This Great-Grandmother Makes The Meals Her Family Survived On During The Depression

This Great-Grandmother Makes The Meals Her Family Survived On During The Depression

One of my biggest regrets is not taking advantage of the stories my 90-year-old grandmother could have shared with me while she was alive. Like Clara Cannucciari, who has also now passed on, my grandmother lived through the Great Depression and likely could have shared similar recipes with me if I’d given her the chance. Thankfully, Clara’s family had the good sense to capture her warmth, stories, and recipes before it was too late. Each of the delightful videos showcases a meal Clara and her family survived on during one of the bleakest eras in U.S. history. Even while pushing a century on this planet, Clara’s sweet personality shines through the camera while she peels potatoes, sautés onions, and serves up the dishes they were able to piece together on their meager funds. Watching as she blends together the ingredients and listening to her memories of the time will fill […]

Backyard Security Camera Catches A Bear Beating The Heat With A Swim

When you live close to a forest or in a wooded area, you’re bound to encounter some wildlife around your home. Most of the time, though, the animals are only there in search of some food, not a relaxing dip in your backyard pool! One man decided to check his security camera after he came home and found that his backyard fence was broken. What he saw was a black bear that had decided to beat the heat with a quick swim. This bear’s got it all figured out…all he needs now is a poolside mojito. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/bear-pool/

If Your Spouse Never Orders Fries And Then Eats Yours, You'll Understand This Dog

If Your Spouse Never Orders Fries And Then Eats Yours, You’ll Understand This Dog

Most of us are probably a lot more protective of our food than we’d like to admit. Whenever I bring a tasty treat home and my loved ones try to steal more than a bite, I get pretty testy and make it obvious that I’m less than pleased with their attempt at poaching my meal. That’s why I completely understand this dog’s beef with her owner. When he took his pup’s bone out of her mouth and playfully pretended to eat it, she wasn’t having it at all — so she hilariously fought back. “Give it back now or I’ll release the rage of all my furry ancestors.” Read More: 15 Animals That Don’t Give A Damn About Our Stupid Human Laws If there’s one thing to be learned here, it’s to never underestimate the bond between a dog and her treats.

People Thought There Was A Ghost In This Video, But Here’s What’s Really Going On

It seems like every day there’s a new paranormal video waiting to go viral. Whether it’s an old, abandoned hospital, or a suburban family’s house, the spirits just seem to be out in full force. And since it’s Halloween, it’s important to know that everything you see isn’t always what it seems. And while most haunted clips are less fact than fiction, a secondary school in Cork, Ireland, claimed that their latest closed-circuit television footage was in fact the real deal. The Deerpark Christian Brothers School uploadedsecurity camera footage from their school that have many believing the school grounds are haunted. In the video, a “ghost” appears to be opening and closing doors. The now-viral video has been picked up by a variety of news outlets and has been viewed more than 12 million times in just a few weeks. Speaking to the authenticity of the video clip, Aaron Wolfe, […]

This Soccer Star Tattooed 50 Names On His Body For An Amazing Reason

Zlatan Ibrahimović is one of the most famous soccer players in the world. A fan favorite, he’s instantly recognizable, and people chant his name everywhere he goes. But for him, this is a problem. Not because he’s shy or unappreciative of his fans — but because there are over 800 million people around the world whose names should be chanted instead. Before the February 14, 2015 match between Paris Saint-German and Caen at Parc des Princes, he put the finishing touches on 50 names that are symbolic of a global crisis. During the game, he removed his jersey and brought these names to the forefront. What they represent will break you heart.

What They Caught This Tiny Hamster Doing Is Beyond Hilarious

Hamsters are adorable little pets that have crawled their way into the hearts of many families across the country.

