How would you feel about riding on an airplane with more than a hundred of these guys? No thank you!
On September 18th, customs officers in a Paris airport seized 115 scorpions. The animals were hidden in plastic boxes and cups. They were traveling from Cameroon to the United States. Their owners said they were for medical research.
But authorities think the people transporting the scorpions really wanted to sell them on the Internet. The scorpions were of the Pandinus dictator variety. Their species is protected by law. Sorry, smugglers. These creepy-crawlies can’t go to the United States!
Thirty-eight years ago, Amanda Scarpinati was a tiny baby. She got badly burned when she fell onto a boiling steam vaporizer. She had to go to a hospital in Albany, New York. There, a young nurse named Susan Berger cared for her. As Amanda grew up, she looked often at pictures of she and the nurse. But she had no idea who the nurse was—until now.
This month, Amanda posted the photos on Facebook. Soon the photos had spread all over! Another nurse saw them. She told Amanda who Susan was. Finally, Amanda got a chance to say what she had wanted to for so long: Thank you!
Did you catch the supermoon eclipse last Sunday night? If not, don’t worry. You’ll get another chance to see one . . . in 2033.
During an eclipse, the sun, Earth, and moon are in a perfectly straight line. As the eclipse progresses and they line up, the moon gets darker and darker as Earth’s shadow falls onto it.
But the Sunday eclipse offered an extra-extraordinary view. The moon was as close to Earth as it gets. That’s what made it a “supermoon.” The eclipsing moon looked huge and red!
May they fear you while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations! — Psalm 72:5
