Near-Earth Object,(NEO), asteroid 2000 EM26 will pass within 2.1 millions miles on Monday, February 17th, 2014. EM26will pose no threat to the Earth or Moon, but will give astronomers around the globe a chance study a near Earth object up close.
Although this even will pose no threat, we through the same thing , when NEO 2012 DA14 missed Earth on a close fly by on February, 15 2013. While astronomers studied DA14, another NEO entered the Earth's atmosphere over Cheyabinsk Russia traveling 60 times the speed of sound.
Due to the large number of vehicle mounted cameras, the event was captured live. The object glowed brighter than the sun before exploding 18.5 miles above Chelyabinsk.
The explosion generated a bright flash, and produced a cloud of dust and gas that penetrated to 26.2 km, and many surviving small fragmentary meteorites, as well as a powerful shock wave. The atmosphere absorbed most of the object's energy, equivalent to 20–30 times more energy than was released from the atomic bomb detonated at Hiroshima.

Iranian media are claiming that an 80-year-old man has broken the world record for the number of years he has let elapse since he last bathed himself.
Tehran Times explains:
The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) and the Tehran Times reported that one Amou Haji of southern Iran has not bathed for 60 years.
The Tehran Times described Haji as a sort of recluse who took to the countryside after experiencing “emotional setbacks” as a young man.
Tehran Times explains:
His smoking pipe is filled with animal’s feces instead of tobacco and when he feels like smoking cigarettes he lights up a few of them at a time.He wears a war helmet not to fight off the enemy in the battle field but to keep away from the bitterly cold winters.Amou Haji has a couple of places to live in: one is a hole in the ground resembling a grave to keep him grounded and in touch with the reality of life and the other is an open brick shack built by those who felt sorry for him.

A review of medical records, police reports and a federal lawsuit show deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office, police officers with the City of Deming and medical professionals at the Gila Regional Medical Center failed to follow common since much less made some questionable decisions.
The incident began January 2, 2013 after David Eckert finished shopping at the Wal-Mart in Deming. According to a federal lawsuit, Eckert didn't make a complete stop at a stop sign coming out of the parking lot and was immediately stopped by law enforcement.
Eckert's attorney, Shannon Kennedy, informed KOB that after law enforcement asked him to step out of the vehicle, he appeared to be clenching his buttocks. Law enforcement thought that was probable cause to suspect that Eckert was hiding narcotics in his anal cavity. While officers detained Eckert, they secured a search warrant from a judge that allowed for an anal cavity search.The lawsuit claims that Deming Police tried taking Eckert to an emergency room in Deming, but a doctor there refused to perform the anal cavity search citing it was "unethical."
But physicians at the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City agreed to perform the procedure and a few hours later, Eckert was admitted.
