The picture below, posted by an Instagram user named “juventudmedica”, shows how the girl’s affected leg had shriveled and turned black as the muscle tissues “rot”.

Reports say that she was first treated with classic rural remedies, which probably meant that she was administered with antibiotics. However, she only sought appropriate medical treatment at Carcaras a month after the incident.

Doctors say they may have to amputate her leg.

It was unlikely that she was administered with an anti-venom to control the spread of the poison. Anti-venoms are composed of agents that can paralyse the nerves and coagulate blood.

According to Dr. Arum Ghosh, a private GP from Liverpool, snake venom is very complicated.

“It depends on the species of the snake”, he said.

“The whole lower leg is black, it’s spreading up. Looking at the rest of her body she’s showing signs of muscle wastage from the poison. Her other leg is thin. It’s likely she will still die.”

Furthermore, the necrosis resulted in rhabdomyolysis, a condition that can cause the dissolution of her entire skeletal muscles. If left untreated, it may damage her kidneys and eventually result in kidney failure or even death.

This case only proves how important it is for us to seek early and appropriate medical treatment.

Our home is our refuge; it is that one place where we are supposed to feel safe. So, how would you react if you found out that a stranger can come and go inside your home in the middle of the night and not even know it?

Joe Cummings had been wondering why his food seemed to vanish from his apartment. At first, he thought that it was just his girlfriend who's been eating them.  But when she told him that she had nothing to do with it, he decided to place a hidden camera in his house to find out who the culprit is once and for all.

Imagine the shock he felt when the camera captured  a woman coming out of the small vent in his flat! The woman steals his food and goes through his stuff every night. She even urinates in his sink!

Is NASA trying to hide something from the human race?

This is what many conspiracy theorists believe after NASA captured a live feed from the International Space Station (ISS) allegedly showing three blurry UFOs leaving the planet and flying into space. Moments later, NASA unexpectedly cuts the live broadcast with the message ‘Please Stand By.The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station'.

Although the video shows nothing but mere specks of light rising from the atmosphere, conspiracy theorists believe that the mind-boggling footage is proof of alien life.

Well, it really has to be done right. Otherwise, the ads will just be ignored by the target market.

In this case, however, these bad slogans are getting a lot of public attention but for all the wrong reasons. Some have found them to be very tasteless and offensive. While others shrug it off and consider them plainly amusing.
