U.S. Open 2015: Serena Williams' father 'not surprised'
Was it racism or a case of mistaken identity? When former tennis pro Jam℮s Blak℮, who is biracial, was tackled to the ground by police in New York this week, it came as no shock to the father of the game's first black female No. 1 player. "We've had so many things happen to people of my kind and my color, it's not surprising, not at all," the 73-year-old Richard Williams told **. That view is not shared by NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, who insists the Blak℮ incident was a case of mistaken identity, and a case of excessive force. "I don't believe that race was a factor," Bratton said. "This rush to put a race tag on it, I'm sorry, that's not involved in this at all." Williams' comments mirror those of his daughter Serena, who told ** ahead of her bid to make tennis history at this month's U.S. Open that "a lot of people in America and outside America are frustrated and concerned and really scared" about recent high-profile incidents involving police. For Richard Williams, who moved his young family from Michigan to the city of Compton in the early 1980s, the problem of racism in society has been a constant factor as his daughters Serena and Venus have grown into tennis champions. "I think it hasn't changed that much at all (since I was a kid) -- matter of fact it may have gotten worse, I don't know ... but I don't think it's changed that much," he told **.

Stonehenge researchers 'may have found largest neolithic site'
Nearly 100 stone monoliths found buried near Stonehenge could be the largest neolithic monument built in Britain, archaeologists believe. The 4,500-year-old stones, some measuring 15ft, were discovered under 3ft of earth using ground-penetrating radar at Durrington Walls "superhenge". The monument was on "an extraordinary scale" and unique, researchers said. The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes team has been creating an underground map of the area in a five-year project. The monument is just under two miles (3km) from Stonehenge, Wiltshire, and is thought to have been a ritual site. The stones are believed to have been deliberately toppled over the south-eastern edge of the bank of the circular enclosure before being incorporated into it. Lead researcher Vince Gaffney, of the University of Bradford, said: "We don't think there's anything quite like this anywhere else in the world. "This is completely new and the scale is extraordinary." Archaeologist Nick Snashall said: "The presence of what appear to be stones, surrounding the site of one of the largest neolithic settlements in Europe adds a whole new chapter to the Stonehenge story." The findings are being announced on the first day of the British Science Festival being held at the University of Bradford.

The man who leads with no limbs
The man standing before the stadium-sized crowd held the attention of thousands, in part because of humorous, yet moving, speech about the power of hope. But also because he was standing there at all. Nick Vujicic, the 32-year-old president of motivational speech marketer Attitude is Altitude, was born without arms or legs. Though he struggles with some practicalities of everyday living (brushing teeth, for example), he has become an in-demand inspirational speaker. There is no medical explanation for Vujicic’s physical disability, an extremely rare congenital disorder known as tetra-amelia syndrome. He has a small foot on his left hip which helps him balance. He can type, pick things up between his toes and even kick a ball. The self-confessed adrenalin junkie regularly swims and has gone skydiving. Confidence didn’t come naturally to Vujicic. Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, he struggled with depression and was bullied at school. When he was just 10 years old, he attempted suicide. Over time, Vujicic worked on adopting a positive attitude, and, at 17, an encounter with his high school janitor inspired him to go into public speaking. The charismatic Australian now travels the world addressing huge crowds, including business groups and schoolchildren. He has visited more than 50 countries and given thousands of talks. The author of memoir Love Without Limits now lives in California with his wife, Kanae, and their 2-year-old son. They are expecting another child later in 2015. Vujicic runs a non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs, as well as Attitude is Altitude, which markets his motivational speeches and campaigns against bullying.

