Heavy earth-moving machinery was deployed to the site on Thursday and the officer told reporters that more mechanical diggers were expected to join in the search effort.

African lion deserves 'endangered species' protection

The US Fish and Wildlife Service proposed listing the African lion as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, as loss of habitat and prey are putting them in danger of extinction Loss of habitat and prey are putting African lions in danger of extinction, and the majestic creatures need protection in order to save their species, the US government said Monday. "Following a review of the best available scientific information, the US Fish and Wildlife Service today proposed listing the African lion as threatened under the Endangered Species Act," the FWS said in a statement. "The agency's analysis found that lions are in danger of extinction in the foreseeable future." Such protection would allow US authorities to toughen enforcement and monitoring of imports and international trade, the FWS said.


On Sleeping Dogs, Wei Shen, and sexually attractive male heroes

On Sleeping Dogs, Wei Shen, and sexually attractive male heroes One recent stream allowed me to confront a topic I've been wrestling with for almost as long as I've been playing games: the treatment of characters as objects of desire. To be clear — we aren't far into the game, and I can't speak to the rest of Sleeping Dogs as it represents its hero and supporting characters. For about an hour, myself, my streaming partner-in-crime and our chatroom of about 100 folks discussed such subjects as: Wei Shen's physique and the corresponding best fashion choices for him in-game, the representation of Asian men in video games and Kevin Wong's excellent piece on the topic, and the way in which attractiveness is gendered in media, especially in games.

Did Mammals Sleep Through Cosmic Impact That Ended Dinosaurs?

Did Mammals Sleep Through Cosmic Impact That Ended Dinosaurs? A shrewlike creature in Madagascar that can hibernate for at least nine months of the year without waking may help reveal how mammals survived the cataclysm that ended the age of dinosaurs, researchers suggest. Since the climate in which tenrecs have lived has changed little for millions of years, Lovegrove said equally little seems to have changed regarding how tenrecs respond to environmental factors such as climate, a phenomenon known as phylogenetic inertia.


Killer Whales Caught in Stunning Drone Footage (Video)

A tiny, flying drone has captured stunning video of a population of killer whales socializing, chasing prey and swimming with dolphins off the coast of Canada. The drone, called Mobly, is helping scientists understand how salmon stocks affect the health of killer whales, and the footage could even help fisheries manage their stocks to help the endangered whale populations thrive. The salmon-eating southern and northern resident killer whales living off the coast of Vancouver, B.C., are considered endangered and threatened, respectively. Scientists had long noticed that more of the whales died in years when Chinook salmon populations plummeted, raising the question of whether malnutrition was causing their deaths.

Kids, dogs touch same soft spots in the brain: study

By Janice Neumann NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Brain scans showing that human responses to our dogs are not unlike those evoked by our children suggest a deep evolutionary bond, according to a recent study. The findings are in line with dogs’ special place as mankind’s best friend, and may support the benefits of dog-assisted therapies, researchers say. “The overlap says a lot about how similar the relationships could be, but we’re only speculating,” said Lori Palley, who led the study with Luke Stoeckel at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. ...

What's new in the Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs?

What's new in the Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs? In developing the remastered version of Sleeping Dogs, United Front Games did its best to ensure that the final result lived up to the "Definitive Edition" moniker, according to senior producer Dan Sochan.

Supreme Court leaves California foie gras ban intact

Duck liver is displayed at French Restaurant Jean Ramet in Bordeaux By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a victory for animal rights activists, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed California to continue to ban foie gras, a delicacy produced from the enlarged livers of ducks and geese that have been force-fed corn.

In doing so, the high court left intact an August 2013 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the law. California enacted the law in 2004 but it did not go into effect until 2012. ...
