18 Places Google Earth Doesn't Want You to See
If you’ve never toyed around with Google Earth, whether for fun or strictly educational purposes, then you’ve been missing out! There are so many cool and bizarre things you can see from satellite images that you probably wouldn’t catch if you didn’t have a bird’s eye view. For example, you can see graffiti in a volcanic crater in Mexico, the world’s largest logo in Chile, a pond full of hippos in Tanzania, and even Batman’s secret hideout in Japan… Wait, what? You heard right! Watch the video for that and more!

And the airplane graveyard in Tucson, Arizona is by far the largest in the world. - Canada’s Victoria Island lies within a lake, and there’s a lake on Victoria Island with another island in it! - The Badlands Guardian in Alberta is not human-made. The head of the “Badlands Guardian” is a natural earth formation, or at least scientists say so. - The act of cutting white horses out of hills actually has its own specific name: leucippotomy. - The last thing you’d expect to see in the yellowish-red landscapes of Utah is a bright blue spot that instantly catches your eye. These are actually potash ponds, and they do look surreal, to say the least. - Looking at this place from above, you might start thinking what a giant tsunami it must’ve been to throw such a large ship so far ashore. Worry not, though, it’s just a shopping center in Hong Kong. - Chile and Peru are famous for their geoglyphs that date back more than a thousand years. Scientists believe it was a drawing of some deity of that time. - What looks like something you’d see in some alien conspiracy documentary is, in fact, just an art installation made in 1997. - Chilean Coca Cola marketing experts took 70,000 empty Coke bottles to write the company’s logo in the side of a hill. In fact, it’s part of a bigger trend called “mapvertising” where different companies do similar stuff. - There’d been many rumors about the origins and purpose of this huge concrete structure found in the Nevada desert. The most recent theory, though, suggests that there are several of such markings all over the US. - The Mirny mine is a one of the largest artificial holes in the world, made to dig out diamonds. Siberia is well-known for its diamond deposits, so it’s only natural that such a huge mine should be excavated here. - Google Earth shows every piece of graffiti in this crater in detail, which means you can actually see them all from a bird’s eye view.

Hernan Araneda: Lessons from Chile’s mining sector | Extractive industries and development
Mining sector is very large for Chile, counting for 50% of the country’s exports. However, minerals are a finite resource. It is predicted that the mining can go on for only 70 years more. A key question is, what should Chile do to benefit from mining in the long term, extending beyond the extractive industries? 0:06 Copper mining in Chile 1:08 Three key lessons: recognizing the importance of the industry, community engagement, and technology More about the project: http://www.wider.unu.edu/extractives More about UNU-WIDER: http://www.wider.unu.edu

Where does your phone come from? | The Economist
Apple is expected to announce its latest handset—the iPhone XS. Like all smartphones it will contain more than 70 chemical elements, which are mined from the Earth's crust in countries all over the world. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy The number of smartphone users globally is set to reach 2.5 billion by 2019. Around a third of the world's population will own one. Smartphones touch every element of our lives but did you know that they also connect nearly every element on the planet. In fact of the 118 elements on the periodic table 75 can be found inside a smartphone. These raw materials are extracted from the ground and shipped to refineries and factories in a truly global supply chain. Silicon, one of the most common elements in the Earth's crust, is used to make the billions of transistors in the chips that power your phone. Gold is used for electrical wiring, about 0.03g of it in each iPhone. Indium, another metal, is used to make touchscreens. But when it comes to batteries, lithium is one really key components and this element is only mined in a handful of countries. Until recently, Chile used to produce the most lithium but now Australia has the biggest market share. The Democratic Republic of Congo, a dangerously unstable country with a poor human rights record, produces more than half the world's cobalt, another crucial element in smartphone batteries. Smartphone makers are under pressure to ensure their cobalt is responsibly sourced. About 80% of the cobalt used in batteries is refined in China. Many so-called rare earth elements are also used in smartphones. In the screen, the speaker, and the motor that makes your phone vibrate. About 85% of rare earth elements are produced in China. Despite their name rare earth elements are not particularly rare but they are hard to extract without producing toxic and radioactive byproducts. Many of the elements used in smartphones are finite resources and have no functional substitutes. Rather than digging in the ground for the elements needed for new handsets it makes sense to extract them from old phones - but only about 10% of handsets are recycled now. So recycle your phone if you get a new one this year. Why? It is you might say, Elementary. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

Remote And ISOLATED Places In The World!
Check out these remote and isolated places on earth! From extreme cold temperatures to unbelievable amazing nature, these locations around the world are beautiful but hard to live in! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "FORBIDDEN Places You CANNOT Visit!" video here: https://youtu.be/JmluqmT3WTs Watch our "6 LOST Cities Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/0Jx6OToOXos Watch our "AMAZING Places Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/xdWeyQ86cPM 10. Oymyakon, Russia This town has a reputation of being the coldest inhabited town in the world! The average temperature is around -58 degrees, and it is completely dark for up to 21 hours a day during winter. But in 1933, the temperature dropped to a bone-chilling -90! Because of the temperature, it is practically impossible to grow any crops here, which is one of the major drawbacks for the inhabitants. The people are forced to use food such as frozen fish meat, reindeer meat and the local delicacy – ice-cubed horse blood with macaroni. Yummy! Another problem for the people of Oymyakon is the plumbing. Because of the harsh weather, the plumbing systems will freeze, so the locals have outhouses. Good old outhouses in the freezing weather. As for their cars, people keep them inside heated garages, or simply leave them running outside. Oymyakon is 576 miles away from the nearest major city of Yakutsk, and it will take you a couple of days to get there, so be prepared. But the place has a great reputation, with interesting people, indoor fun and games and an “exotic” cuisine, to say the least. How they manage to keep sane in that weather, though – is beyond me. 9. Easter Island, Chile This is one of the most isolated islands in the world with a population of around 6,500 people. It is 2,500 miles east of Tahiti and the nearest continental point is in Chile, some 2,300 miles away. In 1888, Chile annexed Easter Island, and from then on it’s been considered a part of Insular Chile. As you probably know, Easter Island is most famous for its almost 900 giant stone heads, known as Moai by the Rapa Nui people who carved the figures. These monoliths are from between 1,100 and 1,500 AD and have actual hidden bodies underneath the ground. Their creators were master craftsmen and engineers and there is still much speculation and mystery surrounding their purpose. Easter Island is a volcanic hot spot, similar to Hawaii, but the only regular flights are via LAN airlines from Santiago de Chile. It’s quite out of the way for almost everyone and it is pretty much only convenient if you are doing a trip around the world. 8. Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland This small settlement in Greenland is one of the remotest settlements on Earth. It was founded in 1925, and it’s the farthest of all inhabited areas on Greenland. The only way to get to it is by helicopter or boat! This place, practically at the edge of the world, has a population of just 450 people, but there have been a lot of tourists in recent years. This place is actually very close to the biggest multi-branched fjord system in the world, and a national park so the surrounding scenery is nothing short of amazing. It’s frozen 9 months out of the year and the only way this town can survive is through fishing and hunting. If you want to visit Ittoqqortoormiit as a tourist, it’s totally possible; it has one bright orange guesthouse in town, a pub that opens one night a week, a general store, and a post office. Travel companies can arrange all manner of adventurous excursions, from dog sledding and kayaking to hiking and hunting. Just be ready for chilly weather! 7. La Rinconada, Peru This is a small mining town located high up in the Peruvian Andes. It is officially the world’s highest city, at 5,130 m above sea level. La Rinconada lies on a glacier that’s permanently frozen, and the only way to reach it is by truck via winding roads up the mountain. There is no airport anywhere close by. Not many people can handle the trip to La Rinconada, let alone live there. To reach the city takes days and then you have to deal with the altitude sickness, which is an ordeal in itself. Nevertheless, this place has a population of 30,000 people. Why? Because word got out that there was gold in the area so prospectors moved to the remote location by the thousands. Most of them are involved in the gold mining business. Allegedly, the working conditions in La Rinconada are deplorable, which only add to the misery of this place. It operates under a system where miners work throughout the month for no pay. After their 30 days, they can leave the mine hauling as much ore as they can carry on their person. The catch is there is no way of telling if there is any gold in the ore at all.

