Scientists have stumbled across a huge group of previously unknown Adélie penguins on the most northerly point of the Antarctic Peninsula.
Numbering more than 1.5 million birds, they were first noticed when great patches of their poo, or guano, showed up in pictures taken from space.
The animals are crammed on to a rocky archipelago called the Danger Islands.
The researchers, who detail the discovery in the journal Scientific Reports, say it is a total surprise.
"It's a classic case of finding something where no-one really looked! The Danger Islands are hard to reach, so people didn't really try that hard," team-member Dr Tom Hart from Oxford University, UK, told BBC News.

"O Canada," reads the first line of anthem celebrating the vast country ranking second in the world on the basis of landmass. It continues, "our home and native land. True patriot love in all our sons command." Or at least it did, until this Wednesday, when that second line was officaly altered to read: "in all of us command."
The two-word change took over thirty years.

Millions of people use Google search every day for a variety of reasons. Students use it for school, business people use it for research, and millions more use it for entertainment. Did you know that you may not be using Google search to its full potential? Here are 20 tips and tricks to maximize your search efficiency.

Using these tabs, you can help define what kind of search you need to do. If you need images, use the Image tab. If you are looking for a recent news article, use the News tab. It’s rudimentary and most people use the tabs already. If you are not, then it’s highly recommended to get associated with them. They can cut search times dramatically if utilized properly.

If you’re new to cryptocurrency, your first question is probably “what is Bitcoin?”. The short answer is that Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency or digital asset made secure by cryptography. Bitcoin and most (but not all) other cryptocurrencies use blockchain technology.
This article will answer the common questions that newcomers have when first learning about Bitcoin. How do blockchains work? What makes Bitcoin valuable? What is decentralization? What is mining? How do you buy Bitcoin? How do you safely store it? How do you send or receive Bitcoin from somebody else?
But we won’t just stop there. Once you get the basics down, we’ll also explain how hard forks work, like the one that created Bitcoin Cash. Finally, we’ll wrap up with a look towards the future of Bitcoin and how the network can potentially scale up to handle a transaction volume that’s orders of magnitude larger than it does today.
There may be blockchain-related terms in this article that you are unfamiliar with. If you come across some, don’t worry about understanding immediately. Keep reading and see if the context helps clear things up. If you want to make sure you understand everything more thoroughly, you can also refer our guides to essential blockchain and cryptocurrency terms.

Robots are on Twitter, and people pay to have them as followers. That begs the question: What is the worth of a real, live human Twitter follower?
First, the background on fake accounts. A recent New York Times investigation delved into how companies create and sell fabricated Twitter accounts, or bots. These bots are used to do things like automatically retweet posts and inflate people’s follower count.
You don’t have to buy bots to get them as followers. Some are programmed to follow accounts, hoping to lure real people to follow them back. That makes the bot look more believable.

In a dressing room at Pitt Meadows Arena, after a recent hockey game in which he scored a goal and his “old-timers” team won, Rob MacDonald had a cardiac arrest and died.
He was revived by a winger on the opposing team, one he had actually lined up against during the game. His saviour, Bruce Moffat, was an off-duty paramedic who administered chest compressions for about a dozen minutes, all of it in just his underwear since he was summoned for the emergency while taking a post-game shower shortly before midnight.
More than 7,100 people across B.C. will have out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests this year, if it is anything like the last. Only 25 per cent get bystander CPR and even then, only 10 per cent survive. If not for Moffat, MacDonald would be among the 90 per cent who don’t make it. His three children would be fatherless and his wife would be a widow, as MacDonald, a mortgage broker, points out.
