  1. More than 840 killed in Haiti hurricane Updated: 2:36 pm, Saturday, 8 October 2016 The video selected is not currently available. Hurricane Matthew's trail of destruction in Haiti has stunned those viewing the aftermath, with the number of dead soaring to 842, tens of thousands made homeless and crops destroyed in the impoverished Caribbean nation's breadbasket region. Hurricane Matthew has now been downgraded to a Category 2 storm, after its winds slowed to 175 km/h as it moved through Southern US cities. In Haiti information trickled in from remote areas that were cut off by the storm, and it became clear that at least 175 people died in villages clustered among the hills and coast of the nation's fertile western tip. Matthew pushed the sea into fragile coastal villages, some of which are only now being contacted. At least three towns reported dozens of fatalities, including the hilly farming village of Chantal, whose mayor said 86 people perished, mostly when trees crushed houses. He said 20 more people were missing. 'A tree fell on the house and flattened it, the entire house fell on us. I couldn't get out,' said driver Jean-Pierre Jean-Donald, 27, who had been married for a year. 'People came to lift the rubble, and then we saw my wife who had died in the same spot,' Jean-Donald said, his young daughter by his side, crying 'Mommy.' Dozens more were missing, many of them in the Grand'Anse region on the northern side of the peninsula. Coastal town Les Anglais also lost 'several dozen' people, the central government representative in the region, Louis-Paul Raphael, told Reuters. With fatalities mounting, various government agencies and committees differed on total deaths. A Reuters count of deaths reported by civil protection and local officials put the toll at 842. Haiti's central civil protection agency, which takes longer to collate numbers because it needs to visually confirm victims itself, said 271 people died as Matthew smashed through the western peninsula on Tuesday. Some 61,500 people were in shelters, the agency said. Les Anglais was the first place in Haiti that Matthew reached, as a powerful Category 4 storm before it moved north, lost strength and lashed central Florida on Friday. Hours before the hurricane landed in Haiti, the Les Anglais mayor told Reuters residents were fleeing for their lives as the ocean rushed into their homes. The hurricane has been downgraded to a Category 2 storm, as its winds slowed to 175km/h. Although Matthew is expected to weaken further over the next few days, forecasters believe it will remain a hurricane until it begins to move away from the south-eastern United States. AAP

  11. A female dwarf goes to a doctor complaining of an embarrassing itch in the groin area. The doctor looks her up and down, picks her up and stands her on his desk.. He lifts up her skirt and puts his head under. A little perplexed, she hears snip, snip, snip, snip. The doctor emerges from under her skirt. "How's that?" he asks "Well, it's a lot better actually" she says, "but...........it's still there." Undaunted, he dives back under her skirt. Snip, snip, snip,snip.. Out he comes. "How's that?" He asks again more confident. "That's wonderful! What did you do?" she asked. "I trimmed the top of your Ugg boots."
  12. Baby's First Doctor Visit A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam. The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed. 'Breast-fed,' she replied. 'Well, strip down to your waist,' the doctor ordered. She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination. Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, 'No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk.' 'I know,' she said, 'I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came'.'
