Animal Experimentation Laws Fail to Meet Basic Standards for Protecting Animals in Laboratories. The European Commission has sent letters of formal notice to six EU countries regarding inadequacies in their national laws designed to protect animals in laboratories. 

Each member state was required to transfer Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes into national legislation by 10 November 2012. 

However, nearly six years later, the Commission has found widespread failings in the domestic laws of Estonia, Germany, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Spain. Here are the issues:

• Estonia: The Commission identified over 20 articles and three annexes from the Directive that Estonia had failed to enact appropriately.

• Germany: Not only is it possible that German laboratories aren't subject to proper inspections, the wording of German law is also lacking as regards competency requirements for staff and does not adequately require the presence of veterinarians.

• Portugal: Problem areas in Portugal's law mean there isn't sufficient provision for laboratory inspections, among other shortcomings.

• Romania: Romanian law includes insufficient wording concerning the obligation to have veterinary staff on site at laboratories, and it also falls short on penalties.

• Slovakia: Slovakian law fails to fulfil important obligations regarding penalties. Another shortcoming concerns the country's law regarding the use of anaesthesia.

• Spain: Spanish authorities have previously recognised failings in their law but haven't yet addressed them! Areas of concern include record-keeping and the inclusion of safeguard clauses for the use of non-human primates, which might affect whether primates are being used for prohibited procedures.
Please send an urgent message to the relevant authorities of each country calling on them to protect animals and become global leaders in innovative science by ending all tests on animals and investing in cutting-edge, non-animal research methodologies.

April was abandoned in the middle of the rural mountains, left for dead. It appears whoever had her did not want to take care of a pregnant dog, or for the upcoming newborn puppies.

April was attacked in the woods by another animal and she fought for her own, and her unborn babies lives.

April was rescued with severe injuries to her face, body, and was covered in blood.
April is a survivor.

If a little beagle can survive abandonment and abuse - YOUR Rescue + Freedom Project can surely survive a wildfire.

We find strength in April’s resilience, and just like her we will continue to keep fighting, keep rescuing, and keep freeing survivors of abuse.

YOU can save more survivors of trauma like April.

Many universities in the U.S. carry out experiments in which animals are subjected to all manner of torment. But Johns Hopkins University experimenters have outdone themselves when it comes to cruelty. Johns Hopkins Confines Owls to a Basement Laboratory: Take Action Now!

Since 2017, Johns Hopkins University experimenter Shreesh Mysore has received more than $800,000 in tax-funded grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study how groups of neurons or nerve cells work together to carry out different functions—not in humans but in barn owls.

Mysore cuts into the owls' skulls, inserts electrodes into their brains, restrains the birds in an "experimental rig," and then records their neural activity while having them watch dots on a TV monitor or exposing them to bursts of noise through earphones. For some experiments, he's restrained fully conscious owls for up to 12 hours while recording and poking at neurons in their brains. He admits in a paper that "some birds were calm when restrained, while others were not."

In another published paper, Mysore describes how he put the owls in a restraining tube so that they would be prone—an unnatural position for them—and then screwed the bolts connected to their skulls into a "stereotaxic device" so that they couldn't move their heads.

A news release from the university now claims—without evidence or rationale—that understanding neural activity in barn owls could pave the way to developing therapies for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in humans. Say what?

Looking at the neural responses of trapped barn owls—whose skulls were cut open—to dots on a screen or noises delivered through earphones offers no insight into human ADHD. Even if it did, it's too cruel to be allowed.

In addition to its transparent cruelty, the use of animals in experimentation has proved an unqualified failure. The evidence is overwhelming that data from experiments on animals can't be reliably applied to humans. NIH itself acknowledges that 95 percent of drugs that test safe and effective in animals fail in humans because they don't work or are dangerous. And a review in the prestigious medical journal The BMJ reported that more than 90 percent of "the most promising findings from animal research" fail to lead to human treatments.

Yet each year, NIH directs more than $15 billion of taxpayer money to animal experiments. Johns Hopkins is at the front of the line to ride the government gravy train, securing hundreds of millions of dollars for experiments on animals annually.

Please urge NIH not to squander taxpayer dollars on Mysore's cruel and worthless experiments on owls and instead to redirect funds to modern, superior, non-animal research methods.

Cruel and Unscientific: Government Plans to Breed More Marmosets for Experiments. More marmosets may be bred in U.S. laboratories for experiments such as implanting genetically manipulated embryos into female marmosets in order to produce babies who are born with disease-like symptoms or impairments. No animal wants to live behind the bars of a barren metal cage or any other unnatural environment while their bodies are used in pointless, painful, and invasive experiments.

KC Chiefs vs LA Rams: Super Bowl Preview? | By: Skyler Burkardt @ Downtown Rams

If you would of told me that the one team Rams would have to worry about at the beginning of the season was the Chiefs you would of had me laughing until I croaked. Yet, here we are with the 2 best offenses in the NFL battling it out on Monday Night Football for the best record and possibly more... What I am referring to is the elephant in the room, that every sports writer and fan has been talking about, the possible Super Bowl match-up between the Rams and Chiefs. Could this really be the preview to what we will see in February when the whole world is watching? Lets discuss the match-up for Monday and you decide if this is what you want in Atlanta come February.

Match-up Madness:
If you're a die-hard fan of either team or just a casual fan of football, this is the game of the year to watch for many matchup reasons. These two titans are about to battle it out in LA for the top record in the NFL.

