New Scooby Doo Movie
Aug. 21, 2014 7:18 am

Daphne is cursed in the new Scooby Doo movie.  She's devastated because she goes from a size 2 to a size 8...wait...what?  How dare the writers use a body size to denote a curse?  What were they thinking?  It's not bad enough that women have been bombarded with images that cause self-hate, now it's in a cartoon as well?  Some that have seen the movie are saying that it's a good thing because Daphne learns that she is being shallow and Fred says that she is always beautiful to him. How can that be a good thing?  It's still weight bashing and her self worth is tied into how her boyfriend feels about her.  And I still have a problem with her "curse."  I'm not a size 8, haven't been since Middle School, and I'm quite sure I never will be again.  And I think it's a very bad idea to give young girls the thought that gaining weight is a curse.  bad movie idea
Daphne's "curse"


wedding jitters
Aug. 20, 2014 7:39 am

Most people get a little bit of cold feet when it gets close to their wedding.  But one groom took it to the extreme.  He faked his own death just to get out of going to the alter.  He called pretending to be his "dad" and told his finace that "his son" had been depressed and threw himself in front of a car ending his life.  When the bride-to-be called to offer condolences to his mother, she found out that he was alive and well.  I'm thinking the bride is lucky that she found out what a jerk this guy is before they got married.  cold feet



adopting a dolphin
Aug. 19, 2014 7:34 am

To most of us, a dolphin is a dolphin, but there are differences.  So when one species adopts another, it's a rare event.  Kiwi, a bottlenose dolphin, has been seen nursing an abandoned common dolphin who has been named Pee Wee.  Kiwi lost her own calf when she became stuck in the mud.  She was rescued and 5 years later adopted Pee Wee.  adoption

A 3-year-old girl survived 11 days in the forest in Siberia thanks to her dog.  Her rescue was led by her dog as well.  He left her side two days before she was found and went back to their village.  At that point, hopes of finding her dimmed but the dog led rescuers right to her.  She's being called the miracle girl.  found


Two-headed dolphin
Aug. 14, 2014 5:22 am

A 3.2 foot two-headed dolphin carcass washed ashore in Turkey.  The man who saw it wash up was at first thinking that his eyes were playing tricks on him and then he was a little freaked out. I'm thinking "freaked out" is a good description of how I would be.  But apparently it's something that can occur in all animals including humans.  dolphin

missing flags
Aug. 6, 2014 5:19 am

A church in New Hampshire is LGBT friendly and has a rainbow flag flying proudly outside of the church.  Someone has been stealing the flags.  They disappear almost as soon as they're put up.  But Reverend Eliza Buchakjian-Tweedy simply put up another one.  She reported the incidents to police and also put out the word on social media about the thefts.  The response has been overwhelming.  The church has been receiving rainbow flags, banners, and garlands that they intend to display all over the building.  replacing flags

Cats everywhere...
Aug. 4, 2014 6:18 am

Tonawanda Island is in the middle of Niagara River near Buffalo NY.  It has become overrun by feral cats and the mess that it's creating is starting to worry local residents.  Some of the cats come from uncaring people who just abandon their pets while others are being born to strays already on the island.  One woman is trying to make a difference and clean up the cat population.  Danielle Coogan has raised money to get the adult cats spayed and neutered plus get them their vaccinations.  Kittens will be put up for adoption and the adult cats will be released back into the wild because they wouldn't make good house pets.  In the first ten days, she has caught about one cat a day.  feline catcher
