Oscar The Bionic Cat

Pioneering surgery gives a poor cat TWO false back legs

Nine months ago he was fighting for his life after an horrific accident cost him both his back paws. Now Oscar is a bionic cat after pioneering surgery to give him prosthetic back paws.
The two year-old moggie is understood to be the first in the world to have the operation to attach new feet. Oscar was operated on by groundbreaking veterinary surgeon Noel Fitzpatrick.

Healing with prosthetics, titanium and other metals – he sounds like the stuff of science fiction.
But actually he is the modern answer to All Creatures Great and Small and now he – and Oscar – are set to be the stars of new BBC show The Bionic Vet.
The series follows Fitzpatrick, 40, as he tries to save animals using cutting edge technology, while Oscar is the star of the first episode.

Viewers will hear how beautiful black cat had his black paws sliced off by a combine harvester after he had gone out to play in fields near his home.
Losing blood and barely conscious he was close to death when he was found and owner Michael Nolan was warned to expect the worst.
The bank manager from Jersey said: ‘He was out in the corn fields. He was found by a neighbour. He had no back feet left it was horrific. There was blood everywhere. Bits of his skin were hanging off.’
Both his back paws were severed, and while cats can survive with good quality of life with three legs, they cannot with two.
Fitzpatrick devised a way of attaching prosthetic ‘paws’ to Oscar’s ankle in both back paws.
‘We will have to put new feet on him or put him to sleep. The procedure has never been done before.’ said the vet.
The audience will see how over a three hour operation he drilled holes into the cat’s legs and inserted metal rods into his ankle bones.
These cutting edge implants – known as an ITAP and developed by University College London – attaches to the bone at the point of amputation.
It sticks out of the skin enabling a prosthetic paws to be attached.
These have been specially made with a degree of wobble to enable Oscar to walk, climb and run.
The groundbreaking new paws are similar to the style of Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius’s ‘blade runner’ style prosthesis.
But Oscar will now have to be a house cat because the false limbs are not suitable for outdoor life.

The Swimming Orangutan

Suryia, a seven-year-old urangutan, has taken a shine to diving into a pool with bikini-clad trainer Moksha Bybee at at Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina

Smiles all round: Moksha and Suryia smile for the underwater camera, and Suryia even manages a wave

Woohoo! With his hair streaming back as Moksha swims through the water, Suryia certainly looks like he's having a whale of a time in the safari park pool

Swimming buddies: Moksha says Suryia only took three weeks to learn how to swim, and can now paddle up to 20ft unaided - having come up with a unique 'Borneo Crawl'

Moksha said: 'Suryia's learning curve has been incredible. His favourite thing is to dive into the water on my back. 'When I surface he pulls at me almost to say, "Again, again".'
And he's not just a dab hand at diving - Suryia is able to swim up to 20 feet unaided using his rudimentary 'Borneo crawl'.
Staff at the park believe that the plucky seven-year-old is the world's first aquatic orangutan.

Note: I'm sorry because the girl is in bikini... or swimsuit.

Coincidental 7 ... GRAPES – LUNGS


OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli.
These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream.
One reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 of pregnancy .
A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema .
Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.

Water Bridge

Water Bridge in Germany... What a feat!

Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters this is engineering!
This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and
West Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city
of Magdeburg, near Berlin. The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

Water Bridge Germany

Taking six years to build and costing around half a billion euros, the massive undertaking will connect Berlin's inland harbor with the ports along the Rhine river. At the center of the project is Europe's longest water bridge measuring in just shy of a kilometer at 918 meters. The huge tub to transport ships over the Elbe took 24,000 metric tons of steel and 68,000 cubic meters of concrete to build.
The water bridge will enable river barges to avoid a lengthy and sometimes unreliable passage along the Elbe. Shipping can often come to a halt on the stretch if the river's water mark falls to unacceptably low levels.
Note: I present this ... For those who appreciate engineering projects.

Coincidental 6 ... BEANSPROUTS – SPERM

Beansprouts - Sperm

The stir-fry favourite bears an uncanny resemblance to the images we see of ‘swimming’ sperm trying to fertilise an egg. And research from the US suggests they could play an important part in boosting male fertility.
A study at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio showed that to make healthy sperm in large quantities, the body needs a good supply of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against damage by harmful molecules called free radicals.
Just half a cup of bean sprouts provides 16 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for a man. It’s not just dad but baby too who could benefit.
Bean sprouts are packed with folate, a vitamin that prevents neural tube defects , where the baby is born with a damaged brain or spine.
Note: So, what are we waiting for.. let's eat it.

The Swimming Elephant

Gliding gracefully beneath the crystal-clear waters this Asian bull elephant cuts a mystical figure. Weighing 3.5 tons and standing at just under four metres, meet Rajan one of the last surviving elephants who helped with logging on the Andaman and Nicobar Island chain near the end of the Bay of Bengal.
Photographed by Cesare Naldi, these amazing images show the unique bond between 60-year-old Rajan and 58-year-old mahout (elephant driver), Nasru.

Weighing 3.5 tons and standing at just under four metres, 60-year-old Rajan dives with his 58-year-old mahout (elephant driver), Nasru Renowned for his ability to swim, Rajan and Nasru have become something of a fixture at their home on Havelock Island, which is in the Indian Ocean.

In one spectacular image Nasru is seen balancing on the animals tusks as the elephant took a breather on his morning swim.
This particular image and resulting series was enough to win Cesare first prize in National Geographic's International Photography contest in December of last year.
Renowned for his ability to swim, Rajan and Nasru have become something of a fixture at their home on Havelock Island, which is in the Indian Ocean.
"I took the pictures during the early morning around 8am as Rajan crossed the short distance between beaches on Havelock Island," said U.S.-based Cesare.

Nasru balances on the animals tusks as the elephant took a breather on his morning swim

"I was really surprised by the speed of his legs and how he could actually swim,' said the photographer who took the images"

An elephant nicknamed Troublesome is snapped taking a drink from the pool at Etali Safari Lodge, South Africa. Susan Potgieter, owner of the lodge, said: "When I first saw the photograph of her drinking I couldn't believe it. It was something of a relief because we had been trying to work out why the pool had been draining so quickly for weeks but couldn't find a leak anywhere"
