Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an une...
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 his...

Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategy at Saxo Bank, explains why gold received a boost after Friday’s surprisingly weak US jobs report. He says that the data triggered a scramble to reinstate long positions in gold that helped the precious metal settle above the key technical level at $1240/oz. Continued strong demand for gold during May through exchange-traded products was not enough to offset a one-third reduction from hedge funds. http://video.saxobank.com/video/13786330/why-gold-spiked-after-nfp-shocker-hansen

https://goo.gl/xU4s1Q The diamond hunter sets sail: World's largest gem finding vessel - costing £122 million - begins trawling 140 metres below sea level for precious stones . Diamond hunters will be searching for valuable gems at 140 metres below sea level in this state-of-the-art £122 million trawler. With Namibia's land supply of diamonds expected to run out within 15 years, company De Beers and the Namibian Government are moving more and more into offshore exploration. They have now inaugurated the mv SS Nujoma - a 12,000 tonne, 113 metre long vessel described as the world's largest and most advanced diamond exploration and sampling vessel. It uses unique technology to scan the seafloor for potential diamond hotbeds before using a crawler to dredge the area. The crawler can lift 6...
Non-Lead TechnologiesToday both national and foreign radio electronic industries face the problem of managing and disposing of wastes which contain heavy metals and flame retardants. One of pre-requisites for a successful solution requires shifting to non-lead electronic engineering technologies and using non-lead materials.Leading manufacturers seek to be first to achieve a dominant position at the non-lead component, material and equipment market. But what hazards and effects does the promotion of non-lead technologies imply for both national and foreign electronic engineering? Why is it so much panic and frenzy about such wanted, even harmless mineral like lead? Is it really hazardous?Lead is a soft, tensile wide-spread metal. Ancient people knew lead a long time before the Christian er...

Over-priced but under-sold
You'll soon be worth your weigh in precious metal
Roll the crimson carpet out
The jack of clubs has come and will not leave
Fate loved me but now does not
I heard it from a rare clairvoyant petal
First you thrash me then you run
You broke the heart I fastened to my sleeve
Oh you're killing me now
You're over the moon and I'm under the ground
Oh it's killing you too
That they fought over me
But poured scorn over you
Oh it's payment in kind
That you're half what I love and half what I despise
Oh you're killing me now, you're killing me
Out of time but into greed
Your pots will slowly turn to copper kettles
Sneak a breath then spit it out
Enjoy the pound of freshly scented truce
One obsession at a time;
Your grip is getting loose around the nettles
Time to flee, and fly you will
A felon with a melancholy muse
