Hercule the Parrot helps solve murder case

A parrot has helped Indian police solve its owner's murder.

Hercule had kept his mouth wisely shut during the murder, only to open it later to reveal the truth.

Wondering if I haven't misunderstood this: heard the EOT (GNTO) office on Kef is being transferred to Patras.
Seems the news is correct, but a one-year extension has been granted.

The world’s largest aircraft which can stay airborne for up to three weeks and will be vital in delivering several tonnes of humanitarian aid has been unveiled.

The 300ft (91m) ship is part plane, airship and helicopter, and there are plans to eventually use it to transport 50 tonnes of freight.

It is environmentally friendly and will be used for surveillance and communications as well as delivering aid.

Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of Iron Maiden, compared the ship to Thunderbird 2 and described the craft as a “game changer.”

Farage says the main parties did nothing to stop Romanian and Bulgaria being open to the UK from January.

But it is not Romania and Bulgaria he is primarily worried about, he says. He is worried about immigration from countries like Greece, where the impact of the eurozone crisis could drive people to leave.

A man is suing McDonald’s for $1.5m in a dispute allegedly sparked off by the fact that he was given only one napkin with his meal.

Webster Lucas claimed he is “unable to work” due to the “emotional distress” caused by the incident at the outlet in Pacoima, California, TMZ reported.
