Watch These Flying Fish Make Spectacular Escapes From Their Predators

Marine life rely on sound to navigate, socialize, and find food and mates, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult for them to hear each other. Noise caused by human activity is now an inescapable threat to their lives.

In the video above from Vox, we hear some of the amazing sounds that underwater creatures make, and learn how they’re impacted by noise pollution.

From leisure boats to industrial seismic blasting, humans have created an extreme situation. It’s hard not to compare it to sound torture, now banned for being cruel and unusual punishment!

CSI Paris… 1904: Fascinating images from crime scenes that were the first of their kind used by famed French …

These are the remarkable images from crime scenes that were the first of their kind – used to crack cases in grisly murders at the turn of the 20th century.

The unsettling photographs taken in Paris and credited to famed detective Alphonse Bertillon detail graphic crime scenes of the past.

Some pictures show scenes of chaos, where you can clearly see a struggle has taken place and injuries to the victim. However, in others a figure lies in a perfectly neat room, adding to the mystery of the atrocity.

These crime scene photos from early 20th century France are both fascinating and macabre in equal measure, and the work of pioneering French murder detective Alphonse Bertillon. Pictured is the murder scene of Madame Veuve Bol, in Paris, and dated 1904. The caption reads: 'Inspection on a horizontal plane'

The wheels of justice aren’t known for moving quickly. When civil and criminal cases go to trial, photos and oral explanations only go so far in helping to build a case.  To help jurors make informed decisions, law firms such as Lamber Goodnow are beginning to use virtual reality (VR) technology in the courtrooms to help add context to complex personal injury cases.

“As a lawyer, one of the biggest challenges faced in a case is showing the decision makers or jury what actually happened at a crime scene or at the precise moment of impact during a catastrophic injury,” notes personal injury lawyer Marc Lamber. “In the old days, I’d use demonstrative exhibits, visual aids, and witness statements in an attempt to ‘transport a jury to an accident scene.’ With virtual reality, not only can I transport jurors to the accident scene, I can put them in
