U.S. Seizes 16 Tons of Cocaine Worth $1 Billion at Philadelphia Port
U.S. authorities seized more than $1 billion worth of cocaine Tuesday from a ship at a Philadelphia port, calling it one of the largest drug busts in American history. The U.S. attorney’s office in Philadelphia announced the massive bust on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, saying law enforcement agents seized about 16.5 tons (15 metric tons) of cocaine from a large ship at the Packer Marine Terminal. Members of the crew were arrested and face federal charges. The drug seizure is the latest in a series of large cocaine busts along the East Coast. In a March bust in Philadelphia, drug dogs sniffed out 1,185 pounds (538 kilograms) of cocaine worth about $38 million — at that time the city’s largest seizure of the drug in more than two decades. In February, customs agents seized 3,200 pounds (1,451 kilograms) at the Port of New York and New Jersey with a street value estimated at $77 million. That was the largest cocaine bust at the ports since 1994. Television footage of the seized ship in Philadelphia showed its name as MSC Gayane. Online ship trackers said it sails under the flag of Liberia and arrived in Philadelphia after 5 a.m. Monday.

Inside Italy's $1 Billion Marble Mountains
A slab of Carrara marble can cost up to $400 per square meter. The luxury stone comes the Apuan Alps, a mountain range in northern Tuscany that stretches for 58 km and reaches 2,000 meters high. The Carrara quarries have produced more marble than any other place on Earth. The market as a whole is worth over €1 billion ($1.1 billion) and produces 4 million tons of marble every year, with 13,000 people involved.

What If Everybody Lived In the Same Building? (Part 2)
Try out your 30-day free trial and free audiobook with Audible by clicking here: http://www.audible.com/reallifelore This video is a sequel to one of my previous videos. I try my best to explore what a building that could "comfortably" house the entire human race would look like within this. I didn't have enough time to cover some of the math in the video because I was worried it would get too boring, so for anybody who's interested I've written it all out below... 80% of the US freshwater source is currently consumed by agriculture. Aeroponics reduces the amount of water needed by 98%, and eliminates the need to use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It seems that the most efficient crops that can be produced are sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. Sweet potatoes grow about 13.5 tons per hectare, or 1,350 tons per square kilometer. This can be translated to 54,000 calories per hectare per day which is equal to 5.4 million calories per day per square kilometer. If everybody is given a diet of 1,500 calories per day, then 1 square kilometer of sweet potatoes is enough to feed 3,600 people per day. Sweet potatoes are generally between 12 and 15 inches in height, so giving them a little more space of about 1 meter and stacking 1,000 layers on top of eachother and we could fit 1,000 square kilometers into 1 cubic kilometer. Using hydorponics, (a method of growing plants without using soil, but instead using nutrient rich water solution, where the plant roots are directly exposed to the solution) and we can increase our raw yields by around 280%. Thus, we could then expect to feed up to 10,080 people per day per square kilometer, but then we could further increase the efficiency with aeroponics (another method of growing plants in which nutrient rich water is vaporized and sprayed directly onto the roots of crops.) Using this method we could further increase efficiency by between 50% to 270% over traditional hydorponic methods. If the far side of this could be realized, we could potentially be feeding 27,216 people per square kilometer per day of space. Now, extended to the cubic kilometer that means that we could actually be feeding 27,216,000 people per day per cubic kilometer building full of sweet potatoes, since we would multiply 27,216 by 1,000 since there would be 1,000 layers. Therefore if we build 275 of these cubic buildings to feed the entire human race a diet of sweet potatoes, or have a farmland about the size of Ecuador for the same purpose, we could in theory feed the entire species. 33.8% of Brazil’s land is considered arable and suitable for farming, which would translate to 2,878,329 square kilometers of potential farming space, more than enough to feed us all several times over “in theory.” Obviously a diet of only sweet potatoes is not entirely healthy, but in an emergency situation or hypothetical situation like this it appears to be the most efficient food for us to consume. If I’m wrong about any of this please feel free to correct to me or leave your own ideas :) Sources: http://www.fao.org/docrep/t0207e/T0207E04.htm http://www.businessinsider.com/10-crops-that-feed-the-world-2011-9?op=1/#cassava-6 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroponics http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/AG.LND.AGRI.ZS http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304423807003846 https://www.researchgate.net/publication/234520423_Comparison_of_vegetative_growth_and_minituber_yield_in_three_potato_variety_in_aeroponics_and_classic_hydroponics_with_three_different_nutrient_solutions http://www.un.org/esa/population/pubsarchive/chart/14.pdf http://www.businessinsider.com/nasa-data-shows-the-world-is-running-out-of-water-2015-6 https://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/zoning/districts-tools.page http://www.techtimes.com/articles/92543/20151008/ever-wondered-how-many-solar-panels-are-needed-to-power-up-the-world-heres-the-answer.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_electricity_consumption https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itaipu_Dam https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_resources_management_in_Brazil http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2012/06/food_security_what_crops_will_feed_the_world_if_we_run_out_of_farmland_.html Music is by Brandon Maahs, check out his website for more great stuff! www.brandonmaahs.com Image Credits: http://stefan-morrell.cgsociety.org/ Please Subscribe: http://bit.ly/2dB7VTO Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RealLifeLore/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RealLifeLore1 Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/RealLifeLore French Subtitles Written by: Emel Önal Subreddit moderated by: Oliver Bourdouxhe Special Thanks to Patrons: Joshua Tavares, Wesley Jackson and Matthew Mikulka Videos explaining things.

We've Found Fossils of Dinosaur Extinction!
About 66 million years ago, more than 2 trillion tons heavy and 15 kilometres wide chixaclub asteroid headed straight towards Earth. With a speed of 20 km per second it entered Earth's atmosphere and crashed into our planet. As a result of this impact, Earth's temperature rapidly increased and most of the species died including all the dinosaurs. According to paleontologists, they have just discovered some fossils formed just after this impact.

fair transport europe
Rail freight in Europe is huge. Nine freight corridors connect the north, south, east and west. A network of more than 320,000 kilometres of track runs across the continent. This corresponds to about 8 times the Earth's circumference. Freight trains carry in excess of 1.5 billion tons per year in Europe and cover over 4 billion train-kilometres. That makes a total of 400 billion ton-kilometres. These masses do not move by themselves. People work day and night so that the goods reach their destinations safely and punctually on a daily basis. But what about their work and employment conditions? Is competition for transport contracts fairly regulated?

