Watch: Man has Death Wish or He’s a Super Hero!

A man in South Africa stopped his car to film a local dust mini-tornado, what he caught on camera was crazy. These mini dust tornadoes are called dust devils and are nice phenomena to catch on film. However, the guy filming the video caught something much more film-worthy.

A local decided to field test the dust devil by entering it. I mean, why look when you can feel, right? Video below.

The filmmaker said that the dust devil appeared near the highway and he pulled over to capture it. However, he never expected to spot a daredevil who is courageous enough to test and experience what it feels like to be in the middle of it all! The nonchalant guy casually entered the dust devil without having second thoughts about what might happen to him! Is this man brave or crazy?!

Watch this impressive footage of a dust devil swirling near the main road while a daredevil decides to join in the fun by walking directly into it? Would you ever dare to follow this man’s footsteps or is this a ‘kids, don’t try this at home’ moment? Let us know in the comments below!

Must Listen: 2 Podcasts That Will Get You Thinking

The medium of radio changed the world in some very significant ways. Along with the railroad, it was one of the harbingers of an era in which we schedule every minute of our time. It helped kickstart the trend of globalization, by making communities bigger than the few people in a small radius. They made everyone a lot more conscious of what was going on in the world.

It might seem like radio has had its day in the sun and that the internet has taken over all its duties. However, a lot of people still listen to the radio. Podcasts, in particular, are a modern form of the medium, and those who listen to them know that there are those that have the power to change your perspective entirely.

It’s becoming easier to listen to podcasts and radio stations with the app Audials Radio (IOS). Audials Radio is innovative in the playback, recording, tagging and storage of music and podcasts, as even the free version has over 100,000 radio stations from around the world and 260,000 podcasts on board.

Audials Radio plays and records all desired media from around the world in MP3, tags recordings automatically and allows users to save them on the smartphone, tablet or in the cloud. A new version of the app is available with a new design and many comfort functions.

And you might well want to use it to listen to the following podcasts.

Ear Hustle

This podcast breaks all kinds of expectations. It is a collaboration between two inmates at San Quentin State Prison, Earlonne Woods and Antwan Williams, and a volunteer, Nigel Poor. It focuses on life in prison and what got them there. The two men are serving 31 years and 15 years, respectively, for robbery-related convictions. There’s an incredible rapport between the inmates and Poor, who is actually a visual artist. Together, they tell stories that are funny, insightful, touching, and which will change the way you think about convicted criminals.

Uncivil


Uncivil is a collaboration between Chenjerai Kumanyika and Jack Hitt, who tell lesser known stories about America’s Civil War. The former is black and the latter is white, which makes for some interesting differences in perspective, even if they obviously agree on all the basics. They remain true to the facts, without rewriting history to suit their own agendas or to attempt to spectacularize their stories. It’s well worth a listen, as you’ll not only be entertained but learn a lot about history as well.

Facebook Future: Mark Zuckerberg In front of the Senate

Many people were happy seeing Mark Zuckerberg appear in front of the Senate. “Finally Facebook will answer to authority!” or “His time has come” were most of the online comments.

Well, Mark has said he’s sorry, again. Fortunately, for him, most Facebook users don’t really care about the whole media noise created by… well, the media, and that’s for two reasons;

The first being the fact that when I post something on Facebook – it’s public. As you know it IS called – SOCIAL media and not private media. Second, I do not want to see advertising for adult diapers or women’s “stuff”, so I’m glad that Facebook knows who I am and what I want, so the ads I see will be aimed at me.


Zuckerberg was in front of the Senators for 5 hours, and there were some important issues we could all take from his answers;

Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook has no competitors. Which is a first step in toning down his activity a notch, maybe opening up to new competitors?

Mark could consider a paid ad-free version of Facebook in the future.

Mark is working hard on developing the Facebook AI technology to filter out hate speech, racist and other problematic content.

Zuckerberg gave a loud NO, when asked if Facebook obtains data via the phone’s microphone.

So next time you get an advertisement which is far away from you as pizza is from a diet, you’ll have [sg_popup id=”1″ event=”click”]Mark to[/sg_popup] thank.

Showbiz Rumors: Brad Pitt’s Secret New Girlfriend?

Finally, we get to meet Brad Pitt’s new partner. It’s been quite the secret these past few months, but the woman who has caught Brad’s (54) heart is named Neri Oxman (42), and she is an acclaimed architect and an MIT professor.

Yeah, yeah… they’re just friends… but according to “Page Six TV,” a source said that “Brad and Neri instantly hit it off because they share the same passion for architecture, design and art. This is best described as a professional friendship.”

Unfortunately, the source also added, “Their friendship has not turned into romance … as both are cautious and this is, again, more of a professional friendship, but Brad is very interested in spending more time with Neri, she is fascinating.” They are both working on an architectural project together and became very close friends.

