This koala looks rather sad. But who can blame him?
According to Australia’s Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES), the sub-adult male koala was recently discovered sitting atop the remnants of what was once his home in Vittoria State Forest, New South Wales. Although the logging operation was approved by the forestry service, judging by the koala’s confused expression, not everyone got the memo.
“Koalas would have been moved out of their homes in preparation for planned logging activities,” says WIRES general manager, Leanne Taylor.
“It is common for koalas to roam back to their home range afterwards and become confused to find nothing there. A worker noticed a koala had been sitting stationary in broad daylight on top of wood piles for over an hour.”
The perplexed marsupial, found to have an injury on its eye, was transfered to a local vet before being relocated once again back into a different patch of forest. Forestry workers found three other koalas at the clearcut site and they were transfered as well.
CISPA is a nightmare.
There has been a lot of hype, good and bad about the Google Glass. What can unanimously be confirmed is that it is a bold effort by Google to change the way we do things. This morning Google released their first practical vision for the long awaited Google Glass. Although there has still been no word on when it will be released for consumer use, They have released a new video (see below) along with new images and information to get our technology teeth into. Google have reached out to the communities of Google+ and Twitter to give die hard enthusiasts a chance to use the Google Glass.
“We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. We’d love to make everyone an Explorer, but we’re starting off a bit smaller. We’re still in the early stages, and while we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting.”
Google have decided that its time to put on your glasses and enter a new dimension of technology, let us know whether you are excited or skeptical about the Google Glass.
