If you have Thanksgiving leftovers in the fridge, toss them. They’re now bad

You've eaten all you can possibly eat at Thanksgiving dinner, and there's still plenty of food left. It's a problem so common that experts have linked holiday leftovers to a seasonal increase in food poisoning cases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that outbreaks of a bacteria that causes food poisoning occur most often in November and December. Many of those outbreaks have been linked to common holiday foods such as turkey and roast beef. And while for many people food poisoning is a short-lived discomfort, for vulnerable members of your family — such as the young or the elderly — it could be life-threatening. — USA Today

Emergency evacuation slide falls from airplane to the ground

A Sunday afternoon chat outside a neighbor’s home took a terrifying turn on Sunday for Milton resident Stephanie Leguia when a Delta airplane dropped a massive evacuation slide onto her neighbor’s yard, feet from where they were standing. “If it had hit us, we would have been dead — it’s that heavy,” she said. “And if we didn’t die — I hate to think of the alternative.” Leguia was standing her neighbor’s Adams Street yard when the 6-foot silver evacuation slide fell from the sky with such force it took down four tree branches as is slammed to the ground. No one was injured. — Boston Herald
