Cornell University has been trying to lessen their carbon emission for years. With combined heat and power plant, they were able to successfully achieve their goal.But it seems they are trying to protect it from others by having their location blurred on Google Earth.

This one runway airport was a military airstrip which was controlled by the United States until 1993. It was turned over to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force in 2009, including all the secrets that is hidden from Google Maps.

This dam helps run a nuclear power utility which many of its critics fear failing like the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant in Japan. Perhaps the map was blurred to prevent paranoid over thinkers to check the dam every five minutes.

New Study Reveals How Long Humans Can Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

Just how long can humans survive?

By

Physics students at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom calculated how long humanity can last in the event of a zombie apocalypse, and the results are far from promising.

According to studies published in the student-run Journal of Physics Special Topics, only fewer than 300 humans will remain alive 100 days after the much-feared apocalypse, with humans being outnumbered by the flesh-eating corpses at 1 to 1,000,000.
