Here's the good news: China has launched the first all-electric cargo ship. According to China Daily, the 230 foot long vessel is equipped with a 2,400 kWh lithium-ion battery that stores enough electrical energy to transport 2200 tons of cargo a distance of 50 miles on a single charge at a top speed of about 8 miles per hour. Time to recharge the battery is given as 2 hours, which is approximately the time needed to unload the ship at its destination.

Then there's the bad news.

The 18 piglets and two sows had survived the fire in Wiltshire in February, which saw 60 tonnes of hay catch fire. However, they did not survive the butcher's knife, and were turned into meat products this summer. Some of these bangers were given to the firefighters who saved them.

The 93-year-old bridge in Arkansas was deemed too weak to stand. But it turned out to be a wee bit stronger than authorities anticipated. On Tuesday, demolition crews wired the bridge with explosives to bring it down. There were a series of booms, some puffs of black smoke, and then... well... The bridge stayed put. The crowd that gathered to watch its demise was left with laughter instead of shouts of glee.
