An England beach soccer player took out his frustration on the back of an opponent’s head after scoring on his own goal. Matthew Evans picked up the soccer ball and kicked it right into the head of an opposing player. It doesn’t appear he did it on purpose but it still earned him a penalty.
A father was caught on tape placing his toddler into a front-loading washing machine at a laundromat.
Video was obtained from the laundromat’s closed circuit video surveillance camera and shows a couple with a small child doing laundry. For reasons unknown, the father proceeds to place the child into the washing machine and close the door. The father then realizes the machine is filling with water and immediately tries to open the door to the machine but apparently the doors lock automatically. The parents desperately try to free the child from the washer. Finally after about 30 seconds a person who appears to work for the laundromat is able to free the child. No word on whether the parents will be investigated.
You might think twice before buying that .30 cent cup of Ramen noodles after researchers make a startling discover about processed foods like the popular noodle.
A research project aptly titled “Mouth to Anus” or M2A was started by artist Stefani Bardin to see exactly how our body digests certain foods. She, along with help from gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo of Harvard University, used a pill cam to show what processed food looks like during digestion.
During the experiment, two different pills were used. One of them recorded pressure, temperature, and pH. The other recorded video from inside the subject.
Bardin fed two subjects similar meals with the big difference being how the foods were processed. The first subject received gatorade, instant ramen, and gummi bears. The second subject received handmade noodles, hibiscus tea, and pomegranate-cherry juice gummies. The pill cams recorded the digestion of the foods and demonstrated how the body handles foods that are processed differently.
A Boston high school teacher was suspended after school administrators found out that he had performed in gay porn videos.
Kevin Hogan, an English teacher and crew coach at Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, started working for the school at the beginning of the school year in 2011. School administrators were made aware of at least 3 pornographic movies that Hogan starred in that were released in the same year.
A Vietnamese man, who developed a tumor on his leg at the age of 6, finally had the tumor removed after it reached a weight of nearly 200-pounds.
Nguyen Duy Hai, 32, underwent a 12-hour surgery to remove the tumor and is said to be recovering. While the tumor was not cancerous, it was beginning to consume vital nutrients from his body. The sheer size alone made it difficult for Hai to get around and was also causing a strain on his already weakened heart.
Dr. Mckay Mckinnon, a U.S. surgeon, performed the surgery at no cost. The remaining $12,000 needed for hospital stay, etc was raised by charity.
The Swedish Minister Of Culture is under fire after photos from a World Art Day party began to surface showing her cutting a cake designed to look like a tribal African woman complete with a torso, genetalia and a live human head decorated in blackface that protruded out of an opening in the table.
Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth was asked to kick off the party by performing a clitoridectomy on the cake. She then fed the cake to the performance artist whose head served as the head of the cake. The red velvet cake had a chocolate frosting and of course was red on the inside to symbolize blood.
Ironically, despite the racist undertones the cake symbolized, Liljeroth’s political position on racism is quite the opposite. She has publicly expressed her distaste for racism in the press and fought to keep newspapers from obtaining government subsidies who publish racist content. So far she has not commented on the cake.
Ugur Acar underwent surgery for a face transplant, one of Turkey’s first. Doctors say the surgery was a complete success and expect Acar to make a full recovery in about 6 months. Acar’s reaction to seeing his face for the first time was one of complete amazement.
