For a month the UK's Ecology building society fought to save a 250-year-old lime tree overhanging the society's grounds. But it took contractors only five minutes to destroy that 100-foot-tall tree - to pave the way for an Aldi super market.

Domestic abuse and domestic murder rates have dropped steeply nationwide. But not in South Carolina, which has the highest rate of male on female murders in the country - 300 in just one decade!

Pituitary.org says that 1 in 5 people suffer from pituitary dysfunction - even more so if you have suffered any kind of jolt to the head, as have many war veterans. Screening for this condition will certainly save lives and quality of life for many vets.

Since release of the film, "Blackfish," there has been an increased worldwide outcry over the capture of Orcas. But that hasn't stopped Russia from taking two from the wild in the last weeks. Russia and every country must ban this cruelty now!

Susan
- 50 days ago - thepetitionsite.com
Although ESPN panelist Stephen A. Smith finally made a heartfelt apology over his statement insinuating woman might provoke beatings, it took him a while to get it. It's reflective of a tolerance for domestic abuse in sports that ESPN needs to address

Last week a fracking chemical fire and spill in Monroe County, OH killed 70,000 fish. But Halliburton took 5 days to disclose details about the chemicals it uses. The EPA must step in now and ensure these chemicals are no longer kept secret!

Results of health studies on men don't necessarily tell us how drugs and medical devices will help or harm women. But for years women have been, essentially, left out these clinical trials - and it is harming them!

A man with tumors in his brain, lungs, liver and bones required a recent hospital stay to stabilize his breathing. But his insurance company - Anthem Blue Cross- at first refused to pay for it - until the media got involved.

A group of mothers recently blitzed EPA with concerns about Roundup residue found in breast milk. Despite these and other serious health concerns, the US Dept of Ag doesn't routinely test foods for Roundup residue as it does for other toxic chemicals.
