Elephants to Retire From Ringling Brothers Stage

It's about time...

But after decades of animal rights activists claiming that it treats the giant creatures cruelly, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey announced Thursday that its three touring circuses, performing 1,000 shows a year, would phase out elephant acts by 2018.
The animals have been an iconic part of the show, but the circus will phase them out by 2018, amid growing public concern over how they are treated.

Look, I dance for the man to live. Tell me it's not possible for elephants to humanely do the same? Is it that expensive to treat them well?

This May Be The Live-Action He-Man Movie's Badass Battle Cat

Looks badass indeed!!
Details on the live-action Masters of the Universe movie have been scarce to say the least, but the Senior VP of Production at Sony/Columbia Pictures, DeVon Franklin, just tweeted this extremely impressive picture of He-Man's steed Battle Cat. What could it be other than concept art from the movie?

Largest mall in the U.S. proposed for Miami-Dade

Pretty insane! Miami is growing way too fast! :p
A 200-acre attraction, to be built by the company behind Minnesota’s Mall of America, would include sea lions, a Legoland, submarine rides and a ski slope.

Worldwide Octopus Uprising Continues With Aquarium Near-Escape

I guess they are trying to revolt... ;)
The beaked and eight-tentacled monsters with which we enjoy a tenuously shared existence on this Earth are no longer content to sit placidly in their tanks and their oceans. Cephalopods the world over are rising up and out of the water, from Australia to the Pacific Northwest, and no land-dweller is safe.
