In an absolutely adorable scene, a teeny tiny baby elephant tried to keep up with the spry little birds running around on the grass, but the clusmy little pachyderm slipped on the ground and landed face down. Luckily, mom was nearby and ready to comfort her little baby.
In an uplifting episode of “Amazing Places”, host Tom Scott traveled to Germany in order to feast his eyes upon the incredible Multi Elevator by Thyssenkrupp that moves sideways from point A to point B.
I’ve filmed a paternoster lift; I’ve filmed the strange Genoa elevator that sort-of goes sideways. So when I got an email from Thyssenkrupp, an elevator company, saying “come and see our Multi elevator that actually goes sideways”, I wasn’t going to turn it down.
Filmmakers with Parco Abruzzo planted a hidden camera in the woods, focused it on a single beech tree and left it there for one year. The resulting footage reveals how this tree stood as a silent witness to a variety of wild animals that pass through the park throughout the seasons.
A “special” beech tree kept under observation for a whole year by a concealed eye, which never closes. Four seasons unfolding around a crossroad of smells, signals and messages left behind by the extraordinary wildlife of the Apennines. What you see here is just a small part of this incredible experience. In the past two years, we have understood that in the vast[ness] of the forest each tree is unique.
In a very colorful essay for Vox, video editor Dion Lee tells the story of the Memphis Group, the extremely eclectic and talented design collective who derived their name from a Bob Dylan song, despite being based in Milan, Italy where they created the iconic vibrant mark that they left on the 1980s.
The Memphis Group dominated the design world in the ‘80s. The collective led by Italian architect Ettore Sottsass came together in 1981. …They had a huge impact on the postmodern designs of the decade.The life of the Memphis Group was short lived, 6 years to be exact. And even though their designs failed to serve a function in people’s homes…they left a colorful mark in history and inspired many designers to come.
Musician Seth Everman put on a rather stern face and skillfully performed the classic Toto song “Africa” in a number of genres and instrument styles while trying out all the features of his highly sophistiated keyboard.

In February 2017, a scared and badly injured stray cat walked up to Anelida, the compassionate human belonging to Santi the angora cat and Walter the golden retriever. The vocal feline then let out a series of plaintive meows that indicated he was in a great deal of pain and needed help. Anelida acted immediately, taking the cat to the vet where he remained for a couple of nights. After some time inside and very attentive care, the cat couldn’t wait to go back outside, but stuck close to his new home.
At first he couldn’t put any weight on his left rear leg. I cleansed the wound with antiseptics 3 times a day. He cleaned the wound with his tongue 30 times a day. Then he started to run. At the end of the five-day treatment, we went to the vet again. She said the wound looked fine and we stopped the antibiotics. The cat was ready to go outside because it was March and it was very difficult to keep him indoors so we let him out. Now he lives in our garden with other cats.
Anelida also posted an update about the cat after 40 days since their first meeting.
I shot this video on April 5th but forgot to upload it. As you can see, the cat was very busy chasing females in those days.
