check out this cat being epic

Ahh cats. Cats are perfect when it comes to doing cool stuff like olympic athletes do.
Roary you are my new hero. Per The Daily Mail describing a video: Roary the American moggy is a pro at somersaults and has been caught on camera showcasing his impressive skills. Over and over again the black and white cat rolls over –
placing his head on the floor before tumbling over onto his back and sitting up again. The women watching are thoroughly delighted by his antics.
He doesn’t once seem to get dizzy and hardly takes a breather between tumbles.
At one point he takes a quick nap and lies down on the carpet, his tummy rising and falling as he pants. “Oh no I think he’s too tired now,” the lady filming comments.
But within moments the athletic feline is back on his feet somersaulting with abandon. I love this.

“I think it’s foolhardy; I think it’s not justifiable,” Mann, 75, a retired executive, said on Wednesday, hours after a federal judge ruled that Hinckley could be released from a psychiatric hospital to live with his 90-year-old mother at Kingsmill.” 3.

German scientists find a fighter against MRSA in our nose

Our nose is not just for digging out gold. What was found in our nose might help us fight off the MRSA virus.
The scientists found the bacteria Staphylococcus lugdunensis , commonly found in the nose, produces an antibiotic that researchers at the University of Túbingen found kills the dangerous pathogen methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus , also known as MRSA.
MRSA typically infects people in hospitals, nursing homes and other medical settings who have other health conditions that weaken the immune system. The bacteria has become resistant to most antibiotics, including those used to treat other staph infections, and kills about 20,000 people per year.
