Battle of Hastings: Site of 'sequel' fight between sons of King Harold and the Normans tracked down to north Devon

When he was a small boy, Nick Arnold’s grandfather entertained him with stories of a gory medieval battle between Vikings and Saxons which had, according to local legend, taken place close to his home in the north Devon countryside.
Fate took Mr Arnold down the path of a career as a successful children’s science writer but he never forgot his grandfather’s tales and his decision to investigate the reality behind the folklore looks set to change the understanding of English history.
After five years of research, the author of the popular Horrible Science series has pinpointed for the first time the site of the battle as an encounter not between rampaging Vikings and Saxons but the decisive clash in the fight for control of England started by the Battle of Hastings.

Who Is Robert John
CURIOUS CANNOCK CHASE
It seems that there’s a lot of weird stuff that goes on at Cannock Chase and, for a Paranormal Investigator, there’s a lot to choose from. So, consider the list of ghoulish goodies that I had to pick from when I was looking for a new case:

The Black Eyed Girl

o-BLACK-EYED-CHILD-570

This apparition allegedly first made an appearance on the Chase over thirty years ago, terrifying local residents with her evil gaze and dangerous tricks. Is she the ghost of a young girl, buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in this beauty spot?

The Man-Monkey

chad

Cryptozoologists call him the British Bigfoot; other’s think he’s something else entirely. This hairy hominid has supposedly lived in the dense thickets of Cannock Chase for hundreds of years. There are sightings that date back to the 1800s, and plenty of recent ones too.

The Cannock Chase Werewolf

monsters-werewolf_00425633

Reports are abundant of a werewolf near the German War Cemetery on Cannock Chase – an eerie enough location at the best of times. This mysterious creature is said to have bright eyes and razor sharp teeth – and it isn’t restricted to night-time appearances. There are a significant number of daytime sightings that make the Cannock Chase werewolf an exception to the usual mythological rule. Is this beast linked to the Man-Monkey?

The Lady of the Chase

grey lady

A grey lady type ghost who is believed to have roamed the area for a very long time. Since the black-eyed child burst onto the scene sightings of this apparition have dropped off somewhat but she’s still out there. Watching.

Pig Man

To me, the above four are all fascinating and worthy of a really good investigation, but when it comes to supernatural beings believed to haunt the wooded expanse of Cannock Chase, the Pig-Man has got to be the strangest of the lot. Believed to have been created during a military experiment in the woods during World War 2 the Pig Man continues to roam the Chase today. Some people claim that it was just a story designed to keep the public away from German prisoners of war stationed on the land but increased reports of the Pig-Man make this particular subject worth a closer look.

The Origins of the Pig-Man

It is about now that we must consider our quarry – the Pig-Man. Who, or what, is he? To explain the origins of this porcine person some assistance comes from a local legend from the Cannock area:

Following the Second World War a team of British and American military scientists combined to conduct a series of strange experiments in the region. Similar to the eugenics movement and worringly similar to the Nazis methods of human experimentation, the tests went too far. The tale tells of how they abducted a woman, hypnotized her and impregnated her with an artificially created human-pig DNA seed. The plan was to obtain a creature they could perform their tests on.

The story goes on to say that after ten months, and no child, the scientists decided that the experiment was a failure. But in actual fact, the pregnancy was delayed and the child was born late. The creature that was born was a chimera – part pig, part human. This beast subsequently escaped captivity and went to ground on Cannock Chase where, it is believed, it remains today.

There are some flaws with this story. If this was such a secret experiment, then how did the story get out? Who was the mother of the Pig-Man, and where is she now? And where did such an experiment actually take place?

Well, looking at the later question, as we have seen, Cannock Chase was well known for its military presence during the two World Wars so it is possible that there may have been some establishment on the Chase where experiments took place. Indeed, there were, across the United Kingdom, several establishments that undertook secret scientific research. Some locations have now revealed what took place, others remain tight-lipped – or even demolished such as Emmott Hall in Lancashire (known to have been taken over by the army as a barracks in 1939, rumoured to have been a scientific establishment) which was demolished in 1967. We also know that following the Second World War, the United States executed Operation Paperclip, which saw the capture of German scientists to deny their expertise to the Russians and, surprisingly, the British. Amongst those scientists were those who engaged in human experimentation.

