Tshabalala promised to provide evidence that she did have the degree.

  • 'We've found another Earth'

Known as Kepler 452b, the planet was detected by the agency's Kepler Space Telescope, which has hunted for worlds like ours since 2009. "Kepler 452b is orbiting a close cousin of our sun, but one that is 1.5 billion years older," it said. If the planet is rocky, and the scientists believe that it has a better than even chance of being just that, then it could be in the midst of a fearful scenario, as the heat from its dying star evaporates Kepler 452b's lakes and oceans.

  • Nigeria: 'Infrasonic Weapon' Caused TB Joshua Church Collapse - Academic

Iguniwei's paper, titled "Elimination of the Structural Failure and the Placement of Chemical Explosives Options, for the Infrasonic Weapon Option as the Cause of the Synagogue (Scoan) Building Collapse" was published in the International Journal of Scientific Engineering and Research in its July 7 edition.
