Campaigners Say Koalas Are Already Functionally Extinct. Here’s What That Means

Koalas are adorable, chlamydia-riddled fluffballs – and functionally extinct, say campaigners.  The sad news comes courtesy of the Australian Koala Foundation, who say that there are now fewer than 80,000 koalas in the wild. The figure is significantly lower than previous estimates and is resulting in excessive inbreeding that experts say will harm the viability of any future generations. The warning comes just weeks after a UN report revealed close to a million species of plants and animals are at risk of extinction within the coming decades unless we see “transformative change”. Functional extinction stands in stark contrast to numerical extinction. The latter being when a species has declined to just a handful of individuals so that there is no chance of future breeding. Just think of Lonesome …

People Are Surprised At How Chill Arnold Schwarzenegger Is After Getting Drop Kicked By A Man In South Africa

What else would you expect from The Terminator? After an unprovoked attack in South Africa recently, when a crazed ‘fan’ came from nowhere with a flying kick to his back, Arnold Schwarzenegger has reacted in typical fashion by brushing it off as merely a ‘jostle from the crowd.” Schwarzenegger was in Johannesburg for the annual “ Arnold was casually walking around the venue in Johannesburg, filming participants in action on his phone, when an assailant ran up behind him and hit him with a flying two-legged kick, known in wrestling parlance as a ‘dropkick.’ “I don’t think I’ve seen anyone assault Arnold like this,” Daniel explained. “But he was hit with an egg when he was running for Governor and responded by saying …

After breach, Stack Overflow says some user data exposed

Romney disagrees with GOP congressman’s conclusion on Trump’s ‘impeachable conduct’

Washington (CNN)Sen. Mitt Romney said Sunday that he disagrees with Rep. Justin Amash on the Michigan Republican’s recent comments that President Donald Trump’s conduct has met the “threshold for impeachment.” “I just don’t think that there is the full element that you need to prove an obstruction of justice case,” Romney said. “I don’t think impeachment is the right way to go.” On Saturday, Amash, a frequent Trump critic, said his thorough review of the Mueller report led him to conclude the President engaged in “impeachable conduct.” He was the first Republican to express support for impeachment. In a series of tweets, Amash also argued Attorney General Bill Barr initially misrepresented Mueller’s findings, echoing a top complaint from congressional Democrats. …

Human atrocity doesn’t start with violence. It starts with prejudice and propaganda.

Not very many things scare me, but extremism in every form does. We hear a lot about the extremism of radicalized Islamic groups, and yes, such groups are worrisome. But labeling an entire religious group with more than a billion followers as dangerous because of the heinous actions of its most radical minority element is also extremism and needs to be called out as such. We hear about child traffickers trying to smuggle children across the border, and yes, those people are worrisome. But making sweeping generalizations about migrants from south of the border and putting asylum seekers into the same category as human traffickers is also extremism and needs to be called out as such. When we don’t recognize …

This man fed a family of crows for years then they started bringing him presents.

Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay This story really is incredible; it shows the amazing bond that humans can have with animals of all kinds. Stuart Dahlquist has long been a bird enthusiast, but even he was shocked by the actions of a family of crows that he’s been feeding for several years. This is what Dahlquist posted on Twitter. We’ve been feeding a small family of four crows (mated pair and their two year old kids) for several years. Last week two days in a row they left these gifts, pull tabs threaded onto pine twigs.

Want to truly make every day Mother’s Day? Give her a clean house and some time alone.

Instead of thinking about what to give a mom in your life, think about what you could take away. Pssst. I’ve got a Mother’s Day secret. Moms don’t really need a brunch or flowers, as lovely as those things are. What most moms I know really want are the things she rarely gets—a clean house, and time that belongs to her and her alone. Don’t get me wrong. Moms enjoy spending quality time with their kids. But I know few moms who would say they don’t get enough time with their children. Our kid cups are full to overflowing most days. It’s quality time with ourselves that we crave, but rarely get. This is why we lock ourselves in the …
