Keeping Florida’s Flying Squirrels Safe
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said that over the past three years, poachers had set nearly 10,000 traps for flying squirrels and had captured as many as 3,600 of the little animals. These squirrels and some other animals are sold to buyers in other countries illegally.
Flying squirrels can’t really fly, not like a bird. Instead, they glide from one tree branch to another, both to find food and escape predators. They can glide because of a furry membrane of skin that stretches from their wrists to their ankles. It’s called the patagium.

Biden Family Secrets Revealed?
There has been a lot of commotion in the news and across the internet about Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. The son had been hired to work for the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings. Even though he didn’t have the education or credentials for such a position, Hunter was earning about $50,000 a month. This made a lot of people wonder how he managed to get the job. Joe Biden repeatedly denied knowing anything about his son’s dealings in other countries.
After this story broke, social media giants Twitter and Facebook worked to prevent it from reaching many of their users. This has further flamed the fight against censorship, especially against conservatives.