Solar Storms: 10 Hottest Facts
Our Sun is located 24-26,000 light years from the center of the Milky Way. It circles the galaxy every 225-250,000 years, at a speed of 220 kilometers per second. The sun is a medium size star, a Yellow Dwarf, G type main sequence. It’s about one million times the size of planet Earth. Core temperature:15,000,000 °C. Surface temperature: 5,500 °C. The sun emits a steady stream of charged particles, the solar wind, at 450 km per second. It increases in strength during active periods, every 11 years or so. Active periods are marked by an increase in sunspots. Sunspots are Earth-sized regions where intense magnetic fields prevent hot gas from reaching the surface, driving temperatures down to around 4,000°C. They often correspond to active regions. Where magnetic activity drives the formation of coronal loops, or prominences. Solar flares. And Solar tsunamis, technically “fast-mode magnetohydrodynamical waves.” In February 2009, the Stereo spacecraft detected one that rose to 100,000 km high, and raced outward at 250 kilometers per second. It was associated with an eruption of gas and magnetic fields called a coronal mass ejection. A CME can blast a billion tons of matter out at 10 to 12 million kilometers per hour. A CME sends a pulse of solar plasma to the limits of the solar system, where it can impact planets or spacecraft. We see its arrival in spectacular aurora. They form when solar particles rain down on Earth’s atmosphere, causing oxygen and nitrogen atoms to glow.

Louisville Mega Cavern Underneath all ten lanes of the Watterson Expressway and parts of the local zoo in Louisville, Kentucky, there’s a 100-acre former limestone mine known as the Louisville Mega Cavern. It’s classified as a building because of its support structures, and is therefore technically the largest building in the state of Kentucky. 7. Salina Turda Amusement Park The Salina Turda amusement park in Romania is located within one of the world’s oldest salt mines, which dates back to the 17th century. Between then and 1932, when the mine officially closed, over three billion tons of salt were mined from this site underneath Turda, Transylvania, which lies 400 feet below the ground’s surface. 6. Subtropolis Business Park In 2014, this $60 million data center was opened in a former underground limestone mine in Kansas City, Missouri. It was developed by Lamar Hunt, the late owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, in collaboration with Hunt Midwest Real Estate Development. 5. Wieliczka Salt Mine and Health Resort The 800-year-old Wieliczka Salt Mine is located in southern Poland in the town of Wieliczka, which is part of the Krakow metropolitan area. The mine was excavated in the 13th century and continuously produced sodium chloride, or table salt, until 2007. That is a really long time! As the result of falling salt prices and mine flooding, commercial salt mining was discontinued in 1996. 4. Lake Ore-Be-Gone Lake Ore-Be-Gone is an artificial freshwater lake in Gilbert, Minnesota that was made by flooding three open-pit ore mines with water. The tranquil lake is known for its crystal-clear water, which looks “almost tropical” on an especially sunny day. 3. White Mountain Publications Bookstore In the Cobalt Mining District of Northern Ontario, you can find White Mountain Publications, an independent bookstore which is also most likely the world’s only bookstore that’s part of an old silver mine. 2. Creekside Mushrooms Ltd. Located in Worthington, PA, Creekside Mushrooms Ltd. was once the world’s largest mushroom facility and the nation’s only underground mushroom operation. The facility was located within an old limestone mine, whose subterranean conditions proved to be ideal for growing white button mushrooms. 1. Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira This Roman Catholic church was built 200 meters (220 yards) below ground in the tunnels of a former salt mine near the Colombian town of Zipaquira, about 49 kilometers (30 miles) north of Bogota. It serves as both a place of pilgrimage and a tourist destination, and is considered one of the most notable achievements of Colombian architecture. I’ve been here and it is pretty amazing!

Engineering Connections Earthquake Proof Bridge | Science Documentary | Reel Truth Science
Richard Hammond reveals how engineers made one of the longest bridges in the world earthquake-proof - . Building a structure almost 3 kilometres long in water 65 metres deep was almost the least of the engineering challenges of bridging the Gulf of Corinth in Greece. The construction would cross one of the most active seismic fault lines in Europe. Defying disaster called for solutions inspired by fragrant Indian incense, the ring-pull in a soda can, a toboggan, a hammock, and some shiny steel chimneys.

NCSA Neutron Stars
Neutron stars are the smallest, densest stars known to exist. A neutron star is about 20 kilometers, or 12 miles, in diameter and is so dense that a teaspoon of neutron star material has a mass of about a billion tons. They are formed when massive stars explode in supernovas. It is believed that neutron star collisions may be the progenitors of gamma ray bursts––the most powerful electromagnetic explosions in the Universe after the Big Bang. On August 17, 2017 the LIGO and Virgo detectors detected the collision of two astrophysical objects that are consistent with neutron stars (GW170817). As these neutron stars spiraled together, they emitted gravitational waves that were detectable for about 100 seconds by the LIGO and Virgo detectors. When they collided, a flash of light in the form of gamma rays was emitted and seen on Earth about two seconds after the gravitational waves. In the days and weeks following the smashup, other forms of light, or electromagnetic radiation — including X-ray, ultraviolet, optical, infrared, and radio waves — were detected. This movie presents the collision of two neutron stars, resulting in a stable neutron star with an accretion disk. This serves as an illustration of the possible outcomes of the gravitational wave transient GW170817.

U.S. launches 100,000-ton aircraft carrier
美 슈퍼 핵 항모 취역..."10만 톤짜리 메시지" The United States has commissioned one of its most advanced aircraft carriers to join its Navy. In a ceremony over the weekend, President Trump said the USS Gerald R. Ford will cause America's enemies to "shake with fear." Ro Aram has the details. Weighing in at one hundred-thousand tons, the 13 billion-dollar warship, named after America's 38th president, can apparently sail for 20 years without needing to refuel. The carrier also has a smaller island that sits further back on the ship to make it easier and quicker to refuel, re-arm and relaunch planes. It also has a nuclear power plant designed to allow cruising speeds of more than 30 knots... or 55 kilometers an hour. Construction started in 2009 and was to be completed by September 2015 at a cost of ten and a half billion dollars. The Navy said the delays and budget overruns was because of the ship's advanced technology, including electromagnetic launch systems for jets and drones that will replace steam catapults. President Trump had earlier urged against this as he blamed electromagnetic systems for being too expensive. But he seemed pleased with the finished product as he hailed the Gerald Ford as the pride of the U.S. Navy and American power. AP 4107468 / 1 "American steel and American hands have constructed a 100,000-ton message to the world: 'America might is second to none…. "Wherever this vessel cuts through the horizon, our allies will rest easy and our enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that America is coming, and America is coming strong." The Gerald Ford is docked at Naval Station Norfolk and will eventually house about four-and-a-half thousand sailors, about six hundred fewer than the previous generation of aircraft carriers. However, it still needs to go through a series of tests before becoming operational in the next few years. Ro Aram, Arirang News.

