a pod of eleven killer whales - a family of two adults and nine juveniles - was discovered trapped in the ice of the hudson bay off the coast of the small inuit village of inukjuak. confined for two days in the small breathing hole, the whales began to panic as they tried unsuccessfully to find another breathing hole and their way to sea.
while an icebreaker ship would typically be brought in to free the orcas, the closest crew was thirty six hours away, so the villagers decided to cut a half mile of holes for the killer whales to travel through on their way to open water. the village mayor noted that it was unusual to see orcas in the area in january, but that the waters were late to freeze this year.

MY MOTHER HAS JUST INFORMED ME THAT IN THE 60S, THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES BOASTED AN OFFICIAL WIZARD
HIS NAME WAS IAN CHANNEL
HE WAS A SOCIOLOGIST
HE IS ALSO KNOWN AS “THE WIZARD OF NEW ZEALAND”, APPARENTLY BEING ON RECORD AS “THE COUNTRY’S ONLY OFFICIAL WIZARD” AFTER RETIRING THERE IN 1974
HE STARTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES IN 1967
AND IN 1968 THE UNIVERSITY MADE HIM THEIR OFFICIAL WIZARD
MY MOTHER WAS A STUDENT THERE DURING HIS TENURE
ACCORDING TO HER, “EVERYONE WOULD GATHER WHEN THE WIZARD WOULD SPEAK”
HIS PHD WAS CANCELLED DUE TO HIS MAKING “INSUFFICIENT PROGRESS" ON IT
HE FOUNDED A STUDENT POLITICAL GROUP CALLED THE BLACKGUARDS
AND HE LOOKED LIKE THIS
I HAVE NEVER FELT MORE PATRIOTIC THAN IN THIS MOMENT
Oh, yeah, the wizard, I think he lives in my home town now? His partner was one of my supervising teachers last year. He’s just like, yeah, he’s our wizard.
The cathedral in that picture, however, is gone.
This one time he sailed out into international waters to avoid the census because no one turns a wizard into statistics.
After a long-fought battle in Australia, a python bested a crocodile and swallowed the reptile whole over a span of several hours in Queensland, Australia.
The snake reportedly fought the croc for five hours in Lake Moondarra. Winning the fight, the python constricted its prey to death. The estimated 10-foot snake then dragged the 3-foot croc ashore and proceeded to swallow it whole in front of a group of onlookers.
National Geographic identified the snake as an olive python and the croc as a Johnson’s crocodile, both of which are native to Australia. After its hefty meal, the python should be full for at least a month.
