Former MMA Fighter and Downs Syndrome Boy’s Surprising Friendship

MMA fighters, one would expect, would come with a rather tough, almost callous mentality. After all, they live tough lives; they train like hell and essentially fight people for a living. However, for former MMA fighter-turned-coach, Sammy Callari, of Naples, Florida, his soft side shines through in this amazing little story.

When asked if he could help young Parker Seward, who has Downs syndrome, he was a little hesitant about doing so at first. For him, though, it was the best decision that he ever made. Despite lacking experience in working with someone with disabilities, he decided to try it out and see how things would go.

The Perfect Duo

“Everything just clicked from day one,” said Sammy.

They worked together on a regular basis, and Sammy instantly spotted someone with the dedication to improve and grow as a person. Indeed, Sammy even called Parker his “little bro” – how awesome is this!?

When they aren’t working out, they have a power of fun together and it ensures that both can go through the day feeling totally comfortable and happy with their workout experience. Sammy was also quite clear that this isn’t just a stunt; they genuinely get on, and share more in common than most would imagine.

A Real Friendship

“I have always had an underdog mentality of people counting me out and saying I couldn’t do something,” he said. “I almost look at him like he’s an underdog, and he can take a lot of the lessons we’ve learned from everyday life and in our gym sessions, and that will help him build a solid foundation as he becomes a young man.” Sammy explained.

A really funny kid with a great identity and a personality that just beams positivity, Sammy has found himself a great little workout companion and a friend for life.

“I want to grow up and be a policeman and pull Sammy over!” Parker explained, too!

What a kid! Sammy was also very open, though, that Parker could be a wonderful example to all.
“He can do the same things that any other little boy or girl can do,” Callari said, “I think just by showing that he can do it in the gym and in our daily life, that it can give (others) the motivation that, ‘Hey, if Parker can do this, why can’t I?’”

It’s a wonderful tale of inspiring kindness from someone who could easily have said “no” to the request. Well done to Sammy and definitely well done to Parker, who is showing nothing in life has to hold us back if we don’t let it.

Dread-inducing Signs Exposing the Truth About Climate Change

Depending on who you listen to, climate change is either an impending ecological disaster we’re all ignoring or a scam made up by companies to keep someone somewhere down. However, they say a picture tells a thousand words, right?

Here’s an example of just some images that show the horrifying destruction that climate change is having on the world around us. It’s not just the reams of data about rising sea levels, glaciers and arctic ice melting away, heat waves, water droughts and weird weather storms; it’s about what’s going on elsewhere.

The Great Barrier Reef

This is one of the most common and terrifying examples of the damage being done to the world. The Great Barrier Reef has been falling apart for some time, with over 2,900 reefs and 900 islands making up the largest coral reef system in the world. As you can see from the images above, it is – or was – a beautiful place.

Now, take a look at this image below.

How could we let things get so bad? We’ve managed to destroy over 1,400 miles of natural wonderment. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it looks like we might have just killed off a fairy-tale if these harrowing images of the before and after are anything to go by.

With over two third of the great barrier reef gone, the change to try and save it looks to have passed. They are dying out, and in 2017 the Nature journal produced a harrowing obituary for what was once a symbol of the thriving life beyond land.

The Alps

Think it’s just tropical parts of the world that are falling into disrepair? Think again. Take a look at this photo of the alps from back in the day – how wonderful and full it looks. With millions of years of history and no signs that they ever wound up as bad as they are today, it’s hard to see the changing of the Alps as ‘just nature’ as many skeptics claim.

As you can see from the image above, the damage to the Alps is far worse than we could ever have imagined. These once stunning 13,000ft regions have become extensively damaged, nothing like the amazing scenes they once were.

It’s expected that with a 2-degree temperature rise in 120 years, we could see another 2-degree rise in just 40 years. This is dreadfully worrying, and shows how much damage we are doing to the world. Not only are the glaciers beginning to sink, but it means that the heat is reflecting off the smaller glaciers meaning it will heat up the planet even more…creating a terrifying prospect for trying to stop nature.

Add in the fact that people worry that ancient pathogens from some of the worst times in human history could be released too, and the sign of the Alps and the Great Barrier Reef falling into such horrible disrepair should do something to help you see the immense damage the world is undergoing at present.

If we don’t do something soon, these kind of natural wonders will become consigned to history books read in oxygen pods as the world is gradually destroyed by our own inaction. It’s time for change.

