Budget 2014: George Osborne to announce new £1 coin
George Osborne will use his Budget to announce a new 12-sided £1 coin based on the old threepenny bit
The £1 coin is to be replaced by a new model based on the old threepenny bit, George Osborne will announce in the Budget.
The Chancellor will say that the current coin, which has been in circulation for 30 years, is no longer suitable for use because it has become vulnerable to sophisticated counterfeiters.
The new 12-sided coin will be as secure as modern banknotes and will save taxpayers' money by cutting down on millions of pounds worth of fraud.

North Korea warns South, US over 'provocative' military drills
North Korea warns South, US over 'provocative' military drills

North Korea demanded that South Korea and the United States cancel annual military exercises planned for February and March, saying the drills were a "dangerous" provocation that could push the situation on the Korean Peninsula to a catastrophe.

The North's KCNA state news agency quoted a committee in charge of efforts to promote Korean unification as saying the drills have "created such a deplorable situation in which huge aggression troops of the U.S. are deployed in areas close to the Military Demarcation Line."

"We sternly warn the U.S. and the South Korean authorities to stop the dangerous military exercises which may push the situation on the peninsula and the North-South ties to a catastrophe," the statement from the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said, UPI reported.

South Korea and the U.S. regularly conduct routine, defense-oriented drills such as the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercises to help to bolster security on the peninsula and to highlight the longstanding military partnership between the two countries.

North Korea has described the drills as a prelude to invasion. In 2013, the North warned the top American commander in South Korea of "miserable destruction" if the U.S. military pressed ahead with the same exercises scheduled to begin next month.

The North said the announcement of the this year's drills "is little short of the declaration of a total nuclear stand-off," adding the exercises will cause the North-South ties to plunge into an "unimaginable holocaust and that disaster will follow should they go ahead with the nuclear war drills and make military provocation, defying our warning," according to UPI.

South Korea said Wednesday the drills will go ahead as planned and that North Korea's military has showed no sign of unusual activity, Reuters reported.

"If North Korea actually commits military aggression at the excuse of what is a normal exercise we conduct as preparation for emergency, our military will mercilessly and decisively punish them," South Korea's Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min Seok told reporters Wednesday.

Peru vs Chile disputa maritima Corte de la Haya Decidira el 27 de Enero 2014
Peru vs Chile disputa maritima Corte de la Haya Decidira el 27 de Enero 2014

El gobierno peruano y los partidos políticos del país acordaron el viernes ( 27 de diciembre) mantener una posición de unidad de cara a una decisión a finales de enero por la Corte Internacional de Justiciade La Haya, sobre el conflicto de la frontera marítima entre Chile y Perú , que pondría fin a una disputa histórica entre los dos países.
En un encuentro inusual entre el gobierno y las fuerzas de la oposición en el palacio de gobierno, sus representantes reafirmaron en un comunicado conjunto que se respetará la decisión, cualquiera que ésta sea , en pos de mantener las relaciones con el país vecino , que han crecido en los últimos años.
"Es un día excepcional porque todos los principales dirigentes de los partidos políticos han expresado una voluntad de unidad, hemos mantenido una larga sesión , pero no de la discusión y el debate, sino de las contribuciones realmente excepcionales ", dijo el primer ministro peruano, César Villanueva a finales de la reunión.
En 2008 , Perú pidió a la corte para determinar la frontera marítima en una zona de conflicto de unos 38.000 kilometros , mientras que Chile sostiene que los límites ya están establecidos . La decisión se publicará el 27 de enero después de haber sido pospuesta a mediados de año debido a los días en la corte y después de evitar la coincidencia con las elecciones presidenciales de Chile .
" Hemos dado nuestro apoyo completo. Usted tiene la declaración que hemos hecho hoy y que en ese sentido todos los partidos políticos de diferentes tendencias han cerrado filas en ese sentido y seguimos para apoyarlos ", dijo el congresista Renzo Reggiardo .
Jorge del Castillo, el líder del Partido Aprista Peruano , añadió que los partidos políticos habían demostrado madurez en su anuncio.
"Hemos anunciado que nos regimos por la decisión, sea la que sea . Este es un momento verdaderamente importante, ya que implica un sentido de madurez, de responsabilidad, de seriedad, de que las circunstancias así lo exijan . "
A pesar de la controversia, el intercambio comercial y las inversiones entre Perú y Chile han crecido sustancialmente en los últimos años y no deben ser afectados por la decisión del tribunal , de acuerdo con analistas y empresarios de ambos países.

Christmas in Cambodia
Christmas in Cambodia

How Christians and non-Christians from Cambodia and around the world celebrate Christmas
Christmas has arrived around the world, and in Cambodia the festive season hasn't gone unnoticed as many Cambodians celebrate Christmas in their homes, at their churches or with their families.
As a result, from the start of December, Christmas decorations and Christmas trees have been seen almost everywhere -- in coffee shops, book stores, supermarkets and other businesses.

Cambodian Christian Ung Vicheka, 20, who is working at ALIS, says he celebrated Christmas at home with his family last year.

"We invited about 30 neighbours to come to our house. We decorated a Xmas tree, but the tree did not represent anything. It was just for decoration," he said. "Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ, and we gave gifts to children.

Love Boat' Cruise Ship Makes Final Trip, Will be Scrapped in Turkey
Love Boat' Cruise Ship Makes Final Trip, Will be Scrapped in Turkey

The "Love Boat" cruise ship--the ship used by the 1970s TV show "Love Boat"--sailed its final trip to Turkey, where it will be turned into scrap, according to reports.

The 42-year-old vessel, dubbed the MS Pacific, arrived on Turkey's Aegean Sea coast, said a shipping group on Wednesday. While there, it will be stripped of its metal and parts, according to Reuters.

Ersin Ceviker of the Ship Recyclers' Association of Turkey said that the "ship has undergone several modifications over its lifespan. It had been decommissioned for five years, and renovation now would have been too costly."

The ship appeared on "Love Boat" from 1977 to 1986, and it was called the Pacific Princess. While on the ship, characters in the show would engage in romance and humorous encounters.

Cruise industry executive say that the ABC show's popularity helped bolster the cruise industry for several years in the 1980s.

The ship was built in 1971 for Flagship Cruises and was called the Sea Venture, reported USA Today.

The Izmir Ship Recycling Co. bought the bought in 2012 for $3.3 million to turn it into scrap, according to Waste & Recycling News.

