The 20 Most Gorgeous Trees From Around the World

Take a look at the 20 most beautiful trees on earth.

I have always enjoyed travelling to remote areas and visiting the countryside. I gaze at the blue sky; the mountain ranges; and the clear, turquoise water and it makes me wonder how the world looked before houses and tall edifices replaced the trees and plants in the city. I look around me and imagine a place full of vibrant colours, similar to Robin William’s 1998 movie, “What Dreams May Come.”

Being a nature lover myself, I cannot comprehend living in a place without plants such as trees because they provide us with food, shelter, and oxygen. Moreover, these living things are also beautiful to look at; all over the world, there are various kinds of trees and other plants with captivating shapes, sizes, and colours. In fact, these trees are so astonishing that they look almost unreal.

Here is a list of the 20 most beautiful trees (vines and bushes included) on Earth:

Teacher Gives His Students 15 Tasks To Do For Summer As Homework. What A Remarkable Educator!

This teacher wanted his students to have a fruitful summer so he asked them to fulfill a unique summer homework.

Summer time is the most awaited season for all students. It is their time to take a break from school, go to the beach, sleep in, and just be lazy. But of course, students also need to use this time to improve themselves, enrich what they know, and learn new things. All these and more may be on the mind of a teacher named Cesare Catà from Italy when he gave a unique homework to his students as they parted ways to welcome the summer months.

Cesare Catà is a teacher at the Polo Scolastico Paritario Don Bosco school in the coastal town of Fermo. He wanted his students to stay busy even if school was out because as what Don Bosco said, "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." So Catà gave his students a list of 15 tasks to do during the break and we bet his students will thank him later in life for such meaningful activity!

Here is the list originally published on his Facebook page:

Loyal Dog Still Patiently Waits Everyday for Master Who Passed Away

Everyone else went on with their lives except for one—Spot. She is a great testimony that love and fidelity knows no boundaries even it means through sickness and health, ’til death do them apart.

From the simple living at the rustic town of Lone Oak, Texas, there rests the placid lawnmower shop of Wayne. As time progressed, Wayne’s shop has been the conventional one-stop-shop for everyone in the area until an unfortunate incident happened—Wayne got killed by a drunk driver.

For five months, his family grieved with a heavy heart. Everyone whom he has left felt devastated by the tragic lost including his ever loyal pet dog, Spot. Back then, Spot would patiently stand at her post and wait until Wayne arrives. As the world continued at its phase, Paul, Wayne’s son, took over his father’s lawnmower business. Everyone else went on with their lives except for one—Spot.

For weeks and weeks after, Spot would stand still at her post, hoping Wayne would still be among one of the trucks to greet her until they reached home. Weeks turned to months yet no Wayne ever came back. The poor dog must really love her master that much. From time to time, Paul would be crossing paths with Spot along the way but will only follow him for a few blocks after realizing that it still wasn’t Wayne who has returned. ...

They Never Thought They Will Encounter Such A Rare River Monster This Close! Whoa!

While most of the extreme and far dangerous varieties of species are mostly lurking in the Amazon, a lot of adventurers are still always looking forward to any close encounter.

Despite the fact that many extreme and dangerous species are lurking in the Amazon, a lot of adventurers are still visiting the famed river, looking forward to having a close encounter. For years, many have endangered their lives as they check out the river, hoping to have rare experiences as they explore the vast waters. However, as these wanderers multiply, so do the probability of higher risks.

Take for example these true-bloodied brave gents whose river cruising and catching of a good bait ended to a close encounter of what is perhaps the wild’s near-to-extinction creature —the Arapaima. According to Wikipedia, the arapaima (or popularly known as either pirarucu or paiche) is a genus of bonytongues that used to dominate the vast waters of the Amazon and Essequibo basins of South America. Believed to be among the largest freshwater fish in the world, a typical kind can grow as much as 4.5 m. That’s a near 15 ft to be exact.
