At the end of the Cold War the German Army fielded 12 divisions with 38 brigades: six Panzer (armoured), four Panzergrenadier (mechanized), one Fallschirmjäger (airborne), and one Gebirgsjäger (alpine) division. Nine divisions were grouped into three corps: I German Corps as part of NATO's Northern Army Group , II German Corps and III German Corps as part of Central Army Group . The remaining three divisions were part of Allied Forces Baltic Approaches ( 6th Panzergrenadier Division ) and NORTHAG's I Netherlands Corps ( 3rd Panzer Division ), while 1st Fallschirmjäger Division was assigned in peacetime to II German Corps and doubled as general staff for the ACE Mobile Force (Land) .

The IBM logo was designed in 1972 by Paul Rand to designate “speed and dynamism”. If you’re old enough to remember, the output of IBM’s products at that point were large sheets of computer paper with alternating white and light green stripes to assist the reader on following a line of data across the long page. I don’t think it’s a coincidence: IBM’s data printers were extraordinarily fast, and there was a sense of excitement watching the long rolls of striped paper streaming out of the printer with “your data” on it!

Since the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished on 8 March with 239 people on board, the story has sparked a host of myths and conspiracy theories. While some of these theories as to how the flight could have just disappeared have not been discounted by authorities, others have tended towards the unusual, bizarre and downright ridiculous. One Malaysian politician claimed the Bermuda Triangle must have moved to Vietnam. A 'citizen reporter' said radar picked up a UFO. Another said there was a complicated link to former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. None are likely to be true.
