A Tribute to Leonard Nimoy“At the moment Leonard’s soul left him on Friday morning, his family had gathered around him in a ring of love. Leonard smiled, and then he was gone. It was gentle passing, as easy as a “hair being lifted from a cup of milk,” as the Talmud describes the moment of death. What did Leonard see? We can’t know, but Susan imagines that he beheld his beloved cocker spaniel Molly, an angelic presence in life and now in death.”Aconitum-Napellus
— Rabbi John L. Rosove
Perhaps I had to wait until I read this until I could write anything non-fictional. Having read Zachary Quinto's tribute, where he said he 'knew [Leonard] was very sick during the last few days of his life,' I think I needed to hear that he

Endangered Animal: Blue-throated Macaw
These brightly colored birds are popular pets, but in the wild they can only found in the Beni area in northern Bolivia. Although they look similar to the common Blue and Gold Macaw, the Blue-throated Macaw is smaller in size and lacks the green spot on its crown.
Macaws are very social birds, and they mate for life. As pets, they can li

Welcome to the third part of the Endangered feature series for Unframed-Nature!
Previous parts: Snow Leopard | African Wild Dog
Endangered animal: Blue Whale
These massive whales are the world's largest mammals. They are found in all oceans with the exception of the Arctic ocean, and they are the largest in the Antarctic, where they can grow up to 110 ft (33 m).
The species was a major target for whaling from 1868 to 1966, and their population is estimated to have decreased 70-90 % during this time. Since then they have been slowly growing in numbers, as they are currently not threatened by any major factors globally. However, ship strikes and entanglements that kill or damage the whales are very frequent in some areas, and the effects of modern
