Everton eyeing second Anton Donkor loan deal

  Everton eyeing second Anton Donkor loan deal Everton brought in Anton Donkor on loan from Wolfsburg during the January transfer window primarily to play for their U23 side but who knows, perhaps there was a long-term plan in place to sign him permanently for the first-team. Unfortunately for the German youth international, he made just three appearances for the Toffees’ U23 team before suffering a season-ending ankle injury. The 19-year-old has since returned to Germany for rehabilitation on his injury, but U23s coach David Unsworth seems to have opened the door to a possible return next season. “All the scans were that he didn’t require the op but he is being rehabilitated back in Germany so we’ll pick that one back up again in the summer and see what we can do,” Unsworth is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo. The initial loan contract including a purchasing option of £1.5m, a clause which Everton would certainly be interested in building into a second loan contract, if not triggering in the summer should they be willing to take the risk on Donkor.

I know, you've heard it all before, and so have I. But this latest flying car prototype at least looks cool.

It's no roadster from "The Jetsons" or "Back to the Future." But all the same, if a new test vehicle is any indication, we may finally get our wish for a flying car. Well, at least someday.

Meet the Lilium Jet, a funky carlike thing with 36-propellers spread across its wings. Despite its seemingly small design, the company claims it can fly five people nearly 200 miles in an hour, all powered by an electric battery. What's more, it takes off vertically.

Now, we've heard promises of flying cars before, sure. And you should be skeptical. But Wired actually got to see a full-size prototype take off, land and fly a short distance. So, that's a step in the right direction, yes?

It'll still be a while before the future truly arrives. But in the meantime, here's a video from the company, of the prototype's maiden voyage.

Mom Thanks Woman For Calming Down 4-Month-Old Baby Girl During Flight .
The mom said she was surprised anyone would offer. A mom was extremely grateful after a flight attendant was able to calm down her 4-month-old daughter during a flight. Whitney Poyntz said she was traveling from Palm Springs to Calgary earlier this month when her daughter, Kennedi, awoke on the WestJest flight at the sound of the captain speaking over the intercom.  “Our daughter was asleep when we boarded so we figured it would be an easy peasy flight, man were we wrong,” Poyntz wrote on her post thanking the airline.
