Bill Maher Urges Texas AM To End Cruel Experiments On Dogs

first_imgIn a new video for PETA, the host of HBO’s Real Time, Bill Maher, unleashes some real talk to Texas A&M University, denouncing its muscular dystrophy (MD) experiments on golden retrievers and other dogs.In the video, he calls on viewers to put pressure on the college until it stops funding the experiments by Joe Kornegay — a man Maher calls “dogs’ worst enemy.”“For 35 years, experimenter Joe Kornegay has been using public money — yours and mine — to … [make] dogs sick with a debilitating, incurable disease that ravages their bones and bodies,” Maher explains in the video, which goes on to reveal how dogs used in Kornegay’s experiments were fed a watery gruel because it was difficult for them to eat without choking. “It’s as if Oliver Twist wandered into the Island of Doctor Moreau.”The eyewitness footage of the labs shows thin dogs with disease-ravaged bodies struggling to walk, swallow, and even breathe because of their swollen tongues and weakened jaw muscles, with strings of saliva hanging from their mouths. Dogs without symptoms but who carried the gene for the disease were kept caged and used for breeding, and they restlessly paced and gnawed at the cage bars.“This shouldn’t be happening to dogs, but it is,” Maher concludes. “This cruel, irresponsible, and fruitless waste of money must be stopped and the resources put to better use — supporting studies that don’t abuse helpless, trusting dogs.”PETA notes that no applicable cure for humans with MD has been discovered in over 35 years of experimentation on dogs. Maher joins Miami Dolphins quarterback and TAMU alumnus Ryan Tannehill in urging the university to put a stop to these tests and adopt the dogs out to loving families.last_img read more

Rodgers tips Kilmarnock to emulate Leicesters heroics

first_imgLeicester City’s historic Premier League title-winning season can be an inspiration for Kilmarnock according to Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.Aberdeen clinched the league title in 1985 and that was the league was won by a team other than Celtic or Rangers, but Kilmarnock are one point ahead of Celtic and Rodgers believes they can emulate the Leicester City of 2015/2016 season.“They deserve all the credit that they get. It is not by accident. It has been a real consistent run now over the last year or so,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.“Steve has done a brilliant job in terms of how he organizes them, the way they want to play and consistently they have got very good results.“Okay they have played two more matches than us but they are still in a position where some people wouldn’t expect them to be.“But if you watch them clearly, closely over the last year or so Steve and the players have done a great job in term of how they have worked.Leicester City, Manchester UnitedMatch Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.“They are a very difficult team to beat so we know we have to be at our best to get a result we want.“They will feel why not. I think what Leicester have done to probably every team other than a so-called big club is they have made the impossible possible.“But like I say it is still very early. We have played 14 games. Get down to when there are 10 games to go and then we will see where we are at. But what they have shown is the level of consistency.“They are a very good side. They have got good players, some experienced players there and obviously, Steve and his staff have done a great job so I am sure they will be up there throughout the season.”last_img read more

Over Governors Objection State Votes to Purchase Leased Space for Team Orlando

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Florida Cabinet on Tuesday voted to purchase almost 10 acres of land in central Florida that hosts a number of DOD tenants primarily focused on simulation.The purchase would allow DOD to reduce its leasing expense for Team Orlando as part of a state-led effort to retain Orlando’s defense simulation cluster in the event of a new BRAC round. DOD pays about $5.4 million annually in rent for 200,000 square feet of commercial space in Orlando.“In this current budget environment, that’s a terrible place to be,” Thomas Baptiste, president of the National Center for Simulation, told News4Jax.Last year, Baptiste told the Central Florida Partnership that he fears DOD could end its leases in Orlando and move to other federal or military sites that have spare capacity.“I’m going to tell you today, there will be another round of BRAC. As the other services get smaller, there are empty federal buildings all over this nation that could house pieces and parts of Team Orlando, and undermine the fabric that drives this $5 billion industry,” Baptiste said at the time.The Florida Defense Support Task Force has made moving DOD tenants into government-rate leases a top priority. The purchase would add 9.58 acres to the Central Florida Research Park, which sits next to the University of Central Florida campus and Naval Support Activity Orlando.Gov. Rick Scott (R) voted against the purchase, based on his opposition to the $13.9 million purchase price and not the effort’s objective, according to the story.last_img read more

Breaking Ambati Rayudu announces retirement from cricket

first_imgAmbati RayuduIANSIndian batsman Ambati Rayudu announced his retirement from all formats of cricket after being overlooked for selection in the Indian World Cup squad for the third time. Rayudu had expressed his disappointment at being superseded by Vijay Shankar when the original Indian 15-man squad was picked. He vented his anger in a very public and sarcastic manner by tweeting that he would be watching the World Cup “with 3-D glasses’ after chief selector ascribed Shankar all-round abilities as the reason for choosing the latter over Ambati. MSK Prasad had called Shankar a 3-D cricketer, hence the taunt. When Shikhar Dhawan got injured, the selectors decided to pick Rishabh Pant as the replacement despite the Delhi wicketkeeper not having played too many ODIs and not having performed in them either. The straw that broke the camel’s back was the decision of selectors to replace the injured Vijay Shankar with Test opener Mayank Agarwal rather than Rayudu. Starting his international career in 2013, Rayudu ended up playing 55 ODI’s where he scored 1694 runs at an average of 47.05 with 10 half-centuries.last_img read more
