Boomerang

A boomerang is a curved, usually wooden, device which is thrown. A boomerang spins as it flies through the air, and can travel long distances. A boomerang is designed to, when thrown correctly, fly a curved path to return to the person who threw it

A boomerang is a tool, typically constructed as a flat air foil that, when thrown, is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower. It is well known as a weapon used by Indigenous Australians for hunting.

Boomerangs have been historically used for hunting, as well as a sport, and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian icon, and come in various shapes and sizes.

Conspicuous Cliff - Walpole Wilderness

Conspicuous Beach is a beautiful unspoilt surf beach 20 minutes drive from Walpole on the south coast of Western Australia. It's one of only 3 places along the Walpole Coast that's accessible to 2WD vehicles.  Access to Conspicuous Cliff Beach is via a boardwalk, small stairway, and a walk across the shallow waterway emptying into the ocean.  Great excuse to take of the shoes and walk barefooted through the sand and breathe in the ocean air.  This is what holidays on the South Coast are all about.  We had the whole beach to ourselves, surrounded by beauty and breathtaking views,   A beautiful way to spend the last couple of hours of our last day.  If you are travelling to albany via Walpole it is worth taking a small detour to visit Conspicious Cliffs and Beach.

The beach is named for the small, yet indeed quite conspicuous, limestone cliff perched atop a tall, steep hill that towers over the beach.

Then we saw more stairs and just couldn't resist climbing to the very top.  The views were quite spectacular and the wind almost blew us away. 

 

What Happens When Fruits And Vegetables Are Scanned Under An MRI?

Have you ever wondered what fruits and vegetables might look like if they were scanned underneath an MRI? Yes? Well, look no further! A project by Andy Ellison, an MRI technologist who works at the Boston University Medical School, reveals fascinating images of pears, bananas, and more under the machine.

The Magnetic Resonance Imager (MRI) uses magnets to align hydrogen atoms and radio waves to produce an image. When done in layered succession, a three-dimensional image of the item being examined is produced. And, after scrolling through the collection below, we think you’ll agree that the result is amazing. The lines and shapes of the fruits and vegetables resemble veins and capillaries, similar in appearance to living organisms.
