A young boy recovering from leukemia fought alongside his favorite superhero Batman, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 5-year-old Miles was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 20 months old and ended chemotherapy treatment in June, with the cancer now in remission. The nonprofit arranged to turn San Francisco into “Gotham City,” where Miles would perform a series of rescues and make his wish to be Batman come true. Thousands of people from around the Bay Area gathered at several sites throughout the city to cheer on the boy, who was dressed in a Batman costume complete with a mask and cape.

Locals in Clearwater, Florida celebrated the grand opening of a Scientology 'cathedral' that has been under construction for 15 years.
The $145 million Flag Building is a huge seven-story, 377,000-square-foot complex that is now considered as the 'spiritual headquarters' of the 59-year-old religion.
The opening of the building marked the first time the religion has had a space for its 'Super Power' training - a program developed by their founder, L Ron Hubbard, in the 1970s.
Three hundred small rooms for 'auditing' can be found on the upper floors, and on the fifth floor, members will train to receive “super powers” like enhanced spiritual abilities and increased perceptions.
As part of that therapy, members will be spun on an anti-gravity simulator blindfolded to improve things like sight, smell, taste, blood circulation, and awareness of awareness.
