• 50Fotos -- Chuuk, Micronesia

    50Fotos of Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia. These photos are from my brief trip to Chuuk in July 2006, but I lived there with my wife from 1974-76 as a Peace Corps Volunteer and also conducted master's thesis research there in 1979. In those days, the islands were known as Truk, and were part of the U.S, Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. These photos are of the main lagoon island of Weno (Moen), and of my former home island of Tonowas (Dublon). Some of the people pictured I've known for more than 35 years. The Chuukese song "Romonum I" was recorded in the islands by the late David Fanshawe. See the other 50Fotos slideshows.

    http://www.thecenterforlifeexpression.com Chuuk Lagoon, formerly known as Truk Lagoon, is a sheltered body of water in the central Pacific. North of Papua New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia. During World War II, Truk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theater. Operation Hailstone, executed by the United States in 1944,[6] culminated in one of the most important naval airstrikes of the war at Truk. Twelve Japanese warships, thirty-two merchant ships and 249 aircraft were destroyed, although the larger warships had moved to Palau a week earlier. In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television d...

The archipelago, located east of Papa New Guinea in Oceania, consists of a thousand islands inhabited by over half a million Melanesian people. They have the darkest skin in the world outside of Africa, but strangely, about one-fourth of the inhabitants sport blond afros. This rare Melanesian characteristic has baffled scientists and genetic experts for years.

    Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Sat 27 Nov 2010 On our last day in Yap, we start with a driving tour around Yap. Each village is responsible for the maintenance of public spaces, rsulting in beautifully manicured roadside verges. The island is laced with a series of paths through the jungle connecting the important local civic centers of each town, centuries old. Most of the stone money banks are along these traditional paths. We get guided down one such path to Kadai Village, a sort of Yapese "living village" for tourists to see traditional crafts and dance performances. Even though the Yap reefs have been devastated by the two recent typhoons, Yap above water remains the gem that we remember from previous visits.

In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television documentary about the lagoon and its ghostly remains, the place became a scuba diving paradise, drawing wreck diving enthusiasts from around the world to see its numerous, virtually intact sunken ships. The shipwrecks and remains are sometimes referred to as the "Ghost Fleet of Truk Lagoon". Scattered mainly around the Dublon, Eten, Fefan and Uman islands within the Truk group, a number of the shipwrecks lie in crystal clear waters less than fifteen meters below the surface. In waters devoid of normal ocean currents, divers can easily swim across decks littered with gas masks and depth charges and below deck can be found numerous human remains. In the massive ships' holds are row upon row of fighter aircraft, tanks, bulldozers, railroad cars, motorcycles, torpedoes, mines, bombs, boxes of munitions, radios, plus thousands of other weapons, spare parts, and other artifacts. Of special interest is the wreck of the submarine I-169 Shinohara which was lost when diving to avoid the bombing. The sub had been part of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) are Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk (formerly Truk) and Yap, stretching over a vast expanse of Pacific Ocean just north of the equator. Together, the states comprise around 607 islands (a combined land area of approximately 702 km2 that cover a longitudinal distance of almost 2,700 km just north of the equator. 2. During World War II, Chuuk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theatre. In 1944 it was destroyed by US bombers, in an attack that lasted 3 days, sinking 12 warships and 32 merchant ships. The consequences of the attack made Chuuk lagoon the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. 3. No visit in Yap is complete until you have a chance to see the Stone Money Banks located throughout the island. Massive pieces of Stone Money line a stone pathway in the villages displaying the wealth of the village. Here, size does matter as each piece has a value based on where it came from and how it was made. 4. Every year since 1952, the United States Air force has carried out ‘Operation Christmas Drop’ to give gifts to the people of the remote Kapingamarangi Atoll. The gifts are donated by the people of Guam. As well as useful supplies like fishing nets and tools, the parcels also contain toys and school supplies for the children of Kapingamarangi. The boxes are dropped from a large cargo plane, on parachutes, and can weigh anything up to 180 kg each. 5. Nan Madol is an ancient ruined city built on man-made islets. It is a ceremonial compound, built on a network of man-made structures just offshore, on the eastern side of Pohnpei. It was a scene of human activity as early as the first or second century AD. By the 8th or 9th century, islet construction had started. 6. The Rumung people, living in the far north, are fearfully conservative. The island of Rumung has been forbidden to all foreigners since the 17th century. The absolute preservation of culture and tradition was paramount to the community of Rumung. 7. For such a small and isolated country, it had a lot of contacts with the western world. Since the 19th century, it was ruled by Spain, Germany, Japan and the US. Their former capital city, Kolonia, was built by the Spanish, but after independence the Micronesians built their own, new capital: Palikir.

