On a cold January evening when you were bundled up cozy and warm, two Castleton StateCollege students were walking through the woods of Hubbardton looking and listening for signs that will point them to the legendary Sasquatch. Zachary Davidson and Andrew Nevins have formed a Sasquatch Club on campus and are hell bent on finding the elusive critter. Davidson,president of the club, and Vice President Nevins, believe Sasquatch was in Hubbardton before the TV show “Finding Bigfoot” came to Castleton’s backyard this past semester.

Mariana Trench: Deepest ocean 'teems with microbes'
By Rebecca Morelle Science reporter, BBC World Service
The deepest place in the ocean is teeming with microscopic life, a study suggests.An international team of scientists found that the very bottom of the Mariana Trench, which lies almost 11km (7 miles) down in the Pacific Ocean, had high levels of microbial activity.The research is published in the journal Nature Geoscience. The underwater canyon was once thought to be too hostile an environment for life to exist.But this study adds to a growing body of evidence that a range of creatures can cope with the near-freezing temperatures, immense pressures and complete darkness.
