Video: Dogs “Walk” Humans, Adoptions Rise

We've all seen ads for animal shelters and the Humane Society featuring sad faces of animals looking for their "furever" home. Yes, they can tug at your heart, and are quite often very effective. However, after you see them over and over, they can lose their emotional impact. With this in mind, an Australian animal shelter came up with a unique program in which the dogs do the "rescuing" of humans. Check out the video to see how this shift in perspective saved some 5,000 dogs.

Amateur Radio Has a ‘Field Day’ Last Weekend in June

Despite the Internet, cell phones, email and modern communications, every year whole regions find themselves in the dark. Tornadoes, fires, storms, ice and even the occasional cutting of fiber optic cables leave people without the means to communicate. In these cases, the one consistent service that has never failed has been Amateur Radio. These radio operators, often called “hams,” provide backup communications for everything from the American Red Cross to FEMA and even for the International Space Station. Victoria’s “hams” will join with thousands of other Amateur Radio operators showing their emergency capabilities the weekend of June 28-29, 2014.

Video: Fast Food Ads vs. Reality

We've all seen the ads for the various major fast food restaurants. The pictures of their menu items look so amazingly delicious! Why, you can just smell the wonderful aroma of fresh, juicy beef...warm, fluffy buns, and crisp, farm-fresh lettuce, tomato and onion, right? Well, I think you'll agree that what we see isn't always what we get; and one YouTube video producer set out to find the fast food that looks the most like it does in their ads.

HD Video: The DIY Magic of Amateur Radio

You've probably read my many posts about the hobby and service of amateur (aka "ham") radio. Some folks think that amateur radio is an "outdated" technology, but as this brief video shows, ham radio remains on the cutting-edge of communications. If you know of a younger person who shows an interest in technology, please share this video with them. Did you know that some kids as young as 7 years old have passed their FCC license test to become amateurs? It's true!

Man Trapped Overnight at Vegas Airport Shoots Hilarious Music Video

This is fast becoming the hottest viral video on the web, and it's one of the best. Here's the story behind Richard Dunn's hilarious self-shot, self-edited video made to the tune of "All By Myself," by Celine Dion.

Caught overnight at Las Vegas' McCarran Airport with practically no one else around, Richard Dunn could have found many ways to pass the time until his flight in the morning. Instead, he put his trusty iPhone to work and made this hilariously cheesy music video for Celine Dion's 1996 cover of "All By Myself."
