The Dutch have a saying: “God created the world, but the Dutch created the Netherlands”. Today we will see why. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Like & Share!

In the last episode we looked at how a large dike was constructed to block seawater from flooding the inner regions of the netherlands. In this episode we’re going to look at how parts of this inland water area was drained and turned into fertile land. While this is part of a series, you don’t need to have watched the first episode to understand this one. I try to make my videos as stand-alone as I can. Ever since the 16th century, large areas of land have been reclaimed from the sea and lakes, amounting to over 50% of the country’s current land area if you include every lake ever laid dry. The process of land reclamation in the Netherlands is mainly done through Poldering. It is the process of draining water from a lake or by placing dikes around an area of water and THEN draining it until you are left with very fertile land. And this is what Lely proposed: build a dike to stop the sea water, then build smaller dikes inside this newly formed lake, and one-by-one drain the water. This land was rich in clay, could be settled, and could be farmed, which in turn meant that the Dutch government could tax them, and make A LOT of money.

Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbours bedevil its boundaries to the east, south and west. Added to www.audiovideo.economist.com in February 2010. Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj Over the centuries China has grown and shrunk, and grown. It began as a unified state in a third century BC but became far larger by the time of Mongol rule in the 13th century, and again during the last imperial dynasty the Qing. In 1921 Mongolia's independence took out a huge chunk. Today's map is a legacy of empire building. Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbors still bedevil its borders. Even at the best of times China and Japan often treat each other as rivals. Their differences are sharpened by territorial feuds. A cluster of rocks called the Diaoyutai Islands, or Senkakus in Japanese, is the focus of much bickering. Japan controls them, but China says it should. And how to draw the line between their exclusive economic zones. Japan says it should be halfway between them, China claims the entire continental shelf up close to Okinawa. In 2008 both sides agreed to develop the area together but now Japan's are angry about the Chunxiao gas field, known as Shirakaba gas field in Japanese, where it thinks China is trying to suck natural gas from the Japanese economic zone. Other claims would stretch China's territory deep into Southeast Asia. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia all have competing claims with China here. In 2002 all parties agree to exercise self-restraint but tensions have been growing again recently. China said last year it wanted to develop tourism on the Paracel Islands which are also claimed by Vietnam. Again oil and gas are involved, and China wants a boat service from Hainan. Tensions are simmering again in the Himalayas too. Disagreements here with India led to a border war in 1962. China's recent worries about Tibet seem to be reviving them. China's stepped up its accusations that India is occupying what China calls South Tibet. India calls this region the state of Arunachal Pradesh. To the west India says China is occupying its territory in Aksai Chin. Talks between China and India have been getting nowhere. Finally there's Taiwan. China's long been fearful that the island might make a formal bid for independence. In the mid-1990s China made gestures that alarmed Taiwan and its backer America. America moved to aircraft carriers close to the island is warning to China to back off. Lately things have been smoother; in 2008 director rights between Taiwan and the mainland were launched along with direct sea transport and postal links. China's trying to persuade its neighbors that its rise is not to be feared but its border disputes and feud with Taiwan create widespread unease in the region. Many wonder whether a powerful China might one day try to take by force the land that it sees as its own.

An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

Check out these real mermaid sightings around the world! This top 10 list of amazing discoveries of real life mermaid bodies is absolutely intrigueing! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Ancient Objects And HOW They Were Used!" video here: https://youtu.be/0de2nV8OHJk Watch our "Most MYSTERIOUS Ocean Facts!" video here: https://youtu.be/BzrlpgRVPQg Watch our "Most STRANGE Things Found On The Beach!" video here: https://youtu.be/cQjpze_4z5U 10. British Columbia, 1967 In 1967, British Columbia became a hub of mermaid excitement when, one day, Ferry riders spotted a mermaid lounging on the shore of Mayne Island. They claimed they saw a topless, blonde woman with the tail of a porpoise sitting on the beach shore. Some witnesses even became very upset, as they believed they saw the mermaid eating a raw salmon. One tourist from Iowa even managed to take a picture. After the sighting, the mermaid was seen one more time the following week. As the locals got swept up by the spotting of this mysterious mermaid, the town locals began to seek any information relating to her. The town newspaper, The Colonist, put up a $25,000 reward for the mermaid. Arrangements were even made for the mermaid to have room and board once she was found and successfully acclimated into the town setting. Although many believe that the whole thing was a charade, many still believe that what they saw was real. 9. Scotland, 1830 Mermaids are a part of Scotland’s countless mysteries and legends. It’s not surprising, then, that there would be many accounts of mermaid sightings. In 1830, the people of the island of Benbecula saw a mermaid. While cutting seaweed near the shore one day, a woman reportedly saw a miniature woman swimming in the water. Surprised by her discovery, she called many people over to view the water dweller. Some men rushed at her in the water, either to catch her or get a closer look, and the woman swam out of reach. Some boys threw stones at the frightened mermaid and one struck her in the back. A few days later, the corpse of the mermaid supposedly washed up on the shore. Like many of the other claims of mermaids, this one was small, with pale white skin and had the tail of a fish without scales. After the discovery, the sheriff of the town thought it only fitting that the mermaid have a proper burial. Someone constructed a coffin and the mermaid, wrapped in a shroud, was laid to rest above the shoreline where she was found. To this day, no one knows exactly where the mermaid was buried as no marker was left to denote the spot. 8. West Indies, 1614 John Smith, the same John Smith from Pocahontas, reported that he saw a mermaid off the coast of West Indies in 1614. According to the story, Smith saw a woman swimming parallel to the shore. He was captivated by the grace in which she moved and noted that she had ears that were too long, a nose that was too short, eyes that were too round, and green hair. He also noted that the woman was a little attractive from the waist up. From the waist down, however, she was all fish. Some doubt has been thrown on the veracity of the tale of course, otherwise where would the mystery be. One source claims he wasn’t in the West Indies but in Newfoundland. Another historian says Smith wasn’t in the West Indies in 1614, though he was there in 1607. Potato patato in this case. The same historian suggested that Alexandre Dumas fabricated the tale to give credence to his own mermaid story about a Frenchman searching for a Dutchman who had four children with a mermaid. 7. Norway, 1608 In 1608, Henry Hudson explored the cold northern waters off Norway. Written in his journal, he describes a day when he encountered a group of mermaids. Hudson claimed a mermaid appeared in the water, saw his crew and called up more of her mermaid sisters. He described the women as being as big as the men in his crew, with very white skin and long dark hair. He claimed their tails looked like a dolphin’s but were spotted like a mackerel. Hudson was thrilled that he had discovered mermaids. What makes this case so strange is that it occurred in the Bering Sea. Most mermaid sightings are discounted as sailors mistaking animals, often manatees, as mermaids. However, no manatees swim the waters of the Bering Sea. Naturalist Philip Henry Gosse, in his mid-1800s work The Romance of Natural History, believes it to be impossible that Hudson mistook an animal for this mermaid. He believes seasoned sailors such as Hudson would be able to identify animals in that location easily. Gosse believes either Hudson made this entire story up or Hudson saw something truly unique to the realm of science. We may never know.

Check out the most mysterious ocean phenomena! From bizarre and strange deep sea mysteries to ocean phenomenon you won't believe actually exist, this top 10 list of unexplained natural phenoma is very mysterious!

