Old pictures are being discovered and acquired. 

Happening in the World:  Researchers from Yamagata University, in Japan, discovered more than 140 ancient pictures, known as geoglyphs, in the sands of a Peruvian coastal plain. The geoglyphs, which “resemble living things and other objects” are believed to date back to as early as 100 BC and were discovered through the use of high-resolution 3D data. (CNN)

A combination of two viruses which include symptoms of fever and vomiting is “spreading quickly across the schools.”The over 40 schools and all of their all after-school activities will remain closed until after Thanksgiving break.
