  No, Mirai Nagasu does not have a giant 'USA' tattoo on her inner thigh The first American woman to hit a triple axel at the Olympics did so with the aid of some eye-catching athletic tape under her tights.Eventually, the mystery was solved: Nagasu was using some Team USA-branded kinesiology tape under her tights. KT Tape, the company that manufactures a product popular with many athletes, sprung into social-media action to let inquiring minds know the story.

The Great Pyramid of Giza has long been lauded as one of the most pioneering feats of engineering, having been built over 4500 years ago. But now engineer Glen Dash believes he has finally solved the mystery behind the structure and why it was designed in this way.

The mystery of Giza has finally been solved : archaeologists uncovered who made the Great Pyramid and how they managed to do built one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world.

Samsung finally fixed its terrible emoji in Android Oreo

  Samsung finally fixed its terrible emoji in Android Oreo Samsung has made great strides to fix its custom Android UI over the past few years, going from the bloated and ugly TouchWiz to the less-bloated and sleek Samsung Experience. Unfortunately, its emoji have continued to be terrible, often expressing radically different emotions than those of other brands. Thankfully, Samsung is finally doing something about that as it rolls out Android Oreo to its suite of flagships.As first reported by Emojipedia, the Oreo update includes Samsung Experience 9.0, which brings redesigned the redesigned emoji in addition to a host of new features.

:: Mysterious void came upon in Nice Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Even if the paper provides a conceivable cause of the long-standing thriller of ways the Giza pyramids had been aligned so as it should be , not anything is bound.

Archaeologists have long wondered how the ancient Egyptians aligned the corners of the pyramids of Giza along the cardinal points so accurately.

But now an electrical engineer with an interest in archaeology thinks he has the answer.

The near-perfect alignment along the four points of the compass might be the result of the ancient Egyptians using the autumn equinox - when the Earth's equator passes through the centre of the Sun's disk.

Glen Dash, an amateur archaeologist, has published a paper in The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture that tries to explain the impressive accuracy of this ancient feat of engineering.

To onlookers, it must have seemed as if they were imbued with special powers as a result of their divine connection.Research newly published February 12 in the journal Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences has provided a geological explanation for these strange happenings.

THE history behind the oldest and only survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World has finally been solved . A stunning video which appears to show three crystal clear UFOs hovering over the ancient pyramids of Giza has gone viral.

Although the paper offers a possible explanation for the long-standing mystery of how the Giza pyramids were aligned so accurately, nothing is certain. "The Egyptians, unfortunately, left us few clues," Mr Dash wrote. "No engineering documents or architectural plans have been found that give

To prove this theory, Mr Dash made his own experiment using a tall rod, commonly known as a gnomon, and a piece of string.

On the day of the equinox, he placed the rod in the ground, marked the tips of the shadows and formed a smooth curve of points.

He then intercepted a couple of the points on the curve and was able to draw a line running almost perfectly east to west.

Although Mr Dash's experiment was conducted in Pomfret, Connecticut, the engineer believes that, on a clear and sunny day, the same thing should work in Egypt.

He argues that the Egyptians may have used the same technique to build Pharaoh Khufu’s iconic pyramids because the degree of error measured in the experiment was slightly counter-clockwise, just like the slight error found in the alignment of the 4,500-year-old monuments in Giza.

"The Egyptians, unfortunately, left us few clues," Mr Dash wrote.

"No engineering documents or architectural plans have been found that give technical explanations demonstrating how the ancient Egyptians aligned any of their temples or pyramids."

Some archaeologists have argued that the Egyptians used the pole star, while others say they used the sun's shadow to align the pyramids.

It is even possible, says Mr Dash, that the ancient civilisation used multiple methods.
