Everybody’s Talking

Spider-Man Hero: An Indonesian man discovered that a Spider-Man costume can attract a lot of positive attention. Rudi Hartono, of Parepare, South  Sulawesi, was concerned about all the litter in the streets, and he took it upon himself to go on clean-up missions. However, no one else followed his example until he dressed as Spider-Man. He had purchased the costume to amuse his nephew but decided to wear it while picking up garbage. People took notice and started joining him in his endeavour. Since then, he has become a bit of a superhero in his community.
Ball Catcher: Many dogs like to play catch, but one Labrador retriever, named  Finley, can’t get enough of it. Finley lives in Canandaigua, New York (U.S.), with his human family, the Molloys. He has fine-tuned his catching skills to the point that he can fit six tennis balls in his mouth without help from his human playmates. When he was two years old, he could pick up four balls; eventually, he graduated to five, and then to six. Finley looks a bit odd with all those balls in his mouth, but his family is convinced he is proud of his unusual talent.  

Birds of a Feather: An artist from Bogotá, Colombia, wanted to learn about nature, so she started by observing and studying various species of birds. This led Diana Beltran Herrera to the art of making beautiful and precise life-size sculptures of birds from basic materials, such as paper and wire. She creates a form for the bird and then cuts and glues paper feathers to the form. She paints each creation so that it looks real. Her work includes pelicans, roosters,  parrots, sparrows, and many more. Over time, Herrera has managed to create sculptures representing over 100 bird species.

Key conundrum: It’s not unusual for people to lose their car keys. They might leave them in a restaurant or accidentally drop them on the ground. But not many people lose their keys the way Jovino Huerta lost his. Huerta is a political candidate in Huánuco, Peru. While campaigning, he decided to hand  out key chains with the phrase, “Vamos Peru!” Unfortunately, in the excitement of meeting people and shaking their hands, Huerta gave his own keys to someone by mistake. He explained his plight on social media, hoping that they would be returned. No word on that yet.
