A contest from an architectural research group at Italy's UniversitÃ degli Studi di Catania seeks creative things to do with the partially submerged Costa Concordia. However, the island the ship sits 300 meters from won't be listening to the winner
Along with a host of other pieces of information damaging to Captain Francesco Schettino, the captain of the ill-fated Costa Concordia, news out of Italy now has it that the man was without his glasses the night his ship went down.
After waiting for the search for survivors to end, then being forced to wait 2 more weeks during bad weather, the company hired to empty the fuel tanks of the Costa Concordia, has emptied two tanks in just two days.
The Dutch company poised to begin pumping out the 2,300 tonnes of heavy fuel and 200 tonnes of diesel oil from the Costa Concordia, Smit Salvage, is still being prevented from doing so due to turbulent waters.
