    Shelter rescues endangered squirrels

    TELTOW, Germany (WTHR) - It's been a busy summer for a squirrel rescue organization in Germany. Hot weather has led to more squirrels than usual getting sick or dying from lack of access to water and food. That's where the rescue group "Berlin/Brandenburg Squirrel Help" steps in. They rescue and feed squirrels, particularly young ones who fall out of their mother's tree nests or are injured. The rescue group operates year-round, but things tend to pick up in the summer and winter when scavenging can be particularly tough for squirrels. The organization urges people to keep feeders and water sources in their backyards for wild animals.

    Soccer Referee Tests Whether Threat of Becoming Viral Video Can Improve Youth Sports Parent Behavior

    Brian Barlow is a youth soccer referee from Tulsa, Okla., who has gone viral over the last week, following a New York Times profile on his efforts to improve the conduct of sports parents by, among other things, using the threat of themselves becoming a viral video to stop them from abusing officials. He will pay $100 to anyone who sends him a video of such parents wilding out on a ref that he ends up posting onto Facebook, making Barlow's page, called "Offside," the youth sports parents version of Worldstar Hip-Hop, with the other parents serving the role of every kid who whips out a phone when a fight starts in the school hallway. It's become abundantly clear that becoming a viral video, or

    Woman who fell through ceiling in viral video sentenced

    An Edmonton woman who fell through the roof of a convenience store during a theft attempt has been sentenced. CTV News obtained surveillance video from Reddi Mart last month, which shows a man shoving Brittany Burke, 29, into the police officer as he tries to escape. Burke then ran into the back room and crawled into the ceiling before crashing through the roof panels and into a store display. The video showing her fall from grace was viewed by millions around the world and the subject of several parodies. On Wednesday, Burke was handed a 15-day sentence, but received credit for time served and will not be going back behind bars. She was convicted of obstructing a peace officer, breaching conditions

    A Savannah waitress did what so many women have wanted to do after being groped by a man — she tackled him. And it was all caught on tape.

    From obscurity to political stardom: How viral videos are reshaping elections

    By election night last month, more than 1 million people had watched the video with its signature scene of the socialist candidate on a subway platform, changing out of commuter shoes and into heels en route to her restaurant job. A gentrifying New York that is squeezing out working-class families such as hers forms the backdrop. The filmmakers from Detroit, who quit their corporate jobs to help candidates such as Ocasio-Cortez, knew they had something while shooting on that subway platform.

    It didn't take long for the story to go viral after a few Alabama players shared video on social media of them stranded out in the middle of a lake with Nick Saban on his boat. As a refresher, here are a few accounts from players on the experience. In all honesty, the situation was one of the more fun college football related stories of the off season. Saban stuck on a boat while players take to social media to joke about it? Who doesn't love that. At SEC Media Day, Saban shared the real story behind what happened that day, and – SPOILER ALERT – they didn't run out gas. “Let me get the record straight here – we had a brand new boat. First time out in the boat, and the fuel pump didn't work. We

    Viral video sums up how frustrating it is to fold fitted sheets

    Laundry day is pretty much just a reminder that fitted sheets are the absolute worst — or at least, folding them is. Why are they so difficult to fold? There are plenty of tricks for getting the job done posted online, but it always seems to be a struggle regardless. And none of those tricks are quite as entertaining or as funny as one that a woman named Terri Estep Metz shared on Facebook last week. "So, I just got my sheets out of the dryer and I always hate that because I hate folding sheets," Terri explains in a video. "But, I know everybody does, so today, I'm going to show you the easiest way ever to fold a fitted sheet." In the video, Terri first lays the fitted sheet on the floor and