A Steaming Sea While not unknown in terms of cause, it is still mysterious that this happens at all. Above certain bodies of water, depending on temperature and the weather around it, a sea or ocean can actually appear to "steam". It has also been called other things like a foggy or smokey sea. 12. Sea Foam From "boiling" seas to seas that can apparently create foam, this is by and large one of the weirdest things that people can see if they go to the ocean. As you can see, it's literal foam, and it piles up rather high along the shoreline. Now, unlike the steam I showed you before, this one doesn't have a definitive explanation. 11. The Mystery Of The USS Scorpion The USS Scorpion was a nuclear submarine that disappeared in 1968. It was a fast attack submarine and was known for its special operations. It was able to film a soviet missile launch and flee the scene before being caught. There were 99 crewmen aboard and when it tried to deliver a signal, and failed to return to port on time, it was presumed lost. 10. Beached Whales You’ve probably all seen the pictures and footage of people trying to help a whale get off of the beach and into the water once more. It is a rare and impactful thing to see such a large creature stuck and helpless in the sand. But, have you ever asked...how did it get on the beach in the first place? 9. The Green Flash While not technically an ocean thing, it's a series of events that is influenced by the ocean. If you look at the sunrise or sunset over certain bodies of water, you'll sometimes see a "green flash". Have any of you seen it?? Let me know in the comments because I used to live near the beach but have never seen a green flash myself! 8. Underwater Volcanoes Now, everyone's heard of a Volcano, but, when you think of them, you likely think about the massive body of land rising from the depths, or a long dormant entity erupting with great power and destroying everything in its path like Pompeii. Yet, under the water, volcanoes erupt more than you think. In fact, it happens in a way that is both mysterious, and beautiful. 7. Rogue Waves Anyone who's sailed in seas with massive waves know that there are several things to fear. But few are as terrifying and fearsome as Rogue Waves. Though there are explanations as to why they happen, it doesn't help the ships that get hit by them. 6. Bimini Road All roads lead to Rome, and many people are wondering if that’s the case with Bimini Road in the Bahamas. Researchers and archaeologists of all kinds have come to study the huge, flat stones that are set perfectly for about half a mile long. 5. Red Tide Some of these phenomena are downright deadly. Such as the infamous Red Tide. No, not the Alabama football team, the actual Red Tide! This event is one of the most dangerous things threatening the ocean and its inhabitants, and it even threatens humanity. 4. The Convergence The Convergence is another name for the meeting of the Baltic Sea with the North Sea in Skagen, Denmark. These are two bodies of water that very naturally come together off the coast of Denmark. Here’s a map so you can see what I’m talking about!! 3. Bioluminescence For creatures under the sea, there are some who have learned a very interesting technique to ward off foes, Bioluminescence. Or more literally, the ability to make yourself glow. It's not hard to imagine the shock and fear of seeing something you're about to eat begin to glow with blinding light. 2. Atlantis The legend of Atlantis is one of the greatest stories ever told. But the question has always been, is it really a legend? The story goes as far back as Plato, who is not known to be a liar, and yet, despite numerous surveys of the ocean, it's never been found. 1. The Bermuda Triangle The holy grail, perhaps the most unexplained phenomena in the history of the oceans...the Bermuda Triangle. This place, which spans from Florida to Puerto Rico to Bermuda, has claimed the lives of many, and has sunken both ships and planes and many other things that dare to infringe upon its waters. Everyone was scared that you could go there and just disappear.

The Delta Works in the Netherlands (Holland) is the largest flood protection project in the world. This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely automated process done without human intervention.

Morbach Monster In Germany, there is a town called Wittlich that has a legend about a bad soldier who turned into a wolf beast during the days of Napoleon. This soldier who had deserted was running away and came upon this small town. So far it doesn’t sound so bad, you could argue that maybe the soldier was drafted and he didn’t want to fight with Napoleon! 8. The Flatwoods Monster On September 12th, 1952, an odd event happened in West Virginia that is still unexplained to this day. On that day, a fireball was seen in the sky. But, unlike regular meteors and comets and such, this fireball was actually seen all across the United States. The interesting thing is that the fireball was confirmed all the way from California, up to where it landed in West Virginia. 7. The Hounds of Mons In World War I, trench warfare was the dominant form of combat, which created No Man's Land all across several countries in Europe. In one such No Man's Land in Mons there was a mysterious story. A Canadian Captain, A.J. Newhouse, claimed that within the No Man's Land of Mons was a beast. He believed this because one day a patrol was sent into No Man's Land, and they never returned. When their bodies were found, they had teeth marks on their throats. 6. Kongamoto In 1932, a traveler by the name of Frank Melland was doing research for a book that he would title "Witch-Bound Africa". In this book, he noted that he spoke to tribes in West Africa that described being attacked by a lizard-like bird with large membrane wings that resembled a bat. Very unlike anything that is technically in the world today, that we know of. Unless you count the very recent “sightings” of La Gargola de Barceloneta in Puerto Rico!! There’s all kinds of creatures there!! 5. U-28 Crocodile During World War I, there was a British Steamer known as the Iberian. It was going through the waters next to Ireland when it came under attack by a U-28 German submarine. A battle commenced, and despite the Iberian fleeing with all she had, the submarine won in the end. But that's just the beginning of the story, not the end. 4. Little Bigfoot John McKinnon was a famous British Zoologist, one who helped discover many new creatures in Vietnam. He also wrote a book in 1974 that stated he found something he didn't want to know the answer to. 3. Brosno Dragon In Russia, there are people who are convinced that a creature lives in the waters of Lake Brosno. The legend goes like this, a group of Tatar horsemen, a people who numbered as much as 5 million in the late 20th century and lived in west-central Russia, were on their way to Novgorod. However, on their way, they stopped at the Brosno Lake to rest. While they did, a "reptilian monster" rushed out of the water and attacked them, killing many, and forcing the others to flee. 2. Kraken One of the most legendary monster sightings of all time has to be the one and only Kraken. A squid of such size that it would dwarf and consume massive vessels. But despite this story being born during the time of sailboats, there have been many modern day accounts of the Kraken, including some in World War II. A British Trawler was docked off of the Maldives. 1. The Mist A monster does not need a corporeal form to be frightening, as the crew of a C-130 Cargo plane found out in the Vietnam War. For Robert L. P, along with his crew saw something they truly couldn't explain. It all started when P saw a disturbance in the back of the plane.

The British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) is a British overseas territory of the United Kingdom situated in the Indian Ocean halfway between Tanzania and Indonesia. The territory comprises the seven atolls of the Chagos Archipelago with over 1,000 individual islands – many very small – amounting to a total land area of 60 square kilometres. 2. The only inhabitants are US and British military personnel and associated contractors, who collectively number around 2,500 (2012 figures). 3. The removal of Chagossians from the Chagos Archipelago occurred between 1968 and 1973. The Chagossians, then numbering about 2,000 people, were expelled by the British government to Mauritius and Seychelles to allow the United States to build a military base there. Today, the exiled Chagossians are still trying to return, arguing that the forced expulsion and dispossession was illegal. The islands are off-limits to Chagossians, casual tourists, and the media. 4. In 1965, the United Kingdom split the Chagos Archipelago from Mauritius and the islands of Aldabra, Farquhar and Desroches (Des Roches) from the Seychelles to form the British Indian Ocean Territory. The islands were formally established as an overseas territory of the United Kingdom on 8 November 1965. On 23 June 1976, Aldabra, Farquhar and Desroches were returned to Seychelles as a result of its attaining independence. On 23 June 2017, the United Nations General Assembly voted in favour of referring the territorial dispute between Mauritius and the UK to the International Court of Justice in order to clarify the legal status of the Chagos Islands archipelago in the Indian Ocean. 5. As a territory of the United Kingdom, the head of state is Elizabeth II. There is no governor appointed to represent the Queen on the territory, as there are no longer any native inhabitants. The head of government is the commissioner and an administrator, all of whom reside in the United Kingdom. The laws of the territory are based on the constitution, which gives the Commissioner full powers to make laws for the territory. As almost all residents of the BIOT are members of the United States military, however, in practice crimes are more commonly charged under United States military law. 6. Camp Justice is a settlement within the US-UK Naval Support Facility on Diego Garcia, a small, strategically located, isolated island in the Indian Ocean. It acts as the capital of the Overseas Territory. Starting as early as 2004 rumors began to surface that the United States had been using Diego Garcia as a black site for the detention and torture of individuals captured in the "Global War On Terror". 7. The territory is an archipelago of 55 islands, the largest being Diego Garcia, accounting for almost half of the total land area of the territory, which is 60 km². The terrain is flat and low, with most areas not exceeding 2 metres above sea level. The climate is tropical marine; hot, humid, and moderated by trade winds. In 2010 545,000 square kilometres of ocean around the islands was declared a marine reserve.

