  • Dangerous brown recluse spiders found in family's garage

    A family in Michigan is scratching their heads after discovering unusual tenants inside their garage last week. On the floor of their unheated, detached garage in Davison, they spotted two long-legged spiders, which turned out to be brown recluse spiders -- a dangerous type of spider with a powerful bite. Most bites are minor, but occasionally, skin around a brown recluse bite will become necrotic, turning a dark color and becoming a deep, open sore as it dies. The family has no idea where the spiders with 3- to 5-inch-long legs came from or how they made their way into their garage. Howard Russell, an entomologist at Michigan State University Diagnostic Services, confirmed the spiders were,

  • Mom lets daughter's school know her 10-year-old is 'done' with homework

    Making tough calls for your children is a vital aspect of parenting. One brave mother stepped up to the parenting plate for her child, sharing an email she sent to her daughter's school explaining that her 10 year old is "done with homework" because of the undue stress it causes. SEE ALSO: Instead of telling women who might get pregnant they can't drink, study suggests trusting them Bunmi Laditan, a mom blogger in Quebec, explained on Facebook that she told her daughter's school that her child would be "drastically reducing" the homework she'd be completing, but that she "was trying to be polite because [her daughter is] finished." “I just sent an email to her school letting her know she’s all done,” the mother wrote. "Over the past four years I've noticed her getting more and more stressed when it comes to school," the troubled mother wrote, "And by stressed I mean chest pains, waking up early, and dreading school in general." Laditan explained that her daughter often does homework until 6:30 p.m., with little to no time to relax after dinner. “Is family time not important?” she wrote, “Is time spent just being a child relaxing at home not important? Or should she become some kind of junior workaholic at 10 years old?" “Children need downtime after school the same way adults need downtime after work. They need to play with their siblings," she continued. Laditan later commented on her own post to further explain her point of view. Image: bunmi laditan/facebookThe mother clarified that she wasn’t blaming her daughter’s "incredible" teachers, and that she simply feels the system isn’t working for her child. “I can’t watch her unravel anymore and be filled with so much stress at age 10,” she explained. Parents, teachers, and even therapists sounded off in the post's comment section in support of Laditan, relating similar experiences with children in their own lives.

  • An ‘overly obese’ body set a crematorium on fire – again

    It seemed like business as usual on Wednesday when a routine cremation in Cincinnati, Ohio started a fire that got out of control. But it wasn’t due to faulty wiring – it was the amount of fat on a body employees were cremating. “My operator was in the process of cremating remains and (the body) was overly obese and apparently it got a little hotter than the unit is supposed to get,” owner Don Catchen told WCPO. “One of the cremation containers that we had close got caught on fire and that’s what burnt.” The blaze took two hours for firefighters to get under control, according to WCPO, but there was little serious damage since crematoriums are built to withstand fire. Catchen called it a “freak

  • Donald Trump's lies are working brilliantly. This new poll proves it.

    With the White House visibly agitated by the possibility of brutally negative 100-day coverage of President Donald Trump's tenure so far, he has insisted that the press is misrepresenting his record, while also vastly inflating it himself — thus preparing his voters to dismiss everything they are being told about his historic lack of accomplishments. A new Post-ABC News poll suggests that this may be working for Trump. It finds that enormous majorities of his voters believe the news media regularly publishes false stories. 80 percent of Trump voters think it's a bigger problem that news organizations produce false stories, while only 3 percent of them think it's a bigger problem that the Trump administration makes false claims.

  • Airline tells newlywed to pay thousands over last name change

    Newlyweds Brendan and Julia Widdowson have been looking forward to their European honeymoon since they booked it last year. The 28-year-old Australians, who tied the knot at a Victorian winery in February, were all set to take off on the trip of a lifetime through Croatia, Montenegro and Albania next month. But the pair was left “devastated” and “bewildered” when Virgin Australia said they would have to pay more than $8,500 to re-book their trip — all because Julia took her new husband’s name after the wedding. “We thought it would be a simple process, and we may incur a small fee, to update the name on the ticket,” said Brendan, a partnerships manager at a loan provider. But when he contacted

  • On his birthday, his 13-year-old sister hugged him. Then he shot her in the head

    On Martaevious Santiago’s 17th birthday, he shot his 13-year-old sister in the back of the head. She had just hugged him in the kitchen of the family’s Florida City home, police said. As they separated and Tedra King walked away, Martaevious pointed a loaded semiautomatic handgun at her. Then he pulled the trigger and killed her. Martaevious told police it was an accident. The shooting happened Tuesday night inside a modest Florida City subdivision called Washington Park. Outside the home on Wednesday, shocked family members — some on the way to identify the young girl’s body at the morgue — demanded privacy. “Everybody that knows a word of prayer, please pray for the Bess family,” close family

