  • Peru Two drug mule Michaella McCollum on being 'top dog' and earning £200 per week from inside South American jail

    One of the drug smugglers dubbed the Peru Two has told how she became "top dog" in her block and earned £200 per week while inside a South American prison. In an interview with the Daily Record following her return to Northern Ireland last week, Michaella McCollum told how she believes a blazing argument over drugs on a tourist bus led to her arrest, and how her jail stint has led to a string of admirers. Along with Melissa Reid, the 23-year-old was arrested at Lima's international airport in 2013, trying to board a flight to Spain with 24lb of cocaine hidden inside porridge wrappers. The pair were both jailed for six years and eight months, but freed early under new legislation on early prison

Among the banners was one that read: “Pervert sexually assaulted female dogs, going against morality," according to Chinese newspaper People’s Daily.

    A legendary 10-foot sturgeon dubbed ‘Pig Nose’ has finally been caught by a fishing fanatic who has been nicknamed the ‘Sturgeon Whisperer’.

  • Why I quit social work…after four months

    by Andy Faulkner As someone who is over half a century old, I did not go into social work expecting it to be all sweetness and light, nor did I ever think I’d save the world (or even a fraction of it). However, my experiences within the profession have left me wondering why I even bothered in the first place. In 2012 I was one of the very lucky ones, one of the “high flyers”, that managed to get a place on the government’s prestigious ‘Step Up To Social Work’ scheme. Reserved for those that already had a 2:1 degree or above, I went through one of the most arduous interview processes I’ve ever been through, and my reward was a place with my local consortium. Prior to this I’d had a (fairly) successful

  • Man told to stop cleaning up his neighbourhood because he has breached HEALTH AND SAFETY

    GLEN MINIKIN David Render, 54, led a remarkable transformation of once dilapidated areas near his home only to receive an email from a council official accusing him of “trespass, criminal damage and removal of property”. The email went on to warn him that if he carried on cutting down branches that overhang roads - as he had to do whilst restoring the sculpture - he would be put under investigation and “appropriate action” would be taken.  Mr Render rounded up a team of volunteers and spent £289 of his own money to restore a sculpture to its former glory after 28 years of neglect saw it become a rusting hulk obscured by overgrown bushes on a slip-road. He also dragged a dilapidated picnic table

  • This Disney Employee Still Comes To Work Every Day 16 Years After Being Forced To Retire

    In 1956, Floyd Norman was hired as an animator at Walt Disney Productions, making him the first African-American artist to be employed by the studio on a long-term basis. Though it may seem that Norman was able to escape racism in the workplace, he faced a different form of discrimination several years later. According to The New York Post, in 2000, when Norman was 65, Disney’s human-resources department told him it was time to retire. But he wasn’t ready for a life of leisure. Norman explains, “There’s no better job than creating something that entertains people. It’s putting a little light into a dark world.” So why would he want to leave? He didn't, and 16 years after essentially being fired
