*Cruising around the world has been a dream for many families for some time.
But as the cruise ship industry falters time and time again, cruising may be a dream voluntarily deferred.
On Sunday, Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas, which cruises out of Baltimore, Maryland, joined ranks with Carnival cruise line with a tragic incident while en route to the Bahamas.
A 62-year-old Virginia woman was found dead in her cabin by her husband on Sunday. The ship arrived back in Baltimore’s port on Monday as scheduled, according to the Huffington Post.
Nearly 3,000 pigs were fished from the Shanghai River last week threatening the water supply for millions.
*The waterways of the world are under attack from all types of pollution and trash imaginable.
Sometimes it feels like we are definitely in the midst of bible prophecy when dead fish, sharks, and whales have been found washing up on shores.
But now we have dead pigs in a river…thousands of them?! According to CNN, the Shanghai River was littered with nearly 3,000 pigs that came from the upper waters of the Huangpu River.
This river runs right into the center of Shanghai which threatens the city’s drinking water.
(l to r) Kaegan Arrington, 19, Anthony Wade, 19, and Neal Bland, 18, were all held responsible for the shooting death of 22-year-old Joshua Wood over the newly released Air Jordan XI “Bred” shoe.
*In the 1980s, Air Jordans hit the streets at the height of Michael Jordan’s career.

A mutilated, dead, black pig was left on the doorstep of Islamic Outreach Center outside Houston, Texas.
*Hate crimes aren’t lacking in quantity or originality these days.

The latest display of cruelty came against a mosque in the Houston, Texas area. The Islamic Outreach Center in Cypress was disgraced and humiliated with the placement of a dead, mutilated, black pig on their doorstep. Obviously, whoever is responsible for this act knew that Muslims abhor pigs and they do not come into any sort of contact with the “unclean” animal.
Amanda Clayton, 25, hit headlines with keeping her food stamps when she collected $1 million from the lottery, she was found dead Saturday.
*Back in May, we reported on a young woman named Amanda Clayton who was a food stamp recipient when she hit the lottery for a million bucks.
Well, of course her next plan of action, so the state thought, would be to stop collecting food stamps. NOT! She collected her winnings and her food stamps without a second thought.
But, unfortunately, she was unable to enjoy her windfall or the government assistance for very long because she was found dead of an apparent drug overdose Saturday morning, according to the Huffington Post.
Maybe someone was after her money and she was lured into some sort of drug binge. Who knows? Everything will be considered suspicious after her death.
Amanda Clayton, 25, was charged with fraud and was only a few months in to her probation. According to the report, she “pleaded no contest to fraud in June and was sentenced to nine months’ probation in July.”

*In 2009, we reported an unbelievable story that drew a heap of skeptics because a child that was in a coma for six months came out of the coma during a church service via a laying on of hands.
But a story out of Brazil is kind of the opposite as a child wakes from the dead, but collapses again.
Two-year old Kelvin Santos had been treated for pneumonia at a northern Brazil hospital, but was unable to be saved.
He was pronounced dead at 7:40pm Friday, June 1, and his family held an overnight wake for the child. (more…)
