The canyon walls were the primary source of stone for their construction, but, where did the wood come from? According to archaeologists, this incredible engineering process would have needed over 250,000 trees. If you travel to Chaco Canyon today, you will notice an absolutely desolate landscape. Samples taken from the wood indicate that the material originated form elsewhere in the region, some of the pieces of wood originated from distances of over 50 miles. For the cutting and carving process, the ancient builders only used stone axes. The ancient people of Chaco did not have carts or horses to transport the timber, so how did they transport their building materials? Archaeologists have placed the Anasazi between 900 and 1250 AD. There is no doubt that the residents of these incredible ancient structures are long gone, but what happened to them? Why did they vanish like many other great civilization in the Americas? Was it a natural disaster that made them leave their home? And if so, where did they go to? Source: Ancient Code Via: Woo Woo Media.

North Carolina recruiters, take note. At halftime during the Tar Heels' matchup with NC State earlier this month, ball kid Asher Lucas sank three straight half-court shots, much to the delight of fans watching. What looks like a regular shoot-around with all of the ball kids turns into a spectacle of young athletic prowess. And it's not like North Carolina needed any help that game. The Tar Heels won by an absurd 51 points. But it's never too early to start recruiting.

Those planning to take a trip this summer may want to book their air travel sooner than later, as ticket costs are expected to increase incrementally between now and June 2017. Airfare-tracking app Hopper suggests flight prices could begin rising as soon as February, with peak rates coming in the middle of summer. This projection is based on several factors that affect the price of flights, including seasonal demand and historical data. As it stands now, airfare is trending up by 8% compared to January 2016, but is still 9% cheaper compared to 2015. While the average flight price might be low now, it's predicted to increase the closer we get to spring break and the summer travel season. In February, prices are expected to rise by 5.4%, with the biggest spike predicted between April and May, when prices could jump by nearly 10%. The average price of a domestic flight is expected to hit $271 by June, an increase of nearly $50 compared to the January average of $222.