Vietnam: hallan en un bosque a un padre y a su hijo perdidos hace 40 años
La última vez que se los había visto fue en 1973, cuando el hombre huyó llevándose a su hijo durante la guerra.H
HANOI, Vietnam.- Una increíble historia acapara hoy los titulares de la prensa vietnamita: en la selva del centro del país, un hombre y su hijo sobrevivieron 40 años sin contacto alguno con la civilización. Aunque aún no ha podido comprobarse, los vecinos de la aldea de Tra Kem no dudan de que los dos hombres recién encontrados son Ho Van Than y su hijo Lang, desaparecidos desde 1973.

En una fotografía puede verse al más joven, de 40 años, rodeado de los vecinos de la aldea (en la provincia de Quang Ngai). Su imagen es la de una persona atemorizada. Está descalzo, muy delgado, con el pelo enredado y vestido apenas con un taparrabos a base de cortezas de árboles. "Pedí que los vigilaran para asegurarnos de que no echaran a correr hacia la selva", dijo a dpa el presidente del distrito, Hoang Anh Ngoc.

"Nadie en el pueblo pensaba que fuera posible que Thanh (de 82 años) y Lang pudieran sobrevivir durante 40 años de aislamiento en circunstancias tan duras", cuenta Ho Van Xanh, uno de los aldeanos. Los hombres fueron hallados el miércoles, después de que unos vecinos se adentraran en la selva en busca de leña y dieran con la cabaña que padre e hijo habían construido en un árbol.

World leaders react to North Korea's nuclear test
World leaders react to North Korea's nuclear test

Reaction to North Korea's nuclear test -- its third since 2006 -- poured in Tuesday from around the world:

Barack Obama, U.S. president:

"This is a highly provocative act that ... undermines regional stability, violates North Korea's obligations under numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions, contravenes its commitments under the September 19, 2005, Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks, and increases the risk of proliferation.

North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs constitute a threat to U.S. national security and to international peace and security. The United States remains vigilant in the face of North Korean provocations and steadfast in our defense commitments to allies in the region."
For South Koreans, a familiar tone from Pyongyang
"The danger posed by North Korea's threatening activities warrants further swift and credible action by the international community. The United States will also continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies."

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta

"We're going to have to continue to deal with rogue states like Iran and North Korea. We just saw what North Korea's done in these last few weeks -- a missile test and now a nuclear test. They represent a serious threat to the United States of America and we've got to be prepared to deal with that."

China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

The Chinese government "resolutely opposes" North Korea's nuclear test, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a prepared statement.

"Holding up peace and stability in Northeast Asia is China's resolute position," it said. "We strongly urge (North Korea) to abide by (its) promise to denuclearize and take no further action that will worsen the situation."

Park Geun-hye, South Korean president-elect:

"Despite the strong warning from the international community and South Korea, North Korea has conducted its third nuclear test, and we strongly condemn it."

Papa Benedetto XVI ha detto addio davanti a migliaia di fedeli
Papa Benedetto XVI ha detto addio davanti a migliaia di fedeli

Benedetto XVI non è più Papa:
"Sono un pellegrino all'ultima tappa"
Atto finale di Ratzinger. Il mattinata il commosso saluto ai cardinali, con le parole al successore: "Prometto incondizionata obbedienza". Poi il trasferimento in elicottero a Castel Gandolfo mentre le campane di Roma suonano a distesa. Napolitano: "Non si allontana dall'Italia. Continueremo a sentirlo vicino"
Il pontificato di Benedetto XVI, secondo la sua rinuncia comunicata ai cardinali l'11 febbraio scorso, è terminato.

Dopo la benedizione di rito, quello del Papa è stato un commiato lontano dallo stile di grande teologo e di professore: "Vi benedico tutti,
buonanotte e grazie". La stessa semplicità che però utilizzò nel suo primissimo discorso 'Urbi et Orbi', il 19 aprile 2005, appena eletto, dal loggione di San Pietro: "Nella gioia del Signore risorto - disse allora il pontefice - fiduciosi nel suo aiuto permanente, andiamo avanti. Il Signore ci aiuterà e Maria sua Santissima Madre starà dalla nostra parte". Dopo 2872 giorni, Benedetto XVI non è più Papa.

Il suo discorso oggi è durato poco più di un minuto e mezzo, interrotto da tre lunghi applausi e molti "grazie" urlati dalla folla che si è sciolta, dopo la benedizione del pontefice e il suo ultimo saluto, in una vera ovazione. Le dimissioni sono state accettate, capite, perdonate. La sua scelta vista come atto di coraggio, non di rinuncia.

"Voi sapete - ha ripreso il Papa dopo essere stato interrotto dagli applausi - che questo giorno mio è diverso da quelli precedenti: non sono più Pontefice Sommo della Chiesa cattolica: fino alle otto di sera lo sarò ancora, poi non più. Sono semplicemente un pellegrino che inizia l'ultima tappa del suo pellegrinaggio su questa terra. Ma vorrei ancora..., Ma vorrei ancora - ha ripreso dopo essere stato interrotto dagli applausi - con il mio cuore, con il mio amore, con la mia preghiera, con la mia riflessione, con tutte le mie forze interiori, lavorare per il bene comune e il bene della Chiesa e dell'umanità. E mi sento molto appoggiato dalla vostra simpatia. Andiamo avanti con il Signore per il bene della Chiesa e del mondo. Grazie, vi impartisco adesso con tutto il cuore la mia benedizione. Sia benedetto Dio onnipotente, Padre e Figlio e Spirito Santo. Grazie, buona notte. Grazie a voi tutti".
Papa, Benedetto XVI , detto, addio, davanti , migliaia, fedeli

Solomon Islands earthquake triggers tsunami 2013
Solomon Islands earthquake triggers tsunami 2013

Tsunami alerts across the south Pacific region cancelled following a magnitude-8 earthquake. Link to video: Tsunami alerts cancelled after Solomon earthquake
A powerful earthquake off the Solomon Islands generated a tsunami up to 1.5 metres (5ft) high that damaged dozens of homes and left several people missing, presumed dead.

Authorities cancelled tsunami warnings on more distant coasts in the Pacific.

Officials on the chain of islands reported two 1.5-metre waves hitting the western side of Santa Cruz island on Wednesday, damaging 70 to 80 properties, said George Herming, a spokesman for the prime minister of the Solomon Islands. Many villagers had headed to higher ground as a precaution.

The islands' police commissioner, John Lansley, said there were unverified reports from local patrols that several people were presumed dead. "At the moment we potentially know of four, but there may of course be more."

One of those presumed dead was fishing in a canoe when the first wave hit, sweeping him out to sea, Herming said. Officials were searching for his body. Another woman was believed to have drowned when the water rushed into her village.

