Dublin hemp shop says cannabis oil helps autistic children



A Dublin head shop has been giving unfounded medical advice about a medicinal marijuana product to parents of children with autism.

Staff at The Hemp Company on Capel Street gave advice to an undercover Times reporter last month about Cannabidiol oil, a derivative of the marijuana plant, saying that it would “instantly” calm an autistic three-year-old and make her more vocal.

The incredible act of cross-species love: Bald eagles choose to NURTURE an enemy hawk rather than eat it
A pair of bald eagles have decided to adopt a red-tailed hawk in a rare event
Bald eagles and red-tailed hawks are bitter enemies and often fight in sky battles
Scientists believe the hawk chick was originally stolen from its nest as a snack
But the sounds of its cries prompted the mother to start raising it as her own

WHY DID THEY ADOPT THE HAWK CHICK?
A pair of bald eagles have decided to raise a chick of their natural enemy, the red-tailed hawk, in a rare event that has stunned wildlife experts.
An expert believes the female eagle's maternal instincts may have prompted it to adopt the chick.
'My guess is that this little guy begged loud and hard for food—not even thinking about the danger,' Dr David Bird, from the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, told the Vancouver Sun.
'Food overrides everything in these birds.
'He begged away and mom and dad said, "OK, here's an open, gaping beak. Let's put food in it".'

This Beef Farmer Had a Change of Heart and Sent His Cows to a Sanctuary
by Sarah Von Alt - June 16, 2017



According to BBC News, one beef farmer has saved his cows from slaughter by sending them to a sanctuary.

In total, 63 cows will get to live out their lives in peace at an animal sanctuary in the U.K. And 30 of the cows were pregnant, so these mother cows will get to care for their young.

BBC explains:

Mr. Wilde, who switched from dairy farming to organic beef production on the death of his father in 2011, said he always wanted to give up animal production because he "couldn't believe it was right to eat them."

And to top it off, the farmer has decided to open an organic vegan market that supplies veggies grown without animal products or fertilizers!

EXCLUSIVE: 500kg of horn for sale as rhino owner hosts controversial global online auction
24 June 2017 - 09:49


The world’s biggest rhino breeder has announced plans to sell part of his massive stockpile of horns in a global online auction, sparking concern that this could undermine the 40- year-old international ban on rhino horn trading.

Billed as the world’s first “legal rhino horn auction”, the three-day sale is scheduled for midday on August 21.

South African businessman and game rancher John Hume, who has nearly 1500 rhinos at his game farm in the North West, has a stockpile of nearly six tons of horns that he wants to sell. This after he won a series of court battles earlier this year to overturn the eight-year-old moratorium on the domestic sale of rhino horns.

Hume – along with other private rhino breeders - has been removing horns from his herd for several years. The animals are anaesthetised and the top section of the horn removed so that they can regrow naturally as part of a “bloodless, horn-harvesting” operation.

In an attempt to halt the unrelenting slaughter of rhinos in Africa and Asia by poaching syndicates, a ban on the international sale of rhino horns came into force in 1977 by member states of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). This was followed by a 2009 ban on the sale of rhino horns within South Africa that coincided with an unprecedented spike in horn poaching.

Now that Hume has overturned the moratorium on domestic sales within South Africa, he plans to sell 500kg of horns in an online auction that will be open to bidders from China, Vietnam and other nations. A condition of sale is that the horns will have to remain in South Africa until global trade is unbanned - or alternatively, until foreign buyers are granted import and export permits from South Africa and their home nations.

Senior officials of the Department of Environmental Affairs and South Africa’s Private Rhino Owners Association (PROA) held a meeting in Pretoria early on Friday to wrangle over the terms of the proposed auction. It it is understood that the department raised a number of concerns over import and export permit procedures yesterday, but Hume told TMG Digital that the auction was going ahead regardless.

Gatsby's rescue from dog meat farm changed my life

By Randi Kaye, CNN




(CNN)I was on assignment in Manchester, New Hampshire covering politics, but I had puppies on my mind. My husband and I were in the market for a golden retriever, and I had reached out to a handful of rescue organizations to adopt one. Then one day in February 2016, as I was working on a script, a text message came through.

I opened it to find a picture of a golden retriever puppy staring back at me. His face was so sweet and his eyes so big and brown and warm, it practically felt as if he was hugging me with them.

Why Homes Built With Cannabis Concrete Are the Wave of the Future, Man

In addition to its many other delightful uses, cannabis can also make for a reliable building material. In Ein Hod, Israel, architectural firm Tav Group has created an "ecological house" using all earth-based materials, including one of the dankest substances around: hemp. The building's walls are made of local stone from the site's excavation material, while the upper floor walls are cast in a concrete alternative called hempcrete, made out of hemp mixed with lime.

The cannabis-based building material is an ecologically responsible alternative to typical concrete, which can cause a variety of environmental troubles, particularly in the toxic process of producing it. Hemp, on the other hand, makes for a groovy and natural construction alternative, and it even offers benefits that traditional concrete can't provide.

Poachers Just Killed A Zoo Rhino While She Was Sleeping And Stole Her Horn

Her name was Maxine.

BY SARAH V SCHWEIG
JUNE 23, 2017

Maxine, a white rhino living at a zoo in South Africa, was brutally killed this week by poachers who broke in and stole her horn.



Even though some staff live on the grounds, it's reported that no one heard anything at Natal Zoological Gardens and the Lion Park in the early hours of Tuesday morning when the intruders shot Maxine in the head at point-blank range and then dehorned her.

This isn’t the first time poachers have gone to such lengths to steal rhino horn, which is worth more than its weight in gold. In February, two armed men broke into Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage and held staff hostage while killing two baby rhinos for their horns. In March, a 4-year-old white rhino named Vince, who lived at a zoo near Paris, France, was also murdered and dehorned by intruders.

Fish farms shoot dozens of seals to save salmon bound for ‘ethical’ Waitrose and M&S supermarkets
More than 1,500 seals were reported shot in the past six years in Scotland
Marine Harvest supplies Sainsbury’s and Waitrose and Scottish Sea Farms supplies Marks and Spencer’s - they reported shooting 40 seals in 2016
But Marine Harvest says that if seals attack fish, then they will shoot them
Acoustic devices are one measure used to drive them away without shooting
There are fewer grey seals than African elephants in the world, campaigners say
Scientists warn that the UK's grey seal has also been hit by a fatal disease
