Couple Escapes Wildfire by Taking Shelter in Pool For 6 Hours
"John, 70, and Jan Pascoe, 65, were not sure what to do as the fires encroached. Then they remembered their neighbor had a pool. The California couple escaped the wildfires raging around them by jumping in the pool and staying in the water for 6 hours. It was pitch black as they watched everything burn to the ground around them."

Incredible story of survival and smart thinking! This is quite devastating with at least 31 dead, 100,000 evacuated, and more than 10,000 firefighters battling the fires.

“The ultimate aim of martial arts is not having to use them”

There is much more to martial arts than learning to kick and punch. If all that your instructor is teaching you is how to fight, you need to find a better instructor. True martial arts are about learning to live the warrior lifestyle. If you are learning anything less, you are being short-changed.

MeTro – Elastic Hydrogel for Surgical Applications
"MeTro (methacryloyl-substituted tropoelastin) is a highly elastic and adhesive surgical hydrogel that can seal wounds without the need for sutures. MeTro sets in just 60 seconds once treated with UV light, and can be modified to determine how long the sealant lasts. The solution was successfully tested on the arteries and lungs of rodents and the lungs of pigs. "

Seals it immediately.

Giant Straw Animals Invade Japanese Fields After Rice Harvest And They Are Absolutely Badass
"Fall is a season of harvesting, and festivals to celebrate it are currently taking place all over the world. In Northern Japan, the Wara Art Festival recently rang in the September-October rice season, and it’s a wildly inventive and fun way to repurpose rice straw left over from the harvest."

That's pretty cool!!!

Group Photo at the 16th Manjiro Festival
This was taken on the front lawn (where we did our Ryukyu Kobujutsu demo) of the Unitarian Memorial Church complex. We're standing in front of the Harrop Center which was the former parsonage of the Unitarian Society. We had a great time! The events coordinator spoke to me after our performance and she was so glad we were able to represent Ryukyu Kobujutsu as one of five martial arts groups at the festival.

The One-Armed Boxer - Full Documentary "The Greek"
_'... "The Greek" is a documentary telling the story of Vaggelis Chatzis, the only one-armed professional boxer in the world. Because of a cancerous tumor, Chatzis had to be amputated and lose his right arm when he was 3 months. Against all odds, he grew up to become a professional fighter in the ultimate underdog real-life story. ...'

I liked what he said at 11:10: "I feel more proud about who I am and what I have compared to what I don't have."