Read More: http://www.GistOnThis.com About a quarter of the Melanesian population in the Solomon Islands archipelago has an extremely unusual trait -- dark skin with blond hair. The archipelago, located east of Papa New Guinea in Oceania, consists of a thousand islands inhabited by over half a million Melanesian people. They have the darkest skin in the world outside of Africa, but strangely, about one-fourth of the inhabitants sport blond afros. This rare Melanesian characteristic has baffled scientists and genetic experts for years. Up until now, they have attributed the trait to inheritance -- from the Europeans, especially the British, German and Australians, who have been associated with the island for hundreds of years. Several of the islands were under German jurisdiction in the 19th century. In 1893, the UK took southern Solomon Islands under their wing, declaring the region a protectorate. The rest of the islands were added to the protectorate at a later stage. And in the early 20th century, Australian and British companies set up coconut plantations on many of the islands. So it isn't entirely unbelievable that the dark-skinned Melanesians got their blond hair from the growing influx of 'outsiders'. The locals, however, prefer not to go by that theory. They have been insisting for years that their blond hair is a result of a diet rich in fish and constant exposure to the sun. As it turns out, both theories are quite far from the truth. According to a recent investigation, random mutation might actually be the answer to the mystery of the Melanesian blonds. Sean Myles, the author of the study and geneticist at Nova Scotia Agricultural College, pointed out that there is almost no variation in the shades of blond hair. This suggests that the hair color is governed by genes. "It looked pretty obvious to me that it was a real binary trait," he said. "You either had blond hair or you didn't." To locate this underlying blueprint in the Melanesian genetic pool, Myles and his colleagues collected saliva and hair samples from over 1,200 Solomon Islanders. From these samples, they compared the genetic makeup of 42 dark-haired and 43 blond islanders. What the scientists discovered was pretty phenomenal -- the two groups possessed very different versions of a crucial gene, TYRP1, which coded for a protein involved in pigmentation. Just switching one letter of the genetic code (a 'T' instead of a 'C'), marked the difference between dark hair and blond hair. Only one amino acid in the protein is different (arginine replaced by cysteine). So 25 percent of the Solomon islanders carry two copies of the mutant recessive gene. That means the blonds could have inherited their hair color from both parents. "It's a great example of convergent evolution, where the same outcome is brought about by completely different means," said Myles. Jonathan Friedlaender, an anthropologist at Philadelphia's Temple University, explained that the mutation probably arose by chance in one individual. It appears to have gained in frequency because the original population of the island was pretty small. Myles added: "If you can find a gene for blond hair that exists in Melanesia and nowhere else, then there's no reason why those sorts of genes don't exist all over the world in underrepresented populations, and affect not only hair pigmentation, but also disease-related traits." The study also traced the origins of the Melanesian people in an effort to understand the mutant gene. They discovered that while all humans outside of Africa have genes passed down from the Neanderthals, Melanesians are the only known humans with a different prehistoric ancestry. They are believed to have evolved from an interbreeding of the Denisova hominin, Neanderthal man's distant cousin. So the islanders have slightly different genes, which gives them their unique blond hair.

Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Sat 27 Nov 2010 On our last day in Yap, we start with a driving tour around Yap. Each village is responsible for the maintenance of public spaces, rsulting in beautifully manicured roadside verges. The island is laced with a series of paths through the jungle connecting the important local civic centers of each town, centuries old. Most of the stone money banks are along these traditional paths. We get guided down one such path to Kadai Village, a sort of Yapese "living village" for tourists to see traditional crafts and dance performances. Even though the Yap reefs have been devastated by the two recent typhoons, Yap above water remains the gem that we remember from previous visits.

