It shouldn’t take an animal attack to remind us of nature’s unbreakable law. You can take a lion out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the lion. To be specific, the animal involved in this story is technically still a lion cub. But, of course, the same condition applies. In any case, the animal is already way more powerful than the baby.

Things seemed fine at first.

The animal attack happened on the Mexican TV talk show, Con Sello de Mujer. Roughly translated, the title means A Woman’s Seal. The show ran from 1998 to 2007. It focused on topics that mostly appealed to women such as health and beauty.

For some reason, the video clip involving the lion cub attacking a little girl has been getting a lot of buzz lately. This just goes to show that unforgettable encounters are timeless.

We don’t know why the lion cub was in the studio that day. We only see that it was placed right there with a mother who had the little girl on her lap.

The lion cub suddenly lunged at the toddler.

The Daily Mail observed: “At the start of the video everything looks to be under control as two handlers sit with the wild animal on a lead and talk to the show’s presenter. The lion cub sits on the floor and appears to be quite calm until the baby starts to whine — a sound that sends it into a frenzy.”

Things suddenly got very scary.

Thankfully, the trainers eventually managed to separate the lion cub from the toddler. It was then led offstage. The toddler’s mom seemed to brush off what could have been a very deadly encounter with a wild animal. Fortunately, the little girl didn’t sustain any injuries from the lion cub’s overeager attention.

Let this be a lesson to everyone. Some wild animals never really get fully domesticated. From time to time, they will indulge in their instinct to hunt down their chosen prey.

While news from the 2016 Rio Olympics often highlight the winners, let's not forget that there are losers as well. Then again, they always say that sports isn't about winning — it's about how you play the game. It's also about your ability to keep going even after you suffer defeat. This may explain why the failed dives of two Filipino athletes at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games or SEA Games in Singapore are once again being discussed.

On June 10, 2015, two Filipino divers — John Elmerson Fabriga and John David Pahoyo — participated in the men's three-meter springboard event of the SEA Games. At that time, Fabriga was 21 and Pahoyo was 17.

It has been more than two years since the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 bound for China went missing. It was March 8, 2014 when the Boeing 777 aircraft vanished without a trace along with its 227 passengers and 12 in-flight crew. After all this time, the relatives of the MH370 passengers haven't gotten any closure yet. Various speculations have arisen from conspiracy theories, terrorist takeover, alien abductions and whatnot. After the intensive search and rescue operations made by the joint efforts of various nations, nothing concrete turned up. Search operations went as far as the areas near Perth, Australia but yielded unfruitful results. Years later, washed up airplane parts are rekindling the MH370 case anew. Could these artifacts tell the untold story of the world's most mysterious airplane crash?

Just a bit of a refresher on the MH370 flight path and the areas searched so far...

12 days before the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics draws to a close, the question whether it is one of the most ill-prepared Olympics held ever is evident. It seems that not only are the athletes facing off against other skilled athletes from all around the world for those Olympics medals, but also with the ill-prepared accommodations and venues of the events. We have gathered some of the issues and incidents reported about the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics which point to this conclusion.

1. Athletes' and media's accommodations "unlivable" and hazardous

To house the thousands of athletes, coaches, and media that will cover the event, Rio has allotted accommodations called the Olympic Village and Media Village. However, it seems that the preparations are not enough and resulted to the rooms being criticized by the athletes and news reporters. The Australian delegates are the first to point it out saying that,

"Problems include blocked toilets, leaking pipes, exposed wiring, darkened stairwells where no lighting has been installed, and dirty floors in need of a massive clean. In operations areas, water has come through the ceiling resulting in large puddles on the floor around cabling and wiring."
