  1. Volkswagen has been hard at work readying its electric ID. R race car for its Nurburgring record attempt. The German manufacturer has set sights on the 1,341bhp NIO EP9’s 6:45.90 time, which is currently the best lap ever recorded by an electric vehicle. Using its ID. R which demolished the record at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb last year, Volkswagen has developed some new parts to optimise the race car for use on The Green Hell. One of the big changes given to the car is a new rear wing that works similarly to Formula 1 car. At the touch of a button, the driver will be able to open up an element of the rear wing which will reduce downforce by approximately 20 per cent and lower the car’s drag, not unlike the Drag Reduction System (DRS) found in a Formula 1 car. Other new aerodynamic elements include a new floor and a new front splitter to better deal with the denser air at the Nurburgring as compared to the old Pikes Peak configured parts.

  3. Finally come to an end after more than 2 decades. Japan executes AUM doomsday cult founder Asahara, 6 members https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2018/07/2f080e7e4f87-bulletin-aum-founder-asahara-mastermind-behind-1995-sarin-gas-attack-executed.html AUM Shinrikyo cult founder Shoko Asahara, who was convicted of numerous murders including the 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system, was executed Friday along with six former senior members of the cult, the Justice Ministry said. Asahara, 63, whose real name was Chizuo Matsumoto, was sentenced to death more than a decade ago for masterminding the subway attack and other acts that resulted in the deaths of 29 people among a total of over 6,500 victims. He was among 13 people placed on death row in connection with the string of crimes perpetrated by the doomsday cult. The six others executed on the same day are Yoshihiro Inoue, 48, Tomomitsu Niimi, 54, Tomomasa Nakagawa, 55, Kiyohide Hayakawa, 68, Masami Tsuchiya, 53, and Seiichi Endo, 58. Asahara was executed at a Tokyo detention center, while the others were hanged at the same detention center as well as those in Osaka, Hiroshima and Fukuoka. "Their death penalties had been finalized after sufficient deliberations at courts," Justice Minister Yoko Kamikawa said at a press conference in the afternoon, adding that she made careful considerations before ordering the executions on Tuesday. Kamikawa, however, declined to comment on how the seven were selected among the death row inmates. In March, seven of the 13 AUM death row inmates were transferred from the Tokyo detention center to other facilities across the country, fanning speculation they could be executed anytime. Some of those transferred were not among the seven hanged Friday. Inoue, who was among the transferred seven, filed for a retrial at the time. Japan usually does not execute people who are seeking retrial. The move drew sharp criticism from some lawmakers as well as Amnesty International, which called capital punishment "the ultimate denial of human rights." Kamikawa said that capital punishment is "unavoidable" for such heinous crimes. The following are brief descriptions of three major criminal cases involving the AUM Shinrikyo doomsday cult. Tokyo subway sarin gas attack Under instructions from AUM leader Shoko Asahara, 15 senior members conspired to take plastic bags containing sarin liquid onto five Tokyo subway trains and release the poison by puncturing the bags with umbrellas, vaporizing the nerve agent, during the morning rush hour on March 20, 1995. The attack, one of Japan's worst terrorism incidents, killed 13 people and injured over 6,200. Matsumoto sarin attack Under instructions from Asahara, several AUM members released sarin gas from a vehicle mounted with a spraying device at a parking lot in a residential district of the city of Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, central Japan, on the night of June 27, 1994. The attack killed eight people and injured more than 100. Lawyer Sakamoto murder Under instructions from Asahara, six AUM members strangled 33-year-old lawyer Tsutsumi Sakamoto, who had been helping parents seeking to free their children from the cult's control, as well as his 29-year-old wife Satoko and their 1-year-old son Tatsuhiko, after sneaking into the family's home in Yokohama, near Tokyo, in the early hours of Nov. 4, 1989. Victims of AUM crimes and their families largely welcomed the move, which came decades after the crimes were committed due to prolonged trials. Some said Japan has now lost a chance to hear an account of the crimes from Matsumoto, who had stopped making meaningful speeches from the middle of his first trial, which started in April 1996. "The time has come. That was my only thought," said Shizue Takahashi, 71, who lost her then-50-year-old husband, the assistant stationmaster Kazumasa, in the Tokyo subway sarin attack, adding many others had been waiting for the day. "A third of my life has been affected by AUM. Thinking that makes me feel frustrated," Takahashi said. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said police have increased vigilance toward the cult's successor organization, Aleph, following the executions. "The police will take measures to be fully prepared," the top government spokesman said when asked by reporters about potential retaliation by people close to the cult. The Public Security Intelligence Agency on the same day inspected Aleph offices and other related sites nationwide. Asahara was arrested in May 1995, just under two months after the March 20 subway attack, which claimed the lives of 13 people and left more than 6,200 others injured. In a February 2004 ruling, the Tokyo District Court found Asahara guilty of all 13 charges and sentenced him to death, saying, "We cannot help saying that the motivation and purpose of the crimes were too outrageous and ridiculous, as he tried to control Japan in the name of salvation." Asahara was also convicted of masterminding a June 1994 sarin gas attack in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, which killed eight people and injured more than 100. He was also convicted of the murders of lawyer Tsutsumi Sakamoto, who had been helping parents seeking to free their children of the cult's control, and his wife and their 1-year-old son in November 1989. The death sentence against him was finalized in 2006. After his arrest and the start of his trial in April 1996, Asahara began exhibiting baffling behavior in the courtroom and detention facilities, often remaining silent or just mumbling. His execution came as a slew of trials involving AUM members came to an end after more than 20 years with the Supreme Court's decision on Jan. 18 to reject an appeal against a life sentence filed by Katsuya Takahashi, the last former member on trial. Japan forgoes executing death row inmates if an accomplice is still on trial. Around 190 people were indicted for crimes involving AUM Shinrikyo, and Asahara's first trial alone took seven years and 10 months to complete at the Tokyo District Court. AUM evolved from a yoga school established by Asahara in 1984 and had about 1,400 live-in followers and over 10,000 lay followers at one point. It renamed itself Aleph in 2000 and two splinter groups have been formed, including one established by high-profile former member Fumihiro Joyu. Following reports of the executions, Joyu reiterated his apology to people affected by AUM but said he is no longer part of the original cult. "As I also bear a heavy responsibility, I would like to apologize to the victims," he said, although adding, "I have left Aleph more than 10 years ago, and I don't have any special feelings (for Asahara)." The Public Security Intelligence Agency continued to monitor the groups, believing they were still under the influence of Asahara. The followers of the three groups total about 1,650 in Japan and about 460 in Russia, while the groups hold more than 1 billion yen ($9 million) in assets, according to the agency. Asahara told his followers he is the incarnation of Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction and regeneration, and urged them to entrust themselves and their assets to Shiva and himself for life, according to prosecutors who indicted him. After he and 24 other AUM members unsuccessfully ran in the House of Representatives election in 1990 in an attempt to take over the state, he started planning mass murders of members of the public in revenge, according to the prosecutors.

