Odd news from around the world

What makes us trust a face? It’s in the high eyebrows and prominent cheekbones: “People decide how trustworthy strangers are within the blink of an eye, psychologists have found, and it is all down to the shape of their face. We tend to judge someone with high eyebrows and prominent cheekbones to be more honest, while we are less likely to trust someone with a furrowed brow and sunken cheeks, researchers suggest. There is no evidence, however, that facial features demonstrate how honest someone really is– simply that they may be perceived to be trustworthy or untrustworthy depending on their looks. Applying the findings to public figures, the Mail found that trusted individuals such as newsreader Fiona Bruce and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby indeed have high cheekbones and eyebrows.”

Stuck cow: “Separated from the rest of its herd, a stranded cow appears resigned to the idea that it has nowhere else to go, after becoming stuck climbing over a crash barrier. Fortunately for this adventurous calf however, help was on its way after Jack Weigner spotted it while driving near Chochis in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. ‘When I went over to help it, it suddenly acted scared and tried to get off. ‘It flailed around a bit before realising forward was not its only option and tried backing off the rail. ‘Once it did that it was able to get free and tumbled down the hill behind the rail, before picking itself up and joining the rest of the herd.’

Britain’s ‘condom king’ of 100 years ago: “An amateur historian researching her family history discovered a 100-year-old secret – her grandfather was Britain’s ‘condom king’. Thea Hartley, 64, found that her grandfather Tommy Horton invented a range reusable condoms – and that his made-to-measure, washable products were created from car-tyre rubber. Mr Horton had the idea to leave his job as a greengrocer and set up a condom factory in Methyr Tydfil, South Wales, in 1912 after spotting a gap in the market. His customers would get measured by their doctor and a washable condom would be made to fit. Mrs Hartley said: ‘My grandad was known as the French Letter King – it was he who invented condoms with a nipple on the end. ‘He made his fortune making condoms from the same rubber used to make Dunlop tyres. The entrepreneur launched the Beatall Novelty Co in 1912 – and went on to produce thousands of condoms. They came in small, medium and large – but retired university lecturer Mrs Hartley said that no one would ever buy a small one.”

Outrage after 2,500-year-old warrior statues are given ‘terrible’ pink feather boa and leopard print thong makeover: “With their thick beards, stern warrior-like features and sculpted torsos, they are models of manliness. But now the 2,500-year old Riace Bronzes have lost a little of their masculine dignity- after they were dressed up in a pink feather boa and a leopard print thong. But their exhibition in a museum in Southern Italy has proved divisive after a photographer dressed the towering and life-like statues in a white tulle veil, fuchsia boa and leopard print underwear. French photographer Gerald Bruneau, a protegee of Andy Warhol, said the provocative gesture was a jokey comment on the gay marriage debate. He said: ‘Down in the south of Italy the men are very macho and conservative and are very upset by the idea of gay marriage. But the ancient Greeks had no problem with homosexuality.’ Simonetta Binomi, head of Reggio Calabria’s National Archaeological Museum, said the photos were ‘terrible’ and ‘in bad taste’.”

Hand transplant man plays piano: “Richard Mangino was a typical married father-of-three who had worked most of his life at Logan International Airport in Boston as a ground crew director. But in 2002 – aged 55 – after developing kidney stones, he contracted sepsis, a terrible blood stream infection that doctors said would cause his four limbs to decay and inevitably fall off. As his hands turned black, the passionate musician from Revere made the decision to have a quadruple amputation…. and then he read that Brigham and Women’s Hospital had performed numerous face transplants… his case was extensively reviewed and, noting Mangino’s indefatigable spirit, the hospital decided to make an exception – they would give him new hands. The brain actually comes to the consider the new limbs as its own, doctors said. Life since the surgery has become relatively ‘normal’ for Mangino, who has not only been able to play the piano again, but achieve his dream of playing with his grandchildren.
