White snake on the loose in Manitoba neighborhood

 White snake on the loose in Manitoba neighborhood

Authorities in Manitoba are asking residents to keep an eye out for an estimated 8-foot white snake seen slithering through residential yards.



Breno Martins, who lives in the Fort Rouge area of Winnipeg, said he was mowing his lawn Saturday afternoon when he spotted the snake slithering in the grass alongside his house.


"When I saw it I literally freaked out," Martins told CBC News. "I don't know if it's dangerous. I don't know if it's venomous. And I know that we have many pets and kids in the neighborhood.

Martin and his neighbors attempted to keep an eye on the snake while waiting for Winnipeg Animal Services personnel to arrive, but the reptile disappeared into a neighbor's bushes before they arrived.


Police said animal services was not able to locate the serpent and warned nearby residents to be aware of an 8-foot-long snake on the loose in the area.


Rob Vendramelli, a volunteer with the Manitoba Herpetocultural Society, said the snake in photos snapped by Martin appears to be a nonvenomous corn snake.


"They're usually pretty comfortable with being handled, and not dangerous to people," he said. 



He said the animal is likely an escaped pet that got away from its owner.


"It was a nice day. Maybe someone had taken their snake out to the back yard to get some sun. Natural sunlight is beneficial to a lot of reptiles," he said.


Animal services chief Leland Gordon said the search for the snake was ongoing Monday.


"We do have our team out. We've gone several times on Saturday, our officers went several times on Sunday, and our animal services officers are going to attend yet again today," Gordon told Global News.

 Colorful 'Candy Land House' for sale in Chicago

The house in the Roger's Park neighborhood was built in 1891 and was remodeled into a pastel work of art by current owner Jackie Seiden and her husband, Don, who has since died. The couple lived in the house for 47 years.


"The whole house is pastel-colored and glitter from head to toe," Kathy Schrage, the Redfin real estate agent listing the home, told Block Club Chicago. "It's like a Barbie's dream home."


"It's the most eclectic house I've seen in 20 years as a Realtor," she said.


Jackie Seiden previously said the home was an olive green color when she and her husband moved in, and the pastel colors she started using inside the house soon spread to the exterior. The pastel theme even extends to the blinds, radiators and a piano.


Schrage said Seiden would prefer to sell the home to someone who would keep the house's unique elements, but the market will ultimately decide.

The current asking price for the house is $600,000.

Whale swallows lobster diver, rejects him as meal

 Whale swallows lobster diver, rejects him as meal


A Massachusetts lobster diver survived being swallowed up and then spat out by a humpback whale off the coast of Cape Cod, giving him about 40 surreal seconds in the mouth of the large marine animal.


In his own Biblical Jonah and the whale story, Michael Packard said it happened in a flash as he swam in about 45 feet of water one moment before everything turned dark in an instant Friday. Packard said he initially thought he was attacked by a shark but realized he didn't feel like he was bitten and wasn't in any p

That's when he realized he was actually inside the mouth of a whale and fought to locate his breathing regulator fearing he could run out of air and suffocate. But the whale had other plans moments later.


"A humpback whale tried to eat me," Packard told WBTS. "I was in his closed mouth for about 30 to 40 seconds before he rose to the surface and spit me out. I am very bruised up but have no broken bones."


Packard said for those frantic moments, all he could think about was his two young boys and possibly dying inside the whale before the mammal rejected him as a meal. 


"I could sense I was moving," he told the Cape Code Times. "I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth."


Doctors released Packard from Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, battered, but no broken bones and one heck of a fish story to tell.

 Norwegian man dead hangs for 16 minutes to break world record


 A Norwegian man grabbed hold of a horizontal bar and assumed the dead hang position for 16 minutes and 3 seconds -- beating the Guinness World Record by more than two minutes.


Harald Riise managed to dangle from the bar for 16 minutes and 3 seconds in Baerum, Viken, to break the record of 13 minutes and 52 seconds, which was set by Italian man Tazio Gavioli in 2018.


"Setting a dead hang Guinness World Records title was for me the ultimate challenge. I wanted to show both myself and others that it was possible, and I'm thrilled that I succeeded," Riise told Guinness World Records.

Riise, a wheelchair user with cerebral palsy, said he spent more than 10 hours a week training for the record.


"Being a wheelchair user, I am dependent on my upper body strength to cope with everyday physical challenges. My ability to dead hang for instance is, quite literally, what gets me out of bed in the morning," he said.


Riise is also a motivational speaker under the name Viking Wheels.


"Through the concept of Viking Wheels, I hope to inspire people to follow their dreams, no matter what life has in store for them," he said. 


Riise's previous accomplishments include hand-cycling nearly 40 miles from Eidsvoll to Oslo and performing pull ups on top of a high-speed trailer.

Brazilian sculptor creates cardboard motorcycle replicas

 Brazilian sculptor creates cardboard motorcycle replicas

 An amateur sculptor in Brazil is making waves online after sharing his latest passion project: life-sized cardboard replicas of motorcycles.



Henry Goncalves, 19, of Sao Jose do Rio Preto, said he spent 10 months creating his first motorcycle replica, a Honda Hornet, from cardboard, PVC pipe and screws.

Goncalves, a lifelong car enthusiast, said the Hornet was the first bike to spark his love of motorcycles.


"For a long time, the appeal of bikes never made much sense to me. But that changed when a friend of my father's arrived with a Hornet. At that moment, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I said to myself: I have to have one of these," Goncalves told Zenger News.


Goncalves, who shares his art projects on his YouTube channel, said his second motorcycle, a BMW R1200, brought him his first viral attention.


