  Meet Douglas, a beautiful growing African hippopotamus. He was found abandoned at two weeks old by rescuers with Conservation Lower Zambezi, and he now lives at Chipembele Wildlife Rescue in hopes of growing up safely and learning how to be a wild hippo. Douglas’s hobbies include swimming, splashing, strolling waterside, and sipping from a baby bottle. Oh, and playing with his two best friends, little doggies Molly and Coco. The rambunctious pair of terriers assure that Douglas never has a dull moment, and the trio...

I finally gave it a view this morning, and trust me, I totally realize how silly I must have looked sitting in the office staring intensely at the snowy screen of my computer. But just like all those cross-eyed hours we spent in the...
  "People take our experiences, they take our trauma and they turn it into something trivial or meaningless. They turn it into some kind of joke” explains rape survivor Taylor Malone upon seeing a drink titled “Date Grape Koolaid” at a new local bar, the Daiquiri Factory in Spokane, Washington.
