In a discussion at the Nantucket Conference yesterday, Uber products head Jeff Holden said the company has been looking into offering short flights around cities “so we can someday offer our customers as many options as possible to move around,” according to Recode. The Uber product boss did not specify whether the vertical-takeoff-and-landing craft, or VTOL, would be piloted like traditional aircraft, remote-controlled, fully autonomous, or some combination thereof, like Airvinci's helicopter drones (pictured above).

Moscow on Monday slammed the United States and Britain for accusing Russia of "barbarism" and war crimes in Syria as Russian and Syrian warplanes continued to bomb rebel-held areas of Aleppo. "We note the overall unacceptable tone and rhetoric of the representatives of the United Kingdom and the United States, which can damage and harm our relations," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. Moscow and Damascus were repeatedly accused of war crimes at Sunday's emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to demand that Russia rein in its long-standing ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Fiat Chrysler has taken the wraps off a new compact SUV that it hopes will be a hit in 100 markets around the world. The Compass will offer class-leading all-wheel-drive off road ability despite its diminutive dimensions -- when it goes on sale in 2017 it will slot between the Renegade and the Cherokee in Jeep's current lineup -- but will also be comfortable on the road, too. There were rumors that the new Compass would make its global real-world debut at this week's Paris motor show, however, on Wednesday Jeep confirmed that it won't be meeting the public until November at the LA Auto Show, instead.

Europe's car emissions tests have been seen as inadequate for decades, a top U.S. regulator told European Union lawmakers on Monday, saying much stronger enforcement will be needed to stop cheating by automakers like Volkswagen . Testifying before a European Parliament committee investigating foul play on diesel-car emissions tests, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Christopher Grundler said new EU testing rules were far from enough. "The European test cycle has been acknowledged quite broadly since the 1990s to be inadequate," Grundler, director of the EPA's transportation and air quality office, said in a written answer to lawmakers' questions.
Few cars due to make their debut at this week’s Paris Motor Show are more hotly anticipated than Volkswagen’s new electric car concept, which previews its upcoming compact production EV.

If confirmed, the existence of the water plumes could make it easier than expected for NASA to get a taste of Europa's alien sea, one of the most likely places in the solar system for alien life. "If there are plumes emerging from Europa, it is significant because it means we may be able to explore that ocean of Europa for organic chemicals or even signs of life without having to drill through unknown miles of ice," astronomer William Sparks, who helped make these Hubble observations, said during a press conference Monday.

By Michael Martina and Nobuhiro Kubo BEIJING/TOKYO (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton put Donald Trump on the defensive and showed a better grasp of foreign policy issues, according to a sampling of people across Asia who watched the fiery first U.S. presidential debate. In China, the debate was streamed live on China's Twitter-like Weibo service and attracted thousands of comments despite the lack of a translation into Chinese. Some called Trump "a loose cannon", while others thought that as a businessman he was best qualified to lead the world's largest economy.

PAL said there was no panic and the passengers all disembarked safely and would travel to Japan on another aircraft.
The first Muslim rebel to be tried in an international court for a war crime for destruction of cultural heritage was sentenced to nine years in prison. Ahmad al-Fahdi al-Mahdi was handed the sentence by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands, on Tuesday. Mr. Mahdi admitted guilt and expressed regret at the start of the trial in August when he said he was swept up by an “evil wave” during the 2012 Mali conflict, and led a team armed with pickaxes and shovels to raze 14 adobe mausoleums that date to the 14th century.
Russia on Monday sought to deflect blame over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, accusing Kiev just days before the results of a Dutch criminal probe into the mass-killing are released. Ukraine and the West insist pro-Russian rebels blew the Boeing 777 jet out of the sky over war-torn east Ukraine on July 17, 2014, with a missile system likely supplied by Moscow. Russia and the rebels have consistently denied any role in downing the plane, releasing a series of sometimes contradictory claims that critics say are intended to confuse the issue.
