RUSSIA has launched a supersonic cruise missile in the Black Sea as Vladimir Putin sends a chilling message to President Biden. It comes as US ships entered the Black Sea earlier this week. The missile was launched in a live-fire exercise coinciding with the first visit by a US Legend-class national security cutter in 13 years. The Vulkan firing comes shortly before the arrival of two Royal Navy warships amid deep tension in Ukraine over fears of a Russian invasion. The Black Sea fleet said the Russian cruiser Moskva “fired the Vulkan missile from the vessel's main Basalt missile system for the first time in modern history”. A surface target was hit at a distance of 19 miles, said naval sources. A large area of sea was closed by 20 Russian naval vessels for the firing, blocking access for foreign ships, an act condemned in advance by the US.

Russia's Navy has test-fired a supersonic anti-ship cruise missile in the Black Sea in a show of force ahead of NATO military exercises in the region. With tensions still simmering following Russia's build-up of troops on its border with Ukraine, the Russian Defense Ministry tweeted on Friday footage of the Moskva guided missile cruiser from its Black Sea Fleet launching the Vulkan missile. The P-1000 Vulkan missile, an improved version of the Soviet-era P-500 Bazalt missile with greater range, was fired via the Moskva warship's Bazalt main missile system, the Defense Ministry said. It landed around 19 miles away, Naval Post reported. The footage the Defense Ministry tweeted shows the launch from a number of angles and cuts to the crew of the vessel on the bridge. In coverage on the military channel Zvezda, wreckage of a simulated enemy ship is shown and its correspondent said: "These missiles are the reason why our cruiser is called 'aircraft carrier-killer,'" … [Read more...] about Russia Fires Supersonic Anti-Ship Cruise Missile in ‘Signal to NATO’
We all know that you get what you pay for. But at nearly $400, the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is quite the splurge. Does this hair care tool make for a worthy investment? Dyson recently sent over a Supersonic hair dryer for review. By offering four heat settings and three speed settings along with a bladeless design, the Dyson hair dryer can provide performance and technology that very few blow dryers can deliver. Before I share my overall impression, let's look at some of the unique features this product offers. My Experience With the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer At first glance, the Dyson Supersonic is beautiful. Dyson is known for its sleek, ergonomic product design, and this hair dryer is no different. It's not just about looks, either. The unique design is lightweight and more compact. This is thanks to the small, bladeless digital motor having been moved to the handle of the dryer—meaning no more sore arms after a hair-drying session. You'd think that surely the airflow … [Read more...] about Dyson’s Supersonic Hair Dryer Review: Is It Worth the Price?
