GOOD NEWS ✰✰✰✰✰: Howard G Buffett donates US$24-million to campaign against rhino poaching. (14 March 2014) JOHANNESBURG - American philanthropist Howard G Buffett donated $24-million to South Africa's national parks service on Friday to fund a high-tech campaign against rhino poaching, which he compared to the United States's war on drugs on its southern border. Buffett, son of billionaire investor and Berkshire Hathaway Inc chairman Warren Buffett, one of the world's richest men, presented the R255-million cheque to South African authorities at Standard Bank offices in Johannesburg. The money will fund a 30-month campaign to try to reverse a losing battle being fought against rhino poachers in the flagship Kruger Park, where illegal hunters infiltrating from Mozambique have been decimating the rhino population. enca.com/south-africa/millions-donated-war-rhino-poaching _________________________________________ !

Glass changes colors when in contact with common 'date rape' drugs like ketamine, Rohypnol and GHB. DrinkSavvy is launching color changing glassware to detect if a drink has been spiked with three common date-rape drugs.
