    Legal rights for animals?? Expect Stephen Colbert to be suitably shocked, horrified and appalled when, in character as the classic right-wing bloviator, he welcomes Steven Wise of the Nonhuman Rights Project as his special guest, Thursday evening, on The Colbert Report. The Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP) is seeking to have four chimpanzees – Tommy, Kiko, Hercules and Leo – recognized as "legal persons" with the capacity for, at least, the fundamental right to bodily liberty. (If and when the courts recognize this, any or all of them could be moved to sanctuaries.) Colbert, arguably…

    "In a few years, it will all be over, and the human race will have divided in twain. There is no way back, and no future for the world you know. All the hopes and dreams of your race are ended now. You have given birth to your successors, and it is your tragedy that you will never understand them – will never even be able to communicate with their minds. Indeed they will not possess minds as you know them. They will be a single entity, as you yourselves are the sums of your myriad cells. You will not think them human, and you will be right."                    …

    (This is one of a series of posts exploring how, as chaos grows around the world and a Sixth Extinction takes hold, a new kind of collective consciousness may be emerging among certain kinds of people – and what this may mean.) One evening, in the fall of 1995, when I was checking the message boards of our CompuServe forum (remember those old online services?!), the following suddenly appeared: "We are a group of Serbs and Croats ..." Wait. A "group of Serbs and Croats"? There was no such thing. A dreadful ethnic war was raging between these two people in Bosnia. They were mortal enemies.

    Once you've accepted that Planet Earth has entered a Sixth Great Extinction – one that's irreversible and that will consume most, if not all, species, including our own – the question becomes: What now? Where does this leave you? And what do you do with the time remaining? Most people, of course, haven't accepted that we're already well into a major extinction event. They prefer either to remain in complete denial or to pretend to themselves that human ingenuity and technology will somehow ride to the rescue. (In fact, more technology almost invariably goes hand-in-hand with more…

    The original photo bomb? A baby elephant joins Daphne Sheldrick for tea in the early days of the Elephant Orphanage. At the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Kenya, nobody has ever used a bullhook or a million-volt electrical prod. The very idea would be unthinkable. Daphne Sheldrick, 80 years old today, founded the orphanage in 1977 in memory of her husband, David. (Together, they had already helped create Kenya's famous Tsavo National Park – one of the last refuges for elephant, rhinos and other endangered wildlife.) The orphanage, now run by daughter Angela, has raised hundreds of…

  • 15-year analysis of blue whale range off California finds conflict with shipping lanes

    23 Jul 2014 | 11:17 am
    A comprehensive analysis of the movements of blue whales off the West Coast found that their favored feeding areas are bisected by heavily used shipping lanes, increasing the threat of injury and mortality. But moving the shipping lanes off Los Angeles and San Francisco to slightly different areas -- at least, during summer and fall when blue whales are most abundant -- could significantly decrease the probability of ships striking the whales.

  • Major impact of climate change on Antarctic fur seals

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:14 am
    Genetic analysis of Antarctic fur seals, alongside decades of in-depth monitoring, has provided unique insights into the effect of climate change on a population of top-predators. The findings show that the seals have significantly altered in accordance with changes in food availability that are associated with climate conditions. Despite a shift in the population towards 'fitter' individuals, this fitness is not passing down through generations, leaving the population in decline.

    Simon In The Pasture When I come out in the morning, Simon is almost always lying in the pasture by the gate, waiting for me. I usually get a raucous bray and then he gets up and waits for his carrot. Simon's legs are still twisted and sore, a legacy of his ordeal at his other farm. I love seeing him out in the pasture, soaking up the sun, contemplating the world, waiting for me. There is no better way to start any day than to have a donkey waiting to help you get started.

Her hospice career was cut short when various food earmarked for hospice patients vanished during her visits. I never actually caught her doing it, but there were sometimes tell-tale traces, indisputable evidence. Lenore is a therapy dog at heart, but her style differs from Red. She likes to hang around, come and lick the back of my legs, wag her tail, bring me her stuffed animals, sometimes bits of dead animals and things too revolting to mention. Labs are not into fine…

    By Jason Bittel Liquid loophole: California is in its third year of drought, and by state law districts must report their water consumption and well levels. But Nestle’s Arrowhead bottled water division has found a way around all that silly reporting: it buys its water from the Morongo Tribe, which is technically a sovereign nation and thus, not beholden to California’s laws. So how much water are we talking about? In 2009, the Nestle plant consumed 244 million gallons (about the equivalent of 480 homes annually).

