It is known for being the most expensive city in the world, but these aerial images are going far in providing a side of Singapore that’s rarely been captured before. The impressive photos were captured by photographer Chia Joel using a DJI Phantom 3 Drone. Describing his work, chiaJoel said: ‘My aerial adventures consist of a number of important and well thought-out processes. It takes a lot of prep before shots like these ever come to fruition. ‘Most of the time, after a day of flying, I end up so fascinated by how somewhere so ordinary or perhaps so common or random, can turn out to be a piece of art. ‘I hope to rekindle the love for Singapore, old or new, once again and hope to remind people that beauty can indeed be found here in Singapore if you just keep an open mind, and are willing to see things from a new perspective.’

"Now that commodity prices have bounced back, the discount small suppliers can offer versus the Big Six has been shrinking," said Roland Vetter, head of research at commodity investment firm CF Partners.

By Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy ship fired warning shots toward an Iranian fast-attack craft that approached two U.S. ships, a Pentagon spokesman said on Thursday, in the most serious of a number of incidents in the Gulf area this week.

By Jonathan Cable LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's vote to leave the European Union will have a negative impact on both prices and turnover in the UK housing market, with foreign investors set to benefit most from bargains among sterling-priced assets, a Reuters poll found. "But demographics remain a positive driver, banks remain open for business and we envisage slower (economic growth) rather than a collapse." Nearly all respondents said Britain's pending departure from the EU - the details of which have yet to be thrashed out - would hurt house prices as well as turnover, which matters more for housing's contribution to the overall economy. Just over a third of respondents have pencilled in a fall in house prices next year, but those falls were quite tame compared to the heady rises seen during the boom years.
The planet, called Proxima b, orbits Proxima Centauri - the closest star to our solar system - and is about 1.3 times bigger than Earth. Because Proxima Centauri radiates much less heat than the Sun, the planet occupies the "habitable zone" where temperatures are mild enough to allow liquid surface water. Proxima b is only four light years away from Earth and Professor Abraham Loeb, from Harvard University, has raised the possibility of humans one day colonising the planet.