From sunken treasures, to deep sea artifacts, these are 10 Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. New Zealand Sunken Treasure Divers who were cleaning a local harbor were rewarded with an amazing discovery of 868 gold coins! Finders Keepers! The harbor of Wellington has been quite messy lately and many glass bottles, and plastic materials were being removed but they never expected anything like this! They appear to be of high value but no one could figure out exactly why they were thrown away into the harbor. The crew couldn’t tell exactly where they were from and the coins origins are still somewhat of a mystery. After being down there for a long period of time, it’s believed the markings on them eroded. So we guess they won’t be giving them back to the original owner! 4. Vanuatu Skull Trying to piece together the history of pacific islands can be difficult at times due to the lack of stone structures. Besides the Tongan gate and Easter Island, there really isn’t a ton of evidence on their ancient ancestors. Things that can survive the test of time, are skeletons. This 3,000 year old skull you see in this photo, was separated from the body and placed in an ancient pot. This comes from the Lapita culture who lived on the island of Vanuatu. This civilization inhabited many of the south pacific islands like Samoa, Tonga and all the way to eastern coast of Papua New Guinea Extensive scientific research was done and it’s believed that the Lapita culture are originally descendants from the island of Taiwan. These were found at the bottom of a Cemetery on Efate Island. This discovery also leads archaeologists to conclude that the Lapita were the first settlers of these micro islands 3. Jungle Debris After all the intense fighting that took place in the South Pacific during world war two, there’s bound to be plenty of scraps from all kinds of military vehicles. People are still making discoveries of all the wreckage that took place between 1941-1945. Here in this photo we see an Imperial Japanese Fighter plane that was shot down during the Battle of Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands. Children on the islands still play at the beaches, right next the debris of a Japanese Imperial Navy transport vessel. The islands could be scared for quite some time, even 70 years later. With advancements in drones and aerial technology, they’re able to locate more wreckage than ever before, like this Sherman tank left in the shallow waters of the Northern Mariana Islands. 2. Radiation on Bikini Atoll Once the USA had captured much land in the South Pacific during world war II from the Japanese, they wanted to continue testing the weapons that won them the war to the absolute limit, and they would do so on their new territory. Bikini Atoll was where the US tested their most devastating weapons like the hydrogen bomb. Castle Bravo was the codename for the dry fuel hydrogen bomb that was detonated and the 2nd most power device ever detonated only behind russia’s tsar bomba. Bikini atoll was the site for 23 nuclear detonations. Researchers from Columbia University in the US recently discovered that the islands are still radioactive and no knows for sure when they’ll be safe to live here. 1. Chuuk Lagoon In 1944, there were more than 60 Japanese warships and 200 aircraft that met their watery grave in chuuk lagoon in the South Pacific, located west of Micronesia where an intense battle took place. This was one of Japan’s strategic bases that was wiped out by allied forces. On land, this place looks like a tropical paradise, but below the surface of the water lies the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. Due to its history and the spooky remains, it’s become a popular scuba diving location and left nearly untouched due to fear of bombs going off. It’s been rediscovered in recent years and explorers have had the opportunity to see the devastation. Here in this photo were see a tank covered in barnacles at the bottom of the lagoon. This photo here displays a car that was inside a Japanese ship that sank. Some scuba divers will even come across skulls.

Explores the astonishing array of megalithic ruins found in the South Pacific, including the Latte Stones of the Marianas, the menhirs of Paulau, the megalithic canal city on Kosrae Island, and the ever-mysterious Nan Madol on Pohnpei Island. Researches Nan Madol to discover that it contains over 250 million tons of basalt columns strewn, partially submerged, over an 11 square mile area of artificial islands. Strange underwater buildings of this incredible city are found at 80 feet. Local legends insist the huge volcanic rocks, weighing up to 50 tons each, were levitated into place by mysterious island ancestors. Could Nan Madol and other megalithic remains in the Pacific have been built by the ancient Egyptians. A great theory, and this video provides a great deal of evidence in the form of photos, maps, and well referenced facts. Highly recommended for those who study the megalith builders of thousands of years ago.

Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Fri 26 Nov 2010 Our last day of Micronesian diving. We go to the head of Mil Channel (i.e. Yap Corner) hoping to see Mantas coming or going to the cleaning station, but in case we do not, Yap Corner has its own charm. No Mantas, but spectacular terrain. We go back to Slow & Easy because of the great dive there perviously and this time spend 90 minutes with a pair of mating Octopuses (Octopi or Octopodes - http://www.boingboing.net/2011/01/04/great-moments-in-ped.htm]). We end the trip with a dusk dive on Rainbow reef and watch the magnificent Mandarin Fish do its daily mating ritual.
