This four-legged hero is being praised for saving hundred of animals from the continual and unforgiving Australian wildfires.
Stephen Hill arrived at the farm where he works in Corryong, Victoria, at four in the morning when he quickly realized the blazes were approaching the town. He then grabbed his herd dog Patsy and rushed to the barn where hundreds of sheep were gathered.
The 6-year-old shepherd mix quickly got to work helping wrangle the farm’s livestock away from the flames and into another barn for safety.
All but just six of the 220 sheep survived thanks to Patsy’s help and guidance — especially as it was in the dark.
“If you haven’t got a good dog, you can’t do so much with the sheep,” Hill shared with NBC News. “They’re really difficult to move in any way, shape or form unless you have a good dog.”
“It’s unbelievable and it’s only going to get worse. That’s why we put Patsy’s story out there,” Cath added. “People need something positive.”
A young 23-year-old began to feel very ill in the summer of 2016 after wrapping up a shift at a German metal-fitting company and took himself to the hospital when he could not stop vomiting and barely could stand up.
Then, at age 26, he fell into a coma and suffered severe brain damage but the cause was identified much later as mercury poisoning.
Doctors then realized that the man had been ingesting lead acetate and mercury for years but no one was sure how he could come in contact with the toxin. That is, until two other co-workers fell ill in the exact same way.
The case came together in 2018 after one colleague at the company, ARI Armaturen, noticed a white powder on the bread during his lunch break.
Later, video surveillance were installed at the workplace which captured the suspect, Klaus O, 57, placing the substance on his colleagues’ sandwiches.
Klaus had been working at the factory for 38 years and was convicted of attempted murder as well as bodily injury in march in three cases after two other colleagues suffered kidney damage.
“When I first moved to the States, I had to sell everything that I owned: my car, my computer, my apartment, everything. And I came with one suitcase, a doona [duvet] and a pillow. And I actually lived on… well I paid for a furnished apartment so I had somewhere to stay, but I lived on $60 a week, which is not much. I’d go to this supermarket called Trader Joe’s and get corn chips and stuff and I was surviving on corn chips and guacamole.”
In the famous words of Chris Brown, LOOK AT ME NOW!
The Japanese billionaire, Yusaku Maezawa, named by Elon Musk as the first passenger that Space X will send to the moon is coincidentally looking for a life partner he can give the moon too — I mean, travel to the moon with.
The 44-year-old entrepreneur will be the first civilian passenger to take a journey around the Earth’s only natural satellite in 2023 on SpaceX’s Starship rocket.
In addition to being the first ever commercial trip, Maezawa’s journey will also be the first lunar journey any human has made since 1972.
And what better way to celebrate this journey than with a dating contest!
On his site, the billionaire explains his current plight along with his (hopeful) plans for the future.
“As feelings of loneliness and emptiness slowly begin to surge upon me, there’s one thing that I think about: Continuing to love one woman. I want to find a ‘life partner’. With that future partner of mine, I want to shout our love and world peace from outer space.”
Regardless if you are his future space-loving-Stepford-wife or not, that date would be out of this world!

Four Ring employees were fired after the company found they had accessed customers footage without warrant.
The news came in a letter that Amazon’s vice president of public policy, Brian Huseman, wrote in response to a number of senators who wrote to Ring’s parent company to discuss safety concerns about the device in November 2019.
“Over the last four years, Ring has received four complaints or inquiries regarding a team member’s access to Ring video data,” Huseman revealed in a response letter, dated Jan. 6. “Although each of the individuals involved in these incidents was authorized to view video data, the attempted access to that data exceeded what was necessary for their job functions.”
The letter went on to say that once it learned of the alleged conduct, it began an investigation and fired the individuals who were found to have violated company policy.
In addition, they have since taken “multiple actions” to limit the number of employees who are able to access customer videos.
Just last fall, the chain got rid of the menu item but after receiving over 1,000 complaints on social media in just a few short week, the team at Panera along with Phyllis Smith (The Office star) brought it back.
