Amelia Earhart's Resting Place

If you've never heard of Amelia Earhart's, then you probably didn't know the fact that she was the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

 

Earhart's mystery started when both Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan disappeared while trying to fly around the world. Signals were sent from Earhart's plane where she tried to find and confirm the location of Howland Island, which located at the atoll near the central of Pacific Ocean. 

There are few theories suggesting Earhart's disappearance and the most likely theory is The Nikumaroro Hypothesis. In this theory, Earhart landed on Nikumaroro Island, survived for sometimes and died on the very same island. She is said to be survived because of several hundreds radio signals sent from the plane, indicating that the plane was on land when the signal was sent. Apparently, the Electra (the plane's name) was swept away by Nikumaroro's strong waves, leaving no visible trace of the plane.

But now, researchers at the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery are attempting to verify the DNA evidence that will prove this theory when a skull was found by a researcher named Gallagher. The skull, believed to be from females with European descendant, together with 20th century makeup, a compact mirror and few other artifacts were found on Nikumaroro Island in 2007.

There are few speculations on how Earhart's died from injury, infection, eating toxic fish or simply dehydration. Nevertheless, now we can rest assured knowing that the mystery of the disappearance of world famous aviator is solved.

Vending Machine for Cash

With the world of technology advancing everyday, we now can experience a whole new environment. But this advancement has its own cost, most obvious is the effect towards nature. But thanks to ecoATM, now we can recycle electronic products (cellphones and digital music players) in return for cash. 


What ecoATM developed was a kiosk or a vending machine that allows you to sort of trade in your phone for cash. In normal vending machine, you will put your money in return for goods but in this vending machine, you will need to put your unwanted cellphones in return for cash. 


With this machine in every mall in town, definitely unused electronic products can be managed in a more proper manner without damaging the mother nature. I think so far the machine only accept electronic items that can be used, which means broken or damaged product aren't acceptable. Nevertheless, it is without a doubt a wonderful tool for someone who hates his Iphone and wanted some cash to buy Blackberry. Watch the video below to see how the machine works.

Albino-like Penguin

From National Geographic, tourists found an albino-like penguin which is believed to be the case of rare genetic mutation. 


Penguin expert, P. Dee Boersma said the bird actually suffers from isabellinism, a genetic condition that dilutes pigment in penguins' feathers resulting in lightening of bird's dark color, turning it into pale brown or "blonde" penguin.

This genetic condition may affect the penguins' survival as penguins often used their black back in order to camouflage themselves from predator and prey, though no study has yet been done on this subject matter.

In case if you don't know how original penguins look like.