But that doesn’t hold a candle to the story of the Principality of Sealand, an abandoned World War Two anti-aircraft installation struggling for recognition as the world’s smallest state. This fascinating tale begins during in 1942, when the British government decided to construct naval defense installations known as the Maunsell Forts. Built on shore and then floated out to the North Sea, east of Suffolk, the forts were meant to protect the United Kingdom and its shipping from German air attacks. -------------------------------------------------------- ►Article link:https://goo.gl/BRvFic --------------------------------------------------------- But while the forts certainly looked impressive, the conclusion of the war made them obsolete, and they were abandoned in the 1950s. That was, at least, until British “pirate” radio stations – so-called for broadcasting pop music illegally outside the government’s jurisdiction – took over several of the forts in the 1960s. This is how Roy Bates, a former British army major of the Royal Fusiliers, discovered Fort Roughs in 1966. Indeed, Bates had originally planned to use the fort to transmit his own pirate radio station, “Radio Essex.” ************************************************************** ►You can support the channel: PATREON https://goo.gl/KtaKrp ►Image credits: Image: Royal Navy ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com #watchjojo

(NOTE: I strongly encourage everyone to view the video in its entirety to have a much better understanding of the topic. Please like the video so it reaches a bigger audience and leave any comments if you have any feedback or questions. Thanks for watching.) Most international law experts believe that China's so-called "indisputable sovereignty" over its maritime claim in the South China Sea has little merit, and is illegal under the United Convention on the Law of the Sea. The United States said that China's expansive claim increases the risk of confrontation, undermines regional stability, and dims the prospects for diplomacy, and paved the way for "US pivot" to Pacific. Philippines declares the claim is illegal and violates Philippines' and other nations' sovereign rights under UNCLOS. The Vietnamese president said that it has no legal foundation and scientific basis and rejected China's assertion. China defends its claim citing historical basis, most of which were taken from its imperial archives and ancient records. It has recently intensified its claim in the South China Sea which many believe to be a "gunboat diplomacy" against its weaker maritime neighbors. South China Sea is composed of three main areas: Spratlys, (the biggest); Paracel, (the next biggest); and Scarborough Shoal (the smallest). All of them are being claimed by People's Republic of China and Taiwan. Spratlys is also being claimed partly by the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, and Indonesia; Scarborough by the Philippines; and Paracel by Vietnam. CORRECTION: Indonesia is not a claimant of the Spratlys. Natuna Islands, an Indonesian territory in the northwestern waters of Borneo and which China also claims is not part of the Spratlys.

Islands throughout the world that are shrouded in mystery! From Mexico's creepy Island of the Dolls to the Naval Base on Diego Garcia the histories of these islands are full of myths and secrecy. #9. “Island of Socotra”- Off the coast of Somalia in the Indian ocean is an island that seems as though it belongs on another planet. Socotra Island has long been theorized as a location for the biblical Garden of Eden, and just by looking at pictures of it you can see why. The island is home to several species of plants that are can’t be found anywhere else on Earth. There are the Dr. Seuss looking Adenium socotranum which have big bulbous trunks and tiny gnarly branches that sprout from their tops and bear flowers that are a marvelous shade of pink. There odd appearance makes them kind of look like giant root vegetables. Then there are the Dragon’s Blood Trees which look like perfect natural umbrellas. The have trunks that resemble that of an average tree but their thick tightly bunched branches shoot upwards and form a mushroom like crown. Socotra is also home to three geographically unique species of bird: the socotra sunbird, socotra grosbeak and socotra starling. There aren’t many other creatures that inhabit the island other than that of bats and insects and the last time it was home to man was around the year 100 A.D. Adding to the mystery, the island has been the site of dozens of shipwrecks over the years. #8. “Palmyra Atoll”- Though technically not an island but an atoll that formed from coral the mysterious nature of Palmyra Atoll cannot be ignored. Also known as Palmyra Island, the breathtakingly beautiful ringlet sits between American Samoa and Hawaii. Though it is full of lush vegetation and appears unblemished by man the island has long be the subject of superstition and folktales. There have been several cases of violent shipwrecks and mysterious disappearances of ships on and around the island. Those who have observed the island and survived to tell their tale have claimed having seen some extremely bizarre sights like that of floating lights, ghosts and sea monsters. It is also reported to be the home of an incredible amount of sharks who may have developed a distinct taste for humans. There is also the story of lost Incan treasure that may still be on the island. These tales and others which cannot be discussed do to their graphic nature have made Palmyra the stuff of legend amongst sailors and Pacific Islanders for centuries. #7. “Vulcan Island”- Vulcan Island in the Philippines isn’t necessarily an island that is shrouded in mystery but it definitely is a mindblowing locale. On the northern Philippine island of Luzon there sits a lake named Taal and in that lake there is an island called Taal Volcano, inside this island is the world’s largest crater lake and inside of this lake there sits yet another island, known as Vulcan Island. Not only is Vulcan Island one of the most fascinating of natural recursion it happens to be located on one of the most active volcanoes in the entire Pacific Ocean. Because of this fact it is incredibly dangerous to visit Vulcan Island as it has been quaking and bubbling consistently since 1991.

Check out what happened to atlantis! This top 10 list shows the most current theories surrounding the location of the mysterious los city of atlantis!

It’s the Island of Santorini A common view is that Atlantis was actually part of Santorini, a small island in the East Mediterranean that was partly-destroyed by the mighty Volcano of Thera in 1646 BC. Yeah, a looong time ago. Geologists have suggested that if you reconstruct the island of Santorini, you can see that this complete version, before it was destroyed by the volcano, used to be Plato’s mysterious island of legend! 9. The Black Sea Some are happy to believe that Atlantis was just a made up story of legend. But others believe it was a real place. Not only that, but it was actually something else. The theory of Atlantis being located in the Black Sea region is a great example of this. It all centers on the rise of ocean levels following the last Ice Age. 8. Under Antarctica Atlantis is usually believed to have somewhere warm, possibly around the Mediterranean, and you’d probably need your sunscreen (if it had been invented yet). However an American historian thought the truth was very different. And colder! Prof. Charles A Hapgood went on record in the 1950s as believing the mythical island was in fact, part of Antarctica. 7. Is It Based on Truth? Atlantis is often portrayed as being the perfect society, a peaceful utopia that was very technologically advanced. However, if you look at where the legend started, in Plato’s dialogues written in 330 BC, he describes a place that is just like any other. According to him, it was a technologically advanced society that was wealthy, and had a very powerful military but it was also corrupt. He claims that Atlantis battled against the city of Athens who came out the hero. 6. It was founded by Lemurians An old idea about Atlantis is that it’s connected to the lost continent of Lemuria. Lemuria was believed to be located in the Indian or Pacific oceans but their continent sunk due to volcanic activity. They were beings who could travel between dimensions by altering the matter in their bodies. Plate tectonic theory and the existence of other continents strongly discount that this ever existed. 5. Lost in the Bermuda Triangle Plato talks about how Atlantis was swallowed by the sea in a single day. Even so, you’d think that over the centuries someone would have stumbled on something concrete to prove the island existed right? Well this kind of happened in the late 1960s. 4. It’s in the Bahamas If you’re in the United States then Atlantis may be closer than you think. To be more precise it could be 50 miles east of Miami! There lies the island of Bimini, part of a chain of islands in the Bahamas. Just 20 feet (6m) under the water there are some mysterious stones which could show the existence of Plato’s fabled kingdom. 3. Founded by Aliens You know I couldn’t leave this theory out, since so many people out there actually believe this stuff, no thanks to Ancient Aliens on the History Channel! Supposedly aliens landed on our planet in its infancy and helped in the development of our ancient cultures, one of which was Atlantis. 2. It’s in Morocco A German computer genius named Michael Hübner came up with a unique approach to finding Atlantis in 2008 when he gave a presentation at the Atlantis Conference in Athens. Others had taken an archaeological approach or used mysticism to locate Plato’s fantasy island. 1.Plato Made It Up I’m sad to say that the most realistic theory is that Atlantis was made up by Plato, the Athenian philosopher who first told the world about it. Plato lived between 424-328 BC. The legendary island with an advanced civilization was described in his Dialogues titled ‘Timaeus’ and ‘Critias’ which were written around 330 BC.

Welcome back to Top 5 Supreme, the one channel you can count on to bring you the best tops list on the internet, every day! Today is no different as we’ve prepared a very special video for you, as we’ll be exploring the depths of just how strange things here on earth can be! Today’s title is called This is the Most Strangest Video You Will Ever See! That’s right we’re bringing you the weirdest, strangest, coolest creatures ever caught on camera! Before we get started with today’s video don’t forget to click the bell to get notified every single day with the best Top’s you’ll ever see. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to this channel. So let’s get rolling! 5 Country Walk OK let’s start here with number 5. A guy is out in the country taking a walk one day when he starts hearing some very strange noises that appear to be coming from out of a well. As he makes his way over to the sounds he approaches them very cautiously. Then, as he looks down he sees this . . . what in the heck could that be? Humanoid face, bright glowing eyes. . . Not only are the eyes glowing, but they’re glowing a bright, purplish color. Now this is pretty scary, but we’re at the tip of the iceberg here. Let’s keep moving down the list to see what else we can find. 4 Water Creature It’s been a little over a year since Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on the state of Texas in the United States. Not only were thousands of family’s misplaced and an almost unmeasurable amount of lives were lost, but strange things that typically dwell in the depths of the ocean were also deposited on land. . . and some were quite startling. Like this thing. What the heck is that? Where exactly do you find one of these hideous, sharp toothed, eel looking animals in the waters? If we knew where they were typically located I’m sure plenty of people would stay clear of those waters until some more information was provided about this strange animal. 3 Sea Anomoly OK let’s keep it moving. Check this thing out. Found in Vietnam earlier this year, this strange creature was removed from the waters of the Kien Giang Province. You can se hundreds of tiny tentacles all apparantely moving on their own. What the heck could this be? Why was it removed from the water, and more importantly why is it moving like this? Then you can see the people recording the video actually reach out and touch the strange, moving tentacles. So creepy! Imagine going snorkeling and seeing something looking like this, I’m sure I’d try to stay clear of those waters! 2 Mouth Swimmer Ok let’s keep it moving, and let’s check out one more underwater terror. Look at this guy. This extremely rare species of deep sea shark looks absolutely terrifying, scouring the ocean floors as it looks for food. But check out the way that it eats. You can see what appears to be an additional jaw potrude from what we thought was the original mouth of this crazy looking shark. Watch how it brings in this unsuspecting fish. Sheesh. Now this is one underwater sea monster that I would definitely try to stay away from on my next swimming adventure. 1 YouTube Ghost? OK let’s round this list off here with number 1. Bobby Mares is a popular Youtuber, and a little while ago he claimed that there was a ghost in his room. He set up his camera to record overnight as he was sleeping, and this is his alleged proof. You can see, after Bobby has apparantely laied down for the night, his closet door slowly opens all on it’s own. Then his small dog walks into the closet to investigate right before the door slams shut! Once the dog is let out, the door is shut down again. Creepy. What do you guys think? Do you believe in ghosts? Or is this popular Youtuber just – pulling our leg? And that’s today’s video! If you like today’s video leave a thumbs up and share with all of your friends!

