Week 08.05.12 – Since the beginning of this summer’s Olympic games I have been glued to the TV cheering on the American athletes, and at times athletes from other countries too. My favorite event hands down has to be track and field, and the mens 4×100 meter relay did not disappoint. The battle for the gold between Team USA and Team Jamaica will no doubt go down as one of the best races ever! If you missed it you can get the details in the “Entertainment” section. For all you dessert lovers, take a peek at the reptile cake in the “Creativity” section (so life like it’s scary). Another story that I found interesting was the one about the young woman who has baffled medical experts because she has finger nails growing from her hair follicles all over her body! Read all about it in the “Life in General” section.

Take a look at what else you may have missed in the news.
