How to Eat a Bagel

It seems like a great idea. You’ve got a bagel and cream cheese. It should be the perfect snack. But it never turns out right, does it? That’s because you’ve been eating bagels wrong for your entire life.
This video by Murderbot Productions parodies lifehack videos, such as Foodbeast’s How To Eat an Apple and How to Eat a Chicken Wing.

IS 'erasing history' in Nimrud, Iraq

Archaeologists and cultural officials have expressed heartbreak and outrage about the bulldozing of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in Iraq. Islamic State militants began demolishing the site on Thursday, Iraqi officials said. The UN cultural body's Iraq director, Alex Plathe, called it "another appalling attack on Iraq's heritage". "They are erasing our history," Iraqi archaeologist Dr Lamia al-Gailani told the BBC. IS says ancient shrines and statues are "false idols" that have to be smashed.   more

Children And Animals By Elena Karneeva

Children's relationships with animals and with each other are free of many of the misconceptions and unfounded fears that can infect our minds later in life.

Couple Quits Their Jobs, Builds Tiny House On Wheels And Lives By Travel Blogging

The American stereotype is that everything must be big – houses, burgers, cars, butts… But Guillaume Dutilh and Jenna Spesard dream tiny – they built themselves the tiniest house on wheels and are now touring the USA. Their dwelling looks like a real, immobile house, albeit one that is very tiny (and on wheels). There are 11 square meter of space inside, as well as a 5 square meter loft. They have been on the road for five months now, visiting all of East Coast, and are now heading west. The (tiny) odometer already shows over 10,915 miles (that’s more than 17565 kilometers), and they will visit California and Alaska before it’s all over. Of course, the most special thing about it all is the house.

Stunningly Life-Like Figures Hand Carved from Wood by Peter Demetz

Italian artist Peter Demetz brings ordinary wood to life with his incredible, hand-carved figures. The sculptures, which vary in size from about 20 inches to nearly 50 inches tall, feature men, women, and children standing still against a plain, sometimes-colored background. Demetz’s attention to detail is awe-inspiring. He’s able to shape tiny folds in clothing, reproduce loose strands of hair, and define the human anatomy so well that you’d think these figures really exist.

Moles dig for history in Denmark

The Danish culture agency - Kulturstyrelsen - initially thought the application by Viborg Museum was a joke, the Copenhagen Post reports. But after realizing the idea was legitimate they approved it. Now the velvety creatures are being to be used at a site south of Viborg, where archaeologists believe the remains of a fort from the Middle Ages lie hidden beneath the surface. The museum analyses the contents of mole hills that the animals leave behind after burrowing - the moles' "finds" help archaeologists work out where buildings are located underground. Jesper Hjermind, the archaeologist who came up with the idea, says it's based on moles bringing bits of pottery and other items to the surface. "The closer we get to a building, the higher the content of items per litre we find," he says.
 "It's simple, but it works."  via
