• Biogas Training Tonga 2016 5 minute version

    Youth With A Mission/University of the Nations Tonga hosted a four week Biogas Training in Lafalafa, Tonga. Students representing a variety of Tongan villages attended. It was an intensely hands-on course where students learned in the classroom, but also spend a great deal of time building a state-of-the-art Biogas system on campus. It was an incredible accomplishment. We praise God for giving them the strength and resources to make history - being the first Tongans to build a Biogas system in Tonga!

  • First Stone House in Vava'u, Tonga (Part 1 of 2)

    Philip Wheeler has been living in Vava'u more than ten years. He is married to a lovely Vava'u lady called Nunia. Using local building materials he has built a beautiful and environmentally sensitive stone house using local coral limestone. Most people import materials, therefore incurring high costs and increased carbon emissions. Philip designed the building himself and it cost must less and is considerably more sturdy and long lasting than if he had built only in wood. Many people locally doubted it was possible, but now that it is built, it is inspiring much thought. It is probably the first and only building built of coral limestone in Tonga. For more information or if you would like to help Philip realise the next stage of the project please contact: Philip Wheeler on filipe...

  • Kariba Hydroelectric Plant - Zambia, Zimbabwe (1960)

    Kariba Dam & Hydroelectric plant is located in the Kariba Gorge of River Zambesi, between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The construction of that infrastructure, the first funded by World Bank in Africa, began in August 1956. It was completed at the end of 1959, six month ahead the scheduled terms, and was inaugurated on May 17 1960. Five international groups took part in the tender, the winner was an Italian consortium. For Salini Impregilo Group, Kariba Dam represents the first major collaboration between companies (Impresit, Girola, Lodigiani), that contributed to its history and that led, over the course of time, to its current configuration.

This video shows the natural environment where the infrastructure was displayed, the construction site, preparatory activities and project execution, and workers’ village. Around 10,000 people took part in the construction, including 5,000 local people, trained by Italian technicians and executives. The Kariba Hydroelectric Plant is a double-curvature concrete arch dam and a complex of underground works including penstocks, a power station, a transformer hall, expansion chambers, service tunnels and shafts. The artificial lake created by the dam measures 300 km in length, with a width of 30 km, a height of 128 m and total capacity of 185 million cubic meters. The underground powerhouse houses six units, each with a power generating capacity of 100,000 kW. _______________________________ Employer: Federal Power Board of Rhodesia and Nyasaland Contractor: Impresit Kariba Ltd., formed by the companies Impresit, Girola, Lodigiani, and Torno Engineering: Gibb – Coybe - Sogei _______________________________ Credits Original Title: A great river flows in Kariba A film by Ettore Angioletti Sardi Produttore associato e consulente artistico: Carlo Audisio Music: Teo Usuelli Sound Engineer: Luigi Puri Narration: Carlo Audisio, Guido Rocca Editing: Mario Bonotti

The crew couldn’t tell exactly where they were from and the coins origins are still somewhat of a mystery. After being down there for a long period of time, it’s believed the markings on them eroded. So we guess they won’t be giving them back to the original owner! 4. Vanuatu Skull Trying to piece together the history of pacific islands can be difficult at times due to the lack of stone structures. Besides the Tongan gate and Easter Island, there really isn’t a ton of evidence on their ancient ancestors. Things that can survive the test of time, are skeletons. This 3,000 year old skull you see in this photo, was separated from the body and placed in an ancient pot. This comes from the Lapita culture who lived on the island of Vanuatu. This civilization inhabited many of the south pacific islands like Samoa, Tonga and all the way to eastern coast of Papua New Guinea Extensive scientific research was done and it’s believed that the Lapita culture are originally descendants from the island of Taiwan. These were found at the bottom of a Cemetery on Efate Island. This discovery also leads archaeologists to conclude that the Lapita were the first settlers of these micro islands 3. Jungle Debris After all the intense fighting that took place in the South Pacific during world war two, there’s bound to be plenty of scraps from all kinds of military vehicles. People are still making discoveries of all the wreckage that took place between 1941-1945. Here in this photo we see an Imperial Japanese Fighter plane that was shot down during the Battle of Guadalcanal, in the Solomon Islands. Children on the islands still play at the beaches, right next the debris of a Japanese Imperial Navy transport vessel. The islands could be scared for quite some time, even 70 years later. With advancements in drones and aerial technology, they’re able to locate more wreckage than ever before, like this Sherman tank left in the shallow waters of the Northern Mariana Islands. 2. Radiation on Bikini Atoll Once the USA had captured much land in the South Pacific during world war II from the Japanese, they wanted to continue testing the weapons that won them the war to the absolute limit, and they would do so on their new territory. Bikini Atoll was where the US tested their most devastating weapons like the hydrogen bomb. Castle Bravo was the codename for the dry fuel hydrogen bomb that was detonated and the 2nd most power device ever detonated only behind russia’s tsar bomba. Bikini atoll was the site for 23 nuclear detonations. Researchers from Columbia University in the US recently discovered that the islands are still radioactive and no knows for sure when they’ll be safe to live here. 1. Chuuk Lagoon In 1944, there were more than 60 Japanese warships and 200 aircraft that met their watery grave in chuuk lagoon in the South Pacific, located west of Micronesia where an intense battle took place. This was one of Japan’s strategic bases that was wiped out by allied forces. On land, this place looks like a tropical paradise, but below the surface of the water lies the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. Due to its history and the spooky remains, it’s become a popular scuba diving location and left nearly untouched due to fear of bombs going off. It’s been rediscovered in recent years and explorers have had the opportunity to see the devastation. Here in this photo were see a tank covered in barnacles at the bottom of the lagoon. This photo here displays a car that was inside a Japanese ship that sank. Some scuba divers will even come across skulls.