Depending on who you listen to, climate change is either an impending ecological disaster we’re all ignoring or a scam made up by companies to keep someone somewhere down. However, they say a picture tells a thousand words, right?

Delivery Driver’s Dedication Brings Out The Ultimate Kindness In His Co-workers

For over a year, 19-year-old Derrick Taylor would get up and begin work as a delivery driver, taking a 10-mile walk to begin a shift at 4AM at the UPS Customer Center in Oxford, Alabama.

Doing a full days’ work loading and managing the UPS vans, Taylor would then make that same horrible walk home himself. Having been in work since the age of 14 to support his mother, Taylor has never let anything stop him from doing his duty as a good son and a fine man.

Always too proud to accept the help offered by colleagues or take money from his siblings, Taylor made that incredible walk every day for over a year. He instead uses all his money to care for his mother and pay the bills as she cannot. Despite owning a drivers’ license, Taylor couldn’t afford to buy a car.

One Amazing Gift

Thankfully, the good people at the UPS Center he worked in decided to chip in and get their friend and co-worker a car. Buying him a wonderful Cherokee Jeep, they presented it to Taylor and, as you can imagine, he didn’t know what to do. Someone so proud was used to doing it all on his own, and likely thought nobody noticed his dedication and drive.

Despite that gruelling walk, he would put in a top shift every day in work and try his hardest to make sure the job was done right. That work ethic rubbed off on his colleagues, who wanted to help him have an easier time of it in the future.

At $1,100, it was a lot of money for everyone to club together and get him a car – but they did, and good on them. What a wonderful, kind gesture. As his colleagues handed him the keys to the car, he struggled to hold it together and was overwhelmed by appreciation.

Easier From Here On Out

Despite all of that hardship, he never once shed tears or let it get to him – this, though, was an act of kindness he’d never have before in life. Now, he can both get to work without all that stress and he can help out his mother even more – what a little legend.

Having slaved away five days a week to help make ends meet and never once asked for help or whined, this feels like a fine karmic reward for someone so selfless and kind. We salute your kindness and your wonderful drive to do better by your mother. His first trip of course was to an insurance company; getting insurance for the car!

You Will Never Believe How This Groom Exposed His Cheating Wife…

Your wedding is supposed to be the most amazing day of your life. Where nothing else matters; you have joined together in union with your loved one – you finally have the one. It’s the moment that nearly everyone dreams of – the big

.

 

However, when you’ve been doing a bit of the dirty on the side, the whole ‘together forever’ thing becomes a little confusing. Entering into an affair with someone more or less destroys every vow you make at a wedding.

When we find out that the one we love has broken that trust, reactions vary. Most leave, others go out and do a bit of damage themselves. Some people, though, turn downright savage. They get ready to bottle it up and to keep one particular moment to drive it home that they know.

From burning stuff to fights on the street, we’ve seen it all in life and in media. People go NUTS when they find out about cheating – and rightly so. This one, though? Christ.

The Craziest Revenge of All

Some people are content to wait until the big day, play it out all that time, just waiting, get the bride in front of all her family friends and then play a video of her cheating. A Singaporean couple were getting together to get married, and the big day had been going perfectly; much laughter, happiness and good spirit.

Friends, family, loved ones and colleagues all together at once. Apparently, according to Zaobao, a local media source, everyone had gathered to watch a video together. It started with the couple happy and together, enjoying themselves. Then, new footage appears – camera footage of the bride entering a hotel room with another guy. Knowing she was rumbled, the bride sprints out the room and runs away.

The Investigation

Apparently, the groom is a well-off businessman and hired a private detective to trail his wife after expecting she was messing around. Known as Ms Zhuo, of the AJAX Investigation and Security Services firm, the agent carried out the necessary duties and found that the suspicions were right.

Following the bride to be or six weeks, she noticed her meeting up with another guy and then caught footage of the second meeting, things changed. Speaking to Zaobao, Zhuo explained.

“They went up to the room together, but one of them left first before the other. However, they both came out of the same room.”

While they could have been doing anything in there, it hardly looks good. Some, though, think it’s a touch too vindictive and could have been handled without ruining her personal and professional integrity.

What do you think? Was it too much?

