Swimmers have been warned to stay away from a beach after a sinkhole the size of a football pitch opened up. Officials said the sinkhole swallowed part of Jumpinpin Beach on North Stradbroke Island off of Queensland state in Australia, according to local media. The sinkhole is believed to be about 100 metres (328ft) wide. Surf Life Saving Queensland wrote on Twitter: "North Straddie sinkhole does not = good swimming hole! Stay well back from edge & remember to #swimbetweentheflags." Another message added: "North Straddie now believed to be affected by significant coastal erosion from strong tidal changes, after consultation with land managers." The area is reported to be a popular fishing spot, but is only accessible by 4x4. Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service said some of the sand was beginning to return with the tide, the Brisbane Times reported. "It's an area where the sand is constantly shifting," QPWS southeast regional director Mick Cubis said. "Queensland's coastal sand masses are dynamic environments and change all the time due to wind, tides and waves."
Amazing footage has emerged of a forest carpet appearing to breathe like a sleeping giant. The video was captured by Brian Nuttall at Apple River in Nova Scotia, Canada, on his mobile phone. It shows the ground rising and falling. What in fact is happening is explained by Mr Nuttall in a Facebook post. "I believe the larger trees are doomed to blow down but are currently spared, the smaller trees around them help hold each other up, as the wind pushes the trees into one another," he said. "The punishing prevailing winds have taken their toll on the side hill, the roots have loosened and the mossy ground from the once shaded forest floor are giving way, soon to be toppled over." Shot by Mr Nuttall on October 31, the video has been viewed more than three million times online and his Facebook post has been liked by more than 13,500 people with over 100 comments.

Alex Rivest took a tour around the leading edge of the lava flow on Big Island, Hawaii in December 2010 and his guide decided to demonstrate the viscosity of the molten rock by quickly placing his foot on the surface. The lava was barely displaced by the weight placed upon it, and the main effect of the action was the intense heat that started to burn the guide’s shoe.That’s why Alex advises to never try this by yourself and only ever travel to this area with professional guides.
