Unique cream made from snow and tallow that only Eskimos have

While it may sound weird, most people who try Eskimo ice cream say that it is delicious! Indigenous people in Alaska have a special cream called Akutaq, also known as Eskimo cream, but it is not a sweet, smooth cream as we know it. The composition of this special cream is usually reindeer grease, seal grease, new snow, berries and fish on the ice.

This is a dish that Alaskan native has kept for thousands of years. Akutaq has become a traditional Eskimo food for a long time and is used as a special street food. When hunters go out for hunting, they always carry Akutaq. Akutaq can also be made with meat and grease, reindeer grease, fish, seal grease, berries and other Alaska ingredients. The women usually make Eskimo ice cream after catching a polar bear or seal. The woman (grandmother or mother of the hunter) will prepare Akutaq and share it with the community members at special ceremonies. See more:

Traditionally, this dish has always been featured in funerals, celebrations of the first hunt from a boy or almost any other special occasion. It is eaten as a dessert in the main meal or snack, or in bread. Today, Eskimo ice cream is usually made with shortening, adding sugar and raisins instead of using tallow as before. The Alaska area often decides what berries to use and each family often has their favorite Akutaq recipe. One interesting thing in Eskimo society is that the choice of berries used in making Akutaq will be a lifelong decision. You can still eat Eskimo ice cream made with other fruits but if you get caught you will lose your social status.

Indigenous people are very fond of newcomers in Alaska. When guests are ready to try Akutaq, the Eskimos feel proud to share their culture. Initially, the host may be slightly hesitant to invite their guests for fear of rejection. If you are a guest and invited to eat a glass of Akutaq, start by eating one by one. If you really can not eat this unique dish, look for the oldest person in the room and give your share to them. This will show you have good manners if you do not fit your taste and you respect the elders. Then quickly grab a plate and eat something you can eat. While it may sound ridiculous, most people who try Eskimo ice cream say that it is delicious!

These Luxury Wellness Vacations Will Jumpstart Your 2018 New Year’s Resolutions. If the new year has you ready for a health reboot, there are other options than the usual crowded gym and diet plans.

Lots of resorts, hotels, and just destinations offer fitness and wellness packages to allow travelers to try new forms of exercise, do a diet cleanse, or practice meditation and yoga.

There are three basic answers that human would give if they are asked the interesting animal facts question: The reason why can’t animal talk as human? So what are 3 basic ones and what is the correct answer? Keep reading to know:

1. Don’t animals have a tongue? 2. Don’t animals have a voice box? 3. Animals want to speak, but they can’t?

3

The first and the second one are not true. Most animals do have a tongue. Most of them also have a voice box that helps to make the sounds we make like – talk, sing, cough, grunt or hum.

The correct answer is the third one. Maybe animals want to talk in a language of words like us but they are not capable of doing it. The brain of animals is less developed as compared to humans. Probably that is the reason why animals can’t develop words and a language to express their feelings.

However, animals have the same feelings as we do – love, affection, anger, fear and many more. They express their feelings by making gestures and sounds. Have you noticed how a dog barks when angry and wags its tail when excited or happy or how a happy peacock dances when it rains!!

Edgar Allan Poe was once an army cadet at West Point. *The first American poet to achieve any notoriety was an African female slave named Phillus Wheatly. One of her poems was first published when she was 13. She wrote a poem about George Washington and later met him. She died tragically at the age of 30 in 1784. * Ben Franklin composed his own epitaph when he was 22 years old. * Charles Lindbergh was not the first person to fly across the Atlantic. He was the first to make it alone. 2 Brits did it in 1919, and 2 weeks later U.S. Navy pilots did the same thing! What is amazing is that nobody remembers them!

  • Do you know that the most interesting facts of life are most weird, funny and stupid yet bluntly very true facts.

Amelia Earhart was the first female to fly across the Atlantic, once as a passenger, and once as a solo pilot. She was the first to fly solo from California to Hawaii, and the first to fly solo from Mexico City to New Jersey. * Harry S. Truman was the only president in this century who didn’t have a college education. * During the Civil War, more soldiers died of disease than they did from gunshots and fighting. * Maine is the only state in the lower 48 that touches only one other state. * Long before the island of Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay became a prison, it was used as a military fort. Shortly prior to this, the first light house located on the West Coast was built here in 1854. * In 1924, 14 buffalo were taken to Catalina Island off the coast of California.

