MMA Star Brandon Vera Rescues Sea Turtle, Disses People Who Pollute The Environment

To those who don’t respect the environment, the current One FC champion is going after you.

If there’s one thing that former UFC star Brandon Vera hates so much, it’s people who don’t respect the environment. The current OneFC heavyweight champion posted a video on his Facebook page showing him and a group of friends rescue a sea turtle. The 39-year-old MMA fighter then called out to people who don’t have an ounce of respect for the environment. He even warned them he’ll kick these people in their faces if they won’t stop what they’re doing.

Vera recently posted the video on his page which showed him and his girlfriend, Nenja, saving a turtle and freeing it from the plastic that it got caught in. Vera and the rest of his group were on a beach in Tagkayawan, Quezon in the Philippines.

The poor sea creature got tangled in fishing nets and even plastic and appears to be struggling to move. While his girlfriend was holding the turtle in place, Vera then slowly cut the fishing nets with his pocket knife. The animal was put back in the water and swam away real fast.

But that was not the only problem Vera pointed out on his Facebook post. The mixed martial artist wrote that dynamite fishing is prevalent in the area, he was just not sure if the illegal fishing method is practiced by the locals or by people from other provinces. Vera, however, is dead serious about finding out the truth.

“No matter how you look at it, whomever they are, are just being f****** lazy,” he wrote. Vera added that fishing requires hard work, but some people just do not care about the consequences of illegal fishing methods.

Vera is now asking for help from his fans to spread awareness of the problem of littering and dynamite fishing.

‘Homeschooling’ Mom Lets Her Kids Play Video Games All Day to Educate Them

Would you use video games to homeschool your kids?

By

A school is a messy battleground that bombards us with home works, term papers, exams, projects, and whatever difficult requirements you can think of. Sure, it helps fill our brain with knowledge and experiences that will come in handy when we become adults and face the real battlefield called life but to be brutally honest, there are times when we'd rather play and goof around than solve for the perennially missing x and y.

However, for 44-year-old mother Katie Pybus and her husband Roger, there is a better option over a conventional school. You see, Katie chose to have her three children homeschooled. But unlike any other conventional homeschooling techniques where kids are taught letters and numbers, Katie's kids get busy with video games for seven hours every day.
