Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grass Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Grasses, or more technically graminoids, are monocotyledonous, usually herbaceous plants with narrow leaves growing from the base. They include the "true grasses", of the Poaceae (or Gramineae) family, as well as the sedges (Cyperaceae) and the rushes (Juncaceae). The true grasses include cereals, bamboo and the grasses of lawns (turf) and grassland. Sedges include many wild marsh and grassland plants, and some cultivated ones such as water chestnut (Eleocharis dulcis) and papyrus sedge (Cyperus papyrus). Uses for graminoids include food (as grain, sprouted grain, shoots or rhizomes), drink (beer, whisky, vodka), pasture for livestock, thatch, paper, fuel, clothing, insulation, construction, sports turf, basket weaving and many others... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hay Hay is grass, legumes or other herbaceous plants that have been cut, dried, and stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for grazing livestock such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep. Hay is also fed to pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Pigs may be fed hay, but they do not digest it as efficiently as more fully herbivorous animals. Hay is fed when or where there is not enough pasture or rangeland on which to graze an animal, when grazing is unavailable due to weather (such as during the winter) or when lush pasture by itself is too rich for the health of the animal. It is also fed during times when an animal is unable to access pasture, such as when animals are kept in a stable or barn... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattle_feeding Different cattle feeding production systems have separate advantages and disadvantages. Most cows have a diet that is composed of at least some forage (grass, legumes, or silage). In fact most beef cattle are raised on pasture from birth in the spring until autumn (7 to 9 months). Then for pasture-fed animals, grass is the forage that composes all or at least the great majority of their diet. Cattle fattened in feedlots are fed small amounts of hay or straw supplemented with grain, soy and other ingredients in order to increase the energy density of the diet. The debate is whether cattle should be raised on diets primarily composed of pasture (grass) or a concentrated diet of grain, soy, corn and other supplements. The issue is often complicated by the political interests and confusion between labels such as "free range", "organic", or "natural". Cattle raised on a primarily forage diet are termed grass-fed or pasture-raised; for example meat or milk may be called grass-fed beef or pasture-raised dairy. However, the term "pasture-raised" can lead to confusion with the term "free range", which does not describe exactly what the animals eat... Grass fed or pasture-fed cattle, grass and other forage compose most all or at least the great majority of the grass fed diet. The debate is whether cattle should be raised on diets primarily composed of pasture (grass) or a concentrated diet of grain, soy and other supplements... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allis-Chalmers Allis-Chalmers was a U.S. manufacturer of machinery for various industries.

Presented by Allis-Chalmers (a US manufacturer of machinery), “Crawler Tractors in Action” takes its viewers on a detailed visual tour of earth-moving machines. The mid-1950s film kicks off with a look at horse-drawn scrapers and turn-of-the-century tractors, which helped kicked off a new era in road and building construction, as well as logging and mining operations. Flash forward to modern day and the viewer sees the current version of a crawler tractor at mark 02:00, which range from six tons to 21 tons. (A crawler tractor a continuous band of treads or track plates is driven by two or more wheels.) Starting at mark 02:30, the viewer sees the roll crawler tractors played in the construction of Illinois Tollway System in the 1950s and the construction of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado, as we see Secretary of the Air Force Donald Quarles at mark 05:22. The film also shows crawler tractors in action clearing debris from a Kansas City slum, working on conservation project the Ute Indian Reservation in Colorado, and at mark 07:18 constructing the St. Lawrence Seaway. As the film progresses, we see them at work clearing timber from forests, working in rail yards, and laying pipeline in the Pacific Northwest. Showing crawler tractors are suited for any environment, the viewer is shown a snowy field in Colorado at mark 12:20 as the machine clears snow from an irrigation ditch, and later moves trash along in a landfill. “These ingenious crawler tractors, basic to the earth-moving and construction ambitions of man have contributed to the realization of our dreams,” says the narrator in conclusion. Allis-Chalmers was a U.S. manufacturer of machinery for various industries. Its business lines included agricultural equipment, construction equipment, power generation and power transmission equipment, and machinery for use in industrial settings such as factories, flour mills, sawmills, textile mills, steel mills, refineries, mines, and ore mills. The first Allis-Chalmers Company was formed in 1901 as an amalgamation of the Edward P. Allis Company (steam engines and mill equipment), Fraser & Chalmers (mining and ore milling equipment), the Gates Iron Works (rock and cement milling equipment), and the industrial business line of the Dickson Manufacturing Company (engines and compressors). It was reorganized in 1912 as the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company. During the next 70 years its industrial machinery filled countless mills, mines, and factories around the world, and its brand gained fame among consumers mostly from its farm equipment business's orange tractors and silver combine harvesters. In the 1980s and 1990s a series of divestitures transformed the firm and eventually dissolved it. Its successors today are Allis-Chalmers Energy and AGCO.

