A Silly Dog Refuses to Ride the Escalator Unless His Human Picks Him Up and Carries Him

by Lori Dorn

A post shared by Antônio (@antoniothegolden) on

A wonderfully funny and normally brave dog named Antonio refused to go up the escalator at the Shopping Patio Higienopolis in São Paulo, Brazil unless his human picked him up and carried him like when he was a puppy. Per his accommodating human, it was like “that moment when you think you’re still a baby”.

Antonio going for a different escalator ride in his human’s arms.

Antonio is normally more daring in his adventures such as swimming, shopping, and jumping.

UPDATED: Houston Megachurch Pastor Prepares To Open Church To Flood Victims After Being Shamed Online

UPDATED: Houston Megachurch Pastor Prepares To Open Church To Flood Victims After Being Shamed Online

Houston megachurch pastor and "prosperity gospel" purveyor Joel Osteen wants everyone to know he is praying for Hurricane Harvey's victims. But until he was shamed online, he had no plans to actually open the church doors and welcome the needy in. Now, that has changed.

Earlier today, Osteen announced that he would be partnering with hater Franklin Graham to grift some more bucks to help someone somewhere. It was unclear that any donations would help anyone actually drowning in the middle of Houston, right now.

Some tried to excuse the inexcusable by saying that the area around the church was flooded, or that the church itself was flooded. But it clearly is not, as photographs indicated.

Colorful Animations That Gracefully Visualize the Calls of Amazon Rainforest Birds

by Lori Dorn

“Visual Sounds of the Amazon” is a beautiful video by the talented Australian mixed media artist Andy Thomas, which features colorfully animated, gracefully moving visualizations of the bird sounds he recorded during a 2016 trip to the Amazon Rainforest in and around Presidente Figueiredo, Brazil. This first installment video will be screened at the Render Festival in Lima, Peru, which take place through November 5, 2017.

Last year I took my artwork to the next level by travelling to the Amazon rain forest to collect the sights and sounds of one of the worlds most amazing jungles, with the hope of spreading awareness about its plight.

The video is part of a much larger project for Thomas, who wants to educate the “the public about the deforestation of forests in Brazil…and the consequent deterioration of global warming” through his videos.

So Much for So Little, A 1949 Chuck Jones Cartoon That Promotes the Benefits of Public Healthcare

by Lori Dorn

Local Health Official

In 1949, legendary animator Chuck Jones created “So Much for So Little“, an Oscar-winning government produced animated short that makes the case for public healthcare. This care consisted of doctors, nurses and sanitation personnel who would work together to ensure that infant mortality rates were lowered, ensure proper vaccinations were received and every child had what he or she needed in order to grow up healthy and start a family of their own, all for only three cents a week. The story is told through a baby named John Emerson Jones, Jr. who may have or may not have grown up to have those things.

Before the cartoon ends, however, it returns to John as a baby, reminding the audience that John needs proper healthcare to survive. The cartoon then states that if every American paid just three cents a week, sufficient healthcare could be provided for John and babies everywhere.

by Jessica Fisher

I can't remember when I first discovered potstickers, but I know that as a busy mom with many young and eternally hungry children, having a stash of frozen dumplings in my freezer was a godsend.

It still is. I used to be the one who started the rice cooker, steamed some vegetables, and cooked up a pan of potstickers, but it's now my teens who can handle the task with style. As long as they don't really let them stick to my pot. Ahem.

Potstickers serve as an easy, quick-fix dinner. And while rice and steamed veggies make it a meal, there are lots of easy ways to make delicious dinners starring potstickers.
