I watched the video and I definitely saw a statue of a light brown camel not in a cage. I, as a Filipino, Spanish, middle eastern, European relate to that camel. This is racially insensitive. It should be in a cage or removed.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent," Credited to Goebbles.

My other hobby is credit card points. I've been able to take my family (of five) to Hawaii for a week for free (and another trip coming up) and several trips to Europe and Mexico for me and the wife using points for hotel and airlines. My favorite card just increased its bonus to 35,000 points (from 25,000). The SPG Business card is a hotel card that also transfers to 30 different airlines (if you send 20,000 points they will add 5,000). For reference, a really nice hotel in Hawaii will put you back 12,000 points. If you have any questions, feel free to pm me. Referral Link: http://refer.amex.us/TRAVITK52d?XLINK=MYCP

Lacoste swaps out iconic croc logo for endangered species

https://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/natural-b ... ed-species

Paging Mr. Ed:

And as the name of the campaign suggests, these aren’t ordinary critters. All of the animals, rendered in the same instantly recognizable green embroidery as the croc, are endangered and/or threatened: the Burmese roofed turtle, the northern sportive lemur, the Javan rhino, the Cao-vit Gibbon, the kakapo (a ground-dwelling nocturnal parrot endemic to New Zealand), the Californian condor, the Sumatran tiger, the Anegada ground iguana, the Saola (an antelope-resembling bovine hailing from the mountains of Laos and Vietnam) and, last but not least, the incredibly rare and enigmatic porpoise species known as the vaquita.

China's Tiangong-1 space station will crash to Earth within weeks

Experts say it is impossible to plot where module will re-enter the atmosphere, but the chance is higher in parts of Europe, US, Australia and New Zealand.

“When considering the worst-case location … the probability that a specific person (ie, you) will be struck by Tiangong-1 debris is about one million times smaller than the odds of winning the Powerball jackpot.

She is at rest now, lost her this morning. Really didn't think we'd lose her first.
As she was at a top hospital in the ICU, didn't see this coming at all.
