A day to day webdocumentary – A video journal filmed by Jim Brandenburg and directed by Laurent 

Wolves of Douglas County News

I’m a fan of Nature 365 and have the ap on my IPad. Brandenburg and Joffrion’s daily webdocumentary present the viewer with beauty, serenity and spirituality of our natural world. I crave more of these videos and hope this series will continue in 2016. ~Rachel

Source: 365 moments of nature, from January 1 to December 31, 2015. A video journal filmed by Jim Brandenburg and directed by Laurent Joffrion. A naturalist and poetic vision of the northern wild biotopes.

Introduction by Jim Brandenburg, wildlife photographer and filmmaker
For many years I filmed the forests around my wilderness home in the great northwoods and the wide-open prairies of my childhood. I had no particular project in mind; I simply enjoyed documenting the moods of the day and the coming and goings of the wild creatures that were almost like family to me. It became like a diary and for many years…

President Obama Signs Ban on Polluting Plastic Microbeads in Beauty Products

WASHINGTON— President Obama today signed into law a bill phasing out the manufacture of facewash, toothpaste and shampoo containing plastic microbeads by July 1, 2017 and the sale of such beauty products by July 1, 2018. Following in the footsteps of California’s historic microbead ban enacted earlier this year, the Microbead-Free Waters Act (H.R. 1321) bans all plastic microbeads from beauty products, including those made from so-called “biodegradable plastics,” most of which do not biodegrade in marine environments.

“Our oceans are inundated with microplastics that threaten sea birds, turtles and other marine wildlife. Now we can stop adding to the trillions of pieces already out there,” said Blake Kopcho, oceans campaigner with the Center for Biological Diversity. “This will eliminate a pointless and harmful source of plastic pollution before it ever has a chance…

Blind, Sick, Elderly Dog Spends His First Christmas In A Loving Home

Emilio Cogliani

Brunie Drumond brought home a blind, sick, elderly shelter dog in mid-December, not knowing if he’d make it to Christmas.

She hoped he would. She wanted to make it a good one for a sweet pup who’d never been given presents — never even slept inside the house.

“Meeting Blackie broke my heart and I wanted to change his last experiences in this life. No living creature should die feeling unloved if we can help it,” Drumond told The Huffington Post.

Blackie now knows love.

On Dec. 13, his former owners brought the dog to the Austin Animal Center — the city shelter in Austin, Texas, and thecountry’s largest no-kill community.

They told staff that he’d been sick for a long time — he had blood in his poop, among other things –but had never seen a veterinarian. He’d spent his whole life outside.

Blackie is 14 years…

Purple Kitten Rescued From Life As A Living Chew Toy | The Dodo

Life or Lunch?

No one can say for certain how the first weeks of Smurf’s life played out, but his broken body and frightened eyes hint at abuses unimaginable.

His spirit, however, remains intact.

Facebook/Nine Lives FoundationThe sweet but scared kitten, thought to be less than 2 months old, was dropped off at a San Jose animal shelter in California this week. While it was obvious that someone had dyed his fur a deep shade of purple, staff soon discovered his body was covered in deep bite marks and abrasions.

Rather than euthanizing Smurf, the shelter alerted the Nine Lives Foundation, a rescue center for injured and abused cats run by veterinarian Monica Rudiger.

For her, the young animal’s injuries were consistent with a shocking but little-known practice — people using kittens as live bait for dogs being trained to fight.

Facebook/Nine Lives Foundation“I don’t know what happened to him…

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
