You know the storyline, as been told and retold like in the 1997 movie Titanic. And you may have seen images like these, the wreckage of a disaster that killed more than 1,500 people when the ship that had been touted as unsinkable hit an iceberg and sunk. Its wreckage was found more than seventy years later, in 1985. But how much do you know about them, the people on the ship that set sail from Southampton England with massive publicity on April th, 19, heading New York?This is who they were: their names, professions, ages, what class tickets they had, at which stop they would have disembarked. The original handwritten passenger list has been published the first time, by the website findmypast. com. The site says it was allowed to scan the list kept in Britain's National Archives. It includes survivors who have told their stories over the years. It was a beautiful ship; it was too good to go down. The thirty-four-page list does not include those who boarded in France, such as the legendary Molly Brown. The website says that list was lost, or never collected by British authorities. But there are well known figures including the Countess of Rothes, who survived along with her cousin and maid, and a couple who helped inspire the movie, Henry Morley and Kate Phillips, they were eloping to New York and registered under the name Marshall. The list does not include the ship's crew. All those who died are being remembered Sunday in a ceremony at Southampton, the spot where the voyage began nearly a century ago.

70  Bungee -- Just the Thrill  Would you pay lots of money to fall off a 0-foot high platm, held only by an elastic cord around your waist or ankles? It may sound crazy, but lots of people do it. Bungee Jumping, as it is called, is gaining as much popularity as it is gaining controversy and criticism.  Bungee has quite an old origin. The idea of this way of jumping comes from the ancient ritual ;Gkol; permed in the Pentecost Island in the Pacific Archipelago of Vanuatu. The legend says that in the village Bunlap a man had a quarrel with his wife and she ran away and climbed a tree where she wrapped her ankles with vines. When he came up to her, the woman jumped from the tree and so did her husband not knowing what his wife had done. So he died but the woman survived. The men of Bunlap were very impressed by this permance and they began to practice such jumps in case they got in similar situation. This practice transmed into a ritual rich yam harvest and also proving manhood.  Bungee jumping as a sport started in New Zealand, probably in the 1970s. People attached thick elastic cords, called bungees, to their bodies. Then they jump off bridges or high buildings, falling fast through the air until the cord caught them, and then bounced back up and down a few times until coming to a stop.  Modern bungee jumping is usually done in a parking lot and people jump from a platm at the top of a crane. You can have bungees tied to your waist or ankles. There a large air cushion at the bottom that is supposed to catch you if the bungees break or if something goes very wrong. People who bungee jump say the thrill is like no other thrill. ;You have a feeling of accomplishment,; says one. ;It beats a roller coaster ride,; says another. One happy customer says, ;just a second you feel like youre going to die. It amazing.;  But there are many customers who are less than satisfied. In fact, more than a dozen people have got killed in bungee jumping accidents last year in the U.S.A. and Canada and many non-fatal accidents have been reported. This has promoted many countries and U.S. states to pass bans on bungee jumping. Many U.S. states are also passing laws imposing strict safety requirements on bungee jumping business.  Despite the dangers of bungee jumping, people still line up and pay lots of money to experience the death-challenging thrill. One couple even ended their wedding night by bungee jumping together in Atlantic City. The groom said, ;When Im flying through the air holding my wife in my arms and knowing she trusts me 0 percent, that is what love is all about.; 18683
