The aircraft, a twin-engined turboprop Antonov AN-26, had taken off at 6:38 a.m. (0638 ET) from Playa Baracoa, just outside Havana, and crashed into the Loma de la Pimienta mountain some 80 km (50 miles) westwards.

    Golocal247.com news

    Turkey on Saturday blocked all access to Wikipedia and banned television dating shows, adding to fears of a crackdown after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's victory in a referendum on enhancing his powers. The government also dismissed almost 4,000 public officials in the latest wave of the purge under the over nine-month state of emergency that has followed last July's failed coup. Erdogan, who has dominated Turkey since 2003 as premier and now president, narrowly won the April 16 referendum on enhancing his powers which supporters believe will lead to better government but critics say creates one man rule.

  • May expects tough talks; EU alarmed at Brexit 'illusions'

    Golocal247.com news

    By William James and Alastair Macdonald LONDON/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May expects divorce talks with the European Union to be tough, she said on Sunday after EU leaders agreed stiff terms and voiced alarm at "illusions" in London that may wreck a deal. "What this shows, and what some of the other comments we've seen coming from European leaders shows, is that there are going to be times when these negotiations are going to be tough," May told the BBC a day after her EU peers agreed on demands they want met to avoid chaos when Britain leaves the bloc in 2019. At Saturday's Brussels summit of the 27 other EU states, EU chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker accused unnamed pro-Brexit figures of underestimating the complexity of the task and German Chancellor Angela Merkel repeated her concern that London still harbored "illusions" about negotiating a quick free-trade pact.

  • MIT invented a robot that can 3D-print an entire building

    Golocal247.com news

    3D printing has slowly gone from a curious novelty to a totally viable option for creating all kinds of useful things, from chocolate to athletic shoes, and now MIT has invented a way to use the technology to print buildings, too. Given that most 3D printing takes place inside a sealed box, it might be a bit hard to imagine exactly how a structure could be built in such a way, but as you'll see it can most definitely be done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zt_3Gs1ksg The peculiar system is essentially a robotically-controlled arm that sprays an expanding foam which dries hard — kind of like the gap-filling foam you'd buy at a hardware store. The system's sensors detect the hight at which the arm sprays the foam, gradually lifting itself higher as the walls of the structure take shape. In the demo video, the robot is shown building a circular structure with double-thick foam walls supported by internal bracing. The dome was completed in less than 14 hours, which is pretty speedy when you consider it was 12 feet tall and 50 feet across. The system can even account for doorways, can build walls at varying thicknesses to account for specific climates, and could potentially use other materials which it would harvest from the surrounding area if deployed in a remote area. MIT even notes that, once it's built to be completely autonomous, it would be a great option for sending to the moon or Mars where traditional building materials wouldn't necessarily be available.

  • After the Fyre Festival disaster, maybe don't trust models like Bella Hadid when they sell you things

