Daredevil makes return Base Jump from 4,000ft peak after recovering from 100mph fall
By Scott Warren

Daredevil: Boole with his state-of-the-art suit

A daredevil father who almost died in a 6,000ft fall a year ago has returned to his death-defying pastime.

James Boole, 32, broke his back when he had parachute problems while using his winged 'bat suit', but has made his return Base Jump, gliding safely to earth after racing through the air.

'I felt ecstatic,' he told The Sun. 'It was great.'

The accident last Easter saw his parachute fail, his life saved by a soft landing on deep snow after jumping from a Russian peak.

He hit the ground at about 100mph, injuring his back, lungs, ribs and teeth, leading to a year-long recovery at his home in Tamworth, Staffordshire, which included wearing a body brace for three months.

For his return jump he chose the 4,000ft Mount Trento in northern Italy, and admitted to being terrified as he prepared to launch himself off the side.

After mustering the courage, he glided safely to 500ft before a successful parachute deployment delivered him softly to the valley floor.

In action: Boole and a fellow jumper speed through the air

'I really thought that I might never be able to jump again,' he said. 'As I stood on the cliff edge I still had some Elvis knee-knocking going on.'

His wife Kristina, 24, and 15-month-old daughter Melissa were waiting for him at the bottom.

He said: 'Obviously my family were very concerned I would want to do something like this again. But they understand what a big part parachuting plays in my life.'

Base Jumping stands for 'building, aerial, span and earth' - the range of four jumps its participants seek to make. It is illegal in most countries.

Wayne Rooney exits on crutches: United seek to allay fears England striker has broken his foot again
By Ian Ladyman

Feeling the pain: Wayne Rooney in agony after injuring his ankle

This was the moment a nation held its breath as Wayne Rooney clutched his ankle in agony at the end of Manchester United's 2-1 Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich.

The striker on whom England's World Cup hopes rest was injured in the dying seconds last night after Mario Gomez trod on his right foot. He will be assessed today but looks likely to miss Saturday's pivotal title clash with Chelsea.

The sight of him limping off sparked fears for South Africa, particularly as he suffered a metatarsal injury in the same foot four years ago almost to the day.

United led through a 64-second Rooney goal but an equaliser from Franck Ribery - deflected in off Rooney - and a stoppage-time winner from Ivica Olic gave the German side victory.

Moment of impact: Mario Gomez treads on the foot of Wayne Rooney

Rooney, who was also booked, was injured in the build-up to the winning goal.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: 'Wayne has got a kick on the ankle. We don't know how serious it is.'

United sought to allay fears that Rooney had broken his foot again, though he left the Allianz Arena on crutches and with his right leg in a brace.

Worrying sight: Injured Wayne Rooney is helped off the pitch

Ferguson was in no mood to absolve his team for a defeat that leaves the quarter-final tie delicately balanced going into Wednesday's second leg at Old Trafford.

He said: 'We never played well and gave the ball away all night. That's not like us. The winning goal was a terrible one

Walking wounded: Wayne Rooney leaves the Allianz Arena on crutches

'At least we have an away goal. Bayern have a strong chance but at home we should be confident. Our keeper made saves time and time again and kept us in it.'

Bayern coach Louis van Gaal believes Rooney's absence could be crucial.

The Dutchman said: 'He is their most important player and if you looked at United's statistics you would see their second highest scorer had been their opponents. They had 11 own goals. That's how important Rooney is.'

Quick fire: Wayne Rooney opens the scoring after just 64 seconds

'Super-Taser' shotgun bullet that can knock down criminals from 100ft assessed by Home Office
By Daily Mail Reporter

Threatening: The electronic Taser bullet is fired from a regular shotgun and can incapacitate criminals from 100 feet

A new 'super-Taser' stun gun that fires a 500-volt wireless 'bullet' up to 100ft is being considered for use by UK police forces, the Home Office said today.

The extended Range Electronic Projectile (XREP), already used by police in the U.S., fires a barbed electrode from a modified 12-bore shotgun.

It hooks into the target's skin before administering a 20-second shock which renders the subject totally incapacitated.

Under consideration: Amnesty International claim 334 people in the US died between 2001 and 2008 after being targeted by the stun gun

And if the recipient tries to pull the device off, 'reflex engagement electrodes' complete a circuit that sends the shock through the subject's body through their hand.

Amnesty International has expressed 'serious concern' about the XREP and are worried by news it could be authorised in the UK.

XREP manufacturers Taser International describe the Taser as a 'revolutionary' step towards immobilising dangerous criminals from a greater distance than ever before.

