Knife removed from Brazil man’s head after 3 years

SAO PAULO – A man in northeastern Brazil is recovering after surgeons removed a 4-inch (10-centimeter) blade that had been stuck in his head for three years following a bar fight. Edeilson Nascimento, a 29-year-old tire repairman, tells reporters Friday he is feeling great after the three-hour surgery earlier this week. He is expected to be released from a hospital in the city of Recife next week. Nascimento says he got into a bar fight in 2007 and was attacked by assailants when he returned home. At the time, doctors only removed the knife handle, fearing that pulling the blade from his head would cause brain damage. But three years of intense headaches led Nascimento to take a chance on the surgery.

San Francisco proposing ban on Happy Meal toys

Recently, Santa Clara was working towards banning toys in Happy Meals over a certain calorie count. Well, San Francisco is following suit, and their first hearing was today. Basically, if a Happy Meal exceeds limits on calories, fat, sugar and salt, it will not have a toy with it. Those with healthier options will. The idea is that kids will be more inclined to choose the healthier option to be able to get the toy. “Supervisor Eric Mar, who proposed the ban, says the toys draw children to the unhealthy meals, which in turn can contribute to childhood obesity. But officials with the restaurant industry say the proposal is an example of government regulation going too far.”
