Just like Batkid before her, a girl stricken with cancer is getting her wish to help a city in need Sept. 28.
With the Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference deemed missing, Edmonton police can only turn to SpiderMable, a six-year-old with a wish to be a super hero as she nears the end of her leukemia treatment.
A whole bunch of people, officials, the media and even Ference's family has come together to let #SpiderMable join up as Spider-Man's side kick and tackle the criminal underbelly that is terrorizing Edmonton.
Six-year-old Mable Tooke is battling crime across Edmonton Monday, under the guise of a Spider-Mable alter-ego she adopted in her two-year fight with leukemia.
As Mable nears the end of her cancer treatment, the Children's Wish Foundation is staging a day-long superhero adventure across Edmonton, with the ultimate goal of rescuing Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference, who has been kidnapped by an evil villain.
Organizers say the idea was inspired by cancer survivor Miles Scott, also known as "Batkid," who gained international attention after thousands of volunteers helped transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day in 2013.
You think you've seen and heard it all, Harry Potter fan. Well, you are wrong.
You must check out this Indian version of some of the most notable songs from the Harry Potter movies. It's really something striking that makes the whole of John Williams' themes seem even more magical.
According to the video's description:
This Indian fusion covers five beautiful scores from the Harry Potter Movie Series-
A Window To The Past : Harry Potter and the Prisoners of Askaban,Harry Potter Main Theme, Hedwig's Theme : Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Face of Voldemort : Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Epilogue - Leaving Hogwarts : Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
The Indian Jam Project is a collaborative platform where different musicians come together to play Indian Adaptations of Western TV Show Theme Songs/ Movie Scores. The adaptations are arranged and composed by Tushar Lall (Founder), and are performed together with some insanely talented set of musicians.
Remember Dismaland? That Banksy driven artistic bizarro Disneyland that promised a downer of a time for anyone who wanted to be bathed in meditations on the distractions of a morose, capitalist world? That one?
Well, it recently closed. But that doesn't mean the end for the materials that hosted tens of thousands on the western shores of England.
This camp was set up in April after the previous "Jungle camp" was demolished. It has a day centre that provides shower facilities and offers migrants one meal a day. However, aid workers say they are being overwhelmed by the numbers of people coming, mainly from east Africa, the Middle East and Afghanistan, and conditions in the rest of the site are desperate.
...Women make up around 10% of the camp's population but have gone largely unnoticed, in part because early arrivals were secluded in a heavily guarded camp for women and children, but its 100 beds filled up long ago. Efforts are being made to set up a separate classroom to serve around 200 women - many of whom feel uncomfortable attending classes with male students they don't know - and their two dozen children.
Seems like a good use for a large scale piece of art. But hopefully, this doesn't make its way down there:
Police were helped in their investigation by the clear images showing John Mogan and Ashley Duboe hamming it up with their fortune in greenbacks. Four days after the robbery, they began posting photos of their loot, and one friend complained that Mogan " didn't hook a brother up."
Mogan and Duboe were arrested this week for the August 24 robbery. Police say they gave a note to the teller in the Ashville bank, and walked out with a tall stack of bills. He looks nervous on the surveillance video, but in the days after the heist, they both looked gleeful on their Facebook postings.
Apparently, Morgan had just gotten out of state prison for an earlier bank robbery. He put on make up to disguise his face and neck tattoos. But sadly, nothing could disguise his stupidity.
