Odd news from around the world
Feisty Indian woman: “A woman has been jailed for life for killing her husband when he refused to have sex with her, it has been reported. Vimla Vaghela, 54, flew into a rage and accused her husband Narsinh of having an affair when he turned down sex at their home in Ahmedabad, India. She picked up a stick and beat him around the head and he died of multiple injuries after the attack in November 2013. Afterwards, Vaghela locked her house and went to the nearby Sardarnagar police station to tell officers about her husband’s death. According to the Times of India, she apparently tried to claim he had killed him in self-defence. But she was later charged with murder. As well as being jailed for life, she was fined 2,000 rupees (£20)”
Poor doggie!: “Deputies in Fort Pierce in St. Lucie County were out serving papers at nearby homes when they heard the dog whimpering in the distance. Upon following the sounds to determine the source, it was found that a puppy had become stuck, neck deep, in a collapsed septic drain. Thankfully, the officers were able to free the animal which would have surely died sooner or later. Scared and exhausted, the little dog was given several baths to clean him, before police began to stick up fliers around neighborhood in the hope they might be able to track down the original owner. In the end, nobody came forward to claim the cute canine and so one of the hero deputies decided to adopt the pooch for himself. Humane Society staff in St. Lucie neutered the puppy and gave him vaccinations. After all that was done, the puppy was clean, able to walk again and given a clean bill of health.
A polite Google search!!: “A teaching assistant has revealed his grandmother’s endearing Google search after he came across it while using her laptop. Ben John, 25, was left in hysterics when he discovered what 85-year-old May Ashworth had typed and took to Twitter to share it with his followers. In his tweet he wrote: ‘Omg opened my Nan’s laptop and when she’s googled something she’s put ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. I can’t’ – along with the cry laughing emojis. Ben accompanied his tweet with a screen shot of his grandmother’s Google search which read: ‘Please translate these roman numerals mcmxcviii thank you.’ Many Twitter users were overcome by his grandmother’s politeness, leaving messages of support in praise of May. To which Ben replied: It’s too much isn’t it! I asked her about it and she just thought it was the norm. Lauren added: ‘One of the most British things I’ve ever seen. Bless her.’
A REALLY urban fox: “Finding himself in surroundings unfamiliar even to his well-travelled kind, this fox looked anything but fantastic as he was caught red-pawed in a terrified woman’s bed. As intruder turned to face shocked homeowner, the woman found herself so scared of the unwelcome creature that she called police. Fortunately, the boys in blue were nearby and shot to the woman’s rescue, carefully ushering the fox out of the premises by shutting one door of the house at a time in an exercise requiring military precision. It is believed the animal had wandered into the woman’s home in Wembley through an open door, before sitting down in the middle of the bed. And just to allay any fears about the possible dangers of trespassing vulpines, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police added: ‘Frightened animal and no cause of concern to the public.’ Fox sightings are becoming more familiar in urban areas as the usually-nocturnal animals are forced away from the countryside to look for food”
Largest diamond discovered in more than a century to go on display in London: “The largest diamond discovered in more than a century is to go on display in London ahead of a record-breaking £50 MILLION sale. The diamond, named Lesedi la Rona, is three billion years old, is a staggering 1,109 carats and the size of a tennis ball. It was uncovered by Lucara Diamond Corp at its Karowe mine in Botswana in November last year in what was described as a ‘once in a lifetime discovery’. The gem, which is only beaten in size by the diamond now found in the Crown Jewels, is to go on display at Sotheby’s Bond Street headquarters in London from Saturday. Today it was shown off by model Charlene Bonnithon. Nothing of the size and quality of the Lesedi la Rona, which translates as ‘our light’ in the Tswana language, has been been found in more than 100 years”
