Mom Abandons Her Baby, Now Watch What The Cameraman Does. UNBELIEVABLE! It all started one sunny spring morning, when a YouTube user named Darius watched two baby whitetail deer being born in his backyard. He noticed of the babies had an injured leg and struggled to keep up with Mom. Sadly, the baby’s mother and sibling abandoned him right there on Darius’ property. Knowing the baby would surely die on her own, the homeowner — and passionate animal lover — decided to take in the fragile fawn and nurse her back to health.

Progress Is a Double-Edge Sword. That's Why It's so Important We Colonize Mars by Natalie Shoemaker Stephen Hawking believes that despite all the progress humanity has made in advancing science and technology over the years, we are also creating a number of "new ways things can go wrong.” We are at risk of facing a disaster of our own making. "Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or 10,000 years,” he told the BBC.

EWAO Continued Research Supports The ‘Water Has Memory’ Theory These amazing discoveries about the properties of water could revolutionize our world! By MindBodySoulSpirit Filmmaker and mystic ecologist David Sereda discussed some of the amazing properties of water– it may actually have memory and consciousness, he said. Human beings are mostly made up of water and he suggested that restructured water could have healing properties on their bodies.

In The 1950s, Wives Were Expected To Do THIS For Their Husbands. This Is Crazy?!? It’s so fascinating to learn about how people used to live — especially when we discover that not much has really changed. However, sometimes you come across some old traditions that you simply can’t believe people ever followed — like these odd dating rituals throughout history. But what women in the 1950s were expected to do for their husbands? Well, those traditions have certainly flown right out the window! What's Really Warming the World? Climate deniers blame natural factors; NASA data proves otherwise Climate scientists tend not to report climate results in whole temperatures. Instead, they talk about how the annual temperature departs from an average, or baseline. They call these departures "anomalies." They do this because temperature anomalies are more consistent in an area than absolute temperatures are. For example, the absolute temperature atop the Empire State Building may be different by several degrees than the absolute temperature at New York’s LaGuardia Airport. But the differences from their own averages are likely to be about the same.

Beth Moon Photographs The World’s Oldest Trees Illuminated By Starlight Ancient trees affected by cosmic rays are the subject of The “Diamond Nights” project by San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon. Moon has spent the last 14 years photographing the world’s oldest trees in daylight, but this series captures them at night. Her photos feature primarily baobab and quiver trees in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. “Our relationship to the wild has always played an important role in my work. This series was inspired by two fascinating, scientific studies that connect tree growth with celestial movement and astral cycles,” explains Moon on her website. The first study concluded that cosmic radiation impacts tree growth even more than annual temperature or rainfall; the second found that tree buds change size and shape directly correlating to the moon and planets.

Child Grows up With 2 Gorillas. 12 Years Later, They Reunite In The Wild. I’m Speechless. For 15 years, conservationist Damian Aspinall has been working to reintroduce captive gorillas to the wild. In 2003, Damian released Djalta and Bimms — two western lowland gorillas he raised from when they were babies — into the forests of West Africa. Over the years, Damian revisited the pair of gorillas, but his daughter Tansy hadn’t seen them in 12 years. So, in 2014, Damian brought Tansy into the wild to try and find Djalta and Bimms. He wasn’t sure if they would remember Tansy, the once little girl who was raised right alongside her gorilla friends.