Cosmic Journeys - Earth in 1000 Years
This SpaceRip video is brought to you by MagellanTV https://magellan.tv/spacerip This edition of COSMIC JOURNEYS explores the still unfolding story of Earth's past and the light it sheds on the science of climate change today. While that story can tell us about the mechanisms that can shape our climate. it's still the unique conditions of our time that will determine sea levels, ice coverage, and temperatures. Ice, in its varied forms, covers as much as 16% of Earth's surface, including 33% of land areas at the height of the northern winter. Glaciers, sea ice, permafrost, ice sheets and snow play an important role in Earth's climate. They reflect energy back to space, shape ocean currents, and spawn weather patterns. But there are signs that Earth's great stores of ice are beginning to melt. To find out where Earth might be headed, scientists are drilling down into the ice, and scouring ancient sea beds, for evidence of past climate change. What are they learning about the fate of our planet... a thousand years into the future and even beyond? 30,000 years ago, Earth began a relentless descent into winter. Glaciers pushed into what were temperate zones. Ice spread beyond polar seas. New layers of ice accumulated on the vast frozen plateau of Greenland. At three kilometers thick, Greenland's ice sheet is a monumental formation built over successive ice ages and millions of years. It's so heavy that it has pushed much of the island down below sea level. And yet, today, scientists have begun to wonder how resilient this ice sheet really is. Average global temperatures have risen about one degree Celsius since the industrial revolution. They could go up another degree by the end of this century. If Greenland's ice sheet were to melt, sea levels would rise by over seven meters. That would destroy or threaten the homes and livelihoods of up to a quarter of the world's population. With so much at stake, scientists are monitoring Earth's frozen zones... with satellites, radar flights, and expeditions to drill deep into ice sheets. And they are reconstructing past climates, looking for clues to where Earth might now be headed... not just centuries, but thousands of years in the future. Periods of melting and freezing, it turns out, are central events in our planet's history. That's been born out by evidence ranging from geological traces of past sea levels... the distribution of fossils... chemical traces that correspond to ocean temperatures, and more. Going back over two billion years, earth has experienced five major glacial or ice ages. The first, called the Huronian, has been linked to the rise of photosynthesis in primitive organisms. They began to take in carbon dioxide, an important greenhouse gas. That decreased the amount of solar energy trapped by the atmosphere, sending Earth into a deep freeze. The second major ice age began 580 million years ago. It was so severe, it's often referred to as "snowball earth." The Andean-Saharan and the Karoo ice ages began 460 and 360 million years ago. Finally, there's the Quaternary... from 2.6 million years ago to the present. Periods of cooling and warming have been spurred by a range of interlocking factors: the movement of continents, patterns of ocean circulation, volcanic events, the evolution of plants and animals. The world as we know it was beginning to take shape in the period from 90 to 50 million years ago. The continents were moving toward their present positions. The Americas separated from Europe and Africa. India headed toward a merger with Asia. The world was getting warmer. Temperatures spiked roughly 55 million years ago, going up about 5 degrees Celsius in just a few thousand years. CO2 levels rose to about 1000 parts per million compared to 280 in pre-industrial times, and 390 today. But the stage was set for a major cool down. The configuration of landmasses had cut the Arctic off from the wider oceans. That allowed a layer of fresh water to settle over it, and a sea plant called Azolla to spread widely. In a year, it can soak up as much as 6 tons of CO2 per acre. Plowing into Asia, the Indian subcontinent caused the mighty Himalayan Mountains to rise up. In a process called weathering, rainfall interacting with exposed rock began to draw more CO2 from the atmosphere... washing it into the sea. Temperatures steadily dropped. By around 33 million years ago, South America had separated from Antarctica. An ice sheet formed. In time, with temperatures and CO2 levels continuing to fall, the door was open for a more subtle climate driver. It was first described by the 19th century Serbian scientist, Milutin Milankovic. He saw that periodic variations in Earth's rotational motion altered the amount of solar radiation striking the poles. In combination, every 100,000 years or so, these variations have sent earth into a period of cool temperatures and spreading ice.

Elite Dangerous - Distant Worlds 2 - Great Annihilator (Great Annihilator Black Hole)
20th century astronomers discovered a source of intense photons at 511 keV, which was known to be the result of positron-electron annihilation. After study determined that the source was equal to annihilation events of 10 billion tons per second of positron-electron pairs, it was dubbed The Great Annihilator. The only possible explanation was a large black hole. Recent surveys found two black holes and a set of T-Tauri stars in orbit. The primary black hole has almost 200 solar masses and an unusually large radius of 550 kilometers. The secondary black hole has 66 solar masses and a radius around 200 kilometers. The system appears to be located in an unusually dense field of dust, obscuring most nearby stars.

Scientists Have Found Something Seriously Weird Beneath Yellowstone
Scientists Have Found Something Seriously Weird Beneath Yellowstone. There's a massive lump of liquidized, carbon-rich rock hiding hundreds of kilometers beneath Yellowstone's supervolcano and the greater Western United States area. It's truly massive - 1.8 million square kilometers in size - and it's bubbling inside the upper region of the mantle, the region of the planet that's a partly-molten churning mass of fiery doom. It's essentially molten carbonates, a type of rock that has a lot of carbon contained within it. This reservoir of carbon is so huge that it's completely changed the way scientists understand the carbon cycle. To put it in comparable terms, back in 2011, the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere - mainly through human activity - was about 10 billion tonnes. This newly found reservoir implies that the upper mantle contains 10,000 times more carbon than this, primarily as trapped carbon dioxide gas. That's roughly 325 times greater than the United States' annual oil consumption. Although this carbon will slowly make its way to the surface via volcanic eruptions, there's absolutely no need to fret. Writing in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, a team from London's Royal Holloway explain how they used an enormous network of seismic sensors to pick up on the carbonate monster beneath our feet. Seismic waves travel at different speeds and at different angles through a variety of material. This means that researchers can use such waves to determine what the innards of the planet are made of, and this newly emplaced, extensive sensor network was used to make this astonishing discovery.

