Northern Ontario Jesus statue gets shocking replacement head

A new head on a baby Jesus statue is causing some to look twice in a Sudbury, Ont., churchyard.

The head — which went missing from the pearly white statue a year ago — has been replaced by a handmade terracotta sculpture created by a local artist.

"It really is shocking to the eyes because of the big contrast in colour," the church's priest Gérard Lajeunesse told CBC News.


That's when a local artist knocked on Lajeunesse's door, asking about the statue.

"She was quite upset about it and she offered to do something if she could," Lajeunesse said.



Clever Halloween Costume

This year's smoking hot halloween costume? The Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The doomed phablet might have been discontinued by its manufacturer, but it makes a great (if risky) fancy dress option


Yes, that’s a smoking stack of Note 7 boxes. The phone, which has been on fire (not figuratively) for several weeks now, has officially crossed the threshold to “Halloween costume”.

As well as giving a brief breakdown on how he made it (spoilers: a lot of empty boxes and a tube for blowing smoke through them), excit3d also described his fiancée’s matching costume: “The finished costume will add caution tape and my fiancée is dressing as a firefighter and she will be following me around with a fire extinguisher.”

MIT nuclear fusion record marks latest step towards unlimited clean energy

by Damian Carrington

Monday 17 October 2016
A nuclear fusion world record has been set in the US, marking another step on the long road towards the unlocking of limitless clean energy.

A team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created the highest plasma pressure ever recorded, using its Alcator C-Mod tokamak reactor. High pressures and extreme temperatures are vital in forcing atoms together to release huge amounts of energy.

Nuclear fusion powers the sun and has long been touted as the ultimate solution to powering the world while halting climate change. But, as fusion sceptics often say, the reality has stubbornly remained a decade or two away for many years.

Now MIT scientists have increased the record plasma pressure to more than two atmospheres, a 16% increase on the previous record set in 2005, at a temperature of 35 million C and lasting for two seconds. The breakthrough was presented at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s fusion summit in Japan on Monday.
