San Diego Zoo is caring for two adorable, yet deadly, carnivorous kittens

The African black-footed cat might be the cutest, least harmful kitten ever, but in reality, it is the deadliest cat in the world. With a success rate of 60 percent while hunting, these itty bitty darlings are straight-up carnivores.The San Diego Zoo welcomed two black-footed kittens on April 28. Ryder, a male, and Skyler, a female, currently weigh in at a pound and a half each. Black-footed cats typically only weigh two to four pounds well into adulthood but can consume up to 14 rodents and birds in a single night. Compare that to lions who only catch their prey 20 to 25 percent of the time.Currently, zookeepers feed Ryder and Skyler small pieces of meat with tongs while they’re still nursing from their mother.“This allows us to make sure that the cats don’t...

Countries with male leaders have had 4.3 TIMES more Covid-19 deaths

Countries with female leaders have fared significantly better during the coronavirus pandemic than nations led by men, research suggests.An international team of experts led by Trinity College Dublin analysed outbreaks in 35 countries, 10 of which were run by women.Among them were Germany, New Zealand, Denmark and Finland - four nations which have been widely praised for their responses to the pandemic.The study found male-led countries had six times more Covid-19 deaths than nations with women in power.

Honda’s cutting the Fit, Civic Coupe, and stickshift Accord

It’s the end of an era: Honda is retiring its Fit subcompact and Civic coupe, and the Accord sedan will no longer have a manual transmission.But the “save the manuals” folks can still breathe a sigh of relief. While the Accord may be going autobox-only, the Civic will keep a stick shift in the sedan, hatchback, Si, and Type R.The models on the chopping block will disappear at the end of 2020 because, according to Automotive News, they’re not selling well enough for Honda to make a business case for them.In place of the Fit, the subcompact HR-V crossover, and base levels of the Civic, will become the company’s entry-level vehicles.Part of the Fit’s popularity problem was the rise of Honda’s other “five-door” model, the Civic Hatchback, built in Swindon, U.K. Honda introduced it t...

It encourages residents to “wear a mask at all times outside the home and maintain physical distance.” And it recommends that public officials “close bars and gyms” and “limit social gatherings t...

‘MY IQ IS 195’: Video of ‘Karen’ at Toronto anti-mask protest goes viral

The man behind a viral video of a ‘Karen’ at a recent Toronto anti-mask rally says he filmed the protesters to help those who may be on the fence about mask wearing to make an informed decision.In a series of three videos recorded on July 7 using a chest harness camera, Brian Tao challenges a group of a few dozen protesters on a number of their points — including how virus particles are able to penetrate through the fabric of a mask, but yet oxygen molecules cannot, despite being smaller than virus particles.“I know a lot of people ask — why do I engage?” Tao mused Friday in an interview with the Sun.“The point isn’t to convince those particular people, because you’ll probably never convince them. They’re set in their beliefs. But the (videos) can be used as an example for those ...