So, have genetic experiments actually taken place upon Cannock Chase, or at least in the surrounding area? Is Cannock Chase a landlocked version of the Island of Doctor Moreau with the Pig-Man, the Monkey Man, and the Werewolf all manifestations of some secret experiments? I suppose it’s fun to cast around these ideas and, when conducting a paranormal investigation, you do have to keep an open mind.

So, Cannock Chase – here I come…

But please let me know of your experiences of Curious Cannock Chase too…

Justins movement

Hey Hey, thanks for the add! If you want to keep up with my world adventures and how I am able to work while I travel full time, I would love to connect, click on my Instagram bio link and say hey

I struggle to keep up with direct messages on Instagram so if we can catch up on email or facebook that would be cool

If you told me 9 months ago I would be TRAVELLING FULL-TIME, speaking at marketing events around the world and helping others achieve the same dream, I would have not believed you for a second!

A lot of us “like” our jobs, but liking a job just because it gives you a good salary, pays the mortgage and feeds the family, may not be good enough for you, just like it wasn’t enough for me.

What is your dream? Travelling the world? Spending more time with the kids? Following a hobby or passion that you don’t have time for anymore because of the 9-5 grind? Whatever your dream, I urge you to find a way to live your life through your passions and do what makes you happy!

Dog run down by police ,murder to a innocent animal

Dog running loose on motorway deliberately run over and killed by police
The dog had been running loose on the A55 at varying locations between the Llanfairfechan roundabout and the Conwy tunnel in Wales

By Agency1:16AM GMT 24 Feb 2016
A dog that was running loose on a motorway was deliberately run down and killed by traffic police, North Wales Police have confirmed.
In a statement issued on their website the force said that the dog had been running loose on the A55 at varying locations between the Llanfairfechan roundabout and the Conwy tunnel.
Despite attempts by the Roads Policing Unit to catch the dog, it continued to run in and out of swerving traffic that was travelling in excess of 70mph on an unlit carriageway.
The incident – which had "potential for a serious collision" happened during the early hours of Monday.
An officer who had tried to take hold of the dog was bitten.
• Thousands sign petition asking government to make it illegal to run over a cat and not report it

The breed of the dog, not pictured, has not been specified  Photo: ALAMY
Chief Inspector Darren Wareing said that several calls were received by the North Wales Police control room shortly after 3am and the decision to take action was not taken "lightly".
He said: "The only safe option was to run the dog over at sufficient speed to ensure that it was destroyed and would not suffer. Other methods of destruction were considered, but were ruled out on the grounds of public safety."
Mr Wareing said that several attempts were made to catch the dog.
• Man run over by truck 'driven' by his dog
"One car and an HGV had to swerve to avoid the dog whilst the officers remained on foot in the carriageway. The potential for a serious collision was present throughout, and in the circumstances there was no alternative way that officers could contain the dog and minimise risks to motorists."

He added: "Fast roads such as the A55 present inherent risks, and to have vehicles including an HGV having to swerve in the dark was deemed unacceptable as the officers witnessed a number of near misses, and were highly concerned about the potential aftermath of a high-speed collision.
"Both officers have their own dogs and did not take this decision lightly. Due to the seriousness of the incident it needed bringing to a conclusion quickly for the safety of all concerned."

