Teenagers don’t like Facebook that much.

Over 700 teens aged 13-17 across different races, household incomes and parental educational attainment were interviewed about their social media habits. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, Snapchat and Tumblr all featured in the study and YouTube came out on top, 

crushing the competition with 85% of teens confirming they used the video streaming service.
Study Finds Teens Don't Think Facebook Is Cool Anymore The Pew Research Center revealed their findings on Thursday,

 only 51 percent of teenagers are using Facebook. They're way more likely to head to YouTube (85 percent), Instagram (72 percent) and Snapchat (69 percent). The disparity is even more dramatic when asked which one site they use most often -- YouTube (32 percent,) Snapchat (35 percent) and Facebook (10 percent).

That’s a stark drop-off from only three years ago, when Facebook was the most popular app among teenagers, according to Pew.

But Instagram, the popular Facebook-owned messaging app, still has 72 percent of teens onboard — making it more popular than rival Snapchat, the app Instagram has been modeling new features after as of late. As kids become more disenchanted with Facebook, the company’s $1 billion acquisition of Instagram back in 2012 continues to stand out as one of tech’s best bets of the last 20 years.

After The Incident, Pictures Of The UFO Were Sent To Chile's UFO Investigating Agency, The Centre For The Study Of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA).
After the incident, pictures of the UFO were sent to Chile's UFO investigating agency, the Centre for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA).

The experts at CEFAA pored over the photos and videos, trying to figure out what this object was.

Zamora was in the middle of a high speed chase when he saw an odd flying object in the distance that he said was emitting blue flames. Inspecting the object further, Zamora claims to have witnessed 2 humanoid creatures get into the spacecraft and immediately take off, emitting the same blue flames that he witnessed before.

Thousands of people called the local police departments, jamming up their phone lines, to report strange lights illuminating from a flying object in the sky. They were said to be in a V shape and to be able to move very quickly in the sky.

Aside from extra-terrestrial beings visiting our planet:
Scientists are trying to learn about many different E.T. races tinkering with our DNA over millennia and also about the truth behind the life of E.T. beings been on earth.

There are many creatures other than humans on the earth.
There are many creatures other than humans on the earth.
No doubt, if we separate the list of human beings and other living organisms than the list of insects and animals would be long enough.

Lions of Njombe, Tanzania

In 1932, a pride of lions in the town of Njombe, Tanzania went on a killing spree after a witchdoctor reportedly cast a spell on them to kill his own people after he was removed from his post.
The pride was said to have killed more than 1,500 tribesmen.
The killing stopped when George Rushby, a famous hunter, started killing lions in the area (he killed 15), driving the pride away.

Two Toed Tom

This four and a half meters alligator terrorized the residents living along the swamps bordering Florida and Alabama in the 20s. It got its name after having lost all toes in his left paw, except two, from a trap.
He became a nuisance after killing cows, mules and, of course, people. He was hunted vigorously but bullets seemed to have no effect on him, even a bucket of dynamite. Two Toed Tom was never captured or killed. On the contrary, so many people in the 80s reported to have seen a two toed alligator.

The New Jersey Shark:

This incident happened when scientists knew little of sharks. They even thought they were harmless. Not this one.
It roamed the waters along New Jersey in 1916, shallow or deep, attacking people. It attacked five people, killing four. In July of that same year, a young female Great White Shark was captured in the Rattan Bay, near the Matawan Creek, where the last three attacks occurred.

Inside its stomach were human remains. However, scientists argued that the last three attacks, occurring in a shallow creek could have been done by a bull shark – the only species of shark that can live in fresh water. White or Bull let science argue over that. What was certain is that the attacks stopped after that capture.

The Bear of Mysore:

Among the species of bears, the Sloth Bear has never been known to kill people, though mauling is common (at least once a week in India).
This sloth bear in the Indian state of Mysore was different. It attacked 3 dozen people, killing 12, finally shot and killed by big game hunter, Kenneth Anderson.

The Beast of Gevauden:

From 1764 to 1787, the French province of Gevauden was terrorized by a “beast” no one ever saw until it was killed in 1767.
It was described in many ways, e.g., a wolf, though larger than a wolf; it is reddish brown in color with an unbearable smell, and teeth bigger than that of a wolf. What was certain was that it ignored cattle and other domesticated animals. Instead it attacked people – 210 of them, killing 113, eating 98. Its reign of terror ended when Jean Castel, a local hunter, killed it. When opened, human remains were found in its stomach.

The Panar Leopard:

The leopard is the smallest of the true “big cats” but it has a big bite and a voracious man-eater. Fossil studies of our earlier hominid relatives showed leopard bite marks on their bones. This one lived up to its reputation be terrorizing the natives of Panar, in Madha Pradesh, India, in the early 20th century.
It reportedly killed 400 people making it the second most prolific man-eating animals in history. He was killed by famous hunter and conservationist, Jim Corbett, in 1910.

The Champawat Tigress:

In the late 19th century, a Nepalese region close to the Himalayas was terrorized by the most notorious and prolific man-eater of all time – a female Bengal tiger.
Man, woman, or child, by the dozens, were ambushed and killed by this dreaded beast. She seemed to be always hungry that her victims reached 200. Hunters were sent to track her down, to no avail. In desperation, the Nepalese government sent in the army to hunt her. Still she evaded them.

But she fled to neighboring India, and there, in Champawat continued her rampage. Every kill she made, made her bolder, eventually attacking villages even in broad daylight.
Ultimately the Indian government had enough of this tiger and sent in Jim Corbett (the guy who killed the Panar leopard). Jim tracked her by following her trail of the blood, guts and severed limbs of her latest victim. She was killed in 1911, but not until having killed 436 people.


Somewhere in the marshes of Burundi, Africa, lies hidden Gustav, a giant Nile crocodile who, to date, has killed more than 300 people.
While all the man-eaters featured above are already dead or retired, Gustav is pretty much alive, waiting, to make another grisly kill. “Gustav” is a name given to this 6 meter long, 1 ton, killing machine by Patrice Faye, a French naturalist who has spent years trying to capture Gustav.
What is terrifying about this monster is that it kills for fun, not just for food. It attacks several people in one raid, and then disappears for months, even years, only to reappear and kill again. He is Public Enemy # 1 in Burundi at present.

Aside from the growing environmental concerns we actually see everyday in almost everywhere we look, we also learn about climate change from charts and graphs such as this:

But while humanity is still divided on the issue (frustrating, I know), several agencies, universities, private groups, and concerned individuals from around the globe are rallying up to raise Climate Change awareness as much as possible, in any way possible.
As visual evidence on the disturbing effects of Climate Change pile up, a group of musicians, a composer, and a geographer decided to take on a different approach – a fascinating way to comprehend a changing climate through our ears. Because sometimes, hearing is believing.
You know what Climate Change looks like. But do you know what a hundred years of temperature change sound like?

“Working with 135 years of temperature measurements, composer Daniel Crawford wrote a piece for a string quartet.”

Each instrument represents a specific part of the Northern Hemisphere. The low notes represent cold years and the high notes warm years.
The cello matches the temperature of the equatorial zone,

The team focused on the northern latitudes because that’s where Earth’s temperatures have the most changes. Take a listen!

Beautiful, isn’t it? It would be more so if the notes didn’t represent the alarming temperature jumps on the northern latitudes. Nevertheless, the team has created a wonderful harmony that shows us how art and science can work together to beautifully communicate about climate change.
The composer says that for him, music is as scientifically valid as plotting lines on a graph.The team are working on another piece for the southern half.
