Since the mid-1960s, the number of tornadoes in big outbreaks has doubled, according to a study published Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Science. A big outbreak in 1965, for example, would have contained 40 tornadoes, the study said. But by 2015, the number of twisters would have increased to a whopping 80.

The unemployment rate, which is calculated from a different survey than the payroll total, fell from 4.9% to 4.6%, lowest since August 2007, the Labor Department said Friday.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
