A passenger plane that skidded off a Turkish airport runway has been lifted away from its precarious position on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Black Sea. Two enormous cranes were used to hoist the Pegasus Airlines plane which ran into trouble moments after landing at Trabzon Airport on Turkey’s northeast coastline on 13 January. The 162 passengers on board the Boeing 737-800 miraculously escaped without any serious injuries after the out-of-control plane suddenly veered off an icy runway and hurtled down the side of the cliff.

The pilot and co-pilot, who both passed breathalyser tests after an investigation into the incident was launched, reported a sudden ‘engine surge’ after landing.

Terrified passenger Fatma Gördü told Turkish media the plane began suddenly shaking on the runway.

There was panic. People shouting, screaming,” she said. Pegasus Airlines said in a statement that Flight PC 8622 “had a runway excursion incident during landing”. Another passenger, Yüksel Gördü, said it was “a miracle” that they survived the ordeal.

A Bump In The Road: Can Sonys new year live up to its fantastic 2017 in the AAA space?

Added: 20.01.2018 6:40 | 0 views | 0 comments

2017 was something of a landmark year for the PlayStation 4s life cycle. Though the Nintendo Switch gave Sony some ardent competition and deservedly stole back much of the attention, the PS4s exclusive output was notably excellent. First Party studios like Guerrilla Games and Naughty Dog pumped out great work respectably, while Sonys Japanese development partners delivered incredible offerings like Yakuza 0, Nioh and Nier: Automata. Some of these titles would see release on PC, but the PlayStation platform nevertheless stood out in terms of the sheer variety of its exclusive content in the console market. Can they do it again?

YouTube deleting Tide Pod challenge videos in bid to stem dangerous detergent-eating craze 

Added: 20.01.2018 6:07 | 0 views | 0 comments


YouTube has said it is deleting any videos showing the Tide Pod challenge in an effort to stem the dangerous detergent-eating craze among US teens. The potentially health-damaging fad has seen teenagers daring each other to film themselves biting into washing machine capsules and then upload the results online, with some videos garnering hundreds of thousands of views. The trend has provoked warnings from health bodies in America, who say ingesting the capsules could have “serious health implications”, and has also prompted an awareness campaign featuring an NFL star. Today YouTube said it was working to quickly remove Tide Pod videos as they encouraged dangerous behaviour with an “inherent risk of physical harm”. A spokesman for YouTube said: “YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit content that's intended to encourage dangerous activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm. We work to quickly remove flagged videos that violate our policies.” NFL New England Patriots' star Rob Gronkowski has spearheaded an awareness campaign around eating Tide pods Credit: Twitter/Tide Accounts that have a video deleted also face having a temporary strike placed against them that can disable some of the channel’s features, such as monetisation. YouTube channels that get three strikes against them in a three-month period are terminated from the platform.  Parents have long been warned of the health risks detergent pods can pose to small children, who are attracted to the colourful capsules. In 2013 the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning saying: “Young children who are exposed to the highly concentrated, toxic detergent are at risk of serious injury.” 19-year-old Marc Pagan reacting after biting into a Tide Pod due to a dare Credit: YouTube The commission said that children who had ingested detergent needed hospital attention for adverse effects such as loss of consciousness, excessive vomiting, drowsiness, throat swelling, and difficulty breathing. The first mentions of the “Tide Pod challenge” on YouTube date back to 2014. Then in 2015 the satirical site, The Onion, published a spoof op-ed from a toddler describing his determination to eat the colourful detergent pods. The fad of teens daring each other to bite into the pods came to the fore last year after a number of high-profile videos. The trend has spawned its own internet culture, with teenagers posting memes of fake adverts for the pods being marketed as food. When bae cooks for you �� pic.twitter.com/6kYnAjP2R5— Tide Pods (@OGTidePods) January 8, 2018 A video by CollegeHumor titled ‘Don't Eat the Laundry Pods’ posted in March 2017 has been viewed more than three million times. The craze has prompted the owners of Tide, Procter & Gamble, to launch an awareness campaign deterring teenagers from eating the pods. NFL star, Rob Gronkowski, of the New England Patriots, is featured in one of the videos saying: “What the heck is going on people? Use Tide Pods for washing, not eating.” What should Tide PODs be used for? DOING LAUNDRY. Nothing else. Eating a Tide POD is a BAD IDEA, and we asked our friend @robgronkowski to help explain. pic.twitter.com/0JnFdhnsWZ— Tide (@tide) January 12, 2018 One teenager who fell foul of the craze was Marc Pagan, 19, who said he did it as he was dared. He told CBS News: “A lot of people were just saying how stupid I was or how – why would I be willing to do that? “No one should be putting anything like that in their mouths, you know?” However the trend has continued to grow over 2017 and 2018. The American Association of Poison Control Centers said there were 39 recorded cases of 13 to 19-year-olds intentionally exposing themselves to single-load laundry tablets in 2016 and 53 cases in 2017. The association said it had already recorded 39 cases in the first 15 days of 2018 alone. Stephen Kaminski, the AAPCC’s CEO, said: “The ‘laundry packet challenge’ is neither funny nor without serious health implications. “The intentional misuse of these products poses a real threat to the health of individuals. We have seen a large spike in single-load laundry packet exposures among teenagers since these videos have been uploaded.”

How plants see light

The proteins PCH1 and PCHL help plants adapt to their surroundings. Plants react sensitively to changes in their surroundings and possess the ability to adapt to them. They use the photoreceptor protein phytochrome B to see light and then regulate processes such as seed germination, seedling development, longitudinal growth and flower formation.
