For we human beings, treadmills usually invoke a sense of dread and remembrance of failed New Year's Eve resolutions.
But maybe this video of a penguin in research will link such tortuous exercise devices to something much cuter.

The executive committee chairman of Liberty University's Board of Directors said it was a mistake for Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. to endorse Donald Trump for president, saying that the billionaire's tactics contrast with the Christian values promoted by the institution.
After Falwell Jr. announced his endorsement for the Manhattan real estate mogul in January, he drew the ire of many members of the prominent evangelical school's community even though his endorsement was private and not intended to speak for the university.
Among those disappointed by Falwell Jr.'s endorsement is a former adviser to Falwell Jr.'s father, the late founder of school, Jerry Falwell Sr. more >>
The majority of voters in Liberty University's precinct voted for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz rather than billionaire Donald Trump in Tuesday's GOP primary in Virginia, despite the fact that Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. famously endorsed Trump in January.
Although Trump was victorious in the Virginia Republican primary by winning over 34.7 percent of the vote, he did not fare as well in the Lynchburg-area, which is home to one of the nation's most preeminent evangelical colleges in Liberty University and also home to a small Christian school in Lynchburg College.
Even though Falwell, the son of the late Liberty University founder Jerry Falwell Sr., has been a heavy advocate for Trump since his endorsement and also recorded a statewide robocall attacking Cruz for his "dirty tricks," Trump came in third place in the Lynchburg city precinct. more >>
A fraud case alleging that Donald Trump defrauded thousands of students through the now-defunct Trump University moved forward in New York, and Forbes Magazine says the Republican presidential frontrunner has a history of exaggerating his wealth.
Trump has been named by Forbes Magazine as one of the world's richest people in its 30th annual list. His net worth was estimated at $4.5 billion by Forbes, leaving him 324th amongst the richest people in the world, according to the list.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates was named at the top of the list for a third consecutive year, bringing in a net worth of $75 billion, while Spain's Aamancio Ortego came in second, with business magnate Warren Buffet in third. more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham recently stated his support for a Catholic Archdiocese whose leadership is ending its connection to the Girl Scouts.
In a Facebook post published Tuesday morning, Graham expressed his support for the Archdiocese of St. Louis' opposition to the Girl Scouts over the youth organization's stance on abortion and homosexuality.
"The Girl Scouts organization sure isn't what it used to be! St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson isn't worried about being politically correct in letting people know about it either," wrote Graham. more >>
In a Chicago Tribune article published Monday, I suggested that Wheaton College professors need worldview training. I'm sure that may sound presumptuous, given that most of them hold doctoral degrees, which I do not. Yet, the recent brouhaha sparked by Dr. Larycia Hawkins' statement that Muslims and Christians worship the same God has made it painfully clear that Wheaton's campus is a battleground of competing worldviews. And, if Wheaton College is going to restore its reputation in the Christian community, administrators need to confront these worldview differences head-on.
As Nancy Pearcey explains in Total Truth, a worldview is a like a comprehensive map of reality that helps us navigate life. And, every worldview answers three basic questions: How did we get here? (Origins) What caused human suffering? (Fall) And, how can things be made right again? (Redemption)
For Christians, the answers to these questions are plainly that God created us; sin caused human suffering; and Jesus' death on the cross provides the means of redeeming mankind and reversing the effects of the Fall. more >>
