A what? What is a listicle? I read this word yesterday in an article on brainpickings.org. According to Google, a listicle is an article on the Internet presented in the form of a numbered or bullet-pointed list. After looking at a few definitions, I found this visual and went “Ohh! Those.” And promptly after that, realized why the Brain Pickings article mentioned Buzz Feed:
I came back from Vancouver fascinated with bears, wanting to learn more about them. Consequently I ran into a series called Wild Canada, that captures the great landscapes and wildlife of Canada.
Interestingly the first bear introduced was the Spirit, or Kermode Bear. These bears are known to exist only in forests of British Columbia. Spirit Bears are neither albino nor related to Polar Bears, but actually a form of the North American Black Bear. A recessive gene, when occurring in both parents, results in this white colored fur.
They feed mostly on berries and salmon and are endangered. Today only an estimated 100-200 exist.
The secret to relations sometimes—I mean the really tough times—is not that you have to give in or give up, but that you have to care enough to try and heal some parts on your own.
