Clouded Leopards are two species of wild cat that live throughout the forests of Southeast Asia. The smallest of the big cats, they are secretive and rare in the wild, preferring to remain alone and hidden from view. Because of this, studying them is a unique challenge, and while we know much from watching cats in captivity, these two species of cat remain elusive and poorly understood. Clouded Leopards primarily live in lowland tropical rainforests, but can also be found in dry woodlands and secondary forests. They have been spotted at elevations up to 9000 feet in the Himalayan mountains. Historically, their range covered most of Southeast Asia from Nepal and southern China through Thailand, Indonesia, and Borneo. However, this range has shrunk due to habitat destruction and human poaching. cloud 9

The reason why hair turns gray as we age is because the pigment cells in the hair follicle start to die, which is responsible for producing “melanin” which gives the hair colour.

The Great Pyramids used to be as white as snow because they were encased in a bright limestone that has worn off over the years.

Yes, the big news is about a pitta in the south. But no, it’s not the Gurneys or Great Pitta we are talking here; it’s the King of the Forest. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present …. Malayan Banded Pitta, in all its splendor! While far more common than Giant Pitta and less revered than the Gurney’s Pitta, most birders would gladly go out of their way to see this pitta, even if it meant sitting in a hide for a few hours. Many birders and photographers agree that despite the coverage Gurney’s gets for being a rare specimen, the Banded is far more beautiful and photogenic. Its vibrant colors blend together so perfectly and make this bird one of the favorites among avian enthusiasts the world 9

It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra, based on the short story "The Greatest Gift", which Philip Van Doren Stern wrote in 1939 and published privately in 1945.[4] The film is now among the most popular in American cinema and because of numerous television showings in the 1980s has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season. The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be had he never been born.

Henry Fonda and Cary Grant were in the running to play the role of George Bailey, played by James Stewart.

While the film is one of the most beloved Christmas movies of all time, it was a box office flop and only made $3.3 million during its initial run. The film failed to recoup the $3.7 million cost.

The movie was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture, but it did not win any of them.

In the scene where Donna Reed‘s character Mary Hatch throws a rock through a window in the Granville House, a marksman was hired to shoot it for her, but she was able to hit the mark on her own thanks to her perfect aim!

This was Donna Reed‘s first starring role even though she had appeared in many other films. Another actress in the running for the role was Jean Arthur.

The film was on television all the time for a good twenty year period as its copyright lapsed in 1974. Any network that wanted to show it was able to do so without paying any royalties until 1994

The movie might be set in the winter, but it was filmed in the middle of summer so there are several moments where James Stewart is seen sweating despite it snowing!

The FBI was not a fan of the film and the bureau released a statement in 1947 saying that the movie was a potential “Communist infiltration of the motion picture industry.” :O

James Stewart, Donna Reed, and director Frank Capra have all said this was their favorite movie they ever made.

Zuzu Bailey: Look, Daddy. Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.

George Bailey: That's right, that's right.

George Bailey: Attaboy, Clarence.