How to design a successful logo? How to build a famous brand for your business? Some of the most well-known logos in the world were purposefully designed to indicate something much more than simple beauty. In fact, it seems that in some cases, every line, curve, and color has meaning behind it. Adidas, Apple, BMW, Coca-Cola, Toyota… We see these famous brands everywhere but never consider what their logos exactly mean. Curious to know the secret? Watch the 16 famous logos with a hidden meaning you've never noticed. #logomeaning #logosecret # Hyundai 0:33 The letter ’Н’ symbolizes two people – a client and a representative of the company – shaking hands. Adidas 0:52 The current logo is three stripes at an angle which together form a triangle. This symbolizes a mountain, which in turn represents the challenges that all sportsmen have to overcome day after day. Apple 1:21 Rob Janoff, the designer who came up with the world-famous Apple company logo, explained his idea in one of his interviews. He bought a bag of apples, placed them in a bowl, and spent time drawing them for a week, trying to break the image down into something simple. Vaio 1:58 The first two letters of the Vaio logo symbolize an analogue wave. The last two are similar to the numbers 1 and 0 — that is, symbols of a digital signal. Amazon 2:14 The orange arrow is similar to a smile because the company wants its customers to be satisfied. The arrow is also stretched between the letters ’A’ and ’Z’, in a hint that the company sells absolutely every product you can imagine. Baskin Robbins 2:40 The pink-colored parts of the "BR" section make up the number 31, which is how many ice cream flavors Baskin Robbins used to famously sell. Toyota 2:56 The logo represents a stylized image of a needle eye with a thread passing through it. This is a hint at the company’s past – they used to produce weaving machines. Continental 3:28 Continental, a famous car tire producer, has a logo in which the first two letters depict a car wheel. Formula 1 3:41 If you look carefully at the white space between the letter ’F’ and the red stripes, you can see the number 1. Pinterest 3:59 On Pinterest, people collect images they like from across the Internet and ’pin’ them to their online boards. That’s why the image of a pin is hidden in the letter P. Beats 4:17 Beats, an audio equipment producer based in the USA, uses a logo in which the letter ’B’ looks like headphones on a person’s head. Toblerone 4:32 The famous chocolate company based in Bern, Switzerland, has a silhouette of a bear in its logo. That's because Bern is sometimes called a city of bears. BMW 4:55 The logo is simply a part of the Bavarian flag, the area of Germany where the company originated. LG 5:18 The logo is a stylized image of a person’s face. According to the company, this represents its aspiration to have human relations with their customers. Evernote 5:34 The corner of the elephant’s ear is folded over in a similar way how people fold the corner of a page to make notes. Coca-Cola 5:57 In the space between the letters ’O’ and ’L’, you can see the Danish flag. It’s purely a coincidence. Nevertheless, Coca-Cola has used this as part of its marketing campaigns in the Scandinavian country. If you’ve enjoyed this video, hit that thumbs up button!

