Osaka Stadium's Housing Expo  

Where the magnificent Namba Parks stand today at Naniwa-ku, in Osaka, Japan, once stood Osaka's baseball stadium. Opened in 1950 with a capacity of 32,000 people, the stadium was home to the Nankai Hawks baseball team, but when the Hawks moved to Heiwadai Stadium in 1988, the stadium was sold to Fukuoka City. For the next two years, Osaka Stadium became the temporary home of the Kintetsu Buffaloes, who played about a dozen games here. The last official baseball game was held on August 2, 1990....

Project Riese: The Secret Nazi Tunnels in Poland  

Eighty kilometers to the south of Wroclaw, underneath Poland's oldest mountain range, the Owl Mountains, lies a massive underground complex and tunnel system built by the Nazis. The exact purpose of these tunnels is not known, nor is its true size because the complex was never completed. More than nine kilometers were excavated, but only a small section was reinforced by steel and concrete before the Nazis were driven out of the region by the arriving Red Army. Some say the tunnels were meant ...

The Monument That Was Also A Science Lab  

The Monument to the Great Fire of London that stands near the northern end of London Bridge is a pretty well known landmark. It's a tall Doric column decorated with dragons near the base and topped with a golden orb. Its height—202 feet—corresponds to the distance from its base to the bakery in Pudding Lane where the fire started. On the inside of the hollow column is a spiraling staircase that stretches all the way to the top, and out on to a viewing platform. Completed in 1677, the Monum...

The 4-Ton Steel Ball That Produces Artificial Earthquakes  

In the wooded hillside of Hainberg, near Göttingen, Germany, stands an old seismological station. The Wiechert Earthquake Station was built in 1902 by the noted German physicist and geophysicist, Emil Wiechert, to carry out research in the emerging field of geophysics. Wiechert built several seismographs there to record tremors. These instruments have been recording data uninterruptedly since then, becoming the world's oldest, still functioning seismograph. Emil Wiechert was interested in lea...

The woman appears to be of average build—not the strongman (or strongwoman) type that we see on the TV sometimes, performing stunts such as this as a show of strength. She appears to be enjoying herself and apparently unharmed. The accompanied caption identified the vehicle as a Chevrolet-manufactured "Albee Rolli...

The World's Loneliest Tree, And How it Holds Clues to a New Epoch  

In the remote Campbell Island, situated more than 600 km south of New Zealand's mainland, grows a solitary Sitka spruce that has gained distinction as the loneliest tree on earth. Its nearest neighbor is over 220 km away, on the Auckland Islands, while the nearest member of its own species is on another hemisphere altogether, across the Pacific. So how did this lonely Sitka spruce come to be where it is? Campbell Island is one of New Zealand's most southern island. It is located in a region ...

Ethiopia's Churches In The Sky  

The ancient Kingdom of Axum, now a part of Ethiopia, was one of the first nations in the world to adopt Christianity. The religion took strong foothold in 330 AD when King Ezana the Great declared it the state religion and ordered the construction of the imposing basilica of St. Mary of Tsion. Legend has it, that it here that Menelik, son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, brought the Ark of the Covenant containing the Ten Commandments. By the fifth century, nine saints from Syria, Constan

How Clowns Trademark Their Face By Painting On Eggs  

Every clown's face makeup is unique, or at least, they should be, for there is an unwritten rule within the clowning community that no clown should copy another clown's look. In order to copyright the specific facial designs of a clown, Clowns International—the world's oldest clown society—maintains a register of clown faces. But instead of keeping photographs or sketches of the clown's makeup, details are painted on ceramic eggs and decorated with collars, bow ties, wigs and miniatu...

Toronto's Camouflaged Electric Substations  

More often than not, industrial infrastructures are an eyesore, especially when they are smack in the middle of a beautiful city like Toronto. So for the past hundred years, Canada's second-largest municipal electricity distribution company, Toronto Hydro, has been disguising substations into quiet little houses that blend right in with the neighbourhood. Some appear like grand Georgian mansions or late-Victorian buildings, while others look like humble suburban homes. Even the most sharp-eyed...

The Cultybraggan camp located near the Scottish village of Comrie, in Perthshire, is one of the last remaining World War 2 Prisoner of War Camp in the UK. Spread over nearly 14 hectares, this former camp site contains approximately 90 huts built of corrugated iron—the famous Nissen huts, named after the founder, Peter Norman Nissen. These huts became common in POW camps across Britain and were supposed to be temporary structures. But in Cultybraggan camp, they have stayed the same having been ...

Decorating Fences With Trash, The New Zealander Way  

New Zealanders have a unique way of discarding their trash—they hang them on fences. Bras, boots, toothbrushes, bicycles, everything that has had their useful life over gets hung en masse on roadside fences. Perhaps, the most famous of them is the Cardrona Bra Fence in Central Otago. The fence began one morning in 1999 when four women's bras were found attached to the wire fence alongside the road and fluttering in the breeze. Rumor is that a group of women were celebrating the new year at ...

It was here on Gruinard Island, during the Second World War, a team of scientists from the military research facilities at Porton Down demonstrated to Winston Churchill the lethality of anthrax, and the feasibility of using the deadly

There was a time when an average German carried billions of marks in their pockets but could still buy nothing. A loaf of bread cost 200 billion marks. A week's pension would not buy even a cup of coffee. The mark was freefalling and its value decreasing by the minute. Restaurants stopped printing menus because by the time the food arrived the price had gone up. One guy drank the first cup of coffee at 5,000 marks. The second cup cost him 9,000 marks.
