  • Only survivor of an Icelandic shipping disaster

    1:23:30

    Eiríkur Ingi describes the last moments before his ship, Hallgrímur, sank with his crew. Televised on RÚV in February 2012. Interview has English subtitles.


    Eiríkur Ingi Jóhannsson, skipverji á togaranum Hallgrími sem fórst undan Noregsströndum í síðustu viku, segist hafa samið við sjálfan sig um að gefast ekki upp þegar hann var orðinn einn út á rúmsjó og engin hjálp í nánd

    Eiríkur Ingi lýsti sjóferðinni, sjóslysinu og björguninni í Kastljósi í kvöld. Þrír félagar hans fórust, þeir: Gísli Garðarsson, Einar G. Gunnarsson og Magnús Þórarinn Daníelsson. Hann var í flotgalla á reki í stórsjó í klukkutímum saman.

    „Maður bara vonar, maður verður að vera bjartsýnn og þetta snýst allt um það að ég verð að halda mér kátum. Og alltaf þegar ég fer að hugsa út í slysið þarna á meðan þetta er að gerast, ég fer alltaf að hugsa um slysið og hugsa út í strákana, þá fer maður að vera þungur, segir Eiríkur og bætir við: „Ég geri bara samkomulag við sjálfan mig. Ég ætla að tolla, halda mér gangandi í tíu tíma.

    Hann sá björgunarþyrluna löngu áður hún varð hans vör. Hann kallaði á mennina í þyrlunni, þótt hann vissi að þeir heyrðu ekki í honum: „Svo garga ég: Einar, Gísli, Maggi segið þeim að ég sé hér! Og ég held áfram að reka og ég bara syndi og syndi og syndi, segir Eiríkur.

    „Svo sé ég bara sigmanninn vera að koma hérna niður og hann lendir einhverja fimm, sex metra frá mér. Vindurinn er að koma hér og ég þarf að fara hér. Ég ætla ekkert að bíða eftir honum, ég syndi bara og beint í fangið á honum, segir Eiríkur. „Svo kemur allt í einu þessi svakalegi rykkur og ég er kominn upp. Og ég bara, þetta er að gerast, ég er að komast heim, segir hann.

    Eiríkur Ingi þakkar skipsfélögum sínum fyrir þann styrk sem hafi veitt honum til að komast í gegnum þetta.

  • You Wont believe What People Found on These Beaches

    14:01

    What could be cooler than going to the beach on a hot day? The water, The sun, the girls........
    No, the coolest thing to do is to go to the beach right after a storm! That’s when you can find the most incredible things on the shore. For example a car. Or this treasure worth $600,000??
    Then how about a huge $1 billion oil platform! Believe me, that’s not even the strangest thing that’s been found on a beach.

  • Titanic Survivor Claims an Iceberg Didnt Destroy the Ship

    10:23

    Have you ever met a person who hasn’t ever heard the story of Titanic? Unlikely. Even if you ask a 10-year-old, they’ll tell you exactly what took down the gigantic ship. However, some survivors of the sinking legend would beg to differ. Here’s one of their stories, and it has nothing to do with an iceberg.

    Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs. He’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion. And if what he said was true, something must have caused that huge explosion...

    ???? Btw, guys, there is a cat hidden in this video. If you can spot our furry little guy, you're much more attentive than most people! Do you accept the challenge? ????

    SUMMARY:
    - Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs.
    - In 1912, Vaghinak published some books together with his father, a famous Armenian writer. His task was to take the books to America.
    - They went to bed rather late on April 14, just like on the other nights. Shortly after midnight, something that sounded like a big explosion woke everyone up.
    - None of the crew members wanted to say anything, but a few minutes later it was impossible to deny that the Titanic was going underwater.
    - Vaghinak put his passport and money in a little bag and tied it around his neck. The Titanic’s bow was already underwater by that time. A lot of people in this situation wouldn’t have dared to take it to the open water.
    - The water in the North Atlantic that night was just below freezing, at a scary 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-2 C). The young writer felt his arms and legs go numb, and he was understandably getting weaker and weaker every second.
    - Then, he bumped into something. It was a lifeboat! But it was so overcrowded they pushed the young man with a paddle when he tried to stick to the boat.
    - Vaghinak woke up alive on board another ship. That ship was the Carpathia, and it was en route to New York with lucky survivors on board.
    - 12 days later, a woman came into the room. She turned out to be the person who saved Vaghinak. Missis Astor told the sailors that the young man was her son, and she wouldn’t let them go without him since she’d already lost her husband on the Titanic.
    - Vaghinak lived a long and happy life and, as a great storyteller, he shared what happened to him many times. Interestingly, he’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion.
    - It could have been a fire, and quite a lot of people actually believe that theory, saying that coal was burning in the ship’s hull.
    - Another theory that explained the explosion claimed that there was a German U-boat involved in the sinking of Titanic.

