Piano on a sandbar; Dubai islands; dating for sea captains: our ocean roundup
There is a piano on a sandbar. That is all. In Florida's Biscayne Bay, a grand piano sits abandoned on a sandbar.That's all the Miami Herald knows and the Florida police know and the residents of a nearby condominium development know. It weighs about 600 pounds and showed up a few days ago. The police have no plans of moving it. The Miami Herald speculates that perhaps it was someone's way of getting rid of an old piano. I'd like to imagine it's a grand gesture to classical music and the nature that inspires it.
Dubai islands drowing?
Despite media reports that the famous Dubai World Islands are sinking, the developer Nakheel flatly denies any such sinkage and described the reports as "wholly inaccurate." The development, small islands built to resemble a map of the Earth when viewed from the sky, has had its share of debt problems. Thirty percent of the islands are still up for sale, in case anyone's in the market.
