The discovery was announced late Monday in a peer-reviewed paper released early by the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The laser scanning revealed a previously undocumented formal urban planned landscape integrating the 1,200-year-old temples.
The airborne lasers produced a detailed map of a vast cityscape, including highways and previously undiscovered temples, hidden beneath dense vegetation atop Phnom Kulen mountain in Siem Reap province. It was the lost city of Mahendraparvata.
Sarah Tatterson, 37, of West Seattle, Wash., is an accomplished runner, who has completed a dozen half-marathons in her lifetime. So earlier this month when she noticed a stranger walking up her driveway, entering her garage and making a quick exit with her husband's bicycle, her running instincts immediately kicked in.Pa. teen with metal detector finds 1962 class ring
"I was in my living room. I had just changed into my running clothes and was folding a load of laundry before I headed out," Tatterson told GoodMorningAmerica.com. "I happened to catch out of the corner of my eye a man walking into my detached garage. I ran out there right away expecting that someone was trying steal something. As he emerged from the garage with my husband's bike, I ordered him to put it down and he chose not to."
The man, whom Tatterson describes as in his late 40s or early 50s, looked her straight in the eye and still continued to take off with the bike, which only angered her even more.
A Pennsylvania teenager with a metal detector has stumbled across a 1962 high school class ring and returned it to its owner.
The Centre Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/... ) 19-year-old Robert Nese says he was searching the ground behind Lemont Elementary School when he made the discovery recently. He found the gold State College Area High School ring buried 8 inches below the grass, with the initials DLT inside the band.
He tracked down a yearbook and found two people with matching initials. On his second try, he found that Donna Tressler had lost the ring playing softball 52 years ago.
She says she had searched the grounds for the ring for years and is floored by Nese's honesty and hard work at finding her.
It's better to be lucky than good. Just ask Cary Collings: He recently found himself with a high-scoring scratch-off ticket, and then, when he bought another, he had one worth even more—all in the same 24-hour period.
According to the Facebook page for Washington's Lottery, Collings' day started off on the right note when he won the $55,555 prize on a scratch-off ticket. Not a bad day's work, but Collings wasn't finished. On his way to cash in his ticket, he stopped at a store to buy some more. One of them ended up being worth $200,000.
Q13Fox.com reported that Collings, who lives in Puyallup, Wash., plans to use some of his winnings to pay off debts. He said he is undecided on what to do with the rest of his windfall but has no plans to quit his job.
