Hawaii lava flow ramps up as new magma mixes with old
Lava oozing out of cracks for two weeks in rural Hawaii neighborhoods took on new characteristics as fresher magma mixed with decades-old magma, sending a flow toward the ocean Saturday. The change is attributed to new magma mixing with 1955-era magma in the ground, creating hotter and more fluid flows, scientists said. "There's much more stuff coming out of the ground and it's going to produce flows that move further away," said Wendy Stovall, a U.S. Geological Survey volcanologist.

Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Harry and Meghan's new Royal titles explained
When Meghan Markle marries her fiancee Prince Harry on Saturday 19 May at St George's Chapel, Windsor, like all brides she will be joining a new family. But this is not any family. Just like her sister-in-law-to-be Kate Middleton, the former American actress will be making the transition from "commoner" to "royal" complete with a new title. Here's everything you need to know about the British peerage and their new titles - the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as confirmed this morning. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Ms Markle becomes the first Duchess of Sussex as she marries Prince Harry.  By tradition, male members of the Royal family receive a title from the monarch on their wedding day, and the vacant title Duke of Sussex is regarded as the most likely choice for the Prince. The only previous Duke of Sussex was married twice, but neither of his marriages was approved by his father, George III, meaning they were considered unlawful. It means that Ms Markle is the first woman entitled to use the title HRH The Duchess of Sussex. Ms Markle's full name is Rachel Meghan Markle, but she was named as Meghan in Buckingham Palace's announcement of the engagement, meaning she is unlikely to revert to Rachel when she is married.

The Hollywood kiss: Meghan Markle asks Prince Harry if they should embrace - and groom answers 'yeah'
Prince Harry and his American bride shared a "Hollywood kiss" on the stone steps of St George's Chapel, just moments after exchanging vows. The newlyweds emerged into the sunshine, and shared an embrace to the delight of the waiting crowd. Meghan Markle asked her new husband: "Do we kiss?" to which he replied with a discreet "Yeah", according to lip reader Tina Lannin. Judi James, a body language expert, said: "The timing of the kiss was perfect and it looked like Meghan's idea to do it on the steps, as she was the one who murmured to him. "It almost seemed like her theatrical experience may have influenced the decision to do it early, as the more time you wait the more tension and pressure builds up. Whereas she signalled to do it early to keep things calm." The kiss outside St George's Chapel Credit: Danny Lawson/PA She added: "It was a really smart move from her. It showed the poise she had carried throughout the ceremony and that she was able to lead the day. "It was a very Hollywood kiss. They just slightly leaned their heads to a right angle and Harry went for the lower lip which is popular on screen technique as it minimises the amount of damage done to the make-up. It was a very clever way to ensure there were no problems and that it all went smoothly.&

Miguel Diaz-Canel, the Cuban president, visited the scene immediately and said: "There is a high number of people who appear to have died. "Things have been organised, the fire has been put out, and the remains are being identified." Granma reported there was a baby aged under two on board, plus four children.