Singer Lynsey de Paul dies aged 64
Singer and songwriter Lynsey de Paul has died at the age of 64, following a suspected brain haemorrhage. De Paul, who represented the UK in the 1977 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Rock Bottom, had five top 20 UK chart hits, including 1972's Sugar Me. She became the first woman to win an Ivor Novello award for songwriting. "Although she was small in stature, she was very big in positive personality," said her agent Michael Joyce. "She was always so positive about everything." "Sad news of Lynsey De Paul, beautiful and talented singer/songwriter," tweeted actor John Challis, best known as Boycie in Only Fools and Horses. "Storm in a Teacup, one of my favourite songs." Broadcaster and writer Gyles Brandeth called de Paul "gifted, funny, sparky, charming". "A lovely talent & person," he wrote on Twitter. Her sense of humour informed her close friendship with Spike Milligan, who reportedly nicknamed the diminutive star 'Looney De Small'. De Paul, who broke into the music scene in 1971, followed up her Sugar Me hit with Getting a Drag, reaching number 18 in the charts. Her 1973 hit Won't Somebody Dance With Me won her her first Ivor Novello award. A second Ivor Novello Award followed a year later for No Honestly, which was also the theme tune to the ITV comedy of the same name, starring Pauline Collins and John Alderton. She also wrote the theme to Esther Rantzen's BBC One series Hearts Of Gold. Paying tribute, Rantzen, who fronted the show, called her "a renaissance woman". "She could do everything - she could sing, she could compose, she was an immensely talented artist," she said. "She became a huge star but she was also a loyal and generous friend. It's an absolutely tragic loss." De Paul never married but was romantically linked to a string of well-known men including Sean Connery, Dudley Moore and Ringo Starr. An interview with the Mail in 2007 revealed she had five offers of marriage, including one from James Coburn and another from Chas Chandler, bassist with The Animals. She reached the height of her popularity in the mid-1970s, with number one hits in Switzerland, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands - although never the UK. However, her popularity waned in the late 1970s although she continued to compose and perform, famously singing her own song at the Conservative Party conference in 1983. She also starred in celebrity quiz shows such as Blankety Blank and more recently, reality shows including Cash in the Attic and Come Dine With Me. In 1992, De Paul presented a documentary about women's self-defence, called Eve Fights Back, which won a Royal Television Society award. The singer had spoken previously of her abusive childhood, and her history of violent relationships. Her niece, Olivia Rubin, told the Times her death was "completely unexpected". "She was a vegetarian, she didn't smoke, she didn't drink - she was amazing, in fact." "Am in utter shock at sudden death of my friend Lynsey de Paul," echoed broadcaster Russell Kane, on Twitter. "We were chatting in the post office just two weeks ago. Can't believe it."

Buddy Holly plane crash may be re-examined
CNN)It's the day the music died. In the early morning hours of February 3, 1959, a small aircraft carrying Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson crashed a few miles from Mason City Municipal Airport, near Clear Lake, Iowa. Pilot Roger Peterson also died in the crash. The voice of the hit songs "Peggy Sue" and "That'll Be the Day" was silenced forever. A few months later, the Civil Aeronautics Board blamed the accident primarily on pilot error and secondarily on snow (PDF). Now, the National Transportation Safety Board, the successor to the aeronautics board, may be taking another look. The NTSB received a letter from aviation enthusiast L.J. Coon, a self-described retired pilot and aircraft dispatcher, asking it to look at other possible contributing factors to the crash. They include the aircraft's weight and balance calculations (for passengers, baggage and fuel), possible issues with rudder panels and possible carburetor Induction icing, Coon told CNN in an email. "You have gotten our attention," the NTSB wrote in February, saying it would examine the information he provided, Coon's email said. The NTSB never fully closes a case, but any petition to re-examine a crash needs to show that there is new information suggesting the original probable cause is incorrect, NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss said. The agency has two months to review the petition and decide whether there's new information that would make it revisit the case. In 1959, Holly, Valens and Richardson were part of the Winter Dance Party, a tour that had started in Milwaukee and traveled to small cities in Minnesota and Iowa. The musicians had traveled in subfreezing temperatures in unheated buses, and people were getting sick. Holly booked the four-seat aircraft to fly to Fargo, North Dakota, where he planned to finally do laundry and rest in advance of the group's next concert in nearby Moorhead, Minnesota. Country legend Waylon Jennings, then Holly's bass player, gave up his seat to a sick Richardson. Jennings, who died in 2002 at age 64, was haunted by his decision for years to come. Dion and the Belmonts were also on the tour, but Dion gave up his seat on the plane after hearing the $36 per-person price tag. He was the only headliner not on the plane and the only headliner who didn't die that night. The crash has inspired generations of artists. Lou Diamond Phillips played Ritchie Valens (originally Valenzuela) in the 1987 hit movie "La Bamba." Gary Busey played Holly in the 1978 movie "The Buddy Holly Story." Don McLean, who was inspired by Holly's music, memorialized that day as "The Day the Music Died" in his 1971 song "American Pie."

