Scottish documents prove Trump is trying to send US Air Force crews and others to his golf resort

Published

on

The New York Times released documents obtained through a Scottish Freedom of Information law that proves the Trump Organization worked to negotiate with a Glasgow-area airport to score more crews coming to President Donald Trump’s resort.

Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand broke a recent story that the U.S. military routed official planes to a small airport near his Turnberry golf resort. Without the airport, Turnberry would likely lose a lot of business. It’s already in difficult shape financially, losing millions.

The documents show a series of emails between Turnberry and the nearby airport. Turnberry asks the airport to recommend the Trump property to flight crews coming through the city, including military planes.

The exchange was part of a 2014 discussion, so it’s unclear why it wasn’t until recently that Turnberry had an uptick in military flights doing a stop-over at the Trump resort.

Glasgow’s Prestwick Airport had stated they don’t have a business relationship with Trump or his property.

Moon may be richer in water than thought — and it could help propel humans farther from earth

There may be far more water on the Moon than previously thought, according to two studies published Monday raising the tantalising prospect that astronauts on future space missions could find refreshment -- and maybe even fuel -- on the lunar surface.

The Moon was believed to be bone dry until around a decade ago when a series of findings suggested that our nearest celestial neighbour has traces of water trapped in the surface.

Two new studies published in Nature Astronomy on Monday suggest there could be much more water than previously thought, including ice stored in permanently shadowed "cold traps" at lunar polar regions.

Asymptomatic coronaagvirus sufferers lose antibodies sooner: study

Published

on

Asymptomatic coronavirus sufferers appear to lose detectable antibodies sooner than people who have exhibited Covid-19 symptoms, according to one of the biggest studies of its kind in Britain published on Tuesday.

The findings by Imperial College London and market research firm Ipsos Mori also suggest the loss of antibodies was slower in 18–24 year-olds compared to those aged 75 and over.

Overall, samples from hundreds of thousands of people across England between mid-June and late September showed the prevalence of virus antibodies fell by more than a quarter.

The research, commissioned by the British government and published Tuesday by Imperial, indicates people's immune response to Covid-19 reduces over time following infection.

Early voting to be hit by heavy rain and flooding as Hurricane Zeta barrels towards the Gulf Coast

Published

Hurricane Zeta is expected to make landfall near Louisiana's border with Mississippi on Wednesday evening as campaigns work to get supporters to the polls and convince any undecided voters to back their candidate.

"Hurricane conditions and life-threatening storm surge are possible along portions of the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday, and Storm Surge and Hurricane Watches are in effect," the National Hurricane Center warned.

"Between Tuesday night and Thursday, heavy rainfall is expected from portions of the central Gulf Coast into the southern Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic states near and in advance of Zeta. This rainfall will lead to flash, urban, small stream, and minor river flooding," the center explained.
