Cameron Dreyer's insight:

I am getting more and more scared about Sochi. I just have this feeling something bad is going to happen. Another disaster. And now there are bombs in toothpaste tubes. Terrorrists seem like they are doing whatever they can to ruin the Olympics.

Cameron Dreyer's insight:

This is really unusual. Nowadays, you never see African American people with naturally blue eyes. But it might have been a common thing back in that time period. The scientists will have to study other remains from that time period and see if they find any other examples.

Discovery of water vapour on dwarf planet Ceres could give clues to the origins of life on Earth

Discovery of water vapour on dwarf planet Ceres could give clues to the origins of life on Earth | World News | Scoop.it
Twin plumes of water vapour have begun gushing from the dwarf planet Ceres, confirming astronomers’ previous suspicions that it contains abundant water in the form of geysers or ice volcanoes.

Via David Simpson
Cameron Dreyer's insight:

Water vapor has been found on the dwarf planet Ceres. I think this is really really cool because it could possibly mean there if life elsewhere in the universe. It could also possibly be a place that humans could live. Knowing this about something so close makes me wonder what lies in the full extent of the universe. To quote one of my favorite movies "If we were the only ones in the universe, that sure would be an awful waste of space." -Contact

Cameron Dreyer's insight:

A guillotine that was used to kill two of Hitler's enemies from the  White Rose resistance group was found. Officials are trying to decide whether it should be displayed or not. Personally, I think it should. I think it was a big part of history and they would be reconizing and honoring the resistance against Hitler by putting it on display.

A child's right to die?

A child's right to die? | World News | Scoop.it
Belgium legalised the right to euthanasia for adults in 2002. Now the Senate has voted to extend the law to terminally ill children.

Cameron Dreyer's insight:

This article focuses on Belgium's recent decision to allow euthanasia in children. This is a very dark topic, but an important one in the news. I'm not exactly sure about how I feel about this. In general, I don't think anyone should have to live in such misery when they're going to die anyways.

Seven National Park workers were at the World War II Memorial early Wednesday morning to reinforce the barricades blocking visitors from the monument.

Cameron Dreyer's insight:

I wonder why it was closed off. I think the managers of the company should have at least given the workers a reason for closing it off. And it really shows you how important memorials are to veterans that they breached the gates just to see it. I wonder if they will open it again soon.

This is really creepy. First of all, I can't imagine living with that many snakes. i don't know who would want to do that. Secondly, while snakes are creepy, they are still animals and living with that many under one roof is horrible and cruel. This man was probably a little crazy.

Cameron Dreyer's insight:

This article talks about a new discovery about great white sharks. Before, great whites were thought to die of old age at around 20 years old, but a recent discovery found that their lifespan is more like humans, at around 70 years old. This is really important for conservation efforts and saving great whites. I think this is great that they discovered this, and it's really cool to think that we as a society are still discovering spectacular things.

Blonde Girls And Roma Families: The Controversy Looks Stupider ... | World News | Scoop.it
The discovery of Maria earlier this month prompted a Europe-wide freak-out about the possibility that Roma — gypsy communities who descended from Indian nomads and are some of the continent's most persecuted minorities — were involved ...
Cameron Dreyer's insight:

A 4-year-old girl named Maria was found living with a Roma (gypsy) family earlier this month in Greece. Thsi would be completely normal, except for the fact that the girl is blonde with blue eyes and almost all Roma people have dark hair and dark eyes. The family she was found living with gave many conflicting stories about how they got her, as it was obvious she could not be their own child. Many people feared she had been kidnapped and was part of child trafficking. But recently, DNA tests found Maria's parents in Bulgaria who claimed that they had to leave her in Greece after traveling there and not being able to bring her back to  Bulgaria. Authorities are still unclear about whether this is the truth or not.

Via SustainOurEarth
Cameron Dreyer's insight:

Researchers at MIT have discovered water droplets can actually jump off of surfaces as opposed to just sliding off of them because of gravity. When two water droplets combine, the energy causes them to   jump up.  Researchers think they can harness this energy to create new power. When I hear something like this, it makes me wonder just what else is out there for us to discover.
