Leadership stress must be managed for the sake of the team.
Here are some of the craziest stories making headlines in the news today:
Woman taunts lion after climbing into its enclosure; Trump’s crazy medieval ideas for border wall; Woman arrested after live-streaming herself bench pressing newborn with one hand and smoking with the other — makes shocking statement about baby to cops.
Don’t try this yourself… People are engaging in dumb and dumber stunts in order to try outdoing each other with outrageous videos for the sole purpose of posting them online. The latest chapter in this type of stupidity is a woman who climbed into the lion enclosure at the Bronx Zoo in order to shoot a video that was later posted to Instagram with the caption: “You will not believe what happened next.”
The woman climbed over the safety barrier at the Bronx Zoo’s African lion enclosure, then stood at the edge of a moat, positioning herself just feet away from a male lion. The woman then proceeded to taunt the lion, wiggling her hips, dancing and waving, and saying “hi!” to the lion. The woman was either completely fearless or totally in a state of naive bliss.
As lions will do, the ferocious beast started to get a little agitated, and roared. At that point, some of the bystanders who were watching the spectacle decided to take their kids away, fearing that things could turn bloody at any moment.
Luckily, the woman decided it was a good time to leave and tragedy was averted.
“This action was a serious violation and unlawful trespass that could have resulted in serious injury or death,” a zoo spokesperson said of the woman’s actions. “Barriers and rules are in place to keep both visitors, staff and animals safe. We have a zero-tolerance policy on trespass and violation of barriers.”
According to the NYPD, the Bronx Zoo filed a complaint for criminal trespass against the woman.
It sounds like a line out of the movie “Pulp Fiction” as, apparently, President Donald Trump wanted to “get medieval” with the way the US-Mexico border wall was constructed, according to a new book by New York Times in Washington correspondent Michael D. Shear and Julie Hirschfeld Davis titled: Border Wars: Inside Trump’s Assault on Immigration.
The two authors claim that, during a private meeting with White House advisors, Trump floated ideas such as putting a moat in front of the wall that was filled with snakes and alligators.
He even suggested shooting border jumpers in the legs. Other ideas included electrifying the wall and putting spikes at the top that would pierce flesh to discourage people from trying to climb over, as well as, painting it flat black so that the Mexico heat would make it scalding to the touch.
Reportedly, then-Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was constantly in the position of having to tell Trump that his ideas were tenable.
A Chattanooga, Tennessee woman used Facebook Live to stream herself bench pressing her one-month-old daughter with one hand, while smoking with the other. Police arrested the woman and charged her with aggravated child abuse.
When the police arrived, she told officers that she “didn’t want that f***ing baby anyway.” Officers found empty liquor bottles lying on the floor and said the woman’s breath reeked of alcohol.
The woman, Tybresha Sexton, was also charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. She is due in court on October 4. The baby is now with Sexton’s mother.
