A picture is worth a thousand words.

Former Governor of Puerto Rico Alejandro García Padilla took a jab at President Trump on Twitter following comments the President made about the United States' relief efforts on the island.

Padilla questioned Trump's rating of his performace as a "10," showing a group of surgeons operating on a patient using only light from their cell phones and flashlights more than one month after Hurricane Maria.

It's unclear where the photo, which has been widely circulated on Twitter, originated from.

In addition to retweeting the image, a number of Twitter users shared their own outrage over the lack of aid Puerto Rico has received in the weeks since the hurricane.
NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, who is stationed on the International Space Station, recently took some time to demonstrate that you can just set one of these bad boys going in Earth orbit and it will just pretty much just go on forever.

Because there’s less friction between the spinner’s components, the whole toy rotates in sync, not just the arms.

“Allowing the fidget spinner to float reduces the bearing friction by permitting the rate of the central ring and outer spinner to equalize, and the whole thing spins as a unit,” Bresnik explained in the video caption.
Miwa Sado, a young journalist for Japan’s state-run broadcaster, spent the summer of 2013 frantically covering two local elections in Tokyo.

Over the course of a month, she clocked 159 hours of overtime – she rarely took weekends off, she worked until midnight nearly every night.

On her birthday, June 26, she emailed her parents, who thought she sounded weak.

Not quite a month later, just days after the second election, she died of congestive heart failure – she was 31.

The case — the latest high-profile example of karoshi, or “death from overwork” — came to light only after the broadcaster, NHK, announced it this week.

Karoshi became widely recognized as a phenomenon in the late 1980s, as stories of blue-collar employees keeling over at work appeared to expose a sinister side to Japan’s postwar economic miracle – over the years, cases of karoshi have been reported among white-collar executives, automotive engineers and immigrant trainees.
It was originally thought that the unnamed 47-year-old man from Preston might have cancer – he was referred to a respiratory clinic after complaining of coughing up yellow mucus and feeling unwell for over a year.

Medics initially thought the patient, who had also recently suffered pneumonia and had been a long-term smoker, had a tumour after an x-ray showed a mass in a lung.

However during a bronchoscopy, which was carried out to help aid diagnosis, they realised it was a “long-lost Playmobil traffic cone” the patient had received on his seventh birthday – the miniature plastic cone, about 1cm in length, was removed with biopsy forceps.

While it is a common occurrence for children to accidentally inhale small objects, “a case in which the onset of symptoms occurs so long after initial aspiration is unheard of”.

The doctors said that to their knowledge, it was the first reported case of a tracheobronchial foreign body that was overlooked for 40 years.

The medics said: “On a positive note, his symptoms improved markedly and he finally found his long-lost Playmobil traffic cone in the very last place he would look.”
A concert goer who attended Electric Zoo's festival in New York was determined to get his money's worth when he buried alcohol under the ground at the site three weeks before the event. 

Alex decided to stash a bottle of vodka hidden in a water bottle at Randall's Island ahead of the actual concert so he could dig it up once he arrived.

The innovative concert goer said that he and his friends were intrigued to see if they could 'bury treasure without it being disturbed'.

'We used Google maps and marked our spot on GPS so we knew where it would be – then we waited.'

Alex posted images from the festival, which of course then went viral.

It's now led to a successful business venture with him now writing a book spilling all his festival secrets, due to be available in 2018.
Ultra-right wing news site Breitbart landed itself in hot water on Sunday after it was found to have posted an article about human traffickers in Spain with a picture of World Cup champion Lukas Podolski.

The article, published on Friday by Breitbart London entitled "Spanish Police Crack Gang Moving Migrants on Jet-Skis," discussed a group of smugglers who charged refugees 5,000 euros (approximately 5,900 USD) to bring them from Morocco to Spain via jet-ski.

The article's main image included a picture of a smiling Podolski flashing a peace sign on the back of a jet-ski with another man.

The picture, which shows Podolski wearing the German national team's uniform underneath his life jacket, was taken in 2014 during the World Cup in Brazil.

On Sunday, Breitbart switched out the picture after the original post sparked outrage, and more than a few jokes, on social media.

The far-right website also posted an apology in the form of an editor's note at the bottom of the article.
A gang of bullies nailed a plank of wood into the head of an autistic boy as he walked home from visiting his grandmother. 

Romeo Smith, nine, from Ma nsfield, was approached by the group who were waving sticks and calling him cruel names he climbed a tree to try and escape.

But when he tried to make his way home one of the yobs threw a plank of wood at him with a large nail protruding.

The piece of wood hit the youngster at the back of his head and the nail embedded itself into his skull.

Mother Natasha, 30, a nurse, had been walking home with Romeo and her three other children after calling at her mother's house nearby when Romeo was targeted.

'Romeo had lagged slightly behind,' said Natasha at the family home in Mansfield, Notts.
Some people go to desperate measures when they see a snake, any snake, but for a Texas homeowner, an impromptu anti-snake solution - set that repulsive reptile on fire - came back to bite.

Six fire crews in eastern Texas had to respond this week as a house burned, with the unidentified owner blaming the blaze on a blazing snake.

The homeowner in the Liberty-Eylau area south of Texarkana had spotted what was described as a large black snake, and decided to do something about it, pouring gasoline on the snake, which apparently was then set afire by her son, and then things really got hot.

The snake fled to a brush pile between two homes, the brush ignited, sending flames through tall, dry grass toward the residences, officials said.

A brick home the woman had recently purchased to move into was a complete loss, said Bowie County Sheriff's Deputy Randall Baggett, and the other home, which she also owned, suffered 20% damage.

The fire was being investigated, and the snake's fate was not known.
A massive fire has ripped through a skyscraper in Dubai for the second time in two years.

The 1,105ft Dubai Marina Torch tower - formerly the tallest building in the world - was engulfed in flames in the early hours of Friday.

Terrifying footage showed the fire spreading up the building.

Authorities said the building was successfully evacuated as dozens of firefighters brought the flames under control.

Videos showed debris falling the damaged building onto surrounding areas as terrified locals watched on.

The Dubai Civil Defence said in a statement online: "Firefighting teams in the civil defense in Dubai are currently dealing with a fire incident in one of the towers in the Marina area; four centers were moved to control the incident and limit its spread."
Documents show that Southaven officers went to the wrong house to serve a warrant on Monday, which resulted in the shooting death of a man who did not have any active warrants out for his arrest.

A warrant out of Tate County shows Samuel Pearman was wanted for domestic assault, but when Southaven officers arrived on Surrey Lane to arrest Pearman, they did not show up to the correct house.

Instead, officers missed their target by 36 feet and those 36 feet made all the difference to Ismael Lopez and his wife.

"Someone didn't take the time to analyze the address," attorney Murray Wells, who represents the family, said.

"This is incredibly tragic and embarrassing to this police department that they can't read house numbers."

Wells pointed out that the house officers should have gone to, the one where Pearman was located, had a large 'P' on the door.
