Runaway Flamingo Found Living Happily in Texas

When an animal escapes from its captivity, many times they are found quite easily. They tend to be quite easy to spot: just look for the domestic animals running scared of their exotic friends. However, when a flamingo escaped, it escaped for the best part of a decade. An escaped animal is always fun to watch on the news for the drama it causes, but this flamingo managed to more or less escape without any problem.

It all started in 2005, when ‘Number 492’ managed to escape from the Sedgwick County Zoo, Kansas. The Tanzanian flamingo had arrived a year early alongside another 38 of his buddies, but seemingly wasn’t too keen on his new surroundings.

By escaping the zoo, it managed to fly under the radar for over a decade. The bird managed to get out, and it left a tiny stain on the reputation of the facility given it was never found. To this day, people at the center at “not fond” of the story being brought up. Since they were adults on arrival, their wings could not be clipped in a humane fashion. It’s not sore for a young bird, but agony for an adult.

This meant that the flamingos had to be trimmed, meaning that they would stay grounded humanely. This needed to be repeated a lot, though, and in June 2005 this one bird took advantage of the tardiness to clip his/her wings and made off.

The great escape

Staying in the local area for a short time the flamingo eventually decided to head off. A storm meant that the weather was too severe to get out and collect the bird from escape, and it took the best part of a decade to hunt the bird done. 492 managed to get all the way to Texas, and appears to be living it up in the most cheerful manner possible.

Indeed, it even appears to have found another flamingo – named HDNT from its own tag – and they appear to have become friends, perhaps even more. Since flamingos are able to live in the wild for so long, it’s going to be interesting to see what the future holds for this amazing pair of flamingos.

What is the oddest non-native animal that you have seen in your area? Have you ever come across an escapee from a zoo who appears to have started a new life?

Finally: Zombiland 2 Has An Official Green light By Sony

In 2009 Sony released Zombieland, a post-apocalyptic comedy about A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park as they join forces to travel across a zombie-infested America. The movie became a sleeper hit earning just over $100 million worldwide on a $24M budget.

Since its release, the film continued to build itself a cult following that craves a sequel. In the past few years, many rumors were spread around that a second movie is happening but most times the rumors were debunked by officials until now, that is.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Sony is moving forward with Zombieland 2 and have all the pieces in place. The sequel has been written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese who just came off panning both Deadpool scripts, and will be directed by Ruben Fleischer (who directed the first movie) , following his upcoming Venom project.

But fans will probably be more excited hearing that all four original cast members will be returning, such as Jessy Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin. They all signed on to the sequel.

The report indicates that Production is slated to begin in early 2019 with the intention of releasing Zombieland 2 sometime next October around the first film’s tenth anniversary.

President of Columbia pictures (film division of Sony Entertainment) Sanford Panitch had this to say about the project: ““This is one of those projects that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time — and no one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse and Abigail, These are some of the most in-demand actors, and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing.”

He is not kidding about the actors being more in demand than ever, Woody Harrelson just came off a role in Solo: A Star Wars Story and the Oscar nomination for  Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. Eisenberg’s in the meantime starred in The Social NetworkBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the Now You See Me franchise since the first Zombieland. And let’s not forget Emma Stone who won an Oscar for her work in La La Land and can be next seen in The Favourite.

We will need to wait a while further until we will able to see the first trailer or get an official release date but the wait should be much more bearable for fans now that they know that the franchise is indeed returning to the silver

Scarlett Johansson Responds to Trans Backlash [Updated]

!!Update!!

