Butt Toning Exercises As Good As Squats 

Squats are great for working and toning the glutes but it can sometimes just get a bit repetitive and boring. If you are looking for butt toning exercise apart from squats, give these butt moves designed by Chelsea Dornan, a National Academy of Sports Medicine-certified personal trainer and instructor at Uplift Studios in New York City.

1. Single-Leg Glute Bridge. Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor near your butt and hip-width apart. Keeping your knees in line, extend one leg. On your exhale, squeeze your glutes and push your hips up toward the ceiling as high as you can go. Pause, then lower until your butt hovers right above the floor, and repeat without touching the ground.

2. Hydrants with Leg Extension. Begin on all fours with your knees hip-width apart and your wrists stacked over your shoulders. Lift your left knee toward the ceiling, then extend the left foot straight out to the side. Pause before you bend your knee again, and bring your leg back to starting position. Repeat for 45 to 60 seconds on the left side before you switch to the right.

3. Single Leg Dead Lift. Stand with your feet hip-distance apart and your right foot a few inches in front of your left. The left knee should be slightly bent. Draw your abs in and slowly fold forward, keeping your left foot in line with your spine as you reach toward the floor with both hands. Pause, then return to starting position. Repeat 45 to 60 seconds before switching sides.

I think its really funny when people think that vegans are on a high horse and think they’re better than everyone when in fact its the exact opposite.
Im vegan because I dont think I’m better than animals just because they cant say no.

Dedicated Vet Performs Life-Saving Surgery On A Little Goldfish

"This is the story of a hearty little swimmer named George, whose life is  as priceless as any other.

Last week, George’s guardian brought her beloved fish to veterinarians at Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melbourne, Australia in hopes that they might help save his life. The 10-year-old fish had developed a tumor on his head, and the tumor was making it increasingly difficult for him to swim or feed normally.

Dr. Tristan Rich, who assessed the fish’s condition, told the guardian that he could either put the fish to sleep, or attempt to remove the growth. Performing surgery, especially on fish, can be a risky and costly endeavor, but George’s owner agreed that it was worth it.

"It can be a few hundred dollars, and mostly it’s charged for the standard anesthetic, also depending on the time it takes. The actual procedure is quick and straightforward," Dr. Rich told the Sydney Morning Herald. “[But] it’s quite fiddly, as you can imagine with an 80-gram fish, and you’ve got to make sure you can control any blood loss. He can only lose about half a mil [milliliter].”

While removing the tumor itself takes no small amount of precision, putting the fish under anesthesia and keeping him breathing is a science all its own. Vet staff describe the procedure on their Facebook page:

Dr Tristan Rich, head of Lort Smith’s exotic and wildlife vet team, set up three buckets – one with a knock out dose of anaesthetic, one with a maintenance level of anaesthetic, and one with clean water as the recovery unit.

Once George was asleep, Dr Tristan ran a tube from the maintenance bucket which was being oxygenated, into George’s mouth, so that the water with the maintenance dose of anaesthetic washed over his gills.

Dr Tristan worked quickly to remove the large tumour, although the size of it meant that he had to use a gelatine sponge to control the bleeding during surgery. The size of the wound meant it was difficult to seal, so Dr Tristan put in four sutures then sealed the rest of the wound with tissue glue.

After the 45-minute surgery, George was returned to an oxygen-rich bucket to begin his recovery. Thanks to Dr. Rich’s skill and dedication to saving the life of even the most unlikely of patients, the shiny little fish is back on his fins. The vet says he’s performed such procedures less than a dozen times, but he’s clearly developed an expertise.

“The surgery went swimmingly and George has now returned home with his loving guardian,” says Dr. Rich.”

Just because it seems teacup pigs are coming back and all I see is ~omg cute i want a pig now~, I think this seriously needs to be addressed:
"Teacup" pigs are produced by humans using incredibly cruel methods. The mothers are impregnated before they are fully grown, as…
