Photo of the day, New GPS Launch, Rescue Efforts Ramp Up, Monster Hunt Box Office Records….
Take a moment to appreciate the majestic power of this photo of the day, as it explains so much about humanity, and the basic instincts of civilization and technology, as a man casts his dip net to catch his next meal. The quest for fish has been one of man’s great challenges, and the age-old “dip net” — with a series of weights that ring the outer edges of a net that has a runner-line around the edges allows for the net to fall around a perimeter with the intent to close around the school of fish when the fisherman pulls the drawsting to tighten around the ball of fish. It is a great idea, and requires some skill to get your net to fall around the fish and timing to pull the string so that the fish do not flee, as well as grace to prevent the fish from being scared of your looks, movements, etc. However, this fisherman stays above the water to prevent scaring the fish, and puts the sun ahead of him so that his shadow doesn’t scare the fish, and uses the wooden casting stand as a means to increase his casting area.
NEW LAUNCH INTO SPACE
Chinese space engineers have proved their capability to put some satellites into orbit. The recent launch illustrates the initial blast-off of the Chinese BDS Rocket from Sichuan. The rockets contained a range of communications technology, including a couple satellites that will be used to determine GPS technology, and other information that has been developed by the Chinese. What a majestic sight! Can we see more pictures of the flight? Is there any video?

UNSTABLE TERRAIN CAVES FROM GROUNDWATER
In a recent collapse of a mine-shaft, that came about as a result of increased groundwater from a recent rain, has trapped a dozen workers inside. While not nearly as long as the many days spent underground by the trapped Chilean Miners, who went over 69 days underground before being drilled and excavated using an emergency tube shaft system, are keeping their fingers crossed for a quick rescue.