Doctors Didn't Think This 2-Pound Baby Would Survive, But She Proved Them Wrong

Doctors Didn’t Think This 2-Pound Baby Would Survive, But She Proved Them Wrong

Watching a child deal with medical complications is every parent’s worst nightmare. The most devastating conditions of all are the ones that children are born with. Not many little ones have to face that reality, but for those who do, life is made all the more difficult. Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley is a 12-year-old girl who was born with an extremely rare disease called primordial dwarfism, which results in stunted growth and vascular issues. Most people with primordial dwarfism don’t live past the age of 30, but that hasn’t stopped Kenadie from enjoying every second of her amazing life. Primordial dwarfism starts in the womb. Babies affected by the disease start experiencing stunted growth before they’re even born. YouTube / Barcroft TV When Kenadie was born, doctors didn’t expect her to survive very long outside of the hospital. Not only was she small in size, but she exhibited all the symptoms of […]

If You Ever Find Yourself Traveling In Norway, Look Out For This Stunning Monument

If You Ever Find Yourself Traveling In Norway, Look Out For This Stunning Monument

The fabric of early human history is often woven with factual and fictional threads, mingling the bullet points found in textbooks with the legends and lore that bring timelines to life. These stories, passed down from generation to generation, humanize the past. Detailed histories can’t be boiled down into numbered lists. Monuments and works of art have a penchant for embodying this interplay between fact and fiction, and Norway’s Sverd i fjell is no different. Roughly translating to Swords in Mountain, the Sverd i fjell monument is comprised of three hulking swords that represent the unification of warring Norwegian factions under one banner. Flickr / Stine Homann While this unification process actually happened over the course of a few centuries, the Battle of Hafrsfjord, which some scholars estimate took place in the year 872, symbolizes those efforts. That is the event to which this monument is dedicated. Flickr / Gunnar […]

The Most Wonderful Time Of Year Was Awful For These Dogs Until Heroes Stepped In

The Most Wonderful Time Of Year Was Awful For These Dogs Until Heroes Stepped In

Most of us spend Christmas relaxing and enjoying the company of our loved ones. The people who make up this animal rescue organization, on the other hand, spent their holiday season saving lives. Hope For Paws in Los Angeles, California, is known for rescuing stray and injured animals, tirelessly working to give them a second chance at life. Rescues like the ones they pull off are hardly ever easy or convenient, but these kindhearted heroes still do it. That’s because they’re dedicated to helping homeless pets find forever homes and live the best lives they can, as demonstrated by the two heartwarming stories below. Back in November, Hope For Paws volunteers received a call about Gershwin, a dog who’d been hanging around a gas station for two months. They realized pretty quickly that he was afraid of men, so Loreta Frankonyte jumped in and began coaxing the dog toward her […]

You Might Recognize These Movies, But Once The Music Starts, They’ll Never Be The Same

Classic dance numbers in movies are unforgettable. Who can forget seeing Gene Kelly spinning around that light post in Singin’ In The Rain? It’s a scene that will live on in cinema history forever. Well, one creative mind decided to mash up these classic dance moves with contemporary music. In the process, this creator breathed new life into the performances we all know and love. Even though “Uptown Funk” was only released earlier this year, it has a timeless feel that goes perfectly with these awesome routines. People should do things like this more often! It’s always good to nod to the performers who still inspire dancers and musicians to this day. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dance-mashup/

As Cambridge's Most Brilliant Scholars Spoke, Something Incredible Happened

As Cambridge’s Most Brilliant Scholars Spoke, Something Incredible Happened

Everyone knows that Cambridge is one of the most prestigious universities in the world, and since its foundation in the year 1209, this celebrated institution has built up an impressive alumni roster. From John Dryden to Sir Isaac Newton, the institution has cultivated some of the most brilliant minds in human history. The university hosts countless conferences every year. This year, a gathering of minds called “Dear World…Yours, Cambridge” attracted scholars from around the world who studied within the hallowed walls of Cambridge’s 31 colleges to discuss the institution’s impact worldwide. As they spoke in the King’s College Chapel, their inspiring words were brought to life by a mesmerizing display of lights. Paris-based digital projection artist Miguel Chevalier created a series of projections that helped illustrate each speaker’s purpose and perspective. He used the King’s College Chapel — which was built in the 16th century — as his canvas. Miguel […]

