Specially trained dogs try to save threatened turtle species

John Rucker of Montana with his dogs at Nachusa Grasslands in Franklin Grove, Illinois looking for ornate box turtles. (FOX NEWS/ MITTI HICKS) The turtles have become endangered because farms have been encroaching on their property.

Upset about the plastic crisis? Stop trying so hard

We make good-faith efforts to help the planet by recycling, but what we really need to do is even simpler Did you ever decide to get off a jammed freeway and take the backroads even though deep down you knew that it wouldnt be any faster? Are you constantly switching to the faster lane on a busy freeway even though you notice that cars sticking to their lanes keep catching up with you? Both are examples of action bias, the phenomenon in which people prefer doing something over doing nothing, even if the likely outcome of the action is worse than the outcome of inaction. Research has shown that actively managed portfolios tend to do worse than passive investments. And …

Most of us pass the time studiously avoiding social contact by staring at our phones, books or a newspaper. Nobody really wants to be that person, do they? But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. Behind the mask, we all hide fascinating stories and you just never know what that human sitting next to you has been through. Sometimes, that person can inspire you, teach you something new, or even become the love of your life.
