For centuries we have built the world we live in riddled with obstacles. You may not see it, but spend a day in a wheelchair and it will become painfully obvious. Every little step is like a mountain. Since the introduction of the Equality Act many buildings have struggled to make sure their wheelchair accessible. Installing ramps is often impossible for various reasons, but fortunately there’s more elegant solution, fitting for a world of technology we live in. At first these look like ordinary stairs, blending with the façade, but watch what happens when you press the button. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]
I was a bit confused when this video started. Just a group of people rubbing their palms together and snapping their fingers doesn’t look like a video worthy of 5 million YouTube views, but then I closed my eyes and in an instant I realized what they were trying do. Rustling of the leaves, raindrops, I could almost see it. From that moment on, every passing second of it I was becoming more and more sure this is one of my favorite videos ever. The only thing better than that opening is the moment when they start singing. You’ll be [More]
Some things just happen spontaneously and take you in the direction you never anticipated they’d go. Take this mom-to-be for example. One day she was Skyping with her husband deployed somewhere in Asia and the next thing she knows Ellen is sending him a box full of underwear. Things like that happen sometimes, LOL. After reading the E-mail and the odd request her fan sent to her, the funny talk show host knew she had to do something about it and the surprises just kept on rolling. This is why I watch her show. Funny, unexpected and awesome. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]
As she herself admitted, this girl prefers reading a book over doing things other kids her age do like playing games or hanging out with other people, but judging by her audition, reading is not the only thing she does in her spare time. She also sings. Danie was getting lots of attention before the audition both for how cute she is and her awkward social skills. I hope she gets used to it because there will be lots more of it once she becomes a star and judging by the video you’re about to see, it’s only a matter [More]
In scorching heat a bucket of water is a precious commodity. This guy who runs a Sustainable Living Field Laboratory in Southwest Texas decided to put a camera in a bucket of water and film who shows up. Not surprisingly, the footage he captured became viral sensation. From insects to birds and mammals, it seems that all the animals nearby wanted too cool off that day. Sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that give the most unexpected results. I could watch this forever. P.S. If you worry about the bees, don’t, they were saved… goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create youtube player [More]
While magic acts are nothing new on BGT, this 8 year-old Harry Potter fan called Issy Simpson is one of the youngest ever. Inspired by her grandfather, she’s been practicing magic for the past three years. The audience was stunned by the youngster’s supremely mature manner, but lets wait and see if her talent was enough to secure her a place in the next round. goviralhasPoppedUp = false; // create youtube player var tag = document.createElement(‘script’); tag.src = “http:\/\/www.youtube.com/player_api”; var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag); var player; function onYouTubePlayerAPIReady() { player = new YT.Player(‘player’, { height: ‘450’, width: ‘100%’, wmode: [More]
I don’t really get fashion but I couldn’t imagine someone getting this emotional over a new pair of sunglasses… and that’s when I realized these aren’t your regular shades. Little Xavier has been color blind his entire life. Since he was born all he could see were shades of grey and  black and white, but today he got his early birthday present, a pair of special glasses that enable people like him to see colors. On this beautiful sunny day Xavier saw all of nature’s beauty in full color for the first time ever and if that isn’t enough for [More]
Opposites attract, that’s true, but when it comes to fashion these two couldn’t be further apart. Brendan is a laid back kind of guy with a wardrobe full of jeans and T-shirts and a hippie attitude while his girlfriend is a fashion forward glam girl. Recently Rachael Ray tried to bridge the gap in style just a little bit and then THIS happened. If you think Brendan’s makeover would make his girl speechless, you’re right, but that’s nothing compared to the surprised he prepared for her only seconds later. I just love her reaction. I think they’ll both remember this [More]
Saving an animal from certain death is surely rewarding, releasing it back into the wild even more so, but what happened in this video makes my heart sing. It’s a rescue story of a little baby otter that fell into a canal while searching for its mom and dad. He struggled to stay afloat but fortunately he was rescued by a local resident. After waiting for a while for the pup’s parents to return the animal rescue was called. The little guy spent a week there recovering so when they eventually took him out to the beach to release him, [More]
OMG, I can understand why the commentators’ voices were cracking… this is without a doubt the best comeback in sporting history. It was the last lap of the relay race and there was a clear leader. However the huge gap between her and the rest of the runners soon started to close. It was clear that the girl who was second at that point would overtake her by the end of the race. No one knew that’s not even half of the drama that took place in the final stretch. I would tell you to pay attention to the girl [More]
