Wanted, Poop Miners

Underweight models could go to prison under French proposals


Italy, Israel and Spain have all passed bills banning the use of ultra-thin models, with France expected to follow suit. The French National Assembly is considering a health reform bill that includes measures to ban designers and labels from using models deemed "too thin" by healthcare standards. They would be subjected to periodic weigh-ins. Models who come in under weight would face fines of up to 75,000 euros, (£55,000) or even prison sentences.

A Mysterious Tribute.

A woman who spent her life caring for stray dogs received an unexpected -- and surprising -- tribute from the animals when she died.  At the funeral for Margarita Su├írez in Cuernavaca Mexico a pack of stray dogs came inside the funeral home to stand guard.  The dogs sat quietly around the casket all day and through the night.  All but one left in the morning, but the gang returned and stood by through the cremation.  Curiously, none of the dogs had anything to do with Mrs. Suarez previously , as she was buried 850 miles from her home.

zubbles


 Zubbles are like high-def versions of the classic soap bubbles. They contain a special dye that makes them vibrant pink or blue. The dye is nontoxic and non-staining, so if the bubbles pop on your shirt, the color will evaporate.
