A 61-year-old man survived a near-fatal mauling while conducting a land survey in Alaska. A bear bit the man’s head multiple times, but he was able to stop the bleeding and call for help, officials say. 

According to state troopers, Allen Minish had been walking alone, not far from the road, when “he unknowingly walked up on an adult brown bear.”

“All of the sudden, I looked up, and about 30 feet away, there was this nice-sized brown bear,” Minish said. “And it looked at me, and it came at me. And I thought, ‘Great.’”

When the man’s attempt at seeking shelter didn’t work, he protected himself by grabbing the bear’s lower jaw. 

“Because if you grab a dog’s lower jaw, it can’t bite you,” Minish said. “So I got a hole punched in my hand with its molar, but he couldn’t close his mouth. And all he did was scratch my hand with his upper one.”

However, the bear was able to break free, and that’s when it went for the man’s head.

How did Minish survive the multiple bites to his head?

The largest iceberg ever recorded has officially broken free from Antarctica.  

At 1,667 square miles, the massive iceberg is more than three times the size of the entire city of Los Angeles. Images that were captured recently as the iceberg separated from the Ronne Ice Shelf in the Weddell Sea confirm the full separation of the iceberg from Antarctica. 

Experts contend that an iceberg this size should not have been able to break free so suddenly. Global warming is one of the things being blamed for the rare phenomenon. 

What else do scientists believe could have contributed to the premature separation of the iceberg?

Seven secrets to raising successful children

All parents want their kids to be successful. Often, success stems from lessons learned. Experience taught Steve Jobs the power of asking for help.

Making thousands of decisions helped Jeff Bezos realize he should stop wasting time deliberating over easily reversible decisions. Billions of dollars later, Warren Buffett decided ultimate success is when the people you hope will love you do, in fact, love you.
