The Greatest Phone Message of All Time

I'm a big fan of storytelling. Ever since I was a little girl I've loved hearing stories in many different forms. One of my all time favorites is NPR's program This American Life. If you haven't heard of this gem, it's a weekly mostly nonfiction radio show that is hosted by Ira Glass and features essays, field reports, memoirs, short fiction and found recordings and footage. Each week the show focuses on a certain theme and the show at its core shows the grace and beauty of the human spirit. Hysterical, heartwarming and everything in between. It's hard for me to truly express my words for how much I love this show, so I will just ask that you listen to act one from recordings for someone. I'll just tell you the story involves what the listeners claim is the greatest thing ever, a voicemail message that says, and I quote "you and the little mermaid can go f**k yourselves". If that doesn't sell you on the show, I don't know what will :)

Women Dying to Look Beautiful

Another young, vivacious adult female died in late September during a recent liposuction process in Toronto. How sad that this talented, successful, single female parent lost her life hoping to free her pot of a small hill of fat. It is most eccentric that her operating surgeon had no fortes and no infirmary privileges. She, the surgeon, was preparation in household medical specialty but she is not listed as an accredited household practician with the College of Family Physicians of Canada. The scenario of allowing untrained and unqualified practicians to name themselves decorative operating operating operating operating surgeons that actually execute surgeries is repeated many modern times a twenty-four hours in many countries of the world. In the United States plastic surgeons must experience licensing and accede to hard-and-fast regulations, but there's little to halt general practicians from calling themselves decorative surgeons and performing the same processes that accredited plastic surgeons perform. Family doctors, physicians, not trained in plastic surgery are performing decorative processes because injections that plump and paralyze, liposuction, surgery and other processes are very, very moneymaking to their underside line. They are in it for the money. This is a growth populace wellness hazard and slack criteria permitted this decease to happen. It is vitally of import to your wellness and well being to size up the makings and preparation of a practician if you are considering any invasive procedures. Do not be intimidated or flustered to inquire when, where and how extended the physician have been trained in any procedure. Some doctors are trained only hours over a weekend in certain procedures. You must retrieve that decorative operating surgeon is a misnomer, there really isn't such as a differentiation in the medical community. Oh sure there are doctors who name themselves decorative operating surgeons but their preparation may have got been in dentistry, internal medical specialty or proctology. In other words you really necessitate to believe carefully about allowing anyone the chance to gull with your long-term health and well-being. If you want to lose weight for example, you should search weight loss programs, not run to the first doctor that promise you weight loss miracle surgery. This includes doctors who are practicing in foreign countries.

There have got been incidents of bungled processes and even deceases directly attributed to untrained and unlicensed, unscrupulous people vying for your dollar. They look to odor despair like sharks swimming after blood. Shame on you if you fall for their under-handed ploys. You must execute your owed diligence and inquire the difficult inquiries before you see booking your traveling or their services. Liposuction, breast augmentation, forehead lifts, facelifts, injections and more than enticement unsuspicious ageing work force and women into believing that nil untoward could ever go on to them. The statistics of processes that have got been botched or resulted in decease are not easily obtained. This is not surprising when you see how long the industry have gone unregulated. These are toxic secrets that have got been hidden from position for a very long time. There are reported deceases in Arizona. The fortune are so eccentric but you must cognize how people parade themselves as operating surgeons when they are not. The Grand Canyon State Democracy studies on July 12, that a massage healer performed a liposuction process in which a adult female died. A homeopathic physician who was denied a medical doctor's licence by the state board did another process in which a patient died. Others who performed decorative surgery did not have got formal medical training, include a bookkeeper and a former eating house owner. Cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, stroke, paralysis, blood clots, harmful reactions to anesthesia, unqualified and untrained force are serious complications that most likely tin be avoided if you wisely understand that fooling with Mother Nature's handicraft can have got desperate consequences. What about those pettifoggers who shoot bogus blood serums into their unsuspicious clients? This was reported in Sunshine State when four people went into a comatoseness after receiving botulism and again in Las Vegas when a doctor and his married woman knowingly injected patients with botulism toxin type A, a cheaper word form of Botox. In Queens, New York, a cosmetician was arrested after administering bogus cosmetics injections into her watering place patients. Sadly, these and other sad narratives are repeated many modern times during a year.

