Comments Off on Malala Yousafzai Becomes Youngest Ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

17-year-old Malala Yousafzai has been named the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate , sharing the prize with Kailash Satyarthi for their work supporting the “struggle against the suppression of children and young people.” Yousafazai, a Pakistani teen who addressed the UN on her 16th birthday , is particularly well known for her advocacy of the rights of all children to an education, after she was shot in the head by the Taliban while on her way to school in 2012. Satyarthi, a 60-year-old Indian activist, works in the tradition of Mahatma Ghandi to lead peaceful protests that focus “on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain.” Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Read the rest of Malala Yousafzai Becomes Youngest Ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: child labor , children's rights , education , Hindu , India , islam , kailash satyarthi , Malala Yousafzai , nobel , nobel peace prize , Pakistan , taliban , UN , United Nations

Comments Off on Wind Powered Antarctic Expedition

At the end of 2011, an Antarctic expedition is being planned using windpower to attempt to set a record for “non-motorized travel in complete autonomy.” Belgian explorer and adventurers Dixie Dansercoer and Sam Deltour are preparing for the 100-day, 6000 kilometer (3728 mile) expedition through the largely unexplored region of East Antarctica. The team will propel themselves as well as the sleds with all of their supplies and gear using parachute like kites which will allow them to average 60 kilometers (37 miles) a day. Dansercoer is a Belgian windsurfing champion, and Deltour is the youngest musher to complete Yukon Quest and Iditarod in 1 year.