Republic of Rose Island (1967-68) The Republic of Rose Island was a short-lived micronation 7 miles off the Italian Coast. In 1967, Italian engineer Giorgio Rosa funded the construction of a 4,300 sq ft platform complete with a restaurant, bar, nightclub, souvenir shop, and post office. The goal was to set up a bar and trattoria on the self-built island, and enjoy the views of the Adriatic shipping lanes, sipping a beer as boats sailed by. The Italian government would not approve Rosa's platform and so he declared it an independent state. Shortly after its declaration of independence, the Italian Government was tired of dealing with the issue and sent the Navy to blow up the Republic of Rose Island. 6. Principality of Sealand (1967-present) I mentioned the Principality of Sealand in the video on Fortified Places, but I wanted to share some more information that I found out about this notorious micronation. Located six miles off the eastern shores of Britain, it is one of four Maunsell Naval Sea Forts deployed by Britain during World War 2. During the war, it was home to 150-300 personnel, radar equipment, two 6-inch guns, and two 40mm anti-aircraft autocannons. All on that little platform? Nope, there's all kinds of stuff hiding under the water. After being abandoned by the Royal Navy it remained empty until 1967, when the fort was occupied by Major Paddy Roy Bates, a British subject and pirate radio broadcaster, who got some guns and some ammo to evict some competing radio pirates. He then declared the platform The Principality of Sealand; a sovereign, independent state. He was now the Prince, and he declared his wife the Princess for her birthday. How sweet! I don't know why he didn't just call himself the King. Why Prince? An attorney found a legal loophole allowing Roy to claim the fort due to fact that it was in international waters, and that it was up for grabs. The British Government tried to kick them out but a judge ruled that Sealand was in fact outside of British jurisdiction. But, the Navy did blow up another platform nearby to prevent a similar takeover there. The helicopters that carried the explosives flew over Sealand and the navy boat with the demolition crew passed close by and shouted “You’re next!”. If you thought this was enough drama, just wait. There is actually a Rebel Government of Sealand living in exile led by Alexander Achenbach who declared himself the Prime Minister of Sealand, hired some mercenaries, and kidnapped their son, Michael. The Bates family enlisted armed assistance, including a helicopter pilot who had done some work on James Bond movies, and headed back to Sealand to storm the fortress and take back their country. The intruders quickly surrendered, and were held as prisoners of war. The governments of the Netherlands, Austria and Germany petitioned the British government for their release, but again, the United Kingdom said that Sealand was outside its jurisdiction. Germany then sent a diplomat from its London embassy to Sealand to negotiate for Achenbach's release. Roy Bates relented after several weeks of negotiations and subsequently claimed that the diplomat's visit constituted de facto recognition of Sealand by Germany. Sealand’s official language is English, its currency is the Sealand Dollar, and it has stamps and passports in circulation. You can also buy your own noble title of Lord, Lady, Baron, Baroness and Knight. I don't know if I could pick just one! No smoking or drinking is allowed and you can only take a max of three five-minute showers per week. Its population rarely exceeds five people, and for the sake of security, visitors are unwelcome. Yeah I think I'll just check it out on Google Earth. Recently declassified documents show that the UK drafted plans to take the tower by force over 30 years ago, but such plans were not implemented due to the potential for loss of life, and the public relations disaster that would have followed. 5. Republic of Minerva (1972) The Republic of Minerva was briefly de facto independent in 1972, until it was invaded by Tonga and is now known as the Minerva Reefs. Both the North and South Minerva Reefs are used as anchorages by yachts traveling between New Zealand and Tonga or Fiji.
