Every day a sweet dog peeks out from under a gate, waiting for his friend

Added: 25.02.2017 6:12 | 0 views | 0 comments


May we all find a  secret dog bud that will wait for your pets every day.  Elisa Lee a 17-year-old senior at Lakewood High School in California has developed somewhat of a routine with her newfound friend Ralph, a golden retriever that really enjoys some friendly pets.  SEE ALSO: Meet the dog who's basically a saint This is Ralph he is a dog that lives near school and waits for me everyday after school to say hi to him before I have to leave pic.twitter.com/9gJyYLk6IB — elisa (@babygirIe) February 22, 2017 "One day my friend was giving me a ride home and I saw this dog near the gate," Elisa explained in an email. "At I was afraid that he would bite me since most dogs would bark at you and seem aggressive if you came near their house. Days have passed and he was still waiting there, so one of my friends encouraged me to try to pet him." "The first time I had pet him he was so excited and started licking my hand and pawing at it, Elisa said. "Ever since then I would go after school towards the spot where he lives in to pet him and usually always find him there waiting for me." But if Ralph isn't at the gate waiting for Elisa, he's usually not too far away, unless it's raining outside.  "Sometimes he's not there, probably chewing on a toy or laying in the grass, said Elisa. "But if I call his name he is sure to come to the little spot one the right side of the gate where he can see me better." Recently, Elisa says that she had a four day weekend and wasn't able to stop by Ralph's place because she didn't have school. When she returned, Ralph was a little upset the two weren't able to hang out for a while. @katiewright we had a 4 day weekend and he got mad at me since I didn't say hi for a while pic.twitter.com/Y6GBYPfWFq — elisa (@babygirIe) February 22, 2017 Prepare yourselves: Ralph also gets sad when Elisa has to leave.  "A lot of the time he looks so sad when I leave and tell him 'bye,' Elisa explained, but she says she always reassures Ralph that she'll be back to hang out.  One day, Elisa spotted an older man walking a golden retriever, but she wasn't quite sure if it was Ralph.  "I thought to myself in my head kiddingly 'oh what if that's the dog I pet everyday.' And to my surprise, I noticed his cute nose that is pink and has a brownish outlining and realized it was him," Elisa explained. The owner confirmed Elisa's assumption that the dog was Ralph, and told her his name and informed her that Ralph is a little over a year old.  Elisa says that she wanted other to appreciate how awesome Ralph is, so she posted a tweet with a few photos, explaining that she visits him every day. The tweet blew up, and has since been retweeted over 12,000 times, gaining tons of Ralph fans on the internet. This also prompted a bunch of people to joking tweet back at Elisa with the hashtag #FreeRalph. Elisa says that she is a little concerned about what happens when she graduates this year, because she won't be near where Ralph lives every day. "I am quite sad that I got to only meet him this school year," Elisa said. "I'm worried about what will happen when I graduate but I'm sure his owner loves him so he should be just fine. I hope Ralph can make new friends around our school and be happy!" BONUS: Popular Twitter account that rates dogs now has a cute mobile game

Video of 'chubby' tigers taking down a drone may be way darker than you think

Added: 25.02.2017 4:13 | 0 views | 0 comments


A video of "chubby" Siberian tigers taking down a drone, complete with a silly soundtrack — like so much viral content — is more than what it seems.  While the video's been shared far and wide, but the origins of the footage have been a cause for concern for a while now.  SEE ALSO: Watch a bunch of chubby tigers take down a drone and try to eat it As science journalist John R. Platt tweeted, the footage is "obviously a tiger farm."  Reminder: China has an estimated *7* wild tigers left. Many this video = obviously a tiger farm. They'll be turned into bone & wine https://t.co/7hxmkSDei2 — John R Platt (@johnrplatt) February 23, 2017 While the name of the park isn't mentioned in the description of the videos (as to avoid searching of the park's record according to Platt,) the location is.  Heilongjiang Province in China is the home of Harbin Siberian Tiger Park. It's one of the two biggest tiger-breeding facilities in the country, according to a 2013 report on the country's clandestine tiger trade by the Environmental Investigation Agency. The park is advertised as a tourist attraction, where visitors can offer meat and even live animals, to the tigers. As per a report by McClatchy, the number of visitors doesn't cover the cost of feeding or breeding hundreds of tigers each year. The real money comes from the sale of tiger pelts, tiger bone wine, and other products that have been banned in China. McClatchy visited Harbin Siberian Tiger Park, and reported bottles of tiger bone wine on display — albeit not advertised as tiger bone wine, but some had images of tigers on the packaging. Some of these "bone strengthening wines" advertise the use of tiger bone in its manufacture to distinguish itself from other wines in its category, according to the Environmental Investigation Agency's report. The same park was under scrutiny after conservation groups were outraged at images of obese tigers, thought to be seriously ill. Last word on tiger-drone video: Chinese media often share cute tiger videos. They're all propaganda to hide the reality of tiger farms. — John R Platt (@johnrplatt) February 24, 2017 Since 1993, there has been a ban on the trade of tiger bones, but the state has encouraged the growth of tiger farms. In 2007, India and the UK called on China to ban tiger farms due to concerns over the impact it had on the wild population.  [h/t Motherboard] BONUS: This organization is providing kids with 3D-printed prosthetics — free of charge

Tesla now offers insurance and maintenance for life

Added: 25.02.2017 4:13 | 0 views | 0 comments


Self-driving cars are going to ruin everything--in a good way. If all goes as planned, they'll dramatically reduce auto accidents and highway fatalities; boost fuel efficiency; minimize traffic jams; and maybe even cut the number of vehicles we own. Autonomous vehicles are likely to wreak havoc on the insurance industry, too. For insurance agents who might not be worried about that doomsday scenario just yet, they should take a look at Tesla. That's because Tesla has slowly begun offering lifetime insurance policies to some buyers--and that package covers vehicle maintenance, too. The automaker hasn't widely discussed the feature, but it became public knowledge during an earnings call earlier this week. According to Tesla's President of Global Sales and Service, Jonathan McNeill, the insurance and maintenance package has been quietly rolling out to shoppers in Asian markets, where it's proven very popular. In fact, McNeill says that the majority of Tesla buyers in Asia have opted to shell out for the package. Tesla hasn't yet confirmed the price of the package, nor has it hinted when it might be available to shoppers in other markets. However, the offering clearly stems in large part from the company's confidence in its semi-autonomous (and soon, fully autonomous) Autopilot software.  Would you be willing to pay upfront for a lifetime insurance and maintenance package? If so, how much? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
