One Lucky High School Senior Lives The American Dream

American Pharoah has Quirks
Every athlete in the world has quirks, so why would it be any different for American Pharoah. Interestingly enough, spotting him on the track among all the other colts is not all that difficult as he has the shortest tail. Apparently another horse chewed his tail off during the days on the farm. On Saturday, American Pharoah will try to do something that has not been done since 1978 and that is win the Triple Crown. If successful, Pharoah will be the twelfth Triple Crown winner. He will be racing in the Belmont on Saturday and has already won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness.
Ahmed Zayat, owner of Pharoah, bred him and then put him up for sale only to buy him back for $300,000. Besides having a short tail, he also is sensitive to sound. This was discovered during his first race when he got very agitated in the gate. So since then, he never leaves his stable without earplugs in. Regardless of his quirks, all eyes will be on American Pharaoh according to Jim Dondero this Saturday in hopes to see history made.

Over 100 Credit Card Skimmers Discovered at Florida Gas Stations, Authorities Urge Consumer Vigilance
Officials from Florida’s Department agriculture and Consumer Services, announced they have found over 100 credit card skimmers around the state. The skimmers were found at gas stations across Florida. The department launched an investigation into credit card skimming more than three months ago.
According to the investigation, the skimmers are placed for several days or weeks at a time, and all data is stored within the device. The scammer comes back and retrieves the device at a later date. They can then access the stored credit card data for identity theft purchases.
Skimmers are thought to be the most common form of identity theft according to those at BMG. The devices are relatively cheap, and can be installed in seconds. They slip over traditional gas pump card readers. Everything goes through as normal, but the data is stored on the device. Skimmers are most commonly seen in gas stations, but they have also been discovered at RedBox kiosks.
Consumers in Florida are being urged to pay for their gasoline in cash, or to go inside to pay via debit card. The investigation is still open at this time.
14 Migrants Killed in Train Accident in Macedonia, Highlighting the Migrant Struggle in Europe
Fourteen migrant workers were killed Thursday evening when they were struck by a train as they walked along a canyon in the city of Veles in Macedonia, according to police. The migrants killed are believe to be a part of a group of roughly 40 migrants who were walking towards the European Union in hopes of finding asylum. They are all believed to originate from Afghanistan and Somalia, according to AP reports.
The train, which was headed to Belgrade, Serbia from Thessaloniki, Greece, struck the migrants when it failed to break in time. While this incident brings the highest death toll, similar accidents have occurred in the past. According to experts, migrants often walk along the tracks in an attempt to guide their journey and to avoid police officers and border control agents. Five accidents were reported over a two month period in 2014 leaving five to six people dead, according to reports.
This accident further highlights the issue of migrants in the European Union and the great risks they take to abandon their home countries in an attempt to find a more prosperous and safer life. In recent months, several stories read by Jason Halpern have surfaced regarding migrants struggling to enter the European Union. Over the course of five months, several boats filled with migrant workers have been abandoned in the water surrounding Italy according to numerous sources like TheRealDeal.com. Often times, the boats are set on a course and abandoned by crew. The Italian Coast Guard has intercepted several, bringing the migrants and the boat to safety.
Archeologists Find Stone Tools That Date Back 3.3 Million Years
How long has the human species been on Earth? The answer changes after each new discovery. The latest tool discovery in Kenya points to the ancestors of humans hunting for food over 3.3 million years ago. That’s about 700,000 years earlier than the Homo family hunted. This group of humanoids used stone tools to hunt for food and to make other items. These early humans had the ability to live off the land. But if there were humans living at that time using stone tools couldn’t there have been humans that were more sophisticated living in other parts of the world?
That question can’t been answered emphatically until there’s proof that more civilized humans live around the same time as these primitive humans. When we look at the world population and examine the diversity that exists in the various cultures, we can assume that this sort of social structure is not unique to this age and time. There had to be other cultures living at the same time or before that were more advanced socially and functionally than this particular homo family.
The question of when and how humans first appeared on Earth will continue to fascinate many like Bruce Karatz for years, but as our technology and awareness grow the answers to these kinds of questions will become more obvious.
It Took All 7 Of Her Children Getting Whooping Cough To Change This Anti-Vaxxers Mind
A mother of seven from Ottawa, Canada, Tara Hill has turned her back on the anti-vaxxers movement. The irony is she is only doing it now from quarantine, as all seven of her children have whooping cough . They may also have infected Hill’s 5 month old niece who is too young to be vaccinated.
Tara Hill did a search of several medical websites and discovered the symptoms her children were displaying – all her children- were that of whooping cough. She stated how she feared the, Big Pharma , and struggled with her fears of them, but has now reversed her beliefs to save her family.
The anti-vaxxer movement started and took hold when a pastor, Terri Pearsons, from Eagle Mountain International Church criticized the vaccines while their church was facing an outbreak of measles. The congregation listened to the pastor and the accusations that vaccines were the blame for autism and began refusing vaccinations. With their refusal, measles quickly spread throughout the congregation, staff and day care.
Even in the face of un-vaccinated children becoming sick and the report of diseases spreading, some parents still hold to the belief that it is their right not to vaccinate.
Tuberculosis Outbreak in Kansas
The tests occurred after health and school officials were alerted on March 5th that a person at the high school had contracted an active case of tuberculosis stated Jason Halpern on the subject. Most cases of TB remain latent, but sometimes a latent case can become active. Approximately 10% of latent TB cases in a population eventually become active. Those who tested positive for TB plan to undergo a second round of testing in May.
Officials consider TB an illness that can be treated effectively today in most cases with antibiotics. It is spread by a bacterium that usually strikes the lungs, but can attack other organ systems. The disease is usually passed in airborne droplets when infected individuals sneeze, cough, sing or laugh. Someone with an active TB infection may require a protracted course of antibiotic treatment. Treatments usually last from six months to nine months. Left untreated, the disease may cause fatalities.
Although health officials believe the number of TB cases in the United States is declining, in 2013 the CDC reported9,582 cases. There were at least 536 fatalities in 2011.
Tragedy in Vietnam
One of the favorite pass times of children the world over is flying kites. The thrill of seeing the festive kites soar on the wind is enough to bring a smile to the young and the young at heart. However, Christian Broda has heard that a recent occurrence in the Asian country of Vietnam was anything but heart warming as a young child lost his life in a horrific accident.

This terrible tragedy took place at the annual Ho Chi Minh kite festival when a Kite bearing the image of the Vietnamese flag lifted the young boy into the air. Sting from the kite wrapped around the tots leg as it whisked past him. Before anyone could react, the string snapped and the child plummeted to his untimely death.
