Mum-of-one fights for life after stabbing attack in her home
A woman was fighting for her life last night after a violent assault at her Co Wicklow home. The woman was discovered unconscious and covered in blood on her sitting room floor at 4.25am yesterday by a neighbour who was woken by noise coming from the flat in Arklow.

After Egypt and China, Indonesia could now also be emblematic of one of the most enigmatic monuments in the world: the pyramid. One of them has just been discovered under a hill on the Asian archipelago by specialists. In addition, it seems to be the oldest ever unearthed. This is what scientists have just revealed at a conference held as part of the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU).
For several years, researchers devoted themselves to the study of a ‘hill’ culminating at an altitude of almost 3000 feet, about 30 miles southwest of the city of Cianjur: Gunung Padang. The site is surmounted by a remarkable megalithic site, the largest in Southeast Asia. It has been known to the Western world since it was discovered by Dutch settlers in the early 20th century.
Number of homes destroyed as bushfire burns in Blue Mountains
The New South Wales Rural Fire Service has confirmed a number of homes have been lost after a crucial back burning operation got out of control in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. This photo taken on December 7, 2019 shows the remains of a property seen after a bushfire at the Mangrove Dam, some 90-110 kilometres north of Sydney. - Bushfires are common in the country but scientists say this year's season has come earlier and with more intensity due to a prolonged drought and climatic conditions fuelled by global warming.
Indonesian scientists have recently suggest that World's oldest pyramid is hidden in plain sight for thousands of years buried inside a mountain in Indonesia . If there was a pyramid underneath the mountain's rocky layers, it was most likely used as a religious temple.
The Great Pyramid of Giza has towered over Egypt for more than 4,500 years. Built during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu, the monument was a testament to the ruler’s architectural prowess and is thought to have been a home for his mummified remains.
But the multitude of stones that surround the top of the mound are, according to the revelations of scientists, only the tip of the iceberg. ‘The structures are not only superficial but rooted deeper,’ say the Indonesian researchers.
A much larger structure than expected
‘Our work shows that the structure does not only cover the top of the hill but also covers the slopes, which is [thus] an approximate area of at least 15 hectares,’ the specialists continue.

To advance such claims, the team relies on solid scientific evidence. The researchers have implemented a combination of advanced geophysical methods, such as ground-penetrating radar, or seismic tomography, to probe the bowels of the hill. Drilling and soil analysis also allowed them to clarify their interpretations.

WASHINGTON — An enormous pyramid -like structure in Indonesia that may represent the remains of an ancient temple hid underground for thousands of years. But the sloping " hill " underneath isn't part of the natural, rocky landscape; it was crafted by human hands, scientists discovered .
A 100-foot long void was discovered in Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza, scientists from the ScanPyramids project announced Thursday. They believe the hidden chamber hasn’t been entered since the pyramid was built 4,500 years ago.
‘What was once considered a simple surface construction actually goes quite deep, and it's a huge structure,’ said Andang Bachtiar, independent geologist and drilling operations manager.
A ‘huge structure’ built over the course of history, due to the superposition of countless layers of stone. A few feet below the surface hides a set of mineral columns. At a still lower level, there are a series of cavities and chambers, about 50 feet deep, that the geophysicists detected.
A not-so-natural form
But despite this accumulation of human-made achievements, it is also the form of the whole that pushed the scientists to this audacious interpretation. According to them, the lengthening of the structure, added to the half-moon shape of its front part, are several signs of the religious functions of the building. ‘This is a temple with no equivalent [anywhere in the world],’ geophysicist Danny Hilman Natawidjaja told Live Science.

Here, scattered across a vast hilltop in the West Java province of Indonesia , lay the remnants of a massive complex of rocky structures and monuments In controversial new research presented at the AGU 2018 Fall Meeting in Washington, DC last week, a team of Indonesian scientists presented
Even if they remain controversial within the scientific community, these interpretations could, if they are confirmed, reveal one of the oldest pyramids in the world. In fact, carbon-14 dating makes it possible to locate the origins of the third stratum of the building, which is the deepest, at between 9,500 and 28,000 years old.
This is a fairly wide range, but which confirms, in any case, the words already issued in 2013 by Danny Hilman Natawidjaja. ‘People think that prehistory was a primitive [period], but this monument proves that this is false.’ Whether they are Egyptian, Chinese or Indonesian, the pyramids have definitely not finished upsetting our historical certainties.