ALIEN Places on Earth
From environments most comparable to those found on other planets to the mysterious Devil’s Tower here’s some places that, while they may be on earth, look like they belong in a different world entirely. Subscribe to Knowledge Feed for awesome mysteries, discoveries, fun topics and all around AWESOME videos ! 10. Atacama Desert The Atacama Desert in Chile is one of the driest, most inhospitable places on Earth, an environment which NASA researchers are absolutely thrilled with. For people who need to approximate the conditions of Mars, the Atacama Desert is the perfect place. Rovers are regularly driven through patches of the desert so that builders can see how they hold up in preparation for alien environments. 9. Spotted Lake in Canada Summer months in many parts of Canada are beautiful, but at the Spotted Lake in British Columbia, they reveal a brighter, more colorful world. The lake is full of various mineral deposits that are revealed when most of it's water evaporates in the heat. The site has bee n revered (re veered) for hundreds of years as having therapeutic and medically beneficial waters. 8. Red Beach It's hard to accept when you first see pictures, but these images exist in real life and haven’t been altered in any way. Located in China amongst the biggest wetland and reed marsh in the world this visual phenomenon is caused by the sea weed, which turns bright red in the Autumn. Imagine unexpectedly finding yourself on Red Beach, you would think you were on some other world for sure. 7. Valley of Fire On a bright, sunny day, this valley 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas appears to be on fire. That’s thanks to its red sandstone formations which were created from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago and give the area it's name. It has some out of this world formations like Elephant Rock, Winstone Arch and Fire Wave. It’s also full of petroglyphs left by ancient pueblo peoples thousands of years ago. 6. Waitomo Glowworm Caves Found on the North Island in New Zealand, a place that was used as the backdrop for Middle Earth in the Lord of the Rings, these caves are most notable for it's species of glowworms that are unique to the caves that they light up. The local Maori people had known of the caves for centuries before showing an English surveyor in the 1880’s. 5. Great Blue Hole Like the Eye of the Sahara you can only truly appreciate the Great Blue Hole which is 43 miles from Belize City from a bird's eye view. The giant submarine sinkhole is almost one thousand feet across and plunges around 350 feet deep. Scuba divers can appreciate it's depths and the spot has become a popular place for scuba diving. 4. Door to Hell The Soviets tried to set up a drilling platform in Turkmenistan in 1971 and the Door to Hell is what happened. The rig collapsed and panicked researchers set the resulting crater on fire hoping to curtail the spread of poisonous methane gas. They assumed the fire would burn out in a timely fashion. Today, nearly a half century later the fire continues to burn, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors and making for one of many odd leftovers from the Soviet Union. 3. Devil’s Tower Every year around four hundred thousand people visit Devil’s Tower in Wyoming. Of those one percent, or around four thousand traverse the Tower, which has to make for an awesome view when they reach the summit. How exactly the tower formed is still a mystery. Geologists agree that it was created by an igneous intrusion, but how it took place is unknown. Some experts feel that it's all that remains of what was once a huge volcano but there is certainly no consensus on this theory. 2. Rio Tinto River Winding it's way through southwestern Spain the Rio Tinto River has a lot of iron in it, making it extremely acidic with a pH of 2 and giving it it's crazy, hard to believe reddish hue. People living in the region have mined the area for thousands of years for copper, gold, silver and other minerals. This has likely led to the acidic nature of the Rio Tinto. The presence of life in the Rio Tinto points to the likelihood of life in other areas of our solar system that have similar conditions. Thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you guys soon. Hey don’t forget to leave some feedback in the comments section and oh ya check out number one, it’ll blow your socks off, if of course you’re wearing socks. 1. Cave of the Crystals The giant gypsum crystals you see here are a part of the Cave of the Crystals. The cave’s main chamber contains some of the largest natural crystals you can find on this planet. It’s extremely hot with humidity comparable to a bad day in Florida. These factors mean that people can only endure ten minutes of exposure at a time without proper protection. It also leaves the cave relatively unexplored so who knows what could be lurking in its mysterious depths.