This is the first Youtube video on you and the Centralia, PA Fire, which has been burning since 1962. If this borough of Pennsylvania looks familiar, that's because it was the inspiration for Silent Hill, a psychological horror video game based on an abandoned community, which had been consumed by a malevolent force. The mining of coal was effectively finished in the borough, for more than three decades, before the fire department, accidentally ignited the Centralia fire. All of their mining companies had gone out of business in 1929, after the crash of the New York stock exchange. By the time the Great Depression was over, gasoline and other fuels, had already replaced, the widespread use of coal. The town dump was conveniently located in the heart of the borough of Centralia, adjacent to the cemetery of the church of Saint Ignatius. It was convenient except in springtime, when the Memorial Day parade would march down Main Street, and every participant taking that route, would be treated to a full view of the dump. That is why the local fire department was given the annual job, of burning off the trash, before the end of May. The dump was also the site of one of the old mining tunnels, and when the controlled burn of 1962, was not properly extinguished by the firemen, it spread to an underground vein of anthracite coal, a vein which everyone thought was played out. Anthracite burns hot and slow. They tried to extinguish the embers using sand. They tried to smother it with ash. Thousands of gallons of water were poured into the tunnel, with no success. They dug one enormous trench to act as a firewall, but the combustion was already too far spread undergound. Then they ran out of money. The coal fire advanced so slowly that it was barely perceptible for almost two decades, except for the occasional plume of poisonous smoke rising from the ground. Then in 1979 the owner of the local gas station, John Coddington, was measuring the level of fuel in the tank buried on the property. After extracting the long measuring stick, he noticed it was quite warm to the touch. Coddington, using a thermometer tied to the end of a piece of twine, measured the temperature of the gasoline. It was one hundred and seventy degrees fahrenheit. The temperature at which he had been pumping gas, into the cars of his customers, was only one hundred and thirty degrees. There was no threat to life until two years later, when twelve year old Todd Domboski, was playing in his grandmother's back yard. While investigating a wisp of smoke, rising from the ground near a black walnut tree, a fifty foot chasm opened suddenly beneath him. He fell in, and his head was below the surface, but he was able to grab onto the roots of the tree, and he cried for help. His cousin Eric could hear him yelling, but could not determine from which direction came the calls... until from the crest of a hill, he saw a bright orange hunting hat, still perched on top of Todd's head. Eric pulled his cousin to safety. The bottom of the pit was later measured at 600 degerees fahrenheit, and the level of carbon monoxide was so high, that it would have meant the end, for Todd Domboski. Pennsylvania state government in 1992, decreed the town evacuation was no longer voluntary, but mandatory. The highway which ran through the borough, Route 61, had been a main artery of statewide travel since Pennsylvania was founded. But the Centralia section of the highway was plagued with fissures, from which sulfurous gases belched. Now it was abandoned, and a permanent detour was built for Route 61. Today in the borough, a population of two thousand has dwindled to only seven. The few houses still standing require special chimneys, to vent the noxious fumes from underground. Corruption is suspected of the state government which condemned the borough of Centralia. It may have been complicit in a fraud, allegedly perpetrated by the business interests, which would ultimately re-purchase the mining rights for the entire area. There are other veins of coal here, deeper veins, worth many billions of dollars today. No expert testimony on the fire was ever sought by the state, before they condemned this town, using the power of eminent domain. MAY I INTEREST YOU IN SUBSCRIBING TO THIS CHANNEL? IT'S FREE!

This promotional film for Allis Chalmers' new M100 Motor Grader likely dates to the early 1960s. The 167hp engine and high clearances offered by this machine were touted by AC in the film, which was called the "most productive motor grader in its class". The company hoped that the M100 and its rollaway blade design would represent a new standard in the construction industry. Its design also offered high visibility and ground-hugging stability. Surprisingly, this version of the M-100 is shown without a protective cab, a safety consideration for this type of equipment. Allis-Chalmers was a U.S. manufacturer of machinery for various industries. Its business lines included agricultural equipment, construction equipment, power generation and power transmission equipment, and machinery for use in industrial settings such as factories, flour mills, sawmills, textile mills, steel mills, refineries, mines, and ore mills. The first Allis-Chalmers Company was formed in 1901 as an amalgamation of the Edward P. Allis Company (steam engines and mill equipment), Fraser & Chalmers (mining and ore milling equipment), the Gates Iron Works (rock and cement milling equipment), and the industrial business line of the Dickson Manufacturing Company (engines and compressors). It was reorganized in 1912 as the Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company. During the next 70 years its industrial machinery filled countless mills, mines, and factories around the world, and its brand gained fame among consumers mostly from its farm equipment business's orange tractors and silver combine harvesters. In the 1980s and 1990s a series of divestitures transformed the firm and eventually dissolved it. Its successors today are Allis-Chalmers Energy and AGCO. A grader, also commonly referred to as a road grader or a motor grader, is a construction machine with a long blade used to create a flat surface during the grading process. Typical models have three axles, with the engine and cab situated above the rear axles at one end of the vehicle and a third axle at the front end of the vehicle, with the blade in between. In certain countries, for example in Finland, almost every grader is equipped with a second blade that is placed in front of the front axle. Some construction personnel refer to the entire machine as "the blade". Capacities range from a blade width of 2.50 to 7.30 m and engines from 93–373 kW (125–500 hp). Certain graders can operate multiple attachments, or be used for separate tasks like underground mining. In civil engineering, the grader's purpose is to "finish grade" (to refine or set precisely). The "rough grading" is performed by heavy equipment or engineering vehicles such as scrapers and bulldozers. Graders are commonly used in the construction and maintenance of dirt roads and gravel roads. In the construction of paved roads they are used to prepare the base course to create a wide flat surface upon which to place the asphalt. Graders are also used to set native soil foundation pads to finish grade prior to the construction of large buildings. Graders can produce inclined surfaces, to give cant (camber) to roads. In some countries they are used to produce drainage ditches with shallow V-shaped cross-sections on either side of highways.

