According to reports, the fox entered the London house on the ground floor through an open door and attacked the nine month old babies upstairs. After finding the fox in the room and seeing blood in the cot, the parents took the children to hospital who are said to be stable but suffering from fractures.

At only two years old, Ardi Rizal has become a cigarette addict–smoking nearly 40 cigarettes a day.
His mother, Diana, 26, says it all started when his father gave him a cigarette at 18 months. And now, if he doesn’t get a cigarette whenever he demands, he goes into a hysterical tantrum.
“He’s totally addicted,” his mother told The Sun. “If he doesn’t get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.”
The boy is such an expert smoker, he blows smoke filled rings to amuse his playmates.
Officials in Indonesia have offered to buy the family a car if he quits. But the boy’s father doesn’t see a reason to worry. “He looks pretty healthy to me,” he said. “I don’t see the problem.”

Sorta weird how this became the globe-trotter episode. I’d seen BABIES a few weeks ago and was going to go with it as the sole focus of the show, then late last week I stumbled onto BEETLE QUEEN CONQUERS TOKYO and — despite the little voice whispering ever so delicately in the back of my head, “YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO BACK OFF THE WORKLOAD, M*TH*F***A!” — I realized I had to cover it as well. Hence, another double-up ep for ya (and just so you’re braced, we’ll be doing it again the week following next).
What changed my mind about BEETLE QUEEN was debuting director Jessica Oreck’s approach to the subject of Japan’s seemingly nationwide fascination for insects. Oreck, who’s also an animal keeper and docent at New York’s American Museum of Natural History, lays the motivations out neatly — turns out much of Japanese culture is rooted historically in the observation and appreciation of creepy, crawly things — and examines how that veneration plays out in contemporary society through a healthy collector’s subculture; commercially marketed supplies for both the support and preservation of pet bugs; and vending machines that dispense live creatures into the eager clutches of the nation’s children (Japan, remember?). But then she takes it further, absorbing the animistic outlook of Shinto and such concepts as mono no aware and using them to model the film as a meta-presentation of the philosophies that drive the country’s appreciation of the natural world. More than just simple nature film or an anthropological examination, BEETLE QUEEN becomes the attitude itself, and a fascinating immersion into another society’s vision of the world.
Director Thomas Balmès has a much simpler mission in BABIES, but with a somewhat similar goal: Travel the world, capture on film the first year-or-so of four babies from markedly different corners of the world, and let the viewer examine what in those initial months are universal, and what is markedly different. The four societies Balmès selects — a tribal group in Namibia; a farming family in Mongolia; and parents in urbane San Francisco and two-minutes-into-the-future Tokyo (again) — all form distinctive incubators for their newest residents. Yet for all that the environments leave their marks on these kids (in one particularly indelible moment, the overstimulated Japanese baby suffers a grand mal meltdown within a nest of playthings), what stands out most is how closely the recently arrived experience their entry into the world. That may not be a revolutionary concept, but it does make for a viewing experience that extends beyond just the obligatory, “Awwwwww.” (But you will probably go, “Awwwwww,” at least once.)

SAY NO TO TOXINS and JOIN THE CRAWL
Mounting scientific evidence points to widespread exposure to chemicals that can cause serious and adverse impacts on human health, particularly for children.
The federal law that should protect us from health-harming chemicals just doesn't work. Since 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has required safety testing on only 200 of the more than 80,000 chemicals on the market. We need a stronger chemical law to keep our families safe and healthy.*
Babies everywhere are crawling to Washington and saying “no” to toxic chemicals found in household products. Join the crawl and help Seventh Generation, maker of naturally safe and effective household products, demand change! Join the crawl.

British scientists have mastered a controversial technique using cloning technology to prevent some incurable inherited diseases by swapping DNA between two fertilized human eggs.
Lead researcher Doug Turnbull of Newcastle University said on Wednesday he hoped the first babies free from so-called mitochondrial diseases would be born within three years.
But applying the technique in the clinic, to help women at risk of passing on the disorders, will require a change in British law that currently bans reproduction from such manipulated embryos, which would end up having three biological parents.
Around one in 6,500 children are born with serious diseases caused by malfunctioning mitochondrial DNA, leading to a range of conditions that can include fatal heart problems, liver failure, brain disorders, blindness and muscular weakness.
The Newcastle team's technique effectively replaces mitochondria, which act as tiny energy-generating batteries inside cells, so a baby doesn't inherit faults from its mother. Mitochondria are only passed down the maternal line.
"What we've done is like changing the battery on a laptop. The energy supply now works properly, but none of the information on the hard drive has been changed," Turnbull said.
"A child born using this method would have correctly functioning mitochondria, but in every other respect would get all their genetic information from their father and mother."
The researchers use a variation of the same technique used to make Dolly the cloned sheep in 1996.
Within a day of uniting egg and sperm using in vitro fertilization, nuclear DNA is removed from the embryo and implanted into a donor egg, whose own nucleus has been removed and discarded.

