    New York State authorities recently found that a 32-year-old woman was raising her young son in a home filled with dead dogs. There were reports from people saying they could smell the rotting animals from 20-30 yards away. Officials who examined the home reported that her home “did not appear to be suitable for living — let alone a child.” Worst of all, the woman had a long history of harming animals but still was able to acquire and kill more. According to court documents, the mother’s home was in such a disgusting state that her 8-year-old son “smelled of death” when his father picked him up. Dead dogs were found both inside and outside of the home, and the woman was even accused of driving around with dead dogs in her car at one point. Source: FOX59 News/Youtube Animal abuse is more prevalent than many may think. According to PetPedia, every 60 seconds, an animal suffers from abuse, with more than 65 percent being dogs.

    How bad are public restrooms? Are public toilet seats as germ-filled as we’ve been led to believe? Source: Science Insider/Youtube Erica Donner, a professor of environmental science at the University of South Australia, spoke to The New York Times about the health risks associated with public bathrooms. Dr. Donner is the co-author of a recent review of studies on infectious disease transmission in public restrooms. Some disease-causing viruses and bacteria can be traced back to public restrooms like norovirus in the workplace, airplane and cruise ship bathrooms, salmonella in dorm toilets, and hepatitis A in elementary bathrooms. Research has also found the presence of pathogenic microbes on toilets and other surfaces in these public restrooms. These pathogens can get into the bathroom surfaces via the toilet bowl. This is because feces and urine can contain many bacteria and viruses. Flushing a toilet without a lid can disperse tiny microbes five feet into the air and remain suspended for an hour or more before landing on the ground. It’s important to note that simply sitting on a contaminated toilet...

    PARENTS have banned their kids from playing outside their £700,000 new build homes because it is a rubbish-filled scrap.

    In a speech in Buffalo on Tuesday, just days after a shooting at a supermarket there, President Joe Biden warned that American democracy is “in its greatest danger of my lifetime.” Payton Gendron allegedly killed 10 people and wounded three others at Tops Friendly Markets on Saturday. Police said that the shooting was a racially-motivated hate crime. “Look, the American experiment in democracy is in a danger like it hasn’t been in my lifetime. It’s in danger this hour,” said Biden. “Hate and fear are being given too much oxygen by those who pretend to love America but who don’t understand America. To confront the ideology of hate requires caring about all people. Not making distinctions.” Biden, a Catholic, noted that “in the Scripture, we’re seen that we’re all part of the divine. Love thy neighbor as thy self.” “That’s the America I know, that Jill knows,” he said, referring to his wife, First Lady Jill Biden. “Look, we are the most multiracial, most dynamic nation in the history of the world. Now is the time for the people of all...
    Waiting at arrivals at Luton Airport for the 1.45pm flight from Warsaw this week, I found myself shaking with fear. What had I committed myself to?  On board were a group of frightened and damaged people, fleeing from the terrible dangers of Russia’s cruel war in Ukraine.  And two of them would be coming home with me.  I had signed up for the Homes For Ukraine scheme earlier this year, fuelled by compassion for the women and children struggling to reach the country’s Western border, longing to find peace and safety away from the bombs and brutality.  At the time, I wrote in my column about my decision to offer my tiny cottage up as a refuge, reckoning there must be an inherited need to help lodged in my DNA. After all, my family had taken in a refugee many years ago, too — an evacuee from London’s Blitz during World War II.  That young teenage girl stayed with my family for four years, and kept in touch long after. I prayed my experience would be as positive.  Daily Mail...
    A MUM has been left feeling like “a beggar” after being forced to live in a council flat destroyed by black mould and water damage.  Abiodun Adebayo, 51, says the severe mould issue has left her children sleeping on sofas for months at their flat in Hackney Downs, North London.  6Abiodun Adebayo fears for her and her families healthCredit: SWNS 6The council property is riddled with mould and leaksCredit: SWNS The mum-of four  has been battling with Hackney Council to move her from the first-floor flat riddled with problems - including peeling paint, plaster and electrical damage.  Ms Adebayo moved into the property in July 2018, and is worried that her children's health could decline if they are forced to stay in the riddled home.  She told LondonWorld:“I don’t want my kids to see me crying.

    The Houston SPCA said its animal cruelty investigators rescued more than 80 animals from two different homes in the Galveston County area, including two pythons, a dwarf caiman, and 10 dogs. Shockingly, many of the animals were discovered in the second story of a home filled with garbage, debris, and animal remains. Source: KHOU 11/Youtube The first rescue happened in Hitchcock. In total, the animals rescued included: two horses and a mini, ten dogs, nine puppies, four guinea pigs, one rabbit, two pythons, including a Burmese and a Ball, one dwarf caiman, and one calf. Later that day, deputies executed a warrant at another property nearby La Marque. The SPCA reported that 52 cats were removed from the home that was filled with urine and feces. These animals were living in horribly sad conditions and were not receiving adequate care or nutrition. All 83 animals are now in the care of Houston SPCA where they will receive individualized treatment by veterinary staff. Some of the cats are even being treated for upper respiratory infections and urine...

