  • Missing MH370 wreckage may be further north, study suggests

    Just days after authorities mooted suspending the ocean search for missing flight MH370, researchers suggested on Wednesday that the debris zone may stretch a further 500 kilometres (310 miles) north. A team of Italian scientists used computer modelling, into which they fed data on ocean currents and winds over the past two years, to try and pinpoint the Malaysia Airlines plane's likely underwater grave. "One of the most important findings is that everything that has been discovered so far is indeed compatible with the area where the authorities are searching," lead researcher Eric Jansen of the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change in Italy told AFP.

  • Heat guard had an amazing, gross reaction to $50M contract offer

    A great many sports fans, whether die-hard NBA followers or casual observers, experienced pretty serious sticker shock during the opening days of free agency, as players who aren’t exactly household names (well, outside of Russia) started signing deals eight-figure deals that dwarf the top paydays of some of the greatest NBA players of even the very recent past. Nets general manager Sean Marks made the lucrative offer, which included “poison-pill” guarantees of $18.8 million and $19.6 million in the final two years of the deal, in hopes that the Heat — who picked up the undrafted Fresno State product in the summer of 2014, added him to their D-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, and helped develop him into a versatile young backcourt piece for the senior club — would be too cap-strapped down the line after maxing out center Hassan Whiteside, and too wrapped up with their pursuit of top free agent Kevin Durant and attempts to re-sign franchise legend Dwyane Wade, to exercise their rights in restricted free agency and match the offer sheet.