STRANGEST Places in Russia
FROM ABANDONED ISLANDS; TO MYSTERIOUS ANCIENT MAZES; THESE ARE THE 11 STRANGEST Places in Russia ! HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 11.Yamal Craters During a routine trip, helicopter pilots spotted a mysterious hole, deep in the Siberian Permafrost. Before it was news, a second hole was reported... then a third. At this point, it was not easy to dismiss the curious case of the sinkholes, craters, shafts, whatever you want to call them. By February 2015, a total of seven craters were reported, and people wanted answers. The first official reports stated the craters were caused by explosive methane release, a process connected to global warming.... But other theories have surfaced as well. The holes were there the whole time, they were just covered by ice plugs, that ice melted and boom - there is a hole again. The methane in the area is typical. Unfortunately, the 2nd theory doesn't explain the built up material around the hole, which is indicative of an explosion and not fast melting ice. Both theories do have one thing in common, global warming, but that's a subject for a different video. Stranger still, some internet detectives believe that the craters are the result of experimental plasma arc weapon technology.... 10.Norilsk 9.Vottovaara Mountain In 1978, a Russian adventurer stumbled across this mysterious and unsettling place. Even though it has grown in popularity, the mountain is still hard to access. There are no paved roads and nice tourist welcome centers that hand out visitor maps. With stories of UFO landings, rituals of sacrifice, and eerie “stone pools”, the Vottovaara Mountain will surely be the subject of discoveries in the future. But for now, we only have stories. The whole surrounding area is of special importance to the ancient Sami people, who have lived on these lands for 100s of years, and to this day, pagan believers visit the mountain in hopes of understanding it. The dead trees give out the weirdest vibes, maybe they are the trapped souls of all those ancient people that were sacrificed here? 8.Bolshoi Zayatsky Island 7.Novaya Zemlya 6.Por-Bazhyn 5.Kizhi Island Lots of weird little islands around Russia huh? Kizhi island doesn’t have a grand mystery or unexplained history around it, it's just… different. The big 22 dome church we see in these pictures was built in 1714 and has managed to stay strong to this day, with only minor repairs. At one point, the church was surrounded by a massive wall that served as protection from Polish and Swedish attacks. The island is part of the Kizhi Open Air Museum, and anyone that is interested in the beautiful architecture, can visit around 90 different wooden structures. Pretty cool. 4.The Amber Room 3.Mir Mine Another YouTube Certified ClickBait 3000, the mir mine. The Kimberlite Diamond Pipe “Peace” was one of the deepest open pit mines in the world, so big that helicopters are not allowed to fly over it because of the apparent “suction” by its sheer size and depth. Well, not really. There isn’t any “suction” or staggering gravitational change, the real reason behind the no fly zone is the change of air temperature above the pit. The temperature difference can cause a deadly loss of lift that an inexperienced pilot can not recover from. There is also the whole De Beers conspiracy… which is more fact than conspiracy really. The mining operation in Russia was so big that the De Beers Company, the main distributor of diamonds in the world, had to start buying most of the production from the Mir Mine, so they could still charge exorbitant prices for their diamonds… such nice people right ? Screw it, lets look at some more mines, so we have the Mir Mine at #4, then the Udachnaya Pipe at #3, at number #2 we have Chuquicamata in Chile; and at #1, the largest man made hole in the world, the Bingham Canyon Mine located in Utah. Needless to say, I’m making a mine video in the near future. 2.The Motherland Calls 1.Church of Andrew the Apostle on Vuoksi River We have arrived at our final destination; the secluded Church found in the middle of a river. Believe it or not; the church is not 100s of years old, it was actually built in the year 2000. The Church is open to anyone who is willing to make the trek across the river. If you are afraid of small boats; you can always wait for the winter, when the water around it freezes. So did you know how many time zones Russia spans? The answer is 11, just for comparison, the continental US spans only 4 time zones.

The growing demand for lithium
With the price of oil expected to climb, there's a growing demand for alternatively fueled vehicles. This has sparked a global interest in the natural resource lithium. It's a key ingredient in rechargeable batteries. An estimated 80 percent of the world's lithium is found in Chile, Argentina and Bolivia.

Urban Mining - Gold in our trash - VPRO documentary - 2015
Our waste is worth money. Recovering it has started up a new global industry worth billions. It is called Urban Mining and it appears to be the solution for many of our environmental problems and our energy needs. And it is hot. A ton of broken mobile phones, computers or other electronic waste contains sixty times the amount of gold a ton of gold ore has. Moreover, it is easier to get at. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of total world demand for rare metals can be covered by urban mining and this is only the beginning. Urban Mining has a different, almost hilarious consequence: for years we have dumped our electronic waste in developing countries, with our eyes closed. There, it was to be recycled. But in Africa only one quarter of the gold, platinum and coltan is recovered whereas the newest technology in Belgium recovers almost 99 percent. So somewhere there’s a profit to be made. The NGO ‘Closing the Loop’ is buying up dead mobile phones and computer parts that we have dumped in developing countries making our waste a desirable sales item over there.

Eeriest Most Abandoned Ghost Towns
From spooky abandoned prison colonies to villages washed away by floods, here are the eeriest most abandoned ghost towns Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Thurmond West Virginia Once a thriving center of Coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous place of commerce and businesses along the Ohio Railway. It popped up in the 1880’s in the center of the state and consisted of popular hotels, casinos, banks, schools. It was a fairly well organized city with strict laws on drinking. In 1888 a rail station was built which allowed for tourism in the area and also to carry the coal out of the hills. The population reached a peak of 462 people 1930 but steady downfall would occur not too long after. A popular hotel was burnt to the ground which which had startled much of the population and would finally reach 0 in the year 2000. You can see the contrast between the cities built out in the west and out in the east during this time. There was much more technological advancements and the addition of coal to a city at this period of time would allow them to heat their homes. Surprisingly the city hasn’t received too many vandals and much of it’s past is preserved. 5. Glenrio, Texas This mysterious ghost town straddles the border of New Mexico and Texas and is found along the mainstreet of American, or route 66. Although the population never got to be more than a few dozen people, being located on the border of two different states posed some unique problems. Some mail would have to be delivered to the post office in one state, and then delivered to the post office in the other state before it could get distributed. Gasoline prices were different one side, and drinking laws even differed across the border. Various highways that were constructed made the traditional route 66 that ran through the town a little less necessary and the ones who did live here moved around. What’s left are some derelict buildings and gas stations, stuck in time. 4. Adak Island, Alaska Sometimes places become abandoned because they are so remote from the rest of the world. This island located at the eastern part of the Aleutian island chain was once home to Alaska’s southernmost town. It’s been home to both the native inuit people, the russians and also the americans. The harsh winds and cold temperatures certainly make living here a challenge. However due to it’s strategic location, after world war II, about 6000 American military men who saw previous combat were stationed here. Fresh food was hard to combine, very few women to comfort them and the soil was quite difficult to cultivate any crops on. This was about as close as the americans could get to russia so it was an important piece of land to fortify. Today, only 110 people have decided to stay here and US army buildings are now empty. The airport still remains in use but it’s certainly not an easy place to get to. 3. Sewell Chile Completely surrounded by the Chilean Andes mountains, this remote abandoned place is found at an altitude of over 6000 feet, making it quite difficult to access. It was founded in 1906 by the braden Copper company in order to extract copper ore from the mountains. By 1915, the town was well organized with the addition of a hospital, a fire department and a social club. Building were mostly made of timber and were displayed with bright colors like we see here. The large town grew up to 12,000 people in 1918 and at its peak in the 1960’s that number grew to 16,000 people. Also known as the city of staircases, it’s built on the side of a mountain which certainly made transportation by car a little bit tricky. It turned out that staircases were the best way for inhabitants to get around. In 1967 the decline began when the kennecott copper company lost ownership of the site and the Argentinian government sought to control the land. Plus most people were beginning to move to other locations where more copper was being found. The chilean government decided to keep the city as a ghost town and it’s now a unesco world heritage site. You can actually explore this place quite well on google maps. A lot of the buildings still look to be in good condition but you can tell no one’s living there. 2. Kayakoy, Turkey Also known as the Rock Village, this town was built in the 1700’s but was fled after the beginning of the Greco-Turkish War. Much violence swept over the town due to religious differences among the Greek Orthodox and the Anatolian Muslims of turkey. Many greeks suffered brutal treatment for their beliefs and their cries for help were silenced In 1923, it was decided that for peacekeeping reasons it needed to be abandoned. The village we see today, serves a museum and a historical monument. 1...

Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist
Top unreal places that really exist! These are the most unbelievable and surreal places to travel to and the most amazing places on Earth! 6. Eternal Flame Falls - This waterfall is in Chestnut Ridge Park in New York. Although Eternal Flame Falls isn’t massive, it has an interesting element, fire. Near the bottom of the waterfall, there is a tiny cavern that natural gas flows out of. When lit, the gas produces a flame that can be seen yearlong. Although, sometimes the fire goes out and has to be ignited again. Eternal Flame Falls wasn’t originally a popular tourist destination, but as it gained more recognition from the media, people started visiting it more often. It has also been studied by several geologists, who discovered that it emits more propane and ethane than other natural gas-secreting places. 5. Zhangye Danxia Landform - This stunning landscape is found in Linze County, China. These rocks are like Ogres; they have layers. They’re much more stunning than Shrek’s relatives, however. They appear velvety, but form pointed, jagged peaks. The striped, multicolored stone is due to the different types of minerals that were deposited throughout the landform’s sandstone base millions of years ago. The bright hues give Zhangye Danxia Landform the appearance of a rainbow. This whimsical place could be right out of a Dr. Seuss story and has often been named one of China’s most brilliant landforms. 4. Naica Mine - This world wonder is in Chihuahua, Mexico. It has gained a lot of recognition due to its colossal selenite crystals. In fact, within the mine, there is a cavern called The Cave of Crystals. It is about one thousand feet under the surface and encompasses some of the most substantial crystals ever discovered, the largest of which is nearly forty feet long, thirteen feet across, and weighs over fifty tons. These sparkling cylinders were formed by magma-heated, mineral-rich water that came into contact with chilled water. The cool water oxidized the sulfides, turning them into sulfates. Over the course of about five hundred thousand years, they crystallized, creating the breathtaking formations seen in the cave today.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - February 2019: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs
February was another month of significant extreme weather events. More 'record' floods, cold, and snowfalls... and a couple of record heat events due to the changing of the jet stream that creates hot air pockets in localized areas. But these are of little impact when compared to the decreasing temperatures around the world, particularly in the Northern hemisphere. Of course, the mass media focused on and magnified the few record heat events this month to divert public attention from what matters - the possible beginning of an ice age due to the Solar Minimum; that's is already having dire impacts in the daily life of millions. Record rain and floods affected millions. The most devastating events took place in the Middle east; Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Jordan were taken by surprise by raging waters. Meanwhile, an unprecedented flash flood soaked the world's driest place, Atacama desert, in Chile. Again, cold and snow continued to break records; chaos and blackouts ensued in Czech Republic, dozens of flights got canceled in Kashmir, record snow blocked roads in Pakistan, and froze Moscow. The US got the worst of the cold this month, from heavy snowfalls in Seattle, to unusual temperatures in New Mexico and Las Vegas, and a 'Bomb cyclone' that hit eastern states leaving 550,000 without power. Some US ski resorts that were booming last month due to heavy snow had to close during February because there was too much snow! California has suffered some of the most extreme weather over the last couple of years, from droughts to wildfires to record snowfalls. Meteor fireballs also left a mark this month (as usual!), starting with a meteorite in Cuba that baffled hundreds of people with an thunderous boom that shattered windows... very similar to what happened in Chelyabinsk 6 years ago in the same month... another sign? This bolide was also sighted over Florida. As the earth slowly opens up, more sinkholes were reported around the world with Turkey and Indonesia particularly badly hit. One M5.5 earthquake in Hokkaido and another M7.7 in the Peru-Ecuador border triggered landslides and damaged infrastructure, this was in addition to an unusual swarm of low magnitude quakes around the Ring of Fire. And last but not least, crops and cattle continued to pay the price for extreme weather this month. Music used: 'Escape from the Temple' by Per Kiilstofte.

10 Strangest Places Found on Earth
Here are 10 of Earth’s most unusual features. Mother Nature is a brilliant creator overall, but from time to time she gets particularly creative. Here are 10 of Earth’s most unusual features. Number 10. Blood Falls. Rest easy – it’s not really blood that’s pouring off of the Antarctic cliff. What causes the water to take on a ruddy appearance stems from it having been isolated from the rest of the world for millions of years. Over time it’s become particularly salty and iron-rich, which gives it a reddish hue.  Number 9. Lake Hillier. Though it looks like something that belongs on the grounds of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, this bright pink lake is actually in Australia. It isn’t the world’s only rose-tinged body of water, but it does possess the unique ability to retain its color when temperatures shift. Why that is remains unknown.  Number 8. Cave of Crystals in the Naica Mine, Mexico. Crystals forming in caves isn’t typically all that newsworthy, but when pillars of gypsum grow to be numerous times larger than a human, it turns some heads. The site was discovered around 2000 by a couple of miners who were out in search of lead.   Number 7. Pamukkale. Its name translates as ‘Cotton Palace’ as that’s the image the terraced hollows and expansive mineral depots evoke. The water that washes over them is believed to have medicinal properties, making the Turkish location a popular wellness destination.  Number 6. Zhangye Danxia Landform. Mountains are generally awe-inspiring, but these painterly beauties in China are definitely more so than most. It took about 25 million years of sandstone and minerals being deposited and eroded to achieve the dazzling effect.  Number 5. Caño Cristales. Depending upon the season, the waters of this Colombian river run red, green, blue, yellow, or orange. Some refer to it as the ‘Liquid Rainbow’ while others opt for the more poetic ‘river that ran away from paradise.’  Number 4. Dean’s Blue Hole. Despite its rather humble sounding name, this Bahamian geological feature is the deepest known water-filled sinkhole in the world. Its depth has been recorded at 663 feet, which is twice the typical maximum for pits of its kind.  Number 3. The Eye of the Sahara. In the midst of the desert rests a rock bullseye that measures approximately 30 miles across. It’s believed that it started off as a dome pushed up from the Earth’s surface. From there it was likely carved out by years of environmental wear and tear. Number 2. Marble Caves. It’s not an easy place to get to, but the system located in Chile’s Patagonian Andes is considered well worth the trip. While the swirled cavern walls are a sight to behold all on their own, it’s their reflection on the surrounding blue waters that is often considered to be the most breathtaking. Number 1. Goblin Valley State Park. If running through a naturally formed mountain maze amidst 150-foot tall goblins sounds like your idea of a good time, you may want to book a trip to this Utah locale. Years of erosion has resulted in the formation of shapes that many say look just like creatures of lore.  Which unusual feature do you think is nature’s most dazzling achievement?

