It's Fat Bear Week, a pure and wonderful treat for people who need a break from the harsh realities of life. The competition champions the brown bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve as they complete their transformations from scrawny to elephantine for hibernation. With the internet watching via live Bear Cams, the contestants go beast mode on the millions of sockeye salmon that run from Bristol Bay down the Brooks River. Then it's up to voters to interpret the "fattest." "There's no real set criteria that you're supposed to vote on," said Mike Fitz, a resident naturalist with Explore.org who started the competition in 2014.

How much does Lewis Hamilton have left in the tank? He has told Toto Wolff he has “another five years” of Formula 1 in him. Hamilton has muscled his way to the very summit of Formula 1, holding the records for most race wins, pole positions and podium finishes among others. He is also a seven-time World Champion, which means an eighth would see him surpass Michael Schumacher for the record of most titles won.