Scarlett Johansson announced today that she decided to leave the part. Here is her official statement:

“In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project. Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive. I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues. According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% in 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release. While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I understand why many feel he should be portrayed by a transgender person, and I am thankful that this casting debate, albeit controversial, has sparked a larger conversation about diversity and representation in film. I believe that all artists should be considered equally and fairly. My production company, These Pictures, actively pursues projects that both entertain and push boundaries. We look forward to working with every community to bring these most poignant and important stories to audiences worldwide”

GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis issued a separate statement, in response to Johansson’s decision to step down from Rub & Tug (per Variety):

“Scarlett Johansson’s announcement, together with the transgender voices who spoke out about this film, are game changers for the future of transgender images in Hollywood. Hollywood changed how Americans understand gay and lesbian lives, and TV is starting to do the same for transgender people with authentic transgender portrayals being major hits with critics and audiences. The film industry has a real opportunity to do the same.

The original article follows:

As one of the most popular and easily recognized actresses on the planet, Scarlett Johansson is no doubt full of interesting offers. Someone of her talents attracts a certain style of movie, and that has been the case for the longest time. However, part of the criticism that often comes her way is just that: she has taken on so many different kinds of roles.

That might seem an odd critique of an actress. However, it’s the fact that Johansson has taken on so many roles in recent times that would be far more suitable for someone else. Take Ghost in the Shell, for example, much critique was sent her way due to being a poor representation of the character she played.

Part of the new problem, though, is her take on Dante Gill in Rub & Tug. This interesting mob drama is one that should be worth your time looking into, but the fact that Johansson will play a trans male in the movie. Given that she ‘whitewashed’ her character in Ghost in the Shell, this repeat of the same controversy has many people asking: just what roles are left for people who are actually suited to it?

According to April Reign, one of the people behind the #OscarsSoWhite campaign, the problem is this: “Scarlett Johansson received considerable backlash for Ghost in the Shell, when she played a whitewashed Asian character. The movie tanked. Undeterred, she has teamed up WITH THE SAME DIRECTOR to play a trans male character in Rub & Tug.”

Sadly, given the opportunity to speak about why she felt she was the right choice for the role, Johansson done nothing of the sort. Instead, she responded by saying about complaints: “Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment.”

Two strikes and out?

After playing Major Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell, this latest controversy merely adds another layer to the argument. After being seen to ‘whitewash’ a role made for an Asian, she’s now seen as someone who is going to ‘transface’ another key role. It’s all a very challenging act to balance out: directors want actors and actresses that the whole work knows.

This means often putting stars into roles they should probably have avoided. Appropriation is a very big topic at present, and this is only sure to help fuel the fire even further. Some people, though, hope that the backlash here will help them to further explain to others why they feel so strongly about this particular train of thought: and why they want to do more to help avoid appropriation in such stark terms.

What do you think? Should she have got the role? Could the role have been used to launch the career of a trans artist, instead?

Wow: Archaeologists Dig Up Great Stuff at the ’69 Woodstock Field

Archaeologists are always on work trying to find something from the past and evaluate its significance today. On a five day excavation, Binghamton University’s Public Archaeology Facility found some astonishing artifacts which include, parts of old aluminum that can pull tabs, bits of broken bottle glass.

However what they were exactly looking for was where The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker cheered the crowds 49 years ago.

The project director Josh Anderson explains, “The overall point of this investigation is to kind of define the stage space…We can use this as a reference point, People can stand on that and look up at the hill and say, ‘Oh, this is where the performers were. Jimi Hendrix stood here and played his guitar at 8:30 in the morning.”

This site, Max Yasgur’s farm which is 80 miles away north from New York City is in the category on historical places on the National Register. The director of The Museum at Bethel Woods, Wade Lawrence says, “This is a significant historic site in American culture, one of the few peaceful events that gets commemorated from the 1960s”. The archaeologists will help make walking routes on the site for concert’s 50th anniversary which is in the year 2019.

The aerial shots already taken are not reliable enough to conclude the exact point where the concert took place. The exact place of the original ’69 stage is underneath a layer of trampled fill. However, the Archaeologists seem to have done their homework already. They have found the spot where wooden “peace fence” was in front of the stage and can match the photos to the specific spot on the field. This wooden piece can help them estimate where the corners of the stage were 49 years back.

