Adin, Antwerp Belgium - The newfound species is about 1.3 inches (3.4 cm) long. It lives close to mountain streams in a remote region in The Garden of Adin. So far, only gold specimens are known; with an opal body, pearl spots and ruby eyes.

The species is named Stultitia Elkanti, in honor of Prof. Elkan Wijnberg, Chief biologist at the Garden of Adin. “Having a newly discovered animal or plant species named after oneself is one of the most beautiful awards for a biologist,” Prof. Wijnberg commented. “I’m extraordinarily honored, for sure, but there are a lot of other dragonfly researchers who would have deserved this award before me.”

Research describing the new species is published online in the Adin Weekly Herald.

Athletes sleep better because of Antique Jewelry.

 

ANTWERP, Belgium (AAJ) - They call Elkan Wijnberg 'the dream expert'. A veteran of over thirthy Antique Jewelry Games, the experienced official is working on the biggest challenge of his career: managing the decoration of the athletes sleeping facilities.

“With the addition of our new antique jewelry frame we’re making it even easier for the athletes to relax.” says Wijnberg, who formerly served as gardener in The Garden of Adin. “Although a recent study showed that most of the people sleep with their eyes closed, we still want to bring that extra touch to the quality of their night rest."