Facts About Bigfoot

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is an ape-like creature. It is believed that it inhabits forests, especially those from the North-Vest region from the Pacific in North America, where people have often reported that they have seen it. The term "Sasquatch" comes from the word sasq'ets from the Indian language, where it means hairy giant. Bigfoot is often described as a biped humanoid of large dimensions. It is usually covered with dark brown or dark red hair; it weights about 230 kg and has a height of about 2 or 3 meters. Some witnesses say that he has big eyes and a small forehead and that they have felt a disagreeable smell around the creature. The big footsteps that have been found measure 20 cm width and 60 cm length. Scientists do not believe in the existence of this animal, considering it a combination between folklore and false, wrong identifications and not a real animal. Although, a few scientists like Jane Goodall and Jeffrey Meldrum have expressed their interest into this matter.

In the last 25 years several organizations have tried to bring proof that Bigfoot really exists. DNA samples, footprints, pictures and photos with creatures believed to be Bigfoot have been gathered and analyzed. Once with the development of technology, the number of images with Bigfoot has grown considerably. In the most footage's, the animal appears for a few seconds and then runs away. Even the first white navigators that have come to explore America have heard stories about "the man from the woods", and they claimed that Bigfoot used to steal their supplies. In a few Indian tribes, stone sculptures with ape-masks have been found. One of these tribes has Bigfoot even as a totem symbol. In 1811 some huge footprints in the snow have been discovered in the Rocky Mountains. In the year 1924 a few miners claimed that they have been attacked by a so called "monkey creature" in a place called the Canyon of the Monkeys. The first recording with the animal has been taken on 20 October 1967 by Roger Patterson and Robert Grimllin in Bluff Creek.

One of the most famous climbers of the world, R. Messner, is a Bigfoot legend believer and claims that he has seen the animal himself. The most famous story about Bigfoot originates from the United States, where two police officers claimed that they have found the corpse of a hairy monster in an abandoned refrigerator close to a river. This story was widely broadcasted by famous TV channels and websites, but finally turned out to be false, the so-called "Bigfoot" being built from an old carnival suit, pig entrails, deer fillet and other animal residuum. Despite of this, reports, pictures and footages about the apparition of a “giant monkey” have been narrated constantly during the years and continue to appear even in these days. People confessed that they have seen the monster on Mountain Cheam from British Columbia, North-West from Ontario, on highway 101 from California and near the Lake Skiff, at the border with Canada.

Man Arrested for Liyng

A man was arrested for falsely telling police he had committed murder. He thought his story that he murdered someone would get him a faster response from police got his wish. However, police did not appreciate the lie and tossed him in jail. Tyler police said they received a 911 call about 7 p.m. Monday from 38 year old Mark Anthony Johnson stating he had just committed a homicide and was armed with a weapon at 1007 NNW Loop 323. "Several officers with the department responded "Code 3" (running full speed with lights and sirens) to the scene" a statement read. Officials said Johnson then told officers he had not killed anyone and explained he was as-saulted earlier and that he thought the police would get to the scene quicker if he reported he had killed someone. Officers arrested Johnson for the false report and booked into the Smith County Jail on the misdemeanor crime. Officers did take a report from Johnson concerning the assault and will investigate that case. Tyler Police Department Public Information Officer Don Martin said giving a false claim to police is not a common occurrence.
 "This is not the norm and especially to this degree.  We've had people report false crimes, but for someone to call saying they have committed a homicide just to get us there quicker is not the norm" he said. Martin said Monday night's incident could have proved deadly because officers rushing to the scene could have had an accident or the suspect could have been injured by officers responding to what they believed was a scene with a shooter. "During a call like that they're all in the frame of mind they have an active shooter who has killed someone. They don't know what the person is thinking or what might happen" he said. Martin said if a person is a victim of a simple assault which has occurred and the suspects are gone, then it is not an immediate response. However, if the assault is aggravated and someone is seriously injured or threatened with serious injury, then it is a priority call. Smith County records show Johnson has been arrested multiple times on charges, including felony, drugs and theft.