    My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell said he plans to parachute in free pillows to Canadians protesting COVID-19 mandates after a shipment of 10,000 pillows were blocked at the border earlier this week.  Lindell, a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, confirmed that a truck loaded with My Pillows had been denied entry into Canada at the Michigan border on Tuesday, so he intends to drop his products to Freedom Convoy protesters from a helicopter, the Daily Beast reported.  'We need to get the My Pillows to the people,' Lindell said, explaining that the pillows will be equipped with 'little parachutes' to ensure their safe delivery.  Lindell did not specify when or where the delivery would take place, saying: 'I can not give the location out, and it is no joke!

    Joe Rogan has promoted dangerous misinformation on his popular Spotify podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” With over 11 million listeners, he has an enormous amount of influence, which is why it is so important that he is sharing accurate, scientific information with the world. While he has the chance to promote the safety, efficacy, and importance of COVID-19 vaccines, he is under scrutiny for promoting misinformation and rumors to his audience. He’s interviewed COVID-deniers and anti-vaxxers on his podcast, allowing them the chance to spread fear and falsehoods. During a more recent episode, Rogan featured a discredited doctor who had previously been banned from Twitter for spreading misinformation about COVID-19. Science has proven that vaccines are vitally important in the fight against COVID-19. In a recent study, vaccines were estimated to have prevented “1.1 million hospitalizations and halted 14 million infections, showing that more than 338 million doses had a powerful effect.” On his podcast, Rogan also promoted taking ivermectin to treat Covid-19 symptoms, despite the fact that there is not enough evidence to support its effectiveness for...
    Most of us have taken antibiotics in our lifetime, treatment for a common ailment, generally prescribed by a doctor without a second thought. While these crucial medications are oftentimes essential for healing, recent studies have also found that certain antibiotics have unforeseen side effects that can be detrimental to overall health. What are antibiotics anyways? Technically, antibiotic is a term that refers to any “substance that inhibits the growth and replication of a bacterium or kills it outright.” These chemical agents are antimicrobials, referring to “anything that inhibits or kills microbial cells,” which are used to destroy and eradicate bacterial infections. Under the antibiotic umbrella term, there are two kinds: specialized —  which are used to kill specific strains of bacteria — and broad spectrum — which are used as a force of eradication, attacking a “wide range of bacteria, including ones that are beneficial to us,” such as our microbiome. Studies have shown that antibiotics, while effective at staving off infections, also may have deadly side-effects including wreaking havoc on the delicate ecosystem of the microbiome, damaging the...

    Britney Spears unleashed another furious expletive-laden Instagram post on Friday that called out her father Jamie Spears and her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears.

    Former Bond girl Britt Ekland — the perkiest of 78-year-olds — has quite a list of tips for how to age gracefully. Do NOT go grey she insists (‘if you let your hair go grey, your brain will go grey, which is boring’). Wise words, indeed. Do not let a man into your home, unless it’s as a gardener and you are paying him (it’s a straightforward transaction then, she explains, entirely seriously). Her top tip, however, is to ‘never, ever, ever, mess with your face’. She offers her own up as evidence of what can go terribly wrong. We are talking fillers here and Britt has an awful lot to say about those. She was repeating her ‘just say no’ mantra in a magazine this week and will keep on saying it. ‘Biggest mistake of my life, and I’ve spent 20 years paying for it,’ she says. ‘I’ve had thousands of injections ever since, trying to dissolve them, and there is still some in there. It ruined my career as well as my life physically. I would say to...

