This video is very helpful because even if its cold outside you can still make your pork chops in the oven inside. Also if you don't cook very often this video can show you what to do and make you a better cook.

This video will help you change the way you make pork chops. It will enhance the flavor and make your family request pork chops all the time. Without having to use the grill, you can make pork chops any time of year and they are just as good if not better, especially with the sweet and sour sause.

With this video, someone can easily make a checkerboard cake, even though it looks like it has to be made professionally. This cake is very fun and creative and not very difficult to make. It combines four of your favorite flavors of cake.

Jackie Bashor's curator insight, April 8, 2014 11:31 AM

I have never seen something like this and it seems like it is very do-able.  It looks like something that would come out of a bakery, but you can do it at home by yourself!  It would take a lot of practice to do it perfectly, like done above, but I think the outcome would be worth the time!

this cake is so pretty and looks like a fun cake to bring to a birthday party!

Shut Down the Adoption and Sale of Pets on Craigslist

Shut Down the Adoption and Sale of Pets on Craigslist | animals | Scoop.it
Animal cruelty is perpetuated through the unregulated sale and adoption of pets on the classifieds website Craigslist. Many pets are sold online after being bred in puppy mills or stolen, and animal abusers take advantage of the website to find victims. Ask Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster to remove the ‘pets’ section on Craigslist entirely in efforts to end animal cruelty.

Via Carina Eriksson, Jackie Bashor
Karlie Cunniff's insight:

I think it is wrong for these pets to put up for adoption on Craig's list because anyone could call and adopt these animals and they might not be  capable of taking care of these animals properly. This is not fair to the animals. They should have owners who can take care of them the right way and give them the love they need.

This is so sad.  The fact that people who abuse animals are going on craigslist just to find their next victim is terrible.  Selling of animals should be kept off the internet because  they are just being taken advantage of and abused by random people.

Karlie Cunniff's insight:

I think this is really great idea and that they should really look into this more. It could really help reduce hunger and poverty in Africa so that people who are living there can have full meals that are nutritious and healthy for them. They can get the meat and the eggs from the chicken so that there is enough to eat for everyone and they can learn to take care of the chickens that way there problem of hunger and poverty will be less severe.

Zoobert (Siree)'s curator insight, February 15, 2014 5:16 AM

     This article is about scientists from the Iowa State University who are trying to research more about chickens. They are trying to look at the genetic makeup of the chickens in Africa in hopes of maybe improving nutrition, and stopping the scarcity of food in Africa. They are trying to find a way to strengthen chickens, and make a new breed that can better resist heat stress and Newcastle disease. Newcastle disease can kill half the birds in a flock in just a couple days. If this improvement happens, it will benefit African families in a direct way. The families can raise the flocks cheaply. This would also mean that the eggs chickens produced would have more nutrients, so people wouldn't need a lot of eggs to eat and could have more chickens instead.  In Africa, the women usually take care of the chickens. If this work succeeds, there is the possibility that it would help with nutrition needs, make poverty less severe, and also give women more authority.

     This helps me to better understand Africa because I now  understand that Africa is suffering a lot from nutrition loss, health issues limiting the amount of poultry production, and poverty. I understand that many people around the world have started organizations and have started doing experiments trying to figure out a way to help with all of these issues. Africa is struggling a lot, but this has helped me to realize that Africa is improving, and some of their issues are becoming less severe.

     I think that helping Africa in the way these scientists are, is very good. This improvement to poultry will not only help with one problem in Africa, but may others. I think that because it will help with numerous issues, it is not a waste of money or time to try it out. I do hope that Africa will not start trying to do things that are too unnatural, because that would be unhealthy and lead to other problems. I hope this chicken experiment will work out and that if it doesn't, people will keep trying to help Africa.

Karlie Cunniff's insight:

This is really sad that people are abusing animals this way. No one would want to be treated this way and just because they are animals doesn't mean they should do that to them. It is very wrong that they are hurting all these poor animals for no reason. If they can't treat an animal the right way then they shouldn't be allowed to be around the animals at all.

Cats and dogs occupy a unique place in the animal kingdom's vast menagerie.
Karlie Cunniff's insight:

Dogs and cats are similar to people by the way they act. The way they sleep, play and eat is very similar to humans. Like the cat in the above picture they sleep on there back just like a human does. This shows how they're  blurring the lines between being just a pet and being a person.

This is really inspirational.  The fact that one women has enough motivation to spread her love for makeup around the world, and is willing to bring it to different countries to advertise it is just amazing.

The Battle to Cheer Up Africa's Last Polar Bear - Wall Street Journal

Via Zoobert (Siree)
Karlie Cunniff's insight:

This is really sad that this is the last polar bear in Africa. They should try and make a really good home for him and make him really happy since he is the only one left. Because if he doesn't cheer up and stop being depressed it could lead to his death. 

more...
Zoobert (Siree)'s curator insight, March 3, 2014 7:04 AM

     This article is about a polar bear named Wang. Wang lives in a zoo in Africa in Johannesburg. Wang and his companion Geebee were the only polar bears left in Africa. Geebee just recently died of a heart failure. Wang is now alone and the people at the zoo are trying to keep Wang happy. Now he is the last polar bear in Africa and he is reaching his life expectancy age too. The people in the zoo know this, and also know that if Wang continues to be depressed about his companion's death, it could lead to his own death. Wang's keepers also are worried that Wang's liver trouble and a summer heat wave that is coming, could kill him. The keepers are trying to give Wang lots of treats and make his habitat a better place, so that he will be happy. Wang has also been given treats that make him think his way to get to them. This occupies his mind and helps him forget about his grief. So far, these new changes are making Wang more active. Wang's zookeepers are not thinking of letting him into the wild, as he is now more African than polar. 

     This article helps me understand that animals are more than just animals. They have feelings too, and this article gives proof of that. Animals should be treated better and with more respect than they are nowadays. If people really looked at animals, they would realize that we are not much different to them. This article has helped me realize this. I have also come to realize more and more, how the world is losing much of its animals due to peoples' selfish desires, and climate changes. 

     I think that it must be very hard for Wang, and I feel so bad for him. While reading this article I felt like I would cry for Wang. It must be hard enough for him living in a zoo. I wish that animals were not even put in zoos and could just have the freedom to be in their natural habit. It is not fair to them. I am very glad that the zookeepers have realized Wang's grief and that they have made him their top priority. I wish I could help. I'm glad that there are people out there who are still willing to help, because as long as there are people like that, this world will be okay for a little while longer.

Maggie Tremblay's comment, April 10, 2014 11:03 AM
This is actually really sad:( I wonder why they don't try to help create more or preserve the ones they had before so that they wouldn't be in this situation!
