Jumping into a swimming pool is easy for ducks of all ages, but getting out is a different story. Watch the many ways this mama duck – along with a human helper – tries to get her babies out of a swimming pool. When simply hopping out from the side of the pool doesn't work – the rim of the pool is too high for the small ducklings – the mother leads them to a step, and later to an even higher step, but they still can't make the jump. A human with a net then offers his assistance by creating a ramp out of a raft, but they don't catch on, swimming under it instead. How about scooping them out with the net? Nope – as soon as they are scooped out they jump back in! Finally, the human assistant sets some turtle statuettes on the pool's top step, as a makeshift stepping stool, and although it's touch and go for a few moments, this last tactic saves the day.

You can find $15 earbuds almost anywhere, but at that price point, you're just hoping to get something even vaguely decent. You get what you pay for most of the time. And most of the time, that means basically junk. So if audio quality matters to you (and it should), most buyers need to step… READ THE REST
There are so many ways a math or science education can go horribly sideways. With subjects that require such intricate learning techniques to understand things correctly, all it takes is one false move for a student to be thrown off track only to find themselves hopelessly lost. Loads of young professionals who had bad experiences… READ THE REST