Joanne Hines, 35, from Manchester, was left with a seeping, pus-filled wound after a £3,000 botched tummy tuck. 6Joanne Hines was left with a seeping, pus-filled wound after a £3,000 botched tummy tuckCredit: HotSpot Media Now, the stay-at-home mum is left with a five-inch scar and is speaking out to urge women to be aware of the dangers of plastic surgery. Joanne said: “I wish I had never had the tummy tuck. At first, the cheap surgery seemed like a good deal. Instead, I paid a very high price. "Please research extensively before thinking about surgery. I might not have been left with this massive scar had I not been so hasty.” After giving birth to her second child, Elouisa-Rose, now two, Joanne despised the saggy stomach she gained as a result. 6The mum-of-two was left in agony following the surgery and unable to walkCredit: HotSpot Media 6The mum-of-two is now speaking out about...
    Magnesium is one of those spectacularly essential minerals whose deficiency seems to be linked to many ailments. Healthy levels of magnesium are linked to better athletic performance, lower levels of depression, decreased risk of type 2 diabetes, better blood pressure, reduced inflammation markers, and has been shown to lower the risk of migraine occurrence. Magnesium has also been shown to have incredibly powerful positive effects for premenstrual syndrome symptoms. With that said, many of us aren’t getting enough. This is partly due to the traditional American diet, but it’s also due to the fact that “magnesium is one of the major minerals — which means that ‘higher amounts are needed compared to [other] trace minerals’” and, being a major mineral, magnesium “works in tandem with the 300 plus enzymes that ‘help to regulate many bodily functions, including the production of energy, body protein and muscle contractions,’ healthy bones, and healthy heart function.” How much magnesium is enough? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has outlined recommended dietary allowances (RDA) — “average daily level of intake sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all...
    For those who wear shoes and wear socks with those shoes, there is the inevitable problem of eventually acquiring old socks. Old socks can come in many forms. They can be the singular element remaining from a once happy couple, the hopeless, hapless survivor of the lost sock. They can be the piece of the pair that hasn’t yet developed a hole, or for that matter, the one that has developed the hole. They can be a team that’s simply seen better days. They can be ill-advised gifts that were never going to meld with your fashion sense. For some of us, old socks linger in the sock drawer for years. Why, we will even pack these things and keep them with us when we move. For others, those with an obsessive impulse sent into a frenzy with sock shenanigans, a mismatched sock instantly gets tossed away. Most likely, the majority of us fall somewhere in that seemingly healthier middle ground. Whatever the case is, the good news is old socks can be used to make great new things. Toys...
    GOSPEL star Kirk Franklin has apologized to fans after his son Kerrion Franklin shared an expletive-filled call between the two.  The 51-year-old admitted he lost his temper during the exchange where he allegedly mocked his son for being poor and threatened to put his foot in his “skinny motherf***ing a**.” 5Kirk apologized to his fans for the expletive-laden call with his sonCredit: Getty Images - Getty Sixteen-time Grammy Award winner Kirk took to Twitter on Saturday to apologize to his followers for swearing in a call with Kerrion, 32, who shared it on his Instagram account.

    MOTHERHOOD has revealed many things to me about myself. I never knew I could eat, text and type with my left hand when my right is trapped under a baby. I had no idea it was possible to be so woozy with tiredness that I would genuinely consider falling asleep in the shower. But the biggest shock has been finding myself in a whole new category of person. 2I feel invisible, and worse, unfanciableCredit: Kate Wills One who pushes a pram down the street, who builders don’t wolf-whistle at and young people ignore. I feel invisible, and worse, unfanciable. I am a mother. But it’s not just my identity that’s shifted, my relationship has, too. Before I had Blake, I was convinced that my partner Guy and I would share every aspect of parenting equally and not revert to gender stereotypes. But the fact is, if you’re breastfeeding, it’s just not possible. So instead, we divide and try to conquer, which has left Guy doing all the housework and me becoming an open-all-hours milk bar. This has its upsides...
    Janet Jackson recently took to Instagram to share a smoking hot post with her 5 million fans. The throwback image was shared on her page on September 11 and captured her with Missy Elliott. The image captured the two ladies posed against a bright red background. Janet tagged “FBF” in the geotag space to commemorate the Flashback Friday post. In the caption of the upload, the singer raved over Elliott and said that she was her “sis for life.” The two appeared to be having a good time and both wore smiles on their faces. Jackson posed with chest faced toward the camera and directed her attention to the side. Elliott turned her shoulders at an angle, brushing one against Jackson and pointing to her pal. Jackon opted for a sexy outfit that showed off her bombshell curves. She sported two layers, one of which included a plain white top with a scooping neckline. The garment was worn low on her chest and allowed her to show off her ample bust. On top, she rocked a jean jacket with a...

    Tracy Clark-Flory2 minutes ago•Filed to:pooppoopcaterpillarsThe Very Hungry CaterpillarSaveShe’s beautiful, and she poops a lot.Photo: Matt Knoth/Shutterstock (Shutterstock) Currently, I type these words to the sounds of tiny little caterpillar poops dropping to the floor of the butterfly enclosure sitting on my desk. Plink, plink, plink. These swollen, wriggling Anise swallowtail caterpillars, striped with yellow, green, and black, are housing dill leaves and pooping nearly just as fast. Every few seconds, there comes another round ball of poop out of these bugs. Some poops are the size of a poppy seed, some like a small berry. Every time I glance over at the netted caterpillar coop, there is more feces and less floor. The wall of the enclosure is now stained with caterpillar vomit (or is it diarrhea?) from what’s known as the pre-chrysalis “purge.” Just now, I witnessed a caterpillar butthole expand remarkably until out rolled a bug-sized bowling ball of poop. Plink. We recently brought home these five caterpillars after my toddler and I came across them in a local park munching away on a dill plant that was...