Traditional hand-held Taser stun guns can fire electrified darts up to 25 feet and deliver a five-second shock, which can be re-triggered.

A spokesman for XREP said: 'This is the first wireless projectile that can deliver less-than lethal electro-muscular incapacitation at long range.

The bullet hooks into the target's skin before administering a 20-second shock

'Launched from a 12-gauge shotgun platform, this innovative device is set to revolutionise law enforcement operations and will give military forces an effective, less lethal option up to a range of 20 metres.'

Amnesty International claim 334 people in the U.S. died between 2001 and 2008 after being targeted by the stun gun.

UK's arms programme director, Oliver Sprague, said: 'This is effectively a shotgun that fires electric-shock bullets.

'Because this bullet can be fired wire-free from a standard shotgun there is a heightened risk of causing serious injury to the face and head.

'We're also concerned by the fact that these weapons will deliver an excruciatingly painful shock for 20 seconds.

'Amnesty would be very alarmed if the Home Office were to consider authorising this weapon to police officers in the UK.'

A Home Office Spokesperson said: 'The Home Office Scientific Development Branch is considering the XREP as part of its ongoing remit to evaluate new technologies.

'All new technologies are subjected to the most stringent safety tests and independent medical evaluation before they can be considered for police issue.

'The Government and the police have no current plans to introduce XREP Tasers into service.'

Tasers have been used in around 6,000 incidents in England and Wales since they were introduced in April 2004.

When introduced Tasers were only used by firearms-qualified officers but following successful trials are now issued to officers with specialist training.

MP David Hanson said this week: 'Tasers are a vital police tool which help protect both officers and the public.

'They do not even have to be discharged to help defuse violent or dangerous situations, often just drawing the device can be enough to deter criminals.'

SNSD commercials for Nintendo DSi

SNSD releases story version of Run Devil Run MV on iPhone
Remember we reported earlier about the story version for SNSD’s new song, Run Devil Run?

Many of you were kind of disappointed that the Run Devil Run MV did not offer a continuation of the storyline that was teased at the end of the Oh! music video.

Well, SM Entertainment has finally acted and for those who have bought the SNSD iPhone application, you will be able to be one of the first to see this story version MV exclusively before anyone else. The story version MV and many other exclusive stuff not available elsewhere were uploaded on the 30th onto the paid application.

But for those without iPhones, don’t fret as the MV will be uploaded onto various portal sites tomorrow afternoon on the 31st. Some techie SNSD fan might also try to extract the MV from the iPhone application before SM uploads them tomorrow.

Here you go. Don’t be too disappointed after watching it.

The Wonder Girls were recently in Korea to shoot their title track music video for their upcoming U.S album.

To keep their fans updated, the girls uploaded a video message on their official Youtube channel on the 29th, thanking their fans for their support. This video also saw the first appearance of new member, Hye Lim together with the Wonder Girls on their Youtube.

Yenny also said that they read every comments on their videos so hopefully you got the message.

The most important message came from leader Sunye who said, “…we will be come back soon with our really new songs…“, and you can see from their reactions how excited they are to be singing new stuff! I’m sure many us of share the same sentiments with them.

They also released a video with the same message for Korean fans.


Super Junior’s Yesung sings for Cinderella’s Sister music video
We reported earlier that a full-length music video for KBS2TV’s new drama, Cinderella’s Sister was in the works and it would be featuring the vocals of Super Junior’s Yesung.

And just one day away from the actual broadcast, the full-length music video has finally been released and if you thought the teaser photos released in the past few weeks were intense, you ain’t see nothing yet.

Together with the vocals of Yesung (who is a big fan of Moon Geun Young), the drama looks like it’s going to be a smashing hit.

With the exit of the ratings monster Chuno last week, the Wed-Thus timeslot will for the first time in months see all 3 competing dramas from SBS (Personal Taste), KBS (Cinderella’s Sister) and MBC (Prosecutor Princess) start from the same starting point.

With the exception of Cinderella’s Sister which is likely to be a thriller, the other two are romantic comedies. It will thus be interesting to see which drama will rise to the top after their first 2 episodes! What will you be watching on March 31st?

Two female suicide bombers kill at least 37 commuters in bomb attacks on Moscow tube trains
By Mail Foreign Service

Splattered with blood, a wounded man makes a phone call on his mobile outside the Park Kultury metro station shortly after a female suicide bomber blew herself up

Two bombs, 40mins apart, detonated during morning rush hour

At least 37 people dead, 65 injured

No group claims responsibility so far. Rouble falls

Two female suicide bombers killed at least 37 people and injured 65 by targeting two packed Moscow tube trains during the busy rush hour today.

