Boy With Massive Tumor Snatched From Drug City

A nine-year-old boy with a massive tumor was whisked from a gang-infested neighborhood in Mexico by US agents and taken across the border for treatment in New Mexico. The boy and his parents were snatched from the gang-infested neighborhood in Ciudad Juarez – one of the deadliest cities in the world – in an armored vehicle after members of a New Mexico Baptist church saw him near an orphanage and sought help. The parents of the child, identified only as Jose to protect his family, said the tumor on his shoulder and neck had grown so large that it affected his eyesight and could move into his heart. With no money for medical care, the family sought treatment in Ciudad Juarez and El Paso, but did not receive any help removing the tumor, which has afflicted Jose since birth. Si Budagher, pastor of First Baptist Church of Rio Rancho, New Mexico, said church members spotted the boy while doing missionary work and felt compelled to help. ‘He just came up to us and offered to carry groceries,’ Mr Budagher said. ‘The Lord put him in front of us.’ Church members only recently resumed missionary work in the border city after suspending visits over the violence between competing drug cartels which has claimed thousands of lives.” w/ photos

So What Ingredients Really Go Into A Hot Dog?

“Originally hailing from the city of Frankfurt, they were simply pork sausages served in a bun and doled out to the watching public for free during imperial coronations. Various German immigrants then claimed to have introduced the popular snack to America in the 19th century. From there, they have mutated into the processed sausage we know today. Charlie Powell from the food lobby group Sustain, said: ‘Cheap frankfurters are highly processed and have little in them that will improve your health. ‘If they are eaten on a regular basis, they cannot be good for you. They are one of the least natural foods I can think of… So just what goes into the hot dogs to make them such a target for real food campaigners?” w/ photos

Monkey Back Attack!

“This is at Randers Regnskov (Rander’s Rainforest), a zoo in Denmark. I remembered the viral video of the monkey who got mad at the guy standing with his back to the display, so I told my friend to stand with his back to the cage to see if these guys would do it. It worked a little too well, haha!” — Sam Camilli
