  • Stealth and Speed: America's SR-71 Blackbird Might Be Old (But Still the World's Fastest Plane)

    Golocal247.com news

    The Blackbird’s design reflected the fact that it was pushing the limits. The SR-71’s J58 engines could only start through use of two vehicle-mounted V8 starter engines, and the triethylborane used in the fuel would belch green flames during ignition. The J58s would switch to a partial ramjet mode at high speeds, such that the SR-71 actually became more fuel efficient when it went faster.

  • Saudi Ritz Carlton to reopen after being used as luxury prison in corruption purge

    Golocal247.com news

    The luxury Riyadh hotel used as a prison during Saudi Arabia's crackdown on corruption will reopen for business next month, suggesting authorities are close to settling the cases of many suspects. Dozens of princes, senior officials and top businessmen were detained and confined in the five-star Ritz-Carlton Riyadh as the government launched the purge in early November. The some 200 detainees occupied half the hotel's 492 rooms. The rest was closed to business. The hotel's website now accepts bookings from Feb. 14, quoting a nightly rate for its cheapest room of 2,439 riyals (£480). Saudi authorities have said they expect the vast majority of suspects to agree to financial settlements of charges against them, and that Riyadh hopes to recover about $100 billion of illicit funds. A small number are expected to be prosecuted. Construction giant Saudi Binladin Group said on Saturday that some of its shareholders might transfer part of their holdings to the state in a settlement with authorities. Chairman Bakr Bin Laden and several family members were detained in the crackdown. In late November, senior Saudi Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, once seen as a leading contender to the throne, was freed after reaching a settlement with authorities that involved paying more than $1 billion, according to a Saudi official. Another top businessman who has been held at the Ritz-Carlton is billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, chairman and owner of global investment firm Kingdom Holding. A Saudi official said this week that he was negotiating a possible settlement but so far had not agreed on terms. It has been rumoured, Mr Talal, one of the world’s richest men, could be forced to pay as much as $7bn. Saudi Arabia is in the midst of a massive political and economic shake-up, marked by the sudden appointment of Prince Mohammed bin Salman as crown prince in June. The 32-year-old son of the king has spearheaded the unprecedented crackdown on corruption among members of the government and royal family, as he consolidates his grip on power in the kingdom.

    By Ellen Francis and Ezgi Erkoyun BEIRUT/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan threatened on Monday to "strangle" a planned 30,000-strong U.S.-backed force in Syria "before it's even born," as Washington's backing for Kurdish fighters drove a wedge into relations with one of its main Middle East allies. The United States announced its support on Sunday for plans for a "border force" to defend territory held by U.S.-backed, Kurdish-led fighters in northern Syria. The Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad responded on Monday by vowing to crush the new force and drive U.S. troops from the country.

  • North and South Korea hold second talks in a week to discuss Winter Olympics

    Golocal247.com news

    North and South Korea met on Monday to discuss the Winter Olympics for the second time in under a week, in a diplomatic thaw that has raised hopes of an eventual de-escalation of military tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Officials from both sides gathered at the Panmunjom “truce village” which straddles their heavily fortified border to hammer out plans to host a North Korean entertainment troupe at the South’s Pyeongchang Games in February, and decide whether to field a joint women’s ice hockey team. To date only two North Korean athletes, figure skaters Ryom Tae-ok and Kim Ju-sik, have qualified for the Games, but Pyongyang is expected to send a delegation of hundreds after a diplomatic breakthrough early this year. The presence at the talks of Hyon Song-wol, lead singer of the Moranbong Band, fuelled speculation that the all-female group, known as North Korea’s answer to the Spice Girls, could appear at the sports event. Seoul has made no secret of its hope that North Korea’s participation in the Games could mark a turning point in relations after a year of sabre-rattling and growing fears of war over Pyongyang’s ongoing nuclear and missiles programme. The head of North Korean delegation Ri Son-Gwon (C) crosses a border line to attend a meeting at the Panmunjom truce village last week Credit: Getty North Korea on Monday offered another olive branch to its neighbour, proposing a third round of high level talks on Wednesday, although the agenda was not immediately clear. The negotiations, although the first in over two years, are still baby steps in the overall picture of military tensions between two countries who have technically been at war since the 1950s. The new thaw appears to have done little to mute Pyongyang’s animosity towards the United States. Speculation has risen that North Korea's all-female Moranbong Band may appear at the Games  Credit: AFP The North has made clear that denuclearisation is not on the table, and it castigated South Korean President Moon Jae-in for thanking US President Donald Trump for helping to push both sides to negotiations.   The US, despite agreeing to delay joint military exercises with Seoul until after the Olympics, is continuing to bolster its presence around the Korean Peninsula by deploying stealth bombers, at least one extra aircraft carrier and a new amphibious assault ship to the region. North Korea accused it of trying to put a chill on the renewed talks. “Such moves are an unpardonable military provocation chilling the atmosphere for improved inter-Korean relations,” Kim Jong-un’s party said in a commentary published over the weekend.

