THIS is the painful moment a dad-to-be managed to break his ankle while kicking a ball filled with coloured paint at a gender reveal party. Chris Ojeda, 34, of Somerset, New Jersey, had invited around all of his family to celebrate his birthday, Father's Day - and to find out the sex of his unborn child. Halfway through the party, his wife Pryscilla brought out the football filled with dye and put it in the middle of the garden as guess gathered round. With their phones poised for the big reveal, partygoers watched as the dad-of-one stepped up to the ball and kicked off his flip flops - but things quickly took a dramatic turn. As he booted the ball in the air, the sky filled with pink smoke and people can be heard screaming: "It's a girl!" But at the same time Chris slips over and falls awkwardly on one foot, which appears bent at a funny angle. His pregnant wife and other guests are seen rushing to his aid as he writhes on the floor in agony - completely missing the big moment. … [Read more...] about Painful moment dad-to-be fractures ankle kicking football filled with coloured paint at gender reveal party

The NHS is spending almost £1.5bn a year on agency nurses while its own staff are leaving in droves, a new report suggests. The vast outlay on temp workers would be enough to pay the wages of 66,000 full-time positions for a year, according to the study by The Open University. It claims the health of patients could be put at risk because of the constant churn of staff. And the report – compiled using a series of Freedom of Information requests – says the trend is only set to continue with 70 per cent of nurses leaving the NHS within 12 months of qualifying.

The first-of-its-kind research project has estimated the combined potential wealth of all 158 TDs to be in excess of €216m. The analysis by this newspaper and financial expert Karl Deeter found that central to this wealth is the gold-plated public service pensions which TDs receive on retiring from politics. Comprehensive research by Mr Deeter shows how pensions accumulated by the country's most senior politicians would cost millions of euro to buy in the private sector. The Political Rich List also provides voters for the first-time with an estimated value of the non-political assets of TDs - whose decisions impact on the finances of every home in the country. The research project examined several publicly available sources of information to calculate estimated values for property, land and businesses owned by TDs. The insight into the wealth of the people who govern the country estimated that controversial Independent TD Michael Lowry is the wealthiest politician in … [Read more...] about Revealed: Half of Ireland’s TDs are millionaires… and here’s how much they’re worth