Man Refuses To Abandon Chimp, Even Though Everyone Else Has

For more than 30 years, Ponso the chimp has been living on a deserted island off the Ivory Coast. He has no source of food or water, and his companions all died years ago.
But thanks to one man, he's alive.
For several years, a villager named Germain, despite his limited income, has stopped by to drop off food for the lonely chimp. While the diet of bread and bananas isn't enough for the roughly 40-year-old chimp to thrive, it's kept him alive — and it's clear he shows his gratitude.READ MORE =https://www.thedodo.com/ponso-chimp-left-to-die-1563220792.html

Big vacuums could combat 'hairy panic' in Australia city

A rural Australian city is considering vacuuming away "hairy panic" tumbleweed that is clogging up homes.
Substantial rainfall followed by dry conditions has caused a "hairy panic explosion" in Wangaratta, Victoria.
Frustrated residents say they have spent hours each day clearing the weeds, with piles at times reaching roof height.
Now the council says it is considering attaching large vacuums to street sweepers to deal with the problem.READ AND SEE VIDEO =http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-35609602

The Easybeats to AC/DC: The Story of Aussie Rock

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0705t5j/the-easybeats-to-acdc-the-story-of-aussie-rock=
A film about the sound of Australian rock and the emergence of one of the world's greatest rock bands - AC/DC, or Acca Dacca as they are known in Australia, and the legendary music company, Albert Music (Alberts) that helped launched them on to the global rock scene.
Through the 1960s, 70s and 80s, Alberts created a house of hits in Australia that literally changed the sound of Australian popular music.
It started with the Easybeats and their international hit Friday On My Mind back in the 60s. In the 1970s when Australia was in the midst of a deep recession, a rough and ready pub rock sound emerged, characterised by bands like Rose Tattoo who were promoted by family-run company, Alberts. The raw power and fat guitar sound that characterised Aussie rock was pioneered by the Alberts and took Australia and the world by storm.
The sound of Aussie rock really exploded when the Alberts, a well-to-do family from the Sydney suburbs, joined forces with the Youngs, a Glasgow family who had emigrated to Australia. The result was AC/DC.

With the release of Street Fighter V, it's time to look back at the comic books that have expanded the tales of our favorite warriors.

There's no better time to look back at Street Fighter comics than the present. The latest installment of the fighting franchise, Street Fighter V, has finally arrived and there's even a new comic book from UDON. And it's definitely not the first. You could say that the series has as expansive a history in the comics as it does on consoles.
In various forms, Street Fighter has been released across the last two decades in different levels of quality. Ever since the popularity of Street Fighter II, the inclusion of it into any kind of adaptation has been a no-brainer. Not only was it one of the most popular games of the 90's, but its world and characters are only half-defined and there's creative freedom in that. You have a huge cast of names who are identified by just their appearances, gestures, a handful of quotes, several paragraphs of backstory, and an ending cutscene. Considering the video games are constantly redefining themselves (ie. how the Street Fighter Alpha games feel so different from the Street Fighter III games), there are always new characters to incorporate and old characters to revisit. read more =http://www.denofgeek.us/books-comics/street-fighter/235222/the-strange-history-of-street-fighter-comics

Fungi from goats' guts could lead to better biofuels

The legendary abilities of goats and sheep to digest a wide range of inedible materials could help scientists produce cheaper biofuels.
Researchers say fungi from the stomachs of these animals produce flexible enzymes that can break down a wide variety of plant materials.
The scientists say that in tests, the fungi performed as well as the best engineered attempts from industry.
The study has been published in the journal, Science.

Fuel from food

Environmentalists have long criticised the current generation of biofuels that are produced from crops, such as maize, as they believe that using land for fuel instead of food drives up prices and impacts the poor.
Researchers have had some success making usable fuel from food and animal waste. But, so far, the ability to efficiently use the vast majority of cheap, waste organic material has eluded them.
The problem with turning wood chips and grasses into fuel is the matrix of complex molecules found in the cell walls of these tough materials.
Industrial attempts to break these down into the type of sugars that can be refined for fuel often require preheating or treatment with chemicals, which add to the complexity and the cost.read more =http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35612554

Last piece of Einstein’s theory of relativity in line for final ‘proof’

