From Brian Catalina Entertainment, the creator of NGC’s hit series Ultimate Survivor Alaska, and in association with multimedia studio Electus, LLC, comes the next great reality adventure series. There is a hidden world where the most hardened, independent and obsessive individuals have made a choice to live in solitude. With each new announcement it seems that natgeo’s entire strategy is to be Discovery-lite, in a very uninspired way.
While Hollywood paparazzi prize a first snapshot of a celebrity’s newborn, astrophotographers are always on the hunt for something more elusive—the birth of distant stars like our sun. The ALMA observations reveal a large energetic jet moving away from us, as seen in the colors of orange and green in the lower right of the above image. This wide-field view shows a rich region filled with sdust clouds and tar factories in the southern constellation of Vela. Up until now, a large, dark, dust cloud has made parts of these jets near invisible- as seen in the above visible light image taken by ALMA’s neighboring observatory, ESO’s New Technology Telescope (NTT). We’re Moving!As of October 23, 2014, StarStruck will be hosted on National Geographic's main news site. Alex Honnold makes his way up Yosemite’s El Capitan, without ropes or help from friends.

If poachers continue to reduce valuable crown jewels of a country’s wildlife without fear of a very heavy price, including forfeiting their lives, what’s to curtail this ugly business?
If a species is a keystone species, that is as the tiger, is an instrumental regulator throughout an ecosystem, its loss would negatively impact the health of many species of flora & fauna very quickly, and especially considering its value relative to its low numbers in the first instance, and its niche cannot be replaced by another species in the second.

Hand-built by drug smugglers, a "game changing," hundred-foot craft seized this month shows how far cocaine subs have come.
Much more primitive than the fully submersible cocaine submarine seized on July 2, unmanned "torpedo subs"a€”like this one seized in Buenaventura, Colombia, in 2008a€”are filled with contraband and towed underwater behind a fishing boat, doctor and former smuggler Miguel Angel Montoya said in the online documentary Colombian Narcosubs.If approached, smugglers can simply cut a torpedo loose and let it sinka€”a tactic used by crews of all types of narco-subs. Pictured in the BogotA?, Colombia, warehouse where it was confiscated in 2000, this hundred-foot (30-meter) narco-sub was found surrounded with Russian-language design documents. Fifty-five million people left Europe, and they encountered some of the same heartbreaking problems as today's refugees.
Southeast Asia's bearcat has a movie-theater aroma, but it's not the only animal that smells like snack foods. There are 54 countries and one “non-self governing territory”, the Western Sahara, in Africa. Before colonial rule Africa comprised up to 10,000 different states and autonomous groups with distinct languages and customs. The Pharaonic civilization of ancient Egypt is one of the world’s oldest and longest-lasting civilizations. Arabic is spoken by 170 million people on the continent, followed in popularity by English (130 million), Swahili (100), French (115), Berber (50), Hausa (50), Portuguese (20) and Spanish (10). Over 25% all languages are spoken only in Africa with over 2,000 recognised languages spoken on the continent. Over 25 million people are HIV-positive on the continent and over 17 million have died of the disease already.
The Second Congo War claimed over 5.4 million lives and is the deadliest worldwide conflict since World War II. There are fewer people with internet connections in Africa than there are in just New York City. Approximately 90% of all cases of malaria worldwide occur in Africa, accounting for 24% of all child deaths in sub-Saharan Africa. Africa is the world’s hottest continent with deserts and drylands covering 60% of land surface area (e.g.
Nigeria is fourth largest oil exporter in the world, and Africa’s biggest oil producer with about 2.2 million barrels produced every day.
The continent has the largest reserves of precious metals with over 40% of the gold reserves, over 60% of the cobalt, and 90% of the platinum reserves. China is Africa’s top trade partner with Sino-African trade volumes now nearing $200 billion per year.
Neocolonialism is a real threat with over 1 million Chinese citizens on the African continent.
Pigs walk around on top of 20m deep refuse piles at the water’s edge in Freetown (Sierra Leone).
