Ganges: The holy men fasting to death keep a river alive

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-46436841

Over the past two decades, holy men in India have gone on dozens of fasts demanding governments honour their promise to revive the polluted Ganges, a river revered by Hindus. The recent death of one of the most prominent hunger strikers made headlines. Soutik Biswas went to find out more.

In a quiet ashram (retreat) near the pilgrim town of Haridwar, a young seer says he would die to save the Ganges.

Atmabodhanand is on the 40th day of a fast begun after the ashram's most prominent resident starved himself to death two months ago.

The 26-year-old computer science dropout from Kerala state spends his days lying under a blanket on a bed beneath a mango tree. When night falls and the air gets chillier, he moves inside the spartan quarters and sleeps.

"I am ready to die," he told me. "Our ashram has a history of sacrifice."

CIA secretly created 'remote control' DOGS in the 1960s by surgically implanting electrodes in their brains, declassified documents reveal
CIA documents reveal that they tested on dogs in mind control experiments
Officials have been trying to hide top secret documents for decades
Files reveal that the CIA controlled dog's minds using electrodes in their skulls
'Behaviour modification' experiments were an illegal mind control project
Files were released by The Black Vault, a declassified government records site


The CIA created remote control dogs by surgically implanting electrodes in their brains in 1963, newly released documents reveal.

US officials have been trying to hide the top secret 'behaviour modification' files for decades, but they have now been released under the country's Freedom of Information laws.

Experimenters implanted devices inside the skulls of six canines and used electrical stimulation to guide them through an open field, making them run, turn and stop.

The top secret experiments were part of the infamous mind control project MKUltra.

Roger, the ripped kangaroo and 'true icon,' has died

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/12/10/a...76jBQ0vDUOp69g


(CNN)A burly kangaroo whose buff physique shot him to internet fame has died at the age of 12.

"We have lost our beautiful boy, Roger," Chris Barnes, owner of the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Australia, announced on Saturday on Facebook.
Roger, who was 6 foot 7 inches and weighed nearly 200 pounds in his prime, was rescued by Barnes as a joey after his mother was killed on a highway.
In a video tribute to the marsupial, Barnes said he was inspired to set up the 188-acre sanctuary in Alice Springs to house the famous kangaroo and his growing harem of wives.
"I built it so they had a place to live," he said. Roger was the sanctuary's alpha male for many years, Barnes added. "He grew up to be a kangaroo that people from all over the world have grown to love as much as we love him too."

FINNISH BURGER CHAIN GOES FULLY VEGAN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

https://www.livekindly.co/finnish-bu...94qMv1wJrq9q0U




Lauren Wills
Freelance Journalist and Environmental Research Intern | Bristol, UK | Contactable via [email protected]
Finnish burger chain Bun2Bun is ditching the animal products and introducing an exclusively vegan menu in a bid to do its part for the environment.

Launching this week in Helsinki with three locations, Bun2Bun is now the nation’s first-ever vegan burger chain. The company has operated since spring, serving meat-based patties; speaking to News Now Finland, Bun2Bun co-owner and chef Pertti Kallioinen explained the change. “Why to change everything? Because I think as an entrepreneur I need to do my part as well for the environment,” he said.

Kallioinen and co-owner Pasi Hassinen already run two vegan-friendly chains, so it seemed logical to them that their next move would transform Bun2Bun with plant-based burgers.

The pair doesn’t think the new menu will deter meat-eating customers, though. “We’re not trying to make [it] a big thing that we’re vegan, we’re a burger chain but everything is vegan,” Kallioinen explained. “Everyone should start to think more about vegan options. Vegan is not bad. It’s very tasty.”

The vegan patties are from Beyond Meat, a California-based food tech company famous for its pea-protein Beyond Burger, which replicates the taste and texture of a beef patty and even “bleeds.” In line with Bun2Bun’s new eco-ethos, Beyond Meat received the United Nations’ “Champion of the Earth” recognition earlier this year for developing this sustainable beef alternative.

'A loud and clear message': California passes historic farm animal protections
Law sets new space requirements for pigs, chickens and cows and also bans sale of caged eggs from 2022


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...prop-12-passes

It was a big night for California chickens, cows, and pigs as midterms voters overwhelmingly supported an initiative codifying the most progressive animal welfare protections in the world.

California Proposition 12, which passed with more than 61% of the vote, sets specific space requirements for confined animals raised for food.

Building on a popular but flawed 2008 measure, which was supposed to ensure animals had space to turn around, stretch, and lie down, the updated rules specify square footage for each animal.




The proposition also adds an enforcement mechanism, giving the initiative teeth its predecessor lacked. The state’s department of food and agriculture, alongside its department of public health, will now be charged with overseeing the regulations and violators could face misdemeanor charges and fines.

U.S. Slaughterhouses Caught Boiling Animals Alive, Freezing Them to Death

By Julie Cappiello - December 19, 2018
An investigation by The Guardian and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism into U.S. slaughterhouses found chickens slowly freezing to death, being boiled alive, drowning, and suffocating under piles of other birds.

Hundreds of inspection logs from the United States Department of Agriculture detail numerous incidents of animal cruelty in chicken factory farms and slaughterhouses across the country.

Some logs report thousands of birds dying from heat stress or freezing to death when they were left waiting in transport trucks during heat waves or frigid temperatures. Inspectors noted repeatedly that the facilities had not provided adequate shelter to protect the animals from extreme weather. Other records reveal hundreds of turkeys and chickens bludgeoned, suffocated, or scalded.

Question

Ancient Baobab trees in Southern Africa are dying. Scientists blame climate change

(CNN)Driving beyond South Africa's Limpopo province, into the village of Chivadini, people and grassland are scarce. But the oldest living organisms in Africa -- baobab trees -- are abundant.

These spectral behemoths blend into the Saharan countryside and have been an icon of the African savannah since millennia.
As the oldest seed producing trees in the world, their resilience -- some are more than 2,000 years old -- have earned them many names in myths, legends and folklore.
The baobab has been called the tree of life, the monkey bread tree and the upside down tree -- owing to its fat trunk with roots meandering toward the sky.
But these strange looking giants are dying.
Some of the oldest and biggest baobab trees in southern Africa have died recently, and it may be due to climate change, according to a 2018 study published in the journal Nature Plants.

Some of the trees located in Zimbabwe, Namibia, South Africa, Botswana and Zambia dated back to the times of the ancient Greeks.
