Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.
‘Flying’ electric speedboat debuts on Switzerland’s lakes: The world’s first electric-powered hydrofoil speedboat, which reduces energy consumption and noise – as well as sea sickness – by “flying” above the waves, has made its debut on Switzerland’s lakes.
The Candela Seven can hit speeds of 55 km per hour when its foils lift it out of the water. Its manufacturers say it travels further and smoother than other electric boats.
The foils reduce water friction – and the effect of waves slamming into the boat – cutting energy consumption by 80% compared to normal diesel-powered boats and extending the craft’s range to 90 km (56 miles).
The carbon fiber boat also carries an on-board computer which automatically adjusts the foil positions 100 times per second to reduce rolling and sea-sickness. Full story: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-swiss-boat-electric/flying-electric-speedboat-debuts-on-switzerlands-lakes-idUSKBN25V104
Messi to stay put at Barcelona, according to TyC Sports: The news was reported after a meeting between his father Jorge Messi, who acts as his representative, and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The 33-year-old Argentinean striker has opted to stay put for another season to complete the final year of his contract with the Spanish side, according to TyC Sports.
It came after a fraught stand-off which saw Jorge Messi pen a statement to LaLiga claiming that the 700-million-euro buyout clause both the club and the league said must be honored did not exist. Full story: https://www.laprensalatina.com/messi-to-stay-put-at-barcelona-according-to-tyc-sports/
David Blaine flies above 7,500 meters with handful of helium balloons: Illusionist David Blaine flew Wednesday over the desert of Arizona at a height of more than 7,500 meters, holding on to a handful of 52 colored balloons inflated with helium.
Blaine, known for his risky acts and stunts on the street, exceeded his own expectations by flying above the 5,400 meters he set for himself when taking off and skimming a height of more than 7,500 meters that required him to wear an oxygen mask.
The 47-year-old illusionist’s challenge was to fly over New York City but, due to weather conditions and security issues, he had to change the location for the Arizona desert in an event broadcast on YouTube with a record audience for the platform.
