Hawk attacks postman in Calgary

A daring hawk attacked repeatedly a postman from Calgary, Canada. If everyone would expect a furious dog to be the number one enemy of the postal carriers, this time it turned out that a very aggresive hawk hunted repeatedly an employee of the Canadian post service, forcing the man in the end to wear a bike helmet. Still, this was not enough for the flying foe.
It looks like the hawk has a special hate for a single postman. The attaks started in june and increased in frequency and aggresiveness as well. The man began using a helmet for protection but the bird did not give up and continued the favorite attacking strategy. Following this threatening events, the postal services for about 150 homes in Calgary were suspended and the post office officials wait for the hawks to migrate to the south and this is expected to happen in a few days.

Two asteroids to pass near Earth within Moon distance

Two asteroids will approach the Earth and will pass within a shorter range than the Moon, on Wednesday, 8 September 2010. The two asteroids with unrelated orbits will travel around by almost 11 hours apart from each other and will not be visible for the bare eye. Instead both can be observed with medium-sized amateur telescopes at the closest approach to Earth. The larger asteroid 2010 RX30 is estimated to have between 10 to 20 meters in size and is expected to be the first to pass nearby at about 248000 km from Earth (0.6 lunar distances) at 2:51 a.m PDT (5:51 am EDT). The smaller asteroid 2010 RF12 with a size between 6 to 14 meters will pass within just 0.2 lunar distances (79000 km) and is expected to arrive at 2:12 p.m PDT (5:12 p.m EDT). The orbits of the two objects are still higher than the geostationary (geosynchronous) orbits of the communication satellites which lie at 36000 km above the Earth.

Felipe Massa wrong start Belgium F1 Grand Prix - Amateur video

FIA started an investigation following the release on the internet of an amateur video showing the wrong start of Ferrari's driver Felipe Massa during Belgium F1 race. After the warm-up lap, Massa's bolide had an incorect position being too close to the start line and giving an advantage of a half-car length to the Brazilian driver. It was a weird situation because the race director Charile Whiting did not receive any notice from the people on the track and also the electronic systems did not detect the wrong-going start.
Felipe Massa will not be penalized, however FIA wants to make sure that such incidents will not repeat in the future. Massa ranked fourth at Spa-Francorchamps and his position will stand as the result was final and not contested during the race.