Scribds new unlimited plan for audiobooks and e-books might be an avid readers dream

Avid audiobook nerds tired of dealing with Audible’s nonsense or long library queues now have a new way to get a steady stream of the good stuff. Scribd just announced it will be reinstating an unlimited plan offering relatively unfettered access to e-books, audiobooks, news, magazines, documents and sheet music. Unfortunately, the service sounds like it won’t be truly unlimited, capping downloads and streams at a certain point, but given how hard it can be to download a damn audiobook, it might still be a good option for those who prefer the digital or spoken page. Whatever that hidden cap is, the new plan bumps Scribd users up from the previous three e-book and one audiobook monthly limit. (Any audiobook fan could tell you that one a month just isn’t enough to get by!)

At last an end to geoblocking in Europe? Nope, not by a long chalk

The European Commission is holding a press conference later today to trumpet progress made on ending “unjustified geoblocking”, as it tells it, with the stated aim of greasing the wheels of pan-EU ecommerce in time for Christmas. Which, from a consumer point of view, sounds great. Unfortunately it’s not quite as great as it sounds. Especially if you were imagining it would apply to popular digital media streaming services like Spotify and Netflix. Nope, sorry. Geoblocks for digital media are not being vanquished in this round of EU Digital Single Market regulation chess. What is being agreed by EU lawmakers is an end to geoblocks for the sale of goods and services — just not if the electronic services in question happen to be stuff like, er, streaming music, TV, video and so on… Don’t be fooled if a speaker says that we abolished #geoblocking, though. We didn’t. Only for buying […]

Guilty Dog Hilariously Tries To Hide A Sandwich In His Mouth  Nice Try, Guy!

Guilty Dog Hilariously Tries To Hide A Sandwich In His Mouth Nice Try, Guy!

If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know and understand that sometimes they attempt to steal some of your food. If it’s in clear view, it’s pretty much fair game — at least in their opinion. The instant you look away from whatever you are eating, an opportunistic dog will pounce on that delicious human food. When Sabin saw his mom had made a tasty sandwich, his first thought was probably: “For me? You shouldn’t have!” Watch as she hilariously tracks down her lunch in the funniest place… If you think this is the only case of dogs squirreling food away in their mouths, think again! They may be man’s best friend, but they are also no-good scoundrels when it comes to getting their paws on some human noms. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dog-sandwich/

People Are Drinking 'Raw' Water In Newest Fad That'll Make You Give Up On Humanity

People Are Drinking ‘Raw’ Water In Newest Fad That’ll Make You Give Up On Humanity

It seems that almost every year, a ridiculous (and sometimes dangerous) new health fad emerges, and 2018 isn’t any different. With the real threat of our water supplies being contaminated (read: Flint, Michigan), it’s completely understandable that more people are suspicious about what constitutes safe drinking water. For example, there has always been a huge controversy about fluoride in publicly supplied water, though it’s meant to boost dental health. However, some have taken this distrust too far, sparking a so-called “raw water” movement. Now companies like Live Water are selling unfiltered, unsterilized, and untreated spring water for hefty prices particularly in West Coast areas like Silicon Valley and San Francisco. According to the company, which sells 11-liter bottles for $37 a pop, filtering water removes “beneficial sources of minerals and probiotics.” They even go as far to say tap water is part of some governmental mind-control conspiracy. Yep, you read […]

What This Chimp Did At The 3:10 Mark Of This Video Choked Me Up. It’s A Must See.

Jane Goodall is a British primatologist that is known for being the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees. She has a great love of animals, but most of all chimps. She formed the Jane Goodall Institute, an international wildlife and environment conservation organization, to help protect those animals she loves so dearly. Some of the work that the Institute does is truly moving. This story of a chimp they brought back from death’s door, for example, is incredible. In the Republic of Congo, the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center found a chimpanzee that was near death. They called her “Wounda,” which meant “close to dying.” You’ll see why. Wounda was barely alive when she was found. The rescue had to take immediate action to save her life. Jane Goodall Institute Thanks to Dr. Rebeca Atencia, Wounda came back from the dead. The rescue fed her and tended to her […]

What's Stacked Up In A Pile In The Grand Canyon Is Seriously Crazy. How Is This Possible?

