martin shervington1,144,093You know I spend most of my time on Google+, right? Well, increasingly I've been valuing the role of using Twitter alongside - the cross platform connections make a huge difference to building relationships. So, I thought you all may like to dig a little deeper and there is no one better to ask in than @108947920975167979671 on this one as he is just bringing out a new edition to his book. He has a solid business view of social as well. So, hope to see you on Wednesday; and we will be taking questions so please ask away! About the book: The book was initially created to solve a problem. The most common question am I asked is, "Can you help me understand Twitter?"  That is just not something that can be addressed over a cup of coffee! So I wrote this book, first to help my students, but it caught on has loyal fans all around the world.  The Tao of Twitter teaches you the practical MINDSET for success, not just a bunch of theoretical or technical suggestions. If you follow the strategy in the book, I know it can work for you because I have seen it impact hundreds of lives. The Tao of Twitter is beyond a book. It's a movement. Welcome to a global community that is unleashing the power of this amazing communication platform to connect to the world and drive new business benefits in wonderful and unexpected ways! The Tao of Twitter! (And the Te of Google+ :D)2014-07-30 18:00:0092  
Stephan Hovnanian40,632*Social Proof - The Ultimate Showdown!* Most of us have heard the phrase "social proof" and seen/read discussions on the value of "engagement" in getting additional audience attention and actions. But how relevant is social proof? Is social proof really a factor, and if so, a good factor? This battle is between two professionals, one standing on the side of Social Proof, and the other believing that much of it is malarkey: *In the Red Corner: @107665939201638457855:* Dustin is a proponent of social proof, saying that "if you saw two restaurants on the street, one with a line out the door, and one without, which would you want to go to for dinner?" Get Dustin's full thoughts on social proof in his popular blog post, _This Changes Everything_ (http://goo.gl/P5t8GW) *In the Blue Corner, @106704368739672674589:*  In David's eyes, how your audience is earned will make a huge difference in the value that you derive from the audience you create, and whether it returns value to your goals (ROI) or is simply an exercise in Ego. In other words, seeing/experiencing value is more important than social proof, both for businesses and customers. Get David's thoughts on earned audiences here (http://goo.gl/uw5sDY) *Your Moderator, @105076725141939280120:*  Stephan is going to play Switzerland here, and hopefully keep these two passionate businessmen from jumping through their respective screens and getting physical. In the immortal words of the ref from Rocky IV, _"watch the low blows, and the rabbit punches. In case of a knockdown, go to the corner I tell you to and wait until I tell you to come out."_ *You!* We want to hear from you, which is more important, social proof, or tangible value, or something in between? Weigh in on the comments, shares, you name it. Bring your friends, grab the popcorn, and let's have it out!Social Proof - The Ultimate Showdown!2014-07-17 21:00:00123

Lisa Engles6,210*Link to the program mentioned in this hangout www.hangoutsforvisionaryleaders.com/program* *Coaches, Authors and Speakers: Go From Ground Zero to Hangout Hero* Have you spent a lot of time, energy and money spinning your wheels, trying to spread your message and build your audience using social media marketing, but haven’t seen the results that you hoped for?  Do you feel disconnected from the very people you want to reach?  Well, you’re not alone.  In fact, most heart-centered entrepreneurs and visionary leaders that I talk to all say the same thing: " I feel disconnected from the people I want to reach"  and : “I don’t like using social media, but I know I’m supposed to.”  And less than a year ago, I was one of them. ​I was frustrated because there was something about social media that didn’t feel right to me.  I was very resistant to using it.  It felt useless to me because honestly, I was a small fish in a big pond of thousands of 'experts' who were using all types of tactics that felt pushy and in your face. If that's what I needed to do to get seen and get clients, then no thanks.  It's just not who I am. Then one day, I had an ‘ah-ha” moment.  I realized that the reason I was feeling so much resistance was because at the core of who I am and what I do as a coach, author and speaker is - connect and communicate. In that moment I saw how social media was actually putting a divide between me and ideal audience and was keeping me from getting noticed and ultimately, getting clients because there was a lack of authentic connection and communication.  Think about it, how much can you really connect with people when you’re limited posting a 140 characters, a link or an image?  The lack of authentic engagement was not only keeping me from effectively communicating my message, it was keeping me from connecting with my ideal audience and it was ultimately keeping me from making money doing what I love to do.  So I made it my goal to figure out how I could reach others with my message in a way that felt real and that created an opportunity for authentic connection.  And that’s when I decided to look into google hangouts on air.   Within 6 months of using hangouts on air (HOA) I was finally able to break the barriers between me and my ideal clients, get the support of influencers both in google plus and in my niche, establish my expertise and build a loyal following of people who want what I have to offer… all things I had been unsuccessful in accomplishing before. So, in this hangout I want to show you how you can have this type of success using hangouts as well.    #RonnieBincer  has been a big piece of my 'winning' equation, so he'll be joining us in this hangout where you'll: *Learn the 4 critical steps that will take you from ground zero to hangout hero (or shero)* *Discover how to use hangouts on air to connect and communicate with your ideal audience in real time so that you create trust and meaningful relationships* *Learn how usHangout Strategies for Visionary Leaders2014-04-14 20:00:0094

martin shervington1,144,093*Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?* We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future. Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too! *What is 'Youtility' all about?* Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success. You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?” If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility." Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0076