Oxman is an American-Israeli architect and designer and considered the rock star of the architect world. She was married before to Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov. And Pitt is still finalizing his divorce from Angelina Jolie and they have even reached an agreement regarding their 6 children.

Here’s a recap on the Brangelina duo

Must Watch: Emperor Penguin Takes Selfie

The selfie-snapping animals are at it again. Two Emperor Penguins in Antarctica captured a short video of themselves. The black and white flightless birds are filmed closely inspecting the equipment after stumbling over it in the Australian research station on the ice-covered continent.

After coming across the camera which was left on the ice, the curious penguins inadvertently captured the selfie video. The Penguins took the opportunity to check out their reflections and it didn’t take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie.

For about half a minute, the two chirp and cock their heads inquisitively at the screen, before perking up and shaking their heads (and bellies) repeatedly.

FYI
Emperor Penguins are native to Antarctica, with the emperor being the largest of the 18 Penguin species. They’re also known to breed during the Antarctic winter when temperatures can drop down to -50C.

Selena Gomez and her Private Guards

When Selena Gomez started her REVIVAL tour a few months ago, she decided to capture her fan moment in every city she’d visit. It’s nice to see her connect that way with her biggest fans.

On several locations it was not possible for her to get out to meet fans, so she captured a fan moment on stage. She really does seem to like being with them.

Funny thing…

But when checking out the pictures from the backstage fan meetups, something jumps out. Maybe it jumps out only to ADHD people like me, anyway, the two guys holding the barrier are always the same two guys. it’s like they’re her personal barrier guards or something.

In any case, it’s nice to see. Selena and her private guards…

I can still see you…

Breakthrough: A New Medical Procedure Will Freeze Your Hunger

There is a new horizon (possibly) for those who suffer from failed diets and weight loss programs. An initial trial has shown that hunger signals to the brain could be stopped.

Stopping my brain from getting hunger signals?! Seems like a dream come true! Well, don’t take your shirt off yet… this procedure will probably be approved for use in a few years at best.

The procedure has only finished the safety check testing before a real trial, but “results are in” as they say. Safety testing is actually checking to see if the test itself is safe. If the test process is correct and nonhazardous.
So… in this pilot test researchers have shown good signs that freezing the nerve that carries our hunger signals to the brain could freeze hunger itself, helping us lose weight without a real downside.

Too good to be true?

Currently, it IS too good, and it IS true. But now, real medical trials need to be done to see long-term effects, side effects and how long does this treatment last.
This freezing of the nerve procedure is being done on other nerves to treat chronic pain. It’s called CryoablationThe men and women in the study had a BMI of 30-37 (categorized as obesity), but did not meet the criteria of a surgical intervention.

 

How does it work?

Doctors sedated the patients and inserted a needle into their backs using a CT as their guide. The needle was inserted into the posterior vagal trunk (don’t ask us what that means). Then the needle was filled with a freezing gas that froze the needle and its surroundings, including the nerve itself.
That freezing degenerates the part of the nerve and stops the signaling to the brain. It takes no more than 30 minutes and you’re out.

Initial Results?

Everyone in the initial trial reported a lowered appetite sensation. Remember, they are all considered obese.
53% of the patients reported “very much less appetite,” 30% said “much less appetite” and 17% reported “somewhat less appetite.” Overall, people had a 14% decrease in their excess BMI.
The researchers say that it is not supposed to help on its own, but it will make calorie restriction much easier.

Will I ever be hungry?

The nerve freeze isn’t a permanent procedure. The nerve will fully grow back after 10 months, give or take 2 months. The head researcher said: “We are able to do this because the body [also] has other backup systems” for cueing hunger.

If You Fear the Deep… Don’t Watch (But you should)

If you’ve ever heard about anglerfish, then you should know that they are a weird looking family of fish. One would even say ugly or scary. Well, your imagination is not far from the truth, as what you see topside in museums and online is only part of the monster.

This video shows, for the first time, a pair of anglerfish, male and female, attached. You can’t quite see the second fish as it is almost like Earth next to The Sun, but it is attached to the bigger one’s body.

Now… which one do you think the male is, and which is the female?

Yes, in nature, female rules….

Celebrities Who Gave Up Their Biggest Love

When you become a parent, you discover the feeling of protection. A feeling that you are willing to do anything in your power for the good of your baby. Unfortunately, there are circumstances in which those instincts are suppressed, while in other cases, they are stronger than any other. In both cases, the outcome is the same – babies who were given up for adoption.

The love is still there, but something else makes the call. Some of these stories have an amazingly happy ending! The most important thing to remember is that we cannot judge these celebrities, at least not until we were in their shoes.

Kate Mulgrew

Now you know Kate Mulgrew from the hit TV series Orange Is The New Black but it wasn’t like that all the time. She was once unknown and she worked hard to get to where she is now.
Back in 1977, when she was just starting out her career, mainly in soap operas, she got pregnant but didn’t want to marry the guy.

Orange is the new mom

So, to let herself get a good start she put her daughter for adoption.
