(CREDIT: Creative Commons) In a breathtaking discovery, esteemed historian and anthropologist David Adkins has begun a daring journey that could unveil a fabled trove, rumored to encompass the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail, concealed beneath the venerable Sinai Park House near Burton. Famed for his earlier unearthing of the 10,000-year-old skull “Greta,” David Adkins entertains the conviction that the elusive treasures of the Knights Templar might lie hidden within a complex network of subterranean passages and chambers beneath this grand estate. Sinai Park House, a majestic landmark in Burton, is believed to rest upon caverns of such vastness that they could potentially rival the size of Westminster Abbey, as asserted by a geologist.

‘Like a Noah’s Ark of plants’: Conservation facility in the UK builds up collection of 2.4 billion seeds

‘Like a Noah’s Ark of plants’: Conservation facility in the UK builds up collection of 2.4 billion seeds

[ad_1] WEST SUSSEX, England: With two in five plant species at the risk of extinction, giving a safe home to some of the world’s most threatened flora is a pressing concern. In an effort to address the problem, the Millennium Seed Bank in the United Kingdom has built up a collection of 2.4 billion seeds representing more than 40,000 species.  They come from around 11,000 trees and shrub species. The huge collection of wild plant seeds from around the world is kept safe underground in rural Sussex in England. They include contributions from Mozambique, Madagascar, and Armenia. The seeds are X-rayed, dried, weighed, and sorted, then kept as a backup of the world’s wild plant species. “There are various objectives. I would say perhaps the two main ones are first of all, to create almost like a Noah’s Ark of plants so that if anything goes extinct, then we can use the seeds to reintroduce them to the wild,” said Asia coordinator of Millennium Seed Bank Partnership Kate Hardwick. “But a more immediate use is …

Ark, one of England’s largest academy trusts, said Marshall had “indicated earlier in the year his intention to step down from the Ark Schools board to focus on other philanthropic and business commitments”. The trust claimed this comment was made during a confidential board discussion at the end of last year. The News Agents podcast and Hope Not Hate, a charity opposing far-right extremism, reported in February that Marshall had retweeted and liked content “which is on the most extreme end of political opinion about Islam” from a private account on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Scientists may have just located Noah’s Ark

[ad_1] Recent findings shed light on the existence of humans at this site during the period between 5500 and 3000 BC. (CREDIT: Shutterstock) In what some are calling a discovery of biblical proportions, an international team of scientists and researchers may have found evidence pointing to the location of the legendary Noah’s Ark. Nestled in the eastern mountains of Turkey, recent findings shed light on the existence of humans at this site during the period between 5500 and 3000 BC. According to a recent report in the Turkish newspaper Hürriyet, rock and soil samples from the site showed the presence of clay-like materials, marine materials and seafood. This suggests the area might have been underwater at some point, fueling the theory that this could be the resting place of Noah’s Ark. The research collaboration includes experts from three renowned universities from Turkey and the U.S. who began investigating the site in 2021. Located less than 2 miles from the Iran-Turkey border, in the Doğubayazıt district of Ağrı lies the Durupinar formation. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) The …

The News Agents podcast and Hope Not Hate, a charity opposing far-right extremism, reported last week Marshall had retweeted and liked content “which is on the most extreme end of political opinion about Islam” from a private account on X, formerly known as Twitter.

They said he also liked another post that stated: “There has never been a country that has remained peaceful with a sizeable Islamic presence.

The Ark of Covenant and Holy Grail could be hidden beneath this English house

[ad_1] The imposing landmark in Burton may be lying on caverns vast enough to contain Westminster Abbey, according to one geologist. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) In a stunning revelation, renowned historian and anthropologist David Adkins has embarked on a quest that may lead to the discovery of a legendary treasure, including the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail, concealed beneath the historic Sinai Park House near Burton.

Climate-crisis deniers sought for exclusive Florida residence. Private ark essential | Gaia Vince

[ad_1] Reality deniers with big pockets are sought by a family of Floridian property developers hoping to sell the most expensive home in the US: a waterfront property on the market for $295m (£234m). The compound squats on Gordon Pointe peninsula, a spit of beachfront in south-west Florida, extending perilously into the Gulf of Mexico. The late financier John Donahue bought the land for $1m in 1985, when it was a beautiful remote nature spot, protected by mangroves, with a small fisherman’s cottage on it. He soon razed this and replaced it with McMansions with de rigueur swimming pools and lawns. Offered for your $295m are three houses with parking for yachts and other conveniences for the wealthy sea-level-rise gambler. The Donahue family is selling at the right time. This is one of the parts of the world most vulnerable to climate impacts, with sea levels rising three times faster than the global average, and increasing risk from hurricane damage. The whole neighbourhood, Port Royal, has been categorised as at “extreme risk of flooding” over …
