Advertising just keeps getting better and better. Free running stuntman Damien Walters challenges himself physically every day by back flipping over buildings, jumping over cars and achieving gymnastic triumphs, so this time he thought he’d try running a full loop. But it definitely wasn’t going to be easy.
Nasar the horse was afraid of the storm, so the owner decided to take him in during the bad weather in Holt, northern Germany. But the horse liked staying the house so much that he doesn’t want to leave anymore. He’s also acquired some human tastes, like playing the keyboard, eating sweets and drinking fruit juice.

Hackney Marshes is an area of grassland on the western (Middlesex) bank of the River Lee in the London Borough of Hackney. It was incorporated into the Lee Valley Park in 1967. It was originally a true marsh, but was extensively drained from Medieval times, and rubble was dumped here from buildings damaged by air raids during World War II.
Today the marshes provide many pleasant walks, in reach of the inner city, but the most famous use of Hackney Marshes is for Sunday league football, with 88 full-size football pitches marked out. On a typical Sunday, over 100 matches are played by amateur teams in several local leagues.
