  1. Imagine a helicopter built with 18 rotors. Well, that’s what engineers in Germany have created, calling it the Volocopter!

    The prototype has 18 small rotors mounted in a configuration that provides lift without causing the vehicle to spin. The copter navigates by changing the speed of its individual rotors. The battery-powered volo chopper made several takeoffs and landings in a 72-foot-high hangar. Engineers will now continue working on the 18-blade chopper, which they say, will be lighter, safer, quieter and greener than any other helicopter in the world.

  4. One of the world’s most-wanted drug traffickers has been captured in Mexico.
    Huakin Goosmaan, known as El Chapo or shorty was arrested after a thirteen-year-manhunt at a hotel in the seaside resort town of Mazatlan. He’s the head of the infamous Sinaloa Cartel. His cartel has smuggled billions of dollars of drugs into the US, Europe and Asia and fought brutal wars with other Mexican gangs. Washington had earlier offered a five million dollar reward for information about the drug kingpin. US Attorney General, Eric Holder, has hailed Goosmaan's arrest as a landmark achievement and a victory for both Mexico and the United States. The US Homeland Security Department says its investigations helped in the arrest of the drug lord.

  5. The French capital Paris is hosting its annual Agricultural Fair. Thousands of animals are taken to the capital from around the country every year to enter competitions and present their produce to the general public.
    Relations between the government and the agricultural sector have been tense at times thanks to a proposed green tax to be levied on heavy goods vehicles, which has prompted repeated protests by farmers who say it would seriously damage their livelihoods. The fair is visited by thousands of families who bring their children to pet rare breeds of sheep and rabbits present in the competitions, and taste a vast array of produce in the exhibition halls on the southern fringes of the French capital.
