    When a group of TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuers from British Columbia, Canada found an emaciated old cat, they knew they had to save him. TinyKittensMason the cat was spotted two years ago as an injured feral cat from a cat colony. Rescuers from TinyKittens, a rescue group based in Fort Langley, British Columbia, trapped him and brought him to the vet. They discovered that he had terminal illness but refused to give up. "A surprise diagnosis of advanced terminal kidney disease meant we couldn't return this fierce warrior to his home in the wild due to daily medical and feeding...

    This is a walk down memory lane as I relate what it was like growing up as a young boy in the early 1970s. I was in my early teenage years. I went to school, watched a lot of television, and played with my friends. Enjoy As strange as it seems, there is very little on the internet about what it was like growing up in the 1960s and 1970s. Its almost as if it was scrubbed from existence. In its place we now have the Obama narrative of a racist nation and terrible injustices. That narrative has nothing to...

    October 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) World-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has just released an extraordinary music video performed with his son, 21-year-old Matteo. Anyone who is a parent, anyone who knows the precious responsibility of being a mother or a father, will fully grasp the meaning of this piece, said Bocelli. Fall On Me is the first time I have duetted with my son Matteo Bocelli. While famous for his singing talent, Bocelli is also famous for his staunch pro-life views, which he has said are founded on his faith.

    Women seeking abortions will have to go to Planned Parenthood's St. Louis clinic or travel to neighboring states, said a Planned Parenthood spokesperson. EFFERSON CITY, Mo. Missouri is down to one clinic providing abortions Wednesday, after the only other clinic in the state that performs the procedure failed to adhere to new state requirements. Federal appeals court judges ruled last month that Missouri can enforce a requirement that doctors must have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals before they can perform abortions. The judges issued a mandate Monday for that rule to officially take effect. The Columbia Planned Parenthood clinic was...
  • Hirono defends sex-selective abortions

    Rep. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, a candidate for U.S. Senate, defended sex-selective abortions and criticized Senate Republicans for opposing abortions instigated because the fetus is a girl. "To many cultures, particularly the Asian culture, this presented the prospect of a doctor grilling an Asian woman for example," Hirono, a Japanese immigrant, said at the Netroots Nation convention. Hirono made clear that she did not oppose sex-selective abortions. "How can we criminalize a decision that should be up to the woman and her doctor?" she asked. Hirono also maintained that "there really is a war on women in Congress." Although President Obama...

    Moores Law: Life is Older than Earth Itself A Process that Began Billions of Years Before the Formation of Our Solar System Posted on Sep 24, 2018 As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like Moores law which states that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. The regression suggests that if life takes 10 billion years to evolve to the level of complexity associated with homo sapiens, then we may be among the first, if not the first, intelligent civilization in the Milky Way, negating Drakes Equation.Our Solar...

He spoke his mind."This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most," DeLay told Fox News on March 31. "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." DeLays strong language worried some Republicans. They pointed...

As the household grew and she continued to age, they had less time to be with her and she started having some urinary tract issues. Chatons Orphelins Montral"Her former owner contacted a local veterinary clinic to make an appointment, but it wasn't for treatment for the cat.

    Some June 2005 reports in the British media portrayed the situation as scientists creating scary zombie dogs, but the reality is actually a hopeful one, abetting life not death. Badly injured people and animals may soon be kept in lengthy and reliable suspended animation until they can be properly treated. For this, scientists at the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have come up with an improved version of their technique in which animals' blood is drained out and then replaced with a cold salt solution. (This method was used in their experiments at least as early as...

    You know, many of us work for a living. As such, if you have a university degree, the chances are that you migrated to a corporate job in a corporate environment. You probably received a decent salary, a nice (if bland and sterile) working environment, and considered yourself well on the way towards corporate greatness in a solid career. Its a nice fantasy. Its all a big lie. Most Americans waste their lives working in this environment. They get up and go to work. They deal with traffic, an uncaring boss, and suffer through the various rules that HR implements....

    Democratic-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, as Breitbart News reported, was born in the Bronx and raised in the affluent suburb of Westchester, told Hawaii Democrats on Thursday evening that her life has been shaped by “an unaddressed history of imperialism and poverty.” Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Hawaii Democratic congressional candidate Kaniela Ing ahead of this weekend’s primary election and argued that Hawaii felt like a “kindred home” because she also comes “from a place of colonized people.” Ocasio-Cortez said that she and Ing had similar life experiences even though they grew up worlds apart because they both lost their fathers...

    A teeny black kitten came to a veterinary clinic, in need of foster care. He was very wobbly and extremely tiny for his age. Danielle @fostercatsandkittensAbout a month ago, Gus the kitten was taken into The Poppy Foundation at Bonanza Cat Hospital in Las Vegas after he was found on the streets in the brutal summer temperatures. "It was thought that Gus had Cerebellar Hypoplasia because he was very unstable.

    When we were young, we were taught how to act, and told how to behave. The opinions of our peers decided what we would do, who we would date, and how successful our life could be. For those of us who never left our home town, these demands have become forged as the tightest shackles that bind us to the demands and needs of others. However, once we leave that environment, we find ourselves in a new place with new friends and a new life. We are thus given and provided the opportunity to reconstruct our life. We are provided...

    Do you remember what it was like going to High School in the 1970s? I do. I most certainly do. In fact, the older I get the more removed that I am from it. As time passes, it starts to look like some kind of a scene from The Twilight Zone. The truth is that the kind of life that I had growing up is really alien to the way kids grow up today. That is worrisome, and it really concerns me. When an American intern comes in to work for me, I am stunned just how absolutely helpless they...

    Today, Americans have taken so much for granted. We look at our life and think that it is as it has always been. Indeed, it is assumed that the way things are today have always been that way. Yet, the simple and plain truth is that America has changed. Over the last few decades there has been tremendous changes at all levels of American society and culture. For instance, it is a recent phenomenon that restaurants can charge $8 for a cup of coffee. Or, that we have to take a urine sample to get employed. Casual day on Friday,...

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics June jobs report showed that the US economy added 213,000 jobsbringing the number of employed Americans to 155,576,000the tenth record high of the Trump presidency. Democratic National Chairman and former Secretary of Labor under Obama, Tom Perez warned voters to not be taken in by this mirage of the so-called good life. Remember, each person pushed into a 40-hour-a-week job has lost at least 40 hours of leisure time, Perez pointed out. Is this a trade-off that truly benefits everyone? Most jobs are boring. Many are dangerous. Shouldnt the goal be to work toward the...

The faith has been frayed, tangled and torn to the point where the believers whom John addressed were confused as to who knew God genuinely and who didnt. What does it mean to know him who is from the beginning? To be strong and have the Word of God abiding in you? Most importantly, who is the God and Father of...
