US film of parachuting beavers found after 65 years (it's OK, they survived) More than half a century after a group of beavers were parachuted into the Idaho backcountry, the state’s department of fish and game has uncovered film footage of the quirky wildlife management moment.

US film of parachuting beavers found after 65 years (it's OK, they survived)

In the 1940s the department was trying to deal with an overpopulation of beavers in some regions when wildlife managers settled on a novel idea. They captured beavers and other fur-bearing rodents, packed them into boxes, attached parachutes and dropped them from a plane into the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Boise state public radio reports that a film made around 1950 showed the infamous beaver drops, but it had long been lost. Recently, fish and game historian Sharon Clark found the fragile film, which had been mislabeled and stored in the wrong file. Now it has been digitized and released by the Idaho Historical Society and the department of fish and game on YouTube. Animal lovers, take heart: it appears all beavers survived their flying adventures unharmed. Esl-bits.net - ESL English Listening - Audiobooks for ESL Students and Adult Literacy - adult-literacy.us.

Michelle Obama Gets Her Freak on With Missy Elliott and James Corden in Carpool Karaoke

On Wednesday night, Coolest First Lady Michelle Obama went for a quick spin with James Corden on The Late Late Show and performed an instant-classic round of Carpool Karaoke—with an unexpected guest at the end, Missy Elliott. It’s official: we, the people, have the most viral First Lady ever. Obama and Corden started by jamming to one of her favorite artists, Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.” Obama admitted that she hasn’t gotten to rock out in a car in ages, which makes this momentous occasion (almost) as special for her as it is for all of us. Another fun fact? It wasn’t long before the focus shifted to girl-power jams: first, Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies”—which, we should all note, Obama knows by heart, complete with hand-waving choreography.
