15 Baby Dinosaurs Discovered in a Crowded Nest

15 baby dinosaurs discovered in a nest in the heart of Gobi Desert, Mongolia. It seems the baby dinosaurs overcrowded the nest waiting for their mother to come searching for food. They are about 4 to 6 inches long and no more than a year old.

The discovery of baby dinosaurs added unbelievable information and photos to the already known Tugrikin Shire where lots of fossils buried. One amazing example of discovery among paleontologists is the fighting dinosaurs seem lock-up in mortal combat – the Velociraptor and the Protoceratops.

Scientists confirmed those 15 baby dinosaurs were cousins of Triceratops and they are called Protoceratops andrewsi. These were the plant-eating dinosaurs about the size of a sheep with frill at the back of their head forming unique decoration.

It seems this group of baby dinosaurs was buried alive in a sandstorm that overrun them during rustic conditions. Gobi Desert during those times were windblown dune field that is about 80 feet high when sandstorm burst. The harsh reality of environment for living dinosaurs that exist 70 million years ago.

It was found out that Protoceratops, a kind of dinosaurs that will taking care of their young at the early stages of life. But the presence of harsh environment mortality is high that is difficult for them to survive in a later stages of life.

Metallic Hair-Thin Pipes as the World Lightest Material

A web of metallic hair thin pipes became the lightest material known by mankind – less dense than air and 200 times lighter than styrofoam. It was invented by a team of researcher from University of California at Irvine, HRL Laboratories and the California Institute of Technology.

The metal can be seen sitting at the top of dandelion fluff without damaging or strangling the top of the flower in an unbelievable scene.

The discovery takes an inspiration from Eiffel Tower and Golden Gate Bridge which these structures are examples of light and strong for their size and by architectural design. It was found out that Eiffel Tower is much taller and lighter compares to Pyramids of Egypt. It was a breakthrough for modern buildings the same way to create by focusing on the structures of materials.

According to the lead scientist Tobias Schaedler their target is to revolutionize lightweight materials by adopting principles of architecture into their design. One of which is the aerospace station where it is important to have ultra-lightweight and design principles imposed.

“We’re envisioning applications in structural components, such as in aerospace,” Schaedler said. “Its energy-absorption capabilities might also make it useful for acoustic-, vibration- and shock-damping. We can control the architecture on the millimeter, micrometer and nanometer scales, to design materials with tailored properties for specific applications, if we want.”

The team of researchers also experimenting other kinds of materials such as diamond, polymers, and ceramics to make any architectural forms of a web of thin-film materials.

Thomas Suareaz is not just an ordinary kid in his own age. The spirit of Steve Jobs resurrected in his style of presentation at a very young developer introducing his accomplishment in programming world of Silicon Valley. His iconic app called Earth Fortune came out in a big screen that is unbelievable creation at his delicate age.

His apps were suited for iOS devices in which he studied Apple’s SDK and Xcode. His love of Apple devices signify his motivation from Steve Jobs. He also attended some basic programmings such as Python, C, and Java. In school, he organized App Club where to educate young students in how to learn programming and developing an apps. Many of his schoolmates don’t know where to go and how to make a program. Through with App Club he can share of what he learned and imparts the knowledge of programming language.

His mission for App Club is to create an apps for iPad that is intended for education, which will be distributed to local school district, of course, free of charge. while it can be sold also to private individuals.

Cremation in South Korea – From Ashes to Beads

South Koreans are now changing the culture of the dead. Instead of burying the dead in a cemetery, they are now accepting cremation: turning the dead body into ashes. Much more, making it a difference, turning the ashes into gem-like beads. Making it bizarre transformation of culture that used to be a natural form of disposing the dead.

The gem-like beads from the remains of your love ones relates emotional attachment seeing them in your hands like precious stones. This how Kim II-nam of South Korea deeply attached to his father who died 27 years ago. Maintaining treasure moments with his father to fight from grief and keeping his father close to him the moments seeing those crystal beads in his hands.

