After finding his brother's dog Copper fall through thin ice into frigid water, a guy named Colin risked his own life to rescue the pup. Unfortunately, the ice couldn't hold Colin either, and he ended up in the water alongside the dog. Colin managed to break through the ice so the two could escape the water, but not before Copper accidentally took off Colin's underwear trying to escape. It was just his way of saying thanks.

Russia's Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu smoothly parried a jibe from UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon from Moscow, Tuesday, bearing his claws with subtly over the British diplomat’s comments about Russia’s involvement in Libya. Fallon had stated over the weekend that “We dont need Russia sticking his paws" into the Libyan crisis. Shoigu responded, "They have a lion for their emblem, right? There is an old saying: every lion is a cat, but not every cat is a lion. Let everyone mind their own business. And I do not think that in their zoo there is an animal, which may tell our bear what to do." SOT, Unidentified Student, Moscow State Institute of International Relations, (Russian): "Would you comment on the statement by your British colleague Michael Fallon at the Munich Conference on Russia's actions in Libya. I will quote: "We don't need the bear sticking his paws in".

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has found a signal at the center of the neighboring Andromeda galaxy that could indicate the presence of the mysterious stuff known as dark matter. The gamma-ray signal is similar to one seen by Fermi at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy. Gamma rays are the highest-energy form of light, produced by the universe's most energetic phenomena. They're common in galaxies like the Milky Way because cosmic rays, particles moving near the speed of light, produce gamma rays when they interact with interstellar gas clouds and starlight. Surprisingly, the latest Fermi data shows the gamma rays in Andromeda, also known as M31, are confined to the galaxy's center instead of spread throughout. To explain this unusual distribution, scientists are proposing that the emission may come from several undetermined sources.

I found that the failure happens more frequently with a slight delay before releasing the key. It's not clear what's causing the issue with the keys that suddenly become non-functional, but the butterfly mechanism is sensitive and can be interrupted by something as simple as a bit of dust. In our case, with the machine we had that was experiencing issues with a specific key, the problem cleared up on its own, but other MacBook owners have not been so lucky. One other minor keyboard complaint is an inconsistent feel across keys, with some keys that feel spongier than others or that don't press down consistently. This seems to be related to a problem with the butterfly mechanism which some users report having fixed with a needle or other thin tool, but most people should not try that sort of repair at home. While many of the complaints seem to be focused on the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, some users have also had problems with both the 13-inch model with a Touch Bar and the 13-inch model with no Touch Bar.

Gabbard is the first US legislator since the 1980’s to openly highlight the very real problem of US clandestine services arming and supporting violent internatonal terrorist organizations, particularly those currently operating inside of Syria. Interestingly, Gabbard’s important move to stop international terrorism comes at the exact same time when the outgoing President Obama has pushed his own executive action to lift all restrictions on US arms exports and support to proxyrebel” or terrorist fighting groups operating in Syria and elsewhere. In this context, we can see clearly that there is a moral battle being fought in Washington – between those who oppose terrorism – and those like President Obama and Senator John McCain, who have seen it as ‘useful’ in the pursuit of their own geopolitical objectives, particularly by their open support of terrorist factions in Syria.

Imagine, that was happening on New Year's. They were all, as far as I know from the court records, very much drunk, and I know also from my client, that he was very much drunk. If he, that drunk, was still master of his own senses. That needs to be found out in the court case by the judge." SOT, Michael Schnarch, defence lawyer (German): "My client will say that he forced the woman into sexual intercourse and he will also say that the woman did not give her approval. There is nothing more I can say. She did not fight back; she was so drunk that she could not give her approval. That is also an important point." SOT, Michael Schnarch, defence lawyer (German): "Of course there is no discussion about it: he is feeling sorry. He must feel sorry, etc. A woman has been hurt. This woman will have effects for the rest of her life. And you must feel sorry, this is indescribable.

High octane action movies like John Wick require millions of dollars and thousands of people to make. Well, not for aspiring filmmakers like Redditor Brainlessguy . He made his own John Wick- inspired action scene and it looks like it is straight out of the film. Even though it's only around a minute long, it features lots of shooting, lots of bad guys dying (all played by him) and he made it all. We're not kidding. He did all of it, the filming, the acting, the editing, the sound. He gladly shared how it was done and answered questions in a Reddit post . It's really hard to believe, but as if he anticipated the skepticism, he shows some of the behind-the-scenes, pre-edited footage at the end of the video. It's really just him, shooting and getting shot. Very impressive. Read more... More about Action , John Wick , Youtube , Conversations , and Watercooler

Evan Mawarire does not regret coming back to Zimbabwe , though he risks jail, abduction, torture or being disappeared by government thugs. This is where my family support network is, where my church is, where my roots are, where my life is, the pro-democracy activist tells TIME of his hope for a new liberation struggle in the country. For me the realization is if you don't do something for your own nation, no one else will do it with the same passion you have. Mawarire, 39, turned from evangelical pastor to activist in April 2016, when a video he created criticizing the government of Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe went viral under the hashtag #ThisFlag, provoking a storm of pro-democracy protests and turning him into the face of a movement. Forced into exile last year, he returned in February and was promptly arrested; he now faces a 20-year sentence for charges that include subverting the government and inciting public violence.

Most educators acknowledge that literacy is important, but often the focus is on reading because for a long time that is what achievement tests measured. In the last few years there has been more focus on writing in classrooms and on tests, but many students still have difficulty expressing their ideas on paper. Often students struggle to begin writing, so some teachers have shifted assignments to allow students to write about something they care about, or to provide an authentic audience for written work. While these strategies are important parts of making learning relevant to students, they may not be enough on their own to improve the quality of writing. Practice is important, but how can teachers ensure students are practicing good habits? Nell Scharff Panero taught high school English for 13 years before going back to school to get her Ph.

Coppola's job was to take this unknown movie and adapt it for a US audience. In the 50s and 60s, America and the USSR were locked in their race for the Moon - a competition that was as much about Cold War posturing and national prestige as it was scientific curiosity. And just as US cinema became preoccupied with movies about brave astronauts, such as producer George Pal's Destination Moon, so Soviet filmmakers began making space exploration movies of their own. Often made with lavish budgets and special effects, these movies were told with an attention to detail and (relative) scientific rigour that was relatively rare in US sci-fi cinema before 2001: A Space Odyssey. Set in the near future, The Heavens Call was about humanity's first attempts to reach Mars. Road To The Stars (1958), directed by Pavel Klushantsev, was part documentary, part speculative sci-fi, with its second half imagining what life in space might look like.
