Police claim a disabled pet dog charged them during a home sweep, forcing them to shoot. However, the dog’s autopsy reportedly shows that the elderly dog was incapable of this attack and instead was running away when he was killed. Demand the police stop killing innocent pets.

It may seem like bananas should be peeled from the stem, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Next time you want to eat a banana try peeling it from the opposite side. Just squeeze that little nub on the end. You’ll be happily surprised.=!
A story recently went viral about a Colombian man who risked his life to save a dog that was hanging from a balcony. The dog, who belongs to the man’s upstairs neighbors, was caught in the railing and was close to falling to the ground. The neighbor, whose name is Diego Andrés Dávila Jimenez, made a dangerous climb from his balcony up to his neighbors’ in order to save the dog.
For animal lovers, there wouldn’t be a second thought about doing the same, whether it was their own pet, someone else’s or an animal in the wild. People go great lengths for animals every day. Here are just a few inspirational examples of them.

I recently came across an incredibly heartwarming story on USHumor.com (not a funny story), that will melt your heart and maybe bring a tear to your eye. There are millions of people who have pets. Their pets become like another person in their family. They go to stores, walks, car or truck rides, trips, and a host of other things together. Pets grow up with their owners and become an integral part of their masters lives.
For many people, when their pets die, it can be absolutely devastating. There are some people that I know (and I am 53 years old), that still claim to this day, that losing their pet was one of the hardest and saddest time in their lives.
Thus, today’s story and the sweet response that someone decided to do to help mend a broken heart…..
Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died…

While browsing on Google, the Earth Day web site kept forcibly opening. And, who is among the Earth Day sponsors? Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) located in Woods Hole Massachusetts: http://www.earthday.org/earth-day/earth-day-2016-partners/ Wikipedia tells us that Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) should not be confused with the nearby (and now infamous) Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI). And as late as 2002 the founder of WHRC, George Woodell, raised concerns about the impacts of nuclear war on the environment, http://whrc.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/2002-04-TooSmallForWar.pdf , whereas WHOI appears to have been long been tied in with the military. However, the two have recently been joined together in a consortium: http://www.woodsholeconsortium.org/news/consortium.html They are also listed as a WHOI funder-partner.
We turn then to the now infamous Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) with its tainted funding ties and home to nervous…

As technology grows, we find ourselves now able to print 3D objects. Usually this is a complicated task and involves several math equations performed on a special software on a computer. However, researchers and engineers have created a new device that allows you to print 3D objects right from your smartphone. The best part is, it is completely affordable…Like only $99!
This device is compact and light weight; the entire printer weighs just under 2 pounds. This is achieved due to the fact the major hardware of the application is actually your smartphone.
The biggest key element of OLO is within the resin of the device that it utilizes to create prints. The company of OLO labels this as daylight resin, a brand new technology designed to react to the type of light that is being emitted by your smartphone touchscreen.
In order to use OLO, simply download their…

In an unprecedented tale of survival and hope against all odds, a formerly captive dolphin named Sampal has given birth to a healthy calf after finding her own way back to her family and freedom in the open ocean.
Sampal’s story began in 2009, when she was accidentally netted by fishermen off the coast of South Korea. Rather than returning her back to the water, as the law dictates, those who caught her instead did the unthinkable — they sold her to a local marine park featuring dolphin shows.
It’s there that, for nearly four years, Sampal languished in a tiny pool where she was forced to perform tricks for entertainment. Though thoroughly robbed of any semblance of a natural life, she evidently never stopped longing for her life in the wild.
Fortunately, reprieve from her captivity came in 2013 when, at the behest of animal activists, a Korean high court ordered Sampal be set free. Along with other wild-caught dolphins held captive, she was moved to a sea pen to begin months of rehabilitation to ready her for release.
Sampal, however, had no interest in waiting. Months ahead of schedule, she slipped through a tear in the pen and disappeared into the ocean beyWikiped
Though there were concerns initially that Sampal was not yet reequipped with the skills needed to survive at sea, those were soon quelled. Just days after escaping, she was spotted 60 miles away, swimming with a pod believed to be her original family.
Sampal was finally home — but her story doesn’t end there.
Last month, a team from two Korean universities started seeing her again, only this time she was in the company of a calf.
“We have spotted Sampal and her baby swimming in a mother-calf position many times during the recent three weeks,” researcher Jang Soo-jin told the news agency Yonhap. “Strict criteria applied show that they are parent and child.”
This is believed to be the first time a dolphin freed from captivity has gone on to start a family in the wild, and it need not be the last.
While Sampal’s offspring will hopefully never know the sad life her mother had to endure, there are countless others like her in marine parks around the globe — all eager to overcome imprisonment to forge their own new legacies of freedom.

Cattle ranchers want to convert a wide swath of rainforest into ranches that would decimate the environment. This would destroy the habitat for an extraordinary amount of wildlife and plant biodiversity and release 12.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. We must take action now to stop these destructive cattle ranches.