Four villages on Santa Cruz were hit, two of which were severely damaged, Lansley said. Other areas of the Solomons did not appear to have been seriously affected.

Officials were struggling to reach remote parts after the tsunami flooded the airstrip at the nearest airport, littering it with debris.

The tsunami formed after a magnitude-8.0 quake near the town of Lata, on Santa Cruz in Temotu, the easternmost province in the Solomons, about a three-hour flight from the capital, Honiara. Temotu has a population of around 30,000.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said a tsunami of about a metre high was measured in Lata wharf -- smaller waves were recorded in Vanuatu and New Caledonia. The centre cancelled warnings for tsunami waves further away.

Richard Dapo, a head teacher who lives inland on an island near Santa Cruz, said he had been fielding calls from families on the coast whose homes had been damaged.

"I try to tell the people living on the coastline, 'Move inland, find a higher place. Make sure to keep away from the sea. Watch out for waves,'" he said.

He said he heard that the waves had swamped some smaller islands, although he was not aware of any deaths or serious injuries.

In Honiara, the warnings prompted residents to flee for higher ground. "People are still standing on the hills outside of Honiara just looking out over the water, trying to observe if there is a wave coming in," said Herming.

Atenia Tahu, who works for the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation in Honiara, said: "People around the coast and in the capital are ringing in and trying to get information from us and the National Disaster Office and are slowly moving up to higher ground. But panic? No, no, no, people are not panicking."

Dr Rooney Jagilly, at the National Referral hospital in Honiara, said half its 200 patients were asked to leave and stay with families or friends as a precautionary measure because of the hospital's location near the shoreline. Those patients who were too immobile enough to move stayed, but the hospital remained ready to evacuate them.

.

More than 50 people were killed and thousands lost their homes in April 2007 when a magnitude-8.1 quake hit the western Solomon Islands, sending waves crashing into coastal villages.

The Solomons comprise more than 200 islands with a population of about 552,000 people. The islands lie on the "Ring of Fire" -- an arc that stretches around the Pacific rim and where about 90% of the world's quakes occur.

The US geological survey said Wednesday's quake struck 81km (50 miles) west of Lata at a depth of 28.7km.

Nurse prank call audio to Kate Middleton pregnant
Nurse prank call audio to Kate Middleton pregnant

The hospital nurse who put through a prank call to Kate Middleton's private nurse earlier this week has been found dead in a suspected suicide, the Daily Mail reports.

Jacintha Saldanha was found unconscious on Friday morning nearby King Edward VII Hospital in London, where she worked. A Scotland Yard spokesman said that the police were called and an ambulance arrived, but the woman was declared dead at the scene.

The Daily Mail speculates that "one source indicated that the woman appeared to have killed herself." A rep for Scotland Yard only stated, "The death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage."

"It is with deep sadness as I can confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff, Jacintha Saldanha," said John Lofthouse, chief executive of the hospital, said in a statement. "Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for over four years. She was an excellent nurse and well-respected and popular with all of her colleagues. We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her through this very difficult time. Jacintha was a first-class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients during her time with us. Everyone is shocked by the loss of a much loved and valued colleague. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with her family and her friends. Thank you."

This past Wednesday, the day after the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge was admitted at King Edward VII Hospital to be treated for hyperemesis gravidarum, two radio hosts from 2Day FM, a Sydney-based station, called up the hospital for an on-air prank. Hosts Mel Grieg and Michael Christian pretended to be Queen Elizabeth and the Prince of Wales, respectively, and were transferred by Saldanha to Kate's nurse.

The nurse proceeded to reveal medical details to the supposed royal relatives, including the best time for them to come visit the pregnant duchess.

Prince William and Kate Middleton return to St Andrews University for anniversary celebrations
Prince William and Kate Middleton return to St Andrews University for anniversary celebrations

The couple met while studying at St Andrews University, shared a flat in the town and were given the warmest possible welcome back.
The prince said it felt like "coming home" and received a huge cheer from a crowd of around 3,000 when he declared his alma mater "the best university in the world".
The pair made their first visit to the medieval town since graduating in 2005 to launch its 600th anniversary fundraising appeal, and were presented with an early wedding gift in the form of a scholarship created in their honour.
Addressing students, lecturers and alumni in the historic St Salvator's Quadrangle, Prince William referred to his fiancee by her full Christian name.
The prince's speech was far from stuttering. He began with an ad lib, admitting he could not help imagining "recreating Raisin Sunday" in the quad - the annual event in which students in fancy dress indulge in a foam fight before parading through town.

Kate Middleton: a princess in the making 25 Feb 2011
"This is a very special moment for Catherine and me," he added. "It feels like coming home.
"Despite being one of Europe's leading research institutions, the third oldest university in the English-speaking world and of course, far and away the best university in the world, St Andrews has that uncanny knack of feeling like home.
"And so it must have done to generations of undergraduates before us, in fact 600 years' worth."
For Kate Middleton, in a scarlet, military-style jacket and skirt - a nod towards the red undergraduate gowns - it may have been the first of many formal events to come north of the border, but she exuded royal panache throughout.
Prince William, as patron of the anniversary appeal, unveiled a plaque to launch of three years of celebrations, and they saw the Papal Bull that conferred university status on the institution in 1413.
Dr John Walden, a senior lecturer in geography who taught the prince, said it was a "fabulous coup" to have him back.
Recalling his time as a student, he added: "He made life very easy for us. He tried as hard as he could to experience a normal student programme.
"He did a very good job of that. I'm amazed that he managed to stay focused with all the obvious attention. He managed to stay focused for four years and keep his head down and get some work done."
As the rain cleared and the sun came out, the university's most famous geographer and art historian then worked the waiting crowd on a 35-minute walkabout.
By its genteel standards, the town that allowed the prince to be "just another student" let its hair down for the day.
People hung from windows waving Union and Saltire flags while the more commercially-minded shops and cafes adopted a royal theme.
Pretty Things, a stylish accessories shop, had a new slogan in its windows - "Pretty things for the princess in all of us" - while "Wills and Kate" cupcakes were selling fast at the baker Fisher and Donaldson.
For many residents it was a chance to get closer to the couple than they managed during their four years as undergraduates.
Prince William, rubbing his hands together in the chilly wind, rewarded Christopher Fraser, 70, and his wife, Mina, 68, with a chat after they had spent more than three hours waiting outside the quad.
"He was wonderful and Kate is absolutely stunning," said Mrs Fraser. Her husband added: "We used to see him around the town, but people didn't bother him. I saw him in Tesco, and my wife once stood beside him in the butcher and didn't know it was him."
The retired St Andrews University lecturer said he had "always been keen on the royal family" and the long wait was "worth every minute".
Keay Black, 50, from Pittenweem, said: "I'm here because I'm a royalist. Kate and William are such a happy story, I think they are lovely. It's so romantic how they met, it's like a big fairytale."
In their first year, they lived a few doors apart at St Salvator's hall of residence and began socialising together and playing tennis.
At the start of their second year they shared a four-bedroom Edwardian townhouse with friends, and the following year they all moved into a cottage outside town.
They initially studied history of art together, before Prince William switched to geography, and they both achieved 2:1 degrees.
There were fears when the heir to the throne chose St Andrews that he would be hounded by paparazzi but following a gentleman's agreement between the palace and Fleet Street editors, he was largely allowed to study in peace.
The only hiccup happened in 2003 when papers including the News of the World, then edited by Andy Coulson, the former Downing Street head of communications, published snatched pictures and complained that the palace was not providing enough access.

