An archaeological team working in  Oppland County , Norway, has been doing research among the melting glaciers, and discovered hundreds of discarded or lost items now revealed by the receding ice.

Comments Off on BP Faces up to $18 Billion in Fines for Gross Negligence Over Deepwater Horizon

BP was yesterday found guilty of being “grossly negligent” and “reckless” in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig blowout. The blowout killed 11 workers and caused the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill that was the worst offshore environmental disaster in U.S. history. In the latest phase of the ongoing trial investigating BP’s liability for the incident, Louisiana District Judge Carl Barbier’s ruling means the U.K. oil company could be liable for up to $18 billion in additional fines under the Clean Water Act, on top of the $43 billion in charges the company already anticipated.

Comments Off on HippopoThames: Giant Hippo Spotted on London’s River Thames!

A giant hippo was recently spotted floating on London’s River Thames! No, it’s not a freakish migration caused by global warming; rather it’s a work of art by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman , who is famous for his scaled-up sculptures (like this gigantic Rubber Duck ). The 21-meter-long HippopoThames was inspired by prehistoric mammals that once inhabited the river. The sculpture will remain on display at Nine Elms on the South Bank until September 28, 2014.
