Dog rescued after surviving nearly a month pinned under rubble from Hurricane Dorian


A dog who survived Hurricane Dorian is being called a "miracle" in the Bahamas. The people who rescued the dog have named him Miracle because he survived underneath rubble for about a month.

Rescuers from Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Loxahatchee Groves in Palm Beach County say they have rescued over 100 dogs since the devastating storm him the Bahamas. They have used a drone to aid their recovery efforts and the technology was integral during this particular rescue.

The rescuers located the dog pinned underneath an air condition and building debris in Marsh Harbor. After comforting him with food, rescuers were able to pull him out of the debris.

The team rushed the pup to their ranch for lifesaving medical treatment. He was emaciated after not eating for nearly a month — but he miraculously survived. So they named him "Miracle."

"What an incredible story that we were able to discover this dog alive after being trapped for so long," Big Dog Ranch Rescue Founder and President Lauree Simmons told CBS Miami. "We are using the latest technology for our recovery teams to locate these animals. In this case, drones played a key role."

Miracle is the 138th dog rescued by Big Dog Ranch Rescue in the Bahamas. The organization is working with the Humane Society on the island to clear shelter space for new dogs. Miracle arrived on Friday, and will stay until his family claims him.

If no one claims Miracle, Big Dog Ranch will work to find him a forever home. The rescue team encourages those who would like to help or adopt to visit BDRR.org for more information.

Always is Helping Keep Girls in School in South Africa

The Always Keeping Girls in School program is inspired by the Always brand purpose (to unleash women and girls confidence so they can be whoever they want to be) and by Procter & Gamble’s commitment to gender equality building a world where everyone sees equal. Around the world, the onset of puberty marks the lowest point in girls’ confidence. In many African communities, stigmas and taboos around menstruation lead to many girls not receiving information about puberty and often being unprepared when they have their first period.

In addition to that, girls who grow up in poverty often cannot afford period protection, which means that they don’t fully participate in school, sports or social life when they have their periods. All these issues can lead to increased school absenteeism, and for some girls even dropping out altogether.

The Always Keeping Girls in School program reaches vulnerable girls with essential puberty and confidence education and donations of pads, so that they can commit to their education and their future. Since 2008, P&G has reached over 200, 000 girls and donated over 13 million pads in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria.

Menstruation-related issues are a gender-based barrier to girls’ education. There are many reasons that children may miss school – but having a period should not be one of them.

Robot cutting hair

You might remember the Flowbee hair cutting vacuum device from commercials back in the late 1980s. We’ve come up with a new concept to disrupt the hair styling market once again, this time through collaborative robots. With Snips by Sawyer barbershops will never be the same. More on that here -