James Harrison, 74, has an antibody in his plasma that stops babies dying from Rhesus disease, a form of severe anemia.
It was found his plasma could treat the condition and since then it has been given to hundreds of thousands of women.
Mr Harrison has been giving blood every few weeks since he was 18 years old and has now racked up a total of 984 donations.
It is estimated he has helped save 2.2 million babies so far.
He said: 'I've never thought about stopping. Never.' He made a pledge to be a donor aged 14 after undergoing major chest surgery in which he needed 13 litres of blood.James Harrison, 74, has an antibody in his plasma that stops babies dying from Rhesus... more

After nearly four months in neonatal intensive care, Duggar baby No. 19, Josie Brooklyn, is finally leaving the hospital.
"We're grateful for the prayers of thousands," Jim Bob Duggar tells PEOPLE as he and wife Michelle left Arkansas Children's Hospital on Tuesday with Josie. "We are so happy," adds Michelle. "We are so excited, we are running on adrenaline. I have been getting into the routine of every three hours feeding, diapering and taking her temperature. We are so encouraged that she is doing so well."
As they drove away from the hospital, her physician, Dr. Robert Arrington said, "This is the first time Josie has seen sunlight." She was born on Dec. 10 via emergency C-section at just 25 weeks' gestation. Weighing just 1 lb. 6 oz., the micropreemie fought for her life, surviving a bowel perforation at only 8 days old.
Today, Josie weighs 4 lbs. 9 oz., is breathing without oxygen, eating every three hours and stable enough to go home, says Arrington. It's a bittersweet day for the staff. "I will miss being around the baby and the family," Arrington says. "They are very nice people. But they've told me they will stay in touch and come by the nursery to let us see her."
Michelle says the family's emotional roller-coaster ride has "leveled out," and that Josie's disposition has been a joy in hard times. "She has a strong personality," Michelle says. "She is a spunky little thing and will keep us all going."
The littlest Duggars at home – Jackson, 5, Johanna, 4, Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn, 15 months – have never seen Josie in person and "are jumping up and down that they will finally get to meet their baby sister," says Michelle. Of course, given Josie's still-delicate state, "the little ones will have to be careful with slobbery kisses to prevent any colds and sniffles," Michelle adds.
The family will remain in a rental home nearby in Little Rock indefinitely until they are ready to take Josie home to Tontitown, Ark. "I will be her main caregiver," Michelle says, "and we'll have a lot of helpers around to take turns feeding her and getting her to sleep."

So, some people like to call things FAILs, when they aren’t FAILs at all. I try to look for the glimmer of goodness in everything, so this is another edition of some FAILs that I don’t think are really FAILs.
Most structures need mortar and steel to stand. This man has constructed a fully functioning Pompadour with no more than hairspray and elbow grease.
C'mon this isn't a FAIL. They say that unemployment rates are surging amongst youth. Clearly this young man is rolling in dough. Don't knock this young entrepreneur.
NOT A FAIL! As the 16th century English poet Christopher Marlowe once wrote: "Tis but an honour, to be granted glorious death from a Slurpee machine."
I know you say that you're "morally opposed" to big box stores, but it's so inconvenient to go downtown just for hookers. This store opened literally around the corner, I think you should really just check it out. I know that you'll really appreciate the discounts.
Do you want your kid to give your kid more air? Have you tested the playpen to make sure he doesn't go whoopsies? Did you double check? If the structure is sound this isn't a FAIL. Next!
UGH! I can't get over the abstinence-only sex education community. Let me make this clear: IF YOU GO ON A PICNIC WITHOUT CONDOMS, YOU WILL COME BACK PREGNANT!
This isn't a FAIL. It's a great example of someone adhering to the values of sustainability. When most people get junk mail, they normally just throw it out. This individual decided to prank-the-f*ck out of her roommate, by filling their Camry with coupons.
This is only a FAIL because you both went through the window. Honey how many times do I have to tell you? We have a door! The only time you should use a window, is in case of fire. And if this were a fire, your laughter would be completely inappropriate.
Catch up on your FAILs that aren’t FAILS.
