The Svalbard Global Seed Vault -  Seeds Safe & Secure
 
The safety of seeds is crucial for future food security and many types of seed banks exist within the world, however none exist like the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. Essentially a vast secure store of “duplicates” of all the important seed samples from the world’s crop collections its mission is to act as a safety net against any accidental loss. This includes anything from funding cuts, to global warming, to a global catastrophe in case of any of these the vault currently holds 6.5 million seeds with 1 million individual varieties. 
 
Svalbard itself is located within a mountain in an Island in the arctic. Seeds are stored in minus 18 degrees celsius which are placed in sealed packages, inside sealed black boxes inside vault. The low temperature and the limited access to oxygen ensures low metabolic activity and cause a delay in the aging of the seeds. However seeds eventually do die but vault has an initiative in place to take stored samples and plant them to harvest new seeds from them. Ensuring the original variety can be perpetuated, and last almost forever. If seed varieties are lost anywhere in the world they can be re-established from the collection at Svalbard.

The Goblin Shark (Mitsukurina Owstoni) is a rare, poorly known species of deep-sea shark. Sometimes called a “living fossil”, it is the only extant representative of the family Mitsukurinidae, a lineage some 125 million years old. This species looks unlike any other shark, with a long flattened snout, highly protrusible jaws containing prominent nail-like teeth, and pink coloration. It is usually between three and four meters (10 - 13 ft) long when mature, though can grow considerably larger. Goblin sharks inhabit upper continental slopes, submarine canyons, and seamounts around the world at depths greater than 100m (330 ft), with adults found deeper than juveniles [x].

Gopher Women’s Hockey: Pay Attention To This
 
Brandt Lifts Gophers Past Beavers, 4-3
Sophomore Hannah Brandt (Vadnais Heights, Minn.) scored the game-winning goal with 7:19 remaining in the third period to break a 3-3 tie and give the No. 1 Minnesota women’s hockey team a 4-3 win and a series sweep over Bemidji State at the Sanford Center Saturday evening.
 
Brandt led the Gophers with three points on two goals and one assist, and junior Rachael Bona (Coon Rapids, Minn.) had one goal and one assist as the Gophers earned their NCAA-record 57th consecutive win.
 
Do you even understand what is happening? Do you?! *shakes head* Look, read this …
 
The last men’s team to finish unbeaten, and the last college team to do so before the 2012–13 Minnesota women, was the 1983–84 Bemidji State Beavers, who were then competing in Division II, a level of competition that no longer conducts a championship. Among schools in the top level of men’s ice hockey, the last unbeaten season was by the Cornell Big Red in 1969–70, who went 29–0–0 in the University Division (the predecessor to today’s Division I).
 
The 1955–56 Clarkson Golden Knights were undefeated (23–0–0), and Coach Bill Harrison won the NCAA Coach of the Year award, but Clarkson skipped the NCAA tournament because Clarkson had seniors with (4) years of college play which was against NCAA rules at the time.
 
The most consecutive professional ice hockey wins by a team is 21 by the Cardiff Devils (UK) in the Elite Ice Hockey League (UK) from 31 October 2010 to 15 January 2011. The Devils outscored opponents by a combined score of 111-38 during their perfect run.
 
The longest NHL Winning Streak Overall: 35 games, by 1979–80 Philadelphia Flyers (25 wins, 10 ties)
 
Jesus, you guys, this is the longest winning streak in hockey on any level, and it is happening in Minnesota.
 
I mean, what can you say … girls rule, boys drool.
I tried to get it into an HBO after school special about not using drugs but the filmmaker pulled it out. Whoever found a way to weasel it into the arrangement of a Judy Garland song, that’s somebody who really pulled off the ultimate, I think, because the movie stops and it’s the only thing that’s happening. I’ll never be able to pull that off. - http://enemyswim.tumblr.com/post...

Motorola reveals ambitious plan to build modular smartphones
 
Motorola has unveiled Project Ara, an open-source initiative for modular smartphones with the goal to “do for hardware what the Android platform has done for software.” The company plans to create an ecosystem that can support third-party hardware development for individual phone components — in other words, you could upgrade your phone’s processor, display, and more by shopping at different vendors.

Submerged Churches.
 
These churches from all over the world are not victims of natural disaster, they all sit in the valley of a reservoir. Many reservoirs were created in valleys with small towns or villages nestled in them, the benefit of having reservoirs always outweighed the cost in relocating a small population. In many of these settlements the religious buildings were the tallest and once the valleys were flooded they could still be seen poking out of the water in a surreal post apocalyptic manner. Lots of them still survive, making more of an appearance every time the water level drops.
 
Among these examples are Ladybower, Graun, Panta de Sau, Tehri and Potosi