. The last piece of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity may be about to fall into place 100 years after he first revealed it to the world. Scientists searching for minute traces of gravitational waves, infinitesimally subtle distortions through space-time that Einstein predicted would ripple off giant black holes and dying stars millions of light years away, may be about to announce one of the biggest breakthroughs in modern physics. Whispers have been circulating for months that a hypersensitive detector spanning the breadth of the US has finally caught the elusive phenomenon. The team is expected to make a definitive announcement tomorrow (Thursday). If they have found the trail left by gravitational waves, it will be more than just a vindication of Einstein’s mathematical masterpiece. The discovery would allow stargazers to map out hidden galaxies on the other side of the universe by looking out for almost imperceptible disturbances in our own.=READ MORE =http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/last-piece-of-einsteins-theory-of-relativity-in-line-for-final-proof/news-story/30709ff6ddc509e487f8b305b75fe8ed

Secret lives of badgers revealed

The subterranean secrets of badgers have been revealed by a BBC film crew.
Over two years, tiny cameras placed deep underground recorded the comings and goings of a wild badger family.
While the animals have been well studied outside of their setts, until now, little has been known about their behaviour while underground.
Never-before-seen behaviour was filmed, including the badgers diligently making their beds each evening before leaving the setts for a night of foraging.
The crew also captured newborn cubs on camera, as well as grooming and fighting between the older animals.
The footage was recorded for a BBC Natural World wildlife programme.

BRITIAN,S WEIRDEST COUNCIL HOUSES.

These are the tenants who have gone above and beyond to turn their local authority dwellings into something special, including the Sistine Chapel, a Gaudi-inspired indoor garden and even a baked bean museum. A new one-off Channel 4 documentary meets council house tenants like Robert Burns, a former decorator who made his three-bedroom Brighton terrace home into a replica of the Sistine Chapel. Robert has spent 12 years transforming his humble abode into a homage to one of the most iconic artworks of all time, Michaelangelo's ceiling and The Last Judgement fresco. He also recreated the frescoes on the walls of the chapel, which were painted by famous Renaissance artists - but in a quirky twist, instead of just showcasing the lives of the saints and important religious events, he inset several very modern stars including Wayne Rooney, ex-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, Nigella Lawson and Simon Cowell.
It took him three times as long to complete his work as it took painter Michelangelo to complete his masterpiece in Rome. But what makes his feat more spectacular is that the talented artist has never even been to Italy - or been taught how to paint artistically.

Gravitational waves: Numbers don't do them justice

"It's astonishing; it really is." Jim Hough can't stop repeating the phrase.
The veteran gravitational wave hunter from Glasgow University has come to the National Press Club in Washington DC to witness the announcement of the first direct detection of ripples in the fabric of space-time caused by the merger of two "intermediate-sized" black holes.
The numbers look bald on paper, but it's when you try to imagine the scenario being described in those numbers that you rock backwards.
Imagine two monster black holes spinning down on each other in space. One has a mass which is about 35 times that of our Sun, the other roughly 30. At the moment just before they coalesce, they're turning around each other several tens of times a second. And then, their event horizons merge and they become one - like two soap bubbles in a bath.
David Reitze, executive director of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatories (LIGO), described it thus: "Take something about 150km in diameter, and pack 30 times the mass of the Sun into that, and then accelerate it to half the speed of light. Now, take another thing that's 30 times the mass of the Sun, and accelerate that to half the speed of light. And then collide [the two objects] together. That's what we saw here. It's mind boggling."=read more = bbc link=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35553549

Holsworthy couple feel isolated by poor transport links

By NDJJoe  |  Posted: February 11, 2016

Mark, 53, and Enid Raines, 59, find getting around difficult due to Enid's health problems

A MARRIED couple from Holsworthy say they feel isolated in their own home due to poor transport links in the town.

Mark, 53, and Enid Raines, 59, find getting around difficult due to Enid's health problems and the lack of public transport links.

But Devon County Council says the funding for public transport in Holsworthy has not been reduced and there are now extra bus journeys available to the health centre and hospital.

Family has questions for hospital after North Devon man, 45, takes his own life
Has the world’s rarest spider been discovered in Devon?
Enid struggles with her breathing and knees making it difficult to walk even a short distance.

