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’s been found that altitude has greatly impacted languages that include ejective consonants. The language characteristic developed in these areas is due to the lessened effort the sound requires in thinner air. Linguists have long believed that environment contributes to vocabulary but stops short of influencing how a language sounds. New research has revealed that what they thought was wrong.It’s been found that altitude has greatly impacted languages that include ejective consonants. Ejective sounds aren’t used in English, but they are present in several languages in the world. They are marked by a distinct glottal stop, one that makes a sharp, explosive noise. Scholars have discovered a pattern in their geographical occurrence. It appears that in most cases, the languages are used among people living at high altitudes. Worldwide, 87 percent of languages using ejective consonants are found within about 300 miles of elevated land. The western areas of both North and South America show particularly dense ejective usage as do parts of East and South Africa.The working theory is that the language characteristic developed in these areas is due to the lessened effort the sound requires in thinner air. For this study high altitude was defined as being about 5 thousand feet or more above sea level.
Acne isn’t only found in humans. According to a study from scientists working in Italy, the bacteria that causes acne is also present in grape samples that were part of the study. Acne isn’t only found in humans. According to a study from scientists working in Italy, the bacteria that causes acne is also present in grape samples that were part of the study. The researchers found the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria on the bark and other tissue of a grapevine, making it the first bacteria to be found that was passed from humans to plants. Researchers who discovered the bacteria named it after the late musician and artist Frank Zappa, calling it the Propionibacterium acnes, Type Zappa. But grapes don’t get unsightly pimples as a symptom of the bacteria, and it might even play a beneficial role in its microbiome. Andrea Campisano, lead author of the study is quoted as saying: “We don't know what the grapevine is getting from its presence, but it's not fighting the bacteria. So
A horrific picture of a dog hanging from a second story balcony made the rounds on the internet immediately after it was posted. While millions of pet owners treat their dogs like family, there certainly are exceptions.A horrific picture of a dog hanging from a second story balcony made the rounds on the internet immediately after it was posted. A woman was responsible for capturing the image and sharing it.Almost right away, the police department in Greenville, South Carolina was flooded with messages from both Facebook and Twitter users, asking law enforcement officials to do something about the sickening act. Several residents called the station to report the photo. Animal control officers eventually arrived at the residence and spoke to the man who was inside the home. It took a little time for police to determine whether or not the photo was legitimate and if the animal pictured was actually real.The resident inside the condo, 23-year-old Tyler Smith reportedly admitted to putting a leash on the animal and hanging it from a balcony. However his reasoning for doing so far surpassed being bizarre. Smith claimed it had been raining so he hung the dog outside so it could go to the bathroom.Smith was charged with violating a city ordinance on pet care and he also received a fine for over $1,000.

Monica Lewinsky is going public about her affair with President Bill Clinton in a tell-all article appearing in the next issue of Vanity Fair.For years she’s remained so silent on the matter that rumors have circulated about a possible payoff by the Clintons. Lewinsky says that just isn’t true. She’s speaking out now because she wants to stop, “tiptoeing around my past—and other people’s futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. What this will cost me, I will soon find out.” The affair has already cost her quite a bit. She admits that in the past she’s experienced depression and had suicidal impulses. Many of those feelings returned after teenager Tyler Clementi took his own life following the release of a video showing him kissing another man. Lewinsky hopes that by sharing her story, she can help others experiencing “online humiliation and harassment”.
