It’s a video the Internet loved: A dachshund named Milo cleaning the teeth of a lion named Bonedigger. The unlikely pair, who took the Web by storm, have an even better story to share.
The lion and the wiener dog have been buddies since they were babies. When the lion was just a cub, he came to the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, Okla., with a bone disease that made it hard for him to walk.
Joe Schreibvogel, the zoo’s Entertainment Director, who lives on the zoo grounds, took the lion cub into his house and raised him, along with his litter of dachshund puppies. As the video shows, the two learn to get along at an early age. And it’s adorable. The two played together, ate together and, now, spend their days together.
I suppose this could just be an oversight, but it strikes me as kind of a REALLY BIG OVERSIGHT…
A video has been made showing the progress of the build of One World Trade Center in New York, at the site of the 9/11 bombings. The set of photos has been taken since 2004 and shows the tower rising from the ground to completion in April 2012. The spire, added on Friday, makes the tower the tallest in western hemisphere
No comment section; this has been up since Saturday.
The video is a rather incredible, and touching rendition of what it would be like for those of us who are heterosexual if the world suddenly found OUR sexuality deviant.
Amazing video; pretty well-done. The reversal of heterosexuality and homosexuality is really eye-opening.
Give it a look.
Kevin Slavin argues that we’re living in a world designed for — and increasingly controlled by — algorithms. In this riveting talk from TEDGlobal, he shows how these complex computer programs determine espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. Slavin also warns that we are writing code we can’t understand with implications we can’t control
IBM Research says it is serious about inspiring interest in science. And its latest effort may well achieve that goal.
Several of the company’s scientists recently put the finishing touches on “A Boy and His Atom,” which has been certified by the Guinness World Records as the world’s smallest-ever stop-motion film.
The project involved shooting 250 frames of a story built around a boy who goes on a playful journey involving dancing, bouncing on a trampoline, and playing catch. The noteworthy part? The film was made at the atomic level, using precisely-placed atoms that were manipulated over several days to tell the story.
FDD Chairman James Woolsey discusses why may have prevented US intelligence and law enforcement from being able to detect and thwart the Boston bombers.
Moments before he was captured by authorities Friday night, this is a surveillance image of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, as he was climbing out of the boat where he had likely been hiding for hours.
CBS News reported the image was taken from a helicopter that had been surveying the scene overhead. A Watertown, Mass. resident said he saw smeared blood on the boat parked in his backyard and that the cover had been torn. He reportedly used a ladder to climb up and saw a man inside.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose older brother and alleged accomplice Tamerlan was killed early Friday morning, was taken into custody and transported to a Boston-area hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during a shootout with police the night before.
