You're A Sex Bomb! Red Army Ups The Tempo

1 Share
By Katie Stallard, Russia Correspondent
Russia's Red Army Choir have a long and distinguished history, specialising in rousing, patriotic marching songs, but there is another, more surprising side to their repertoire too.
First formed under Joseph Stalin in 1939, they were meant to represent the collective voice of the revolution, to rouse the spirits of Red Army troops.
The Soviet Union may have collapsed, but the choir, now under the control of Russia's Interior Ministry, are going strong, and providing some unlikely hits.
Alongside their more traditional fare, they have covered Daft Punk's Get Lucky, Sex Bomb by Tom Jones and The Beatles' Hey Jude.
The songs are performed in full military dress uniform, complete with medals, led by their charismatic conductor, Major General Viktor Eliseev.

Video: Red Army Choir 'Get Lucky'
They've recorded a music video, complete with smoke machine, theatrical lighting and choreographed moves.
But the Major General is keen to stress that, whilst some of their choices may be lighter, the choir retains a serious purpose.
He explained: "Since the time of Peter the Great there were musicians and orchestras which reinforced the patriotic tunes inside every warrior - to raise their morale so that they would win the battle and defeat the enemy.
"We perform for our soldiers, their commanders and their families to reinforce the feeling that the Motherland really needs them, that we are proud of them, that they are doing their patriotic duty."
Decision-making in the choir is a democratic process, with every member getting a say in the songs they select.

One of the lead vocalists, Alexei Dmitriev, told Sky News: "I really want people who are watching and listening to us to understand that we are doing this only for them.
"It's personally for them, not for the government, not for their bosses, but personally for everyone who is in the hall, or watching us on television.
"We want to touch every heart."
The choir performed Get Lucky at the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, in front of an audience that included Vladimir Putin.
The fact that they were allowed to do so suggests the Russian president approves of their work.

What keeps the planet spinning
The force from the beginning

We've come too far
To give up who we are

Computer glitch prevents US’ most advanced F-35 fighter jet from firing until 2019 

1 Share
The Pentagon’s fighter jet F-35 may not be fully operational until 2019 due to a newly discovered computer glitch. The $400 billion ultra-sophisticated jet, the most expensive in US history, was expected to enter service in 2015.
F-35 is the fifth generation combat aircraft which is designed in three variations for US Air Force, Navy and Marines to replace out of date aircraft. It was planned to join the Marines in 2015 and Air Force in 2016.
It is planned to replace the Air Force’s A-10 Warthog ground attack plane and Lockheed F-16 multirole fighter, the Navy instead of Boeing F/A-18 Hornet carrier-based fighter, and the Marines instead of Boeing AV-8B Harrier II jump-jet.
However, the most awaited plane’s main weapon will not be able to fire due to a computer glitch. The four-barreled rotary cannon for the Air Force version of the F-35 cannot function until new software is elaborated, despite jet scheduled to join the army this year.
“There will be no gun until [the Joint Strike Fighter’s Block] 3F [software], there is no software to support it now or for the next four-ish years,” an Air Force official affiliated with the F-35 program told the Daily Beast. “Block 3F is slated for release in 2019, but who knows how much that will slip?”
This problem is especially acute as this version of the jet is planned for close air support (CAS) operations. While the F-35 is equipped with other armaments, it might be not enough.
“Lack of forward firing ordnance in a CAS supporting aircraft is a major handicap,” an experienced pilot commented for the Daily Beast. “CAS fights are more fluid than air interdiction, friendlies and targets move… Often times quickly. The ability to mark the target with rockets and attack the same target 10 seconds later is crucial.”
Equipped with a gun, Air Force’s F-35A version barely carries enough ammunition. Despite being able to shoot 3,300 rounds per minute, it will only be carrying 180 to 220 rounds.
The two other versions of F-35 – for the Navy and Marine Corps – have different configurations with external gun pods, however, they will not have a software for them either, the Daily Beast reported.
F-35 production has been facing delays and cost overruns due to numerous software problems and production defects. The jet which has already cost $400 billion dollars to US taxpayers since the program started in 2006. The costs doubled since the start of construction in 2011 making it the most expensive project in military history.
However, the Pentagon denied the aircraft will be delayed, the International Business Times reports as well as neither Lockheed nor the F-35 Joint Program Office responded to inquiries.
Last December, a problem with fuel was discovered. The engine of the aircraft can shut down when the fuel gets too hot to work as a coolant, although this information was disputed by the Pentagon.
Last summer, the F-35 was supposed to be the star attraction at the Farnborough Air Show in Hampshire, but it did not appear after the entire fleet was grounded after a fire at a Florida airbase in June.
The Pentagon plans to buy 2,433 jets in three variations. Great Britain has also ordered 14 jets. However, the program is getting more and more severe criticism.
“To me, the more disturbing aspect of this delay is that it represents yet another clear indication that the program is in serious trouble,” an Air Force official told the Daily Beast. “F-35 maker “Lockheed Martin is clearly in a situation where they are scrambling to keep their collective noses above the waterline, and they are looking to push non-critical systems to the right in a moment of desperation.”
The F35 is designed and built by American Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company which manufactures the widely spread military aircraft F-16, also known as the Fighting Falcon, successful all-weather multirole plane.

Black Valley by Charlotte Williams, The Girl Who Wasn’t There by Ferdinand von Schirach, The Zig-Zag Girl by Elly Griffiths, The Missing and the Dead by Stuart MacBride and The Locked-Room Mysteries by Otto Penzler
Set in Cardiff’s art world, Black Valley by Charlotte Williams (Macmillan, £14.99) opens with artist Elinor Powell consulting psychotherapist Jessica Mayhew about claustrophobia, following the death of her mother during a robbery at her studio. Elinor comes from an artistic family who claim to be related to Augustus and Gwen John, and her dealer brother-in-law, Blake, has discovered an as-yet-unknown painter he hopes will take the art world by storm: the elusive Hefin Morris, a former miner with a backstory that fits the myth of the lone, untutored genius a bit too neatly, and whose darkly evocative canvases symbolise Wales’s lost industrial heritage. When Blake is killed, it becomes clear that there’s a major scam taking place, but what is it? Although the mystery element here is fairly straightforward, what’s utterly gripping is the psychologically acute depiction of the slowly crumbling wall between Jessica’s personal and professional life as she struggles to adjust to single motherhood and her new, possibly compromised art‑consultant partner. This is the second in Charlotte Williams’s series featuring Jessica Mayhew, and sadly the last, as this extremely talented author died last year.

Check Out Kim Jong Un’s Magical Disappearing Eyebrows

1 Share
When you’re the dictator of a totalitarian hermit state built on fear and mass delusion, it can be really hard to make the right fashion choices for each season.
The new eyebrow look sported by leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Kim Jong Un, may illustrate the pitfalls of having no one left to tell you “No…omg seriously just no.”
Kim Jong Un delivered a televised speech on Thursday in which he said the North is open to engaging in serious talks with South Korea. It was an important and almost conciliatory message, but one that was overshadowed — or undershadowed? — by the leader’s shrunken eyebrows.
In what looks to be a case of over plucking, Kim Jong Un has rendered his eyebrows in to mere dashes.
The South China Morning Postposits that Kim’s new forehead hyphens may be an effort to change his appearance to look more like his grandfather, Kim Il-sung, the first leader of North Korea.
Maybe the DPRK hoped to distract from Kim’s new look by releasing a propaganda video of the leader piloting a large airplane.