How to Gain 20 LBS of Muscle! (THE RIGHT WAY)
Make your best gains ever - http://athleanx.com/x/my-workouts Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW There are plenty of ways to gain muscle and pack on muscle mass, but many of them are either ill advised or dangerous. In this video, I’m going to show you the nutrition and training principles that Jesse has followed over the last 14 months that have allowed him to pack on 20 pounds of muscle mass without putting on fat. Even if you have been training for awhile and are close to your genetic potential for size, this video is going to help you to add at least a few pounds of muscle if you listen to the key points shared. The first thing we need to do is break the video up into the two major focal points, training and nutrition. They obviously go hand in hand and both are required to see your best gains. On the training side of things however, it starts with the order in which you attack your workouts. Many people will advise you to stick to a few basic lifts and simply aim to get stronger in them. As you increase your strength you will increase your size. While this is certainly true, there is a big problem that often comes along with the infatuation with adding weight to the bar as a measure of your progress and that is that true strength is eventually eclipsed by compensatory strength which leads to structural issues down the road. Think about it. Our bodies are masters of compensation. Give them a chance to figure out a way to take stress off the muscles and divert it to the joints and they will. This happens all the time on the big lifts since there are so many joints involved in performing them. The problem is, the compensations we make are often disguised and hidden really well. You still complete the reps and sets you were aiming to complete and you aren’t aware of the faulty patterning you are ingraining. As you continue to add strength and weight to the bar over the next few months and years, you are only worsening a problem that could have been overcome by instead first focusing on building proper body command and mind muscle control before being conscious of how quickly you were adding weight to the bar. The same can be said for being infatuated with the numbers not just on the sides of the weights you’re using but in the sets and reps you are performing. Far too often people become fixated on performing a certain number of reps that they forget the most important factor in lifting weights and that is the intensity of your effort and the amount of tension you are providing to the muscles you are trying to grow. Beyond this of course is the tendency to overlook the accessory lifts. I recently did an entire video dedicated to this and showed you how important these smaller exercises were to helping improve the performance on the big lifts. Here I show you once again how that can be so impactful on your strength and size when you correct this. On the nutrition side of things the eat big get big mentality simply isn’t true, not at least if you want to maximize lean gains and not have to worry about having to cut unwanted fat. See how quality of food should come before quantity and how nutrition consistency is ultimately the holy grail of keeping the gains coming for a long time to come. For a complete program of nutrition and step by step training that will help you to safely pack on as much size as you can in the shortest time possible, head to http://athleanx.com and get the Max Size program. See how training like an athlete can accelerate the rate at which you build explosive muscle and keep it forever.

The Bridge. Russia’s grand project to link Crimea (RT Documentary)
RTD followed the Crimean Bridge construction project with former boxing world champion and now Russian State Duma Deputy Nikolay Valuev, who tries his hand at being a bridge builder. The film also uncovers the region’s hidden gems with Kerch native, singer Alyona Sviridova, who meets Crimeans for whom the bridge link is vital. With the bridge deck 35 metres above the water, the giant structure stretches 19 kilometres (12 miles). The bridge is expected to carry up to 40,000 vehicles and 94 trains a day, once it becomes fully operational in 2019. Although plans to span the strait with a bridge date back to the 19th century, the link became a practical necessity for the peninsula, which only has a land border with Ukraine, after Crimeans overwhelming voted to rejoin Russia in 2014. Nikolay Valuev begins his journey at the construction camp on the Taman Peninsula, where he joins men and women working on the site. To get the first-hand experience, Nikolay tries various jobs, from welding large metal tubes for future piles, to pouring concrete and operating an elevator which lifts builders onto the arches. The installation of the 6,000-ton arches marked a milestone in the construction of what is said to be the longest bridge in Europe and one of the largest in Russia. The link will significantly cut the time people have to spend on the road, queueing at the busy ferry crossing, often troubled by bad weather. “It took us three days of waiting in line to get on the ferry out of Crimea and a week to get on the ferry back,” says Yulia, who drives a truck from the resort city of Evpatoria to Moscow. Once complete, the bridge will also make it easier for holidaymakers to reach Crimea, a popular tourist destination for Russians. However, it’s not only the Black Sea resorts that are worth visiting. From getting muddy in Lake Chokrak, dubbed the Crimean Dead Sea, to fishing for anchovies, and grocery shopping at Kerch market, Alyona shows some of the off the beaten track Crimean attractions. Alyona meets a Crimean Tatar, named Reshat, who is searching for a bride. As he wants his future wife to be from Crimea, Reshat takes long, arduous journeys via ferry to the peninsula in pursuit of love. “Never mind the wines, it’s the bridge that connects us,” Irina tells her sister. With the Crimean Bridge now open to car traffic, learn more about the building of the much-awaited connection and get an inside look at Crimea’s must-see places.

STRANGEST Geological Occurrences Ever Discovered!
Check out the strangest geological occurrences ever discovered! This top 10 list of weird and unexplained mysterious phenomena has some of the weirdest geological formations discovered to this day! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "STRANGEST Artifacts Ever Discovered!" video here: https://youtu.be/gG0XGt3jFZA Watch our "SECRETS Casinos DON'T Want You To Find Out!" video here: https://youtu.be/hAoABuvzOZM Watch our "RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/MtCnWSqqilg 11. Striped Icebergs As water gets colder, there are numerous interesting occurrences that happen. There are "ice fingers" that can literally grow from the top of a frozen body of water and touch the bottom. There are also things that can be trapped in the ice perfectly preserved. But nothing is as strange...as colored icebergs. Or more specifically, striped icebergs. 10. The Crystal Cave While it's true that many geological wonders and oddities are found above ground, many are found underground. And for two brothers, they made the discovery of a lifetime when they found a cave entirely full of crystals. And I'm not talking tiny little crystals, I mean massive ones. Some of these crystals are estimated to weigh around 55 tons!! 9. The Chocolate Hills Sorry to disappoint you but I’m sad to say these are NOT actually hills made of chocolate. They wouldn’t be around anymore if they were!!! Anyway, in the Philippines, in the Bohol Province, you will find over 1200 mounds of limestone that are known as the "Chocolate Hills". Why? Because in the Summer season the grass on the mounds dry up and they turn a particularly dark brown color, which makes it resemble chocolate kisses. 8. Moeraki Boulders Sometimes the oddest of occurrences have the simplest scientific explanation, but it still boggles the mind! The Moeraki Boulders in New Zealand are large, round boulders with what looks like intricate details carved onto them. Some of them even look like a plate of armor of sorts. 7. Kilauea Volcano Ok, full warning here, volcanoes are DANGEROUS!!! Public Service Announcement over. Seriously though, volcanoes are another great example of a geological wonders and they are very dramatic and strange occurrences. Even though we know why they happen, sometimes they erupt for no reason at all, and that can really catch us all by surprise. However, one strange occurrence that we can count on is Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii. 6. Rainbow Mountains While these may look like regular mountains from afar, as you get closer, you can see that the colors get more and more beautiful. These mountains are a geological wonder of the world and are known for their coloring which looks like someone took a paintbrush and painted a rainbow directly on to the mountains! 5. Eye of The Sahara The desert can be a beautiful and strange place to find rock formations and other geological wonders. The Eye of the Sahara had been hiding in plain sight for years!! It was only recently known to us in the modern era because it was detected from space. When you see it from the sky and look down at the Eye of the Sahara, you'd see it makes a bullseye. How's that for strange? 4. Mount Roraima Mount Roraima is one of the oldest mountain formations on earth, estimated to be around 2 billion years old!! The floating island plateau is a completely real natural wonder, surrounded by three South American countries including Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. 3. Stone Forest This stone forest of Shilin in China covers 300 square kilometers and looks like the landscape from another planet. These stone pillars or karst formations, are bunched together in such a way that it actually forms what looks like a stone forest. There are now trees around these stones to help sell the effect. These formations are over 270 million years old. 2. The Disappearing River This one is as cool as it is strange. In 2016, nature decided to divert a river in Canada, and it left a lot of people in scientific community scratching their heads as to what was going on. An expedition team was going to the Slims River Basin in Yukon Territory in Canada. When they got there, they found the river, the whole river, was gone. 1. Magnetic Lake There is something weird going on in the water at Lake Lonar! Located in Maharashtra, India, this lake actually causes magnetic disturbances. To the extent that it interferes with electrical equipment and makes compasses can go crazy when they are near it. (Kind of like the rumors from the Bermuda Triangle!) Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Difference between Indian and Japan railways
Indian railways: Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is a state-owned national transportation system, and it is responsible for rail transport in India. It is owned and operated by the Government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It is the fourth largest railway network in the worldcomprising 119,630 kilometres (74,330 mi) of total track[4] and 92,081 km (57,216 mi) of running track over a route of 66,687 km (41,437 mi) with 7,216 stations at the end of 2015-16.[2] In 2015-16, IR carried 8.107 billion passengers annually or more than 22 million passengers a day and 1.101 billion tons of freight annually.[2] As of the end of 2015-16, of the total 68,525 km (42,579 mi) route length, 28,327 km (17,602 mi) or 45% were electrified and 28,371 km (17,629 mi) or 37% were double or multiple line routes.[5] The railway network is predominantly a broad gaugenetwork. Small stretches of the network use metre and narrow gauges. All the electrified lines use 25 kV AC electric traction.[2] Japan railways: The Japan Railways Group, more commonly known as JR Group (JRグループ Jeiāru Gurūpu), consists of six for-profit companies that took over most of the assets and operations of the government-owned Japanese National Railways on April 1, 1987. Most of the liability of the JNR was assumed by the JNR Settlement Corporation.The JR Group lies at the heart of Japan's railway network, operating a large proportion of intercity rail service (including the Shinkansen high-speed rail lines) and commuter rail service. Despite JR East, JR Central and JR West now having full private ownership, Japanese people often talk about "private railways" as if none of JR Group (nor third sector former JR lines) is part of them, since they are successors of "national railways" i.e. JNR. Maps almost always denoted JR and private railways differently, as does JR itself.[1]

