Shifting sands reveal World War Two fighter plane lost for 65 years.

Last updated at 01:00 15 November 2007 For 65 years, this Second World War fighter had lain hidden under the surface of a beach where it crash-landed. Just a short distance above it, holidaying families have built sandcastles, strolled and swum, all unaware of its existence. But now the P-38 Lightning has re-emerged after freak weather conditions caused the sands to shift and expose its rusting frame. The U.S. aircraft - with its distinctive "twinboom" design - was discovered on the North Wales coast, but the location is being kept secret in case it is targeted by looters.

Its remains were spotted by a family in July, but it was thought to be an unmanned drone used for aerial target practice from the 1950s. However, a local aviation enthusiast recognised it from a newspaper photo and contacted a group of U.S. aircraft historians.

U. COLORADO-BOULDER (US) — A new study of cricket and katydid fossils suggests the insects evolved ears long before bats, their major predator, came along. How did insects get their hearing? The 50-million-year-old cricket and katydid fossils sport some of the best-preserved fossil insect ears described to date, and they are helping researchers trace the evolution of the insect ear.

Insects hear with help from some very unusual ears, say the collaborators, paleontologist Dena Smith of the University of Colorado Boulder‘s Museum of Natural History and University of Illinois Professor Roy Plotnick. Grasshoppers have ears on their abdomens. Insects have evolved ears at least 17 times in different lineages, says Smith, also an assistant professor in Colorado’s geological sciences department.

Modern insects use their ears to tune in to each other’s chirps, trills, and peeps. Did insect ears get an upgrade when bats came to be? More news from University of Colorado: Slavery Footprint - Results. Dear , As a supporter of your business, I wanted to let you know I've recently become aware of an issue that affects us both: modern-day slavery. There are over 27 million people enslaved today, many of whom make the things we use and buy. This issue is quickly becoming a priority for millions of consumers world wide.

I'd like to know how much your company has investigated and mitigated the potential exposure to forced labor in your supply management systems. Do you have a robust code of conduct that is current with recent forced labor data and prevention recommendations? I'm certain we share the same values of freedom and I know it’s challenging to address this complex issue. My request is simple.
