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?

When someone yawns, the reflex is contagious and causes about half of the people who noticed the yawn to do the same. A new study from the University of Tokyo shows that human yawns are also contagious to dogs.When someone yawns, the reflex is contagious and causes about half of the people who noticed the yawn to do the same. A new study from the University of Tokyo shows that human yawns are also contagious to dogs. The study looked at 25 dogs of different breeds, and had their owners yawn at them, followed by having a stranger yawn at them.The dogs were more likely to yawn when their owner did, but if it was a fake yawn then it was only contagious to a few breeds. Teresa Romero from the University of Tokyo said: “"Our study suggests that contagious yawning in dogs is emotionally connected in a way similar to humans. (1,3,1) Although our study cannot determine the exact underlying mechanism operative in dogs, the subjects' physiological measures taken during the study allowed us to counter the alternative hypothesis of yawning as a distress response.” 14 of the dogs that participated in the study didn’t yawn at all. Not all people find yawns contagious either, but between 45 and 60 percent of healthy adult people do. Other primates have also been observed catching contagious yawns from each other.

A research team led by the University of Tokyo has discovered that giant sunfish spend half their day sunbathing to warm up so they can spend more time foraging for food in the water’s cold depths. Scientists may have figured out why sunfish float around the ocean’s surface for half the day--they’re warming up before diving deep for food.A team led by a researcher from the University of Tokyo discovered this behavior after studying the massive bony fish, which often weigh in at more than a ton and measure up to 11 feet across. They outfitted several members of the species with body-temperature monitoring thermometers and lighted cameras.Based on the data these instruments collected, it was determined that sunfish spend their day lounging at the surface to warm up and regulate body temperature which then allows them to forage for food in deep, cold water for a longer period of time.It was thought that the giant sea creatures only dined on jellyfish, but it turns out that what
A UK man has turned annoying telemarketing calls into personal profit by installing a higher rate phone line.A UK man has turned annoying telemarketing calls into personal profit by installing a higher rate phone line. Incoming callers are charged around 15 cents a minute, 70 percent of which he gets to bank. The line itself cost him 20 dollars to set up. He says he’s raked in approximately 480 dollars since setting up the line in the fall of 2011. The number of unsolicited sales calls he receives has dropped significantly, falling from about 30 a month to a little over 10. Now, he welcomes them, though, and wishes he got more of them. Among the ones he does receive he’s often asked why he has the weird number. After getting an explanation, many companies opt to continue to use it. He did admit he tries to keep all callers who contact him on that line talking as long as possible. The regulators don’t recommend that you do this at home, as the results can be risky.For example, failing to inform callers that they’re being charged a premium rate can result in fines.