Support my work on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/melodysheep | Get the soundtrack: https://bit.ly/2HKl9fi | How's it all gonna end? This experience takes us on a journey to the end of time, trillions of years into the future, to discover what the fate of our planet and our universe may ultimately be. We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few. This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science - a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent - and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found. To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective - that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away. Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

Train with funny speed. Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is a state-owned railway company, responsible for rail transport in India. It is owned and operated by the Government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It is fourth largest railway network in the world comprising 119,630 kilometres (74,330 mi) of total track[4] and 92,081 km (57,216 mi) of running track over a route of 66,687 km (41,437 mi) with 7,216 stations at the end of 2015-16.[2] In 2015-16, IR carried 8.107 billion passengers annually or more than 22 million passengers a day and 1.101 billion tons of freight annually.[2] Railways were first introduced to India in 1830s for frieght purposes. First passenger train ran from Bombay to Thane in 1853. In 1951 the systems were nationalised as one unit, the Indian Railways, becoming one of the largest networks in the world. IR operates both long distance and suburban rail systems predominantly on a network of broad gauge. Small stretches of its network use metre and narrow gauges. It also owns locomotive and coach production facilities at several places in India, with assigned codes identifying their gauge, kind of power and type of operation. Indian Railways is the world's eighth biggest employer and had 1.331 million employees at the end of 2015-16.[3] In 2015–2016 Indian Railways had revenues of ₹1.683 trillion (US$26 billion) which consists of ₹1.069 trillion (US$17 billion) freight earnings and ₹442.83 billion (US$6.9 billion) passengers earnings.[2] It had operating ratio of 90.5% in 2015-16.[2] As on the end of 2015-16, IR's rolling stock comprises over 251,256 Freight Wagons, 70,241 Passenger Coaches and 11,122 Locomotives (39 steam, 5,869 diesel and 5214 electric locomotives).[2] Indian Railways run on average 13,313 passenger trains daily in 2015-16. Mail or Express trains, most common type, run at average speed of 50.9 km/hr.[5] The trains have a 5 digit numbering system. As of at the end of 2015-16, of the total 68,525 km (42,579 mi) route length, 28,327 km (17,602 mi) (45%) was electrified and 28,371 km (17,629 mi) (37%) was Double or Multiple line route.[6]

Triton’s Nicanda Hill the largest graphite and vanadium deposit in the world
October 31, 2014 -- Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel speaks to Brad Boyle, Managing Director for Triton Minerals (‘Triton’, ASX: TON) about its October 21 maiden JORC compliant mineral resource announcement that its Nicanda Hill graphite deposit at the Balama North project in Mozambique may well be “the largest graphite-vanadium deposit in the world at nearly 1.5 billion tons” at an average grade of 10.7% graphitic carbon (gc) and 0.27% vanadium pentoxide. Not only is the resource the largest in the world, it is also of the highest quality. The fact that all of this happened within six months after the start of drilling at Nicanda Hill is one of the most remarkable aspects, which suggests that Triton is moving very fast – ahead of schedule. Triton’s market capitalization is also very high and believed to be one of the very highest in the world at over 100 million. Brad says that Triton is moving as fast as possible, and will do so straight through the Christmas holiday period, toward completing a pre-feasibility study, which will be followed shortly thereafter a the full feasibility report. Brad adds: “if all goes well we’re looking at a production start date of maybe 2017.” To those that actually understand graphite and vanadium from a technical standpoint, as Tracy asks, Brad explains that given the 1.5 billion tons of mineral, the resource “must contain at least 156 million tons of pure graphite and nearly four million tons of vanadium pentoxide.” The deposit is spread out across a long and wide area (6 km by 1 km), which spoils the Triton for choice when it comes to choosing the drill zones: there are dozens of potential good ones. One of the areas in consideration is a hydrothermal region known as the Mutola Zone, featuring a high consistency of tonnage and graphite grade at, and near, the surface; it is some 30 meters thick with mineralization that is clearly identifiable along the entire strike length. Triton, therefore, has the luxury of being able to identify and strike only the higher grade graphite and vanadium zones within the Mutola zone: clearly, this keeps costs low. Triton started the project as an exploration program and due to the quality of the “results over the footprint, it has turned very quickly into a resource definition exercise: “we covered a lot of ground and, as you can imagine, that footprint being nearly 5.2 square kilometres is a huge area and we’re fortunate that the mineralization we found was consistent with along the surface and at depth and it’s a rare thing to have that in any sort of deposit….We can see a consistency that we can project over a number of kilometres… And of course for us to find a larger elephant right beside another elephant, being Syrah Resources, is really an amazing thing.” Indeed, Triton’s property sits right beside Syrah, which was dethroned by Triton as having the largest graphite resource in the world – Triton has caught up! So, Triton, in six months has gone from junior explorer to no. 1 in the world. Triton also benefits from the availability of pre-existing and excellent infrastructure from the presence of a large port just 200 km. away to access to electricity and good roads...

