Toxic Sludge Floods Hungary Villages

On Monday, October 4th, a large reservoir filled with toxic red sludge in western Hungary ruptured, releasing approximately 700,000 cubic meters (185 million gallons) of stinking caustic mud, which killed many animals, at least 5  people, and injured over 120 – many with chemical burns. The 12-foot-high flood of sludge inundated several towns, sweeping cars off the road as it flowed into the nearby Marcal River. According to the lateset news, Hungary’s toxic sludge spill has reached the Danube River but may not harm wildlife after emergency services battled to neutralise the alkaline substance. The red sludge in the reservoir is a byproduct of refining bauxite into alumina, which took place at an alumina plant run by the Hungarian Alumina Production and Trading Company. A criminal probe has been opened by Hungarian authorities.

A slideshow and a video slideshow have been made with 30 HD pictures on toxic sludge in Hungary:

10 Coffee Facts for National Coffee Day

Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day. A day to celebrate a drink that many people can’t start their day without. There were numerous stores, like Dunkin’ Donuts, who had given out free or discounted coffee on this day, but when you got your cup o’ Joe, did you know the interesting facts about coffee:

1.) A dancing goat discovered coffee. Well, farmers in Ethiopia noticed that their goats would get all jumpy after eating coffee beans, so they decided to try it for themselves.

2.) Coffee was a food before it was a drink. Before people figured out how to brew coffee, they used to eat it. The Oatmeal reports that African Tribes used to eat “energy balls” of coffee beans and fat.

3.) Coffee grows on tree. I’ve never seen one, but coffee trees can grow up to 30ft tall. Farmers cultivate coffee trees to about 10 feet.

4.) A “cup of Joe” was first coined in World War II. Soldiers, known as “Joe’s,” were identified as big coffee drinkers.

5.) Only two types of coffee tree are widely cultivated. 70% of the world drinks coffee from Arabica coffee trees. The rest drink coffee from Robusta trees.

6.) According to Herritage Coffee, there is only one product that gets traded more than coffee – Oil.

7.) A coffee tree takes about 5 years to mature. The average annual yield from a coffee tree is only enough for one roasted pound of coffee.

8.) Americano is another coffee term coined during World War II. American soldiers would order espresso with water to cut down on the bitter flavor.

9.) Coffee has been used as a beverage for about 700 years. Instant coffee was invented in 1906 by George Washington, but not that George Washington. The man who invented instant coffee was from Belgium.

10.) Gomestic reports that an average of 1400 million cups of coffee are consumed every day around the world.
