It has been more than two years since the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 bound for China went missing. It was March 8, 2014 when the Boeing 777 aircraft vanished without a trace along with its 227 passengers and 12 in-flight crew. After all this time, the relatives of the MH370 passengers haven’t gotten any closure yet. Various speculations have arisen from conspiracy theories, terrorist takeover, alien abductions and whatnot. After the intensive search and rescue operations made by the joint efforts of various nations, nothing concrete turned up. Search operations went as far as the areas near Perth, Australia but yielded unfruitful results. Years later, washed up airplane parts are rekindling the MH370 case anew. Could these artifacts tell the untold story of the world’s most mysterious airplane crash?

Just a bit of a refresher on the MH370 flight path and the areas searched so far…

If the previous searches yielded little, could it be that everybody is just searching up the wrong area? That seems to be the actual explanation, as the most recent artifact finds are washing up off tangents in areas overlooked before. The tiny islands in the Indian and Southern Oceans seem to hold the clues.

And now, see the compiled photos of the airplane parts and other artifacts believed to be from the ill-fated MH370. The last set of pictures perhaps is the most haunting.

Aside from bits and pieces possibly from the aircraft, some artifacts totaling around a hundred items have been found by Gibson all throughout Nosy Boraha. Some have been bags, shoe sole, laptop case with MENSA inscription, Muslim praying cap, among others. The items are to be turned over to the Malaysian government as possible passenger artifacts. The photos are posted in hopes that the passenger’s relatives could identify some of them. Below are some of the photos that we are able to obtain.

It is difficult to find more evidence since the surrounding waters in the area is quite deep and vast. But we should not lose hope that the day will come and the mystery of the MH370 shall indeed be solved. As these chilling new evidence spring forth, we hope fervently that with the joint efforts of the Australian, Chinese, American and Malaysian investigation teams become fruitful. May the families and loved ones left by the victims find closure, and may the victims of the crash find peace as well.

12 days before the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics draws to a close, the question whether it is one of the most ill-prepared Olympics held ever is evident. It seems that not only are the athletes facing off against other skilled athletes from all around the world for those Olympics medals, but also with the ill-prepared accommodations and venues of the events. We have gathered some of the issues and incidents reported about the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics which point to this conclusion.

1. Athletes' and media's accommodations "unlivable" and hazardous

To house the thousands of athletes, coaches, and media that will cover the event, Rio has allotted accommodations called the Olympic Village and Media Village. However, it seems that the preparations are not enough and resulted to the rooms being criticized by the athletes and news reporters. The Australian delegates are the first to point it out saying that,

"Problems include blocked toilets, leaking pipes, exposed wiring, darkened stairwells where no lighting has been installed, and dirty floors in need of a massive clean. In operations areas, water has come through the ceiling resulting in large puddles on the floor around cabling and wiring."

Airports can be a drag. They bring up your stress levels, especially if you have to rush from one terminal to another to make a connecting flight.

What's worse are the miles of floor to walk through and throngs of people you have to dodge to make it. And all through this dragging your heavy luggage with you.

All this hassle gave a Chicago businessman, Kevin O'Donnell an "a-ha!" light bulb moment. He's now offering air commuters the chance to travel from terminal to terminal faster.

Chen Guanming, a 61-year-old farmer from the village of Tongshan in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province, is probably the biggest fan of the Olympics. He has literally been following the Olympic Games all over the world in his 400-pound, three-wheeled pedicab rickshaw.

Chen was not always so adventurous. When he was younger, he hardly traveled beyond his village. However, he caught the travel bug in 2001, when it was announced that China's bid to host 2008 Olympic Games was successful.
