Little girl finds stray puppy and hides it in her bag


We all have our favourite pet when we were little. For four-year-old Qi Qi, she loves the stray puppy she picked up on her way to school.
The little girl has become an internet star in China after a video emerged showing her taking the pet dog to school by hiding it in her bag.
And when she was caught by a teacher, a terrified Qi Qi cried and begged the teacher as she mistakenly thought the teacher would throw away her dog.
The footage was filmed on April 7 at a kindergarten in Suining, south-west China’s Sichuan Province, according to the video provider Pear Video.
The report said that Qi Qi had found the dog on her way to the kindergarten. She liked the puppy so much that she decided to take it with her to school by hiding it in her school bag.
The puppy, however, barked in the class. Qi Qi’s teacher heard it and called the girl to the office afterwards.
The four-year-old thought her teacher was going to get rid of her pet. Terrified, she cried and begged the teacher: ‘Don’t throw it away. It won’t bite!’
The teacher, who is unnamed, later said to Pear Video: ‘I told her to come to my office. She kept telling me the dog wouldn’t bite people. She told me not to throw it away.’
The teacher explained that there is a river outside the kindergarten and the pupil, by mistake, thought she would dump the puppy into the river.
She also said Qi Qi has a twin sister.
Apparently, Qi Qi adored her puppy so much that she would share her lollipop and lunch with it. Her grandmother went to the kindergarten the next day and explained the matters to the teacher.
The video has been viewed nearly five million times since it was published earlier today on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent to Twitter.
Some also said that the girl would get rewards in her future life for being so loving and sympathetic.

Firefighter Andrew Klein pulls unconscious dog from burning apartment, gives him CPR to save his life


LOS ANGELES — California firefighters who spent 20 minutes performing mouth-to-snout resuscitation on a dog they rescued from a burning apartment are being hailed as heroes.
The dog’s owner, 35-year-old Crystal Lamirande, had just returned to her Santa Monica apartment Tuesday when a neighbor yelled there was a fire.
Lamirande frantically tried to save her dog, a 10-year-old Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu named Nalu, but the smoke was too thick for her to go inside, she said Thursday.
Moments later firefighters arrived and Lamirande told them her dog was trapped inside.
That’s when firefighter Andrew Klein sprang into action, getting on all fours to search the apartment for Nalu as another firefighter sprayed water to keep the flames at bay. Klein found the unconscious dog a few feet from the fire in a bedroom.
“He was totally lifeless,” Klein said. “I picked him up and ran out of the apartment because time is key, especially with a small dog … Failure was not an option.”
As Lamirande knelt nearby crying, Klein and his crew spent the next 20 minutes working on reviving the dog using oxygen, CPR and what’s known as mouth-to-snout resuscitation.
Video taken by a passerby and posted on Facebook shows Klein and another firefighter patting Nalu’s belly as he starts breathing again with the help of oxygen.
“Alright, bud,” Klein tells the dog as he continues to rub him and encourage him to walk.
Lamirande, a radiology nurse, said she couldn’t believe how much time the firefighters took to save her dog, who she describes as family.
“His eyes were glazed over and he was not breathing and I assumed he was dead,” she said. “The firefighter said ‘I’m a positive person. Let’s just get him back.’”
Lamirande said Nalu spent the next 24 hours recovering in an oxygen chamber and was almost back to his normal self again Thursday.
“He’s been coughing but right now he’s fine and he’s so happy and smiling,” she said.
Klein, a self-described dog lover with two four-legged friends at home, said he felt proud of the outcome.
“He was essentially dead, so to see him kissing people and walking around wagging his tail was definitely a good feeling,” he said.
“He’s very happy, and we’re very happy, too.”

In a surprising event, a Turkish Airlines flight crew found themselves with an extra passenger on their plane. Yes, the unexpected passenger, a baby girl was born at 42,000ft (12,800m) when a woman went into labour mid-flight.
The mother, then a 28-week-old pregnant traveller was flying with Turkish Airlines’ TK538 Conakry (Guinea)-Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) flight. Shortly after the plane took off she was suffering in pain. The crew members noticed her and understood she was in early labour.
The cabin crew promptly responded and assist her during childbirth in the flight. The mother, Nafi Diaby, was laid across a row of seats and the stewardesses sprang into action to make it as comfortable as they could.

“The lady was in great pain,” flight attendant Bouthayna Inanir told Hurriyet Daily News, adding that “and then the baby was on the seat”. Inanir further added, “This was the hardest part. I had to grab the baby. I took her and give her to the mother.”

