Chinese officials have told state media the vessel is in danger of exploding and sinking.

Rescuers attempting to reach the site were being beaten back by toxic clouds, the transportation ministry has said.

The crew, 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, remain missing despite international rescue efforts.                                                                      Continue reading

Arsene Wenger to rotate Arsenal squad at Nottingham Forest in FA Cup gamble amid hectic fixture list

Arsene Wenger has admitted he will have to gamble on the FA Cup because of Arsenal’s figure pile-up.

Wenger says he plans to “rotate” his line-up at Nottingham Forest on Sunday but is expected to field a stronger team for the Carabao Cup semi final at Chelsea next Wednesday.

The FA Cup has been Wenger’s salvation during his Arsenal reign as he won it for a record seventh time in May and that helped him stay for another two year contract.

Wenger will have to hedge his bets at Forest and plans to use David Ospina in goal, hinted Ainsley Maitland-Niles might play in midfield and is likely to pick a mix-and-match XI similar to what he has done in the Europa League.                               Continue reading

You can start exploring this issue by learning more about dysfunction in families and the effects of growing up in the turmoil of a family that doesn’t work.

What Is a Dysfunctional Family?

There’s a lot more to protecting your home than turning on a security alarm each night.

Because how you see your home may not be the same way a potential burglar sees your home, the consumer finance website Credit Donkey has outlined a number of ways that your home may be making you an easy target for burglary.

According to Credit Donkey some houses are seen as better targets than others and homeowners can likely change that by just taking some extra precautions.

Some of the reasons that Credit Donkey gives for burglary activity are things that most of us don’t even think about or can really control, like living on a corner or near an alley way. Most of us do work during the day, which we wouldn’t want to exactly change.

Heck, some or most of these things might apply to a great deal of you, like the few weirdos who don’t own dogs.                                                                       Continue reading