The archeologist worked on the site and scraped the dirt. One of the archeologists named Paul Brown says, “It’s some science. It’s some guesswork, you hope that you get lucky.”

The artifacts such as pull tab will help the archaeologist determine the surface level of the concert which was 49 years ago. The report of the site by archeologists will also be added to the museum official records to restore the significance of the place.

People have already started visiting the place and also took pictures and explored the area. One of the people who visited the site, an old Woodstock veteran named Charles Maloney says, “There’s just something about this place that — and I’m not the only one — that draws people here, I mean, this area here could have 200 people. And you can still hear the silence.”

Woman Asked To Prove She’s Not a Robot – in Real Life

Whenever we are making an account online, purchasing something from a website or just signing in, we are often required to verify ourselves as humans. It’s called Captcha. In some cases, there are alphabets of upper and lower cases with a few numbers and we are required to type them down correct. While in other cases we are required to select pictures that relate to the given word above and then check the box “I’m not a robot”.

Well everyone is used to this practice because safety is key. So the site needs to make sure that you are human. But have you ever thought you will check the box in real life, on a piece of paper? Well, I guess not. But this happened to a woman who went to buy a new car. She had to sign some documents and then came to this page where she had to check the box “I’m not a robot”. This is quite surprising, isn’t it?

Marci Robin was as surprised as we are right now. She had never imagined in her life that she would have to prove someone by signing on the paper that she is a human. She wondered why the car dealer can’t see that she is a human, a girl and not a robot or something else. Well, Marci took and pen and checked the “I’m not a robot” box to prove that she is a real human being.

Marci questioned about this as if this might be an error. But she found out that this is the company’s corporate policy and it isn’t a onetime error. The policy requires the car dealership to replicate all documents that were on the online website to real paper. So all documents had this “I’m not a robot” checkbox included, because when purchasing online, people check this box.

Well, it is still strange because a human eye can certainly distinguish between a human and a robot. The technological world is progressing very fast, in the near future there might be robots that are difficult to distinguish from real humans so more documents will be needed to be signed. Let’s see what the future holds for us.

Marvel Fan Sees Infinity War 57 Times in Theaters (and counting)

Marvel has never failed to impress us when they release interlinked movies. The first movie by Marvel Cinematic Universe was Ironman in 2008 followed by the Incredible hulk. These movies come in series. Avenger’s series is one of the most watched series by Marvel. It started off with The Avengers followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron and recently marvel released its 3rd Avenger movie which is called Avengers: Infinity war.

Avengers: Infinity war is the beginning of the end of everything. The movie has made over US$ 2 Billion and it is the most watched movie of this year and the biggest hit of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie has also set up a benchmark for untitled Avengers 4 where earth’s greatest heroes will fight to take down Thanos.

Infinity war which was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, broke several ticket sales records all around the globe.

Talk about the biggest fan? We’ve got you covered. There is this guy who has named himself Nem: The infinity watcher on Twitter. The dude has spent over 100 hours watching the same movie over and over again at different cinemas. He has watched the movie 57 times (and still counting) and he has documented each time and posted it on his Twitter account, including pictures of tickets, cinemas, and his own selfies.

Beyonce and Jay Z Drop a Surprise Album

There may be an argument about who is the one true queen of Pop. But one debate is already settled, as Beyonce retained her title as the queen of surprise album drops.  As you all probably remember, she released her eponymous fifth studio album by surprise back in December 2013.  Now she has done it again,

This time she’s not alone, as she and her husband Jay-Z have released a joint album, “Everything Is Love,” Saturday on his Tidal streaming service and announced it during a concert in Europe.
The first indication of the new album came Saturday when Beyonce gave a sneak peek to her new video for the song”Ape S**t,” which will act as the first single off the album. The full video was released this week accompanying the album.  according to a rep for the project, the video was shot in May at The Louvre museum in Paris.

