Radio Globo / Via radioglobo.globoradio.globo.com

The pair, who have a 6-year-old daughter together, had both been searching for their mothers for years after being abandoned as children.

They both knew they had mothers with the same name but put it down to coincidence.

2. After an extensive search, the woman was finally able to speak to her mother on Brazilian Radio Globo’s The Time Is Now programme, a show that specialises in reuniting lost relatives.

In its report, the radio station changed the names, dates, and locations of those involved to protect the couple’s identity.

At the end of the segment, the mother, Maria, revealed to her daughter, Adriana, that she also had a son called Leandro with a different man than her father.

“I don’t believe that you’re telling me this,” the woman said. “Leandro is my husband.”

3. Regardless of the revelation, the pair, who were never legally married, have reportedly said they are going to stay together. The Mirror quotes Adriana as saying:

Only death is going to separate us. All this happened because God wanted it to happen.


At first we were really knocked by it all, but we had a family meeting and told everyone that we are going to stay husband and wife, whatever anyone might think.

We have so many plans together. Nothing is going to break us up. Nothing.

Colombia Announces Three Zika-Related Deaths

Colombias National Health Institute has announced the deaths of three people from a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome, which the victims are thought to have developed after becoming infected with the Zika virus.

Guillain-Barre syndrome often occurs as a response to a viral or bacterial infection, which can cause the bodys immune system to attack nerve cells in the peripheral nervous system. Since this system includes the motor neurons used to control muscle movement, the condition can lead to paralysis or even death in particularly severe cases.

It has not yet been confirmed whether or not the victims developed the condition as a result of contracting Zika, although Colombian health minister Alejandro Gaviria has said there is a causal connection between the Zika and the three deaths.

The virus has been linked to the recent explosion of microcephaly cases across Latin America in recent months, with the majority of these having occurred in Brazil which neighbors Colombia. This is a condition whereby babies are born with shrunken heads and often small brains, although as with Guillain-Barre, the link between microcephaly and Zika has not yet been confirmed.

Primarily a mosquito-borne disease, Zika is thought to have infected around 1.5 million people in Brazil so far, and has been connected to more than400confirmed cases of microcephaly since October, as well as more than 3,600 suspected cases. Alarmingly, it has recently been detected in the urine and saliva of infected individuals, suggesting that it may also be transmitted through bodily fluids. This, however, has not yet been verified.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recently announced that it believes a person in Texas became infected with the virus as a result of sexual intercourse, leading health officials to advise against engaging in unsafe sex in areas where Zika is prominent. Some have even warned that the virus could be transferred by kissing.

Though many questions remain unanswered as to how the virus is transmitted and what effects it has, these latest developments raise a number of concerns regarding Brazils famous Carnival, which attracts huge numbers of people from across the globe and is currently taking place across the country.

In addition to practising safe sex, people are being urged to take a number of measures to avoid becoming infected with the virus, such as sleeping under mosquito nets and using insect repellant. In addition, government officials in some Latin American nations have advised womenavoid becoming pregnant until the epidemic is brought under control, while the United Nations has urged governments to provide increased access to abortion facilities.

How This Guy Handles A Giant Spider Inside His Home Is A Thing Of Beauty

When you find a large spider in your home that’s not supposed to be there, how do you handle it? Personally, I run screaming to the other room and hope the bug finds its own way out. I know that’s a terrible way to handle the situation, but it’s worked for me so far. However, after watching the footage below, I might have to try a new approach next time.

The video features a guy in Brazil behaving with complete professionalism while handling a seriously huge monster. He’s so skilled, in fact, that he scoops the spider up with his bare hands before placing it in a plastic container. You seriously have to see this nonsense to believe it.

(via The Daily Mail)

While there’s no word on exactly what kind of spider it was, my money is on the Brazilian wandering spider. These things don’t spin webs, they’re nomadic, and they hunt for food wherever they please. They also have powerful venom that causes men to develop painful, long-lasting erections.

Good thing this guy was careful.
