Study: Cinderella's Glass Slipper Has Been Scientifically Disproven.
Warning: If you haven't seen the movie 'Cinderella' before, be warned - there's about to be some spoilers. For everyone else, just some swift crushing of childhood dreams. This week, a scientific study published by the University of Leicester's Department of Physics and Astronomy proved that Cinderella's glass slipper - you know, the one she wore to the ball - would have been completely unusable. Yes, the shoes you've seen her box-stepping with Prince Charming at the ball in would have shattered the instant that she tried to walk in them - which would have made it impossible for her to move around in. (But much easier to be found, right? I mean, all you'd have to do is follow the bloody footprints. Just kidding. That's gross.) The team determined this by making some assumptions about the storybook character and the shoes that she wore that night. To give the story the benefit of the doubt, they took down her shoe size as a size 6, the smallest of women's average shoe size range. They also decided that her shoes were made out of soda lime glass, the most commonly used glass material. They then move into some pretty intense math before concluding that, even if Cinderella was an extremely slim girl, she would only be able to stand in her heels - not run or walk in them like she does in the story. If she were to move around in them, the heel have to be 1.15 cm - less than half an inch - which certainly wasn't the case in the fairy tale's many film adaptions. Do you think the study is valid, or was the Fairy Godmother just that good at making shoes? How does it feel to having scientists tell you that fairy tales lie?

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