  • Most INCREDIBLE Weather Proof Homes

    10:34

    You could live in the safest country or neighborhood in the world, but sometimes outer forces may require a little more than that. No matter if the world outside is crumbling due to extreme weather or any other event, here’s a few of the safest homes to be in when it rains, floods, storms, or for when you need a house to hide in while society rebuilds itself.

    6. The Mysterious Cabin in Iceland
    In an archipelago off the coast of Iceland, you’ll find this solitary house on the island of Elliðaey. You can barely see it in photos since the land around this little white house is an expansive green. The island itself has an interesting history, with 5 families inhabiting the area about 300 years ago. By the mid 20th century, most of the residents left, though this house you see was built in 1953 by the Elliðaey Hunting Association and was meant to be a hunting lodge. There was talk once that it belonged to Björk though that turned out to just be hearsay. If you need a place to runaway to should society collapse into itself, this zero population island may be the perfect place to hideout.

    5. The Tsunami House
    Architecture company Designs Northwest came up with the design and then built a house that they say would be able to make it through the most extreme weather. They ended making The Tsunami House. The house itself measures at 3,149 meters squared. The main level has an area of 887 square feet and was made to be 5 feet above the grade so that the foundations could stay intact if strong Tsunami waves make it to shore. The lower level was made with walls that can break away if a storm came. While being so sturdy, the architects also made sure that the durable materials would also require very little maintenance.

    4. No Flooding In The Floodplain
    Being near the Mississippi is a known place for its excessive flooding. And so those that live and work in the area know the risks involved when it comes to the floodplains. During flooding season, everything can get submerged in water. However, there are a few homes in the area that have their own levees that surround the properties, like this house in Vicksburg, Mississippi which keeps the water from affecting the land and home. This photo was taken in 2011, where the water reached 56.3 feet high.

    3.The Dome Of A Home
    We’ve already talked about how dome houses seem to be some of the smartest kind of housing there is when it comes to disaster-proof homes. And this house on Pensacola Beach, Florida can attest to that claim. Known as Dome of a Home, this monolithic dome home has made appearances on TV and is available for rent. It got famous not only for its strange design, but also for its durability. See, hurricanes have hit the area loads since the building of this house and it seems the building stayed standing while the other homes around it had been damaged due to the weather conditions.

    2. Through Wind And Fire
    It may not look like much, but this house on Cusabo Island South Carolina was made to make through different kinds of disasters. The house measures at 3,888 square feet and sits on a raised foundation. The house’s design came from the innovation of Woollen Studio, a Seattle-based company. Parky City built the house, which more than meets the requirements for FEMA’s flood zone rules. The steel structure and steel exterior helps it stay fire resistant and able to endure winds that can reach 140 miles per hour. It also has insulated storm doors and shutters so as to retain heat and minimize temperature drop. As for that raised foundation? It’s height does not allow for floods to affect the house.

    1. The Safe House
    And then we come to number one, the safest house of all these safe houses. Actually named The Safe House, architect Robert Konieczny built the house to be able to withstand all sorts of disasters, natural or societal. It’s been hailed the safest house you can be in the event of a zombie apocalypse and was completed in 2011. The house, located in Warsaw, Poland, can transform form this more open housing area to a boxed in fortress. The walls can automatically slide back into the house. The windows get covered with huge blocks and a huge screen covers the glass windows and doors.

    10 Never Seen Before Google Maps & Google Earth Sightings! Recently at DailyTop10s HQ, we’ve been trawling Google Earth inch by inch to try and find the strangest things we could find, after 5 days of searching, we think we have found quite a few!