Why Dave Mackay hated the picture of him confronting Billy Bremner
Former Tottenham captain, who has died aged 80, always claimed one of football's most famous images portrayed him as "a bully" It is still one of the most iconic images in football. It is August 1966, the first day of the new season, and Dave Mackay - shirt tucked in, sleeves rolled up, hair slicked back - is striding across White Hart Lane's pristine turf, exuding an air of complete menace. His face contorted in a snarl, his right fist has clamped around the shirt of Leeds United's Billy Bremner, who is holding out his arms in a gesture of submission. In the background, a young and bronzed Terry Venables watches on, his eyes wide with concern, while the referee already has his whistle to his lips. It is a snapshot not just of a moment in time, but of football's forgotten culture, an age when hard men were precisely that and rough and ready physicality was not just tolerated in the sport, but actively encouraged. Yet, for all that the picture has become a love letter for a time when hardly a game passed by without a flurry of fisticuffs, the man at the centre of it could not abide it. Mackay, who passed away on Monday at the age of 80, always maintained that the picture was a grossly unfair representation of his playing style, even if he dealt with all the attention it provoked with typical good grace. Speaking to the journalist Ian Abrahams five years ago, Mackay said: "The famous picture is one that a lot of football fans like. "I am into my seventies now and I still get copies of them sent to my house for me to sign, which I do, all of them. While other people like the photograph, I don't because it portrays me as a bully, which I am not and never have been." In a separate magazine interview, Mackay revealed the reasons behind his volcanic reaction. He said: “He was a brilliant little player but a dirty little b******. He kicked me in the leg I’d just come back from breaking twice. If he’d kicked the other one, I could have accepted that. But he kicked the broken one and that really annoyed me. I could’ve killed him that day.” Mackay was probably being unduly harsh on himself - not least because the idea of any player, even one as fearsome as Mackay, "bullying" Billy Bremner seems scarcely credible. And what of the fall-out from the incident? If it were to happen today, a confrontation between two of the foremost players of their age would provoke Twitter outrage, days of hand-wringing and FA inquiries. But back in 1966, it did not even merit a red card. "In the end the referee just gave us a talking-to, for which I was relieved," Mackay told Abrahams. "I had got away with it and was so happy, because it maintained my record of never having been sent off. I may have been dirty sometimes, but I never got sent off in my whole life, even as a schoolboy."

