Early Sunday morning, an anti-gun violence advocate named Shannon Watts began tweeting about a United Airlines gate agent who refused to allow at least one teen girl onto a flight because she was wearing leggings. Watts was waiting to board a flight in Denver and witnessed the whole thing, sharing her outrage with her more than 33,000 followers. According to United, which responded in a series of curt, truly ill-advised tweets, the passengers were traveling with United Pass, a program for the company’s employees and approved travel companions, that requires travelers to follow an apparently strict dress code.
Anyone who's played a futuristic shooter since the dawn of video games knows that when you see something called a "railgun" you're in for a real treat. Well, the US Navy built a railgun of its very own , and it just showed off its remarkably powerful creation in a new video of its test firing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=106&v=Pi-BDIu_umo Railguns like the one the Navy has built trade chemical propellants like gunpowder for the sheer power of electricity, generating extremely strong magnetic fields to push a projectile down a set of rails and out the end of the barrel. It might not sound particularly efficient, but the speeds that railgun projectiles can achieve put traditional cannons to shame. The Navy's massive weapon, for example, launches its rounds at a whopping 4,500 mph. Additionally, the projectiles launched by the railgun do their damage not by exploding, but simply by striking their target while moving at such a high speed, quite literally tearing apart anything they come into contact with. For most of their history, railguns have been more fiction than science, and their practicality and reliability has repeatedly been questioned over time. The size of the device itself is typically massive, owing to the large and complex electronic components required to supply the necessary power. However, there are also some pretty fantastic benefits of the non-explosive rounds, such as much less chance of unexploded ordnance causing problems either on the ship or vehicle firing the weapon, or on the battlefield after a skirmish has ended.
The FBI have searched a remote rural location hoping to find clues about the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted, gang-raped, shot and then fed to alligators. The bureau was searching a rural area of South Carolina on Friday (24 March) in connection to the disappearance of Brittannee Drexel, which occurred almost eight years ago. Last summer Taquan Brown, who is serving 25 years for an unrelated manslaughter case, testified that Drexel was abducted, gang-raped and then shot dead when she tried to escape in 2009.
Under Armour (UA) sneakers have gotten knocked in their past for their lack of cool. But sneaker heads may be forced to pipe down when feasting their years on one upcoming launch. The sportswear company will debut the UA ArchiTech Futurist on March 30 for the lofty price of $300, it revealed on Wednesday. They will be the next Under Armour line to use a 3D printed sole. Also, the sneakers will not have laces, instead using a compression system combined with a smaller zipper to keep one's foot secure (picture below). To be sure, Under Armour could use an innovative new product such as the UA ArchiTech Futurist to begin changing the discussion on its future. The UA ArchiTech Futurist Under Armour's
Former CIA officer Col. Tony Shaffer said the basics of President Trump's claim to have been "wiretapped" are likely true, and that the incident is "worse than Watergate." Noting it has been exactly two weeks since Trump tweeted that President Obama wiretapped his namesake tower, Shaffer said the "basic fundamental idea and claim is true." He said that Trump was not physically wiretapped, with a wire into his phone, and it may not have physically been Trump Tower, but his campaign apparatus instead. Shaffer said that due to the simplicity required to "mask" an American's name during an incidental wiretap, that the leak of Gen. Michael Flynn's name was "accidental on purpose." "Clearly they were
