Teenage Dancer Mimics Real-Life Barbie In Mind-Blowing Performance

Most little girls grew up playing with a Barbie. She was impossibly skinny and her movements were almost robotic — because she only bent in certain spots, and, well, we controlled her every move.

We all learned that Barbie wasn’t a real person. Surely, no one moved that way or looked like that in real life, right? That’s where we were wrong, though. Nineteen-year-old self-proclaimed animation dancer and “possibly a real-life robot,” Dytto is basically Barbie in the flesh.

Dytto has been dancing for years, but she was largely brought into the pop culture spotlight by Ellen DeGeneres. The TV host invited the young dancer on her show after watching a video of her World of Dance routine in 2015.

Her unique style — a combination of popping, animation, and tutting creates a truly mind-blowing performance. While talking with Ellen, Dytto made sure to point out how she’s different from other dancers, saying that she adds feminine flairs amidst a largely male-dominated genre.

The video of her routine at the World of Dance competition was set to a remix of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” and it’s easy to see why she picked it. Dytto mimics Barbie’s moves like it’s second nature.

Of course, she adds some of her own moves that make the dance truly hers. If you’ve never seen someone pop (moving your body in quick, mechanical steps) or tut (similar movements with your hands and fingers), this is a performance to watch. You won’t be able to take your eyes off her!

See the video below and don’t forget to share Dytto’s phenomenal talents with your friends.

Arizona man arrested over Phoenix serial street kilings

Police said on Monday that a 23-year-old Arizona man had been arrested in connection with street shootings that terrorized the Phoenix area over four months last year.

The man, Aaron Saucedo – initially arrested April 19 for a fatal shooting in 2015 – was re-booked Monday into a Maricopa County jail.

He now faces 26 charges related to the serial street shootings that happened from March to July 2016.

Making the announcement on Monday afternoon, Police Chief Jeri Williams revealed that at least two additional murders had been linked to the serial shooter, bringing the death toll to nine.

Investigators also recently added to the series of shootings an incident in August 2015, when shots were fired into a house, but no one was hurt.

The addition brings the total shootings to 12.

The announcement comes after weeks of speculations and unconfirmed reports on the investigations.

According to Williams, about 3,300 tips from the community ultimately led to Saucedo.

“We hope that our community will rest a little easier and that our officers will get a little more sleep, knowing our wheels of justice are finally in motion at work,” she said.

Last month, Saucedo was arrested and held on a $750,000 bond on suspicion of murdering 61-year-old Raul Romero in August 2015.

Romero had been dating the suspect’s mother at the time of his death.

And on Monday, police connected Romero’s death with what were dubbed the “Serial Street Shootings” at the time.

Romero’s death was also linked to the shooting of 22-year-old Jesse Olivas. Olivas was killed in a drive-by-shooting on Jan. 1, 2016.

Unlike Romero, the rest of the victims were seemingly picked at random. They were returning home from work, visiting family, or lounging in their yards when a phantom assailant gunned them down.

Witnesses and survivors described the gunman as a slender, young, Hispanic man, but couldn’t agree on the vehicle’s model.

Police said that the suspects could have had access to multiple vehicles at the time, but circulated a stock photo of a car one witness described in detail; a black BMW 5 series, late 1990s to early 2000s.

Artificial intelligence (AI) in phones set to change the mobile industry

In the past one year, artificial intelligence in phones has actually come of age.

Apple pioneered the technology in 2011 by incorporating this technology in its Apple Siri hit iPhones, and from that point on there has been no looking back. Now, more apps and more technological gadgets are increasingly using AI. In the future, AI will frequently take up roles of instructors and could also be used for teaching according to technology pundits.

And now, Samsung is rumored to launch its own virtual assistant that will come with the Galaxy S8 set to be launched in February 2017.

Sammobile which is a community of Samsung users, which shares news, reviews, as well as tutorials, has reported that AI will be used in all the apps that will come pre-loaded with the Galaxy S8.

Samsungs AI development got a significant boost when it bought Viv Labs which is an Artificial Intelligence software company that is based in the United States. Viv Labs are the same company that was behind Apple’s Siri technology. The new AI assistant in the Galaxy S8 will have a male voice called Bixby and a female voice, Kestra.

