Stephanie Edwards to Skip Rose Parade

Baby Sent Through X-Ray Machine

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that an unidentified 56-year-old woman inadvertently sent a baby through an X-ray machine at LAX last Saturday. The baby was taken to a nearby hospital and found to be okay, with doctors saying he had not received a dangerous dose of radiation. The woman and child were later allowed to board a flight to Mexico City.
"Rather than focus on the radiation dose, which is a small amount, we need to focus on why this happened, so it doesn't happen again," said Dr. James Borgstede, a diagnostic radiologist at Penrose-St. Francis Health Systems in Colorado Springs, Colo., and president of the American College of Radiology. "Human beings weren't meant to go through those things."

Astronaut Cuts Hair for Charity

Astronaut Suni Williams is currently orbiting the Earth while aboard the International Space Station. Her NASA profile indicates she was reluctant to attend the Naval Academy because it meant she'd have to cut her long hair. But anxiety over attending school in New York was more powerful than short locks, so off to Annapolis she went.

But this week, while aboard the Discovery space shuttle, she willingly had her ponytail cut off by fellow astronaut Joan Higginbotham. She reportedly is going to donate the hair to charity so the it can be used to make a wig for medically ill patients.
