Take a close look at this picture. Those aren't birds, they're people.
These people are not flying. They are falling through the air toward the ground. But they aren't afraid -- they planned this.

Can you imagine how hard it is to cooperate with 399 other people while you are falling from the sky? For most people, it's hard to cooperate with just one other person!
When these people all finally got connected, they broke a world record for the most people in a formation after jumping out of a plane. They held on for about four seconds. They jumped from 7,200m, which gave them only 83 seconds to link up.

You hear many stories of people eating unfamiliar mushrooms and giving themselves food
The sudden sharp fall in greenhouse gas emissions recorded in the early part of this year may seem like an environmental blessing, a breathing space as the world fights climate breakdown. Skies clear of aircrafts and streets free of cars have encouraged the return of nature and brought visions of a cleaner world. Carbon dioxide emissions had fallen by 17 percent on average by early April, according to a definitive study published in Nature Climate Change on May 19, as a result of the lockdown measures put in place around the world to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, the unprecedented decline
Fans around the world are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Madonna’s megahit Vogue, which became her eighth Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 on May 19, 1990, topping the chart for three weeks. With some influences of disco music, the upbeat house song set trends in dance music, and was seen as a career-defining smash that transformed her into the Queen of Pop. Vogue is from Madonna’s 1990 soundtrack for the film Dick Tracy.
