Cutest Squirrel Photo Session Ever Captured By Russian Photographer

squirrel-photography-russia-vadim-trunov-7

Meet Vadim Trunov, a Russian photographer with a true talent for photographing wildlife. While it’s hard not to love all of his work, this cute squirrel photo shoot is one of his best yet. The personalities of the squirrels come to life as they interact, tossing snowballs at one another and even taking turns behind the camera lens.

The 30-year-old photographer has had a couple of close encounters with squirrels in the past, but this is his most interactive to date! While it looks like these squirrels are building snowmen and goofing off, the truth is a bit less fantastical. It’s the dead of winter and these squirrels are really hungry, and all they want to do is find some food to eat. Which is exactly what Trunov left out for bait, squirrel food.

Watch the cutest squirrels ever battle it out for one yummy pinecone!

Pontypool girl’s prosthetic hand made with 3D printer

Cian and Emilie showing off their prosthetic hands

An eight-year-old girl has been given a new hand, made with a 3D printer.

Emilie from Pontypool, Torfaen, was born with a partially-formed left hand.

Designers at Cardiff Metropolitan University used a template to print her prosthetic hand over three days before combining it with Velcro and wires within two hours.

Her mother, Sade, said: “There’s not a lot that Emilie can’t do… But her new hand will mean she won’t feel shy about her disability anymore.”

Emilie’s family heard about the technology on social media after the university designed a hand for five-year-old Cian from Llwynypia, Rhondda Cynon Taff.

And Cian has helped show Emilie how her new hand works – it is operated by bending their wrists.

Martijn Gommeren from the university said: “We are now developing a programme to teach Emilie and Cian’s families how to use the software and printers to enable them to make a new one when needed.”

Hiker finds 1,200-year-old Viking sword in Norway

Viking sword

Norway is known for its spirit of friluftsliv, or “free air life,” which emphasizes outdoor activities in nature like hiking and skiing. And as one hiker in southeastern Norway recently discovered, friluftsliv can be a double-edged sword — literally.

During a hike near the mountain village of Haukeli earlier this month, outdoorsman Goran Olsen had stopped for a rest when he noticed a strange object hidden under some rocks. Upon closer inspection, the object turned out to be an ancient Viking sword, which experts estimate to be roughly 1,265 years old. Aside from a little rust and a missing handle, the artifact is remarkably well-preserved.

ormer Prime Minister Tony Blair “misrepresented” military intelligence in order to secure approval to invade Iraq in 2003, Dr Hans Blix, the head of the UN inspection team at the time, has revealed.

Blix, who inspected Iraq for weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) before the US and British-led invasion, told former-Telegraph journalist Peter Oborne the intelligence gathered was not accurately represented by Blair.

Oborne, along with Dr David Morrison, has worked with the BBC to compile an alternative report into the 2003 invasion. The official inquiry led by Sir John Chilcot has been plagued with delays and will not be published until summer 2016.
