NOAA divers confront a bus-sized mass of fishing nets that was reported last September at the remote Pearl and Hermes Atoll in the North Pacific. All fishing nets found during the mission will be used as fuel to produce electricity in Hawaii, part of the state's Nets to Energy program, to which NOAA has donated wayward fishing gear since 2002. Every 100 tons of nets recovered can generate enough electricity to power 43 homes for a year.

These types of business cards were given to men at train stations as they entered town to advertise houses of prostitution. These cards were in popular and open use until the 1930's. The women were called "Soiled Doves" in the Victorian era.  During the Civil War there was such a huge epidemic of venereal disease that in one town the army  quarantined "doves" on a river boat.