World's Most DANGEROUS and Dramatic Sinkholes!
Here is a list of the deepest and scariest sinkholes in the world! These terrifying and strange pits are absolutely mysterious and seemingly created out of nowhere. Check out the Great Blue Hole, Dragon Hole, Siberian Holes, Heavenly Pit, Agrico Gypsum stack and more! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Top AMAZING Facts About Planet Earth!" video here: https://youtu.be/2bo0p7ndMZY Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Ocean Facts!" video here: https://youtu.be/BzrlpgRVPQg Watch our "12 Historical Treasures In The Middle East DESTROYED!" video here: https://youtu.be/Nt9mWUpTp1U 11. Great Blue Hole, Belize Probably the World's most amazing sinkhole is the Great Blue Hole made famous by Jacques Cousteau. It is a large submarine sinkhole 60 miles off the coast of Belize. The hole is over 300m across and 125m deep. The Great Blue Hole formed as a limestone cave during the last ice age in the world over 150,000 years ago. As the ocean began to rise, the cave system flooded and eventually collapsed, creating a "vertical cave" in the ocean. It has unusual stilted stalactites and is part of the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, which has been declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Scuba divers frequent this reef because of the rare animal species and unique geological formations. The World has many Sinkholes but this might be the world's biggest sinkhole in the world! 10. Dragon Hole, South China Sea Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas was thought to be the world’s deepest known underwater sinkhole. It plunges 202 meters down and widens considerably into a cavern making it a favorite among world's professional deep-sea divers. The area is a tourist hotspot, and is home to a varied assortment of marine life. It’s also host to several World Championship diving events, including Vertical Blue, where more than 30 divers around the world compete in a series of free-diving challenges. However, researchers just announced on July 22, 2016, that Dragon Hole is 300 meters deep, making it the deepest blue sinkhole in the world. Blue meaning filled with seawater. Experts said they had also discovered about 20 marine species in the cave and continue to study the hole. The World has many Sinkholes but this might be the world's biggest sinkhole in the world! 9. Guatemala City Sinkholes, Guatemala  On February 23, 2007, out of the clear blue sky, this sinkhole collapsed killing five people and over 1000 were evacuated. The hole was over 100 meters deep and was the result of a corroded sewage system deep beneath the surface of the world that eroded the volcanic ash, limestone, and other soft minerals underlying Guatemala City. Citizens had hear rumblings a few weeks before but didn't know what it was. The hole was later filled in with soil cement and cost the Guatemalan government $2.7 million. Since the entire city is built on loose volcanic pumice and gravel, experts warned that it could happen at any time. Just 3 years later in 2010, another giant sinkhole in Guatemala City swallowed a three-story factory, killing 15. Again, the sewer pipes played a role creating a sink hole that was 100 meters deep. Bad things come in threes and this along with Tropical Storm Agatha, and the Pacaya Volcano eruption made the government declare a state of emergency. Sinkholes are a dangerous reality for the people of Guatemala City and could happen anywhere in the city unless the government improves the city's runoff and waste water systems. The World has many Sinkholes but this might be the world's biggest sinkhole in the world! 8. Siberian Holes The three craters, one in Taymyr peninsula and two in Yamal, are believed to have been caused by huge underground gas explosions. Known by locals as the “end of the world”, the massive craters sparked endless theories about how they got there. The most famous crater - known to scientists as B-1 - was measured by echo-sounder this week and found to be over 60 meters deep, significantly more than previously thought. Discovered in 2014, it is located not far from Gazprom’s Bovanenkovo gas field in Russia’s northern Yamal Peninsula. The hole has been gradually filling up with water and is turning into a lake. The ring of dirt and debris around each hole indicates these massive holes were created by a force that stemmed from inside the Earth and exploded outward. Theories for the cause of these explosions include stray missiles, gas-related mishaps, pranks and, of course, extra terrestrial interference. The most likely explanation is that the holes are a kind of reverse sinkhole that has yet to be scientifically documented. Instead of collapsing in on themselves, it’s thought the holes were initiated by underground fissures that caused the melting of permafrost. The holes then filled with natural gas and, when the pressure became too great, dirt and debris erupted outwards. The World has many Sinkholes but this might be the world's biggest sinkhole in the world!

