At 4:30 pm the small manufacturers downstairs closed shop. I was to be the only human in the building at night, a fact that frightened my friends, but I loved it and felt I had the best deal in New York.
It's been 20 years since scientists discovered that putting mice on a super-low-calorie diet extends their lifespans dramatically and combats age-rela...
Humerous experiments on male and female non-human animals fail to reliably hold up in humans, and many prominent researchers have argued we need to develop non-animal models in order to learn more about serious diseases from which numerous humans suffer.
If Hollywood wants to make another "Home Alone" movie, this time with the Macaulay Culkin character all grown up but no more mature than he was as an 8-year-old in the 1990 original, I would be happy to take the role.
We are in danger. We need to get out of this house and away from the cat. He is a psychopath. Did you see what he did to that mouse? Torture and dismemberment are activities associated with antisocial personality disorders. And he exhibits no remorse or guilt. He's not right in the head.
The rats/mice/birds exclusion intentionally obfuscates the true numbers of animal used in research. And, it lends credence to the claims of animal rights groups that research institutions have something to hide.
We surely can do better in protecting all of these sentient beings, and the time is now to amend, write, and stringently enforce legislation for better protecting them and the millions of other animals from being brutalized in "the name of science, food, entertainment, and fashion."
Keep an eye out, Chicago. The Windy City was the most rat-infested city in the country in 2013, according to pest-control company Orkin. The company based its rankings on the number of rat-eradication service requests it received in specific cities.
If you're from Southern California you are surely aware we live among millions of mice and tree rats. On any given night you can see them scurrying across power lines, running from telephone pole to telephone pole.
Like all movies that involve the artificial manipulation of people's memories, Eternal Sunshine, which hit screens in 2004, has always been considered a work of fiction. But that was before Wednesday.
In the beginning, the Boys from Redmond created Windows 8. And it was good so they released it unto the computer world. But the members of their flock rebelled and rejected it, because it was "different."
I saluted my diminutive foe to the best of my ability. I thought of Daniel Day Lewis in Last of the Mohicans where Chingachook and Hawk-eye said a pra...
No, I'm not a member of the Hair Club for Men. I'm not talking about grafting my neck hair onto my dome, and I'm not talking about a toupee or hair plugs. I'm talking about the skin on my head actually regrowing hair.
Gregor sees a mouse, attacks it, plays with it, kills it, and, if he is hungry, eats it. That, simply, is what he does. Why, then, is what I do so hard, so complicated, so unsimple? Why cannot I, simply, do what I do?
Your child, my father, and all of our loved ones who may be suffering from illnesses are not rats or dogs or monkeys. So why do animal experimenters keep treating them as though they are?
What is the genesis of the fear? In truth, I'm a lot bigger than these things. And mice -- in a Disney film or even at a pet store -- can be cute. So why the panic?
