Young Family Lost Everything, All Because Of One Facebook Post

In the UK, a young couple named Mark and Becky wanted to engage a moving service when they finally purchased an ideal home.

They used Facebook to scout for one, and the company seemed foolproof at first, with no loopholes.

Arranging the move was a breeze – all it took was a few emails and 2 men arrived to the couple’s previous residence.

Everything was moved out and onto the truck within 45 minutes.

At first, the couple were impressed by the professionalism the moving company shown – until they arrived at their new house.

None of their possessions were there – except the TV the couple brought along. No furniture, utensils or valuables – all of them were stolen.

It only took a single Facebook post to change this family’s lives – beware of fraud companies online!

Doctors Can Barely Contain Excitement Over Birth That Happens Only Once Every 480 Years

Doctors Can Barely Contain Excitement Over Birth That Happens Only Once Every 480 Years

Even though twins can run in the family, it is always a surprise when they make an appearance in this world. Sometimes, as a couple recently found out, the phenomenon of twins can actually be doubled! Alexandra Kinova and her partner Antonin Kroscen were just such a lucky pair. Alexandra was only 23 when she got pregnant with her beloved partner. Both sides of the family actually had twins in their history, but there was only a slight hope that her nascent pregnancy would produce two lovely near-perfect matches as children.

All they could do was cross their fingers and hope. As it turned out, they were already fated to have more than just two!

The pair had already shared one child together when the doctor announced that Alexandra should be having twins!  What a surprise! Their wish really had come true.

After a couple weeks of excitement building towards the birth, the doctor informed the young couple that in fact, Alexandra was not expecting two kids – she was expecting four!

Such a shock is almost unimaginable for some ladies. Is it possible for four little fetuses to develop into little human beings in one stomach? It is an extremely care occurrence, but as Alexandra found out it does surely happen.

But what happened next they could never have imagined in a million years.

The doctor had the couple back in for another check-up and found Alexandra was actually expecting five kids in one birth! He found another head!

“When we finally found a fifth head, I started to cry,” said Alexandra about the news.

Her chances of actually performing a natural birth at this point were one in seven million.

Knowing what it means to be a strong mother, Alexandra was adamant she wanted to breastfeed them as much as possible. She admitted that artificial nutrients will have to play a role, but only what she could not produce herself.

The hospital was duly prepared for the big day when it arrived. They had close to 40 doctors, nurses, and staff on-site to ensure all five babies could be taken care of.

In a surprising twist of fate, the husband was actually almost late for the birth because of late trains. ” I was crying all the way since a feared I would not manage it,” he said afterward. In the end, he made it on time which was an appropriate omen for what was to come.

The head of neonatal care at the hospital said the birth went smoothly and nothing surprising was noted. Alexandra gave birth to four boys and one girl all in the same session – truly a feat of heroic proportions.

It was a historic day for more than just the family. It was the first time in their native Czech Republic that quintuplets had been recorded. What a momentous occasion!

“In our country (birth) statistics have been recorded since 1949 and there’s no mention of quintuplets. In the Czech Republic quintuplets are born on average once every 480 years,” doctor Alena Mechurova said.

As for the health of the kids and Alexandra: both were put into intensive care to help with the recovery. Doctors estimated that all five kids will grow up to be healthy.

 

Toys ‘R’ Us Doll Sparks Enormous Controversy; Do You See It? Take A Closer Look (Photo)

There is an anatomically correct baby doll for males that has sparked controversy.

The doll is a You & Me Mommy Change My Diaper Doll, and it is sold at Toys “R” Us – both online and in stores.

The package doesn’t indicate that it is anatomically correct, neither does the company website so you can imagine how shocked the shoppers were!

Everyone is used to dolls having no genitalia at all. The first doll to be anatomically correct hit shelves in 1976 and it was an Archie Bunker’s Grandson Joey Stivic doll.

A few of those may still be lurking on eBay.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with the doll – but the package should indicate that it is detailed.

So that way any parent who finds it offensive doesn’t have to buy it.

