Tonik, dog with human face: Tonik, a Shih Tzu/poodle who some say has a remarkably human-like face, is up for adoption at a shelter in Indiana. - 02-05-2013 The two-year-old, called Tonik, is looking for a new home after being rescued from a kill shelter in Kentucky, U.S. He was saved from being put down by the Homeward Bound Animal Welfare Group in Mishawaka, Indiana, which describes him as 'a very sweet boy who is trying to figure things out and enjoy people'. The centre says he is great with other dogs and is not dangerous, but should not be placed with young children because he will become too overwhelmed. It adds that he will 'need a home with lots of patience and good energy.' He has been micro-chipped, groomed and given a clean bill of health. His adoption donation is $250 and will need to be collected from the centre as they do not ship their animals.
BEWARE: watching this...
Jillian Thomas, 8, suffered four puncture wounds after dolphin bites her hand at SeaWorld Orlando.
Jalonta Freeman of Arlington, Texas was approached by a stranger at a gas station, selling what he claimed to be a brand new $800 iPad, for just $200. Freeman and her family did not want to miss out on an offer they thought seemed great, so they gave him cash for the tablet, and the man quickly drove away. When the package was finally opened, the Freeman family discovered the elaborately wrapped "iPad" was actually just a mirror about the size of a tablet. Freeman said she felt stupid, but learned a valuable lesson, and offered this advice, "Don't buy nothing on the streets from nobody." An Arlington police spokesperson said that crimes of this kind always increase leading up to Christmas. Last year, incidents similar to this were reported in several states.
Finally - June 21, 2012 LeBron James gets his first championship as Heat win NBA Finals. - 07-21-12 These used to be the moments that suffocated LeBron James. End of a game, the world watching, everyone expecting greatness. A TV camera would catch James sitting on the bench, gnawing on his fingernails during a timeout. He'd take the court, and the ball -- and the game -- would find their way into his large hands. Too often, he'd give them both to a teammate. The pressure, the responsibility to live up to his enormous talent, was too much for him to shoulder. No longer is James haunted by his demons. He embraces these moments now, and as the final seconds ticked off the clock late Thursday, James was finally free of the burden he had carried for so long. Finally, the world could call him a champion. LeBron James wrapped up his first NBA title. (AP) James had walked off the court a few minutes earlier, the Miami Heat's 121-106 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder long since secure. He dominated these NBA Finals, and he saved his best for last with a 26-point, 13-assist, 11-rebound triple-double performance. James hugged his teammates and coaches, screamed and waved his arms. No more doubts. He owned his elusive title. "It's about damn time," James said after accepting the Finals MVP trophy from Bill Russell. "It's about damn time." He had come into this with people questioning whether Kevin Durant had surpassed him as the game's greatest player, with the Heat cast in the unfamiliar role of underdogs. Oklahoma City's victory in Game 1 fanned those sentiments. It turned out to be the only jolt the Heat needed. James took hold of this series in Game 2 and he never let go. He was the league's best player this season, and he was the greatest player on the floor in these Finals. The Thunder never had an answer for him. Not Durant, not anyone. From the moment James threw down a thunderous dunk to open Thursday night, the message was clear: No more waiting. This night, this season, belonged to him. "My dream has become a reality now," James said, "and it's the best feeling I ever had." Throughout this postseason, James has sustained his aggressiveness like never before. He's taken the ball into the post and attacked from different angles. No floating this year. He unleashed an epic 45-point performance with the Heat facing elimination against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, and he dominated the Thunder in this series. James always needed a championship to validate his greatness. It probably won't change everyone's perception of him, but it will help, as will the way in which James has carried himself this season. He's displayed a level of humility and openness he'd rarely shown. A year ago James walked out of this same arena defeated and mocked. As the roar fell down upon him late Thursday, he unfurled his long arms and unburdened himself of all that pressure, all that unfulfilled promise. He was a champion, at last
