  • Miracle in Tonga (USPHS, 1965)

    This film tells the story of a group of doctors who went to the South Pacific islands of Tonga to immunize people against smallpox, using an experimental vaccination device. The narrator, one of the doctors, gives a brief history of Tonga, explaining that the small population is peaceful, isolated, and has no history of smallpox. He then explains the new jet injection gun, operated by foot pedal, which is much cheaper and more efficient than standard vaccination methods. Doctors first vaccinate the royal family which sets an example for the rest of the population, who willingly accept the vaccinations and are pleasantly surprised by the relatively painless process. After vaccinating everyone on the main island, the doctors take fishing boats out to the smaller surrounding islands to vaccin...

Earth's volcanoes occur because the planet's crust is broken into 17 major, rigid tectonic plates that float on a hotter, softer layer in the Earth's mantle. Therefore, on Earth, volcanoes are generally found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging. For example, a mid-oceanic ridge, such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, has volcanoes caused by divergent tectonic plates pulling apart; the Pacific Ring of Fire has volcanoes caused by convergent tectonic plates coming together. Volcanoes can also form where there is stretching and thinning of the crust's interior plates, e.g., in the East African Rift and the Wells Gray-Clearwater volcanic field and Rio Grande Rift in North America. This type of volcanism falls under the umbrella of "plate hypothesis" volcanism. Volcanism away from plate boundaries has also been explained as mantle plumes. These so-called "hotspots", for example Hawaii, are postulated to arise from upwelling diapirs with magma from the core–mantle boundary, 3,000 km deep in the Earth. Volcanoes are usually not created where two tectonic plates slide past one another. Erupting volcanoes can pose many hazards, not only in the immediate vicinity of the eruption. One such hazard is that volcanic ash can be a threat to aircraft, in particular those with jet engines where ash particles can be melted by the high operating temperature; the melted particles then adhere to the turbine blades and alter their shape, disrupting the operation of the turbine. Large eruptions can affect temperature as ash and droplets of sulfuric acid obscure the sun and cool the Earth's lower atmosphere (or troposphere); however, they also absorb heat radiated up from the Earth, thereby warming the upper atmosphere (or stratosphere). Historically, so-called volcanic winters have caused catastrophic famines. At the mid-oceanic ridges, two tectonic plates diverge from one another as new oceanic crust is formed by the cooling and solidifying of hot molten rock. Because the crust is very thin at these ridges due to the pull of the tectonic plates, the release of pressure leads to adiabatic expansion and the partial melting of the mantle, causing volcanism and creating new oceanic crust. Most divergent plate boundaries are at the bottom of the oceans; therefore, most volcanic activity is submarine, forming new seafloor. Black smokers (also known as deep sea vents) are an example of this kind of volcanic activity. Where the mid-oceanic ridge is above sea-level, volcanic islands are formed, for example, Iceland. Subduction zones are places where two plates, usually an oceanic plate and a continental plate, collide. In this case, the oceanic plate subducts, or submerges under the continental plate forming a deep ocean trench just offshore. In a process called flux melting, water released from the subducting plate lowers the melting temperature of the overlying mantle wedge, creating magma. This magma tends to be very viscous due to its high silica content, so often does not reach the surface and cools at depth. When it does reach the surface, a volcano is formed. Typical examples of this kind of volcano are Mount Etna and the volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volcano

Meet the 25-year-old tech millionaire who sold everything to travel the world with his wife and two young children... jealous yet? Millionaire Garrett Gee, wife, Jessica, and two children, Dorothy and Manilla, have been travelling for nine months Destination highlights for the family have included visits to Tonga, Fiji, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand The adventure has also had its downsides such as when Dorothy needed stitches and Garrett caught the Zika virus Garrett sold his mobile scanning app QR to Snapchat last year for $54million and then decided to head off on travels A beautiful young family has turned the internet green with envy after posting to-die-for photos of their jet-setting adventures. Millionaire Garrett Gee, 25, his wife, Jessica, 29, and their two children, Dorothy, three, and Manilla, one, have been travelling the world for nine months. The picture perfect Utah family have ticked much of the Pacific Ocean off their bucket list and completed a number of jaw-dropping activities along the way, such as swimming with sperm whales and watching leatherback turtles lay eggs. Pit stops for 'The Bucket List Family' as they are known on Instagram and YouTube, where they have 93,000 followers, have included Tonga, Fiji, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and many more. After Garrett sold mobile scanning app QR to Snapchat last year for $54million (£37million), the family sold most of their possessions and packed the rest into two backpacks. The couple from Utah, USA, banked their millions and have been living off the $45,000 they made from the sale of their belongings, since their departure in 2015. Originally they set off for five months, but nine months later they have no plans of returning. Jessica said: 'We have always loved to travel but before this, our longest trip with the children was one week. 'When my husband and I would travel before we had children we could be as adventurous or risky and frugal as we wanted. 'We could sleep on a couch, or save money by staying in a sketchy part of town. 'But travelling with our children has changed things a lot. 'At first we tried travelling with a nanny but that was too expensive for us so now we just find local nanny help whenever we need. Also, we no longer sleep on couches. 'Now, we spend the extra money to make sure we're staying at nice places in safe areas. 'However, it's all totally worth it every time we arrive to a new country and explore a new place together as a family. 'Our kids make travelling more enjoyable and more rewarding and we're grateful for these memories we're gathering together. 'We really loved it even more so than we thought we would and the children were doing great so we decided to keep going. 'Now, we've been going over nine months with no end in sight.' However, Jessica did admit travelling with kids has its own health hazards. She added: 'The most stressful times are travel days. Our kids do really well on flights and long journeys but travel days are just difficult. 'Our travels have been filled with many highs but also some lows. It was a scary day in Thailand when our little girl Dorothy slipped in the shower and cut her chin. 'We had to rush her to the hospital for stitches. It was scary but the doctor and nurses in Thailand took great care of us and everything worked out well.' Garrett also caught the Zika virus from a mosquito in Dominica, but Jessica insists the good times have far outnumbered the bad. She said: 'There have been major highlights like the time Garrett touched the tail of a mother humpback whale while swimming in the waters of Tonga. 'Or the 10 days we spent living on a sailboat in beautiful Bora Bora. We just left Dominica where we swam with sperm whales and watched great leather back turtles lay their eggs.' The couple, who married in 2009, have extended an open invitation to friends and family to join them along the trip. Jessica added: 'We plan a lot of our travels and activities around lessons we hope for our children to learn. 'Travelling to different cultures all around the world is a wonderful way to develop kind hearts, a love for the planet, and open minds towards all people from all different backgrounds. 'There have also been countless moments of simple love and goodness. Times like late night hot tub sessions as a family just chatting and laughing. 'Perhaps above everything, the greatest blessing of these travels has been the unique amount of quality time we're spending together as a family.'
