Most Expensive Barbie

A custom-designed Barbie, wearing a necklace featuring a one-carat pink diamond, is to be auctioned off for an estimated 300,000 to 500,000 dollars, making it the world’s most expensive.

The doll will be on offer at Christie's auction house in New York on October 20, and the proceeds from the sale will benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Daily Mail reported.

The necklace was designed by jeweller Stefano Canturi, who arranged the emerald-cut, fancy vivid diamond in a geometric pattern with smaller white diamonds totalling 3 carats.

He also designed the doll's black strapless dress, stilettos, hair and other features.

The world auction record for a Barbie is 17,091 dollars, set in 2006 at Christie's London.

Google or Backrub?

Google was once names "BackRub"

Creators Larry Page and Sergey Brin met while at Stanford University and collaborated on a web search engine called “BackRub.” Over time, the engine became too large for the university’s servers and the pair decided it was time for a name change. They eventually came up with the name “Google,” which was based on the word “googol” - a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros! They believed this word encapsulated their goal of organizing the limitless amounts of information stored across the World Wide Web.

Unique bear shadow in NC

A unique annual phenomenon is about to take place again on a North Carolina mountainside where the autumn light creates a shadow shaped like a bear. 

The shadow of the bear shows up from mid-October through early November as the sun sets behind Whiteside Mountain in southern Jackson County. It's best seen on clear days around 5:30 p.m., with the show lasting for about a half-hour. Tourists and photographers hoping to see it often gather at the Rhodes Big View overlook along Highway 64, a little more than 4 miles from the town of Cashiers.
The Jackson County Visitors Center describes the phenomenon as a bear-like shadow coming "out of hibernation" at a time of year when the mountain is covered with colourful fall foliage. The image is created by a series of small, bumpy peaks on the mountain that block the sun's rays and cast shadows on the slopes and valley below as the sun sinks lower in the sky. The same phenomenon happens again in late winter for a few weeks beginning mid-February.
The area is about 75 miles southwest of Asheville, N.C., near the borders of South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia.