Prince Guillaume and Stephanie de Lannoy wedding  LUXEMBOURG ROYALS PRE CIVIL WEDDING
Prince Guillaume and Stephanie de Lannoy wedding LUXEMBOURG ROYALS PRE CIVIL WEDDING

Stepping out in her stunning Elie Saab wedding dress, Stephanie de Lannoy looked every inch a Princess.
Accompanied by her brother, Count Jehan de Lannoy, the 28-year-old bride walked down to the alter where Prince Guillaume stood waiting.
Elegant and poised, 28-year-old Stephanie was helped by her bridesmaid and new sister-in-law, Princess Alexandra, who looked pretty in a soft peach dress.
In the morning sunshine the cathederal looked picturesque and crowds of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of their new hereditary Grand Duchess.
Royal guests from far and wide made the trip to Luxembourg, and began arriving around 10am on the red carpet leading to the grand cathedral's entrance
The Earl and Countess of Wessex flew the flag for Britain, with Sophie wearing a monochrome Emilia Wickstead dress and a black hat by milliner Jane Taylor.

Danish Prince Frederick was accompanied by his glamorous wife Mary, who sported a stylish grey hat and burgundy peplum dress.

Also gracing the royal red carpet were Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit of Norway, Spanish Prince Felipe and his wife Letizia and the Netherland's Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima, who dazzled at the previous night's gala dinner.

Xavier Bettel, Mayor of the City of Luxembourg, looked suave as he entered the catherdral for the service which featured more pomp and grandeur that the civil ceremony he conducted on Friday.

Cheers erupted from the crowd as Prince Guillaume, 30, and his mother stepped out of the their car, knowing they were minutes from seeing Stephanie's eagerly anticipated dress.

Europe's newest Princess emerged looking radiant and compossed, sporting a tiara from her own family's collection.
The bride's attendants were dressed in the traditional Nassau colours of blue and orange.

Six-year-old Prince Gabriel, who is the son of Guillaume's brother Louis and his wife Tessy, was chosen to act as a page boy, as was Stephanie's nephew: Lancelot de le Court.

The ceremony, which was conducted in a mixture of French and English, featured a minute's silence out of respect for Stephanie's late mother Countess Alix de Lannoy.
After saying their vows in Luxembourgish, a rousing rendition of Handel's Messiah played as the royal couple signed their marriage certificate.

Visibily more relaxed, Guillaume and Stephanie passed under a traditional saber arch, leaving the cathedral arm-in-arm as they made their way to the Grand Ducal Palace.

Dog Nurses Tiger Cubs Abandoned By Mother
Dog Nurses Tiger Cubs Abandoned By Mother

This video not only takes a glimpse at some extremely rare tiger cubs, but an unlikely surrogate taking care of them, as well.
The cubs were born in China, and when rejected by their mother, the wildlife preserve brought in a dog to help nurse their hungry baby appetites. The quadruplets include one white tiger and three snow tigers, which are a white-haired, blue-eyed variation of the white tiger, and are even more rare than regular white tigers. MSNBC reports that only around 200 snow tigers are estimated to remain in the world.
Additionally, the quadruplets themselves are somewhat of an anomaly, as tiger litters usually only consist of one or two cubs.

Usain Bolt norske besøk usain bolt Norway

GARDERMOEN/OSLO (VG Nett) Klokken 20.34 søndag kveld landet verdens raskeste mann, Usain Bolt, i Norge - klar for Bislett Games torsdag og DJ-rollen på festen senere på kvelden.

VG Nett følger
Friidrett
Med rundt 15 norske journalister på plass kom Bolt ut i ankomsthallen på Gardermoen søndag kveld. Han var kledd i svart fra topp til tå, hadde på seg ryggsekk og bar på en liten matpakke.

Han ble selvsagt møtt av en sikkerhetsvakt og stjernefikser Steinar Hoen som har betalt Bolt 1,5 millioner for å løpe 100 meter torsdag. Bolt kom sammen med blant annet manager Ricky Simms, en kompis fra Jamaica og en fysioterapeut fra London.

Egne plater

25-åringen, som raskt ble omringet av pressefolk og tilfeldige passasjerer som oppdaget at Bolt hadde kommet til landet, sørget for å skape småkaotiske tilstander før han ga et kort intervju til TV 2 etter å plassert bagasjen sin i en gul og grønn Bislett Games-bil prydet med bilder av nettopp ham selv.

Bolt gikk så nedover mot flytoget, hvor han fikk sin egen vogn boltet og låst for andre passasjerer, og tekstet ivrig på sin smarttelefon på vei ned rulletrappa.

- Jeg vil foretrekke varmt vær torsdag, men det er ikke avgjørende. Jeg har løpt bra i dårlig vær før, som i Oslo i fjor. Så lenge det ikke blir kuldegrader skal det gå bra, sier Bolt til VG Nett på flytoget inn mot hovedstaden.

- Powell løp på 9,72 her for to år siden med ulovlige 2,1 sek/m medvind. Kan du klare 9,6-tallet etter det du gjorde i Roma sist fredag (9,76)?

- Jeg bryr meg ikke om tider og kan ikke gi deg noe svar på det. Akkurat nå er jeg opptatt av det tekniske, og å løpe fort. Og så får vi se hvor fort det går, sier Bolt.

Jamaicaneren fortalte også at han har med seg egne plater for eventuelt å snurre skiver på festen etter løpet torsdag, slik han gjorde i fjor. Bolt filmet sin egen mottakelseskomité på vei ombord i toget og virket å være i strålende humør.

Jasman (10) var en av flere nysgjerrige tilskuere som hadde møtt opp på flyplassen for å ta imot superstjernen.