Jim Shankle1,792It's always a pleasure hearing +David Amerland discuss _*"The GSS/G+ Connection"*_ because it's a subject area with many facets. For mobile viewers click on this YouTube Link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S76tXQ5qZ30  The time for the Event is translated to your local time zone. As a reference, it starts at 7:30 PM ET. _Google Semantic Search_ and its direct connection to, and support by, Google+ (what I am starting to call _"The GSS/G+ Connection"_) is remarkably deep and important. Yet David explains it with such simplicity, ease, and freshness that it's very understandable and enjoyable no matter your level of experience. Unquestionably, there is a wealth of material in this subject matter which means David will never be over-exposed or fail to peel back yet another layer of this *very large* onion every time he appears in an HOA. Thursday night he is joining my _MBA Marketing Strategies_ class at John Brown University (Rogers Center in Northwest Arkansas) via Google Hangouts On Air. David will explain _The GSS/G+ Connection_ from an MBA's and marketer's perspective. He will also introduce some unique "life applications" that should be pursued as an extension of the emerging power of GSS and Google+. Our session will start at 6:30 PM CST for those interested in seeing Marketing Strategies examined from David's unique perspective. *Two facts backing my conclusion that David has struck a deep vein...* 1) He had 22,000 Followers when I started communicating with him 5-6 weeks ago. Today his Followers number over 150,000, and 2) His game-changing book _Google Semantic Search_ - 230 pages (including an extensive Bibliography for those who want to explore the subject even further) that mines (as David calls it) a "semantically dense" subject. Proof that GSS/G+ is a critically important subject for MBA students (everyone really) was on display last week. Friday for an enjoyable and fast-paced hour, David, +Mark Traphagen  +Ronnie Bincer   (aka "The Hangout Helper") and +martin shervington  discussed how Google+ is changing behavior on the internet - to the better - https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c0n7nndld5gebbjat1of0dhb124  Even after a full hour, there were many unaddressed questions - reflecting that the session could have continued for the rest of the day. Based on the enjoyable chemistry of these four professionals, most their large audience probably would not have left them had it continued. Come join us Thursday night to continue the discussion. #mktgmba  MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland Explores "The GSS/G+ Connection" at John Brown University2013-11-08 01:30:0064

Ronnie Bincer112,405*Learn about the New HOA Q&A App - bring more interaction to HOAs* Hangouts on Air can be very interactive - It is like "Yelling at the TV" and _The TV can answer back_ to paraphrase a friend.

Today in History: U.S.S.R. Explodes its First Atomic Bomb, 1949
On August 29, 1949 — 66 years ago today — the U.S.S.R. successfully detonated its first atomic bomb (code named: “First Lightning”; also known as “RDS-1” or “Device 501”; and as “Joe-1” by the West). The bomb had a yield of 22 kilotons and bore a close resemblance to the plutonium-based “Fat Man” bomb that the U.S. had dropped on Japan in 1945 to effectuate a rapid end to World War II. The resemblance between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. atomic bombs was close, because it was later determined that Soviet espionage had secured details for its bomb from the U.S. atomic bomb development “Manhattan Project” and the “Trinity” test on July 16, 1945 (for more on the “Trinity” test, please see https://plus.google.com/+BradAcker/posts/NhUGZtRVD7C).

Today in History: U.S.S.R. Explodes its First Atomic Bomb, 1949

The bomb had a yield of 22 kilotons and bore a close resemblance to the plutonium-based “Fat Man” bomb that the U.S. had dropped on Japan in 1945 to effectuate a rapid end to World War II. The resemblance between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. atomic bombs was close, because it was later determined that Soviet espionage had secured details for its bomb from the U.S. atomic bomb development “Manhattan Project” and the “Trinity” test on July 16, 1945 (for more on the “Trinity” test, please see https://plus.google.com/+BradAcker/posts/NhUGZtRVD7C).

