Woman With Dry Lips Mistakenly Uses Super Glue To Moisten Lips, Glues Them Shut

A 64-year-old woman in New Zealand accidentally glued her lips shut when she mistakenly used super glue rather than lip balm to moisten her lips.
The 64-year-old, from Dunedin, reportedly woke-up at 11 p.m., Thursday night, and grabbed what she thought was her medicine. What she did not know was that she applied SUPER GLUE onto her lips rather than the medicine, and by the time she realized what she did it was too late.
The woman’s lips were glued shut and when she called for emergency assistance, all that she could do was grunt. The operators initially thought that the woman was being held captive, but when police arrived at her home, they found that she had sealed her lips shut!!
She was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released. Lesson learned, always turn on a light at night when you are reaching for anything. You just never know what may be laying around your bed in the middle of the night.

A couple got married in the nude with strangers as their guests after disapproving family refused to attend the naturist wedding.

Jeff Adams, 54, and partner Sue Adams, 47, tied the knot in their birthday suits and say they weren’t disappointed that relatives stayed away.

Sue wore only a veil, blue garter and white sandals while Jeff bared all apart from flipflops and a floral buttonhole stuck onto his bare chest.

British-born Jeff Adams and New Zealand partner Sue were married in a heart-shaped garden in a naturist resort Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, in April.

And the grandparents-of-six said they were determined to have a naturist wedding – even though it meant the the unusual ceremony was held in front of complete strangers.

Mum-of-three and bakery worker Sue, who lives in the Northern Gold Coast in Queensland, said: “This was my chance to have the wedding I wanted, because the first time I got married I hated the day.

“For me it is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life, but it wasn’t because it wasn’t the wedding I wanted. I was so uncomfortable and it was not my perfect day at all.

“It didn’t upset me in the slightest that family and friends didn’t come. For many years my life revolved around doing and being and saying what everyone else wanted me to and I’ve grown out of that now.

“The wedding was all about Jeff and I and our relationship and that was how it should be. If people didn’t like it, we really didn’t care.

“It was definitely a huge weight off my mind not to worry about having to find a wedding dress. I’m not a big shopper so as long as I had the ring I didn’t care about anything else – and not having to buy a dress was definitely a bonus.

“It was a beautiful day.”
Dad-of-one and metal and fabrication worker Jeff added: “Apart from a couple of friends and the couple who run the resort there was no one there we knew – nearly everyone was a stranger or just an acquaintance.

“But we were quite happy with that – we didn’t want all the traditional big wedding rigmarole, we wanted to do something for us.

“We were quite open with our friends and families about how it would work and told them they could come if they wanted to. It was their choice which we completely understood.

“Despite none of our family attending, we were perfectly happy with our wedding the way it was.

“We had both had similar wedding experiences before where they were completely governed by what family wanted and we wanted to do something for ourselves this time.

“All the reaction to our wedding when we’ve told people has been positive – we haven’t had any negative reactions at all. People did want to come but were too scared of their own bodies.

“The first time I went nude it was a bit freaky and the hardest part is getting naked in the first place, but once you do it, it feels perfectly normal and natural.”
New Zealand-born Sue and Jeff, who was born in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, met online in 2015 and discovered they were living just 20 minutes apart in rural Queensland.

After three and a half months together they visited a nudist beach together Byron Bay, New South Wales, before holidaying at a naturist resort in Europe, Croatia, in June 2016.

And when Jeff proposed during a trip to Eagle View Naturist Retreat in Rockmount, Toowoomba, in October 2016 they decided to have their wedding there.

The couple tied the knot this April and apart from several friends and the couple who owned the retreat they knew none of the attendees.
Jeff and Sue stayed in the buff for the duration of the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception and even had nude cake toppers crafted out of fondant icing.
A licensed marriage celebrant – Mandeep Sandhu from Gum Leaf Weddings – carried out the legally-binding ceremony and was the only guest in attendance to stay clothed.