What’s Stacked Up In A Pile In The Grand Canyon Is Seriously Crazy. How Is This Possible?

Think of everyone that is currently alive on Earth. That is 7.2 billion people. We have caused wars, climate change and countless other large-scale events. Now, what do you think 7.2 billion people would look like all in one place. (You would think a race capable of doing such important things would look pretty impressive.) The Vsauce video channel decided to do an experiment and estimate what the world’s population would look like all in one place like the Grand Canyon. The result was not what we expected. The 7.2 BILLION people on Earth would only form this small pile in the Grand Canyon. Vsauce Billions of people don’t even come close to filling the Grand Canyon. In fact, the world’s population only creates a small pile. If you took all of humanity throughout history (an estimated 106 billion) and put them in the Grand Canyon, it would only make 15 piles across […]

A Passionate Animal Lover Knits Abused Chickens Tiny Sweaters To Keep Them Warm In Fowl Weather

A Passionate Animal Lover Knits Abused Chickens Tiny Sweaters To Keep Them Warm In Fowl Weather

Battery hens are birds that are kept in tiny cages and are raised only to be slaughtered for food. The conditions are horrendous…but sometimes, these birds are rescued. Nicola Congdon and her mother, Ann, have been rescuing and rehoming battery chickens for some years. Recently, Nicola discovered that the overstressed birds would be too cold outside because of their lack of proper feathers. She decided to do something about it — and make them their own wooly winter sweaters to keep them warm. Abused birds will often over-preen themselves and pull out most of their feathers. This is an action caused by stress…and these comfy sweaters are what these birds need to stay warm! Instead of charging for the mini-sweaters she makes, Nicola will be accepting donations for an AIDS orphanage in South Africa, where the money goes straight to the orphans. (via Daily Mail) It’s truly wonderful what Nicola […]

The little guy can’t hold back the tears as he explains to his mother that the food she prepared for him is just too darn cute to eat.

It's Time To Give Up On Humanity In Light Of The Tide Pods Challenge

It’s Time To Give Up On Humanity In Light Of The Tide Pods Challenge

Every generation has made their share of questionable decisions, but what teens and other young people are doing nowadays is seriously risky, not to mention incredibly stupid. In recent months, videos circulating on social media have shown kids participating in a disturbing fad — biting down on laundry-detergent packets (namely Tide Pods) or letting them dissolve in their mouths. While the pods have for some time presented a hazard to disabled adults and small children who mistake their bright colors for candy, those who take on the “Tide Pods challenge” are purposefully putting themselves in danger for meaningless internet points. In 2013, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warned parents about what could happen if their kids eat liquid laundry packets or capsules, stating, “children who have ingested detergent from the packets have required medical attention and hospitalization for loss of consciousness, excessive vomiting, drowsiness, throat swelling, and difficulty breathing.” […]

Youtube Star Pays Off His Parents’ Mortgage, And Gets Their Reaction On Video.

Talk about a good son. When Timothy DeLaGhetto, a comedian and rapper from California, dropped out of college five years ago his parents were worried. DeLaGhetto quit school to focus on his entertainment career.  “My parents always wanted me to stay in school and get a degree,” said DeLaGhetto. Despite their wishes that he stay in school, DeLaGhetto’s parents supported him while he pursued his dreams.  Earlier this week their faith in their son was rewarded. DeLaGhetto hand delivered them a check for $210,000 to pay off their mortgage, in addition to another $130,000 he paid the bank for their house. The best part though? He caught it all on video.   The message of the video, DeLaGhetto said, was that he wants people to remember not to take their family for granted. There is still some goodness in the world.