Over 55% of Africa’s labour force working in food production with vast areas of arable and pastoral lands supporting agricultural economies. Over 90% of soils are unsuitable for agriculture and only 0.25% has moderate to low potential for sustainable farming. The streets of Porto Novo, the capital of Benin, are not paved, all cars are second-hand, and all taxis are motorbikes. Water scarcity impacts the lives of over 300 million Africans, of whom approximately 75% of Africans rely on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water.
Productivity of about 65% of the continent’s agricultural lands has declined significantly with vast tracts of land have been degraded by erosion, poor land management practices, mining and pollution over the last 50 years.
Some landscapes are estimated to lose over 50 metric tonnes of soil per hectare per year due to neglect and desertification. Over 30% of Africa’s pastural land and almost 20% of all forests and woodlands are classified as moderately- or heavily-degraded. Deforestation rates in Africa are twice the average for the rest of the world with more than four million hectares of primary forest disappearing every year. Some 60% of the tropical forests in the Congo Basin are considered commercially exploitable. Six of the top ten countries with the largest annual net loss of forested area are in Africa. Primary forests shrink by on average 40,000 square kilometres (or 0.6% of total remaining forest cover) each year with most significant losses in heavily-forested countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon. Hala Village in the valleys below Hogsback Mountain where Cape parrots used to feed on yellowwood fruits, Celtis fruits, wild olives, and wild plums before they were chopped out by greedy colonists or burnt under communal land ownership. Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa and the second-largest freshwater lake in the world. Africa has the most extensive biomass burning in the world, yet only emits about 4% of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions. Africa has eight of the 11 major biomes and the largest-remaining populations of lion, elephant, rhinoceros, cheetah, hyena, leopard and hundreds of other species. Megafauna like giraffe, zebra, gorilla, hippopotamus, chimpanzee and wildebeest are unique to the continent and only found here. Africa has over 85% of the world’s elephants and over 99% of the remaining lions are on the African continent. Africa is home to the world’s largest living land animal, the African elephant, which can weigh up to 7 tons. NarinaTrogons are the most widespread and generalist in their habitat preferences of the three Apaloderma trogons. Today there are few truly wild places left on the continent with 1.1 billion people and a global economy looking to Africa for the resources to sustain development into the next century. I have not been to Africa yet but it would be great for me when i’ll find the chance to try something like this.


I want to know about HOW THE AFRICA LOSS THEIR CIVILIZATION, MINERAL,FOREST AND EVERY THING. AFRICAN CAN,T UNDERSTANDING WORLD MOST SIGNIFICANT THIEVES AGAIN READY TO STOL REST OF THEIR RESOURCES ! Africa is better than this, there is much good to talk about Africa but not much negatives as Steve potrays. I’m currently attending college I’m taking an African diversity class and I love it this point in the semester wish that people would stay out of Africa and stop robbing my motherland of all the materials and quit raping my homeland !!! The information is good though but next time you potray a good image of our lovely continent,tell us! King Tut may be seen as the golden boy of ancient Egypt today, but during his reign, Tutankhamun wasn't exactly a strapping sun god. Instead, a new DNA study says, King Tut was a frail pharaoh, beset by malaria and a bone disordera€”his health possibly compromised by his newly discovered incestuous origins. Regarding the revelation that King Tut's mother and father were brother and sister, Pusch said, "Inbreeding is not an advantage for biological or genetic fitness. Despite his brief reign, King Tut is perhaps Egypt's best known pharaoh because of the wealth of treasuresa€”including a solid gold death maska€”found during the surprise discovery of his intact tomb in 1922. The new study, published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association, marks the first time the Egyptian government has allowed genetic studies to be performed using royal mummies. In the new study, the mummies of King Tut and ten other royals that researchers have long suspected were his close relatives were examined.
Using DNA samples taken from the mummies' bones, the scientists were able to create a five-generation family tree for the boy pharaoh.
The team looked for shared genetic sequences in the Y chromosomea€”a bundle of DNA passed only from father to sona€”to identify King Tut's male ancestors.
