Gel that can instantly stop bleeding heads to veterinary surgeries
Wired
Joe Landolina was only 17 when he invented a gel that could stop bleeding within a matter of seconds. Five years later and that product, now branded as Vetigel, will start being shipped in the United States. Just not (yet) for humans. Vetigel is a simple gel made from a natural algae-based polymer, which Landolina discovered can cooperate with the body's native cellular clotting signals to accelerate hemostasis — the name of the process by which blood flow is stymied.

Protect the welfare of our nation's walking horses
AVMA
Soring horses has been illegal for more than 40 years, but it's still happening. Congress tried, and failed, last session to pass an important bill that would protect horses from the abusive act of soring. Now, two senators have once again taken a step in the right direction by reintroducing legislation that will hopefully end this cruel practice. The Prevent All Soring Tactics Act will take many important steps to ban the unethical practice of soring, from making the actual act of soring illegal to overhauling the U.S. Department of Agriculture's oversight and enforcement capabilities.
