Chief Warrant Officer (W-4), U.S. Navy, Boyd Renner. Renner served for 28 years in the Navy all of that time as a SEAL. He served for 23 years with the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). DEVGRU is the Tier 1 counter-terrorism component of the Navy. With a total of 12 combat deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq Boyd has a unique perspective. We discussed his role in Operation Red Wings 2 which was the mission to locate and recover Marcus Luttrell, as well as the SEALs that were killed on the quick reaction helicopter that got shot down attempting to provide back up to Luttrell’s team.
We discussed leadership, tactical medicine, the burning out of Special Operations Forces, and a new product which just released from Boyd’s company called Everence. Everence is a patented technology that allows you to add DNA from a loved one directly into any new or existing tattoo.

When most people think of sharks, they probably think of big, sharp teeth. But did you know that there are some species of shark that actually are venomous?
Native to North America’s Pacific coast, the horn shark (Heterodontus francisci) is one of these venomous species! It is a small, bottom-dwelling bullhead shark (Heterodontidae) that has two high dorsal fins with large venomous spines. Horn sharks can be easily recognized by their short, blunt head with ridges over the eyes and two high dorsal fins. Most adults measure between 1 and 1.2 meters, are most active at night and don’t like the cold. Furthermore, they like to stay put in the same area - the longest distance a horn shark is known to have traveled is only 10 miles! Their diet usually consists of hard-shelled molluscs, crustaceans, star fish, sea urchins, octopus, squid, smaller invertebrates, and bony fish. And to crush all these shells, horn sharks have a powerful bite – in fact, they have the highest known bite force (relative to its size) of any shark! Pretty fascinating, right?
But back to the venomous spines: even though the spines can be painful for divers, the venom is comparatively mild. Nonetheless, intense local pain and swelling has been reported. So, don’t touch them - admire these awesome, beautiful sharks from a distance!

Cows and dogs have a lot more in common than you’d think!
So why do people generally love one, and abuse the other?
Let’s treat both of them how they deserve to be treated !
Loved, fed, alive, happy, healthy and free ! .
PSYCHOLOGY OF COWS
Cows, both infant and adult, have the ability to learn a variety of different tasks and are proved to have long term memory ! They can also feel love and fear around humans as well, as they can identify us from others !
Yes that’s right! Cows will remember who you are and how you treat them for a long time ! Be good to them 🐮💚
Scientists have also proven that cows being abused, DO FEEL PAIN AND FEAR !
There is no such thing as “humane meat” or “cows don’t understand their being slaughtered” THEY ARE AWARE. They are extremely intelligent beings and we need to help save them from the sick people out there.

When you dig a well, there’s no sign of water until you reach it, only rocks and dirt to move out of the way. You have removed enough; soon the pure water will flow. – Buddha