As the sign says this water is not fit for drinking or swimming. Only a solitary gull braves the polluted waters. But the problem isn t confined to the waters of the lake. When it rains here in Tudor Shaft a Johannesburg township named after the nearby mine shaft the streets pool with orange water that smells of vinegar. It s seeping from abandoned mines. Locals say the water is contaminated with radioactive minerals used in the mining process and has wiped out all aquatic life in a nearby river. Increasingly South Africans are worried about the risks contaminated water from mining poses to the rest of Johannesburg built over one of the largest gold mining bases in the world. The environmental cost of South Africa s lucrative export is weighing on impoverished communities many sitting on abandoned mines on the outskirts of the city. And wealthy mining companies have shown little inclination to take responsibility. A man stirs lunch - cornmeal porridge - in an immaculate shack. The small front yard is lined with pebbles covering the soil. Outside in the yard children run barefoot their feet tinted orange. 35-year-old Patrick Mkoyo says his children sometimes come home with rashes or difficulty breathing. They are not OK here but I don t have a choice I have no other place to stay he says. I m worried about my children. He says his doctors say they don t know what is causing the medical problems. In December Professor Chris Busby from Ireland s University of Ulster tested the soil around Mkoyo s shack and found it contained at least 32 times the amount of government-set acceptable radioactivity levels. Busby prepared the report for Johannesburg-based Federation for Sustainable Environment a private group working to bring the toxic water issue to the attention of the government and its citizens. The dangerous mining residue reaches people in two steps To reach the precious minerals at the bottom of a mining basin - a bowl containing water and minerals - miners pump out the water. Gold is then extracted and the remaining rock which contains traces of uranium is dumped onto waste piles. Over time the uranium reacts with oxygen from the atmosphere and this radioactive substance builds according to mineral geochemistry professors at Johannesburg s University of Witwatersrand. Once mining is finished rainwater accumulates in abandoned mine dumps eventually causing mining basins - huge bowls in the earth containing water and minerals - to overflow flushing the uranium and other substances into the ground and river systems. One mining basin in western Johannesburg has already flooded and one of the next basins to flood experts say will be under Johannesburg s city centre. Toxic mine water is entering rivers and communities at an increasing rate particularly with heavy rain in recent months and its consequences are devastating says Mariette Liefferink chief executive of the Federation for Sustainable Environment.

Made in 1957 by Union Carbide & Carbon company, PETRIFIED RIVER describes the modern romance of the present-day West in the search for uranium. It shows modern uranium prospecting, including prospecting by airplane, as well as mining in the Colorado Plateau. It also discusses the uses of radioactive isotopes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Uranium is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-white metal in the actinide series of the periodic table. A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence electrons. Uranium is weakly radioactive because all its isotopes are unstable (with half-lives of the 6 naturally known isotopes, uranium-233 to uranium-238, varying between 69 years and 4.5 billion years). The most common isotopes of uranium are uranium-238 (which has 146 neutrons and accounts for almost 99.3% of the uranium found in nature) and uranium-235 (which has 143 neutrons, accounting for 0.7% of the element found naturally). Uranium has the second highest atomic weight of the primordially occurring elements, lighter only than plutonium. Its density is about 70% higher than that of lead, but slightly lower than that of gold or tungsten. It occurs naturally in low concentrations of a few parts per million in soil, rock and water, and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals such as uraninite. In nature, uranium is found as uranium-238 (99.2739–99.2752%), uranium-235 (0.7198–0.7202%), and a very small amount of uranium-234 (0.0050–0.0059%). Uranium decays slowly by emitting an alpha particle. The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years,making them useful in dating the age of the Earth. Many contemporary uses of uranium exploit its unique nuclear properties. Uranium-235 has the distinction of being the only naturally occurring fissile isotope. Uranium-238 is fissionable by fast neutrons, and is fertile, meaning it can be transmuted to fissile plutonium-239 in a nuclear reactor. Another fissile isotope, uranium-233, can be produced from natural thorium and is also important in nuclear technology. While uranium-238 has a small probability for spontaneous fission or even induced fission with fast neutrons, uranium-235 and to a lesser degree uranium-233 have a much higher fission cross-section for slow neutrons. In sufficient concentration, these isotopes maintain a sustained nuclear chain reaction. This generates the heat in nuclear power reactors, and produces the fissile material for nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium (238U) is used in kinetic energy penetrators and armor plating. Uranium is used as a colorant in uranium glass producing orange-red to lemon yellow hues. It was also used for tinting and shading in early photography. The 1789 discovery of uranium in the mineral pitchblende is credited to Martin Heinrich Klaproth, who named the new element after the planet Uranus. Eugène-Melchior Péligot was the first person to isolate the metal and its radioactive properties were discovered in 1896 by Henri Becquerel. Research by Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Enrico Fermi and others, such as J. Robert Oppenheimer starting in 1934 led to its use as a fuel in the nuclear power industry and in Little Boy, the first nuclear weapon used in war. An ensuing arms race during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union produced tens of thousands of nuclear weapons that used uranium metal and uranium-derived plutonium-239. The security of those weapons and their fissile material following the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 is an ongoing concern for public health and safety.

