One-Year-Old Translates Mandarin Into English In Seconds

Young children are natural language acquirers and their brain allows them to pick up new language skills without conscious learning, unlike adolescents and adults. They have the ability to imitate pronunciation and work out the rules for themselves. Toddler brains are like sponges absorbing and processing new experiences and information at record speed. Learning a second language comes naturally at this age. Of course, mastering a new language is both fun and educational and can be a great family bonding activity. This parent decided to introduce bilingualism to her son and decided to expose him to both Mandarin and English from early age. A one-year-old boy was captured translating what his mum says in Mandarin into English in seconds in China.

Sitting in his high chair, the intelligent boy enthusiastically translates his mom’s words said in Mandarin. This creative mother has found the perfect way to entertain her child while teaching him new skills. Great job!

World's largest flower seen in peak bloom in Indonesia forest2m55s

World's largest flower seen in peak bloom in Indonesia forest

A rare Rafflesia flower has been discovered in peak bloom in a rainforest in Indonesia. Rafflesia flowers are reportedly among the largest in the world and only bloom for a few days before withering and dying. The flowers are not easily found and mainly grow in rainforests in Southeast Asia. This one was discovered in West Sumatra's Bengkulu province. According to Ade Putra, a local forestry officer, the flower was found by a local person on March 10 and was estimated to about three days old at that time and in perfect full bloom. Putra said: "This flower is part of the Rafflesia flower family but it's not [the more common] Rafflesia Arnoldy. Its name is tuan-mudae and they usually live in Malaysia forests. What distinguishes them is the shape of the hair inside the flower." Experts describe the plant as a parasitic plant. It has no visible stem, roots or leaves but threads that absorb nutrients from its host plant. Many people have given it the nickname corpse lily, because it emits an odour similar to rotting flesh that attracts insects to pollinate it.

Terrifying moment bull throws woman several feet into air

A woman survived after a raging bull threw her several feet into the air. A CCTV camera captured the terrifying incident that occurred on March 13 in Bharuch city, Gujarat, India. The video shows a woman, clad in a yellow saree, walking on the road. The bull trails her from a distance, scrapes by a scooter rider, before attacking her. The nearly 400-kg adult animal gores the unsuspecting woman with all its might and throws her into the air. The unfortunate woman does a mid-air somersault and crashlands on the road. People in the vicinity rushed her to a hospital, where the doctors treated her and said she was out of danger. Stray cattle have become a menace in many Indian cities. The ruling BJP government has banned the slaughter of cattle, which are treated as sacred animals in Hinduism. Many owners abandon the ageing or unproductive animals as they are banned from selling them for meat. A large number of these abandoned animals roam the cities fighting among themselves or attacking passers-by. ++CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN LOOPED++