Heroic Couple Refuse to Leave Dogs Behind During Flood

Recently, we’ve seen a lot of heart-warming scenes as people stick around for their pets in times of chaos. Many families refuse to leave behind their animal companions even in the face of impending danger. Joso, Japan, was sadly hit with brutal flash floods in 2016 – neighborhoods were smashed to pieces as the water raged.

The Surprising Companion

Like many couples, the family had seen their home ravaged by the storm. Climbing to the roof in a bid to be rescued after seeing large portions of their home flushed away, a helicopter came along. The pilot, experienced and capable, managed to get the helicopter to the home despite the conditions – but was surprised to find they had a dog as a companion.

Despite the immense danger of the situation, and with the chance of the home coming away at any point, the rescue team draped down to help pick everyone up. Finding his footing on the least steady ground you can imagine, the rescuer soon realised the job was much harder than he thought. Saving three was going to be a major challenge – but four?

A Challenging Rescue

Attaching the woman to the harness first, and then return for the husband. Hooking them up and getting them onto the helicopter quickly – albeit with a few moments of challenge – the rescuer team returned for the husband as the floods began to worsen.

Lowered onto the roof, he made his way across to help the husband – and the dog, of course – get attached to the harness and make their escape. Despite the ticking time bomb of the situation, they managed to get up and away before the home was torn to shreds by the elements.

They only just escaped the impending damage to the home, and a moment’s hesitation would have meant a much more tragic end. Thankfully, everyone survived and while their loss was immense, there was still the prize of making sure everyone escaped without injury.

Do you think you could go that extra mile to keep your pet safe?

Brian Smith from Kansas City, Missouri, doesn’t stop at saying he wants to help, but he saw his good will through by giving a hand to an individual when he could. He inspired thousands of people with the way he passionately assisted a young boy in need.

School Boy in Need Of Help

One morning, a young student went from door to door thumping and looking for assistance from his neighbors. Three individuals declined to help and totally disregarded him. Fortunately for this child, Brian Smith isn’t any normal individual.

She Stopped Him From Taking His Life, And Now She’s His Wife

When Kevin Walsh received the phone call that stopped him from taking his own life ten years ago, he never expected that the person who was on the other line would one day end up his wife.

Walsh went through a very difficult depression when he was in his teens, at only 17 years old he had decided that he had enough. His girlfriend had broken his heart, his dog died the day of his prom, these external circumstances coupled with depression which caused him to feel isolated from those around him, led him to the only conclusion he thought would help, committing suicide.

The Phone Call That Saved His Life

“I was probably somewhere between 5 to 10 seconds away from taking my own life,” Kevin tells Inside Edition, he had no idea who was on the other line, since the number was private.

He went on to say that he paused in his plans to find out who was on the other end of the line at that pivotal time, “I thought, if there’s a semblance of eternity, I cannot spend it wondering who was on the other end of that phone call, When I picked up and heard the voice, I knew it was her.”

And who was she?

A friend Blake whom Kevin had met during Bible camp a couple of months before. They had started their casual friendship when Blake made a cheeky comment about Kevin’s gothic fashion choice stating, “Black is a good color on you”. Although they were friends, Blake had never called Kevin before. What made her pick up that phone on that specific day during that specific time is a pure miracle.

After a pretty normal conversation, Kevin confessed to Blake what he was about to go through. She spoke him out of it in the spot, and with her support, he managed to get through those suicidal thoughts.

Blake, regarding that conversation, told People Magazine her view, “Knowing his personality, he’s very analytical, and I knew if he had ended up at that point, he had taken all the steps to get there and he wasn’t doing it for attention,” she continued stating This was something he was going to do, and I’m very grateful that I picked up because if I hadn’t, he wouldn’t be here now.”

Their Bond Grew Stronger

The two remained friends for years after, their relationship growing day by day until finally, last year, Kevin confessed his love and proposed soon after with a black diamond- one that reminds both of the comment Blake made to him the very first day they met.

The couple encourages others who are going through a similar thing as Kevin was, to speak out and express their pain. Talk to someone,” Blake says. “Saying things out loud gives it life, it lets “you evaluate things in a different way than texting or writing. It applies a different layer of emotion

The two wed in September 2016 and have both come so far together, supporting each other through everything.

Why The Government Will Pay You to Live in This Eerie Town

When something sounds too good, it usually is. So, when I hear about a government-sponsored volunteer position in the historic town of Garnet, Montana, with free room, free board, a stipend for meals and ample time to explore the Montana wilderness, something must be up.