- Hvorfor? Fordi jeg er glad i ham, sier Jasman hinkende på krykker - rett før dørene åpnet seg for verdens raskeste mann i ankomsthallen.

Det er ett år siden Usain Bolt besøkte Norge for første gang - det endte med seier på 200-meteren under Bislett Games. 20.34 i kveld var han tilbake på norsk jord - fire dager før det braker løs på Bislett.

Før helgen satte Bolt årsbeste i verden med tiden 9,76 under Diamond League-stevnet i Roma. Det er den fjerde beste 100-meteren gjennom tidene.
Når Bolt skal i aksjon på Bislett er det duket for en real superduell, når han står side om side med Asafa Powell. Den norske yndlingen Jaysuma Saidy Ndure skal ikke løpe på 100-meteren på Bislett.

Bolt-feber

Da Usain Bolt besøkte Norge i fjor herjet det en aldri så liten Bolt-feber i byen. Ikke på nivå med Justin Bieber-feberen, men verdens raskeste mann er helt klart en populær mann i Norge.

Mange fikk møte sin store helt da han delte ut premier og tok lagbilder under bedriftsløpet Race Against Malaria, og blomsterpikene på Bislett fikk stjålet til seg en klem fra Bolt. Også langrennsesset Petter Northug fikk møte verdens raskeste mann.

- Han er jo på en måte et forbilde. Han er en av de største i verden. For en som driver med en liten idrett som langrenn, så er det stort å møte en verdensstjerne som han. Han er kjent uansett hvor han reiser i verden, sa Northug etter Bolt-møtet.

Bolt var ikke bare kongen på Bislett - bare timer etter at han hadde løpt inn til årsbeste i verden på 200 meter, var jamaicaneren DJ i VIP-teltet for Bislett Games.

tsunami dock from Japan to oregon beach USA coast Officials worry about creatures on tsunami dock
tsunami dock from Japan to oregon beach USA coast Officials worry about creatures on tsunami dock

When the tsunami hit the northern coast of Japan last year, the waves ripped four dock floats the size of freight train boxcars from their pilings in the fishing port of Misawa and turned them over to the whims of wind and currents.
One floated up on a nearby island. Two have not been seen again. But one made an incredible journey across 5,000 miles of ocean that ended this week on a popular Oregon beach.
Along for the ride were hundreds of millions of individual organisms, including a tiny species of crab, a species of algae, and a little starfish all native to Japan that have scientists concerned if they get a chance to spread out on the West Coast.
"This is a very clear threat," said John Chapman, a research scientist at Oregon State University's Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Ore., where the dock washed up early Tuesday. "...It's incredibly difficult to predict what will happen next."
State officials organized a group of volunteers Thursday to scrape the dock clean of marine organisms, bag them and dispose of them inland, said Chris Havel, spokesman for the state Department of Parks and Recreation, which is overseeing the fate of the dock. Biologists have identified one species as a marine algae, known as wakame, that is native to Japan and has established in Southern California, but has not yet been seen in Oregon, he said.
While scientists expect much of the floating debris to follow the currents to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an accumulation of millions of tons of small bits of plastic floating in the northern Pacific, tsunami debris that can catch the wind is making its way to North America. In recent weeks, a soccer ball washed up in Alaska, and a Harley Davidson motorcycle in a shipping container was found in British Columbia, Canada.
How the dock float — 165 tons of concrete and steel measuring 66 feet long, 19 feet wide and 7 feet high — turned up on Agate Beach, a mile north of Newport, was probably determined within sight of land in Japan, said Jan Hafner, a computer programmer in the University of Hawaii's International Pacific Research Center, which is tracking the 1.5 million tons of tsunami debris likely floating across the Pacific.
That's where the winds, currents and tides are most variable, due to changes in the coastline and the features of the land, even for two objects a few yards apart, he said. Once the dock float got into the ocean, it was pushed steadily by the prevailing westerly winds, and the North Pacific current
"If you have leaves falling from a tree ... one leaf will be moving in a slightly different direction from another one," Hafner said. "Over time, the differences get bigger and bigger and bigger.
"Something similar is happening on the ocean."
After it came ashore, the Japanese consulate was able to track down the origin of the dock float from a plaque bolted to it commemorating its installation in June 2008. Deputy Consul Hirofumi Murabayashi said Wednesday from Portland, Ore., that it was one of four owned by Aomori Prefecture that broke loose from the port of Misawa on the northern tip of the main island during the tsunami.

Akihisa Sato, an engineer with Zeniya Kaiyo Service, the dock's Tokyo-based manufacturer, said the docks were used for loading fish onto trucks. One of them turned up several weeks later on an island south of Misawa, but the other two remain missing.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., called on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to redouble its efforts to track the debris, saying something as big as the dock could pose a danger to ships at sea.

NOAA's tsunami marine debris coordinator, Ruth Yender, said if the Pacific were shrunk to the size of a football field, something like the dock would be the size of a human hair, making it very difficult to monitor, even from satellites.
The dock tested negative for radiation, which was to be expected if the dock broke loose before the nuclear power plant accident triggered by the waves, said Havel.
Chapman said the dock float was covered with masses of algae, kelp, barnacles, mussels and other organisms. One square-foot area weighed nine pounds.
"This is a whole, intact, very diverse community that floated across from Japan to here," he said. "That doesn't happen with a log or a thrown-out tire. I've never seen anything like this."
Of particular concern was a small crab that has run wild on the East Coast, but not shown up yet on the West Coast, and a species of algae that has hit Southern California, but not Oregon. The starfish, measuring about three inches across, also appears to be new to U.S. shores.
"It's almost certainly true that most of the things on this have not been introduced to this coast yet," Chapman said. "We're going to see more of these things coming."
Tom Cleveland, a housekeeping supervisor at nearby beachfront condominiums, said people curious to see it have been jamming up traffic at a beach parking lot.

Kate the scarlet lady the Duchess of Cambridge's red-hot looks Prince William and Kate Middleton

We track the DoC's red outfits from her days as Kate Middleton to the Diamond Jubilee celebrations
Duchess of Cambridge Kate looked red-hot on the river yesterday despite the miserable weather.
While the Queen looked regal in white, Kate's red long-sleeved dress by Alexander McQueen showed the vibrancy of the younger generation of royals at the Diamond Jubilee pageant .
Kate carried the colour theme on with a scarlet hat by Sylvia Fletcher, of royal milliner James Lock & Co, and carried a red satin clutch bag.
She even had a red umbrella to hand when it came to disembarking from the Spirt of Chartwell at the end of the pageant.
When Kate went to the military academy in December 2006 for Prince William's passing out parade it was her most high-profile public appearance to date.
She wore a knee-length red coat with black leather gloves, knee length black suede boots, black opaque tights and a large black straw hat. She held her black clutch bag in front of her in the style which has become so familiar over the last year.

