first_imgNeed some comic relief this Valentine’s Day? A zoo will name a cockroach after your ex and feed it to a meerkat. If you’re already dreading February 14, maybe this will provide a pick-me-up: the El Paso Zoo will name a cockroach after your ex and then feed it to a meerkat on a live stream that can be viewed on the zoo’s website and their Facebook page. To submit your ex’s name, just message the zoo on their Facebook page. They’ll post the first and last name initial of your ex around the meerkat cage beginning Feb. 11. “This is a fun way to get the community involved in our daily enrichment activities,” El Paso Zoo event coordinator Sarah Borrego told CBS News. “The meerkats love to get cockroaches as a snack and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by feeding them a cockroach named after your ex!” Outdoor Gear Builders (OGB), the first gear builder association of its kind, will hold their sixth annual Get in Gear Fest on March 21. The festival includes gear demos, new gear sneak peeks, opportunities to meet gear makers in person, and a customer appreciation sale; plus music, food trucks, beer and more. In addition to the activities, the Get in Gear Fest will host a raffle for OGB member gear prizes to raise money for Pisgah Conservancy.  Microsoft pledges to become carbon-negative by 2030  Mark your calendar: Outdoor Gear Builders will hold Get in Gear Fest March 21 at Salvage Station in Ashevillecenter_img In addition to becoming carbon-negative by 2030, Microsoft has also vowed to pay back all the carbon it has emitted since the company was founded in 1975, with a goal of reaching that milestone by 2050.
