Olympic Hearts of Gold

Abbey D’Agostino and Nikki Hamblin didn’t win any medals at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, but they showed the world they have hearts of gold. The U.S. and New Zealand runners were competing in the 5,000-meter qualifying heat last week when Hamblin accidentally clipped D’Agostino, causing both women to tumble. D’Agostino got up, but rather than run off, she helped the dazed New Zealander to her feet. The pair raced on, but D’Agostino had injured her leg and fell again. Hamblin helped the American up, giving away her medal chances, and the athletes crossed the finish line together. “I’m never going to forget that moment,” said Hamblin.

"Go" to Jail

THE WEEK magazine printed that it was a bad week for crooks with smartphones. It seems that the Manchester, New Hampshire police department announced it had found one of the rarest Pokemon Go characters-Charizard- in its headquarters, and invited a list of 500 people to catch it. All 500 are wanted fugitives!
