Weiner Loses his Lead… And Other News

Weiner loses his lead

Weiner loses his lead! Could it be because of the dick pics? Yes.

At first Anthony Weiner was able to maintain his lead in the New York City mayoral race after admitting to sexting with various women after his resignation from congress, but now it seems his support is plummeting.  According to a new poll by NBC 4 New York, The Wall Street Journal and the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn garners 25% support among Democratic primary voters compared with 16% for Weiner. The question is will Weiner now pull out of the race? And more importantly, will he ever pull his weiner out from in front of his phone? USA Today

Recife SharkShark Attack! A week after a 15-year-old girl was bitten in half by a shark along the shore of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, an 18-year-old girl was fatally bitten in Recife, on the coast of Brazil. To sum up, sharks like teenage girls. Bruna Gobbi was attacked by a bull shark while she was being rescued from drowning. The teenager and her cousin had been swimming and began to struggle in the water. Moments before the lifeguards could rescue them, a giant shark bit Gobbi, severing her leg.  Authorities are now wondering whether there should be a ban on swimming near Recife, a notorious shark zone.

Cruise MeatWell, it was cleaner than the stranded Carnival Cruise ship but the Luxury Cruise Ship, the Silver Shadow, failed to pass a sanitation inspection. The surprise inspection by the Centers for Disease Control resulted in a failing grade for the ship which is considered was of the highest end cruises around. The company said it charges passengers an average of $5,000 per week to sail. An anonymous tipster sent in photos of meat stashed in the sinks of crew members’ rooms and food trolleys hidden in hallways prompting the surprise inspection. Apparently during previous inspections crew members were asked to store unrefrigerated meat and cheese in their rooms. Still, I’d rather be on the Silver Shadow than the Costa Concordia. CNN

Cat AllergiesScientists are one step closer to discovering the cure for people who “think” they have cat allergies. British scientists have uncovered how allergic reactions to cats are triggered, raising everyone’s hopes of developing a preventative medicine. The researchers found a protein in cat dander — or dead skin cells — that interacts with a chemical in the human body to cause allergy symptoms, which can range from itching and sneezing to asthma attacks. When the dander is released – often through petting or playful cat fights – it triggers an allergic reaction ONLY IF it’s in the presence of a common environmental bacterial toxin called lipopolysaccharides, or LPS. The government definitely needs to put more funding into this! Once allergies are cured it will be cats for everybody!! BBC News

BanananannasThe secret to life is… bananas. With the recent death of a 116-year-old Japanese man, the new record-holder for the world’s oldest living man is a 112-year-old New York resident who is a self-taught musician and former coal miner. Salustiano Sanchez-Blazquez said his longevity can be attributed to eating one banana per day and his daily dose of six Anacin tablets. So I guess it’s not an apple a day keeps the doctor away – it’s a banana a day. He should have given some to his wife – she passed away from old age in 1988. CBC News
