A dog lover has been hailed a ‘real-life superhero’ for using her drone to reunite families with their lost pups most recently, just in time before a ‘deadly’ storm hit. September 9th was a normal Friday for Erica Hart, as she abandoned her shopping trip to rush home and launch a drone search for a schnauzer before a rumbling thunderstorm made things worse. Jamie Hollinshead phoned her from Clayton, Yorkshire, to say his rescue dog Hilda had bolted from their garden and they’d already searched for two hours. The 33-year-old rushed to the last-known location and within 20 minutes spied the escaped pooch running down a residential road. When the two-year-old dog darted into a nearby field and kept moving, Erica was able to direct Jamie and his wife to the best spot for intercepting her. The couple from Clayton, who adopted the rescue dog this past April, has hailed Erica a ‘real-life superhero’ and believes Hilda could have been killed had she not been found before the thunderstorm hit minutes later.
Young Amazon Driver Hailed a Hero for Rescuing Family From a Burning Home:
An Amazon delivery driver is congratulated by a Long Island community for selflessly risking his life to help a family evacuate from their burning house. Syosset Long Island firefighters arrived at the house 4 minutes after they got the 9/11 call, but to their relief, the family was standing outside by the curb. Minutes before, Kevin Rivera was finishing his Amazon delivery route when he saw the flames consuming the front of the house, yet despite the front door being wide open, it was clear the family inside didn’t know what was going on. An interesting situation arose when rushing in, he realized that not only did the family of 6 which included a baby, not know their house was burning down, but a language barrier made communication impossible. Eventually, he got the family to escape out of the back door. When the family finally saw the flames, they began to cry. A neighbor who filmed the house told local news that everyone thanks Mr. Rivera an awful lot more than most Amazon delivery drivers would be accustomed to when he arrives with their packages.
New Poll Reveals The Secret to Happiness is Practicing Gratitude:
The secret to maximum happiness may be expressing gratitude, a new poll suggests. The random double-opt-in survey of 2,000 Americans looked at the potential connection between gratitude and happiness revealing that 65% of respondents who report that they’re “very happy” on a daily basis were more likely to “always” give thanks. While looking at the correlation between life satisfaction and gratitude, one-third of respondents said they “always” express gratitude in their everyday lives. Of those, 62% noted they were “very satisfied” with their lives. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Motivosity, the survey also found that, on average, respondents believe they express gratitude to others about six times a month and they receive the same amount of appreciation back. Respondents say they receive the most gratitude from their spouses or partners (28%), family members (26%), and friends (24%) – with bosses (17%) and co-workers (15%) trailing further down the list.
