Anthony Omari used to take care of orphans at the Faraja Children’s home in Kibera. The home by then housed over 37 orphans. On that fateful night, thieves managed to access the room where Antony was sleeping and took away his belongings. They then proceeded to where the children were sleeping, however, Mr. Omari opted to protect the children by hitting one of the attackers with a hammer. The thugs replayed by slicing open his face with a machete.

The Irukandji jellyfish (/ɪrəˈkændʒi/ irr-ə-KAN-jee) are any of several similar, extremely venomous species of rare jellyfish. With a very small adult size of about a cubic centimetre (1 cm3), they are both the smallest and one of the most venomous jellyfish in the world. They inhabit the northern marine waters of Australia. They fire their stingers into their victim, causing a condition known in humans as Irukandji syndrome, which can be fatal. There are about 16 known species of Irukandji, of which Carukia barnesi, Malo kingi, Malo maxima, Malo filipina and Malo bella are the best known.

One of the park's quartz-sandstone pillars, the 1,080-metre (3,540 ft)[citation needed] Southern Sky Column, was officially renamed "Avatar Hallelujah Mountain" (Chinese: 阿凡达-哈利路亚山; pinyin: Āfándá hālìlùyà shān) in honor of the movie Avatar in January 2010.[4] The film's director and production designers said that they drew inspiration for the floating rocks from mountains from around the world, including those in Hunan province.

Every minute counts for an emergency transplant. Checking flights from Verona (closest airport to Padua) the shortest flight is roughly 3-1/2 hours depending on day of the week and departure time. It's roughly 70kms from Padua to Verona so add another 30-60 minutes to the flight time.

Amazing too, the Lam has Polizia i.d.

Must be a rich district to afford that as a police vehicle. :200:
