Scientists Discover Cute Huge Eyed Pink Octopus

A marine biology researcher in California has the difficult task of deciding on a name to encapsulate the cuteness of an unclassified octopus with puppy dog eyes.

The animal, which has small wing-like fins on its head, has garnered so many accolades for being ‘adorable’ that the adjective may become its official title.

Stephanie Bush, a postdoctoral researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, said that she is considering the scientific name Opisthotheusis Adorabilis for a species currently only known as the flapjack octopus.

She told Science Friday that she is looking for a name for the octopus, which lives in the deep sea at depths of up to 1,476ft (450m), to help differentiate it from other species of the cephalopod.

The unnamed mollusk has a gelatinous body of about 7inches (18cm) in diameter that it spreads wide to ‘parachute’ through stretches of dimly lit water.

Its eight legs joined together by a large web that resembles an umbrella.

They share similarities with ‘dumbo octopuses’ and other similar creatures that inspired the pink Octopus character Pearl in Finding Nemo.

Several of the octopuses, which are found in the Monterey Bay, were captured and allowed to live at the local aquarium.

Aquarium scientists recreated the environment found hundreds of meters below the sea by using red light that quickly dissipates so the Adorabilis can’t see it.

The tank is also set to a very cold temperature to mimic natural conditions.

One of the captured animals was comfortable in the tank and left eggs that are now being incubated.

Researchers believe that the eggs may take three years before hatching out a batch of baby Opisthotheusis Adorabilis.

The new discovery joins other species of ‘flapjack octopuses’ which come in different sizes, shapes and degrees of adorability.

They include Opisthoteuthis californiana, Opisthoteuthis albatrossi and the so-called Dumbo octopus.

Ever wonder why Swiss cheese has holes? Swiss cheese hole mystery finally solved

Scientists have finally solved a mystery that has baffled them for a century – why does Swiss cheese have holes?

Contrary to what cartoons have suggested over the years, the holes are not made by mice eating their way through the cheese.

Swiss laboratory says they are created by flecks of hay. These “microscopically small hay particles” get into the milk and create holes as the liquid matures into cheese.

Agroscope, a government agricultural institute, said “microscopically small hay particles” would fall in to buckets collecting milk, and develop into bigger holes as the cheese matures.

The process affects only some Swiss cheeses, such as Emmental and Appenzell.

The discovery also solves another riddle – why the famous holes in cheeses like Emmentaler or Appenzeller have been getting smaller or disappearing completely over the last 15 years.

Scientists reached their conclusions after adding small amounts of hay dust to milk and making it into cheese over 130 days. The research has not been peer reviewed.

 

Will Eating Sand Help You Live Longer? Sudama Devi, The 92 Year Old Indian Woman Who’s Daily Meal Is SAND

A 92-year-old Indian woman who admitted she eats a kilogram of sand every day has amazed doctors with her perfect health.

Sudama Devi first ate sand for a bet with friends when she was aged just ten.

But the mother-of-four, from Kajri Noorpur, became addicted to the grit and now eats four plates of it every day.

She claims the unusual habit, which saw her eat only sand for dinner following her wedding to husband Krishan Kumar, is the reason she has never had to visit a doctor or be hungry.

Mrs Devi said: ‘I eat sand daily, about one kilogram and three or four times in a day.

‘My economic condition is not good but I am fond of eating a good and healthy diet. I eat sand but it is not like a food.’

She added that the sand was so good when she tried it as a child she soon tied it in to her routine diet.

The mother-of-four mixes the sand with water in a glass before drinking it

She also eats it directly from a metal plate

She said: ‘I had seven sons and three daughters but now I have only three sons and one daughter alive. No one eats sand.

‘Before marriage my father and my brother arranged sand for me and after marriage my husband Krishan Kumar arranged sand for me.

‘When I came first time (sic) in my husband’s home everybody felt surprised to see that a bride eats sand.’

Although Mrs Devi, perched on a wicker bench (above), has been eating the substance for decades, she doesn't class sand as 'food'

Unusual Discovery – Man From England Finds Grave Filled With Artifacts From The Roman-era

A man in England went exploring with a metal detector and made the discovery of a lifetime: an exquisitely preserved Roman-era grave filled with artifacts, including bronze jugs, mosaic glassware, coins and hobnails from a pair of shoes, all dating to about A.D. 200.

