"A viscount in the Armoured Cavalry Branch of the French Army left behind a collection of hundreds of glass plates taken during World War I that have never before been published. The images, by an unknown photographer, show the daily life of soldiers in the trenches, destruction of towns and military leaders. This summer marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the WWI" - Mark H from Bookmarklet

"Move as millions, survive as one. That is the subtitle to the new seven-part television series from National Geographic called "Great Migrations". Animals great and small are on the move around the world, chasing resources in dangerous journeys that might take mere hours or span generations. To capture the images and video for the series, they spent two and a half years in the field, traveling 420,000 miles across 20 countries and all seven continents." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

Rare Buddhist flower found under nun's washing machine - Telegraph -
Rare Buddhist flower found under nun's washing machine - Telegraph
The Udumbara flower was found in the home of a Chinese nun in Lushan Mountain, Jiangxi province, China. The rare Youtan Poluo or Udumbara flower, which, according to Buddhist legend, only blooms every 3,000 years, measures just 1mm in diametre. Miao Wei, 50, was cleaning when she discovered the cluster of white flowers under the washing machine. At first she thought the barely-there stems were worm eggs, however, the next day she discovered that the stems had grown 18 white tiny flowers on top and smelled "fragrant". Local temples believe the mini blooms are specimens of the miraculous Youtan Poluo flower - called "Udumbara" or "Udambara" in Sanskrit, meaning "an auspicious flower from heaven." - Halil from Bookmarklet
I'm confused now, just found this plant in an telegraph article, so maybe it is genuine and not a hoax? - Halil
Are there any botanists/horticulturists around to comment in this plant, out of curiosity? - Halil
Where's Jenny R.? She's a wildlife biologist and might know. - Rochelle
Well I messaged her, still no reply, I guess she's sleeping or out maybe? - Halil
She's probably at work. She works out in the field, not at a desk all day. - Rochelle
There's a Wikipedia talk page with a warning that there is no sourcing on the articles around and the pictures look like Lacewing eggs. I'll keep looking. *Edit: stopping now but it looks like it really is just Lacewing eggs. - Heather
JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNY!!!!!! There. I bet she'll be around shortly to answer any questions you guys might have :) - Eivind
Heza-chan ^_^, that's what I've been reading too, if they really are lacewing eggs, looks like telegraph have been duped and need to print a re-traction. - Halil
LMAO Those are totally lacewing eggs. Not to mention the fact that the mirror-like substrate they're on...what is that, tile? Metal? an inhospitable environment for the growth of almost any plant. And anyway, the udumbara is an effing TREE. Not just a random microscopic plant. It's a type of fig tree treasured by Buddhists. - Hookuh Tinypants
tinypants, I posted the tree, see link, apparently they claim this flower grows in the fruit. What im surprised by is that the telegraph a 100% right wing Tory paper has apparently been tricked and duped in to printing this story...and agree, the surface is rather an odd place for a plant, either way, something's up with this story. Also, its not a April fools day prank, its printed 1st March 2010. - Halil
Yes, technically the flower of this tree does indeed grow inside the fruit. This is a common trait of figs and fig-type trees. I could go into the science behind it but I'd rather not bore people to death. :D I wouldn't be surprised that the Telegraph printed a shite story. I've seen them do it before and I daresay they'll do it again. - Hookuh Tinypants
See also: "OMG! There's a picture of Jesus on my toast!" tinypants for the win. - Jenny
Reported it to them, if you notice there is "no" journalists name associated with the article, it seems its an independent article sold to the newspaper for publication. I gave them my details and will keep you informed of any reply. - Halil

Woeful England suffer World Cup heartbreak - World Cup, Football - The Independent
"England suffered World Cup heartbreak today in a controversial but crushing 4-1 defeat to old rivals Germany. Two goals from Thomas Muller, plus strikes from Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski, secured the Germans' passage into the World Cup quarter finals. But the match in Bloemfontein was marred by Frank Lampard's goal that never was." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
Well Germany easily deserved their win, should have been more goals to them. England were absolutely awful. Today we had no defence, in other matches we didn't perform. We were lucky to even get this far. - Kol Tregaskes

"In 2008, Josh Fox received a letter from a natural gas company. They were interested in leasing land owned by his family to do natural gas drilling. The offer was for $100,000, but instead of taking the money, Josh decided to do some research on the natural gas industry and ended up making a documentary called GASLAND." - Michael R.

Android Team “Laser Focused” On The User Experience For Next Release
"Google’s Android team has been pushing new versions of the operating system at a furious pace since the first Android device hit the market in 2008. Lots of features have been added over the last couple of years. But the user experience hasn’t evolved much. That’s all going to change in the next version, we’ve heard from multiple sources close to Google. The team more or less has the core features they want at this point, say our sources, although more tweaks are certainly coming. But Google wants to put an end to the desire of handset manufacturers and carriers to add their own UI layer on top of Google – things like Sense, Motoblur, Ninjablur, etc." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
what's funny is that most people I know who have Sense or one of the other UI's long for a vanilla aka AOSP experience. I have sense turned off on my Hero. Sense kind of slows things down sometimes. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Also Google should take charge of software releases. The chokehold that the carriers and phone manufacturers have is ridiculous. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Gunny, that seems true. Will find out myself I guess. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Don't get me wrong a rooted Android phone is a wonderful experience and thankfully Rooting can be trivial. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that

"It looks like a beautiful watercolour painting, but this picture reveals a collection of 30 baby solar systems bursting into life in the Orion Nebula.

