NTSB: Pilot error caused crash that killed Troy Gentry

Pilot error following engine maintenance problems caused the helicopter crash that killed Montgomery Gentry singer Troy Gentry and the pilot at a small airport where he was to perform that night, federal investigators said. The pilot cut the engine too soon as he tried an emergency landing, leading to an uncontrolled descent, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a final report. Instead of reaching the runway at the Flying W Airport in Medford, New Jersey, the helicopter crashed in woods nearby. Gentry, 50, who was half of the award-winning country music duo Montgomery Gentry, was taking a pleasure and...

The NYPD, the nation's largest police department, puts its eyes in the skies with new drone program

The nation’s largest police force said Tuesday it is adding drones to its crime-fighting arsenal. More than a dozen unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) will be used for search and rescue, to investigate hazardous materials, and to access crime scenes in tall buildings. The move is particularly significant benchmark for U.S. law enforcement agencies because smaller police departments often follow the lead of larger, big city forces like the New York Police Department (NYPD). “The NYPD has a trailblazing effect when it comes to new technology and almost all aspects of policing,” said Christopher Dickey, author of “Securing the City: Inside...

Review: Film puts a modern spin on 'Mary, Queen of Scots'

" Mary, Queen of Scots " is an ambitious re-imagining of the Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I saga with modern flourishes and bold performances from Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. But the film, for all its prestige and edginess, its lofty goals and contemporary messages, is not a particularly engrossing experience. It's a shame too, because most of the elements are there. The gorgeous costumes and meticulous settings are breathtaking, and they couldn't have chosen two leads better suited to playing these women, with Ronan as Mary and Robbie as Elizabeth. They just don't come together very well, straddling an...

Why California’s recent wildfires are the 'new normal'

This story is from Inside Science. Just a few weeks ago, two large wildfires caused massive destruction and at least 91 deaths in California, the Woolsey fire near Los Angeles and the Camp fire that engulfed the town of Paradise in the north. Residents and firefighters struggled to stop both fires, yet they can expect more like them to come. Simultaneous large fires are becoming more common throughout the continental United States, according to new research presented by Alison Cullen today at the Society for Risk Analysis conference in New Orleans. The trend puts a strain on resources and will...

Russian space agency spokesman slams 'information attack'

The Russian space agency Roscosmos is bemoaning the endless stream of bad publicity that it says is designed to curb its funding. The agency's press secretary, Vladimir Ustimenko, said Tuesday in an interview published by the RIA Novosti news agency, that Roscosmos is facing an "information attack." He said the goal of those slamming Roscosmos at home and abroad is to "deprive us" of state funding, "which today is almost 20 times less than that of the NASA budget." The Russian space program has been plagued by construction mishaps, launch failures, corruption scandals and allegations of misusing federal funds over...
