  • Famous China rooftopper 'confirmed dead' after fall from skyscraper 

    Golocal247.com news

    A famous Chinese ‘rooftopper’ fell to his death from a skyscraper in a daring £11,000 challenge as he sought to use his fame to help lift his family out of poverty, media reported. Wu Yongning, aged 26, fell from the summit of the 62-storey Huayuan Hua Centre in the central city of Changsha, apparently as he attempted to scoop 100,000 yuan (£11,200) for a clip promoting an unnamed sponsor, reports say. The former movie stuntman had one million followers on the Chinese Internet and was well known for fearlessly scaling towering skyscrapers without any safety equipment. More than 300 videos of him tip-toeing on scaffolding or doing pull-ups as he hung from the side of huge buildings were widely shared by his fans. However, his account on Sina Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, went silent around a month ago after he purportedly attempted the Changsha skyscraper. The former movie stuntman had one million followers on the Chinese Internet and was well known for fearlessly scaling towering skyscrapers without any safety equipment And last Friday his girlfriend wrote online: "Today is December 8th. It makes me think of November 8th, the day you left us and left this world.” The Changsha Evening News said Mr Wu was seeking to make money for his poverty-striken family and pay medical costs for his mother, who suffers from a mental condition. Local officials said authorities would support his family following the accident.  Police confirmed that Mr Wu died when he fell from the Huayuan Hua Centre on November 8, reports said. His family were quoted in a news portal run by Beijing News that he was due to receive a huge cash payout for a two minute clip on a Changsha skyscraper on the same date.

  • McLaren's new hypercar unveiled as the Senna

    Golocal247.com news

    The unveiling of a new McLaren is always an exciting event, but it's even more evocative when it also brings back a legendary name from motor racing history at the same time. As it weighs in at just 1,198 kg (2,641 pounds), this is the lightest road-legal car McLaren has produced since the incredible McLaren P1. The engine and the light weight are just the start of the explanation of why this car will get you to 60 mph from a standing start in less than three seconds, and onwards to a top speed well in excess of 200 mph. The McLaren Senna is built on a carbon-fiber chassis that's as strong as it is lightweight, and everything is then wrapped up in a body shell also made from carbon-fiber that makes the car look every bit as fast as it really is.

  • Dying polar bear roams iceless land for food in 'soul-crushing' video

    Golocal247.com news

    Heartbreaking footage of a starving polar bear desperately searching for food on iceless land highlights the “real face of climate change”, conservationists say. Photojournalist Paul Nicklen said his team were moved to tears as they captured the struggling animal’s battle to stay alive on Canada’s Baffin Island last summer. The “soul-crushing” scene, captured by marine conservationists SeaLegacy, shows the emaciated bear searching an abandoned Inuit camp for sustenance. “My entire SeaLegacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear,” explained Mr Nicklen. “It’s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. No energy. It’s a slow, painful death. Polar bears are listed as vulnerable due to a “loss of sea ice habitat from climate change” Credit: AP “When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. “The simple truth is this - if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This large male bear was not old, and he certainly died within hours or days of this moment. But there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth-our home-first.” His colleague Cristina Mittermeier said it was “one of the hardest shoots we have ever had to do”. “Through tears, we were able to capture this footage with the hope of awakening people to the realities of a climate change future,” she said. Polar bears are the poster child for climate change  Credit: AP SeaLegacy said though it couldn’t say with 100 per cent certainty what had caused the bear to starve to death, the group added: “We do know that he didn’t have any visible wounds and that he was not an old bear. “Many of you have asked whether we could have saved this individual bear, but the hard truth is that he was on his last legs and his muscles had atrophied beyond repair. It would also have been illegal to feed him, to approach him, or to do anything to ease his pain.” The group warned an increasing number of polar bears are likely to die in this way “as a result of our warming climate”. “As global temperatures rise, the amount of multi-year sea ice in the Arctic shrinks. Polar bears depend on that ice to travel large distances and to hunt for their food. Without sea ice this will become a common scene across the Arctic,” they said.  The World Wildlife Fund says polar bears are vulnerable due to a “loss of sea ice habitat from climate change”. A study published last year by University of Washington researchers found that polar bears across the Arctic are facing a shorter sea ice season, a surface they depend on for hunting, travelling and breeding.

