Mga Eksperto Nagulat Matapos Nilang Makita Ang Bagay Na Ito Sa Ilalim Ng Stonehenge

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England. This monument is consisted of an outer ring of vertical sarsen standing stones where one measures around 13 feet high and seven feet wide. The stones that weigh around 25 tons were then topped with connecting horizontal lintel stones and inside is a ring of smaller bluestones.

It has been one of the most popular tourist attractions in England. But what people didn’t know is the buried secret underneath the Stonehenge!

A team of archaeologists recently discovered human skeletons buried underneath the monument of Stonehenge. As they take a closer look, they found out that one of the human skeletons was hiding a jaw-dropping secret tucked inside its mouth for more thousands of years already.

Jackie McKinley, a student at the University of Bradford int he northern England has always had a passion for the study of human remains. She has been spending her time analyzing the archaeological sites in Britain including the monoliths of Stonehenge.

In February 2018, McKinley appeared in a documentary in Discover UK where she uncovered all the details of their incredible discovery underneath the Stonehenge.

Theories revealed that the Stonehenge was constructed by the Druids which are ancient people recorded in Britain during the third century B.C.

Given the weight of these stones, people can’t help but wonder how did the people lacking machinery were able to form these stones on top of each other?

There were a lot of theories regarding its construction but experts have already accepted that it’s human innovation that made it’s construction possible and not a natural occurrence.

One of the most mind boggling discoveries made in the Stonehenge was the one involving an ancient man. In 2002, the Wessex Archaeology discovered the grave of a man who was known as the Amesbury Archer.

A few miles away from Stonehenge, the grave was known as the richest Bronze Age Burial site in Britain. During the excavation, they have discovered 100 artifacts from the site including gold hair accessories back in 2,470 B.C.

What’s amazing about this is the fact that the gold found at his grave was known as the earliest example of the precious metal uncovered on British soil.

Alongside the make skeleton, archaeologists discovered a number of copper utensils and ancient ceramic pots.

Further studies revealed that there’s more to learn about the Amesbury Archer. One of it is the fact that the ancient man was not a local to Stonehenge. They have discovered that his tooth enamel revealed that he had spent his childhood in the Alps.

Experts also believed that the man was a metalworker who’s expert in the craft with gold.

However, it’s still unclear if the Amesbury Archer was involved in the building of Stonehenge or was he just drawn to the attraction of the circle.

The discovery of the golden artifacts only revealed that the Bronze Age metalworker was not the only person laid to rest around the megaliths.

The best discovery that McKinley was able to make was about the markings on the skeleton’s vertebrae and jaw that suggest it had been decapitated with a sword.

The discovery then suggested a new story in the Stonehenge that was later on revealed in 2018. The whole story was revealed in a documentary.

In the documentary, McKinley focused on her discoveries for the artifacts buried underneath the Stonehenge.

“From the skeleton, I can tell this was probably a young, adult male – probably in his early 20s,” she explains

“This is a pair of gold ornaments that were found rolled together inside the mouth,” McKinley explains.

“They’re tucked together against the right hand side of the inner jaw. Which means they were either placed in the mouth at the time of death, or certainly before burial.”

“These are really rare,” McKinley continues. “There are only about eight pairs known from the country.”

“These are very finely worked items, and to be able to have the… not just the technology, but the skill to have learned how to change something which was essentially a lump of rock into something that delicate and that beautifully worked, would really have been seen as something quite magical,” McKinley explains.

Although there were a lot of things uncovered on this man’s grave, McKinley believes that the metalworker is not responsible for the ornaments found in his grave.

“I think he was the person who worked the magic,” she explains. “I think he was the person who could make those changes from pieces of rock to items of beauty.”

People believe that money is the root of all evil. Truth is, money only becomes the root of all evil if greed comes with it.

As time flies, people are getting greedier to the point that they would care more about expensive stuff and money instead of life itself. These people are the ones who end up doing bad things in exchange for a huge sum of money.

However, it appears that not everyone cares only about money.

Ali Banat is one of the few people who didn’t really care about money. Banat, who was born and raised in Sydney, Australia was born with a silver spoon and has been known for having a good life with his parents.

Growing up, his parents gave him enough money to start his own business. Soon enough, he became an owner of a successful security and electrical business that gave hi a luxurious life.

