Its bite is in fact very dangerous, the authorities warn, even capable of detaching fingers.Now, it is thought that this animal is breeding on the outskirts of Rome, creating havoc among the authorities involved in managing the matter. The snapping turtle can indeed be very unpredictable and dangerous, especially if it comes into contact with children who have no idea how to approach it.

Time to rethink Manila — Dr. Ivan Henares, UNESCO PHL SecGen | The Howie Severino Podcast

The burning of the iconic Manila Post Office building is a chance to imagine it restored as a public arts hub, and not as a commercial establishment, according to heritage advocate Ivan Henares who now heads UNESCO’s National Commission of the Philippines. In addressing rumors of arson, Henares said the government would never allow the now-gutted Manila Post Office to be demolished. Instead, it could have a future as the heart of a revitalized Manila civic center. That would require the removal of unsightly flyovers, a shift to pedestrian-friendly streets, and the conversion of the Intramuros golf course into a public park. Henares urges listeners to look no further than Iloilo City as an example of effective urban transformation with its riverside esplanade and bike accessibility.

The C919, China's first domestically produced passenger aircraft, made its maiden flight today, taking off from Shanghai Airport and heading for the capital Beijing. The 164-seat aircraft was built to break the dominance of single-aisle jets from Airbus and Boeing, but still relies on Western components, including engines and avionics.

Maya, a 3,000-year-old "highway" discovered in the middle of the forest

A literally unbelievable discovery comes from South America, and specifically from the territories that once belonged to the Mayas, one of the three great pre-Columbian civilisations along with the Incas (Peru) and Aztecs (Mexico). In the territory between present-day Guatemala and Mexico, in fact, a huge network of highways has been discovered.The complex of roads and bridges dates back as far as 3000 years, and the team of scientists who made the discovery compared it in importance to the discovery of the Egyptian pyramids. It is estimated that the 'highway' continues for hundreds of kilometres and intersects some 417 ancient Maya settlements.For this discovery, a new technology called lidar was used, an advanced type of radar that reveals presences hidden by dense vegetation, resulting in 3D reconstructive images.
