A man dubbed the human coral reef has been successfully treated for a rare condition that covered his whole body in shell-like growths. 

Lin Tianzhuan, 38, of Shuimen, southern China, first noticed the growths on his hands and feet when he was just 13.

"It started with a few hard bumps so I tried to apply antibiotics and creams but it didn't get better," he explained.

He died in 1990 just two months before his son was shot in The Gulf War. This is his second life and Laura is a savior to him.

On May 2nd, NorSled was contacted by the Stockton, CA shelter about a malamute mix who had a severe wound on his side. He was found at a Honda dealership with what we later found out, the vet thinks is an intentional acid wound. They were not sure he would make it through the night without the strong doses of antibiotics and pain meds they would need to treat his wounds. 			 				  			 				NorSled picked him up Saturday and took him straight to by tracie

My 16 year old daughters hair has been getting oily at the roots.I noticed what I thought was dandruff,getting worse with scaling and patchy areas,a bit of pinkness, I was worried about scalp exzema or psoriasis. Or maybe irritation from all the chemicals in other shampoos,not rinsing well enough, etc.I just started using psoriasis shampoo/conditioner and vinegar rinse. Huge improvement. It has only been one week and her scalp is 80% better. by nanette

"Percy wanted to tell her it was okay, but of course it wasn't. He couldn’t even feel his body anymore. His consciousness was like a small helium balloon, loosely tied to the top of his head. It had no weight, no strength. It just kept expanding, getting lighter and lighter. He knew that soon it would either burst or the string would break, and his life would float away." - page 242, House of Hades Percy-Annabeth part 1 by reyna

Rev. James Harvey Anderson (b. 1848) started working at age seven as his widowed mother could not support him. His employers were cruel, so he ran away at 14. He went to work for a wounded Lieutenant and attended school. He converted to Christianity and soon became an ordained deacon. A Republican, he was the first black nominated candidate for the RI State Legislature. by samanthasam
