Florida Paramotor Pilot Helps Save Woman Clinging to Submerged Car That Crashed into Canal:
A paraglider out for a routine flight spotted a woman clinging to her submerged vehicle in a canal and swooped in to her rescue. Cristiano Piquet was filming his motorized flight near Homestead, outside of Miami, Florida, when he spotted the woman ‘holding on for her life’. Video shared by Piquet shows the woman in the water, screaming for help as she desperately holds onto her car. He called 911 and shouted across the canal to enlist the help of a nearby resident, who used ropes to pull the woman to safety. The woman, exhausted from the ordeal, can be seen hugging the good Samaritan that lifted her out of the water.
Heinz Spent 185,000 Hours Redesigning Their Ketchup Bottle Cap to Be 100% Recyclable:
Heinz recyclable Ketchup cap
After 185,000 hours, 8 years, and 45 iterations, Heinz has redesigned their plastic tops to be completely recyclable. Heinz created 45 different designs in total on the mission to create the new cap, which were printed in-house using a state-of-the-art 3D printer. They eventually settled on a polypropylene design that performs just as before but also can be recycled immediately. The top was not easily recyclable before, which resulted in as many as 1 billion of them every year going into landfills. This was due to the original silicone valve that made it “very difficult to recycle” since companies had to separate the valve from the rest of the top, too much to ask in many cases. The move will mean a potential one billion plastic caps, enough to fill 35 Olympic swimming pools, can be recycled instead of finding their way into landfill.
Golf Buddies Sink Consecutive Holes-in-One on Same Tee-Shot–Beating 17 Million to 1 Odds:
Peter John and Jaswant Sidhu – SWNS
Two golfer pals are celebrating a sporting ‘miracle’ after both getting holes-in-one in consecutive shots on the same hole, beating odds of 17 million to 1. Neither golfers had achieved a hole-in-one in 15 years of playing together, and the feat left themselves and fellow golfers John and Roger stunned. It was 69-year-old Jaswant Sidhu, stepping up on hole five of his normal Friday four-ball competition, who first achieved the feat on the 145 yard, par three hole, using a 9-wood. His friend, 72-year-old Peter John, followed suit and the two couldn’t believe what had happened. The two friends were left shocked at what they had managed to achieve with only one other report of it ever happening before in Yorkshire.
