Russia's and America's New Stealth Fighters Share This Big Problem

Top Stories - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 10:33

While the PAK-FA will likely be a formidable warplane, it is uncertain how many fully operation jets Russia will be able buy even after it completes engine development work for the T-50. Russia has completed the first phase of government flight-testing for its Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA fifth-generation fighter. Sukhoi is expected to complete developmental work on an initial operational version of the new stealth fighter in 2019, but the current iteration of the jet will only see a limited production run.

Rylo is a 360-degree video camera that magically follows the action

Macworld - Tue, 10/31/2017 - 10:00

Huh, I’ve never seen that before. That was my reaction when I first saw the new 360-degree Rylo video camera in action. 360-degree cameras are nothing new, and I’m rarely impressed by the VR content produced by these devices. But with a handful of crafty software tricks, Rylo ($499 at Rylo.com) rises well above the fray.

Rylo is small enough to sit in the palm of your hand, and comes with dual 4K video cameras (though when you opt for a traditional video window instead of a 360-degree experience, your resolution will be 1080p.) Each lens captures a 208-degree field of view, and has an f/2.8 fixed aperture.

Cotswolds public schoolboy &apos;who plotted to kill Putin&apos; injured and wife killed in Ukraine ambush shooting

Top Stories - Mon, 10/30/2017 - 20:09

Aformer public school boy convicted of plotting to assassinate Vladimir Putin has been injured and his wife killed in an ambush shooting outside Kiev. Adam Osmaev, 36, a who was born in what is now Russia's Chechnya republic and studied at Wycliffe College in the Cotswolds, was injured but will live after his car was hit with gunshots from the bushes at a railroad crossing in the Kiev region, according to Anton Geraschenko, MP and aide to Ukraine's interior minister.  He had fought for Kiev as a battalion commander in the conflict with Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. Mr Osmaev's wife Amina Okueva was killed in the attack, however, Mr Geraschenko said. “The best commemoration of her will be a just reprisal against all those who were involved in this horrible murder,” he wrote in a Facebook post. Amina Okueva was shot dead in the ambush The attack follows a scooter bombing that injured a nationalist MP and killed two others in Kiev last week.  Monday's attack was the latest in at least nine high-profile assassination attempts in Ukraine in the past 15 months, including a June attempt on the lives of Mr Osmaev and Ms Okueva. In that incident, a Chechen man posing as a correspondent for French newspaper Le Monde opened a red gift box to reveal a pistol. Mr Osmaev was shot while trying to grab the weapon, but Ms Okueva drew her own pistol, shot the assassin dead and treated her husband's wounds until help arrived. Adam Osmaev fought for Ukraine against Russian-backed separatists Credit: AFP Mr Osmaev came to prominence when he was arrested in Ukraine in 2012 and charged with plotting to blow up Mr Putin's motorcade. The European Court of Human Rights prevented his extradition to Russia, but he was imprisoned for three years for illegal possession of explosives and forgery. The son of a high-ranking official, Mr Osmaev and his family had fled Chechnya after a falling out with Ramzan Kadyrov, who is now head of the republic.
