Watch: Artist Creates Purr-Fect Mural

When a person loves something with all their being, they tend to show that off. This is especially true for cat lovers and they can be the worst. Cats on their clothes (no, we don’t mean the hair), cats on their jewelry, cats on their eye glasses, even on their walls!

What is great about that is it can be a form of art that will stay with you forever. Some like it painted on a canvas and framed in a delicate, ornate frame. Others like it as a mural, directly on the wall.

One such mural was painted by freelance illustrator and graphic designer Stephanie Ho. The Temasek Polytechnic graduate worked as an in-house designer with two different companies before heading out on her own path, so that she can design things like this big little project.

A cat-loving couple from Singapore commissioned a mural from Stephanie that will demonstrate just how much they love cats. Armed with Nippon Odorless All-in-One paint, Stephanie took a total of six hours to draw a meowtain of cats next to a big window in their Build-to-Order apartment.

The couple had one special requirement for the meowtain though – that it would include the Labrador from the husband’s family and the Shih Tzu that the wife used to have.

Stephanie took due diligence to record her creative process as she begins drawing the cats from the ground up. Each cat has her own personality, just like in real life! We think it’s meowvellous, and looks completely worth the S$1,000 the couple paid for it!

Microsoft Brings An End To Fake News?

Social media feeds are positively choked with fake news sources from all sides, leaving readers and viewers distrustful and confused.  Now, a new app from the Microsoft Edge browser called NewsGuard claims to weed out the false news sources.

The app will use color coding, with “red” indicating a high probability of being a false news source and “green” being a safe site. The app will come pre-installed in its browser.

Fake news as a recognized term has only been around for a few years, but the concept of fake news predates the term by centuries. It has been known by the term “yellow journalism,” and has always involved spreading propaganda and self-serving information to the masses.  In fact, yellow news has been credited with getting the US involved with the Spanish-American War.

The NewsGuard App

NewsGuard, according to Microsoft, isn’t intended to be a way to censor news or infringe on free speech.  The intention is to give readers the information they need to properly understand the reliability of what they are reading and help them decide if they should share the news source on social media, per Microsoft’s corporate vice president of security and trust, Tom Burt.

The app itself isn’t new, but it was something that had to be manually downloaded and installed by its users.  It allows flexibility for its users to set up their own filters while maintaining its warning color system.  The app currently only works for US and large international news sources and sites.

Wall Street Journalist and publisher Gordon Crovitz is now a CEO of NewsGuard.  He explains, “We’re delighted to be able to reach millions of people through Microsoft Edge for mobile, giving news consumers more information about the sources of news they see online based on basic journalistic criteria of credibility and transparency.”

NewsGuard uses experienced journalists to vet companies and their news articles.  They work with The Information founder, Jessica Lessin, General Michael Hayden, former CIA director, and other highly seasoned professionals.  The news sources are broken down and labeled according to their content, credibility, ownership, and sources of financing.

A few examples of how various cites would be labeled include:

RT: This Russian news site is a well-known source of Russian propaganda.  NewsGuard will label this as “proceed with caution.”
The Daily Mail:  This is a British news source, and NewsGuard warns its readers that it has had to pay damages for false reporting on several high-profile stories.
The New York Times:  This is an American news source that is well known for having influence on public debate and will be labeled this way by NewsGuard.

This tool is one of the first of its kind, but with the bombardment of fake news all over social media, it’s likely that NewsGuard will be the prototype for many more.

Russia Plans To Unplug For War

Sometime around April 19, 2019, Russians will find themselves without internet in an experiment to see the effects of cyberwarfare on the country.

The Russian government is floating the experiment as a way to justify future plans of disconnecting the country’s internet from the global internet.  Every country across the globe is connected via the internet, and although some countries strictly censor the information citizens have access to, Russia would like to go one step farther and disconnect entirely.

If the experiment in April is a success, it means that Russia could “survive” being its own internet entity and being disconnected from the world wide web.

Internet Censorship

ZDNet reports that if Russia were to unplug from global internet access, all web traffic would need to be monitored by Roskomnazor, the country’s telecom regulator, to ensure that all communication stays within Russia and to block any sites or content not approved for internet users in the country.

Russia has been taking strides to protect itself from internet cyberattacks.  It introduced the Digital Economy National Program last year, aiming to protect its infrastructure in the face of an attack, and has concluded that remaining its own internet entity would ensure the county remains protected.

In 2017, the Russian site Izvestia claimed that the county was planning on routing 95% of its internet traffic locally by the year 2020.  The idea is problematic, and officials are trying to work out solutions to keep internet traffic flowing smoothly.

