Navarre-Anderson Trading Post (Michigan's Oldest Building)
Visit one of the oldest known buildings that is still standing in Michigan, the Navarre-Anderson Trading Post, Just West of Monroe, Michigan.

Lonar Lake | Lonar crater | लोणार सरोवर | 50000 years Old | लोनार झील
Lonar Lake, also known as Lonar crater, is a notified National Geo-heritage Monument,saline, soda lake, located at Lonar in Buldhana district, Maharashtra, India.Lonar Lake was created by a meteor impact during the Pleistocene Epoch.It is one of the four known, hyper-velocity, impact craters in basaltic rock anywhere on Earth. The other three basaltic impact structures are in southern Brazil.Lonar Lake has a mean diameter of 1.2 kilometres (3,900 ft) and is about 137 metres (449 ft) below the crater rim. The meteor crater rim is about 1.8 kilometres (5,900 ft) in diameter.
It was identified in 1823 by a British officer named C.J.E. Alexander. Lonar Crater sits inside the Deccan Plateau—a massive plain of volcanic basalt rock created by eruptions some 65 million years ago. Its location in this basalt field suggested to some geologists that it was a volcanic crater. Today, however, Lonar Crater is understood to be the result of a meteorite impact that occurred between 35,000 and 50,000 years ago. The water in the lake is both saline and alkaline.
Geologists, ecologists, archaeologists, naturalists. and astronomers have published studies of various aspects of this crater lake ecosystem.Lonar
The crater's age is usually estimated to be 52,000 ± 6,000 years (Pleistocene), although a study published in 2010 gives an age of 570,000 ± 47,000 years.The Smithsonian Institution, the United States Geological Survey, Geological Society of India, the University of Sagar and the Physical Research Laboratory have conducted extensive studies of the site.Biological nitrogen fixation was discovered in this lake in 2007. A recent study, conducted by IIT Bombay found that the minerals, in the lake soil, are very similar to the minerals found in moon rock brought back during Apollo Program.

RV FLIP (FLoating Instrument Platform) is an open ocean research vessel owned by the Office of Naval Research and operated by the Marine Physical Laboratory of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.The ship is a 355 feet (108 meters) long vessel designed to partially flood and pitch backward 90 degrees, resulting in only the front 55 feet (17 meters) of the vessel pointing up out of the water, with bulkheads becoming decks. When flipped, most of the buoyancy for the platform is provided by water at depths below the influence of surface waves, hence FLIP is a stable platform mostly immune to wave action, like a spar buoy. At the end of a mission, compressed air is pumped into the ballast tanks in the flooded section and the vessel returns to its horizontal position so it can be towed to a new location.The ship is frequently mistaken for a capsized ocean transport ship
FLIP is designed to study wave height, acoustic signals, water temperature and density, and for the collection of meteorological data. Because of the potential interference with the acoustic instruments, FLIP has no engines or other means of propulsion. It must be towed to open water, where it drifts freely or is anchored. In tow, FLIP can reach speeds of 7--10 knots.
FLIP weighs 700 long tons (711 tonnes) and carries a crew of five, plus up to eleven scientists. It is capable of operating independently during month-long missions without resupply,being able to operate worldwide but the normal area is the west coast of the United States. The vessel operates out of a home base at the Scripps Nimitz Marine Facility in San Diego, California.

Wheel Cut Mobile Hair Salon
Mobile Hair Salon
Here's a revolutionary way to cut your hair. Not the usual run-of-the-mill hair dressing salon, boutique or otherwise, upscale or down-to-earth mamak hole-in-the-wall. This one's a definite game-changer: it's a mobile hair salon that runs on wheels, hence 'wheel cut' - get it? And it's now finally here in Malaysia plying its trade on our roads, so to speak.
First, what's the cut on wheels like? The cut's still the same; it's cheap, fast and done the way you want it - nothing's changed - but it's the novelty of stepping into a vehicle that looks like a motorhome converted into a hair dressing salon that's such a big spin! The Wheel Cut mobile hair salon first made its appearance in Malaysia in 2008. It does its rounds every day by stationing itself at busy places in Klang - except in the evenings where you can only find it parked at various spots at the Klang pasar malam (night market).
Whether Wheel Cut has evolved from a lone wolf mobile hair salon into a full fleet making its presence felt, one thing's for certain: it offers to cut your hair in any style you fancy (just make sure you tell the hairstylist exactly how you want it), and within 10 minutes and RM15/- poorer, you get what you stepped into the mobile hair salon for. And a take-away experience of getting your hair done on wheels. And it doesn't matter whether you are male or female.
