Rescued Piglet And Kitten Find Peace In One Another

World, meet Laura the piglet and Marina the kitten — two rescued babies who are overcoming some very sad pasts thanks to plenty of love and care. And, of course, plenty of snuggles.

The pair are the youngest residents of Santuario Igualdad Interespecie (Interspecies Equality Sanctuary), a refuge for farm animals in Santiago, Chile.

While their backgrounds are quite different, not unlike their species, Laura and Marina have already begun to forge an inseparable bond that makes the future for each so much brighter than before.

Dog Joins Half Marathon, Finishes 7th

Early Saturday morning, Ludivine, a 2˝-year-old hound dog, was let out of the house in Elkmont, Alabama, to do her business. Prone to roaming around town at will, Ludivine snuck out of the backyard and made her way to the starting area of the inaugural Trackless Train Trek Half Marathon about a quarter mile away.

Ludivine proceeded to mingle with the runners, run the entire 13.1-mile course, cross the finish line in an unofficial 1:32:56, and have a medal draped over her floppy brown ears—all without her owner, April Hamlin, realizing she had wandered off in the first place. The incident was first reported in Canadian Running Magazine.



World View will launch space flights from Arizona

World View, the commercial balloon spaceflight company, plans to expand in southern Arizona with the world’s first purpose-built stratospheric ballooning facility and Spaceport Tucson, the state’s first designated launchpad for commercial space endeavors.

World View plans to hire more than 400 new employees and will continue its hiring process upon completion of its new campus, which will include a manufacturing facility and spacecraft bay, and will serve as the site of Spaceport Tucson.

The new 135,000-square-foot campus will be located on 28 acres within Pima County’s Aerospace, Defense and Technology Business & Research Park. The project will benefit the community with a capital investment of $47.3 million and a total economic impact of $3.5 billion over 20 years.

Founded in 2014, World View has been using its innovative flight system in conjunction with NASA, Northrop Grumman, universities and others to fly instruments for communications, weather, surveillance and research.