"The majority of goodwill originates from investments made 10 years ago or more, and has limited relevance for Ericsson's business going forward," Ericsson said in a statement. Once the world's biggest manufacturer of mobile network gear, Ericsson has been hit by competition from Huawei [HWT.UL] and Nokia , while telecom operator spending has slumped ahead of the roll-out of next-generation 5G technology.

  • Several dead in operation to arrest rogue Venezuela pilot Óscar Pérez

    Golocal247.com news

    Two police officers were killed outside Caracas as security forces closed in on a rogue pilot and former policeman who stole a helicopter and bombed government buildings in an audacious stunt that inspired protesters across Venezuela. Police traced Óscar Pérez to a run-down area near the capital on Monday after six months on the run following his air raid in June last year. According to the Ministry of the Interior and Justice, five members of the “terrorist cell” were arrested in a shootout that lasted several hours and left five injured.  Mr Pérez raised the alarm in typically dramatic fashion with a series of posts on Instagram showing him with a bloody face as he claimed to be under siege from regime forces. He was cornered by special security forces in his hiding place in El Junquito, a poor area 25 km northwest of Caracas, according to Venezuelan authorities.  "They are firing at us with grenade launchers, we said we were going to surrender and they don’t want to let us surrender, they want to kill us" Mr Pérez said in one of the videos published online during the siege. Police vehicles seen lining a street during a shootout between security forces and rogue Venezuelan helicopter pilot Oscar Perez Credit:  MARCO BELLO/ REUTERS Diosdado Cabello, President Nicolás Maduro's second in command, confirmed the gunfight on his Twitter account last night. “The terrorist Óscar Pérez and his band opened fire on the police, killing a policeman, wounding 10, three of them seriously” he wrote.  State television also confirmed the arrests, although Mr Pérez’s fate was last night unkonwn.  Mr Pérez, a former police pilot, has been missing since last June when he hijacked a police helicopter and tossed grenades on the Interior Ministry and Supreme Court. There were no injuries or fatalities.  He went into hiding immediately after the attack, but sent messages on social media calling for a rebellion against the government of President Maduro, whom he blames for the economic crisis that the country is facing.  Members of the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN) patrol Caracas as an operation to capture Oscar Perez Credit: AFP/JUAN BARRETO The attack occurred in the midst of a wave of protests against Mr Maduro's as he dismantled the opposition-held legislative and replaced it with a puppet congress. The uprising left more than 100 dead last year. Accused of terrorism, for months Mr Pérez was the subject of "wanted" posters pasted across Venezuela as authorities attempted to calm simmering tensions. His group was also accused of breaking into a National Guard building on December 18 and stealing military weapons.  Mr Pérez's last video was posted at around 10:30am, local time on Monday. Some local media outlets say he was killed during the operation but The Telegraph was unable to confirm the claims. Aside from the five of Mr Pérez's group who were arrested, authorities also said  "criminals were killed", although the number of deaths was not confirmed.
