Always Appreciate the Stranger Who is There for You

Last year while I was traveling through Europe blindly, not knowing a single person or where I would stay, amazing strangers opened up their homes and lives to me in beautiful acts of kindness. The most memorable of strangers was French activist and We Are Change Paris member Joel Boujassy.

Joel taught me an important message about life in the 2 weeks I spent with him. It does not matter how small your apartment is or how little money you have. What matters most is the company you keep and the attitude you have.

Joel may have not been a well known figure throughout the movement, but the person he was deserves as much respect and tribute as anyone else.

Woolly Mammoth: Secrets From The Ice

Broadcast (2012) Professor Alice Roberts reveals the natural history of the most famous of Ice Age animals - the woolly mammoth. Mammoths have transfixed humans since the depths of the last Ice Age, when their herds roamed across what is now Europe and Asia. Although these curious members of the elephant family have now been extinct for thousands of years, scientists can now paint an incredibly detailed picture of their lives thanks to whole carcasses that have been beautifully preserved in the Siberian permafrost. Alice meets the scientists who are using the latest genetic, chemical and molecular tests to reveal the adaptations that allowed mammoths to evolve from their origins in the tropics, to surviving the extremes of Siberia. And in a dramatic end to the film, she helps unveil a brand new woolly mammoth carcass that may shed new light on our own ancestors' role in their extinction.
