A new 200 million pound polar research ship is to be named after veteran BBC naturalist David Attenborough but the government promised on Friday that "Boaty McBoatface", the name which topped a public poll, would not be ignored. The naming of the Royal Research Ship (RRS) attracted huge interest after the Natural Environment Research Council encouraged Britons to come up with suggestions, leading to a stream of light-hearted ideas such as RRS Usain Boat, RRS I Like Big Boats&I Cannot Lie and RRS Watch Out For The Iceberg. Backed by a social media campaign, Boaty McBoatface easily topped an online poll with more than 124,000 votes although even the instigator of the Boaty name later apologised for his suggestion.
By Steve Holland CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Reuters) - Donald Trump is testing out themes to use against Democrat Hillary Clinton as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee tries to persuade disgruntled party loyalists to get behind his campaign. At a rally in West Virginia on Thursday night, the billionaire businessman criticized Clinton for the vast sums of money that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, accepted for the Clinton Foundation, which he called a "scam." The Clintons have dismissed criticisms of the charitable organization as politically motivated. Trump also linked her with some of her husband's decisions when he was president in the 1990s, like the NAFTA trade deal that opened up trade among the United States, Mexico and Canada.