She has to book a car from the Holsworthy Rural Community Transport Service in order to get to doctors' appointments in town and these cars must be booked well in advance.

For former mental health worker Mark it is about more than just getting to doctors' appointments.

He said: "When Enid could walk more things were a lot easier but now it's more difficult to get to appointments because of the notice you have to give.

"If an urgent doctor's appointment was booked in for the same day we wouldn't be able to make it.

"If I wanted to take my wife out for the day as a treat we'd really struggle to do it. Taxis are prohibitively expensive

and difficult to get hold of.

He added: "The buses come very rarely and only really go to Bideford or Barnstaple."

Mark is aware there will be others in the same position.

He is hoping by speaking out others will feel more confident in coming forward with their complaints.

Holsworthy mayor John Allen has acknowledged there is a problem with transport links in the town, for which he blames county council cuts.

He said: "The area is suffering from the severe cut backs imposed on us by Devon County Council.

"It's affecting people who want to visit the town as well as residents wanting to leave.

"Often the problem is you can get somewhere but can you get back? However, I do understand the county council has faced tough choices after recent government cut backs."

Mr Allen is pleased with the work of the Holsworthy Rural Community Transport Service but says the service is limited by its ability to find funds.

A spokesman for Devon County Council said: "The council has not reduced its funding for public transport in the Holsworthy town area, and we are now in fact funding extra bus journeys to the health centre and hospital.

"In addition, the amount of funding that we give to local voluntary car schemes has also increased in the past two years."

Holsworthy's county councillor, Barry Parsons, said he knew some time ago transport links in Holsworthy were going to be put under strain.

He said: "What we have tried to do is put some more capacity into our transport links with schemes like the rural transport service.

"We always knew our links would be for the chopping block."

A spokesman for Stagecoach, which operates buses in the area, said: "Stagecoach already provides bus services between Holsworthy and destinations across Devon including Barnstaple, Okehampton and Exeter.

"Devon County Council subsidise a number of these – as well as other bus services in the area – as they have a responsibility to ensure that socially necessary services are provided.

"The current usage level of bus services in Holsworthy would not support any enhancements without additional financial support from the council to cover the running costs."

