Odd news from around the world

Australian baby delivered from dead car crash victim: “A BOY has been charged with manslaughter after a pregnant woman was killed in a high speed crash with a stolen car in Hobart, police say. The 15-year-old who cannot be identified for legal reasons was also been charged with motor vehicle stealing, police said. A 32-week-term baby was delivered alive from the woman who died in the collision about 1am today in central Hobart. “At this stage the baby is alive,” police Commander Glenn Frame told reporters this morning. The woman, 24, died as a result of the crash and her unborn child was later delivered at the Royal Hobart Hospital, police said. Police said her two-year-old son was also in the car and received only minor injuries. The woman was returning home after dropping her partner to work at a bakery.”

Crazy cyclist: “MOTORISTS were left stunned when a cyclist rode past them on a busy Sydney street with a young boy desperately clinging to his back – with neither wearing a helmet. The man was snapped riding through peak hour traffic at about 6pm on Tuesday with shopping bags in one hand and the boy with his arms tightly wrapped around his neck. Police who were shown the photo of the man were shocked to see such blatant disregard for the child’s safety. She said traffic in the area was heavy and people are often breaking road rules in the area making it even more dangerous for the rider and his young passenger. “It’s so dangerous, especially in that part of the city and during peak hour when cars around me are running red lights,” she said.

Garlic ‘reverses build-up of deadly plaque that clogs arteries and triggers heart attacks’: “Aged garlic extract reduces dangerous plaque buildup in arteries, according to the study from Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. That helps prevent the progression of heart disease – which is the leading cause of death worldwide. The study involved 55 patients between the ages of 40 and 75, each of whom were diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. The screenings were conducted through cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA), an imaging technology that measures deposits and build up in arteries. After being evaluated, the participants were either given a placebo or a dose of 2,400 milligrams of aged garlic extract each day. One year later, a follow-up screening was conducted. The study determined those who had taken aged garlic extract had slowed the total plaque accumulation by 80 per cent”

Pink for girls?: “A 26-year-old bather found her skin turned bright pink for three days after she mistook luxury bath oils from Lush for soap and rubbed them all over herself. Abi Shenton, of Bournemouth, Dorset, used the products called Razzle Dazzle which are supposed to be diluted in water – but she covered her body with them by mistake. She tweeted Lush to ask for help, before a friend who works for the cosmetics retailer helped her to remove the stain with lemon juice, olive oil and a gritty face wash. A description of the £2 oils on the Lush website says: ‘What if your hinges all are rusting? Razzle Dazzle ’em with splendiferous raspberry ripples, bergamot and juicy Persian lime!’ And a Lush spokesman told MailOnline today: ‘We are as red in the face as Abi at the idea that one of our bath melts has been mistaken for a soap.’

Bungling British bureaucrats announce new English test for migrants… but spell ‘language’ WRONGLY: “Home Office officials bungled the announcement of David Cameron’s new English test for migrants policy after they misspelled ‘language’, it was revealed today. The embarrassing memo on the department’s website was headed ‘New English langauge (sic) test for family route migrants’. David Cameron came under attack this week for ‘threatening’ Muslim wives who do not learn English with being removed from the UK – and the test is a product of that. Broadcaster Anita Anand wrote on Twitter: ‘Beyond parody – Home Office can’t spell ‘language’ in their note to migrants who have been told to learn English.’ Neil Ainger ‏wrote: ‘If migrants fail this they risk deportation. So who exactly from the Home Office are we deporting?’ The new rule affects non-European partners and parents of British citizens or people settled in the UK.”