Meet the 10-year-old maths genius who's just enrolled at college
(CNN) At first glance Esther Okade seems like a normal 10-year-old. She loves dressing up as Elsa from "Frozen," playing with Barbie dolls and going to the park or shopping. But what makes the British-Nigerian youngster stand out is the fact that she's also a university undergraduate. Esther, from Walsall, an industrial town in the UK's West Midlands region, is one of the country's youngest college freshmen. The talented 10-year-old enrolled at the Open University, a UK-based distance learning college, in January and is already top of the class, having recently scored 100% in a recent exam. "It's so interesting. It has the type of maths I love. It's real maths -- theories, complex numbers, all that type of stuff," she giggles. "It was super easy. My mum taught me in a nice way." She adds: "I want to (finish the course) in two years. Then I'm going to do my PhD in financial maths when I'm 13. I want to have my own bank by the time I'm 15 because I like numbers and I like people and banking is a great way to help people." And in case people think her parents have pushed her into starting university early, Esther emphatically disagrees. "I actually wanted to start when I was seven. But my mum was like, "you're too young, calm down." After three years of begging, mother Efe finally agreed to explore the idea. A marvelous mathematical mind Esther has always jumped ahead of her peers. She sat her first Math GSCE exam, a British high school qualification, at Ounsdale School in Wolverhampton at just six, where she received a C-grade. A year later, she outdid herself and got the A-grade she wanted. Then last year she scored a B-grade when she sat the Math A-level exam. Esther's mother noticed her daughter's flair for figures shortly after she began homeschooling her at the age of three. Initially, Esther's parents had enrolled her in a private school but after a few short weeks, the pair began noticing changes in the usually-vibrant youngster. Efe says: "One day we were coming back home and she burst out in tears and she said 'I don't ever want to go back to that school -- they don't even let me talk!' "In the UK, you don't have to start school until you are five. Education is not compulsory until that age so I thought OK, we'll be doing little things at home until then. Maybe by the time she's five she will change her mind." Efe started by teaching basic number skills but Esther was miles ahead. By four, her natural aptitude for maths had seen the eager student move on to algebra and quadratic equations. And Esther isn't the only maths prodigy in the family. Her younger brother Isaiah, 6, will soon be sitting his first A-level exam in June. A philanthropic family Not content with breaking barriers to attend college at just 10 years old, Esther is also writing a series of math workbooks for children called "Yummy Yummy Algebra." "It starts at a beginner level -- that's volume one. But then there will be volume two, and volume three, and then volume four. But I've only written the first one. "As long as you can add or subtract, you'll be able to do it. I want to show other children they are special," she says. Meanwhile, Esther's parents are also trying to trail blaze their own educational journey back in Nigeria. The couple have set up a foundation and are in the process of building a nursery and primary school in Nigeria's Delta region (where the family are from). Named "Shakespeare's Academy," they hope to open the school's doors in September. The proposed curriculum will have all the usual subjects such as English, languages, math and science, as well as more unconventional additions including morality and ethics, public speaking, entrepreneurship and etiquette. The couple say they want to emulate the teaching methods that worked for their children rather than focus on one way of learning. "Some children learn very well with kinetics where they learn with their hands -- when they draw they remember things. Some children have extremely creative imaginations. Instead of trying to make children learn one way, you teach them based on their learning style," explains Efe. The educational facility will have a capacity of 2,000 to 2,500 students with up to 30% of students being local children offered scholarships to attend. Efe says: "On one hand, billions of dollars worth of crude oil is pumped out from that region on a monthly basis and yet the poverty rate of the indigenous community is astronomical." While Paul adds: "(The region has) poor quality of nursery and primary education. So by the time the children get secondary education they haven't got a clue. They haven't developed their core skills. "The school is designed to give children an aim so they can study for something, not just for the sake of acquiring certifications. There is an end goal."

Also straight outta Compton  Venus, Serena Williams (Gangsters watched sisters play)
(Gangsters watched sisters play) Raul Montez fondly remembers two polite slender girls holding tennis rackets and their father carrying a bucket of balls past his corner taco stand on Compton Boulevard. Montez says the young visitors would stop for water and sometimes a treat at his sidewalk grill, an overhand smash away from two unassuming public tennis courts where they practiced. "They would pass by, one a little taller than the other and they wore skinny jeans not professional tennis clothes," Montez said. Those two girls were Serena and Venus Williams, the sisters who are tennis sensations. The Williams sisters have gone from two courts ringed by a cyclone fence and sometimes protective gangbangers to the global cathedrals of tennis, followed by adoring fans. In his own journey over the years, Montez went from an outdoor charcoal grill to opening his own cozy restaurant on the same spot, called Tacos El Rincon, or "The Corner Tacos" in English. When it comes to the Williams sisters' rise to tennis greatness, Montez gets teary-eyed and can't form words without a long pause.