    Golocal247.com news

    Now that the complete disaster that was Fyre Festival is over, it's time for the very attractive people who promoted the event to apologize.  On Saturday, model Bella Hadid let her fans know she was sorry about what went down.  SEE ALSO: Here's the official postmortem statement from Fyre Festival organizers ❤️... pic.twitter.com/5XqHXBGIn9 — Bella Hadid (@bellahadid) April 29, 2017 That's an apology, sort of. I mean, maybe don't promote some totally random thing that you've never experienced or barely know about next time. SEE ALSO: Instagram influencers are utter nonsense, and Fyre Fest proves it Hadid was one of the models—along with Elsa Hosk, Emily Ratajkowski, Lais Ribeiro, and Hailey Baldwin—who hyped up Fyre Festival on Instagram.  @rose_bertram: "Make sure to get your tickets for @fyrefestival 珞weekend two still available! #fyrefestival". #haileybaldwin #bellahadid #rosebertram #HaileyUpdates A post shared by Hailey Baldwin Updates (@baldwinsupdate) on Apr 4, 2017 at 6:43pm PDT In case you were wondering, Fyre Festival did not look like this. Instead, it was filled with disaster relief tents, gourmet meals consisting of cheese slices on bread, and fleeing festival-goers—many of whom paid thousands of dollars for the privilege.  Hadid and pals weren't the only models promoting the festival. The organizers also invited less famous models and "influencers" to attend for free if they posted about the event on Instagram.  Amanda Riley told her tragic story to The Hollywood Reporter.  "I was in L.A. about six months ago when I was offered these tickets — everything paid for. The organizers were trying to get a lot of promotion from models. A couple of friends and I were going to go; everything was paid and comped in exchange for a couple of posts to help them with marketing." Which she did! Packing to leave my home in Los Angeles to head back east to my home and my @wilhelminamodels family in NYC for 24 hours before heading to FYRE festival in the Bahamas for the weekend. Los Angeles will always be my home and this is probably the hardest it's ever been to leave but I'll be back soon (hopefully) Until next time LA xo  #LifeOfAmandaRiley A post shared by Amanda Riley Ferree (@lifeofamandariley) on Apr 25, 2017 at 6:41pm PDT It turns out she got stranded in Miami, so she didn't get to witness the horror in the Bahamas for herself.  "I got lucky since I didn't pay upfront for anything," she wrote. "Worst case, I have to buy one flight back to New York." Um, sad? Anyway, she ends her story with this: "I’m staying out of it because I’m kind of complete with it. My friends and family are safe. And I didn’t pay for anything. So I just don’t want anything to do with that company anymore or deal with these people." Unlike Hadid, she doesn't even apologize for shilling for Fyre Festival—although, to be fair, she didn't promote it as hard.  The lesson here: Don't do things just because models tell you to. Because there's a pretty good chance they'll keep promoting things they know nothing about for cash and free stuff.  WATCH: This electric surfboard can move without the waves

  • Blue Sadie headphones review: premium audio at a premium price

    Golocal247.com news

    Blue, a company known for their microphones and recording equipment, has rolled out a new line of premium headphones. The prices go from $250 to $700, but the sweetest spot for most people would probably be the $400 Sadie over-ear headphones. For the price, you get an integrated amplifier that's supposed to give you high-quality, distortion-free audio like you'd get from a fancy headphone pre-amp, but in a setup that you can take with you. The fit is probably the best part of these headphones: a pair of articulating arms adjust to fit your ears perfectly, and memory foam pads mean you can wear them for a long time without it being uncomfortable. The company claims that the design was inspired by the suspension system race cars use. While that might be a stretch, the built-in amplifier allows them to get about as loud as one, and the closed-ear design blocks out external noise very well, so you could definitely use them in a crowded area to enjoy your music in peace. As for style, they're a clean dark grey with metallic accents, and you can tell right away that they're top of line cans. The nice thing is that unlike a lot of other headphones, they aren't super gaudy, and they don't make you look like a wanna-be club D.J. When it comes to practicality, things also look good. The headphones come with a 4-foot aux cable with iPhone controls that allow you to play, pause and skip songs, as well as a longer 10' cable to use with a desktop computer, or anywhere where you need a bit more wiggle room. As for the sound, it's about what you would expect for headphones that retail for about four hundred dollars: it's clear, warm, and the integrated amplifier allows you to crank up the volume without distorting the sound quality. Sadly, that's really the best thing you can say about the amp: it means you don't have to crank the volume on your smartphone, so you don't get swamped with distortion. But you're still relying on your smartphone's amplifier for the original signal, so you're never going to get the kind of audio quality you would with a pre-amp and a better-definition source. The amp has two settings, a regular amp mode and Amp+, which is supposed to emulate the sound of vinyl records. In practice, Amp+ is louder than the regular amp setting, but other differences are difficult to discern. In some ways, I think Blue's missed an ideal chance here: one of the benefits of smartphones without traditional headphone jacks was supposed to be headphones that connect with a Lightning or USB-C connection. Those headphones would use their own internal amp rather than the phone's amplifier, allowing for much better audio quality. The Sadies already have the difficult part of that, namely the dedicated amplifier. With an optional Lightning or USB-C connector, I could see a major improvement in sound fidelity, and an option to play high-bitrate music without the limitation of the iPhone's audio circuitry. Without a standout feature like that, the Sadies become like any other pair of expensive, great-sounding on-ear headphones. The sound is great, fit is exceptional, but $400 is still a high asking price for a standard, cabled pair of headphones.