Klaus Fuchs, a brilliant German scientist who fled to Britain as the Nazis rose to power in the early 1930s, was sent by the British government to the U.S. to collaborate on the the U.S. Manhattan Project to develop an atomic bomb. On March 1, 1950, Fuchs was convicted of passing atomic bomb secrets from the U.S. Manhattan Project to Soviet intelligence. As Fuchs matured, he had embraced the communist ideology as defined by Karl Marx, and thus was motivated to assist the Soviet Union, which he began to regard as his “true fatherland,” especially after Hitler’s Germany had attacked the Soviet Union. Fuchs received a 14-year prison sentence for treason. On June 13,1959 (after serving 9 years of his sentence), Fuchs was released and allowed to emigrate to Dresdon, East Germany, where he resumed his scientific career. Fuchs died in East Berlin on January 28, 1988 — before the Berlin Wall came down (in late 1989). [The KGB also stated in 1991 that it received additional intelligence from a scientist inside the Los Alamos, New Mexico, atomic research facility.]

On this day in 1949, with the detailed information that Fuchs had provided, the U.S.S.R. tested its copy of the U.S. “Trinity” plutonium-based atomic bomb in a remote site at Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan. To measure the effects of the blast, Soviet scientists constructed buildings, bridges, and other civilian structures around where the blast was to occur. Hundreds of animals were also placed in cages in the vicinity, in order to test the effects of nuclear radiation on human-like animals. Needless to say now, the atomic explosion on this day destroyed the structures and incinerated the animals.

One direct observer from a northern perspective about 9 miles from the blast site recorded his observations:
On top of the tower an unbearably bright light blazed up. For a moment or so it dimmed and then with new force began to grow quickly. The white fireball engulfed the tower and the workshop and expanding rapidly, changing color it rushed upwards. The blast wave at the base, sweeping in its path structures, stone houses, machines, rolled like a billow from the center, mixing up stones, logs of wood, pieces of metal and dust into one chaotic mass. The fireball, rising and revolving, turned orange, red. Then dark streaks appeared. Streams of dust, fragments of brick and board were drawn in after it, as into a funnel.

Shortly after the Soviet test, U.S. scientists recorded seismic activity from inside the Soviet Union that could have only come from a nuclear test. Further scientific checking indicated that this conclusion was correct. Armed with conclusive data, U.S. president Harry S. Truman informed the American people on

Today in History: Android Market (later Google Play) announced, 2008
On August 28, 2008 — 7 years ago today — Google announced Android Market, an online center where people would be able to find, buy, download, and rate apps and other content for mobile phones based on the Android open-source operating system. Google described this new digital distribution platform — a clear competitor to the Apple Store (and AmazonApps store) — as “similar to YouTube” as “content can debut in the marketplace after only 3 simple steps: [1] register as a merchant, [2] upload and describe...content and [3] publish it.” Google said that it chose the term “market,” rather than “store,” because Google felt that “developers should have an open and unobstructed environment to make their content available.”

Android Market was initially released to the public on October 22, 2008 (about 2 months after the announcement this day 7 years ago); it was merged into Google Play on March 6, 2012 along with Google Music and Google eBookstore. Statista.com reported in 2015 that the apps on Google Play had grown to a larger number than the apps available on iTunes.

Today in History: First U.S. Oil Well Drilled, 1859
On August 27, 1859 — 156 years ago today — an epic event in the history of the oil industry occurred in Titusville, Pennsylvania: After a year and a half of effort, innovator Edwin L. Drake and his business partner, George Bissell, struck a pool of oil and the oil industry was born [in the U.S., at least; 11 years earlier, a Russian engineer, F.N. Semyenov, is credited with drilling the world’s first oil well in 1848 in the Aspheron Peninsula in what is now Azerbaijan]. Drake harnessed the power of a 6 HP Long John engine and a stationary boiler to activate the drill’s boring capability.

Before Semyenov and Drake had implemented mechanisms for boring into the ground to extract oil, oil was collected by gathering it from “oil seeps” or shallow holes dug where it was collecting in pools. Most practical oil up to Drake’sfirst success... altro »

Drake and his business partner, George Bissell, struck a pool of oil and the oil industry was born [in the U.S., at least; 11 years earlier, a Russian engineer, F.N. Semyenov, is credited with drilling the world’s first oil well in 1848 in the Aspheron Peninsula in what is now Azerbaijan]. Drake harnessed the power of a 6 HP Long John engine and a stationary boiler to activate the drill’s boring capability.

Before Semyenov and Drake had implemented mechanisms for boring into the ground to extract oil, oil was collected by gathering it from “oil seeps” or shallow holes dug where it was collecting in pools. Most practical oil up to Drake’s first successful well was obtained from the blubber of whales, and one reason Drake was drilling for oil in the ground was that whale oil had become expensive and its supply was dwindling, as aggressive whaling had pushed many whale species to the brink of extinction.

