Human beings marks was discovered bottom of south of Chile between at least 18,500 and 14,500 years ago, archaeologists say. Their new results challenge a wonderful sight in human history that people came to South America no before than 15,000 years ago. Four stone artifacts were discovered beneath the earth coming back to at least 25,000 years ago. But more evidence is required to prove that humans visited Monte Verde and other South American places before 20,000 years ago, the scientists say.

Introduction

The FAI World Air Games 2015 will be for the first time held in the Middle East.

Hosted in Dubai, United Arab Emirates,this event will take place from the 1st to the 12th of December, 2015.

The multi-discipline event is organised by the Emirates Aerosports Federation under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai himself.

The World Air Games has 11 general categories:

(aerobatics, aeromodelling, aerostats, amateur built, general aviation, gliding, microlights, parachuting, paragliding, rotorcraft and paramotor).

Aerobatics

Powered aerobatics is where aerobatic pilots demonstrate their ability to maneuver their high performance aircraft at its extreme physical limit, using exciting, innovative and freestyle manoeuvers.

Glider aerobatics on the other hand is performed on a not engine-powered glider. They rely solely on the energy they derive from converting altitude into speed. Unlike powered aerobatics, glider aerobatic pilots have to demonstrate their ability to fly gracefully, with the elegance of the bird; as oppose their ability to freestyle. Both categories are going to take place at the FAI World Air Games 2015, Dubai from the 2nd to 5th of December.

Aeromodelling

Aeromodelling is one of the most significant discipline in aerosports, as it encourages new ideas and innovations. There are estimated to be over a million enthusiasts aspiring to create new flying mechanism.

The FAI World Air Games 2015 in Dubai will be hosting competitions for four categories under this discipline.

F3N – RC helicopter freestyle will be held from the 9th to 12th of December, F3T – Semi scale pylon racing model aircraft with controlled technology will be held from the 6th to 8th of December,

F2D – control line combat model aircraft will be held from the 6th to 8th of December and lastly F3P – indoor radio control aerobatic power model aircraft flying to music will be held from the 30th November to the 1st of December.

Aerostats

Aerostats or hot air ballooning is generally accepted as starting with two French brothers – Joseph and Etienne Montgolfier – launched the first manned flight on 21st November, 1783. Since that initial flight,

the sport of ballooning has expanded to cover not only balloons but hot air ships. Both categories of ballooning are going to take place at the FAI World Air Games 2015 in Dubai. The Hot Air Airship will take place from the 1st to 5th of December. The Hot Air Balloon will take place from the 6th to 11th of December.

Amateur Build

An amateur built aircraft is one that is built by a person who does not do so on a professional basis.

Typically, they are built using an assembly kit, from scratch or using plans, though some models may be a hybrid of one or more of these types.

The Amateur Built segment of the 2015 World Air Games in Dubai pays tribute to the inventive,

resourceful and creative minds that started it all while offering today’s modern amateur built enthusiast the ability to show off their latest designs.

General Aviation

The broadest discipline at the World Air Games, general aviation refers to a powered flight in a heavier than air machine.

There are two air sport disciplines at the games under this category:

the Air Navigation Race held from Dec 04 to Dec 09 and Landing Accuracy held from Dec 04 to Dec 09.

Gliding

A glider is an aircraft without an engine. For a glider to fly it has to generate a lift opposite to its own weight.

To do that a glider moves through the air, which also gives it’s a drag. With no engine to counteract this drag the glider slowly and eventually returns back to earth.

For the first time in the history of gliding, gliders will perform a new completion in the FAI World Air Games 2015 Dubai, UAE. The Parallel glider race, designed especially for the World Air Games, consist of testing the gliding skills of top international pilots.

Each race or match will have two 18 meter high performance sailplane of the same type, at the same take of weight.

They would fly simultaneously on short parallel tasks in separated air spaces located on either side of the runway. Each pilot will be ranked accordingly and the winners will be eventually decided in the final round.

Microlights

The first microlights were weight-shift types for the pilots who were used to hand gliding.

It was essentially a motorised hand glider, powered by a two stroke engine (10hp).

In the next few years the wing and airframe/engine technology expanded to a three-axis microlights.

A three-axis microlight resembles an aeroplane in shape and piloting method while retaining the same affordable price of the original microlights.

The FAI World Air Games 2015 in Dubai has two discipline lined up,

the Weight shift controlled from 2nd December to 11th December and the Gyrocopters from 2nd December to 11th December.

Parachuting

Leonardo da Vinci, the famous artist and engineer,

is also the man credited for the concept of lowering a man to earth safely using by using a maximum drag decelerator otherwise known as a parachute.

There are now more than 10 types of disciplines under this sport and the 2015 The World Air Games,will showcase six of these

Formation Skydiving (FS) from 7th December to 12th December will have four categories, 4-way open, 4-way female, 8-way and 4-way vertical FS.

Artistic Event (AE) from 7th December to 12th December will have two categories, freestyle skydiving and free flying. Canopy Formation (CF) from 7th December to 12th December will have two categories, 2-way sequential and 4-way rotation.

Accuracy Landing (AL) from 7th December to 12th December will have four categories, male team accuracy, female team accuracy, junior male accuracy and junior female accuracy.