True Buddhists fervently believe in this subterranean empire, which they say has millions of inhabitants and many cities, including the capital Shamballah, where a Supreme Ruler dwells. They believe the Dalai Lama is his terrestrial representative, and his messages are transmitted to the lamas for thousands of years, These terrestrial inhabitants have lived here, sheltering humanity after terrestrial cataclysms.. The Russian artist, philosopher, and explorer, Nicolas Roerich, published that a Tibetan lama revealed the capital of Tibet was connected by a tunnel with Shamballah, the heart of the Subterranean empire of Aghartha. And that the entrance of this tunnel was guarded by lamas who were sworn to keep its actual whereabouts a secret from outsiders those who are led through this underground passage travel deep into the earth through areas where it becomes so narrow, it can be difficult to pass through.

Where China DF-26 anti ship missile as two US warship enter South China Sea - Two U.S. warships sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea on Monday, a U.S. official told Reuters, a move likely to anger Beijing at a time of tense relations between the world’s two biggest economies. " USS Spruance & USS Preble Sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands as part of what the US Navy calls a "freedom of navigation operation. Where China DF-26 anti ship missile as two US warship enter south china sea? The DF-26 is China's most powerful anti-ship missile. It's 46 feet tall and weighs 44,000 pounds. "The DF-26 comes with a 'modular design,' meaning that the launch vehicle can accommodate two types of nuclear warheads and several types of conventional warheads," the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington D.C. reported. With a range of up to 2,500 miles and 4,000-pound payload, with satellite targeting the DF-26 in theory could strike U.S. Navy warships across the western Pacific Ocean. "Even when launched from deeper inland areas of China, the DF-26 has a range far-reaching enough to cover the South China Sea," an unnamed military expert told Global Times . The DF-26 could be vulnerable to the latest American defenses. The U.S. Navy's SM-6 interceptor missile theoretically is capable of hitting a DF-26 in two phases of its flight -- shortly after launch, as the Chinese missile is climbing and gaining speed, and then again in the DF-26's terminal phase, as it arcs down toward its target. The missile, which arms U.S. Navy cruisers and destroyers, completed three successful test interceptions in 2015, 2016 and 2017, according to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency. In moving a dozen DF-26 launchers to Inner Mongolia, around 2,000 miles from the Spratly Islands, China reportedly aims to protect the rockets from boost-phase interception. "A mobile missile launch from deep in the country's interior is more difficult to intercept," Global Times paraphrased a Beijing-based military expert as saying. The SM-6 can travel no farther than a few hundred miles. If China attacked an American warship from a missile base in Mongolia, the American ship's only chance of hitting the rocket would be during the final seconds of its flight. An expert told Global Times a terminal interception is more difficult than a boost-phase interception would be. "After the missile enters a later stage, its speed is so high that chances for interception are significantly lower." Even if the Americans can't shoot down the DF-26, it's unclear that the rocket reliably could hit a moving ship at sea from 2,000 miles away. "The accuracy of the DF-26 is uncertain," CSIS explained, "with speculators estimating the [circular error probability] at intermediate range between 150 to 450 meters," or around 500 to 1,500 feet. In any event, China has prepared its missile base near Alxa for many more missiles. "It features a garrison complex, a probable missile storage and handling facility and over 100 prepared launch positions," Jane's reported. The Alxa base is outside the range of detection by U.S. radars such as the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence system in South Korea, the Hong Kong South China Morning Post pointed out .

China Navy Shocked: US Destroyers Sail in The Disputed South China Sea as Trade Tensions Simmer The U.S. sent two warships close by islands claimed by Beijing in the disputed South China Sea on Monday, the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet said, as American negotiators arrived in the Chinese capital for talks aimed at resolving a trade spat between the two powers. A spokesman for the 7th Fleet told The Japan Times that the guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble had “conducted freedom of navigation operations (FONOPS) in the South China Sea,” with the two vessels sailing “within 12 nautical miles” (22 km) of the Spratly Islands. The mission was conducted “in order to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” 7th Fleet spokesperson Lt. Joe Keiley said. While the 7th Fleet was not specific about what features the two destroyers had sailed near, Reuters, quoting an unidentified U.S. official, reported that they had passed by Mischief Reef, which is occupied by China but also claimed by Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines. Mischief Reef has undergone a massive land reclamation project and is home to a military-grade airfield. Recent reports have also said the islet has emplacements for mis-siles, extensive storage facilities and a range of installations that can track satellites, foreign military activity and communications. Beijing has constructed a series of military outposts throughout the waterway, which includes vital sea lanes through which about $3 trillion in global trade passes each year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei have overlapping claims in the waters, where the U.S., Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies also routinely operate. China says its facilities are for defensive purposes, but some experts say this is part of a concerted bid to cement de facto control of the waters. China’s Foreign Ministry reacted angrily to the latest FONOP, blasting the U.S. ships for entering what it called its “territorial seas … without permission.” Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that the Chinese had side immediately identified the U.S. ships and warned them to leave, adding that China would continue to take necessary measures to safeguard itself. Meanwhile, the U.S. and China remain locked in a trade war, with the two sides attempting to reach a deal ahead of a March 1 deadline, when U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports are scheduled to increase to 25 percent from 10 percent. Preliminary discussions by lower-level U.S. negotiators were to be held in Beijing on Monday, before U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin step in for the main event on Thursday and Friday. Some observers say the ramped-up pace of U.S. FONOPs could be intended to heap pressure on Beijing amid the ongoing trade talks. The U.S. has denied this is the case. “We conduct routine and regular freedom of navigation operations, as we have done in the past and will continue to in the future,” the 7th Fleet’s Keiley said. “FONOPs are not about any one country, nor are they about making political statements.” He noted that U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region “on a daily basis,” including in the South China Sea, and that the United States “will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe.” In mid-January, U.S. and British warships conducted military exercises in the South China Sea for the first time since China fortified its islands there. The U.S. has also ramped up its solo FONOPs, including an operation early last month that saw one of its destroyers pass near the Paracel Island chain, north of the Spratlys, in the South China Sea. Just a day after that operation, Chinese state-run media announced that Beijing’s so-called carrier killer anti-ship mis-sile had been deployed to the country’s northwest — a move that it appeared to link to missions in the South China Sea. The missile, known as the DF-26, reportedly has a range of 3,000-4,000 km, and the report alluded to the U.S. operations, quoting an unidentified expert as noting that it served as “a good reminder that China is capable of safeguarding its territory.” “Even when launched from deeper inland areas of China, the DF-26 has a range far-reaching enough to cover the South China Sea,” the expert said.

