Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 2 If you’ve lived in the Bay Area long enough, you’ve probably heard someone say that homes here are a great investment because prices never go down. I thought I’d never hear the second part of that statement again after Bay Area home prices fell by more than a third during the 2007-09 Great Recession, but a real estate agent told me that just a few weeks ago. Patrick Carlisle, chief market analyst for the Compass real estate brokerage, said he still hears it a lot too. For those who never bought a home near the peak of a housing market, or tried to sell one during a trough, it may seem as though prices never fall, because over the long term they tend to go up, at least as fast as inflation.

Extreme heat this year has triggered wildfires, drought and melting glaciers. Less expectedly, it’s also revealed some weird and dark things about our past — shipwrecks, corpses, ghost villages, ornamental gardens and ancient cities. Here’s a look at some of those discoveries. Roman remains Italy’s drought has revealed artifacts from World War II and a glimpse of life under Nero. Months without rain and an earlier-than-usual halt in flows from melting snow in the Alps depleted the River Po — Italy’s longest river — to its lowest level in 70 years. The dried-up riverbed revealed previously hidden World War II-era wreckage such as a German tank and cargo ships. In Rome, meanwhile, drought sapped the River Tiber and unveiled a bridge that’s thought to have been built during Emperor Nero’s rule. This summer’s extremely hot and dry conditions in Italy forced the government to declare a state of emergency in July. Spanish ghost village A town stuck in the early 1990s has … [Read more...] about Lost villages, ancient ruins and shipwrecks uncovered in extreme heat
