Metro

As we all know, every woman in the world is desperate for Donald Trump to rate their physical appearance.

So Heidi Klum must have been crying into her pillow when she learned that the politician would no longer score her a ten in the looks department.

But bravely, after overcoming the grief of his assessment (disclaimer: we’re being ever so slightly sarcastic), Heidi has dusted herself down and responded in an amazing way.

Taking to Instagram, Heidi uploaded this video – and we adore her for it:

Trump had made his comments about Heidi ‘sadly no longer being a ten’ to the New York Times and Klum’s video shows a man wearing a Trump mask tearing off her ’10’ T-shirt and exposing her as a mere 9.99.

This Time-Lapse Video of Flowers Blooming Will Fix Everything That Is Stressing You

This just goes to show that nature is pretty magical.

TIME

Spanish engineering student-turned-artist, David de los Santos Gil, who made waves with a stunning time-lapse video of flowers blooming in 2014, released a second video in the series this week that is equally as enchanting. The video, which is again scored by composer Roger Subirana with relaxing, uplifting music, features, among others, hyacinth, hibiscus, daisy, cactus, iris, almond blossom, amaryllis and gladiolus blooms.

In a blog post written after he released the first video, Gil wrote that he used basic camera equipment in his home to complete the time lapse, taking a total of 50,000 photos at intervals between one and ten minutes. (The second video required only 40,000.)

The process was not without its complications: “Over about every three photos I had to throw out two,” he wrote, saying the issues he encountered ranged from the classic changing light to the more unusual plague of insects.

Like Gil’s…

I hope the perpetrators are found. Why are humans so cruel. The poor alpacas did nothing to deserve this. They seem do defenceless and docile too. Just horrific.

The men chucked plastic chairs at the animals, called Bill and Ben, as they slept outside Danesmoor Nursing Home in Rossendale, Lancashire.

The footage also shows one of the men chasing one of the alpacas – which suffers from a broken leg – around the field.

Global News

TORONTO – A NASA camera is giving us a glimpse at what it would look like if we were out in space looking back at Earth from 1.5 million kilometres away.

NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory is a satellite that is monitoring the solar wind and will allow us better monitoring of its effect on Earth. On board DSCOVR is the Earth Polycrhomatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four megapixel camera that monitors the planet’s ozone, vegetation and aerosols as well as cloud heights.

This baby jaguar was clearly feeling brave.

But curiosity could have killed the cat, after she found herself in troubled water.

The video was posted online this week by the Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation, based in Mexico.

It shows jaguar Cielo, who nearly ended up being sold to a pet shop owner, who would have drugged her to take photos with the public for profit.
