One man in Malaysia has had a tweet going viral after his cat ate his degree from the University of Nottingham.
In actual fact his cat Mika only ate a corner and his degree certificate is just damaged but not destroyed. This tweet sparked a conversation with over 2000 people responding and some sending pictures of the damage their cats have done on their degrees and other valuable objects.
Even the University of Nottingham replied saying “Didn’t realise our degrees were so tasty. I’m purrfectly sure we can sort something out (re. the certificate, not the behaviour of your cat). The Uni is closed until 4 Jan, I’ll speak to our Graduation team when we’re back. ^Anne”
It’s very important that you keep your degree certificate away from your pet if you don’t want to have the same thing happening to you.
It snowed even in Malibu, California
It’s fairly rare to get snow in London but it’s even rarer to get it in Malibu. The Southern California city is more well known for his beaches and surfing than its ski pistes but we are living in strange times. It’s near Los Angeles after all.
The snow came with a storm on Saturday, it probably looks more like hail than proper snow but it’s still a rare sight. There are two more storms forecasted for the next few days. The mountain community just outside Malibu is expected to get up to a foot of snow in the next few days.
Deputies assisting CHP – West Valley on another roll over, this one is on Malibu Canyon… and yes that is snow on the ground😳. If you need to be on the roads, please #slowdown and keep your 👀 eyes on the road. @thelocalmalibu @MalibuNews @acornnewspaper @TheMalibuTimes @991KBU pic.twitter.com/mgOPXWp6rp— LASD Lost Hills Stn.

A bookshop that sells books for the visually impaired opens in Paris
Two French publishing houses have opened a specialized bookshop in Paris, in the Pantheon area, called the “Librairie des grands caractères”, a way to grant even the visually impaired the luxury of a walk among books. And the sensual pleasure of touching and breathing paper.
Customers are those who suffer from vision-related problems, due to disease or age and we are talking of over a million people in a country like France.
And these books are specialò the paper is made so as not to dazzle, the line spacing is studied, the contrast is never excessive, even and the character is not that of traditional books but an ad hoc one, called Luciole.
One more reason not to abandon reading on paper is, in the case of some totally or partially reversible eye diseases, its important rehabilitative power for sight.
Unfortunately the catalogue of books for visually impaired people is still very limited, it has only about 600 titles.
Edinburgh the happiest city in the UK
A Smart Survey survey revealed that the happiest city in the UK is Edinburgh. The reasons are the quality of life, the high salaries, the average working hours per week and the beauty of the city.
Two seaside towns follow in second and third place: Bournemouth and Brighton.
In fourth place we find Southend and in fifth Bristol. Followed by Colchester and then Glasgow in eighth place.
In ninth place we have both Liverpool and Manchester and in tenth Milton Keynes.
London is in thirteenth place, takes points for the average high salaries but loses some for the many hours of average work per week.
