New studies have shown that giraffes, long thought to be unable to vocalize because of their long necks, spend the night humming to one another! The pitch of their hum is at such a low frequency that it is not audible to the human ear. The short video, below, has samples of their sounds!

We will soon be able to create energy from our own windows! Let's hope this technology will soon be affordable and readily available.
(Editor's note: While they're at it, another wise idea is to make windows bird-safe. There are a number of options. The windows in the preview photo reflect the sky. Windows should instead be slanted slightly downwards to reflect the ground to save the millions of birds who crash into glass high-rises.)
Little by little, we're moving toward a better future!

While in the United States we are caught up in politics and the transition of power--rightly so--something else has popped up in the news that may have enormous implications for the future! It's called a Sun Cell. Here's hoping... And many thanks to Brilliant Light Power for their hard work in researching and developing what the world so desperately needs. These are the true but often overlooked heroes of our time.

A new wheelchair developed by Israeli company UpNRide will soon be available that allows people to stand as well as to sit, and to shift those positions easily! This is not only excellent for muscle tone; people tend to look down on those in wheelchairs, to treat them in a patronizing way, or to overlook them entirely. Being at eye level with others will offer greater dignity for those who are mobility restricted.

William Gadoury of Quebec, Canada, is the latest of many teenaged wonders. He had always been interested in the Mayans, and over time surmised that their cities were built to correlate with the stars.
