Joachim Munter, a talented photographer who lives in Helsinki, Finland has captured the innate beauty and magical personalities of the various animals who populate the Finnish forest. In these photos, Munter’s connection with the animals is evident; birds perch on his hand, a fox smiles for the camera, a squirrel lies upon a tree limb without a worry in the world while a little field mouse shows off some ill-gotten bounty.

John Gilchrist, the child actor best-known as Mikey from Life cereal's most notable commercial, was tossing around a baseball in 1979 when his mom got a bizarre phone call from a stranger in tears.
"I'm so sorry to hear about your son!" the woman wailed.
"What do you mean?" Gilchrist's mother shot back. "He's at the park -- he just came home from school."

Dick Enberg, a Hall of Fame broadcaster known as much for his excited calls of "Oh my!" as the big events he covered during a 60-year career, has died. He was 82.

Denmark’s new prison has a grocery store, workshops, and lots of glass. It looks more like a college campus–and that’s the whole point.
Denmark’s recidivism rate is about 27%, about half of the United States’ rate, which ranges between 49% and 80% depending on the type of crime committed.
The Badain Jaran Desert occupies parts of China and Inner Mongolia covering an area of 49,000 sq. kilometers making it the third largest desert in China. Although not a lot of people are familiar with this desert, outside China, it is known for having the tallest stationary dunes on earth. Some of these dunes have been measured to reach heights of more than 500 meters. Badain Jaran has an extremely arid climate with an annual precipitation between 50-60mm. Nearly 40-80 times of the precipitation gets evaporated away before it falls as rainfall.
Despite these dry conditions, one of the most remarkable feature of Badain Jaran is the existence of nearly 140 permanent lakes that lie between the dunes. It’s these lakes that give the desert its name which in Mongolian means "mysterious lakes".

The strangest thing about warts is that they tend to go away. Fully grown, nothing in the body has so much the look of toughness and permanence as a wart, and yet, inexplicably and often very abruptly, they come to the end of their lives and vanish without a trace. And they can be made to go away by something that can only be called thinking, or something like thinking. This is a special property of warts which is absolutely astonishing, more of a surprise than cloning or recombinant DNA or endorphin or acupuncture or anything else currently attracting attention in the press. It is one of the great mystifications of science: warts can be ordered off the skin by hypnotic suggestion.

The Serbian a cappella choir Viva Vox performs a medley of Star Wars themes with just their voices. All the orchestral parts are there, and they do a great job of executing. The group is a lot larger than you can tell from the visuals here. The visuals are almost as catchy as the music.
