Got a cell phone?

Then consider putting these must-have phone numbers on speed dial.
Put your family on ICE. That stands for ‘In Case of Emergency.’ Paramedics recommend programming ANY emergency contact in your cell phone after the word ICE, as in “ICE-wife” or “ICE-dad.” The idea is that if you get into an accident, police can use your phone to quickly notify someone. .
Another must-have number to put on speed dial is: 1-800-GOOG-411. That’s 466-4411. It’s a Google service that lets you request information just as you would on a web browser. Ask for ‘Italian Restaurants,’ and you’ll get a list of spaghetti and meatball joints within the area code you’re calling from! The best part is that Google won’t charge you – unlike some other 411 services.
The next number to program on speed dial is: 866-411-SONG. Ever been driving around, and you hear a song on the radio that you’re dying to know the name of? Call this number, and hold your phone up to the speaker for 15 seconds. The service will I.D. any song within its database of 2-and-a-half MILLION tunes. Then you’ll be sent a text message listing the title and artist. It’ll even give you an option to download the song onto your phone!
Next, if you’re always trying to hail a cab, then program this number on speed dial: 800-TAXI-CAB. This is a free referral service that connects you with the closest taxi company within any metro area in North America. They’ll also hook you up with a shuttle service if you’re stranded at the airport.
If you’re traveling overseas, you must have this number on speed dial: 800-752-6096. That’s a language service that will connect you to one of 170 different translators. Want to know what “la personne la plus futée dans le chambre” means? Then get a French translator on the phone to tell you it means you’re the smartest person in the room! Beware, they’ll charge you $3.95 per minute for that privilege.

German woman administers CPR to tiger cub

A medical student visiting a Halle zoo on Thursday used CPR to rescue a baby tiger choking on a piece of meat. The cub survived - making him just the latest carnivore cub in Germany to be saved by human hands.
Janine Bauer was watching the zoo's big cats with her son, Johann, when the four-month old tiger began to choke. "The little baby tiger was gnawing meat off a bone. All of a sudden he couldn't breathe and lost consciousness," said Bauer.

A zookeeper rushed to the cub's side, but his hands were too big to pull the offending strip of steak out of the young tiger's throat. So Bauer, a medical student, left her one year-old son in his stroller and rushed into the enclosure.
She was able to pull the 10 centimeter chunk of meat out of the tiger's windpipe, but he did not regain consciousness on his own. So Bauer performed CPR on the cub, using heart massage to jump-start the young tiger's pulse and locking lips to chops to breathe air back into his lungs.
"It was like just like an infant," said Bauer. "It took four or five endless minutes, but then the tiger was growling again." In gratitude, the zoo's director announced that the tiger would be named Johann - just like Bauer's son.

Stripping Stewardess

A continent-wide hunt is under way for a flight attendant who took part in a mid-air striptease and the airline pilot whose hands were on the controls, among other things.
The video shows the young stewardess on the UK-bound flight unbuttoning her airline uniform on the flight deck. The pilot is then seen to take his hand off his joystick and help her off with her top.
The incident took place on a short-haul flight from Europe, when the captain and his chief officer asked the 20-something attendant up to the cockpit to enliven their flight to London.
The young woman, who can be seen to be wearing a wedding ring in the video, cheerfully goes along with it. She even goes so far as to take her bra off and happily allow the pilot to grope her breasts - and at one stage lifts up her skirt to show her underwear.
The video has sparked a internal probe at several European airlines as they attempt to discover who was involved.
The video above is probably NSFW, although there's a slightly longer, more revealing video at The Sun.