Julie Be Siew Hoon Storyteller, Quantum Psychologist, Blogger and Empath at MoaM

A Malaysian (where the heck is this Malaysia?) woman who is virtually a nobody went on a journey of self-discovery. She found many many answers to her unending questions when she seeked answers online. The cyber world is her bestest friend, never judging her questions merely accepting it at face value and immediately giving her millions of answers that she could explore. Google is her bestest friend for it did not discriminate that she is just a housewife and that she has a disability (giftedness is a curse and a disability), Google did not condemn her at first sight nor judge her every action. Google became her most trusted friend because Google can take her anywhere on this planet for a brief visit just to pick on someone's(usually an expert in the chosen field) brain. Google did not stereotype this woman for her skin colour, her appearance or her ability to converse fluently in English and other languages. Even though she does not live in a western country nor is she white...she is on par with most white males in terms of her knowledge and her intelligence. This woman noticed when she joined the community called Facebook that users of Facebook are all self-appointed judge and jury with guns blazing at their sides ready to shoot her down if she so much as make a single error. This woman visited many many online churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and holy places hoping against hope to see the face of god or at least experience the love of god. To her utter shock and extreme disappointment , these holy places on Facebook are nothing but a pig sty of mud fights between the self-righteous moron and the idiotic dogmatic who thinks he is above all else. When she called out their prejudice and discrimination, she got banned from these very unholy and such disgusting 'holy places'. The believers in these groups band together and then they stone her to death. They stone her and then they crucify her. They left her body in the town square as a warning to others who may come after her. They call her an abomination. They label her as evil, they told her that she is satan or the devil incarnate. How can people use such language to demean another human? She took all that abuse and it made her soul so so sick. And you would think that these people who sets up these groups to tell others about the love of jesus...these people would understand what love is? Nay...they are the worst kind of self-righteous judges. The worst kind of murderers as they murder people's spirits on Facebook every single day and they quote scriptures while watching you bleed to death. So this woman next visited the Starseed/new age community. Is it any different? Hahahaaaaa....you would think that since they are vibrating at such high frequencies that they would embrace and love her. NO such luck peeps. The starseeds were blinded by her brilliance and because she is not white or european or come from some royal family...they too reject her and what she had to offer from her broken heart ~ AGAPE LOVE. Oh yes...along the way , many many opportunists saw how effective a leader this woman was and how she seemed to have an age old wisdom. They noticed she had multiple accounts and that she had 3 full accounts of 5k each plus 2 smaller ones of about 1k each....so they did the math in their head and then they decide that they will use her. She got added to so many political groups on Facebook. If anyone takes a peek at her info page ...they can see that for themselves. So these politicians ...you know lah...are worse than tiger sharks! She had a blast trolling those though coz the numbskulled neanderthals in these groups deserve a clobber on their heads with her stunning intellect. She finds it so amusing that these men would purposely pick fights with her just so they would get her attention? O boy...just like her sons at home!! The highlight of her political sojourn on Facebook is this: Raja Petra Kamaruddin inboxed her personally to ask for her support to add members to his group. (*gasp* whaaaaaaaaa...) Also, Dato Ti Lian Ker used to goad her in the inbox for his own political gains, I am telling you the truth ..take it or leave it. And of course some of you still remember that young handsome leader of Gerakan who joined PKR after getting to know this woman personally through Facebook. This man and his wife came to meet up with this woman when she was on vacation in KL. Oh yeah...don't forget that old man who also used her to penetrate sarawak politics, always asking her counsel on how to approach sarawakians, no need to mention names lah. That was local Malaysian politics. Outside of Malaysia, this woman has been roped in to campaign aggressively for a candidate in the last presidential elections in the Philippines. Why do you think she used to have a godson who lives in Manila whom she visited for one day and got stuck at the airport? And yes...of course you do not need to mention her minor role in helping to campaign for Obama in his second presidential election. Obama won did he not? As she predicted. Also, she had some powerful politicians and leaders from all over the world in some of her 20 plus groups that she created and admined single-handedly. Now, she is down to 2 groups and she would like to keep it that way. So people of the world...what do you think of this stupid housewife ? Has she spent her time in the best way possible on Facebook to bring real change to this corrupt and sick sick world? Has anything she has ever done on Facebook be a blessing to you? If you are one of her many many enemies who keeps trying to pick her apart...can you please leave her alone to die in peace? That's all. Enjoy your time on Facebook, make sure you keep killing fellow humans with your lopsided and self-righteous view on life, love and reliegion. Thank you for reading, It is very loooooooooooong because I wish it to be. Oh look...no caps??!!!!!!

Nadejda Rozanova, PhD Biochemistry researcher, Reiki Master\Teacher at Healing energies