The couple, who are now planning a trip to the USA this summer for their honeymoon, are also part-time nudists around their home.

1876: Alexander Graham Bell makes the first telephone call in his Boston laboratory, summoning his assistant, Thomas A. Watson, from the next room.

The Scottish-born Bell had a lifelong interest in the nature of sound. He was born into a family of speech instructors, and his mother and his wife both had hearing impairments. While ostensibly working in 1875 on a device to send multiple telegraph signals over the same wire by using harmonics, he heard a twang.

That led him to investigate whether his electrical apparatus could be used to transmit the sound of a human voice. Bell’s journal, now at the Library of Congress, contains the following entry for March 10, 1876:

I then shouted into M [the mouthpiece] the following sentence: “Mr. Watson, come here — I want to see you.” To my delight he came and declared that he had heard and understood what I said.

I asked him to repeat the words. He answered, “You said ‘Mr. Watson — come here — I want to see you.’” We then changed places and I listened at S [the speaker] while Mr. Watson read a few passages from a book into the mouthpiece M. It was certainly the case that articulate sounds proceeded from S. The effect was loud but indistinct and muffled.

Watson’s journal, however, says the famous quote was: “Mr. Watson come here I want you.”

That disagreement, though, is trifling compared to the long controversy over whether Bell truly invented the telephone. Another inventor, Elisha Gray, was working on a similar device, and recent books claim that Bell not only stole Gray’s ideas, but may even have bribed a patent examiner to let him sneak a look at Gray’s filing.

After years of litigation, Bell’s patents eventually withstood challenges from Gray and others — perhaps by right, perhaps by virtue of bigger backers and better barristers. In that respect, the controversy recalls the patent battle over the telegraph and foreshadows later squabbles over the automobile, the airplane, the spreadsheet, online shopping carts, web-auction software, and the look and feel of operating systems.

One thing we know for sure: Mr. Watson was at work that day in Bell’s lab. The telephone call did not interrupt his dinner with a special offer for home repairs or timeshare vacations in Florida.

VIDEO: One-in-a-million mixed-race twins reveal they have to prove they are sisters

‘We have to show our birth certificates’: One-in-a-million mixed-race twins reveal they have to prove they are sisters… but admit they stopped dressing alike aged 7
Lucy and Maria Aylmer, 20, from Gloucester are non-identical twins
Growing up, mother Donna would be asked if she was their ‘childminder’
Donna is half Jamaican and their father Vince is white
Twins say they have radically different styles
By Lucy Laing For The Daily Mail and Jo Tweedy For Mailonline

A striking set of twins, who were born with radically different colouring thanks to mixed-race parentage, have revealed how they constantly have to explain their looks to curious strangers.

Appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Lucy and Maria Aylmer, both 18, said classmates at school thought they were telling fibs when they revealed they were twins.

Lucy and Maria’s mother Donna is half Jamaican and their father Vince is white, and in a genetic quirk, together they managed to produce one white twin and one black twin.

The twins say it isn’t just their looks that are different, they have individual personalities too. Lucy (far left) says she’s much more shy than her sister Maria (second left), despite being born 23 seconds before her

Speaking to Ben Shepherd and Susanna Reid, the twins, from Gloucester, opened up about how their distinctively different looks had often made life difficult at school.

Red-haired Lucy said her pale complexion had prompted speculation that she’d been adopted: ‘My classmates used to ask if I was adopted because my siblings are all quite dark.

‘It was pretty hard, it went on in secondary school and it wasn’t very nice.’

When the girls were first born in 1997, their mother Donna had no idea that she could give birth to such different looking twins, described by experts as a one-in-a-million chance.

Lucy and Maria say schoolfriends don’t believe they’re twins

Growing up, the girls said they regularly overheard people asking their mum ‘Which one is yours?’ or ‘Are you the childminder?’.

Although most of their friends now know their unique story, they still have to present new acquaintances with photos of their birth certificates to prove they really are twin sisters.

