Women reading Donald Trump comments about women

The Republican group looking to block GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump from the nomination is going on-air with an ad showing women reading some of his sharpest knocks on other women.

“Bimbo,” reads one woman.

“Dog,” reads another.

“Fat pig,” reads a third woman, as the ad, “Real quotes from Donald Trump about women,” is introduced.

ABUSER TAPED HER MOUTH TO STOP HER FROM BARKING

… a sad story with an awesome ending …

Remember that dog whose mouth was taped shut?

Well you won’t believe what she looks like now.

I can’t understand how humans can abuse any animal.

All you have to do is look into their eyes and see that there’s a sentient being inside.

They feel, they suffer, they love, they play.

This is a sad story with a very happy ending.

Her tongue was swollen and oozing pus, because all of the blood flow to her mouth had been cut off.

She was rushed to Charleston Animal Society, a No Kill rescue centre in South Carolina, where she had several operations.

We didn’t think she’d make it through – but we were wrong.

New footage shows the Staffie mix happier than ever – playing ball, enjoying some Starbucks and just generally having a great time.

The video was filmed by BarkBox, which arranges fun days for deserving dogs.

She was even given a special ‘bone to the city’ – instead of a key to the city – by Keith Summey, the mayor of North Charleston.

Caitlyn also enjoyed being an honorary firehouse dog with one of her favourite humans and best friends – a local firefighter, Josh Allen.

~~Dog’s Best Day~~

Caitlyn

~~Published on Dec 16, 2015~~

Staffie-mix, Caitlyn, captured the hearts of millions worldwide last July 2015, when she was rescued by Charleston Animal Society (CAS) with devastating injuries after her muzzle was cruelly taped shut. Her amazing resilience and inspiring journey from victim to ambassador against animal cruelty led BarkPost to give her the ultimate holiday gift: her best day ever.

A huge thank you to Starbucks, Hyper Pet, Woof Gang Bakery, BarkShop, and, of course, Charleston Animal Society. We couldn’t have made this special day possible without you.

A Cat Gives A Dog A Very Comical Hypnotherapy Session

Chris Cohen is at it again.

The London-based comedian and presenter is most well known for his viral “Cat vs. Printer Translation” back in 2010, but has had many similar videos since then as well.

This time he has sights set on a Bengal cat and a Weimaraner pup. The original video was posted by YouTube user AustinAndN back in 2012, but only recently reached the hands of Cohen.

Cohen turned the leisurely massage session into one of hypnotherapy that will cause even the most solemn person to crack a smile.

(Make sure your speakers are on)

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’

Google Doodle …. Mary Anning’s 215th birthday!!


~~May 21, 2014~~ 

Google is celebrating the 215th anniversary of the birth of British palaeontologist Mary Anning with a special doodle.

Anning is best known for her work collecting fossils from the Jurassic period near her home in Lyme Regis Dorset.

Today’s colourful Google Doodle shows her uncovering a dinosaur’s fossilised remains.

Anning is recognized for contributing to fundamental changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life. Among her many discoveries was the first ever correctly identification skeleton of an ichthyosaur.

Despite being recognized globally for her work in the field, she was not – as a woman – eligible to join the Geological Society of London. In 2010 Anning was included by the Royal Society in a list of the ten British women who have most influenced the history of science.

Born in Lyme Regis on 21st May 1799. Her father, a cabinetmaker, died when she was just 11.

Anning died of cancer, aged 47, on 9th March 1847.

Cause of death
Breast cancer

St. Michael’s Church, Lyme Regis
Occupation Fossil collector · Palaeontologist
Religion Congregational; converted toAnglicanism
Parents Richard Anning (c. 1766–1810)
Mary Moore (c. 1764–1842) [1]
Relatives Joseph Anning (brother; 1796–1849

Mary Anning (21 May 1799 – 9 March 1847) was a British fossil collectordealer, and palaeontologist who became known around the world for important finds she made in the Jurassic marine fossil beds at Lyme Regis in Dorset, a county in Southwest England on the coast of the English Channel, where she lived. Her work contributed to fundamental changes that occurred during her lifetime in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the Earth.

Mary Anning searched for fossils in the area’s Blue Lias cliffs, particularly during the winter months when landslides exposed new fossils that had to be collected quickly before they were lost to the sea. It was dangerous work, and she nearly lost her life in 1833 during a landslide that killed her dog, Tray.