    #GoogleEarth #GoogleMaps #CaughtOnCamera

    :::TRANSCRIPT:::

    10. US Spy Hypersonic SR-72 Plane
    Is this really the latest Hypersonic SR-72 Spy Plane sitting in an airfield car park in Palm Gardens, Florida? After going back in time, it was first spotted sitting in the car-park, but in images now, it can be seen on the other side of the car park on a patch of grass, or at least we think it is the same aircraft.

    9. Strange Sea Lights
    Spotted in the Parcel Islands of the South China Sea, we can see a ship that looks like it is firing a missile, or maybe it’s on fire. What makes this one even more strange is the other red fireball like objects close by too. The only other explanation we could think of for this is it’s a load of big and small boats collectively made from metal and the sun is setting and at the perfect time this satellite image was take, giving the fireball appearance effect. Again, thoughts? WEIRD! Unless it’s a secret Chinese military weapon.

    8. Moving Ice Mystery
    Upon first finding this in the South Pole on South Georgia & South Sandwich Island…strange name, in the South Pole, we thought maybe it was just an avalanche, however when you take a closer look it is a very long way for an avalanche to travel, especially when you view it in 3D. Is this a case of bizarre moving ice, or is there something much more sinister or secret under the ice lands of South Sandwich Island? The mystery remains.

    7. Strange Arizona Object
    Now this one is very strange, almost UFO looking & if you live in the Arizona or New Mexico area, we’d really appreciate you going and looking at this for us to expose the mystery. It would appear there is a random UFO type structure on the ground, along with some type of building ruins to the left of it.

    6. Bering Strait Plane Crash
    While looking around the Bering Strait Sea between Russia and the US for any oddities, we came across this plane, which looks like something from the 1980s and possibly crashed on Russian soil. From research, news suggests the crash occurred in 1991 with all 9 passengers surviving. The single-engine Olson Air Service plane was traveling from Nome to the Soviet Union States when it was hit by sudden engine problems.

    5. Bizarre Ocean Object
    Of all the weird finds on our list so far, this is by far the weirdest. Spotted off the coast of the South Pole and roughly 700km from the southernmost tip of Argentina, it would seem at first glass to be a weird sea creature or possibly a secret military submarine rising from the water.

    4. US Invisible Aircraft Program
    As seen from this Google Aerial shot, it would seem like the US of A’s Invisible Aircraft program is coming along quite well, obviously still not 100% of the way there, but making good progress for sure. The aircraft was spotted in Dyess Airforce Base in Texas. What do you think, Google Maps imaging error, or is this really one of the 1st real pieces of evidence that stealth invisible aircraft technology exists?

    3. Underwater UFO
    Now this could very well just be a strange looking piece of underwater floor bed, however it does look very much like a sunken UFO or underwater base of some sort & when you adjust the photo’s colours and brightness, this is what appears. It is located just off the coast of the Greek coastal city of Nea Michaniona.

    2. Cambodian Jungle Plane
    The owner of DailyTop10s used to work in the Cambodian Jungle for 6 months, so he was once looking for camping spots to take guests out on a 3-day trek. While browsing, he spotted something in the jungle on Google Earth, it looked like an airplane, on closer inspection it is around 170 meters long. Sadly, he never managed to get to this location to check it out & his DJI drone could not go that far remotely, so the mystery remains to this day. He doesn’t think it is missing MH370, however it did only appear a few weeks after the crash.

    1. North Sentinel Island Shipwreck
    Finally, on the list is this shipwreck, not a total mystery after some research, it’s the shipwreck from a crew who got stranded on North Sentinel Island. They were all killed in 1981 when the cargo ship landed ashore in a storm. A tribe would be there fatality.
    Rescue crews tried to reach them, only to be speared at from the shore by tribal people.

  • ONLY in the Philippines! SUNKEN CEMETERY | Camiguin Island vlog 2018

    13:43

    Camiguin Island in the Philippines is beautiful. After making a travel vlog about the Giant Clams Sanctuary with my friend Aitz, I set my sights on the Sunken Cemetery. As a foreigner in the Philippines, this was amazing travel vlog material.

