Mutts: What’s Not to Love?
We think all dogs are pretty awesome, and if you’re reading this then there’s a good chance you agree. Every dog, no matter what breed, has their own unique personality, and will likely be a great fit for someone out there. Some dog parents like purebreds because you can pick the exact dog you want. Their temperament and behavioral traits, and even their shedding may be more predictable. However, there is a growing trend to adopt or rescue a mutt from a shelter. For many pet families, not knowing exactly what you’re going to get is half the fun, but, it basically comes down to preference.

Australia zoo urges people to catch deadly spiders as antidote runs low

By Claudia Farhart SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian zookeeper on Tuesday urged people to catch and donate deadly funnel-web spiders, to help replenish stocks of antidote running low after a spate of spider bites. The Australian Reptile Park, the country's sole supplier of funnel-web venom to antidote producers since 1981, relies on the public to hand in spiders that are milked for the venom used to produce an antidote. The anti-venom program was now at risk after too few spiders were donated last year and a recent heatwave encouraged more spider activity and bites, the park's general manager, Tim Faulkner, said on Tuesday.

Rachel Carson doc tells the environmentalist's inspiring life story

Rachel Carson doc tells the environmentalist's inspiring life storyBefore Rachel Carson became the mother of the modern environmental movement, she was stuck in a job that paid the bills but left her restless. A new documentary revisits Carson's days as an information specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the 1930s and '40s, where at first she filed mundane reports about the agency's conservation work.  It was in that role that Carson learned about DDT — a potent pesticide that farmers sprayed indiscriminately over their crops. Carson exposed the chemical's widespread environmental damage in her groundbreaking 1962 book, Silent Spring.  SEE ALSO: Hawaii's bees are now protected under U.S. Endangered Species Act Her work inspired President John F. Kennedy to launch the first U.S. investigation into the public health risks of pesticides, which later prompted policymakers to create new safeguards for protecting the environment.  The PBS documentary Rachel Carson draws on the biologist's own writings, letters and recent scholarship to tell her inspiring life story. The film features the voice of actress Mary-Louise Parker as Carson, who died in 1964 after a long battle with breast cancer. Rachel Carson premieres as part of PBS' American Experience program on Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
