I wasn’t really arrested. They came and asked me and I said, ‘Yeah, I got ‘em’ ... I gave them all my signs – it was over 500 of them,” he told WJW-TV. He said he has been removing signs from city-owned right-of-ways for about 10 years. “There was nothing on the sign saying this sign is allowed to be here.

A man in India set a new world record by balancing a spinning basketball on a toothbrush in his mouth for nearly a minute. Sandeep Singh, a 25-year-old from Punjab, broke the Guinness World Record for “Longest duration spinning a basketball on a toothbrush” by balancing the ball on the brush for 53 seconds. “It was my dream to break a world record,” Singh said. He performed the attempt in front of a crowd in his hometown, where he began by spinning the ball on toothbrush. Once the ball was on the toothbrush, he leaned his head to the side and placed the bristles in his mouth as the ball continued to spin. The ball began to wobble and eventually fell after almost a minute, but Singh’s attempt was almost nine times longer than the previous record of 6.84 seconds. – UPI EXPRESSION OF INTEREST Hardcore… It is believed that hardcore spa-goers say the rhythmic motion of the blades, which are whacked all over the body and face are extremely relaxing. Photos: Carter News Agency/ Mirror A massage under the blade A strange health craze where spa-goers get hit in the face and body with knives is becoming popular as people seek new ways to feel relaxed. Sharpened cleavers are pressed in rhythmic motions with nothing but a thin piece of material between the patient and the blade. Hsiao Mei Fang, the owner of Ancient Art of Knife Therapy Education Centre, in Taipei, Taiwan, has been performing the strange procedure for more than 13 years. But she says people now seek out the treatment, which starts from around N8. Ms Fang said: “The treatment is originally from China and is 2,500 years old. “But here we have created an original and new knife therapy. “Everything has a Yin and a Yang, so instead of using one knife we use two - this represents the Yin and Yang. “The massage changes the energy inside the person and makes them more relaxed. “The knife is specially made so it’s very safe. We wouldn’t use a kitchen knife to do this.” She added: “A lot of people think it’s just for fun but people don’t realise this will change their lives. After they have experienced it they tell their friends and they all come to us.” After sharpening her tools, Hsiao uses a stick to loosen up the blood vessels and improve the circulation of the client before moving onto the massage itself. And just when you thought things couldn’t get any stranger, in the midst of the massage the masseuse makes a burping sound, which is apparently them spitting out the bad energy they draw from the client. – Mirror The Business and Intellectual Property Authority (BIPA) is hereby inviting all potential suppliers and service providers that are aspiring to render goods and services to BIPA, in order to be shortlisted and added on BIPA’s Supplier Database for the 2017/2018 financial year.
