    A disturbing livestreamed video went viral this week after a former Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter volunteer claimed she once killed a dog as retaliation against the dog's owner. Simone Scott, who goes by the online names "Aqualadora" and "AqualaGamer," smiles as she talks to fellow Twitch streamers about euthanizing the 4-year-old dog. "I once killed someone's dog on purpose. But no one knew because I was a professional," she says. The UC Santa Cruz graduate claims she was working as a veterinary tech at the time, and said the owner was a "really really bad person." "The dog was...

    On a sunny August Friday, people stream past the ornate, Art Deco US Post Office building in Manhattan's East Village, where its forlorn and faded "Fallout Shelter" plaque is an ominous reminder, however distant, of today's nuclear threat. The yellow and white metal sign on the Cooper Station Post Office is one of perhaps thousands that can be found scattered throughout the city -- largely forgotten relics of the days when the threat of annihilation via a Soviet nuclear attack seemed like a very real and terrifying proposition. But as the war of words between US President Donald Trump and...

Opened this week, it marks the first Muslim-operated transitional housing shelter in Massachusetts, according to Malika MacDonald-Rushdan, ICNA Relief’s state field office director. Amal means “hope” in Arabic, MacDonald-Rushdan explained. The door’s vibrant purple color signifies that feeling.

    Oscar winners, sports stars and Bill Gates are building lavish bunkers — with amenities ranging from a swimming pool to a bowling alley — as global anxiety fuels sales and owners "could be the next Adam and Eve."SNIP Adds Mike Peters, owner of Utah-based Ultimate Bunker, which builds high-end versions in California, Texas and Minnesota: "People are going for luxury [to] live underground because they see the future is going to be rough. Everyone I've talked to thinks we are doomed, no matter who is elected."

    Oregon women seeking shelter from homelessness or abusive men are being forced to share sleeping and bathroom facilities with men who “self-identify” as a woman. State anti-discrimination laws in that state require these women’s shelters to take in men who “self-identify” as a woman, a sheltered woman reported. Malka Davis was trying to find shelter, like many other women, from living on the streets after running out of options, she wrote in an opinion piece in The Oregonian. While returning to the shelter one day, Davis noticed several of her female shelter companions in distress. She said one woman had...

    This is part 1 of a series of episodes I am doing on the Seattle homeless crisis. It illustrates perfectly the problems with big government, the insanity of liberals and the great lengths these red diaper doper baby liberal degenerates will go to get a free lunch off the backs of those who earn their lunch by their own sweat and tears. This first episode is a prologue of sorts, at focus is the failure of Olympia and city hall in particular a taxpayer funded program, The committee to end homelessness in King county that has gotten little attention but...

    Onlookers applauded as a suspected arson fire destroyed a planned refugee shelter in eastern Germany, police said Sunday. The roof of the former hotel Bautzen, in the eastern state of Saxony, was undergoing renovation when a fire broke out overnight. Police said that no one was injured but reported that bystanders “commented with derogatory remarks” and showed “unashamed joy” as firefighters struggled to subdue the flames. Police forces ordered three people to leave the scene for obstructing emergency services and detained two “intoxicated 20-year-old locals” for ignoring the order. Investigators believe the fire was caused by arson and are not...

    The North Koreans appear to have successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb in January 2016 and promise more excitement to come. Immediately after the bang the government news agency bragged that the nation was now "capable of wiping out the whole territory of the U.S. all at once."This only slightly distracted mainstream politicos in other nations. North Korea might have gotten a bigger, badder reaction had it elected instead to drive steamrollers over groups of homosexuals or Muslims or women. At least Bernie Sanders, though closer in kinship to the North Korean brand of monarchical socialism than to, say, Ronald Reagan, noticed the bomb. World leaders only pause long...

    The city of Zurich plans to house asylum seekers in 62 chipboard huts to replace Ikea refugee shelters that it rejected last week after they failed a fire test. The chipboard structures will be assembled by employees of a local company between now and New Year's Day to house up to 250 people, the city announced on Tuesday. Last Friday, Zurich city councillor Raphael Golta unveiled a large hall filled with dozens of Ikea ready-to-assemble Ikea shelters. But just a few hours later authorities were forced to announce that the partly plastic shelters did not live up to Swiss fire...

    If you're partial to black and white "tuxedo" cats, an animal shelter in Novato, Calif., would like to talk. It seems someone has dropped off more than 100 of the cats over the last 18 months. The last dropoff occurred Monday, when a car pulled up to the Marin Humane Society and left behind three boxes with 24 cats. It was the fourth such occurrence in the last 18 months. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that all the cats, which range in age from kitten to full-grown, appeared to be in good health, with no fleas or diseases. The unidentified...

    The crowd of 500 included grandmothers and small children, Chinese immigrants and the president of a local Republican club, all shouting that the mayor had trampled their rights. The source of their anger? The 180 homeless families the city had moved into the defunct Pan American Hotel in Elmhurst, Queens. The residents felt nervous around the new arrivals, they said. There were reports of shoplifting from the Good Fortune Supermarket, public urination and panhandling – all things, they said, that had been unheard-of in their neighborhood until now. During the protest on Tuesday night, one of the organizers spoke through...

    An Englewood women's shelter is without heat this week due to a long overdue bill. Some of the women and children who live in a 13-unit building called Clara's Place are using extra blankets or keeping boiled water on their stoves to keep warm this week, during which temperatures have dropped overnight to around freezing, said Darlene Morman, 53, who said she moved to her two-bedroom unit that she shares with her 8-year-old niece and a roommate four months ago. The founder and director of the shelter, Clara Kirk, who oversees two shelters that take in and provide meals for...

    Imagine if it were possible to build your own home, in this day and age, for less than $35,000. Or to cut up some timber and piece your new home together like a giant jigsaw puzzle. What if you could create, with your own hands, a home that collects its own rainwater and generates its own power, so you never have to pay a bill again? As far-fetched as it sounds, if you can't afford to buy a house, then designing and building your own may be more viable than you assumed. Today, upcoming architects and designers are coming up...
