How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

The Bank of England’s gold vaults hold £194bn worth of gold bars: If you stacked them all on top of each other, they would be the same height as 46 Eiffel Towers. They hardly ever let anyone in to film, but the BBC’s Frank Gardner has been given access to the Bank of England’s gold vault.


Pets in China forced to wear bizarre makeshift face masks made by owners amid fears they may catch deadly coronavirus: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said there is no evidence to suggest pets can be infected with the new strain of coronavirus, which has killed more than 1,000 people and infected around 43,000 others worldwide.
However China’s National health commission has taken a different stance.
Spokesman and epidemiologist Li Lanjuan said: “If pets go out and have contact with an infected person, they have the chance to get infected.
“By then, the pets need to be isolated. In addition to people, we should be careful with all other mammals, especially pets.”
As a result, sales of pet masks are rocketing in China. Others are customizing human masks to accomodate their pets, in some cases with rather humorous results.  Full article, more pics and PHOTOCREDIT: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10947705/pets-china-makeshift-face-masks-coronavirus/


A plague of locusts has descended on East Africa. Entire fields stripped in 30 seconds: East Africa is in the midst of a crisis that sounds like something out of the Book of Exodus: A plague of locusts is spreading across the region, threatening the food supply of tens of millions. City-sized swarms of the dreaded pests are wreaking havoc as they descend on crops and pasturelands, devouring everything in a matter of hours. The scale of the locust outbreak, which now affects seven East African countries, is like nothing in recent memory. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2020/02/locust-plague-climate-science-east-africa/
