Passengers Aboard a Charter Flight Capture Spectacular Images of the Southern Lights

(WELLINGTON) — They took an eight-hour flight just to look out the airplane’s window, but it was an extraordinary view.
A charter plane that left Dunedin, New Zealand, late Thursday flew close to the Antarctic Circle to give the eager passengers an up-close look at the Aurora Australis, or Southern Lights.
Otago Museum Director Ian Griffin came up with the idea. An astronomer, Griffin said he was inspired after seeing the Southern Lights while flying as a guest on a NASA observatory plane.
He says the 134 seats on the chartered Boeing 767 sold out within five days and one man traveled from Spain for the trip. He says he could have filled the plane several times over, although they were only selling window seats and seats immediately adjacent, leaving the middle of the aircraft empty.

Credit Suisse Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam’s pay for his first full year in the job swelled to 11.9 million Swiss francs ($12 million), the 2016 annual report of Switzerland’s second-biggest bank showed on Friday.
This compared with the 4.57 million francs he earned in 2015 after joining the bank on June 22.
The report also showed Credit Suisse‘s


bonus pool rose 6% to 3.09 billion francs. That followed a second straight year in the red for the bank amid a major restructuring and steep penalties for the sale of toxic mortgage debt in the run-up to the financial crisis.
“Overall, the board considered Mr Thiam’s strong leadership, consistent execution of the group’s communicated strategy, effective delivery of cost efficiencies, principled and ethical conduct, and his role in driving the group towards a stronger capital position in determining that Mr Thiam had met his performance targets set for the year,” the report said.

The National Hockey League is drafting big plans to expand hockey’s popularity in China .
League officials are putting the finishing touches on a pair of exhibition games between the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings for this September, just as local Chinese officials and businessmen discuss investing in an NHL franchise in hopes of leveraging a team’s branding back in China, the Globe and Mail reports .

Spending on all Chinese sports, both recreational and professional, adds up to 0.6% of China’s GDP, compared to the U.S. rate of 2.6%, according to brand consultancy Millward Brown C.. movies games food justin bieber alex jones Justin Bieber Black Lightning
