The Bumblebee Could Be the Next Drone

Battery life is an ongoing problem with drones, since it limits their reach. But scientists may have found a solution in the form of bumblebees, which are already in danger of eventual extinction.

Pamper Your Pooch in a Noise-Cancelling Kennel

It's a gift that might prove especially handy around New Year's Eve, when many house pets cower upon hearing the rattling of celebratory fireworks and other noises.

However, the campaign, when it started, may never have envisioned becoming practically obsolete -- not because its message doesn't matter, but because forest/wild fires seem to be just about everyplace these days. And people aren't the only culprits when wildfires start and spread -- climate change has created an environment in which many landscapes are so dry that they are practically fires waiting to happen, sometimes as a result of a lightning strike.
