KFC plans to test plant-based "chicken" with customers later this year, the fast-food company's United Kingdom unit announced. Not only are more people vegans and vegetarians , but even some meat-eaters regularly choose plant-based alternatives (almond milk, tofu, veggie burgers) as part of a healthier, less caloric diet, experts say.

While some customers are happy, there's one group that's decidedly not: ranchers.
That picturesque bay now turned to molten rock
The volcano is still flowing in Hawaii. Four weeks after Kilauea began its latest episode of activity, lava this week destroyed hundreds of homes — including that of Hawaii County's mayor — and has now transformed the Big Island's charming Kapoho Bay into an ominous field of molten rock .

"What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love, and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or whether they be black ... Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world."
