  1. Tesla chief Elon Musk was recently trending for becoming the world's richest person. It's indeed a prestigious title to claim from Jeff Bezos, who held the title for more than three years. It's surprising to see how much Elon Musk has achieved despite all the hardships that his company was facing. Well, let's just say that Elon Musk's reign as the world's richest person was brief because Jeff Bezos has reclaimed it. This happened after Tesla Inc. shares slid 2.4% on Tuesday, wiping $4.6 billion from Musk's fortune. It knocked him down from the top spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index ranking.

  5. It’s pretty much clear by now that the year 2020 is nothing less than bizarre and the new normal is to expect the unexpected. It also seems like some people have lost their sanity this year as well. Case in point, a weird-ass prank on YouTube which actually ended up evoking people’s interest for real. © Medium “But to our surprise when we uploaded this thing on to Airbnb, we had an insane amount of interest for people to come and stay within our establishment." Meanwhile, Rhys Simmons, co-founder of Passion Squad, added that he and his pals were not pleased with the price of their last Airbnb stay. So, they decided to make one of their own. "This was an insane accomplishment. To create the worst Airbnb in the world and then get a crazy amount of requests to stay is something that we will never forget. You never know, we may have to open this thing up for full-time business!" Simmons said. Would you actually pay to live someplace like this? View the full article

  7. A 6,000-year-old skull found in Papua New Guinea is likely the world's oldest-known tsunami victim A 6,000-year-old skull found in Papua New Guinea is likely the world's oldest-known tsunami victim, experts said Thursday after a new analysis of the area it was found in. The partially preserved Aitape Skull was discovered in 1929 by Australian geologist Paul Hossfeld, 12 kilometres (seven miles) inland from the northern coast of the Pacific nation. It was long thought to belong to Homo erectus (upright man), an extinct species thought to be an ancestor of the modern human that died out some 140,000 years ago. But more recent radiocarbon dating estimated it was closer to 6,000 years old, making it a member of our own species -- Homo sapiens. At that time, sea levels were higher and the area would have been near the coast. An international team led by the University of New South Wales returned to the site to collect the same geological deposits observed by Hossfeld. Back in the lab, they studied details of the sediment including its grain size and geochemical composition, which can help identify a tsunami inundation. They also identified a range of microscopic organisms from the ocean in the sediment, similar to those found in soil after a devastating tsunami hit the region in 1998. "We have discovered that the place where the Aitape Skull was unearthed was a coastal lagoon that was inundated by a large tsunami about 6,000 years ago," said study author and UNSW scientist James Goff. "It was similar to the one that struck nearby with such devastating effect in 1998, killing more than 2,000 people. "We conclude that this person who died there so long ago is probably the oldest-known tsunami victim in the world." The conclusions, aided by researchers from the United States, France, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, are published in the journal PLOS ONE. Massive inundation Goff, a world authority on tsunamis, said while the bones of the skull had been well-studied previously, little attention had been paid to the sediments where they were unearthed. "The geological similarities between these sediments and the sediments laid down during the 1998 tsunami made us realise that human populations in this area have been affected by these massive inundations for thousands of years," he said. "After considering a range of possible scenarios, we believe that, on the balance of the evidence, the individual was either killed directly in the tsunami, or was buried just before it hit and the remains were redeposited." Following the 1998 tsunami, which penetrated up to five kilometres inland, attempts to retrieve victims were called off after a week because crocodiles were feeding on the corpses, leading to their dismemberment. This may also explain why the skull of the person who died 6,000 years ago was found on its own, without any other bones, the researchers said. World attention has been drawn to the devastating impact of tsunamis in recent decades, particularly following those in Indonesia in 2004 and Japan in 2011, which killed about 230,000 and 16,000 people respectively. But research in the Pacific has shown that throughout history and prehistory, the region has seen repeated catastrophic tsunamis that have caused death, abandonment of settlements, breakdown of trading routes and even war, the study said. "This work reinforces a growing recognition that tsunamis have had a significant influence on coastal populations throughout Pacific prehistory and doubtless elsewhere as well," said study co-author Darren Curnoe, also from UNSW.
