The barrier around a gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo was not in compliance with regulations when a 3-year-old boy fell into the enclosure in May, according to a federal investigation. Zoo officials questioned the finding by pointing out the barrier passed muster with federal authorities about a month before the boy’s fall. “In its 38-year history, the barrier system at Gorilla World has always been found compliant during USDA inspections,” a statement from the zoo said. A member of an animal response team fatally shot a Western lowland gorilla named Harambe on May 28 after determining that the ape posed an imminent threat to the child. The animal’s death unleashed a public fury that was directed both at the child’s mother and at the zoo for its decision to use lethal force. Inspectors from the U.S.
One of the several types of signs that can be found on subways, in airports, and in public places in the United States, urging civilians to “report suspicious activity.” Photo courtesy of Mass.Gov Last July, just four days after the attacks on Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, I was about to leave Boston Logan Airport for a trip overseas with a layover in Istanbul. With the recent airport attack and the host of attacks that had occurred over the preceding months, I was a bit uneasy and a lot more aware of my surroundings. While waiting for my flight at Logan Airport, I kept hearing announcements about a security awareness program called SAFE (Security Awareness for Everyone), which urges passengers to report any suspicious behavior.

The Chicago Sun-Times editorial board on Sunday shamed GOP leaders for their response to the graphic video of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump boasting about sexual assault , writing that not only should Trump drop out of the race, but all Republicans with “a shred of self-respect” should dump him too. “Every Republican Party leader or elected official who has a shred of self-respect should drop him cold. We question the moral fiber of anyone who does not,” the scathing editorial reads

Many painful emotional issues face family members and friends when a loved one becomes terminally ill. These include communicating the diagnosis to others; overcoming denial that the person is, in fact, near death; feeling the need to “be strong” and hide their sadness for the benefit of the patient and others; dealing with anticipatory grief; handling the physical and emotional exhaustion of intensive caregiving; and deciding when or whether to engage hospice care services

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill. Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks. Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

“Ring out the bells again Like we did when spring began Wake me up when September ends” -Billy Joe Armstrong (Green Day) With the tsunami of media leading into the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina on Saturday, it seems impossible that an author could come up with a new, insightful and passionate history of the 10 years after the hurricane that is not a rehash of something that has been already said. Gary Rivlin made the impossible happen. His book Katrina: After the Flood will be the historic book of record for anyone studying that time period or those who want to learn the politics of rationing resources when a region is starting all over again
We’re going to begin today with a wrapup of the week that was in the presidential campaigns, and as befitting his status as the Republican frontrunner, we’re going to start with Donald Trump (if you’re sick of hearing about Trump, just skip down eight or ten paragraphs and continue reading). Trump is helicoptering in to the Iowa State Fair today, so perhaps he’ll have said something even more outrageous by the time you read this. Hey, it’s a pretty safe bet, at this point.
There is a side to our most recent social crisis that seems to have escaped much attention from the press or those shouting “Black Lives Matter!” That aspect is a rather nerdy but fundamental matter of technology and the role that it plays in justice. We are all used to Hollywood’s hand-wringing assumption that tech only serves the powerful. But recent history suggests exactly the opposite.
Americans really love animals. There is nothing that will make the heart of an American overflow with feelings of love like the sight of a puppy or a kitten. Animals have the power to transform people who are heartless towards other human beings into tolerant saints, and to change otherwise selfish, flighty people who can barely sustain a relationship for longer than a month into affectionate, generous caregivers.

By Steve Bittenbender March 3 (Reuters) – An Ohio gay rights activist was charged early Tuesday with falsely claiming he had been kidnapped and his family was in danger, setting off a police search in the Cincinnati area, authorities said.

By Emily Le Coz (Reuters) – A Mississippi pastor brought a horse in a wedding dress to stand with him outside a federal courthouse on Friday in Jackson to protest a federal judge’s ruling, currently on hold, to overturn the socially conservative state’s ban on gay marriage.