    https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2018/03/08/cops-investigating-viral-slashing-video/ [media][/media] PETALING JAYA: Police are investigating a shocking video being shared on social media showing two men slashing a woman. The two-and-a-half minute video, which has gone viral, is alleged to have been shot at an industrial estate in Klang. "We are in the midst of tracing the whereabouts of the suspects in the video. Our initial investigation indicates that it was a fight between a husband and wife," said Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat when contacted. The video starts with a man dragging and beating a woman in front of a blue car, while several people witnessing the beating are heard screaming. Another man can be seen getting out of the car brandishing a weapon resembling a machete and walking towards the two, as the other man drags the woman towards the passenger side of the vehicle. Moments later the accomplice opens the car door as the suspect grabs the weapon and threatens to slash the woman. The two men drag the woman behind the passenger side door as one of the suspects swings the weapon repeatedly at the woman. The two then bundle the woman into the car as she is heard screaming for help before driving off.

    Brussels under attack!

    After Paris, now it's Brussels... http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35869254 Brussels Zaventem airport blasts cause casualties5 minutes ago From the sectionEurope Media captionPeople fled Brussels airport after two explosions went offTwo blasts have struck the departures area of Zaventem airport in Brussels. The Belgian government has confirmed casualties but has given no numbers. The cause of the explosions is unknown. Another explosion has now been reported at a metro station close to the EU institutions. The whole metro system has been closed. The blasts come four days after the capture in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the jihadist attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015. Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level. Brussels airport blasts - latest updates Emergency services are clearing the airport completely. Belgium's Het Laatste Nieuws reports that more bombs have been found. The airport is being evacuated and has been closed to flights. The Belga news agency reports that shots were fired and shouts in Arabic were heard before the two explosions. Media captionDamage at the departure lounge of Brussels airportImages on social media showed smoke rising from one of the buildings, amid reports of panic as people fled the airport. Rail transport to the facility has been halted and people have been told not to come to the airport. All flights have been diverted. Other reports say at least one of the explosions was close to the American Airlines check-in area but this has not been confirmed. The Belgian broadcaster RTBF quoted a witness as saying there were people injured or unconscious in the departure area, opposite the Sheraton hotel. There are few reports yet about the metro blast. Niels Caignau, a Swissport employee, told Flemish broadcaster VRT: "I was on a break and heard and felt a big explosion - we have from here a view over the departure hall and saw a plume of smoke come out. "The windows are completely shattered. People went outside in shock. It doesn't look good." Belgium's Interior Minister Jan Jambon had said on Monday that the country was on the highest level of alert for possible revenge attacks after the capture of Salah Abdeslam. He told Belgian radio: "We know that stopping one cell can... push others into action. We are aware of it in this case." Zaventem airport is 11km (7 miles) north-east of Brussels and dealt with more than 23 million passengers last year.
  10. This is no accident, more like murder in broad daylight. A car drives at high speed and knocks over two persons, in broad daylight. One person falls on the hood in front of the car, and the car rolls over him. That is not all. The driver gets out, and starts KICKING the fallen! Kicks one, then runs over the kick the other. All this in broad daylight, in front of at least two other people who just stand by and watch the drama unfold!
  11. http://news.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews...122-102614.html BEIJING, Nov 22 (Reuters) - A panda at a zoo in southern China attacked a student who snuck into its pen hoping for a cuddle with the endangered bear, state media said on Saturday. The 20-year-old male student surnamed Liu jumped over the fence at the zoo in the tourist city of Guilin, ignoring warning signs not to, Xinhua news agency said. "The panda, named Yangyang, was wide awake. Apparently scared by the intruder, he bit at Liu's arms and legs," it quoted an unnamed worker as saying after zoo keepers managed to calm the bear and rescue Liu, the report said. "Yangyang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him," Liu was quoted as saying from his hospital bed. "I didn't expect he would attack." Scientists believe fewer than 2,000 giant pandas live in the wild in China

