The whole work was completed on 11 December 2011 and measured 25,18 square meters.Saimir says he wanted to his incredible mosaic to convey the message of "One world, one family, over a cup of coffee.

4726Oldest extracted human DNAA 400,000-year old human-like speciesSpain, ,Burgo04 December 2013The oldest human DNA found and analysed ("sequenced") was taken from the thighbone of a 400,000-year old human-like species whose remains were found in a cave called “Sima de los Huesos” (“Pit of Bones”), in the province of Burgo, northern Spain. The results of the study by scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, with co-authors in Spain and China, were published in the journal Nature on 4 December 2013. The study suggests that we may share a common human ancestor with the Denisova hominins, a similar, yet separate species to the Neanderthals, who also share a common ancestor with modern man. The fact that this connection was found in bones in Spain came as a surprise, as until then scientists thought that the Denisovans lived in Eastern Asia, in present-day Siberia, and not in Western Europe.

4729Largest wasp nestVespula germanicaNew Zealand, Waimaukau01 April 1963The largest wasp nest ever recorded was found on a farm at Waimaukau, New Zealand, in April 1963. Despite being composed of wood scrapings mashed up with saliva into a papier-mâché like substance, it was so heavy that it had fallen from the tree in which it had been hanging onto the ground, where it had then split into two. When whole, it measured 3.7 m (12 ft 2 in) long, and was 1.75 m (5.25 ft) in diameter and approximately 5.5 m (18 ft) in circumference. It had probably been constructed by introduced German wasps (Vespula germanica).

4732Closest planetary binary system to EarthPluto-CharonNot ApplicablePluto (1,153 km, 716.44 miles diameter) and its moon Charon (603.5 km, 375 miles), form the most unusual relationship in the Solar System. At 52% of the diameter of Pluto, the moon Charon is so big in relation to Pluto that they actual orbit a common point in space that lies above the actual surface of Pluto. For a normal moon orbiting a planet, the point in space about which they both orbit is very near the centre of the planet involved, and hence produces only a small wobble in the Planet's orbit. However, true binary systems orbit a point in space outside either of their two bodies. This is the case for the Pluto-Charon system, where it is this common point in space that orbits the sun in a normal orbital path. This is the only true planetary binary system in the Solar System and the closest to Earth.

4735First industrial moving assembly lineFord Motor Company, Highland ParkfirstUnited States, Detroit01 January 1913The Ford Motor Company initiated the First Moving Assembly Line in the automobile industry in 1913 in Highland Park, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Not only was Ford the first to implement this, it also marked the first truly advanced and mechanized assembly line in any modern industry, with the result that cars cost less and could be easily purchased by the American middle class. Although there had been the assembly of interchangeable parts of guns going back to the mid-19th Century, (rifles manufactured in Springfield, Massachusetts and Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia)), Ford’s manufacturing methods represented a quantum leap in the annals of Mass Production. That term originated in a 1926 Encyclopedia Britannica article referring to the pioneering automaker. With the advent of the new manufacturing technique, assembly time for autos was dramatically reduced in 1913 from 12 ½ hours to ultimately 1 hour and 33 minutes and a phenomenal increase of some 200,000 cars that year to well over a over a million by 1920.

4737First man killed during a cockerel fightJose Luis OchoaUnited States30 January 2011On 30 January 2011, Jose Luis Ochoa of Lamont, California, USA died as the result, according to the later autopsy conclusion, of an accidental “sharp force injury” to his right calf. Ochoa, together with other spectators, had fled from the scene of a cockfight where five dead roosters and other evidence of cockfighting were found, according to a sergeant in the Sheriff’s department. Kern County Superior Court records show that Ochoa paid $370 in fines last year after pleading no contest to one count of owning or training an animal for fighting, according to a newspaper report. Cockfighting is illegal in the USA and attending or organising a cockfight, or training an animal to participate in one, are misdemeanours under California law. The birds have knives attached to their legs for fighting, and Ochea was stabbed by one of the cockerels and bled to death – a finding apparently supported by the evidence.While there are other examples of similar deaths, this is supported by an autopsy and police reports.
4738Most sophisticated cyber weapon’s first nuclear strikeStuxnetBelarus01 June 2010In June 2010, a new computer software “worm” called Stuxnet, described as the most sophisticated cyber weapon ever made, was publicly identified by a security company in Belarus. A German industrial company subsequently confirmed that a number of its control systems technologies that are used in the power industry and which control valves, pipelines and other industrial equipment in different facilities around the world had been affected by the worm. Stuxnet targets software called WinCC, which runs on Microsoft Windows, in very specific industrial equipment and only attacks when it finds the right match. Such systems are used in the Iranian nuclear facilities at Bushehr and Natanz, Iran, and the Iranian government subsequently confirmed that computers there had been infected. Inspectors from the Atomic Energy Authority also found that a significant number of Iran’s centrifuges - used in the uranium enrichment process – were idle. Experts say that the worm is too sophisticated to have been the work of ordinary hackers or criminals – nor would they have had the significant time and funding required. Hence it is regarded as a cyber attack by an as yet undeclared state or states against another’s nuclear facilities, and at least one country has changed its estimate of the nuclear threat level from Iran from “imminent” to 2015.
