THAT’S NO JIVE
Marble Mogul — Eight year old Harli Jordean of London, England has started an incredibly popular business selling marbles. He started the company two years ago after losing his marbles to the big kids at school. Harli turned to the internet for replacements, but could not find what he was looking for, so he got the idea to start Marble King. His store features thousands of marbles and other products ranging in price from one pence (1.6 cents CAD) to £599 ($972 CAD). Balancing work with school and being a kid has taken some help. He gets so many orders he can’t keep up on his own. His mom and two older brothers work for Harli, who insists he has even bigger plans. “My dream is to have a chain of stores...it will be one of the biggest toy stores in the world but selling all sorts of marbles.” While there are child labour laws in England, there are apparently no child ownership laws being violated. Russian Visitors? — A woman in the western Russian city of Petrozavodsk claims she had physical evidence of an interstellar visitor to Earth. Marta Yegorovnam says she kept an alien body in her freezer for two years before it was taken by men from the Karelian Research Centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences. She says she recovered the alien body from the flaming wreckage of a UFO crash site in 2009. Photos she took before the men allegedly confiscated the ‘creature’ show an object about 2 feet long, with what could be a huge head, two bulbous eyes and large mouth. It’s hard to tell if it’s really an alien body or a rotten fish with a stick poking out of it, but it’s certainly got the attention of paranormal expert Michael Cohen. “Russia is a hotbed of UFO activity and possible alien craft have been tracked by both military and civilian agencies. In all likelihood most alien beings would look strange to us, much like this specimen.” Beer Can Boom Box – Sound artist Yuri Suzuki has unveiled
his latest project - a massive speaker system made out of recycled beer cans. He and fellow designer Matthew Kneebone came up with the idea as part of a campaign for Jamaican brewer Red Stripe. Suzuki and Kneebone assembled a team of people to turn five thousand beer cans into a speaker which is a 2.5 meter (8 feet) cube. They taped the cans together in rows and attached them to a wooden frame before hooking the whole thing up to an amp and speaker system. Kneebone says the project was inspired by Jamaica’s Do It Yourself approach to many things. “Jamaican musical culture has been defined by finding a new purpose for an object. Take steel drums - they were oil drums left behind by US forces after the war. In our case, the beer cans were also left behind for us to find a musical purpose.” Even the microphone is capped with a beer can.
