The Marion Country Sheriff's department in Oregon shared this story on their Facebook about how the delivery drivers at a local Domino's saved the life of a loyal customer:

On Sunday, May 8th an alert Domino’s delivery driver called the Sheriff’s Office after a regular customer failed to order a pizza from the Salem area company. Tracey Hamblen, an employee at Domino’s on Silverton Road NE, called the Sheriff’s Office after not speaking with the customer in 11 days. Mr. Hamblen had formed a relationship with the victim because of the regular orders and knew he suffered form severe health issues.

When the Sheriff’s Office arrived at the residence in the 4100 block of Penticton Circle NE, they could hear a man calling for help from inside the residence. Deputies forced entry and found Kirk Alexander, age 48, of Salem down and in need of immediate medical attention.

Thanks to the quick actions of Mr. Hamblen, Mr. Alexander is in stable condition at the Salem Hospital. The Sheriff’s Office would like to personally thank Mr. Hamblen for his quick actions and willingness to take time out of his day to care for others.

Nothing warms the heart quite like two victims of circumstances beyond their control, finding solace in the companionship of one another.

At 10-months-old Scarlette Tipton lost her left arm to cancer. Her parents desperately wanted little Scarlette, now two-years-old, to have the chance to grow up with a little kitten just like her; and they couldn't have found a better match. Meet Doc: a rescue kitten who had her right paw amputated following a car accident.

On Christmas Eve the two were united at a shelter in California. That very Wednesday, Doc had already been welcomed aboard as the new member of the family.

Scarlett's mother, Simone Tipton, told Love Meow that Scarlette "did notice that Doc had staples on her side and said 'owies'. I let her know that she had owies just like her, and she placed her hand on her side and just nodded. She recognizes that the cat has similar struggles as she does."

Lebanese host Rima Karaki was interviewing Islamic sheik Hani Al Sibai last week on Al-Jadeed TV about why some Christians would want to join ISIS.

When he started to drag on, she interrupted him to keep the conversation moving, but he was not pleased at being told what to do.

“Listen, don’t cut me off,” he said. “I will answer as I please.”

She politely warns him that they are running out of time, and he rudely tells her to “shut up,” and that it is “beneath” him to be interviewed by her.

Eventually she just cut his mic to put a stop to it.

“Had I not answered, I would have hated myself, and I don’t want to hate myself,” she told The Guardian. “When he said shut up, it was no longer possible to shut up because I would be insulting myself and would lose everything.”

The confrontation between the two has since gone viral, and Sibai is demanding an apology from the network.

The video now has over 5 million views, and Karaki is getting lots of support from viewers on Twitter.

The arm was created by Enabling the Future, which has a chapter at Sienna College in Albany, New York. For its first project the Siena e-NABLE group made an Iron Man-themed hand for 5-year-old Jack Carder in Ohio.



In this case, nine-year-old Karissa Mitchell's (who was born without a right hand and most of her wrist) mother reached out to the group on campus, Siena College's director of marketing and communications said.

"She's watched the movie at least 100 times. We sing the songs all the time. We even have a karaoke machine that's 'Frozen'-themed," said Karissa's mother. The prosthetic was built using a 3-D printer and is comprised of 30 parts (it took near 30 hours to make).

To help Karissa achieve her dream of becoming a Disney princess, the team used "a pretty transparent ice blue color filament and added snowflakes to the forearm and her name with an Elsa crown on the cuff," said Alyx Gleason, the project lead and president of Siera e-NABLE. The arm also came with an Olaf LED light source.

Anyone who is in need of an arm or hand is encouraged to reach out to Siena e-NABLE.

From the New York Post:

For months doctors searched for a way to awaken Li, but to no avail. It wasn't until his family revealed what he loved most in the world that they found their key to success.

"We had asked his family what really drove him, and they were very clear that it was money," Tang said. "When we learned about his fondness for money, we experimented with notes and change.

"Memories of smell and sound can be very powerful stimulants," he added. "We found that a crisp, new 100 yuan note crumpled under his nose worked best."