Bolivia Chile - Altiplano to Atacama Explorer
Starting in the country’s largest city, Santa Cruz, the trip first takes us on a journey from the tropical lowlands, via out of the way and seldom visited locations, towards the altiplano. Here we’ll visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Samaipata, the archaeological ruins of El Fuerte and the interesting village of La Higuera, where Che Guevara met his untimely end. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991, Sucre is undoubtedly Bolivia’s most beautiful town, and is regarded as the symbolic heart of the country. As the location of the first declaration of independence in the Americas from Spain in 1809, Sucre holds a special place in Bolivia’s, if not the entire continents, national psyche. Today it is a pretty colonial town, with elegant administrative buildings, spectacular churches and monasteries, good museums, and is famous for its silver and chocolate shops. There is also a very interesting dinosaur park on the outskirts of town, where 65 million year old dinosaur footprints can be seen. From here we travel on, along a beautiful mountain road, to Potosi. Out of the giant mountain, or the Rich Hill as its known, that stands above Potosi the Spanish managed to extract enough silver to build an empire. The mine is still in use, extracting zinc, copper and what silver is left and forms one of the more bizarre experiences travellers can take. But if burrowing underground is not to your liking the town, which was at one time reputed to be the richest city on earth, with a population twice that of Paris, is still well worth a visit. It has an excellent museum and some wonderful colonial architecture. This has got to be one of the highlights of any trip to Bolivia, heading out across the Uyuni Salt flats, the largest salt flats anywhere on earth. Formed 25,000 years ago when a seismic shift in the continental plates drained a vast inland saltwater lake, leaving behind a perfect white crystal plane of salt. At 12,000sqkms, it stretches as far as the eye can see broken only by a few dark cactus covers islands. But it's not just the lake itself that is so interesting; it’s also about the people that live, and have lived, around it. Hiking up a ridge below Tunupa volcano to get a better view, you’ll be led into a cave where you’ll find the mummified bodies of two men, two women and two infants. They are thought to be members of the Uruquillas tribe that legend says made their way overland from Mongolia 2,500 years ago. Our guide told us they were a noble family, probably farmers, that lived and died here 700 years ago. Today people still eek an existence out of the land around them. Some farm llamas and quinoa on the lower slopes of the volcanoes. Others make a living from the salt itself, either by cutting it into blocks for the building trade, or for animal salt licks, or by drying it out, crushing it up, bagging it and selling it as table salt. Travelling on to Chile, over the high altiplano you are going to be in for a real treat. On this route you’ll pass by, and visit, some of the most magnificent natural wonders anywhere on the continent. Including geyser fields, dazzling lakes – packed with flamingos – and important geological features… What you can see behind me is the Colorado Fault. This is where the South America plate is crashing into the Nazca plate, the South American one going above, the Nazca one going below, and it causes this huge gash in the earth. And finally you are going to end up here, in the amazing Atacama Desert. Sitting in the rain shadow of both the Andes and the Chilean Coastal Range, the Atacama Desert is renowned as being the driest place on earth. It is also the region that has been driest for longest, with some suggesting a continuous arid area here dating back at least three million years. Some of the soil has no life at all, a situation NASA has exploited to test instruments for Mars missions. And, due to its otherworldly landscapes, it has been used as a location on numerous space films including Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets. Forming the northern chain of Chile’s ‘Ring of Fire’ the region is framed by a spectacular girdle of volcanoes and plethora of fascinating geographical phenomenon. During your time here you’ll go for a good hike though the Salt canyon, visit the Valley of the Moon, the high altitude geyser fields, where you might like to take a swim in a thermal pool, and the Salt Range – perfect place for sunset shots. And if the skies are clear you’ll also do a star gazing trip – the Atacama is known as the best place in the world from which to see space. So the trip ends here in San Pedro de Atacama. From here we drive to Calama, from where we fly to Santiago and home or on for an extension. It’s been an amazing journey.

Falkland Islands | A Journey to the Bottom of the Earth
Come along on a journey to the bottom of the earth on my two week trip to the Falkland Islands. I assembled this video to show you what I saw and hopefully, I can make you feel, at least a little bit, the way I did when leaving the Falklands. And for those of you who might not know that much about the Falkland Islands, I also added a real brief history of the islands and a little bit about the Falklands War. The Falkland Islands are one of those rare places left where you can escape the modern world. Located 300 miles to the east of the bottom tip of South America. Their remote location has left the Falklands a place for one of a kind wildlife encounters. Of all the places we’ve visited in recent years the Falklands are unlike any of the others – and I think that is was what I grew to love about the Falklands the most.

Randy Scott on 2014 and Rare Element Resources Wyoming location advantage
April 4, 2014 -- Randy Scott, President and CEO of Rare Element Resources ('RER', TSX: RES | NYSE MKT: REE) speaks to Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel, about what we should expect in 2014 from Rare Element Resources. Randy says that "2014, based on the accomplishments of 2013, is shaping up to be a very important year for us. We have plans to start our final feasibility study. We're updating all the information that we've collected from a number of different tests, resource estimates and engineering estimates that we've been doing. So in 2014, I think the key items for us will be starting the feasibility study as well as getting our product from the pilot plant tests in the hands of potential customers for evaluation." Randy also addresses the issue of resource sustainability in the United States and whether or not there are changes on the way. He says that RER has had a formal program underway for the past three years "in which we've engaged the local communities as well as state legislatures, the state community in Wyoming and even individuals at the federal level." He went on to say, "At the federal level....there have been a lot of studies done but not that much tangible comes out of those studies except for a growing recognition of the importance of rare earths." Randy mentions the example of the F-35 jet fighter program, and how it has propelled rare earths back to the top of people's agenda. The US Government Accountability Office, in fact, has launched an investigation into the Pentagon's waiver of laws banning the use of Chinese-built components, in this case magnets, in US weapon systems. These waivers occurred in order to keep the Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter program from falling further behind schedule. All this occurred while the US military expressed outraged over allegations of Chinese military-industrial espionage. Randy says that one of RER's advantages is its location in Wyoming. The Company enjoys strong support from the community and the State, which is crucial as the Company moves through the permitting process: "It's a fabulous place. We have great support in Wyoming. We have moved into the permitting process now. That is a key milestone that should indicate to everybody how much progress we have made, where we are and where will be in another two or three years." Some rare earth industry detractors have argued that there should be no need for additional rare earth processing in North America and that Molycorp, the one active processor today, can stand alone. Randy says that "Molycorp is going to be a fabulous addition to the industry, and we're looking forward to the time when they are very successful...as that would be great for the industry." He went on to say that he sees every indication that demand is going to grow and expects that in the next few years "...when the Company's mine starts to produce meaningful quantities of rare earths, all the forecasts that we've seen indicate that demand is going to continue to grow, especially for magnet materials and heavy rare earths." In that respect, RER will benefit from the fact that its Bear Lodge project is heavily skewed in favor of critical rare earths, "so when we look at the future, we think it looks pretty bright," says Randy. As for the important issue of rare earth processing, Randy says that the results of RER's pilot plant test work and its ability to deliver a 97% + pure rare earth concentrate, results in "a highly desirable product for off-take partners or for processing partnerships and the material is already being tested by the market." As for downstream processing, Randy suggests that the quality of the Company's concentrate "offers serious advantages to a downstream processor" and added, "When we think about that, we ask ourselves whether our shareholders ought not to be able capture some of that downstream value. So we have said, and the Board has agreed, that we will evaluate the possibility of separating our product ourselves." He said that such a facility could potentially be based in Wyoming, but cautioned that the idea is still being evaluated and more technical and economic work will be done in the next few months. Finally, Randy offers his opinion on where rare earth prices are headed. His long experience in the metals industry tells him that "everything cycles." He says he is optimistic that we may well "have seen the bottom of rare earth pricing" and expects the market will continue to search for equilibrium.

