Kea Parrots Can Make Other Kea Parrots Laugh

Kea Parrots Can Make Other Kea Parrots Laugh:  The highly intelligent Kea parrot has a specific call, that - like human laughter - puts other parrots that hear it in a good mood, making it the first known non-mammal to show contagious emotion.  In fact, the parrots have been found to be so good at getting laughs, several have already been booked in prominent Las Vegas nightclubs for the summer.

FBI Investigating Ties Between Trump Campaign and Russia:  FBI Director James Comey acknowledged before the House Intelligence Committee that his agency was investigating potential ties between President Trump's campaign and Russian efforts to influence the election.  Gee, Director Comey’s testimony is gonna make it rather difficult for the Trump people to dismiss this as simply “fake news.”  The only thing I can think of is perhaps if they start chanting “Benghazi" again at the top of their lungs - that might help.

Study Finds Coffee Houses and ATMs Ideal Locations for Defibrillators:  Researchers say having defibrillators available at coffee shops and ATMs could play a major role in helping reduce deaths caused by out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.  No kidding!  You pay $6 for a cup of coffee at Starbucks - then go to the ATM and discover you’re now totally broke.  Sounds like time for a major heart attack to me.
