There’s no greater instrument for good than a caring heart — in fact, that’s what sets the stage for miracles. Just ask the Bingham family, and the little creature who’s alive today because of them.
The Binghams were gathered outside the family’s cabin in Utah on a white Thanksgiving morning, when they discovered a lifeless stray kitten who had gotten buriedbeneath the freshly fallen snow. Despite the fact that he appeared to be frozen, with no detectable heartbeat, the family rushed him inside to try to coax the kitty back to life.
What happened next is nothing short of amazing.
Incredibly, after being warmed by the fireplace and resuscitated with some gentle CPR, the kitten slowly but surely began to recover — an outcome the Binghams are calling a miracle.
They named the cat Lazarus.
We may never know what led little Lazarus to become abandoned and left…

Abusers of animals are five times as likely to harm humans. Nearly half of the victims who stay in violent households do so because they are afraid for their animals. Countless more never leave the home for this very reason. Companion animals like cats and dogs may be threatened or harmed; the vulnerability of other animals like horses may also make it difficult for victims to escape in emergencies. The “link” between violence against humans and animals is clear. But there are resources that can help.
Military personnel go through an enormous amount of work, and sometimes trauma, to keep us safe. They put their lives on the line and go months at a time without seeing their loved ones. So when they finally do return, they definitely deserve a big welcome!
Gracie, the pup in this video, had the right idea when welcoming her hooman back from Afghanistan. When she sets eyes on her long-missed BFF, she absolutely explodes with happiness. The gravity of her reaction is enough to bring a tear to our eyes! We bet that she didn’t leave his side for at least a week after this video was shot!
An update in the video description confirms that Gracie and her family are all doing well. Gracie’s 12 now, but she’s still an amazing friend to this brave soldier. In honor of this sweet reunion, be sure to give…

(So nobody actually sent me this – I went looking. If you’re on Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 and are missing the old classic games as last seen on Windows 7 – Solitaire and the rest – here’s how you can get them back. Ed.)
The first week of the trial of Officer William Porter ended without the prosecution making any obvious headway. In cases such as this, what is often most interesting and important is not what is said, but what goes unsaid, and so it is thus far in this case. The SMM Freddie Gray archive can be found here.
As I said in Update 26, it’s important to remember that I have no direct information sources, and am relying on the media, primarily The Baltimore Sun, for information about the case. As a purveyor of The Narrative, it is remarkable that The Sun’s coverage has been as negative toward the prosecution as it has, however, there is probably no real way around reporting reality in this case. If The Sun tried, there would be little to report, so weak is the prosecution’s…

Record levels of Fukushima radiation detected off West Coast — Massive plume stretches for more than 1,000 miles — Reuters: Contamination is spreading off U.S. shores — Radioactive cesium reaches 11 Bq/m3 at multiple locationshttp://enenews.com/record-levels-fukushima-radiation-detected-west-coast-massive-plume-stretches-1000-miles-cesium-reaches-11-bqm3-multiple-locations-map?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ENENews+%28Energy+News%29(MAP)
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Dec 3, 2015 (emphasis added): Higher levels of Fukushima cesium detected offshore — Scientists monitoring the spread of radiation in the ocean from the Fukushima nuclear accident report finding an increased number of sites off the US West Coast showing signs of contamination from Fukushima. This includes thehighest detected level to date from a sample collected about 1,600 miles west of San Francisco. The level of radioactive cesium isotopes in the sample, 11 Becquerel’s per cubic meter… is 50 percent higher than other samples collected along the West Coast so far… Working with Japanese colleagues, [Ken Buesseler, a WHOI marine radiochemist] also continues to independently monitor the
