A group of students reportedly lured a dog to its death intentionally. They tossed the ball across a busy road, knowing that the animal would run after it.
A college in Ireland is currently investigating a troubling incident. Authorities at the University of Limerick claimed that a group of students lured a dog to its death intentionally.
A nearby resident on College Court Drive spoke about the act claiming that a group of drunken college goers had gathered on property, located near a busy road. A small dog was attracted to the crowd and joined them out of curiosity.
The students decided to play a game with the innocent canine. They purposely waited until a van was driving down the street. Then they tossed the ball across the road, knowing that the dog would run after it.
Sadly the pooch did just that. The animal was struck by the van and killed.
To make the situation even more atrocious, the students were laughing after the dog was hit. A petition has been signed seeking punishment for those responsible.
How do you think the students should be disciplined? Should they be suspended from the University?

A team of scientists have published a study on the material called graphene that might be the key to the next wave of electronic devices. Because graphene can carry electrons without any resistance at room temperature, which in physics is called ballistic transport, it is an efficient conductor of electricity. A team of scientists have published a study on the material called graphene that might be the key to the next wave of electronic devices. Because graphene can carry electrons without any resistance at room temperature, which in physics is called ballistic transport, it is an efficient conductor of electricity. Conductors currently used in electronic devices, like copper, are resistant to the electrons and are slower at transferring the electricity than graphene has proven to be. Scientists from Georgia Tech grew small graphene ribbons on the side of silicon carbide ridges, instead of making a sheet of graphene and cutting out individual ribbons. They heated the material to one thousand degrees Celsius, which evaporated the silicon, and left a 40 nanometer wide ribbon of graphene.The results of the study found it to be ten times more effective than previous theories of electron transport. Other experts say that when applied to a larger scale, the minor imperfections on a graphene ribbon would slow down the flow of electrons.
When it was announced Miley Cyrus landed the video of the year award for ‘Wrecking Ball’, she decided to let someone else accept the honor. Instead of walking on stage, she allowed her date, who is a former homeless teen, to do it for her. At the MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus showed the world her soft side. When it was announced she landed the video of the year award for ‘Wrecking Ball’, she decided to let someone else accept the honor.Instead of walking on stage, she allowed her date, who is a former homeless teen, to do it for her. After he stepped on the platform next to Jimmy Fallon, he introduced himself as Jesse. Fom there, he said “I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now. I know this because I am one of these people.” Jesse chronicled his struggles living on the street and asked fans to visit Cyrus’ Facebook page where they’ll be able to dona
A Colorado Springs woman bought a PlayStation 4 on Craigslist, but ended up getting a PS4 box filled with towels. Buyer Beware. ‘Tis the season for crazed and sometimes desperate shopping, which means thieves are on high alert for easy opportunities.One Colorado Springs thief, for example, took advantage of the PlayStation 4 frenzy.The gaming system is tough to find, so when a Colorado woman saw one advertised for sale on Craigslist she jumped at the chance to pick one up for her son.What she ended up with, however, was a PS4 box filled with towels. The transaction started off like a fairly normal Craigslist buy – she contacted the seller and arranged a meeting.She met him in a motel lobby and handed over the money. He gave her a Play Station 4 box that didn’t feel empty. By the time she opened up the box to check the merchandise, the seller was running out the door with her cash. He reportedly had a getaway vehicle at the ready and the last she saw of him he was racing off in a bluish green Toyota.She described the man to police as being just under 6 feet tall and wearing a grey hoodie that covered most of his face.
A new safety system in a vehicle wakes up sleepy drivers. DSS tracks eye and face movement using sensors, cameras and infrared light to notify an alarm system if the driver appears to be falling asleep. The largest mining equipment manufacturer in the world is installing technology to keep heavy machinery operators awake while they are behind the wheel. Driver Safety Solution or DSS is the system that Caterpillar has chosen to install in their trucks.An Australian company called Seeing Machines had their system chosen over 21 different contenders. DSS tracks eye and face movement using sensors, cameras and infrared light to notify an alarm system if the driver appears to be falling asleep. The system also uses GPS to make sure the vehicle is moving before starting a motor in the seat that causes it to vibrate and alert the driver. According to Caterpillar’s estimates, being tired was a factor in 65 percent of truck hauling accidents during 2007. Other technologies under development are focused on self driving cars, essentially making the driver obsolete.In 2014, Audi and Mercedes are reportedly releasing cars that can operate their own steering, acceleration and braking using a new technology in the stop and go conditions of a traffic jam.
