What Will Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Baby Be Called

    Kate Middleton and Prince William will soon welcome their third child, but the couple still has not revealed that sex of their baby. Even though no one knows if the couple will be having a boy or a girl, the Independent recently came up with name predictions for their little one. Since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stuck with regal and classic names for their first two kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, it’s possible that they will do the same for their youngest child. Middleton and Prince William may be welcoming another girl in April, just before the third birthday of Princess Charlotte. If the couple will have another female addition to their family, they could choose to name her Princess Alice, taken after the name of Prince Philip’s mom. The cou...

Britain’s ultimate part time job advertised

    Fancy applying for a part time role which is being billed as ‘Britain’s ultimate part-time job’? Well next year one lucky job hunter could get paid £10,000 to go on a jolly around the UK and Europe. The role of chief adventure officer is being advertised by National Rail, which has described it as Britain’s ultimate part-time job.

On top of all that the adventure officer will also get to go inter-railing around Europe in the summer! But there is a bit of a catch. Whoever gets the j...

South Korea seizes second ship carrying oil to North Korea

    South Korea has seized a second vessel suspected of carrying oil to the impoverished North Korean regime and most of its crew members are thought to be nationals of China and Myanmar. The Panama-flagged vessel was reported to be transferring oil to a North Korean ship at sea in violation of UN regulations – just like the first vessel which was reportedly carrying out a similar transfer. The first one, a Hong Kong-registered vessel, had supplied as much as 600 tonnes of refined petroleum to a North Korean vessel in the East China Sea waters and was seized after that. In the latest development, the 5,100-tonne KOTI has been confiscated by South Korean authorities and kept in the western port of Pyeongtaek-Dangjin in Gyeonggi Province. Seoul's foreign ministry is yet ...
