The new president of the United States of America, Joe Biden, was not knocked down by his tenacious opponent Donald Trump, but by his playful German shepherd Major who, between one race and another, caused the president a microfracture in the right foot, with the obligation to wear a brace for several weeks.

Facing the protest were 20.000 gendarmes and policemen, far too few to keep the protest at bay and ensure safety.

The loneliest elephant in the world, Kavaan, was transferred to Cambodia on 35 November after spending 29 years in a dilapidated zoo in Pakistan.
After the long period of solitude and due to constant mistreatment, the poor elephant began to suffer from physical and mental health problems.
Fortunately, in 2015, a group of animal rights activists started a rescue campaign for Kaavan. Free The Wild, an animal welfare organization co-founded by American pop star Cher, was the first to commit to animal protection by making a major contribution to the relocation confirmed on May 21, 2020 by the Islamabad High Court.
In the first phase of the transfer, Kaavan will be placed in solitary confinement for a month after arriving in Cambodia, and will subsequently live with 3 other Asian elephants.
In the meantime, Cher arrived in Islamabad and attended Kaavan's farewell ceremony and was later received by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan who publicly thanked on Twitter for the successful transfer of Kaavan to Cambodia.

An Austrian village that has about a hundred people, in recent years has been attacked and publicly mocked for its misunderstanding name: FUCKING (which evokes the well-known insult in English).
After the advent of the internet there was no lack of teasing and the countless photos taken under the sign at the entrance to the town have mocked and tired the inhabitants to the point of forcing them to a drastic decision, the official change of the name from FUCKING to FUGGING .
A not entirely easy undertaking, which has always seen the residents near the sign in favor of the name change, while the inhabitants inside the village opposed because they are linked to the origin of their town.
