Animals on the street, especially the showier breeds that require regular hygienic care, lead very difficult lives. Here are som examples what a difference a little TLC can make.
1 – Rasta
This poor fella is barely recognisable now from the matted mess that was rescue in Montreal, Canada.
2 – Miley
Miley was found living in a heap of garbage, nursing severe injuries, and barely able to work. Thankfully things ar enow very different.
3 – Kenzi
Kenzi was a victim of abuse and neglect, and it took the exact opposite to turn her life around.
4 – Ellen
The fur on Ellen’s legs was so heavy that it was starting to rip out at the root. 2 pounds of it was shaved away. Now this 2-year-old girl is ready for her new life to begin.
5 – Dolly
Dolly was spotted eating out of a rubbish bin and thanks to Hope For Paws she is healthy and happy again.
6 – Theo
Theo spent over a year on the streets before being rescued.

A hearing that will give Apple the stage to argue if Samsung should be banned from selling some of its Android smartphones in the U.S. has been pushed back until December.
Judge Lucy Koh, who has been presiding over the Apple vs. Samsung patent infringement case, has moved the hearing from Sept. 20 to Dec. 6.
The news comes less than a week after a jury awarded Apple more than $1 billion in damages for patent infringements, with a looming possibility that several Samsung devices might be banned from the U.S.
Another hearing, which will address Samsung’s efforts to lift the sales ban on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, is still set for Sept. 20.
Although Samsung was found guilty of infringement related to 28 devices, many of which are no longer sold in the U.S., Apple said in a filing that it “has tailored this list to address a portion of the immediate, ongoing, irreparable harm that Apple is suffering.”
The tailored list names eight devices: the Galaxy S 4G, AT&T Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
Samsung has since issued a statement saying that the ruling will “lead to fewer choices, less innovation and potentially higher prices” and will be “a loss for the American consumer.”
Do you think there will or should be a ban on Samsung smartphone sales in the U.S.? What do you think a ban would do to the mobile market?

British national treasure and wildlife enthusiast David Attenborough has admitted that he is saddened by the results of the EU Referendum – though not for the reasons you think.
In true Attenborough form, he really is just thinking of the animals.
Sir David, aged 90, was not vocal about which wayhe would votebefore the referendum. But after the results were released, he revealed to the Guardian that he was saddened by the potential impact on wildlife.
That is sad. Swallows arent members of the union, and migrant birds and so on, he said.
One just hopes that collaboration on these issues, conservation issues, will transcend political divisions,
Environmentalists have warnedthat Brexit could threaten green regulations guaranteed by EU laws.
In particular, Davidsaid he hoped that the Birds and Habitats Directive – which protects all birds, their eggs, nests and habitats against hunting and other dangers – would stay in UK law.
I hope so, and I hope it may be possible for us to do so, he said.
Remain campaigners had warned leaving the EU would harm the environment,Green Party MP Caroline Lucas described the vote as a climate referendum.
And here, for your viewing pleasure, our all time favourite Attenborough moment:

Suicide Squad hits cinemas in early August and what everyone wants to know is “can it live up to the hype?” The trailers have been brilliant, the cast is great, DC surely wouldn’t cock up two times in a year, would they?
But never mind that, one of the things that has a lot of people excited for the film has to be Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. She’s charismatic, crazy, fun, dangerous and, with the risk of sounding like a lechy old man, she’s hot.
So it makes sense that Warner Bros are already planning a spinoff Harley Quinn film.
The likelihood, though, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is that it won’t be a solo film and Quinn could feature with people likeBatgirl and the Birds of Prey, a group ofheroes like Black Canary, Huntress, Oracle and Lady Blackhawk.
Harley also had romantic relations with Poison Ivy and Catwoman and was in a trio with them called the Gotham City Sirens so there’s a chance we could see them appear. Lets just hope that if Poison Ivy does appear, they do the costume properly and not like that terrible Uma Thurman thing…
What do you think? Would you be happy to see this in the making? Let us know in the comments!

In what must have been a particularly strange day, a local councillor buried his dead cat, only to have it turn up in his kitchen a couple of hours later.
(And no, this isn’t the start of some felinezombie apocalypse).
The story started as Matt Strong took to Twitter to share the sad news that his cat, Gus, had been killed in a hit and run accident:
But, as Matt would soon learn, the cat killed wasn’t Gus. Gus, along with his brother Ralph, wandered home, into thekitchen, just a couple of hours afterMatt had‘buried him’.
Probablythrilled that his cat was alive, and not buried in the garden, Matt did have one problem. As he pointed out on his Facebook page:
“Unfortunately this means I have someone’s dead cat buried in my garden.”
Pretty nobly, Matt decided that the cat’s body belonged with its owners, and so just a couple of hours after he had buriedit, he found himself digging up the grave, and taking the cat to a local vet.
This strange story has a happy ending for Gus and Matt, but our thoughts are with the family whose pet was killed today.

The guys out of The Inbetweeners hosted a Q&A session over Facebook in anticipation of their new film releasing on August 6th.
People were allowed to ask anything and so we got pretty much what we expected.

It looks certain: The long-rumored iPad Mini — the smaller-screen variant of Apple’s category-defining iPad — will be unveiled on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Apple sent out invitations to the press earlier today for an event because it had “a little more to show you.”
If that wasn’t enough, there have been no end to rumors and supposed leaks about the still-unofficial device. Discussion about a pint-size Apple tablet predates even the original iPad unveiling, but the reports have reached a fever pitch in the last couple of months. Below is a timeline, created by GimmiTech, of the most prevalent rumors about the iPad Mini in 2012, in graphical form.
Apple’s Asian suppliers have reportedly geared up production for the device, and at least one credible photo of a smaller iPad has circulated. On top of that, 9to5 Mac posted a screencap of what looks like a retail inventory that shows 24 iPad Mini models, supposedly showing it will come in three capacities.
Regardless, the move into the small-screen tablet market sees Apple play the follower to pioneers in the space, such as Amazon and Samsung. Google even shook things up earlier this year with its entry, the Nexus 7.
What features will the iPad Mini have, do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a so-called “bio-bot,” a 3D printed, 7-mm long biological machine. Made with hydrogel and rat heart cells, it can walk on its own. The project aims to imitate nature to create more efficient robots that have a variety of applications.
“The idea is that, by being able to design with biological structures, we can harness the power of cells and nature to address challenges facing society,” said Rashid Bashir, the project’s lead researcher. “As engineers, we’ve always built things with hard materials, materials that are very predictable. Yet there are a lot of applications where nature solves a problem in such an elegant way. Can we replicate some of that if we can understand how to put things together with cells?”
The robot has a long thin leg covered with rat heart cells, that rests on another rigid supporting leg. To move, the heart cells beat, causing the leg to pulse, which in turn springs the rest of the body forward. This technology can potentially be applied to medical sensors and toxin clean ups.
Check out the video, above, to see the bio-bot in action.
