1. Legally Blind Student Defies Odds, Gets Accepted into Veterinarian School


Faith Snapp had always grown up around animals; and though she couldn’t see them, she always loved them. Now, she’s on the road to becoming perhaps Texas’ first-ever blind veterinarian, and she spoke to Fox News recently about her journey, and about how anything is possible if you believe it’s possible.

Born quite prematurely, Snapp has about 10% vision. Her right eye can detect motion. Her left is more suited to colors, large print, and shapes. She says she never let her disability get in the way of her living her life, and as long as there was accommodation and people to support her, she felt there was nothing she couldn’t do.


Case in point, Snapp was recently accepted into Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine after years of volunteering in local animal clinics.



2Freaky Fate Finds Man Seated Next to His Doppelganger—And They Have the Same Names, Hobbies, and Hometowns


A man was stunned recently to discover his doppelganger seated next to him on an airline flight—and not only do they look alike, they found out they had the same names, hobbies, and even a mutual friend.

Mark Garland arrived at the check-in desk at Heathrow airport for a flight to Bangkok, Thailand, when staff informed him that he had “already checked in”.

After 40 minutes, staff finally figured out that there were two Mark Garlands on the flight.

“I said, ‘Look I’m Mark Garland’, showing him my passport, and he started laughing and opened his passport and showed me his name.”

But having identical names was just the beginning.



3. ‘A Bicycle Built for Two’ Might Improve Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease–Study


Tandem cycling may improve the health and well-being of people with Parkinson’s, according to a new study.

Pedaling on a bicycle built for two people can also be beneficial for the patient’s carer, particularly in terms of mental and emotional resilience.

The new findings have offered new potential avenues for improving the quality of life both for people suffering from the complex neurodegenerative condition and for those around them.

Researchers from the University of South Carolina in the US studied 18 participants—nine with Parkinson’s and nine care partners—as they took part in a tandem cycling program over two months.