The Galaxy S8 will also try and have a more powerful and intelligent assistant that will take the place of the previously used S Voice and will also compete with Google’s and Apples Assistant and Siri respectively.

It will be equipped with a system-wide reach and an Application Program Interface(API), that will also accommodate third party developers.

13 other witnesses to testify in Bill Cosby’s case

Bill Cosby was accused of drugging and raping Constand in the 80s. The accused came fourth in 2005 when she said that she could not stand the anxiety any longer, and the veteran actor has to come to justice.
After her accusation, more than 20 women have come forth and said that they too were sexually assaulted by the actor. He appealed his sentencing when his lawyers argued that most of the women were white and perhaps targeted him due to his race and money. The lawyers also claimed that he was a wealthy man who could be an easy target for the women. Many of the women had priors making their testimony even more questionable.

However, the prosecution is seeking to include 13 of the women’s statements as evidence. The court is also looking to use a telephone recording where Cosby seems to explain what he is doing to the women. The tape was thrown out as the court deemed it illegal.

“Mr. Cosby is no stranger to discrimination and racial hatred, and throughout his career, Mr. Cosby has always used his voice and his celebrity to highlight the commonalities and has portrayed the differences that are not negative,” said Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt. No matter the race, gender, and religion of a person.”

But the prosecution bluntly rejected the plea, saying that Cosby was playing the victim, and it was “pathetic.” The prosecution argued it was not a racial witch hunt stating that many of his victims were black women as well.

A first: Oregon to offer third gender option on state IDs

Oregon has become the first state in the nation to offer a third gender option on state identification cards. Now, Oregonians can choose to mark an X instead of M for male and F for female.

“It’s exciting to see Oregon’s Department of Motor Vehicles adopt this change, ” said Basic Rights Oregon Co-Executive Director Nancy Hague, in a statement. “We know gender is a spectrum and some people don’t identify as male or female.”

Oregon is the first state to give legal recognition to ‘non-binary,’ intersex, and gender people on identification cards. The new rule goes into effect July 3.

“I’ve trembled with the fear of failure and cried tears until I had no more tears to cry, because of the magnitude of what’s been at stake — and now won,” said Army vet Jamie Shupe, who is the first in the U.S. legally to change their gender to non-binary, in an NBC News report. “But in the end, the huge legal and non-binary civil rights battle that I expected to unfold going into this never came to pass; simply because this was always the right thing to do all along.”

Non-gender specific markers have been used for years in some other countries, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Nepal.

During public hearings held in May in Eugene and Portland, 71 people spoke in support of adding the new X marker. Only 12 people opposed the measure.

The World’s Strangest Airports

Millions of people use airports every day. And let’s be honest, most folks don’t want to spend more time at the airport than they need to. Because why bother? They are all the same. When you’ve seen one, you’ve probably seen them all – right?
Not quite. While most of the airports are practically identical, there are some that would fascinate you with their unique qualities. Whether it’s because of size, physical location or building design, we’ve found 8 airports that are so wacky and bizarre that they require more than just a pass-through.

1. Denver International Airport
Denver International Airport, Denver, Colorado, USA, is the 15th busiest airport in the world by passenger volume (5th in the U.S.), and has been a topic of conspiracy talk since it opened. Rumor has it that it was built over some top secret underground base. Only the millions of prairie dogs that live in burrows around the airport know for sure! If you take a look at the runway shape, it looks curiously like a swastika (well, at least from above). There is also the strange artwork on the airport walls that have been described as disturbing and has come under much scrutiny.

2. Agatti Airport
This unique airport, located in India, is the only airport in the world that is completely surrounded by water. Its runway is only 4,000ft long and is considered to be short and dangerous. Odd maybe because you land and then have to take a boat to your final destination. Have a nice vacation!

3. Congonhas Airport
This one is Brazil’s second busiest airport and located just a few miles from the busy city center. It looks awfully like your landing in Central Park in New York, don’t you think? Because of the airport’s close proximity to the city, it’s a real challenge for pilots to land a flight.

