Rob Dyrdek--I love this guy, I think his intelligence is underestimated because he's not wearing a suit and tie. He's brilliant, hilarious, and entertaining!

In the Jiangsu Province in China, animal rescuers paid $8,000 to buy all the dogs who were already in a truck on its way to the slaughterhouse. They posted this photo on Facebook after bringing all the rescued dogs to the Ping An A Fu stray animal rescue.

Irena Sendler. 1910-2008 A 98 year-old Polish woman named Irena Sendler recently died. During WWII, Irena worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing/sewer specialist. Irena smuggled Jewish children out; infants in the bottom of the tool box she carried and older children in a burlap sack she carried in the back of her truck. She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids’ and infants’ noises. Irena managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children. She eventually was caught, and the Nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar buried under a tree in her backyard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and reunited some of the families. Most had been killed. She helped those children get placement into foster family homes or adopted. Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won.
