If you’ve ever told a big lie (like I did) and feel ashamed know this

I darted away anytime I saw Mr. Johnson coming and I actually managed to keep my distance from him for the first few months I worked there. But one day Mr. Johnson finally caught up with me. I WENT THROUGH A LONG, DARK TIME. I PRAYED GOD WOULD END IT. HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED I was walking through the stockroom when, from behind me, I heard Mr. Johnson brusquely say, “Josh, come over here.” I kept walking. “Josh!” he yelled. I turned around, looked at him, squinted, pointed to my ear and said, “I’m sorry, my hearing is bad.” “Oh,” he said, raising his voice, “can you get these boxes off the pallet?” “I’m sorry, what?” I said. “It’s my hearing.

Wiley The Dalmatian Has A Heart On His Nose And People Are In Love

hi.wiley Wiley found his way to Smith, who lives in Colorado, from Oklahoma on Saint Patrick’s day of last year and while his unique markings make him stand out, she says that’s not the reason she chose him. hi.wiley “He came from a litter of 11, and 8 of them were boys, so I had a tough choice in choosing him. The heart was there, but not fully formed to the point where I believed it would stay since dalmatian spots change so much as they grow. I chose him because the breeder told me that all he did was sleep, snuggle, and eat, so we already had a lot in common.” hi.wiley Well, the sleepy little pup she first …

Leaving EU with no deal ‘very adverse’

“Leaving without a deal would have a very adverse effect, to put it mildly, on our economy, on our security and on the integrity of the union,” he said. The justice secretary said he hoped a deal will have been struck by 27 February, when the next round of Brexit votes are scheduled in the Commons. But he continued: “If not, then we will have to act responsibly and make sure the economy is protected, our security is protected and the integrity of the union is protected. “I have very grave concerns about the consequences of leaving without a deal.” Mr Gauke has previously suggested Brexit might have to be delayed.

This Interactive Map Shows You Just How Much Climate Change Will Affect Your Hometown

Climate change is one of the biggest threats currently facing the planet, if not the biggest threat. So much so that the World Economic Forum has warned we are “sleepwalking into catastrophe”. The planet is already starting to feel some of the effects of this change, from the record-breaking heatwaves in Australia to the number of extreme weather events in the US. Yet, it can be extremely hard to picture how something as seemingly abstract as climate change will affect us in the future – and this is where Matt Fitzpatrick from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science steps in. Fitzpatrick and his colleague Robert R. Dunn have built an interactive map, matching 540 urban areas across the US and Canada to towns and cities whose contemporary …

So Long, Opportunity And Thanks For All The Science

Solving world hunger is complicated. This brilliant solution is one we haven’t seen yet.

Would you eat food grown on top of a landfill? Your first reaction may not be the right one. Right now, you’re probably feeling a little grossed out. Who could ever imagine that food grown on top of a dump could be edible? But here’s something even more sobering to consider: one in eight Americans struggle with food insecurity. Food deserts are a huge contributor to that statistic. These are remote places (often rural) where local produce isn’t readily available. Few grocery stores sell fresh food there, they don’t have farmer’s markets (something many of us are used to in metropolitan areas) or community vegetable gardens. That’s where Joy Youwakim comes in. She discovered an innovative approach to growing produce …
