How’s this for mind over matter? A former news anchor in Houston broke both of his wrists in an Ironman race on Saturday, and still finished. He crashed eight miles into the 112-mile bike-ride portion, and didn’t realize his wrists were broken. So he rode another 104 miles, and then ran a full marathon. (Here’s a photo.)…… This is cool: A company is developing glasses that will SUBTITLE real-life conversations for people who have trouble hearing. (Full Story)…..And finally…………..
A dog that went missing on an island off the coast of Alaska just showed up in mainland Alaska . . . after walking across more than 150 miles of sea ice. His name is Nanuq. (nah-NOOK) Someone posted photos after he showed up in a town called Wales. It’s on the western tip of mainland Alaska. He had a bitemark from an unknown animal, possibly a seal or polar bear. But he’s okay. His owners live on St. Lawrence Island, about 160 miles south. A pilot who was headed there let him hitch a ride, and he’s back home now. (Here’s a photo, and a video of his owners waiting for the plane. The reunion happens at 10:45.)