    The sunken cemetery fell into the ocean with the 1871 eruption of Mount Vulcan. It was built by the spanish, and has seen a lot of destruction over the years. More eruptions, typhoons, and tsunamis have turned this beautiful graveyard into rubble, leaving only a few relics under water.

    This Philippines travel vlog was recorded after leaving my expat friends Kulas of Becoming Filipino, Daniel Marsh, Finnsnow, Bret Maverick, and the fighterboys in Cagayan de Oro, CDO, and continuing for a mini adventure in Northern Mindanao

  • THE SAGA OF ERIK THE RED - FULL LENGTH AUDIBOOK

    1:26:08

    ✪✪✪✪✪ ✪✪✪✪✪

    THE SAGA OF ERIK THE RED - FULL LENGTH AUDIBOOK

    The Saga of Erik the Red is one of the two important thirteenth-century accounts of the Norse explorations of Greenland and North America, along with The Saga of the Greenlanders. Containing fantastic anecdotes about ghostly visitations, wise women-seers, and one-legged native Unipeds, the saga is just as fascinating for what is clearly authentic history. It vividly relates the conflict between Christianity and the old Norse religion; the significant place of extraordinary women in Icelandic and Greenland culture; the frequent incursions of the Norsemen into Ireland and Scotland, lands really not at all far from the centers of Norse activity; and first contact with the native inhabitants of the Dawnlands of northeastern North America. Most absorbing are the clear embodiments of real human personalities in this historical saga: Leif Erikson and his lover, the renownedly intelligent Thorgunna who boldly renounced social convention; Gudrid the daughter of Thorbiorn, beautiful and of strong and influential character; Thioldhild, the wife of Erik the Red, who refused to have sex with him so long as he resisted Christianity; Thorbiorg, the eldritch “Little Sibyl,” who dispensed prophecies to the settlers of Greenland; and Thorhall, the fey, untameable hunter, who held fast to his god Thor the Red-Bearded even when it meant being severed from human society. This translation by Arthur Middleton Reeves is taken from a weighty compilation of texts related to the Norse explorations entitled The Norse Discoveries of America and including the translations and editing of fellow Norse scholars North Ludlow Beamish and Rasmus Björn Anderson.

  • The Saga of Erik the Red by UNKNOWN read by Expatriate | Full Audio Book

    1:26:09

    The Saga of Erik the Red (Reeves Translation) by UNKNOWN ( - ), translated by Arthur Middleton REEVES (1856 - 1891)
    Genre(s): Middle Ages/Middle History

    Read by: Expatriate in English

    Chapters:
    00:00:00 - 00 - Introduction
    00:22:44 - 01 - Part I
    00:45:01 - 02 - Part II
    01:03:00 - 03 - Part III

    The Saga of Erik the Red is one of the two important thirteenth-century accounts of the Norse explorations of Greenland and North America, along with The Saga of the Greenlanders. Containing fantastic anecdotes about ghostly visitations, wise women-seers, and one-legged native Unipeds, the saga is just as fascinating for what is clearly authentic history. It vividly relates the conflict between Christianity and the old Norse religion; the significant place of extraordinary women in Icelandic and Greenland culture; the frequent incursions of the Norsemen into Ireland and Scotland, lands really not at all far from the centers of Norse activity; and first contact with the native inhabitants of the Dawnlands of northeastern North America. Most absorbing are the clear embodiments of real human personalities in this historical saga: Leif Erikson and his lover, the renownedly intelligent Thorgunna who boldly renounced social convention; Gudrid the daughter of Thorbiorn, beautiful and of strong and influential character; Thioldhild, the wife of Erik the Red, who refused to have sex with him so long as he resisted Christianity; Thorbiorg, the eldritch 'Little Sibyl,' who dispensed prophecies to the settlers of Greenland; and Thorhall, the fey, untameable hunter, who held fast to his god Thor the Red-Bearded even when it meant being severed from human society.This translation by Arthur Middleton Reeves is taken from a weighty compilation of texts related to the Norse explorations entitled The Norse Discoveries of America and including the translations and editing of fellow Norse scholars North Ludlow Beamish and Rasmus Björn Anderson.

  • The Western Arctic and the Demise of Yankee Whaling; Presentation by Bradley W. Barr, Ph.D.

