Love Money Piggy Bank

You can now buy ‘love insurance’ which offers cash, diamonds or roses

There’s a new type of insurance taking China by storm and no, it’s not your typical house, car or contents insurance.

In recent months, Chinese Insurers have been offering ‘love insurance’ as an incentive for couples to stay together and get married.

The bizarre insurance policy, which has been dubbed as ‘very romantic’ by couples in the country, offers people rewards varying in cash pay-outs, roses or even diamonds if they tie the knot within a specified time frame.

According to one insurers policy, couples can pay 399 yuan, which will guarantee them a half carat diamond if they get married within three to 13 years of being together.

Another love policy states couples can pay 99 yuan in order to receive 1,999 yuan in a cash payout if they marry within 13 years. Or, if you fork out 399 yuan on a policy, you will be gifted 10,000 red roses on your wedding day.

Local media say love insurance has become the latest trend among college students, with special discounts being given to the younger generation.

Six-year-old Jimmy Spagnolo has become a viral sensation after adorable video footage of him celebrating the end of his chemotherapy treatment was posted online.

In the footage, which was uploaded to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Facebook page, the excited US boy cannot contain his excitement as he rings the hospital’s ‘congratulations bell’ and dances around in pure joy.

“Jimmy finished a yearlong chemotherapy treatment yesterday and rang the bell with his family and the staff to celebrate,” the hospital wrote in the caption of the video.

“The bell signifies so many emotions – it can signify the sound of tears, strength, fear, courage, doubt, satisfaction, relief and happiness all coming through as one as people around them cheer this accomplishment. The sound of that bell resonates in more ways than one. The emotion in the room is just unbelievable.”

According to a Facebook page set up by Jimmy’s parents, the youngster has been battling an inoperable brain tumor since he was just four-months-old.

The touching celebration video has gone viral with more than 290,000 views and thousands of comments.

Lunch box pack

Mother’s warning note from kindy about her toddler’s lunch goes viral

An Australian mother has received a controversial warning letter from her child’s kindergarten after she packed a piece of food from the ‘Red Food Category’ in her toddler’s lunch box.

Canberra author and commentator Melinda Tankard Reist posted an image of the note to her Facebook page where it has since gone viral.

“My friend (mother of 8 healthy children, what follows relating to no. 7) received this today from her 3 year old’s kindy. I told her to put in two slices tomorrow and tell them to get lost,” she captioned the image.

The note from the kindy reads: “Your child has chocolate slice from the Red Food category today. Please choose healthier options for Kindy”.

The letter has divided the internet with majority of parents on Facebook siding with the mother.

“Teachers have no right to tell a parent what to feed their kids,” one user commented.

“I understand the concept of trying to encourage healthy eating, but how do the teachers know what are the ingredients of the items? I have a great Chocolate Zucchini muffin recipe. So would that be tossed out too due to lack of knowledge?” wrote another.
