#Whatmyhandsdoing: Project Showing How Much Work Your Hands Do


You use them to write, to open doors, to brush teeth and to eat. Your hands are regularly working throughout the day, and you probably don’t ever think twice about it.

22-year-old Romo Jack will encourage you to pay more attention to your hands with his project “#WhatMyHandsDoing.” Jack photographs scenes of his hands working on various activities like painting, ironing or praying. Each photo is set up with colorful objects arranged neatly within the frame. He then shares the diverse images on his Instagram account.

They have imitated the success of their male counterparts on the field. And now Oxford University women’s rugby team are copying the boys by posing for their own naked calendar. The Oxford University women’s rugby team, who meet their Cambridge rivals on December 10, have stripped off for the calendar, in 13 different rugby-related poses. With only strategically positioned hands to maintain their modesty the players leave little to the imagination.

U-118, a World War One Submarine Washed Ashore on the Beach at Hastings, England


When the people of the town of Hastings awoke one morning to see one of the Kaiser’s U-boats on their beach, it caused some shock. Thousands of visitors flocked to see the beached submarine. The Admiralty allowed the town clerk to charge a fee for people to climb on the deck. Two members of the coastguard were tasked with showing important visitors around inside the submarine.

Thousands of people flocked to the seafront to catch a glimpse of the boat.

The visits were curtailed when both men became severely ill, they both died shortly after. It was a mystery what killed the men at the time and so all trips into the sub were stopped, it was later discovered that chlorine gas which had been escaping from SM U-118′s batteries had caused severe abscesses on the lungs and brains of the unfortunate men.

The total sum collected from the fees was almost £300 which was used in an event to welcome the town’s troops returning from the war.

SM U-118 was commissioned on 8 May 1918, following construction at the AG Vulcan Stettin shipyard in Hamburg. It was commanded by Herbert Stohwasser and joined the I Flotilla operating in the eastern Atlantic. After about four months without any ships sunk, on 16 September 1918, SM U-118 scored its first hit on another naval vessel.

Its length: 81.5 meters!

With the ending of hostilities on 11 November 1918 came the subsequent surrender of the Imperial German Navy, including SM U-118 to France on 23 February 1919. Following the surrender, U-118 was to be transferred to France where it would be broken up for scrap. However, in the early hours of 15 April 1919, while it was being towed through the English Channel towards Scapa Flow, its dragging hawser broke off in a storm. The ship ran aground on the beach at Hastings in Sussex at approximately 12:45am, directly in front of the Queens Hotel.

Initially there were attempts to displace the stricken vessel; three tractors tried to refloat the submarine and a French destroyer attempted to break the ship apart using its cannons. These attempts however were unsuccessful and the proximity of the submarine to the public beach and Queens Hotel dissuaded further use of explosive forces.

Under the command of Herbert Strohwasser, U-118 managed to sink two ships while on its one and only patrol before being surrendered on February 1919.

This type of U-Boat had a length of 81.5 m, speed: 11.5 knots (21.3 km/h; 13.2 mph) surfaced and 7 knots (13 km/h; 8.1 mph) submerged, test depth: 75 m (246 ft). Total crew: 36 men.

SM U-118 was a type UE II mine laying submarine of the Imperial German Navy and one of 329 submarines serving with that navy during World War I.

Eventually, between October and December 1919, U-118 was broken up and the pieces removed and sold for scrap.
