GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: An Old Lady Was Alone at a Restaurant Until a Random Guy Sat Down with He

By |2019-04-25T06:20:36-05:00April 25th, 2019|

If you haven't seen this photo yet, the story behind is it pretty great . . . A guy named Jamario Howard was at a barbecue joint in Oxford, Alabama last week with two of his friends.  They all look like they're in their 20s or early 30s. And he noticed an elderly lady at another table, eating dinner by herself.  So he went over and asked if he could sit with her. Her name is Eleanor.  She told him she was alone because her husband passed away.  And the next day would have been their 60th anniversary. So at that point, Jamario invited her to come sit at HIS table with [...]

Whether you're religious or not, this is pretty cool... There's a church in Wichita that usually spends a good chunk of money promoting its Easter services each year to bring more people in.  But this year they did something different. They took all that money . . . along with other funds they'd set aside . . . and used it to pay off medical debt for 1,600 random families in Kansas. They bought up $2.2 MILLION worth of debt for pennies on the dollar.  Then they sent out letters to all 1,600 families.  And they let them know they didn't have to worry about paying [...]

There's a guy in Indianapolis named Randy Etter who's trying to be an R&B singer.  So money's tight.  And he recently found out he needed a big chunk of change to save his dog's LIFE. His pit bull Gemini ate a sock and part of a plastic bottle.  And it got lodged in his intestines.  So he needed a VERY expensive surgery that Randy couldn't afford.  It was going to cost between three and six THOUSAND dollars, and it had to happen fast. Then to make things worse, Randy got FIRED from his day job for not showing up, because he was busy [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: An Ambulance Hit a Pothole, and It Saved the Patient’s Life

By |2019-04-22T06:00:48-05:00April 22nd, 2019|

A 59-year-old guy near Omaha, Nebraska was having heart palpitations at work last week.  And an ambulance took him to a hospital. It was about a 20-minute drive.  And at one point, his heart rate was dangerously high . . . about 200 beats per minute. But luckily he's okay, because the ambulance hit a giant POTHOLE in the road.  And it jolted his heart back into a normal rhythm. It basically did what those electric paddles do when they shock your heart into rhythm.  And it's rare, but stuff like this has happened before. Back in the late '70s, the same thing happened when someone's heart [...]

A 37-year-old guy in Texas named Walter Gordy was diagnosed with lymphoma about five years ago, and beat it.  He's now cancer free. Then after his diagnosis, he wanted to see if he was predisposed to any other illnesses.  So he took a DNA test through 23andMe. Meanwhile, a good friend of his named Mark Tolson also signed up for 23andMe.  And after being friends for 12 years, they found out they're RELATED. Both of them were raised by single mothers who did artificial insemination.  And it turns out they chose the same donor.  So Mark and Walter have the same dad. Walter recently got a phone [...]

The Next Big Food Craze Might Be…Breast Milk for Adults

By |2019-04-17T07:14:20-05:00April 17th, 2019|

Well everyone, time to call it a day on milk.  It had a good run, but this is just too far. Apparently, some major companies are making a huge bet that the next big food craze could be . . . BREAST MILK for ADULTS. DowDuPont is estimating that it could become a billion-dollar market. Here's the thought process.  Breast milk contains something called human milk oligosaccharide, or HMO.  And it's great for babies because it helps fight infections and inflammation, helps brain development, and gets good bacteria to the colon. But at this point, the synthetic versions of HMO that [...]

He was using his cane, and didn't realize he was standing at the edge of the platform.  Then he stepped off the edge and fell HARD.  It took a few seconds for other people in the station to realize what happened.  Then five of them ran in to help. He managed to get back on his feet.  Then three guys grabbed his arm and yanked him back onto [...]

What Color Is Your Name? A Study Finds We Link Vowels with Colors

By |2019-04-16T08:35:10-05:00April 16th, 2019|

  A new study out of the Netherlands found that when some people hear different vowel sounds, our brains associate them with a color.  It's true.  And you can even use that to figure out what COLOR people associate with your name. Here's the breakdown . . . 1.  A sounds like red, pink, or orange. 2.  E sounds like green and orange. 3.  I sounds like green and yellow. 4.  O sounds like blue and purple. 5.  And U sounds like blue or red. So if your name is "Pete," that's a green and orange name.  If your name is [...]

This is a little above this lady's paygrade, but she stepped up . . . A woman named Ticresha Cox recently took a cashier job at a gas station near Oklahoma City.  And two weeks in, she had to save a guy's LIFE.