"The second bike was the one from the video that went viral, the R1200. It took four months to make. If we compare, the 1200 is much more difficult than the Hornet, but with the 1200, I already had a certain amount of experience, so it was easier to do," he said. 



Goncalves said he is now setting his sights on even larger projects, and aspires to eventually build an entire cardboard house.

 2-foot exotic snake found in drain at England workshop


Animal rescuers in Britain said they are trying to find the owner of an exotic snake found in a drain at a garage workshop.


The RSPCA said workers at the garage in Kingston Upon Thames, England, spotted the 2-foot milk snake in a drain and they managed to contain the reptile and contact the animal rescue organization.

"This poor snake was found in a drain, but thankfully the staff at the garage spotted him and confined him in a box. I think he's likely to be an escaped pet as he was a decent weight so has clearly had someone looking after him quite recently," Animal Rescue Officer Jade Guthrie said.


Milk snakes are native to North and South America, but they are commonly kept as pets elsewhere.


"Snakes are excellent escape artists so I suspect this milk snake had escaped from a vivarium somewhere, so we are very keen to try and reunite the reptile with the owner," Guthrie said.

 Pizzeria employs robot server to bring food to tables

 A Rhode Island pizzeria unveiled the latest addition to its serving staff: a robot designed to take on the heavy lifting.



Bill Kitsilis, co-owner of Angelo's Palace Pizza in Cumberland, said he purchased a robot known as a Servi to help take some of the pressure off his staff.


"When we're really busy, our expediter is always yelling out, 'runners, runners,' looking for people to run food and our servers are busy," Kitsilis told WJAR-TV.

He said the robot is programmed with the layout of the eatery, so the operator needs only to put in the table number and the Servi will know where to go.


"I feel like if my servers are able to spend more face-to-face time with the guests instead of running back and forth in the restaurant, just makes the job easier," Kitsilis said.


The restaurant is holding a naming contest for the robot, with the winning submission earning a $100 gift card.

'Wheel whackers' keep snakes out of planes in California desert

'Wheel whackers' keep snakes out of planes in California desert

Airline Qantas said engineers maintaining the fleet of A380 superjumbo jets in California's Mojave Desert have taken to using broom handles as "wheel whackers" to keep rattlesnakes out of the planes.


The Australian airline said in a post on its website that engineers have been maintaining the fleet of planes that have been stored in the desert since the COVID-19 pandemic caused air travel to decline sharply, and the team soon discovered the location came with its own challenges.

"The area is well-known for its feisty 'rattlers,' who love to curl up around the warm rubber tires and in the aircraft wheels and brakes," Tim Heywood, Qantas' engineering manager for Los Angeles, said in the post.


He said the engineers came up with a way to avoid confrontations with the venomous rattlesnakes while working on the jets.


"Every aircraft has its own designated 'wheel whacker' (a repurposed broom handle) as part of the engineering kit, complete with each aircraft's registration written on it," Heywood wrote.


He said the method has proven effective in keeping the relationship between the engineers and nature harmonious.


"We've encountered a few rattlesnakes and also some scorpions, but the wheel whacker does its job and they scuttle off," he said. "It's a unique part of looking after these aircraft while they're in storage and it's another sign of how strange the past year has been. These A380s would rarely spend more than a day on the ground when they were in service."

The video recorded by a security camera at Hailey Morinico's family's home in Bradbury, in the San Gabriel Valley, shows three dogs in the enclosed yard becoming agitated and barking at a mother bear and her cubs perched on a brick wall dividing the back yard from a neighbor's property.



The mother bear swats at the dogs as they approach to bark at the wild animals, and Morinico, 17, is then seen running into the yard, shoving the bear off the wall, and gathering up the dogs to bring them inside.


Morinico said she rushed outside when she heard the dogs barking, initially thinking another dog must have approached the yard.


"I run to see what they're barking at and it's not a dog -- it's a bear," she told KTLA-TV.


Morinico said she panicked when she saw the dangerous situation the dogs were in.


"I see the bear, it's grabbing my dog, Valentina, and I have to run over there. She's a baby," the teenager said. "And the first thing I think to do is push the bear. And somehow it worked."


Morinico walked away with only a minor scratch, but she recommended others not attempt to follow her example.


"Do not push bears," she said. "Don't do what I did, you might not have the same outcome."

A man fishing on an a New Brunswick, Canada, river noticed some unusual activity in the water and ended up rescuing a red squirrel struggling with some bass


Matt Myers said he was fishing for striped bass on the Miramichi River when he saw a group of bass splashing at the surface of the water.


"I was watching some splashing and all of a sudden I looked to the side and I thought 'What is that in the middle of this spawning activity?'" Myers told CBC News.


He said he initially thought the bass were attacking a stick, but he then realized they were nipping at an animal.


"Lo and behold, it's this poor little red squirrel in the middle of all this spawning activity," Myers said. "The bass appeared to be coming up and nipping at it."


Myers used his paddle to scoop the squirrel up onto his kayak and gave it a ride back to shore.


He said the fish had likely confused the squirrel's splashing for a female preparing to lay her eggs.


"I don't think they were trying to eat it," Myers said.

Joe Grisamore set his first record in 2020, when his fan Mohawk was measured at 42.5 inches tall.

"Kay and I had worked for a long time, as far as how to make this all happen," Grisamore told KARE-TV. "We just [did] it without ratting it, laying on the floor -- different hair sprays -- I don't know, it was a big trial and error."


Grisamore's hair now holds two Guinness records.


"Of the two titles that exist, I now hold them both," Grisamore said. "Laura wanted me to be humble and not do the second one. I figured if it's out there and it exists, let's make it happen

"Next one is going to be more crazy, get ready baby," Kobeitri said. "And I'm going to make it happen!"