After the landing at Ouagadougou Airport, the mother, a French-Guinean woman and her newborn Kadiju were shifted to a hospital. It has been reported that the baby and the mother are in good health.
Most airlines allow expectant mothers to travel until they are 36 weeks pregnant. Turkish Airlines in their website specifies, “Pregnant women expecting one baby can fly with a doctor’s report that states that they are fit to fly by air carriage between 28-35 weeks. (Early days of the 28th week and last days of the 35th week.) After that, they are no longer fit to fly even with medical clearance.”
The crew members helped the woman to deliver her child and later the baby was also named in the flight. (Source: Turkish Airlines)
People around the world were happy with the untimely arrival and praised the crew for helping the woman. While most reactions were that of excitement as they claimed the baby would enjoy “free” services by the airlines for life, many also enquired and joked about what would be the place of birth in her birth certificate.

South Dakota Man Gets $190 Fine for Snake Without Leash

South Dakota man gets $190 fine for snake without leash

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A man who was fined for allowing his pet snake to slither freely in a South Dakota park said an animal control officer suggested he use a leash to restrain the reptile.

Jerry Kimball said he initially thought the recommendation was a joke because it was April Fool’s Day when he was fined $190 and ticketed last week for “animals running at large,” told the Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/2oMstxK ).

“He was literally asking me to put a rope around my snake,” Kimball said. “I was like, ‘Dude, no.’ I was dumbfounded.”

Kimball was approached by the officer after a woman complained that his Fire Bee Ball Python was roaming freely at Falls Park in Sioux Falls.

Animal Control Supervisor Julie DeJong said a city ordinance requires all pets to be leashed or restrained in public. She said pet snakes can be held or kept in a container to comply.

“If it’s in public and it’s not on a leash, it’s at large. The ordinance doesn’t really distinguish between animals,” she said.

DeJong added that snake lovers should be more sensitive to the aversion many people feel toward the animal. While non-venomous snakes are legal to own, not all park visitors will welcome a python in a park.

But Kimball said he considers it his mission to rid the public’s fear of snakes.

“That’s my purpose in life: To let people know that snakes aren’t killers,” he said. “What better way to give back than to help people understand these misunderstood creatures?”

Kimball said he plans to fight the ticket in court.

88-year-old man honors wife's legacy by making blankets for children in need


What started as a hobby his wife enjoyed has now become a beautiful way for Clayton Shelburne of Indiana to both honor her legacy and leave a positive mark on the world.
Clayton and Dolores Shelburne were married for 66 years before she passed away in May 2015. Clayton told CBS 4 Indianapolis that his wife initially started making blankets with a camping club, which would donate them to different organizations in the area. As the years went on, however, it became an activity that the couple could enjoy together — with one key distinction.
“She was the seamstress,” he said. “I was never a seamstress. This is a new ballgame because I was always an outside person.”
In his wife’s absence, Clayton has found himself with the time and resources to continue the charitable activity on his own. He now wields a yardstick and scissors, carefully measuring playful fabric and cutting it into patterns.
“My time is nothing,” Shelburne told CBS 4. “I’m 88 years old. I can do this when it’s raining outside and I enjoy doing it. I’m sure if my wife was here she would be happy I’m doing this too.”
In deciding what to do with the blankets when they’re done, Shelburne was particularly moved by a story about a father leaving his sleeping son in a vehicle along the highway while he went to get help with their broken-down car. It inspired him to help police in his county. So, he has now donated enough blankets to the Zionsville Police Department and the Boone County Sheriff’s Office that every patrol car can have one.
“We could show up to a crash and the weather could be like it is now where it’s nice and cold and that blanket will come in real handy when you wrap it around somebody in need,” said Sgt. Adrian Martin of the Zionsville Police Department.
He’s given the officers more than three dozen homemade blankets so far.
“For an individual, a civilian for that matter, to take it upon themselves to not only to take their time and invest their money and their personal stake into a product or event that benefits any law enforcement agency, particularly Zionsville, we appreciate that,” Martin said.
Now that he’s fully stocked the local police, Shelburne is turning his attention to the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis — further ensuring that his warm memories of his wife become a source of warmth for others as well.

In a first, women judges head all major High Courts in India


NEW DELHI: In the male-dominated world of higher judiciary, there is a silver lining — women now head the four major and oldest high courts in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai.With the appointment of Indira Banerjee as chief justice of the Madras HC on March 31, women created history by heading the four historical HCs, which were among the first few created in colonial India. Madras HC has six women judges, including the chief justice, while there are 53 male judges. Bombay HC is headed by Justice Manjula Chellur , who first headed an HC on September 26, 2012. She became Bombay HC chief justice on August 22 last year.Incidentally, Bombay HC has the highest number of women judges, 11, against 61 male judges.The number two in the HC is also a woman, Justice V M Tahilramani. Delhi HC has been headed by Justice G Rohini since April 13, 2014. The HC has nine women judges and 35 male judges. Here too, the number two is a woman, Justice Gita Mittal.Calcutta HC has been headed by acting chief justice Nishita Nirmal Mhatre since December 1 last year. But this HC has a poorer women-to men-judge ratio — 4 to 35.Among the 632 HC judges in 24 HCs, there are only 68 women judges, a mere 10.7%. There is just one woman judge, R Banumathi , among 28 judges in the Supreme Court.