They were used in a movie, “The Vanishing American.” The buffalo were left behind, the herd grew larger, and today about 250 still roam free on the island. During later years, the population has been “controlled”. * In 1940, Maurice and Richard McDonald opened a barbecue car-hop type restaurant located in San Bernardino, Ca. Shortly after W.W.II, they paired the menu down to offer burgers, fries, and shakes.  Ray Croc, a restaurant appliance salesman, was baffled as to why they needed so many milk shake makers.  He found out soon enough. Franchise rights were sold in 1955, and Ray Croc opened one up in Des Plaines, Ill. This was his first, but actually the 9th McDonalds. And the rest, as they say, is history. A museum has recently opened up at the original location-14th and E streets in San Bernardino. * Charles Lindbergh, the famous aviator, had visited Hawaii and became aware of its beauty. He lived most of his life on the East Coast, however. When he was ill and weeks away from dying, he checked himself out of a New York hospital and  traveled to Hawaii. He made plans for his burial, and when he died he was buried at a site on Maui. (Yes he is still there today.) * Los Angeles was not as “tall” as other large cites, and sprawls for miles. One reason is that before 1957, there was a law against any building having more than 13 stories. They were afraid of earthquakes.  City Hall, built in 1927, was the lone exception.  This is the building that dominates the skyline in the old Dragnet andSuperman TV series. Today, it seems quite hidden. * According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there are 140 towns and cities in the U.S.that have the word “Christmas” in their names. * General Motors, in 1954, became the first corporation in the U.S. to have $1 billion in net income. * The Poinsettia  plant was named after Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico in the early 1800’s. He “discovered” them in Mexico in 1825. * In 1971, cigarette ads were banned from television in the U.S. * The largest free-swinging bell will be located in Kentucky. It is being cast in France and will weigh 33 tons. It is for a monument to the new millennium. * The first two navel orange trees in the U.S. were from Brazil and planted inRiverside, California, about 1875. Virtually all navel oranges grown in the U.S. are offspring from these trees. One of the original trees was replanted by Teddy Roosevelt in in 1903 but died. The other is still alive today in a park in Riverside! * The first holiday celebrated nation wide in the U.S. was the 100th anniversary of George Washington’s inauguration, April 30,1889. * You don’t need to travel out of the country to see one of  Egypt’s ancient ruins. A 3,000 year old obelisk, named Cleopatra’s Needle is located in New York‘s Central Park. Stands about 66 feet tall, weighs somewhere near 220 tons. It was given as a gift of friendship in 1879. Its “sister” is in London. It was a “monumental” task to bring it here! * John F. Kennedy is the only president to have died before his parents. * The largest oil-producing field in the lower 48 states is in Taft, California. * The spillway over Shasta Dam in Redding, California creates the world’s largest man-made waterfall at 438 feet. * The crookedest street in the world is Snake Alley, located in Burlington, Iowa. * The first motel was built in San Luis Obispo, California during the 1920’s when the Motor Inn merged the two words, motor and hotel. It is still there today!

Interesting facts about United States could you have known or unknown. Let’s learn about it offline.

  • Do you know that the most interesting facts of life are most weird, funny and stupid yet bluntly very true facts.

Some of Ghandi’s ashes are at the Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades near Los Angeles. These were the only ashes allowed outside of India when he died. * In 1919, Boston had a molasses disaster. 2 million gallons of crude molasses burst from a tank and pushed its way through the neighborhood and city. It killed at least 21 people and took weeks to clean up. * The “largest” city in the United States is Juneau, Alaska. It covers about 3,000 square miles. That’s larger than the state of Delaware. In case you are wondering, Jacksonville, Florida is the largest in the lower 48 at just over 800 square miles.