You’d encounter them along streams and fence lines and the backcountry roads that always made me carsick. What I didn’t realize as a kid was how much of my family history was intertwined with those hidden gas lines. My great-great-grandfather, William Dodd, helped lay some of the first pipe across the state, working for a subsidiary of Standard Oil at a time when John D.

According to new research, the famously fuzzy relatives of elephants liked living in Greater Cincinnati long before it was trendy -- at the end of the last ice age. A new study shows the ancient proboscideans enjoyed the area so much they likely were year-round residents and not nomadic migrants as previously thought.

    Courtesy of jscreationzs via freedigitalphotos.net Whether you are in sales, marketing or are the owner of a startup company, you will need to give presentations from time to time. Putting together a compelling presentation can take some time, especially if you want to include research and statistics that help you prove your points. You will also need to find a way to present these facts and figures in a way that will keep your audience interested, not put them to sleep. When you want more audience engagement, a PowerPoint presentation can be the key.  If you do not know how to create a…
  • What is Local Online Marketing?

    Barry Welford
    27 Apr 2014 | 11:07 am
    Courtesy of PublicDomainPictures Local online marketing refers to focusing on SEO tactics that will optimize your website based not just on the products and services you offer, but on your physical location. This type of marketing is also referred to as local SEO or location-specific SEO, but all of these terms mean the same thing: optimizing your website so that it beats out your local competition, as well as your online competition. There are two types of customers that use the Internet to find companies: those who are shopping online exclusively, and aren’t going to pay attention, or…
  • The Immediacy of Tomography Software

    Barry Welford
    28 Mar 2014 | 5:08 pm
    Tomography refers to imaging underground formations by sections or sectioning, through the use of any kind of penetrating wave. When companies or individuals shop for EarthImager software, they will find that they have the chance to make the most of the land that they are studying or have purchased. Scientists will be able to survey the land that they are studying in real-time rather than waiting to develop images or for a slow program to put out the images. This equipment is designed to make the work of a tomography scientist or a survey team as simple as possible. Even someone who is not…

    Japan is a nation that has had more than its share of monsters -- well, in the movies anyway. When people started calling the police in Kyoto reporting that they had seen a "monster" near the Kamogawa River it raised more than a few eyebrows. However, the "monster" turned out to be a Japanese Giant Salamander.

    There doesn't seem to be any end to the "Planet of the Apes," film franchise. Not only has there been five flicks (including one remake) and two TV series -- this week, yet another movie opens to break box-office records. However, if we were  ever able to believe the premise behind those stories could come close to being possible some day, we'd also have to believe that apes would eventually be able to talk. But . . .

    It is not unusual for a dog to become a hero, but it may be a bit unusual for a dog to rat out a bad babysitter. That is just what happened when the Jordans noticed that Killian, a black Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd mix, became extremely upset and agitated when the babysitter, 22-year-old Alexis Khan, would arrive for work.

I just finished the book, The Art of Racing in The Rain by Garth Stein. As this book was published in 2009 I’m a little “late to the game” as they say, but I believe this is a timeless novel. What makes it special is that it is narrated through the eyes of Enzo, a dog. Yes, you all know I’m a cat person, but no one can help but fall in love with Enzo. With his humor and love he leads us through the life and dreams of his owner, Denny,…

  • How To Teach Your Dog To Catch

    Alessia
    23 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    If you want to know how to teach your dog to catch something in his mouth, it’s a pretty tedious but easy skill to teach. In a few simple steps your dog should understand the “catch” command, though even without the command he will know to catch using his mouth. 1. Find a soft toy that will easily fit into your dog’s mouth, like a soft ball or a rubber toy. (Teaching this skill with treats will result in a very full dog, as it will most likely take some time to perfect). 2. Have your dog sit in front of you. 3. Toss the toy underhand toward your dog’s mouth, but…

    Usually referred to as a very human condition, acne can actually occur in dogs too. Particularly common in puppies and younger dogs, acne and blackheads can be a canine issue too and just like with people, will sometimes require veterinary treatment. So, how can you tell if your dog has spots or blackheads, and  how should you deal with it if your dog is spotty or appears to be undergoing hormonal skin changes young or old?

