First Interstellar Asteroid Wows Scientists3m16s

First Interstellar Asteroid Wows Scientists

Scientists were surprised and delighted to detect --for the first time-- an interstellar asteroid passing through our solar system. Additional observations brought more surprises: the object is cigar-shaped with a somewhat reddish hue. The asteroid, named 'Oumuamua by its discoverers, is up to one-quarter mile (400 meters) long and highly-elongated—perhaps 10 times as long as it is wide. That is unlike any asteroid or comet observed in our solar system to date, and may provide new clues into how other solar systems formed.

Diver Shares A Magical Bond With Spotted Moray Eel1m11s

Diver Shares A Magical Bond With Spotted Moray Eel

When famed Australian diver and ocean conservationist, Valerie Taylor first located the home of a spotted moray eel near Banda Island, Indonesia, she tried to befriend the eel by offering fish. The eel instinctively hid after seeing the human approach. However, Taylor was persistent and tried a few more times over the course of several years, but to no avail. One day, the eel came out and slithered around Taylor, accepting her piscine offering. It didn’t just come to receive the treat, it also swam around her and let Taylor pet it. Ever since, the six-foot long, brown-spotted eel, which Taylor named "Honey”, seemed to recognize and approach her, and Taylor believes that it enjoy being held and scratched. Taylor managed to befriend this spotted creature and when the eel sees Taylor coming, even after years, the eel comes out across the sand and swims over to her. The eel grew less shy as it became accustomed to Taylor. They also tend to be curious animals, and like to "check things out," which is what appears to be happening in this video. Although eels aren’t generally aggressive unless their territory is invaded, feeding eels is not a good idea. That’s because moray eels have razor-sharp teeth, and not the best eyesight. They also possess a second set of jaws that normally lingers in the animal’s gullet, but when feeding can project forward and pull food inward, like something out of the movie Alien.Occasionally, feeding a wild moray eel has resulted in accidents, such as one case where a man got his thumb bitten off by a moray.

NASA Releases Incredible Visual Simulating 2017's Hurricanes2m12s

NASA Releases Incredible Visual Simulating 2017's Hurricanes

You can see the atmosphere by tracking what the wind carries. Tiny particles known as aerosols are carried by the air around the globe, such as smoke, dust, and sea salt which are transported by the air across the globe, making visible weather patterns and other normally invisible physical processes. This visualization uses data from NASA satellites, combined with mathematical models in a computer simulation allow scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season. One of the most noticeable things about the simulation is how far the particles can travel. For example, smoke from fires in the Pacific Northwest gets caught in a weather pattern and pulled all the way across the US and over to Europe. The visualization also shows dust from the Sahara blow into the Gulf of Mexico. To understand the impacts of aerosols, scientists need to study the process as a global system. During the hurricane season in 2017, tropical storms and hurricanes were visible in the visualization because of the sea salt that is captured by the storms. Strong winds at the surface lift the sea salt into the atmosphere and the particles are incorporated into the storm. Computer simulations using NASA's Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS), a family of mathematical models, allow researchers to see how different processes fit together and evolve as a system. Combined with data from NASA's Earth observing satellites, the supercomputer simulations enhance scientific understanding of specific chemical, physical and biological processes.

Fireball Streaking Across Phoenix Lights Up The Sky29s

Fireball Streaking Across Phoenix Lights Up The Sky

The city government of Phoenix caught something rather extraterrestrial on its city camera which turned the night sky into daylight. A mysterious bright flash tore across the Phoenix sky sparking fresh fears of UFOs and alien invaders. Watch what the Phoenix City Cam captured on November 14th, 2017 at 8:30pm. Definitely a meteor? Astronomers say that this fireball was a tiny chunk of space rock burning up in our atmosphere. The remarkable object was spotted by numerous people in the area, with reports streaming in from Arizona and the surrounding states, including California, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico. Something brilliant flew across the Phoenix sky and was captured on camera. The stunning video, captured with a Nest security camera, shows the moment an object appears over the city. At first appears a tiny orb in the night sky, before quickly blossoming to become a massive flash that illuminates the clouds. Astronomers say the bright light that streaked across the night sky Tuesday was "almost certainly" a meteor. A meteorite is a solid piece of debris from an object, such as a comet, asteroid, or meteoroid, that originates in outer space and survives its passage through the atmosphere to reach the surface of Earth or another planet. When the object enters the atmosphere, various factors like friction, pressure, and chemical interactions with the atmospheric gases cause it to heat up and radiate that energy. It then becomes a meteor and forms a fireball, also known as a shooting star or falling star.

