Have you seen the photos circulating on social media? Is it true that green gems are raining down on Hawaii because of the Kilauea eruption?
"Olivine is not raining down on Hawaii from the Kilauea eruptionโ€”at least not in the way that the photos circulating on social media suggest. Geologists from the University of Hawaii and USGS say the olivine crystals in the photos are likely not from this eruption, which they say is olivine poor. Trace amounts of olivine could be embedded within some of the volcanic rocks that spew out of the volcano, but these mineral specimens are tiny and would not rain down in the manner suggested."

A baby panda born in a Malaysian zoo five months ago made her public debut!
The female, which has not yet been named, is the second offspring of giant pandas Liang Liang and Xing Xing. Zoologists said the healthy cub weighs 9 kilograms (19.8 pounds).

Did you know Ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest esteem? They worshipped a Cat Goddess, often represented as half feline, half woman, whom they called Bastet. The main center for the worship of Bastet was in northern Egypt at the city of Bubastis. #KINGTUT

"Over 2,000 new Hieroglyphs may soon be available for use on cell phones, computers, and other digital devices.
Collaborations among Egyptologists and digital linguistics promise global visualizations of what was written on inscriptions, papyri, wall paintings, and other sources of Hieroglyphs. It may also allow for more popular knowledge of Egyptian Hieroglyphs and encourage its assimilation into popular language-learning apps like Duolingo."
