Georgia woman Besse Cooper, the world’s oldest person, celebrated her 116th birthday on Sunday to become only the eighth person in the world and the fourth American to ever have been verified by Guinness World Records as having reached that age.
The New Zealand Defense Force embaces a M?ori practice called a haka. It’s a collective expression of shared feelings. Each of the branches of the New Zealand service has its own unique haka, and each unit has its own, too.
This video shows soldiers of 2/1 RNZIR Battalion performing their unit haka at a military funeral. It’s quite a sight.
You see things one way, and your camera sees things differently.
So, what is the resolution of the human eye, at which a camera would be able to truly capture an image the way the eye sees it?
The answer is 576MP, the technical breakdown is as follows:
Consider a view in front of you that is 90 degrees by 90 degrees, like looking through an open window at a scene. The number of pixels would be 90 degrees * 60 arc-minutes/degree * 1/0.3 * 90 * 60 * 1/0.3 = 324,000,000 pixels (324 megapixels).
At any one moment, you actually do not perceive that many pixels, but your eye moves around the scene to see all the detail you want. But the human eye really sees a larger field of view, close to 180 degrees. Let’s be conservative and use 120 degrees for the field of view.
Then we would see 120 * 120 * 60 * 60 / (0.3 * 0.3) = 576 megapixels.
The full angle of human vision would require even more megapixels. This kind of image detail requires A large format camera to record.
Therefore, once our cameras reach 576MP, the pictures you take with your camera will look exactly the same as you see them.

New Medical Discovery – A team of scientists at the Boston Children’s Hospital have invented what is being considered one the greatest medical breakthroughs in recent years.
They have designed a microparticle that can be injected into a person’s bloodstream that can quickly oxygenate their blood. This will even work if the ability to breathe has been restricted, or even cut off entirely.
This finding has the potential to save millions of lives every year. The microparticles can keep an object alive for up to 30 min after respiratory failure. This is accomplished through an injection into the patients’ veins. Once injected, the microparticles can oxygenate the blood to near normal levels. This has countless potential uses as it allows life to continue when oxygen is needed but unavailable. For medical personnel, this is just enough time to avoid risking a heart attack or permanent brain injury when oxygen is restricted or cut off to patients.