Development of shale gas by hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is opposed by campaigners who hypothesise (amongst other things) that potable ground water supplies could be polluted by upward migration of fractures and any fluids they contain. There are very strong reasons for doubting this hypothesis, not least because migration of fractures to prolific aquifers would be highly unlikely to lead to pollution, but almost certain to result in drowning of the shale gas wells, rendering them unusable. Hence, despite having contrasting motivations, shale gas developers and environmental guardians turn out to have a strong common interest in avoiding inter-connection to aquifers. There is in fact a century-long analogue for such a ‘confluence’ of interests, provided by the history of longwall coal mining beneath the sea and major aquifers. Where large-scale mining proceeded from the surface downwards, major hydraulic inter-connection of shallow and deep zones did indeed result in widespread water pollution. However, where new mines were developed at depth without any connections to shallow old workings), complete hydraulic isolation from the near-surface hydrogeological environment was successfully maintained. This was despite the fact that longwall mining produced far greater stratal disruption than shale gas fracking ever could. A detailed example is presented from the successful operation of the Selby Coalfield beneath one of the UK’s main aquifers. This profound and sustained historical analogue provides a very clear lesson: given the lack of hydrogeological connectivity to shallow aquifers, shale gas fracking per se cannot contaminate shallow ground water. Provided operators observe long-established laws governing hydrocarbon wells and associated surface operations, other hydrogeological risks will also be minimal. Opponents of shale gas developments should therefore focus attention on more realistic potential impacts, most of which are familiar from almost any planning application, such as increased truck traffic on minor roads.

With shocking evidence now uncovered, Zimbabwe's diamond trade faces suspension. "We were told here are the guns, sitting in the truck, do you want to stay?" says Andrew Cranswick, CEO of the mining company who owns the rights to mine diamonds in Marange. After his company was evicted, the Marange fields were opened up to the people and tens of thousands of Zimbabweans came to dig, paying the police a commission. Yet the police didn't always play fair - "$15 million worth of diamonds were confiscated", says one former miner and soon the police were replaced by Mugabes own military. "Mugabe needed a way to buy the loyalty of the army" says Ken Roth, "the military were ordered to kill". In the first week of November, helicopter gunships launched a massacre on the Marange diamond fields. Evidence has been collected of 200 deaths. Those who weren't killed were raped or crippled. "They told us if we wanted to go home we had to sleep with the men", says one woman, "the soldiers watched and laughed". Next month, the Kimberley process, the international body charged with stopping trade in conflict diamonds, will decide whether Zimbabwe should be suspended. Yet with many Western governments involved in Zimbabwe's diamond trade, a former delegate of the Kimberley process believes this deadly business may yet be protected.

The Montezuma mine was originally located in 1878, near the apex of the lode that would be come to be known as the Smuggler Lode. By 1884 the mine had been producing thousands of tons of silver and lead ore along with a lot of gold. Old historical documents show that the gold was processed at the lower or 6th level as they shipped all of the silver and lead down to be smelted in Leadville. Somewhere around 1896-7, a larger mining company began digging in near the river following placer gold and silver bits. They called this mine the Carribeau, named for a lake or sea in Europe. They worked in and hit the Smuggler vein at a lower instance. Unlike the upper mine, these claimants immediately patented the property once they were producing ores. Around 1900, the Carribeau, working up, intersected with the Montezuma as they worked down. The details are unknown, but the Carribeau sold out their interest to the Montezuma. Law had already established ownership of lodes at the apex of the vein. With that in place they would not have legally held the mine for long. On or around 1901, the unpatented Montezuma was sold along with the Carribeau (now known as the 13th level) to some investors from Boston for $350,000.00, in 2014 figures that is equal to $9,649,437.26. This was not wasted money, the mine was noted for expansive reserves of gold, silver and lead. The new company installed a double battery of stamp mills and began pushing all of the ores out to the 13th level and processing at that point. The mine kept working under a few various entities until 1936, still shipping ore, when the economic crisis brought on by the rise of Nazi Germany and the anti-mining rhetoric from FDR caused what was thought to be a temporary closure. The Montezuma Mine has a documented 12.8 miles of drifts, raises, winzes and cross-cuts. This was a gold mine, the silver was ancillary. Between 1881 and 1913 the mine recovered an estimated 50,000 ounces of gold, it's one of the reasons it never slowed down even with the silver crash in 1893.

