A 76-year-old teacher in Illinois named Paul Durietz was just awarded a Guinness World Record for “longest career as a social studies teacher.” He’s been teaching at the same middle school for over 53 years…………….. A stray dog in Michigan got his head stuck in one of those big plastic jugs cheese balls come in. It was on his head for at least three days, but an animal shelter helped him out and got it off.

30 years ago, a woman in West Africa had been in labor for FOUR DAYS, and needed a C-section or she’d die, but she couldn’t afford it – it cost around $100. Luckily, a 22-year-old nurse from New Zealand named Aly Hogarth-Hall was there volunteering, and convinced a British doctor to do the surgery and he even paid for it too. It saved the woman’s life, and her child’s life. It’s in the news because Aly just saw her again for the first time in three decades. They’re both volunteering on a boat run by a Christian charity called Mercy Ships, which is like a floating hospital for third-world countries.
