Good Samaritan Hunter Does Something Amazing When He Sees A Deer Caught In A Fence

Hunting, whether for sport or for food, usually ends with one or more dead animals. Some people think hunting is unethical, but most hunters do have ethical codes. An idea that is commonly included in these codes is that of "fair chase," which is defined as the "ethical, sportsmanlike, lawful pursuit and taking of any free-ranging wild animal in a manner that does not give the hunter an improper or unfair advantage."When a hunter came upon a deer stuck in a fence, his ethics dictated that he not shoot the young creature. Instead, he helped it.

It is incredibly rare to have a robot meet a sperm whale at these depths, but what they captured on film for a live audience is amazing.

How Close Are We To Finding Another Earth?

Do the maths: billions of planets per galaxy, and billions of galaxies in the universe. Its unlikely that only one of those has all the characteristics of our own Earth-sized, orbiting a Sun-like star, and slap bang in its habitable zone where water can form. Why are those characteristics so important? Well, Earth is the only planet we know to have life on it. It makes sense, therefore, that if we find a world exactly the same as our own, then it would at least be potentially habitable, and may have life existing on it presently. A so-called Earth 2.0 is the holy grail for planet hunters. So, how close are we, what are we looking for exactly, and what tools have we got? Given that it's officially exoplanet week, let's take a look at where we stand. How close are we? The chances are that ...
Police Are Looking For This Woman After She Did Something Terrible To Her Child

Police Are Looking For This Woman After She Did Something Terrible To Her Child

Uncategorized
In the United States, we have safe-haven laws, which are designed to protect babies whose parents conclude that they cannot care for them. Safe-haven laws state that a parent can leave a baby at drop-off locations like police stations, fire stations, and hospitals to be cared for. The parent will not face any charges related to abandonment and can remain anonymous. Most see these laws as good alternatives to abandoning a baby in an unsafe location or actively harming or killing the child. In Turkey, police are searching for a woman who abandoned her baby in a strange location, apparently seeing no other alternative without safe-haven laws to protect her. CCTV captured the woman leaving the newborn underneath a car and walkin...

The Science of Generosity: Why Giving Makes You So Happy

Uncategorized
When you were a kid, there was nothing better than receiving a gift. A wrapped present was a mystery story with an ending that was guaranteed to be excellent. You didn’t know exactly what was inside, but you knew it was for you, and it was probably something you wanted. We all eventually reach an age at which giving gifts becomes just as thrilling as it was receiving them as a child. You grow up to find that the joy of making someone happy is more powerful than you could have possibly imagined. There’s something inexplicably satisfying in witnessing people unwrap a gift and respond with unadulterated amazement and happiness.

She Weighed Just Half A Pound When They Found Her…But These Vets Saved Her Life

Uncategorized
There's a reason that puppies aren't fully weaned from their mother until they're between seven and eight weeks old. In addition to the emotional support, they need mom's nutritious milk and warmth to help them survive. Unfortunately though, stray dogs and orphaned pups often find themselves without a mom, making their odds of survival incredibly slim.That's just what happened to Lily when she was brought in to the San Jose Animal Care Center. A Good Samaritan found Lily alone and barely alive. They spent two days trying to help her recover by feeding her milk...

Growing up, I was rarely allowed to paint my nails. My mom considered the lacquer too mature for a teenager. But in a world where tweens have cell phones and just about everyone has a social media account -- I'm looking at you, babies and pets -- what is "too mature" anymore? Not much.Nowadays, you'll be hard-pressed to find me without painted tips and toenails, but the colorful polish is good for far more than just accessorizing an outfit. Here are just a few ways you can get the most out of your nail colors. 1. Instead of licking tons of envelopes -- bleh! -- seal them with some nail polish! Flickr / Lisa Brank 2.

The Science Of Slumber: How Your Sleep Habits Impact Your Personality

Michelle K. Anderson For some people, the sound of an alarm clock incites murderous rage, and rightfully so. The monotonous beeping has interrupted the sweet peaceful bliss of sleep and signified that it’s time to depart from the pleasant and warm confines of bed. It’s offensive. It’s wrong. Why, oh, why does the day have to begin?! These individuals know why they’re tired. They stayed up too late, most likely binging-watching some show they’ve already seen on Netflix. Or perhaps they are of the artistic persuasion and stayed up late to write, paint or play the guitar. Not everyone is like this; there are actually people out there who enjoy the morning. They revel in the fact that it’s a brand new day. They go to bed early and rise bl...
