The Netherlands – Dutch Airline KLM says beginning in September 200-flights out of Amsterdam will be flown using Biofuel made from cooking oil. Officials say aircraft engines won't have to be changed to use the new fuel. This idea after the EU told airlines to cut their emissions by three percent by next year.

Chile – A volcano continues to erupt and the huge cloud of ash it’s producing is messing up international air traffic. Planes are grounded in two continents because of it.

United Kingdom – An astonishing find was made after a five dollar purchase on eBay of a previously unknown Charlie Chaplin silent film made in 1916. “After doing a bit of research on my own I found out that there was no record of this film called “Zepped” it didn't appear to exist anywhere." Expert’s agree and expect the guy to fetch six figures when he puts it back up for sale next Wednesday.