  13. Not the human kind but the real deal... From The Telegraph: http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nati...r-1226316880761 Woman saved by cruise ship passenger after croc latches onto her legs By Lisa Quartermain PerthNow April 03, 2012 11:19AM Tara Hawkes suffered severe lacererations and puncture wounds. Picture: Facebook Source: PerthNow A YOUNG woman is recovering in hospital after being bitten on the legs by a saltwater crocodile while swimming from a luxury boat in the Kimberley. A passenger is believed to have pulled Tara Hawkes to safety as she was being attacked just metres from the cruise ship True North. Ms Hawkes, 23, formerly of Busselton, was paddling at Dugong Bay when a 2m crocodile latched on to her legs. Ms Hawkes, an employee of the True North, was pulled back on to the vessel and flown by helicopter to a hospital in Derby. True North has its own helicopter and landing pad. Miss Hawkes suffered lacerations and puncture wounds to her upper legs and is in a stable condition. It is believed she needs further treatment and will be transferred to another hospital by plane. The attack came just two days after father Peter Kurmann was killed by a shark on the same stretch of wA coastline. Dugong Bay is south of Talbot Bay and near Horizontal Falls, near Derby. True North - popular with wealthy tourists and WA locals - was the cruise ship used by American model Jerry Hall and her Perth-based boyfriend Warwick Hemsley on a recent trip to the Kimberley. Ms Hawkes posted pictures of True North on her Facebook page. The vessel, which can carry 36 passengers and has 20 staff, was purpose-built to access remote wilderness areas. Passengers pay thousands a day for a berth - a seven-night Kimberley adventure costs $9000-$14,000 a person. The ship is due to take passengers from Wyndham to the King George Falls this weekend.
  14. Incidents of road rage are on the rise in Singapore, with known attacks occurring once every four days last year. Reported cases that resulted in assault rose to 97 last year, up from 84 in 2011 and 63 in 2010. Some of the cases were heard in court in recent months. A businessman was sentenced to one month in jail earlier this month for punching a technician he felt should have given way to him on a street in Jurong East.

  16. How come the 'Anonymous' upload this video to youtube, then take it down? I searched on youtube and found several other videos purportedly done by 'Anonymous' against the respective countries' government but those videos have remained viewable on youtube. After looking through these Anonymous videos on youtube, I conclude a pattern: - It has identical opening video clip segment. - Most have identical segment that shows the guy in the mask facing the camera speaking from script. - The voice-over is from text-to-speech software. That means there is some stock Anonymous clip somewhere that people can download to use, just make amendments to the voice script and parse it through the text-to-speech software then add in the audio stream? P.S: how many brudders' here are secretly hoping that the real Anonymous (if there is one) can make our ERP gantries free? -------------------- Police investigating video threatening cyberattack on Singapore: IDA SINGAPORE — Police are investigating a YouTube video that purportedly showed an anonymous hacker group threatening to attack Singapore, said the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) today (Oct 31). The video, posted on Oct 29, claims to be put up by international hacker group Anonymous. Showing a person seated at a table and wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, a digitised voice-over threatened to attack Singapore’s infrastructures over the new licensing scheme for online news sites. “We demand you reconsider the regulations of your framework or we will be forced to go to war with you,” the video said. Lasting about three minutes and 40 seconds, the video also said that hacker The Messiah, who is behind the hacking of several websites in Singapore, is part of Anonymous. By this evening, the original video appeared to have been removed from YouTube, although copies can still be found online. In response to TODAY’s queries, an IDA spokesperson would only say, “We are aware of the video, and the police are investigating into the matter.” Queries have been sent to the police. http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/police-investigating-video-threatening-cyberattack-singapore

  22. It was report in today's The Straits Times that Michael Puhaindran, who is the surviving husband of Lo Hwei Yen has afterall found himself another soul mate. They are going to tie the knot on 1/1/12. After all the intensive media attention and focus on how he felt about the loss of his wife and from the newspaper reports, internet discussions and his blog we empathise his devoted love for her, this news came a bit of like an anti-climax. There is no right or wrong in this issue but my point is we got to have some reservations with what we post or said in the media or social network because news like this will definitely leave a bad taste to someone has negative views about remarrying soon after the passing of spouse. Especially in this case.
