When a toddler suddenly starts talking to someone in an empty room, everyone can freak out. Some people explain these situations with a transitional age or children’s imagination. Others, on the contrary, tend to see something mysterious and even otherworldly in this.
Skincare is undoubtedly one of the most talked about issues today and everyone is looking for ways to improve their body, face, and hair. For example, Liz Hurley has said that she uses moisturizer on her face 6 times a day and 10 times a day on her neck. Now, we’re not saying that you should do that, but having a routine you swear by can be miraculous. That’s why we’ve prepared a list of 11 products you might want to include in that routine.
Zzzzzz.... Hey, what’s that noise? How long have you been sleeping? You try to move your neck. It’s a little bit stiff. You’ve had a good nap but fell asleep in an uncomfortable position... In the movie theater! Oh, now you remember! The movie was really boring, you were tired after a long day at work, so you couldn’t help it. You look around — everyone’s out. You’re alone. Everything is clean, with no popcorn or soda cans on the floor. Weird.
You can feel the waves brushing up against you. You wake up and see that you’re a giant standing up on 2 feet in the sea. So much water starts dripping down like rain. You’re way taller than the Statue of Liberty. You look at your hands and compare them to a small hot dog stand below you. You pick it up and fit it on the palm of your hand before crushing it by accident. Suddenly you feel a slight sting on your ankle. You look down and see that some people are shoving you away while most people are running away in fear. Some are taking pictures of you, while others are shouting at you to go away. You take a step to the main road and crush a car with no one inside.
Wham-bam! Something crashes to the floor. Glass shatters. In the silence and pitch-black darkness of your bedroom, the clatter is deafening. You’re almost certain it’s still too early to wake up yet. Grunting, you stretch your hand and grab your phone. 3.15 AM. You gotta be kidding me. Argh! This CAT!
If you were to look at Earth from the International Space Station at night, you’d be able to see the light of the cities from space! That’s how big our impact as a species is. There are huge multicultural cities all around the world. We’ve built buildings SO high, they nearly disappear out of sight. Cities are built from the ground up for thousands and thousands of people to live in.
The screech of brakes on the wet road, the eyes of the driver filled with horror, an ear-splitting bump of impact... You open your eyes to the rain falling on your face and don’t see anything through the blur at first. Then, your vision clears, and you see the gray sky and the black spot of a face above you.“Are you alright? I’m so sorry, I didn’t see you...” You get up with the help of the driver who hit you. Thankfully, apart from torn clothes, no serious damage has been done, and you don’t even feel pain. Your exoskeleton took all the impact upon itself.
David Beckham sparks controversy online every time he posts a photo of himself kissing his 11-year-old daughter on the lips.

It all started with a minor change on our planet. At first, people noticed the Moon had become brighter and a little bigger. But nobody paid attention to this. The Moon affected tides all over the world. The water flooded the beaches, but it wasn’t a tragedy. A lot of fish came close to the shores. People found giant squid, anglerfish, and other creatures next to the coast, although they usually live in the dark depths. New, stranger things happen every day. Birds no longer fly to the south in winter. They gather in huge groups flying around cities with no purpose. The Moon used to help them navigate in nature, so they can’t figure out which way to fly anymore.
If you feel cold when you sleep, no matter how heavy your duvet or comforter is, try layering instead. You may use less heavy duvets than your usual one, but if you have 2 of them, air gets trapped between the layers, keeping you warmer.
Somewhere near California, there’s a curious place with over 5,200 underwater holes located right on the seafloor. No one was bothered much about them, — those holes were known to the maritime community and weren’t a big deal. Everyone just thought it was due to underground gas. However, back in 2019, the seafloor was investigated with a robot, and guess what — no gas was found there.They did find something, though. It turned out that 15,000 more holes appeared on the seafloor. Some scientists claim those were fish that had dug those holes. Seems like they just kicked up dust to accommodate themselves, and the dust was simply washed away by the currents. Right, some fish did live in those holes, but most of them were vacant. So, the mystery is yet to be solved!