  • Little Girl Cries All The Happy Tears Over Her New Puppy

    I remember getting my first dog – we picked her out from a shelter and as soon as I saw her I knew that she was going to be mine. I didn’t cry, maybe because I had cried so many sad tears before that day upon receiving a harsh “NO” every time I asked for a puppy. By the time I finally got Maxi I was all cried out, so happy tears were not a thing. This video however, depicts quite the opposite. Watch as this little girl cries all the happy tears over her new puppy that she receives for her eighth birthday. I don’t think anyone has ever been happier about anything…

    22 Jul 2014 | 8:30 am
    If your dog is growling or snapping, maybe both, it could be due to aggressive tendencies, or it could be the only way he knows how to communicate a certain feeling. Regardless of the reason, the behavior has to be stopped before it escalates to biting, so here are a few tips on how to stop your dog from growling and snapping.   Correct growling and snapping right away. Straight off the bat you should be correcting your dog’s growling and/or snapping with a firm “no” at the onset of the behavior. When he stops growling, reward him with a “good boy”, or in…

         I used to take long car rides to Pennsylvania with my father to visit my grandparents and cousins when I was little. My father and I would listen to music, his music, and talk. I loved listening to my father talk when I was little. His stories were always so exciting the way he told them! He once told me a story about how he almost lost his job because of his big mouth. He explained that I had inherited his big mouth and that I would eventually learn the hard way, just as he had a few times, how not to use it and how to use it for good and bad.

He wanted to do this because he felt I was well known on the forums. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am highly against LEDs. Anyone that I have seen put these things above their tank, I have pretty much watched their coral die off and then I watch them switch back to T5’s or halide’s shortly afterwards. However, I…

    Minette
    17 Jul 2014 | 6:56 am
    I get a lot of questions either asked of me in person, online, via email etc. And one of my biggest fixes for many things is utilizing a crate. Crates help with potty training, they help with chewing, they help give your dog a haven when he needs to get away and they help to give you some sanity when you need a break from watching your puppy or dog. They also keep you safe in your car, and allow you to stay in motels that otherwise don’t allow dogs. In addition, they can keep friends and family happy when you visit; since they know your dog will be taken care of and well behaved at…

On my friends list that relates to someone who doesn’t do “dog training” for a living and just has pets. After all, being a dog trainer, I am “friends” with a lot of other people in my profession; which is nice because it helps keep me current with what is going on out there!

  • Seven Surprising Facts about Moths I Learned on my First Mothing Night

    Lauren Shaffer
    15 Jul 2014 | 10:23 am
    Luna Moth What’s a Mothing Night? Something I had always wanted to try, but never did, was to set up a bright light at night in order to attract moths.  When I heard of other birding friends who did this regularly, I invited them to my house in the woods of Central PA to see what they could attract.  Paul Dennehy, a 9th grade science teacher who has been mothing for a score of years, brought his equipment and set it up in the yard before it got dark. I learned some surprising facts about moths that night! Fact #1 The names are in Latin!  When Peterson’s Field Guide to Moths was…

    After the storm yesterday, I noticed a few hazy patches of vegetation in the water, maybe 25 feet out from shore.  A photograph with a long lens showed what was making the hazy movements.  There were hundreds of damselflies, most in tandem, busily laying their eggs in the vegetation!  These are mostly Powdered Dancers, with a few Bluits joining the massive egg-laying party.  Wikipedia gives an interesting explanation for the Latin name of Powdered Dancer (Argia moesta): The common name refers directly to the male’s pruinosity, appearing to be covered with a powdery blue or grayish…

They often swim with their tails upraised, and unlike other ducks they are able to slowly sink below the surface of the water.  According to allaboutbirds.org, Ruddy Ducks can be very aggressive during breeding season and will even attack rabbits along the shore!  Males perform unusual courtship displays in which they stick their tails straight up while striking their bills against their inflated necks, creating bubbles in the water as air is forced from their…

With Mourning Dove being the only common Dove in our part of the Eastern US, it was fascinating to see doves of all sizes, shapes, and behaviors in Arizona. Inca Dove Inca Dove, the size of a large sparrow, has dark-gray tipped feathers, making them appear scaly. These doves have a square-tipped tail and rufous under the wings, readily seen when flying.  They were often observed by our group feeding on corn at feeding stations.
