PETA Protests Wilmington Company

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below is a press release from PETA:Armed with signs that proclaim, “Charles River Is Hell for Animals” and “Stop Animal Testing,” a group of PETA supporters gathered outside Charles River Laboratories in Wilmington on Thursday, April 25, 2019 during World Week for Animals in Laboratories.The Wilmington-based laboratory-for-hire performs poisoning tests on monkeys, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other animals and is also the world’s largest breeder of animals for use in experiments.“Charles River supplies one of every two animals used in experiments, so it has a hand in fully half of all the pain, misery, fear, and distress endured by animals in laboratories around the world,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “This World Week for Animals in Laboratories, PETA is calling for an end to cruel and unreliable tests on animals.”PETA notes that Charles River Laboratories intentionally poisons animals by force-feeding them test compounds, smears caustic experimental chemicals onto their bare skin, and forces them to inhale toxic substances in painful and deadly experiments. The company’s history of animal-welfare violations includes failure to provide animals with veterinary care, failure to provide suffering animals with pain relief, and shoddy surgical methods.PETA Protestors outside Charles River Lab in Wilmington (Photo courtesy of PETA’s Twitter account)###Charles River Labs addresses its animal testing practices on its website:“Animals have contributed to nearly every medical breakthrough in recent history, including treatments for cancer, diabetes, and AIDS, and they continue to play an essential role in the development of life-saving drugs for people and other animals. The welfare of the animals contributing to research is of utmost importance and a prerequisite for the accuracy, reliability, and translatability of our research.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro among 11 others to receive Android Q

first_imgXiaomi smartphone users are eagerly waiting for MIUI 11, but the Chinese smartphone company has better news for its fans. Ahead of the feature-packed MIUI 11 rollout to all eligible phones, Xiaomi released a list of 11 devices that will receive Google’s latest Android Q as early as this year.Android Q beta for non-Pixel smartphones included Mi MIX 3, Mi 9 and Redmi K20 Pro and these phones naturally made it to the list of phones eligible for Android Q. Xiaomi additionally revealed the names of other smartphones to receive stable Android Q during the fourth quarter of this year. They include Xiaomi Mi 8, Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Mi Mix 2S, Redmi K20, and Mi 9 SE.But the list doesn’t end there. Xiaomi further added two popular Redmi phones, Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro, to the list of Android Q eligible phones. But owners of Redmi Note 7 models will have to wait until Q1 2020 for the update rollout. Redmi Note 7 ProTwitter/Mi IndiaThe information about Android Q stable rollout to 11 Xiaomi phones was posted on the official MIUI Forum in China. It’s worth noting that the rollout schedule is applicable to the Chinese variants of the eligible phones. Even though there’s no official word on when Android Q for the enlisted phones will arrive in global and Indian markets, it is possible that the rollout will be staged a few weeks apart.Considering Xiaomi is still working on MIUI 11, which has been in development since January, the company is playing it safe by stressing that the Android Q schedule is only a rough estimate. There might be some changes in the schedule depending on any hurdles that might arise. Android Q coming to these Mi phonesGoogleXiaomi’s list for Android Q eligibility is brief, but more devices are likely to be added in the near future. For now, Xiaomi users have something equally exciting to look forward to – MIUI 11. The updated custom Android interface is expected to bring smoother, better UI, major design overhaul, system-wide dark mode, optimisation for foldable screens and much more.MIUI 11 will be available to a long list of phones in Xiaomi’s portfolio. You can check all about it in our earlier MIUI 11 post.
