ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY:

On this day in 2018, Drake surpasses The Beatles record of most singles in Billboard Hot One 100 with seven against their five from his album “Scorpion.”  

IT'S A CELEBRATION:

National Kitten Day!

Kittens! Who doesn’t love tiny, adorable kittens? …their big heads, giant eyes, tiny pink paws and noses, and the adorable mews they make…. We can’t resist their cute and furry charms. Surprisingly Americans seem to like cats and kittens best: According to the American Humane Society, 95.6 million cats were owned, while 83.3 million households owned a dog. There is certainly nothing wrong with dogs, but a tiny kitten is irresistible!

So join us on July 10, as we celebrate National Kitten Day! 

BRAIN TEASER:

Answers! 

  1. Monday: There are not gray dots in the grid. However “ghostlike” gray blobs are perceived at the intersections of the white lines. The gray dots disappear when looking directly at an intersection.This illusion can be explained by a neural process happening in the visual system called lateral inhibition (the capacity of an active neuron to reduce the activity of its neighbors)
  2. Tuesday: 3
  3. Wednesday: Stare at the yellow stripe in the middle of the fish in the picture below for about 10–20 sec. Then move your gaze to the fish bowl.
  4. Thursday: The two horizontal lines are of the same length, even though the one at the bottomseemslonger.As you know, the visual angle gets smaller with distance, so the brain automatically perceives objects at farther distances to be bigger.