From the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, to the unreal communist monument in Bulgaria, these are 10 RESTRICTED Abandoned Places ! 6. North Brother Island If you live in New York City you might have seen this island before. It is located between the Bronx and Rikers Island, and it is definitely off limits. The island has a long and sad history as a quarantine zone dating back to the 1880’s when a hospital dedicated to smallpox was built. The most famous patient on the island is without a doubt Typhoid Mary, the first human in the US to be identified as an asymptomatic carrier of typhoid fever. The remains of the quarantine hospital still stand strong, but the island has been taken over by dense brush and wildlife 5.The 1936 Olympic Village Regarded as the most infamous Olympic games in history, the site of the 1936 “Nazi Games” in Berlin has been left to the elements. The people of Berlin want nothing to do with it, maybe because it is connected to WW2 or maybe because it was under soviet control for decades, there are certainly many factors at play here. This is the oldest olympic village that has any hope of being restored to its former glory, but it will be an almost impossible feat since no one wants to donate money towards the cause. 4.Maunsell Sea Forts These haunting sea forts are located in the Thames Estuary (where the river meets the sea) and were built during WW2. They were part of England’s defense system and served their purpose until the late 50’s. After that, some of the forts were the location of a few pirate radio stations, and after it was all said and done, the buildings were deemed unsafe and the general public has been severely restricted in visiting them. Perhaps you have heard of the Principality of Sealand ? It is an unrecognized micronation that has claimed the Rough Tower Fort, and has been falsely labeled as the “smallest country in the world”. It is not recognized by any other nation or government, and considering it has a constant population of 0, you can see why. 3. Holy Land USA With a name like Holy Land USA, you would expect something a bit more…. holy. This place falls into the “other” holy section… yes that one. 56 years ago, the Biblical theme park was built in Waterbury Connecticut, it was a place for anyone to experience the sights of Jerusalem, the Garden of Eden, and Bethleem. Alas, the park was closed down for renovations during the 80’s, and it never opened again. A group of nuns was put in charge of the place but they could not keep up with the upkeep. The place is restricted in a way, since it is still private property, but inviting front gates offer entry to anyone who dares to go in. The park has turned into a very creepy place, especially at night… 2. Six Flags Jazzland Jazzland was a fully operational amusement park that was permanently shut down after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. It is now considered as “Standing but Not Operational” and with absolutely every plan of reopening failing, this six flags location is a prime urban exploration spot, the worst you will have to deal with is lazy security guards… and the fact that the whole place can be considered a giant death trap. In 2013, the movie Percy Jackson: Sea Monsters filmed on location at the park, and many other studios followed their lead. The most famous of them being Jurassic World. And now for NUMBER 1, but first, the answer to our question. On June 15, 1904, PS General Slocum, a passenger steam boat caught on fire near the the North Brother Island, and bodies from the ship littered the coast. In total, 1,021 people died, and 321 survived to tell the tale. 1. The Buzludzha Monument When looking at this massive saucer shaped building it isn’t hard to believe that it was built during the height of Brutalism Architecture in the 70’s. The monument was commissioned by the Bulgarian Communist Party and it officially opened in 1981 and it closed down not even 10 years later with the fall of communism in the country. After it was abandoned, no one really cared for it, at all. The building fell into complete disarray and is littered with graffiti and broken glass. And yet, there is something that attracts many urban explorers to this place, the front doors have been chained up for a long time, but that really hasn’t stopped anyone that wants to see the inside of the building. Roman Robroek, an urban photographer from the Netherlands, captured the spirit of the building perfectly during his trip. The larger than life monument towers over the silhouette of a man who is trying to make out what the ominous red letters above the front doors say...

Check out Why Killer Whales Are APEX Predators! This top 10 list of amazing animals that live in the oceans has some of the coolest facts you didn't know about orcas! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "REAL Mermaid Sightings Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/ChM0CBRmVsM Watch our "10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!" video here: https://youtu.be/0XROvoPCDNc Watch our "STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets!" video here: https://youtu.be/OMa96nPqz-Y 7. Why is the Killer Whale called an Orca? Both of the names come from the fear that this animal has instilled into our human hearts over the centuries. Their scientific name, Orcinus Orca, comes from the mythical Orcus. You may not have heard much about him but he was the Roman and the underworld, AND the punisher of broken promises. The genus Orcinus means “belonging to Orcus”. 6. Killer Whales Can’t Smell The killer whale has very well-developed eyesight. The convex or spherical lens of marine mammals differs vastly from those of land mammals. A marine mammal's eyes compensate for the lack of refraction at the cornea interface by having a more powerful spherical lens. Killer whales also have a well-developed acute sense for hearing underwater, and they process sounds at a much higher speed than humans. They can hear each other from more than 10 miles away. 5. Hunting Strategies Like I’ve said before Orcas are smart! They are highly social and hunt in coordinated packs. Their ingenuity and predatory intelligence is passed down from one generation to the next. Orcas will adapt their strategies according to their prey. They use echolocation to find their prey, sending out sonar clicks that bounce back to them and once they locate the target, it is ON! 4. Do they live up to their name? Orcas aren’t whales themselves. They belong to the dolphin family (Delphinidae) and it is the largest of all dolphins. Whalers working off the coast of Australia claimed that Killer Whales would help them hunt other whales. 3. Killer whales have a unique dialect Killer whales, just like all aquatic mammals, depend heavily on underwater sound for orientation, feeding, and communication. There are three different categories of music that killer whales produce: clicks, whistles, and pulsed calls. Clicks are commonly heard during social interactions but are also mainly used for navigating and locating prey and other possible obstacles in the surrounding environment. 2. Great White Shark vs Killer Whale It’s very hard to imagine the terrifying great white shark as prey. In 2017, beachgoers were horrified to stumble across the carcasses of Great White sharks washed up on the beaches in South Africa. These bodies ranged in size, from as small as nine feet to as big as sixteen feet, but they all had large sets of puncture marks behind their pectoral fins. What was eating the apex predator of the sea?? 1. Orcas and Humans While so far their behavior may seem intimidating and violent, it is important to note that many Native American tribes respected the killer whale and believed they were a special protector of humankind. Killer whales were symbolic animals representative of mightiness and vigor, qualities aspired to by warriors. They were referred to as the “lords of the ocean” and would protect the waters with the help of dolphins.

What’s the story? Over the last two years China has dramatically stepped up land reclamation work on reefs and atolls it claims in the Spratly Island chain in the South China Sea, also claimed by the Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei. Chinese ships have been dredging new harbours, while cranes have been erected in an attempt to build artificial islands atop submerged reefs. There is evidence of airstrips being built. The US has protested that the work is illegal and destabilising and for months the Pentagon has been pushing the White House to take a firmer stance. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/27/tensions-and-territorial-claims-in-the-south-china-sea-the-guardian-briefing http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

INTRODUCTION: U.S has sent two. B-1B bombers in South China Sea escorted by American and South Korean jet fighter. The ‘Freedom of Navigation’ exercise included practicing attack capabilities at a training range. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes the capabilities of B1B and explains why China should be afraid of it? Lets get started. BACKGROUND: China has a long history of maritime disputes with its South China Sea neighbors. It claims almost all of the South China Sea, including islands more than 800 miles (~1300 km) from the Chinese mainland, despite objections from its neighbors. Beijing has also created artificial islands in the area, outfitting some of them with military features. According to the US, China has reclaimed more than 3,000 acres in the Spratly Islands since 2014. China’s sweeping claims of sovereignty over the sea have provoked competing claimants Malaysia, Vietnam, Brunei, Taiwan, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Non-claimants like USA, India, Australia & Japan want the South China Sea to remain as international waters with freedom of navigation, whereas China want to control this major trade way .It is a very important sea route with 5 trillion $ in trade, half of global merchant shipping and 1/2 of world’s oil shipment pass through it. The sea also has alleged 11 billion barrels of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. B1B CONCEPT The B-1 Lancer is a supersonic variable-sweep wing, heavy bomber used by the United States Air Force (USAF). It is commonly called the "Bone". It is one of three strategic bombers in the USAF fleet as of 2017, the other two being the B-2 Spirit "Stealth Bomber", and the B-52 Stratofortress. U.S has 100 of these. NEED The B-1A was originally designed during the 1970s as a high-altitude, Mach 2.0-capable nuclear bomber. However, President Jimmy Carter cancelled the program on June 30, 1977, in favor of air launched cruise missiles carried onboard the B-52, intercontinental ballistic missiles and what eventually became the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. This was done after it became apparent that penetrating Soviet airspace at high altitudes in a conventional non-stealthy aircraft was likely a suicidal endeavor. President Ronald Reagan eventually revived the Lancer program on Oct. 2, 1981, however the new B-1B was optimized for low-level penetration. Additionally, the aircraft was modified with new engine air intakes and other upgrades to reduce its radar cross-section. The resultant B-1B aircraft no longer possessed Mach 2 capability—topping out at roughly Mach 1.25—but had much better survivability because of stealthier profile. WING SWEEP SYSTEM Most airplane wing designs are tradeoffs. Wings are set for low speed stability or high-speed performance, or some middle point. But even with flap systems and leading edge slats, fixed wings are compromises. A multi-role aircraft needs more flexibility. Having variability in the wing configuration has huge advantages in making a single aircraft adept at multiple missions. RANGE / SERVCE CEILING /PAYLOAD B1B has an excellent range of Range: 5,900 mi or 9,400 km. It has a Service ceiling of 60,000 ft. B1B has a massive payload of 125,000 lb (56,700 kg) internal and external ordnance combined. It has 6 external hardpoints for 50,000 pounds (23,000 kg) of ordnance and 3 internal bomb bays for 75,000 pounds (34,000 kg) of ordnance. Depending on mission the ammunition can consists of following: 84× Mk-82 Air inflatable retarder (AIR) general purpose (GP) bombs 81× Mk-82 low drag general purpose (LDGP) bombs 84× Mk-62 Quickstrike sea mines 24× Mk-84 general-purpose bombs 24× Mk-65 naval mines 30× CBU-87/89/CBU-97 Cluster Bomb Units (CBU) 30× CBU-103/104/105 Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser (WCMD) 24× GBU-31 JDAM GPS guided bombs (Mk-84 GP or BLU-109 warhead) 15× GBU-38 JDAM GPS guided bombs (Mk-82 GP warhead) 48× GBU-38 JDAM (using rotary launcher mounted multiple ejector racks) 48× GBU-54 Laser JDAM (using rotary launcher mounted multiple ejector racks) 96× or 144× GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb GPS guided bombs 24× AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW) 24× AGM-158 Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) CONCLUSION Earlier James Mattis, on a two-day visit to Japan, affirmed that Senkakus islands in South China Sea, which are controlled by Japan but also claimed by China, fell within the scope of the Japan-US security treaty, under which Washington is obliged to defend all areas under Japanese administrative control. US has also signed an important agreement with India. The Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) between US & India allows them to use each other's land, air and naval bases for repair and resupply. US, Japan and Indian are participating in Malabar naval exercise with eye on China. It is clear from the developments that China is increasing getting isolated due to its aggressive posturing.

