Algeria airline

Algerian officials confirmed the crash of a passenger airliner earlier today in the desert near the border of Mali.

Algeria Air Flight 5017 carrying 110 passengers and six crew was en route from Burkina Faso to Algeria's capital when it disappeared from radar over northern Mali.

Two Algeria fighter jets spotted the wreckage in the desert.

The MD-83 aircraft was diverted from its flight path due to a thunderstorm. Heavy rains and high winds were reported in the area before the crash.

Rumors that Fidel Castro's niece Mariela Castro was on board the plane are false.

Today's plane crash capped off one of the deadliest weeks in aviation history. 289 people were killed when Malaysian Airlines flight 17 was shot down over the Ukraine on July 17, and 48 people are reported dead in a plane crash in Taiwan on Wednesday.

From CNN.com:

The state-run Algeria Press Service news agency cited Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal as saying search operations for the plane, an MD-83, were still continuing.
The airline tweeted that among those on board were 50 people from France, 24 from Burkina Faso, eight Lebanese, six Algerians, five Canadians, four Germans, two from Luxembourg, one from Mali, one Cameroonian, one Belgian, one Ukrainian, one Romanian and one Swiss.
A U.S. State Department official said it was not aware at this time of any Americans on the flight.
The Ouagadougou Airport statement claimed that Mariela Castro, daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro, was among those on board.
However, the National Center for Sexual Education in Havana, Cuba, which Mariela Castro runs, denied the reports and told CNN she was at an event in Havana. Castro subsequently told a Telesur anchor who interviewed her by phone, "I'm alive, kicking, happy and healthy!"

    its that these pilots are not paying attention to mother nature. Storms are nothing to fly in much less at high altitude, them shyts can destroy a plane!

    :no: Sad, very sad. But there are a lot of inexperienced pilots flying in intense weather and think they can maneuver around crazy shyt. :no:

    ___________________________

    when I took a cruise I was scared of pirates.

    you get off the plane and the locals just stand there waiting and begging you & there is no real security to stop them from jumping on board. when we werent docked we were out in the middle of the ocean for too long. couple that with me :smoke: and :koolaid: every five minutes and I was scared as hell.

    so the moral of the story is dont get too high or drunk on a cruise :lol: and get a smoking cabin because if the ppl next door smoke cigarettes they dam sure aint about to complain about weed smoke.

    A 19-year-old Chicago teen may one day hold the key to curing colon cancer.

    If his previous successes are any indication, Keven Stonewall is well on his way to becoming the kind of scientist who leaves a lasting impact in the realm of cancer research.

    In his senior year of high school, this young man from the city’s South Side was already working on a potential colon cancer vaccine at a Rush University lab, DNAInfo reports.

    “My friends, family members have died from cancer,” Stonewall said in a VNM video. “A lot of people are impacted by cancer. So I felt it was my role to step up and do something about it.”

    At first, his friends mocked his dedication to science. When they were out on vacation, he was holed up in his lab.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_S8jrHDNQVE&list=HL1365174233 <–Doesn't Talk To Strangers

    For his experiment, Stonewall injected a special high concentration of cancer-treating drug mitoxantrone into younger and older mice. He then injected the mice with aggressive colon cancer cells.

    After three days, Stonewall noticed that his experimental vaccine was 100% effective on young mice — their tumors were gone and they showed immunity to colon cancer. But the older mice were still afflicted by the cancer cells.

    His lab director at Rush University, Carl Ruby, said that Stonewall’s experiment helped scientists realize that they needed a special vaccine for older subjects.