Canopy Piloting (CP) from 3rd December to 7th December will have four categories, speed, accuracy, distance and freestyle. Lastly, Speed Skydiving (SS) will be held from 7th December to 12th December.

Paragliding

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure.

At the World Air Games 2015 Dubai, there will be three disciplines hosted under this category with pilots being launched with a towing boat or dropped from an helicopter.

Aerobatic solo held from 2nd December to 7th December, aerobatic synchro held from 2nd December to 7th December and landing accuracy held from 2nd December to 10th December.

Rotorcraft

Rotorcraft, most commonly known as helicopters, have origins that can be traced back to the 4th Century.

A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally.

The Parallel Slalom will be held from the 6th December to 10th December and the Parallel Fender will be held from the 6th December to 10th December.

Paramotor

Since the 1980s, interest in the powered paraglider — also known as a PPG or a paramotor — has been building, making it more popular today than ever before.

At this years World Air Games paramotor pilots will perform in the slalom races from the 2nd to 12th December.

A gunman attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic yesterday in Colorado Springs, Colorado, killing three people, including one police officer, and injuring nine more, before he surrendered to police hours later. He exchanged fire with police in a standoff lasting around five hours.

There were a grocery store and a shopping mall nearby; police told those who were there to take “shelter in place”.

Colorado Springs police lieutenant Cathrine Buckley said the police doesn’t “have any information on [the suspect’s] mentality, or his ideas or ideology”.

Authorities said they received a report of shots fired at 11:38 a.m. local time (1838 UTC); the gunman was possibly carrying a “long gun” and maybe even propane tanks. Lieutenant Buckley said officers who entered the building “were able to shout to the suspect and make communication with him and that point they were able to get him to surrender and he was taken into custody”. Buckley said police only made contact and communicated with the suspect hours into the ordeal. The suspect was arrested at 4:52 p.m. after he surrendered to police.

At a press conference yesterday afternoon, police said searching through and investigating the “huge crime scene” could take hours or even days. Explosives teams checked the scene for traps.

Vicki Cowart, president of the Rocky Mountains chapter of Planned Parenthood, said some staff hid in “safe rooms” in the clinic as a part of Planned Parenthood’s security protocol. Many anti-abortion protests have focused on the Colorado Springs clinic; it moved to its current location, which critics have called a “fortress”, a few years ago.

Police evacuated the clinic, and cordoned off the clinic and nearby medical offices.

“Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this tragic situation”, Cowart said in a statement released on Planned Parenthood’s website. “We don’t yet know the full circumstances and motives behind this criminal action, and we don’t yet know if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack. We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country.”

The National Abortion Federation says at least eight murders have been committed in the US against abortion providers since 1977.

A gunman attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, killing three people, including one police officer, and injuring nine more, before he surrendered to police hours later. He exchanged fire with police in a standoff lasting around five hours; witnesses reported hearing dozens of gunshots.

There were a grocery store and a shopping mall nearby; police told those who were there to take “shelter in place”.

Colorado Springs police lieutenant Cathrine Buckley said the police doesn’t “have any information on [the suspect’s] mentality, or his ideas or ideology.”

The suspect was arrested at 4:52 p.m. after he surrendered to police.

At a press conference this afternoon, police said searching through and investigating the “huge crime scene” may take hours or even days. Buckley said police were searching for people who may still be inside the clinic. Explosives teams have entered the clinic to check for traps.

Vicki Cowart, president of the Rocky Mountains chapter of Planned Parenthood, said that some staff hid in “safe rooms” in the clinic as a part of Planned Parenthood’s security protocol.

In Saudi Arabia, six Shia Muslim activists, along with at least 46 other people, are to be executed for terrorism on an unspecified date, according to reports on Thursday.

Varying local media reports said at least 52 people will be executed. Saudi Arabian newspaper Okaz said some of the people convicted of terrorism were members of the militant group Al-Qaeda, and were convicted of attempting to overthrow the government and planning terrorist attacks. The 52 have allegedly killed at least a hundred civilians and seventy security personnel.

Amnesty International said others who are also to be executed were people from the city of Awamiya, where most of the population consists of Shia Muslims, a minority within Saudi Arabia. Protests have been held there, across the past several years, over alleged mistreatment of Shias by the government. Among those convicted of terrorism were the six Shia Muslim activists, at least two of whom reportedly were minors when they allegedly committed their crimes. Amnesty International has said the trials leading up to their conviction were clearly “unfair”.

James Lynch, Middle East and North Africa deputy director of Amnesty International, said Saudi Arabia was settling “political scores” under “the guise of counter-terrorism.”

The three Shias, Ali al-Nimr, Abdullah al-Zaher, and Hussein al-Marhoon, said they have confessed to their supposed criminal acts under torture, according to Lynch.

More than 150 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia in 2015, while only 90 were executed a year ago in 2014, said Amnesty International.

This news came after Saudi-born Palestinian poet Ashraf Fayadh was convicted of apostasy and sentenced to death by a court in Saudi Arabia, which Human Rights Watch researcher Adam Coogle called an example of Saudi Arabia’s “complete intolerance for anyone who may not share government-mandated religious, political, and social views.”