  8. Onlookers peer through windows shortly after the first ever commercial flight landed at St Helena airport near Jamestown, October 14, 2017-Reuters JAMESTOWN: One of humanity?s most isolated outposts joined the 21st century on Saturday when the British island of St. Helena, home to ?the world?s most useless airport?, welcomed its first commercial flight. As the inaugural plane from Johannesburg touched down on the forbidding volcanic outcrop in the middle of the south Atlantic, the travel and history buffs on board clapped and cheered. ?I?ve never felt so emotional in all my life,? said Libby Weir-Breen, a British travel operator who has been bringing tourists to the island, 1,200 miles (1,900 km) west of the African nation of Angola, for the last 12 years. She had flown in specially from Scotland to be on the plane, and dabbed away tears as it touched down on the spectacular cliff-side runway. ?I never thought I?d see this day,? she said. The 4,500 people living on St. Helena, a British colony since 1658 - most famous as the windswept outpost where French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte breathed his last - might also be forgiven for thinking the day would never come. There has been talk of building an airport on St. Helena since the 1930s. The best site ? one of the few flat spaces on the notoriously craggy island ? was ruled out because of a nearby breeding ground for the wirebird, an endangered species of plover. An airport at the new site, on top of a valley filled in with 8 million cubic metres of rock, suffered numerous setbacks and delays as costs ballooned to 285 million pounds, to the horror of the British government. The runway and terminal were completed in 2016 but the official opening was pushed back another year after test flights were buffeted by wicked cross-winds, making it unsafe for large aircraft to use. A fire truck sprays water over the first ever commercial flight to land at St Helena airport near Jamestown, October 14, 2017. REUTERS/Ed Cropley With Britain mired in financial austerity, the London media were quick to condemn it as a white elephant, or ?the world?s most useless airport?, with a price tag of more than 60,000 pounds for every Saint, as the island?s residents are known. Priceless Before the opening of the airport, which will receive weekly flights to and from the South African commercial capital, the only way to St. Helena was a five-night voyage from Cape Town aboard the RMS St. Helena, a British postal ship. With the risk of wind-shear limiting the size of planes and numbers of passengers ? Saturday?s flight had room for 100 but only 68 on board due to weight restrictions ? the hoped-for tourist boom is unlikely to materialise. Hotel capacity has jumped in the last few years from just a few dozen rooms to more than 100, but, with a maximum of 3,500 visitors a year, the island is unlikely to be weaned off the 53 million pounds it receives in aid every year from London. Besides Napoleon?s old house, Longwood, and a cemetery holding some of the 6,000 Afrikaner prisoners sent there by the British during the Anglo-Boer wars in South Africa, St. Helena offers scuba diving and walking in pristine natural wildernesses. Governor Lisa Phillips dismissed the critics and said that even before it accepted its first commercial flight, the airport had proved its worth in the last 18 months by enabling several life-saving emergency medical evacuations, including a newborn child. ?I?ve seen the headlines about the world?s most useless airport, but for St. Helenans this has already been the most useful airport,? she told reporters after greeting them on the tarmac. ?It?s priceless.?
  9. Dutch officials on Monday opened what is being billed as one of the world's largest offshore wind farms, with 150 turbines spinning in action far out in the North Sea. Over the next 15 years, the Gemini windpark, which lies some 85 kilometres (53 miles) off the northern coast of The Netherlands, will meet the energy needs of about 1.5 million people. At full winds the windpark has a generating capacity of some 600 megawatts, and will help supply some 785,000 Dutch households with renewable energy, the company said. "We are now officially in the operational stage," the company's managing director Matthias Haag told AFP, celebrating the completion of a project first conceived in 2010. The 2.8-billion-euro ($3 billion) project is a collaboration between the Canadian independent renewable energy company Northland Power, wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Wind Power, Dutch maritime contractor Van Oord and waste processing company HVC. It has been "quite a complex" undertaking, Haag said, "particularly as this windpark lies relatively far offshore... so it took quite a lot of logistics". Gemini will contribute about 13 percent of the country's total renewable energy supply, and about 25 percent of its wind power, he added. It will also help reduce emissions of carbon-dioxide emissions, among the so-called greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, by 1.25 million tons, the company says. The Netherlands remains dependant on fossil fuels which still make up about 95 percent of its energy supply, according to a 2016 report from the ministry of economics affairs. But the Dutch government has committed to ensuring that some 14 percent of its energy comes from renewable sources such as wind and solar power by 2020, and 16 percent by 2023, with the aim of being a carbon neutral by 2050. Gemini "is seen as a stepping stone" in The Netherlands, and has "shown that a very large project can be built on time, and in a very safe environment," Haag added.
