KFC Chicken Sandwich's Balloon Flight to Near-Space Is Delayed
By Calla Cofield, Space.com Staff Writer
June 20, 2017

The launch of a stratospheric balloon carrying a fast-food chicken sandwich to the edge of space has been delayed until Thursday (June 22).

The sandwich's four-day flight is a promotional stunt for Kentucky Fried Chicken, but it will serve as a valuable test for World View Enterprises, the company developing high-altitude balloons for applications ranging from weather monitoring to tourism. This is the first long-duration flight of the company's Stratollite balloon vehicle.

Vancouver Sun

Steering their own canoes: First Nations curate their heritage, history

by Randy Shore

Published on: June 21, 2017 | Last Updated: June 21, 2017 3:30 AM PDT

The Gitga’at culture, its stories and its laws are very much alive thanks to its relative isolation and a made-in-B.C. approach to First Nations studies.

“We still have lots of fluent speakers, we still have a lot of stories, we still have these places intact,” said Spencer Greening, an anthropology graduate student from the Gitga’at First Nation at Hartley Bay. “I imagine that if our village was in the middle of Vancouver, we would have none of this. It wouldn’t even be safe to harvest food.”

Greening is one in a new wave of First Nations academics eager to take over curating their heritage from museums and outside scholars. For Greening, understanding the Gitga’at worldview comes from a sense of place.

“Whenever I can be, I’m out on the land, hunting, fishing and harvesting, and passing that food out to the elders,” he said. “This past week, we were out at a seaweed camp and harvested a couple of seals and halibut. We do shellfish. We do all that stuff.”

After growing up in Burns Lake, he jumped back into Gitga’at culture with both feet, working for the band doing environmental assessments and, later, cultural studies. His master’s thesis is a political ethnography of his own people, a subject he will continue to explore.

Round Rock Parks & Rec Officials Release Footage Of What They Say Is Bigfoot

The grainy, seven-second footage shows the mythical creature (or some guy in a hairy Bigfoot suit) prancing around Brushy Creek trails.

By Tony Cantu (Patch Staff)
Updated June 20, 2017 2:43 am ET

ROUND ROCK, TX — Last week, Parks and Recreation Department officials shared photos of a Bigfoot-like footprint at the Brushy Creek trail, suggesting the fabled wilderness creature was lurking among the trees. Now, they've upped the ante, releasing actual footage of the mythical beast.

It's grainy footage lasting a mere seven seconds, but it's unmistakably the beast they call Bigfoot. Or some guy dressed in a Bigfoot costume prancing around the forest. It's a tossup.

Given the matter-of-fact nature of the Parks & Rec posts on social media centered on the sightings, we're confident in assuming this is some sort of teaser for a promotion of some sort. I mean, if it weren't, SWAT teams would've been called out, reverse 911 notices sent out to nearby residents, dire warnings issued to the community at large and outright panic would've gripped the city.

Right?

Instead, Parks & Rec officials continue to cheerfully solicit photos and footage of sightings from residents in a tone that is playful, not panicked.

"UPDATE: First VIDEO evidence captured of Bigfoot by Round Rock residents on the Brushy Creek Trail," city officials wrote on their Facebook account. "If you see any activities or other unexplained phenomena, tag Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department, or @roundrockpard on Twitter & Instagram.

The Russians Do It Again: Democrats Get Crushed In Georgia Election Despite 7x Spending Advantage

After months of Democrats boasting that Georgia's special election in the 6th district would be a startling referendum on Trump's agenda, they just got served up another stunning defeat, as most networks have now called the race for Republican Karen Handel. In fact, rather than losing ground since Trump moved into the White House, Republicans actually performed better.

Wanli UFO Village

A rare pod of derelict midcentury Futuro and Venturo houses line a semi-abandoned beachfront resort outside Taipei.

Wanli District, Taiwan: Mystery surrounds this semi-abandoned holiday resort, which represents the last pod of Futuro—a.k.a “UFO”—houses in Taiwan, as well as what may be the largest pod of Venturo houses in the world.The eerie streets of this abandoned beachside paradise still echo with the cries of surfers fighting against the strong coastal waves, from the village’s bygone days as a hub of midcentury futurism.

The Futuro houses, designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, resemble whimsical flying saucers descended to Earth. The pre-fabricated plastic oddities were designed originally as ski chalets light enough to be airlifted onto any terrain, although the ones at Wanli have substituted the adjustable UFO-style legs for tacky ’70s-era pebble-concrete staircases.

The UFO-shaped house close to the entrance of the park boasts a fully functioning airplane-style door and windows; inside the small circular space are a sitting area, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. (Other Futuros further into the park have been less well-preserved, although one nearly hidden example seems to be in continuous occupation as part of a much larger building.)

This particular pod, comprising about six Futuros, is scattered throughout a large complex of Venturo Houses, another retrofuturistic pre-fab house model by the same architect. Unlike the Futuro, the Venturo never really took off in its own era, and hasn’t experienced the same resurgence of popular interest.

REPORTEDLY, LESS THAN 10 “TRUE” VENTUROS EXIST IN THE WORLD—BUT THERE ARE MORE THAN 10 IN THIS PARK ALONE! THAT’S WHERE THE MYSTERY COMES IN: THESE DWELLINGS DO NOT APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN SANCTIONED BY SUURONEN HIMSELF, AND THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE ANY PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION AS TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM, OR EVEN EXACTLY WHEN THEY WERE BUILT.

