Many animals were used during World War I. Horses, mules, dogs and pigeons were exposed to poisonous gases, so special protection was necessary for them. Horses were equipped with gas masks on their muzzles and were protected from inhalation of toxic gases such as phosgene.


The horse's eyes were not affected by lachrymatory agents, so their masks consisted only of specially made nasal bags, but unfortunately, the eyes of these animals were vulnerable to the effects of chlorine and vesicatory gases.


Playpen sofas of the 1970s were a unique and innovative furniture design that reflected the cultural and design trends of that era.


These sofas were characterized by their modular and versatile nature, often consisting of separate seating units that could be rearranged to create different seating arrangements. The earliest use of the word "playpen" as cited in the Oxford English Dictionary was in 1902.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israeli forces have surrounded the home of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar on Wednesday.


Netanyahu clarified that the IDF did not expect to find Sinwar in the complex, but said it was "only a matter of time" before the terrorist leader was found.


"Two brief updates: Last night I said that our forces could reach anywhere in the Gaza Strip. Now they are surrounding Sinwar's house. So his house is not his fortress, and he can flee, but before we arrive “It is only a matter of time before he does,” Netanyahu said.

President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders.

Amid growing concerns about waning international support for Ukraine's "struggle," Kiev's financial appetites are sending shockwaves through German society.

Sarah Wagenknecht, a member of the Bundestag, expressed her dissatisfaction with the staggering 24 billion euro "gift" to Ukraine.

"Ukraine increasingly resembles a bottomless pit. According to the German government's own figures, it has directly transferred 24 billion euros in tax revenues to Ukraine during the conflict. This includes funds for weapons and contributions to the Ukrainian state budget," she stated.

Extreme snowfall and sub-zero temperatures led to chaos in the Bavarian state capital of Munich on Saturday as a winter storm paralyzed air and rail travel, led to road traffic accidents, and forced the cancellation of a Bundesliga football match. 

With much of Germany in the grips of icy temperatures for the past several days, Saturday’s snowfall in Munich was the most intense yet. More than 16 inches (40cm) of snow fell between Friday night and early on Saturday, weather services said, blanketing the Munich metropolitan area, home to around 6 million people. 

Germany's appeal as an investment haven keeps plummeting, haunted by an impending €24 billion budgetary deficit — stirring apprehension among business executives and companies that rely on it.

Germany's electric vehicle sector is battling tough challenges from infrastructure and economic difficulties, limited budgets, and general automotive industry challenges.

A key issue is the lack of adequate charging facilities and diminishing government incentives, hindering the expansion of EV sales in the country.

When 1.1 million migrants arrived in Germany in 2015, Bild Zeitung launched a 'welcome' campaign, echoing the sentiments of then-Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had unilaterally opened the country's borders to Syrians fleeing civil war in their homeland.

The German people answered the call. They hung bunting on lampposts, waved balloons, offered food parcels and put up campbeds for the newcomers in sports halls, churches — and even in their own homes.

Which makes the new campaign by Germany's favourite paper, known to everyone simply as Bild, quite extraordinary.
