Eight Year Old Makes Shocking Discovery During Snow Day
During the first snowfall of the season, kids are especially excited to go outside and play in the snow. During the first snowfall in October, an eight year old made a shocking discovery when he went outside of her home to play.
Snow in mid October in Trondheim, Norway, is not an unusual occurrence. In fact, it snows quite a bit there and since the first snow had fallen, children started going outside to begin the tradition of building snowmen and partaking in snowball fights.
After a day of playing in the snow with his friends, an eight year old was headed home. It was cold and he was trying to warm up his hands that were wet from playing in the snow all day long. When he walked by the local football field, he saw something sticking out of the snow. It turned out to be a local girl named Silje Redergard, who was five years old. She was half covered by the snow and mostly naked.
The boy recognizing the girl and ran to tell her parents what he had discovered. They didn’t believe him, but followed him back to the scene. The police had now cordoned off the area and no one could get through in order to see what was happening. Due to the state of the young girl, her parents were then driven to the police station for questioning. Police had to rule them out as suspects since suspicion in a case like this usually will fall on close family members.
The parents were ruled out as suspects, but who committed the crime? The parents could not get the image out of their head. The mother, Breathe, had heard that a neighbor had tried to resuscitate the little girl before the police had arrived. She went over to thank her for trying to save her daughter. In a shocking twist of fate, it turns out Breathe was actually about to meet her daughter’s killer.
The woman who tried to save Silje had done so because she said it was her young son that had killed her. The young boy said that he had thought Silje was sleeping and had jumped on her. He had also removed her clothes because he thought she was sleeping.
The police later revealed that Silje had gone out to play with two local boys that she had played with before. Even though the children had all played together before, something happened with the boys and they kicked, punched and threw stones at Silje where she was then left to freeze in the snow. The boys were too young to prosecute and no one has been able to figure out what lead the boys to start beating Silje in the first place. They believe the attack escalated by them beating her until she stopped crying. Some believe the boys were imitating the show Power Rangers when they began attacking. Despite her grief for losing her daughter Breathe does feel bad for the boys, since they were just young kids.
7 Of The Most Restricted Places On Earth
Life is so open these days that you can barely contemplate the notion of privacy. There was, however, once a time when you could enjoy a day, or even a week, without the neighbors knowing what you had to eat or drink. While most establishments and communities are becoming more transparent by the day, these seven areas are steadily holding to the notion that less information and exposure is more in this world.
1. Club 33
This secret spot was originally a restaurant in Disneyland. Now, it serves as the ultimate hotspot reserved only for the significant people in the world. One hundred people allegedly applied for membership to the exclusive club but not before showing proof that they had $25,000 in the bank to pay for an association.
2. Vatican Secret Archives
Italy has many beautiful spots and the Vatican Secret Archives is undoubtedly one incredible place to visit. The problem is that few, if any, will ever get to see the extensive collection of publications since the Pope has to give his stamp of approval for every person who wants to stop by for a tour. You can only view books and articles older than 75 years old, but it would still make for a great trip.
This town in Bashkortostan only has 17,000 residents and doesn’t invite visitors to tour its region often. Secretive Russian companies have serious business in Mezhgorye, which is why the federal government strictly monitors who comes in and leaves.
4. Snake Island
Brazil is such a beautiful place, but not every part of the quarters is accessible to the general public. Snake Island is off limits to human beings due to the island being inhabited by the world’s deadliest snakes. Defy these orders, and you could die.
5. Area 51
Area 51 is quite possibly one of the most controversial places in the United States. The space is officially regarded as a military installation post, but several theorists have thought the spot to be the breeding ground for UFOs and other out-of-this-world phenomena.
Sealand is not officially recognized as its own nation, but it kind of is a territory to itself. HavenCo is just off the coast of Suffolk, England, and allegedly holds some of the world’s most pertinent data. You kind of need to be invited to the getaway to see all of its wonders. It wouldn’t be wise to hold your breath waiting for an invite, though.
Bahnhof is also recognized as Wikileaks, Sweden. You know, Wikileaks, which led to a serious uproar from which the world has yet to recover. The good news is that this spot is located in the white mountain of the country, which is beautiful to no end. The scary news is that Wikileaks is surrounded by armor that makes its capable of withstanding a nuclear attack. Would you want to work in an institution as such?
It would be great to visit any one of these places but don’t count on a ticket to view any of these spectacular spots.
