On July 28th 1900, the King of Italy Umberto I was having dinner in a restaurant in the city of Monza. It turned out later that the restaurant’s owner looked identical to the king. The restaurant owner’s name was Umberto, his wife’s name was the same as the queen’s and the restaurant was opened on the same date as the king’s inauguration. The Restaurant-owner Umberto was shot dead the next day. So was King Umberto.

"Microbe experiment suggests we could all be Martians"

The theory supposes that life was able to gain a tentative foothold on the red planet as it cooled down and became more hospitable several billion years ago. At the time, the planet’s surface was regularly bombarded with rocky detritus from the asteroid belt, knocking clumps of rock and the microbes living on them into space, where the gravity of the sun brought them hurtling towards Earth.

"Lost Cities Better Seen From Space"

With the help of new technologies NASA experts and archaeologists are discovering ancient Maya settlements in Guatemala. The potential of this project is to transform the way archeology is done, not only in Guatemala, but in Brazil, Bolivia, Cambodia or anywhere where the forest has traditionally obscured ruins from view. Seeing ruins from space changes the entire way that archeology is approach in a tropical environment.

"In Tonga, pigs fish but don’t fly - yet."

TALAFO’OU, TONGA a€" Travelers who think they have seen it all should head to the island kingdom of Tonga for one of the Pacific’s strangest tourist attractions: "fishing pigs."

Hogs on the archipelago’s main island, Tongatapu, have conquered their fear of the ocean and now forage at low tide for crabs, mussels, seaweed, and fish marooned in rock pools.

BodA©lA©

This is how little we know about the Earth and how it works: a team of scientists from NASA, Oxford, the Weizmann Institute, the University of Maryland, that of Sao Paulo and others have discovered what they call "a remarkable arrangement in nature": that a tiny region of the Sahara desert, the BodA©lA© depression located northeast of Lake Chad, is the main source of minerals to the Amazon rain forest.

Absolute China

But the closer you get to what is happening on the ground in China, its so-called capitalism looks nothing like any form of capitalism the west has known and the transition from communism remains fundamentally problematic. The alpha and omega of China’s political economy is that the Communist party remains firmly in the driving seat not just of government, but of the economy - a control that goes into the very marrow of how ownership rights are conceived and business strategies devised. The western conception of the free exercise of property rights and business autonomy that goes with it, essential to any notion of capitalism, does not exist in China.

Have you seen videos like that anywhere else? Didna€™t think so. Can your laser pointer do that? Didna€™t think so.
