The Boy Who Harvested The Wind
Quote:
William Kamkwamba grew up in a village in Malawi, in southeast Africa. He could not attend school because his parents couldn't afford the tuition of $80 per year. From time to time, he sneaked into classes to learn math and English, but it wasn't long until the teachers discovered his presence and kicked him out.

Staying optimistic may keep your heart healthy, study says

Quote:
Heart patients with an optimistic outlook are more likely to be healthier down the road and survive longer than those with less rosy views, new research suggests.

A study in Archives of Internal Medicine, out Monday, that followed 2,800 heart patients shows that those with more positive attitudes about their recovery had about a 30% greater chance of survival after 15 years than patients with pessimistic leanings.

'Amazing' albatross raises chick at age 60

Quote:
The chick was found during a survey of nesting grounds last month in the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge in the Pacific Ocean. The bird appears healthy and will probably fly to sea this summer, says biologist Bruce Peterjohn of the U.S. Geological Survey.

Chandler Robbins, a USGS scientist, first banded Wisdom for tracking purposes in 1956, when she was at least 5 years old. Wisdom has been banded five times with an identification tag on the leg that lets scientists follow her movements.

"Just the idea of a bird 60 years old or more still bearing young is amazing," Peterjohn says. Only one other wild bird, an albatross of another species, is known to have lived longer — 61. Wisdom will tie that bird's record if she lives another year, Peterjohn says. "Most Laysan albatrosses live to 30 or 40. Just to make it to 60 is pretty incredible."

In the first picture, she looks just like the RCA dog.

Great story.
