Week in Review

  • Silver Spring State Park in Florida is home to at least 300 rhesus macaques, a monkey native to south and Southeast Asia. The monkeys have been rapidly breeding, causing problems because the monkeys carry a rare and deadly form of herpes virus called herpes B. While it is rare for herpes B to spread from a monkey to a humans, it can cause inflammation of the brain and spinal cord leading to brain damage or death (Nov. 9).
  • Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler of Texas found an interesting way to finalize the end of her marriage. Her father and brother-in-law came up with the idea of burning the dress with exploding targets. The dress went up in a puff of smoke on her first shot (Nov. 12).
  • Nostalgia fans rejoice! Toy Story 4 and Detective Pikachu have officially been given a release window. The two 90s franchises are now slated to be released in the summer of 2019 (Nov. 12).
  • Tide has released a more eco-friendly packaging for the liquid detergent. However, many people have pointed out online that the new packaging looks very similar to boxed wine (Nov. 12).
