The language only three men speak - BBC News

A dying language...
Badeshi is an almost extinct Indo-Iranian language spoken in Pakistan. In 2014 "Ethnologue, Languages of the World" stated Badeshi had not been spoken for at least three generations but in 2018 the BBC found three men who could still speak the language.

Badeshi used to be the common languages of a small mountain village in northern Pakistan - now there are only three people left who can speak it.

NASA Examines Technology To Fold Aircraft Wings In Flight

First we thought they meant the ENTIRE wings until we read the description below more closely. Still, fascinating stuff...

NASA conducts a flight test series to investigate the ability of an innovative technology to fold the outer portions of wings in flight as part of the Spanwise Adaptive Wing project, or SAW. Flight tests took place at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center in California, using an autonomous subscale UAV called Prototype Technology-Evaluation Research Aircraft, or PTERA, provided by Area-I.

NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland developed the alloy material, and worked with Boeing Research & Technology to integrate the material into an actuator. The alloy is triggered by temperature to move the outer portions of wings up or down in flight.

The ability to fold wings to the ideal position of various flight conditions may produce several aerodynamic benefits for both subsonic and supersonic aircraft.

Teen Spends $1500 A Month To Become Barbie | HOOKED ON THE LOOK

And yet another Barbie wannabe. This is what NOT to do young girls...

EIGHTEEN-year-old 'human doll' spends $1,500 each month to realise her dream of being the ultimate real-life Barbie. At the age of 16, Gabriela Jirackova, from Prague, Czech Republic, started amping up her normal beauty regime with long blonde hair extensions, massive eyelashes, permanent make-up and lip fillers. The teen, who owns 300 Barbie dolls, recently underwent her first surgical procedure, at a cost of $4,500, to take her natural C cup size breasts to a G cup. And Gabriela already has plans for more cosmetic work, including butt implants, rib removals and even bigger breast implants to help her perfect her ‘living doll’ look.
