A 37-year-old daredevil has stared death in the face after flying 100mph through a small opening in a mountain range in China.

Jeb Corliss, whose jump was billed as the ‘flying dagger’, managed to complete the task even though the gap in Langshan mountain, in Zhejiang Province, was only 10ft at its narrowest point.

‘This is the greatest thing I’ve ever done up to this point. I am just so, so happy that we were able to do it,’ he said.

‘I was really worried that it wasn’t going to happen. I was sure it wasn’t going to happen. I’ve no idea. I just didn’t want to disappoint everyone.’

The American thanked his Chinese hosts and said he was pleased he hadn’t let them and his supporters down.

He added: ‘I am really glad I was able to do it. This was really, really, this…

Liverpool Ladies end Arsenal’s dominance in England by capturing FA WSL title

Metro

Liverpool Ladies have sealed the FA Women’s Super League title – ending Arsenal’s nine-year dominance of women’s football in this country.

A 2-0 victory for the Reds over Bristol Academy this afternoon secured them the championship. Defeat would have seen runners-up Bristol pip them to top spot.

Louise Fors put Liverpool ahead in the first half from the penalty spot after German Nicole Rolser won the spot-kick and Amanda da Costa missed a good chance to secure victory after the break.

Reds nerves were settled, though, when Katrin Omarsdottir doubled their lead following a lay-off from Natasha Dowie, handing the silverware to the home side – their first ever WSL title.

Liverpool boss Matt Beard said: ‘The players have been fantastic and they deserve it. They have done this themselves by spending time together off the pitch and creating a great team spirit.’

Homeland season 3 has a ‘quieter kind of energy’, says producer

Metro

Homeland executive producer Alex Gansa has revealed that series 3 of Homeland will be ‘quieter’ compared with the previous two seasons.

The new series is set to start tonight on US TV and will premiere on Channel 4 on Sunday October 6 at 9pm.

Gansa told TVGuide.com: ‘Everything that happens in season 3 grows out of the attack on the CIA.

‘We are in the wake of the attack and all the ramifications of that event.

‘So by its very nature, it’s a period of reassessment, a period of getting back on our feet. It’s a reflective beginning.

‘I don’t think it’s any slower, but there’s actually certainly not a lot of action. It’s a quieter kind of energy.’

Fans will be eager to find out what has happened to Brody (Damian Lewis) since his lover Carrie (Claire Danes) helped him to escape the country.

Darul de la absolvirea școlii

Trufe și Aguride

Un tânăr, singur la părinti, urma să-și încheie studiile academice. De luni de zile admirase o mașină de lux expusă în vitrina unui magazin auto. Știa că tatăl lui își poate permite să o cumpere, așa că le-a dat de înțeles părinților că ar fi foarte fericit să o primească în dar, la absolvire. În ziua acelei festivității, tatăl și-a chemat fiul în birou. L-a felicitat pentru anii de studiu, i-a spus cât de mândru este de el și cât de mult îl iubește, apoi i-a întins o cutie. Fiul a deschis cutia, sperând că va găsi în ea cheile mașinii, dar, în locul ei, găsi o biblie. Un volum îmbrăcat în piele, cu numele lui scris în litere aurite pe copertă. Era frumos, cei drept, dar… nu era ceea ce se aștepta el! Adânc dezamăgit, fiul trânti Biblia pe biroul tatălui și ieși din cameră. În acea zi s-a…

To get the full advantages of garlic, it should be eaten fresh and raw. Many people can’t tolerate the taste of raw garlic; using it lightly cooked is better than not using it at all.

Bill Clinton: Obama Can’t Negotiate With GOP on Shutdown

Swampland

Former President Bill Clinton, who successfully outmaneuvered Republicans over a government shutdown in the 1990s, said Sunday that President Barack Obama is right not to give ground to the GOP this time around.

Clinton, knocking Republicans for using the threat of a shutting down the government or not increasing the debt limit  to delay Obama’s health care reform law, said on ABC’s This Week that “the current price of stopping [a shutdown] is higher than the price of letting the Republicans do it and taking their medicine.”

The House passed a bill Saturday night that would continue to fund the government, while also delaying implementation of the health law for a year. The measure is dead on arrival in the Senate, and Obama has promised to veto it if passed anyway.

“You can’t negotiate over that,” Clinton said. “And I think he’s right not to.”

Barring a last-minute deal, funding…
