    A deaf man unwittingly becomes part of Samsung’s latest campaign – a video call centre for the hearing impaired. Muharren, in Istanbul, is greeted by people in the sign language, but passes it off as coincidence until he goes to the city centre and people are still talking in signs. When it is revealed it was a stunt, he gets emotional. More so when he learns that all the people in the campaign volunteered. Promoting ‘A world without barriers is our dream’, it has already garnered five million hits.

    If you think you are quick and claim to have a photographic memory, Marcin Maskow Kowalczyk will change that. The 36-year-old Polish mnemonist, a member of the World Cube Association, can not only solve Rubic’s cube, but can solve 41 in an hour. 3x3x3 Blindfold shows him set a World Record after solving the puzzle in 21.17 seconds. What is fantastic is he does it blindfolded and the time includes him initially looking at the unsolved puzzle, storing it in his photographic memory then tackling it.