  • California wildfire ‘bigger than New York City’ now fifth largest in state history

    Golocal247.com news

    A massive California wildfire that has already destroyed nearly 800 structures scorched another 56,000 acres on Sunday, making it the fifth largest such blaze in recorded state history, as it ran toward picturesque coastal cities. But fire officials said as darkness fell that with the hot, dry Santa Ana winds not as fierce as expected, crews had been successful in building some fire lines between the flames and the towns of Montecito and Carpinteria. "This is a menacing fire, certainly, but we have a lot of people working very diligently to bring it under control," Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told an evening press conference. Still, some 5,000 residents remained under evacuation orders in the two communities, near Santa Barbara and about 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Los Angeles. Some 15,000 homes were considered threatened. The Thomas Fire, the worst of six major blazes in Southern California in the last week and already the fifth largest in the state since 1932, has blackened 230,000 acres (570,000 hectares), more than the area of New York City. It has destroyed 790 houses, outbuildings and other structures and left 90,000 homes and businesses without power. The combination of Santa Ana winds and rugged terrain in the mountains that run through Santa Barbara and Ventura counties have hampered firefighting efforts, and officials said the Thomas Fire was only 10 percent contained on Sunday evening, down from 15 percent earlier in the day. The Thomas Fire rages in Ventura County, as seen from Summerland in Santa Barbara County, The blaze started on Monday evening and spread rapidly overnight to envelop at least 45,000 acres Credit: Alamy But wind gusts recorded at 35-40 miles per hour were less than those predicted by forecasters, giving crews a chance to slow the flames' progress down slopes above the endangered communities. The fires burning across Southern California have forced the evacuation of more 200,000 people and destroyed some 1,000 structures. Among them are residents of Montecito, one of the state's wealthiest enclave and home to such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey. California wildfires cause thousands to flee, in pictures Emmy Leikin, an Emmy-winning songwriter who was ordered to evacuate her Montecito home at 9 a.m. on Sunday, said she fled with only her cell phone, medication, eyeglasses and a few apples. Leikin, 74, said she doesn't know the condition of her home and belongings but "none of that means anything when it is your safety." Fires worst in a decade   The fires that began last Monday night collectively amounted to one of the worst conflagrations across Southern California in the last decade. They have, however, been far less deadly than the blazes in Northern California's wine country in October that killed over 40.  The Thomas fire is only 15 percent contained, now threatening the city of Santa Barbara and the nearby coastal town of Carpinteria Credit:  AFP In the last week, only one death has been reported, a 70-year-old woman who died Wednesday in a car accident as she attempted to flee the flames in Ventura County. Scores of horses have died, including at least 46 at a thoroughbred training facility in San Diego county. Residents and firefighters alike have been alarmed by the speed with which the fires spread, reaching into the heart of cities like Ventura. At the Ventura County Fairgrounds, evacuees slept in makeshift beds while rescued horses were sheltered in stables. Peggy Scissons, 78, arrived at the shelter with her dog last Wednesday, after residents of her mobile home park were forced to leave. She has not yet found out whether her home is standing. "I don't know what's gonna happen next or whether I'll be able to go home," she said. "It would be one thing if I were 40 or 50, but I'm 78. What the heck do I do?" James Brown, 57, who retired from Washington State's forestry service and has lived in Ventura for a year, was forced to leave his house along with his wife last week because both have breathing problems. "We knew a fire was coming, but we didn't know it would be this bad," said Brown, who is in a wheelchair. Some of the other fires, in San Diego and Los Angeles counties, have been largely controlled by the thousands of firefighters on the ground this week. Both the Creek and Rye fires in Los Angeles County were 90 percent contained by Sunday morning, officials said, while the Skirball Fire in Los Angeles' posh Bel Air neighborhood was 75 percent contained. North of San Diego, the 4,100-acre (1,660 hectare) Lilac Fire was 75 percent contained by Sunday and most evacuation orders had been lifted.

    An attempted terrorist attack which injured five people at one of New York's busiest commuter hubs has been caught on video.   The 27-year-old suspect, Akayed Ullah, can be seen lying motionless after his bomb prematurely exploded.   The Isil-inspired attacker was seriously injured along while four other people, including a police officer, suffered minor injuries.   The suspect in the incident at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, a block from Times Square, is being held in custody and has been named as Akayed Ullah by the New York Police Department (NYPD).    The weapon was based on a pipe bomb and was fixed to the suspect with zip ties and hook and loop fastens, police said.    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, described the device as "amateur level" at a press conference near the site.   New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told the same news conference that the incident, which happened at the start of the city's rush hour, was "an attempted terrorist attack."   "As New Yorkers our lives revolve around the subways. When we hear of an attack in the subways it is incredibly unsettling," de Blasio said.   The incident was captured on security video, the police said.    Video block text Video footage shows smoke and a man lying down in the tunnel that connects the Times Square subway station to the bus station.    A photograph showed a man lying face down, with tattered clothes and burns on his exposed torso.   “There was a stampede up the stairs to get out,” said Diego Fernandez, one of the commuters at Port Authority.    “Everybody was scared and running and shouting.”   Alicja Wlodkowski, a Pennsylvania resident in New York for the day, was sitting in a restaurant in the bus terminal building at the time.   “Suddenly, I saw a group of people, like six people, running like nuts," she said.    "A woman fell. No one even went to stop and help her because the panic was so scary."