Many are concerned that Russia is using this as a ploy to keep outside information from reaching citizens, in the same way that China uses its firewalls to track content and censor all information seen on the internet, blocking citizens from any contact with outside world and events.

On the surface, Russia’s experiment is a solution for the very real threat of cyberwarfare, but it has the potential for significant governmental oversight and abuse.

Watch: Scuba Divers Amazed By Smart Fish

Our oceans are full of mystery and magnificent creatures. They continually amaze us with their intelligence and understanding.

We have long thought of ourselves as being the only species with the capacity for complex thought, but if we truly pay attention to the animals around us, we can see that they are smarter than we give them credit for.

These scuba divers have descended to 70 feet below the waves and perched on a ledge near Darwin’s Arch, one of the most famous dive sites in the Galapagos Islands.

They have come to see hammerhead sharks and whale sharks that cruise past these islands on the ocean currents. They will watch as if they are in front of the world’s biggest IMAX screen.

Fishy Behaviour

As the divers sat and watched, a Mexican hogfish decided to hang around with them too. It swam around and looked at them curiously. It even swam under one of the divers when hammerhead sharks were close.

It seemed to fully understand that humans were nothing to be frightened of. But then it did something very surprising. One of the divers noticed that the fish was staring at a small rock and then staring at her.

The fish moved back and forth to her and then to the rock in front of her hands. The fish was acting so oddly that the diver beside her began to film the fish instead of looking for whale sharks and hammerheads.

It first appeared that the fish liked the diver. Eventually realizing that the fish was returning to the same rock repeatedly, she wondered if something under the rock was making the fish excited.

As she reached out to lift the rock, the fish darted in front of it and stared intently. To her surprise, as she lifted the rock, she found a baby octopus underneath.

This was a thrilling sight for the divers and it was obvious that the fish had seen or smelled the creature hiding beneath the rock. It was also possible that the octopus had been eating something that smelled interesting to the Mexican hogfish.

The octopus was far too big for the hogfish to eat, so it merely watched as the divers filmed it out in the open.

Fish become used to divers very quickly and they often understand that humans will not try to harm them, but to try to communicate with a diver and signal to a diver that something is under a rock would require more complex thought and understanding than we once believed they were capable of.

If the fish was truly hoping that the diver would lift the rock, that’s even more surprising. Yet, we see this sort of behavior constantly between groupers and scuba divers who spear hunt for lionfish.

The groupers will actually locate the lionfish and stare into the hiding spots until the diver responds. The more we pay attention to the animals around us, the more we see that we have a lot to learn about them.

Watch: Surprising Best Friends

This is the heartwarming saga of Jupiter the Impala and his little human friend little Oliver. The orphaned impala was brought to live at the Free to Be Wild Sanctuary in Zimbabwe, where he met baby Oliver. The two have been best friends ever since.

We can understand when dogs and other domesticated animals remember people. We hear all the time about cats and dogs that travel long distances to return to their homes, after being stranded or lost in faraway places.

But the Impala is a wild animal, and we don’t expect such creatures to be friendly with the human species. Yet, here it is, kissing the small human child it has befriended a couple of years before.

Up Close And Personal

The scene is full of warmth and heart and raises questions about how closely all living things are related. In the wild there are strict rules about who’s a predator and who’s prey.

If you take away the need to hunt or be hunted from the equation, it brings everyone much closer. Animals that once instinctively ran away from us will now sidle up to us, and even show some affection.

Emotional Impala

These watershed moments teach us that animals are emotional creatures capable of understanding and love. It’s quite amazing to realize that living things so seemingly far apart can actually be so close.

Even though impalas don’t speak in a human tongue, they are still capable of communicating in the universal language of love. If you were ever one of those who hunted impala, you might be inclined to give up your rifle, or perhaps just aim it at artificial targets after watching this.

Even though the Impala is so much bigger than Oliver, not to mention that he sports dangerous looking horns that any predator in the wild must be wary of, he’s actually very gentle with the human child, kissing Oliver, and patiently accepting of Oliver ‘s little hands reaching toward its muzzle.

Oliver’s parents are amused by the interaction, as they obviously know something about the relationship that we don’t. The two aren’t new at this; theirs is a recurring tryst, but a lifelong and permanent friendship.

We can take away important lessons here, that whether you are two-legged or four, none of us are aliens on Planet Earth. We all belong here, sharing the great blue marble with divergent physical forms. We have a lot more in common than meets the eye.

