  • FILE - In this July 4, 2015 file photo, Joey Chestnut, left, and Matt Stonie compete in Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest men’s competition Saturday in the Coney Island section in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Stonie came in first eating 62 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. Chestnut came in second eating 60 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.For decades, the showmen behind the annual contest have been teling reporters the tradition began in 1916 with a showdown between patriotic immigrants on the Coney Island boardwalk. That would make this year’s contest a centennial, of sorts, except for an inconvenient truth: the backstory was invented in the 1970s by PR men trying to get the hot dog stand on the map.

  • In this photo provided by BBC America, from ’The Hunt’,  a Thomson’s gazelle leaps away from a cheetah’s trip in Kenya. ’The Hunt,’ a seven-part documentary series from the creators of the landmark ’Planet Earth,’ presents the case for reconsidering predators as the bad guys of the natural world. Through its storytelling approach, ’The Hunt’ attempts to put each predator’s quest in context. ’When you see a cheetah hunting and you realize she has four 8-month-old cubs and they will starve if she doesn’t kill, then you’re with the predator more,’ said executive producer Alastair Fothergill.
