Titanic: human body remains? Shipwreck site photo: likely forensic remains

No bodies, nor bones have been found near Titanic after 100 years, yet the photos of footwear and clothing give some clues to specialists.

Boots and coat parts found at the Titanic shipwreck site are covering human corpse remains, states James Delgado from the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration.

"I as an archaeologist would say those are human remains," Delgado said, referring to the photograph of the coat and boots specifically. "Buried in that sediment are very likely forensic remains of that person."

Photos of shoes and coat, plates and kitchenware found at Titanic shipwreck site, have come into public attention on April 15, 2012.

A pair of boots and a coin survived the 100-year underwater confinement.

Anders Breivik trial photo, Breivik's tear at court, 16 Apr 2012

Anders Breivik who earlier compared himself to Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull still went defiant while on trial 16 Apr 2012.

"I acknowledge the acts but do not plead guilty, and I claim I was doing it in self-defense".

“I don't recognize Norwegian courts because you get your mandate from the Norwegian political parties who support multiculturalism.”

Breivik couldn't take his seat at once, as jurors started coming up one by one to shake hands.

The lone-wolf Breivik was deeply moved when his anti-multiculturalism YouTube video was presented.

TUF S15E06 photos: Ticle, Proctor, TUF S15, MMA, UFC

Once the production team put focus, in the middle of the episode, on how Faber strategically trains Proctor, the result of the fight was spoiled.

Chris Tickle, throwing multiple haymakers and a few uppercuts, meets Joe Proctor, who is timing his footwork and waiting for opportuniry to take a back for a rear naked choke.

D.White openly sympathizing with tough brawler Tickle, we can surely expect to watch the guy on UFC again.

God Bless America movie review,Tara Lynne Barr,Joel Murray,Travis Wester pics

God Bless America movie review (IMHO):
Despite a typical 'I am through with you all' plot line, the movie seems to have a very good suspense.

Though Joel Murray's Frank sometimes looks incompetent, and weak, he shows much integrity and can handle a gun, which makes him manly.

And though Tara Lynne Barr doesn't sound like a 16 yo schoolgirl at all, her pleasant smile brings some comforting relief.

A non-heavy chunk of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's timely song "Beat The Devil's Tattoo" doesn't disturb nerves and goes cool.
