A Utah man flew a small plane into his own house early Monday just hours after he had been arrested for assaulting his wife in a nearby canyon where the couple had gone to talk over their problems, authorities said. The pilot, Duane Youd, died. His wife and a child who were in the home survived despite the front part the two-story house being engulfed in flames, Payson police Sgt. Noemi Sandoval said. The crash occurred around 2:30 a.m. in Payson, a city located about 20,000 60 miles (95 kilometers) south of Salt Lake City. Investigators believe the twin-engine Cessna 525 belonged to Youd's employer and that he intentionally flew into his own house. Sandoval said he was an experienced pilot. It wasn't immediately clear who employed Youd or whether he was authorized to take the plane. It's unknown if the child in the house is related to Youd, Sandoval said. Youd, 47, was arrested about 7:30 p.m. Sunday after witnesses called police to report that he was assaulting his wife, Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. The couple had been drinking and had gone to American Fork Canyon to talk about problems they were having, authorities said. Youd was booked on suspicion of domestic violence and posted bail, Cannon said. Around midnight, he requested an officer escort him to his home so he could get his truck and some belongings. That occurred without incident, Sandoval said. Within hours, Youd was taking off in the plane from the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport about 15 miles, or 25 kilometers, north of his house. He flew directly to his neighborhood and smashed into his house, Sandoval said. Photos of the wreckage showed the white plane charred and in pieces in the front yard nearby an overturned and crushed car. Most of the upscale house was still intact, but heavily burned in the front. Youd and his wife bought the 2,700 square-foot house valued at nearly $400,000, in 2016 in a quiet subdivision of new homes near the foothills, county property records show. The plane barely missed power lines and other homes, Sandoval said. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating. Online court records show that Youd agreed last month to attend marriage and family counseling sessions for six months as part of a plea agreement following an April 8 domestic violence incident in which he was charged with disorderly conduct. It is the second bizarre airplane incident in recent days. On Friday an employee stole a turboprop plane from Sea-Tac International Airport in Seattle and flew it for more than an hour before dying in a crash on an island southwest of Tacoma.

While his production of A Woman of No Importance benefited from a wonderfully warm performance by Eve Best and Kathy Burke s frothy take on Lady Windermere s Fan felt like one long French and Saunders skit, Jonathan Church s An Ideal Husband feels like it s going through the motions.It s capably played for the most part but has barely any perceptible pulse. A shame, as it 's one of Wilde s tautest plays. Government minister Sir Robert Chiltern (Nathaniel Parker) has built a career and a fortune on secrets he sold and shares purchased when he was starting out. He s being blackmailed by the scheming Mrs Cheveley (Frances Barber), who has come into possession of a letter that could ruin him.
Although the fact that snow monkeys bathe more often during winter suggests that they use the hot spring to stay warm, to date no physiological data had been collected to support this idea. Takeshita and her colleagues studied twelve adult females during the spring birth season, from April to June, and winter mating season, from October to December. They determined how much time the monkeys spent in the hot springs, and which monkeys bathed the most. The researchers also collected faecal samples during times of extreme cold and analysed the concentration of faecal glucocorticoid (fGC) metabolite present. This was done because thermoregulatory stress and the management of a body temperature is known to influence concentrations of glucocorticoids, which belong to the family of steroid hormones.The results confirmed that female snow monkeys use the hot spring more often in winter than in spring, and especially during colder weeks. Dominant females benefited from their status and spent longer time bathing, but they were also involved in more aggressive conflicts, resulting in higher energy expenditure than subordinate females. But taking a spa reduced stress hormone levels in those females. So high social status in this group of snow monkeys has a trade off between the costs of high rank position and the benefits from a hot spring, which is advantageous for conserving energy by reducing loss of body heat, and lowering stress levels.

Sony is the global leader in the production of image sensors, camera chips which convert light into digital pictures and videos. Despite a cooling in the smartphone industry, it has benefited from a trend to include multiple image sensors in each phone a technique used to create better looking pictures and to power simple augmented reality functions. In October, Sony raised its profit forecast for the current fiscal year in part because of sensor demand, and shares have rallied more than 60 percent over the last year.Weak demand for the new iPhone X will hurt Sony, which gets half of its image sensor revenue from Apple, Park wrote. He also said the trend for adopting dual cameras is not as strong as first believed, including among Chinese phone makers, which will further hit Sony s sales. Given high market expectation, in our view any shortfall in the Semiconductor operation will put pressure on the share price, Park wrote. Sony declined to comment on JPMorgan s report.

According to Billboard, the album probably "benefited from last minute Christmas shopping, as the chart s tracking week included the final three days before the Christmas holiday on Dec. 25." So, any Swifties out there who couldn't think of a last minute gift, and just went for giving out a bunch of Reputation albums for the holidays, Swift has you to thank for her number one spot. The peak position truly does show us that 2018 will be the year that Reputation era Taylor has come to slay. If any of you were able to snag tickets to her upcoming arena tour, you know that this year already has a reputation for being exciting. So, the real question is, are you "...Ready For It?"If the news couldn't get any better, Swift now has her best friend, Ed Sheeran, just below her at number two. Sheeran's album, Divide, had to rise two spots to get to that position. His song, "Perfect," probably helped the album reach that spot as it is now the number one song on the Billboard Top 100. It probably doesn't hurt that Sheeran released a duet version of the song from his album feature Beyonc . Having Queen Bey on any track will help bring it to the top.
