Shohei Ono made two of his first three opponents cry when he returned to judo at the Tokyo Olympics after 18 mysterious months away. Loud, body-shaking sobs emanated from the men who had to walk behind Ono in defeat through the otherwise hushed halls of the Budokan, giving voice to the anguish of extraordinary athletes whose lifetimes of preparation had still left them unequipped to survive four minutes against Japan's elusive judo superstar. Turkey's Bilal Çiloğlu, the world's No. 9 lightweight, screamed and put his fists to his head after Ono pinned him helplessly to the tatami for an ippon, his wails echoing down the corridors.

Einstein’s website, einsteinparrot.com is designed to inform you about the care of parrots and also entertain you. Living with a parrot is a big commitment. Parrots live a very long time. A parrot such as Einstein can live to be 50 or 60 years old. They all require a lot of care, proper nutrition, training, time, and patience. Parrots need a lot of attention and lots of toys and activities to keep from being bored. Parrots are also expensive, a large cage is an investment, and plenty of play perches to spend out of cage time. Specialized veterinarian care is also required. Most of all they require your companionship and a forever home. Many people decide after the first few years of parrot ownership that the responsibility is too great and the parrots become neglected and sometimes abandoned. When that happens they are sent to parrot rescue facilities to be adopted by a new family or some spend their lives in sanctuaries. It is often said, “Having a parrot is much like raising a raising a 2 to a 3-year-old child for the rest of your life!”
This hairy woodpecker has flown into a glass window and badly stunned herself. Luckily for her, the window that she chose to fly into belongs to a veterinarian. She received a quick examination and it appeared that she had no obvious injuries. She was limp and had laboured breathing. This can be a sign of internal injuries. It's also possible that birds can sustain wing or spine injuries with such collisions. The first thing that the veterinarian did was to check for bleeding and signs of broken bones. The little bird was then placed in a box with ventilation and a soft towel under her. She was given a heat pad and placed in a quiet, dark room for several hours. After a brief rest, the woodpecker was mobile again. It appeared that she would be fine without further treatment. The bird was taken outside to an area with lots of trees so she could quickly seek shelter. The moment she was free to fly, she took to the air with a chirp and headed for the evergreen trees. This was a beautiful moment for the family who had helped her. Having survived those few hours, there was every reason to hope that she would recover completely. Hairy woodpeckers are natural predators of the European corn borer moth, an insect that costs the North American Agriculture industries billions of dollars each year in crop losses. They are a friend to farmers and to vegetable consumers alike. They also eat other insects that destroy trees and bore holes in tree trunks. Male hairy woodpeckers have red plumage on their heads, while the females are purely black and white. Bird enthusiasts and nature lovers entice these birds to the back yard feeders with seeds, nuts, and suet, especially in winter. They are a very pretty bird and a delight to see at the feeder.
President Kais Saied's decision to invoke Article 80 of the Tunisian constitution late on Sunday to freeze the activities of parliament and oust the prime minister was rapidly called a coup by his political foes. The legality of his actions rests on rival interpretations of the article that were meant to be resolved by a judicial body that authorities have for years failed to set up. Politicians and constitutional lawyers are now wrangling over whether Saied had any authority for his actions.
