You may not think of plants as particularly chatty or active organisms, but they're not as passive as they might seem. Plants can't run away, so they have to develop other strategies to stay alive, as James Cahill, an environmental plant ecologist at the University of Alberta, explains in "What Plants Talk About," a documentary from the PBS show NATURE. They've evolved the use of chemicals to communicate with insects and each other in order to thrive. Here are five behaviors that show how active plants can be.

If youíre low on funds for that big vacation, you could always ask to borrow money, make a Kickstarter campaign... or swindle a couple of Islamic State recruiters. It may not be the safest way to make money, but thatís what three girls from Chechnya, a Russian republic in southeastern Europe, did.

"He has a couple of favorite holes," Tennfjord told the Rogaland Avis newspaper. "And we know it is a man because the poos are too massive to be from a woman."

Now that 7,000 American men and several drunk farm animals have officially declared their candidacies for President, keeping track of them has never been more confusing or difficult. Luckily, we've put together a "cheat sheet" with "quick trivia" to help the political layperson discuss with confidence the nuances of each male candidate's views and legitimacy. Feel free to use any and all of these in kicky water cooler conversations about politics this summer, and impress your friends!

Casa Brutale is a geometrical translation of the landscape. It is an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture. It is a chameleonic living space, created to serve its owner and respect the environment. It is the inverted reference to Casa Malaparte, encased and protected by the tender earth that has hosted the human civilization for millennia. It is a complete study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering, which thoroughly detailed, awaits solely its realisation.

Translation: it's some bitchin' digs under a pool in the corner of a cliff.

A few weeks ago, a young boy accidentally left his stuffed bear at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Canada after an encounter with a T-Rex exhibit left him shaken and afraid.

Now the staff is trying to hunt down the original owner, and they're having a lot of fun in the process.

They've been posting photos of the bear in various parts of the museum-to their Twitter account using the hashtag #LostBear to try to get the attention of the family.

These include images of him in the jaws of a dinosaur, looking for honey in old pots and climbing around a bird's nest.

E. L. Doctorow, a leading figure in contemporary American letters whose popular, critically admired and award-winning novels - including "Ragtime," "Billy Bathgate" and "The March" - situated fictional characters in recognizable historical contexts, among identifiable historical figures and often within unconventional narrative forms, died on Tuesday in Manhattan. He was 84 and lived in Manhattan and Sag Harbor, N.Y.