And of course, there is a catch. It happens to be that this peaceful and quiet small town in the middle of nowhere has a bigger problem than lack of WIFI or running water- this town is known as the most notorious ghost town in the country.

Paranormal Activity

Back in the day Garnet was a frontier mining town, however after it was abandoned in the 1940’s, the residents started to dwindle. But some stayed, and there are claims that these ghosts of the past are still roaming around today.

It’s widely reported by the residents of town that there are eerie piano sounds coming from inside the old saloon late at night as well as distant voices. The theory goes that after sundown, former resident come out to get on with what used to be their daily activity.

Other bizarre claims by the locals is the belief that ghosts hide in the shadows of the town, and transparent figures are spotted walking through buildings. While there is not definite proof and nothing captured on camera, even hearing how locals describe the freaky goings-on in this ghost town is enough to scare many people off.

Overwhelming Response

But some proved that their desire to experience Garnet is greater than their fear of the ghosts that live there too. In fact, the response to the volunteer position was so overwhelming that the Bureau is no longer accepting any applicants for the position which includes volunteering in the tourist shop and giving guided tours. Who knows, maybe between the tours and exploring the town we will finally get some paranormal activity proof!

Ghost Town #2

While Garnet is the most well-known Ghost town in the united Stated, it’s by no means the only one. on a small gravel road in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park there is place known as Elkmont Tennessee.

Elkmont

Although this resort town was once full of tourists and hustle-bustle, it has since been totally abandon. No more are the thriving neighborhoods, nor the resorts hosting all the visitors. Some believe it is the reports of weird and paranormal activity that scared the townspeople away. To make things even more freaky, Elkmont is the only place on planet Earth that has a rare species of fireflies that flash their lights in sync. If that isn’t as close to paranormal as you get I don’t know what it!

Although both places sound fascinating, and although I don’t believe in things like ghosts and transparent figures wandering through buildings, I would still pass on the generous offer of setting up shop in Garnet. Living in a ghost town, even for disbelievers like me, is not the way I would want to spend my summer. But kudos to the brave out there!

Meet the Youngest Girl to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

At age 8 my greatest achievement was beading myself a bracelet. At age 8, Miss Roxy Getter’s greatest achievement is hiking up a mountain 19,431 foot tall. Talk about an over achiever.

Roxy Getter is officially the youngest girl to ever climb Kilimanjaro, and only one year older than the youngest boy to climb the mountain. Along with her brother Ben who is 10 years old, and their parents, the whole family recently did the trek together after Roxy decided this challenge was the top of her bucket list.

To be prepared for the hike the family would take trips to various stadiums and climb up and down the stairs. Climbing seems to be in the family’s genes. Before moving  to Florida , they used to live in Arizona where the Getter clan would often take hiking trips.

Overcoming It All

What makes Ben and Roxy that much more special is the fact that both were born with a hereditary heart disease. One that made their parents fear would disable them from acting like the normal, fun-loving kids around them. But boy where they wrong. Clearly the Getter kids reach for the stars regardless of any physical limitation.

Although both had to be cleared by a cardiologist before they began their record-breaking trek, despite the freezing temperatures, steep ascent and harsh conditions, these two came out better than ever

Their Biggest Fan

Their mother, Sarah Getter is her children’s biggest fan. Probably the coolest mother around, Sarah was excited about her little daredevils wish to climb Kilimanjaro, and readily joint in the fun alongside her children and husband. She gushes about the way Roxy and Ben reached their goals:

“They were amazing. They did not complain. They just kept going one step in front of the other. They actually kept us going, I think with their positive attitude,” Sarah proudly boasts of her two children. “When we got to the top, we just started tearing up. They were in front of us walking, and we both just held hands.”

However, Roxy, in a video she recorded after completing day one of the ascent admits it’s harder than it looks:

“I made it up and that was hard. I was so tired. I could barely even walk.”

Despite it being difficult along the way, these two daredevils have only just begun their adventures. Their trip to Tanzania, Africa to climb Mount Kilimanjaro is only the first of many more to come, promises a brave Roxy. And we can’t wait to follow this family’s adventures!

Rekindling Their Romance After 70 Years: How He Got Her to Say “I Do”

For Ed Sellers, it seems it’s never too late to rekindle a teenage romance. The 88-year-old refused to let his teenage sweetheart, Katie Smith, 89, be the one that got away. 70 years after these two first dated, Seller plucked up the courage and gave Smith a call. Well, gave Smith multiple calls as she was not answering at first. But Seller would not give up, and boy did it pay off!

