Blood Falls

Continuing with the series of strange natural phenomena that occurs around the world today we will see an outstanding one that is located in the Antarctica.

Blood Falls

Blood Falls is the name for the waterfalls located in Glacier Taylor (Antarctica).
The reason for the name of this scene is very simple. The water that falls from the waterfalls has an unusual blood colour that make this waterfalls very strange.

At first, when the waterfalls were discovered, scientifics though that the only possible reason for the red colour of the water was the presence of algae in it.

However, some years later scientifics found out that the causer of this colour in the water were some microscopic organisms that live in this place.

These organisms have remained under the glacier ice for more than one million years. These beings have the capacity of metabolizing sulfur and iron, so the water is red due to the presence of iron that oxidates when it is in contact with oxygen.

Here are some pics of this awesome landscape:

Place where the waterfalls are located.

School refurbishing. Students at work


The teacher Mr. Pedro Sánchez is carrying out some refurbishing works at school.  With the help of his pupils he hung a couple of marvellous murals based on some masterpieces of the world famous Russian painter V. Kandinsky before Christmas time.
Now, he is trying a new challenge.  The walls in the corridor before the Dpt. of English are also being refurbished.  Some students, under the direction of Mr. Sánchez, will transform the former ugliness of the old brown tiles into bright colourful walls within few weeks.  We'll keep on informing.

And in the sensor comparison the the Xbox Kinect is better because it is packed with Xbox and you do not have to buy it like the PS Eye in PS4

Battlefield 4


The first number will be about the new videogame Battlefield 4.

Let’s start with Battlefield 4, It’s the successor of Battlefield 3 which was released in 2011. The Game is available for Xbox One, PC, PS4, PS3 and Xbox360.

Let´s begin the analysis: 

Gameplay: Battlefield 4 features suffered several changes compared to its predecessor. The game's heads-up display is much the same, composed of two compact rectangles. The lower left-hand corner features a mini-map and compass for navigation, and a simplified objective notice above it; the lower right includes a compact ammo counter and health meter. The mini-map, as well as the main game screen, shows symbols marking three kinds of entities: blue for allies, green for squad mates, and red/orange for enemies. 

Multiplayer: Battlefield's multiplayer contains 3 playable factions; U.S., China and Russia and up to 64 players on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A newly reintroduced "Commander Mode", last seen in Battlefield 2142, gives one player an RTS-like view of the entire map and the ability to give orders to teammates. Also, the Commander can observe the battle through the eyes of the players on the battlefield, deploying vehicle and weapon drops to "keep the war machine going", and order in missile strikes and such on hostile targets (as long as at least one friendly player can see the target). A spectator mode is included, enabling players to spectate others in first or third person, as well as use a free camera to pan around the map from any angle.

Engine: Battlefield 4 is built on the new Frostbite 3 engine. The new Frostbite engine enables more realistic environments with higher resolution textures and particle effects. A new networked water system is also being introduced, allowing all players in the game to see the same wave at the same time. Tessellation has also been overhauled. An Alpha Trial commenced on June 17, 2013 with invitations randomly emailed to Battlefield 3 players the day prior. The trial ran for two weeks and featured the Siege of Shanghai map with all of its textures removed, essentially making it a whitebox test.

Death Valley's sailing stones

Today it's time for another curious phenomena that occurs in the USA.

Death Valley's sailing stones

Death Valley is a desert valley located in California (USA). It is situated within the Mojave Desert and this is one of the hottest places of the world.

Death Valley is a flat desert where there are stones. Inexplicably the stones move hundreds of meters across the desert with different trajectories. The stones weigh sometines more than ten kilos. How are these stones able to move so many meters?

Some people think that the wind is the causer of this, but scientifics have made researchs finding that the wind is completly unable to move the stones so many meters.

A recent theory is that a layer of ice is created under the stone and this layer make the stone move very easily with a simple breeze. Will this be true? 

Here are some photos of the sailing stones.