Children are going to learn about their bodies at some point, why not at home?

Mom Warns Of Dangerous New Playground Challenge That Nearly Cost Her Son Everything

This is why there are so many challenges that tweens and teens do and these can include crazy and harmful stunts. There are so many pranks featured on YouTube that can encourage them to try. Peer pressure is what makes them do these terrible pranks and one of them is the “Roundabout Of Death.”

You would not be able to spin that fast on a merry-go-round on your own so to give the challenge it’s dangerous effect, the motorcycle comes in to help.

Tyler Broome is an 11-year-old boy and was hanging out at the park with a friend when he was pushed to give this YouTube stunt a try. According to his mom Dawn Hollingworth, Tyler and his friend were approached by a group of older teenagers who were also Tyler’s friends and made him do the stunt. Someone was recording this Tyler’s stunt and this disturbing footage is now going viral.

It can be seen that Tyler passed out during the stunt but the teenagers kept going and did not notice the danger of what they were doing. They kept revving up the engine that caused Tyler to spin at a harmfully high rate of speed. Tyler passed out and fell off the merry-go-round.

He was left for a long time on the merry-go-round which caused his horrifying injuries. According to his doctors, these injuries were similar to what they have witnessed with fighter pilots from the extreme levels of gravitational force.

These teenagers left Tyler alone in the park, critically wounded. Fluid and blood pumped all around his brain which damaged his vision and caused his eyes to bulge out. He was rushed to the best hospital, the Queens Medical Centre to treat his injuries but the doctors had no idea how to treat Tyler at first.

She said, “His injuries were so rare the staff have never witnessed such injuries and had to research it before they could treat him. ” What they knew is that they need to alleviate the fluid that is pressing on his brain.

Like any mother would feel, Dawn had harsh words for the teenagers who pulled this prank and almost cost her son’s life. She also thanks to the kid whom she only knew as “Liam” called the ambulance to help Tyler. She also expressed her gratitude to the three individuals who came forward and stand as witnesses to what happened to her son.

Dawn also warns these teenagers who called themselves “friends” who just laughed when Tyler passed out and left him unconscious in the park. She said that she is already working with the police to make them pay for their actions.

For now, Tyler is at risk of suffering a stroke if the swelling in his head does not subside. Dawn decided to share the video of his son’s accident hoping that this can raise awareness to other parents out there. She said that she could’ve easily lost her son that night. She encourages them to speak with their kids and warn them about the repercussions of this prank.

Barber Has No Clue He Is Being Filmed When He Walks Outside, Now This Video Has Made Him Famous

Barber Has No Clue He Is Being Filmed When He Walks Outside, Now This Video Has Made Him Famous

Individuals who are tied in their wheelchair sometimes can’t do things that other people do. This is because some shops do not have those wheelchair-friendly doors and this has become of the main problems that this man is having when he went to get a haircut. Instead of turning his back on the client, a barber went an extra mile to give the man the service that he needs.

A 34-years-old hairstylist Victor Burgos from Webster has been working at Joe’s Upscale Barbershop for the last 3 ½ years. Their barbershop is situated in an older building that does not have a wheelchair ramp. He was just finishing up a weekend appointment when he noticed a man outside the shop.

“I saw a gentleman on a wheelchair. He’s kinda going back and forth wasn’t sure if he was trying to get my attention, or if he was lost,” Burgos shared during his interview with Inside Edition.

A few moments later, the shop’s phone rang and somebody is inquiring if they are accepting walk-ins. Burgos immediately knew that the man outside is the one he’s talking over the phone at that moment. His name is David Hamilton and because of his motorized wheelchair, he is not able to get inside the barbershop.

Burgos immediately ran out with two other barbers to see if they can get him inside the shop but they soon realized that it would be impossible to lift his wheelchair up the steps.

Burgos said, “We weren’t going to be able to get this heavy-duty thing in here.” What he did next was the reason why he is now going viral!