Tesla Model 3 Needs More Lithium, Cobalt and Graphite
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog We are in the midst of summer doldrums, volumes are down across the board. Shorts are clearly in charge. Just look at top performing Tesla $TSLA which was taken down on bearish reports indicating potential production shortfalls. Remember the shorts have been squeezed from possibly $50, Tesla recently was trading close to $400 per share so its entitled to a pullback. Tesla may not be able to keep up with production targets if they do not secure supplies of lithium, cobalt and graphite. Most of this supply comes from South American sources which may be sold out past a certain date. Cobalt is coming from Congo where there are concerns of child slave labor in the mining areas. Graphite is mostly imported from China which is sable rattling in the South China Seas and their proxy N. Korea. Lithium and cobalt are in a strong price uptrend. Graphite like rare earths have been manipulated lower by the Chinese to prevent competition from N. American sources. Cobalts is breaking into new multi year highs and is really driving interest in the junior mining sector. I’ve been highlighting LiCo $LIC.V, First Cobalt $FCC.V and Cobalt Power $CPO.V which I own and they are website sponsors. See my recent post on Cobalt Power $CPO.V $CBBWF which has an interview linked with the CEO Dr. Rompel who worked for major mining companies such as Anglo American and Hohschild. Cobalt Power may have one of the first drill results in cobalt sector to announce to public coming out shortly which I am quite excited about. Lico $LIC.V $WCTXF has a lithium project in the Atacama in Chile next to the big boys plus an exciting cobalt property in Ontario which may get some news. Lico has attracted some top notch board members such as former management of companies like BC Hydro and Truegold. First Cobalt $FCC.V $FTSSF is halted as they are merging into possibly the top pure play cobalt player in Canada with an all star roster of mining executives. These three companies above are very active and could announce significant developments concurrently with the Tesla Model 4 release which could be a major disruptor to the automobile industry as the Iphone was to the cell phone industry. We saw it with cell phones and internet, now it is the computerized self driving electric car. I wouldn’t be surprised if all of us are driving electric cars by 2030. As the Tesla Model 3 is released don’t be surprised to see an uptick in interest in the lithium, cobalt and graphite sector. In addition to the Model 3 news, major car companies such as Volvo, Volkswagon and BMW are committed towards electric motors. Volvo wants to be totally electric in two years. This is a huge news item which most investors are ignoring. They need to realize this transition of auto companies could create a major shift in the supply demand curve. Keep a close eye on China and its proxy N. Korea. There is a lot of tension in the South China Seas and this could boil over into the critical rare earths and graphite space needed desperately for renewable clean energy. Remember electric vehicles use a lot of graphite and rare earths. Now is the time to look at the rare earth survivors such as Ucore and Commerce. Notice Quest has gone bankrupt. Molycorp’s Mountain Pass is being stolen by the Chinese right under our noses. This is a travesty. Americans should write to their politicians and state they don’t want their mining and manufacturing industries sent overseas. We can mine rare earths, lithium, graphite and cobalt right here in North America. The rare earth market could bounce after the Molycorp and Quest bankruptcies. Things could get volatile with Trump and international relationships in Asia. Notice the major move in palladium in 2017 yet? Its outperformed mostly all asset classes. Most of that material comes out of Russia. Any good junior palladium explorers you like? Please let me know. Do you have Newrange Gold $NRG.V $CMBPF on your radar yet? They may be on the verge of one of the best high grade gold discoveries in Nevada in many years. Its just beginning to get noticed by investors as many just don’t care in the summer. However, I am quite excited and think you should take notice. Disclosure: I am biased. These companies are website sponsors and I own securities. Owning securities and receiving compensation is a conflict of interest. This contains forward looking statements which may not come to fruition as junior mining is extremely risky. This should be considered an advertisement and not financial advice. Do your own due diligence.

Biggest Mirror Of God- Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia
South East of Bolivia is the location of the biggest Salt Flat in the world, "Uyuni Salt Flat. In a world where the time flies, where people are required to work on a fast speed and stress is more and more common in humans, the choice of where to go gives now priority to places that offered silence and tranquility. In Bolivia, near the border with Chile, there is a small community where the main economic activities apart from llama-herding and quinua-farming, is mining salt. Uyuni Salt Lake is a peculiar place. About 40,000 years ago, this arid area used to be part of a lake that covered a large swath of the Andes. Nowadays it is The World's Biggest Salt Desert. South East of Bolivia is the location of the biggest Salt Flat in the world, "Uyuni Salt Flat". The crust of salt covers a surface of 10.582 Km2. of extension, at an altittude of 3.653 meters above sea level, like a static sea touched by by the southern winds. Like any other desert, the weather conditions in Uyuni Bolivia are extreme, from freezing night temperatures to fierce desert sun. In the Salar itself, you can find several hotels which have been made from salt bricks, including beds, chairs and cocktail bars. All is made from salt! Furthermore, the Salar de Uyuni has impressive views. A flat whiteness, fringed by the peaks of mountains on the horizon beneath a bright blue sky can be admired by tourists. Besides, the silence that one can experience in this region is captivating. Calm and tranquility, not easily found anywhere, characterizes this landscape. As many other parts of South America, this developing area has very little to offer in terms of commodity. However, if you have an adventurous spirit you will be overwhelmed by its natural beauty. lake retba, mount roraima, phytoplankton, lake hillier, socotra island, the great blue hole, salar de uyuni bolivia, best time to visit salar de uyuni bolivia tours, salar de uyuni tours, salar de uyuni, best time to go, salar de uyuni tours cost, salar de uyuni mirror, salar de uyuni facts, salar de uyuni tours from la paz, salar de uyuni weather, salar de uyuni map, beautiful places to see in bolivia, beautiful places to see, amazing places, For more, please log on to : https://www.youtube.com/BeautifulPlacesToSee

