In 2001 the 15 Year old USA high school junior Michael Nyberg invented the "larvasonic" he calles an "accoustic larvicide system" - "a West Nile Virus killer". His invention could battle West Niles virus by killing larvae using sound frequencies. The device works by converting power from a rechargeable battery into sound energy, which is transmitted through an antenna into water. The emitted frequency causes the mosquito larva's air bladder to rupture surrounding tissue. The devices, which would cost from about $4'000 for a small handheld version to $50'000 for the sewage-treatment variety, would sell for a fraction of the cost of chemical treatments. Michael and his father Herbert Nyberg started a company called New Mountain Innovations to market the "Larvasonic".

Dr David Livingstone
It was the mighty Zambezi which led missionary Dr. David Livingstone on his greatest and final adventure. In search of a means to access the interior, Livingstone tagged the Zambezi "God's highway" to the Indian Ocean and set off down the river, discovering the great cataract native Africans called Mosi-o-Tunya, "the smoke that thunders." Livingstone christened the great waterfall Victoria Falls after his queen. Today, the great chasm has lost none of it's allure, still considered one of the great natural wonders of the world.

Prof. Drs. Ruud Lubbers
Former United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees:
Prof. Drs. Rudolphus (Ruud) Franciscus Marie Lubbers (born 7 May 1939 in Rotterdam) visited the
Canisius College in Nijmegen and studied Economics at the Netherlands School of Economics
(the predecessor of the University of Rotterdam). As suggested by the title of his 1962 thesis –
"The influence of differing productivity trends in various countries on the current account of the
balance of payments" – his main interest was in monetary affairs.
"Lucy Australopithecus Afarensis" is the Star of the National Museum of Addis Ababa. In 1974, a team of paleoanthropologists, under the direction of Donald Johanson, found this ancient species of australopithecine at the Hadar site in the Afar Desert region of Northern Ethiopia. Lucy, alias Dinknesh - literally "you are lovely" - is the first woman in Ethiopian history, indeed in the history of the world. It was a 40% complete skeleton of an adult female whom they named Lucy after the Beatles song, though her Ethiopian descendants prefer to call her Dinknesh. She was a dainty little person, only 3.5-4 feet tall with a slender body. She lived 3.2-3.18 million years ago. Johanson concluded that Lucy was from a different species than had been previously discovered. He classified her as an Australopithecus afarensis (named for the Afar region). Many other specimens of this species and later ones were found in Ethiopia since 1974, but none is as complete as Lucy.
