A Man Found Six Abandoned Hairless Puppies And No One Could Tell Theyre Great Pyrenees

Here is another rescue story, which at the same time shows the unbelievable ignorance of some people and the heroic compassion of others. On a cold December morning, a man stumbled upon six crusty puppies in the woods of Alabama on his way to work. The poor creatures were in terrifying, life-threatening condition and were trying to keep warm by cuddling against each other. The puppies, who hardly looked like dogs with a bald pink and chapped appearance, were definitely too young to wander the forests without a mother, and were destined for the worst without immediate help and professional care. The four-legged siblings were rushed to a nearby shelter in Sylacauga, Alabama and the staff were shocked by the …

Sears sues former CEO Eddie Lampert for ‘thefts’ of company assets

New York (CNN Business)The remains of defunct Sears Holdings is suing Eddie Lampert, the man who was its previous CEO and primary shareholder, alleging he improperly stripped the company of assets as it hurdled toward bankruptcy. Mnuchin did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the suit. The suit claims that a number of transactions that Lampert conducted while he was CEO of Sears Holdings were done for his and ESL’s advantage, rather than in the best interest of the company. The suit points to the sale of stores and real estate to real estate firm Seritage Growth Properties (SRG), which counted Lampert and ESL as investors. Those stores were then leased back to Sears or closed to …

Hospital Gives Kids Mini Cars To Drive Into Surgery So They Would Be Less Stressed

Having surgery can be an incredibly stressful and scary experience, even for the toughest of us who know exactly what to expect.

So anything that hospital staff can do to ease the anxiety before surgery is hugely beneficial. And what is more relaxing than cruising around the wards in a toy car?

His students were getting killed. So, Principal Cook took action and created a safe space for them.

When Akbar Cook arrived at West Side High School in Newark, he knew something needed to change. Principal Cook saw that the high schoolers he served faced serious challenges in their community, including gang violence and drugs. After his first summer with the school—during which two students were killed—Cook decided to take action. He approached the school’s Alumni Association to brainstorm ideas for giving students more structured activities to keep them off the streets. With the help of volunteers and fundraisers, they launched the Lights On program in the summer of 2016. Now in its fourth year, the program has proven to be a resounding success. The high school offers students a safe space with fun activities every Friday night …

A topless selfie cost a middle school teacher her job. She’s fighting back citing gender discrimination.

Lauren Miranda, a middle school math teacher, was fired after a shirtless photo she sent to her boyfriend back in 2016 ended up in her student’s hands. Miranda didn’t choose to send the photos to her students — or anyone other than her boyfriend at the time. It’s quite baffling that the school that employed her felt justified in ending her employment for their distribution. But the case goes deeper than that. Miranda feels the consequence she endured has more to do with gender discrimination. She believes if she were a man, her job wouldn’t have been in jeopardy. That’s why she’s refusing to walk away without a fight. In addition to a $3 million gender discrimination suit — think …

Stephen Colbert and Oscar the Grouch’s new duet reminds us that things aren’t so bad, after all.

You don’t need anyone to tell you that things…are not at their most optimal right now. And if that’s got you down, you’re not alone. Stephen Colbert is also feeling the crushing weight of the news cycle on his shoulders. That’s why he decided to take a walk around the block (recommended!) to feel a little bit better about the fact that we may all end up living in trash cans one day. But wait: What’s so bad about living in a trash can? That’s the question that Oscar the Grouch has when Colbert encounters him on his walk. And that’s all the lead-in you need for this adorable duet about how things will (probably, hopefully) get better. Hope it …

NYC Warns Anti-Vaxxers Not To Deliberately Expose Unvaccinated Children To Measles

New York City has declared a public health emergency in response to a measles outbreak in Brooklyn. The city has ordered mandatory measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccinations for several zip codes in Brooklyn, and will issue fines to people not complying with the order. There have been nearly 300 cases of measles in the city, particularly concentrated in Orthodox Jewish communities in Williamsburg in Brooklyn, Buzzfeed News reports.  The leaders of the Orthodox Jewish community support people getting vaccinated, but uptake of the MMR vaccine has been low in the community itself, with resistance being “fueled by a small group of anti-vaxxers in these neighborhoods“. Anti-vaxxers have been specifically targeting the Orthodox Jewish community with misinformation. Peter Hotez, Professor of Pediatrics and Dean of the National …

Weather Channel’s Latest Immersive Video Reveals Future Of Below Sea Level America

One of the biggest problems with trying to get people to care about climate change, enough to take action now, and not leave it until it’s too late, is that it’s hard to imagine it in real terms.

No stranger to fighting climate change skeptics, last year the Weather Channel released an amazing video showing the devastating effects of storm surges from hurricanes, like Florence, which hit the Carolinas in September 2018. …
