Bombers in the South China Sea: Beijing Grows its Military Presence on Disputed Islands

Today 20:03 GMT

China’s first-ever landing of a heavy bomber on a disputed island in the South China Sea punctuates a steady buildup of military assets that has solidified Beijing’s claims to one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.

On Friday, China’s air force disclosed it had landed an H-6K bomber on an island in the area, which would “help improve actual combat capabilities in responding to various security threats at sea.”. Experts who track China’s military moves said the landing was on Woody Island in the Paracels, an island chain where claims by Vietnam, China and Taiwan intersect.

To Capture Off-Market Sales, Australian Buyers Turn to Agents

Today 11:48 GMT

Armed with a specific wish list and deep pockets, an increasing number of Australian house hunters are seeking out buyers’ agents to help find their dream homes.

The prevalence of off-market sales in the Australian residential market is underpinned by declining buyer interest and sellers seeking a low-profile sale without publicity, at the same time avoiding marketing costs and open houses. Mr. Yardney said that when Sydney and Melbourne property markets boomed two years ago, vendors were more likely to auction their homes because rising buyer competition allowed them to fetch higher prices.

Consumer Reports: Tesla’s Model 3 has ‘big flaws’

Today 20:02 GMT

This week, Tesla’s string of good reviews came to a halt when Consumer Reports — a publication devoted to authoritative product testing — handed the Model 3 a crushing review.

Consumer Reports’s review doesn’t mention any issues with the vehicle’s semiautonomous driving technology, but it does say the Model 3’s stopping distance at 60 mph — approximately 152 feet — is “far worse” than any recent model they’ve tested and “about seven feet longer than the stopping distance of a Ford F-150 full-sized pickup.” The publication says its results are “21 feet longer than the class average of 131 feet for luxury compact sedans and 25 feet longer than the results for its much larger SUV sibling, the Model X.”. To perform the test, the publication’s testers slam on the vehicle’s brakes when the car is traveling 60 mph and measure the distance the vehicle travels until it comes to a stop.

To close the ceremony, the choir undercut the pomp of the service with Etta James’s civil rights anthem This Little Light of Mine.

Tesla Model 3: Consumer Reports finds braking, other problems

Today 20:02 GMT

Consumer Reports has found "big flaws" with Tesla's Model 3 car, the more affordable sedan unveiled by the electric car maker in 2016 as it tries to crack the mass auto market. The problems "keep the Model 3 from earning a Consumer Reports recommendation," the influential magazine said in its review.

In testing, the Model 3 went 350 miles on a single charge, the farthest Consumer Reports has ever tested, when using Tesla's "regenerative" braking mode, which slows the car and charges the battery as soon as motorists step off the accelerator pedal.

Two pilots spend their savings on a plane to rescue migrants

Today 06:06 GMT

On board were two French pilots, José Benavente and Benoit Micolon, who months earlier pooled their life savings to buy the aircraft now carrying them over the ocean separating Europe from North Africa.

If resources allow, the Maritime Rescue Coordination Center in Rome will send a plane or a helicopter to locate the boat and send the coordinates to rescue vessels. “It’s not easy though, because the [migrant] boats are small and the area is quite large,” said Antoine Laurent, maritime manager at SOS Mediterranée, an organization that seeks to save lives in the Mediterranean.