‘Our friends do believe us now because we make a big fuss,’ says Maria. ‘We’ve got birth certificates. Lucy even had a picture of hers on her Facebook [profile].’

As the girls have turned into grown-ups they’ve tried to find their own style. Lucy, who has naturally curly hair, straightens it to ensure a sleek look. And the twins stopped wearing the same outfits when they were seven.

Lucy says: ‘I think I said to my mum: “I don’t want to wear the same clothes as Maria any more”.’

Same same, but different: Lucy and Maria Aylmer, 18, from Gloucester are non-identical twins

When asked at what age the girls knew their situation might raise questions from others, they say it took them a long time to know that their family was anything but ordinary.

‘It is what it is,’ says Maria. ‘We never even picked up on it until friends started talking about it at school.’

Their mother, who is 47 and a warehouse worker, and their 53-year-old father, who works as a scaffolder, split up after the twins were born.

The 18-year-olds have three older siblings, George, 23, Chynna, 22, and Jordan, 21. Lucy told the Daily Mail: ‘Our brothers and sisters have skin which is inbetween Maria and I. We are at opposite ends of the spectrum and they are all somewhere inbetween.

‘But my grandmother has a very fair English rose complexion, just like mine.’

She added: ‘No one ever believes we are twins. Even when we dress alike, we still don’t look like sisters, let alone twins.’

Family line: The twins’ mother Donna is half Jamaican and their father Vince is white, and their siblings George, Chynna and Jordan all have darker skin than Lucy and lighter than Maria

Two of a kind: The twins, who live in Gloucester, were born in January 1997

Different strokes: ‘Outgoing’ Maria studies law at Cheltenham College, while ‘shy’ Lucy studies art and design at Gloucester College

All together: Maria and Lucy with their mother Donna and siblings George, 23, Chynna, 22, and Jordan, 21

THE SCIENCE BEHIND ONE WHITE AND ONE BLACK TWIN
Non-identical twins come from separate eggs, so inherit different genes.

The girls’ half-Jamaican mother carries genes for both white and black skin.

By chance, Lucy will have inherited genes for white skin and Maria will have genes that code for black skin.

People with Afro-Caribbean heritage often have some European DNA, dating back in many cases to the slave trade.

This increases the chance of them passing on a gene for white skin to at least one twin.

Lucy said of her time at school: ‘We were in the same class, but no one had a problem telling us apart. Twins are known for swapping identities. But there was no way Maria and I could ever do anything like that.

‘Most twins look like two peas in a pod – but we couldn’t look more different if we tried. We don’t look like we have the same parents, let alone having been born at the same time.’

The twins’ interests are as different as their looks. Lucy studies art and design at Gloucester College whilst Maria studies law at Cheltenham College.

Lucy explained: ‘Maria was outgoing whilst I was the shy one. But Maria loves telling people at college that she has a white twin – and I’m very proud of having a black twin.’

72-yr-old woman has an unusual, well-paying job – to guard John Lennon’s glasses

This 72-yr-old woman has an unusual, well-paying job — to guard John Lennon’s glasses!
The unusually well-paid job is very tiring for the 72-year-old woman, who has been doing the task for past two years.