1-ton ‘shabu’ slips thru PH ports–PDEA | Philip News | Breaking News
1-ton ‘shabu’ slips thru PH ports–PDEA | Philip News | Breaking News About 1 ton of “shabu” (crystal meth) from Taiwan worth about  P7 billion slipped through local ports and law enforcement authorities, and could now be circulating around the country, the chief of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said on Friday. After a shipping container loaded with two large magnetic lifters that held about 500 kilograms of shabu worth P4.3 billion was seized on Tuesday at the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino told reporters that he had a “gut feeling” that there were more of the same. Pursuing his hunch, Aquino on Friday led PDEA and customs agents and the police to a warehouse at General Mariano Alvarez in Cavite province, where they found four identical magnetic lifters. Drug-sniffing dogs detected traces of shabu in the empty hollow parts of the massive steel devices, which Aquino estimated had contained about 1 ton, or 1,000 kilograms, of shabu with a street value of P6.8 billion. “Initial information reveals that these illegal drugs came from Taiwan, Republic of China, and the syndicates only used Malaysia as a transshipping point,” Aquino said. ‘SHABU’ LIFTERS PDEA chief Aaron Aquino (above) inspects one of four magnetic lifters that contained traces of “shabu” (crystal meth) already emptied by drug traders that smuggled about P6.8 billion of the illegal drug in a Cavite warehouse on Friday.

10 Crazy Facts About BLACK HOLES in SPACE
From turning things into spaghetti to erasing your past, these are 10 Crazy Facts About BLACK HOLES in SPACE. they are fascinating, interesting, let' s explore the universe, with this astronomy lesson. Subscribe for more! ►https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYaxPiba3oxmeL_3jKxnYA?sub_confirmation=1◄ Stay updated ►https://www.instagram.com/insanecuriositychannel/◄ ► https://www.facebook.com/InsaneCuriosity/◄ 10. They weren’t discovered by Einstein Even though Albert Einstein predicted black holes in 1916 with his general theory of relativity, he wasn’t the first one to hypothesize about these fascinating astronomical objects. It was actually English clergyman and natural philosopher John Mitchell who first proposed the existence of black holes in a paper published in 1783, calling them "dark stars". Mitchell argued that particles emitted by a star would be slowed down by the star’s gravitational pull and calculated that this would be the case with a star more than 500 times the size of the Sun. He also predicted that these objects would be invisible since light would not be able to escape from them. Mitchell suggested that there might be many "dark stars" in the universe, which proved to be true since astronomers now know that black holes exist at the centers of most galaxies. What’s even more incredible is that Mitchell was able to accurately predict that we could detect "dark stars" by looking for star systems which behaved gravitationally like two stars. Centuries later, astronomers confirmed his prediction and determined that all of the candidate stellar black holes in our galaxy are part of binary star systems. Unfortunately, Mitchell’s ideas weren’t well received at the time and he died in obscurity. It wasn’t until the 1970s that his writings re-surfaced and his contribution to the science of black holes was recognized. 9. They make sound You were probably taught in school that there is no sound in outer space, since space is a vacuum and sound waves can’t travel through a vacuum. Well, that’s not completely true. Distortions in the fabric of spacetime, also known as gravitational waves, cause the spacetime to vibrate and produce sound when they pass near object with mass. With special equipment such as Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO, astronomers can amplify these faint sounds billions of times and actually hear what the universe sounds like. In 2003, NASA astronomers using Chandra X-ray Observatory discovered for the first time sound waves coming from a supermassive black hole. The sound was the deepest one ever detected from any object in the universe and it came from hundreds of thousands of light years away. This “noisy” black hole is located in the Perseus cluster of galaxies - one of the most massive objects in the known universe located 250 million light years from Earth. The pitch of the sound generated by the supermassive black hole translates into the note of B flat. However, a human ear would have no chance of detecting this cosmic music because the note is 57 octaves lower than middle-C and has a frequency over a million billion times deeper than the limits of human hearing. Before we move on with our list, take a second to hit that subscribe button so you don’t miss any of our upcoming content! 8. They come in different sizes When most people think of black holes, they imagine giant areas in outer space that in everything around them. But black holes actually come in different sizes – from microscopic to supermassive. Oh, and they don’t actually , but more on that later. The largest type of black hole is known as the supermassive black hole. These gargantuan objects can reach sizes equivalent to anywhere between hundreds of thousands to billions of solar masses. The most massive black hole ever discovered is TON 618, which is thought to weigh in at 66 billion times the mass of the Sun! The smallest black hole on the other hand, is only 15 miles (or 24 kilometers) in diameter and weighs in at about 3.8 times the mass of the Sun. Even though the existence of micro black holes is still purely theoretical, some scientists believe that tiny black holes may be artificially produced. In fact, physicist John Archibald Wheeler has calculated that a very powerful hydrogen using all the deuterium in all the water on Earth could generate a micro black hole. 7. They don’t Black holes are often portrayed in science fiction movies as tunnels to other dimensions that everything in sight. However, this is yet another common misconception about black holes. Suction is caused by pulling an object into a vacuum, which is not what black holes are. Black holes are formed when a very massive star reaches the end of its life and explodes as a supernova. The core of the dying star compacts into an infinitely dense mathematical point with an extremely strong gravitational pull.

