Nepal was hit by a 7.3-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday which has already killed 32 people and injured over 1,000 others, with the death toll rising. Back in April the country suffered widespread devastation after a 7.8-magnitude quake killed over 8,000.
CNN reported that Tuesday's earthquake triggered an avalanche in a sparsely populated region about 30 miles north of Kathmandu. Nepal, which has suffered a series of aftershocks following April's earthquake, is seeking to asses the extent of the latest damage, communications ministry spokesman Minendra Rijal said.
41-year-old documentarian Marc Sarrado from Spain shared his experience in Nepal's Nuwakot Valley: "For the first seconds, it was complete silence. By the fifth second, everybody started to scream," he said. more >>
The moment a mother goes for her first ultrasound, a special bond is made between the baby and the mother. As a blind woman, the experience of this bond is much different. You must rely fully on the description of others to get an idea of what it looks like. That would be the case, except 3D printing gives this woman an incredible experience.
Huggies has set out to make one blind woman's ultrasound experience one she'll never forget. By using this unique 3D-printing technique, they fabricated a touchable three-dimensional version of her baby's face. It is something that was impossible before today's technology became available. By giving her this amazing gift, the doctor has given her a precious moment she would have otherwise only been able to experience at birth. How she reacts to the mold will put tears of joy into your eyes.

Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against media buzz over NASA's chief scientist Ellen Stofan's claims that the discovery of alien life is only decades away. Ham argued that the search for alien life is a secularist objective, and said that the Bible suggests that life outside of Earth does not exist.
"Evolutionists are convinced they'll find life in outer space because if evolution occurred here on Earth, then it must have occurred somewhere else. According to secularists, Earth is not special," Ham wrote on his Answers in Genesis blog.
"In their view, it's just one of many places where, over the supposed billions of years of the universe's history, life managed to come from non-life and begin the process of evolution. Despite a lack of evidence, scientists are becoming increasingly convinced that life will be found soon." more >>
Italian forensics investigators have used the Shroud of Turin, believed by some to be the burial cloth of Christ, to produce an image of how Jesus might have possibly looked like as a child.
The Independent reported that police generated a photo-fit image from the negative facial image imprinted on the famous shroud. They then used a reversed aging process which included reducing the size of the jaw, raising the chin, and other techniques to produce the image of the young Jesus. Photos released online show the step-by-step reversed aging process used.
The shroud's authenticity has been the subject of much debate and scientific testing. It is recognized by the Vatican as an important relic, but the Roman Catholic Church has never proclaimed its stance on whether the face imprinted in the shroud really belongs to Jesus. more >>
New York Times best-selling author, comedian and self-professed Christian Steve Harvey says he can't "wrap his mind around" Bruce Jenner's recent interview with Diane Sawyer where he told the world that he identifies as a woman.
During a Sunday interview with "Hip Hollywood," Harvey shared his thoughts on the Jenner's announcement.
"Everybody says it's the bravest thing they've ever seen, so that's the politically correct thing to say," Harvey asserted. "I can't wrap my mind around it all. Zero. I have no concept of what that means. Nothing negative. He has every right to live his life the way he want to, but I can't come in the house and make that announcement to my wife, to my children. Nothing." more >>
Answers in Genesis, founded by creationist Ken Ham, has argued in an article against suggestions that Neanderthals were ancient pre-Adamic and therefore soulless humans, asserting that they, too, were made in God's image.
The article, written by AiG's Elizabeth Mitchell, challenges what she says are arguments by Old Earth creationists such as Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe, that position Neanderthals as "pre-Adamic intelligent but soulless human-like bipedal beings who painted on cave walls and buried their dead."
"Noting that this amounts to a belief that soulless humans, though Ross would not call them human, lived before Adam and Eve, we have often called attention to the inconsistencies of Ross' position with the Word of God," Mitchell wrote. more >>