The highly sensitive observatory orbits Earth and is the only one able to take such detailed pictures in visible light." - RAPatton from Bookmarklet
"According to Time , one of the most prestigious news magazines, Droid was the “Numero Uno” gadget of the year." - Don't forget to rub this in the face of all your iPhone friends this week. I'm dead serious. I just posted this on my FB: Congratulations on being stuck with a subpar device (3GS) on the worst network in the country" - LANjackal from Bookmarklet
So this Time honor for the Droid is supposed to humiliate iPhone users? Not so much. Droid is certainly worthy competition which will hopefully keep the Apple folks working hard and perhaps inspire them to drop the ATT exclusive, among other things. - Kurt Starnes
Droid is good, ok, but not as fast as iPhone 3GS. As Kurt (well) said; competition is better, however. - Özkan Altuner from iPhone
It's more than competition. It's an alternative lifestyle. Apple is no longer think different, especially when you consume the media and everyone speaks about how great the iphone is when their device has been upgraded, but as yet without a re-design. - Richard A.
You know what's most amazing... you could live your whole file without ever buying an Apple product. I have. - Adrian
I know, and at the moment pc makers are leading, with integrated 3g modems :-). Such a great little feature to have. :-). - Richard A.
Richard: I still see it as competition - Droid and the coming Google Phone will be great for the market. For me these devices are just tools, not lifestyles. As a current iPhone user, I'm more interested in Google Phone than Droid, FWIW. - Kurt Starnes
There's no question Google Phone will be the more revolutionary product in terms of concept. Execution, however, may be something else entirely. Take a look at the disappointment that Wave has been - LANjackal from IM
Google Phone is apparently made by HTC but running fully functional Android. From what I have read, Droid doesn't fully utilize Android - like multi-touch, for example. - Kurt Starnes
That depends on how useful you find Multitouch. I don't miss it at all. That and the overseas models (Milestone) support the feature anyway - LANjackal from IM
Multitouch is essential to games. All iPhone OS shooters and most action games would have been impossible without it. - Pavlo Zahozhenko
That makes perfect sense generally. Except for me, since I don't play games on my DROID. - LANjackal
Pavlo: Actually, come to think of it ... IIRC while the DROID doesn't support multitouch out of the box, apps written for it can and do support the feature, which takes care of the games problem - LANjackal
@LANjackal Android OS supports multitouch on capacitive touchscreens, so it is possible to develop multitouch-aware apps. However, the absence of multitouch in DROID is a legal issue, so multitouch apps might not be available in the U.S. Android Market due to the same reason. With such restriction developers may think twice before using multitouch in their apps... This legal stuff slows down the evolution of Android apps ecosystem. - Pavlo Zahozhenko
Actually, multitouch-capable apps for the DROID *ARE* available in the US. The Dolphin Browser is an example thereof: - LANjackal from IM
Good :) I didn't know about it. - Pavlo Zahozhenko
Speaking of Dolphin Browser... can someone with a DROID try it out and give their impressions of it compared to the stock Browser. It's features are great, but I get it crashing and freezing a lot on my G1. - Adrian
The UI is hideous, but it works pretty well. That said, I prefer the stock browser because *gasp* it's more aesthetically pleasing - LANjackal from IM
The UI is kind of home brewed looking, but it has gesture support and all kinds of nifty "lab-like" things if you spend some time exploring it. The question is performance compared to the stock browser on some kick-ass hardware... - Adrian
If you're interested in performance, check out the link I posted above. It's significantly faster than the stock browser - LANjackal from IM
Good point thanks, it seems to perform admirably based on the video. - Adrian
Hmmmm I revisited Dolphin while at sushi last night and discovered that it's gotten a LOT better in the few weeks since I last looked at it (Read: it's no longer an eyesore). Skins are available for free in the Marketplace, including a red one that goes very well with the DROID. It's also MUCH faster than the stock browser. I've made it my default - LANjackal

Exclusive photos: Polar bear turns cannibal
"These are exclusive pictures to Reuters of a Canadian polar bear eating a cub that it killed and cannibalized. A global study released in 2008 suggests that climate change has turned some polar bears into cannibals. However, a local Inuit leader told journalists that a male polar bear eating a cub is a normal occurrence." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
On a Planet Earth episode they mentioned that the only predator a mother polar bear has to worry about for her cubs is a male polar bear. I think it is a normal occurrence. - Benjamin Golub
Man's gotta eat. - Shey
I think this is getting extra attention because it makes a good story apropos global warming. As Rev. above points out, tomcats often kill and eat freshly born kittens. It doesn't happen seldom, it's a matter-of-fact thing. But this too is probably caused by global warming, naturally... - Raoul Pop
Some male animals kill the young of other female animals so they'll go into heat and mate with that male. - Shey
lol@MVB - Shey
Probably, with the reducing ice caps, this will happen more often because there's much more competition between males. - João Almeida
I agree with Benjamin Golub, I heard the same on Planet earth:Pole to Pole episode. - Ashish
Echoing João, probably it won't happen bc of competition, but because there's no damn place to hunt! - Franc, a rememberer
I think it's probably normal behavior too, unless they can measure an increase in the activity. Male animals have an incentive to kill rivals' offspring. - John (bird whisperer)
The question would be is this increased above normal or maybe a survey of seal kill vs cub kill - WarLord