Ha! I'm not sure if that represents our economy, our political system, our world security, or our sense of responsibility....

You have to admit, it's a heck of a lot of "collapsing"!

Mysterious Universe

Archaeologists Unearth Mythical ‘City of Giants’ in Ethiopia

Brett Tingley
June 22, 2017

Archaeologists excavating a site in Harlaa in Eastern Ethiopia have found evidence of a mythical “city of giants” which was a thriving center of commerce between the 10th and 15th centuries. Throughout modern history, residents of nearby areas believed the city might have been built and inhabited by giants due to the impossibly large size of the stone blocks which made up city walls and buildings. Researchers have found evidence that the city had well-established trade with Egypt, India and China, which could rewrite much of what we know of ancient Ethiopian history.

The site measures close to 1 square kilometer. So far, excavations have turned up a mosque built in the 12th century, Islamic burial sites with over 300 sets of remains, and scores of pottery from as far away as China and Madagascar. A small horde of glass beads has been found, a clear indication that this was once an economic center which traded with faraway lands.

Architecture found at the site bears resemblance to other known early sites in Africa, showing a previously unidentified link between early Islamic civilizations. The researchers believe that this indicates a higher level of interaction between these Islamic Golden Age civilizations.

The expedition was led by Professor Timothy Insoll from the Institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter. According to Insoll, this discovery could shine light on a completely new chapter of the history of Eastern Africa:



This discovery revolutionizes our understanding of trade in an archaeologically neglected part of Ethiopia. The archaeological findings suggest this place was home to a very mixed community. Local people were extremely keen for us to solve mysteries. Farmers had been finding strange objects, including Chinese coins, as they were working on their land, and a legend began that the area was home to giants. We have obviously disproved that, but I’m not sure they fully believe us yet. Some people have said the bodies we have discovered are the children of giants!



Children of giants? Sure would be a lot more interesting than beads. Still, this find and other recent discoveries are showing that the nations of the world might have been far more interconnected far earlier than we think. Remember: all of this has happened before and will happen again.

The Scotsman

Scottish folklore traditions in danger of dying out

They are tales and legends which form the backbone of Scottish culture and heritage, but the nation’s rich folklore tradition is under threat.

A survey has revealed that nearly a quarter of people are unable to name even just one myth, while more than two-thirds said they will not pass on stories to their children. It shows that majority of people have not heard a traditional story in the past two years, putting at risk a compendium of narratives stretching back centuries. The Folklore Society, a charitable body devoted to the study of all aspects of folklore, described the trend as “deeply saddening” and urged members of the public to keep old stories alive by sharing them with family members. In response, it has compiled a dedicated folklore map of Britain, which includes a clutch of Scottish tales. They include some well-known legends, such as that of the Loch Ness monster, and the legend of how King Arthur used Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh as a vast throne. Others, however, have largely fallen out of the public consciousness. They include the Laird’s Brownie in Dalswinton, Dumfries-shire, which tells of a kindly spirit which served a local laird, even helping the save the life of its master’s daughter by fetching the midwife in an emergency. The society also highlighted the Borders legend of Thomas the Rhymer, who is reputed to have met a fairy queen in the Eildon Hills. After staying with her for what he thought was three days, he discovered he had been away for three years, during which he had acquired the gift of prophecy.

Jeremy Harte, a committee member of the Folklore Society, said: “Countries aren’t just made up of rocks and rivers. They’re also made up of the stories we tell each other, about the places we know. These tales give a special character to our homes, and poetry to our landscape.

Bye Bye, UK

Islam is the second largest religion in the United Kingdom. In 2014 the total population of Muslims in Great Britain was estimated to have increased to 3,115,000, of which about half (1,554,000) were born overseas.

Islam is the fastest growing religious confession in the UK and its adherents have the lowest average age out of all the major religious groups.

Census Year/Number of Muslims/Population of
England and Wales/Muslim (% of population)/Registered
mosques/Muslims per mosque
1961 50,000 46,196,000 0.11 7 7,143
1971 226,000 49,152,000 0.46 30 7,533
1981 553,000 49,634,000 1.11 149 3,711
1991 950,000 51,099,000 1.86 443 2,144
2001 1,600,000 52,042,000 3.07 614 2,606
2011 2,706,000 56,076,000 4.83 1,500 1,912
2014 (estimate) 3,047,000 – 5.4 1,750 (2015) 1,741

Muslims are playing an increasingly prominent role in political life. Fifteen Muslim MPs were elected in the June 2017 general election, and there are twelve Muslim peers in the House of Lords.

British Muslims are well represented in various media positions across different organisations. Notable examples include Mehdi Hasan, the political editor of the UK version of The Huffington Post and the presenter of Al Jazeera English shows The Café and Head to Head, Mishal Husain, a British news presenter for the BBC, currently appearing on BBC World News and BBC Weekend News, Rageh Omaar, special correspondent with ITV and formerly Senior Foreign Correspondent with the BBC and a reporter/presenter for Al Jazeera English, and Faisal Islam, economics editor and correspondent for Channel 4 News.

There are several Islamic television channels operating in the UK, including British Muslim TV, Muslim Television Ahmadiyya International (MTA International), Ummah Channel, Ahlebait TV, and Fadak.
