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?

It is believed that this water has nectar in it and will soothe the throat of Shiva who gulp the poison.The picturesque pilgrimage in the hinterlands of the Himalayas is the most sacred spot where Ganga, the stream of life, touched earth for the first time.According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Ganga took the form of a river to absolve the sins of King Bhagiratha's predecessors, following his severe penance of several centuries. Lord Shiva received into his matted locks to minimize the immense impact of her fall. She came to be called Bhagirathi at her legendary source.King Sagar, after slaying the demons on earth decided to stage an Ashwamedha Yajna as a proclamation of his supremacy. The horse which was to be taken on an uninterrupted journey around the earth was to be accompanied by the King's 60,000 sons born to Queen Sumati and one son Asamanja born of the second queen Kesani. Indra, supreme ruler of the gods feared that he might be deprived of his celestial throne if the 'Yagya' succeeded and then took away the horse and tied it to the ashram of Kapil Muni, who was then in deep meditation.The sons of the King Sagar searched for the horse and finally found it tied near the meditating Kapil. Sixty thousand angry sons of King Sagara stormed the ashram of sage Kapil. When he opened his eyes, the 60,000 sons had all perished, by the curse of sage Kapil. Bhagiratha, the grandson of King Sagar, is believed to have meditated to please the Goddess Ganga enough to cleanse the ashes of his ancestors, and liberate their souls, granting them salvation or Moksha.This footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of HD imagery from South Asia.

Researchers from the University of Buffalo in New York have made it their mission to equip oceans with Wi-Fi. Researchers from the University of Buffalo in New York have made it their mission to equip oceans with Wi-Fi. Doing so, they say, will help out both humanity and sea life in a number of ways. Those range from earlier detection of tsunamis to the ability to protect marine animals from oncoming shipping traffic. The greatest benefit better oceanic Internet service would provide is the ability to monitor happenings in real time and over a broader area. Current underwater electronic communication systems incorporate sensors attached to the sea floor and receptors hitched to buoys and even sea turtles. Not only is the transport of information slow it’s limited as not all of the receptors communicate with one another. In addition to creating a more complete picture of what’s going on in the ocean, WiFi will allow that information to be sent to an array of enabled devices above the surface.Earlier detection of potential disasters, for example, could save lives by allowing people to get a jump on evacuation. One of the hurdles the project has yet to clear, though, is bridging the gap between the unique and incompatible requirements of underwater and land wireless communications.

Louis Cherry and his wife obtained a building permit and started construction on their dream home, but when a neighbor hired a lawyer and complained, the couple's building permit was revoked leaving the future uncertain. The dream of building a house can all too often turn into a nightmare. Louis Cherry and his wife set their sights on a historic Oakwood neighborhood, near the center of Raleigh, North Carolina.They purchased a parcel of land in the area on Euclid Street. Of course, they wanted to place a house on the plot, but the process wasn’t exactly easy.The Oakwood Historic District contains beautiful older houses from the 19th- and 20th-century. In order to preserve the nostalgic element, the Raleigh Historic Development Commission oversees new construction.Louis Cherry, who is a popular architect in the area, decided that the style of his house would be basic. His design showcased a simple two story home with nothing that stood out or could be considered modern.After a four-hour long hearing, the Historic Development Commission agreed the house wouldn’t tarnish the neighborhood and granted the couple legal permission to build. However once construction began, a neighbor across the street, real-estate agent Gail Wiesner, hired a lawyer to appeal the commission’s decision. In February of this year, the house was already partially built and that’s when the Board of Adjustment voted in favor of there being ‘no rational basis’ to approve the house. The also revoked Cherry and his wife’s building permit.Cherry said he wished he’d hired his own attorneys sooner and his wife noted that the battle has resulted in significant additional expense. Thus far the situation remains unresolved.