 The grave likely belonged to a wealthy individual, said Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews, the archaeology and outreach officer for the North Hertfordshire District Council. Once Fitzpatrick-Matthews and his colleagues located the grave, they also found evidence of a nearby building, likely a shrine or temple, attached to a villa.

The man with the metal detector, Phil Kirk, found the grave in a field in Kelshall, a small village located between London and Cambridge. He had once found a Roman coin in the same field, and had a hunch that there were more Roman artifacts nearby, Fitzpatrick-Matthews said.

In October 2014, Kirk hit the jackpot. His metal detector led him to a buried bronze jug that stood roughly 10 inches (25 centimeters) tall. Next, he pulled out a bronze patera (a dish used for pouring wine or blood libations) and two other jugs.

Elated with what he had found, Kirk contacted local experts and told them about the findings. They returned to the spot later that month and in November and found even more artifacts: a bronze pin, an iron lamp, glassware and bottles of different shapes, including octagonal, hexagonal, rectangular and square, Fitzpatrick-Matthews said.

The hexagonal bottle held an unusual and macabre surprise.

“It quickly became apparent that the large hexagonal bottle was stuffed full with cremated bone,” said Fitzpatrick-Matthews, who hadn’t realized they were digging into a grave. “Suddenly, that explained everything. We were looking at a wealthy burial.”

The entire grave measures about 6.2 feet by 5.2 feet (1.9 meters by 1.6 meters), and contains a plethora of Roman artifacts. They found hobnails, which are small iron nails used on the soles of leather sandals. The sandals had straps that people would tie around their legs, but the sandals must have decayed over the ages. Only the hobnails remained.

“The idea of providing footwear in a Roman graveis that the journey to the underworld, taken by the soul after death, is taken on foot to the River Styx, where you’re ferried across,” Fitzpatrick-Matthews told Live Science. “It’s a walking journey, so you need a pair of footwear. Anybody who could afford it was buried with their best sandals.”

Grave date

The archaeologists also found mosaic glass plates, possibly from Egypt or western Europe; a small piece of lava; and the remains of a wooden box containing two glass cups. A silver coin, called a denarius, sat inside the box and likely slowed the wood’s decomposition, Fitzpatrick-Matthews said. The coin features Emperor Trajan, who ruled Rome from A.D. 98 to A.D. 117.

A second coin helped them date the grave. The worn bronze coin sat inside the cremation urn. It likely served as payment for Charon, the man thought to ferry people across the River Styx, Fitzpatrick-Matthews said. Emperor Marcus Aurelius issued the coin in the A.D. 170s, he said.

“You never find these things in Roman burials, except in this one,” Fitzpatrick-Matthews said. “The fact that it’s worn means it was a good 20 to 30 years old by the time it got into the ground, which gives us a really nice date for the burial ground — about 200.”

The glass mosaic dishes also date to about A.D. 200, and a square bottle, with the initials IAS on its bottom, has a twin at a Roman fort in Scotland that also dates to about A.D. 200, Fitzpatrick-Matthews said.

“Everything is absolutely perfect, except for this wretched coin of Trajan,” which is about 100 years younger than the other artifacts, he said. “Who knows what it’s doing there. It may have been completely accidental, and have fallen into the box without anybody really noticing.”

Field archaeology

The entire grave was lined with flint, which partly smashed the artifacts under its weight, but also preserved the burial. The farmer who owns the field recalled his family noticing that area, and how the plow was unable to dig into the earth there.

The newly discovered grave fits with other clues of an earlier civilization on the farmer’s property. In 1954, the farmer’s family found Roman pottery in the field and donated it to a local museum.

In 2013, a circular hole about 23 feet (7 m) deep suddenly appeared in the field. Fitzpatrick-Matthews remembers looking at the hole, about 3.2 feet (1 m) in diameter, and realizing that it was the remains of a Roman well.

Now, having found the grave, the group decided to look for more clues. They found postholes, suggesting the grave neighbored a building, probably a shrine or a temple, which was attached to a villa.

“Whoever had this burial was quite clearly extremely wealthy. They’ve been buried with the second-century equivalent of bling,” Fitzpatrick-Matthews said, referring to the lavish artifacts.

