I rather see Dennis Wong with the kindness of gifting on the front of the papers for over a month, I would think it will bring back the humanity in people.

Stray dog joins China mountain bike race, travels 2,000 kilometres
May 26, 2012

Dylan C. Robertson

A lonely stray dog from the heart of China has won thousands of fans – and a new life – after following a cross-country bike race for 24 days.

The China Daily reports that Zhang Heng, 22, took up a grueling, mountainous bike race as a graduation trip to see if he could make it alone.

On a stop in Sichuan province, he encountered a ratty white dog that looked hungry.

“She was lying, tired, on the street,” Heng told reporters. “So we fed her, and then she followed our team.”

The dog stayed by his team’s side night and day, travelling 2,000 kilometres to the race’s finish Saturday at the Tibetan capital Lhasa.

She was affectionately named Xiao Sa, a combination of “little” and the second syllable of Lhasa.

Heng said Xiao Sa ran the whole course, except when he’d carry her downhill to avoid high-speed danger.

Xiao Sa also became a star among Chinese bloggers. Heng created a Weibo blog, similar to Twitter, tracking their progress.

The account netted 40,000 followers. Many of them reposted a photo Heng posted when they reached their final destination, announcing he’d be adopting the dog.

Israeli man gives up quest to reach Everest summit to save Turkish climber
From online dispatches




An Israeli mountaineer abandoned his climb to the summit of Mount Everest, 300 meters away from the peak, in order to help an injured Turkish climber.

Had he chosen to complete his ascent, 24-year-old Nadav Ben-Yahuda would have become the youngest Israeli to reach Everest’s summit, the Jerusalem Post reported on its website.

Ben-Yahuda said he and his Sherpa guide saw a friend he had made at the base camp, 46-year-old Turkish-New Yorker Aydın Irmak, lying unconcsious on an icy ridge during the climb. “When we saw my friend Aydın there was no question,” Ben-Yahuda said as reported by Sharon Udasin of Jerusalem Post.

Ben-Yahuda lifted Irmak over his shoulder and began an eight-hour descend to Camp IV, without gloves and an oxygen mask as his had broken earlier.

The minus 40 degree Celcius cold left severe burns on both men's faces and Ben-Yahuda's ungloved fingers suffered frostbite and may need to be amputated, he said. The men eventually reached Camp IV and were evacuated by a helicopter.

Irmak said he had started his climb one day before Ben-Yahuda and had reached the summit, where he stayed for five or six minutes before he began his descent down the mountain.

“I started walking and walking and walking,” he said. “I don’t know how long I walked. It of course was dark and I was out of oxygen. Then I needed to stop. I don’t remember [what happened then].”

"The only think I remember is Nadav’s voice. ‘Aydın, Aydın, are you there brother? Can you move your legs?’ When I woke up there were four dead bodies around me,” Irmak said. “I believe I almost died. Nadav saved my life.”

The two men had struck up a friendship the moment they met at base camp and, according to Irmak, had formed a "brother relationship."

“I don’t know what the hell is going on between the two countries. I don’t care about that. I talked to [Ben-Yahuda's] family today and I told them you have another family in Turkey and America,” Irmak was quoted as saying.

SAO PAULO - A Brazilian airline says one of its female pilots tossed a passenger off a flight because he was making sexist comments about women flying planes.

Trip Airlines says in a Tuesday statement the pilot ejected the man before takeoff as he made loud, sexist comments upon learning the pilot was a woman. The jet continued on to the state of Goias after a one-hour delay.

The passenger involved in Friday's incident has not been identified. He was met by police at the plane and escorted out of the Belo Horizonte airport. Police at the airport have not responded to calls and it isn't known if the man has been charged with anything.

Trip says it won't tolerate disparaging remarks made about any of the 1,400 women working for the airline.

Runner victorious by finishing last

Because deep down we know this one thing:

What matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What matters in this life is helping others win, even if it means slowing down and changing our course.