Creepy Man Gropes Woman In Elevator – Doesn’t Realize She’ll Take Matters Into Her Own Hands34s

Creepy Man Gropes Woman In Elevator – Doesn’t Realize She’ll Take Matters Into Her Own Hands

An incredible video has emerged online of a woman knocking out a man who tried to molest her in an elevator in China. CCTV footage from late at night on April 24. Numerous scandals can be prevented by eradicating the culture of silence which allows these indiscretions to keep happening. These incidents lead to a lot of anger and create an appetite for justice or payback towards the offenders. Even though it is very satisfying to watch and see the outcome of this video, we should keep in mind that not every case of assault ends in fairness or retribution. Sometimes things don’t work out and the molesters don’t learn their lesson. Let’s hope that the story of this elevator molester getting beaten up by a woman who slaps him in the face and kicks him in the crotch will serve as a painful lesson for all those offenders out there to beware! Footage shows a woman standing in an elevator checking her phone, moments before the man in the elevator begins acting inappropriately by sneaking behind her back and sliding his hand onto her shoulder. At this point, the woman has had enough and is ready to teach him a lesson. This woman is obviously trained and knows how to fight, so quickly puts the man in knock down position, after which she peacefully walks away. Anyone who thinks they can intimidate others and get away with it is wrong, just like this man was wrong when he didn’t expect this woman to defend herself as effectively as she did!

Pedestrian Runs Into Traffic And Gets Hit By A Tesla Model X55s

Pedestrian Runs Into Traffic And Gets Hit By A Tesla Model X

Police are seeking a pedestrian who was hit by a car and ran off, because apparently, it can be a hit and run when the person who is hit runs off too! This incident happened in Bellevue, Washington at 148th Avenue Northeast and Northeast Eighth Street, where it was captured on traffic camera footage. The CCTV footage shows the pedestrian, who seems to be a juvenile with a black hoodie on and holding a skateboard, waiting at the cross section for the light to turn green. The pedestrian patiently waits for a gap in the traffic, but decides “to hell with it” and charges across the five lanes of traffic. What he failed to see, though, was the electric Tesla Model X SUV in the fourth lane, driving right towards him The two traffic participants only graze each other, as the juvenile gets struck with the side of the black Tesla SUV and is sent swirling to the ground. The young man doesn’t waste another moment on the road, he just picks himself and his skateboard off the tarmac and runs off in the distance The traffic camera footage is from Bellevue Police Case # 17-59469. If you know the identity of the pedestrian in the video, please contact the Bellevue Police Department at 425-577-5656 Credit: Bellevue, WA Police

Baby Thinks The Word 'Donkey' Is Hilarious41s

Baby Thinks The Word 'Donkey' Is Hilarious

Laughing is contagious and sometimes so infective, we can barely breathe! Sometimes it is something so mundane and simple that will set us off and there is nothing we can do, other than hold onto your belly and wait for it to pass, while hoping not to get the hiccups. In the world of good laughs, it has been said that the sound of the letter K is the one that really sets things in motion. Words like “cucumber” have the magical properties to pop a good belly laugh out of anyone, but this tiny baby boy has a very different trigger. While watching his son Nathan sit in mommy’s lap, a dad had the ultimate discovery about the world of babies. The word ‘donkey’ cracks them the heck up! They might have had a hysterical fit off camera immediately before this clip was taken, because as soon as dad called Nathan’s name, the baby started laughing. But when dad says ‘donkey’, the kid cracked a smile so wide, he could swallow us whole before we noticed, because he is so darn cute! Maybe it’s the K in “donkey” that does the trick, or just looking at the silly looking animal. We think that the whole word is worthy of peeing in your nappy. Whatever it is, we can’t catch a breath of it either! Credit: malcmcg1