  • The California grizzly bear is the state’s official animal. However, in 1953 when it was named, it had already become extinct. The last known California grizzly to have been seen was killed in 1922. * Venus Fly Traps only live in the wild in the Carolinas and nowhere else in the world. * Not only was Ronald Reagan the oldest person ever elected president at age of 69, he has lived longer than any former president ever has, and has died at the age of 93. We will love you dearly, Mr. President! * Francis Scott Key, who penned the Star Spangled Banner, was a practicing lawyer. His sister, Anne Key, married Roger Brooke Taney, who later would be the Chief Justice that gave the decision in the Dred Scott case.
  • Learn all you wanted to know about emperor penguin facts for kids with pictures, videos, photos,facts, and news * Martin Luther King, Jr., was originally named Michael, like his father. When Jr. was 5, dad changed both their names to Martin. * Amelia Earhart designed her own line of clothes that were sold all over the United States. * Degas, the great French painter, lived in New Orleans for one year, 1872-1873. * Calvin Coolidge had 2 pet racoons. * There are no poisonous snakes in Maine. * President James Garfield devised an original proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and piblished it in 1876. He once taught math at Hiram College. *  Jimmy Carter was the first president born in a hospital. * President William H. Taft had quite a second career. 9 years after his presidency, he was appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court by President Harding. Taft was also the first president to submit a national budget and set a precedent by doing so. * Gen. Robert E. Lee married a relative of George Washington, Mary Ann Randolph Custis. She owned a plantation called “Arlington.” They lived there 30 years until Gen. Lee resigned his commission to avoid fighting against his home state. The Lees vacated the property in 1861. Union troops occupied it and 200 acres were set aside to bury fallen Union soldiers. Today over 250,000 war dead are buried there. Now of course, it is known as Arlington National Cemetery. * In the middle of the Mojave Desert in California, sits a lone telephone booth, 50 miles from Interstate 15, and basically in the middle of nowhere. Nobody seems to remember when and why it was built. Years ago miners who worked nearby used it. Today you can get to it on dirt roads. It has a world-wide cult following now, with people from all over the world calling and visiting it. Nicknamed the Mojave Desert Phone Booth, it’s number is: (760)733-9969. Kiddies, get your parent’s permission! (*Note: This telephone apparently has been torn down.) * A mechanical engineer invented a device in the 1870’s to oil train wheels while the train kept running. It was called a lubricator. He made several others for various machines. His name was Elijah McCoy, and imitators followed. These imitations did not work as well, and people coined the phrase, “The Real McCoy” to denote the originals. What is so amazing about this fact? He was born to a runaway slave family. That’s right, The Real McCoy was anAfrican-American! * Immigrants being awed by the Statute of Liberty is a tale that has been romanticized over the years.  This was a view of richer passengers. The truth is, most immigrants who came here by ship near the turn of the century were very poor. As a result, they traveled below deck with hardly any view at all. The first thing most of them remember is being herded like cattle onto Ellis Island. * A town called Terminus was founded in Georgia in 1837 because it was the end of a railroad line. This town was made into Marthasville in 1843. What is this “town” called today? Since 1845 it has been called Atlanta, of course. * The original bell, now referred to as the Liberty bell, was cast in London and came to this shore in 1752.  It cracked a month later and was recast twice.  The time and place of the current crack is actually unknown. * Contrary to many people, no star on the flag is specifically representing any one state. In fact, no law exists as to how they are even to be arranged. * A redwood tree in California has been dubbed the Tallest Living Thing. It is about 367 feet high and resides in Montgomery Woods State Reserve. It is now taller than the previous “Tallest” tree because it was damaged in a storm and is now about 10 feet shorter. * July 4, 1776, is the “official” date when our country was born, but actually was not one country until 1788. (I’ll let you find out why!) * Martin Van Buren was the first president born in America after it declared its independence from England. So, he was actually the first president born in the United States, the country.

Have you ever wondered an interesting question about tiger facts: What are threat to tigers? We can help you answer the question. Let’s see how

Tigers are native to much of Asia, from some of the coldest regions to the steamy rainforests of the Indonesian Islands. They are the top predator in every ecosystem they inhabit.

Until the 20th Century there were nine tiger subspecies that probably numbered over 100,000 animals. They included the giant 660-pound, or 300 kilo, Siberian (Pantera tigris altaica) and Caspian (Pantera tigris virgata; now extinct) tigers as well as the relatively small—and now also extinct—200-pound (90 kilo) Balinese tiger. Depending on whether there are any remaining South China tigers—nobody has seen one in years—there are either 5 or 6 tiger subspecies remaining in existence; all are endangered. All tiger subspecies put together currently amount to fewer than 3,000 endangered tigers remaining in the wild.

