AirAsia_X_Airbus_A330-300_Nazarinia-2It has been revealed that the mysterious AirAsia flight that disappeared last month had climbed too high and too fast, just before plummeting into the Java Sea.

Radar data from the jets black box revealed that the Airbus A320-200 had been reaching around 6,000 feet per minute before it crashed, killing all 162 people aboard the aircraft.

Minister of Transport, Ignasius Jonan, told the Parliamentary Committee:

“It is not normal to climb like that; it’s very rare for commercial planes, which normally climb just 1,000 to 2,000 feet per minute,” he told lawmakers, The Associated Press reported. “It can only be done by a fighter jet.”

Forensic experts have identified 45 of 51 victims whose bodies, or body parts, have been recovered from the water.

It is still unclear what the cause of the crash is, however the weather has been cited as a probable factor.

Produced from June to March in the UK, kale is a deep green brassica with an increasing nutritional profile. Championed by celebrities and leading British chefs, this kale craze has been huge, and sometimes down-right silly. With recipe books named Fifty Shades of Kale (we are not even joking) and the continuous ‘All Hail Kale‘ puns going around, it is impossible to avoid. But what are the benefits of kale, and why should you eat it?

Former head of the Secret Intelligence Service MI6, Sir John Sawers, has warned that a successful terror attack on the UK is all but inevitable which means there can be ‘no grey areas’ on the internet.

He said that the internet has to an open community, in the same way that communities in the real world operate.

In his first speech since stepping down as head spy, he said: “There is a dilemma because the public, politicians and technology companies, to some extent, want us to be able to monitor the activities of terrorists and evil-doers but don’t want their electronic activities to be open to such monitoring.

“The benefit of the debate is that people now understand that is not possible. There has to be some form of ability to cover communications that are made through modern technology.”

This speech comes in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks, where two gunmen armed with assault rifles ambushed the French satricial weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and injuring a further 11 during the attack.
