Joao Maria de Souza, 45, had been in bed with his wife Leni when the animal fell through the ceiling of their home in Caratinga, southeast Brazil.

The cow is believed to have escaped from a nearby farm and climbed onto the roof of the couple’s house, which backs onto a steep hill on Wednesday night.

The corrugated roof immediately gave way and the one-and-a-half-ton animal fell eight feet onto Mr de Souza’s side of the bed.

Rescuers took Mr de Souza to hospital with a fractured left leg but no other obvious injuries, reporting that he was conscious and talking normally.

Hours later however he died from internal bleeding while still waiting to be seen by doctors, according to his family.

Mr de Souza’s brother-in-law Carlos Correa told Brazil’s Hoje em Dia newspaper: “Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth.

“But in my view it wasn’t the cow that killed our Joao, it was the unacceptable time he spent waiting to be examined.”

His grieving mother, Maria de Souza, told Brazil’s SuperCanal TV channel: “I didn’t bring my son up to be killed by a falling cow.”

Police in Caratinga, Minas Gerais state, have launched an inquiry into the bizarre death.

The owner of the cow could be charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Jesus Fabric Softener? Man Claims Jesus Appears in T-Shirt Fabric Softener Stain (PHOTO)

Jesus has appeared as a fabric softener stain, according to one British man in reports out this week.

Martin Andrews reportedly had an accident in which he spilled some fabric softener on his T-shirt, and the resulting stain is an image of Jesus Christ, the man resolutely claims.

However, in order to see the Son of God properly, Andrews has advised you have to turn the T-shirt upside down, and then Jesus’ face can be seen clearly.

According to Andrews, Jesus appears in the stain with his arms stretched outwards.

Others, however, have mocked Andrews claims, with some saying that the image looks more like a juggler tossing some objects in the air rather than the Messiah.

Andrews is undeterred in his claims though, and he has said, “When the T-shirt’s the right way up it doesn’t really look like anything … but when you look at it the other way up it’s really Him.”

He added, “I showed my mates at work the picture and one of them said, ‘I’ve heard you can find comfort in Jesus but you’ve found Jesus in Comfort!'”

A few other of his co-workers have insisted that the stain looks more like Fonzie from the popular TV series “Happy Days.”

This of course is not the first claim of Jesus appearing in images to people. Just earlier this year in January, an apparent image of Jesus was claimed to have manifested on the window of a Californian hotel known ironically for having many celebrity guests.

Chuck Rickman, a 911 dispatcher, took a photo of the alleged apparition on a window at the Hard Rock Hotel of San Diego on his cellphone this past weekend. The image can be found here.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Rickman explained that he was “walking downtown when out of the corner, it popped out at me.”

“It looks like someone had taken a shower and steamed up the window, but I talked with a young man nearby and he said he had seen it for several weeks,” said Rickman.

Jesse Winkler, lead pastor of Westview Church in San Diego, told The Christian Post that he felt that in general “God can do whatever he wants whenever he wants by whatever means he wants and there is nothing that can hinder him.”

“The scriptures make it clear that we live in the age of redemption whereby God is revealing the Son (Jesus) to people on the earth. He does this in both word and deed,” said Winkler.

“That means he reveals Jesus through preaching and teaching the gospel as well as works which includes the miraculous, supernatural workings of God.”

Regarding the alleged miraculous image at the Hard Rock Hotel, Winkler told CP that all such claims of images are tough given that no one is sure what the historical Jesus looked like.

“When it comes to an image of Jesus it’s tough because nobody has or knows of a true image of Jesus today. But that doesn’t mean that God can’t put an image of what people think Jesus looked like wherever he wants and use it in people’s lives however he wants,” said Winkler.

“So I believe in a limitless God that can and will use whatever means he wants to glorify Jesus and draw all people to him….Is that what he was doing in the window of Hard Rock Hotel? I don’t know. I’d ask Chuck Rickman what it meant to him.”

Stunning footage shows attacking bullfrog’s epic fail versus dragonfly

Photographer says he captured the extraordinary scene by accident

April 08, 2013 by

The New York Times recently published a story about dragonflies and how prolific the flying insects are as hunters. But what probably stood out for most readers was the jaw-dropping footage used to illustrate the piece–notably the super-slow-motion footage showing a spotted skimmer dragonfly evading a predatory leaping frog (watch as the frog believes it has scored an easy meal, only to fall into the water empty-handed).

We asked Dr. Andrew Mountcastle, the Harvard researcher who captured the footage, to share a few details about his photo session and he confessed that he chronicled the event by accident while at a city park in Seattle, filming for a project featuring insect flight.

“Eight spotted skimmers frequently hunt from perches on twigs and rocks near water, so I had focused my camera on one such perch to try to capture take-off and landing sequences,” Mountcastle explained. “As I was waiting for the dragonfly to take off, I briefly looked away, at which point I heard a splash in the water. When I looked back at the perch, the dragonfly was gone and the water underneath the perch was disturbed.

“But fortunately the camera had recorded the entire event. It wasn’t until I reviewed the video that I saw the frog had stolen the scene.”

New research, according to the New York Times, suggests that dragonflies “may well be the most brutally effective hunters in the animal kingdom.”

For example, they manage to snare prey items–flies and mosquitoes, etc.–in midair at an astonishing 95 percent success rate.

Furthermore, they’re surprisingly voracious. Stacey Combes, another Harvard researcher, once watched a dragonfly consume 30 flies in a row.

Their adeptness stems from their ability to calculate a trajectory to intercept their prey, and to adjust that trajectory as needed.

Clearly, judging by the footage, they’re masters of evasion as well.