Unusual Spots To Up Your Insta Game

These days, it has become a regular thing to take photos close to the Eiffel tower, the Hollywood sign, or even the Golden Gate Bridge. And if you’re one that likes to stand out, here are three classic locations to grow your Instagram audience.

Atlanta’s Edgewood Avenue

Edgewood Avenue, located in downtown Atlanta is a perfect blend of culture and creativity that puts Atlanta in a class of its own. With notable places like Killer Mike’s barbershop which they call The SWAG Shop, this area clearly separates itself.

Also, there are several concert venues on the avenue, so from the great lighting and crowds, you can take great pictures while listening to your favorite artists play. Another prominent point on the street is a quirky ping-pong bar which was established by an ex-nun. For real! You should check it out.

Boston’s Acorn Street

A trip to Acorn Street is nothing different from going back in time to colonial America. Though this cobblestone street is not so wide, it boasts an amazing scenic view which resulted from the historic brick homes on both sides. There is no place for modern architecture in this street, as every home still wears a complete look of ancient but lovely architecture.

Several flower pots sit in front of the homes, with tiny greenery just enough to give your picture perfect background. Acorn Street is situated in the middle of Beacon Hill, a well-known Boston neighborhood that was once home to abolitionists several hundreds of years ago.

Philadelphia’s Fountain Street Steps

Located in the middle of Fairmont Park, the Fountain Street Steps enjoys a ravishing decoration with a pretty mosaic pattern. The Street Steps had been there from time, but it just received a nice touch-up from locals when graffiti and non-native plants were about to outshine the native plants.

At the end of the steps is a beautiful fountain, with native trees all around the area. The Fountain Street Steps is not only amazing for how it looks but because of the story behind it. The Steps are representations of a joint community effort despite the troubles that it faced.

The caption of your picture on these steps would be quite educative and engaging to your followers.

Now that you know these locations, make a move to get to these points and give your Instagram followers that much-needed engagement!

Going, Going, Gone! Moon Rocks Sold For 600K!

Most of us will never experience exploring outer space to discover it’s many mysteries. Outer space and the oceans, now known as the “Blue Planet”, are the only two true final frontiers.

There are those of great wealth who are trying to make plans for commercial space flights which only goes to show how very enticing outer space really is.

A Piece Of The Moon

This brings us to the subject of this post.  What if you could actually have a piece of space in your hand?  Moon rocks have become a very strong attraction and people will pay almost anything to own one.  Well, just recently, a moon rock sold at auction in Boston for 600K!!

You might wonder why it sold for such a huge price tag.  Well, the average meteorite will be the size of a golf ball or a walnut. They are really small after entering our atmosphere because they are traveling so fast and are burned up in the process.

These meteorites are not exactly plentiful so you don’t have a lot of options for getting your hands on one. This particular lunar meteorite came in at an amazing 12 pounds which is extremely rare!

This 12-pound meteorite was put up for auction by RR Auction in Boston, MA and sold for $612,500 to someone representing the Tam Chuc Pagoda complex, located in the Ha Nam Province in Vietnam.

Where Was This Moon Rock Found?

You might think it was brought back to earth from the moon by an astronaut but you’d be wrong.  When astronauts collect and bring back rocks from the moon, these rocks become government property.

As it’s impossible for you to jump on a flight to the moon, the only way you could possibly come into possession would be right here on Earth.

This particular rock was found by Aerolite Meteorites in a remote region in Northwest Africa. It’s believed this meteorite landed on Earth thousands of years ago.

Paraphrasing Geoff Notkin, CEO of Aerolite Meteorites, they knew the minute they saw this rock it was extraordinarily unusual and about as close to a once-in-a-lifetime find as you can get.

Now Known As The Moon Puzzle

Even though the original meteorite weighed 12 pounds, it’s actually broken up into 6 different pieces with the largest weighing 6 pounds. That’s how it got its nickname the Moon Puzzle because the pieces all fit together just like pieces of a puzzle.

Robert Livingston, president of RR Auctions, said he was so proud to have the meteorite at the auction and believes this Moon Puzzle will be a great inspiration for all students interested in science for generations to come.

Another unique quality of this meteorite, it has a partial fusion crust which simply means as it entered Earth’s orbit, it burned.  In most cases, people will not usually pay 600K for an object that is burned and broken but then again, there are not a lot of meteorites available for the public.

I would have to ask myself if I had that kind of money, would I spend it on a damaged moon rock? Maybe I would do just that!

