Gaddafi’s bodyguards
Often called Amazon Guard, they were female elite bodyguards of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Meanwhile, their official name was “revolutionary nuns”, or “green nuns”. The detachment consisted entirely of women who had received special military training. The division formed in the early 1980s, a few years after his resignation from the post of Gaddafi Libyan state and acceptance of of another title. In particular, the leader of the revolution together with the declaration of Libya’s Jamahiriya. However, the reasons for creating such a unit is unclear. According to the most common version, Gaddafi allegedly suggested that Arab terrorists, the victim of which he could be, will not be able to shoot at women. And another version, though more prosaic – female bodyguard was just one of the bizarre ways to attract the attention of the world.
Traditionally, 15 “Amazons” accompanied Gaddafi during his visits through the country and abroad. Noteworthy, in 1998 one of his bodyguards had saved his life at the cost of her own.

Kevin Richardson the lion whisper
World famous zoologist and animal behaviorist Kevin Richardson has been working with wild animals for more than 10 years. In particular, with lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas. According to Richardson, he does not use the usual methods of animal training and not trying to subjugate their will with the help of sticks and chains. Instead, he uses love, understanding and trust. In fact, Kevin has always shown an interest in all types of creatures large and small. Even from an early age at just 3, he was breeding crickets under his bed and keeping a pet toad called “Paddatjie”. He grew from a young boy who cared for so many animals to so-called “The Bird Man of Orange Grove” in his home town. Also from an adolescent who ran wild and, finally, to a man who is able to cross the divide between humans and predators.

Like any other holiday — much less one founded just two generations ago by hippies — Earth Day has its share of grinches, complaining about eco-sanctimony and whining that it hasn’t solved the world’s problems. (Isn’t Christmas terrible? All those gifts, and we still have war!) And then there’s the slightly confused hangers-on: did you know that Major League Baseball “has spent more than a century largely bracing against and defying Mother Nature, working alongside her in a kind of grounds-keeping pact”?

Loneliness makes people feel literally cold
According to psychologists, people feeling excluded found a room more chilly than those who felt loved and included. Lonely people also chose comforting hot soup or coffee, rather than a soft beverage, to drink. The study, by the University of Toronto, suggests that raising the temperature could help someone who is feeling low in the same way that people with seasonal affective disorder are helped with light therapy.