The main reasons tigers are endangered—in most cases cases, critically endangered—are illegal hunting for their pelts, meat and body parts (used in folk medicines) as well as habitat loss that results from logging and other forms of forest destruction.

Fewer than 500 endangered Siberian, or Amur, tigers remain in the wild, all of of them in a small area of coastal Far-Eastern Russia. Although the population has appeared stable until recently, these tigers are threatened by poaching, habitat loss due to logging, road-building and development, as well as by the problem of inbreeding that has resulted from the fact that, before conservation measures were implemented in the 1930’s, the entire population had collapsed to around 40 individuals. Read more about endangered Siberian tigers.

Get tigers for kids. This list has tiger information from beautiful tiger pictures to amazing tiger facts.

  • Tigers are the largest wild cats in the world. Adults can weigh up to 363kg – that’s about the same as ten ten year olds! – and measure up to 3.3m!
  • Tigers are carnivores, eating only meat. They mainly feed on large mammals such as deer, wild pigs, antelope and buffalo.
  • Tigers are solitary hunters, and generally search for food alone at night. They quietly stalk their prey until they are close enough to pounce – then they kill their victim with a bite to the neck or back of the head. Ouch!
  • Unlike most members of the cat family, tigers like water. They are good swimmers and often cool off in pools or streams.
  • When a tiger wants to be heard, you’ll know about it, gang – because their roar can be heard as far as three kilometres away.
  • They may be big and heavy, but tigers are by no means slow movers. In fact, at full speed they can reach up to 65km/h!

  • These fierce felines have walked the earth for a long time. Fossil remains of tigers found in parts of China are believed to be 2 million years old. Yikes!
  • Tigers are carnivores. They are quiet, patient hunters with large powerful paws and teeth to help them catch and eat their prey. Some of their favorite meals include pigs, deer, rhinoceroses, and even small elephants.
  • Tigers hunt for their food, but they are also hunted by humans for their valuable fur and body parts. Because of this, tiger researches think there may only be 3,500 tigers left in the world. This makes them an endangered species.

If you’re looking for the most interesting animal facts, you’re at the right place. Here are list of amazing facts about penguin facts: Penguins are birds designed by evolution for swimming rather than flying. Their wings have turned into flippers and though they usually walk upright on land, some drop on to their bellies to scoot over ice. Most species cruise underwater at an average speed of 4-7 miles per hour, but the Gentoo can speed up to 22 miles per hour. All penguins live south of the equator. Although we often associate them with Antarctic, they also occur farther north on beaches and rocky shores in coastal South America, the Galapagos Islands, Australia and South Africa. The largest penguin you will ever see trundling around the Antarctic is the emperor, which can stand in excess of 3.5 feet tall and weigh nearly 80 pounds, roughly the weight of two or three Thanksgiving turkeys. The emperor is also the only bird species that nests in the Antarctic during the winter, when temperatures can drop below minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit. A baby penguin is called a chick. The chick will eat regurgitated food from their mother. Regurgitated food is food that comes out of the mother’s stomach. A chick will leave the nest when they are around one month old. Penguins are social animals. Penguins often nest with other penguins. Penguins can be playful. They like to go tobogganing. They will lay on their tummy and slide through the ice and snow. Penguins will also dive off cliffs into the water, get out and dive again for fun. No penguins live in the North Pole! With the exception of yellow-eyed and Fiordland penguins, these birds are colonial nesters, gathering in breeding groups that range in number from 100 pairs among gentoo penguins to several hundred thousand in the king, macaroni and chinstrap species. In most species, each pair produces two eggs, though emperor and king penguins—the two largest living species—usually lay only one egg. Among emperors, males incubate the eggs, but in all other species mom and dad take turns. The little blue penguin lays the smallest eggs, about 2 ounces and the emperor pops out the largest, which can weigh a full pound. In the Antarctic, penguins have no land predators, though skuas—gull-like, predatory birds—may feed on eggs and hatchlings. Consequently, penguins have no fear of people and may approach to with a few feet of Antarctic visitors. This defenseless behavior might have proved fatal for penguin species, as it did for other flightless birds such as the dodo and the great auk, wiped out centuries ago by ship crews who took them for food. But Antarctic penguins got lucky. Surrounded by dangerously rough seas and harsh climate, the Antarctic proved a penguin haven. No human set foot there until the 1800s.
