    Arkansas Matters ^ | 6-28-2016 | Drew Petrimoulx
    The video is disturbing. A 16-year-old boy flashes two middle fingers to the camera. On one hand, he's wearing brass knuckles. Then, he winds up and delivers a devastating punch to a victim with his back turned. When the victim is on the ground, the suspect delivers three more blows to the head. "Especially when you have young victims in a case, it's something we're going to take very seriously," said 20th Judicial District Prosecutor Cody Hiland. The suspect is Kane Millsaps. He was arrested earlier this month for felony battery. Even though he's still a minor, Hiland says he...

    With coats of corkscrew curls and ears that flop at the tips, the latest recognised breed of dog could well be the cutest. Breeders have been working tirelessly in the US over the past two decades in a quest to get the pumi officially noticed – and their hard work paid off. To become officially recognised by the American Kennel Club (AKC), the fluffy canine had to meet a population quota among a host of other criteria.

    The infamous Swedish Moose Test can make or break sales in certain parts of the world. It aims to re-create what could happen if a moose suddenly appeared in your path, and you needed to make an emergency maneuver. We’ve already seen this sort of thing once before, but in case you missed it the first time, here’s another reminder of why it’s so important. It’s mainly because moose tend to be so large that they crush the car, imperiling the lives of the human occupants inside. And also, the poor moose is dead. There was a child in the...

Gray wolves are native to California but were driven extinction in the state by the mid-1920's.

The team also wanted to establish if cats expect an object to fall out or not, once the container is turned over. Thirty domestic cats were videotaped while an experimenter shook a container.

    Jewish tradition is clear that it is a sin to support a candidate of racial resentment, nationalism, and demagoguery who wishes to oppress the foreigner and who makes generalizations about disfavored groups (see Exodus 22:21-22 or 23:9, Deuteronomy 23:7 or 24:17 or 27:19, Jeremiah 7:6 or 22:3, Psalms 94:6, Zechariah 7:10, Malachi 3:5 and elsewhere).