cuba, john lennon, john lennon cuba, lennon glasses, lennon cuba statue glasses, havana lennon park, lennon park spectacles keeper, cuba lennon park spectacle guard, world news, cuba news, world news, bizarre news, viral news, latest news Since 2000, when the world famous bronze statue-bench was installed in the park with Lennon’s iconic round spectacle, many pairs have gone missing.
Many senior citizens look for jobs post-retirement – some out of boredom and others because they need to. But more often than not, unless you’re a consultant with an MNC, the remuneration for such jobs may not be much to boast of. However, for Cuba’s Aleeda Rodriguez Padrasa, not only is her job rather unusual, it’s also fairly well-paying. Yes, she has a secured government job and earns 245 Cuban pesos a month for being a ‘spectacle-keeper’. Confused, right? Well, her job is to guard the pair of spectacles on John Lennon’s bronze statue in Havana’s Lennon Park.
The unusually well-paid job is very tiring for the 72-year-old woman who has been doing the task for past two years, CNN reported. She stands for 12 hours every day in the park to guard the spectacle, while tourists flock to take pictures with the Beatles legend sitting on the bench.
The popular tourist attraction in the island capital has a heavy footfall all through the year and has been at the receiving end of some mischief as well. Since 2000, when the world famous bronze statue-bench was installed in the park with Lennon’s iconic round spectacle, many pairs have gone missing. Tired of replacing the signature glasses, the government decided to hire a keeper to safeguard it.
Cuba has a very unique relationship with the legendary singer-composer as Beatles was banned in Cuba by the then leader Fidel Castro in 1964, as a part of his agenda to fight Western capitalism. However, Lennon was immensely popular among the masses and many of his albums were circulated by underground movement. Later, due to his vocal criticism of the US policies in foreign lands, Castro liked him and the ban was lifted. Later on Lennon’s 20th death anniversary, this famous statue was installed.

According to the report, about two years ago, her own glasses were taken from the statue. “The glasses were mine,” says Padrasa, “but I wasn’t watching and when I turned around they were gone.” After the third one went missing the government hired her. Since then every day as soon as the first tourist bus arrives in the park, she puts the pair of glasses atop Lennon’s nose securing it from her bag and spends rest of the day guarding it.

A man took his bride to court just a day after getting married 11-03-2017

A groom from South Africa took his bride to court just a day after their marriage, accusing her of not looking as pretty as before the wedding and of cheating him with much make-up.
The groom told court in south africa that he was shocked when he got up in the next morning and found that his wife looked so different, that he could not recognise her.
Newspapers in the country said the groom swore in court that he even mistook his wife for a “thief who came to steal his apartment”.
“The groom told the judge that he could not recognise his wife after she washed the make-up off her face.
“He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage,” the papers said, quoting a court source.
“He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.
“The groom told court that he is demanding $20,000 damages for his psychological suffering.”

Video: A Turkish couple who got married last week invited 4,000 Syrian refugees to celebrate with them

A Turkish couple who got married last week invited 4,000 Syrian refugees to celebrate with them.
Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat tied the knot in Kilis province on the Syrian border, which is currently home to thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in the neighbouring country.
It’s traditional for Turkish weddings to last between Tuesday to Thursday, culminating in a banquet on the last night, but this couple decided they wanted a celebration with a difference.
Hatice Avci, a spokesperson for aid organisation Kimse Yok Mu, told i100.co.uk that the charity feeds around 4,000 refugees who live in and around the town of Kilis, but last Thursday the newlyweds donated the savings their families had put together for a party to share their wedding celebrations with the refugees living nearby instead.
It was the groom’s father, Ali Üzümcüoğlu, who originally had the idea to share a bit of wedding joy with those less fortunate.

I thought that sharing a big delicious dinner with our family and friends was unnecessary, knowing that there are so many people in need living next door. So I came up with this idea and shared it with my son. I’m very happy that he accepted it and they started their new happy journey with such a selfless action.
Bride Esra Polat told i100.co.uk:
I was shocked when Fethullah first told me about the idea but afterwards I was won over by it. It was such a wonderful experience. I’m happy that we had the opportunity to share our wedding meal with the people who are in real need.
The wedding guests banded together to operate the food trucks and share the banquet with refugee families:

The bride and groom helped distribute the meal themselves and took their wedding pictures with people at the camp, according to local media.
Groom Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu said that he’d never taken part in something like this before but it was the “best and happiest moment of my life”:
Seeing the happiness in the eyes of the Syrian refugee children is just priceless. We started our journey to happiness with making others happy and that’s a great feeling.
Fethullah said that his friends were so inspired by the day that they’re planning on similar events for their own weddings.