President Dmitry Medvedev declared Russia would act 'without compromise' to root out terrorists as he ordered airports to be put on alert and security to be stepped up throughout the country.

The two bombs are the worst attack on the Russian capital for six years and no group has yet claimed responsibility.

But suspicion has fallen on Muslim militants from the North Caucasus, where the Kremlin is fighting a growing Islamist insurgency spreading from Chechnya to neighbouring Dagestan and Ingushetia.

Witnesses spoke of panic at the two underground stations this morning after the blasts as people fell over each other in dense smoke and dust, trying to escape.

In scenes that will have been chillingly familiar to Londoners after the July 7 bombings in 2005, bloodied and injured passengers emerged onto the streets looking bewildered.

*** Scroll down for video report ***

Desolate: A wounded woman covered in dust with her left eye blackened outside Park Kultury metro station

The first explosion tore through the second carriage of a metro train just before 8am as it stood at the Lubyanka station, close to the headquarters of Russia's main domestic security service FSB. It killed at least 23 people.

About 40 minutes later, another blast in the second carriage of a train waiting at the Park Kultury metro station, opposite Gorky Park, killed 12 to 14 more people.

One passenger told the RIA news agency: 'I was in the middle of the train when somewhere in the first or second carriage there was a loud blast. I felt the vibrations reverberate through my body.

'People were yelling like hell. There was a lot of smoke and in about two minutes everything was covered in smoke.'

Another called Alexei added: 'I was moving up on the escalator when I heard a loud bang, a blast. A door near the passage way arched, was ripped out and a cloud of dust came down on the escalator.

'People started running, panicking, falling on each other,' he said.
Some of the injured were airlifted to emergency hospitals in helicopters.

Dozens of commuters were helped from each station to waiting ambulances.

Surveillance camera footage posted on the internet showed several motionless bodies lying on the floor or slumped against the wall in Lubyanka station lobby and emergency workers crouched over victims, trying to treat them.

Rain reveals second Love Song MV teaser
After Rain revealed his first MV teaser of his title track Love Song from his BACK TO THE BASIC special album, things started to heat up as the photos from the MV were released.

Today, another teaser of Love Song was revealed!

But this time, the teaser featured the world star along with the female lead, actress Han Ye Seul! The teaser, which lasted around 30 seconds, showed Rain and Han Ye Seul’s heartwarming kissing scene. Check it out below!

With the comeback of two of Korea’s tremendous solo artists, Rain and Lee Hyori, will the idol groups stand a chance against them? We’ll have to wait and see.

Stay tuned to the release of Rain’s album on April 1st!

Lee Hyori’s fourth album teaser is out!
The time has come. The D-Day for Queen of Kpop Lee Hyori’s fourth album, H-Logic is quickly approaching and, as expected, the teaser has been released today!

I sometimes enjoy the teaser more than the actual song release because the teaser definitely gets you pumping. All teasers leave us with unanswered questions and this one does as well.

Of course we still have a lot to look forward to with the music video and the song itself so don’t think it’s over anytime soon.

The Lady GaGa resemblance we spoke of before is present in the teaser as well. There are mixed opinions about this; while it’s cool to see the influence GaGa has on Korean artists, it’s best to be original.

Well, you guys have been waiting for a very very long time for this one so here it is.

Kara, Brown Eyed Girls and 4minute perform at the Lotte Giants Concert
Some of Korea’s finest girl groups graced the stage of the Lotte Giants Concert held this weekend as Kara, Brown Eyed Girls and 4minute appeared to perform Lupin, Abracadabra and Hot Issue respectively.

Seeing as we were unable to meet our favorite idols on stage at MBC Music Core and SBS Inkigayo, the performances at the Lotte Giants Concert served as a pleasant alternative. Additionally, it was nice to find Brown Eyed Girls and 4minute performing as a group again, as the two have taken an indefinite hiatus from the music scene.

Kara – Lupin

Brown Eyed Girls – Abracadabra

4minute – Hot Issue


Dancing On Ice: Hayley Tamaddon proves the bookies right as she is crowned queen of the ice
By Emily Sheridan

We are the champions: Hayley Tamaddon and her partner Daniel Whiston proudly hold their Dancing On Ice 2010 trophy

Hayley Tamaddon and her partner Daniel Whiston have been crowned the winners of Dancing On Ice 2010.

Favourites from the beginning of the show and top of the leader board every week but one, it was no surprise when host Phillip Schofield announced the former Emmerdale actress, 33, was queen of the ice.

