The Mummy Baby: 6500 Years old Peruvian Child Naturally Mummified In The Hot, Desert Environment.

                                    


This Peruvian child mummy, known as the "Detmold Child," has been radiocarbon dated to 4504-4457 B.C. more than 3,000 years before the birth of King Tut. The child, which was about 10 months old when it died, naturally mummified in the hot, arid desert environment.


More than 6,500 years ago in Peru, this tiny baby's brief battle for life finally came to an end. The child, no more than 10 months old, had a serious heart defect and suffered from growth problems.

After contracting pneumonia and then suffering circulation failure the sick child died and was wrapped in linen and buried with an amulet hung around its neck.

A Growing Number Of Women Are Having Their Toes Shortened Or Completely Removed In Order To Make Wearing Stilettos A Less-painful Experience.(Details)

   

According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, eighty-seven percent of women have had foot problems from wearing uncomfortable or ill-fitting shoes, like high-heels. But while some give-up on the problematic footwear, others love wearing them so much they will appeal to surgical procedures such as shortening toes, receiving foot injections and even completely cutting off pinky toes in order to make walking in them bearable. “Unless you’ve been there, and you can’t find shoes, and you’re in pain, don’t judge,” Susan Deming, a patient who recently had one of her toes shortened, told Fox News. “I was having calluses, and just, all sorts of problems with my left foot.  And there finally was a solution.  There’s never been a solution before.” Some of Susan’s toes were longer than the others, making her left foot an entire size longer than her right foot, so she cut off about a centimeter off her second toe. “I’ve never felt this good about something I’ve done,” she said.  “If it’s vain, it’s vain.”

Sam Alexander The Man With Two Faces; A Man With A Kind Heart & A Face To Match.

    


Sam Alexander was born a relatively average man. In his early 20’s he was actively pursuing a career in theatre and had been recently promoted at the Shubert Theatre in Chicago when personal disaster struck. Although the details are a little sketchy, Sam was ultimately involved in a huge gasoline explosion that was the result of his own carelessness. While he was able to instinctively save his eyes by raising his arm, he received deep burns around his lips and lower face. Even more unfortunate, his wounds festered and became severely infected. Doctors were forced to remove much of his lower face and lips, practically to the bone. As a result, Sam Alexander was left with a permanent and disturbing teeth-gnashing grimace and a gruesome visage.

See Photo: The Lonely Tree Of Ténéré Is The Most Isolated Tree On Earth.




L'Arbre du Ténéré, known in English as the Tree of Ténéré, was a solitary acacia, of either Acacia raddiana or Acacia tortilis, that was once considered the most isolated tree on Earth— the only one for over 400 kilometres (250 mi). 

It was a landmark on caravan routes through the Ténéré region of the Sahara in northeast Niger — so well known that it and the Arbre Perdu or 'Lost Tree' to the north are the only trees to be shown on a map at a scale of 1:4,000,000. The Tree of Ténéré was located near a 40-metre (131 feet)-deep well. It was knocked down by a drunk truck driver in 1973.

Why I Might Drop the iPhone 5 for the Galaxy Note II, and you should too - Forbes

I’ve been wrestling with how the iPhone 5 is since I got it. I paid full whack – just shy of $700 – for it, off-contract, just to be part of the same Apple iClub I’ve been in since the first one came out and everybody thought a Smartphone was a dumb idea. And I didn’t like it. I really wanted to. I told people it was awesome, that the LTE was finally there and made me so happy. I told everyone the Maps were great, and then I was in a parking lot half a mile from where I was meant to be. It was cold. It was rainy. I picked up the phone to ask the restaurant where I was, and had to repeat myself eight times to even get an idea of where I was.
After however many days it’s been since September, I’ve found the device infuriating. I forgave a lot of the iPhone 4S – it was, after all, over a year old, and the iPhone 5 would solve these problems. But I found it inconsistent, unfriendly to even the most casual business user. Searching for an email I’d sent only fifteen minutes previously was impossible. My calendar synced maybe once in eight tries. Phone calls were almost always met with a chorus of “Wuh-haaaat” and snickering at my accent.

From The Archive(s): How Renowned Globe-Trotter And Socialite, Olabisi Ajala Died In Penury In Lagos.




It is really heart wrecking because thousands of unsung and unknown Nigerians die
by the minute in similar or worst circumstances.
Can you imagine Bisi Ajala dying like a homeless dog? Oh, Bisi Ajala!!
Ebenezer Obey composed an "owambe" music for him in the 70's. I can just
recall the lyrics as,  " Ajala travels all over the world, Ajala travels all
over the world, Ajala travels, Ajala travels, Ajala travel all over the
world...."
And where was this man's many children and family? No where to be found. What
a pity! How many married folks cry to the LORD every second for children? How
many marriages have been dissolved because of no children? May God save our
families and our children to be there for us at old age.
Folks, it is news like this that breaks my heart for Nigeria and Nigerians.
How come must of Nigerians have become "olowo aano" ( Yesterday's Rich folks)?
How come majority of Nigerians have lived the better parts of their earthly
existence already?

Lagos Explosion Was Caused By ‘Knockouts’ - NEMA

The National Emegency Management Agency (NEMA), has confirmed this morning’s powerful explosion that rocked two buildings on Lagos Island, a densely populated part of Nigeria’s commercial hub, Lagos State.
AP’s correspondent, Jon Gambrell, broke the story earlier this morning.
Mr. Yushau Shuaib, NEMA Head of Media and Publicity, in a statement to DailyPost, said the agency “has mobilized response agencies and volunteers to an explosion in a building suspected to be loaded with ‘knockouts’ in Jankara area of Lagos”
He added that “Search and Rescue officers of NEMA, are having a hectic time to reach the place due to traffic and crowds.”
A look at the pictures of the shattered building makes it astonishing, the kind of ‘knockouts’ that are so powerful, to cause such destruction.
NEMA concluded by saying it was on top of the situation.

31-Year Old Woman Looks Like A 9-Month Baby

31-Year Old Brazilian Woman Looks Like a 9-Month Baby:

We bring to you the curious case of a real-life Benjamin Button, with a twist. A Brazilian woman, who has neither aged, nor is getting any younger. Born on May 7, 1981, Maria Audete do Nascimento still has the body of a baby.
Maria belongs to a poor family, living in a mud house in Ceara, Brazil. Her family consists of her father and his second wife, who has been caring for her ever since her own mother died, 13 years ago. The family cannot afford to provide any form of treatment for Maria, whose condition could have been reversed if treated at birth. For now, she continues to live like a baby, unable to tend to her own needs, and unable, even to speak. The home in which Maria lives, however poor, does not seem short of love. Her step-mother, Dora, has taken care of the woman-child since the day she was married. Dora believes that it is the passion of her life, and that the child was sent to her as a gift of God, to take care of.
