Email Digital Story Innovation Team By Mark Doman Updated March 05, 2021 09:30:45 Map: Antarctica Since the early 70s, satellites have surveyed the ebb and flow of vast ice masses at the edge of Antarctica. The data being collected from space has allowed scientists to monitor huge areas of the icy continent, even through the darkness and hostility of an Antarctic winter. One of the more spectacular sights captured by the satellites is the calving of city-sized icebergs from ice shelves — the giant glaciers transporting ice from the middle of the continent out to sea. Just last week, a huge 1,200-square-kilometre iceberg broke away from the Brunt Ice Shelf near the Weddell Sea. It's the first large iceberg to break off from this shelf in 50 years. "A lot of these big ice shelves, we'll normally get, like, one iceberg produced from the shelf during our careers," said Dr Sue Cook, a glaciologist with the Australian Antarctic Program Partnership. "So ... » Learn More about Satellites capture formation of enormous iceberg A74 on Antarctica’s Brunt Ice Shelf
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will contest from Nandigram seat in 2021 State Assembly polls.

A growing number of youngsters aspire to be social media influencers for fame and fortune. But experts warn about a narcissitic trend that can be devastating for youths. Wang Yuke reports from Hong Kong. If Hong Kong's big-time fortune tellers can strike gold by amassing a huge following over time, there's a group of young go-getters trying to take a leaf out of their book — social media influencers. But the luck and instinct that may guarantee one's success in any field of endeavor simply don't fall from the sky. It could be a make-it-or-break-it move. Kenson, 10, is nothing short of a toy influencer in Hong Kong despite his tender age. "I often come across strangers recognizing me on the street. They would leap at me, excitedly shout out my name and ask for selfies," says Kenson shyly. "I was happy about it but it, somehow, set me on edge." While many young YouTubers wallow in stardom and the glee of being lionized, being a household name is not on Kenson's priority list. ... » Learn More about Wallowing in stardom or a minefield?
Video Player Close QENA, Egypt, March 5 (Xinhua) -- "Harvest of sugarcane is the season of paying the debts and meeting our needs," said Abdel Rahman Eryan, a 23-year-old farm worker. Heading to one of the harvesting lands in Upper Egypt's province of Qena where most of the country's sugarcane crops are cultivated, Eryan said most of the young people in his village are eager for this occasion because it is their main source of earnings from January to May. He routinely works for eight hours from early morning and makes 100 Egyptian pounds (6.4 U.S. dollars) on a daily basis. "Harvest of sugarcane requires full attention because the tools are very sharp," Eryan explained. Every two hectares need 10 workers to cut the crop for five days, while others collect and transfer the reaped crops to the factories, he told Xinhua. Farouq Shaker, a sugarcane farmer in northern Qena, said cutting, piling and transferring the crops is a kind of festival for the whole family, ... » Learn More about Feature: Upper Egyptian farm workers eager for sugarcane harvest for better lives
Video Player Close TAIYUAN, March 5 (Xinhua) -- Residents in the Liangcai Village, located in the city of Changzhi, north China's Shanxi Province, used to offer prayers for rain in the local Temple of King Dayu, a mythological figure who is believed to have tamed floods in ancient China. In recent years, however, the temple has been plagued by an existential threat from decades of decaying due to rainwater leakage. "The temple has been leaking for more than 20 years," Wang Hongrui, a Party official in the village, said of the only immovable cultural relic in the village. But, thanks to the efforts of a volunteer team, Wang has managed to raise more than 3,000 yuan (463 U.S. dollars) worth of funds to help protect the temple. The team came to the public fore on Friday, as China observed "Lei Feng Day" by showing goodwill and helping others in remembrance of the soldier renowned for his generosity and altruistic deeds.
