Young American woman Lilly was traveling to Israel to see her friends and relatives in Tel Aviv.
But Israeli border security officers somehow made a conclusion, that her MacBook was suspicious, that’s why they needed to blow it up right now.
The owner of laptop says:
After much yelling, crying and frantic phone dialing (don’t be alarmed if I called you repeatedly this morning), he took me outside to see the wreckage.
It turned out it hadn’t been quite blown up, but rather shot through with three bullets.
We were able to extract the hard drive, seemingly unscaved. Thank goodness!
Now the woman is trying to figure out how to get compensation.
Cholesterol is a normal part of your system. It is used by your body to perform a number of important functions such as the production of membranes for the cells or the activation of hormones. But it becomes a liability to your body when it goes out of control.
Here are five easy cholesterol lowering diets that you can follow to keep the balance of the different types of fats inside your body:
For hunting purpose Kazakhs catch and train Golden Eagles, mighty birds of prey common throughout the Central Asia. These huge birds weight up to 6.5 kilograms with wingspan of seven or eight feet.
The talons or claws on an eagle’s toes are curved and razor-sharp for catching and holding their prey. This gave eagles the name raptor which comes from a Latin word “rapere” meaning to grip or grasp.
Eagles are “birds of prey,” which means they hunt for their food. Unlike other birds, which eat seeds or insects flying short distance, eagles fly great distances in order to find game. Therefore eagles mastered the skill of soaring. They ride the warm flows of air and can speed up to twenty miles per hour almost without effort.
The eagle’s eyesight is especially remarkable. With vision about eight times sharper than human, they can spot a fox or rabbit up to a mile away.
Usually Kazakh hunters go for female birds as they one third heavier than males and much more aggressive. Eagles can live up to 50 years but most hunters keep the birds for about 10 years and then release them back into the wild.
Renowned National Geographic extreme photojournalist Paul Nicklen has released a new book titled Polar Obsession, which chronicles his expedition underwater and across the ice in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. From documenting the lives of polar animals to majestic landscapes, Nicklen hopes to inspire people to protect these vulnerable regions and its inhabitants.

These photographs are from Paul Nicklen’s recently released book, Polar Obsession (National Geographic Focal Point, $50), the culmination of 15 years of work photographing wildlife in the arctic and Antarctica. The book celebrates the arctic and Antarctic ecosystems and discusses the urgent need to halt global warming, which threatens their existence. For more from Nicklen on Polar Obsession, see our recent interview with the photographer.