Bobby Keys: Stones devastated by saxophonist's death
The Rolling Stones say they're devastated over the death of Bobby Keys, who played saxophone for them. On the rock'n'roll scene since the age of 15, Keys played with Buddy Holly, John Lennon and Eric Clapton. The 70-year-old was most famous for his work with the Stones on the classic track Brown Sugar and their album Exile On Main Street. The band issued a statement mourning "the loss of their very dear friend and legendary saxophone player". The statement went on: "Bobby made a unique musical contribution to the band since the 1960s. He will be greatly missed." Guitarist Keith Richards said: "I have lost the largest pal in the world and I can't express the sense of sadness I feel although Bobby would tell me to cheer up." Keys featured in Richards' autobiography Life in 2010 and recalled the first time he met the Stones in the mid-1960s. They were on the same bill as Holly and The Crickets in San Antonio, Texas, whom Keys was touring with. He was not impressed that the Stones had recorded a cover of Holly's Not Fade Away. Keys recalled the moment: "I said 'Hey, that was Buddy's song. Who are these pasty-faced, funny-talking, skinny-legged guys to come over here and cash in on Buddy's song?''' Keys played during the band's Glastonbury headline slot in 2013, although in October he was forced to pull out of dates in New Zealand and Australia due to poor health. The cause of his death is unknown.

Richard III's DNA throws up infidelity surprise
Analysis of DNA from Richard III has thrown up a surprise: evidence of infidelity in his family tree. Scientists who studied genetic material from remains found in a Leicester car park say the finding might have profound historical implications. Depending on where in the family tree it occurred, it could cast doubt on the Tudor claim to the English throne or, indeed, on Richard's. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications. But the scientists would not be drawn on what meaning it might have - if any - for the current Royal Family, as it was still unknown when the break, or breaks, in the lineage occurred. In 2012, scientists extracted genetic material from the remains discovered on the former site of Greyfriars Abbey, where Richard was interred after his death in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. 'Overwhelming evidence' Their analysis shows that DNA passed down on the maternal side matches that of living relatives, but genetic information passed down on the male side does not. However, given the wealth of other details linking the body to Richard III, the scientists conclude that infidelity is the most likely explanation. "If you put all the data together, the evidence is overwhelming that these are the remains of Richard III," said Dr Turi King from Leicester University, who led the study. Speaking at a news briefing at the Wellcome Trust in London, she said that the lack of a match on the male side was not unexpected, because her previous research had shown there was a 1-2% rate of "false paternity" per generation. The instance of female infidelity, or cuckolding, could have occurred anywhere in the numerous generations that separate Richard III from the 5th Duke of Beaufort (1744-1803), whose living descendants provided samples of male-line DNA to be compared against that of the Plantagenet king. "We may have solved one historical puzzle, but in so doing, we opened up a whole new one," Prof Kevin Schurer, who was the genealogy specialist on the paper, told BBC News. Investigation of the male genealogy focused on the Y chromosome, a package of DNA that is passed down from father to son, much like a surname. Most living male heirs of the 5th Duke of Beaufort were found to carry a relatively common Y chromosome type, which is different from the rare lineage found in the car park remains. Richard III and his royal rival, Henry Tudor (later Henry VII), were both descendants of King Edward III. The infidelity could, in theory, have occurred either on the branch leading back from Henry to Edward or on the branch leading from Richard to Edward. Henry's ancestor John of Gaunt was plagued by rumours of illegitimacy throughout his life, apparently prompted by the absence of Edward III at his birth. He was reportedly enraged by gossip suggesting he was the son of a Flemish butcher. "Hypothetically speaking, if John of Gaunt wasn't Edward III's son, it would have meant that (his son) Henry IV had no legitimate claim to the throne, nor Henry V, nor Henry VI," said Dr Schurer.

North Korean defector: Kim Jong Un's days are numbered
He's a fairly young man, wearing an ill-fitting suit. His thin neck is pronounced, giving way to an equally thin face and frame. We're meeting over a meal of sushi, something he specifically requested because it's rare for those trapped in North Korea. For his safety, I'll limit descriptions of this defector. We've agreed that I can say he worked among the elites in Pyongyang. He is by far, the most recent defector I've ever interviewed; he's only been in the free world for a year.
