September 11, 2017 2:42 pm  | Comments: 0 | Views: 51795
Hurricane Irma paid a brutal visit to Florida on Sunday and Monday after thrashing several Caribbean islands for much of last week. The storm, once a fierce and record-breaking Category 5, had downgraded to a tropical storm Monday afternoon and was gradually weakening as it moved over northern Florida toward Georgia. As the storm’s final gusts dissipate, the southern part of Florida is now reckoning with flotsam and flooding. The extent of the wreckage is still unclear, yet early images emerging from the state show significant flooding and damage to buildings, vehicles, boats, and trees in the Florida Keys, Everglades City, Miami, Naples, and small towns in between. These photos offer a glimpse of the destruction Irma has wrought in the state.

September 7, 2017 12:25 pm  | Comments: 2 | Views: 65167
Anyone who owns a pet knows that animals have no hesitation when it comes to trying to eat random objects they find lying around the house.

Because animals don’t have the same metabolisms as humans, a compound that human bodies can easily break down may prove to be lethal in a smaller animal at the same dose. Here, we will explore several foods and plants that you may not realize can be potential medical dangers for your pet if consumed.

After steamrolling several Caribbean islands as a category 5 storm on Wednesday, Hurricane Irma — one of the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean — continues to churn on what appears to be a direct course toward the Bahamas and then South Florida.

The US is vast: 3.797 million square miles to be exact. Yet when it comes to choosing a vacation, we often limit ourselves to a tiny fraction of the country.

But for those prepared to go off the beaten track, there are a lot of lesser-known places that are well worth a visit, especially if you’re looking to ditch the crowds. Here is a selection of some favorite underrated travel destinations — from cities to day trips and national parks, these are all places that deserve a bit more attention.
