Another firm, Zoolingua , was founded in 2018. It's been working for some time on a mobile app that can translate dog body language and sounds to English using machine learning.

1 day old baby hiccups
The changes you’ll go through as a new parent can not be underestimated. Post-partum recovery, new ways of sleeping (or not so much of it) and breastfeeding difficulties are just some of the challenges new mums can face. But along with the new adjustment come many joys and it’s important to remember all newborns are different and will adjust at their own pace. One common issue that parents face is trouble feeding and while this may be due to breastfeeding and not latching properly, it can also be because of tongue-tie . So what exactly is tongue-tie? Well, in short, it is where the strip of skin connecting the baby’s tongue to the bottom of the mouth is shorter than usual. This means that babies with tongue-tie generally can not open their mouths wide enough to latch and feed correctly. It’s not hard to imagine the consequences of this. A very hungry and restless little one that will have difficulty settling and sleeping is frequently reported by concerned … [Read more...] about What is a tongue tie in babies and can it be fixed?

It’s the stuff of every fisherman’s dreams. A British angler caught a whopping seven foot and 28-and-a-half stone halibut, earning him a place in the record books in the process. Paul Stevens, 45, caught the monster fish while exploring the northern shores of Norway. A halibut which grows to this size is expected to be between the age of 70 and 90. The fish was too big to bring onboard, so Paul took a chilly dip into the water to take a selfie with it. Paul then unhooked the massive haul, which weight around the same as an American black bear, and put him back into the freezing waters. It took the fisherman a total three days to recover after battling the beast. The halibut is believed to be the biggest ever caught by a British angler, although it was still more than 100lbs shy of the world record catch which stands at an astonishing 513lbs. The biggest halibut ever caught was reeled in by German angler Marco Liebenow in 2013, weighing a staggering 513lbs or 37 … [Read more...] about Angler hauls in massive 7 foot halibut thought to be 90 years old
