Fastfood chain KFC closed hundreds of its stores in Britain on Feb. 19, due to a shortage of chicken.
 
The problem arose over the weekend after KFC switched its delivery contract to DHL.

The switch forced the majority of KFC’s 900 stores to shut down.
 
DHL blamed the delivery delays on "operational issues."
 
Customers have mixed reactions to the closure of the KFC stores. 
 
"My reaction is angry, sad, and disappointed. (And hungry?) Very Hungry."
 
"It's a big chain so it does seem unbelievable really. All the chicken, there are farmers, surely there's enough chickens? I don't know. (LAUGH)"
 
"It just seems amazing. I thought everything was pretty much automated these days. You know, as they use chicken, more is ordered so obviously something's gone seriously wrong on a computer system or a manual error or somewhere I would've thought for this to happen. I'm sure they're investigating right now."

DHL said they are working with KFC and their partners to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

Frenchman to attempt Nice-Corsica crossing on pedal-powered airship

French balloonist Stephane Rousson tested his pedal-powered airship on Friday (February 16) ahead of an attempt at crossing the Mediterranean Sea from Nice to Calvi in northern Corsica sometime in September or October this year.

Rousson says he is the only person to pilot such a flying machine, which requires a thorough understanding of its sensitive aerodynamics to achieve the 175 kilometre journey from coast to coast.

The slightest change in wind or temperature could end up being catastrophic for the pilot as it would destabilize the whole structure.

The airship looks like a small zeppelin, which Rousson calls a 'zeppy', and is equipped with a bicycle-like structure, two propellers and a twenty metre long, helium filled balloon.

In September 2008, Rousson tried to cross the English Channel but only managed to travel 35 kilometres after eight hours of pedalling, according to a timeline on his website.

Ten years later, Rousson said he is prepared to try another journey, though his success may depend more on mother nature than his own determination.
