Sean Connery's gun in James Bond debut film ''Dr. No'' headlines auction

A Walther PP handgun used by Sean Connery as James Bond, 007, in the very first Bond film, Dr. No (EON Productions, 1962). Its estimate is $150,000 to $200,000. Connery uses this hero weapon throughout the film and helped to establish and define the character that has been featured in books, films and other media for the past nearly six decades. As the cinematic debut of the character of James Bond, the filmmakers and star had to capture the imagination of the public worldwide to create a film series dynamic enough to endure and persevere over time. James Bond has become one of only a handful of genre film franchises that has been a staple of popular culture generation after generation. The silhouette of the Walther PP and PPK has served as the key iconic image for the character of James Bond since the film franchise debuted with Dr. No, and this deactivated handgun was the first of all that followed. One of two employed in the film, this prop was identified by the original film armorer, BAPTY in the UK, who had it until the official BAPTY Archive auction in 2006. It has since been archived in the collection of that buyer for the past 14 years. The weapon is referred to in the film as a Walther PPK by M (Bernard Lee), but in actuality the production used this Walther PP .380 ACP. The weapon includes a Certificate of DeActivation and a letter of provenance from BAPTY.

Civil servant, 40, who cut her weekly grocery bill from £50 to £10 by buying reduced yellow sticker items claims she's saved £19,000 nine years

***EXCLUSIVE*** LONDON, UK: This woman has saved more than twenty-thousand-pounds in nine years by eating reduced sticker foods - and she hasn’t spent a penny in two months. Civil servant Laura Gaga (40) from London, UK, has been scouring supermarkets for bargains for the past nine years after a colleague introduced her to reduced sticker groceries in 2011. As a student, Laura frittered money away on clothes and socialising, regularly being overdrawn and taking out loans to repay her credit card bills. She became more responsible in adulthood but was a fussy eater and would regularly spend £50 a week at the supermarket on plain meals like spaghetti Bolognese and shepherd’s pie. But once she discovered how to sniff out a bargain buy, shopping became a „huge high” and Laura was „giddy” with her success, experimenting more with vegetables and spices. Over the course of nine years, Laura estimates she has saved around £20,000 by drastically cutting back on her weekly shop, going from £50 a week to just £10. If she doesn’t know a shop’s schedule for reducing food, she keeps track of staff with the yellow sticker guns, keeps an eye on customers loitering in the aisle and asks staff members to ensure she doesn’t miss out on a bargain. Laura finds it easy to stay healthy with budget options and is more mindful of her nutrients after going vegan in January 2018. She is quick to snap up staples like pulses, legumes and nuts when they are reduced. One supermarket reduced haul of fruit, yoghurt, houmous, sausages, cakes, Pukka pies and more should have cost more than £50, but Laura paid just £13.29. She was down to spending just £10 per week on groceries but hasn’t spent a penny since September 2020 after rediscovering the Olio app which helps connect people to neighbours and shops so unwanted food doesn’t go to waste.

Woman, 24, who lost a whopping 140LBS in just eight months during the pandemic says her incredible weight loss helped her quick recovery after she caught COVID-19

***EXCLUSIVE*** A woman who spent COVID losing a whopping 140lbs [10st] in just eight months is convinced that her stunning weight loss helped her recover when she caught the virus. Angelina Toppi, 24, had gone from a massive 320lbs [22st 12lbs] to 180lbs [12st12lbs] when she tested positive with coronavirus in October. She said: "If I was as big as I had been, I think my symptoms and the length of them would have been far worse." Luckily Angelina, from Harper County, Maryland, did not have to go to hospital and recovered at home. She said: "My symptoms weren't that severe and I think it was because I am healthy and not obese anymore. "I lost my sense of smell, I had headaches and I was really tired but it only lasted three or four days. "I think if I was as heavy as I had been before, I would have had issues with my breathing." Angelina, who works in accounting at a car dealership, started losing weight in February, just three weeks before the US went into lockdown, after the breakdown of a relationship. 

First passengers travel safely on Virgin Hyperloop

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Transportation history was made today in the Nevada desert, where Virgin Hyperloop tested human travel in a hyperloop pod for the first time. „For the past few years, the Virgin Hyperloop team has been working on turning its ground breaking technology into reality” said Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group”With today’s successful test, we have shown that this spirit of innovation will in fact change the way people everywhere live, work, and travel in the years to come.” Josh Giegel, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, and Sara Luchian, Director of Passenger Experience, were the first people in the world to ride on this new form of transportation.

Family of six left homeless after neighbour ‘knocked down 20ft wall sparking landslide’

***EXCLUSIVE*** A family of six were left homeless during lockdown after a nightmare neighbour knocked down a 20ft retaining - undermining their home which was then condemned by the council. Reba (corr) Chapman-Guest, 47, lives with her husband, 54-year-old Fergus, and her four children in Redruth, Cornwall, in a quaint bungalow with views overlooking St Ives. But during lockdown they were all forced to move out of the family home as a building project undertaken by their neighbour, Jason Gartrell, left their home unsafe to live in. He knocked down a retaining wall on June 11 and caused a landslide, and after an inspection Cornwall Council gave Reba's house a Dangerous Structure Notice - meaning they all had to move out. Reba, a pilates instructor and doula, said: "The past few months have been a nightmare, I haven't even paused to consider it because it has been so full on. "We ended up in temporary accommodation and lived in two different places, Carnon Downs and Falmouth, which we had to pay for out of our own pocked. "It all started because our neighbour bought some land next to our property and decided to develop it, but he only got permission in the first place because he lied to the council about his plans. "When work began he undermined the wall next to our new extension and caused a landslide, half of our garden just fell away - I was watching as the wall collapsed." Reba has lived in the property on Sea View Terrace for the past seven years and her husband, Fergus, has lived there for three years before that.

Hanging by a thread

'HANGING BY A THREAD' from ZUMA Press award winning photographer Anas Alkharboutli of DPA who won the 27th Prix Bayeux Calvados-Normandy War Correspondents Award 2020 for his work in Syria: Since the Syrian Civil War erupted in March 2011, the conflict has brought unprecedented devastation and displacement. Renewed violence has undermined an already shaky cease-fire that aimed to quell military operations in the rebel-held enclave. Relations between Russia and Turkey, who negotiated the cease-fire, show signs of strain. Russia is a main supporter of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government, while Turkey has long supported the rebels. The airstrike on a rebel training camp near the border with Turkey killed more than 50 Turkish-backed fighters, in one of the heaviest blows to the opposition's strongest groups. The temporary peace deal now hangs by a thread.

Coffee making in Malaysia

Tan Loon Chuan, 63, is the third generation heir to the coffee-making family business. For years, he has been sticking to the traditional way by using charcoal to fuel the roasting process of coffee beans, for he believes it gives the coffee a much unique aroma and flavour which is lacking in beans processed in modern methods. Getting nice and silky coffee powder requires the bean to go through multiple stages. The process of roasting, frying and mixing coffee beans with sugar and butter, requires Tan to pay full attention to details, with his expertise in time and temperature control. Although the homestyle coffee roasting production could not compete with mass factory production, online marketing has given this traditional brand and its star product, charcoal roasted "Kopi O" powder new vitality. And for Tan Loon Chuan, despite the smoky working environment, he still works hard to ensure that the special taste of charcoal roasted "Kopi O" never fades over time.
