    This bridge will take a toll on the faint of heart. The views of rock-strewn mountains covered in lush greenery are spectacular from the 1693 foot crossing, but the see-through metal grid pathway that wobbles with every step might give many walkers pause. The bridge traverses the fast moving River Paiva in the Arouca Geopark, suspended 574 feet above the water. “I was a little afraid, but it was so worth it,” the Arouca resident said on the other side. “It was extraordinary, a unique experience, an adrenaline rush.”

  • Illegal Party of 5,000 Off-Roaders Leads to Absolute Chaos in Arizona National Forest

    Even without a pandemic going on, having a 5,000-person outdoor bash in a national forest is a bad idea. However, that didn't stop Arizona partygoers in their ATVs and 4x4s over the weekend, as FOX10 reports. The Tonto National Forest was flooded with LED light bars, winches, and loud music as the equivalent of an off-road rave took over the protected land. Forest Service authorities say any gathering over 75 people requires a permit—as you probably guessed, it seems like no permit was obtained this time around. Making matters worse and more frustrating for authorities, there were only about 20...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s bid to erect 10 new skyscrapers around Penn Station — including one with the eyebrow-raising name of “PENN 15” — may have shriveled under the state budget deal reached by the governor and legislative leaders on Tuesday. “With a vacancy rate at over 17 percent in Midtown we need to think about creating jobs, not employee office space,” he said.
  • China's Nuclear Weapons Build Up Has the U.S. Military Worried

    Fact: The Chinese have plans to at least double their arsenal by the end of the decade' China's military seems like it is growing in every direction possible. For example, Chinese shipbuilders are adding new aircraft carriers, amphibs and destroyers at an alarming pace. Chinese armored vehicle engineers are fast-adding new infantry carriers and mobile artillery platforms. Chinese weapons developers are adding large numbers of new drones and attack robots. But the largest and potentially most alarming element of all of this, according to many senior U.S. leaders, is the staggering pace at which China is adding nuclear weapons. “A...

    Residents who went online to check the status of their scheduled appointments with Sutter Health said they discovered the cancellations on Wednesday. Some tried furiously and futilely to find another provider. A major Northern California health provider was scrambling Thursday to find enough COVID-19 vaccine to provide second doses for 40,000 people whose appointments were canceled and another 50,000 whose slots were in jeopardy.
  • Average EV Owner Drives Half as Many Miles as Other Drivers—Study

    //www.caranddriver.com ^ | FEB 14, 2021 | Average EV Owner Drives Half as Many Miles as Other Drivers—Study
    Electric-vehicle drivers put about half as many miles on their cars as the average driver. At least, that's what a new study, conducted by researchers working for the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), is estimating. Those results are based on calculations that look at the increase in home energy usage for homes with EVs in California. The study authors did not ask the EV drivers themselves. Nor did they check odometer readings through service records or using other methods. They do admit that getting that kind of information would be best but that these numbers are "within the vehicles...

    Place your virtual, non-monetary bets! This thread has one purpose: Predict the day in Traitor Zhoas administration that the female triumvirate (Feinstein, Pelosi, Heels-up) manages to remove the Pedophile in Chief from power. Rules: 1. Winner is the one who predicts correctly the day the VP takes the oath. 2. Winner is the one who predicts correctly the first day removal is mentioned in the criminal media (FoxNBC, etc). 3. Winner is the one who predicts correctly the day the Cabinet concludes Traitor Zhoa is no longer fit to be President. So there are three winners possible. One could probably...

    South Korea is sending military forces to respond to the seizure of one of its tankers by Iran, an endeavor in which it is seeking to work with other nations operating in the region Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard announced Monday that its Zulfiqar fleet had seized a South Korean vessel operating in the Islamic Republic's First Naval District in the Persian Gulf "due to a series of violations of marine environmental laws" after it departed from Saudi Arabia's Al-Jubail port. The ship, Hankuk Chemi, was said to be transporting up to 7,200 tons of oil-based chemicals, and carrying a crew...

    While the monoliths’ origin has sparked countless theories, from aliens to a marketing ploy, a small community of “stunt artists” have now seemingly claimed responsibility — and are even offering up more… for a hefty $45,000 price. The community of artists known as The Most Famous Artist posted a photo of the monolith on their Instagram account Friday saying only “monolith-at-a-service.com.” The photo of the three-sided metal monolith included specs of the artwork noting: “Authentic dimensions and museum quality materials; edition of 3+1 artist proof; delivery and installation included; Blockchain certification of authenticity, signed and dated ‘The Most Famous Artists...

    Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening. Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent. Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture. As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below. Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. Sister Barbara," on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention, and tossed it out the window to him. The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went...

  • Scientists Have Found The Molecule That Allows Bacteria to 'Exhale' Electricity

    For mouthless, lungless bacteria, breathing is a bit more complicated than it is for humans. We inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide; Geobacter - a ubiquitous, groundwater-dwelling genus of bacteria - swallow up organic waste and 'exhale' electrons, generating a tiny electric current in the process. Those waste electrons always need somewhere to go (usually into a plentiful underground mineral like iron oxide), and Geobacter have an unconventional tool to make sure they get there. "Geobacter breathe through what is essentially a giant snorkel, hundreds of times their size," Nikhil Malvankar, an assistant professor at Yale University's Microbial Science Institute...

    What attack? Why do you keep calling it an “attack?” If someone violates your rights and you fear for your life, it’s not an attack. You know how white women are. I figured she was about to call the park police on one of my fellow activists and I feared for our lives. I didn’t even use excessive force. I just took off her pants! Well, it all started as a peaceful protests against the people who were attending the Sturgis Biker Rally. We have been mistreated for centuries but, every year, five hundred thousand bikers come into our neighborhood...

    No dancing at bars. No darts. No karaoke. So orders Gov. Andrew Cuomo, adding to his “order food, not just alcohol” mandate in what sure looks like an all-out war on fun. Heck, the Great Drinktator has also banned comedy shows. You can’t have people guffawing into their face masks despite practicing social distancing. The gov has even used his emergency powers to ban dancing at wedding receptions. This when New York hasn’t just flattened the curve, but crushed it — with new coronavirus cases and deaths at ever-lower levels. As Karol Markowicz writes in Monday’s Post, these lockdown rules...