Kansas firefighters, sergeant help to rescue bald eagle that could barely fly

A sheriff’s sergeant, two firefighters and an animal conservationist became birds of a feather to help rescue an injured bald eagle that was struggling to fly near a Kansas lake.

On Thursday morning, Sgt. Justin Antle, range master for the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office, said someone called in to report the bird near Lake Afton, a recreational park outside of Wichita.

When he got there, the eagle wouldn’t let him get more than 30 to 50 feet near him, Antle told ABC News.

“You could tell that it was injured,” he said. “It did not want to fly up at all.”

Sedgwick County Sheriff/FacebookMembers of the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office, Sedgwick County Fire Department and Eagle Valley Raptor Center rescued an injured bald eagle near a lake west of Wichita, Kan.

Since Antle said he is “not a bird expert by any means,” he called Ken Lockwood, the program director for the Eagle Valley Raptor Center, for assistance. On his way over to the scene, Lockwood stopped by Station 39 to enlist the help of two firefighters with the Sedgwick County Fire Department, he told ABC News.

Antle kept an eye on the eagle until the fellow rescuers arrived. The eagle would fly about 10 feet up in the air before it had to land again, he said. The group followed it around for nearly two hours before they were able to contain it on some cedar trees, Antle said.

“Even when they can’t fly, they run like jack rabbits,” Lockwood said. “They do. They run like crazy.”

Sedgwick County Sheriff/FacebookMembers of the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office, Sedgwick County Fire Department and Eagle Valley Raptor Center rescued an injured bald eagle near a lake west of Wichita, Kan.

Once Lockwood was able to examine the male eagle — which he estimates to be able 3 years old — he originally thought the issues was in its legs. Its legs now appear to be fine, so it is being sent to the veterinary school at Kansas State University for blood work and X-rays.

The eagle is currently “extremely thin,” Lockwood said, adding that juvenile eagles can often be skinnier due to their inexperience in hunting and older eagles stealing their food. Handlers will tube feed the eagle to get its weight up, and once the bird is “nice and healthy,” Lockwood will place it in a pen with another eagle for a couple of weeks for exercise and conditioning.

Once the rescue center thinks the eagle is “ready to go,” Lockwood will call the members the sheriff’s office and fire department who assisted in its rescue to be apart of the bird’s release back into the wild.

The agencies often work together for eagle captures, Lockwood said, adding that the sheriff’s office has stopped traffic on more than one occasion so he could retrieve an injured bird.

“The sheriff’s department can put it on their resumes that they’re eagle catchers now,” Lockwood said. “It’s an eagle — that’s our national symbol. You just have to go rescue them. You can’t just let it die.”

Courtesy Justin AntleToday wasn’t Sedgwick County Sgt. Justin Antle’s first time rescuing a bird of prey. Last year, he retrieved an owl that had flown into a Kansas home.

While eagles are commonplace around the range, Antle said this was his closest encounter he’s ever had with one. But, this wasn’t his first time rescuing a bird of prey. Last year, retrieved an owl that had gotten into a resident’s home, he said.

“Today was my second bird rescue, I guess,” Antle said, laughing. “It’s pretty amazing.”

JUSTICE SERVED : Texas Man Who Intentionally Swerved into Bikers Sentenced 15 Years in Prison


Justice Served to this grumpy old man
Late 2015 this horrendous video clip surfaced, depicting an angry Texas man  intentionally swerving into bikers. Firstly let’s figure why he did it, well according to the video it was because the bikers crossed the double yellow. Although this is illegal, his reactions was definitely too far.
Furthermore he severely injured the passenger, 38 year old Debra Simpson, who was admitted into the intensive care unit. She received  a broken arm and multiple other injuries. The driver, 37 year old Eric Sanders got off lucky with only minor injuries. You could tell something was wrong when you saw the passenger just laying on the ground not moving.
The 69 year old man in the video was proclaiming, ” I don’t care”, multiple times but in court he had a different story and suddenly began to care when it came jail time.
He was claiming a spider bit him and he lost control, not the strongest of defences when you outright admit to your crime in the video. Lucky for the riders and everybody else on the road a fellow biker recorded everything with his helmet cam.
The man was sentenced to 15 years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. One more crazy off the road  and justice served , woo!
