#Britain’s #bizarre #attractions
The British are known to celebrate the eccentric and the quirky — even when it comes to their visitor attractions. Amid the island nation’s varied countryside, there are places that celebrate bubble cars, witchcraft, cuckoo clocks, paperweights and a teetotal pub.

One thing physics has taught us is that events at the smallest possible scales can have consequences of cosmic proportions. And, in turn, studying some of the universe’s most spectacular astrophysical phenomenon can reveal a lot about physics at its most elementary level. The latest example of this has been proposed by a team of researchers in Europe – they say that studying the contours of...

#Upgrading #the #war
In a secluded section of Raleigh, North Carolina live 16 carefully selected recruits for a high-priority Pentagon project that could play a life or death role in Afghanistan. None of them have any previous military experience, so their training is necessarily disciplined – if they get through the programme their work could pave the way for others, like them, who will be called on to make...
#Long #hot #summer
A summer of droughts and extreme temperatures across the world threaten the planet’s most vulnerable people, as food prices rise. A new report from the World Bank has revealed global food prices soared by 10% in July, with staples such as maize and soybean increasing by 25% to an all-time high. The drought-hit United States — the world’s largest exporter of grains such as maize — is facing the...
#Active #pensioners #+6Anni
Being active and living a healthy lifestyle into your seventies can make a huge difference to your life expectancy, a Swedish study suggests. Academics at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute analysed the lifestyles of 1,810 people over 75. The findings, on the British Medical Journal website, said men with the healthiest lifestyles lived six years longer, women had five extra years. Experts said it...
I have to admit that, though I did not make it public, I was personally opposed to my Aunty’s marriage plans. My father, my brothers and their wives shared my feelings. It simply wasn’t a good match in our view. Ever since we were small we’d looked forward to seeing Aunty find a husband. Her relationship with Wang Xiaoti had brought immense glory to the family, only to end ingloriously. Yang Lin...
For the second time in as many days, an unspecified threat forced a Chinese airline to divert a flight, raising public concern about aviation safety in one of the world’s fastest-growing air travel markets. A Shenzhen Airlines flight en route to southern boomtown Shenzhen from Xiangyang — a medium-sized city in central Hubei Province — was diverted Thursday night to the provincial capital, Wuhan,...
From a finger bone, scientists have reconstructed the genetic world of an entire population of extinct human relatives called Denisovans. But questions still abound about who exactly they were. They weren’t quite like modern humans or Neanderthals, but some other group entirely. Everything we know about the Denisovans is based on a finger bone and two teeth. Those small remnants, found in a cave...
For the Chinese, this is ‘Ghost Month’, a time when they are scared to leave their houses after dark. They believe the doors to the afterworld are thrown open and ghosts roam the land of the living, settling old scores or just scaring people. You won’t catch a superstitious Chinese person near the water, where, it’s thought, spirits are waiting to drag them under. Whistling is also a bad idea....
#World’s #hotel #rates #rising
Corporate hotel rates – those that businesses pay for rooms — have been rising around the globe, especially in Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and North America, as an increasing amount of executive travellers get on the road to ply their wares, meet clients and do business face-to-face. An August report by the Hogg Robinson Group, a corporate travel company, shows that in 50 of the world’s...
