A wooden schooner and its crew haven’t been heard from since early June, a week after setting out from New Zealand in late May. Friends and family of the seven crew members grew worried after the ship went incommunicado.
Nina, an American racing sailboat, was built in 1928 and is equipped with an emergency beacon, satellite phone, and tracking technology, but none of these devices have been heard from and the vessel has not arrived in Newcastle, Australia, its intended destination.
Aerial searches were undertaken after maritime authorities were alerted to the situation, but thus far have found no trace of the missing ship.

Haleakala, “The House of the Sun”
On a recent trip to Maui, I had the opportunity to visit the world’s largest dormant volcano – Haleakala. The size of this volcano is massive – Manhattan could fit inside. I’m still in shock at how awesome this place is. Arriving before sunrise, I placed a few cameras out in hopes to capture what people refer to as, “The most beautiful sunrise in the world.”
People gather from around the globe to witness this kaleidoscope of shifting colors – known as the “House of the Sun”. My hope is to give you a small glimpse of the energy, excitement and elegance this natural marvel brings.

I wonder if you can get a group discount on tuition to charm school because it seems as though everyone involved in this incident was absent the day they were handing out tact and courtesy.
On a June 20th WestJet flight from Toronto to Edmonton Lexi Sanfino paraded topless down the aisle after she didn’t take kindly to flight attendants asking for beauty tips and pointing out that she used to be a guy. Sanfino and her travel companion Nina Arsenault were arrested upon arrival in Edmonton. According to the pair, while they were detained, the police seemed to enjoy giving them a hard time about their transgendered status, asking deeply personal questions unrelated to their arrest and frequently threatening to put them in the male section of the jail because their identification listed them as Male. Arsenault then argued that if the police wanted to treat them as male then they might as well release them, since it’s not illegal for men to go shirtless.
Overall, not a shining moment in either air travel or law enforcement. Let’s hope there’s a lesson in there somewhere.

The discovery site stretches over 54 acres and was first spotted by the team in a series of aerial photographs. The team spent three weeks cutting through the jungle and examining the site firsthand.