The video was directed by Ricky Saiz, who previously directed the “Yoncé video,” and was produced by Iconoclast; Beyoncé’s personal stylist, Zerina Akers, and Jay’s personal stylist, June Ambrose, handled all the looks; Belgian dancer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui choreographed it, along with Bey’s usual team of JaQuel Knight and Chris Grant.

The Album contains 9 songs with every song written and produced by a different team. An interesting fact is that the music is marketed under the name “The Carters” which is, of course, the last name of both artists. This is an interesting choice, marketing-wise, but it does come to show that this is truly a joint album.

The Everything Is Love cover art is taken directly from a still from the music video. It features two of Beyoncé’s regular dancers, Jasmine Harper who was a contestant in So You Think You Can Dance, and famed Brooklyn bone breaker Nicholas “Slick” Stewart, who also competed on SYTYCD and America’s Best Dance Crew. In the striking image, Harper is seen picking out Stewart’s hair in front of the famous Mona Lisa.

The two artists are currently touring through Europe together as part of the On The Run II tour.  The tour will be coming to North America starting July 25th. Some of the new songs are bound to find their way into the setlist, so if you want to check them out live you can see a full list of dates here.

MIT Scientists Unveil First Psychopath AI Called ‘Norman’

Science has gone way beyond our imagination. Scientists are struggling day and night to create new inventions that will leave the world amazed and astonished. This time, scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology have unveiled a new and weird artificial intelligence algorithm. They have trained it to be a psychopath.

The psychopath AI is named “Norman” by the team of MIT scientists. They took this name from the film Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock’s which has a killer named Norman Bates in it. Three scientists namely, Pinar Yanardag, Manuel Cebrian and Iyad Rahwan trained Norman. After going through a “Deep learning method”, Norman is now able to interpret images and written text in a different way.  The “Deep learning method” included exposing Norman to troubling and violent images posted on subreddit that were dedicated to death.

They gave Norman a Rorschach Inkblot test to see what is up with the AI. To those of you who don’t know what Rorschach inkblot test it, it is a psychological test in which subjects’ insights of inkblots are noted and then analyzed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both.

The AI Norman interpreted some of the images in words such as “man gets pulled into dough machine,” or “a man is electrocuted and catches to death.”, or “a pregnant woman falls at construction story” and “man is shot dead in front of his screaming wife.” The same test was given to a standard AI who interpreted the images in the following words, “a close up of a vase with flowers,” “a couple of people standing next to each other” and “a person is holding an umbrella in the air.”

This little experiment proves that AI’s still see the world through the eyes of their programmer. The team that created Norman was quick to talk about the bias in earlier AI’s. “So when people say that AI algorithms can be biased and unfair, the culprit is often not the algorithm itself, but the biased data that was fed to it, The same method can see very different things in an image, even ‘sick’ things, if trained on the wrong (or, the right!) Data set.”

The MIT team has also set up their own website where people can interpret Rorschach inkblots images and compare them with what Norman has to say about them.

The scientific world is running very fast in this chaotic world and impressing the world every now and then with new researchers and inventions.

Stay tuned to find out more about where the world is heading to.

Watch: Rich or Not, Do Not Stop Traffic!!

YouTuber Cody Persin was doing a photo shoot with friends in New York City when an angry driver approached the group. Traffic on the busy city street was moving around the car they were using for the shoot, but one driver was not happy.

The man interrupted the photo shoot and smashed the windshield of the car with a baseball bat. No-one was hurt, but on-lookers were left puzzled at the drastic action.

Many of us rarely witness a situation like this one on the streets during busy traffic. Nevertheless, this video will most definitely grab your attention, and you’re about to see why! Namely, a famous YouTuber is in the middle of a promotional photo-shoot, as he and his crew seem to distract other drivers’ attention on the road, and which is more, causes a traffic jam.