Angel Nurse Comforts Dying Patient With Her Favorite Song2m21s

Angel Nurse Comforts Dying Patient With Her Favorite Song

A family from Nashville, Tennessee, shared this movies video of a nurse singing a dying patient’s favorite song in an attempt to comfort her. In the moving video we see Ms. Olivia, as they lovingly call her, singing "Dancing in the sky" by Canadian twins Dani and Lizzy to Margaret Smith. The 63-year-old woman was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville because of her rapidly declining health. She had been suffering from liver cancer for about a year and doctors said she was too sick to survive a transplant. It was Margaret’s daughter Megan who recorded and posted the video of the touching moment on her Facebook page, where it’s been viewed nearly three million times. Megan says: “Ms Olivia, she would sing this to Margaret when ever Margaret asked her. Never would Olivia ever say ‘give me a minute’, or ‘I would but I don’t have time’. If all nurses would take the time and care for patients like Ms. Olivia I believe we would see a lot more healing!!!!! The definition of a nurse to our family would be Olivia.......” The lyrics of the song go: “Oh-oh, I, I hope you’re dancing in the sky And I hope you’re singing in the angel’s choir And I hope the angels know what they have I’ll bet it’s so nice up in heaven since you arrived” Music: "Dancing in the sky" by Dani and lizz Credit: Crystal Hamilton Roberts

This Giant Panda Fail Compilation Really Made Us Laugh2m44s

This Giant Panda Fail Compilation Really Made Us Laugh

If you ever wondered why the Giant Panda is labeled as a vulnerable species according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), we think we may have found the answer. A compilation of clips from the Giant Panda enclosure at Toronto ZOO shows general panda-monium, as both Panda adults and cubs slide, roll, tumble and even nose-dive around the enclosure. Yikes! In 2003, scientists from Zoo Atlanda in Chengdu, and the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding published a study that described trends in the behavior of giant panda cubs. Among other findings, the study confirmed that falling was a normal and expected part of the play of the giant panda cubs being reared by their mother. So while the cubs' antics may seem painful, falling over is in fact a normal part of play for the animals. 'We at the Toronto Zoo wanted to show you just how promising the development of Canada's first giant panda cubs has been over the last 24 months,' the ZOO said in a statement. So, if you ever feel a bit down, just look up this video compilation titled ‘Panda Opera’ and we assure you it will cheer you up! The compilation was released to coincide with the cubs' second birthday. You are most welcome! Credit to 'Toronto Zoo'. http://www.torontozoo.com

Playful Baby Rhino Adorably Pesters His Mom19s

Playful Baby Rhino Adorably Pesters His Mom

September 22 is World Rhino Day and we’re pretty sure this is the only video you’ll need to see that will get your heart flutter with love for this majestic beast. The Chester Zoo in Cheshire, England captured this adorable footage just in time to celebrate the big day, showing rhino mom Zuri and her uncooperative calf Ike in their enclosure. The baby rhino playfully jumps around and on his mom, seeking attention, but mom simply brushes him off because, well, it is World Rhino Day and she deserves some downtime. Ike is one of two endangered Eastern black rhino calves born only weeks apart at this ZOO earlier this year and, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), it is believed that less than 650 of these animals now remain in the wild across their native Africa. The whipe out of around 95% of the world’s rhino population can be accredited to the surge in illegal poaching, driven by a global increase in demand for rhino horn to supply the traditional Asian medicine market. The ZOO’s Africa Field Programmes Coordinator Stuart Nixon said: “The IUCN estimates that, on average, almost two rhinos have been killed every day in Africa for nine straight years and they could be extinct in as little 10 years.” “Rhinos need protecting, not poaching,” says Nixon.

These Sworn Natural Enemies Make For A Priceless Rescue Trio1m13s

These Sworn Natural Enemies Make For A Priceless Rescue Trio

If you put a dog, cat and rat together in the same room, most people would expect chaos to ensue, because that is what cartoons have been teaching us since the beginning of time. But Sasha the dog, Jack the cat and Tweaks the rat recently turned up at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society (OAHS) in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and the three of them are surprisingly best friends. The trio of otherwise sworn natural foes were brought to the shelter by their owner at the beginning of March. "They had to downsize their home, and they weren't able to take the three animals with them, so they brought them here," Cheryl Rosenthal, communications and education coordinator at OAHS, told The Dodo. "A lot of people would say, 'Why would you do that?' But not every place will accept pets, let alone three of them." Upon their arrival at OAHS, the animals had to get medical examinations and Jack was first in line. But when they got him in the examination room, his became frightened and not very cooperative. Someone from the staff suggested to bring Sasha in and that changed the scared kitty’s behavior. Jack relaxed because he knew his buddy was right there for him. After seeing how closely bonded Jack and Sasha were, and with the owner telling staff that the three all got along well, the shelter staff knew they had to keep them in the same enclosure. The Rat Pack, as they are lovingly known, found their forever home with Kathy Berens and her daughter. Credit to 'Oshkosh Area Humane Society'.

