SO WHERE do baby silicon chips come from; for someone in Sudan, they can honestly say the stork brought it.
A Polish environmental group that was using a mobile-phone transmitter to track migratory movements of a stork has received a phone bill of 10,000 zlotys ($3,000) after the bird went missing in Sudan and someone started using the chip to make calls, reports Yahoo! News.
Like other storks who nest in Poland in the summer, Kajtek, an adult stork, began his southward migration to Africa in Aug 2017.
The bird’s last signal came from Sudan on 26 Apr but since then some 20 hours of calls have been made using the SIM card in Sudan.

A Welsh father and son are developing a device to protect swimmers and surfers from shark attacks, using the “manufactured scent” of dead sharks.

The key stinky compound has been identified, with the pair now experimenting with dosages and dispersion rates in the hope of commercialising the product.