4. Ice Runway

It’s not exactly an airport…This is more like an isolated runway, located in Antarctica. Ice Runway serves as a landing zone for planes that bring food and supplies to over 1,000 scientists who live and work at McMurdo Station. The planes are usually large and heavy. That’s why during the summer, when the ice is too thin to support them, the residents of the station are forced to go without fresh fruits and vegetables and other essential supplies.

5. Gibraltar International Airport
This one is totally crazy. We all know that a moving vehicle is not allowed near the airport runaway. But at Gibraltar Airport, vehicles pass over the busy runway on regular basis. Why? Because the main road that connects the peninsula and the mainland passes straight over the airport runway. In order for planes to land safely, the road must be shut down and blocked while the planes land.

6. Don Muang International
Don Muang International Airport in Thailand might seem quite ordinary at first sight, but once you take a closer look, you’ll notice that there is an 18 hole golf course in between the two runways. Crazy, huh?

7. Kansai International Airport
It’s not that easy to find a large open space to land in Japan. This is why the country spent $20 billion constructing the off-coast airport. This man-made island is so huge; it can be seen from space. It is built to withstand the devastating storms and earthquakes that are common in and around Japan.

8. Barra Airport
Location – Scotland (the Hebridean island of Barra, to be more specific). This airport is the wackiest indeed. Why? Because the landings must be made only when the tide is out. Yep, you’ve heard it right. The plane lands straight on the beach.

5 Women Who Dumped Prince Harry Before He Found New Love

The news about Prince Harry’s engagement has gone viral on social media like wildfire. Everyone is talking about his fiancé and trying to figure out whether she is in fact the perfect match for him. And while there are some girls are saddened by the news that he’s taken, and they no longer have a chance to become his princess, most of the public is pretty happy for him. After all, Prince Harry’s romantic life has been all over the place. He definitely dated around, but not all of his romantic conquest were successful, some women actually turned him down, can you imagine? Let’s take a look at 7 women who either turned down his advances or dumped him after a couple of dates.

1. Caroline Flack

Caroline Flack is another TV presenter that Harry used to date. He really does have a taste for women on TV, doesn’t he? Anyway, Caroline and Harry dated after he and Chelsy broke up. Carolie was used to media attention and wasn’t exactly fazed by famous people, after all, she used to date Harry Styles from One Direction. But with time it became apparent that there’s media attention and paparazzi, and then there’s the crazy pressure of dating a Prince, which became unbearable and they broke up.

2. Natalie Pinkham

Natalie Pinkham had her 5 minutes of glory when British tabloid The Sun published a picture of her and Prince Harry on a night out in a club. It wasn’t a very serious relationship, but they used to date for a while. In the end it didn’t really work out, because Natalie was a television presenter and already had her share of media attention, adding a relationship with a royal wasn’t exactly a great idea.

3. Chelsy Davy

Chelsy was Prince Harry’s first and biggest love. They met when they were still kids, he used to call her the love of his life and hoped to marry her. They started dating in 2004 and were on and off until 2011. But while Harry was totally head over heels, Chelsy wasn’t so sure about becoming a part of the royal family. And after she witnessed the scrutiny that Kate Middleton had to go through she decided it’s not for her and dumped the Prince. Plus, Chelsy wasn’t the only one who had doubts about joining the royal family, the Queen wasn’t so sure about her either.

4. Mollie King

Mollie King is an English model and singer. She’s probably best known for being a part of the girl band The Saturdays. She and Prince Harry have been seen hanging out together in 2012, mostly in clubs and at various after parties, but they’ve never really been seen out and about together during the day. She later confessed that while she agreed to go on a couple of dates with Harry, she didn’t let it go to far, because dating a Prince was too much for her.

5. Florence Brudenell-Bruce

Florence became Harry’s first serious girlfriend after his breakup with Chelsy. And while this definitely wasn’t a fling, they only dated for one summer and eventually broke up. She actually married a multi millionaire Henry Edward Hugh St George a couple of years later, so dating Harry was really an image booster for her.
