Makenna Woodburn was standing in line waiting to get an autograph from Boston Red Sox players when she spotted a true hero. Makenna, seven, left her spot in line and approached U.S. Army Reservist Olyvia Russell, who was at the event in uniform, and asked for her autograph. Shes a hero instead of a baseball player, Makenna explained. She added that she is saving her allowance to purchase a case to keep the ball in and that she plans to take the ball to show and tell.

Spend a bit more and youll get something much more durable and stable. You can spend even more and get carbon fibre models, which are just as strong but lighter, while there are also specialist tripods for travel and macro photography. For a good balance between weight, size and price youre not going to go far wrong with the Manfrotto MT190XPRO3. It offers decent load-bearing capacity and a more than adequate maximum working height, while the centre column can also be positioned horizontally for low-angle shooting.

Tripod head: Manfrotto XPRO ball head While some cheaper tripods normally come with an integrated tripod head, or with a separate head included (there are some pricier options that do as well), most photographers like to choose their own tripod head to go with their set of legs.

The POTUS has other responsibilities than live-tweeting awards shows?? Who knew! As you know, Donald Trump has a long history of sending out his opinions of the Oscars via Twitter -- but this year, his Press Secretary Sean Spicer says Drumpf will be focusing on hosting the Governors' Ball instead of seeing what Meryl Streep has to say at the 89th Academy Awards. Related: Trump Roasts This Year's Best Picture Nominees When asked about Hollywood's biggest night (this Sunday on ABC at 8 p.m. EST!) during a press conference on Wednesday, Melissa McCarthy 's muse said: "I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions, and I've got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors' Ball that night. Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event. And the first lady's put a lot of time into this event, in welcoming our nation's governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that's where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night.

We love our pets unconditionally. But sometimes, they test that love. A lot. For example, Redditor Ferenginar 's dog decided to swallow a $0.25 bouncy ball. You know, one that you get from those toy dispensers in malls or right by the exit in grocery stores. The problem was, the ball got stuck in the dog. And in the end, a bouncy ball that cost a quarter ended up costing almost $1,000 to get it surgically removed from the dog. The best part? The dog clearly would do it again. Just look at her face. SEE ALSO: Distracted beagle wins everyone's heart at Westminster Dog Show We saw it happen," Ferenginar said in response to questions about how the ball ended up in the dog in the first place. My son was playing with the ball and the dog grabbed it as it was bouncing around." Read more... More about Pets , Reddit , Dogs Funny , Dogs , and Conversations

However, he was powerless to stop Pablo Sarabia and Correa putting Sevilla into a 2-0 lead before Vardy's reply 17 minutes from time. "The first half was very, very tough," added Ranieri. "No one wanted to receive the ball and Kasper maintained the team alive, saved the penalty, saved some shots. "The second-half was much better, but in our good moment they scored the second goal. "We didn't give up and scored the goal which is important for three things. "It gives us strength, it gets Vardy back among the goals and it opens up the tie." However, the Italian laughed off suggestions Leicester could now be favourites to eliminate a Sevilla side that are flying high in La Liga and have won the Europa League in each of the past three seasons. "I think we are underdogs because they are very high quality. "We will suffer in the second leg, we will try to do our best and, if we lose, it is because Sevilla make a great performance.

If you've always wanted to see in the dark but haven't been able to score those perfect Soviet-era military surplus night vision goggles, you may be in luck. Now there's an open-source night vision monocular that you can build to keep tabs on the nighttime goings-on in your yard. Where this project stands out is not so much the electronics it's really just a simple CCD camera module with the IR pass filter removed, an LCD screen to display the image, and a big fat IR LED to throw some light around. [MattGyver92] seemed to put most of his effort into designing a great case for the monocular, at the price of 25 hours of 3D printer time. The main body of the case is nicely contoured, the eyepiece has a comfortable eyecup printed in NinjaFlex, and the camera is mounted on a ball-and-socket gimbal to allow fine off-axis angle adjustments. That comes in handy to eliminate parallax errors while using the monocular for nighttime walks with both eyes open.

It had been through various intense phases because, of course, the Taliban couldn't be counted on to play ball or go quietly, but eventually, and perhaps inevitably, it was hailed as a military success. The insurgency had been suppressed, everyone declared. Marjah had been recovered and the rule of law had been re-established. Flag raising ceremonies had taken place, people could return to their homes, schools and businesses could re-open and ISAF - after demonstrating what western military might and ramped-up Afghan government services could accomplish in harness - could now focus its attention on Kandahar, the next most troublesome province. But seven years on - after seven more years of fighting, the 2014 withdrawal of most NATO troops (but not the 8,000 US forces still in country), changing administrations in Washington and Kabul and countless more killed and wounded on both sides in this seemingly never-ending war - the Taliban's white banners are flying over Marjah once again, poppy production continues unabated and the regional capital, Lashkar Gah, is once more under virtual siege.
