TED 2017: UK 'Iron Man' demonstrates flying suit

A British inventor, who built an Iron Man-style flight suit, has flown it at the Ted (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference in Vancouver.
Richard Browning's short flight took place outside the Vancouver Convention Centre in front of a large crowd.
Since he posted the video of his maiden flight in the UK, Mr Browning has had huge interest in his flying suit.
But he insists the project remains "a bit of fun" and is unlikely to become a mainstream method of transportation.

He was inspired by his father, an aeronautical engineer and inventor, who killed himself when Mr Browning was a teenager.

Cranes, scaffolding and hoardings advertising exclusive pads are a common sight around the city, but how many of these new builds actually become homes for the people who need them? Not many, according to new figures released on the number of unsold, empty buildings dotted around the city, which has now reached record levels.
Recently we brought you the news that house prices have risen by £105 a day in the last five years and if you’re thinking of flying solo you’ll need a whopping £40,000 to rent a tiny space. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear yet another unhappy housing story (though it’ll still make you swear loudly and cause tutting sounds as you weep into your cereal). The number of residential homes under construction and yet to find a buyer soared from 25,000 to 27,000 units by the end of 2016, according to data released by Molior London.
And all of that unsold property comes with a hefty price tag. A separate study by Composite Door Experts found that some 20,000 vacant homes around the city have a combined value of £11.7 billion (!). These are homes that have been empty for six months or longer. The biggest culprit for ghost-homes was the borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which is harbouring 1,399 empty properties.

Ican’t understand this housing crisis. Nobody needs to be homeless. We have 200,000 empty homes in England, with 4,297 in Birmingham alone. And that’s only the houses. There are countless empty cinemas, theatres, hospitals and stations that have been derelict for decades, and probably a few bunkers if you’re worried about nuclear holocaust. What a waste. Within 30 minutes’ walk of my home, there is a huge theatre (empty since 1989), a hospital (empty for decades) and a nursing home (empty since 2003), all sitting rotting while dithering owners make up their minds what to do with them. Imagine what perfect flats, hostels, community centres and shelters they could have made in the meantime.

Snap Election - Who Benefits? Russell Brand The Trews (E418)

Jeremy Corbyn has announced one of his first moves if elected Prime Minister. The Labour Party would transfer power from bosses to ordinary people by immediately repealing the Trade Union Act. The act makes it much easier for bosses to take advantage of employees. So it’s no wonder Conservative figures are out smearing the leader as a national security threat.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd was one of the original MPs named in the Tory election fraud scandal. And she is in for a nasty surprise during her general election campaign. Because she will be forced to debate the issue live, in front of the public – whether she likes it or not.

Exclusive: CPS considering charges against over 30 people including Tory MPs over expenses

Criminal charges against more than 30 people, including a raft of Conservative MPs and their agents, are being considered by the Crown Prosecution Service over election expenses at the last general election, Channel 4 News can reveal.
It is not possible to say how many are MPs and how many are agents but it is understood to be a large number and it is believed that the possible prosecutions will be of MPs and election agents.
The news comes as Prime Minister Theresa May today called a snap general election.

Just hours after announcing a general election, Theresa May made her first gaffe. She announced she was refusing to take part in televised election debates. But while May is running scared from facing her opposition head on, she is facing a direct challenge from some of the most powerful people in politics. And they’re threatening to “empty chair” her if she doesn’t show up.
