Army’s Automated Dog Whisperer Will Train Puppies of War


By .
The U.S. military already has a kennel-load of bomb-sniffing dogs. But getting those four-legged weapons-hunters ready for war requires a ton of time and patience from a human trainer. No more, the Army hopes. They want an automated system that can prep dogs and rodents to spot bombs. Good call, Pentagon! As they surely learned on the internets, dogs love computers.
In the military’s latest round of small business research awards, the Army doled out three contracts to create computerized animal coaches. Their plan is to come up with “a rugged automated trainer system” that would prep “large quantities of animals” to seek out explosives and landmines...Continue reading...

"Demand for female bodyguards is on the rise in China, as more high-profile women request their presence at events.
About 30 percent of China's millionaires are women, according to Reuters. And with a growing number of celebrities and entrepreneurs asking for female protection, one training camp is focusing on teaching women how to effectively fend off attackers and keep their clients safe.
A full-time female bodyguard can make about $15,000 per year, and one trainee said she views the nontraditional occupation as an opportunity to "break stereotype."Read here.

Alcohol Brain Damage Alcoholism Brain Damage Alcoholic Dementia Alcoholism And The Brain

image
The relationship between alcoholism and the brain, alcohol brain damage and how alcoholic dementia develops is a difficult one for researchers.
This is due to the very nature of dementia and the hurdles this places on objectivity.
Yet it has been long established that alcoholics are at greater risk of dementia symptoms than those who drink within moderate drinking guidelines or not at all.
It is estimated that 4-20% of dementia cases are brought about by alcohol abuse.
Yet there is good news. Although alcohol dementia is progressive, it can be halted and even reversed.
But, the alcoholic needs to stop drinking alcohol altogether in order for their cognitive abilities to return.
There is with alcoholic dementia a point of no return.
This means that past a certain point the brain is so damaged by alcohol that nothing can be done.Read here.... Alcoholics Dementia, Devastation and Forgiveness:Blog for Mental Health 2012

By Sheila Dabu Nonato, Postmedia News 
A remote First Nations reserve in northern Ontario has declared a state of emergency over alarming rates of prescription drug abuse.

But Health Canada officials say the government is responding swiftly to the crisis.

Russell Wesley, the community's spokesperson, said the Cat Lake First Nation's band council is seeking help from the federal government to control its drug problem.

In a population of 480, there are about 150 registered prescription drug addicts, including one pregnant woman and 120 suspected addicts who are not registered.

The problem began in 2005 and "has been escalating ever since," he said...Continue reading.....                                                                                                                                                                                 "Cat Lake First Nation is an isolated First Nation community accessible by aircraft only.

The executive director of the Canadian Sealers Association (CSA) says the end of the seal hunt would be an economic disaster for rural Newfoundland.
Frank Pinhorn was reacting to comments made by St. John’s MP Ryan Cleary, who told CBC News it’s time to decide if the provincial seal hunt should end.
“We know that the world appetite is not there for seal meat, but the world appetite for seal products, I don’t know if it’s there,” said Cleary. “And you know what? I may be shot for talking about this, and for saying this, but it’s a question we all have to ask.”
Cleary said the province receives a lot of negative publicity for the seal hunt, and the $1 million in annual revenue it generates might not be worth it...Continue reading...

Whale fossils found in driest desert on Earth

 
whale fossil
Chilean researchers have discovered the fossilized remains of more than 75 prehistoric whales in the Atacama Desert, considered to be the driest place on the planet.
Researchers estimate that this group of whales gathered off South America's Pacific Coast more than 2 million years ago, and once they had beached and died, they melded into Chile's emerging desert landscape. More than 20 of the whale skeletons remain perfectly intact...Read here...

Robert Raeburn of Western Australia said, “The whales probably swam there when the whole world was covered in water, about 4000 years ago at the time of Noah. They would then have been stranded when the waters assuaged (drained back) to expose the dry land. … This all makes sense when viewed from a ‘Bible’ perspective.” An email friend suggested the same to Mario Suarez, one of the lead paleontologists. Not surprisingly, this idea generated a deal of web comments..."... Read here...

Rescue stable gives horses a loving home

By Jeremy Warren, The StarPhoenix 
The owners of Paradise Stable Horse Rescue do not have room for all the horses they'd like to save, so they make it as expensive as possible for people at auctions buying livestock for slaughter.
Bunnie and Lawrence Harasym, who have operated the horse rescue for 11 years, can only house so many horses, so when they go to horse auctions they will bid on horses they have no intention of buying to drive up the price for people looking to slaughter horses for European food markets.
"People aren't always aware what happens when their horses go to auction," Bunnie said in an interview at her acreage northwest of Saskatoon. "They're not always going to homes. They're being sent to the meat man."...Continue reading...

Obama hails anniversary of US abortion ruling - Google News

Surrey-Delta Pro-Life Societyhttp://surrey-delta-pro-life.com/ESW/Images/rose.jpgWASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Sunday marked the 39th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion by affirming his backing for the right, for decades one of America's most polarizing issues.
"As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman's health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters," Obama said in his statement.
"I remain committed to protecting a woman's right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right," the president said.
Abortion is invariably a bitterly debated issue every presidential election year, with conservatives eager to repeal the landmark decision and liberals insisting abortion is a fundamental right to be protected at all costs...Continue reading...

Published on Thursday 19 January 2012 10:36 
The issue of animal welfare is very much on people’s minds following the shocking story of Bobby, the donkey foal found starving and neglected in the Fanad area in December. Bobby died soon after being taken into the care of the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary.
The Donegal Democrat spoke to one very dedicated lady who along with the volunteers at Animals in Need cares for an endless stream of pets that require re-homing.
Margaret Plunkett is a native of the Rosses and her love for animals has been with her for as long as she can remember.
“I was always rescuing animals when I was a child. I grew up on a farm and when the calves had to go to the fair it broke my heart. And I used to help chickens that had been ‘put aside’ to escape, even though I would get told off.
“Back then helping animals just wasn’t done. When I would see an animal that needed help I used to wonder why it affected me so much. As I grew older I realised that what I had was a gift, a gift from God to love his creation.”...Continue reading...

Crossing the Bar by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
  And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
  When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crost the bar.Read here.          Yesterday afternoon a friend passed away. A friend that enjoyed a game of chess, a friend that shared a laugh. I am missing my friend today.

Hannah Arendt and the Origins of Israelophobia

http://cloud.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/hannah.jpg"In last year’s extensive commentary marking the 50th anniversary of the Eichmann trial, one name—Hannah Arendt—was mentioned nearly as often as that of the trial’s notorious defendant. It’s hard to think of another major twentieth-century event so closely linked with one author’s interpretation of it. Arendt, who fled Nazi Germany at 27, was already an internationally renowned scholar and public intellectual when she arrived in Jerusalem in April 1961 to cover the trial for The New Yorker. Arendt’s five articles, which were then expanded into the 1963 book Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, proved hugely controversial. Many Jewish readers—and non-Jews, too—were shocked by three principal themes in Arendt’s report: her portrayal of Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion as the cynical puppet master manipulating the trial to serve the state’s Zionist ideology; her assertion that Eichmann was a faceless, unthinking bureaucrat, a cog in the machinery of the Final Solution rather than one of its masterminds; and her accusation that leaders of the Judenr√§te (Jewish councils) in Nazi-occupied Europe had engaged in “sordid and pathetic” behavior, making it easier for the Nazis to manage the logistics of the extermination process..."Continue reading...
