Ronnie Wood rejected chemotherapy for lung cancer: ‘This hair wasn’t going anywhere’

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has revealed he was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year.

During a routine health check, his doctor asked if he could also check his heart, lungs and blood – and discovered what Wood describes as “a supernova burning away on my left lung … He asked me what I wanted to do and my answer was simple: ‘Just get it out of me.’” The cancer hadn’t spread to his lymph nodes, meaning that after a five-hour operation, Wood is healthy for now.

David Slater has been fighting for years over who has the copyright to photos taken by monkeys using his camera, and says he’s struggling as a result

A US appeals court has debated whether or not a monkey can own the copyright to a “selfie” while the photographer whose camera captured the famous image watched a livestream of the proceedings from his home in the UK.

David Slater could not afford the airfare to San Francisco to attend the hearing on Wednesday. Nor can he afford to replace his broken camera equipment, or pay the attorney who has been defending him since the crested black macaque sued him in 2015, and is exploring other ways to earn an income.

Police Dog Gets Fired For Being Too Friendly, Later Receives An Even Better Job Offer

Meet Gavel, the German shepherd who was fired from a job as a police dog for… being too friendly for this type of work. Yup, instead of sniffing for explosives and catching thieves for the Queensland Police Service in Brisbane, Eastern Australia, the pooch was more interested in getting a belly rub or two.

However, being the good looking boy that he is, he didn’t have to spend a lot of time standing in line with the unemployed, because he has just landed an even better role for himself. All he has to do is just be his usual, social, and charming self – as he became the official Vice-Regal dog.