He took his cordless barber clippers, trimmers, shavers, and sheers, straight blade, comb, basically everything that he would need to give this man the same haircut that he’d get if he came inside the barbershop. Instead of wheeling him to the back of the building to get him inside, Burgos decided to cut the man’s hair right in front of the shop.

This is to show others that he is as proud to cut this man’s hair like what he would feel with his other clients.

Burgos shared that Hamilton definitely needed a haircut and it looked like he hadn’t had one in about a month. The man’s hair was pretty shaggy and he knows that it would feel good to get that wait out of his head. He said, “I could tell that he’s never had a good experience. I could tell without even asking him, and I just wanted to change it for him.”

Burgos was photographed giving a man on a wheelchair a haircut in front of the shop. He went viral but he said, “It’s about making sure everyone gets a proper grooming.”

Hamilton was so satisfied and happy with his experience that he even sent his aide to get a haircut with Burgos a few days later. Ever since the photo went viral on Facebook, his community members were helping organize efforts to help the barbershop get a ramp.

Until this dream turns into a reality, Burgos said that he is happy to take any appointment and give a man a haircut even if they have to do in the sidewalks.

 

Everyone Thought Little Girl Big Eyes Were Adorable Until They Learn Why They Are So Big

Everyone Thought Little Girl Big Eyes Were Adorable Until They Learn Why They Are So Big

‘Doll Eyes’ is becoming a trend in the fashion world these days. This is why when people saw a picture of an almost 2-years-old girl with unusually big eyes, they were wondering how she got to look like a Disney princess. Little did they know that her beautiful eyes that’s been warming hearts are due to a rare medical condition.

Karina Martinez’s daughter, Mehlani, often received compliments because of her adorable, large eyes. What these strangers didn’t know is that Mehlani was diagnosed with a rare eye condition when she was just a week old. Her condition is called Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome.

Everytime were out & a stranger compliments on how big & beautiful her eyes are, I have a mental debate on whether or not I should mention her defect. I decide no, smile & say thank you. I’m always left with a weird feeling. I just pray she’ll always know how beautiful she is. pic.twitter.com/JUJyGkLbDe

The “Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome” or also called “Hagedoorn Syndrome” is a very rare autosomal dominant disorder. This is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. It mainly affects the development of the eyes but it can also alter the development of the teeth and the abdominal region. This affects the cornea and the iris which will make the eye appear differently.

Individuals with this syndrome will have an off-center pupil or “corectopia” or extra holes in the eyes that makes it look like multiple pupils or”polycoria. ” About 50% of people who have this syndrome will also develop glaucoma which increases the pressure inside of the eye which can cause vision loss or blindness.

Mehlani’s eye condition may have made her unique, but this caused plenty of challenges for this little girl, including glaucoma. The mom worries that her daughter’s eye will cause more challenges as she gets older. During her interview with BuzzFeed News, Karina said that she had never heard about this condition until it happened to her daughter. Since Mehlani is suffering from glaucoma, she has to wear sunglasses whenever she goes outside.

On her tweets, she shared that everytime they are out and a stranger would compliment how big and beautiful her eyes are, she’s having a mental debate whether she should mention about her condition or not. She decided to just stay quiet, smile, and say thank you. Karina just prays that Mehlani will always know how beautiful she is.

She said that she gets so nervous when she thinks about Mehlani starting school. She said, “Maybe kids will call her mean names… It makes me want to cry thinking about it because she’s so strong and sweet and been through so much already. ”

Instead of receiving negative comments, the last thing that Karina expects is for the tweets about Mehlani will go viral. She was so surprised that people were supportive and those who experienced the same rare condition with their children chimed in too and reassured her that she is a great mom. She says that all the love and support that she receives touched her deeply.

One of the tweets said, “Looks like cute kid syndrome to me. Doing great mom. ”

She said that she will just tell Mehlani when she gets older that God made her that way for a reason. Everybody has something that makes them different. Karina knew that at this point, her daughter is still too young to understand why she is different from the others.

Mehlani might experience different problems as she gets older but with a mom like Karina, everyone believes that the little girl will have a great life especially having a mom who will help her deal with these challenges in life.

