Food favorites that may soon be extinct

For many of us, food is more than just sustenance. It's a window into a variety of cultures around the world, or an expression of love that comes from a parent, friend, or significant other. However, what happens when some of the key ingredients in our favorite dishes are no longer available for our use? Well, we may soon find out. Barley is one of many ingredients that are in jeopardy, and it’s all thanks to climate change. This means we will soon have to say goodbye to cool, refreshing beer. It’s being predicted that beer consumption around the world will decline by 16%, while prices for the refreshing beverage are likely to double. The really bad news is that isn't all. Tequila prices are likely to shoot up due to increased demand for the liquor in New York and Tokyo, specifically. While tequila itself might not go extinct, quality tequila may, as the increased pressure on production is not allowing the agave plants to develop to their full maturity. With numerous farmers using immature plants, how long will it be before we're all drinking from the bottom-shelf tequila bottle? And not even hummus is safe! Chickpeas are also facing difficulties in meeting their demand, as temperatures in countries like India (the world's lead exporter of chickpeas) have risen and droughts have become more numerous. These are just a few examples, but there are plenty of other foods that may very well be gone for good, and very soon at that. If you're a big fan of margaritas, hummus, or a nice, cold pint, you better click through this gallery to learn which items you'll need to start buying in bulk before they disappear… forever!

The world's ugliest (but coolest) dogs

The World's Ugliest Dog Contest is an event celebrated annually in Petaluma, California. While it might sound a bit cruel, the competition isn't about making fun of the dogs. In fact, it's about celebrating the unique characteristics of our canine friends. For dogs, beauty isn't always the most important factor. Just think of some of the most popular breeds! From pugs to French bulldogs, it's often the funkiest-looking creatures that are the most beloved. This year, Wild Thang, an unruly eight-year-old Pekingese, was crowned the winner of the 2024 Ugliest Dog Contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma on June 23. Wild Thang had entered the competition three times in the past but was always a runner-up. According to his bio, he contracted the viral disease distemper as a foster rescue which causes his tongue to stick out. His rock star hair, however, is all-natural. As the grand prize winner, Wild Thang received US$5,000 and a trophy, as well as the admiration of the contest's thousands of fans. A scruffy pooch with a lopsided tongue might be the underdog elsewhere, but in this competition, they're the top dog!
