Mysterious Titanic message from doomed passenger leaves experts puzzled

Mysterious Titanic message from doomed passenger leaves experts puzzled

A team of researchers is trying to unravel a mystery surrounding a letter they think may have been written by a young girl on board the Titanic on the eve of its sinking.

A family came across the missive in a sealed bottle buried on a beach in Hopewell Rocks, Bay of Funday, in the Canadian province of New Brunswick four years ago.

The letter, dated April 13, 1912, is written in French and signed by Mathilde Lefebvre, who was 13 years old.

It says: "I am throwing this bottle into the sea in the middle of the Atlantic. We are due to arrive in New York in a few days. If anyone finds it, tell the Lefebvre family in Liévin".

Liévin, in Pas-de-Calais, was the French region she and her family hailed from. She was a third-class passenger with her mother, Marie Daumont, and three of her siblings.

Deep-sea mountains: Earth’s unexplored ecosystems that are teeming with life

Deep-sea mountains: Earth’s unexplored ecosystems that are teeming with life

On land, you’d struggle to find a mountain that hasn’t already been climbed. In contrast, in the deep sea there are thousands of unexplored peaks. Seamounts are submerged volcanoes, active or dormant, with foothills planted in the abyss and summits soaring up thousands of metres without breaking the sea surface.

These hidden mountains are some of the least known, but most abundant geological features on the planet. They form a fragmented habitat that covers an area rivalling the world’s tropical rainforests. As scientists learn more about seamounts, it’s becoming clear that these dramatic montane seascapes are rich oases of life that play a crucial role across the entire global ocean.

Currently, there’s no definitive count of the world’s seamounts, because locating and identifying them is not easy. Estimates suggest there are between 30,000 and more than 100,000 seamounts with peaks over 1,500m high. One of the biggest is Davidson Seamount off the California coast – 42km long, 8km wide and 2,280m tall. Taller still are seamounts that rise almost 5,000m from base to peak. Add in smaller peaks, 100m and higher, and the estimated global tally reaches into the millions.

Parents of Bay Area boy swept to sea didn't know about sneaker waves

Parents of Bay Area boy swept to sea didn't know about sneaker waves

SAN FRANCISCO — The parents of a 12-year-old boy who was swept into the Pacific Ocean in January said they didn’t know the hidden danger of sneaker waves that sometimes strike Northern California beaches.

Arunay Pruthi was dragged underneath a huge wave on Jan. 18 during a family outing to Cowell Ranch State Beach, a secluded cove about 30 miles south of San Francisco. The wave hit him as his parents struggled to save his 8-year-old brother from another powerful wave that crashed over the younger boy.

Despite an exhaustive search along the coastline by authorities and a privately organized one by his family, Arunay's body has not been found.

He was among 12 people who were fatally swept from Bay Area beaches into the sea from November to January, a period that was far deadlier than any stretch authorities had seen before, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday.

The victims included a 4-year-old girl who died after being dragged into the surf on a Thanksgiving Day outing to McClures Beach at Point Reyes National Seashore, a 40-year-old father who drowned while trying to save his two children who had been swept from Blind Beach in Jenner to sea on Jan. 3, and a wave that overtook a 37-year-old woman as she and her husband looked for sea urchins at Pescadero State Beach on the San Mateo County coast.

Northern Montanans are some of the luckiest folks in the United States. They have Glacier National Park in their backyard. Vibrant small cities like Whitefish and Missoula are filled with restaurants and shops. Plus, residents have easy access to one of America’s most remarkable lakes.

The glacial-fed Flathead Lake is 385 feet deep and holds the title of Montana’s largest freshwater lake. It’s an epicenter of outdoor adventure, offering a whole host of activities and a superb selection of camping options, including off-the-grid choices, RV spots, historic cabins, and even yurts!

Getting here is easy, provided that you have your own car. The southern part of the lake is located about an hour and 20 minutes from Missoula, which is home to the nearest airport. Glacier National Park’s west entrance and Lake McDonald are about 50 minutes northwest, and the city of Whitefish is on the route, about 30 minutes into the drive.

‘I have given up the fight’: ‘Italy’s Robinson Crusoe’ to leave island

‘I have given up the fight’: ‘Italy’s Robinson Crusoe’ to leave island

A man known as Italy’s Robinson Crusoe who has lived alone on a Mediterranean island for more than 30 years after running into difficulties in the sea has said he is finally surrendering to pressure from authorities to leave and will be moving to a small apartment.

Mauro Morandi, 81, stumbled across Budelli, an island off Sardinia known for its pink-sanded beach, in 1989 after his catamaran broke down on the way to the south Pacific. In a fortuitous twist of fate, Morandi discovered that the island’s caretaker was about to retire, and so he abandoned the sailing trip, sold his boat and took over the role.

Since then, Morandi, whose home is a former second world war shelter overlooking a bay, has got to know every rock, tree and animal species of the rugged islet.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Any hope that intelligence and common sense would prevail were washed away Sunday as Boca Bash on Lake Boca made it appear that Palm Beach County is COVID free.