Everytime were out & a stranger compliments on how big & beautiful her eyes are, I have a mental debate on whether or not I should mention her defect. I decide no, smile & say thank you. I’m always left with a weird feeling. I just pray she’ll always know how beautiful she is. pic.twitter.com/JUJyGkLbDe

3 Adults Live In This 160sqft Home. Watch What Happens When You Open The Door.

3 Adults Live In This 160sqft Home. Watch What Happens When You Open The Door.

If you’re not familiar with the tiny home movement, you haven’t been paying attention to home trends in America. They’re as popular now as they were a few years ago. Compared to usual homes, tiny homes offer several benefits. You can live a much simpler life with fewer belongings, you can enjoy the lower stress levels of lighter bills, and you can even travel with your home if it is mobile.

Although tiny homes offer a lot to homeowners, they are not for everyone. Some people like having a lot of space. Others like having a large collection of belongings. But if you’ve ever considered owning or living in a tiny home, then you have to see this tour. You’ll discover how three adults make life work inside a 160-square-foot tiny house. Its layout is the most efficient living quarters I have ever witnessed. See it for yourself!

The house is the feature of the blog “The Tiny Tall House.” And as the family living in it believes, “An adventure is living simply.” From a regular American home in Massachusetts, the Hall family it was time to downsize. So along with their 18-year-old son, the family started to live in the tiny home that is smaller in square-footage than many people’s bedrooms.

Part of the fun of living in a tiny home is figuring out how everything is going to fit. Within just 160 square feet, the Halls had to pack a bathroom, kitchen, and enough sleeping area for three adults. While you probably don’t think it is possible for three adults to share such a small space, without constant fights and arguments, the Halls have pulled it off and are opening their doors to you.

They want more people to understand that living the tiny home dream is not as farfetched as one might suspect. Although their home is minuscule, it is loaded with creature comfort. The home is loaded with small details. And they also invested a lot in the landscaping, which took this house into the Tiny Home Big Leagues (if that were only a thing).

The “big room” or the main living space in the home is enough for three adults and their dog. They built storage into the design, which minimizes the clutter that a family would normally accumulate. And with the tall ceilings, the room seems bigger than you’d suspect. The room stays cool with a ceiling fan and offers easy access to the loft, which is one of the comfy sleeping areas.

Natural light was also a special feature of the home. It helped lower electricity costs and give the light of the sun a place alongside the three adults and the dog.

Instead of a traditional TV, the family “cut the cord” and uses their desktop computer. That’s one thing that becomes a struggle to share.

The sleeping area is above the small kitchen. The stairs up to the loft also second as a panty for kitchen items.

The family knows how to maximize storage space. Could you make life in a tiny home work for your family?

Cat Refuses To Let Owner Sleep, So She Decides To Follow Him. Discovers Terrifying Scene

Cat Refuses To Let Owner Sleep, So She Decides To Follow Him. Discovers Terrifying Scene

Cats are adorable and they are naturally sweet and clingy. This is the reason why most of us have cats at home. This is also the reason why Janie DeMartini decided to adopt a shelter cat one day. She didn’t know that her decision to take this cat home with her would change her family’s life.

Janie’s cat would end up saving one of their lives. Janine is a social worker who had written papers about the benefits of animal-assisted therapy but she never knew that she would experience first hand what others call Pet Power.

Janie DeMartini fostered Herbie from the States Island Hope Animal Rescue. She said, “They asked me if I would foster him and I said ‘sure. ’ He just fit in right away. ” He is very gentle, quiet, and very friendly.

On July 2014, after juggling her time with her work, school, and her children, she just wanted to go to bed. Herbie started meowing loudly and Janie was surprised because Herbie was usually a very mellow cat so she knew that something is wrong.

At first, she just did not mind him but when he came into her room and jumped onto her bed and started meowing again, she realized that she had to check why he’s behaving strangely. Janie shared, “Something said that this is not his personality and there’s something wrong. ” When she got up, Herbie jumped off the bed and headed for the door, as if telling her to follow him. Janine said, “I was so tired and I was like, all right, he’s just being a cat.

