For example, Dr. Bonnie Beaver , a professor at Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine and Executive Director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, explains, Dogs know to comfort people by sniffing out some cancers, such as on the breath of a lung cancer patient. Numerous animals also grieve and mourn the loss of their kind, and others will even perform what we consider death rituals . Elephants often linger over the bones of their kind, in some cases even for multiple days , according to one study, crows and ravens will gather around the dead but won't touch them, and orcas and dolphins will bring dead calves to the surface of the sea in a last-ditch effort to save them. Chimpanzees also perform elaborate death rituals, as they will continue to groom the bodies of their dead infants in order to delay the inevitable decay.

So right now, Goodenough’s technology is powering your smartphone, laptop, electric toothbrush, Tesla and any other rechargeable electronic thing you own. Lots of inventors claim they’re working on breakthrough types of batteries. Goodenough is the only one who can also say he’s done it before. End of Gas-Powered Cars? Goodenough’s new battery can store three times more energy than a comparable lithium-ion battery, according to the very serious Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). The new battery also solves some other lithium-ion troubles. Like, it wont catch fire, so a hoverboard wont suddenly melt your kid’s Vans as she scoots across the playground. The IEEE also reports that Goodenough’s batteries seem to be able to soak up in minutes as much charge as a lithium-ion battery gets in hours. Battery technology may not make you swoon, but it is the missing link in getting the planet off carbon-based energy.

With our strategy, we have decided that the fully electric drivetrain will be integrated into our core brands, with an all-electric Mini in 2019, and an all-electric BMW X3 in 2020, said a BMW representative. BMW is also adding its i3 to the LAPD, with the famous police department buying a fleet of 100 i3s. Admittedly, these BMW i3 police cars will be used in smaller communities and won't be used as chase cars. Although, that would be a hilarious police chase to watch on TV. Tesla is trying to get its manufacturing capabilities up so that it can produce up to 800,000 cars per year in 2018. This is a bit ambitious, considering the Silicon Valley-based brand has only been able to do about 100,000 per year and struggles to do that. So with BMW's also ambitious, but more realistic, goals of drastically increasing its EV sales, Tesla and its shareholders might start to get a bit antsy about its own manufacturing.

If were going to vote against a nominee because they wont tell us the things that we want to hear about issues important to us, then the whole nominating process has become a joke, Graham said, referencing how Gorsuch has declined to comment on specific cases. I think politics has changed. And I think it has changed in a fashion that we should all be ashamed of as senators. Other Republicans said that Gorsuch's qualifications show that Democrats' opposition to him means they're the unreasonable party. Why anybody in this body would vote against you Ill never understand, Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah told Gorsuch. Admittedly youre of a different political persuasion perhaps than some of my friends on the other side, but Ive supported people who are totally different than my beliefs.

Sen. Patrick Leahy's attempt to defend Roe v. Wade won applause from pro-life activists on Wednesday, who said the anecdote he shared highlighted how safety laws would protect patients. Sen. Leahy (D., Vt.) recounted his experience prosecuting a Nazi-trained doctor who crossed the Canadian border to perform illegal abortions in Vermont to the Judiciary Committee during the third day of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch's confirmation hearing. Leahy called the incident representative of the "dark days" before the Supreme Court struck down state laws against abortion in the landmark case. "She was trained to do these abortions working for the SS at Auschwitz so she could abort the women prisoners that they had impregnated so that they could keep on using the women that way before they put them in the gas chambers," Leahy said . Pro-life groups welcomed the remarks, saying Leahy had inadvertently highlighted the reason lawmakers have sought to increase safety regulations and health inspections at facilities that provide abortions.
