(CNN)Scientists discovered more than 140 ancient designs that were carved in the earth by an ancient people, and they're hoping they might hold clues to the ways they lived, thousands of years in the past. Researchers from Yamagata University, in Yamagata, Japan, discovered the ancient pictures, which are known as geoglyphs, or Nasca Lines. They were carved out of the sand on a Peruvian coastal plain and resemble living things and other objects. The figures were created by removing the black stones that cover the land, exposing the white sand, the scientists said, and are categorized into two main types based on how they were likely produced. The larger Type A geoglyphs were made by removing stones to form lines, while Type B, the smaller ones, were created by removing stones to make solid-colored surfaces. The area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. At the time, just 30 geoglyphs had been identified. Before they disappear: Treasured UNESCO sites at risk from … [Read more...] about More than 140 ancient geoglyphs were found carved in the sands of Peru
Ah, the early 20th century — when being a “famed seeker of mythical creatures” was still a feasible career option! This is how Sir Lionel Frost (voiced by Hugh Jackman) plans to distinguish himself among London’s professional explorers, by procuring evidence that prehistoric beasties still walk, crawl, swim and slither among us. Sure, that whole endeavor at Loch Ness didn’t, ah, turn out so well and cost Frost his assistant, but tut tut, that was days ago! Who wants to live in the distant past? Then a letter arrives informing him that the half-man, half-ape urban legend known as the Bigfoot is very much alive, well and living in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. All Frost has to do is provide proof of the monster’s existence to the Optimates Club, the foremost collective of snooty adventure-seekers dedicated to bringing “good British table manners to savages everywhere,” and then he’ll surely be counted among their … [Read more...] about ‘Missing Link’ Review: Animated Bigfoot Buddy Comedy Feels Slightly M.I.A.

I CANT MANAGE COST OF POULTRY FEEDSJoyceFeeds constitute about 70 per cent of the total expenses in intensive poultry production systems and influence significantly egg-laying and size of broilers. It is also worth noting that poultry, like other non-ruminant livestock, are very sensitive to the nutrients availability in feeds and fluctuations may result to stress affecting productivity. Commercial feeds contain, other than energy and protein sources, essential amino acids added through a premix. They provide the birds with almost all nutrients at the required amounts for the different classes and species of birds. The best way to reduce cost is by cutting wastage. If you find left-over feeds in the feeding troughs, it may be an indicator you are supplying more than the birds require. Another way to reduce cost of feeding is by practising free-range system of production and only supplementing the birds for what is assumed to be deficit. However, this system is only viable in areas … [Read more...] about The simplest way to import an animal and growing groundnuts