I have 3 main goals - first present my cancer cure for public ( more about this method see in the articlehttps://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140626013406-138727290-my-scientific-research-helped-me-to-save-my-cat-from-terminal-cancer?trk=mp-reader-card and in my scientific paper listed in profile). By now my attempts to present it failed, because it is not possible to get funding for cancer cure which is effective and cheap but could not be patented ( it based on natural substances so it could not be patented and big pharma can not benefit from it). But I hope I'll present this cheap, effective cure to the world. This is my plan. Second goal and another side of my cancer research is research of energy healing- see it herehttps://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140312224018-138727290-reiki-can-treat-cancer-cells?trk=mp-reader-card today energy healing are accepted as healing for side effects of cancer treatment only, but my research show that it can kill cancer cells as well. so I am trying to present this kind of cure to public as well. Inspiration for my research for cancer cure was the death of my mother from cancer. Third goal is to return justice to it's ethical and moral standards. I have litigation process which is about property line ( very small encroachment of part of my parking structure is on the neighbor's property) which is very simple law question. But in the road to solve it I faced the facts that justice system is not standing by it's own ethical standards- for example Code of Conduct for United States Judges Canon 3: A Judge Should Perform the Duties of the Office Fairly, Impartially and Diligently. It means among other things that judge should at least read the pleading papers before rule on it, but in my litigation experience judge can rule without even reading paper and without even knowing who wrote it plaintiffs or defendant and what it is bout. Also one of the law is law about perjury and now it looks like it does not exist anymore: not only litigant can lie even if he signed paper under penalty of perjury but nobody concern about it-no judge nor district attorney . Moreover,even attorney who are officer of court, can lie under penalty of perjury without any consequences. We tried to submit concern about it to Bar association, made motion to court and they all did not find the basic in the lies for attorney disqualification. Though Bar association's ethical codes for attorneys said that even half truth is misconduct.. Thus I was shocked how judicial system works they take our taxes, take the filling fee but did not bother even to read papers- this was my inspiration. And I decided what i will try to do something to change it. it looks like that only people can change it. Because inside the system I do not see any willingness to change this practice of unethical behavior. And though in such small cases as my litigation it could not do big damage, but in bigger cases it can be dramatic. For the purpose to achieve awareness of the public I created the discussion group for self represented litigants who are damaged more by unethical judicial system. After the group will grow I'll try to start crowdfunding effort to help people to get justice and to stop unethical conduct of officers of the court.

How to have sex the 17th Century w ay-Contents of Britain's first sex guide REVEALED

'Aritstoteles Master-Piece' - dubbed the dirtiest book of the time when published in 1684 - was sold secretly from under the counters of bookshops for centuries. The original 'lover's guide', it contains a bizarre mix of superstition and sex facts, about everything from the "actions of the genitals" to the "benefits of marriage". One chapter, entitled 'A word of advice to both sexes at the time of copulation', advises men to "creep in by little and little" to get their wives into bed. "When the husband cometh into his wives chamber, he must entertain her with all kind of dalliance, wanton behaviour, and allurements to venery," it begins.READ MORE -http://www.express.co.uk/news/history/641140/Sex-17th-Century-Britain-first-sex-guide-revealed-history-uk

Vanishing wreck, Westward Ho!

The vanishing wreck on Westward Ho! beachEvery few years the shifting sands of Westward Ho! beach reveal the remains of a wooden ship which has been seen intermittently since at least the mid 19th century, when it was described as “a very old wreck”.
The oak-framed ship lies parallel to the pebble ridge, about 650 metres to the seaward side.  It is around 25 metres long and 7.6 metres wide with semicircular bows (at the north end) and a more oval stern.  The planking is joined to the frames by trunnels (wooden nails, which swelled as they absorbed water).  Trunnels were used in shipbuilding from prehistoric times until the late 18th century.=READ MORE =https://new.devon.gov.uk/historicenvironment/explore-devons-heritage/vanishing-wreck-westward-ho/

Scientists discover one of human's earliest ancestors - and it's a worm named after a doughnut

Scientists have found one of human's earliest ancestors 12,000 feet deep under the ocean - a weird pink worm named after a doughnut. The four-inch (10 cm) long Xenoturbella churro - named for its resemblance to the popular fried-dough pastry - is one of four species discovered 1,700 metre deep in the Gulf of California. Previously Xenoturbeklla was only known from a single species found in the North Atlantic, puzzling biologists for almost six decades. Now expeditions half a world away by scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at California University in San Diego, the Western Australia Museum and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have helped properly=READ MORE=http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/scientists-discover-one-humans-earliest-7303384

Lord Lucan, who went missing in 1974, has been declared dead by the High CourtThe only son of missing peer Lord Lucan has consoled the son of the nanny his father murdered in 1974 - saying they 'both lost parents' that night.
Lord George Bingham has finally been granted a death certificate 42 years after his father vanished following the murder of Sandra Rivett, nanny to Lord Lucan's three children.
He applied for the certificate under the Presumption of Death Act, which came into effect in 2014, so he can inherit the title as 8th Earl.
Lord Lucan disappeared after Ms Rivett was found murdered at the family home at 46 Lower Belgrave Street in central London on November 7, 1974. His disappearance has come to be one of the greatest mysteries of the past 50 years, attracting an endless series of conspiracy theories

