When you scroll through the photos on Elizabeth Hurley’s Instagram, you may immediately start wondering what the actress does to keep her body and skin looking so fantastic. The 58-year-old British actress and model manages to look half her age. Her skin glows, and her body looks fabulous in a bikini. She shared her secrets that help her look younger, and we are prepared to take notes.
A woman in her fifties can rock her femininity, and Salma Hayek proves it. Her recent post flaunting her amazing body caused quite a stir, with some people even doubting if she could pull off such outfits at her age and leaving some not-so-nice comments on her picture.
We always like ensuring our kids are safe and sound, especially when they sit in a car. For a “sense of security,” we monitor them using mirrors. Yet, it turns out that they are not as safe as they look and really can cause much harm when we don’t expect it. Hopefully, one concerned mom shared a warning regarding all these things and, together with other parents, found a great solution.
You’re on a plane heading to an important astronomy convention when you see a large figure outside your window that eclipses the whole Sun. You spit out all of your coffee, and everyone in the plane stares outside in shock. You then notice that it has rings like Saturn. You were supposed to fly to Japan, but you’re forced to land in California.As soon as you land, you look up in the sky and see some more giant planet-like structures floating around in the sky. Everyone is taking pictures and trying to figure out what’s going on. Suddenly you notice a huge ball of fire crashing down near the airport. Everyone scrambles for safety, and luckily, it ends up in the middle of the runway with no one around. The bad news is that there’s no more runway for planes to land.
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.
A responsible dog owner never walks their pooch on hot concrete. Your feet are protected by shoes. But for dogs’ paws, roads, and sidewalks can feel scorching. When it’s hot outside, avoid these harmful surfaces. Stick to grassy areas.
Ahhh, the beauty of nature all around you, the fresh air, and days and days of meditative rest far away from civilization ahead of you. But you’ve been walking for quite some time to get this far, and now it’s time to set up camp.
The 28-year-old patient shows up at the hospital with distressing symptoms. He explained to the doctors that he felt really bad chest discomfort and had been coughing badly for quite some time. The medical staff knew right away there was no time to waste, so he was scheduled for an X-ray. Weirdly, there was nothing unusual about the X-ray results. The patient just had a mass in his lungs that they needed to remove as soon as possible. Sure, it wasn’t the best news for the man, but it was certainly nothing the doctors hadn’t seen before. But that first opinion changed on the day of the surgery. Not only was the whole operation more difficult than they’d initially expected, but the mass they removed from the patient had an unusual shape. When the probe was sent for further investigation, the doctors were puzzled: it was a small fir tree!
Among all the planets of the Solar System, our Earth is unique since it’s the only one that has developed life. But what if we got a competitor? What if a second Earth appeared out of nowhere? Then there would be two different scenarios. The first is the destruction of both planets. The second has an unexpected but pretty logical ending. But let’s start with the catastrophic scenario. The second Earth with the same conditions could exist only if it received absolutely the same amount of sunlight as our planet. The orbit that our Earth follows is perfect for getting the necessary amount of solar heat. If we were a little further away, the entire surface of our planet would resemble Antarctica. And if Earth was a little closer to the Sun, we’d all live in a huge desert inhabited by very few living beings. So, for the second Earth to be identical to ours, it’d need to follow the orbit of our planet.
Aah, beautiful. You’re walking with your friend, and look up at the sky. The sun looks a bit different today... like it has some kind of ring around it, a rainbow-type thing. Huh... "Look at that!’’ Your friend pulls his head up out of his phone. “You shouldn’t look directly at the...stop everything,” he says. “It’s a sun halo, we need to find shelter now, unless you have the world’s biggest umbrella on you!”A sun halo is nature’s sign that there’s a snow or rainstorm on its way. It’s caused by clouds that are made of bazillions of small ice crystals, flying around at 20,000 feet (6 km)! Sunlight goes through those crystals, which causes the light to split and refract, like when there’s a rainbow. Now, don’t look at the sun halo directly. It’s gonna be tempting because it’s not something you see every day, plus it’s really beautiful... but ultraviolet light can burn the exposed tissue of your retina and cause serious damage. So not worth it.

