    Sebastian Vettel may not be having the happiest of times on the track at the moment. However, he hasn’t let his miserable performances affect his mood. The German was happy to share a humorous story with some fans, about his time in India during the 2013 Indian Grand Prix. Everyone has some interesting tipsy tales to bring up into conversations every now and then. And the 4-time World champion is no exception. Vettel said, “When we won the championship in 2013, we had a little bit of a party in a bar. We had some drinks, and I had too many drinks. Then I was driving back, at some point of the morning, to the airport. I was half dozing...
    Raonic and Schwartzman keep their distance A photograph published a couple of days ago of the end of the training between Milos Raonic and Diego Schwartzman in the Bahamas has done the Canadian tennis player no favors. And it is that the male circuit has been scandalized by the overweight of the Podgorica giant. In reference to that, former tennis player Mariano Zabaleta threw a question on the air about what Raonic had eaten during confinement due to the pandemic. The answer came from Fabio Fognini: “An elephant”. With just two weeks to go until the Cincinnati Masters 1,000 kick-off, some players look fitter than others for the American hard court tour. Raonic, number 30...
    These startling images show an elephant escaping being hit by a train by a whisker - as it crosses the tracks perilously close to an oncoming train. The image, taken by wildlife photographer Rupak Dastidar, shows the danger elephants in the Indian forest face after a train line was built that cuts straight through the forest. Dozens of elephants are killed every year after being hit by trains - which resulted in a speed limit being introduced for trains in a bid to save lives of elephants.

    In mid-December, Aaron Raby shot and killed an elephant. Hours later, he had a piece of it for dinner, with a side of sliced tomato and avocado. A self-described “blue-collar” Los Angeles crane operator, Raby paid more than $30,000 for the once-in-a-lifetime experience — traveling more than 10,000 miles to South Africa to shoot and kill the tusked pachyderm. He then paid roughly $10,000 to have its head preserved as a souvenir of his adventure. Yet Raby may never receive his trophy — which is still in South Africa being prepared by a taxidermist — if California enacts new legislation, Senate Bill 1175. The legislation, which has passed the state Senate and is expected to pass the Assembly on Tuesday,...

    Fox News anchor Chris Wallace found himself entangled in a weird and bizarre debate with President Donald Trump over the president’s cognitive tests boasts, pointing out how easy the test is and that one of the questions merely asks the taker to identify a picture of an elephant. Speaking to Fox News host and close confidant Sean Hannity earlier this month, the president bragged that Walter Reed doctors were “very surprised” that he recently “aced” a cognitive test, calling on former Vice President Joe Biden to take the same exam. “They said, ‘that’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did,’ Trump told Hannity on July 9. “But [Biden] should take that same test.” In a tense...

    Elephants are utterly magnificent beings. When seen in the wild, they appear like creatures from another world, and their size and grace is so humbling to a mere human. It is near impossible not to be absolutely floored by the sight of a real life pachyderm, and what could be more astounding than watching a gentle elephant use his trunk to paint a picture of a flower? This encounter would surely be the most peaceful, beautiful experience one is likely to ever have. But wait; let’s take a step back for a moment. Under what circumstances would you come across an elephant painting a picture in the wild? Last we checked, plains of Thailand didn’t have a craft corner… ...
