More than a century after Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated Antarctic expedition, the photographic notebook of George Murray Levick – a surgeon, zoologist, and photographer on that voyage – has been discovered at Scott’s final expedition base at Cape Evans, on Antarctica’s Ross Island.

When it was launched it looked like nothing else. Its pizza slice-like design made it one of the most stable ships for its size and it has since spawned a whole new class of crazy looking vessels. Yet this clandestine spy ship is most notorious in Russia, whose military absolutely detests its existence.
Meet Norway’s Marjata, one of the most advanced spy ships in the world.

Notices to Mariners are updates generally issued by the charting authorities of various chart-producing countries, initially to provide notice of features of those charts which had been rendered inaccurate or incomplete in some way by the overhaul of current events. Chart corrections, if you practice such things — and responsible mariners should — generally appear first in Notices to Mariners, even though we usually get them more succinctly and easily via various hydrographic agency websites. Sometimes, you hear more urgent or timely versions.

A reporter from a Lebanese news program is interviewing a man standing on a pier. Behind him, another fellow thinks this is a great time to take a selfie with his smartphone. Or he’s trying to record the scene in front of him. Anyway, he’s not watching where he’s walking and goes for a swim.

If you want to get a picture of wild dolphin populations’ health, it’s typically necessary to capture some of the animals and then obtain blood samples or skin biopsies. Needless to say, it’s hard work, and the dolphins tend not to like it. Soon, however, it may be possible to gather the same information using a device that samples their breath.
