    Man Who Invented Labradoodle Breed Now Regrets It, Says He Opened 'Pandora's Box' Of Problems For The Breed

    Wally Conron sparked something of an animal revolution in the 1980s when he bred a Labrador with a poodle, creating the labradoodle. Now, Conron said he regrets creating the breed that has become one of the most popular in the United States.

    The New York Post uncovered an interview with Conron where he expresses guilt over creating the fluffy breed. The dogs became so popular that the breed grew unhealthy and unscrupulous breeders valued money over the wellbeing of their dogs, Conron lamented.

    “I opened a Pandora’s box, that’s what I did,” Conron said. “So many people are just breeding for the money. So many of these dogs have physical problems, and a lot of them are just crazy.”

    an ohio strip club lost its license for food stamp fraud

    An Ohio strip club has lost its liquor license after undercover cops confirmed that the business was taking food stamp benefits in exchange for drugs and lap dances.

    As WCMH-TV (Columbus) reports, undercover police officers spent months investigating chicanery at Sharkey’s Bar in Dayton. Using food stamp benefits instead of cash, the cops determined that they were able to pay for lap dances with the electronic benefits intended for poor families to buy food. What’s more, authorities were also able to buy drugs with the benefits. Specifically, undercover cops paid for heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, cocaine, methamphetamines – just over $2,000 worth – with food stamps.

    Agent-in-Charge Michelle Thourot tells The Dayton Daily News that the strip club was a haven for drug trafficking.

    Despite having an offer to play at Temple University, 18-year-old Washington, D.C. running back Jamal Speaks currently won’t be able to play for his alternative high school, and it’s not because of his grades, injuries, or any of the other factors that typically prevent high school players from taking the field.

    Emergency medical professionals attended to Catherine, who the police said “was very disoriented, did not know where she was [or] her own name, and spoke in gibberish.”

    A California judge has ruled that a 5-year-old girl from Santa Rosa can take cannabis oil while at her public kindergarten.

    Justin Schneider was convicted of strangling and sexually assaulting a woman he gave a ride to in his car, and the Alaska air traffic controller will get off with no time in jail in a controversial sentencing.

He was accused of picking up a woman at a gas station to give her a ride, then driving to a remote area and telling her he had to get out to get something from another car. As she stepped out of the vehicle, Schneider tackled her and began to strangle the woman, KTVA reported.

    “She said she could not fight him off, he was too heavy and had her down being choked to death,” APD Detective Brett Sarber. “(The victim) said she lost consciousness, thinking she was going to die.”

    Nike Has Added $6 Billion In Market Value Since Launching Colin Kaepernick Ad Campaign

    Nike attracted some big controversy with its ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, and now the company is reaping even bigger rewards.

    A new report from CBS News notes that the company’s market value has risen by $6 billion after launching the campaign that features the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. Kaepernick became a polarizing figure after taking a knee during the national anthem in protest of police brutality against minorities, and his supporters believe that he was blacklisted from the league due to his political views.

    But Nike decided to make Kaepernick the face of its “Just Do It” campaign, one that generated controversy and led to some boycotts from conservatives.

    That has not been enough to hurt the company, and in fact Nike’s stock has seen a sharp rise since the Kaepernick campaign started.

    Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Married

    Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber’s engagement came as something of a surprise, which caused some to speculate whether the couple was planning a “shotgun wedding” because Hailey was pregnant.

    “Justin is amazing with kids and can’t wait to be a dad,” an article in In Touch Weekly, which also alleges that Baldwin is currently carrying Bieber’s child.

    But celebrity rumor watchdog Gossip Cop has checked out the story and they report that all articles which assert that the model/television personality is expecting are false.

    As Gossip Cop notes, the article in In Touch is basing its premise on the fact the Bieber was recently seen picking up a marriage license and that he and Baldwin recently went to a medical appointment.

    But, their investigations revealed that the appointment was for Bieber and was related to his eye health.

