#F1 Sebastian Vettel admits he had to calm himself down in the final few laps of the Malaysian Grand Prix as he closed in on his first victory at Ferrari.

Sebastian Vettel : "I shouldn't say it, but I don't know, I was s***ting myself in the last few laps because here and there the thought was coming into my head, I was looking at the top of the chassis, and thinking 'this is a red car, you're about to win!'. And then I thought 'stop thinking about it otherwise you'll miss the next apex or something'. Real relief to cross the line in the end! A phenomenal day. How does it feel? It feels incredible, to see the guys when I looked down from the podium. I can only recall the victories Fernando [Alonso] had at Ferrari and especially Michael [Schumacher]. It's incredible to become part of this team, it's something special. It makes me very happy obviously. It's the first win in more than a year now. I missed not only the champagne but the top step in particular. It's great to come back after a tough season last year where I just didn't get on top of the car. This year the balance seems to suit me and has come my way and Kimi's way more than last year. I'm very pleased, the strategy today was obviously ace. A big thanks to the guys, they pulled in obviously. We were a bit surprised but we saw on Friday they weren't happy on the medium compound and Lewis was struggling in the first stint so I was able to keep up with him, which I enjoyed a lot. After that I knew I had to deliver, trying to make those tyres last and try and trying to push as hard as I can. Second stint he was chasing me down, which was tough, as he has a stronger second stint but I was able to rebalance the car and have a pretty solid gap the last couple of gaps. It's a dream. When I grew up Michael was my hero. For all of us, and I talk for all the kids at the go-kart track in Germany, we were looking up to him. When he turned up every year to shake hands and to look after us a little bit it made our lives. That's why I think today I probably don't understand how special it is yet - very emotional."

Periods are normal for women, whether Instagram wants to see it or not.
Instagram banned a picture of a fully clothed woman, poet Rupi Kaur, twice because it showed her period stain.

A team of ecologists tracked rare and endangered Ruppell's vultures in Kenya—and discovered that their "movements would make even the most extreme fitness fanatics look like couch potatoes."
Traveling 125 miles by your own power might take a human a week a more to complete. For Ruppell’s vultures, with an 8-ft wingspan, it's a mere day trip.

Great airport. Spacious with lots of natural light. Wonderful for dining, shopping and relaxing. Now there are "napcabs" too. But just find a nice quiet corner and there are plenty. Terminal 2 is my favorite place to hang out and I always transit through Munich. A big duty free shop with a wide range of chocolates, perfumes, gifts. Lots of wonderful places to eat. Check out "seafoodsylt". Free WiFi for 30 min and then you have to pay. Around 4 EUR for an hour or if you're transiting through Munich more than once within a month, go for the 10 hr internet pass for 20 EUR. Absolutely worth it. There are 4 free internet terminals on the way to gates 1-6, but obviously it's always occupied. There are quiet a few free power charging spots too. One that's easy to access is downstairs, near the gates for flights to Italy, right in front of the escalators. Lufthansa service center staff are very friendly and helpful. The airport isn't as spectacular as Changi (Singapore), but is among my most preferred airports.

A copy of my review from Yelp for J Wok. This place definitely gets a 5* from me on any day, any time. Absolutely delicious food and really wonderful, awesome waiters and waitresses out here. James (and the others) ware a pleasure to talk to and treated us like royalty. I tried at least 6-7 main dishes along with some starters and every one of them was incredibly delicious - so good that I remember the taste and experience even after a week now. If I ever go to SD again, this place will be my top spot for lunch or dinner on any day. Location is great and the ambience is perfect for a nice, enjoyable dinner. Price is great considering the quality of food, service and the overall experience. Be nice and one of the guys might even give you a discount card (just like they did for me). Be super nice and honest, they might even cook up a secret surprise desert on the house for you (just like James did on our last night/last dinner in SD)... :-) The Kung Pao Chicken was one of the best I've ever had. The Fresh Spring Rolls with peanut butter sauce was one of the freshest spring rolls I've had. The Yellow Chicken Curry Crispy Roll was fantastic (it was a top choice among me and my friends). The Pad Thai and Pad See Ew are.... just awesome. My suggestion: If you're hungry, if you want a good, luxurious, delicious meal for a great price, go here. You won't regret it. We were in SD for the Annual Neuroscience meeting at the convention centre and we were staying in Gaslamp Quarter - among all the very best memories we carried from SD, J Wok stands right up there..