Eagle-eyed: Dutch police to train birds to take down unauthorised drones

As the use of drones increasingly worries everyone from firefighters and air traffic control to law enforcement, Netherlands’ national police have aligned themselves with a group that hates flying robots on principle: the bald eagle. Dutch police have joined forces with Guard From Above, a raptor-training security firm based in the Hague, to keep wayward drones from causing trouble by snatching them out of the sky. Guard From Above’s chief executive officer Sjoerd Hoogendoorn described the project in a press release as “a low-tech solution for a high-tech problem”. He and the company’s chief operating officer, Ben de Keijzer, train birds of prey to catch unauthorised unmanned vehicles – Hoogendoorn’s background is in private security, de Keijzer’s is in bird-handling and training.READ MORE =http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/feb/01/dutch-netherlands-police-birds-unauthorized-drones

Cavemen dined on TORTOISE 400,000 years ago, new research reveals

Roast tortoise was on the menu for cavemen 400,000 years ago, according to new research. Tortoises were a staple of early Paleolithic people's diets, remains dug up in an ancient cave have revealed.  they formed a staple part of early Paleolithic people's diets . It had been thought they mostly ate large game and vegetables with turtle, now protected under EU law, off the menu even then. Now archaelogists have found specimens of the creature all over Quesem Cave, near Tel Aviv, Israel, and at different levels showing they were eaten throughout 200,000 years of human habitation. The cave was only unearthed in 2001 and excavations are continuing to shed new light on our primitive ancestors' lifestyle.=READ MORE -http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/technology-science/cavemen-dined-tortoise-400000-years-7294540

Black tarantula named after Johnny Cash

A new species of black tarantula that lives near Folsom Prison, California, has been named after Johnny Cash.
The famously black-clad country singer wrote a song about the prison, and also played a historic series of concerts for inmates there in the 1960s.
Aphonopelma johnnycashi is among 14 new tarantula species from the southern US which have been described by biologists in the journal ZooKeys.
Their study completely rewrites the family tree of the Aphonopelma genus.
One of dozens of tarantula genera, this group was previously considered to include more than 50 separate species.
As part of his PhD research at Auburn University in Alabama, Chris Hamilton carefully whittled that down to 29. He eliminated a lot of double-counting, but also defined 14 species that were entirely new to science.
"We really tried to clean the taxonomy up," said Dr Hamilton, now a postdoctoral researcher at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
"The only way we could do that was by looking at over 3,000 specimens, both from the wild and from natural history collections.
"A lot of previous names got eliminated. But there were 14 that were genuinely unique and new."=READ BBC LINK=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35473946

Some of you know that Bernd Heinrich has spent many winters studying ravens and their behavior. This month, Heinrich and his colleague, Thomas Bugnyar, published an article inScientific American that explores the intelligence of ravens. In this article, they investigate the question; do the birds consciously contemplate alternative behaviors and choose the most appropriate ones, or are they merely relying on instinct or learning to perform specific actions by rote?=READ MORE =http://scienceblogs.com/grrlscientist/2007/04/09/just-how-smart-are-ravens/

Mouse gets caught in 155-year-old trap in Reading museum

155-year-old trap catches mouse A 155-year-old Victorian mouse trap on display at a museum sprung into action again to claim its latest victim.
Ollie Douglas, assistant curator at the Museum of English Rural Life, was baffled when he discovered the dead mouse in the trap, which was in a cabinet.
He said the rodent could have entered the trap to make a nest, but got stuck inside.
The trap is one of hundreds kept at the museum.
Mr Douglas said: "We think that the mouse chewed at the label and got interested in chewing at the string attached to the label."
