Banky the puppy was paralyzed after somebody threw her out of a moving car when six weeks old. At least that's what her rescuers believed.

The dog was found with multiple injuries and brought to the Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs. The pup underwent a hernia operation and other treatment and was brought to a stable condition. But she still wouldn't move her rear legs.

Then one day the staff noticed an incredible change—Banky was trying to stand up. It wasn't much, but enough to hint a recovery.

The rescue organization first posted about Banky on its Facebook page on April 10. Then, on Wednesday, April 18, it posted this video showing Banky's progress.

CCTV footage has emerged of a man narrowly avoiding being hit by an oncoming train in southern Sydney after he jumped onto the tracks to cross the platform. The footage, from August 2017 but released on November 6, shows the man rolling onto the platform at Banksia Station a second away from being crushed. The incident was described as “idiotic” by the NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance, who told Nine News he would be reviewing penalties for reckless behaviour at train stations. In a media release, Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins also lashed out at such risky actions. “This is dangerous behaviour that has to stop,” Collins said. "It’s beyond comprehension what goes through people’s minds when they behave like this. It’s time to put a stop to this foolishness. “These are mindless and thoughtless acts that needlessly put lives at risk. They not only delay our services but can be quite traumatising for our customers and our staff who witness these acts.” Credit: Sydney Trains via ViralVids

The Metropolitan Transport Agency (MTA)
will launch the mobile application "MYmta."

The app will allow commuters to see in real time
the status of trains and elevator outages.

as well as locate nearest stations and bus stops.

The MTA asked two of its current employees to
test out the app ahead of its launch.

MTA spokesman Jon Weinstein says the app
will be available to commuters within weeks.


[[Michelle, New York Commuter]]
All I know is about the bus right now. So I don’t know about
any train apps yet. So yeah, that’d be good. Yeah, I think that’d be
helpful

Some commuters think the MTA should focus
on improving current services before offering
new ones.

[[Gervine Terry, New York Commuter]]
I have been stuck in Manhattan on the F for more than 45 minutes.
The 7 is a problem most of the time in the morning. They have
a lot of signal problems. We need a lot of repair. But they’re
constantly working on it. But I can't see the results.
