Justin Is Served

by on Feb.11, 2014, under Crime, Drugs

There has been some controversy over Justin Bieber's arrest for drag racing in Miami. Justin-Bieber-Reportedly-Speeding-In-Lamborghini-Hours-Before-DUI-Arrest Although his father was blocking off the street in an SUV, he was driving a rented Lamborghini, and was driving along with his friend Khalil who was piloting a red Ferrari, he has not been charged with drag racing. Justin-Bieber-Lamborghini Last week, the Miami Beach Police Department addressed allegations of inconsistencies in Bieber's arrest report, as well as the drag racing issue. "What the public has to understand is that the officer described his actions as drag racing, but he was not charged with drag racing," said Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez. "This is a residential street, Pine Tree Drive, where the speed limit is 30 miles an hour, and if you can imagine, at 4 a.m. in the morning, a Lamborghini and a Ferrari going from zero to 40, opening up those engines. That's what drew the officers' attention to their actions." In fact, the GPS record from the Lamborghini indicates that Justin drove it at 136 MPH earlier in the day. Here's an exclusive photo of the "baby singer's" arrest. speedy_mustang

Life In A Bubble

by on Jun.13, 2013, under Animals, Family, Health, Kids, Nature, Parenting

We assume that the process of being born would be a little disorienting. You emerge from a peaceful, dark, quiet, wet environment into a bright noisy world where you're the wettest thing around. posterior-baby1 It's as messy as it sounds. The baby doesn't pop out neat and clean. natural1 Then there are the leftover parts, like the Ikea crib you assembled. natural_placenta It's no wonder birth can be so difficult. You're trying to get the kid and all that resulting effluent through a relatively small passage. natural_emerge Normally the fetus develops in the amniotic sac, which is made of two membranes and filled with a clear fluid. The fluid helps to cushion the fetus from injury, keeps it at a constant temperature, and is something they can breathe and swallow. The amniotic sac starts to form and fill just a few days after conception. amnio_40 Typically the amniotic sac breaks on its own during birth, which is commonly referred to as a mother's "water breaking". amniob1 But in extremely rare cases, the amniotic sac remains intact as in this example delivered by obstetrician Dr. Aris Tsigris via caesarean section in Amarousion, north of Athens. The baby, unaware that anything had changed, behaved as if it were still in the womb. The baby could continue to feed off the placenta and would not start to breathe until the sac broke. baby_water Maybe he was just avoiding the real world as long as possible. puppy_amsac Every kid should have a puppy to grow up with. This one looks like a perfect match!

The Zhejiang Redemption

There are lots of reasons that a drain might clog. Grease and hair can build up over time. drain_clog Sometimes foreign objects make their way into a pipe.

You never know what a kid might flush down. drain_toys The plumbing was particularly noisy in one building in Jinhua in the coastal province of Zhejiang when residents reported the sound of a baby crying. They heard the cries from a waste pipe on the fourth floor. drain_baby1 Firemen sawed away at the four-inch-wide pipe just below a ceiling in which the boy was trapped. drain_baby2 The rescuers then rushed the section of pipe to a hospital. drain_baby3 A drain snake wasn't available, so firemen and surgeons used pliers and saws to get the baby out of the pipe. drain_baby4 The boy’s arms were pinned to his side and when the pipe was pried away, he let out a long wail at the Pujiang County People’s Hospital in Jinhua, eastern China. He was still attached to the placenta. drain_baby5 drain_baby6 The baby was covered with sewage, and had a skull fracture. The mother could face a charge of attempted murder. A police officer said she had hidden her pregnancy and claimed  the baby fell into the toilet after she unexpectedly gave birth. "The woman was on the scene during the entire rescue process, and admitted she was the mother when we asked her." He said police were still investigating whether she had any malicious intentions before deciding on charges. drain_baby7 drain_baby8 The baby, referred to as "Baby 59" for the incubator he occupies, is in stable condition and expected to recover. toilet_kid3

Close To The Breast

by on Nov.08, 2012, under Consumer, Culture, Education, Family, Games, Health, Kids, Nature, Parenting, Recreation, Toys

We've seen all kinds of dolls. There are dolls for adults, dolls you can shave, talking dolls, even dolls that walk. We have lifelike dolls, dolls with hair that grows, dolls whose eyes open and close, even pregnant dolls. There are Little Willy, the doll with a realistic "willy" that actually sprays water, and anatomically correct dolls. Creepy dolls are often the stuff of nightmares. There are a lot of those. Dolls that can be fed by bottle have been around for decades. But what about girls who want the full baby-feeding experience? The Breast Milk Baby is the first breastfeeding doll. It makes suckling sounds triggered by sensors sewn into the accompanying halter top at the nipples of the wearer. When the doll's mouth makes contact, it sets off the suckling sound. The doll also burps and cries. At a price of $ 89, Savannah, Tony, Cameron, Jessica, Lilyang, and Jeremiah are expensive and retailers have been reluctant to stock the dolls due to their controversial nature. The doll is made by Berjuan Toys, a family-owned, 40-year-old doll maker in Spain

Monster Truck Pull

by on Sep.15, 2012, under Health, Kids, Parenting, Recreation, Toys

When Easton Jarrett came home from his first day at school in first grade, he had his first baby tooth ready to come out. If he could read at first grade level and has kept up with this blog, he would have seen a variety of methods to take out a tooth. But Easton had an idea of his own. He thought of his radio controlled mini monster truck. He had his parents tie dental floss around the loose tooth and then around the back of the monster truck. Spoiler alert: Skip down to the video if you want to see it without knowing how it ends. Easton accelerates the RC truck, and it rolls away, pulling his tooth behind. "It's kind of bleeding." said Easton as he recovered his tooth. We recommend he keep his batteries charged. There are still a few laps to go.

No Visa? Carry On.

by on Jul.15, 2012, under Crime, Family, Kids, Parenting

An Egyptian couple arrived at Sharjah International Airport in the UAE on a Friday evening with their five-month-old baby. They were refused entrance because they didn't have a visa for the baby. So they didn't have to immediately return to Egypt, airport authorities allowed them to stay until the visa office opened on Sunday. On Sunday, after a new security shift had started, the couple thought to avoid the red tape and simply carry their infant along with them. They stuffed their baby into a bag and sent it through the x-ray machine. Security staff noticed a suspicious image. It was determined that the child was not dangerous, but his parents were arrested and charged with endangering the baby's life, because of exposure to radiation. A Sharjah police official commented, "This machine is very dangerous for anyone, let alone a baby in a bag to pass through. A case will now be raised against the mother and father, they both have visas to come to the UAE, but they have put the life of their child at risk."

Exposure to radiation leads to serious side effects in children, including an eerie glow.
