The role of firefighters is very important, and these brave guys risk their own lives to save people and animals in trouble on a daily basis.

Yet, it turns out, not everyone is grateful for being rescued.

A Macaw parrot called Jessie was trapped on a London roof for three days. Some people feared she was injured, and that was why she didn’t come down. Yet, she wasn’t very happy when a rescue team came to rescue her.
Parrot owner: To bond with her say 'I love you'
Firefighter: 'I love you'
Jessie the Parrot: 'I love you'
Jessie then turned the air blue & flipped the firefighter the bird. Read the story of the potty-mouthed parrot in Cuckoo Hall Lane © — London Fire Brigade (@LondonFire) August 14, 2018 The London Fire Brigade was called amid concerns for Jessie and its welfare after owners and the RSPCA couldn’t get her down from the top of a house in Edmonton.

Brain Scans Reveal How Badly Emotional Abuse Damages Kids

While they were always aware of the impact of our childhood experienced on our cognitive development, experts were not sure to what degree until recently.

Yet, brain scans reveal the lasting effects of both, physical and emotional, trauma inflicted on a child.

Yet, emotional abuse hasn’t traditionally received the same attention as physical trauma, but researchers now recognize its detrimental effects on a person’s ability to function normally as an adult.

Emotional abuse and neglect can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In a side by side comparison, brain scans of an emotionally healthy child versus a neglected child, show huge differences in both size and structure of each brain. They have been shared by Professor Bruce Perry, the chief of psychiatry at Texas Children’s Hospital.

He explained:

“These images illustrate the negative impact of neglect on the developing brain. In the CT scan on the left is an image from a healthy three-year-old with an average head size.

Monkey Sharpens Rock and Uses It To Smash Through Glass Enclosure At Zoo

Footage taken at a Chinese zoo shows a monkey that tries to smash through a glass enclosure with a rock in an attempted escape.

The incident took place at the Zhengzhou Zoo in Central China’s Henan Province on the 20th of August.

The video shows a Colombian white-faced capuchin (Cebus capucinus) examining the glass with a rock in its hands. Then, it starts smashing the glass, eventually causing it to shatter into pieces.
According to a bystander, Mr. Wang, the monkey was actually sharpening the stone before the attempted escape.

‘The monkey was sharpening the stone, then, it started hitting it on the glass. The monkey scared itself away, but it came back to take another look and even touched it.”
Moreover, zoo visitors weren’t the only ones surprised, as the Columbian white-faced Capuchin scarpered once it realized what it had done.

Zhengzhou Zoo staff member Tian Shuliao explained that this monkey knows how to use tools.

How Far Will ‘Entitled’ Mom Go After Being Told No When She Asks If Her Kid Can Pet Service Dogs

Being assertive has its advantages, but sometimes, it can get out of hand. Megan Stoff, a dog handler, was at the local shopping mall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her dog, Nala.

Then, a mother approached her and asked if her young child could pet Nala, who happened to be on duty at the time.

This was not the first time Megan was asked to allow someone to pet the dogs under her care, but her answer is always negative. This is because this would confuse the dogs and disrupt the learning process.

Service dogs are trained to help people with disabilities, like hearing or visual impairments, diabetes, seizures, mental illness, and mobility impairment. These dogs accompany their owners everywhere they go and help with rudimentary tasks.

They originate from Germany, where the first guide dog training schools were set to care for World War I veterans.

Nowadays, thousands of service dogs are individually trained to work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.

Many people prefer to pay more, but help the environment, and avoid plastic and waste.

Pro-glass company My Own Bottle explains that glass is better for the planet, as it is made from all-natural, sustainable raw materials, is 100% recyclable, and can be reused endlessly.

On the other hand, plastic bottles are not biodegradable, so they can stick around for millennia.

Therefore, a growing number of young people try to satisfy their nostalgia for simpler times and go plastic-free, so they dairies in London claim there’s been a surge in interest as more youngsters become concerned with …

Appalachian Headwaters operates the Appalachian Beekeeping Collective. The charity was founded in 2016 with funds from a $7.5 million settlement from a lawsuit against coal mine company Alpha Natural Resources for violating the Clean Water Act.
The area now has the highest unemployment rate in the country, and the money has been used to fund environmental restoration projects and to develop sustainable economic opportunities in the region.

The nonprofit organization works to develop sustainable economic opportunities while restoring damaged ecosystems in central Appalachia.

All their current programs, community beekeeping, mined land restoration, and native plant horticultural, are designed and implemented to create local, long-term jobs.

Neuroscience Reveals How Gratitude Literally Rewires Your Brain To Be Happier

Do you say ‘thank you’ just to be polite or do you say it to express your gratitude? According to neuroscientists, if you feel it when you say it, you will be a very happy person. Expressing gratitude may have a huge impact on your overall health.

Psychologist Dr. Robert Emmons of the University of California at Davis and Dr. Michael McCullough of the University of Miami released a study in 2015 to put an emphasis on the physical outcome of practicing gratitude.

A third of the subjects wrote a daily journal of things that happened throughout their week for which they were really grateful. Another third of participants wrote down the things that irritate them on a daily basis.

The last group of participants wrote about the things they had no positive or negative emotional attachment to. After 10 weeks, participants talked about their feelings and their life in general.

The gratitude group was full of optimism and positive thinking. They were happy with their live, and were actually mo…

California is set to become the first state in the US which will ban the manufacture, sale, and purchase of the fur of certain wild animals.

Additionally, California has come together with Hawaii and New Jersey in banning various animals for entertainment and circus performances, except for tamed cats, dogs, and horses. Violation of this law can lead to a fine of $25,000.

On October 13th, the governor Gavin Newsom signed a pair of bills. The sale and manufacture of clothes, handbags, belts or shoes with fur are to cease from 2023.

Mr.Newsom stated:
California is a leader when it comes to animal welfare and today that leadership includes banning the sale of fur.

The Ethical Treatment of Animals lauded both new laws, and its vice-president, Tracy Reiman, stated:

Today is a historic day for animals in California, including those who have been whipped into p…

These Photos Perfectly Capture The Stages of Baby Development Before Birth

In 1957, the Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson (1922 – 2017) combined his passion for science and photography and compiled a collection of photos of the stages of baby development.
He documented the journey to conception by about two million sperm as they swam six inches upstream from a woman’s cervix to the eggs traveling down her fallopian tubes.

To do so, he used high-definition, three-dimensional ultrasound; a scanning electron microscope; advanced fiber optics; color filters to tint the photographic gray scale; and wide-angle lenses.

Yet, the images he took were not enough clear for publishing since they were in black and white, so he took them again in 1965 using the same process.

Then, LIFE magazine published them due to the clarity and depth with which they show the beginning of life.

LIFE then told its readers:
“Ten years ago, a Swedish photographer named Lennart Nilsson told us that he was going to photograph in color the stages of human reproduction from fertiliza…
