He’s a funny dog that smiles on command (and when he’s happy), enjoys having spaz outs and as you can see here, sleeping! Enjoy!

Someone should let Kermit know he has a new relative.
A new species of frog called the Hyalinobatrachium dianae
has been found in Costa Rica. Similar to the glass frog, the
lime-colored amphibian has translucent skin on its underside and has
eyes that make it look like the famous Muppet, Kermit.

The frog's translucent belly makes its internal organs easy to see,
but its those big, white eyes with perfect black centers that give a
distinctive, Muppet-like look.
The frog was photographed by Dr. Brian Kubicki, who detailed the new species in a study
with zoologist Stanley Salazar and Robert Puschendorf. Dr. Kubicki
named the creature after his mother, Janet Diana Kubicki, according to
the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center.

frog was previously missed by scientists who were studying the area,
but the authors attribute this to the frog's particular call. Dr.Kubicki
says it sounds more like an insect than a frog, according to The Tico Times, a Costa Rican news site.
The study describes the frog’s "advertisement call" as "a single
tonal long metallic whistle-like note." No word yet on whether the new
species enjoys playing the ukulele or has an affinity for fashionable
pigs. Further study will be needed.
Next, scientists will look for bears who tell knock-knock jokes.

In what sounds like a scene from one of his legendary horror films, the head of Nosferatu director FW Murnau, who died in 1931, has been stolen from his family plot in a cemetery in Germany.
The grave-robbing occurred in Stahnsdorf, about 12 miles south-west of central Berlin, according to Variety. The graves of Murnau’s brothers were reportedly not disturbed.
residue is said to have been found near the grave, suggesting that
candles had been lit, and a possible occult motive for the theft.
Murnau was best known for the expressionist classic 1922 black-and-white vampire horror, later remade by Werner Herzog. He also directed Sunrise, which won several Oscars at the first-ever Academy awards.
Murnau died in a car crash aged 42 in California and was buried in his native Germany.

JK Rowling’s Cursed Child may not be a Harry Potter prequel but Severus Snape and The Marauders most certainly is.
Fans of the franchise have long yearned for a novel or film following
the adventures of Harry’s parents before he was born and now a group of
them have come together to make one themselves.
The Broad Strokes collective – who are behind Facebook page Harry Potter Untold Tales
– launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film and achieved their
goal, meaning they could produce a pretty snazzy-looking short by the
looks of the trailer:<P><BR>
"Set in 1978, just after Harry Potter’s father James graduates from
Hogwarts, he and his friends Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter
Pettigrew celebrate at a bar, contemplating their place in a war they
are to soon become a part of,” the film’s synopsis reads. “When Severus
Snape enters the same bar, James Potter decides to do something about
Snape once and for all.”
It’s full of teenage wizarding angst, with that all-important love
triangle – involving Snape, Lily and James – at the heart of the tale,
The team previously produced The Greater Good, a 17-minute short film
about the duel between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindewald, which
Rowling wrote about in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. It was
quite the hit on YouTube, with more than 2.9 million views to date.
And if Broad Strokes have their way the Snape-centred short will be
ready for release in December so Potter fans would do well to watch this

Does quantum mechanics predict the existence of a
spiritual "soul"? Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from
institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the
Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics
predicts some version of "life after death."
They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an
extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.
Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantum mechanics,
proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons,
possess the properties of both particles and waves. These physicists
claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body
dichotomy. If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead,
then there is an existence after death (speaking in purely physical
terms). Dr. Hans-Peter Dürr, former head of the Max Planck Institute for
Physics in Munich, posits that, just as a particle "writes" all of its
information on its wave function, the brain is the tangible "floppy
disk" on which we save our data, and this data is then "uploaded" into
the spiritual quantum field. Continuing with this analogy, when we die
the body, or the physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the
data on the computer, lives on.
"What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just
the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite
reality that is much bigger. Which this world is rooted in. In this way,
our lives in this plane of existence are encompassed, surrounded, by
the afterworld already... The body dies but the spiritual quantum field
continues. In this way, I am immortal," says Dürr.
Dr. Christian Hellwig of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical
Chemistry in Göttingen, found evidence that information in our central
nervous system is phase encoded, a type of coding that allows multiple
pieces of data to occupy the same time. He said, "Our thoughts, our
will, our consciousness and our feelings show properties that could be
referred to as spiritual properties...No direct interaction with the
known fundamental forces of natural science, such as gravitation,
electromagnetic forces, etc. can be detected in the spiritual. On the
other hand, however, these spiritual properties correspond exactly to
the characteristics that distinguish the extremely puzzling and wondrous
phenomena in the quantum world."
Physicist Professor Robert Jahn of Princeton University concluded
that if consciousness can exchange information in both directions with
the physical environment, then it can be attributed with the same
"molecular binding potential" as physical objects, meaning that it must
also follow the tenets of quantum mechanics. Quantum physicist David
Bohm, a student and friend of Albert Einstein, was of a similar opinion.
He stated, "The results of modern natural sciences only make
sense if we assume an inner, uniform, transcendent reality that is based
on all external data and facts. The very depth of human consciousness
is one of them."
Although there is no definitive concrete evidence for this
theory, one could arguably afford some weight to these claims if some of
the most brilliant minds in quantum mechanics believe that it is
consistent with the general patterns and trends of modern science. If
proven, this theory could have monumental implications; if humans do
"download" their consciousness into a thus far unobservable field, then a
person's consciousness could, in Dürr's words, truly be immortal.
