The "Underwater Waterfall" Illusion at Mauritius Island
Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometers (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of the African continent. Mauritius was first discovered by the Arabs in 975 AD, then by the Portuguese between 1507 and 1513.

Located at the Southwestern tip of the island you will find a fascinating illusion. When viewed from above, a runoff of sand and silt deposits creates the impression of an "underwater waterfall".

The cause for this phenomenon is sand and silt moving down an underwater cliff. The geography that makes this possible is as follows. The island of Mauritius is located on a giant plateau that was created by seafloor spreading a few million years ago. Most of which is under 8-150 meters of water. Where the waterfall effect occurs there is a huge drop-off which drops down thousands of meters. Because of the islands angle when the waves beat upon the shore and displace sand, the drawing out of the waves creates, you could say, a down pulling effect. This motion pulls the sand and silt down the drop-off, thus creating the underwater waterfall illusion.

Check those accounts.

LinkedIn account: check. Tumblr account: check. Myspace account: check. May: the month of hacks. Be sure to check https://haveibeenpwned.com to see if your account shows up there.

The LinkedIn hack now ranks as the biggest on the haveibeenpwned.com site. Admittedly these hacks occurred quite some time ago but they are only now coming to light.

Tumblr is acting immediately, requiring a password reset on its service. In my case LinkedIn already reset my account back in 2012 when the first vestiges of the breach there came to light.

Growing up on Earth you learn from a very young age that liquids will remain in a cup as long as it stays upright. But Steve Mould has discovered a liquid that laughs at gravity and other forces that govern our universe: polyethylene oxide. It’s a polymer made from long chains of molecules that allow it to pour itself out of a container—even if it’s not tipped over.

Introduction
I am a simple person. I believe I have full control what happens in my life, even when I’m struggling. I am not trying to do what everybody else doing. Always do what I decide, choose my own ways.

Every experience is just another Important Lesson to me. If one thing I know, I'll fall but I'll grow. Every failure is a step to Success. There is no success without failures.

Love to meeting new good people. Always enjoying helping others to become their dreams. Life isn't perfect, but it sure is Great. Freedom is the greatest thing means to me…
