    4. 15-year-old student discovers lost ancient city
    Grade 10 student William Gadoury from Quebec may have discovered a lost Mayan city that is at least 4,600 years old. By studying them, he realized that the Mayans usually aligned their cities with the position of stars. When he matched all Mayan cities via Google Earth satellite images, he discovered that one of the three stars in the Orion constellation—which holds a central place in the Mayan religion and culture—did not align with any city. Gadoury then deduced that a city matching the star should be located somewhere in Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. He presented his theory at a science school fair and won a trip to an international conference by Canadian Space Agency, where he got the chance to request images captured by the agency’s RADARSAT-2 satellite.

    5. Couple who lost three kids in plane crash welcomes new baby
    Australian couple Anthony and Marite Maslin had welcomed a new baby, a daughter named Violet May, nearly two years after they lost all three of their young kids in a plane crash. Their kids Mo, 13, Otis, 12, and Evie Maslin 9, with their grandfather Nick Norris were on board when Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down in Ukraine in July 2014. The arrival of Violet May is a "gift" and a testament to their belief that love is stronger than hate. "We still live with pain, but Violet, and the knowledge that all four kids are with us always, brings light to our darkness. We will continue to love all four of our children equally. Violet brings some hope and joy for us," Marite said. Congratulations! (theguardian.com