The Food Gordon Ramsey Won’t Eat Ever
Gordon Ramsey is a famous chef that many people have seen on TV. He is known for critiquing food and restaurants, but he really does know what he is talking about when it comes to food even though he is mostly always shouting. Off camera he is actually easy going and has a much better temperament with great taste in food. He has plenty of food and cooking tutorials that can help turn bland food into something decent, and can make even the worst chefs serve something that can be edible. With all his food experience when he says he doesn’t like something, it might be worth paying attention. So what does Gordon Ramsey refuse to eat?
Even though it seems like he is not afraid to eat anything, since he is always trying new foods on TV, it’s actually airplane food that he refuses to eat. The reason? Well, it may surprise you. He says that since he worked for airlines for 10 years he knows what happens with the food, where it has been and how long its been cooked before it’s been on board the plane. Since he knows so much about the food, he refuses to eat on the planes. While it’s not a specific type of food, no matter what it is, if it is served on a plane, he isn’t interested in it and who can blame him? Airplane food is known to be gross to many travelers worldwide.
This doesn’t mean that he goes hungry with all the travel that he is bound to do. He actually has his own restaurant named Plane Food that he will eat at when he is at Heathrow Airport in London. Anytime he is not at Heathrow, he will grab something light and his go-to food sounds absolutely delicious.
His go-to is usually some kind of Italian meats that he will pair with a fruit, usually apples or pears, and some Parmesan cheese. He enjoys that with a small glass of red wine. It sounds like Gordon Ramsey knows exactly what everyone should be eating at airports.
Besides his go-to airport food, what else does Ramsey like to enjoy with his refined palette? Ramsey has said in the past that he likes a good burger and breakfast is really important. He also has a sweet tooth.
Ramsey wasn’t always interested in cooking. He was a football player in Europe but, after an injury when he was 19, he decided to focus on a culinary education.
In addition to his restaurant in Heathrow Airport, Ramsey has a number of restaurants that are open throughout London. Other restaurants in Europe are in Italy and France. Resturants in North America include Boxwood Café in West Hollywood, Maze in New York City and a number of restaurants in Las Vegas. Ramsey is known for TV shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, MasterChef Junior and Kitchen Nightmares, and he stars in shows in both Great Britain and America.
Scientists Are Reviewing Household Amazon Products, And We Can’t Stop Giggling
Amazon is a great place for getting just about anything. But if you don’t read the reviews, you might not get what you pay for. If you’re one of those people who does this on every item that you’re thinking about purchasing, then you might want to hold on to your seat because you’re about to laugh so hard that you might not be able to compose yourself.
Scientists started reviewing products on Amazon, and you might be surprised what common household items can be used for. Who would have known that people who work in the sciences could have such great sense of humor?
We all know what paintbrushes are used for, but they might be good for people who work in neuroscience. This scientist says that these artist paintbrushes can be good for manipulating 20-micron sections of bird or fish brains in a cryostat of -20 degrees Celsius. No one would have guessed.
Vaseline is often used as a moisturizer for dry skin, but no one would have guessed that it can be mixed with skunk essence to lure black bears into a snare. According to this scientist, she only wished it would come in larger sizes because she wanted to order large amounts of it. Who would have known that such a common item had such a specialized use?
According to this scientist, colored nail polish is an essential item for any tropical first aid kit. You can use it to clear out baby maggots. Just apply it to the larvae and leave it there until it dies. After that, you can just pull it out of the area. According to
this scientist, it can be a great way to keep track of infestations throughout the season. That’s good to know in case I need to go trekking through the Amazon.
While colored nail polish can be great for people who need to do field work in a tropical hellhole, clear nail polish can be great for sealing coverslips on microscope slides. But this scientist warned people not to use the sparkly kind. Makes sense.
We all know that it’s called “superglue” for a reason. It can be used for anything from fixing a broken coffee mug to reattaching something from a sculpture or figurine, but no one would have thought that it can be used for attaching RFID tags and radio transmitters to bees. The only problem is that an angry bee can instantly attach to human skin. While it would no doubt be an unpleasant experience, you can’t stop laughing at this one.
According to this scientist, a gas-powered leaf blower/mulcher from Ryobi can make a great way to get insect samples from vegetation. He just sews some small mesh bags that he attaches with a rubber band to keep them from being chopped up. Who would have thought that a common garden appliance can be helpful for people who are involved in the study of insects?