Furthermore, the mummy known as KV35 was King Tut's grandfather, the pharaoh Amenhotep III, whose reign was marked by unprecedented prosperity.
Preliminary DNA evidence also indicates that two stillborn fetuses entombed with King Tut when he died were daughters whom he likely fathered with his chief queen Ankhensenamun, whose mummy may also have finally been identified.
Also, a mummy previously known as the Elder Lady is Queen Tiye, King Tut's grandmother and wife of Amenhotep III. While the body of King Tut's mother has finally been revealed, her identity remains a mystery. Some Egyptologists have speculated that King Tut's mother was Akhenaten's chief wife, Queen Nefertitia€”made famous by an iconic bust (Nefertiti-bust picture).
Instead, the sister with whom Akenhaten fathered King Tut may have been a minor wife or concubine, which would not have been unusual, said Willeke Wendrich, a UCLA Egyptologist who was not involved in the study. The team's examination of King Tut's body also revealed previously unknown deformations in the king's left foot, caused by the necrosis, or death, of bone tissue. The affliction would have been painful and forced King Tut to walk with a canea€”many of which were found in his tomba€”but it would not have been life threatening. The scientists found DNA from the mosquito-borne parasite that causes malaria in the young pharaoh's bodya€”the oldest known genetic proof of the disease.
The team found more than one strain of malaria parasite, indicating that King Tut caught multiple malarial infections during his life. The malaria would have weakened King Tut's immune system and interfered with the healing of his foot.
Until now the best guesses as to how King Tut died have included a hunting accident, a blood infection, a blow to the head, and poisoning. Another speculation apparently laid to rest by the new study is that Akhenaten had a genetic disorder that caused him to develop the feminine features seen in his statutes, including wide hips, a potbelly, and the female-like breasts associated with the condition gynecomastia. When the team analyzed Akhenaten's body using medical scanners, no evidence of such abnormalities were found. In his book Tutankhamun's Armies, Darnell proposes that Akhenaten's androgynous appearance in art was an attempt to associate himself with Aten, the original creator god in Egyptian theology, who was neither male nor female.
The generally good condition of the DNA from the royal mummies of King Tut's family surprised many members of the team.
Indeed, its quality was better than DNA gathered from nonroyal Egyptian mummies several centuries younger, study co-author Pusch said. The team suspects that the embalming method the ancient Egyptians used to preserve the royal mummies inadvertently protected DNA as well as flesh.
Uranus and its five major moons are depicted in this montage of images acquired by the Voyager 2 spacecraft back in 1986.
Amid excitement over a total eclipse, stargazers also can look forward this week to some starry surprises and a minor meteor shower.
This wide-angle sky chart shows the constellation Pisces and its Circlet asterism pointing the way toward the distant planet Uranus on October 7, 2014.
The green ice giant will appear opposite in the sky from the sun, rising in the east after sunset in the constellation Pisces and located to the far lower left of the Circlet asterism, seen in the sky chart at right. At magnitude 5.7  you can try spying Uranus with the naked eye from dark countryside—but you may find it easier to pick out its tiny green-blue colored disk with binoculars or a small telescope. It’s amazing to think that this gas giant planet is so far from Earth that it takes light bouncing off its upper cloud deck more than two and a half hours to travel across the solar system to reach our eyes.
Blood Moon.  Night owls get a chance to see the moon devoured by Earth’s shadow and turning red in the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 8. The best views of the total lunar eclipse will be from North America and across the Pacific Ocean. Like most meteor showers, the Draconids are named after the constellation from which they appear to radiate—in this case, Draco, the Dragon. At the shower’s peak, Draco will be nearly overhead around midnight throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
Also known as the Seven Sisters, this jewel-like star cluster is visible to the naked-eye even from the suburbs. Earth’s natural satellite will appear only three degrees from the 68 light-year distant red giant, a division equal to the width of your three middle fingers held together at arm’s length.
