  1. Don't forget they were very fragile and vulnerable to many predators.
  2. Possible extinction in the wild but not in captivity. They can be found in Singapore Bird Park. https://www.wrs.com.sg/en/jurong-bird-park/animals-and-zones/blue-macaws.html Hopefully they are able to reproduce more.
  3. Kuwait wanted the Thai government to detain the Saudi teens, and Canada rescued her for the sake of so-called human rights. What about the Huawei woman whom Trump had requested to detain? What about her human rights?
  4. I remember in one of the interview, the surgeon had warned his nose will fall off very soon if he undergoes another nose job.
  5. New year new face soon! http://www.purepeople.com/article/rodrigo-alves-nouvelles-operations-pour-une-renovation-complete-du-visage_a319979/1
  6. From National Geographic: Lonely George the tree snail dies, and a species goes extinct One famous snail’s death highlights the plight faced by diverse Hawaiian snails, of which there were once hundreds of species. By Christie Wilcox PUBLISHED January 8, 2019 The world’s loneliest snail is no more. George, a Hawaiian tree snail—and the last known member of the species Achatinella apexfulva—died on New Year’s Day. He was 14, which is quite old for a snail of his kind. George was born in a captive breeding facility at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa in the early 2000s, and soon after, the rest of his kin died. That’s when he got his name—after Lonesome George, the Pinta Island tortoise who was also the last of his kind. For over a decade, researchers searched in vain for another member of the species for George to mate with, to no avail. (Though these snails are hermaphrodites, two adults must mate to produce offspring, and researchers refer to George as a “he.”) “I’m sad, but really, I’m more angry because this was such a special species, and so few people knew about it,” says Rebecca Rundell, an evolutionary biologist with State University of New York who used to help care for George and his kin. Throughout his life, George was a public face for the struggles facing Hawaiian land snails. His death highlights both the vast diversity of indigenous snails—and their desperate plight. “I know it’s just a snail, but it represents a lot more,” says David Sischo, a wildlife biologist with the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources and coordinator of the Snail Extinction Prevention Program. Silencing the forest Snails were once incredibly numerous in Hawaii, and the loss of a species is a blow to the ecosystem. Records from the 19th century claim that 10,000 or more shells could be collected in a single day. “Anything that is abundant in the forest is an integral part of it,” says Michael Hadfield, an invertebrate biologist who ran the captive breeding program for rare native Hawaiian snails until the late 2000s. And these creatures are incredibly diverse: There were once more than 750 species of land snail in Hawaii, including a little over 200 in the tree snail family. When they arrived on the islands, the snails branched out and took on a variety of ecological roles. Some of these species came to function as decomposers—like earthworms, which are not native to the islands—and fulfill the essential ecological role of breaking down detritus. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2019/01/george-the-lonely-snail-dies-in-hawaii-extinction/
  7. Guy Refuses To Pay $126 For His Date’s Food, So She Shows Him Her True Colors By Gerda First dates can be an awkward social minefield in general, and this little ambiguity only adds to the confusion. Reddit user u/CuteBananaMuffin decided to share his story recently, and it’s fair to say, his date was definitely the old-fashioned type. After doing the progressive (and frankly, fair) thing on the first date, he thought he’d try to ask her out again. He obviously thought it had gone pretty well, and perhaps it had, up until the fateful moment the restaurant bill appeared. “The date was fun at first until she started talking about another guy and how much she liked him, but I thought ‘let’s eat, talk and leave’ since she’s into another guy, and it all crumbled when it came to the bill,” he told Bored Panda. “She was shocked that I let her pay. She didn’t say anything at the time, but from her facial expression I realized she was furious.” “I usually pay for both sides when it comes to the bill, but I’m a student and I work 60 hours a week to pay for food, books etc. so I obviously couldn’t afford to pay 110 euros for her food. I asked her out again to apologize pretty much for the previous time, hoping we can go to a cheaper place so I could make up for it, but as you can see, the result was really bad… https://www.boredpanda.com/guy-refuses-pay-first-date-dinner/
  8. I feel like... It's coming.... Walllllllllllllll M climbing the wall! This video is so ahead of the time! She's such a psychic! She can predict the future!
  9. He's a living legend. But I have no idea why BBC dropped him from their latest documentary.
  10. They will learn eventually who's actually helping them to earn their revenue.
  11. Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th Existing posts containing porn will be switched to private mode By Shannon Liao@Shannon_Liao Dec 3, 2018, 12:26pm EST Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tells The Verge. The new policy’s announcement comes just days after Tumblr was removed from Apple’s iOS App Store over a child pornography incident, but it extends far beyond that matter alone. “Adult content will no longer be allowed here,” the company flatly states in a blog post set to be published on Monday. Banned content includes photos, videos, and GIFs of human genitalia, female-presenting nipples, and any media involving sex acts, including illustrations. The exceptions include nude classical statues and political protests that feature nudity. The new guidelines exclude text, so erotica remains permitted. Illustrations and art that feature nudity are still okay — so long as sex acts aren’t depicted — and so are breastfeeding and after-birth photos. After December 17th, any explicit posts will be flagged and deleted by algorithms. For now, Tumblr is emailing users who have posted adult content flagged by algorithms and notifying them that their content will soon be hidden from view. Posts with porn content will be set to private, which will prevent them from being reblogged or shared elsewhere in the Tumblr community. Users have a chance to appeal Tumblr’s decision in situations where they think there’s been a mistake, and the platform admits there’s a chance that the automated tools it’s using could make errors. It’s a process that could take a while, as a bulk of Tumblr posts feature explicit content. Users who run adult blogs can also export their content before the change takes place in order to save what they have.

  12. Human rights is applicable to China only 'cos China's president didn't help in making American great again. Whereas for Saudi prince, he's exempted from human rights.
  13. Ohio GM Workers Voted for Trump. Now They Want Him to ‘Step Up’ https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-27/trump-promised-jobs-for-ohio-voters-they-want-him-to-deliver Trump gave GM that huge tax break worth billions but GM go fire thousands and make even more money. Can’t feel sorry. They should have known. They got what they voted for.
  14. It depends on which type of TV you're talking about? 400-500 euro are those non-digital, lesser pixel TV. For those 4K resolution TV can cost you $$$$.
  15. Trump offers GM millions of fund relief but GM lays off more jobs instead of creating jobs and making America great again. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/26/business/general-motors-cutbacks.html
  16. Based on Stefano's previous incident, I'm almost 100% sure it's him. But $$$ speaks louder than anything, hence they have to find a shitty excuses to cover his "mistake".
  17. So as long as he gets the cheap oil, he doesn't care who they kill.