But something said this is not his personality. There’s something wrong. ”

She decided to follow her cat and she was surprised that he led her to her baby daughter’s room. When Janine opened the door, what she saw shocked her to the core. What she discovered was so terrifying. Her daughter Isabella’s face was covered with a blanket and she’s making “smothering noises.

” like she couldn’t breathe. Janie suspects that her daughter must have rolled over and the blanket started suffocating her. “He saved my daughter,” she tearfully recalled.

Herbie was quick to jump into the crib and started clawing, trying to pull the blanket off from the baby’s face. The family knew that if Herbie wasn’t there to alert Janie, the situation could’ve ended terribly. Little Isabella who was just a few months that time and would not be able to take that blanket out of her face that can suffocate her to death.

Janie said, “Herbie really is the hero… And I knew at that point, enough foster, he’s my family.”

Herbie will always have a place in the DeMartini home. He has an incredible bond not only with little Isabella but also with the entire family. Animals can sense danger even before humans can. This cat was saved from being put down if he was left in the shelter and in return, he saved her daughters’ life, a life-saving cycle that is truly an inspiration for everyone.

Her story was shared with Animal Planet and ever since Janie’s interview about Herbie went online, it became viral and now has almost one million views and 18,000 Likes. Herbie will always be special for the DeMartini family and the cat surely feels the same way with his new human family.

More And More Seniors Are Replacing Teenagers As Minimum Wage Workers. This Is The Reason Why

More And More Seniors Are Replacing Teenagers As Minimum Wage Workers. This Is The Reason Why

There’s a growing trend towards the median age of fast food workers — bottom line, it’s no longer just teenagers working at McDonald’s and other similar restaurants. Gone are the days of teens working their first jobs at chain restaurants, though you’ll still find that age group there, but now some senior citizens are getting in on these jobs as well.

Why the shift in demographic?

The trend is the result of restaurants recruiting seniors through ads displayed on the AARP website, as well as at churches and senior centers, where they’re most likely to see this messaging.

The reasons are simple enough: seniors typically have better social skills than the younger generations who are so wrapped up with social media and their phones, they don’t possess those “people person” skills.

Another reason for hiring seniors is that they’re more reliable, will show up to work on time, and have a stronger work ethic than a teenager who is likely to arrive late or flake on taking shifts.

A lot of seniors take on these types of jobs because they’re retired and have found themselves bored after working their whole lives, while others lean on the part-time paycheck to supplement their retirement savings.

Stevenson Williams is a 63-year-old retired construction worker who works in the food service industry and is enjoying the late in life career.

He explained: “It’s fun for a while, not getting up, not having to punch a clock, not having to get out of bed and grind every day, but after working all your life, sitting around got old. There’s only so many trips to Walmart you can take.”

He started with a job washing dishes at Church’s Chicken four years ago and now manages 13 employees and works up to 70 hours a week. That’s a heck of a work ethic, but he loves what he does, explaining, “I just enjoy Church’s Chicken. I enjoy the atmosphere; I enjoy the people.”

It’s a win all around, as Williams serves as an excellent mentor to the younger employees, coaching them on how to behave in the workplace. He noted: “A lot of times with the younger kids now, they can be very disrespectful, so you have to coach them and tell them this is your job, this is not the street.”

Other seniors are happy with entry-level part-time work to enrich both their lives and their bank account. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the number of working Americans ages 65-74 will increase by 4.5% between 2014 and 2024; they expect the number of working Americans ages 16-24 to decrease by 1.5%.

Among the many comments left on social media about seniors taking jobs in the restaurant industry were those who were impressed with the idea, with one person noting: “I think it’s GREAT that we seniors are wanted as employees!! We show up on time, work hard and are reliable. Maybe the teens could LEARN from us!”

Another commenter noted that her husband manages a fast food restaurant and often comes home “aggravated and frustrated because of the teens working there,” explaining, “They want to talk and goof off… play on their phones… anything to not work.”
