If you are eating, or if you're within an hour or two of eating, stop right now. Stop. Leave the tab open, and come back later to watch a tiny mammal dissolved into a mushy goo. Okay, well, I warned you. The back story is this: Ronald Ball innocently popped open a can of Mountain Dew, ready for some sugary refreshment, when he noticed something sloshing around in the can. On closer inspection, Ball claims to have found the carcass of a mouse in t...

"If you were the CEO of a company that was caught doing something really bad, would you admit that you wish you could do even more of it? Because that’s what Nestle’s CEO just did.

Recently, nearly 200,000 CREDO activists joined together to tell the U.S Forest Service to stop Nestle from pumping water out of a national forest in drought-stricken California. That helped put a spotlight on Nestle and launched a round of intense media scrutiny. But instead of deciding to do the right thing, as other companies like Starbucks1 have done in the face of the drought, Nestle’s CEO decided to dig in and double down. When questioned in a recent radio interview about whether they would consider halting their water extraction, Nestle CEO Tim Brown stated: “Absolutely not. In fact, if I could increase it, I would.”2

Apparently, Nestle’s CEO has spent so much time focusing on driving up Nestle’s profits at any cost that he’s apparently lost any sense of corporate responsibility when it comes to bottling water. So this time we need to up the pressure even more by sending a message directly to Nestle.

Tell Nestle CEO Tim Brown: Exercise some corporate responsibility and end your water profiteering in drought-stricken California..."

Nestle’s CEO has doubled down on his company’s irresponsible water profiteering in drought-stricken California, blaming consumers and stating that he wishes Nestle could bottle even MORE water. Tell Nestle to end the spin and profiteering.

Talk about a viral-worthy video… this is just amazing! Street performer and beat-boxer Power Beat was doing his thing on the streets of Brussels, when an old woman and her dog happened to pass by.

You guys have to check out this incredible Star Wars fan theory that will change the way that you see Star Wars and the Death Star. It's seriously a theory that might just blow your mind. It basically speculates that Death Star was actually built in advance to stop the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Check it out. Source: tickld Via: GeekxGirls

Fairly interesting theory & would fit if you used the Extended Universe canon. Even that aside the author was right in 1 aspect regardless; the Republic was going to fall regardless. The only thing Palpatine did was hurry things up & use it to his advantage.

Monarch butterflies are paying an enormous price for the overuse of herbicides like Monsanto's Roundup and others that use the toxic chemical glyphosate. In just two decades of skyrocketing glyphosate use, ...
