    North Korea warned the United States on Tuesday that it will pay a "terrifying price" if the Korean Peninsula sinks into deeper tensions, stepping up its rhetoric hours after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry blasted Pyongyang for its nuclear program. Kerry told a regional security conference being hosted by Laos that North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons — when the world is trying to rid itself of them — is "very provocative and deeply concerning."

  • Solar Impulse II Completes First Solar-Powered Circumnavigation Of Earth

    The very first round-the-world trip by a solar-powered aircraft has been completed. Solar Impulse 2 touched down in Abu Dhabi after a journey around planet Earth that begun in March 2015, fuelled entirely by energy from the sun Pilot Bertrand Piccard safely landed the jet for its final touch-down after travelling from Cairo. He has shared the controls with fellow pilot André Borschberg throughout the pioneering and record-breaking circumnavigation.  The final landing brings to an end an epic 17-stage journey, covering 42,000 km and clocking up 558 hours of flight time.  Solar Impulse 2 has the wingspan of a Boeing 747, but weighs little more than the average car.  It has a cockpit the size of a telephone box, and its wings are covered with 17,000 solar cells, allowing it to fly day and night without fuel. The two Swiss pilots hope their milestone achievement will pave the way for the creation of new energy efficient technologies, and inspire new clean-energy innovations.

  • German who killed 2 young boys sentenced to life in prison

    A court near Berlin on Tuesday convicted a 33-year-old German security guard of kidnapping, abusing and murdering two small boys — including a child refugee — and sentenced the man to life in prison. The Potsdam regional court said Silvio S., whose surname wasn't given due to German privacy rules, won't automatically be up for release after 15 years because of the seriousness of his crime. The disappearance of a 6-year-old German child named Elias from near his home in Potsdam last July prompted a massive police search.

Dr. Zahinoor Ismail is the lead researcher and said he and his team have developed a checklist for doctors and family members that ask questions about mood, anxiety and social behaviour.