Rekindling a Romance

Before that phone call, the last time this pair had spoken was way back in the 1940’s when Seller was 14 and Smith 15. They were neighbors in North Carolina. They dated for three years but, since Smith came from a very religious family, all their dates were strictly chaperoned and took place in her living room. Because of these conditions, their relationship came to an end and each one went their separate ways, marrying and having lives of their own. They each did very well and raised beautiful family, but a series of events would ultimately lead these two together. Sadly, Smiths husband died 17 years ago form cancer and Seller’s wife, Dot, succumbed to the Alzheimer’s disease and died four years ago.

A while later, Seller realized it was not too late for a new love, and drove 40 miles from his home to Smith’s neighborhood to search for her contact details. But Smith was not an easy catch. Much like her old ways, Smith is still religious and it took Seller a year and a half of driving down to Smith’s home, (he still never slept over because they were not yet married) before he convinced her to be with him.

Still Playing Hard-To-Get

Smith jokes that he asked her to marry him more times than the amount of fingers and toes he had! But eventually the hard-work paid off. as Smith recalls: ““He got down on his knees and brought me a diamond, I reckon I must have said yes!”

A Wedding and a Half

Their wedding ceremony could not have been cuter! Each sat on a rocking chair and said their vows surrounded by their friends and family who came to support the couple. They were sure to mention and pay respect to their late spouses as they did not want to dishonor them in any way.
The couple seem to have found love and companionship once again so late in their lives.

While Seller says, “She’s a beautiful lady, easy to get along with, and we’re very compatible with one another,” Smith adorably states that Seller is the same gentleman he was all those years ago when she first knew him, claiming “He treats me like a queen.”

Let’s all hope we find such pure love in our lifetime!

DiCaprio’s new fling- The Actors continues his modelizer ways

I am a huge Sex and the City fan. Despite that the show has been over for quite some time, I still find nothing more satisfying than binging on these juicy episodes after a long day. And although the plot is sometimes far-fetched, every now and then something happens in real life which bears a striking similarity to the lives of Carrie and her crew. Today has got me thinking of season one, episode two, ‘models and mortals’. In this episode, the girls lament the crazy trend of guys out there who will ONLY date models, and while that sounds kind of shallow and ridiculous, it seems we have our own modelizer in the flesh: Leonardo DiCaprio.

Only Models

Yup, this ridiculously talented actor is also ridiculously talented at keeping his dating track record ‘model only’ or as close to model as possible. Just last week DiCaprio was seen riding around New York with his most recent speculated fling Lorena Rae, a young German model. They were seen riding peacefully along the New York roads, and while paparazzi and armed security followed ensuite, it does seem as close to a ‘normal date’ as you get when it comes to Leo.

But normal is a hard word to use when describing the actors dating history. DiCaprio is known for his specific dating tastes, being that she must either be, or be fitting to be a Victoria Secret Angel. In fact, he has dated a total of ten Victoria Secret models in his time. DiCaprio, now 41, is also known for dating women far younger than him, usually in their 20’s. While some claim his dating, habits are every man’s dream, others claim it simply points out an extensive list of failed relationships and loneliness.

Chronicles of predetermined failures?

However it could also be that his relationships with his string of beauties is mutually beneficial: they get to be seen with a famous actor, and he gets to be seen with a beautiful woman on his arm. But is there something deeper going on? Amongst those of a sadder opinion is relationship guru Dr. Gilda Crale who coined DiCaprio a “modelizer”, which is someone who pursues fantasy women knowing it will probably not work out.

Some of the women on the list of Leo’s conquests are Victoria Secret models Gisele Bündchen, Israeli beauty Bar Refaeli, American model Kelly Rohrbach and some beautiful actresses like Blake Lively. However, all these women, regardless of the fact that the relationships came to an end had only warm things to say about DiCaprio. Such as Bündchen who claimed, “We were just not meant to be boyfriend and girlfriend, but I respect him enormously and I wish him nothing but the best.”

While Carrie Bradshaw would insist DiCaprio’s ways are the route problem of all the normal looking girls in the world, you’ve got to admit that The actor, with millions and millions in his bank account, and movies like Titanic, The Aviator and The Great Gatsby in his pocket, certainly does make a great catch. That is assuming he ever decides on being caught for good.
