Part-albino crocodile shot after fatal attack was '1-in-100-million rarity' -

An albino-headed crocodile that killed a man fishing on a Territory river has been described by an expert as a one-in-100-million rarity.

The distinctive 4.5m saltwater crocodile - known locally as Michael Jackson - was hunted down and killed a few hours after the 57-year-old fisherman was taken when he ventured into the water to retrieve a snagged fishing line on Monday evening.

Its head was pale while the rest of its body was normal in colouring.

Crocodile researcher Dr Adam Britton said while albino crocodile hatchlings were not uncommon, for an animal to survive into adulthood was highly unusual.

Violinist plays during brain surgery -

In any other profession minor shaking would barely be noticed, but in concert violinist Roger Frisch’s line of work, it was devastating. In 2009, after 40 years working as a professional musician, Roger found he could no longer bow smoothly.
After some convincing, he agreed to undergo deep brain stimulation at the Mayo Clinic Neural Engineering Lab to try to fix the problem.
Deep brain stimulation is a technique used to aid people with Parkinson’s disease, dystonia (neurological movement disorder) and essential tremors, as well as people suffering from OCD, major depression or chronic pain.
During the procedure, surgeons place electrodes inside the deepest parts of the brain and use electric pulses to modify neurological responses.

The WikiLeaks founder is unable to seek hospital treatment for his deteriorating health problems for fear of being arrested if he steps outside the embassy, his supporters have complained.

WATCH: New Salmon Cannon saves migration paths -

Not only does this new invention give wild salmon their migration routes back, but in doing so, it also makes a new clean source of energy even more environmentally friendly. All hail the Salmon Cannon.

Don’t get us wrong, no one dreamed up a ‘Salmon Cannon’ and made it happen. Like many of the greatest scientific inventions, the Salmon Cannon idea came about in the kind of round-about way that only a Salmon Cannon idea can, and these large, tasty fish are all the better for it.
Engineers at the US-based Whooshh Innovations were developing a special cannon to transport fruit gently without bruising it, when they heard about government researchers trying to solve a problem caused by their new hydroelectric dams. Unlike conventional dams, that are built to control the flow of water, hydroelectric dams are built to produce power. As water gushes through them and makes contact with a large number of turbines, these turbines are able to spin magnets over metal coils, which produces electricity.
While this electricity is clean and renewable, the dams themselves have been causing damage to the environments around them, and in Washington State, they’ve been blocking the migration paths of several populations of wild salmon.