Did real disasters inspire the story of Earth's 40-day submersion, the ultimate "do-over?" Recent core sample discoveries point to a series of events that could have lead to climactic conditions that washed out entire land masses, even destroying complete civilizations. MEGA DISASTERS examines one such cataclysm in great detail: 8000 years ago the Mediterranean Sea, pushed by rising sea levels worldwide, exploded through the Bosporus Strait with devastating results. This ancient inundation may have been the greatest natural disaster in the history of humankind. MEGA DISASTERS reconstructs this massive flood, which claimed an area twice the size of Ireland, and utilizes vivid 3D animation to plunge viewers deep into the experience of this epic catastrophe.

Reef Madness: The insignificant island chain pushing the south china sea to the brink of war Subscribe to Journeyman: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=JourneymanPictures For more on this escalating situation visit: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlGSlkijht5gc6AwNdNCKra10gSLaxae6 For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/?lid=67224 The Spratly Islands are an unremarkable scattering of reefs and sandbars in the South China Sea. But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict? "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

Check out these MYTHICAL And LEGENDARY Creatures From Alaska! From strange creature sightings to mysterious mythological animals, this top 10 list of weird creatures from alaska is amazing! 9. Kushtaka The Kushtaka are shape-shifting creatures that have gone by many names by different people in the Northwest section of North America, including being legends in two different Alaskan Tribes, the Dena'ina, and Yup'ik. But regardless of the name, the legends of the creature are mostly the same. 8. Saberwolf In Alaska, an American Mechanic was doing some work when he claimed to have seen a "wolf on steroids." This is one of a few "confirmed" sightings of a Saberwolf, also known as Waheela. The Waheela is said to be a wolf of massive size, and even stronger build than most wolves. It's also said to have a much wider head, so this thing is pretty scary! 7. Tizheruk The Tizheruk are sea serpent-like creatures that are said to roam in the waters of Alaska. Their heads alone are "documented" to be around 7 feet in length, and yet unlike a serpent, their tail end is actually a flipper. All told, the beast is said to be at least 15 feet in length. 6. Tornit In the ancient days of Alaska, there were actually two groups of people who inhabited the lands after crossing the Bering Land Bridge. One was the Inuit people, who still live there today, but then, there were the Tornit, or the "Alaska Bushmen". At first, the Inuit and the Tornit were said to have lived in peace, and actually respected one another. 5. Thunderbird Interestingly enough, the Thunderbird legend is one that is rather spread out in North America, including being told by not only Alaskans, but Native Americans in the central part of the United States. 4. Qalupalik The Inuit people also tell stories about a monster called the Qalupalik. This is a sea creature that is actually very humanoid in its initial appearance, but looks more and more like a creature from the depths as you get closer to it. The skin of the Qalupalik is green, and when you look at the hands of the creature, they look more like claws than anything else. 3. Ji-Gi-Nak In Lake Iliamna, there is said to be a fish that is so massive and strong that it can hunt entire packs of animals in the water by itself. Multiple Alaskan tribes have claimed to not only have seen this monster, but also be terrorized by it over the centuries. It's become a part of their folklore, and many have claimed to have seen it in the modern age as well. 2. Adlet The Adlet are what you might call the Alaskan version of a werewolf, but with a few differences. The Inuit people describe the Adlet as a being that has the lower half of a dog, but the upper half of a human (which is different than a werewolf which is often described as a human sized and figured wolf). What's more, the legends say that these creatures were born via an unholy union between a woman and a dog. 1. Bigfoot Bigfoot as we "know him" may not be a solely Alaskan legend, but for those who study the creature, they admit that if there are two places in North America that he/she/it could hide without much issue or worry, it's either Canada, or Alaska. And there have been many people who have reportedly "seen" Bigfoot within the state.

SOUTH CHINA SEA — A U.S. Navy warship sailed through the South China Sea this week, prompting yet another angry response from China, which claims almost the entire region as its own. Disputed islands in the South China Sea are claimed by at least six countries: the Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, and China. According to a report compiled for the U.S. Congress, China has undertaken large-scale land reclamation in the area since 2013, creating seven artificial islands in two years. The Wall Street Journal reports that on Tuesday, missile destroyer USS William P. Lawrence traveled within 12 nautical miles of Chinese-occupied Fiery Cross Reef. Fiery Cross is a 700-acre man-made island with a 10,000-foot military runway, deepwater port, and other military facilities. Given its extensive infrastructure, it is presumed to be the future hub of Chinese military operations in the South China Sea. The U.S. has said the operation was conducted to exercise freedom of navigation rights in the area, which are reportedly being restricted by excessive claims in the region. Fiery Cross Reef is claimed by China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines. Except for the Philippines, the rest of the claimants all require prior notice for transit rights within the 12-mile zone, according to the New York Times. China responded to the U.S. destroyer’s passage by mobilizing two fighter jets and three warships to shadow the vessel, reports Reuters. The demonstration comes ahead of a United Nations ruling on whether Beijing has maritime rights around reefs and atolls in the South China Sea. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

The Sea Has Claimed Two More Lives/JBN Police say sharks hindered the recovery yesterday of the body of a 26-year-old Northern Caribbean University (NCU) student — one of two beachgoers who drowned at Frenchman's Bay in Treasure Beach, on New Year's Eve. The second body, that of 26-year-old Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) soldier and also a student of NCU Joseph Anderson, was recovered in mid-morning by fishermen. Anderson was a Computer Information Science Student. However, the body of the other NCU student, identified by police as Kevon Gayle and by schoolmates as Karanjah Gayle, remained underwater, 30 metres offshore. Divers were unable to enter the water to retrieve the body because of sharks, police say. Gayle was enrolled in the Department of Communication Studies. A police spokesman said late yesterday that in addition to shark infestation, recovery was made difficult by “very choppy seas”. It's expected that the JDF Coastguard and the Marine Police will continue efforts to retrieve the remains today. Police say the two friends drowned at about 3:20 pm Monday after they went swimming off the beach at Frenchman's Bay. They experienced difficulties and were swept away by strong tides which are prevalent off Jamaica's south coast. Residents of Treasure Beach complained yesterday that visitors such as Gayle and Anderson often go swimming in “no swim” areas, without consulting with locals. In the latest case, they say the two men went swimming despite signs warning people to stay out of the water. Drownings are a common occurrence during holiday time at popular south coast spots such as Treasure Beach and Alligator Pond. In the meanwhile, NCU President Dr. Lincoln Edwards said he was “deeply saddened” by the news and has expressed condolences to the bereaved families. He said the university has offered prayers of comfort.

