Cute overload!

  "They’re irresistibly cute. But these gorgeous newborns are actually some of the animal kingdom’s most endangered species — and they’ve been bred specially in zoos across the world. From a baby beluga whale to a pint-size monkey, you can’t help but fall for these mini-marvels . . ."see here


Tony Curtis dies aged 85

 "Tony Curtis, one of the last great stars of Hollywood's golden age, died yesterday aged 85. The death was confirmed by a representative of his actor daughter Jamie Lee Curtis, although further details have yet to emerge. Curtis's health had been failing for a number of years and he went to hospital in July after suffering an asthma attack.
Appearing on stage at the Guardian BFI Southbank interview in 2008, Curtis was asked by an audience member what he would like to have written on his gravestone. 'Nobody's perfect,' he quipped, quoting the final line of his best-loved comedy, Some Like it Hot." read more

Found: first rocky exoplanet that could host life

"Astronomers have found the first alien world that could support life on its surface. It is both at the right distance from its star to potentially harbour liquid water and probably has a rocky composition like Earth.

'That's the most exciting exoplanet I've seen yet,' says James Kasting of Pennsylvania State University in University Park, who was not involved in the discovery.

The planet orbits a dim red dwarf star 20 light years from Earth called Gliese 581. Four planets were already known around the star, with two lying near the inner and outer edges of the habitable zone, where liquid water – and therefore potentially life – could exist on its surface."

Police Language

"A policeman spots a huge black guy dancing on the roof of a Ford car.

He radios for backup.

'What's the situation?'

'A big fat black dude is dancing on a car roof.'

'You can't say that over the radio' replies the operator,

'You have to use the politically correct terminology'

'OK' he says 'Zulu...Tango....Sierra'"

What's in the box?

The only way to find out is to head to the place with the coordinates shown on the lid, whereupon the box will unlock. Mikal Hart, a software engineer at Intel, calls his box an example of 'reverse geocacheing' – a new spin on the game of geocacheing where players follow GPS coordinates to find hidden treasure.

Habitat: still waters such as swamps and creeks in west Africa, very much doing its own thing

We've all heard the saying 'If it ain't bust, don't fix it'. It turns out there's an animal that takes it to extremes.

Tens of millions of years ago, the African freshwater butterflyfish evolved a distinct body and lifestyle, and it has steadfastly clung onto them ever since, despite dramatic environmental shifts and changes in its own genes. It is one of the most compelling living fossils – species that have stayed the same for millions of years.

To find a butterflyfish, you must go to the central Congo or lower Niger, and keep a close watch on a still body of water. Insects will be skittering over the surface, and every so often one of them will vanish with a 'plop'. That is the butterflyfish at work."

The Secret World Of The Panda

 "The giant panda is one of the best-known symbols in the world, used to sell everything from electronic goods to fizzy drinks, chocolate to biscuits, liquorice to cigarettes – not to mention global conservation. Yet thanks to its shy and retiring nature, it has long been one of the planet’s most mysterious creatures. Why, for example, do pandas eat bamboo? Why do they appear to have such difficulty breeding? And how on earth has such a seemingly maladjusted species managed to survive for so long?"