Celebrity style editor Gilly Ferguson's red-hot rating: 6/10
"Red has been a go-to hue for Kate ever since she stepped in to the spotlight, usually punctuated with black accents be it a clutch bag or, more recently, a wide waisted belt. Regal, confident and one colour that suits all, it's no wonder Kate's clung on to her signature colour."

Back in winter, Kate returned to a red coat with black accessories when she and William travelled to Denmark to visit a UNICEF supply centre.
This time the coat was by LK Bennett, in a style called Ami, although she swapped the belt it came with for one thought to be from another of her high street favourites, Reiss.
Her striking outfit caught the attention - and the royal couple's visit helped boost donations to the fund combating the famine in East Africa, with £1million donated in 24 hours .

TERREMOTO IN DIRETTA TV ITALIA 03 06 2012

Prima e dopo il 20 maggio. Prima e dopo le scosse. Il prima, nel calendario di quel pezzo di mondo colpito dal terremoto, era segnato dall'ansia sana degli esami incombenti; dal timore per scrutini finali, saggi, o interrogazioni decisive per evitare, magari, un «debito» a settembre. Il dopo, per 50mila studenti, sono notti di paura e giorni di attesa. La ricerca di una normalità messa continuamente in discussione dai fremiti della terra. Una «normalità», almeno per quanto riguarda l'esame di Stato, che è ora obiettivo primario della Regione Emilia Romagna. Si attende un decreto del Miur, a sancirla definitivamente. Un provvedimento con cui il prossimo Consiglio dei ministri, mercoledì, dovrebbe autorizzare l'Ufficio scolastico regionale a valutare caso per caso, in base alla situazione degli edifici, come svolgere le prove.
«MODELLO L'AQUILA» - Lo ha spiegato il sottosegretario all'Istruzione Elena Ugolini, visitando lunedì il territorio colpito dal sisma. «Con il decreto - ha detto - si getterà la base normativa per consentire alle istituzioni scolastiche più in difficoltà di decidere se fare solo gli orali, seguendo il "modello L'Aquila" o se, invece, svolgere tutte le prove come da calendario ufficiale».
GLI ESAMI - Per ora diverse le ipotesi in campo. Amministratori e tecnici stanno cercando di individuare le sedi agibili per scrutini ed esami di terza media, qualifica e maturità: «Pensiamo di spostare gli studenti delle scuole danneggiate negli edifici vicini, magari a Bologna e Ferrara; dove invece la zona colpita è troppo ampia, verranno utilizzati dei container che saranno richiesti alla Protezione civile», ha detto Stefano Versari, vice direttore dell'Ufficio Scolastico regionale. Gli studenti di Mirandola, devastata dal terremoto del 29 maggio, faranno probabilmente solo esami orali (400 i ragazzi delle scuole superiori, 200 quelli delle medie), sotto un tendone della protezione civile. «Anche per una questione di sicurezza, ha detto il sindaco Maino Benatti: con gli orali si possono esaminare gruppi ristretti di studenti; gli scritti richiedono spazi più ampi e concentrazioni di ragazzi maggiori».
A Novi di Modena, come in altre città, si cercano container in cui spostare le segreterie che saranno un riferimento per i genitori: un modo per far capire che la scuola è presente anche solo per dare informazioni.
LE SCUOLE LESIONATE - Lunedì c'è stata anche una riunione all'Ufficio scolastico per «fare il punto»: sono quasi 270 le scuole totalmente o parzialmente inagibili in Emilia-Romagna, e verifiche sono tuttora in corso. «La situazione è in continua evoluzione, ha detto l'assessore Patrizio Bianchi. Sottolineando come la seconda scossa, quella del 29 maggio, ha prodotto sull'edilizia scolastica tre volte il danno della precedente. «Squadre di tecnici di quattro università regionali stanno facendo sopralluoghi per valutare il da farsi edificio per edificio. La ricostruzione dovrà seguire criteri antisismici e di sostenibilità ambientale. Al momento la priorità è individuare i locali dove svolgere gli scrutini e gli esami. Vogliamo garantire ai ragazzi una conclusione adeguata dell'anno scolastico».
«Per fortuna - ha ricordato ancora Ugolini, che è stata preside a Bologna - nessun docente o ragazzo si è fatto un graffio. Anche grazie al fatto che i dirigenti scolastici avevano fatto fare con grande scrupolo le prove di evacuazione. E anche se martedì i bambini erano a scuola, nessuno è rimasto ferito». Le ferite riguardano le strutture delle scuole che, però, sono sottoposte a «costante monitoraggio.
SCRUTINI - Situazione «sotto controllo» per quanto riguarda gli scrutini: «Sono stati recuperati tutti i registri», conferma il sottosegretario Ugolini. «Comuni e frazioni stanno individuando i locali dove lavorare, laddove la scuola non sia agibile. La situazione è a macchia di leopardo».

A SETTEMBRE TUTTI SUI BANCHI - Gli obiettivi a lungo termine: il ministero sta mettendo in campo un piano di intervento che prevede il monitoraggio costante della situazione. «La scuola è centrale nella nostra comunità -- dice Bianchi --. Noi, tutti insieme, il 17 settembre vogliamo i nostri figli sui banchi. Stiamo verificando con gli esperti la possibilità di realizzare le nostre nuove scuole, non con strutture provvisorie, ma con edifici di alta qualità e con tempi ridotti di realizzazione. Se ne è parlato in un incontro nei giorni scorsi con i commissari europei Tajani e Hahn: è importante sostenere la progettualità di green schools e costruzioni antisismiche

Cinquanta bambini provenienti dalle province di Modena e Ferrara saranno ospitati gratuitamente ad agosto nell'isola di Favignana. Qui saranno seguiti dai volontari del comune e di Legambiente, che hanno promosso questa iniziativa. "Dopo il terremoto, ci siamo messi subito in contatto con i nostri circoli dell'Emilia - dice Michele Rallo di Legambiente Egadi - Abbiamo dato la massima disponibilità sia dal punto di vista delle risorse umane che su quello della raccolta fondi. Ieri, consultandoci con gli amministratori delle province piu' colpite dal terremoto, abbiamo pensato che il modo migliore per aiutare le famiglie sfollate fosse quella di dare ai bambini la possibilita' di trascorrere l'estate al mare, giocando e divertendosi. E il Comune di Favignana si è messo subito a disposizione".

