Canada's indigenous peoples dance in sacred regalia at 28th annual powwow

Mohawk, Metis and Iroquois women dance in sacred regalia at the 28th Echoes of a Proud Nation powwow, in Kahnawake, in the Canadian province of Quebec.

The heart-stopping moment a man steps into a flooded street to pull out a three-year-old girl caught in the torrent. The girl had been carried away by the flood after breaking free from her father’s grip. The incident occurred in Jodhpur, India, on July 19. Local media reports said the man had gone to draw money from an ATM with his daughter. By the time he was finished, it started raining heavily, forcing him to wait under a shelter. It continued to pour and after just one hour drains overflowed, turning roads into gushing streams. The man, had been carrying his daughter on his shoulder, but she slipped, fell into the water and was swept away by the current. The man, was also swept away as he went after her in desperation. A bystander, who had also taken refuge from the rain at a shop, saw their plight and stepped in to pull out the girl. The father also managed to find his feet and joined his daughter. Local police officials said the man had put his daughter’s life to risk by taking her out in inclement weather. But they said they had no further information and had not filed any complaint over the incident.

Indians go fishing at home after monsoon floods draw school of catfish

Many fish-loving families in southwest India are waking up to their favourite dinner visiting them at home. A family in Kottayam, in the state of Kerala was pleasantly surprised when a school of catfish swam directly into their living quarters, did a neat U-turn on the veranda and left the same way it entered. Due to heavy monsoon rain this year, a local river, Moovattupuzha, has entered towns and villages, flooding homes and sweeping in the surprises. A few enterprising individuals are fishing directly from their windows or doorsteps to find the catch of the day. Those who venture to the river are rewarded with bigger fish, which can be plucked from the stream with their bare hands. A few men went to the banks of Kuttyadi river in Kozhikode district and returned carrying several huge fish – many still gasping for breath - on their shoulders. A resident of Kottaya, 43-year-old Manoj Nair, 43, said, "this happens whenever rivers swell due to rains. Last year, I saw many casting nets from their doorsteps to catch fish."

This is what it looks like to be at the centre of a shark feeding frenzy

This is what it might look like if you found yourself at the centre of a shark feeding frenzy. The impressive clip was captured by attaching a camera to a "chumsicle" - which replicates the carcass of an animal - and then lowering it into shark-infested waters. As soon as the bait hits the seabed, sharks begin to circle and bite the "chumsicle". Within half an hour, not a scrap of food remains. The cool clip was captured in the Bahamas back in May.

Fire ball erupts from cake at Science Teachers 50th birthday party

A self-styled "nutty professor" from Australia surprised his science teacher colleague today (Saturday) with a birthday cake which shoots flames. "As part of the 50th birthday party for our... colleague, Corina, we made a birthday cake which erupted flames," explained Jacob Strickling. "Once the 50 candles had been ignited with a gas torch, the birthday girl had to blow hard on a rubber tube. This caused cooking flour to blow out of a funnel embedded in the cake. The cloud of fine flour particles was ignited by the candles resulting in a large ball of fire emanating from the cake," Strickling said. The cool clip was captured near Gosford in New South Wales. Aside from being a science teacher, Jacob Strickling is an amateur inventor who also runs the popular YouTube channel 'Make Science Fun'.

New footage shows devastating aftermath of July 16 lava bomb incident

New footage showed the devastating aftermath of the July 16 lava bomb incident in Hawaii that injured 23 people on a tour boat. The video is divided into three parts while the voice of a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory can be heard discussing the lava bomb incident throughout the clip. Mila Zinkova filmed the first part (00:00-00:57) on board a different tour boat on July 14. She filmed the boat that would eventually get hit by a lava bomb on July 16, which can be seen near the lava in this part of the clip. In the second part (00:58-04:30), Zinkova captured the devastating aftermath of the July 16 lava bomb incident. Passengers with injuries can be seen, along with some blood on a white sheet. The roof of the tour boat is damaged and parts of the boat are covered in black ash. In the third part (04:31-05:24), the damaged boat is seen on land on July 17.

Chopper flies through corrosive seawater plumes in Hawaii

Aerial footage from Hawaii shows huge plumes of corrosive seawater rising hundreds of feet into the air as a result of lava flowing into the sea. Footage filmed on Wednesday (July 18) from an open-door helicopter shows the effects of lava when it hits the sea, just two days after a lava bomb struck a tourist boat, injuring 23 passengers. In the clip, the helicopter flies through the smoke while another chopper flies past. The interaction of lava with the ocean creates laze, a seawater plume laden with hydrochloric acid and fine volcanic particles that can irritate the skin, the United States Geological Survey has said.

Forget Cape Canaveral, it's lift-off for this remote Scottish crofter community as UK builds first spaceport

In the famous classic Ealing Comedy "Whisky Galore," a remote community of crofters - that's Scots for farmers - had their lives changed by a ship which ran aground with a huge cargo of malt whisky. For the crofters of the coastal village of Melness in Sutherland on the north coast of Scotland, one might say it is "Rockets Galore" after the UK government announced plans to build the first spaceport in the UK on land nearby at Moihne - otherwise known as Melness Croft. The land is jointly owned by crofters from Melness, potentially earning them millions from the lucrative and sought-after orbit for satellites.

‘Look at those claws’: Bear raids bird feeder, scares cat outside Wisconsin home

A black bear raided a bird feeder and scared a cat while outside a home in Burnett County, Wisconsin, on June 29. In the video, a bear looks inside the window of a home while the filmer can be heard saying, “Oh my goodness.” The bear runs off only to return shortly to raid a bird feeder while giving a cat inside the home a big scare. "Look at those claws," the filmer says in the video. “I was working at my computer in my living room recliner when I noticed a black bear standing at my window, trying to dump the contents of our hummingbird feeder into his mouth,” the filmer said. “He then stuck around in our yard trying to find any other tasty morsels from our other bird feeders,” the filmer continued. “I started to video him and he came right up to our door, which I promptly locked!” “He then went back towards the hummingbird feeder and that's when our cat jumped up in the window for a glimpse,” the filmer said. “When the bear stood up again, our cat hissed and swatted at him. Then he smartly ran away.” “This was such an exciting, somewhat scary and rare occurrence,” the filmer said. “To catch a bear midday so close up and personal — I’m so glad I caught it on video!”

According to reports, officers stopped Gao suspecting he was unlicensed to sell the watermelons. Rather than receive a fine, he chose to smash his produce. He was later led away for questioning due to his extreme reaction.