English Couple Have An Incredible Encounter With Friendly Manatee26s

English Couple Have An Incredible Encounter With Friendly Manatee

A kayak touring company, very appropriately called Get Up And Go Kayaking, rents out unique crystal clear kayaks on their tours, so that tourists can experience nature around them in 360 view. But during one tour in their 100% see-through kayaks, a couple from Britain experienced something that only Mother Nature can provide - and up close and personal encounter with one very friendly manatee! The mammal was so accustomed to seeing humans, that he lingered around until they stopped, so that he can get his complimentary belly rubs. On the company’s Facebook page is the original video, which caption says: “This manatee encounter was a special one! “Arthur” the manatee followed us around for nearly 35 minutes wanting to get rubbed. He rolled over to let this couple from England give him a pet on the belly. What an experience - not sure who loved it more, Arthur, or our guests!” West Indian Manatee, or Florida Manatee, was placed on the Endangered Species List in the 1970s, when there were only several hundred left, and has been of great conservation concern to federal, state, private, and nonprofit organizations to protect these species from natural and human-induced threats like collisions with boat propeller blades. On March 30, 2017, the US Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced the federal reclassification of the manatee from endangered to threatened as the number of sea cows had increased to over 6,000.

After 28 Years, Police Officer Makes His Retiring Call – Then His Son’s Voice Comes On The Radio

Reaching retirement is a thing to be celebrated, because after long years of servitude in your profession, you have finally earned the right to relax and enjoy life. This is especially true for the brave protectors of the law and order. But after decades of engagement, the moment can also be a sad one; a big part of your life is changing and you have to say your goodbyes to people who have been more than co-workers. Salem City Police Sgt. Douglas Hogate Sr. was finishing his last day on the job before retirement. He announced his final Code 3 - signing off - but little did he know that a very special someone was on the other end of that police radio to send him off. The 911 dispatch operator was none other than his son, Douglas Hogate Jr., and he had a special message for his dad listening. “It is with great pleasure to announce that as of 1800 hours on this date, after 28 years of service, my father, Salem City Police Sgt. Douglas Hogate Sr., Badge #612, is retiring and is giving his final Code 3,” the Hogate Jr. said. “It is my honor as Salem County PST Douglas Hogate Jr. to acknowledge his Code 3 to the greatest man I know. Salem City Police Sgt. Douglas Hogate Sr., Badge #612, you are officially Code 3 at 1800 hours.” Douglas Sr. couldn’t keep his eyes from tearing up after hearing his boy’s endearing words. The police force is certainly going to miss having such an amazing man on their team. Credit to 'Salem County 9-1-1 Center.

Mom Moves Into Care Home To Look After 80-Year-Old Son

They say a child is an 18-year commitment but everyone knows it lasts much longer than that – especially for 98-year-old Ada Keating. Ada has been living with her eldest son Tom forever, since he never married. Tom had been living in Moss View care home in Liverpool since 2016 and now she’s decided to move in to help look after him. The mom and son are inseparable long into both their retirements and love spending time together, especially watching Emmerdale. You can really see the warmth and affection between the two as they discuss their daily routine: “I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I’ll go and say good morning to him,” the former auxiliary nurse, said. Tom, who was a painter and decorator, said he was happy to have his mother at the care home. “They’re very good here and I’m happy to see my mom more now that she lives here.” When the Liverpool Echo asked Ada about her and her son's unusual arrangement she responded, 'you never stop being a mom!' Care home manager Philip Daniels confirms that the pair are never without each other. “It’s very rare to see mothers and their children together in the same care home and we certainly want to make their time together as special as possible,” he told the Echo.