BLOOD TYPE AND PERSONALITY

The Links between Your Blood Type and Your Personality, Diet and More Explained

The Japanese have been studying the link between blood type and personality for over 60 years. Find out what your blood type says about your personality and health.
Could blood type provide a key to wellness and even affect our personality? Canadian naturopathic doctor James D’Adamo and his son Peter D’Adamo think so. In Japan extensive research on blood type and personality began more than 60 years ago. Blood type can be a valuable clue for understanding your own uniqueness.

Today, it is even more common to hear the Japanese ask your blood type than it is for Americans to ask your astrological sign.

To most Japanese both biology and genetics have a role in determining personality. Approximately 90% know their blood type and for decades, blood typing has been used by: employers whenassessing job candidates, dating services for potential love matches and even companies for marketing soft drinks and other products.1

I seem to have a special relationship with Japan. I lived there from the ages of 12 to 15. I also studied with Lima Ohsawa, who founded Macrobiotics with her husband, George Ohsawa.

During my years of travel and study in Japan, I had an opportunity to learn first-hand the ways that the Japanese used blood types and it immediately caught my attention — especially because several years earlier I had also become fascinated with the work of Dr James D’Adamo.

His theory focused on how blood type could indicate the foods and lifestyle choices most compatible for you. One man’s food is another man’s poison. After meeting Dr James D’Adamo and reading his book, I began to question everyone about their blood type in an attempt to verify if blood type diet indeed provided clues to our individual uniqueness.

Twenty six years later, I am certain it does have merit and is worth our attention. In fact, when I began working with children with autism, I quickly saw that 8 out of 10 of them are blood type “A”. An “A” myself, this told me a lot about the little bodies they were in and what their special needs were.

Knowing that blood is the most fundamental nourishment for our bodies, it seems to me that different blood types would react differently to certain substances in food. Please reflect on this theory yourself and see if you don’t agree. While there is not a lot of “hard science” to date on blood type, it makes a lot of “common sense” to look further into this theory. Blood carries the nutrients of foods into our cells and clearly not all blood is exactly the same.

While Dr. James D’Adamo’s theories were based on patient observation, his son Peter D’Adamo has tried to use a more scientific approach on the activity of lectins (proteins found in food). Peter found that eating the wrong lectins for your blood type could cause weight gain, early aging and immune problems.

I credit much of the blood type information presented in The Body Ecology Diet to both James D’Adamo and Pete D’Adamo’s research, but because of my own observations with blood type and my fortunate exposure to the Japanese theory on personality and blood type – and as you will see in more detail in The Body Ecology Diet book — I do not always agree with these two brilliant and creative men.

BLOOD TYPE AND PERSONALITY
There are four blood types: O, A, AB and B, with blood type A being the most common where so much research on blood types have been focused — in Japan. In fact, 74% of the Japanese are blood type A. I find it interesting that the Japanese diet very much favors those with blood type A.

“B” type, the second most common blood type, does not do well on soy, or soba (buckwheat) common foods eaten in Japan. Fish is an important protein for B’s and the Japanese consume more fish that any country in the world. Lamb, an important protein for B’s, is not available there.

Here are some examples of blood type and personality, based on James and Peter D’Adamo’s work:

Blood Type A – Tend to be cooperative, sensitive, clever, passionate and smart. Often bottling up anxiety in order to get along with others, they may hold in their emotions until they explode. Many are tense, impatient and unable to sleep well. While they are capable of leadership positions, they may not take them because the stress is not good for their tightly wired systems. In Japan many “A”‘s are in research. They have roles in discovering more about and refining science, economics, manufacturing, etc. Their research on microflora and other areas of medicine is some of the best and most meticulous in the world. They are perfectionists to say the least. This quality shows up in their perfecting electronics like TV’s and also less expensive more efficient cars that were originally created here in the US.
Blood type A’s tend to have more sensitive constitutions. Too much stress weakens their immunity more quickly than other blood types. Low stomach acid is common among blood type A’s even from birth, so special care should be taken when eating animal proteins. Using digestive enzymes, like Assist Dairy and Protein, along with consuming fermented foods and drinks is really a must for A’s. It is not surprising to me that fermented foods like Miso and Natto play an important role in providing easily digested protein, in the Japanese Diet. They also eat raw fish which is much easier to digest than cooked.

