VIDEO: Female engineer invents traffic robocops

In honor of Women’s History month, comes a great story of a female engineer who invented robots to help control traffic and deal with police corruption in her country.

Thérèse Izay is an engineer from The Democratic Republic of Congo who also runs a women’s technology cooperative. She created robots, which not only help direct traffic, but also have cameras that are linked to a central computer to record violations, moving or otherwise. The robots are installed at two intersections in the DRC capital city of Kinshasa, a city of millions with a horrific traffic problem. It’s normal there for drivers to be stuck in traffic for hours. The city is also unfortunately notorious for its corrupt traffic police. Having robots helps lessen cops collecting bribes from drivers and pedestrians.

Another plane crash averted as Malaysia Airline MH066 makes unscheduled landing in Hong Kong

A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 271 people from Malaysia to South Korea on Monday was forced to make an unscheduled landing in Hong Kong after a technical fault involving an onboard generator, the airline said.

Flight MH066 departed from Kuala Lumpur at 11.37 p.m. bound for Seoul's Incheon airport. The flight, however, was diverted to Hong Kong's international airport where it landed safely at around 3 a.m., the airline said.

Malaysia Airlines said the Airbus A330-300 jet was diverted because of an inoperative generator. There was no loss of power because an auxiliary generator took over.

All 271 passengers were transferred to other carriers, the airline said, while the return flight from Incheon to Kuala Lumpur was canceled. Passengers have been transferred to other flights for the return leg.

A spokeswoman for the Hong Kong airport said the plane landed safely less than 30 minutes after it notified the airport. She said it was not classified as an emergency landing, although emergency services were put on standby.

President Goodluck Jonathan said at the weekend his administration has earmarked $1 billion to implement a comprehensive programme to check crude oil theft, the vandalism of oil and gas infrastructure, and the apprehension and prosecution of suspects.

He disclosed this at The Hague while speaking with the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Mr. Mark Rutte and the Chief Executive Officer of Shell International, Mr. Ben van Beurden.

Urinate publicly and get prosecuted - Gov. Fashola Babatunde

Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State has ordered officers of the Kick Against Indiscipline, KAI, to henceforth arrest people urinating and defecating in public places across the state.

Fashola, who was on his way to the free health mission at Oke-Ira, Ogba area of Lagos, southwest Nigeria, Thursday, said he saw five people urinating in public places and was disgusted by such a despicable act.

“This is a violation of our sanitation law and I will ask KAI to move out en-masse and prosecute those who violate our laws,” he lamented.

The governor urged residents to shun the practice and adopt healthy lifestyle, saying that environmental pollution contributes to the cases of ill-health that affects community dwellers.
“The biggest doctor you can have is prevention. If we all can imbibe better habits, it will reduce the incidence of ill-health. Citizens must be ready to take responsibility for their own healthcare to live a healthy life, if we chose to be cleaner than we are now, we would have a healthy environment than we have right now,” he said.

Fashola charged traditional rulers, Community Development Associations and community leaders to move to stop the habit which he described as unhealthy and not speaking well of the residents of Lagos as a people, saying officers of the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) would enforce the law in this respect.

Turkey blocks Twitter access, considers outright ban of other social media platforms

Turkey’s courts have blocked access to Twitter days before elections as Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan battles a corruption scandal that has seen social media platforms awash with alleged evidence of government wrongdoing.

Erdoğan’s ruling AK Party has already tightened Internet controls, handed government more influence over the courts, and reassigned thousands of police and hundreds of prosecutors and judges as it fights a corruption scandal he has cast as a plot by political enemies to oust him.

Viacom and Google settle YouTube lawsuit

Viacom says it’s settled its $1 billion copyright lawsuit against YouTube.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
New York-based Viacom Inc. filed the suit in 2007, claiming that YouTube was aware that thousands of videos on its site were stolen from its TV networks such as Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon.

Litigation dragged on for years, but a federal judge ruled last year that the online video site didn’t have to police itself as long as it removed infringing videos when copyright owners gave it notice.

Viacom and Google Inc., which bought YouTube in 2006, say the settlement reflects increasing talks between the two companies related to important opportunities.

VIDEO: Here's the most amazing overhead backheel goal you'll ever see

Wonder goals can come from just about anywhere at any time and the Jordan Pro League proved that. In the 52nd minute of a match between Al Ramtha and Al Wahdat, the visiting side's Syrian striker Motaz Salhani scored the only goal of the match in absolutely stunning fashion. While Salhani charged towards the box, one of his teammates delivered a long pass behind him, so Salhani flicked his leg back and connected with the ball. 

This alone was pretty impressive, since he was running full speed and didn't break stride to execute his backheel overhead kick.
