By: Tanya Malhotra

(Scroll down for video) People who want to experience sleeping with the sharks, can now rent a room on Airbnb that allows them sleep in a room that was built inside a shark tank.

L'Aquarium de Paris in Paris, France, has listed the rental on Airbnb, but the offer is only available to three guests.

The guests will have the opportunity to stay in the underwater room, and the only thing that will separate them from the shark’s teeth would be a transparent glass wall.

Guests will also be invited on a VIP tour of the aquarium and get an exclusive behind the scenes glimpse in the world of sharks.

Fred Buyle, a diver and underwater photographer, will be your host for the evening. An intimate dinner in the tank will also be on the menu, and breakfast is available in the morning.

Guests will not be allowed to take photos as sharks are very sensitive to the camera’s flashing lights.

To enter the contest, you must be 18 years old all older, and will need to write a little about why you want to sleep with the sharks.

Winners will be selected on Saturday, and should be available to stay in the aquarium on the following Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Free round trip airfare will be made available to all winners.

Young mother kills herself after being haunted by her decision to have an abortion

Jade Rees 
By: Feng Qian

A young mother of the United Kingdom, killed herself after being very distraught over her decision to have an abortion.

21-year-old Jade Rees had an abortion after her five-month relationship with the baby's father was over and he began dating another woman.

The decision to go through with the abortion left her “upset and distressed.” She took her own life three weeks ago, a court heard.

Rees of Oldham, Manchester, left a handwritten note to her parents and her two-year-old son, in which she explained the struggles she went through since having the abortion. She also wrote how much she loved her young son.

Rees died while listening to Ed Sheeran’s song Small Bump, which is about a miscarried child and was written from the point of view of one of the composer's close friends.

Rees became pregnant with her son when she was 18 years old. Although she separated from the child's father when she was only four months pregnant, she handled it “exceptionally well,” the court heard.

She met her latest boyfriend in early 2015, but they split after she became pregnant with his child. She decided to terminate the pregnancy, but the decision haunted her, according to her suicide note.

She took an overdose of prescription and over-the-counter pills twice in 48 hours. On the second occasion, her father had to rush her to the Royal Oldham Hospital’s emergency room, where she remained for two days before being declared medically fit for discharge.

Days after she returned home, she took her life by hanging herself.

Assistant coroner Matthew Cox ruled the death as a suicide, saying: “Due to the circumstances and the contents of her note, I am satisfied that Jade did intend the consequence of her actions.”

PETA warns parents not to feed boys chicken because eating it causes private parts to remain small

PETA’s warning 
By: Chan Yuan

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has issued a warning to parents to stop feeding boys chicken because eating it would cause their private parts to remain small, according to a message the group wrote on Twitter.

The claim is based on a study linking phthalates, a chemical used in plastic, to hindering the growth of the fetus.

Many people criticized the message, including vegans, saying that PETA seems to be mocking those men with small manhoods instead of warning about the dangers of chemicals in food.

The 2008 study claimed that an increase in phthalates consumption by pregnant women hurts the size of their child’s manhood.

The study did not mention the words chicken or poultry.

Phthalates are typically found in such things as detergents, hair sprays and plastic coats, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Phthalates can make its way into foods and beverages that have been in contact with the plastic. As for poultry goes, it may be contaminated with phthalates during the packaging process.
