THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Pet cats infect humans with TB for first time: “In the first ever recorded cat-to-human transmission, two people in England have contracted tuberculosis from pet cats thought to have ventured into badger setts. Both people were responding to treatment. Veterinarians believe domestic cats could be catching the disease by venturing into badger setts or from rodents that have been in badger setts. According to PHE, transmission of the bacteria from infected animals to humans can occur by inhaling or ingesting bacteria shed by the animal or through contamination of unprotected cuts in the skin while handling infected animals or their carcasses. However, PHE said it believed the risk of transmission from cats to humans was “very low”. Professor Danielle Gunn-Moore, a researcher in feline medicine who has been studying the presence of TB in cats, warned that people had become complacent about watching for the warning signs of the disease because there have been relatively few cases in recent years.”

Pope Francis accepts resignation of ‘bling bishop’: “Vatican City: Pope Francis has formally accepted the resignation of Germany’s controversial bishop of Limburg, the Vatican says. Franz-Peter Terbartz-van Elst, nicknamed the “bling bishop” by the international media, had been under fire for his luxury lifestyle and was indefinitely relieved of his clerical duties by Francis last year. The Roman Catholic bishop had faced outrage over an ostentatious building project at his official residence, which included a museum, conference halls, a chapel and private apartments, in the ancient town of Limburg in central Hesse state. The project was initially valued at €5.5 million euro ($8.4 million) but the cost ballooned to €31 million ($47 million), including a €783,000 ($1.2 million) garden and a €15,000 ($22,800) bathtub – using the revenue from a religious tax in Germany.”

Could taking paracetamol (Tylenol) during pregnancy harm your baby?: “A study showed that children who had been exposed to paracetamol for more than 28 days before they were born had poorer motor skills, worse communication skills and more behavioural problems by the age of three. The survey of more than 3,000 siblings showed the same trend was seen with paracetamol taken for less than 28 days, but this trend was weaker. Tests using ibuprofen showed no long-term effects on the child. The Norwegian Institute of Public Health looked into the possible effects of the drug which is the most commonly used medicine in pregnancy. The study examined data from the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study to investigate the effect of paracetamol during pregnancy on development, behaviour and temperament at three years of age. By comparing children who were exposed to paracetamol during pregnancy with unexposed siblings of the same sex, researchers could control for a variety of genetic and environmental factors”

Do it for Denmark! Hilarious video calls on couples to travel and have more sex to boost the country’s population: “Couples in Denmark are being encouraged to travel to help boost the country’s falling birth rate in a hilarious new advert. The Do It For Denmark! clip explains how getting away from it all boosts men and woman's libidos – with a therapist claiming nearly half of couples have more sex when on holiday. And the tongue-in-cheek video says 10 per cent of all Danish children are conceived while abroad – with the producers Spies Travel offering a free holiday to anyone who conceives on one of its ‘ovulation discount’ trips. ‘The birth rate is at a 27-year low, and there are not enough children being born to support the ageing population."

A crashed plane that was not as it seemed: “Emergency services in the Canary Islands have been ridiculed after mistaking a shipping vessel in the sea for a crashed plane. The services tweeted at 3.01pm that a plane had landed in the water two miles off the coast of Jinamar in Gran Canaria. Shortly afterwards, international news agency Reuters reported the official announcement, with the news then featuring on the BBC, Sky News and other news outlets. At 3.09pm, the service’s Twitter account announced the mistake. Shortly afterwards, Reuters reported that a ‘big tugboat pulling a ship’ had been mistaken for an aeroplane by the services. In English, the first tweet, at 3.01pm, read: ‘Canaries air control has confirmed that a plane has fallen into the sea two miles off the coast of Gran Canaria near Jinamar. The number of passengers is not known.'”
