The trial, which began on Monday, involves David Mills and Michael Bancroft who ran consultancy firm Quayside, accountants Tony Cartwright and Jonathan Cohen, and HBOS manager Mark Dobson, all of whom pleaded not guilty. As part of the evidence given during proceedings, prosecutors told the jury that Scourfield, who ran the HBOS impaired assets division and who is not on trial, lent large sums of money to troubled small businesses.

  • Bad Brad vs Saint Angelina? The Jolie-Pitt divorce is just history repeating itself

    While her mother presented a saintly, compassionate image, the sad truth was that when she died she had fallen out with most of her friends and family, including her father, sister, brother and others, often for the most trivial of reasons. While both Angie and her brother James have waxed lyrical about their mother’s marvellous home cooking, in reality, the kids lived on take-outs and she was rarely at home – often flying somewhere for work or her love life dating, among others, Burt Reynolds, Warren Beatty and Al Pacino. The children were raised by an assortment of friends and out of work actors who doubled up as nannies. When Marche – or Marche Mallow – was around she had few boundaries for

  • Champions League Round-Up: Brendan Rodgers is a football genius

    Vincent Kompany’s absence doesn’t help, but nor does the presence of John Stones, Gael Clichy, Pablo Zabaleta, Claudio Bravo, Aleksandar Kolarov or Nicolas Otamendi. Stones and Bravo may come good over the course of the season, and Kolarov’s passing from deep is an attacking threat, but at the moment that is a guff defence. This has been true, at times, for other Pep Guardiola teams.

  • Rise in Nigerian sex slavery in Italy fuelled by violence and 'juju' magic

    By Tom Esslemont CATANIA, Italy (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - When Nigerian teenager Beauty arrived in Sicily after crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa last year, she had only hours to phone the man who trafficked her - or risk lethal repercussions for loved ones back home. Before her journey through Niger to Libya, a spiritual priest practicing a form of black magic known in Nigeria as "juju" had forced her to swear an oath of obedience to her trafficker. The threat of a "curse" if she broke her oath and the possibility of violence by her traffickers at home in Benin City, a southern Nigerian hub for human trafficking, were enough to trap her into sex slavery.

  • Adolf Hitler could have WON Second World War 'if he had invaded the Isle of Wight'

    GETTY Military historian Dr Robert Forczyk has analysed Nazi Germany war records which show that the Fuhrer had a detailed plan for the occupation of the island, which is four miles off the coast of England. In his book, 'We March Against England', Dr Forczyk claims the Fuhrer had wanted to occupy the island and use it as a base from which to carry out a Nazi bombardment of Britain. But Hitler's naval commanders are said to have talked him out of the move, as they feared the might of British submarines and overestimated the capabilities of British troops. If Hitler had invaded the Isle of Wight, he would have had a vital military base, as well as access to civilian airfields, improving the Nazis'

  • 'How do I tell my little girls daddy won't see them grow up?'

    From the moment I met Ross, eight years ago, there was an instant spark. Literally the next day I left Essex to move in with him in Coventry. I’m an actress – I played Emma Miller in Byker Grove for seven years – and Ross’s dad is ex-Aston Villa player Andy Blair, so we come from similar worlds. We’re so close, his friends even call us ‘Rolly’. Three years later, our daughter Brooke was born and we got married when she was 11 months. We wanted to do it our way and didn’t tell a soul – we just had two witnesses at Coventry registry office. I wore a white hoodie with a red dress and Ross wore his dad’s old football shirt from his Sheffield Wednesday days. Afterwards, we went for a cuppa and a scone.

  • Xiaomi's Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus laugh at your flagship's specs

    Xiaomi, the Chinese company that makes phones with specs that top Samsung and Apple flagships, and then sells them at half the price, is at it again.  The company just launched two new phones in China: The Mi 5s and the Mi 5s Plus. The phones are an obvious answer to the iPhone — both are very, very powerful devices, but the 5s Plus is bigger and has a dual camera.  SEE ALSO: Xiaomi Mi 5 is a flagship smartphone with a really low price As you might imagine, the specs on these things are top notch. The Xiaomi Mi 5s has a 5.15-inch, Full HD screen, a 2.15GHz Snapdragon 821 chip, 3/4GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage.  It also has a fingerprint scanner has a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a 4-megapixel selfie cam with an f/2.0 aperture and 2-micron pixels.  #Mi5s new Xiaomi flagship: ultra-large camera sensor with 1.55um pixels, ultrasonic under-glass fingerprint sensor, 600-nit display, SD821 pic.twitter.com/BChcE3OGgP — Hugo Barra (@hbarra) September 27, 2016 The price is RMB 1,999 or $300 for the 3GB/64GB variant, while the 4GB/128GB version costs RMB 2,299 or $345.  5s Plus currently the most powerful out there As for the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus, it is, on paper, currently the most powerful smartphone out there. It has a 5.7-inch, Full HD screen, a 2.35GHz Snapdragon 821 chip, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of storage, and a fingerprint scanner.  It also has a Sony-made, dual, 13-megapixel camera on the back, the setup being similar to the dual-camera setup on the Huawei P9 — one camera takes color snaps and the other monochrome for increased sharpness. The selfie cam on the front is also a 4-megapixel one.   #Mi5sPlus Xiaomi’s first dual-camera flagship, 2x13MP w/ dedicated monochrome sensor, 6GB RAM + 128GB Flash, SD821 164,000 AnTuTu score pic.twitter.com/zkJcaUnDxi — Hugo Barra (@hbarra) September 27, 2016 The price for the 4GB/64GB variant is RMB 2299 ($345), while the 6GB/128GB version costs RMB 2,599 ($390).  While the spec sheet for both devices reads great (especially considering the price), there's more technical wizardry going on there that's not immediately apparent.  For example, the fingerprint sensor on the Mi 5s is ultrasonic and placed under glass, which should theoretically mean it will not wear out with use. And the dual camera on the Mi 5s Plus sits flush with the phone's back, unlike the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. Interestingly, the sensor on the Mi 5s — Sony's IMX378 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with 1.55um pixels — is more advanced than the 13-megapixel sensors on the Mi 5s Plus. Design-wise, the phones aren't far off their predecessor, the Mi 5. Both have an aluminum body and a curvy back; the Plus has a round fingerprint sensor nested below the dual rear camera, while the Mi 5s's back is clean save for the camera sensor and the antenna lines.  There's no jet black (or any sort of black) option, however — an odd omission from Xiaomi which takes pride in following in Apple's footsteps (and sometimes being a step ahead, as well).  The phones will be available in four colors: gold, rose gold, silver and white, and will go on sale starting Sept. 29. There's no word on international availability.