Not only Kim II-nam started embracing the new trend of keeping the death of love ones but the whole Korean communities started leaving the Confucian way. A law was passed in 2000 to remove the grave after 60 years buried in land. Additional campaign from the government is pushing their citizens to accept cremations to save space in a densely populated small country. The campaign was successful that cremation rate increase putting only 3 out of 10 dead humans were buried.

The rise of cremation in South Korea gives way to the sharp increase of beads maker companies that involves technologies in making gem-like beads from human ashes. It will take 90-minute for the whole process with ultra-high temperature forming into solid crystal. The resulting colors attracted one’s eye mostly blue-green, while others are turning into pink, purple, and black.

Bonhyang is one of the companies successful in this field founded by Bae Jae-yul. According to Bae Jae-yul the beads allow people to keep their relatives close to them, wherever they go.

Kim II-nam paid as much as $870 to the company who transforms the ashes into crystal beads after digging up the bones of his father from the grave. He put it in his urn the blue-green color like gem stones. Some of the beads put it in his car while some give it to his five daughters. Whenever he saw them it feels his father is in them.

The other side of moral issue is profit-taking venture when companies dramatic rise find it lucrative for business the rising demands of cremation and beads making.

But some conservative against it. For them the highest level of respect for the dearly departed is to let them go back to nature.

Hippopotamus Humphrey Killed His Owner Marius Els

It was shocking to believe that Marius Els, a farmer who owns 400 acre farm in South Africa, was killed and submerge in the river for long period of time. Cause of his death: strangled and bitten by his own pet consider him as ‘his own son’ for seven years called Humphrey, the hippopotamus.

Humphrey was five-month old when he was adopted by Mr. Els and grown into 1,200 kg robust pet after seven years. The relationship between them was so special that declared Mr. Els that the hippo is like a son to him and like a human being.

They have grown deeply with their relationship in his own acre that everyday was a bonding time together anywhere in the farm. Mr. Els made a special lake for Humphrey where the hippo play time in the water while growing-up, and is part of his natural world from land and submerge in the water. When Humphrey grown into a young male adult, Mr. Els used to sit at his back like riding a horse.

Their togetherness for years was an excellent example of like man and dog relationship. But for Mr. Els relationship is far more than that. He declared that they have special relationship that others don’t understand. A unique relationship with the most dangerous animal in the world.

But last Saturday, the special relationship ended in tragedy. Mr. Els body was mutilated and had been underwater for long period of time.

Hippos are considered human killer with its large canine teeth as their weapon. They immediately killed its prey without any reason or provocation. They can run with high speed to chase its victims.

Animal instinct is the most dangerous side that can penetrate even with a bond of relationships.

Cyclop Unborn Baby Shark

We believe stories from parents regarding cyclops living in a secluded place in forest or just a legend stories where giants and fairies struck in a wonderland. Now we tend to believe that they are real from the imaginations of story teller. Now, witness the real story of unborn shark with one eye at the forehead.

Fisherman Enrique Lucero León from Mexico able to discovered the unborn baby shark in the womb of its mother after getting out the fetus from the stomach. The 22-inch white shark with clearly one eye at the middle is rare phenomenon. No one could say the how it affects the development when the sea they are living is pollution free, or possibly, not the effects of climate change.

Maybe the ancestors came from something that live beyond our environment that cyclops has its own world under the sea. But the discovery makes science has its own explanation. Fetus with one-eye functioning result from congenital condition called cyclopia, which happens to several animal species which includes humans. Another sighted cause for abnormalities due lack of vitamin A.

Adrenaline trekkers are flocking to Spain’s El Caminito Del Rey which dubbed as most dangerous path in the world. The 110-year old path became the favorites for hair-raising adventurists want to experience the hell above 330-feet.

El Caminito Del Rey was built in 1905 also known as King’s Pathway for workers to travel between two hydroelectric power plants. In 2000, it was closed when two workers plunge to death when crossing the most dangerous path of the world.

Much of the one-meter wide walkway is in crumbling conditions due to rusting, gaping holes, no handrails and sections have completely smashed down. A makeshift wire attached only to the rock to give some slight degree of safety for walkers crossing the path. But for others they don’t give much attention to any safety equipment at all.

Witness them going the thrill of life in one mistake move: heaven or hell?
