VARIOUS OF ICE BALLS STORY: Hundreds of egg-like ice balls covered a beach in Finland on Wednesday (November 6).

Covering much of Hailouto beach, the ice balls are formed when pieces of ice get in contact with water and pushed out to the shore by the waves.

Images of these ice balls were first shared on social media by an amateur photographer.

An ice specialist from the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) said these ice balls were rare but not supernatural.

They are formed when the conditions are right in the air and water.

Study suggests COVID-19 infects majority of bad dreams

In a paper published in Frontiers in Psychology, scientists used artificial intelligence to help analyze the dream content of close to a thousand people and found that the novel coronavirus had infected more than half of the distressed dreams reported. The researchers crowdsourced sleep and stress data from more than 4,000 people during the sixth week of the COVID-19 lockdown in Finland. About 800 respondents also contributed information about their dreams during that time - many of which revealed shared anxiety about the pandemic."We were thrilled to observe repeating dream content associations across individuals that reflected the apocalyptic ambience of COVID-19 lockdown," said lead author Dr Anu-Katriina Pesonen, head of the Sleep and Mind Research Group at the University of Helsinki.