In the meantime, all we can do, for now, is fantasize and try to imagine what it would be like to travel to outer space.  We can only wonder if reincarnation really exists and come back as Captain Kirk and Spock traveling at the speed of light on the Starship Enterprise!!

Most of us will never experience exploring outer space to discover it’s many mysteries. Outer space and the oceans, now known as the “Blue Planet”, are the only two true final frontiers.

Robot Hotel Fires Half Its Robotic Workers

If you are concerned about losing your job in hospitality to artificial intelligence soon, there is no need to worry.

A hotel in Nagasaki, Japan called the Hen-na (“Strange”) Hotel ‘fired’ more than 50% of the 243 robots working there because instead of providing benefits to guests, they turned out to be quite inconvenient.

The hotel used robots to check-in guests, take luggage to rooms and answer queries. There is even a robot in each room called Chu-ri who helps turn off lights, set alarms and provide weather forecasts.

Multi-Lingual Robot

Describing the experience of a guest at the hotel, their website says that you will be greeted at the front desk by multi-lingual robots who will help check you in or out. In the cloakroom, a robotic arm will take your luggage and store it.

These fun moments are a mix of human and robotic, and they will definitely warm your heart.

Also, as soon as you register your face with their facial recognition system, the struggle of carrying a room key around and worrying about losing it is completely gone.

Human Touch

This type of Android paradise sounds blissful on paper. But the experience of the guests staying at the hotel is quite the opposite. Most of the time, they still need receptionists to answer questions at the front desk and the Chu-ri robots break down regularly.

The Wall Street Journal says that Yoshihisa Ishikawa’s robot regularly talked to him in the middle of the night because it was triggered by his snoring.

This hotel received attention worldwide in 2015 when it was first opened. It was a glimpse of what the future could possibly look like. Now, technology has advanced to a point where the hotel ‘staff’ are outdated and cost too much to repair when they are broken.

For now, it is unclear whether the hotel plans to restock its robotic population, but at least the guests can sleep through the night without malfunctioning robots in their rooms.

Watch: Bus Driver Finds Baby All Alone

Here’s quite a shocking video from Milwaukee. A toddler is seen walking barefoot on a street in winter. The hero was Milwaukee County Transit System employee, bus driver Irena Ivic, and the baby girl belonged to a local resident.

“I couldn’t believe that somebody left the child on the street,” an outraged Ms. Ivic was quoted.

The father said the child’s mother had brought her to a nearby church, but possibly forgot her for reasons having to do with mental illness. Luckily for the little girl’s parents, the police have decided not to file charges. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, and prayers for the little girl that she makes it through childhood in good health.

This video has gone viral on major channels, and it sends chills down the spine for many reasons. Not only can we not imagine our own baby wandering free and unsupervised through a major city, but Milwaukee is one of those northern cities that’s freezing cold in December.

You can see all the adults are bundled up. Babies don’t understand. She seemed OK for the first few minutes, but you can be sure if the heroic Ms. Ivic had not deviated from her paid obligation and gone above and beyond the call of duty, the outcome would have been too tragic to contemplate.

In the video, we first see the baby girl, not even one year old, half-running on a sidewalk on an overpass bridge. It’s hard to tell if she is distraught, but if the father’s remarks bear any weight, then perhaps the child is looking for her mother.

Stop The Traffic!

Ms. Ivic sees the toddler and makes an unscheduled stop after a red light at an intersection. Ms. Ivic exits and runs across the street, holding her hand out to stop oncoming traffic. She picks up the child without hesitation, bringing her back to the bus. The bus is warm, and the baby suddenly shows complete ease in the arms of Irena Ivic.

Ms. Ivic says “I’m shaking,” and then another Good Samaritan passenger approaches from the passenger area, and provides her jacket for the incredibly underdressed baby. The baby is wearing a light onesie, no hat or gloves, and is barefoot!

The fire department sends an EMT to the scene, where the baby is taken, and eventually reunited with her father. Even more incredibly is that a quick thinking citizen was able to capture the entire even on his cell phone camera!

Milwaukee officials and Ms. Ivic’s peers referred to her actions as “humanity at its best”. We have to agree, and applaud Ms. Ivic and everyone who drop whatever they are doing to help a distressed citizen in need, no matter how small.

Ms. Ivic is a Serbian immigrant who came to America with the Golden Rule, saying if she ever found herself in a similar situation, she will always help. We can certainly use more people like Irena Ivic, no matter where they come from.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a one off situation in Milwaukee, where nine missing children have been recovered by MCTS drivers in the last few years.

China Grows First Plant On The Moon

Cotton seeds that were transported outside the earth by a Chinese probe for planting on the moon have finally started growing. This thus makes it the very first time that a plant will be grown on the moon.

