Anyone Who Makes Their Donkey Smoke Is The Real Ass

An ass-inine video taken June 13 in Zhangye, Gansu Province, shows a man putting a large cigarette into a donkey’s mouth. According to the video description, the supersize cancer stick is actually made out of firewood, not tobacco (not that it’s healthy to smoke a foot-long cigarette of anything). The unnamed man insists the donkey enjoys “smoking,” saying that it calms him down when the animal is in a bad mood. As you might expect, animal experts think what the man is doing to the donkey is a terribly bad idea. Daniella Tessier, who runs Peace Ridge Sanctuary in Penobscot, Maine, said equines are especially sensitive to smoke inhalation and that the lung tissue of horses and donkeys is even more delicate than humans. “It is apparent from reviewing the video that the man has trained the equine to stand and allow this,” Tessier told HuffPost. “Equines can be very astute when it comes to pleasing their guardians. However, if someone followed up down the road, I bet that animal will have died from a serious lung infection or from advanced lung disease. That kind of death, especially without veterinary assistance, will likely be quite painful.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

We investigated the effects of aqueous extract (AE) and methanolic extract (ME) of Helichrysum odoratissimum for reducing CP-induced reproductive toxicity in male rats.MethodsIn addition to a normal control (group 1), drugs or v...

The objective response rate was 8.88% (4/45), and the disease control rate was 88.89% (40/45). The most common grade 3/4 treatment-related AEs were hypertension (12.50%), hand–foot syndrome (6.67%), diarrhea (12.50%), fatigue (6.25%), and proteinuria (14.29%). One drug-related severe AE of thrombocytopenia (21×109/l) occurred 2 months after therapy. Apatinib treatment in our study exhibited objective efficacy in PFS, OS, and manageable toxicity in patients with advanced sarcoma. This result supports future randomized controlled trials to further define apatinib activity in stage IV sarcomas.

As awful for health as they are, having played such a huge role in childhood breakfasts, thoughts of breakfast cereals still conjure up a host of memories. Deep within the haze of my childhood memories, buried beneath recollections of nerdy high school days, a marriage gone sour, and a brother-in-law midlife crisis involving duct tape, three members of the local PTA, and a VW bus, are images of the mornings I sat with my two sisters at our kitchen table in suburban New Jersey, each of us slurping a bowl of Trix, Lucky Charms, or Fruit Loops cereal, still recovering from a late night of Bewitched and Mission Impossible. We ...

The basic backbone of the NHC ligands were prepared in two stepwise reactions: reduction of the commercially available 2-benzoylpyridine, followed by halogenation to yield 2-(chloro(phenyl)methyl)pyridine. Subsequent reactions with ...

We investigated the relationship between ethnicity and patient survival in multi-racial Malaysia. 5-year survival rate was 40.9%. No statistically significant difference was observed in survival between ...

aterina Chlichlia Origanum species are plants rich in volatile oils that are mainly used for culinary purposes. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the biological activities of their essential oils. Origanum onites L. is a plant mainly found in Greece, Turkey, and Sicily, whose oil is rich in carvacrol, a highly bioactive phytochemical. The aim of this study was to analyze the chemical composition of Origanum onites essential oil (OOEO), and investigate its potential anticancer effects in vitro and in vivo. GC/MS analysis identified carvacrol as OOEO’s main constituent. In vitro antiprolifer...
