The Civil War-era ship's final resting place
was a mystery for 150 years.


And then it was gone, swallowed up by Lake Huron that day in 1861, claiming the lives of all 33 on board.

But Monday, veteran shipwreck hunter David Trotter, 72, of Canton plans to announce he and his crew found the side-wheel steamer in July at the bottom of Lake Huron — the latest in the nearly 100 vessels Trotter has discovered in more than 35 years of Great Lakes shipwreck hunting.

To predict and prevent the collapse of streets in Rome, geoscientists mapped high-risk areas of the quarry system


Deep under the streets and buildings of Rome is a maze of tunnels and quarries that dates back to the very beginning of this ancient city. Now, geologists are venturing beneath Rome to map these underground passageways, hoping to prevent modern structures from crumbling into the voids below.

In 2011, there were 44 incidents of streets or portions of structures collapsing into the quarries, a number that rose to 77 in 2012 and 83 to date in 2013. To predict and prevent such collapses, George Mason University geoscientists Giuseppina Kysar Mattietti and scientists from the Center for Speleoarchaeological Research (Sotterranei di Roma) are mapping high-risk areas of the quarry system.

Step one for everyone trying to make the world a better place should be listening to those they wish to help.

This is certainly true in the case of Haiti, a long-time target of Canadian ‘aid’. But, while Haitians continue to criticize Ottawa’s role in their country, few Canadians bother to pay attention.

After Uruguay announced it was withdrawing its 950 troops from the United Nations Mission to Stabilize Haiti last month, Moise Jean-Charles, took aim at the countries he considers most responsible for undermining Haitian sovereignty. The popular senator from Haiti’s north recently told Haiti Liberté:

Iraq is clearly the most famous rogue state, if we are to believe the two Bushes, especially the junior George, who rammed into that country in 2003, all but destroying it, maiming its people and proud 3,000-year-old heritage.  All based on an outright lie: the infamous ‘weapons of mass destruction’ they were accused of hiding, but that were never found.

All because Bush, Blair and their allies got it all “wrong” about Saddam’s WMD’s:  “We never found ‘em,” said George W., who then went on to joke about the whole affair during a White House dinner in March 2004.
