    • Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years for manslaughter

      From a Florida prison in November 2011, Shatarka Nuby penned a letter to the state’s health department about her cosmetically enhanced buttocks. Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon — Oneal Ron Morris — was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies. Her patients called her “Duchess.” Officials began investigating and interviewed Nuby. But four months later, she was dead. The official cause of death was respiratory failure

    • Woman saves 10-week-old puppy "left for dead" in plastic storage container

      An extremely malnourished 10-week-old puppy was discarded in a plastic storage container over the weekend in Columbia, Maryland, and now police are searching for the person responsible. Local resident Jill Eberhart called 911 Saturday afternoon to report that a dog was “left for dead” inside a container in a grassy area on the side of a road. Erbhart says the plastic container was covered in holes, allowing the dog to have some access to air, but he was left without food or water. “What’s it take to give an animal some water? We don’t live in a war zone here,” she told CBS Baltimore. “I’ve been here 44 years, I haven’t seen anything like that,” another neighbor told the station on Monday. Eberhart

    • Fake doc gets prison for deadly butt injections

      A woman dubbed the “Toxic Tush” doctor will spend a decade behind bars for using Super Glue and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant to enlarge women’s behinds and causing one patient to die. Oneal Ron Morris, 36, who is transgender, was sentenced to 10 years Monday in Florida’s Broward County court after pleading guilty to manslaughter and injecting several women with the toxic mixture, according to CBS Miami. Shatarka Nuby, 31, died after receiving as many as 10 injections from Morris between 2007 and 2010. She paid Morris as much as $2,000 for the deadly procedures, the Sun-Sentinel reported. “There’s no closure. Putting [Morris] in jail won’t bring her back,” said Nuby’s aunt Juanita in court.

    • WWE's Paige: 'I wanted to physically harm myself' after photo leak

      "Not only for what millions was telling me but because my family and my husband were suffering the same fate from the internet because of my mistake," she wrote in a statement released on Twitter on Monday night. Paige, a two-time Divas champion who has been sidelined following neck surgery, acknowledged last week that "personal and private photos of mine were stolen" and shared without her consent. In Monday night's tweet, she spoke about the harm and the hurt the incident brought. "The one thing that was the hardest was thinking 'my husband is going to leave me' 'my family will disown me' but I'm blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am," she wrote.

    • NASA just captured a photo of Jupiter that you won’t believe is real

      NASA has managed to capture some pretty stunning photos of all the cool stuff they've spotted over the years, and rarely does it fail to amaze. There's images of planet surfaces, the rings of Saturn, and even black holes flying through space totally unchecked . Rarely, however, does a photo look so unreal that at first glance you'd be likely to mistake it for a work of Earthling art. A new photo captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft falls into that category, and oh what a sight it is. The image, originally taken by Juno's "JunoCam" camera, was taken in early February and shows Jupiter's ever-swirling mass of storm clouds from an altitude of roughly 9,000 miles. The storms which continually rock the planet take on a milky appearance when captured up close, and a citizen scientist named Roman Tkachenko took the liberty of enhancing the photo's colors to bring out even more of the defining lines and edges. The Juno craft, packed with all kinds of fancy monitoring equipment, made its fifth flyby of the planet on Monday, which is also the fourth "science orbit," which is the name they give the flybys when all the instruments on board are up and running. The craft's next flyby won't happen until late May 2017, so it's a rare and exciting event when one of these close passes goes by without a hitch. The craft's data is currently being sent to Earth where researchers will continue to mine it for precious information about our solar system's most intimidating planet.
