Weekly News 7

I got some news for ya!

I’ll let you decide if this is weird or good news but doctors were able to grow another nose for a man…on his forehead:

After a Chinese man’s nose was irreparably damaged from infection, his doctors decided to “grow” a second nose on the man’s forehead to replace the original nose.

If you’re lazy and don’t want to hit the link, here’s a picture. I bet that’ll spark your interest:

The medical field is making progress. My only issue is…well…look at him…he’s my age and I can’t imagine living like that.

For good news, we have a dog that saved a baby from crawling into the ocean. First of all, I’m glad the dog saved the kid. Second, the parents might want to keep an eye on him. Just my opinion.
For weird news, termites are so hard to get rid of because apparently, their poop helps resist poisons. Wait, I’m not done yet. So, scientists say the poop forms a “force field” that protects the little guys from harm. Well ain’t that story full of…

So, Rihanna, you know her, right? Sure you do. Anyway, she had a picture of herself and a cute little monkey. And then this happened:

Police confiscated two lorises from the pair — a 20-year-old man  and a 16-year-old boy — who could face charges of possession of protected  animals. The charge carries a penalty of up to four years in prison and a 40,000  baht ($1,300) fine. Weera said authorities have tried for years to crack  down on the problem of vendors exploiting wildlife, particularly in popular  tourist areas where people pay to pose for pictures with elephants, orangutans  and other animals.

There’s a monkey joke in there somewhere. Maybe in the rest of the story.

So I heard that the USA is the second most fat country in the world. That’s an improvement. Still, we throw out 40% of our food. Crazy. So then, could this work?

Doug Rauch, the former president of Trader Joe’s, is determined to repurpose the perfectly edible produce that ends up in the trash by cooking it, turning it into prepared meals and then selling it deeply discounted in a new type of store.

Eh…the thought of eating something on the verge of “dead” kinda backs me off but that’s probably for everybody which is why he’s gonna sell it cheap. This could really help with people in serious financial problems.

Lastly, the dog mentioned earlier was a hero. This dog…welp…

The man, who hasn’t been named, was hunting Sunday morning on Leech River near Federal Dam when a hunting dog jumped into the boat and engaged the trigger of a shotgun, causing it to discharge, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office. The man was shot in the lower right leg and taken to Cass Lake Indian Health Services, where he was treated for a non-life threatening injury.

So…yeah…the link to the story is right here.
