Week in Review

  • A California high schooler recently shared a special batch of homemade cookies with her classmates. The secret ingredient? A grandparent’s cremated ashes. One classmate remarked that he did not believe the student until she pulled out the urn and said there was a special ingredient in the treats. No one who ate the cookies has reported ill effects (Oct. 18).
  • An Arizona man was rescued after surviving two days being stuck down an abandoned 100-foot mine shaft. One of his friends reportedly heard him calling for help and contacted authorities. The friend said that the man was “a tough guy” who had to kill three rattlesnakes during the ordeal (Oct. 18).
  • The metal band Between the Buried and Me recently became the namesake of a new species of brittle star. Luxembourg scientists discovered a fossil off the coast of South Carolina and, being fans of the group, dubbed the new species Amphilimna intersepultosetme, which is the band’s name in Latin (Oct. 21).
  • The New York Police Department is recalling 2,990 body cameras after one exploded while an officer was wearing it. An investigation revealed that the camera’s battery could ignite and cause an explosion. The officer was startled but not injured (Oct. 21).