Hastings Technology Metals on having approximately $5Billion worth of rare metals in the ground
November 10, 2015 — Malcolm Mason, Non-Executive Director of Hastings Technology Metals Limited (ASX: HAS) in an interview with Tracy Weslosky, Publisher for InvestorIntel discuss the significant magnetic materials resource update in the Yangibana project announced recently. Primarily neodymium and praseodymium are the main metals at Hastings Technology Metals and they supply about 85% of the value of the mineralization. Tracy Weslosky: I want to start by congratulating you. You’ve just put out major milestone news here recently. Can you tell us about your new resource announcement and hit us with the highlights please. Malcolm Mason: Well, the highlight is we now have 12 million tons of resources and within that there’s over 130,000 tons of rare earths. We have approximately $5 billion dollars’ worth of rare earth metals in the ground on our project now. Tracy Weslosky: If that doesn’t get everyone’s interest I don’t know what will Malcolm. Let me back you up a little bit. For everyone out there who may not be familiar with Hastings’ Yangibana project, can you give us an overview of this project? Malcolm Mason: Yangibana is about 300 kilometers from the coast in the Gascoyne region. It covers around 650 square kilometers. We have outcropping mineralization over a distance of more 50 strike kilometers. Much of the ore is quite shallow. It looks as though the metallurgy is going to come out very nicely for us. Tracy Weslosky: Well, let’s get right to the metallurgy because this is a 39-page news release so we have a lot of exciting nuggets in here, first and foremost, of course, is Hasting’s specialized targeting for the most high-priced rare earths or technology metals. Can you talk to us specifically about this four metals and what you found in your most recent drilling program? Malcolm Mason: In terms of the main metals for us, neodymium, praseodymium are the main metals. They supply about 85% of the value of the mineralization. We have dysprosium and also europium. Tracy Weslosky: You’ve done a significant amount of drilling here in the last year. Can you tell me what the plan of action is with this drilling program and what you’re planning on doing next? Malcolm Mason: Well, as part of the PFS and along with a host of other things we’re doing, we will issue a report or a PFS report probably about March of next year. That means we have to cover a whole host of items, too many to note. But, maybe as a point of the detail, we’ve identified potable drinking water sufficient to supply a mine of more than a million tons per annum for as long as you would want in an area that was previously considered to be a desert…to access the rest of the interview, click here Disclaimer: Hastings Technology Metals Limited is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel.

GOOD NEWS: President Mnangagwa's US$16 billion deals begin to bear fruit
MOST of the $16 billion investment commitments to Zimbabwe, the bulk of which are in the mining sector, are progressively coming to fruition, with the $4,2 billion platinum project by Cyprus firm Karo Resources set to be commissioned on 23 June.The Government has already set up an inter-Ministerial committee to facilitate the seamless implementation of the deal.Another firm, Premier African Resources, which is listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange (LSE), is understood to be fundraising for $64 million needed for the Zulu Lithium Project located 80 kilometres from Bulawayo.Similarly, Australian Stock Exchange (ASX)-listed Prospect Resources announced on Monday last week that it had roped in JR Goddard to mobilise “plant and equipment immediately” for its Arcadia Lithium Project — located 38 kilometres from Harare — with the ground-breaking ceremony expected “in the coming weeks”.About $55 million will be used for the first phase of the project.Prospect Resources says President Emmerson Mnangagwa will officiate at the event.Deals for coal, coal-bed methane, gold and asbestos are understood to be at different stages of execution.In an interview last week, Mines and Mining Development Minister Mr Winston Chitando said the Government is constantly monitoring progress on the deals.“Actualisation of the Karo Resources project is well on course and we will have the ground-breaking ceremony for it on June 23, which will be a Saturday.We have also formed an inter-ministerial committee that has been meeting frequently to set the trajectory towards implementing the deal on the Government side,” said Mr Chitando.“On May 15, we held a meeting which reaffirmed the implementation milestones that we have, which include dates for the ground-breaking ceremony.We will also announce other implementation issues as we go,” he said.The $4,2 billion deal was signed on March 22 in Harare by Mines and Mining Development Minister Mr Winston Chitando and Karo Resources chairperson Mr Loucas Pouroulis at a ceremony attended by President Mnangagwa, VP Mohadi and senior Government officials.Mr Pouroulis has more than 50 years experience in the mining sector and is renowned for founding Petra Diamonds, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and is currently valued at $560 million.In 2006, he also founded the $480 million Tharisa — listed in Johannesburg and London — and produced 1,3 million tonnes of chrome concentrate and almost 144 000 ounces of platinum last year.The South African mining entrepreneur also founded Eland Platinum in 2005, but the venture was sold two years later to Swiss-headquartered Xstrata — the world’s largest producer of ferrochrome — for $1 billion.But substantial headway has been made in lithium mining ventures as well.According to Minister Chitando, a number of projects are presently under implementation.“We held a lithium symposium at the recently held Chamber of Mines Conference in Victoria Falls an

The Palm Island, Dubai UAE - Megastructure Development
An awe-inspiring engineering feat, Dubai Palm Islands is definitely the largest artificial islands on earth. These Islands are three man made islands in the form of massive palm trees connected to the beaches of Dubai. The first island is the Palm Jumeirah, Jebel Ali Palm second and the third is the Palm Deira which is the biggest of them all. This artificial archipelago located off the coastline of United Arab Emirates in Persian Gulf. Dubai islands project was commissioned by Sheikh Mohammed in an effort to maximize beachfront property. Dubai's palm tree-shaped resort island on land built from the sea will contribute 120 km of beaches. Aside from the construction of the ambitious expansion, there is also the problem of constructing a mini city, which consists of 4,500 high-end residential homes, miles of roads, luxurious hotels and many amenities that will require basic human resources including electricity, safe drinking water and many more. This enormous project will position Dubai as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. I will tell you why these islands have appeared and that they must satisfy. Dubai is an emirate that open sea about 50 km (an estimate) and the sites required for building projects are on the beach. To view course and especially to "park" in front of the yacht's property or even assembly. Well when the beach was not available, and demand persists, the beach had invented. And it appeared artificial islands. Hence so sophisticated forms of the islands: they had to provide a larger opening to the ocean. This new concept quickly caught on. 'Only a' product 'high-end, the latest wrinkle in the most creative developers metropolis. A new source of land, location of the trick of the planet Earth! The job went, the two islands were settled immediately, with mixed development, spectacular, exorbitant, and finally in Dubai's specific style ... In parallel to the World archipelago started building and other projects are still on the drawing board Nakheel, developer. But crisis compels us to winter a little ... Where is the dream of similar islands: In Lebanon, wants to build a cedar shaped islands, the symbol of this country. Russia wants to try an island / an archipelago in Black in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics, at least that is speaking through the past years. Also in Japan there are several large airports built on artificial islands. The Palm Islands are artificial peninsulas constructed of sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf by the Belgian company Jan De Nul and the Dutch company Van Oord. The sand is sprayed by the dredging ships, which are guided by DGPS, onto the required area in a process known as rain-bowing because of the arcs in the air when the sand is sprayed. The outer edge of each Palm's encircling crescent is a large rock breakwater. The breakwater of the Palm Jumeirah has over seven million tons of rock. The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago (islands) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Major commercial and residential infrastructures will be constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in The UAE. The Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractors, Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world's specialists in land reclamation, were hired to complete construction. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira. Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent. The settlements will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands are located off the coast of The UAE in the Persian Gulf and will add 520 kilometers of beaches to the city of Dubai. The first two islands will comprise of approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. The Palm Deira will be composed of approximately one billion cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be quarried in The UAE. Among the three islands, there will be over 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach side villas and apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spas. The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began. The Palm Deira is planned to have a surface area of 46.35 square kilometers and was announced for development in October 2004. GC Privé ~ A world of luxury www.gcprive.com

