horse slaughter?

I am an avid animal lover ! I am upset with the new slaughter policy ! The market & care of horses have crashed ! An animal is to be given a place in this world !What do you expect todo w these large animals that are not getting proper medical att.&care ? Unlike the dogs &cats LOL! That get it (GASSED)everyday!These animals deserve to have a descent humanitaryin death too!      (OPEN BACK UP THE SLAUGHTER HOUSES!)These are animals that are in noway pets they will kill ,hurt & destroy a human or are so old or foundered ill ,near death,need death,have broken bones ,blind,wild animals that are not givin the soul of a pet ,farm animals!I can see the lady & her boy that started all this again problem !With blood running out of the semi, as it tried to remove the crippled  hurt animals from the city ,to take them to there next destination !They have laws in affect that could be used or knowlegde is power due something !(out of sight out of mind )They live 25 30 years & need are help to do that they have few  homes leftin the farm community(4 wheelers 21st century tech.) ! They are called belly robbers ,eat twice as much as a cow, ruine pastures ,eat to much ,are dangerous,The average horse would eat 60 lbs of feed a day ! Who Or What org. has this amount to care for these animals when the goverment is up-in -arms already on the wild horses & burros already !  Why the goverment&P.E.T.A don't have the care needed for these animals before they start there so called good? They are being left in unimaginable ways & need a better process of elimination then is being givin! So , bring back the slaughter theses animals deserve a better end!Not to be left in road ditches ( no IDs so people there will be more unneeded deaths)like deer they kill!How many deaths or how much $$$ for the state (pay for unidentified wild animals roaming the ditches&roads causing lawsuits ect....)to care for these wild animals will it take for them to open up the slaughter?

How to make a black hole

Here's the science of black holes, from supermassive monsters to ones the size of ping-pong balls.

  • There's more than one way to make a black hole, says NASA's Michelle Thaller. They're not always formed from dead stars. For example, there are teeny tiny black holes all around us, the result of high-energy cosmic rays slamming into our atmosphere with enough force to cram matter together so densely that no light can escape.
  • CERN is trying to create artificial black holes right now, but don't worry, it's not dangerous. Scientists there are attempting to smash two particles together with such intensity that it creates a black hole that would live for just a millionth of a second.
  • Thaller uses a brilliant analogy involving a rubber sheet, a marble, and an elephant to explain why different black holes have varying densities. Watch and learn!
  • Bonus fact: If the Earth became a black hole, it would be crushed to the size of a ping-pong ball.

Project 100,000: The Vietnam War's cruel and deadly experiment

Military recruits are supposed to be assessed to see whether they're fit for service. What happens when they're not?

  • During the Vietnam War, Robert McNamara began a program called Project 100,000.
  • The program brought over 300,000 men to Vietnam who failed to meet minimum criteria for military service, both physically and mentally.
  • Project 100,000 recruits were killed in disproportionate numbers and fared worse after their military service than their civilian peers, making the program one of the biggest—and possibly cruelest—mistakes of the Vietnam War.

China’s artificial sun reaches fusion temperature: 100 million degrees

In a breakthrough for nuclear fusion research, scientists at China's Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) reactor have produced temperatures necessary for nuclear fusion on Earth.

Surprising Science
  • The EAST reactor was able to heat hydrogen to temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees Celsius.
  • Nuclear fusion could someday provide the planet with a virtually limitless supply of clean energy.
  • Still, scientists have many other obstacles to pass before fusion technology becomes a viable energy source.
