Irish rock band U2 do not like Donald Trump! The musicians seem not to support the Republican mogul, whom they believe will suppress all American dreams and freedoms if he wins the race for Presidency.

U2 performed in Las Vagas, NV, where they offered an outstanding concert in front of tens of thousands of music fans.

During the show, the group unveiled an artistic trick which simulated a conversation between lead singer Bono and Republican candidate Donald Trump over the future of the US after the November 8 presidential election.

After the fictitious dialogue, Bono concluded that Americans will most likely lose everything if they choose the Republican candidate as the next inhabitant of the White House. The Trump moment was sandwiched in their hit “Desire – Desire”.

Bono asks: Las Vegas, are you ready to gamble? Are you ready to gamble your car? / Trump answers from back screen: What do you have to lose?
Bono: Are you ready to gamble your house? / Trump: What do you have to lose?
Bono: Are you ready to gamble the American dream? / Trump: The American Dream is dead!
Bono: The American Dream is alive!
Trump: What do you have to lose? / Bono: What do you have to lose? / Everything! Everything!

A user decided to sue the Internet giant Yahoo! following a 2014 hack attack that compromised 500 million accounts managed by the company.

The lawsuit was filed on Friday by the US citizen Ronald Schwartz from New York, who accuses Yahoo of negligence.

Yahoo showed “gross negligence in securing users’ personal data, data which they promised protection for” reads the complaint filed by Schwartz. It also slams Yahoo for its delay in discovering the security flaw, informs The Telegraph.

The unprecedented cyber attack could have been avoided if the US giant, which has historically been the target of hackers, would have taken seriously its promise to protect users’ privacy and would have increased the safety measures, according to documents Schwartz filed in a federal court in San Jose, California.

Schwartz, who is trying to obtain the status of ‘action for action lawsuit, sued Yahoo in the US on behalf of all users whose data were compromised in the attack. The amount of damages demanded was not disclosed.

Yahoo representatives declined to comment on the litigation.

Hungarian authorities are now willing to offer a 10 million forints (32,000 euros) bounty for any information leading to the capture of the suspect who is still on the loose. Hungary’s national police chief Karoly Papp said the attack is rather seen as a revenge, but a terrorist act is not ruled out.

At the time of the blast, the two policemen were on a foot patrol. The attacker detonated an improvised explosive device filled with nails on the ground floor of a store at the corner of Kiraly Utca (King Street) as officers were passing by late on Saturday. A 23-year-old female agent suffered life-threatening injuries and is recovering in intensive care while her 26-year-old male colleague was also seriously wounded but is now in stable condition, according to local media cited by RT.com.

As for the suspect, Hungarian police describe him as a young man, aged 20-25, measuring about 1.70 meter in height and wearing a light colored hat on the night of the explosion.

Police called for all institutions around the blast site to provide investigators with any available footage recorded by CCTV surveillance cameras.

According to police officials, the author of the attack would have sought revenge and particularly targeted the two agents.

Astounding video footage captured at Manchester airport shows what a cross-wind could do to an airplane that is able to carry up to 600+ people!

Giant A380s – world’s largest passenger jets – of the different airlines from around the globe are filmed as they are on the final approach at the British airport. For example, an Emirates Airline Superjumbo appears to be balancing on its wings in a frightening way while flying at low altitude above the rooftops.

Finally, the aircraft arrives safely on the ground despite the harsh storm at the UK airfield.

According to Wikipedia, the Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European Union manufacturer Airbus. It is the world’s largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was initially named Airbus A3XX and designed to challenge Boeing’s monopoly in the large-aircraft market. The A380 made its first flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in 25 October 2007 with Singapore Airlines.

An A380-900 version would be expected to have a seating capacity for 650 passengers in standard configuration, and approximately 900 passengers in an economy-only configuration. However, Airbus announced back in 2010 that A380-900 development was postponed, until production of current A380-800 stabilizes.