Her discoveries included the first ichthyosaur skeleton correctly identified, which she and her brother Joseph found when she was just twelve years old; the first two plesiosaur skeletons found; the first pterosaur skeleton located outside Germany; and important fish fossils. Her observations played a key role in the discovery that coprolites, known as bezoar stones at the time, were fossilised feces. She also discovered that belemnite fossils contained fossilised ink sacs like those of modern cephalopods. When geologist Henry De la Beche painted Duria Antiquior, the first widely circulated pictorial representation of a scene from prehistoric life derived from fossil reconstructions, he based it largely on fossils Anning had found, and sold prints of it for her benefit.

Anning’s gender and social class prevented her from fully participating in the scientific community of 19th-century Britain, dominated as it was by wealthy Anglican gentlemen. She struggled financially for much of her life. Her family was poor, and as religious dissenters, were subject to legal discrimination. Her father, a cabinetmaker, died when she was eleven.

She became well known in geological circles in Britain, Europe, and America, and was consulted on issues of anatomy as well as about collecting fossils. Nonetheless, as a woman, she was not eligible to join the Geological Society of London and she did not always receive full credit for her scientific contributions.

Indeed, she wrote in a letter: “The world has used me so unkindly, I fear it has made me suspicious of everyone.”The only scientific writing of hers published in her lifetime appeared in the Magazine of Natural History in 1839, an extract from a letter that Anning had written to the magazine’s editor questioning one of its claims.

After her death in 1847, her unusual life story attracted increasing interest. Charles Dickens wrote of her in 1865 that “the carpenter’s daughter has won a name for herself, and has deserved to win it.” In 2010, one hundred and sixty-three years after her death, the Royal Society included Anning in a list of the ten British women who have most influenced the history of science.

~~Impact and legacy~~

The geologist Henry De la Beche painted the influential watercolour Duria Antiquior in 1830 based largely on fossils found by Anning.

Anning’s discoveries became key pieces of evidence for extinction. Georges Cuvier had argued for the reality of extinction in the late 1790s based on his analysis of fossils of mammals such as mammoths. Nevertheless, until the early 1820s it was still believed by many scientifically literate people that just as new species did not appear, so existing ones did not become extinct — in part because they felt that extinction would imply that God’s creation had been imperfect; any oddities found were explained away as belonging to animals still living somewhere in an unexplored region of the earth.

The bizarre nature of the fossils found by Anning, some, such as the plesiosaur, so unlike any known living creature, struck a major blow against this idea.

The ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and pterosaur she found, along with the first dinosaur fossils which were discovered by Gideon Mantell and William Buckland during the same period, showed that during previous eras the earth was inhabited by creatures very different from those living today, and provided important support for another controversial suggestion of Cuvier’s: that there had been an “age of reptiles” when reptiles rather than mammals had been the dominant form of animal life. A phrase that became popular after the publication in 1831 of a paper by Mantell entitled “The Age of Reptiles” that summarised the evidence that there had been an extended geological era when giant reptiles has swarmed the land, air, and sea.

These discoveries also played a key role in the development of a new discipline of geo-historical analysis within geology in the 1820s that sought to understand the history of the earth by using evidence from fossils to reconstruct extinct organisms and the environments in which they lived. This discipline eventually came to be called palaeontology

Illustrations of scenes from “deep time” (now known as paleoart), such as Henry De la Beche’s ground-breaking painting Duria Antiquior, helped convince people that it was possible to understand life in the distant past. De la Beche had been inspired to create the painting by a vivid description of the food chain of the Lias by William Buckland that was based on analysis of coprolites. The study of coprolites, pioneered by Anning and Buckland, would prove to be a valuable tool for understanding ancient ecosystems.

Throughout the 20th century, beginning with H.A. Forde and his The Heroine of Lyme Regis: The Story of Mary Anning the Celebrated Geologist (1925), a number of writers saw Anning’s life as inspirational.

She was even the basis of Terry Sullivan’s 1908 tongue twister, “She sells seashells,” according to P.J. McCartney in Henry de la Beche (1978)

Posthumous painting of Anning by B. J. Donne from 1847, based on the 1842 portrait at the head of this article.

She sells seashells on the seashore
The shells she sells are seashells, I’m sure
So if she sells seashells on the seashore
Then I’m sure she sells seashore shells.
