He Noticed Something Down In A Deep Well. What They Pulled Out Is Unbelievable.

With only a thin rope and their bravery, an Indian community that had joined forces with a local rescue group saved a drowning dog that had fallen into a well. Without a moment to spare, they sprung to action and lowered one of their members into the well to fetch the poor pup. That’s the easy part. Getting out of the well, as we’re all, ahem, well aware, is the challenge. Take a look at how the motley rescue crew came together to bring that dog to safety. Hang in there, buddy! Animal Aid Unlimited Don’t worry, help is on the way! Animal Aid Unlimited Okay, the dog has been saved from drowning. Now here’s the tricky part: Animal Aid Unlimited actually getting out of the well. Animal Aid Unlimited Luckily, both the community and rescue group members could work together… Animal Aid Unlimited and pull them both up to safety. Animal Aid Unlimited Can’t ask for a happier ending than that! Animal Aid Unlimited Here’s a whole video of the rescue. (H/T Life with Dogs) Great job, all of you! And to think, some of us can’t even work together with our neighbors on determining what could be considered an appropriate volume level for watching “Game of Thrones” on TV.

What This Photographer Captured Over Phoenix Looks Like A Nightmare

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); Something magical and unexpected recently happened over the arid city of Phoenix, Arizona. And a photographer managed to capture it all on film! Jerry Ferguson was in the right place at the right time when he saw a microburst open up over the city. What he captured and later shared with the internet truly showcases the wonder of Mother Nature and her awesome power. There’s luck, and then there’s skill. As far as capturing this video is concerned, it probably took a bit of...

I Don’t Care If You Like Golf Or Not. This. Is. INSANE.

Golfing is hard. Don’t let those pros on TV make you think any different. That’s why we hate it when those friends of ours brag about being a natural at the game. What they don’t ever tell you is how many thousands of dollars they dropped on lessons and buckets of balls, right? Have your friends put their money where their mouths are and take them to this impossible course in Idaho. Something tells us they might need a few gimme strokes… The 14th hole on the Lake Coeur d’Alene golf course in Idaho is the most challenging pin you’ll ever try to hit. Especially since the man-made island green at the end is designed to move, providing a playable length ranging from 110 to 210 yards for men and 65 to 130 for women. Daily Mail Players tee off from shore, then board a small electric passenger ferry known as ‘Putter’ for the trip to the floating green of the Par 3 hole. Just remember, if you manage to land your ball on the bobbing green, you’ll have to catch a boat out to take your next shot. Daily Mail A boat attendant assists the players and caddies on and off the boat and on the return trip, a certificate of achievement is awarded to players with their name and score in calligraphy. Daily Mail As Andy Mackimmie, head professional at the course, says: “The fourteenth is the ultimate risk and reward. Land on the island, and you’re a hero. Otherwise, you’ll join one of thousands of balls fished out of the water by divers every year.” Daily Mail...

This Dog Thanks A Woman For Stopping To Help Him Get Some Water

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); I don’t understand people who abuse animals. I can’t comprehend why someone would want to terrorize a poor creature that just wants love and care. All you have to do is offer up a tiny bit of respect and that animal will forever be grateful. If this sounds a little far-fetched, below is an incredible example of this. When a young woman saw a distressed dog on the street who’d clearly been neglected or abused, she approached the pup… This made my heart swell. YouTube googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); All she had to do was show the dog some kindness and he thanked her in a beautiful way. We can all stand to be a bit kinder to those around us — including our furry friends. Share this if it touched your...

State Dept. orders embassies to close this Sunday due to terror threats

United States to close "unspecified number of embassies around the world on Sunday over security concerns" says @StateDept — Jon Williams (@WilliamsJon) August 1, 2013 The Obama administration has either gotten word that there are terror attacks in the planning stages or somebody else is going to release a YouTube video that might offend.

Missing in action: The Federalist tracks down America’s invisible Ebola czar

We already have an Ebola Czar. Her name is Dr. Lurie. But she's MIA. And where did all that #Ebola money go? #NCSen — Pete Kaliner (@PeteKaliner) October 14, 2014 The government’s confused response to the Ebola epidemic has had some calling for the appointment of an Ebola czar to head the United States’ response to the crisis. As Mollie Hemingway writes in The Federalist today, however, the country already has an Ebola czar: Dr. Nicole Lurie, HHS Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. Her job? …as National Journal rather glowingly puts it, “Lurie’s job is to plan for the unthinkable. A global flu pandemic? She has a plan. A bioterror attack? She’s on it. Massive earthquake? Yep. Her responsibilities as assistant secretary span public health, global health, and homeland security.” A profile of Lurie quoted her as saying, “I have responsibility for getting the nation prepared for public health emergencies—whether naturally occurring disasters or man-made, as well as for helping it respond and recover. It’s a pretty significant undertaking.” Still another refers to her as “the highest-ranking federal official in charge of preparing the nation to face such health crises as earthquakes, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, and pandemic influenza.” So, hands up: who knew we had an Ebola czar named Dr. Nicole Lurie? And where is she? Why has Obama's Ebola Czar (yes, we have an Ebola Czar) been totally MIA during this crisis? http://t.co/UImXxBiwof — Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 14, 2014 @RBPundit We have an Ebola Czar? I've never seen this woman in my life. — Lem (@Lemang01) October 14, 2014 Have you heard of Dr Lurie? No? That's weird since she is responsible...

As The Mouse Approached The Trap, I Cringed So Hard. And Then… What The What?

Do you ever watch a video and cringe when you think something terrible is about to happen? Sometimes I’ll be driving and see a small animal crossing the street. With each car passing, swerving even to avoid hitting him, I live and die with each passing moment. Hopefully whatever made him dare to cross was worth it, because I’m not sure the juice is worth the squeeze. So when I saw our little friend here seemingly tempting fate, you can imagine I feared the worst…until I was SO WRONG.

A Politician Threw A Snowball On The Senate Floor To Try To Disprove Climate Change

As you may know, that’s not how the science works. 1. Sen. Jim Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma, has taken a number of stands against the idea that human actions are dangerously changing the climate. View this image › Sue Ogrocki / AP 2. He even wrote a book on the “hoax” and “conspiracy” of global warming. View this image › Amazon / Via amazon.com 3. On Thursday, he turned to a visual aid to boost his message. I like to call this picture: “Screengrab of snowball on Senate floor just now” … — HowardMortman (@Howard Mortman) 4. “Do you know what this is? It’s a snowball.” vine.co “Mr. President, catch this.” 5. But scientists have reached a consensus that humans are contributing to climate change. Enjoy this brief refresher on how it works. Video available at: http://vimeo.com/115961049. vimeo.com Bonus: farting cows. 6. The snow storms the U.S. has experienced this year are weather. Climate, on the other hand, is the pattern of weather over many years. Cold weather doesn’t mean the overall climate isn’t getting warmer. View this image › David Zalubowski / AP The Union of Concerned Scientists explains further: *Hot air tends to cause droughts. It also tends to hold on to more moisture. That means that when it does finally rain or snow, it comes down more heavily. *Not only that, climate change doesn’t cancel out the seasons, which are caused by the tilt of the Earth’s axis. Even if this decade is hotter than those in the past, winter will still exist each year. *The last few winters have been the effect of an...
