SCARIEST TORNADO EVER !!!
A never ending nightmare as several tornadoes threaten Canton Texas one after another. The third and largest tornado ripped down a transmission tower and was the scariest tornado I've ever witnessed. For licensing video contact email@example.com
April 29, 2017
A stationary boundary positioned over the town of Canton Texas would serve as a track for tornadoes to train down one after another. High precipitation supercells with low cloud bases, tracking swiftly over forrest terrain created a worst case scenario for locals and storm chasers.
The first tornado I witnessed was small and rain wrapped causing only EF0 damage to trees and barns east of Canton. After this weak tornado dissipated a large tornado was developing upstream and racing toward town.
The second tornado I witnessed was heavily shrouded and badly damaged houses right behind me. It would eventually strengthen to one of the most powerful tornadoes of 2017, leveling a two story brick home and sweeping much of the foundation clean of debris. Two people would lose their lives before this EF4 finally dissipated. Meanwhile, another powerful tornado was developing near Eustace Texas only a few miles from where the last tornado developed.
The third tornado I witnessed was a brief rope satellite south of Canton on highway 19. It was difficult to see and not shown in this video, however I will likely include it in my Tornadoes of 2017 video.
The forth tornado I witnessed was the main event in this video. While attempting to find a closer clearing to view this tornado, I miscalculated it's ground speed. This was a needless gamble on my part placing me too close to a fast moving, rapidly intensifying wedge and directly in its path. the tornado would track up highway 19 toward Canton and after crossing the road it would tear down a transmission tower. It would expand to over a mile wide as it swallowed the Rustic Barn, a family event venue. 20 people including a couple babies would seek shelter inside a bathroom. Everyone would survive. The tornado eventually crossed interstate 20 killing 2 people and striking a Dodge dealership tossing cars up to a half a mile. The small community of Fruitvale was also in the damage path. That's were I helped assist some victims.
...Was a brief suction tornado in Fruitvale TX tracking close to the previous wedge tornado's damage.

Hundreds of shoes, handbags made out of endangered species confiscated
1. Environmental protection agency (PROFEPA)
2. Tilt down from building to animal skin and head
3. Various of animal skin, head, horn
4. Pan left from wild cat to boxes and boots
5. Close boots (made from turtle's skin)
6. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Antonio Diaz, deputy legal chief of PROFEPA's Guanajuato office
I don't know exactly (the price of the skin) but I hear that a piece like this (a piece of turtle's skin that he has) is around 100 pesos (10 US dollars).
7. Various close shoes and belt (made from turtle's skin)
8. Wide and close man showing boots
9. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Antonio Diaz, deputy legal chief of PROFEPA's Guanajuato office
Part of the investigation was done by the Attorney General's Office because (the crime) started in United States. In United States (authorities) detected that there was trafficking of shoes for the last three years. Authorities alerted us that they found a location where there were shoes, which were imported illegally, because (the shoes) were not reported in Customs. Then, they (US authorities) detained the owner of this business in Denver. Meanwhile we went to the storeroom. (Q Reporter: Is he (owner of the storeroom) the one who was detained recently in the US?) Yes, the one who was with the man who made Fox's boots. Well, the one that people said made Fox's boots.
10. Close boxes reading: Exotics Boots
11. Tilt up boots (made with turtle's skin)
12. Mid and close boxes reading: Caguama (a turtle which is an endangered species)
13. Tilt down from man to shoes (made with crocodile's skin)
14. Mid man showing boots (made with turtle's skin)
15. Mid Eloy Urroz and journalist
16. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Eloy Urroz, Guanajuato chief of the environmental protection agency (PROFEPA)
It's clear that in order to have more than 400 shoes and boots made with turtle's skin, they (the shoe's traffickers) were working with a network of people that would go to the coast - we think the places were Michoacan and Guerrero states - to buy turtles or to buy the skin that they took from turtles that were killed illegally on the coast.
17. Various man carrying pieces of animal skin
Are ex-Mexican President Vicente Fox and US President George W Bush wearing illegal cowboy boots?
Probably not, but the idea has captured the imagination of the Mexican news media and political foes alike since Fox's former personal bootmaker was arrested earlier this month for allegedly trafficking illegal products made from protected animal species.
During Fox's six-year term ending in 2006, Martin Villegas Terrones created a special brand of cowboy boot named after the president, which he manufactured in Mexico's shoemaking capital, Leon, in Fox's home state of Guanajuato.
Villegas made swanky footwear not just for the president, but also for his bodyguards, cabinet members, relatives and friends, including Bush, a fellow lover of ranchwear who accepted a pair as a gift during a visit to Fox's ranch when the two were still friends in the pre-9/11 years.
Villegas, who became somewhat of a celebrity due to his famous clients, is now being held without bail in the US state of Colorado on charges of conspiring to illegally smuggle exotic skins into the United States along with substantive counts of smuggling and money laundering, according to a declaration by the US Justice Department.
Villegas was caught on September 6, along with two other Mexican nationals and two US residents, following a three-year undercover operation by agents of the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the department said.

The Biggest Rattlesnakes Ever Caught
Rattlesnakes live in many places and habitats in the Western Hemisphere, from mountains to deserts and plains.
There are more than 24 rattlesnake species and all of them have that most-famous feature: the rattle! The rattle is found at the tip of the rattlesnake’s tail. The snake uses the rattle to warn potential aggressors to back off or to distract prey. The famous rattle noise comes from the sound created when hollow and bony doughnutlike segments in the rattle bang together.

American Indian Wars
Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
The American Indian Wars (or Indian Wars) is the collective name for the various armed conflicts fought by European governments and colonists, and later the United States government and American settlers, against various American Indian tribes. These conflicts occurred within the United States and Canada from the time of the earliest colonial settlements in the 17th century until the 1920s. The various Indian Wars resulted from a wide variety of sources, including cultural clashes, land disputes, and criminal acts committed on both sides. European powers and the colonies also enlisted Indian tribes to help them conduct warfare against one another's colonial settlements.
After the American Revolution, many conflicts were local to specific states or regions and frequently involved disputes over land use; some entailed cycles of violent reprisal. The British Royal Proclamation of 1763 included in the Constitution of Canada prohibited white settlers from taking the lands of indigenous peoples in Canada without signing a treaty with them. It continues to be the law in Canada today, and 11 Numbered Treaties covering most of the First Nations lands limited the number of such conflicts.
As white settlers spread westward after 1780, the size, duration, and intensity of armed conflicts increased between settlers and Indians. The climax came in the War of 1812, which resulted in the defeat of major Indian coalitions in the Midwest and the South, and conflict with settlers became much less common. Conflicts were resolved by treaty, often through sale or exchange of territory between the federal government and specific tribes. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 authorized the US government to enforce the Indian removal east of the Mississippi River to the other side of the sparsely populated American frontier. The policy of removal was eventually refined to relocate Indian tribes to specially designated and federally protected reservations.