Ali Banat owned a lot of expensive things from Rolex watches, to sports cars, branded shoes, resorts, mansions and even branded clothing.

For years, Ali spent his life growing his business, buying properties and partying, proving how much he’s enjoying his life.

However, the millionaire who has a lavish lifestyle got struck by a bad luck after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of mouth cancer. It was already on the fourth-stage when he was diagnosed with the mouth cancer. The doctor advised him that he only has seven months to live from that day.

Given the fact that he’s extremely rich, Ali can easily pay for a treatment regardless of its cost, just so he’d live longer. However, Ali refused to receive treatments and thought to himself that despite all the treatments, he knew that he would still die at a young age.

He humbly accepted his fate and decided to leave the world after making an impact on the lives of those who are in need.

In the next few months after he was diagnosed, Ali started donating all of his luxurious possessions. He donated these to people in need in different parts of the world.

He said, “when you find out you’re sick or you don’t have much time to live, this is the last thing you want to chase. And that’s how we should live our lives every day”.

Ali believes that on the day of judgement, his wealth wouldn’t matter. What will matter is the good that you did for others and how your actions made a difference in people’s lives.

Ali’s beliefs gave birth to a charity foundation called Muslims of the World that aims to build villages for widows, mosques, schools that will house orphans, medical centers and other businesses that will help the local community. The foundation earned about 1 million dollars.

Despite his condition, Ali still chose to personally visit the African countries to make sure that 100% of the donation will go directly to the projects of their charity foundation.

In 2018, Ali Banat lost his battle to cancer. Despite leaving the world at a young age, the multimillionaire was able to leave a legacy that truly inspired and touched millions of people in the world.

Despite that he already passed away, people from alll over the globe are still coming to donate money to his foundation to make sure that the legacy lives on forever.

‘Di Mapigilang Lumuha Ng Partially Vaccinated Na Empleyadong Ito Matapos Siyang Di Pasakayin Sa PUV

A daily commuter can’t stop crying after she was advised that she cannot ride the public transport just because she’s yet to have her second vaccine shot.

Partially vaccinated is what they are called. In a report made by the 24 Oras, an employee named Diane was crying her eyes out in the streets while continuously expressing her dismay over the situation.

According to Diane, she woke up early that day to catch up with the public transport because she needed to take her medical exam at work. Unfortunately, she was advised to go home and was not allowed to ride the public vehicles just because she hasn’t gotten her second vaccine shot yet.

“Nakakapagod ‘yung ginagawa nila. Partially vaccinated naman kami. Bakit ‘di kami pinayagan?” Diane said in between her tears.

Diane also reiterated that it’s not their fault that their first dose schedule was on December and the second dose is set on February.

“Nagpa-vaccine naman kami. Hindi naman namin kasalanan na ‘yung second dose namin February pa. December ako nagpa-first dose. [AstraZeneca] po kasi ‘yung vaccine ko.” she

Under the DOTr Order No. 2022-001, partially vaccinated people are not allowed to ride the public transportation. On January 18, DOTr then clarified that for partially vaccinated individuals who need to get to work, they would need to bring the following:

1. Company ID
2. Proof of appointment for medical checkup, job interview or exam, and other services
3. Barangay health pass

DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Libiran then stated that Diane was not able to provide any of those proof that proves her travel is essential.

“Ang problema po, wala pong naipakita si Ma’am na kahit anong (The problem is, Ma’am was not able to show any) proof of job appointment, travel, ID, medical examination schedule/appointment, or even barangay health pass, to prove that the travel is essential,” Libiran said.

As expected, the implementation of the No Vaccine, No Ride policy received a backlash from the netizens who claim that it’s unfair especially with the fact that the rules are crystal clear but the implementation is not.

The netizens also noticed how the changes made by the government in terms of handling this pandemic always affect the poorest of the poor.

“It’s always like this. From announcing lockdowns on midnight effective the next morning to this. In the end, the poor are the ones most affected. Is it the people’s fault that their second dose is still in February? Just reminding the government that we had vaccines late,” penned by @nacho_cheeseyy

A netizen also mentioned that this incident just shows how incompetent our government is.

“So heart-breaking to see this. The ineptness and incompetence of this gov’t is too much that a full grown adult would just break down and cry out of frustration. I can feel it and it’s absurd that we have to go through this every day.” @sumshine013 wrote.
