• Report: Germanwings crash co-pilot tried descent previously

    Updated: 1 min ago

    PARIS (AP) — The co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 4525 appeared to practice a controlled descent on his previous flight, two hours before he crashed the A320 jet into a mountainside in March, French air accident investigators said Wednesday. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz set the plane into descent mode five times in a four and a half-minute period during a flight from Duesseldorf to Barcelona, then brought it back up again on a flight, the BEA investigation agency said in an interim report on the crash. Prosecutors have previously said Lubitz intentionally locked the pilot out of the cockpit and crashed the plane on its return flight from Barcelona to Duesseldorf in the French Alps on March 24, killing all 150 people on board.

  • Scientific study: Beatles, Stones eclipsed by hip-hop impact

    Updated: 35 min ago

    LONDON (AP) — The impact of hip-hop's arrival on the pop music scene eclipsed that of the Beatles-led British invasion of 1964, a computer analysis of 17,000 songs has found. The unusual study found three revolutions on the charts: the 1991 emergence of rap and hip-hop on mainstream charts; the synth-led new wave movement of 1983, and the advent of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who and other British rockers in the early 1960s. Although the Beatles — paced by the songwriting of John Lennon and Paul McCartney — enjoy perhaps the highest place in critics' esteem, the researchers found the hip-hop movement more profound.

    SICILY CATANIA — Young men piled over each other, some shimmying up ropes dangling from the towering rescue ship and others falling into the churning sea. Women and children were the last off the stricken dinghy during a chaotic Mediterranean rescue in which at least five migrants were crushed to death and more were feared drowned. Dramatic footage shot by a seaman aboard the Maltese freighter showed the weekend rescue of more than 100 West Africans aboard the flimsy boat off the coast of Libya. Survivors were brought Tuesday to the Sicilian port of Catania.

  • Annual effort helps in fight against hunger

    BY JAMES BRYANT | Published: Wed, May 6, 2015

    Since 1993, letter carriers in central and western Oklahoma have collected more than 7.1 million pounds of food — the equivalent of more than 5.9 million meals — to feed hungry Oklahomans. Donations are needed now to restock the shelves at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and its partner agencies. On Saturday, the 23rd annual Letter Carriers Food Drive is being conducted. Oklahomans are asked to leave a plastic bag that was delivered this week — or any plastic bag — with canned food donations by their mailbox. Your letter carrier will do the rest. A few cans of food may not seem like much, but they can be the difference between a mother feeding her children or sending them to
