Underwater Forensics, learn how it is done.

discover how a team of scientists uncover the facts about a shipwreck;
describe the roles of scientists and technicians on an underwater forensics team;
research a shipwreck; and
demonstrate understanding of why such incidents occur.

Nova ray underwater ROV

The winged Nova Ray® is a compact, lightweight inspection class Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) designed to operate in strong currents and harsh environments. The patented arcuate (bow-shaped) wing provides stability and maneuverability for mission critical underwater projects. Its proven wing design, proprietary technology and convenient modularity deliver effective survey, inspection and protection of critical infrastructures. Nova Ray, Inc. delivers a multi-function platform on all portable ROV models. The winged unit can also be towed (UTV) up to nine knots as a forward looking or side scan sonar system for large area search sweeps. Upon locating a target, the operator can 'fly' the unit (ROV) using its own thruster power for close up target ID and inspection with the video cameras.

Solar generator you can build..

The completed system works like this. A solar collector gathers sunlight and focuses it on a heat exchanger filled with water. The water boils and creates steam which spins the turbine. The turbine, coupled to the alternator, produces electrical power. This raw power is then regulated using a switching regulator circuit to produce a high current power source. This is DC, so a user would have to convert this to AC power to run household appliances.

Floods..Stockton, California. ??

ST. LOUIS - Years before Hurricane Katrina hit, engineers knew that New Orleans was the
most vulnerable spot in the country for flood damage — and some even predicted almost exactly how the tragedy would unfold.
Now the experts say California's Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta presents the next cause for concern. "The Sacramento area is perhaps, after New Orleans, the scariest spot in the country," said Nicholas Pinter, a geologist at Southern Illinois University who studies river flood risks.

Mars pictures reveal frozen sea

A huge, frozen sea lies just below the surface of Mars, a team of European scientists has announced.

Remember the movie Robinson Curuso on Mars?
We are getting closer every day..
Sure hope we don't find any aliens lurking about :}

anyways here is the real story..

Drilling to center of the earth

Traveling to the center of the Earth is a fanciful concept, but consider the reality: We have so far drilled just 7.5 miles into the Earth's rocky crust, leaving roughly 3,962 more miles to go. The new Japanese research vessel Chikyu won't exactly breach Earth's core, but it will drill to an unprecedented depth, beginning in late 2007 when it embarks on its first scientific mission off the southwestern coast of Japan.

Time Travel,In theory.

In July, theoretical physicist Amos Ori of Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, proposed a provocative new model for a time machine. Unlike previous designs, Ori's version doesn't require exotic wormholes—theoretical tunnels from one point and time in the universe to another. Instead it involves a force, either man-made or natural, to warp a region of spacetime so drastically that lines of time form closed loops. Pilot a spaceship around this course, and you'll circle back to the past.

Electricity from the Ocean

Big ocean swells could one day be as exciting to homeowners as they are to surfers, thanks to an innovative new device that harnesses the power of waves to produce cheap, clean electricity.

Brazil Homicide rate

Homicide is currently the major cause (58%) of early death for Brazilians. A report from the United Nations has revealed that while the country has only 2.8% of the world's population, it is responsible for more than 11% of registered homicides.
According to the IBGE (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics), around 600,000 people were killed in Brazil between 1980 and 2000, an average of 30,000 a year. In comparison, the thirty-year civil war that devastated Angola killed "only" 350,000 people. According to Timothy Cahill, an investigating leader for the Amnesty International, the number of deaths in Brazil falls easily within the U.N. parameters for a situation of civil war.

Info on Abductions...

Killer KidnappersAnd Their Victims..

A child's chances of being abducted by a stranger are rare, and the likelihood that the kidnapping will end in murder are rarer still. There is approximately one child abduction murder for every 10,000 reports of a missing child, according to a report prepared by the Attorney General of Washington state.
This rarity is a major reason why worst-case scenarios get the most attention, with the murders of two California girls, Danielle van Dam and Samantha Runnion, most recently making headlines across the United States. Missing children who have been murdered can also claim as part of their legacy improvements in the ways we keep kids safe and find those who are lost, as in the cases of Adam Walsh and Polly Klaas.

Victim Profile
76 percent of children killed by their abductor are girls
The average age is between 11 and 12 years old
57 percent are victims of opportunity14 percent are chosen because of some physical characteristic
Well over half of all child abductions that lead to murder happen within three blocks of the victim's home.

Profile of A Killer Kidnapper
The average killer of abducted children is 27 years old
85 percent are unmarried
Half are unemployed
51 percent live either alone or with their parents
61 percent have prior arrests for violent crimes
66 percent have a legitimate reason to be in the area where the abduction takes place
