Intresting Facts

Did you know that chocolate can actually protect your teeth against tooth decay?

And that, 95% of us report washing our hands after using a public toilet….but a study of 8,000 people in big US cities found that the figure was actually closer to 67%? (Gross!)

Cats happily climb up trees, but do you know why they can’t find their way down?

Turns out a cat can’t climb down headfirst because every claw on its paw points the same way. To get down from a tree, a cat must back down

Random Fact: 

October is both American Cheese Month and Toilet Tank Repair Month. I don’t think Hallmark has caught wind of that yet.

Random Fact: 

Drinking too much water can be fatal. Water intoxication is a potentially fatal disturbance that is caused by consuming too much water during a short time. The normal balance of electrolytes in the body is pushed outside safe limits when too much water floods the system. Infants are prone to water intoxication, as are athletes, and even competitive eaters. Symptoms of this condition include changes in behavior, confusion, irritability and drowsiness. Occasionally there is difficulty breathing, muscle weakness and pain or twitching. The brain may swell which can interfere with the central nervous system, resulting in seizure, brain damage, coma or even death. That does NOT mean you should stop drinking water!

Random Fact: 

In space, one day, our days will be twenty-five hours long instead of twenty-four. Though not for another one-hundred-forty years, as the earth imperceptibly slows approximately 17 milliseconds per hundred years.

Random Fact : 

While children of identical twins are legally first cousins, genetically, they are actually half siblings. I found this one particularly interesting because I have twin daughters.

Random Fact :

While Neil Armstrong got to be the first to take a step on the moon, Buzz Aldrin managed his own historic first, becoming the first person to urinate on the moon. (Take that, Mr. One Small Step!)


Play Acting

I was at school when I saw this little girl being very rude to another.

When I asked her what she was doing she simply said “PLAY ACTING CAN’T YOU SEE??????” There is this other phrase that goes “Sticks and stones can beak my bones but word could never hurt me.”

Well news flash, they can. Do you think that you don’t pick on anyone until Christmas?

Ancient diamonds have been found near the Earth’s core!

It’s not every day that you stumble across one of the World’s precious stones , but a group of scientists have made a pretty remarkable discovery!

Ancient diamonds – which are older than the Moon – have been discovered 410 kilometers below the Earth’s surface hidden in the planet’s mantle. The planets mantel  is the mostly-solid bulk of Earth’s interior. The mantel lies between Earth’s dense, super-heated core and its thin outer layer, the crust. The mantel is about 2,900 kilometers (1,802 miles) thick, and makes up a whopping 84% of Earth’s total volume!

The rocks are thought to have been sitting close to the Earth’s core for more than 4.5 billion years until a volcanic eruption in Brazil caused them to move closer to the surface.

The discovery has proven to be a very exciting one and researchers believe the diamonds can help them learn more about the Earth’s internal structure.

They were also able to extract helium gas from 23 super-deep diamonds in Juina, Brazil.

Super-deep diamonds can provide scientists with more information about how the Earth was formed as they carry impurities from many years ago.

The scientists were able to work out that the diamonds had come from an area 410 to 660 kilometers below the Earth’s surface! They are believed to have started out in a reservoir sitting either around or underneath this area.

The researchers are still unsure about the size and make up of the reservoir, but the recent discovery has allowed scientists to make some welcomed progress.

Ariana Grande’s Tour in the UK

Ariana Grande is back in the UK! Ariana has started her Sweetener World Tour with her first show at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday 17 August 2019.

As part of the tour, she will also be heading to Birmingham, Glasgow and Sheffield to do some performances.

Ariana announced she would be headlining Pride festival in Manchester, and said on her social media: “we are still working on something a little more special for you guys. it takes a while to put these things together but hopefully i can tell you when i see you at pride. i love u. hope that’s alright.”

For those of you who were lucky enough to get your hands on tickets to see Ariana, here are some things you should know ahead of the show.

1. Security is pretty tight

There is a big focus on making the Sweetener tour safe for everyone attending. Due to the attack in Birmingham.

Ariana tagged a post saying that she was encouraging all her fans that were coming to have a small plastic bag. She also said that the security would be very ‘strict and smooth’. Fans can only carry one clear bag and it can’t be any bigger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″. All your belongings must be visible inside the bag (so no bags within bags!).

If you have any medication, medical items can be taken with you if need them and these will be inspected at the venue.

Cameras and recording devices aren’t allowed in the venue, although mobile phones are allowed.

If you’re under 15, make sure you have a responsible adult over the age of 18 with you.

2. The setlist is epic

Fans can expect to hear a load of songs, after the first London performance included a whopping 24 in total.

Tracks came from her two latest albums Sweetener and Thank U Next, as well as her previous albums.

There will be tunes that make you want to get up and dance, as well as heartfelt ballads that you can sing along to at the top of your lungs. You better get learning those words!

3. Choreography is key

If you are going to one of her concerts have fun!
