Phone fiend: People collect lots of different things, like dolls, hats, and porcelain figurines. Not very many collectors choose old cell phones as their object of interest, but that's what Sahabettin Ozcelik of Van province in eastern Turkey collects. Ozcelik is a cell phone repairman, and during his 20-odd years in business, he has seen a lot of different makes and models come and go. He has about 1,000 phones in his collection, and he used to have more before thieves broke in and stole some of them. He keeps them all in working order.
River zipper: Imagine a zipper being pulled by its tab while the fabric, with zipper teeth on both sides, opens up. Now imagine that the fabric is a sheet of still water and the pull tab is a boat. As the boat moves forward, its wake looks like a zipper opening up. Basically, that was the vision of Japanese designer Yasuhiro Suzuki when he designed a boat to look like a zipper's pull-tab. He got the idea while watching a boat from an airplane window. He named his creation Zip-Fastener Ship and presented it at the 2020 Designart Tokyo, calling his installation Opening the River.
Uninvited visitor: Perhaps the deer was only looking for a quiet place to retire when it jumped through the glass in the door of an assisted living facility in the town of Selkirk, Manitoba (Canada). Once inside, though, the wild animal didn't seem to want to lie down for a rest. Police were called to handle the situation, which occurred in the middle of the night. They were able to steer the skittish buck into a large, empty room, away from the area where residents live. Eventually, the animal found the open door and bounded through it to freedom.
Delicious stew: Those who have visited Brazil may be well aware that this South American country's national dish is a stew called feijoada (feijoada completa). This hearty meal consists of smoked pork and flavorful black beans. Finding exact replicas of the dish throughout the country is difficult because families and dining establishments boast their own homemade recipes for the popular mealtime favourite. Flavorings for the dish may include onion, tomatoes, garlic, and coriander. Accompaniments might be green vegetables, rice, and oranges. It is often served for lunch on Saturdays.
