'Bigfoot has Australian genes!': The myth and mystery behind Australia's bush monster the Yowie
It's considered Australia's answer to the Loch Ness monster, with everyone from famous politicians to entire families having claimed to see the Yowie. 
Now Yowie hunter Rex Gilroy believes he has found evidence that proves North America's Bigfoot is a distant relative of the Australian bush monster.
The Blue Mountains resident and author of several books on the subject says he has identified four different species of the Yowie, which are a sub species of Homo erectus.

'Bigfoot has Aussie genes,' he told the MailOnline.
It's considered Australia's answer to the Loch Ness monster, with everyone from famous politicians to entire families having claimed to see the Yowie.

This is astounding ignorance!  Have they not heard of Google Maps?  It would take all of 5 seconds to look it up!
American news networks screw up their geography and call Tony Abbott “Prime Minister John Abbot”
It was a double whammy for Texas’ KXAN news, who not only misspelt the word ‘search’ in their infograph, but mistakenly placed Perth in Tasmania.
The two are close to 4000km apart, or a 2 day, ten hour drive.
AMERICAN TV news networks have made a series of embarrassing stuff-ups in their coverage of the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

One of the many pools in the Karijini National Park, Western Australia

This one is sacred to the aboriginal people, from what I understand, they prefer it isn't referred to by name, out of respect I'll not name it, I'd prefer if you didn't as well. It is a beautiful place for a swim and some contemplation though!

Join +Colby Brown and myself on a photography workshop in Karijini and you'll get to swim in this pool too!

Right. So it's sacred, so you can't talk about it by name, but swimming in it and photographing it is fine?

Battle to the death for cane toad pest and poisonous snake at Kakadu but neither wins the prize
WHO wins in a fight between a death adder snake or cane toad? Neither.

These two fought a battle to the death, but in a tragedy akin to Romeo and Juliet neither survived.

It was a shock to tour guide Sean “Chizo” Chisholm, who came across the pair as he led a group of adventurers through a walking track heading to Gubara in Kakadu National Park.

“It just blew me away, it was just awesome,” he said.

“I reckon the snake would’ve bit the toad with its highly toxic venom and when the toad went under the attack, it would’ve ejected the poison from its glands to kill the snake.

Sydney’s underwater world is coming to Street View on Google Maps
Street View imagery has been used for many purposes around the world, from town planning to artistic projects to disaster recovery. It can also be very valuable for scientists looking to better understand a place - even when that place is underwater.
