Já ouviu falar em Zeus? Confira a história da coruja cega que ficou famosa na internet nas últimas semanas por ter os olhos cheios que “estrelas”:
Embora a boa visão seja uma das características mais marcantes das corujas, o bichinho que você vai conhecer hoje é uma exceção a esse caso. Batizado de Zeus, a pequena coruja foi encontra ferida, em uma varanda, na Califórnia e encaminhada a um veterinário.
Acontece que a sorte do animal mudou a partir de então. Isso porque seus olhos, que deveriam ser seu maior defeito, se revelaram uma verdadeira obra de arte. Como você vai ver nas imagens, os olhinhos arredondados da coruja reproduzem um céu estrelado, tomado por um azul profundo e pequenos pontinhos luminosos.
De acordo com o especialista que examinou a coruja, Zeus sofre de catarata capsular e as manchas brancas e brilhantes são um efeito desse problema. Aliás, conforme explicou o veterinário, elas são causadas por coágulos de fibrina, pigmentos de sangue que causam essa aparência nos olhinhos do bicho. Além disso, foi diagnosticado que a coruja conta apenas com 10% da visão, o que a torna incapaz de voltar para a natureza.
Zeus foi acolhido por uma equipe especializada e agora vive no Centro de Aprendizagem e Vida Selvagem, em Sylmar, na Califórnia. Sua maior ocupação, a partir de então, tem sido fazer pose para as fotos que estão correndo a internet.
A recent encounter with the lotion ladies could be the beginning of my holiday spirit. That would mean it’s super early this year.
I was at Walgreens, my favorite putzing around convincing myself I need Tic Tacs store, looking for a new lotion. The lotion I currently use is too expensive and I’m tired of spending that kind of money. I’m not really sure it even works all that well. Lately, I’m taking stock in the things I buy, especially products. I’m trying to figure out if I spend money on them because someone told me they were the best, or if they really are the best. I’m looking at the products my grandparents used, seeing if maybe simple is better.
Anyway, I’m standing in the lotion aisle when this woman comes around the corner with her mother who is pushing the cart. She gives me sort of a nasty look and says, “Come…

I’m going to call you Sparrow, cool? Cool. You have the cutest little face with such dark black eyes. And well, you sort of flew into our lives.
My mind was full of thoughts during my labor with you. In fact, my mind was full even up until the end, when I birthed you. Frankly, it complicated things. Probably not the last time I’m stuck in my own head when I should just be taking your lead.
Mostly, I was full of questions about who you were going to be. How can I simultaneously feel such a deep sense of knowing you, without ever having laid eyes on your face? Even at three weeks old I don’t now much about you. I don’t know if you’ll be reserved or boisterous, funny or serious. I don’t know what your struggles and triumphs will be.
What do I know? Well…

DNA tests have confirmed that the child held by Lebanese authorities is the daughter of the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Lebanon’s Interior Minister Nohad Machnouk told domestic television channel MTV that the child’s mother is believed to have married to al-Baghdadi six years ago for a period of three months, the BBC reports.
The Iraqi government had said she was not married to the Islamist leader.
The woman, identified as Saja al-Dulaimi, tried to enter Lebanon over a week ago accompanied by two sons and a daughter when she was detained by border guards.
Machnouk claims al-Dulaimi is pregnant but the child is not al-Baghdadi’s.
“We conducted DNA tests on her and the daughter, which showed she was the mother of the girl, and that the girl is [al-Baghdadi’s] daughter, based on DNA from Baghdadi from Iraq,” Machnouk told MTV.