The couple beat actor Gary Lucy and Maria Filippov to become king and queen of the ice after a skate-off inspired by mentors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean's famous Bolero routine from 26 years ago.

Ecstatic: Hayley and Daniel react after they're told they have won this year's series, as Gary Lucy and Maria Filippov prove gracious losers

The winners were crowned after a two hour live finale, which saw Hayley and Gary perform two earlier dances along with third place contestant, Hollyoaks actor Kieron Richardson.

Since the new series started in January, Tamaddon has consistently topped the leader board, apart from week 10, when she was beaten by Danniella Westbrook.

Sunday's show started off with all three finalists showing off their flying skills with the help of harnesses.

Stunning sequence: Hayley and Daniel wowed the judges one last time with their own take on Bolero

Kieron and Brianne received 24 for their performance to One Day Like This by Elbow.

Despite his previous caustic comments to Kieron, Jason Gardiner said: 'I thought there were moments, particularly off the ice that were great. Ultimately your presentation has improved.'

Emma Bunton agreed: 'You was (sic) graceful. Your posture is better flying than on the ice.'

Tender hooks: Three were whittled down to two after Kieron Richardson and his partner Brianne Delcourt (left) were told they were in third place

As expected, Hayley and Daniel's first dance of the night met expectations and the pair even invented their own move - the flying skydive.

They scored 29 for their sequence of Eva Cassidy's Songbird, which Emma described as 'magical'.

Gary's first dance of the night was David Bowie's Starman, which saw him to plenty of Superman-style soaring through the air.

Gary and Maria received 24.5, with the judges admitting the former Bill star's transitions from the air to ice weren't quite smooth enough.

Soaring: Kieron and Brianne during their flying routine

Dangerously hovering over the ice: Hayley gives her partner Daniel a lift

Robin Cousins said: 'I'll give you some credit. I wasn't expecting you to do as well as you did, you proved you have a bit of grace there and you pulled it out.'

The second dance of the night - and the final for Kieron - was each celebrity's favourite of the series.

Kieron and Brianne chose their punk routine to the Buzzcocks' Ever Fallen In Love from week seven.

All white on the night: Gary flies to the strains of David Bowie's Starman
The first time round scored 19.5, but Kieron's experience in recent weeks ended up with the pair receiving a 24.5 - their highest score ever.

Nicky said: 'I always love the way you commit yourself and attack the pieces you're given. You really sold it for me.'

Described as one of the best ever dances from all five series of Dancing On Ice, Hayley and Daniel's favourite dance was their Slumdog Millionaire routine to Jai Ho!

Third and second place: Kieron and Brianne performed their Buzzcocks routine (left) and Gary and Maria's more gentler dance to What About Now

They scored all sixes again from the five judges, gaining the same 30 they received for the same routine from week nine.

Head judge Robin said: 'It was better than a week ago. Maybe cos its the final you were more focused. Flawless.

Karen Barber agreed: 'The speed was better. The clarity of your movements were amazing.'

Bollywood dreams: Hayley and Daniel repeated their popular Slumdog Millionaire routine to Jai Ho!

Before the Bolero skate-off, the rest of this series' contestants returned to perform a short dance with their professional partners.

Sinitta nearly stumbled twice, while a wobbly Bobby Davro pulled faces as he hung on to his partner for dear life.

Also returning were Jeremy Sheffield, Tana Ramsay, Heather Mills, Dr Hilary Jones, Sharron Davies, Emily Atack, Mikey Graham, Danny Young and Danniella Westbrook

Celebrate: Holly Willoughby, Christopher Dean, Jayne Torvill and Phillip Schofield join the winners after the show

The judges: (L-R) Karen Barber, Nicky Slater, Jason Gardiner, Emma Bunton and Robin Cousins

Seohyun throws the opening pitch for Doosan Bears
Black Soshi doesn’t just dominate the stage, they also dominate the pro baseball mound!

Changing gears from Oh! to Run Devil Run, the girls of SNSD started off the baseball season right by attending the opening game with the Doosan Bears vs Kia Tigers on the 28th.

The charming, innocent, and now enormously popular Seohyun had the honor of throwing the first pitch. Batting against Seohyun’s pitch was Yoona.

Of course, what would a baseball game be without a singing of the national anthem? And who better to sing it than SNSD’s lead vocalist and kid leader Taeyeon? Well, that’s exactly what she did, belting out Aegukga like the professional she is.

To cap it all off, SNSD also gave a performance of Oh!.
