Women struggle with damage from illegal butt injections

Tampa, FL - It's been 2-years since Zakiya Teagle and Andrea Lee got illegal butt injections from a woman later sentenced for practicing medicine without a license. However, both women are still feeling the effects and suffer permanent damage from the ordeal.

"I still have some toxins in my body," Teagle told 10 News on Thursday.

The injections put both women in the hospital for nearly a month while their story made national headlines.

Teagle says doctors thought she would die after she started suffering from organ failure. She says it was a similar story for her friend Lee.

Crawling to the top: How I've gotten this far and why I'd want to work for Charlie Sheen

That's me in that video -- freaking out about making one of the Top 50 spots for the Charlie Sheen Tiger Blood Internship competition.

It’s been a week since the 250 Round 3 participants found out whether they’ve moved on to the final round or not. I made the cut -- but that’s the last I’ve heard.

I’ve yet to hear from Team Sheen if I’m his Tiger Blood intern or not. I’ll be at his show Friday, so maybe I’ll be able to ask him then.

I’ve got a plan -- a legal one, don’t worry -- to get his attention.

USF Alum in Top 50 spot for Charlie Sheen internship

Now it's whittled down to the Final 50. I'm one of those people -- and the only one located right here in Tampa Bay!

USF scientist unlocks the mystery of incredible toad tongues

USF scientist unlocks the mystery of incredible toad tongues

Tampa, Florida - How do toads, perhaps the least athletic of frogs, feed on fast moving insects? Biologists have known for decades that toads snare prey by flipping their sticky tongues out in a flash of an eye - just a few thousandths of a second - far faster than any other movements the often-sluggish creatures make.

Only in the last few years, however, have researchers determined how the slow toad is capable of such a lightning fast movement. The toad springs its mouth open using elastic recoil in a bow-and-arrow mechanism that literally whips out its tongue and catches its prey.

Now researchers have just published a study in the Journal of Experimental Biology revealing that toads have an additional trick—they can flip their tongues and feed even in the cold, at temperatures that virtually immobilize many amphibians and reptiles.