California Mining operations at Dutch Flat reached their peak during the 1870s, with thousands of miners working the surrounding area. Prior to the 1870s, gold mining was often a solitary and small-scale pursuit. In 1872, however, the Cedar Creek Company of London purchased over 30 claims in the area and began working them in a more aggressive and industrial fashion, employing hydraulic mining to reach hitherto unreachable deposits of gold by literally blasting it out of alluvial deposits with high-pressure water cannons known as “monitors.” The many dozens of mining claims dividing the old channel gravels beside Dutch Flat and Gold Run made for a thriving economy. In January 1884, however, in a historic verdict, a United States District Court banned the flushing of debris into streams. Implementing the decision was difficult, as many miners refused to accept the court decision. Court challenges were filed, injunctions were disobeyed, inspectors were threatened with violence, but eventually hydraulic operations were brought to an end.

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.

MAPS & INFO: https://hikingguy.com/hiking-trails/hiking-orange-county/black-star-canyon-hike/ The Black Star Canyon hike is a local favorite for a reason. The hike follows Black Star Creek to Black Star Canyon Falls, and there's even a haunted history to ponder as you hike through this beautiful part of Black Star Canyon Wilderness Park. • There are really two parts of this hike up Black Star Canyon. The first half is on dirt roads and is very easy. The second half follows Black Star Creek and is much slower going. Toward the end of the hike, you have to pull yourself up some rocks and boulders. It's doable, but slow going. The second half is definitely not a traditional trail hike. • If it's raining out when you do this, expect to go through some water as you hike up along the stream bed. You will get wet. • The falls don't always have water coming down them. Your best chance is after a heavy rain, but it's still hit or miss. Either way, it's a fun hike, so don't let that stop you. • There's poison oak along the Black Star Creek portion of the hike. • Keep you're eyes and ears open for mountain bikers on the first half of the hike. • I've seen plenty of people with dogs on this hike, but they'll have to get up and down the boulders too. They should be comfortable jumping up and down, or you should be prepared to carry and lift them. • The Black Star Canyon hike is popular with locals, so don't be surprised if you get to the falls and encounter kids playing music from a bluetooth speaker, smoking cigarettes, and drinking beer. It's not a dangerous hike in that way, but the crowd can be mixed. Some people love the hike, others hate it. • This area was the original home of the Tongva peoples, and there are signs of their habitation, such as the 'pothole' grinding rocks, in the area (although I have yet to spot any). • In 1831, William Wolfskill led a group of fur trappers to Black Star Canyon in search of their stolen horses. Finding the horses with the Tongva in Black Star Canyon, the trappers massacred the Tongva in a "rifles versus bow-and-arrow" battle. William Wolfskill went on to become one of the wealthiest men in America, credited with starting the citrus industry, inventing the Valencia Orange, and producing 50,000 gallons of wine a year. • In 1899 Black Star Canyon was the scene of another murder, this time as a result of friction between Mexican and Anglo-American homesteaders. All of these killings have given Black Star Canyon the reputation for being haunted. • Black Star Canyon used to be home to numerous grizzly bears, all of which were killed off in California, with the last one being spotted in 1924 at Sequoia National Park. Even though the grizzly is no longer in California, we still have it on the state flag and California's state animal is the grizzly. You won't see any bears on this hike today, but you might spot some rabbits or squirrels. • Since this spot is popular with local teens over the years, Black Star Canyon has a reputation for evil sprits, satanic cult meetings, shadows that follow you, KKK meetings, a crazy homeless guy named Black Star Bill, and locals who will shoot at you. After having done this hike numerous times, I can safely say that I encountered none of those things. Just stay on the well-marked trail for the first part of the hike, avoiding the fenced off private property, and you should be fine. • The canyon is named after the Black Star Coal Mining Company, which opened a mine at the mouth of the canyon in 1877, but shut down in the early 1900s. The lower tunnel in the falls is actually an old mine shaft.

