    A US firm has given scientific details of its "human composting" process for environmentally friendly funerals. A pilot study on deceased volunteers showed that soft tissue broke down safely and completely within 30 days. The firm, Recompose, claims that its process saves more than a tonne of carbon, compared to cremation or traditional burial. It says that it will offer the world's first human composting service in Washington state from next February. Speaking exclusively to BBC News, Recompose's chief executive and founder, Katrina Spade, said that concerns about climate change had been a big factor in so many people expressing...

    Fire that almost wiped out entire Australian town is finally extinguished. The Australian bushfires seemed like an unstoppable force that was destroying everything in its path. Despite this, millions upon millions of people fought the catastrophe any way they could. Like many others in Australia, Casey Kirchhoff too had to flee her home because of the bushfires. However, in the midst of this whole chaos, a Twitter story surfaced showing that perhaps not all hope is lost. Casey Kirchhoff, a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales and Australian alpine plant enthusiast, recently posted pictures of what was...
  • Plants Emit Ultrasonic ‘Screams’ When Stressed: Study

    The Epoch Times ^ | Updated: December 10, 2019 | By Isabel van Brugen
    Some plants emit a high frequency distress sound when they are placed under environmental stress, a team of researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel has found. The team, led by Itzhak Khait, examined the sounds emitted by tomato and tobacco plants when stressed by insufficient water or when their stems are cut. Microphones recorded ultrasonic sounds between 20 and 100 kilohertz emitted by the plants in both cases, the study found. The sounds emitted by the stressed plants are at frequencies unable to be heard by humans, however the team of scientists believes “some organisms” can hear the sounds...

  • Hitler’s vegetable garden discovered at his secret headquarters

    A garden that once provided Adolf Hitler with fresh vegetables has been discovered at his infamous Wolf’s Lair headquarters. Hitler spent much of his time in the final years of the war at the Wolf’s Lair, which is located in what is now Poland. The top-secret, heavily guarded bunker complex was used by the Nazis until January 1945, when it was abandoned and partly destroyed ahead of advancing Soviet forces. The garden was found on the grounds of Mazurolandia, a nearby theme park museum, and excavations took place during the summer.
