They say dogs are a man’s best friend, but apparently, they are also our guardian angels. A Florida woman suffered a near-fatal fall survived the ordeal thanks to her two golden retrievers, Higgins and Dodger. The 76-year-old broke her shoulder and bruised her head when she fell in her kitchen. The woman lives by herself and has Parkinson’s disease, so she could not get up on her own and drifted in and out of consciousness for two days. As she lay there helplessly for two days, the dogs stayed with her, not having any access to water or food during [More]
If you were to ask a random stranger on the street their opinion on domestic violence, they would probably say it is disgusting. (Most would call that a no-brainer.) What would they say, though, if you asked them to describe typical domestic abuse? More than likely, they would say it’s when a man lashes out at a woman and physically attacks her… This video, filmed by Dare London, proves that most people have a lopsided opinion when it comes to violence. Two actors went through two different scenarios in a public setting, each focusing on a fight that escalates to [More]
Getting two cats to like each other can be a tough thing to do, especially when bringing a new kitten to a house that only had one cat before. Some cats take longer, and some don’t take long at all. Some cats may need to stay between a half-closed door or gate during feedings to get used to each other. You should be fine as long as you follow the steps in this adorable video below (but you never know, because, well, cats). (Source: Sho Ko) I rarely get emotional over cat videos, but this one had all the winning [More]
Helping those who can’t help themselves is an incredible calling. Annie Hart is well known dog lover and the executive director of The Bill Foundation. She makes it her life goal to rescue animals that suffer abuse or neglect and to find homes for the pitiful animals that are left to die on the streets. Her YouTube channel is full of heartwarming animal rescues, but none so touching as the incredible rescue she just pulled off in December of last year. The dog she found was in such bad shape, it was clear he had been on the streets a long [More]
So much for Student Projects, @NAHJ won't let me work on mine #unitynews #unity12 — Nadia Khan (@nadiasaleenkhan) August 1, 2012 The National Association of Hispanic Journalists ejected a young woman reporter working on her student project from what was supposedly an “open” board meeting at minority journalists’ 2012 UNITY convention in Las Vegas. The president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists refused to allow media coverage of its open board meeting Tuesday. Only one board member openly objected to the policy, which President Michele Salcedo said had been established years before. A UNITY News reporter who had been [More]

This is going off the rails. — Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) June 5, 2014 Believing in killing all those of a different faith and labeling them as "infidels" is just a symptom of poverty, says Toure. #WTF — Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) June 5, 2014 Homelessness and poverty cause terrorism? That sounds so very Touré! Well actually it doesn’t because he didn’t include racism, but let’s take a look at his remarks about the Bowe Bergdahl release nonetheless (partial transcript follows video): [More]

Chris Matthews immediately blamed the driver of the car in shootout on GOP… are you flippin' kidding me? — Jay Allen (@showtunz) October 3, 2013 Tonight on “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews went full cuckoo’s nest once again and proved that no dots are too distant to connect to the Republicans. Matthews tied the Capitol Hill car chase that ended after police shot the driver to Republican anti-Obamacare efforts: Chris Matthews, over footage of the DC car chase: "An iconic image of the shutdown driven by Republican hatred of the Affordable Care Act." — Gregory Korte (@gregorykorte) October 3, 2013 Video [More]
El Caminito del Rey or “The King’s Little Path” is often regarded as the most dangerous walkway in the world. This old walkway, now fallen into disrepair, is pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in the province of Málaga, Spain. The walkway was built between 1901 and 1905 to provide workers the means to cross between two hydroelectric power plants at Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo Falls. These days the walkway is closed to the public, but that hasn’t stop thrill seekers from walking the narrow mountain walkway. The walkway is 3 feet [More]
