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?
Recently, 3D printing helped saved the life of a little boy. Recently, 3D printing helped saved the life of a little boy. At only 14 months old, Roland Lian Cung Bawi was potentially facing death, due to numerous heart defects. Adding to the problem was that the child’s heart surgeon, Erle Austin from the Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, was receiving conflicting advice on how to operate and correct the issues based on two dimensional scans. Austin decided to turn to University of Louisville engineers for help. As a response, they used a template created from CT images and then utilized a 3D printer to make a polymer constructed model of the boy’s heart. All of the defects and complexities were clearly depicted in the replica. Once he could view the actual model, Austin knew exactly what he had to do to fix the problems, which would in turn give Roland a shot at a proper childhood.On February 10th, Austin operated on Roland and because of that 3D replica, he was able
A unique invention, called the Cuddle Mattress, incorporates slatted sections, allowing spooning side sleepers to dip their arm into one and avoid numbness.Wanting to cuddle, but having an arm that would fall asleep when he tried, Mehdi Mojtabavi designed a mattress that fulfilled his desires and cured his ills. His unique invention, called the Cuddle Mattress, incorporates slatted sections, allowing spooning side sleepers to dip their arm into one and avoid numbness. It’s also proven handy for stomach sleepers, who can wedge their feet into the lower slits. The inventor of the Cuddle Mattress sees it as much more than freedom from discomfort, however. Foremost, he notes the bonds that can be strengthened by it use, as embracing is a vital aspect of intimacy and relationship building.Too often, he says, cuddling is cut short because it can be exhausting. With the mattress, that isn’t so. It’s also been brought to his attention that individuals with physical ailments can benefit from it, as pain-inducing sleep postures can be avoided. Unfortunately, the Cuddle Mattress isn’t available for people to buy in stores or online. Not yet, anyway.Even though the mattress received multiple design awards and a lot of interest when it was first proposed, funding for its manufacture has yet to be secured.
At least thirteen people were injured in Reno after an experiment at a local museum went horribly wrong. At least thirteen people were injured in Reno after an experiment at a local museum went horribly wrong. The incident occurred on Wednesday following a routine, daily demonstration that is done at the Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum.The experiment is the simulation of a tornado, which involves the mixture of methyl alcohol and boric acid to create the whirling effect. City of Reno spokesman Matthew Brown says the aftermath wasn’t an explosion, but instead was a chemical flash which is similar to what happens when gasoline is thrown on fire. Museum visitors who were watching the presentation had been sitting down when the fire broke out. Right before the ‘flash’, the instructor added alcohol to the mixture. Of those who were injured, 9 were taken to a local medical center while the remaining 4 declined treatment for ‘flash’ burns. Injuries ranged from minor to moderate. The museum itself sustained smoke damage. Investigators with the Reno Fire Department are working with facility staffers to determine the cause of the flash. Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum released a statement noting “We would like to express our gratitude to all first responders that were on the scene within minutes of the incident. Our thoughts continue to be with all those affected.“
