Where are the women?

Half of the world’s population are women. Although in developed countries it has been well documented that women are unfairly represented in the higher executive ranks of companies, what is not that much reported is that the number of famous males outrun the number of famous females, too.

What language does your dog speak?

Would two animals of the same type, but from different countries “speak” the same language? German and Russian cows… French and Egyptian roosters… Indian and Italian cats… Wherever you see a dog, you know what kind of a sound it will make… or not? reports that virtually all dogs can understand the barks of […]

Gangnam Style

When I last checked, the official video in YouTube of the song Gangnam Style had been viewed more than 1 billion 800 million times. In the video the singer positions his hands like he is holding the reins of a horse, opens his legs a little and jumps up and down. What made this dance […]
