Recently, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow took on Bill O’Reilly and Fox News for O’Reilly taking his bombast to the point of directly threatening reporters for reporting. She also looks at the recent series of revelations about uncorrected false claims O’Reilly has made on Fox News.
Last year, during exceptionally low tides at Tyrella Beach in Northern Ireland, a team from the University of Bristol, England, used advanced geophysical techniques to search for the spot where the SS Great Britain was grounded in 1846.
Designed by engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the SS Great Britain had been built of iron with a screw propeller for trans-Atlantic voyages and was the longest passenger steamship in the world at the time, according to the publication Archaeology.
On the ship’s fifth voyage to New York, a navigational error resulted in the grounding in Northern Ireland at Dundrum Bay, close to Newcastle, Co. Down.
