1)Recently, in China, people found an unusual looking creature. This creature looks odd because it has a bird looking head and a fish looking body. Furthermore, the creature has fins that looks like wings and a mouth that looks like a beak. To know about this creature more, an animal physiologist thinks the creature looks as it is because of a defective cell growth, or a harmful chemical might have deformed it. Another physiologist said it looks healthy, but might have hard time breathing and feeding. Many people are still studying this fish thoroughly to get accurate information about this creature.

Why This Zoo Lion Killed a Lost Water Bird
+
 
      In this article a lioness kills a heron that came for water. Even though the lioness was raised in captivity.
+
 
Cats,big and small are instinctual hunters. Without practicing or being instructed, they know how to move silently, stalk, and pounce on prey.
+
 
Even domesticated cats hunt small animals like birds and rodents with these keen skills. This is why the lioness killed the heron because it was its instincts.Since the heron entered the lions exhibit, it triggered the lioness' instincts to kill.
+
 
Therefore, even captive or domestic cats are instinctual hunters.

2)Onions are a big cause of why people cry when they cook.  Onions are plants that make foods from the sun and absorbing minerals from the soil. Once, the onions get cut their liquids release, making people cry. A chemical called, Volatile, has a burning sensation inside. To get your eyes, undamaged from onions, you have to cry to rinse off the burning things from your eyes. Not only that, people also have found out ways to not get irritated by eating  bread, breathing from your mouth, and refrigerating onions. In the future, there might be better ways to get rid of irritation.

3) Domino's, the pizza store, is thinking many ways to get an increase in sales. They fabricated a robot, that allowed any customers to ask what they want. Also, they had their own app called, Tummy Translator, and which offered food recommendations. Not only that, Domino’s is trying to dispense gift cards, that are worth $5000, to people who got chosen in the lottery. They had a robot, app, and prize to get attention from a lot of people. These days, Domino’s is drawing their logos on the streets. Domino’s is a money hunger pizza store.

4)Many people including scientists are wondering about why Jeremy, the snail, has a shell that’s coiled to the left. One scientist thought that the snail’s genetics affected it;however, when Jeremy produced offspring their shells were coiled to the right. Furthermore, the snail’s organ is turned counterclockwise, which is unusual. Not only that, the snail will have a hard time mating with another snail because he needs to find a snail whose shell is coiled to the left. Jeremy’s shell is being persevered and identified by scientists.

5)A team at ETH Zurich is one step closer to finding a solution. The team fabricated a 3D heart that’s made out of silicon, and it beats similarly to a human’s heart. The heart can beat for half an hour, and the team is still working on the number of heart beats, so it could be similar to a human's heart. In addition, the heart has a left and right chamber. The chamber lets the blood travel through the ventricles. The team hopes they can improve the heart faster, so they can use it on humans.

6)Many people are out in the beach and they stay out in the sand for a long time. Staying out in the sun, for a long period, makes you have sunburns. Sunburns are caused by the sun damaging the DNA in the skin cells. People found some ways to get rid of sunburns such as using a moisturizer, a sunscreen, and being in a shade. The moisturizer hydrates your skin, which will help the sunburns to go away. The sunscreen helps you not get sunburns. It might be relaxing to stay out in the sun, but it can be dangerous.

7)Many people think that artificial sweeteners don't give harm to them, but they're wrong. Artificial sweeteners were tested to see if it gave harm to the people. The Canadian Medical Association Journal analyzed 37 artificial sweeteners. Studies showed that artificial sweeteners didn't help people lose weight, but gain weight and raise the risk of health issues. Some health issues are obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. All in all, zero calories doesn't mean zero harm, but harm.

8)Many people react differently to a quandary, such as freezing, fighting, and leaving. A psychologist said our brains immobilize us when we are encountering a quandary. However, if you have no memory your brain will shut down because it doesn't know what to do or how to act. Humans and animals react similarly to a quandary, they both freeze and try to act on the situation, but for humans this action is involuntary. Not only that, humans won't just freeze, but also fight if they have to and leave the unwanted situation. All in all, humans will make a great decision depending on the situation.

9)To be great leaders in life they have to be confident in themselves, connected to the group members, and committed to the purpose. Leaders have a big role in their group, which is showing them assurance. If the leader is confident, assured, and connected, it could be clear that this group would succeed. Furthermore, if you are the leader and you don't have confidence, it would show that you will betray your own needs to please your group members. Not only that, Brad, a worker, was assigned to be the leader, but he was in having confidence in himself, so he wanted to resign. However, knowing what his weakness was his friend helped him build up more confidence.  To conclude, leaders will succeed if they be confident, connected, and committed to the purpose.

Tracking Animal Migrations
 
      In this article I speak about understand Tracking Animals migration helps the animals.
 
Tracking the Animal during migration helps us how individuals and populations move within local areas and migrate across oceans and continents.Also, this information is being used to address environmental challenges.The information on the animals migration path or environment helps us stop climate and land-use changes, biodiversity loss, invasive species,
 
and the spread of infectious diseases.So, Tracking animal migration paths ,HELP US KEEP THEM SAFE, and stop the challenges that await them during there migrations.

10)Hornets are flying creatures that threaten the bees’ hives. So, bees came up with an idea about how to not get threaten. A hundreds of bees come to surround one hornet, and they heat them up by constantly flapping their wings. Then, they’ll cook the hornet in the inside. Some bees get threaten too by the heat, but they are doing this to help the other bees survive. After the bees finish with their job, they put the feeble hornet inside a ball to stay. The bees heat one hornet at a time. All in all, bees know how to thrive when a hornet comes.
First snake found in amber is a baby from the age of the dinosaurs
 
        In this article a baby snake is found in amber and its the first snake ever found from 100 million years ago
 
Around 100 million years ago, a baby snake hatched on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean. The tiny snake, just 10 centimetres long, got stuck in resin oozing from a tree. That chunk of resin remained buried as the island drifted north and became part of what is now Myanmar. When it was finally dug up a few years ago, the skeletal remains were misidentified as a centipede and the amber sold to a private collector. But It has now been studied by an international team, who have scanned the amber to build up a 3D image of the skeleton. “The baby is unquestionably a snake,” says team member Michael Caldwell of the University of Alberta, Canada, a palaeontologist who specialises in studying ancient snakes and lizards. This would make it the first ever snake found in amber.
