After trying (and failing) to engage Blanchett in idle chit chat (he jokingly asked Blanchett if they could share a beer to break the ice) he was told off by the actress, who joked that one of them had to do their jobs.

  • Bikie kicked out after 18 years

    A Comanchero bikie has become the first WA gang member to be hit with a deportation order as part of a national crackdown on overseas-born criminals who habitually flout Australia's laws. New Zealand-born Pani Yancy Fraser, 32, had his visa revoked on Tuesday, which means he will be sent packing as soon as criminal charges he is facing are dealt with by the courts.

The worst pilot suicide was the loss of EgyptAir flight 990 that killed 217 passengers and crew in 1999.

  • Superhighway from Europe to the US planned

    According to a report in The Siberian Times, Russian Railways president Vladimir Yakunin has proposed a very ambitious plan for a massive trans-Siberian highway that would link his country's eastern border with the U.S. state of Alaska, crossing a narrow stretch of the Bering Sea that separates Asia and North America. Dubbed the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development (TEPR), the project calls for a major roadway to be constructed alongside the existing Trans-Siberian Railway, stretching about 20,000 kilometres. Oil and gas pipes would run alongside the highway, and plans have been mooted already for a rail tunnel connecting the far flung Russian region of Chukotka - where football tycoon Roman Abramovich once served as governor - and Alaska.
