Beatrix Potter tale Kitty-in-Boots uncovered after 100 years

A new story written by Beatrix Potter more than 100 years ago, featuring Peter Rabbit, is to be published for the first time.

The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots was rediscovered by publisher Jo Hanks after she found a reference to it in an out-of-print Potter biography, according to BBC.

Quentin Blake, best known for his work with Roald Dahl, has illustrated the story, to be published in September.

Have aliens become EXTINCT?

Astronomers have spent decades scouring the heavens for signals from aliens on other planets, but to no avail.

Rather than being too far away, or too technologically advanced for us to spot, however, researchers now believe there is a much simpler reason our efforts have been met with deafening silence - ET is already extinct.

A group of astrobiologists has claimed that life on other planets, if it managed to get going at all, would likely be brief and would die out quickly.

Art of etiquette

Talks and deals tactfully are the key to reach others’ hearts and minds, and have the capability to draw attentions.

Besides, they are the most important secrets to reach people’s hearts.

We may like the outside look of someone for a minute, but we certainly like this person for a long time if that person has good manners with good speech.

People that are good in the art of etiquette with others are the most happiest in life.

It’s not hard to learn some steps of that art of etiquette, you should not interrupt other’s conversations or take the whole speech to yourself, and you should smile while you talk to someone and don’t try to know other’s secrets and special lives.

 You should choose some nice and fit words in your speech with other and avoid the loud voice and drop-out when the conversation became loud.

Speed reading DOESN'T work

Researchers studying the techniques and apps available say they don't work.

They looked at decades of research - and concluded speed readers don't remember what they read.

Reading is a complex 'dance' among various visual and mental processes, and research shows that skilled readers already read quickly, averaging 200 to 400 words per minute.

Some speed reading technologies claim to offer an additional boost by eliminating the need to make eye movements by presenting words rapidly in the center of a computer screen or mobile device, with each new word replacing the previous word.

'Examining decades' worth of research on the science of reading, a team of psychological scientists finds little evidence to support speed reading as a shortcut to understanding and remembering large volumes of written content in a short period of time,' they said.

The animal that lives for 10,000 years

Brine shrimp are also not shrimp, but they do belong to the same group, the crustaceans. They are tiny, just 15mm long. They eat algae, which they filter out of the water. They swim upside-down and breathe through their legs, and females do not need a male to reproduce.

Crucially, they have a unique affinity for salt. They can tolerate concentrations up to 50%. Such water is far saltier than the ocean, which is only about 3.5% salt, and the salt will be on the verge of precipitating out as a solid.