    It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly where the Bill Cosby case went from another celebrity trial to one of the largest scandals of the decade.

    As one of the catalysts for “MeToo,” the case has dipped in and out of the public eye over the past few years. For many, the development from accusations, to arrest and trial is a great success. Many women don’t see their assailants come to justice, yet a prominent celebrity has been found guilty. Supporters of the movement hope that the Cosby case will shed light on sexual assault and its prevalence in Hollywood.

    As Cosby’s sentencing draws near, many are wondering what the outcome will be. His fate lies in the hands of Judge Steven T. O’Neill, and his ruling has the power to put Cosby in a jail cell — possibly for the rest of his life. Cosby could also be designated a “sexually violent predator,” a title that holds much weight.

    A student editor who retweeted the seemingly innocent question, “Is it a crime to say women don’t have penises?” Has had his world turned upside down.

    The Daily Mail reports that Angelos Sofocleous, who is a student at a prestigious British university, retweeted an article by the political magazine The Spectator with the headline, “Is it a crime to say women don’t have penises?”

    The 24-year-old from Cyprus also added the kicker, “RT if women don’t have penises.”

    The postgraduate philosophy and psychology student who was an assistant editor at Durham University’s philosophy journal Critique at the time of the tweet was ill-prepared for the barrage of abuse that would answer his light-hearted social media antics.

    Fellow students formed a line to brand the tweet as “transphobic” and demanded justice.

    Australian Authorities Kill Four Tiger Sharks After Last Week's Attacks In Whitsundays

    Four tiger sharks were recently killed off the coast of North Queensland, about one week after the hospitalization of a 46-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl due to separate shark mauling incidents at a Great Barrier Reef tourist location.

    According to ABC News Australia, the sharks captured in drumlines and killed earlier in the week included one that measured 12 feet (3.7 meters) in length, making it the largest of the four that were deemed a “serious threat” to people swimming in the area. A Queensland Fisheries representative was not able to confirm if the sharks were responsible for last week’s attacks on 46-year-old Justine Barwick and 12-year-old Hannah Papps in the Whitsunday Islands.

    “This shark, like the others, would pose a serious threat to people swimming in the Cid Harbour waters,” the spokesman said, referring to the 12-foot-long tiger shark.

    “The intention is to remove large, dangerous sharks from the area and reduce the risk to people.”

    Good Samaritan Tammie Hedges, Who Took In Pets During Hurricane Florence, Arrested For Caring For The Animals

    Tammie Hedges decided to stay in her North Carolina home as Hurricane Florence passed through, but couldn’t bear to see her neighborhood pets go through the same.

    So the Wayne Count resident took in more than two dozen animals — 17 cats and 10 dogs — for pet owners who were unable to take the animals with them as they evacuated. Now, Hedges has been arrested for her act of kindness.

    As the USA Today noted, Hedges owns an animal rescue center called Crazy’s Claws N Paws and has been working to convert a warehouse into a proper animal shelter. Though the center has not yet met the requirements to legally serve as an animal shelter, Hedges figured it was better than risking the animals being killed in the hurricane.

    “Our mission was to save as many animals from the flood that we could,” Hedges told USA Today. “We went through Hurricane Matthew and it was horrible. There were many preventable deaths.”

    The “Baby Trump” balloon that flew over London during Trump’s U.K. visit earlier this year turned up at a Florida rally to mark the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria, WPTV (West Palm Beach) is reporting.

    On Saturday, an unknown number of protesters marked the anniversary of the devastating hurricane, and in particular its effects on Puerto Rico, with at a rally in southeastern Florida. Attendees at first drove their cars in circles around Donald Trump’s nearby Mar-a-Lago resort, waving Puerto Rican flags and honking their horns (Donald Trump was not there at the time). From there, they drove to a nearby park for a rally, where they were greeted by the balloon.

    The rally was intended to highlight the Trump administration’s failures in its response to Hurricane Maria. The devastating storm knocked out power to the entire island, and some places were without electricity for months afterwards.
