    Losing a pet is heart-wrenching. Anyone who denies this either never had a pet or never had a heart to wrench. We had plenty of time to prepare for our girl's passing, and I mistakenly believed that this would make it easier or somehow a relief when she died. It was not easy and it definitely was not a relief. Zoey was a salty old broad to the end, and the departure of her larger-than-life presence has left us with a huge hole in our world; I can't believe how much I miss her. Of course in thinking about her...

    This column isn't about politics, so if you're looking for something about Donald Trump, you've just read his only mention. This column is about life and, more specifically, death. And even more specifically how we, as a species, wait too long to let people know how much they matter to us. Eulogies are, almost without exception, touching and funny. They're where those closest to someone we've just lost tells stories and expresses feelings more than likely ignored while the subject was alive. They're great for the healing process, but they're a day late and a dollar short when it comes...

While that amount is still a lot of oil, it is spread out in time over an entire year, so is much less devastating to marine life than oil from a huge spill. Scientists will continue to research the interactions between marine life and oil, and will look deeper into which types of phytoplankton benefit the most from this situation.

    What's the purpose of being pro baby/pro life of an innocent, unborn, precious life, if you have a list of loopholes that just perpetuate the culture of death. And, might I not add, having all the loopholes of rape, mother's health, incest, are simply proof that you're not pro life at all. This is directed squarely at Donald Trump who is a liar and deceiver. The people on Free Republic are either falling for or looking the other way when it comes to Donald lying about his position on abortion. Isn't life life? Why should you advocate killing a baby...

    Liquor is abundant in Arabic culture, its role a liquid of material and spiritual pleasure; considering that the Arab heritage is poetic as well as literary, liquor and other spirits abound in these works, their presence being felt in many types of poetic works. This makes liquor an element in reading material, a depiction meant to show splendor and fame, or a catchall term for drinks similar to it. So that one may attempt to approach the poetic truth, characteristics are attributed to liquor, like being a drink with the ability to transcend that which is sensual or habitual (any...

    There are moments in our national history that have called Americans to bend the arc of history towards justice. Each moment has required exceptional leadership. Today, we commemorate one such leader who illuminated our nation by his courage and dedication to the truth. Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. understood the American potential more fully than it was actualized at the time. He challenged the distorted conventional acceptance of a "separate but equal" citizenry. Instead, he drew upon that promise of our founding that every person is "endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights." Reverend King reminded communities across the...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | January 17, 2016 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    When Ben Carson was rising in the polls, Donald Trump was quick to attack the former neurosurgeon for being "pro-abortion not so long ago." The attack was more than a bit hypocritical because Trump himself was "very" pro-abortion not so long ago. In 1999, Tim Russert asked Trump if he would support a ban on "abortion in the third-trimester" or "partial-birth abortion." "No," Trump replied. "I am pro-choice in every respect." Trump explained his views may be the result of his "New York background." Now that Ted Cruz has attacked Trump's "New York values," Trump's views on abortion will be...

In their paper published in the journal Geology, the team describes where the fossilized cells were found, their testing techniques and why their finding is important. Scientists believe that life first came to exist on planet Earth approximately three and a half to four billion years ago, a time called the Archaean aeon, when there was not yet an ozone layer to filer out UV radiation, or oxygen...

The man, his mother, and his lawyers, have filed a lawsuit in an attempt to save the man’s life. His attorney, Joe Nixon, told Breitbart Texas, “A criminal...

    "....The current effort to demonize Planned Parenthood feels different. This is, literally, a manufactured issue, cobbled together from doctored videotapes and overheated accusations. The organization's activities have been so mischaracterized, and the practice of providing fetal tissue so overblown and so manipulated by lawmakers and politicians, that blame for the ensuing violence falls more heavily on them. This argument, I concede, rests on a potentially slippery and subjective slope. Holding advocates responsible for such unintended consequences risks dampening speech. Second, conservatives have blamed Black Lives Matter protesters for inspiring the killing of police officers; what makes my critique fair and...

The discovery indicates that life may have begun shortly after the planet formed 4.54 billion years ago. The graphite is older than the zircon containing it, the researchers said. They know the zircon is 4.1 billion years old, based on its ratio of uranium to lead; they don't know how much older the graphite is.The carbon contained in the zircon has a characteristic signature -- a specific ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-13 -- that...

But something has happened to Mars, it lost its water. But recent photos from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show long, dark streaks - some as long as 100m - which scientists believe could be a live source of flowing water - and, just maybe, could prove the existence of life (or...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. –  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today released the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act:“Today, Senate Democrats voted against protecting children, capable of feeling pain, by blocking legislation that would stop abortions from being performed on babies older than five months. Despite the Senate’s refusal to take up this legislation, I am confident that one day America will end the horrific practice of late-term abortion. Until that day comes, I will stand resolutely with those fighting to protect the most precious gift of all: life itself. Each life is a gift from...

    fully formedheart beatinglegs kicking And she dared. As a woman whod earned the right to be on a stage historically dominated by men, Carly Fiorina dared to speak for those aborted alive, for the most basic right denied them by progressives: the right to live. She didnt have to raise the topic at all, but she was the perfect candidate to have done so. She dared Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and by extension, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and all those pseudo-champions of women to watch the video of a near-term child whose life is snuffed out for the convenience...

    One of the worst things about Obamacare is that it provides taxpayer funding of abortion. This is one of the nearly countless reasons why Obamacare must be repealed, and its one of the core reasons why it is crucial for Republican presidential candidates to show they have an alternative that would lead to repeal. So far, only Scott Walker has stepped up in this regard. For pro-life voters, this should matter greatly.

    One afternoon in early August, I got off a plane in Gulfport, Mississippi with my friend J. Warner Jim Wallace. We were scheduled to speak at a church up in Hattiesburg with our other friend Frank Turek. We had about three hours to make the one-hour drive so we had plenty of time even though our flight had landed thirty minutes late. As we headed up U.S. 49 to Hattiesburg we passed a number of small towns in South Mississippi where many of my relatives were born and raised. My parents met in Gulfport back in 1952 and most...

    The Daily Caller News Foundation has obtained Office Depots explanation for why it refused to serve a woman who wanted to print 500 anti-Planned Parenthood flyers. Maria Goldstein, 42, of Illinois requested the flyers Aug. 20, but an employee refused, citing corporate policy. Goldstein said she is being discriminated against because of her religious beliefs and obtained legal counsel. Office Depot has stood by its refusal and says in the letter that it refused because the flyer is graphic and hate speech that persecutes those who support abortion rights. Office Depot says it has nothing to do with the womans...
