It's hard to believe that some kids are already back in school. It can be hard to get kids in the mood when it is still so summery but your can make it just a little easier with a Animal Back To School Supply Set.
It is estimated that 3 billion people in the world wear flip flops. Since they don't last forever they end up in landfills, and worse, in the oceans. The Indian Ocean alone washes many millions of discarded flip flops onto the beaches around Kenya. Artists there have been taking the old footwear and re-purposing them into usable objects -- most fantastically into beautiful animal sculptures.
The Columbus Zoo has a big new CAT-scanner. They also have a big cat – a 14-year-old male lion named Tomo – who 'volunteered' to get the zoo's state of the art imaging device off to a roaring good start.
As an iconic member of the big cat family, it’s been immortalized down through the ages. It’s touched our culture in varied ways. We allegorize, analogize and identify with this unique feline creature. We compare it to the human condition in art, folklore, and novels.
