Week in Review

  • A Scottish man had to be rescued from a cliff after fleeing a colony of aggressive seals. Authorities said the man had been fishing when he encountered the group of 50 gray seals and their pups, which became agitated. He then climbed up a cliff to escape but became stuck about three quarters of the way up. Rescuers lowered a coast guard officer down to him, and he escaped unscathed (Nov. 5).
  • A statue of Liverpool soccer star Mohamed Salah has garnered quite the reaction for its resemblance to anything but its subject. The statue depicts Salah with his arms spread in out celebration after scoring a goal. Viewers have taken to social media to compare it to 1970s singer Leo Sayer, cartoon characters Beavis and Butt-Head and Marv Merchant from the Home Alone films (Nov. 5)
  • Idris Elba was named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2018. The London-raised actor is known for playing drug kingpin Russell “Stringer” Bell in HBO’s series The Wire and Heimdall in the Thor franchise. “Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today,’” Elba said of his reaction to hearing the news (Nov. 6).
