A French artist has hatched 10 eggs, spending three weeks sitting in a 98F glass case.
"Abraham Poincheval has been on public display inside a glass case in the Palais de Tokyo modern art museum since March 29, and can be seen checking on the eggs every few minutes via the museum's live YouTube feed," The Telegraph reported.
Poincheval, who is the father of two, was successful to hatch the first egg earlier this week.
"It's been really tough for him. He has slept sitting on the eggs. It's been a lot harder than being shut inside the rock," dailmail.co.uk said quoting a spokeswoman for the museum.
Poincheval had stayed inside the glass that has temperature of 37 degree Celsius that is must for the eggs to hatch.
He had also spent a fortnight inside a bear carcass eating worms and insects, and navigated the Rhone river inside a giant corked bottle.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.

I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice.
