Source:  Miles Branman,Digital Trends, 03/28/2017 In 2013, M2K Motorsports turned up in a 2006 Ford GT that developed 2,000hp. That vehicle set an astounding top speed of 278.2 mph – faster than any production car’s overall top speed. M2K evidently wasn’t satisfied, though. They’ve returned to the “Mile” this year with a retuned version of the same car. What started as a stock GT with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 and 550hp has Frankensteined into a top speed dynamo with far more than 2,000hp. All that power makes for one insane sprint. After a tame launch, the GT is doing 161.7 mph by the end...

It’s the first car to ever do that in under 2.3 seconds in the magazine’s testing. With this sort of power, merging into the traffic on the highway is less of an issue than trying not to rear-end anyone while you’re doing it. That’s quicker than high-priced hybrid supercars like the $1.5 million Ferrari LaFerrari, the $1.1 McLaren P1...

Does America have enough dogs for all the people who want one?

Source:  Washington Post / By Kim Kavin / February 8 at 8:00 AM American animal shelters are taking in — and saving — many more dogs than previously believed, according to a new study by researchers at the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. The study found that the number of dogs euthanized in American animal shelters has dropped to fewer than 780,000 per year, and that shelters take in more than 5.5 million dogs each year. Those figures are dramatically different from estimates by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which says 1.2 million...