There’s something exciting about discovering scary and odd facts. Do you ever wonder about real-life creepiness? Ready to be freaked out?There’s a possibility that the Sun can explode. Yet, we’re living our lives as if our star will always continue to rise and set. Imagine the Sun exploding right now; you would be unaware of the catastrophe for over 8 minutes — that’s how long it takes sunlight to reach Earth. If all this energy hit the Earth, the destruction would start veeery shortly after that. After all, it’s the Sun, and the star isn’t gonna wane like a candle.
A study published in 2013 showed that dolphins and humans had one little thing in common — apart from being mammals — they have names! In particular, bottlenose dolphins, which have their own special whistles, just like human names. Not only do they develop this type of whistle to present themselves to other dolphins, but they can also learn other “names” so that they can better communicate with one another.
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!
Wouldn’t it be really cool if we could collect energy from space and just bring it down to our planet? That means we wouldn’t need to get electricity from wind, water, or other resources available on Earth.Millions of people would charge their phones, store food in the fridge, watch TV, and do so much more thanks to electricity we’d wirelessly get from space. It kinda sounds too good to be true at first. But this idea isn’t science fiction anymore. Not only is it possible, but we might see it work sooner than we think, maybe even by 2040.
Let’s do a little experiment together, shall we? Do you have any old family photo albums lying around? Try to look for your parents’ or grandparents’ photos. If possible, search for photos where they’re the same age as you are today. You’ll see that even though you might look similar, there will be something odd about these pictures. Your family members appear to look older than you do today. Sure, you probably think it might have something to do with their hairstyles — those may not be fashionable anymore. Or with vintage-looking clothes. But even if we don’t take it into consideration, people still looked older back then.
Have you ever wondered why Earth doesn’t have rings? Gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune have them, but the rocky planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars don’t. Two theories describe how ring systems potentially developed. The first one says the rings may have formed from leftovers that date from the time a certain planet was forming. Or, as the second one says, they could be the remains of a moon that was either destroyed in a collision or broken apart by the gravitational pull of its parent planet.
As children, we used to ask our parents questions about everything that surrounded us 100 times a day. However, curiosity decreases as we age, which is quite sad, considering it gives us many new opportunities and options in life. Our article will help you not only find out more about the nature, but learning new facts overall will also help your creative spirit prosper.
Looking for something slimy? Well, many people tend to believe that snails are just slugs with shells, but even though they look so similar, they’re completely different species. Slugs don’t need any protective shells as all their internal organs are, well, internal — inside their slimy bodies. They can squish themselves and get into hard to reach places, which is why slugs can often be found in the most unlikely spaces, like under tree bark or inside tiny crevices, or at the library pretending to study for exams. Snails, on the other hand, are tightly connected with their shells and can’t survive without one. Unlike hermit crabs, which replace their shells as they grow, snails are born with a shell on their back. Baby snails look adorable with those fragile translucent bubbles that calcify and become bigger and tougher with age. Cute.
Soda bottles are always filled in such a way that there’s some space between the liquid level and the cap. That’s because these drinks contain carbon dioxide. This gas can expand if the bottle gets heated. If there’s no air gap in the bottle, it’ll break because of the pressure building inside. Also, when you open your drink, the gasses go out in the form of bubbles. And the drink is likely to overflow. The gap helps with this problem too. (Except if you shake it up first, then open it. No, I’ve never done that.)
Ah, you go to bed early to get more sleep and wake up tomorrow morning refreshed and full of energy. Everything goes well, you fall asleep quickly, and... your body wakes you up at 3 am. You try to go back to sleep, but you can’t. Well, here’s something to help you.
If there were cataclysms on Earth every 5 minutes, living conditions on our planet would be almost the same as 4.5 billion years ago. Back then, seas and oceans boiled, lightning struck everywhere, tectonic plates changed their shape, lava flowed from volcanoes. And worse, no internet! The Earth resembled a vast, boiling cauldron, where life was gradually being created. If it starts to boil again, this cauldron could destroy almost all life on the planet.
