Toddler Besties Running Into Each Other on the Street is Everything

 

Two New York City toddlers are melting the Internet with their heartwarming greeting. The two-year-old boys, Maxwell and Finnegan, have been inseparable since meeting a year ago.

Maxwell’s father, Michael Cisneros, posted the adorable video on Facebook, and it has since been shared on Twitter, Instagram, and reddit, as well as countless news stations across the globe.

In an interview with ABC News, Cisneros adds:

“When they are away from each other, they are always asking about one another,” he said. “They go to music class together, Dana Banana (a weekly music event) and they love to dance — both are excellent dancers.”

So Tigers Have Eyespots on their Back as Intimidation When They Drink

 

How cool is this? Apparently tigers have eyespots on their back as a form of mimicry to warn off any potential predators/attackers (not that tigers have many).

A daily occurrence that leaves tigers particularly vulnerable is when they lower their heads to get a drink of water. By having these eyespot markings on their fur, potential attackers may think twice about an ambush.

Below you can see another example of these fascinating eyespots. Nature is amazing!

This Surgeon Has Restored Sight to 130,000 of Nepal’s Blind

 

Dr. Sanduk Ruit is an ophthalmologist on a mission to restore sight to Nepal’s blind. He is the executive director of the nonprofit Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu, Nepal, and has operated on more than 130,000 patients.

He has adopted innovative surgical techniques for cataracts and often travels to perform operations, walking up to seven days hauling surgical equipment to reach patients who live in Nepal’s most remote villages. Why does Dr. Ruit do this? He lost family to treatable diseases and knows what it’s like not to have access to healthcare.