8 Incredible Archaeological Discoveries!
Incredible archaeological discoveries! These are some of the most intense ancient archaeological discoveries ever in human history. Today we look at 8 incredible archaeological discoveries. See what unexpected things scientists have found underground. In a dry prehistoric lake bed located near the shore of Lake Vättern in Motala, Sweden lies the Tomb of Sunken Skulls. Discovered in 2009 while excavating in preparation for a new railway to be built, a collection of skulls from 11 individuals were found. Two of these were mounted on stakes. The skulls are 8000 years old. Scientists speculate that the skulls may have been displayed in a kind of burial ritual or alternatively may have been the skulls of enemies that had been killed. Amazingly archaeologists were able to tell that fish was a big part of their diet by analyzing their bone composition. Just think in another 8000 years somebody will be saying wow they ate a lot of big macs. The Grauballe Man, so named because he was found near the village of Grauballe in Denmark, is what’s called a bog body. Bog bodies are human bodies that have been preserved in a peat bog and Peat is dead plant material. Discovered in 1952 the Grauballe Man is one of the most well preserved bog bodies ever with his skin and even his hair and fingernails still intact. Through Radiocarbon dating we know he is over 2000 years old and lived around 300 B.C. Researches believe he may have been the victim of a human sacrifice as his throat looks like it was slit This is the Terracotta Army The army was discovered in 1974 east of the city Xian (shee-ann) China and consists of more than 8000 life-sized Terracotta soldiers. In case you’re wondering what Terracotta is, it’s clay-based and is used for stuff like those brownish orange plant pots. The soldiers were created to protect the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang (Chin shee whuang), in the afterlife. In the 1920s two human skull cups were found and then another in 1987 in Gough’s Cave in Cheddar UK which interestingly is the village that Cheddar cheese is named after, which may permanently change your view of cheddar bowls. The skulls are 14,700 years old. Researchers believe they are skull cups based on what they describe as careful percussional banging with stones all around the edges of the skull. The practice of creating Skull cups is a worldwide phenomenon with accounts of skulls cups used in China, Japan, India, and by Vikings. Is this a new backscratcher from Bed Bath & Beyond finally living up to the last part of their name? In 1986 a team exploring caves at Mount Owen, New Zealand found a mysterious claw while excavating. The claw belonged to a 3000 year old Upland Moa which was a flightless bird. There were 9 known species of Moa birds and unfortunately all Moa’s are now extinct. The upland moa was the last of the Moa to become extinct in the 1500’s from hunting by humans. When humans first came in contact with the moa’s around 1250 the moa population was 58,000, it only took humans 250 years to wipe out a species. Humans can be such dicks sometimes. Is this an alien skull? Perhaps, but scientists believe this skull found in Mexico is a human skull that is the result of a process called artificial cranial deformation. It’s usually done when a child is an infant and the skull is softest and they bind the skull with either wood or cloth for about 6 months. Why they do this, no one really knows, but it is thought that it was a means of signifying status. Even more surprising is the fact that the practice still continues to this day in some places such as Vanuatu which is an island near fiji. However some researchers believed that the elongated skulls actually belong to a race of humans which no longer exists. This is a Chachapoya Mummy. The Chachapoyas were known as the Warriors of the Clouds and lived in what is now Peru. It looks like this person died a truly horrifying death as if screaming and covering their face. However the hands are actually tied to the face and archaeologist suspect that the putting the hands in this configuration was just the easiest way to make the mummy compact and easy to transport. The open mouth is a common phenomenon where unless the jaw is restrained the mouth will slowly open as the body decomposes. Researchers believe that the Chachapoya did not just leave their dead but instead cared for them and possibly re-wrapped them and put them on display. Meet La Doncella (don-saya), which translates to “The Maiden”, who is one of the Children of Llullaillaco (you-ya-yaco). The Children of Llullaillaco are three of the best preserved Inca mummies ever found. They were found by Dr Johan Rienhard and his team in 1999 at the peak of Mount Llullaillaco which is 22,100 feet (6,700 meters) high and located on the border of Chile and Argentina.

Produced in 1948 by Louis De Rochemont Associates, RICHES OF THE VELD is an educational film that gives a rosy portrait of South Africa in the era before apartheid ended. Directed by Bill Colleran, the movie vividly showcases the immense mineral and agricultural wealth of the nation, and includes a visit to the Kimberly Diamond mines. The film features shots of Johannesburg, Kimberly and Cape Town, and also shows a gold refinery and gold mine, vineyards, orange groves, and cattle ranches in the rich Veld. The Veld, also spelled veldt, is a type of wide open rural landscape in Southern Africa. Particularly, it is a flat area covered in grass or low scrub, especially in the countries of South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia. A certain sub-tropical woodland ecoregion of Southern Africa has been officially defined as the Bushveld by the World Wide Fund for Nature. Trees are found only in a few places—frost, fire, and grazing animals allow grass to grow but prevent the growth of trees.

Pyura Chilensis: Strange sea creature looks like "Living Rock" but inside a delicacy in Chile
This rock is actually a bizarre creature- that can breed with itself. From the outside it looks like a grey stone, but if you cut it open there is a mass of blood-red hermaphrodites living inside. The living rock is basically a mass of organs surrounded by a layer of skin and muscle. If you stepped on it you would get a shock as it would burst open and spill the strange creatures, that are considered a delicacy in Central America. Lurking off the coast of Chile and Peru, the creepy creature is called Pyura chilensis – also known as Piure- in Spanish. It belongs to a group of sac-like marine life known as sea squirts. The bizarre animal cannot move and feeds by filtering in seawater and consuming the tiny algae before exhaling it back into the sea. The Pyura chilensis can also mate with itself. It’s born male, becomes hermaphroditic at puberty, and reproduces by tossing clouds of spperm and eggs into the surrounding water in the hope that they will collide. The Piure is known as a tunicate, so-called because it is covered in a layer or 'tunic' - of animal cellulose called tunicin. If they come together they form a 'fertile cloud' which will produce tiny tadpole-like offspring. Chileans eat the blobby animal raw or in stews and it has been described as tasting “bitter”, “soapy” and with an “iodine flavour". The grey bit around the creatures is actually made up of vanadium – a hard, silvery grey metal that occurs naturally in more than 60 different minerals around the world. Weirdly it is also the element used to make alloy steels. Because of its high level of vanadium and the element's toxicity, there are concerns about eating the creature. This flesh is canned or sold as strips and can be eaten raw, or cooked. It is also exported to Sweden and Japan.

What is Copper?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Copper”. Copper is a metal that has been known all around the world since ancient times. From West Africa to China to Europe to Central and South America, copper has been mined and worked continuously from as far back as 8,700 BC. As one of the few independently occurring metals, copper has been used in a multitude of forms, from prehistoric pendants to modern-day piping and more. As a highly versatile material, copper can conduct electricity and is a necessary trace mineral in all living things. It also possesses the ability to destroy germs on contact. Copper is mined in large open pits, and Chile and the U.S. have extensive reserves that could be exhausted within the next 50 years. The New York Mercantile Exchange is where copper contracts are traded, states that copper is the third most widely used metal in the world. Like every commodity, copper has its own ticker symbol, contract value and margin requirements. To successfully trade a commodity, you must be aware of these key components and understand how to use them to calculate your potential profits and loss. Copper is extracted from open pit mines. The demand for copper in India and China plays a significant role in determining when, not if, copper reserves will be depleted. Current copper calculations suggest that the earth will run out of copper in as little as 61 years. Copper is an integral part of printed circuit boards, lead free solder, microwave ovens, wave guides, integrated circuits, electromagnets, wiring and piping. Copper is an industrial metal essential to urban modernization. While countries such as China and India strive to develop a western lifestyle, the need for copper will likely increase at the expense of a dwindling supplies. As alternatives are found to replace copper's applications, the price of copper will continue to be volatile. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy
