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?
Several airlines have discovered that making the economy seats even smaller helps bring in dollars in other ways. Airlines looking for bigger profits have found the answer to their quest in the coach cabin. Several have discovered that making the economy seats even smaller helps bring in dollars in other ways. One is that it gives them more room to work with in the pricier premium seat areas. This allows airlines to lure in higher ticket price customers by tempting them with amenities like fully reclining seats. It also means there will be no resulting losses in the number of saleable fares in economy class, as populating coach with smaller seats means that there’s room for more of them. The other thing airlines are loving about the newly downscaled seats in coach is that they are lighter than previous models. Even with the extras, they add less weight and thus fewer gallons of fuel are required to stay aloft. Customers haven’t been as thrilled about them. The change in seating pitch prompted a passenger to liken the experience to sitting in a hole.In an attempt to distract fliers from their discomfort, one airline noted that they plan to increase snack availability and electronic entertainment. Said a spokesman, "With food and TV, people are mesmerized."
Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) presented an exhibition, Rediscovering India 1961-2011, showcasing its achievements through excavations, popular monuments and successful conservation projects carried out from 1961 till 2011. A similar exhibition was held in Delhi in 1961 as the department completed 100 years of work. More than 3600 Indian heritage monuments and archaeological sites are under the management of ASI.There were 307 objects on display including some retrieved antiquities and four fibre glass replicas. The antiquities have been selected from all the major periodic divisions of Indian history (prehistory to modern history) and from different regions of the country. In addition there will be some photographs, map, illustrations and explanatory charts and write-ups.The earliest artifacts in the exhibition are the prehistoric stone tools used by primitive man when he was a hunter/food gatherer. The pottery which first appeared during Neolithic period is also on display. A major attraction is the objects belonging to the Harappan culture which include the inscribed seals, beads, pottery, terracotta figurines, etc. The furrow marks which are the first evidence of agriculture at Kalibangan and the oldest signboard at Dholavira, both discovered through excavations and belonging to Harappan period are photographically displayed. The objects from Megalithic culture are interesting as they were put in the burials under life after death concept. The bronzes from Sirpur (M.P.) belonging to 7th-8th century with Brahmanical and Buddhist affiliation are landmark finds of early medieval period witnessing remarkable metallurgical skills of contemporary artist. The antiquities from early, medieval and modern periods of history are represented by a variety of objects made in terracotta, stone, metal and household utility items, ornaments, weapons, beads, coins, inscriptions, pottery, etc. An outstanding exhibit is the fibre glass replica of a relief panel from Kanaganahalli near Sannati in Karnataka depicting King Asoka with his consort which is the first sculpture of the legendary Mauryan emperor.

Next time you’re out on the streets, stay far away from men driving blue BMW's. According to a recent study, they’re the most rage-filled drivers on the road.Next time you’re out on the streets, stay far away from men driving blue BMW’s. According to a recent study, they’re the most rage-filled drivers on the road. Not only are they angriest, says the research, they’re the most aggressive.The results were compiled by the website VoucherCodesPro after they polled over 2800 British motorists about their experiences on the road. Drivers said they lost their tempers behind the wheel multiple times a month – 7 for men and 3 for women. Friday’s after work commute was the most likely to elicit the shouting of an obscenity or two. Monday’s trip back to the job wasn’t reported as being a pleasant, uneventful one either. Beyond swearing, typical rage-fueled behavior behind the wheel includes erratic driving, general shouting, and obscene gesturing. Some, of course, take it to extremes, and involve others in both arguments and assaults. Once you’ve managed to clear your path of your biggest dangers, the men driving blue Beemers, there are a couple more you might want to be on the watch for.Male drivers of Land Rovers and Audis proved to be no picnic to be on the road with either.
2013 was not a great year for gold, with the precious metal experiencing its biggest price drop in over 3 decades. 2013 was not a great year for gold, with the precious metal experiencing its biggest price drop in over 3 decades. At the beginning of the year, gold prices hovered around the 17 hundred dollar-per-ounce range. By late December, that figure had plummeted 28 percent, landing at around 12 hundred. Prior to the recent downturn, gold had enjoyed a 12-year run of increases, reaching an historical value peak in 2011. During that time, prices quintupled. Now, the trend among investors is to ditch commodities and get further into equities. Throughout 2013 many dumped their gold holdings and re-invested the money elsewhere. Catalysts for the change of heart are several in number, and include the financial meltdown in Cyprus and changes in the Federal Reserve System’s stimulus initiatives. Among the only places where purchasing remained strong was in India and China. As bad as 2013 ended up being, market watchers believe that 2014 will be even worse.Some predict that prices will drop as low as a thousand dollars an ounce. Economist Roger Nightingale of RDN Associates has an even more dire outlook. He said, "I think it could go to $500 quite easily before it turns up again."
According to researchers from Pennsylvania State University, the raw chicken sold at farmers’ markets has a higher content of bacteria like Salmonella and Campylobacter than organic and non-organic chicken bought from the grocery store.According to researchers from Pennsylvania State University, the raw chicken sold at farmers’ markets has a higher content of bacteria like Salmonella and Campylobacter than organic and non-organic chicken bought from the grocery store. The researchers bought 100 whole chickens from farmers’ markets, and 100 whole chickens from grocery stores. Half of the grocery store poultry was organic. A possible explanation for the discrepancy in the number of bacteria is that farmer’s market vendors who process under 20 thousand chickens a year do not have the same Department of Agriculture inspection standards as larger suppliers. The data from the study shows that the raw chicken tested from farmers’ markets had the most bacteria infections with 90 percent testing positive for Campylobacter and 28 percent for Salmonella. Of the grocery stores chicken in comparison, “28 percent of the organic chickens tested positive for Campylobacter and 20 percent for Salmonella, while 52 percent of the nonorganic chickens were contaminated with Campylobacter and 8 percent with Salmonella.” According to one of the study’s authors, all of the bacteria would be killed as long as the chicken is properly cooked at up to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
The FDA announced that they are again safety testing caramel coloring, which is often added to soft drinks and other edibles. The FDA announced that they are again safety testing caramel coloring, which is often added to soft drinks and other edibles. In the many previous trials conducted by the agency, the additive has never been found to pose a health risk, but in light of new information discovered by Consumer Reports it will take another look at them.The advocacy group said that their researchers found a range of levels of 4-methylimidazole, also known as 4-MEI, which is a potential carcinogen present in several beverages. Small doses, like those found in sodas, haven’t been proven to cause harm and no federal guidelines exist, but some states do have limits on the amount that products can contain without carrying a warning label.Consumer Reports says they’ve found amounts higher than those allowed in California being sold in that state. Among the products specifically called out for over-use is Pepsi. PepsiCo responded by assuring the public that they’ve lowered levels in the past, and are in compliance with every law that exists in all places their products are sold. The FDA says they’re reviewing the new data, but didn’t mention what it entails.
