Thorugh smuggled sperm some Palestinians become dads from jail

Faridah Ma’arouf laughed as she recalled hurrying out of the prison gates after visiting day was done, hiding a sample of her son’s sperm.

“We had a taxi waiting to take us very fast,’’ she said. “I thought I had to get it to the doctor quickly.’’

It seems to have been a successful operation. Three months later Ma’arouf sat in an IVF clinic where the progress of her daughter-in-law’s pregnancy was being monitored.

It is what could be described as the brainchild of Dr. Salim Abu Khaizaran, head of the Razan Center for Infertility in the Palestinian city of Ramallah on the West Bank.

“We are doing this to help these ladies because we feel as doctors that the wives of prisoners pay a very high price,” Abu Khaizaran said without revealing how many other such procedures he had conducted. “She has to wait for her husband, sometimes she can spend her lovely youth just waiting. And by the time her husband is out, many of them will not be able to have babies.”

Ancient Lost Continent just discovered in Indian Ocean

Evidence of a drowned “microcontinent” has been found in sand grains from the beaches of a small Indian Ocean island, scientists say.

A well-known tourist destination, Mauritius is located about 1,200 miles (2,000 kilometers) off the coast of Africa, east of Madagascar. Scientists think the tiny island formed some nine million years ago from cooling lava spewed by undersea volcanoes.

But recently, researchers have found sand grains on Mauritius that contain fragments of the mineral zircon that are far older than the island, between 660 million and about 2 billion years old.

In a new study, detailed in the current issue of the journal Nature Geoscience, scientists concluded that the older minerals once belonged to a now vanished landmass, tiny bits of which were dragged up to the surface during the formation of Mauritius. 

When lava moved through continental material on the way towards the surface, they picked up a few rocks containing zircon, study co-author explained.

Most of these rocks probably disintegrated and melted due to the high temperatures of the lava  but some grains of zircons survived and were frozen into the lava [during the eruption] and rolled down to form rocks on the Mauritian surface.

Solar Flare Bursts Into Fiery Rain Over The Sun

On the 19th of July a solar flare burst from the surface of the sun. Instead of dispersing, the hot plasma became trapped in the magnetic field emanating from the region of the eruption.

Normally invisible to the naked eye, the lines of the magnetic field lit up as it captured the flare and forced it back down to the solar surface in a dazzling phenomenon known as a coronal rain.