Some might even be tempted to give up on a partner because they weren’t the same person anymore. For instance, when this woman suffered horrendous third-degree burns, it would change her life completely. But rather than bailing, her partner had the most touching thing to say. Turia Pitt was born in the South Pacific island of Tahiti in the 1980s. Her surf-loving Australian dad had moved there when he fell in love with its waves. And there he also fell in love with the woman who would become Pitt’s mom. Then, he would return to Australia with his new family when Pitt was three. --------------------------------------------------------- ►Article link:https://goo.gl/zMuXt6 --------------------------------------------------------- As Pitt grew up, a bright future opened up ahead of her. She had earned, with honors, a double degree in mining engineering and science at the University of New South Wales. In fact, she was working as a model when she got a call from mining company Rio Tinto offering her a job. Not wanting to miss the opportunity of her dream job, Pitt relocated to Kununurra in western Australia with her longtime boyfriend, Michael Hoskin. With a great new job and a supportive boyfriend, Pitt had a lot going for her.

It is a normal hygienic procedure to clean our ears once every few days. However, not all of us know that ear wax can also indicate the state of our health. With the help of a Q-tip, you can check the color of your ear wax and understand what it means. TIMESTAMPS What do we know about the human ear? 0:35 Ear wax of a gray color 1:28 Ear wax with traces of blood 2:09 Ear wax of a brown color 3:02 Ear wax of a black color 3:40 Ear wax of a white color 4:25 Ear wax with an unpleasant smell 5:14 Liquid ear wax 6:03 Dry earwax 6:36 See a doctor if you have the following symptoms 7:06 What you shouldn't do to avoid any problems 8:14 Three most interesting facts about your ears 8:47 SUMMARY Ear wax is not a body waste to get rid of regularly, quite the contrary - it's a kind of protection. It keeps the ear canal lubricated, therefore, prevents the ears from itching. Moreover, it prevents different pollutants from entering the inner ear. Even more surprisingly, this substance has antibacterial properties. Our body is a clever mechanism. Did you know that when we chew, the movement pushes ear wax to the outer part of the ear? This way, your ears self-clean! If your ears tend to produce a big amount of ear wax creating a build-up, you can take some preventive measures yourself. - It's effective to use agents softening the wax. They can be mineral or baby oil, or ear drops. It is enough to put a few drops of these substances into your ear once a week to soften the ear wax and help it to come out faster and with ease. - Another way to take care of your ears is to buy a special at-home kit for their irrigation.

The Quincy Mine was founded in 1846 by the merger of the Northwest Mining Company and the Portage Mining Company. Due to poor communication between government offices, these two speculative mining companies had purchased the same tracts of land during the mining rush of the early 1840s. The directors met and decided to merge, with significant investment coming from Massachusetts (the town of Quincy, Massachusetts lent the mine its name). While many other copper mines were founded at the same time, the Quincy Mine became the most successful of the 1840s-era mines, and was the country's leading copper-producing mine from 1863 (when it exceeded the production of the Minesota Mine) through 1867 (after which it was exceeded by the Calumet and Hecla). The mine was the first Michigan copper mine to switch from fissure mining to amygdaloid mining, when the recently discovered Pewabic amygdaloid lode was found to cross Quincy property in 1856. High-grade fissure veins contained large, pure masses of copper, but the masses could take days or even months to extract, at high cost. Amygdaloid mining consisted of extracting lower-grade strataform orebodies in the "amygdaloid zones," the upper portions of basalt lava flows. Rock bearing small pockets of copper could be blasted out immediately and processed elsewhere at much lower cost. Amygdaloid mining proved much more productive than fissure mining, and the size and richness of the Pewabic lode in particular allowed the Quincy to produce profits for 53 consecutive years. The Quincy company expanded laterally along the lode by buying out adjacent properties. The company bought the Pewabic mine in 1891, the Mesnard and the Pontiac in 1897, and the Franklin mine in 1908. This helped the mine survive longer than almost all other Keweenaw copper mining companies, except the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company and the Copper Range Company. To attract a better class of worker, the Quincy Mining Company built and maintained housing for the workers. Over the course of operations, the types of housing ranged from simple tents in the early days, to complete three story houses shortly before the mine's shutdown. The executives on the east coast wanted to build more elaborate and fancy homes with amenities such as electricity and running water. However, the on-site managers didn't think it was necessary for the miners to have such high-class dwellings. But the east coast executives realized that if they offered nicer homes to the workers, the miners were more likely to stay, raise families, and be less likely to leave the area or transfer to another mining company. This strategy proved effective and helped the Quincy Mining Company retain its status as one of the premier mining companies in the region. The Quincy Mining Company closed operations (but did not dissolve) in 1931 due to low copper prices. During World War II, the mines re-opened due to increased copper demand. When the government stopped supporting copper prices after the war, the mines quickly closed for good.