7 BIGGEST Underwater Mysteries From an underwater stonehenge to a picture of a mastadon on a rock to magnetic anomolies in a strange lake, these are the 7 biggest underwater mysteries will still don't understand. Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com Ivan Terence Sanderson was a Scottish biologist who first coined the term "Vile Vortex" to describe areas of unusual phenomena found around the world. He claimed there were twelve such areas, and barring the few on land in Asia, Africa and Antarctica; most of these areas can be found out at sea, with the most famous being - the Bermuda Triangle. Right now the only people playing "hide the sub" should be Jared from Subway's cellmates, but in 1968 someone or something caused not one, not two, but four submarines to randomly disappear around the world. Stonehenge is one of the most famous historical monuments in the world, but it is far from the only random arrangement of old-timey stones humanity has uncovered. We've seen similar sites across Europe, Asia, Africa and America, but none of these were ever discovered underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration constantly monitor the ocean for unique sounds emanating from the ocean. They pick up all sorts of strange and weird noises every day, yet whilst most can be explained, the origin of some has never been determined. With a name like that you know this thing isn't gonna be small. Leptocephalus Giganteus is an eel species of which only two have ever been observed, and on both occasions they were undeveloped larvae. The first sighting was in 1930 off the coast of South Africa, when Danish scientist Anton Brunn captured a 6ft specimen. He recognised it as the larvae of a Leptocephalus, who are typically around one thirtieth of the adult's size, which means if fully matured it could have grown to over 180ft. There are countless examples of marine biologists estimating the size of an ocean dwelling creature only to encounter one far larger than anyone thought possible. One such event occurred in Japan's Suruga Bay, where Japanese scientists detected a huge 30ft shark, leading some to wonder whether the prehistoric Megalodon, which measured up to 59 feet, could still be lurking somewhere at the bottom of the ocean today. Southern Siberia's Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake in the world, and not only is it incredibly ancient, clocking in at 25-30 million years old, but the lake and surrounding area also contains a rich biodiversity of over 1000 plant species and 2500 animal species, of which 80% exist nowhere else in the world.

When the commies in China started an accelerated program to build and modernize their navy, many became concern. The commies attempted to alleviate those fears by claiming the navy buildup was to protect their shipping routes. On the surface that is a legitimate claim, however with commies it had to have a sinister goal and it did. Portions of the South China Sea are claimed by Malaysia, Brunei, Vietnam, and the Philippines. These territorial claims into these waters were basically unchallenged and recognized by the United Nations, UNCLOS 200 mile Exclusive Economic Zone -- EEZ. When natural resources were discovered in these waters and in waters off many of the minute islands that dot the waters, the commies in China all of a sudden lay claim to these waters. Their territorial claims intrude upon the EEZ of the fore mentioned nations. The commie excuse is they have ancient Chinese maps illustrating those waters belong to The Middle Kingdom (current day commie-led China). Following China's territorial claims based on old maps other nations might want to do the same. France can reclaim the lands conquered by Napoleon. Italy can get back all the lands surrounded the Mediterranean Sea once the Roman Empire. To help Greece with their economic concerns give them back the lands once conquered by Alexander the Great. In the USA Texas can expand their borders to their original state when Texas was an independent nation. The commies in China sent 30 fishing vessels with a security vessel into Philippine waters (Spratly Islands) a bold challenge to Philippine territorial integrity. The government of the Philippines thinks hold talks with the commies will solve the dispute. Never happen, the commies do not respond to talk, only to force. Example: In the Sea of Japan a commie Chinese vessel violated Russian waters. The Russian military vessel fired a warning shot and the commies sailed away with the Russians giving chase. After a three hour chase the Russians captured the commie vessel and brought it to a Russian port of Nakhodka. That is the only way to address commie aggression with force, not with talking.

The United Kingdom will deploy its new aircraft carrier, loaded with two squadrons of F-35 aircraft into the politically-fraught South China Sea. British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson confirmed in a speech Monday morning that the Royal Navy's HMS Queen Elizabeth will sail into waters that are the subject of dispute between China and other nations. At an address given to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, Williamson said Britain was the second largest investor in the region and it must display "hard power" and "lethality" to help protect interests. The £3 billion ($3.9 billion) carrier's outing will also sail into the Middle East and Mediterranean and will be officially a mixed U.K./U.S. deployment. "Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier's air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces (and) reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners," Williamson said. The U.K. defense minister did not confirm exact dates for the mission. China has laid claim to almost all of the strategic South China Sea which is viewed as important for shipping lanes and potential resources. On Sunday, United States destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed close to the Spratly Islands, territory disputed by China and the Philippines. China claimed Monday that the ships entered without official permission but a spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet told CNN that the operation was to "challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law." China is in the process of developing its own aircraft carrier capability, with currently only one considered combat-ready. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) the country could have as many as 6 carriers by the 2030s. Thank you for watching.

Cracking a Code of Conduct for the South China Sea | Hot News SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z URL video: https://youtu.be/XeZ3D6h0dcc G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cracking a Code of Conduct for the South China Sea - South China Sea News - Check out the latest News on South China Sea A discerning account of simmering conflict in the South China Sea and why the world can't afford to be indifferent 3 days ago - (CNN)When it comes to the disputed waters of the South China Sea, Vietnam's leaders must feel very lonely these days The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) Arbitral Tribunal’s decision in July 2016 was intended to set up a legal perimeter for dispute resolution in the region. However, China’s policy of non-acknowledgement of the Tribunal’s jurisdiction, non-participation in its proceedings, and non-acceptance of its decision and prescription have made judicial resolution of the SCS dispute an impossible mission. Diplomatic squabbling and strategic friction continue. The legal defeat gave China a soft punch but failed to have any substantial impact on China’s land reclamation efforts. Indeed, despite the legal victory, the Philippines under President Rodrigo Duterte has since shifted course to work with China rather than insisting on the enforcement of the Tribunal’s decision. Since the decision, the US, Japan, and allies have persistently expressed their displeasure through diplomacy and conducted Freedom of Navigation Operations (FONOPs) to protest China’s maritime claims in the SCS. Despite this, China’s assertiveness on the SCS remains unchanged and its land reclamation sites are now a part of the region’s seascape. The same applies to Vietnam’s territorial claim and land reclamation efforts. Against this backdrop, there are several key issues around a future code of conduct for the SCS. First, one should not hold high expectations that the recent framework agreement between China and ASEAN nations will lead to a legally binding CoC. While the framework agreement is an important first step to set the tone for future negotiations, reaching a legally binding CoC will be a challenging task. It is highly doubtful that key claim contenders, particularly China, Vietnam, and the Philippines, would agree on anything which severely curtails their existing territorial assertions and privileges. Second, although a CoC would be unable to resolve territorial disputes between contenders, the ASEAN-China framework agreement still represents a positive confidence-building step to prevent the dispute from escalating further. At a minimum, even without concrete command and control provisions in the follow-up document, the framework offers all concerned parties a starting point for continuous dialogue and shows a collective willingness to manage the dispute. Indeed, one objective a future CoC could at least hope to achieve is to maintain the status quo. At best, a future CoC could set up mutually agreeable procedures for notification, consultation, and negotiation in maritime accident and crisis management as well as a workable regional mechanism to mitigate bilateral flare-ups. Even so, while the idea of non-militarisation often touted by policymakers and in the media might be admirable, it is unrealistic: most island occupants have already achieved a fait accompli by fortifying their force structure to ensure full control of their claimed territory. Third, China’s position appears straightforward. In light of years of rising nationalist sentiment, China is unlikely to undercut its position on territorial integrity. For China’s domestic audience, territorial possession, including in the South China Sea, is a material display of the country’s national pride, collective identity, and power status. Rare is the state that would voluntarily relinquish something it values. In China’s case, the government would additionally have to contemplate the significant impact of public anger on its legitimacy of governance and regime stability. Simply put, China will not compromise easily in the SCS, and the same level of reluctance also applies to Vietnam and the Philippines. However, while our expectations must be guided by a realistic assessment of China’s interests, this is not always a cause for pessimism. China’s global ‘One Belt, One Road’ economic strategy, for instance, requires the collaboration of Southeast Asian countries, and also calls for strategic prudence in keeping the SCS status quo. This means that while China will not modify its SCS territorial claims, it will also not allow the territorial claims of other claimants to change the status quo or threaten the safety of ships (at least non-military vessels) passing through the area.