All of this was probably the main reason why we suddenly see an angered driver coming out of his car and heading towards the crew and their super luxurious car. What he does next will blow your mind! We definitely didn’t see this coming! He’s holding a baseball bat and as soon as he comes close to the car, crashes the windshield, leaving everyone else confused and shocked, to say the least!

We’re not quite sure how this YouTuber handles car insurance, and we can’t be positive is this angry guy gets caught and fined for this, but one thing is for sure, no one out there expected this type of outrage. Judging by the looks of other people’s faces, nobody seemed glad to witness this situation.

Watch: Hornets Nest Vs. Drone

“I discovered the huge Bald-faced Hornets’ nest on the Hughesnet Satellite Dish. I have been attacked by Bald-faced Hornets in the past and figured the safest way to eradicate them was from behind the screen door while piloting my DJI Phantom 4 Pro. My thought was that the suction from the props would draw them in and be chopped up.

I proceeded to fly the UAV near the nest, but the obstacle avoidance prevented me from getting close enough.

After switching off the obstacle avoidance, I was able to fly under the nest. I discovered this from flying under the nest earlier in the day before deciding to record the video. I had already got a large number of the Hornets on the first unrecorded flight.

What I didn’t expect was for them to get aggravated just by the sound of me launching my UAV on the second ‘recorded’ flight. They remembered the noise from the first time and were attacking my camera on the tripod near the nest. Once I was near or under the nest they started attacking the UAV.

Then I pounded on the wall of the building to shake the dish to agitate or provoke more of them to exit the nest. By the end, I’d guess I got about 75% of them. A week or two later the remaining hornets were gone. It took about an hour to clean the UAV. Note: No UAV components were damaged during the making this video.”

Beyonce Breaks YouTube Viewing Records With Cochella Preformance

As one of the most celebrated artists of her generation, Beyonce is a major hit for all manner of reasons. However, it’s down to her complete self-belief in herself and her ease in which she presents herself to the world that makes her such a magnetic personality.

It’s no surprise, then, that her Coachella 2018 performance was immediately seen as a stand-out moment of the whole festival.

Her major event at Coachella was dubbed before it even started as a musical act for the ages. Well, it would appear that all the bombast and hype has been worth it; Beyonce certainly made the most of her massive stage.

Indeed, it’s been one of the most impressive YouTube performers of all-time. Ever since they started to allow live streams on-site, YouTube has seen a new number of records set for live viewing people tuning in.

Well, according to the press, her Coachella 2018 performance brought in a massive 41m live views across over 200 nations. That’s a truly spectacular number of people tuning in, with her Saturday event being one of the most respected and celebrated of her career so far. Not exactly shy of breaking records anyway, this is just yet another one to add to her growing list of trophies.

As the most viewed live musical festival ever already, Coachella’ major events like this one have gone down a major hit. The bombast, the charisma and the entire energy of the whole performance made a huge splash in the industry. However, there are more records that have been broken here at Coachella – including a very important barrier.

For anyone who even has a cursory grasp of modern politics, the inequality across America is immediately apparent. So, the fact that Beyonce became the first black woman to ever headline Coachella in it’s close to two decades of existence is a major landmark in itself. Not content with constantly setting new records and targets with her performances on-stage and online, Beyonce now has opened the floor – quite literally – to artists who previously would have been ignored.

As ever, Beyonce was very magnanimous about this, thanking Coachella for letting her be the first before listing off a large group of people who came before her that paved the way for her own success.

The whole show was a major celebration of everything from black history and pride in culture to education, creating a very powerful message that was definitely felt around the world. Indeed, she performed with a massive 200-person Historically Black College and University (HBCU) group throughout the show.

She even quoted the likes of Malcolm X, and also sang the “Black National Anthem” in Lift Every Voice and Sing. While many celebrities are happy to sit in the background and make very generic and dull comments about modern politics, Beyonce has used her platform for many good causes in the past.

This latest experience is just another example that she breaks the mold of the modern celebrity in some style.
