The fast-food value wars are heating up again, and McDonald's has introduced a new chicken sandwich on its $1 $2 $3 menu. It's almost a carbon copy of Chick-fil-A's classic chicken sandwich. But - surprise - it's just not as good as the original. McDonald's new value menu has reignited the fast-food wars, but there's yet another battle brewing because of it. On the three-dollar tier of the menu sits the new Classic Chicken Sandwich, which almost anyone can see is a direct stab at Chick-fil-A's classic chicken sandwich.

There is a protected forest north of Peterborough, Ontario, where deer thrive. They cannot be hunted here and predators are few. They have become accustomed to the humans who live in the area and will often wander near or watch them curiously from a short distance. This has gone on for generations and the deer know little fear of humans. Because this is a protected sanctuary, the interaction with humans poses no threat. If you sit quietly in the forest for long enough, you are likely to see deer wander past as they graze and explore. Crunching on a snack can make them even more bold. This man sat quietly on a log and ate his apple. It seemed that there were no deer to be seen, but suddenly, a small doe ran right to him, hopped over a log and stood in front of him expectantly. The smell of the apple, or the sound of it was obviously too tempting to resist. It watches him curiously as he holds out the apple. On past occasions, these deer have occasionally come close enough to eat out of his hand. This one seems reluctant though and he bites off a piece to share. He tosses a chunk in the grass and the deer sniffs it out. On very rare occasions, the does will even bring their fawns out of hiding as they visit. It is typical for a doe to hide her fawns in the long grass for hours at a time while they wander off in search of food. They keep an eye from a distance and distract predators, if needed. Communicating with their tails, ears and body language, does will signal danger and fawns will obediently take cover. Bringing them out of hiding in the presence of a human shows enormous trust. Deer are one of the most beautiful and gentle animals on earth and spending time sitting quietly in a peaceful forest, sharing the silence with such a graceful creatures is an unforgettable experience.
Watching Pig Rush to Save Friend On Slaughter Block Will Change How You See These Animals Completely (VIDEO)
Pigs are remarkably intelligent and emotional creatures who form sincere social bonds. Their mental capacity is so advanced that they are often said to have the intelligence comparable to that of a three-year-old human. Scientists have stated that pigs have the emotional ability to empathize, and videos of pigs comforting each other in times of distress, such as on a factory farm or slaughterhouse truck, prove that pigs are far more advanced and complex than most people perceive them to be. In the above video, we see further proof that pigs are intelligent and empathetic with meaningful social bonds. We witness the disturbing scene from a pig slaughter operation, and as one pig struggles against
The mother of a University of Alabama student who received national scorn for her racist rants on video said she agreed with the school’s decision to expel her daughter.
The White House and many Congressional Republicans attempted Friday to pin the potential government shutdown on Senate Democrats, trying to name it the “Schumer Shutdown” after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). But their strategy was undermined by a prominent member of the president’s own party. Lindsey Graham, the senior senator from South Carolina, told MSNBC that he is still a “no” on the legislation passed by the House on Thursday that would keep the government open for 30 days but do nothing to protect beneficiaries of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA provided protection to more than 750,000 people who were brought as undocumented immigrants