These experienced divers & beginners were stranded at sea or just fell to extreme depths to the ocean floor. Let's take a look at what happens when scuba diving goes wrong. Support our Patreon today: https://www.patreon.com/theywillkillyou Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] Number 7 Japanese Divers In 2014, a group of seven female Japanese scuba divers set off from the coast of Bali in serene weather conditions. The group was led by Bali-based instructors Saori Furukawa and Shoko Takahashi. As they were exploring the area, a storm struck. Heavy rainfall and strong winds separated the group from their boat and trapped them in a whirlpool together. Takahashi became lost at sea. Furukawa and the remaining four were left drifting on the open water. They got through the first night in the ocean by drinking from passing coconuts and trying to keep each other awake. At one point, Furukawa swam away from the group and tried to intercept a tugboat but didn’t manage to get close enough. The current was too strong and she got separated from the others. They were found on a large coral reef off a small island called Nusa Penida, almost 19 miles from where they had started their dive. Number 6 Jacob’s Well Located northwest of Wimberley, Texas, Jacob’s Well is one of the most popular diving spots in the US. The mouth of the spring is a popular swimming spot. However, for those interested in scuba diving, it’s the entrance point to a complex underwater cave system. Even the slightest brush of the flipper is enough to stir it up and obscure the diver’s vision. Navigating it requires specialized technique and equipment. Swimming through the chambers sometimes involves maneuvering through narrow passageways. Richard Patton was looking for a way to move from chamber to chamber when he became stuck in a false chimney that looked like a way out. Number 5 Thomas Pritchard In 2015, Tom Prichard had almost a thousand dives under his belt when he became part of a team that dove to the wreckage of Andrea Doria. The wreck has been slowly collapsing for a number of years, with its top resting at 190 feet. Pritchard was tasked with attaching a mooring line to the wreck. When his team surfaced they noticed that Pritchard was no longer with them. The captain of the ship that had brought the team to the site didn’t let the divers go back after him. Number 4 Bushman’s Hole In October 2004, at Bushman’s Hole in South Africa, friends Dave Shaw and Don Shirley broke four deep diving world records, after reaching the cave’s floor, almost 1,000 feet beneath the surface. More people have walked the surface of the moon than have dove to such depths. Special technique and highly complex equipment must be used. After several months of preparation, in a high media event and accompanied by a documentary film crew, Shaw and Shirley made their attempt to dive down. He knew something had gone wrong but experienced a problem with his own equipment and knew he had to return to the surface. His ascent took more than 12 hours, which he spent in a fog of nausea and exhaustion. Number 3 Poliakov Oleg 40-year-old Poliakov Oleg and an unnamed companion were swimming in a proper diving zone. The driver, identified as 47-year-old Ritthirong Phanla told the authorties that he was a carrying a group of ten tourists at the time and was unable to stop the boat when the two divers suddenly surfaced. Number 2 Yuri Lipski A blue hole is a large marine sinkhole that’s open to the surface. It’s typically created in an island or a bank composed of limestone or bedrock. A blue hole located on the east coast of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, is one of the most coveted diving spots in the world. The coral-lined sinkhole has a depth of about 394 feet. Number 1 Tina Watson In October 2003, 26-year-old Tina Watson, from Helena, Alabama went scuba diving in Queensland, Australia. The woman was on her honeymoon with her new husband, Gabe Watson, a diver who was also her diving buddy. On October 22, the couple was scuba diving at the site of the historical shipwreck Yongala. One of the divers nearby later claimed that he saw Gabe engage in an underwater bear hug with Tina as she was struggling. Afterwards, Gabe reportedly headed to the surface as she fell to the bottom. Another diver took a picture of his wife and, by chance, caught Tina in the background as she laid face-up on the ocean floor.

China Ended Real Combat Military Drill In The South China Sea China wrapped up a week–long training drills in the South China Sea. A flotilla of warships, including destroyer equipped with guided missiles had been conducting drills in the disputed water. The drill, as claimed by the Xinhua News Agency, is as close as possible to real combat involving sudden attack and performed in poor sea conditions. The drill occurred days after China warned the United States against challenging its sovereignty following a report from Navy Time earlier of more provocative Freedom of Navigation, involving ships from carrier strike group USS Carl Vinson. During his first foreign trip to Asia, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Freedom of Navigation is an absolute and that all nations should play by the international rules. But he falls short on increasing military present in the South China Sea. The Freedom of Navigation operations consist of simply sailing ships within 12 miles of land features in the South China Sea that China claims. The operations, as their name implies, completely observe all international law and exist mainly to assert the right of the US, or any nation, to sail in international waters.

World War II claimed millions of lives. It destroyed Japan and the effects of the nuclear attack on that country were such that children born there are still prone to be born with deformities or diseases. All forms of landscapes were used to bring all kinds of weapons into use. The war happened on land, sea, and air. Hundreds of ships sank in the Pearl Harbor and many planes crashed on the land. But what this scuba diver discovered underwater revealed something about the World War II that was not supposed to be known by mankind, ever. Your view of the history will not be the same when you see what she discovered.

A Dutch commercial showing the relation of the Netherlands with water. Water is what made The Netherlands great. In time we have claimed huge area's of land from the sea. The sea also allows us to set up trade routes.. But living below the sealevel comes at a price: the ever present risk of a flood. The images shown in this video show great floods from recent history, as well as the structures we have built to defend ourself.

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com The strategic waters of the South China Sea are claimed by a confusing collection of various nations. The region’s strongest – and most vocal – stakeholder is China. On Thursday, the US Navy admitted that it is monitoring the area, launching its most advanced spy plane out of the Philippines. The P-8A Poseidon is one the United States’ most advanced surveillance planes. It’s capable of both anti-submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare, and is currently flying over the South China Sea. The US plans to use the aircraft to share “real time” details about activity in Philippine waters. http://sputniknews.com/us/20150226/1018809535.html#ixzz3SynS5QC1

From gold coins to sunken treasure to ancient tombs, these are the 13 biggest treasures ever discovered. Back in 2014, a middle aged couple in Northern California accidentally stumbled across 1400 gold coins while walking their dog. The old coins were likely stolen from a coin minting factory back in the Gold Rush era of California and hidden underground for a couple hundred years. The individual coins were auctioned off and ended up raising 11 million dollars. The couple has chosen to stay anonymous and refused to disclose where they found the gold to prevent a false gold rush in their area. Most of their 11 million dollar profit was donated to charity. The British are constantly sweeping their own land with metal detectors, in hopes of finding ancient treasures and trinkets lost to history. In 2001 one such hobby treasure hunter, a retired electrician, was sweeping a grassy field with his metal detector, hoping to find something valuable in the dirt. He unwittingly uncovered a bona fide treasure - a 3.5 oz cup carved from 20 karat gold. The 3500 year old cup was made around the same time Stonehenge was built and was valued at £270,00 british pounds or roughly $390,000 USD. The Silverdale Hoard is the name given to one of the largest caches of Viking Silver ever found. This massive find was uncovered in North Yorkshire a few years ago in 2011 and is comprised of 1000 year old silver heirlooms, including 90 silver viking coins with the name of an unknown Viking king minted onto it. This mysterious hoard is still being analyzed to this day with hopes of uncovering more details of Viking history and culture. The continued study of the treasure makes the monetary value unclear, but the Silverdale Hoard is estimated to be worth at least 100,00 British pounds or about 145,000 US dollars. A sunken ship full of nearly 600,000 gold and silver coins was found at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean by a private treasure hunting company called Odyssey Marine. A priceless hoard of gold coins and hand crafted gold chains were found inside of the ship, which was called the Frigate Mercedes, and became the center of a controversy when Spain claimed ownership over the gold. A legal battle between Spain and Odyssey Marine ensued and lasted half a decade before the Spanish government prevailed. In 2015, Spain finally flew their 17 tons of priceless coins across the Atlantic. This massive load of treasure was found in 2009 when a farmer in Central England lost a tool in his field and called a friend with a metal detector to scan for it. In search of a farm tool, Terry accidentally uncovered the largest single hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. As excavators dug up the field they found a total of 3500 pieces of gold, silver, and garnet that would total to 3.285 million british pounds or 4.75 million US dollars, split in half by the man who owned the land and the man who found it. Amateur divers were exploring an old sunken dock off of the coast of Israel when they discovered 2,000 gold coins hidden in the sea bed. The centuries old currency was miraculously unmarred by age or water damage at the bottom of the ocean. There is no current estimated monetary value of the 20 pounds worth of coins, but they are considered extremely rare and valuable to historians. Even at the time of their minting in 900 AD they were considered a royal sum of cash. One of the most exciting and largest treasures on this list has come close to being discovered but hasn’t actually been found yet. In 2010 the successful art dealer, hobby treasure hunter, and eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn had the idea of hiding a huge fortune in a treasure chest and burying it somewhere for someone else to find. Fenn hopes to share the fun and thrill of treasure hunting which he has enjoyed throughout his life with others. If you were to discover Fenn’s Treasure with the set of 9 clues he has put out, you would be looking at a sweet 1 to 3 million US dollar cash out of gold nuggets and precious stones.