There are 2 main reasons why people age. First, it’s due to their cells aging for natural reasons. Second, it’s due to environmental factors, such as exposure to sunlight, bad nutrition, and other unhealthy habits. That’s why some people make sure to protect themselves from all these negative things at a young age. Maybe this is why some of the biggest celebrities on the planet have maintained such a youthful appearance.
The first thing you feel is some heaviness around your body — as if you’re sleeping under a soft but weighted blanket. It feels nice, and you’re too lazy to do anything. Fortunately, you gather enough strength to move this blanket. You open your eyes and... it’s weird. You’re surrounded by some blue glow. You want to rub your eyes and discover that you have tentacles instead of hands!
Let me take you to a place that seems to be out of this world. Life inside this cave has been isolated from the outside world for about 5.5 million years! And it DOES show. See for yourself.Due to such a long isolation, the conditions inside the Movile Cave [mow·vuhl] are like nowhere else on our planet. A unique ecosystem is flourishing there — even though there is a severe lack of sunlight inside the cave, and the air is toxic.
If you feel cold whenever you sleep no matter how heavy your duvet is, also called a comforter or quilt, try layering. These may be less heavy comforters compared with the ones you normally use, but in case you have 2 of them, the air gets trapped in between the layers keeping you warmer. Even if the comforters feel really lightweight, you’ll feel warm. So, if it’s hot, don’t go beyond only one duvet. By the way, today some comforters can literally hug you. You’ll look a bit like a caterpillar in a cocoon, but trust me — that’s going to be a night of quality sleep.
Solar eclipses are cosmic magic tricks during which the Moon suddenly “swallows” the Sun. Only they work, not on magic, but on simple science. Let’s try to find out how exactly they work, and how you personally can observe this fascinating event. It all starts when the Moon, the Sun, and the Earth line up in a straight line, with the Moon positioned directly between us and our favorite star. This alignment is possible because the Moon’s orbit around the Earth is slightly tilted relative to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar eclipses only happen during new moons, when the Moon is closest to the Earth in its orbit.
To keep your apartment looking cozy and pretty for longer, place furniture and pictures in shady areas of the house. Allowing sunlight to enter your home can be very pleasant, but it has one major drawback: UV rays cause your carpet, furniture, and artwork to fade and lose their brightness and color. To make staying at home this winter even cozier, take a look at the products below.
In our Solar system, most planets spin counterclockwise — but not Venus. This rebel planet decided to spin clockwise, and scientists are still trying to figure out why. By the way, why do planets rotate in general? What defines the speed of their rotation? Does the Sun rotate? Buckle up and let’s try to answer these questions. Venus is the second planet from the Sun and the hottest planet in our Solar system. Did you know that Venus is sometimes called Earth’s “twin”? That’s because it’s similar in size and composition to our own planet. But that’s where the similarities end, because Venus is a pretty crazy place, to say the least. For example, the weather. On Venus, it’s always hot and cloudy. And when I say “hot”, I mean it — it’s like over 800°F there! And those clouds? They’re not made of water like the ones on Earth. Instead, they’re made of sulfuric acid. So yeah, you wouldn’t want to go outside without a really good sunscreen on Venus.
We all love to come home after a hard working day and relax. But some things just don’t work out as planned. A ruthless cat, for example, can change the interior of your bathroom, while the sunlight can melt your keyboard. It’s also possible that at some point your beloved family can decide that you don’t deserve some personal space.
Autumn is here, and that means it’s time to prepare the garden and yard for winter. Fallen leaves can lead to mold and block sunlight if not removed in time. Therefore, it is advisable to remove them as soon as possible, especially if you can still do something with those leaves. For example, they can be used as fertilizer for your lawn or as insulation material.In this Bright Side selection, you will find the most suitable and necessary equipment for cleaning the garden of your home.