The field is about 2.5 miles (4 km) from the nearest Roman town. It’s possible the buried individual worked in the town, made a lot of money and built an estate out in the country, Fitzpatrick-Matthews said.

He plans to send several bone samples from the urn to an expert, who will attempt to determine the individual’s age and sex.

The archaeological findings belong to Kirk and the farmer, but Fitzpatrick-Matthews hopes to acquire funds to buy, preserve and display the artifacts in a local museum, he said.

“Once you take ancient metalwork out of the ground, it starts to degrade,” he said. “We need to stabilize it again. That’s done with chemical treatments.”

Archaeologists Discover Ancient Dildo From The 18th Century

A 250 year old sex toy was found by archaeologists during a dig of an ancient toilet in Poland.

It was an 8 inch leather dildo with a wooden head. This was discovered during an excavation at an old school of swordsmanship in the coastal city of Gdansk.

A spokesman for the Regional Office for the Protection of Monuments in Gdansk, said:

‘It was found in the latrine and dates back to the second half of the 18th century.

The object is quite thick and rather large, made of leather and filled with bristles, and has a wooden tip that has preserved in excellent condition. It was probably dropped by someone in the toilet.

Archaeologists at the site earlier discovered old swords leading them to suspect that the place was once a school of swordsmanship.

The artifact has now been taken away for preservation work.

Dildos have been found in some form throughout history, with Upper Paleolithic artifacts previously discovered being said to be likely used for sexual pleasure.

For thousands of years, phallic objects have been used symbolically as a means to boost fertility and ward off evil spirits but their use as sexual aids has a long history, too.

A 28,000 year old phallus recently found in Germany is quoted as being the oldest known ‘sex toy’ ever found.

While phallus’s made from stone, wood, leather and even camel dung have all be found during excavations, or referenced throughout historical text and images.

And an Austrian museum even has the world’s oldest condom on display together with four other condom fragments dated from around 1650.

These were found in a toilet at Dudley Castle in England.

New Chinese One Persona Transportation Scooter

Chinese transportation robotics firm  Ninebot  has acquired U.S. rival Segway Inc, the company behind the self-balancing scooter that became a technological marvel when it was launched in the early 2000s but whose hype then faded.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, but Ninebot Chief Executive Gao Lufeng said at a press briefing in Beijing that Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi Inc and venture capital firm Sequoia Capital China, among others, had invested $80 million into Ninebot to help finance the acquisition.

New backers of Ninebot, which began producing scooters two years ago as a crowdfunded project, also include Xiaomi Chief Executive Lei Jun’s personal private equity fund Shunwei, Gao said.

The acquisition comes about half a year after Segway named Ninebot in a patent infringement complaint in September 2014.

Gao did not address the dispute on Wednesday but told reporters the combined company would hold a significant lead in market share as well as a vast portfolio of over 400 critical patents. The companies would operate as separate brands, he said.

Ninebot, which has several self-balancing scooter models including one without handles, known as the “One”, will now have “the most comprehensive lineup of products in the industry”, Gao said.

Ninebot’s high-profile backers, Sequoia Capital China partner Neil Shen and Xiaomi CEO Lei, both struck a nationalistic note in remarks toasting the deal.

“I have long thought Chinese companies should have more courage,” said Shen, one of China’s most prominent tech investors. “This acquisition is a display of Chinese self-confidence.”

The acquisition caps a 14-year independent run for Bedford, New Hampshire-based Segway, which never lived up to the initial hype in 2001, when inventor Dean Kamen unveiled to the American public a scooter that could be driven simply by shifting one’s weight and turned it into a pop culture icon.

Kamen vowed on television the Segway would revolutionize transportation much like the automobile, but it became widely regarded as a mainstream sales failure despite some law enforcement and industrial uses.

Lei, one of China’s richest men, showed off riding a Ninebot for photographers on Wednesday and explained that he invested in the company because he always found self-balancing vehicles the best “toys for adults”.

When prompted by an event MC, Lei added that Xiaomi’s investment in Ninebot made sense for the smartphone company because Xiaomi’s strategy was to support smart hardware companies everywhere and build a device ecosystem around its smartphones.
