In this image taken from video released by Atlantic Productions, part of the wreckage of the RMS Titanic that lays about 3,800 metres below the surface of North Atlantic Ocean around 370 miles (596km) south of Newfoundland in Canada, during a recent visit, the first for over 14-years to record the wreck.  Scientists have warned that the wreckage of the Titanic, which sank in 1912 killing more 1,500 people, is deteriorating rapidly, noting salt corrosion, metal-eating bacteria and deep current action all having profound impact. The Atlantic Productions crew used the expedition to assess the wreck's current condition and make visuals of the wreck using augmented reality and virtual reality technology.

Antonio Basbo kisses the cross with the name of his common-law wife Margie Reckard who died in the shooting at a makeshift memorial after the shooting that left 22 people dead at the Cielo Vista Mall WalMart in El Paso, Texas, on August 5, 2019. - US President Donald Trump on Monday urged Republicans and Democrats to agree on tighter gun control and suggested legislation could be linked to immigration reform after two shootings left 30 people dead and sparked accusations that his rhetoric was part of the problem. "Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks, perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform," Trump tweeted as he prepared to address the nation on two weekend shootings in Texas and Ohio. "We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!" Trump wrote.
