Powerful 
What could Will Ferrell and Beyoncé possibly be doing in the same video? Sending one hell of an important message.

Enjoy the books. No so much the TV show. Really like these Charlie Brown panels.

A great story that +Ricky Gervais might enjoy.
 
Inspiring Chinese Woman Travels 1,500 Miles to Rescue 100 Dogs from a Dog-Meat Festival

Xiaoyun Yang, a retired teacher in China, has emerged as a hero to dog lovers everywhere after she traveled more than 1,500 miles and spent over $1,100 in order to save 100 dogs from being slaughtered and eaten during the controversial dog-meat festival in the southern city of Yulin.

The annual festival, during which as many as 10,000 dogs are killed in order to celebrate the summer solstice, has attracted fierce opposition from the international community, celebrities, and local activists in China. While meat consumption may differ from country to country depending on cultural practices, activists are largely taking issue with how the dogs are procured, treated, and slaughtered. Many dogs killed for meat are family pets stolen from homes, or are strays captured on the street. They are often crammed tightly in cages, increasing the risk of spreading diseases. Finally, many of the slaughtering methods—such as being boiled alive or beaten to death—are considered to be unnecessarily cruel and inhumane.

Yang is one of many Chinese activists who crossed long distances in order to save as many dogs as possible from certain death in Yulin. The 65-year-old has a long history of rescuing animals, stemming from a pivotal day in 1995 when she jumped into a river to save a drowning kitten who had been tossed into the water by its owners. Since then, Yang has taken in countless animals to her animal shelter called "Common Home." The shelter, located in the Dongli District of Tianjin, houses more than 200 cats and 1,500 dogs, many of whom need medical attention. With the help of a few volunteers, Yang works from 5AM to 10PM each day in order to care for the animals. Although she has limited resources, the selfless animal lover has never failed to feed her furry friends steamed corn bread—all she can afford—twice a day, plus special treats on the weekend.

I've enjoyed DVLB over the years. I don't get to go in as much as I would like anymore. Their no plug-in for your computer is annoying but I understand their logic with them being located near WLU.

The King Street location for NewTex is just excellent. Great service. Tailoring and cleaning is second to none. I take all of my shirts and pants there for laundering. They are also great with delicate items. I highly recommend them.

Great menu and food you can rely on. They never have any trouble with big parties who just wander in from the street.

As others have mentioned this is not a four star hotel. The staff is good and very courteous. We ate in the restaurant one night and received excellent service. The food was also good quality. I will return to this hotel if I get the chance.