Chiefs Offense-
The Chiefs offense is full of weapons that can tear apart a defense at any moment and the Rams have to be ready for this fireworks show. Mahomet has been the ringleader of this offense as he has thrown for a league leading 3,150 yards and 31 touchdowns. His ability to scan the defense and use his arm strength to throw the ball wherever he wants has made it all too easy for this offense. His favorite weapon Tyreek Hill, has been wrecking havoc on opposing defenses with his speed and quickness out of his cuts to bust open deep fade routes or even simple catches over the middle. Look for Peters to keep Hill in front of him to prevent any mistakes this week, that is if he has learned from his past mistakes like he claimed he has. Never-less, if Peters can't keep coverage on Hill then we might see another embarrassing phone call and 200 yards receiving from the speed devil. Safeties on the Rams will also have to play good coverage over top of Hill and communicate well with the corners to ensure no busted coverages happen. Another weapon the Chiefs have is Travis Kelce, who will make his presence known over the middle where he likes to thrive and make mismatches with either the linebackers or the safety. Kelce has such great field awareness and quickness that it makes it difficult to cover if you're a linebacker but big enough that he can box out the safeties and break tackles. Lastly the Chiefs have their own star running back in Kareem Hunt who has almost the same skillset as Gurley. Hunt is good at screens and running the ball through the middle but is not a great route runner. Granted Hunt is still young and getting better every week with his receiving skills but not on the same level as Gurley. Look for the Chiefs to run the ball more this game as the Rams rank 26th in run defense. If the Chiefs can abuse the weak run stopping ability of the Rams then they can run out the clock and take control of the game. Look for the Rams defense to try and gap blitz more often to keep the Chiefs in a passing situation most of the game to allow their pass rush to attack Mahomes. If the Chiefs can establish the run early and often then they will wear out the Rams defense and have the advantage.

Rams Offense-
Just like the Chiefs the Rams have a very talented offensive as well. Every time the Rams get on offense they seem to drive down the field and score with ease. Their ringleader on the offense, Jared Goff, has played his best season yet as he is making pin point accurate throws to receivers to give them every opportunity to win. He is currently second in passing yards behind Mahomes with 3,134 and 22 touchdowns. So this Chiefs last ranked passing defense will have their hands full on Monday in the Coliseum. Chiefs will have to make Goff uncomfortable as he sits behind one of the best offensive lines in football. They will have to use many different blitz packages and looks to try and catch Goff off guard and make him turnover the ball. Look for Goff to attack the Chiefs safeties early and test how disciplined they are in pass coverage. Even with this Chiefs defense in the top 5 for turnovers don’t expect Goff to make many or if any mistake in this game. Rams will also look to get Gurley going early so they can set up the play action and open up the field for their receivers and for their tight ends that they are using more since the injury to Kupp. If Gurley gets rolling they will pull the linebackers up and the firework show will begin. Look for more screens in this game and Goff to use Gurley as a distraction to keep the Chiefs guessing on every play. As for the receiving core without Kupp, the Rams will use more TE sets and try to get Reynolds involved over the middle so Cooks and Woods can stick to doing their thing. Cooks will look to attack Kendall Fuller who will most likely be covering him for most of the game. Fuller is a decent corner but doesn’t get matchups against speedsters like Cooks very often. Look for McVay to use Cooks to stretch the field more this game and test Fuller which may end up to Cooks having his biggest outing this year. 

Mahomes: Under 300 Yards Passing, 2 Passing Touchdowns 
Hill: Under 125 Yards Receiving, Under 30 Yards Rushing  
Hunt: Under 125 Yards Rushing, Over 50 Yards Receiving 
Kelce: Under 75 Yards Receiving, 1 Touchdown
Defense: Under 2.5 sacks, 1 Turnover

Goff: Over 250 Yards Passing, Over 2 Passing Touchdowns 
Cooks: Over 110 yards Receiving, Under 30 Yards Rushing
Gurley: Over 110 Yards Rushing, Under 55 Yards Receiving
Defense: Over 2.5 Sacks, Over 2 Turnovers

Both defenses will look to make the opposing quarterback uncomfortable with their pass rush. The Rams have the better pass rush but if the Chiefs want a chance at slowing down the arial attack of the Rams they need to pressure Goff. Best way for the Chiefs to give pressure on him is to send pressure from the outside on a blitz to make him leave the pocket and use his legs or improvise. If the Chiefs can’t get to Goff then he will tear them apart like a family to the turkey on thanksgiving. On the flip side, Donald and Flowers need to pressure Mahomes and keep him uneasy to limit the amount of time he has to let plays develop. Mahomes has a tendency to keep waiting until his receiver has enough time to finish his route which results in easy sacks or turnovers. Depending on what each team does to the opposing quarterback will determine this game. Both offenses can score every drive but if the defense doesn’t do it’s part then this game will be the highest scoring game we possibly could see. This is a matchup for the ages and most likely will be the future Super Bowl matchup that we will see in Atlanta come February. If both teams can keep healthy heading into the playoffs I see no reason why this isn't the preview of the Super Bowl. Time will tell if these teams can overcome the schedule in front of them and stray away from the injury bug but be ready for a showdown in LA this Monday.
On the Latest Downtown Rams Podcast: Jake talks about the Rams recent 36-31 rivalry win over Seattle, Cooper Kupp's torn ACL, what's next for the offense and the possibility of Pharoh Cooper returning to the roster this week.
