Mom Abandons Her Baby, Now Watch What The Cameraman Does. UNBELIEVABLE! It all started one sunny spring morning, when a YouTube user named Darius watched two baby whitetail deer being born in his backyard. He noticed of the babies had an injured leg and struggled to keep up with Mom. Sadly, the baby’s mother and sibling abandoned him right there on Darius’ property. Knowing the baby would surely die on her own, the homeowner — and passionate animal lover — decided to take in the fragile fawn and nurse her back to health. “I do not support keeping wild animals as a pets, but this was special situation,” Darius said.
EWAO Continued Research Supports The ‘Water Has Memory’ Theory These amazing discoveries about the properties of water could revolutionize our world! By MindBodySoulSpirit Filmmaker and mystic ecologist David Sereda discussed some of the amazing properties of water– it may actually have memory and consciousness, he said. Human beings are mostly made up of water and he suggested that restructured water could have healing properties on their bodies. An example that Serada gives is how restructured water can transform polluted water into clean, fresh, and palatable drinking water!
Researchers come up with machines that harness power of evaporating water Researchers have come up with two new units that are directly powered by evaporation. The units have been developed by scientists from Columbia University. They created a floating, piston-driven engine that produced electrical energy to power a flashing mild and a rotary engine, which propels a small automotive. According to Ozgur Sahin, an affiliate professor of organic sciences and physics on the Columbia University and the lead writer of the research, water has a fixed conversion and it is required to use power from evaporation; it is very highly effective, but it has not been harnessed until now.
In The 1950s, Wives Were Expected To Do THIS For Their Husbands. This Is Crazy?!? It’s so fascinating to learn about how people used to live — especially when we discover that not much has really changed. However, sometimes you come across some old traditions that you simply can’t believe people ever followed — like these odd dating rituals throughout history. But what women in the 1950s were expected to do for their husbands? Well, those traditions have certainly flown right out the window! In May of 1955, Housekeeping Monthly published an article entitled, “The Good Wife’s Guide,” detailing all the ways that a wife should act and how best she can be a partner to her husband and a mother to her children.
Beth Moon Photographs The World’s Oldest Trees Illuminated By Starlight Ancient trees affected by cosmic rays are the subject of The “Diamond Nights” project by San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon. Moon has spent the last 14 years photographing the world’s oldest trees in daylight, but this series captures them at night. Her photos feature primarily baobab and quiver trees in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. Bladeless bird friendly turbine Does a wind turbine have to have one of those pinwheel-looking blades that spins around to be called a turbine? It depends what definition you go by. Meet the Vortex Bladeless, a wind ‘turbine’ without blades, developed by a group of inventors at a Spanish tech startup. This new wind energy solution looks more like a giant golf tee then a wind turbine. Its inventors — David Suriol, David Yáñez and Raul Martín — describe it as “[a] more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly way to produce energy.” It has no moving parts, so how does it work?

Guy Hides Camera In Bucket Of Water To See Who Comes To Drink, And Result Doesn’t Disappoint A video showing desert critters secretly filmed approaching a water bucket to quench their thirst is going viral. We see different creatures, from bees, to chickens, to a donkey and a rabbit. The video was uploaded by John Wells from The Field Lab, a Southwest Texas alternative energy and sustainable living field laboratory. Show Full Text “I was pleasantly surprised during the edit to see that George [the rabbit] made an appearance.
Yes, Organic Farming Will Kill Us All – But Wait I told a story a little while ago and received an interesting comment; here’s most of it: Local food, organic food, “real” food produces less per unit of land farmed without a demonstrable improvement in nourishment. Do you really want to have to expand the amount of land in cultivation to feed the earth? Wholesale going “local” means having more limited diets. As long as this is limited to zealots and those who want to be accepted by their organic friends, and for whom the amount of their income spent on food is negligible, that’s great.
The last surviving sea silk seamstress Each spring, under the cover of darkness and guarded by members of the Italian Coast Guard, 62-year-old Chiara Vigo slips on a white tunic, recites a prayer and plunges headfirst into the crystalline sea off the tiny Sardinian island of Sant’Antioco. Using the moonlight to guide her, Vigo descends up to 15m below the surface to reach a series of secluded underwater coves and grassy lagoons that the women in her family have kept secret for the past 24 generations. She then uses a tiny scalpel to carefully trim the razor-thin fibres growing from the tips of a highly endangered Mediterranean clam known as the noble pen shell, or pinna nobilis. It takes about 100 dives to harvest 30g of usable strands, which form when the mollusc’s secreted saliva comes in contact with salt water and solidifies into keratin.
Child Grows up With 2 Gorillas. 12 Years Later, They Reunite In The Wild. I’m Speechless. For 15 years, conservationist Damian Aspinall has been working to reintroduce captive gorillas to the wild. In 2003, Damian released Djalta and Bimms — two western lowland gorillas he raised from when they were babies — into the forests of West Africa. Over the years, Damian revisited the pair of gorillas, but his daughter Tansy hadn’t seen them in 12 years. So, in 2014, Damian brought Tansy into the wild to try and find Djalta and Bimms. He wasn’t sure if they would remember Tansy, the once little girl who was raised right alongside her gorilla friends. “I was considering whether it was safe for Tansy to come on land and see Djalta and Bimms,” Damian says in the following video.
Frozen Remains of Extinct Lion Found in Russia The frozen remains of a cave lion cub likely dating back to the last Ice Age were recently unveiled in Russia. Local outlets reported that the remains of the roughly one-year-old cub were found in Russia's far northeastern Yukatia region this past September by a local resident. It's not the first time the frozen Siberian region has yielded prehistoric finds. The area's permafrost, or permanently frozen ground, is capable of preserving animals like cave lions and woolly mammoths, even tens of thousands of years after their species went extinct. The new cub comes just two years after two similarly frozen and intact lion cubs, named Uyan and Dina, were found. Dated to around 12,000 years old, Uyan and Dina were the first prehistoric cave lions found in such a well-preserved state.
Escaped Pet Birds Are Teaching Wild Birds to Speak English : TreeHugger Photo: enlewof / cc Across parts of Australia, reports have been pouring in of strange voices chattering high in the treetops -- mysterious, non-sensical conversations in English. But while this phenomenon is certainly quite odd, its explanation isn't paranormal. It turns out that escaped pet birds, namely parrots and cockatoos, have begun teaching their wild bird counterparts a bit of the language they picked up from their time in captivity -- and, according to witnesses, that includes more than a few expletives.Jaynia Sladek, an ornithologist from the Australian Museum, says that some birds are just natural mimickers, able to acquire new sounds based on things they hear around them. For birds kept as pets, these sounds tend to mirror human language -- but that influence doesn't cease even after said birds escape or are released back into the wild.
See the Ingenious Ways People Are Making Vegan Leather Gloves, handbags, wallets, watches, you name it: There’s a laundry list of accessories that have traditionally been made from leather—yes, the unfortunate kind that was originally the skin of an animal. And as PETA’s recent dog-leather investigation demonstrates, this could mean a lifetime of misery for animals just like the ones we share our homes with, not to mention indicating trouble for the environment, considering the huge amounts of feed, pastureland, water, and fossil fuels required to turn animal skins into accessories. Not to fret, friends—it’s officially 2015, and the “leather” industry is being redefined with sustainable vegan materials that will replace cow and dog skin permanently. Vegan Leather 1: Mushrooms The extraordinary mushroom can be used for so many things, and now, it’s been made to mimic the texture of leather made from animals.