Rovigo, 29 maggio 2012 - Il terremoto che stamattina ha sconvolto per la seconda volta in pochi giorni l'Emilia ha falciato la vita di un lavoratore polesano. Il corpo di un operaio di Castelmassa (Rovigo), Paolo Siclari, 37 anni, originario di Messina, è stato recuperato tra le macerie del capannone della Haemotronic, a Medolla (Modena). Lo ha confermato il sindaco della località polesana, Eugenio Boschini. Siclari era padre di due figli.

Miracolosamente illeso un concittadino di Siclari che lavora nella stessa azienda, Alessandro Sghembari. Al momento della scossa si era recato al bagno, una circostanza che gli ha probabilmente salvato la vita.

E' stato dimesso dall'ospedale di Trecenta l'operaio colpito questa mattina alle 9 dal crollo di un cornicione della chiesa di Salara. Il ferito Andrea Ballaben, 51 anni risiede a Calto.
"Mi trovavo sull'impalcatura per iniziare i lavori di messa in sicurezza della chiesa, già lesionata dal sisma di nove giorni fa, quando ho sentito le sedie cadere, pensavo fosse il mio collega che le aveva urtate. Poi hanno iniziato a cadere pezzi di intonaco e sono scappato. Mi ha colpito alla testa un pezzo di cornicione, sono caduto ma sono uscito con le mie gambe. Per fortuna è andata bene, pericolo scampato".

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Australian official visit
Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Australian official visit

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Tuesday expressed her satisfaction with the official visit to Australia as Canberra has agreed to consider lifting its ban on the importation of Thai chicken meat and frozen shrimp as requested.

The Thai premier was visiting Australia May 26-29 as a guest of the Australian government during the celebration the 60th anniversary of the two nations establishment of diplomatic relations.
She said that the overall trip was considered successful as the two premiers signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) on Cooperation in Education and Training and a Young Political Leaders' Exchange Program to further strengthen ties between the two peoples.

Ms Yingluck said during the discussion with her Australian counterpart Julia Gillard, the Australian prime minister agreed to consider lifting the ban on Thai chicken meat and frozen shrimp and would consider importing more rice from Thailand.

The Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) was signed on July 5, 2004 and came into effect on Jan 1, 2005 which gradually increased bilateral trade and investment between the two countries, she said.

TAFTA is set to grow 20 per cent by 2016, she said, adding that the countries discussed ways to reduce obstacles under TAFTA such as tax barriers and will have a joint committee meeting to further consider the matter in June.

Ms Yingluck said that meeting between the two women leaders could provide an advantage in helping strengthen bilateral ties.

During the visit, Ms Yingluck said, she has launched campaign "Thailand: Kitchen to the World" to publicise food products and raise awareness concerning food security among the population.

"Thailand is an agricultural producer whose products are qualified by competitive pricing," she said. "This helps address the food security problem. Its significance increases when the world faces growing challenges such as climate change, and natural disasters which sometimes leads to food shortages.

Ms Yingluck has later met New South Wales Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner and discussed a wide range of cooperation. She also thanked Sydney residents who helped Thailand during the massive flood last year.

The Thai premier exchanged ideas with Ms Gillard on responding to natural disasters in the future.

Ms Yingluck thanked Mr Stoner who is also Minister for Trade and Investment and Minister for Regional Infrastructure and Service of New South Wales for the effort to take care of Thai community in New South Wales.

Some 40,000 Thais living in New South Wales and there could be a good opportunity to exchange culture between Thais and Australians, she said.

Ms Yingluck was to leave Australia on Tuesday and was scheduled to arrive Thailand in the evening.

Rajoy No va a haber ningún rescate de la banca española
Rajoy No va a haber ningún rescate de la banca española

El presidente del Gobierno, Mariano Rajoy, ha sido absolutamente contundente al negar, en rueda de prensa, que la banca española vaya a tener que acudir al fondo de rescate de la UE. "No va a haber ningún rescate de la banca española", ha afirmado Rajoy, quien ha defendido la reestructuración bancaria y el "ejercicio de transparencia" hecho con la nacionalización de Bankia.

Sobre las exigencias de responsabilidades en el caso de Bankia, Rajoy ha dicho que "no es la primera vez que se mete dinero público en una entidad financiera". Tras referirse a Caixa Cataluña o Caja Castilla-La Mancha, ha rechazado cualquier comisión de investigación y se ha remitido a la subcomisión creada al efecto en la comisión de Economía del Congreso durante la anterior legislatura.

Mariano Rajoy ha ofrecido una rueda de prensa tras la reunión del Comité Ejecutivo Nacional del PP. Se trata de la primera comparecencia ante los medios de comunicación en la sede del PP desde que accedió a la presidencia del Gobierno.

Bankia ha centrado varias de las preguntas de los periodistas. Rajoy ha afirmado que la situación de esta entidad no ha influido en el repunte de la prima de riesgo y que el objetivo de nacionalizar el banco ha sido "garantizar a los depositarios sus ahorros" y "recuperar la confianza de los inversores".

Sobre el incremento de la prima de riesgo de España, que este lunes ha superado los 500 puntos, Rajoy ha afirmado se debe principalmente a las "dudas importantes" que existen en la Unión Europa sobre Grecia. A su juicio, la crisis financiera en Bankia no influye "absolutamente para nada" en la prima de riesgo.

'Una decisión difícil'

Rajoy ha asegurado que la alternativa a la nacionalización de Bankia "era la quiebra" de la entidad y que "las entidades financieras no pueden caer porque caería el país". Según ha dicho, la entrada del Estado en Bankia ha sido "una decisión difícil" adoptada en el marco de un proceso general de recapitalización del sistema financiero español para que fluya el crédito y la inversión y se reactive el empleo.

"Quizá hubiera sido más cómodo no hacer nada y mirar para otro lado, pero lo mejor cuando la situación es difícil es decir la verdad y a partir de ahí empezar a funcionar", defendió el líder del Ejecutivo.

Durante la rueda de prensa, Rajoy ha reclamado también a la UE "más integración fiscal, monetaria y política". "El Gobierno va a prestar mucha atención con todo lo relacionado con el acta del mercado único", ha asegurado y ha subrayado que la UE "tiene que disipar cualquier duda sobre el euro" y expresar que es un "proyecto irreversible".