Views through binoculars will be particularly pretty as the moon will appear to lie right in the middle of the distinct V-shaped star cluster, the Hyades. If you're interested to see how warm your neighborhood will look like at 2090, here's a chance. Readers who have moderate to advanced knowledge of how to manipulate datasets can see instructions for how to get the raw information here. The map charts how rain and temperatures in the United States will be affected based on greenhouse gases. The projections "may make it easier for resource managers to quantify anticipated climate change impacts on a wide range of conditions and resources important to local communities," NASA stated. On this map of Nevada a€“ northern California are superimposed graphics representing the average temperatures in the 1950s (top) and projected temperatures for the 2090s. As you can see from the climate map above, Nevada and California are highly affected by the projections, and officials in the region are paying attention, according to NASA.
The data was crunched using supercomputers at NASA's Ames Research Center, allowing the team to "produce the downscaled, high resolution climate dataset for the U.S. Despite increases in efficiency, water demand in the United States is likely to increase substantially in the future if climate continues to warm, new projections indicate. The EU-funded ENSEMBLES ('Ensemble-based Predictions of Climate Changes and their Impacts') project has made a significant contribution towards achieving better climate risk forecasts. There is now widespread acceptance that the climate is changing due to human-related greenhouse gas emissions. A new report from an institute at the University of Alberta paints the clearest picture yet of how climate change will reshape the province's landscape.
Over the past 23 years, UN scientists have issued progressively stronger assertions about climate change.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration was the major driver behind the global climatic shifts that occurred between 53 and 34 million years ago, according to new research led by the University of Southampton. Coral reefsa€”the world's most productive and diverse marine ecosystemsa€”rely on a masterful recycling program to stay healthy. Throughout the centuries, volcanic eruptions have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives due in part to the lack of accurate signs indicating imminent eruptions.


Many large glaciers in Greenland are at greater risk of melting from below than previously thought, according to new maps of the seafloor around Greenland created by an international research team.
Two pairs of strangers are dropped in a life raft into the ocean, miles away from the closest land. They are the lighthouse keepers, the night watchmen, the lone wolves who once lived among us but now are on solitary patrol against foes and predators, real and imagined. The Hollywood Sign is a trademark and intellectual property of Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Using a giant radio telescope in the Chilean desert, they have managed to  snap images of the first moments of life of a true cosmic rock-star in never-before-seen, stunning detail. Meanwhile another jet, visible in pink and purple towards the left of the baby star, is beaming towards Earth.
Clocked at nearly a million kilometers (620,000 miles) an hour, these blasts slam into surrounding gas and dust—making them light up like neon signs. However with the combined power of 66 antennae working together,  astronomers have been able to pull back the veil of obscuring dust and capture in stunning detail the birth of a faraway star. We'll continue to be your source for all things in the cosmos and what's coming up in your night sky. Honnold plans to free solo Taipei 101, the world’s 5th tallest building, this spring.
The exact date of China’s first skiers is debatable, but Mark Jenkins tells Boyd that today, tribes in the Altay Mountains practice an ancient type of skiing that they use for traveling, hunting, and occasionally, getting air off jumps. But unlike airplanes, once submarines are as far from sea-level as they can go, they act as a window to a world full of strange animal life. Since leaving the military, Mander has applied the skills he acquired in war to protect animals to start the International Anti-Poaching Foundation.
We should invest whatever’s available to insure tigers survive, and for this reason give it extra priority not less. Because most manned cocaine subs stay at the surface, a crew can quickly escape into a raft while scuttling the ship.The simple torpedo sub, though, may be in for a high-tech makeover too. Top 10 oil producers in order of total exports: Nigeria, Algeria, Angola, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Equatorial Guinea, Republic of Congo, Gabon, South Africa.
Most people do not use money and prefer to barter for sachets of clean water, the most valuable commodity in Freetown. In the last decade Africa has had the fastest growing economies in the world but Europe is massively on decline.I would like to see similar of Europe and America, stating America has the highest maternal and infant mortality in the developed world and over 1 million people in Britain rely on handouts for food. National Geographic is one of my most favorite TV channels and I enjoy many serials and stories on it.
