Winner of the Day!

Folks, we are going to make Emily Overholt our "Winner of the day" in spite of being disqualified during a swim meet at the Pan Am Games!

Canada’s streak of gold medals in the Pan American Games pool halted Thursday with a disqualification.
 Emily Overholt of West Vancouver, B.C., out-touched Caitlin Leverenz of the U.S. to finish first in the women’s 400 individual medley, but the youngest member of the Canadian swim team was disqualified for a “non-simultaneous” wall touch during the breaststroke leg of the race.
Swimming Canada appealed the disqualification, but it was upheld by officials.

The reason she's still a winner? Because the woman showed a lot of class in accepting her defeat, and we would love to show you the video, but the CBC isn't letting anyone else use it!!

Get a load of THIS, bunky!

Scientists are currently cultivating a marine plant that's packed with more nutrients than the trendy green superfood kale. 

And it naturally tastes like bacon.

Bacon-flavored crackers. 

Bacon-flavored salad dressing. 

These are just some of the savory treats that have been created so far using the domesticated strain of dulse (Palmaria palmata), a kind of red algae, or seaweed, that typically grows in the waters along northern Pacific and Atlantic coastlines.

Officials say a propeller has fallen off a single-engine plane and sliced through the roof of a home in upstate New York. The Daily Gazette of Schenectady reports the owners of the home in the Montgomery County hamlet of Hagaman were out when the accident occurred around 2 p.m. ET Thursday.

 Calgary man charged with kicking puppy like a football: 

– A Calgary man has been charged with animal cruelty for allegedly kicking a puppy in an attack n a school field.o
Erin Tajiri says her five-month-old Corgi-mini/Australian Shepherd puppy named Lil-E was leashed and tied to a lawn chair while she was playing in a softball game at Father Lacombe High School.
Tajiri says a man walking across the field approached and the puppy stood waiting, wagging her tail in excitement.

But she says the man started running toward Lil-E and suddenly kicked her as though she were a football.
Witness Kim Ehrhardt says when he was confronted, the man said “dogs have no feelings.”
Lil-E had to have emergency surgery to reattach a piece of her shoulder blade that was broken off in the attack.
(REMEMBER THIS GUYS NAME!) John Kueth-Teny, 40, has been charged with injuring an animal without lawful cause. If convicted, the accused could face up to five years in jail or a fine of up to $10,000.
In an effort to assist with Lil-E’s veterinary bills, a GoFundMe crowdfunding account was created. As of Thursday afternoon, donations have exceeded the organizer’s $5,000 fundraising goal.