Do you enjoy relaxing videos and music? Then you may enjoy this video, shot ON LOCATION by UFO BOB at Black Star Canyon. Named after the Black Star Coal Mining Company, which operated in the 1800s, it's located in eastern Orange County, California. This remote mountain canyon is a watershed of the Santa Ana River, and it's rugged and wild scenery is spectacular, making it popular with hikers and mountain bikers alike. Accessible year-round, the trail is approximately 7 miles in length, and features a waterfall for those willing to make the complete hike. But beware! Reaching the waterfall is not for the faint of heart; you'll notice I didn't go that far. Actually, I plan to make the full hike next spring, right after the rains; that's when the the waterfall is best viewed. Hiking and biking trails can be reached by taking Santiago Canyon Road to Silverado Canyon Road, then turning left onto Black Star Canyon Road. Roadside dirt parking is available.

Then I come home and edit them to music that suits the scenes shot on location. In most cases, I shoot using a Canon 80D, a Tokina 11-16mm lens and a Slik tripod. On occasion, I also use a Canon 18-135mm lens and a GoPro Hero Black. Posting Schedule: Every Wednesday and Saturday morning by 4 AM Pacific Standard Time. I hope you'll join me often.

He says that building on the C$26mln it currently has in the bank will give the Zimbabwe-based gold producer the flexibility to make acquisitions "when opportunities arise". Learmonth talks more about asset management firm Allan Gray, which recently took a 12.25% stake in the company.

In fact, it seems that in some cases, every line, curve and color has meaning behind it. Here are 17 famous logos with hidden meanings that we never noticed before. Fascinating! 17. Hyundai Many people are inclined to think that the logo of the South Korean conglomerate Hyundai is simply the first letter of its name. But actually, the letter ’Н’ symbolises two people (a client and a representative of the company) shaking hands. 16. Adidas The name Adidas is derived from that of its founder, Adolf Dassler. The company’s logo has changed over time, but it’s always included three stripes. The current configuration is three stripes at an angle which together form a triangle. This symbolises a mountain, which in turn represents the challenges which all athletes have to overcome. 15. Apple Rob Yanov, the designer who created with the world-famous Apple company logo, has explained how he came up with the idea: ’I bought a whole bag of apples, placed them in a bowl, and spent time drawing them for a week, trying to break the image down into something simple. Taking a bite out of an apple was part of the experiment, and completely by coincidence I realised that ’bite’ sounded exactly the same as the computer term ’byte’. 14. Sony Vaio The first two letters of the logo of Sony Vaio make up a wave, which represents an analogue symbol, whereas the last two are similar to the numbers 1 and 0 — that is, symbols of a digital signal. 13. Amazon At first glance, Amazon’s logo appears to be nothing special. But it was designed with the philosophy of the company in mind. The orange arrow is similar to a smile, as the company wants its customers to be satisfied. The arrow is also stretched between the letters ’A’ and ’Z’, in a hint that the company sells absolutely every product imaginable (’from A to Z’). 12. Baskin-Robbins The pink-colored areas of the "BR" part of the logo here make up the number 31, which is the number of different flavors of ice cream that Baskin-Robbins used to famously sell. 11. Toyota Many people have compared the logo of the Japanese car-producer Toyota to the image of a cowboy wearing a stereotypical hat. But it actually represents a stylised image of the eye of a needle with a thread passed through it. This is a hint at the company’s past — of a time when it used to produce weaving machines. At the same time, the individual parts of the logo also spell out the letters of the company’s name. 8. Pinterest The logo of the popular internet site Pinterest, which people use to collect images they like from across net and ’pin’ them to their online notice board, has the image of a pin hidden in the letter P. 6. Toblerone Toblerone, the famous chocolate company based in Bern, Switzerland, includes a silhouette of a bear in its logo, on account of the fact that Bern is sometimes called a city of bears. 5. BMW It’s often supposed that the central part of the BMW logo symbolizes the rotating blades of an airplane, in line with the company’s early history of aviation technology, but it is in fact simply a part of the Bavarian flag — the area of Germany where the company originated. 4. LG The logo of the South Korean electronics company LG is a stylized image of a person’s face. According to the company, this represents its aspiration to maintain ordinary, human relations with its customers. 3. Evernote Elephants are known for having impressive memories, including their ability to remember both faces and events. It’s for this reason that Evernote, a note-taking application, uses an image of the animal as part of its logo. 1. Pepsi 2. Coca-Cola
