The Elephant

  1. The African elephant is not just the largest living land animal but it has an enormous brain size to match. Their brains can weigh up to a whopping 5.4kg and are, without doubt, the largest brain of all animals living on land.
  2. Need help remembering which is an African elephant and which is an Asian elephant? Check out their ears! African elephant ears are, rather helpfully, the shape of Africa.
  3. Have you ever seen an elephant swim? It’s pretty special! But not only can they swim, did you know they’ve also been spotted using their trunks as a snorkel when crossing rivers?! Now that’s handy…
  4. Elephant family groups are very close. While they can’t exactly hug each other, elephants do wrap their trunks around younger relatives to reassure them and to greet each other they twine their trunks together.
  5. Elephants are super smart! They can both learn and feel emotions. If a member of their family group is injured, the rest of the group may come and help it. They also know when a family member is no longer in the herd and it’s a truly heart-breaking sight to see an elephant grieve over the bones of lost family and friends.
  6. Female elephants have the longest pregnancy of any mammal. It’s a lengthy 22 months before baby elephants are ready to be born!
  7. Baby elephants stay with mum for up to 10 years. They even learn to eat by putting their trunks inside their mothers’ mouths to take food.
  8. Did you know elephants can get sunburned? Ouch! These giants bathe in mud to help protect their skin from the sun.
  9. You definitely don’t want to get in the way of a charging elephant. It’s said they can reach speeds of 40km/h!
  10. Elephants make sounds that we can’t even hear. Some of their calls are so low, they are below the range of human hearing. And these amazing animals can recognise over 100 different friends from their calls alone.

The Giving Pledge. Microsoft founder Bill Gates encourages the Giving Pledge, a notion that, if you are fortunate enough, you should be giving 50 percent of your wealth to those who need it most. As of 2013, he has donated $28 billion and has saved around 6 million lives by bringing vaccines and better healthcare to people worldwide.

High heels were originally for men (The origin of high-heels can be traced back to 15th century Persia when soldiers wore them to help secure their feet in stirrups. Persian migrants brought the shoe trend to Europe, where male aristocrats wore them to appear taller and more formidable)

iPhone: The first mobile device to be called an "iPhone" was made by Cisco, not Apple. It allowed the user to use the voice functions of Skype without a computer. Apple announced its own product just 22 days later, and Cisco sued for trademark infringement. The lawsuit was ultimately settled out of court and both companies were allowed to keep using the name. However, you've probably never heard of the Cisco iPhone.

Kleenex tissues originally used as gas masks. When there was a cotton shortage during World War I, Kimberly-Clark developed a thin, flat cotton substitute that the army tried to use as a filter in gas masks. The war ended before scientists perfected the material for gas masks, so the company redeveloped it to be smoother and softer, then marketed Kleenex as facial tissue instead.

Movie trailers originally played AFTER the movie.

They “trailed” the feature film—hence the name. The first trailer appeared in 1912 and was for a Broadway show, not a movie.

NASA can "email" tools to astronauts, thanks to 3D printing (Getting new equipment to the Space Station used to take months or even years, depending on the launch resupply schedule. On some exploration missions, re-supply with tools is almost impossible even if it is a life or death matter. But thanks to the 3D technology, the tools needed in the Space Station can be ready within hours. Made In Space Inc., is a northern California company that NASA contracted to design, build and operate 3D printers that are sent to the space station with the intention of securing tools needed by the astronauts in the fastest wat possible. This means that the whole process can be conducted via an email with the 3D design sent from Earth, and a few hours of the 3D printer in space working to bring the tool to life)