Okay, here you are, in the middle of the ocean. It’s endless, but you can’t see it. Because there’s a thick fog all around you. Dense clouds hide the huge but dim sun. Is it day or night?.. You don’t know. There’s only a gray haze around you. You’re alone. Even if you try to swim down, after several hours, you still won’t be able to see the bottom of the ocean... And that’s a typical water planet for you! I know, sounded kinda dark... But it’s not that bad! These water worlds are more interesting than they may seem, so let’s take a look at them.
It’s dark, and you can’t see anything. There’s slime all over. The ground is soft and moving. You try to find your way around by feeling the moving walls around you. After a while, you hear some painful screams in the distance. You call out for help, but no one responds. You’re a captain of a ship, and you were just consumed by the mighty Kraken. You keep tumbling over, not knowing if you’re even going in the right direction. The screams get louder and louder. It’s only a matter of time before you see someone. As you make your next step, a large piece of wood swooshes past you, almost knocking you down. That piece of wood was from the ship that the Kraken had swallowed. It had also swallowed the entire crew alive, so they must be somewhere inside the beast’s belly.
Sometimes, when you type big text on your phone, it’s pretty hard to get the cursor where it needs to be. You can control this little thing using your space bar. Simply hard press the space bar, and now you can move the cursor wherever it needs to go. Voilà!
You’re sitting on the balcony, fiddling with your phone, when suddenly, everything around you starts to turn to dust. Gaping, you put your phone down. You see cars, bicycles, sidewalks, street and traffic lights disappear right in front of your eyes!People in the street are panicking and running in different directions. You glance at your watch, and it vanishes too. You turn to look at your room through the balcony door and see that all your furniture is turning to dust. You look back at the street and see nothing but a dust storm. Your house starts shaking. You run downstairs and stand in the middle of the road. You’re just in time to see the buildings in your neighborhood fade away.
We fly away from Earth to look at it from a distance. It glows like a holiday tree! Big cities look like yellow spots at night. And during the day we see strange structures, like a palm tree-shaped island in the UAE or a dark band that runs all the way through China — the Great Wall. These are traces of human existence. Now let’s point our telescope at other planets. Mars? It’s just an empty, endless desert. Venus? Only rocks and volcanoes. Even if we look into distant space, all the planets out there are deserted and lifeless. Not a single trace of an extraterrestrial civilization.
Night. You and your friends are riding bikes around a small city and notice a meteorite flying in the sky. It burns with a bright green flame and then falls right into a small pond near the town. You instantly dash to the crash site. The water on the pond’s surface is foaming and bubbling. The incandescent meteorite slowly sinks to the bottom and illuminates the black waters with a green light. Mesmerized by this picture, you approach the edge of the pier. The green glow is reflected in your glasses, beckoning you. You take a step, suddenly fall into the water, and pass out.
The Milky Way Galaxy where we live looks like a ginormous pinwheel rotating in space. It’s a spiral galaxy that appeared around fourteen billion years ago. It’s filled with a lot of stuff: stars, nebulae — which are clouds of dust and gas, planets, asteroids, you and me and your parents and that messy kid down the street — you get the idea. And all these fans out from the center of the galaxy in long spiraling arms — a marvelous view!
It can be very stressful for a parent who doesn’t know what to do when their baby cries. But there is always a solution to helping your baby sleep through the night. While newborns sleep 16+ hours a day, babies of 3-4 months sleep in the course of 5 hours. You can start by having your baby sleep in your room in its crib, following a consistent bedtime routine. This way, you may get to fit in those extra 2 hours of sleep that you missed.
Does watching TV in bed before going to sleep help us relax? Does exercising at night harm our rest? These are some myths associated with sleep that sustain the habits of many of us, but they are not entirely true. We believe it is important to debunk them, because when we do not sleep well we can feel tired, we don’t think clearly, and we can spend a lot of time in a bad mood. Sleep, just like any other bodily process, requires our attention since it’s a very important part of our lives.
