13-year-old Mongolian girl hunts with a golden eagle

Ashol-Pan lives in the Altai mountains of western Mongolia. Photographer and travel writer Asher Svidensky recently took stunning pictures of her hunting with a golden eagle - perhaps the only girl in the world learning to do so. They photos are posted on BBC's website.

Svidensky shot five boys learning the skill, in addition to the 13-year-old girl.

"To see her with the eagle was amazing," he said. "She was a lot more comfortable with it, a lot more powerful with it and a lot more at ease with it."

According to BBC, the Kazakhs of the Altai mountain range are the only people that hunt with golden eagles. Ashol-Pan is the daughter of a particularly celebrated hunter and may well be the country's only huntress.

The BBC writes details of the actual hunting:

"They hunt in winter, when the temperatures can drop to -40C (-40F). A hunt begins with days of trekking on horseback through snow to a mountain or ridge giving an excellent view of prey for miles around. Hunters generally work in teams. After a fox is spotted, riders charge towards it to flush it into the open, and an eagle is released. If the eagle fails to make a kill, another is released."

A 13-year-old eagle huntress. Amazing.

No salary, no vacation, no sleep: The world's toughest job

A greeting card company posted a fake job offer online and in newspapers looking to fill a Director of Operations position.

The job had a mandatory 135 to unlimited hours of work per week with no pay. Some prerequisites included knowledge of psychology, medicine, finance, culinary arts and technology skills. It also had physical requirements, including the ability to stand for hours, be constantly moving and operate on little to no sleep.

Surprisingly, 24 people responded to the job posting at Rehtom, Inc., even though the position offered no benefits, no pension and no paid holidays. The applicants were interviewed via webcam.

That's when they got a big surprise.