    1:25:26

    In this presentation at the Martha's Vineyard Museum's Morgan Learning Center, Dr. Brad Barr describes his research on the whaling disaster of September of 1871. In this event, 32 whaling ships were trapped in the ice along the Chukchi Sea coast of Alaska with winter fast approaching. Unable to sail to safety with their valuable cargo, the 1,219 survivors abandoned the ice-bound ships, enduring a life-threatening journey as they rowed, sailed, and dragged their small whaleboats across the ice through the gales of early winter to rescue. Such were the perils that were encountered by Arctic whalers, and often with less fortunate outcomes.


    In 2015, a team led by maritime archaeologists and historians from the Maritime Heritage Program at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) went to the Arctic to use advanced underwater remote sensing technology to determine if, after 144 years, anything remained of the wreckage of these ships that would help to better understand and document this pivotal historic event. Join Dr. Brad Barr as he shares what was found, and explains how it has helped to write the final chapter of this compelling saga of loss and survival.



    Dr. Brad Barr is a Senior Advisor in the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries’ Maritime Heritage Program. He serves on the faculty of the University Center of the Westfjords in Ísafjör∂ur, Iceland, along with the University of New Hampshire School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering. This presentation is given at the Martha's Vineyard Museum, Morgan Learning Center in combination with the Museum's exhibit, Northern Connections: Martha's Vineyard and the Arctic.

  • March 25th, 2021 | Elliotts Creek/West Blocton/Eagle Point/Ohatchee Supercell 2

    1:59:59

    Second two hour block of the powerful supercell responsible for FOUR separate tornadoes that formed across Central Alabama on March 25th, 2021.

    The first tornado of which this storm produced was the Elliotts Creek EF-3 tornado in Hale/Tuscaloosa Counties. Then came the West Blocton/Northern Shelby County EF-3 tornado, then the Ohatchee EF-3 tornado, and finally the Piedmont EF-0 in Cherokee County.

    This supercell produced multiple long-track tornadoes as it blazed a path of destruction through Bibb, Shelby, St. Clair, and Calhoun Counties. This supercell in particular produced both the infamous Ohatchee EF-3 tornado that killed 5 people and injured 10 others, plus the Helena/Eagle Point tornado that caused widespread property damage in the Southern suburbs of Birmingham.

  • Italy: Capsized migrant ship exhibited at Venice Biennale

    The remains of a Libyan fishing vessel that sank in the Mediterranean with around 800 migrants on board in 2015 arrived in Venice on Monday and was seen on display on Friday. It is being exhibited at the 58th Venice Biennale which is opening this week.

    The vessel was carrying around 800 migrants when it hit a Portuguese cargo ship overnight on April 18, 2015 and quickly sank between Libya and the Italian island of Lampedusa. Almost all of those on board were left trapped in the ship's hold and only 28 survived the disaster, which was the deadliest migrant shipwreck in the Mediterranean in the period.

    It was retrieved from the seabed in 2016 at the request of the Italian government led by former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, and brought to Venice on Monday.

    The exhibited ship has been dubbed Barca Nostra or Our Ship by Swiss artist Christoph Buchel, who aims to turn the wreckage into a symbol of the migrants' tragedy in the Mediterranean. He received permission from a group of survivors to display the vessel in this manner.

    I did not have an opinion. I thought it was necrophilia. But now that I've seen it, I think people can understand what a migrant boat really is. Not just as when you see them on television, where they look small. This was big and it was full of people, said Venice resident Maria Teresa Ruggero.

    Barca Nostra will be part of the International Art Exhibition dubbed “May You Live In Interesting Times, which will run from May 11 to November 24 this year in Venice.

Her journalistic work combines incredible stories of record breakers and survivors with interesting history and science all to answer the book’s title. In this conversation, we talk about her work to track down and chat with the book’s varied characters, the extreme research she did (including swimming without a wetsuit in San Francisco Bay’s 56° water) and an ancient, influential form of swimming that would have been highlighted in this summer’s Tokyo Olympic Ceremonies.