While announcing it, images of the sprouted cotton seed were displayed by research experts from China. While the Chinese probe and the plant were on the moon.

This achievement makes China, the first to have its spaceship stationed in a distant part of the moon. This happened with a Yutu 2 landing on the 3rd of January on Aitken Basin – the most prominent crater on the moon.

Aside from growing a cotton seed, the China Probe called this surgeon, “Change 4”. With the primary purpose to achieve a set of activities. Such as examining the propensity to discover liquid, possibly water, in the planet’s poles and reaching a low lunar frequency radio astronomy research.

Growing a plant was among one of the experiments to see if plants can survive in a close-to-zero gravity pull.

China Is Out To Conquer Space

 

As the spaceship touched down on the moon, it began its experiment by watering the cotton seed. Days later, the seedling sprouted a shoot.
Although man has achieved some level of success in growing a plant in space, no one has tried this on the moon until now.

The head of the research team, who also doubles as a lecturer and dean of Chongqing University’s Institute of Advanced Tech spoke overwhelmingly of their success in a story on the institution’s website.

“We have successfully rewritten our human existence with this achievement. Growing a cotton seedling on a plane surface as the moon. Thus making it the first that anyone would ever come across whenever he visits the moon. The first of its kind,” Xie said.

The researchers are taking it a notch higher by planting a host of other plants like rapeseed, potato, fruit fly eggs, etc.

The University’s blog has reported that the experiment is designed to show the development of life in intense radiation and low gravity environments. In addition to aid in setting up a plan on how humans can build resources for new missions and projects on the moon.

The country’s desire to conquer space is not only based on how it can grow plants or resources, but China’s version of NASA also reported that Chang’e 4’s preceding mission, Chang’e 5, is to begin towards the last quarter of the year. Its purpose is to get bits of the moon for study in its laboratory.

China is primed to land on the moon in the year 2020. It will be the first of many to come. The deputy in charge of CNSA (China’s version of NASA) made this announcement on Monday in Beijing, China, during a News conference.

Finally In: No Amount Of Alcohol Is Good For You

Alcohol really isn’t good for you and science has confirmed it! I am sure you won’t like this when you’re done reading it if you’re a drinker but what must be said must be said!

Almost everyone enjoys a drink now and again. It’s now a norm for people to gather together and drink while passing the time. Different cultures and people even have the drinks they prefer. At some point, alcohol was more accessible than clean water!

Over time, many studies have been conducted. A good number came up with the advantages of alcohol and encouraged people to continue drinking even while pregnant! As much as these studies tell us it’s good for us, we know deep within us that it really isn’t, but we carry on.

No Safe Amount

The whole bit of alcohol is good for you was a hoax, a well-packaged lie that will be broken down in this article. There is no safe amount of alcohol one can drink. It’s all unhealthy, and many scientists have come to prove this.

Researchers gathered together to look at the total positive and negative effects of alcohol. They wanted to use this data to come to a conclusion on alcohol, and they took data from over 190 countries and over twenty five years.

The data comprised of studies showing how often people drank and also the health risks involved in drinking. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funded the research.

They wanted to know if there were any positives in drinking moderately. I’m certain no one expects to drink heavily and still find benefits. The shocking thing was that although there have been reports stating that drinking in moderation could have positive effects this study said otherwise.

The study showed that drinking in moderation could potentially provide benefits against diseases like diabetes. Good yes? No! The study said more. Drinking in moderation could potentially cause tuberculosis! And that’s not all. Drinking could lead to road accidents and self-harm as well!

Denmark?

Fun fact: the study showed that Denmark has the most drinkers in the world!

In general, the adverse effects of alcohol grow over time and only get worse. In essence, there’s no light at the end of that tunnel. The study shows that the rate at which people are consuming these drinks contradicts with most health guidelines.

The use and consumption of alcohol cause bad health among a lot of people and what’s more, it shortens the lifespan of a good number of people as well (men especially).

The study also warned that if policy actions are not taken, the future generations stand a chance of feeble health. The mentality that alcohol is right for you has to be dropped as we are all seeing that alcohol has more negative effects than positive ones.

As alcohol now contributes more and more to death and disability, the study shows that the best amount of alcohol to be consumed by anyone is none at all. Of course, that would hurt many among us who enjoy their drinks, but results don’t lie!

Alcohol really isn’t good for you and science has confirmed it! I am sure you won’t like this when you’re done reading it if you’re a drinker but what must be said must be said!
