The Arctic lost to time: Amazing archive photos chart a 19th-century attempt to reach the North Pole in a huge wooden boat

 

-The Nansen Photographs tells the story of how 12 men set off from Norway in 1893 in a ship called Fram

-The expedition was led by Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who loaded Fram with 3,000 bottles of beer

-'The expedition proved the theory of a current running across the Polar Sea from east to west,' the author says

-Many of the diary entries that appear in the book have been translated into English for the very first time

 

It's an extraordinary tale of derring-do told in a mesmerising new book via fascinating archive pictures – and worthy of a Hollywood movie too.

 

The Nansen Photographs by Geir O Klover, published by Teneues, tells the story of 12 intrepid men, led by Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who set off from Norway in June 1893 with the aim of reaching the North Pole.

 

They sailed in a wooden ship called Fram - packed with skis, kayaks, very woolly jumpers and 3,000 bottles of beer - and braved attacks from polar bears and walruses.

 

During the ends-of-the-earth expedition, which lasted until August 1896, Nansen put to the test a theory that there was a current running from east to west across the Arctic Ocean. He hoped to reach the North Pole by allowing Fram to get trapped by the pack ice north of Siberia and drift across the ocean. The adventurer was disappointed when he discovered that the drifting Fram did not approach the North Pole, so together with his colleague, Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen, he left the ship and his crew and set out for their intended destination on skis. Though they never made it to the North Pole, Nansen reached a record northern latitude of 86 degrees and 14 minutes.

 

Throughout the expedition, along with his crew, he carried out a wealth of research into the Arctic and 'painstakingly measured depths to almost 4,000 metres (13,123ft)'. The author notes: 'The expedition proved the theory of a current running across the Polar Sea from east to west and that the earth's rotation probably influences the sea currents, which was later proved and named the Ekman Spiral.'

 

Every single recovered photograph taken during the expedition appears in the tome, and many of the diary entries that feature have been translated into English for the very first time. 'They illustrate in a touching, sometimes dismaying way how the participants went about their daily lives and carried out their research; what conflicts they fought out and how they ultimately brought the daring undertaking to a good end,' the publisher says. Scroll down to see 10 remarkable archival photographs that appear in the tome, brilliantly illustrating the daring mission undertaken by Nansen and his men…

Cardinals coach Sean Kugler was fired for allegedly groping woman in Mexico

 

Arizona Cardinals offensive line coach and running game coordinator Sean Kugler was fired after he allegedly groped a woman on Sunday night while the team was in Mexico City for a game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN.

 

Mexican authorities informed the Cardinals of the incident and Kugler was terminated by the team. He was not present for Arizona’s 38-10 loss to San Francisco at Estadio Azteca.

 

“We relieved him of his duties, and he was sent home Monday morning prior to the game,” coach Kliff Kingsbury told The Arizona Republic’s Bob McManaman. “It’s challenging anytime you make a staff change in that type of manner.”

 

Further details about the matter were not disclosed. The Cardinals and Kugler have not yet addressed the situation publicly.

 

Prior to joining Kingsbury’s staff in 2019, Kugler coached with the Lions, Bills, Steelers, and Broncos. The 56-year-old also coached at the college and high school levels.

 

Cardinals assistant offensive line coach Brian Natkin and tight ends coach Steve Heiden will take over Kugler’s duties.

 

Kugler is the second Cardinals assistant coach to be accused of assaulting a woman this year.

 

In August, former running backs coach James Saxon was placed on administrative leave after news broke that he had been charged with assaulting a woman in her Indianapolis home in May. Saxon was given one year of probation, and he resigned in October.

 

The Cardinals host the Chargers on Sunday.

Colorado gay club shooter is NON-BINARY and uses they/ them pronouns, lawyer says - as it's revealed estranged father is MMA fighter and PORN STAR named 'Dick Delaware'

 

  • Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, is suspected of murdering five people and injuring others at Club Q in Colorado on Saturday

  • The suspect's original name was Nicholas Franklin Brink before he changed it to Anderson Lee Aldrich in 2016

  • According to a petition, the name change was meant 'to protect himself and his future from any connections' to his birth father, Aaron Brink

  • Brink reportedly left Aldrich's mother when Anderson was a baby, before taking up MMA and porn under the alias 'Dick Delaware'

  • He also appeared on camera on the reality shows Divorce Court and Intervention in 2009, when his fiancée tried to get him to stop using crystal meth

 

Colorado gay club shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich previously changed their name and now identifies as non-binary, using they/them pronouns.

 

Aldrich, 22, is suspected of murdering five people and injuring others at Club Q on Saturday - meanwhile, it was revealed that their dad is a porn star who goes by the name 'Dick Delaware.'

 

The suspect's original name is Nicholas Franklin Brink. They changed it to Anderson Lee Aldrich in 2016 in a petition signed by their mother, biological grandmother and step-grandfather.

 

In a court filing, Aldrich's public defenders said that their client is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, referring to the client as 'Mx. Anderson Aldrich.'

 

According to the petition, which was signed when Aldrich still identified as male, the name change was meant 'to protect himself and his future from any connections' to his birth father, Aaron Brink.

 

Aldrich is also apparently registered with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but to their knowledge, had not been an active member, according to the Washington Post.

 

Aaron Brink reportedly left Aldrich's mother when Anderson was a baby, before taking up MMA and porn, under the alias 'Dick Delaware.'

 

He also appeared on camera on the reality shows Divorce Court and Intervention in 2009, when his fiancée tried to get him to stop using crystal meth, according to the New York Post.

 

Brink has an extensive criminal history, including convictions for battery against the alleged shooter´s mother, Laura Voepel, both before and after the suspect was born, state and federal court records show.

 

A 2002 misdemeanor battery conviction in California resulted in a protective order that initially barred the father, Aaron F. Brink, from contacting the suspect or his mother except through an attorney, but was later modified to allow monitored visits with the child.

 

The father also was sentenced to two and a half years in custody for importation of marijuana and while on supervised release violated his conditions by testing positive for illegal steroids, according to public records.

 

Brink has a career record in MMA, across UFC and other fighting competitions, of 29 wins and 27 losses.

 

He was encouraged into doing porn by a producer at a party and began starring in films in 2002. He returned to the adult industry in 2019 after a lengthy hiatus.

 

Brink could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