"Alive Water" Project
Innovative project "Alive Water - new technologies for drinking water and cooled air from the high-latitude ice". The authors - Hamid Khalidov, Ulluby Khalidov (Dagestan, Russia). Part 1. According to the UN's official data, fresh water consumption will grow by one-third over the next 25 years, and will almost double for drinking water. At the same time the planet's water resources are getting scarcer. Already one-third of the world population live in countries, where water is in short supply; by 2025 two-thirds of them will live in such countries. Almost every fifth on the Earth suffers shortage of safe drinking water. The world tension is escalating because of the shared rivers, threatening with armed conflicts because of water shortage. The two-thirds of fresh water reserves are concentrated in high-latitude glaciers of the planet. Various projects on ice delivery from Antarctica, Greenland have been arising. As a rule, the question in these projects was about practically unfeasible propulsion of icebergs by vessels and about unprofitable transportation of quick-thawing ice-crumbs by tankers. None of this numerous projects has been realized so far. The offered by us technology of ice delivery and utilization includes the following stages: extraction of ice-blocks weighing many thousand tons; hauling the ice-blocks down into water; loading from water into the hold of the original design vessel - trimaran-ledovoz; transportation of the ice-blocks; unloading the ice-blocks in a port of destination into a special ice-receiving plant. There the sun and incoming hot outside air cause the ice to thaw, transforming it into the thawed water, and the air being cooled down can be used for industrial and household purposes. The cost price of one liter of such ice water amounts to 1 US cent. By specialists' calculations, over two thousand trimarans - ice-carrier ships of hundred thousand tons displacement each will be required in the nearest 50 years to provide countries and regions with fresh water and ice. First of all Arab and African states, regions of Southeast Asia, Japan, China are in great need of fresh ice water and cooled air, although both Europe and the USA won't reject thawed water - the best water for men's health. To avoid deadheading (empty voyages}, on the way back trimarans are loaded with any cargo stowed in a new originally designed floating system - barcon placed and transported inside the hold of a trimaran - ice-carrier ship. The barcons are used for the transportation of all types of cargo - oil, liquefied gas, containers, bulk cargo, timber etc. Utilization of transported ice allows to save irreplaceable hydrocarbon fuel, and thus not to burn atmospheric oxygen, not to evolve heat in the atmosphere and not to enhance the greenhouse effect. Globalization and implementation of the Project on the world scale will positively influence upon the stabilization of the world's climate and ecology, retarding negative processes occurring today in the world. It is not necessary to build specialized ice-receiving plants for countries and regions located in moderate latitudes, where summer temperatures are not very high, and, hence, no need in cooled air. Ice will be utilized immediately after cutting the ice-blocks into the smaller-sized chunks and ice crumbs. We would like to relieve ecologists' anxiety concerning probable consequences from the activity on ice extraction for nature of the Antarctic Continent, Greenland, Alaska. If to consider the normal water consumption as 2,5 liters per a day, then one billion water-requiring people for one year will utilize one billion tons of ice. That is just one cubic kilometer of ice. The Antarctic Continent contains about 30 million cubic kilometers of ice.

Iceberg B09B: Drilling for answers
East Antarctica’s Commonwealth Bay dramatically changed with the arrival of iceberg B09B in 2010. The word ‘berg’ doesn’t really do it justice though. B09B is a monster. Weighing in at an estimated 380 billion tonnes, there’s enough freshwater in B09B to provide all of New York’s drinking needs for 300 years. In an Antarctic version of pool, the berg knocked a 78-kilometre tongue of ice that extended off the continent as the Mertz Glacier and then ground itself into the sea bed of Commonwealth Bay. The arrival of this colossus has had an immediate and devastating impact on the region. The sea ice that forms in Commonwealth Bay can no longer be swept offshore and instead stays trapped, becoming thicker each year, putting Mawson’s Huts sixty-five kilometres back from the coast. As a result, some scientists have suggested the formation of cold, salty bottom water has ceased, with massive implications for our planet's ocean circulation. Here University of New South Wales Dr Chris Fogwill describes the ocean drilling program of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 2013-2014 on the edge of Commonwealth Bay and shows off some of our first exciting results. A huge thanks to Chris, Eleanor Rainsley, Mat Lipson, Australasian Antarctic Expedition 2013-2014 team members and the crew of the MV Akademik Shokalskiy for all their help during the voyage and on our return.

Exotic Pulsar and White Dwarf Test Einstein's Relativity Theory | ESO Space Science HD
Visit my website at http://www.junglejoel.com - pulsar PSR J0348+0432 is the remains of a ancient supernova explosion. It has twice the mass of our Sun, but is just 20 kilometers in diameter. Its surface gravity is more than 300 billion times stronger than that on Earth and at its center every cubic centimeter has more than one billion tons of matter squeezed into it. It has a companion white dwarf star that is the glowing remains of a much lighter star that has lost its atmosphere and is slowly cooling. Astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope have made observations of the white dwarf and combined it with very precise timing of the pulsar from radio telescopes. This close binary radiates gravitational waves and must lose energy. This causes the orbital period to change very slightly and the predictions for this change from general relativity and some other competing theories are different. So far, the results seem to support Einstein's theory of relativity. The above video is an artist's impression of the exotic double object - a tiny, but very heavy neutron star that spins 25 times each second, orbited every two and a half hours by a white dwarf star. The neutron star is the pulsar named PSR J0348+0432 that is giving off radio waves that can be picked up on Earth by radio telescopes. Although this unusual pair is very interesting in its own right it is also a unique laboratory for testing the limits of physical theories. Please rate and comment, thanks! Credit: ESO, L. Calçada

Missile Race: India vs Pak vs China While China's DF-31 travels 8000 km compared to Agni's 5000 km range distance, Pakistan's Ghauri is still playing catch-up at 1500 km. While Pakistan has been at it for quite a while, Musharaff had stopped funding the Ghauri project a while ago. India successfully launched the Agni-V missile yesterday morning, marking the country's entry into an elite group of ICBM capable countries. The Agni-V which cost the DRDO Rs 25 billion to construct, has a range of 5000km and can carry a 1.5 ton nuclear warhead. These are the first .
