Bob is a 10wk old kitten who came in with a fully degloved tail, superficial lacerations, and a possible fractured pelvis. Today, Dr. P did x-rays and did not see any obvious fractures but could not rule out a pelvis fracture entirely. He does walk fine but a little gingerly. He will need a tail amputation, but thankfully he is able to use his litterbox fine, so no issues with incontinence that we have seen. He is a very sweet kitten with a content personality. He is forever purring and making biscuits. He has a great appetite and is in general just an awesome little guy. If you know of a rescue that can help our sweet little Bob, please have them email kbrooks@longviewtexas.gov. Please share, tag and pledge if you can to help us help him! Thank you!

MANILA, Philippines – Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard will not join the team in the flight to Disney World Orlando due to a “family matter,” per Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.

This development comes as all 22 invited teams have started to arrive to the sanitized Orlando venue in preparation for the July 30 NBA season restart.

Per Haynes’ report, Leonard was given permission by the team to stay behind for a while and will eventually join the team once the matter is resolved.

There has been no indication yet that the 29-year-old star has contracted COVID-19, even after teammate Landry Shamet tested positive last Sunday, July 5.

Leonard has been his usual elite self during his first year with the rising Los Angeles franchise, averaging career-highs across the board with 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5 assists in 51 appearances.

Along with fellow superstar Paul George and top bench players like Lou Williams, Montezl Harrell and Marcus Morris, Leonard and the Clippers are expected to be top title contenders this season like their city rival Los Angeles Lakers.

If Leonard leads the Clippers to their first franchise title and wins another Finals MVP award in the process, he will be the first player in NBA history to win the award with 3 different teams. – Rappler.com

Bayer rethinks weedkiller accord after court criticism

FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany – German chemical giant Bayer said on Wednesday, July 8, it was reviewing a plan to resolve future litigation linked to claims that its Roundup weedkiller causes cancer, after a United States judge criticized the proposed settlement.

In a statement, Bayer said the motion for court approval of the $1.25-billion (1.1-billion-euro) deal had been withdrawn to “enable the parties to more comprehensively address the questions” raised by US judge Vince Chhabria.

Bayer said last month it would pay more than $10 billion to end a wave of lawsuits that has weighed on the company since it bought the US firm and Roundup maker Monsanto in 2018.

Most of the money will go towards settling tens of thousands of existing cases in the US, but around $1.25 billion has been earmarked to shut down future claims – and this part of the deal requires court approval.

In a blow to Bayer, judge Chhabria, who presides over a US district court in northern California, said on Monday, July 6, he was “inclined to deny” Bayer’s request for approval.

He expressed concern about Bayer’s plan for a panel of scientists rather than judges to decide future cases, specifically whether a claimant’s cancer was caused by Roundup or not.

Chhabria said it was “questionable” whether the proposed approach was “lawful” and whether it was in the “best interest” of potential claimants to join the class agreement given that US juries have so far awarded huge sums in damages to plaintiffs.

Bayer, which is not admitting any wrongdoing as part of the $10-billion-plus settlement package, maintains that scientific studies and regulatory approvals show Roundup’s main ingredient glyphosate is safe.

But other research claims that glyphosate can cause cancer.

The landmark first Roundup case saw US jurors award school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson $289 million in damages over his terminal non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2018. That sum was reduced on appeal to $78.5 million.

In another case, pensioner Edwin Hardeman was awarded $25 million.

Bayer on Wednesday said it “remains strongly committed” to finding a solution to potential future claims.

Its next court hearing was scheduled for July 24 but the withdrawal of the motion might shake up the calendar.

Shares in Bayer closed 0.7% lower at 63.29 euros on Frankfurt’s DAX 30 index, after shedding around 5% on Tuesday, July 7. – Rappler.com

MANILA, Philippines – The national government is set to allow motorcycle backriding for couples on July 10, Department of the Interior and Local Governmet (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año said on Thursday, July 9.

In an interview with dzMM on Thursday morning, Año said the government’s national task force against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has approved the recommendation of Bohol Governor Arthur Yap that couples should be allowed to share a a motorcycle.

Why does this matter? Backriding is banned in any area under quarantine, which still covers much of the country in various degrees. (READ: ECQ, MECQ, GCQ, MGCQ: Who can go where?)

In defending the ban earlier, DILG Secretary Año said that the virus does not choose who to infect, even couples.

What comes next? Like other directives, the policy shift must be reflected in the government’s guidelines, which are issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force, composed of Duterte Cabinet members.

The DILG may also issue a memorandum to order or advise local government units who have passed their own ordinances to ban backriding for all that they allow couples to share a motorcycle again. – Rappler.com

MANILA, Philippines – The 9 cops accused of killing 4 intelligence officers of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in Sulu were transferred to the Philippine National Police Camp Crame headquarters, the PNP Public Information Office said on Wednesday, July 8.

The PNP said the 9 cops arrived in Manila on Tuesday morning, July 7.

Why does this matter? The 9 cops were flown to Manila from Sulu so that they can be probed by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), without the risk of the cops escaping and going into hiding.

The 9 cops were placed under the custody of the Camp Crame Headquarters Support Service, which is in charge of security and order inside the national headquarters.

What comes next? The NBI has yet to provide updates on its investigation, which will decide what criminal complaints would be filed against the cops. (READ: ‘It was murder’: Army bares details of Jolo police ‘rubout’ of 4 soldiers)

The PNP also earlier announced that it will form a board of inquiry with the AFP, but has yet to issue a memorandum to formalize the panel and its scope.

The cops are accused of killing 4 soldiers led by Major Marvin Indammog in Jolo on June 29. The intelligence officers were pursuing terrorists in Jolo. – Rappler.com

Pepper Jack ID# A1649509

Pepper Jack is a very sweet, middle aged black cat who loves to hang out in her cat dome all day. When our vet examined her, it was noted that Pepper Jack has terrible stomatitis and is probably in massive oral pain. She is currently on heavy duty pain meds but really needs some dental work (which we are not equipped to perform here) and then would be a happy, normal cat. Are you able to help Pepper Jack get the help she needs?

If you can, please email rescue@broward.org.
