Sunday Fun and New

Sunday Fun and New

Dancers are very driven people – to say the least. No surprise here. We tend to focus with laser intensity on anything and everything related to ballet every single day. And that’s okay. But to keep your motivation high it helps to divert your focus onto something totally different once in awhile.

Learn something fun and new every day. In this age of computers it’s easy. For instance, here are some fun facts:  In 2017 an eighth continent may have been discovered, beneath New Zealand. Scientists call it Zealandia. I’m not making this up. http://www.geosociety.org/gsatoday/archive/27/3/article/GSATG321A.1.htm

Or, this one: Astronomers discovered seven planets outside our solar system (40 light years away), and three of them are in the “habitable zone”. Hmmmm. https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-telescope-reveals-largest-batch-of-earth-size-habitable-zone-planets-around

Or, yet another one: In Panama, scientists discovered loud shrimp. Seriously. These shrimp use their large claw to make a noise equal to 210 decibels (a rock concert is 110-140 decibels). What did the scientists name this new shrimp?  Synalpheus pinkfloydi – because the scientists love Pink Floyd. https://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2017/04/12/523577797/a-shrimp-that-can-kill-with-sound-is-named-after-pink-floyd

There you have it. Look for things that are fun and new – things you can’t make up!
