Mark's newsblock week 12

Knocked off by a kangaroo
25-year-old man David Striegl was knocked unconscious by a kangaroo on the Mount Ainslie nature reserve in the Australian capital Canberra on Thursday. He received cuts and bruises and a black eye after being scratched and hit by the kangaroo. Mount Ainslie is located near the centre of the Australian capital, with Australia's parliament houses designed to be viewed from the top of the mountain. He does not remember much about the incident, only that he turned around and saw the kangaroo which hit him in the face. He said that the kangaroo scratched him at first then guessed that it must have hit him which caused him to lose consciousness. He was taken to hospital by a motorist who was passing by. At the hospital he was given x-rays and a tetanus shot before being discharged. Injuries from kangaroos in Australia are rare, and it is almost unheard of for someone to be knocked out by one. This attack comes a year after a kangaroo crashed through a window of a house in Canberra before rampaging through the house.

You fail at tossing
A woman is accused of throwing her year-old son into her SUV in a failed attempt to stop the vehicle from being repossessed in Dallas. Krystal Gardner of Tool was jailed Wednesday on bail of nearly $3,800 on charges including child endangerment related to abandonment, no driverís license and no insurance. Electronic records at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center did not list an attorney for the 28-year-old mother, who was booked Monday. Recovery agent Luke Ross told KTVT-TV that he was in the Ford Expedition when he saw Gardner toss the baby through an open window. He says the baby landed on the seat ďlike a kid bouncing on a bed.Ē

Hey kid, your manager is arrested!
Justin Beiberís manager was arrested on March 24th in Long Island, N.Y. in connection with the pop singerís appearance last November at a local mall. Scott Braun, 28, surrendered today and will be arraigned on charges of reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance. According to police, when the crowd at Bieberís mall appearance became unruly, it took Braun 1.5 hours to send two Twitter messages that the event had been canceled, though his lawyer said it took seven minutes. Braun faces up to a year in prison if convicted. Police also arrested a vice president at Bieberís record label.

Blue M&M dye may mend broken backs
The compound Brilliant Blue G blocks a chemical that kills healthy spinal cord cells around the damaged area - an event that often causes more irreversible damage than the original injury. BBG not only reduced the size of the lesion but also improved the recovery of motor skills, tests on rats showed. Those treated with BBG were later able to walk, although with a limp. Rats that did not receive the BBG solution never regained the ability to walk. On the downside, the treatment causes the skin to temporarily turn bright blue and BBG needs to be injected soon after the trauma. The test injections were given within 15 minutes. They discovered that adenosine triphosphate (ATP) - a chemical that keeps our cells alive - quickly pours into the area surrounding a spinal cord injury. More tests will be needed to prove the safety of BBG before human clinical trials can begin, but researchers are optimistic new treatments for acute spinal cord injuries could emerge in the next few years.
