    Alfie Evans: 'Darker side' to offers of support for terminally-ill toddler's family, says senior judge

    A senior judge in the case of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans has suggested there is a "darker side" to some offers of support for the family. Lord Justice McFarlane raised concerns that people in a similar position to Alfie’s parents, who are fighting to keep their son on life-support treatment, could be vulnerable to receiving bad advice. At a Court of Appeal hearing on Wednesday, the judge said there was evidence Tom Evans and Kate James had made decisions based on incorrect guidance.

    Anthony Joshua offered $50m to fight Deontay Wilder as US boxer sets 24-hour deadline for world heavyweight unification bout

    Anthony Joshua has been offered a guaranteed purse of $50million (£35.9m) by Deontay Wilder's team in order to arrange a much-anticipated world heavyweight unification title showdown. Joshua has been given 24 hours to sign the contract, labelled "a wonderful PR move" by his promoter Eddie Hearn, and the Watford fighter wasted little time in responding to his rival, saying: "Let's roll". The pair hold all four major world titles between them and speculation of a bout has intensified since Joshua defeated Joseph Parker last month to unify the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.

    The Reader: Corbyn’s stance on Zionism shows that he still doesn’t get it

    WhilE Jeremy Corbyn’s words (“What I’m doing to banish anti-Semitism from the Labour Party”, April 24) are no doubt a vast improvement on that said previously, they still display an astonishing level of ignorance after all the events over recent weeks surrounding the issue. Mr Corbyn states “anti-Zionism is not in itself anti-Semitic”, showing his continued lack of understanding. Indeed, criticism of an Israeli government policy or action — be it Netanyahu’s or otherwise — is definitely not anti-Semitic, just as criticism is made of many democratically elected governments around the world on a daily basis.

    Russian Chemical Weapons Scientist Run Over By Car, But Says It Was An Accident

    A Russian scientist has been hit by a car on Tuesday, shortly after contradicting the Kremlin and confirming that his nerve agent is what mysteriously hospitalized an ex-Russian spy. Vladimir Uglev, one of the chemists who developed the so-called Novichok nerve agent for the Soviet Union, has repeatedly said that it was exactly such a substance that poisoned former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter last month. Uglev has now been hospitalized himself, after a car nearly ran him over near his home.

    Qualcomm chip sales indicate some smartphone strength

    The results announced in Qualcomm's smartphone chip business contrasted to those from major mobile phone components makers in Asia, including TSMC and SK Hynix Inc , which have warned of slower growth in their smartphone chip divisions. While revenue from Qualcomm's chips division - its largest - rose 6 percent in the three months ended March 25, revenue from the licensing business plunged 44 percent, reflecting the withholding of revenue in a high-profile patent battle with Apple Inc . "Qualcomm posted solid results, but its guidance pointed to a softer handset market, particularly in China," said Moody's Senior Vice President Rick Lane.

    Colossal cosmic collision alters understanding of early universe

    Astronomers have detected the early stages of a colossal cosmic collision, observing a pile-up of 14 galaxies 90 percent of the way across the observable universe in a discovery that upends assumptions about the early history of the cosmos. Astronomers call the object a galactic protocluster, a precursor to the type of enormous galaxy clusters that are the largest-known objects in today's universe. It marked the first time scientists observed the birth of a galaxy cluster, with at least 14 galaxies crammed into an area only about four times the size of our average-sized Milky Way galaxy.
