Those fighting the sex trafficking of children are enlisting truck drivers to help. A nonprofit group called Truckers Against Trafficking is reaching out to truckers about tell-tale signs of trafficking and distributing cards with the number for a 24-hour hotline. Sarah Jaikel started the hotline five years ago and says truck drivers are in an “incredibly unique position to recognize and report sex trafficking of children in this country.”

Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: Long-lost silverback gorilla bros Kesho and Alf were reunited this week after spending nearly three years apart — and it was brotherly love at first embrace, according to staff at Longleat Safari Park in the U.K.:

We weren’t entirely sure that the brothers would even know each other, (Kesho has gained 200 pounds!) but the moment they met you could just see the recognition in their eyes.
They were touching each other through the cage that temporarily separated them and there were no acts of aggression.
We put them together 24 hours later and it was like they had never been apart.

Animals are smarter than we think!

Yum!

Jet-injected drugs may mean the end of needles

Whether you’re at the doctor’s office or taking medicine at home, future injections could be a lot less painful with this new gadget developed at MIT. Instead of a sterile metal point penetrating your skin, it fires a jet of medicine through your skin at the speed of sound. […]
