    It's a beautiful afternoon, and you're outside in the park. Then, a powerful thunderstorm moves in within minutes. There are no nearby structures or buildings for shelter, but your car is nearby so you make a run for it. After all, the tires will protect you from lightning strikes, right?Wrong.It's an idea that was first thought of in the late 1800s, on bicycles. A rubber tire is an insulator, so it is very difficult for it to conduct electricity. The same with rubber-soled shoes. The problem...

    The tattoo has not previously been seen widely by the public because cameras are not allowed inside Indiana courtrooms. The Indiana Office of the Courts released the photo on July 30 as part of evidence logged in by police and presented to the court by the Floyd County Prosecutor's Office.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter is holding its second annual 'Kitten Shower' this month.

The 'kitten shower' is open to the public, and will be held on June 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be burgers, hot dogs and drinks available for a donation, which will go to help the shelter. The event will take place at 5278 E. 21st St., Tucson 85711.

If possible, partygoers are asked to bring a much needed donation, to the shower. During the inaugural event in 2013, 50 kittens and cats were adopted; this year shelter officials are hoping for 80 to 90, which would be a record for the organization.

There will be volunteers on hand to help with adoption and facility tours, as well as to answer any medical questions potential adopters may have about their future pets. 

Those interested in adopting a cat or kitten during the shower, are encouraged to go online ahead of time to fill out paperwork - http://www.hermitagecatshelter.org/index.php/adopt/adopt.

For more information on this shower event please contact the Adoptions Department (520) 571-7839 or email adoptions@hermitagecatshelter.org.