  • Want to Raise Successful Kids? Make Sure to Do This (Most Parents Don't)

    Do you want your kids to grow up to be successful? Of course you do. So you send them to the best possible schools and pay close attention to make sure they're completing their homework and you sign them up for lots of after-school activities. You limit how much time they spend watching TV or playing video games. You make sure they get plenty of fresh air and exercise. You feed them only healthy, organic food. You make sure they feel loved and protected, and you encourage to dream big and to believe in themselves. But do all that, and you could still be missing the most important thing you should do to help your kids grow up to have happy successful lives: Being a model yourself of what you want

  • Even Donald Trump's birthday tweet to Melania has a factual error it in

    Our Tweeter in Chief Donald Trump, is known for playing fast and loose with facts, but you'd think a birthday message to his wife would be a nice softball. He can garner a few awws and then move on.  Nope. SEE ALSO: The only Melania in the White House is this photograph On Wednesday, Melania Trump celebrated her birthday. And like most loved ones do on their spouse's birthday, Donald Trump took to Twitter to send his best wishes to his wife. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our @FLOTUS, Melania! https://t.co/rYYp51mxDQ pic.twitter.com/np7KYHglSv — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 26, 2017 However, when it came to the graphics, there was a ball drop. Or a star drop, if you will. If you look closely you'll notice that the flag in that graphics package only has 39 stars, which leaves out quite a number of states.  And because nothing escapes the internet, Twitter definitely noticed. There are only 39 stars on that flag, sir. https://t.co/KATgoLIQUv — Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) April 27, 2017 This is so weird: The American flag on @FLOTUS Melania Trump's birthday card only has 39 stars. H/t: @eventsforgood pic.twitter.com/IYd2hdOXGJ — Christina Wilkie (@christinawilkie) April 27, 2017 Very weird. Since the 39 star flag was never official since we went from 38 to 42 states in 1890. https://t.co/TG5JWAPOA3 — MyNinjaTurtle (@MyNinjaTurtle) April 27, 2017 @chrislhayes Wonder which 11 states are slated for destruction? #39StarFlag pic.twitter.com/KKkIS1ElZB — kathy greenstone (@KathyGreenstone) April 27, 2017 To make matters even more worse, this is not the first time Donald Trump has shared the 39-star flag. As MSNBC's Chris Hayes pointed out, Donald Trump also shared the flag at the end of the video welcoming freed Egyptian American Aya Hijazi who was imprisoned in Cairo. @christinawilkie @FLOTUS @eventsforgood IT'S THE SAME FLAG IN THE END OF THIS VIDEO!!!! https://t.co/jZOSS7VjNh — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) April 27, 2017 Someone in the WH graphics operation has a 39-star flag saved on their computer as the current flag and is using it everything! — Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) April 27, 2017 For reference, Mr. President, we've never actually had a 39-star flag in the history of the United States.  The design was actually created in 1889 when flag makers were anticipating the addition of the Dakotas to the United states. Flag makers incorrectly assumed that what we know as North Dakota and South Dakota would be admitted to the US as only one state, not two. The New York Times notes:  Long story short, flag makers jumped the gun, so now 39-star flag was never an official flag. They are now just collectors items. Note: there was never an official 39-star flag, but some folks thought there would be 39 states in 1889, so some flags were actually created — Brian Ruh (@brianruh) September 5, 2016 WE NEVER EVEN HAD A 39 STAR FLAG https://t.co/XpMS0LMd97 — SheriffFruitfly (@sherifffruitfly) April 27, 2017 Now, to be fair, this is probably just a graphic design mistake from the White House art department, not a comment on how many states Trump wishes we had. But the fact stands: The. President. Of. The. United. States. Tweeted. A. Fake. Flag. Happy Birthday, Melania!

  • Questions continue to surround the prison life and death of Aaron Hernandez

    An attorney for a prison friend of Aaron Hernandez raised fresh questions Wednesday about the life of the former NFL player, whose death in a Massachusetts prison has done nothing to bring closure to the mysteries surrounding him. Among the claims by Larry Army Jr., an attorney for prison inmate Kyle Kennedy: Hernandez and Kennedy knew each other before Kennedy’s 2015 incarceration; one of the suicide notes Hernandez left was meant for Kennedy; the two had asked to share a cell; and, weeks before his death, Hernandez had hinted at suicide in a letter to Kennedy that the latter interpreted as a joke. Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence without parole for murder, died in his prison cell
