A Preschool Teacher Gave Her Student a Kidney

 

kidney1-zjw

 

A four-year-old girl in Madison, Wisconsin named Lyla Carreyn was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder about a year ago, and her kidneys started failing.So she’s been on dialysis, and went on the transplant list.  No one in her family was a match, but she needed a new kidney or she’d die.  So things weren’t looking good. Then about two weeks ago, her mom got called into Lyla’s preschool . . . they claimed it was to meet a new teacher.  But when she got there, two of Lyla’s teachers sat her down and gave her a box with a note inside. It turned out one of THEM was a match, and the note said she wanted to donate one of HER kidneys.  Her name is Beth Battista.  (We’re not sure how old she is, but she looks like she’s in her 30s.)

They also recorded the whole thing with a hidden camera and posted it online.  Obviously Lyla’s mom was pretty emotional. Apparently they have a few more things to take care of before the transplant can happen.  But they’re hoping to do it early next year.

2.  The word for a single piece of confetti is “confetto.”

3.  During the course of your life, you’re breathing in molecules of air that have been breathed in by almost every OTHER person who’s ever lived.  It’s not guaranteed or anything.  But yeah, mathematically it’s possible.

This past summer wasn’t great for the box office . . . and so “Rolling Stone” asked their readers which movie they thought was the WORST.  And here’s how the Top 10 shook out . . .

1.  “Suicide Squad”.  They said the trailer was good, but the actual movie was “boring, confusing, and ultimately pointless.”  And they also mentioned how Jared Leto’s role of the Joker was reduced to a “glorified cameo.”

 

2.  “Independence Day: Resurgence”

 

3.  “Ghostbusters”

 

4.  “X-Men: Apocalypse”

 

5.  “Captain America: Civil War”.  Which is sort of a weird one to include, since both critics and audiences seemed to like it.  And it made a ton of money.

 

6.  “Swiss Army Man”, where Daniel Radcliffe plays a bloated, gassy corpse.

 

7.  “Neon Demon”, a psychological horror thriller starring Elle Fanning.

 

8.  “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”

 

9.  “Ben-Hur”

 

10.  “Warcraft”

A Bus Driver Saved 20 Kids from a Burning Bus

 

 A school bus in Maryland caught on FIRE on Monday afternoon.  And there were 20 elementary school kids on board.  It happened in College Park, just outside D.C.The bus driver was a woman named Reneita Smith, and she immediately started getting the kids off the bus, one-by-one.  (We’re not sure how old she is, but she looks like she’s in her 30’s.) Then, even though she thought they were all out, she ran BACK into the burning bus to make sure no one got left behind. In the end, no one was hurt. A firefighter’s dash-cam got footage of the fire after they were all safe. The school bus was fully engulfed with black smoke pouring out the windows.

Eight Things That Just Aren’t Cool Anymore

White thumb up next to the like from social networks on blue bac

 

What is and isn’t cool changes frequently . . . and that transition usually happens once people’s parents find out what’s cool and try to get in on it.

There’s a discussion on Reddit right now where people are talking about things that USED to be cool but just aren’t anymore.  Here are eight of the best answers. Do you agree?

 

1.  Pushing people into swimming pools.  Now that we all have electronics in our pockets, the prank becomes an expensive disaster.

 

2.  Facebook.

 

3.  Shirts and posters that use the “Keep Calm” phrase, like “Keep Calm and Eat Nachos” or “Keep Calm and Do the Harlem Shake” or whatever.

 

4.  MTV.

 

5.  Using text language, like the letter “u” instead of the word “you.”  No one texts like that anymore.

 

6.  Wearing those silicone wristbands for different causes.

 

7.  Wearing a backpack with just one strap.  Using both straps is okay again.

 

8.  Smoking cigarettes.
