  • Cate Blanchett Shuts Down Interview

    If there’s anything a reporter should know by now, it’s that you don’t mess with Cate Blanchett. Unfortunately it seems Jonathon Hyla from The Project didn’t get the memo. After trying (and failing) to engage Blanchett in idle chit chat (he jokingly asked Blanchett if they could share a beer to break the ice) he was told off by the actress, who joked that one of them had to do their jobs.

  • The Latest: A320 pilot describes safeguards against lockout

    A pilot who flew the A320 for six years said the cockpit has safeguards in case one pilot inside becomes incapacitated while the other is outside. Normally, he said, someone trying to get inside the cockpit requests access and a camera feed lets the pilot decide whether to accept or specifically deny access. If, however, the person in the cockpit denies access, the door remains locked, said the pilot.

  • Superhighway from Europe to the US planned

    According to a report in The Siberian Times, Russian Railways president Vladimir Yakunin has proposed a very ambitious plan for a massive trans-Siberian highway that would link his country's eastern border with the U.S. state of Alaska, crossing a narrow stretch of the Bering Sea that separates Asia and North America. Dubbed the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development (TEPR), the project calls for a major roadway to be constructed alongside the existing Trans-Siberian Railway, stretching about 20,000 kilometres. Oil and gas pipes would run alongside the highway, and plans have been mooted already for a rail tunnel connecting the far flung Russian region of Chukotka - where football tycoon Roman Abramovich once served as governor - and Alaska.