Bytheway right now going to take the, and so damn sure that will have marvelous time there. Your report of abject poverty is scary but I would have love you to talk about places like Johannesburg in South Africa, Lagos, Ibadan, Port Harcourt and Abuja in Nigeria. It apparently solves several mysteries surrounding King Tut, including how he died and who his parents were. Normally the health and immune system are reduced and malformations increase," he said. He ascended to the throne at the age of 9 but ruled for only ten years before dying at 19 around 1324 B.C. The researchers then determined parentage for the mummies by looking for signs that a mummy's genes are a blend of a specific couple's DNA.
Akhenaten was best known for abolishing ancient Egypt's pantheon in favor of worshipping only one god. DNA studies show that she was the daughter of Amenhotep III and Tiye and thus was the full sister of her husband, Akhenaten.
But the new findings seem to challenge this idea, because historical records do not indicate that Nefertiti and Akhenaten were related. The strains belong to the parasite responsible for malaria tropica, the most virulent and deadly form of the disease. These factors, combined with the fracture in his left thighbone, which scientists had discovered in 2005, may have ultimately been what killed the young king, the authors write. Hawass and his team concluded that the feminized features found in the statues of Akenhaten created during his reign were done for religious and political reasons. This week the green ice giant is easily found thanks to its stunningly close encounter with Earth’s moon in the night skies.
Helping to track down the seventh planet from the sun, the near-full moon will be only four degrees to the right of Uranus.
When Earth slams into this debris stream, the comet particles disintegrate in our upper atmosphere, creating streaks of light. As darkness falls on Friday, October 10, look toward the eastern sky for the waning gibbous moon positioned in the constellation Taurus, the Bull, posing to the right of the open star cluster Pleiades. I need this data to calculate how much the Moon traverses in one day to the piont of the eclipse that will occur on the 8th of October in the morning. There's new data available that has monthly climate projections for the continental United States at the size of a neighborhood, or about a half-mile (800 meters). As for everyone else, NASA briefly summarized how the information could be used for community planners to deal with the effects of climate change.
Because, of course, this is a projection, the researchers ran four different scenarios for the period between 1950 and 2099.
Climate change will affect all sectors of society and the environment at the local, national and global scales.
The Watch is their watch of the restless seas, the blackest skies and the phantom prowlers. Submarine pilot and National Geographic Explorer Erika Bergman shares what life is like 2,100 feet under the sea off of Honduras’ Caribbean coast. Forests used to cover over 20% of Africa’s 30 million square kilometers with almost all currently being destroyed and degraded by commercial and subsistence logging, as well as land conversion to plantations, agriculture, mines, roads and settlements. We have also launched a micro-nursery program that builds small tree nurseries for ten households in the village, which are stocked with yellowwood seedlings that must be grown up to planting size. Africa has arrived in the 21st century standing tall and more ready than ever to take its destiny into its hands”. That means the outer planet will be at its biggest and brightest in our skies for the year.
However, observers can try and catch some shooting stars during the lunar eclipse, when the skies turn darker.
Climate projections came from global climate models from the upcoming Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change 5th Assessment Report and historical surface observations. Armed with their guts and driven by adrenaline, their goal is to survive in the middle of the ocean with limited supplies and get back to the mainland before their time is up.
And The Watch is our watch of them, thanks to surveillance cameras that follow their every move. As much as I like to think that we will be doing it in my lifetime, the more I learn the more it seems that the stars will be out of reach for us simply because of the huge distances that have to be traveled.
He tells Boyd that he regularly takes the elevator to the observation decks of tall buildings whenever he travels, but this time, he will use the building’s window sills as hand and foot holds and will reach the top floor under his own power. Dungey says that people should try to find out about recycling opportunities before the needles start to fall off. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), which assisted in the seizure operation."There's been a lot of speculation," said Braun,A now with Spectre Group International, a private security company.
The thrill of watching who has what it takes to survive in the open water is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. This was a time of testing each other out: a few of them had some recent and deep puncture wounds.