  • PART FIVE: Trumpeter DKM U- Boat Type VIIC U- 552 Engine Room

    10:55

    Part Five: Trumpeter DKM U-Boat Type VIIC U-552 : Engine Room

    Story: German submarine U-552 also widley known as Der Rote Teufel was a Type VIIC U-Boat built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine for service during World War II. She was laid down on 1 December 1939 at Blohm & Voss in Hamburg as yard number 528, launched on 14 September 1940 and went into service on 4 December 1940. U-552 was nicknamed the Roter Teufel (Red Devil) after its mascot of a grinning devil which was painted on the conning tower. She was one of the more successful of her class, operating for over three years of continual service and sinking or damaging 30 Allied ships with 164,276 tons sunk and 26,910 tons damaged. She was a member of 21 wolf packs.

    U-552 was involved in two controversial actions: in October 1941 she sank the USS Reuben James, the first US Navy warship to be lost in World War II; this was at a time when the US was still officially neutral, and caused a diplomatic row. In April 1942 she sank the freighter SS David H. Atwater off the US seaboard in a particularly brutal attack, characterized as a naval atrocity.

    U-552 had an unusually long service life, surviving to the end of World War II; after evacuating from her French base during the spring of 1944 she operated on training duties in the Baltic Sea until 2 May 1945, when her crew scuttled her in Helgoland Bight, to prevent her falling into enemy handsInitial voyage to Helgoland
    Following construction, which was completed on 4 December 1940, U-552 was given two months of working-up training, during which she prepared her crew and equipment for the operations ahead. She then sailed from Kiel on 13 February to Helgoland for her first official patrol, arriving there on 18 February 1941. This port city was to remain U-552's home base until she was transferred to the occupied French port of St Nazaire in mid-March 1941.

    First patrol
    U-552's first official war patrol began on 18 February 1941 when she left Helgoland for a patrol in the North Sea and the North Atlantic south of Iceland.[4] This first operation yielded one British tanker and one Icelandic trawler carrying fish.[5] The British tanker, Cadillac, was sunk just north of Scotland on 1 March while the trawler was sunk just south of Iceland on 10 March.[5] Following these victories, U-552 headed back to St Nazaire. The remainder of her later patrols were all conducted from the French city, which gave her easy access to the Atlantic Ocean and allowed her more time at sea

    Second patrol
    U-552 began her second war patrol on 7 April 1941 when she left her new home port of St Nazaire for the North Atlantic. For 30 days she searched the area of Ocean south of Iceland and West of Ireland for any Allied convoys. During this time she sank three British merchant vessels and damaged another for a total of 24,119 tones. Following her torpedoing of the British ship Capulet on 28 April, which only managed to damage the vessel, U-552 was depth-charged in five separate attacks by two accompanying destroyers. After several hours, the U-boat managed to escape but was unable to pursue the convoy. After these attacks, U-552 returned to St Nazaire on 6 May.

    Third patrol
    U-552 left St Nazaire for her third war patrol on 25 May 1941. In 39 days, she travelled into the North Atlantic and sank three British vessels: the Ainderby on 10 June, the Chinese Prince on 12 June and the Norfolk on 18 June. During the attack on the Norfolk, U-552 attempted to attack the remaining ships in the convoy but was forced to break off the attack due to the arrival of several of the convoy's escorts. All of these attacks occurred off the northwest coast of Ireland, and once U-552 returned to St. Nazaire on 2 July 1941 she had amassed a total of 24,401 tonnes from the ships she had sunk.

  • Britain restores last gallipoli warship to mark campaigns centenary

    1:03

    For More Latest News Subscribe us:

    PORTSMOUTH, UNITED KINGDOM: Britain's last surviving warship from Gallipoli is being restored to mark the bloody campaign's centenary, as a new exhibition tries to counter myths surrounding the disastrous World War I offensive.

    HMS M33, one of only three British ships remaining from the whole 1914-1918 war, is being painstakingly renovated in a dry dock in Portsmouth, the Royal Navy's home on the English south coast.

    The rudimentary battleship is being conserved to help bring the story of Gallipoli to life and attempt to paint a more rounded picture of the costly Allied attempt to seize the Turkish peninsula.

    She's a little time capsule, said Nick Hewitt, strategic development executive at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, standing on the upper deck.

    She's a survivor that actually went into action and fought in a really significant international campaign.