Colorado natives Barbi and Dan have what they refer to as a “dog problem.” The problem? They really, really love dogs. There’s no better example of their compassion for canines than this amazing wheelchair they created for one of their dogs, a corgi named Bentley. He was recently diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy (or DM for short). The disease includes symptoms similar to Multiple Sclerosis in humans and Bentley’s adorable little legs had lost a lot of strength.

Sneaky Cat Gets Trapped In New Staircase And Has To Be Drilled Out

If I had to pinpoint the reason behind my being a dog person instead of loving up on some fluffy kitties, it would probably be because cats are just too sneaky for their own good. Have you ever noticed how cats just slink around the house like they’re up to no good? Leave them alone for just a few minutes and chances are they’ll find a way to get into something they have no business being in and tear up the place. Just ask this cat from Norway. As a family finished up their renovation project of building a staircase for their new home, their beloved cat Sverre had gone missing. The couple and their two children searched high and low for the kitty but sadly turned up empty-handed. Following the move from their old home to their new residence, Sverre no longer enjoyed going outside to play, so the […]

It Seems Like She's Just Doing Her Makeup At A Desk, But Look At What She's Using!

It Seems Like She’s Just Doing Her Makeup At A Desk, But Look At What She’s Using!

I’m pretty much in awe of people who can pull off amazing makeup looks. I’m pretty much just an eyeliner and mascara girl because I never learned how to use all the brushes and products. Some people are real whizzes, though, and I love watching them create beauty tutorials. In many cases, it’s actually art, and it’s great to see people expressing themselves through their look.

Watching Shaolin Monks Stretch Is A Truly Alarming Experience

Watching Shaolin Monks Stretch Is A Truly Alarming Experience

As a young boy, every time I would see or hear about Shaolin monks in movies, for whatever reason, I would associate them with magic. And while the monks themselves may not have magical powers, there’s definitely something magical in the way they stretch and contort their bodies into just about every shape and position. At the heart of their quest for peace and tranquility is a lot and lot of dynamic stretching. These stretches involve opening up the hips and warming up the leg muscles and have been performed by Shaolin monks for thousands of years. Not only are these stretching exercises incredibly helpful to their health and wellness, but they’re also amazing to watch. While some of their stretching poses look like something you’d do before a sporting event… …others will leave you speechless at the many ways the monks can twist and contort their bodies. Their flexibility […]

Apple could be redesigning the iBooks app

As AppleInsider first spotted, the first beta of iOS 11.3 includes a subtle change. iBooks is now called Books. And Mark Gurman thinks it could be a sign that there will be bigger changes with Apple’s ebook reading app. According to Bloomberg, Apple is working on a new design for the iBooks app on the iPhone and iPad. It will feature a simpler interface with a new section called ‘Reading Now’. Instead of having to scroll through your library to find the book you’re currently reading, this section will highlight your current book. Audio books could also get a dedicated tab. And this is probably the biggest and most telling change. Apple has been selling audio books in the iTunes Store for years. But it doesn’t really make sense that you have to open the Music app to listen to audio books. That’s why Apple could move audio books to […]

Walmart and Rakuten partner on grocery delivery in Japan, Kobo e-books and audiobooks in U.S.

Walmart today announced a major expansion in terms of its global e-commerce presence: the retailer is entering a strategic partnership with Tokyo-based Rakuten, which will see the companies collaborating on the launch of a new online grocery service in Japan, and the sale of e-readers, audiobooks and e-books in the U.S., via Rakuten-owned Kobo. The strategic alliance is one that has two of the world’s largest e-commerce retailers joining forcing in an effort to combat Amazon, and is yet another example of how Walmart is using large-scale partnerships to aid in that battle. For example, Walmart last year teamed up with Google in order to have an entry point in the voice-assisted shopping space, by way of Google Home smart speakers – an area where Amazon’s Alexa has mopped up market share. In this new partnership, Walmart says it and Rakuten will co-create an online grocery service in Japan that […]