Blood Type B – Blood type B individuals tend to be balanced: thoughtful like A’s and yet ambitious like O’s. They are empathetic, easily understanding others’ points of view, yet often hesitating to challenge or confront. Chameleon-like and flexible, they make good friends.
Peter D’Adamo found that While their immunity is strong, they are more prone to slow-growing viral infections like lupus, MS and chronic fatigue.

They may also have problems with hypoglycemia and blood sugar, especially if they eat the wrong foods.

Blood Type AB – Tend to be very charming and popular. They don’t sweat the small stuff and can be seen as spiritual and even at times a bit “flaky”. Only about 2 – 5% of the population are blood type AB. There is never a dull moment in a AB’s life, so if you find one for a friend, consider yourself lucky! Youll enjoy some exciting times together!
Like blood type A’s, AB’s react to stress poorly. They are stronger and more active than type A’s, but need to pay attention to stress levels so that they don’t compromise their immunity.

Sometimes it is difficult to be an AB. AB’s don’t like to fit in anyone else’s “boxes”. If they feel too confined, they’ll break out of that box and do things their own way. When it comes to food choices and AB must discover when they are more B-like or A-like. For example, dairy foods like milk kefir can be excellent for them or not good at all.

Blood Type O – Tend to be loners or leaders and are intuitive, focused, self-reliant and daring. They handle stress better than other blood types and have strong immune systems, a well developed physique and a physically active nature. Blood type O’s tend to have sluggish blood flow and feel better with vigorous exercise for about an hour each day.
Obviously many other factors influence your personality. I think you will find like me that these blood type theories are quite fascinating. Do your own subjective research and see if you agree or disagree.

Leaders in the United Arab Emirates aim to build a human settlement on Mars by 2117

Leaders in the United Arab Emirates aim to build a human settlement on Mars by 2117, a research project the government promises will bring benefits to generations of people.

UAE Vice President and Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan started the Mars 2117 Project on Tuesday. The goal of the century-long effort is not just to inhabit the Red Planet, but to further space science research.

“We expect future generations to reap the benefits, driven by its passion to learn to unveil a new knowledge,” Sheikh Mohammed said. “The landing of people on other planets has been a longtime dream for humans. Our aim is that the UAE will spearhead international efforts to make this dream a reality.”
Al Maktoum teased the world with futuristic renderings of the project.

— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) February 14, 2017
The government said UAE scientists will start the project and build a coalition of international scientists to “speed” it up. One of the aims of the plan is to make the research available to institutions across the globe, an effort to make the research beneficial to those on Earth as it relates to transportation, energy and food.

The first step of the project is to, “achieve scientific breakthrough to facilitate the arrival of humans to the Red Planet in the next decades.” Part of the government’s goal also is to expedite travel to and from Mars as well as establish what the settlement will look like and how people will move and eat once they arrive.

Mars volcano erupted for 2 billion years
Also at the summit, a team of UAE engineers presented a concept for a Mars city built by robots along. The showcase also featured “the expected lifestyle on Mars in terms of transport, power production and providing food, as well as infrastructure works and materials used for the construction of the city.”

The UAE isn’t new to Mars exploration. The country announced in 2015 it would send a spacecraft to Mars, which would land in 2021. UAE stated the spacecraft would be the first from the Arab world to go to Mars.

“Human ambitions have no limits,” Sheikh Mohammed said, “and whoever looks into the scientific breakthroughs in the current century believes that human abilities can realize the most important human dream.”