A pesar de la rotundidad con la que el presidente del Gobierno ha negado que los bancos españoles vayan a tener que ser rescatados con fondos europeos, el ministro de Exteriores, José Manuel García Margallo, se ha pronunciado sobre este tema de forma menos segura este lunes. "Lo veremos cuando tengamos el diagnóstico", ha afirmado. Según ha dicho todavía, "no está determinado"

Queen elizabeth II guarded by Canadian Mounties today
Queen elizabeth II guarded by Canadian Mounties today

The Queen will be guarded by non-British, non-military force for the first time ever today, as the traditional Household Cavalry step aside for Stetson-wearing Canadian Mounties.
The 15-strong delegation Royal Canadian Mounted Police have undergone rigorous training by a senior member of the Household Cavalry in preparation for their prestigious task.
Wearing their distinctive wide-brimmed Stetson hats, the Mounties will wear their navy blue uniform and ties and carry lances instead of swords in their right hands. They will perform the guard on Wednesday and Friday this week.
It is the first time a foreign, non-military force has ever been given the honour of guarding the Queen.
The move, granted with special permission in the run-up to the Diamond Jubilee festivities, is intended to celebrate the Commonwealth and commemorates the long, close relationship between the British monarchy and the Canadian Mounted Police.
In 1904, the force was granted by the prefix title "Royal" by the Queen's great-grandfather, King Edward VII, in recognition of their dedicated service to the Empire.
The Queen's father King George VI also signalled his admiration and support for the Mounties, inviting them to Britain in 1936.
They will now form the Queen's personal guard, riding down the Mall at 11 o'clock for the Changing of the Queen's Life Guard ceremony with the Household Cavalry.
The ceremony dates back to the 17th Century, when personal bodyguards would man the ceremonial entrance to the Royal residence.
Today, the Queen's Life Guard are a popular attraction for tourists, with many taking photographs of a mounted Trooper rigidly sitting on his horse in a sentry box on Whitehall.
The guard is normally made up of 15 soldiers, including a Captain when Her Majesty is in residence, and lasts for 24 hours.
At 11 o'clock everyday, the off-coming guard are replaced by the new guard during a half hour ceremonial ritual on Horse Guards Parade ground.
Regimental Corporal Major Warren Brown, 43, the Household Cavalry's senior soldier, said: "I flew out to Canada to teach the Mounties how to do the changing of the guard and I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly they all picked it up.
"It's not easy learning someone else's drills, commands and ceremonies when you haven't had hundreds of years of that tradition passed down to you.
"They will be using our Cavalry Black horses and they can be quite a handful if you are not used to riding horses as huge as ours.
"Thankfully, they are all excellent horsemen and women, and used to riding in busy urban environments."

Rafael Nadal is the latest personality to be recognized with a wax replica by Madame Tussauds, as the museum unveiled the life-size statue Wednesday at Regents Park in London, ATP reported.
A team of 20 stylists, sculptors, and artists worked together to complete the figure in four months. The portrayal of Nadal showcases the 25 year old preparing to carve a backhand slice.
The Spaniard will look to win a record-breaking seventh Roland Garros trophy, after tying Bjorn Borg last year with victory over Roger Federer in the Paris final. Nadal recently defeated Novak Djokovic to win his sixth Rome title.

Jaguar XJ Ultimate Edition Unveiled. Packed with Technology
Jaguar XJ Ultimate Edition Unveiled. Packed with Technology

Jaguar has pulled off the wraps on its latest automobile. The Jaguar XJ Ultimate Edition is claimed to be designed to be the pinnacle of the Jaguar XJ range of cars. And while you can expect any Jaguar to be simply amazing, the technological features that come with this car are just out of this world. The features which are highlighted in the luxurious yet spaceshippy car are a champagne cooler with two handcrafted Goran Hongell champagne glasses, a heated steering wheel, Apple's iPads embedded in the seats for the rear passengers and the coup de gras, a whopping 20-speaker surround system custom-made by Meridian Audio.
With the 20 speakers supported by 15-channels of amplification, Meridian have used what the company calls "Trifield" technology to create the illusion that every occupant in the car including the driver is listening to music that is directly aimed at them. On top of the 20 speakers, the system also incorporates two subwoofers which complete a virtual 7.1 surround sound system that can put out a mind-blowing 825 watts of audio. With regards to the iPads resting in the rear part of the front seats, there are multimedia related features preloaded on the iPad that are integrated with the car. For now, there has been no news on the pricing or release date of the technologically advanced car but when it does hit the market, we can all be sure that it, like all Jaguars will definitely be at the higher end of the pricing spectrum.

Queen Elizabeth II Royal Academy graduation 2012
Queen Elizabeth II Royal Academy graduation 2012

Still regarded as the bastion of secondary school education Queen's Royal College is the oldest secondary school in Trinidad and Tobago, referred to for short as "QRC", or "The College" by past alumni. The college is noted for its famous German Renaissance architecture and tradition of multi-faceted education which continues to produce some of Trinidad and Tobago's leading thinkers, athletes, artists and politicians.
The origin of QRC goes back to the Stuart Grammar School, at the corner of Duke and Edward Street. In 1859, when a new "collegiate school" was being contemplated, Mr. Stuart was invited by the government to be part of the enterprise.
The Queen's Collegiate School opened later that year opposite what is now Lord Harris Square, then known as Billiards Orchard.
The intention was, as Governor Arthur Hamilton-Gordon told the Legislative Council in 1870, "that its advantages should be open to those of every race and every religion, and that the education given should be of a decidedly superior character."
In 1870, the school became the Queen's Royal College and was housed in the supper room of the Prince's Building.
When the Government Farm moved from St Clair in 1899, part of the land was reserved as a new home for QRC through the intervention of acting Governor Sir Courtney Knollys.
The school, referred to in those days as Royal College, had 120 pupils, who did not wear a uniform but had to wear a hat or cap bearing the college crest. They learned algebra, geometry, arithmetic, Latin, French, English, geography, history and Greek or Spanish.
Today in Queen's Royal College uniforms are worn, as at almost all government schools, and QRC projects and involvements usually involve a blue theme, due to the well known uniform of blue shirtjack and long khaki pants. In 2009, the school implemented a new uniform for formal occasions as existed in the past.

Charles successfully learned to scratch and fade a record as a deejay instructor let him try his hand at the turntables, according to the Telegraph.
It wasn't the first time the royal showed his lighter, more fun side though. Earlier this month, the 63-year-old prince gave TV weather forecasters across the world a run for their money when he presented the weather forecast in Scotland during a visit to BBC headquarters in Glasgow.
In the past, Charles has also shown an appreciation for music — as well as a love for dancing.
In April 2011, the London Evening Standard reported that he and Kate Middleton, the wife of his eldest son, Prince William, had collaborated on the music for the upcoming nuptials by swapping iPods.
Also that month, a video of Charles break-dancing with young people in the 1980s made waves after it popped up on YouTube.