Unfortunately for Drake who is known as the “father of the petroleum industry,” Drake did not patent his innovative conductor mechanism, a “drive pipe,” that helped to prevent a well’s walls from collapsing, and so he never became wealthy. Oil wells copying Drake's method proliferated, and the proliferation of successful oil wells led to the decline of oil prices. Drake subsequently lost all of his savings on speculative oil drilling. Moreover, in the years after his initial success, Drake may have developed ALS before it had been known as a disease [my speculation], because he lost much of his motor ability in later life. Because Drake could not work, friends collected money for his family, and the Pennsylvania legislature voted to pay him and his family a stipend of $1,500 per month until he died.

Today in History: Cooking Pioneer Fannie Farmer Opened Her School
first school to focus on healthy eating and serious measurements of ingredients
On August 23, 1902 — 113 years ago today — pioneering cookbook author Fannie Farmer opened the “Miss Farmer’s School of Cookery” in Boston, MA (in Huntington Chambers, 30 Huntington Avenue, Boston, adjacent to the Boston Public Library — now the site of Westin Copley Hotel). Fannie was a graduate of Boston’s first cooking school, “The Boston Cooking School,” which was founded in 1879 by the “Woman’s Educational Association of Boston” in order “to offer instruction in cooking to those who wished to earn their livelihoods as cooks, or who would make practical use of such information in their families.” At the Boston Cooking School, Fannie studied under Mary J.

Today in History: Cooking Pioneer Fannie Farmer Opened Her School
first school to focus on healthy eating and serious measurements of ingredients
On August 23, 1902 — 113 years ago today — pioneering cookbook author Fannie Farmer opened the “Miss Farmer’s School of Cookery” in Boston, MA (in Huntington Chambers, 30 Huntington Avenue, Boston, adjacent to the Boston Public Library — now the site of Westin Copley Hotel). Fannie was a graduate of Boston’s first cooking school, “The Boston Cooking School,” which was founded in 1879 by the “Woman’s Educational Association of Boston” in order “to offer instruction in cooking to those who wished to earn their livelihoods as cooks, or who would make practical use of such information in their families.” At the Boston Cooking School, Fannie studied under Mary J. Lincoln, who researched and wrote Mrs. Lincoln’s Boston Cook Book: What to Do and What Not to Do in Cooking, a textbook used primarily for her students (so they would not have to copy recipes). 

Fannie graduated in 1889 from The Boston Cooking School. Because Fannie was one of the school’s top students, Fannie became assistant director of the school, and then director of the school in 1894. Fannie revised and expanded Mrs. Lincoln’s cookbook, and Fannie built on Mrs. Lincoln’s detailed and methodical approach to recipe writing, including careful measurements for each ingredient. During her time at The Boston Cooking School, Fannie began to understand the association between eating certain foods and good health. Fannie took a nutrition course at Harvard Medical School to learn as much as she could about healthy eating. Fannie’s version of the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book in 1896 became the best-selling cookbook of the era. After 8 years as director, Fannie resigned from the school in 1902 to open her own cooking school on this day in 1902. Fannie’s School lasted until 1944.

Project Sunroof
Google keeps focusing its resources on helping us save energy and helping us use renewable energy.

Introducing Project Sunroof - new from Google! (just over 1 min)
"Project Sunroof uses information that’s in Google Maps to figure out how much sun falls on a roof...

...and takes into account stuff like the angle of the roof, the weather, and obstructions like trees and chimneys. Then it uses those measurements to figure out how many panels you’d probably need and how much you could save on your electric bill, including solar incentives in your area. You can see how buying or leasing panels affects your savings, and then send your estimate to installers in your area, instantly."

In a blog post today, Google co-founder Larry Page announced a massive restructuring of the company, instituting Sundar Pichai as CEO and shifting himself and co-founder Sergey Brin to a larger holding company called Alphabet. As CEO and President of Alphabet, Page and Brin will oversee Google as well as affiliated companies like the life-extension project Calico and a drone delivery venture called Wing. Alphabet will also direct Google's early-stage funding operations, dubbed Capital and Ventures. Under the new organization, each of those operations will have its own CEO and leadership, while Pichai and Google retain control of search, ads, maps, the Google Play Store, YouTube, and Android.___Did you hear the news?

It has been hot here — around Boston — in the 80s (°F), and I needed a nap to get refreshed from the heat. Minky was in the living room playing as my eyes closed. The air conditioning was on, and the next moment i could recall about an hour later was waking up with hot calves! Minky had made a space between my legs to gain some snuggling heat. Minky prefers warmth!

Minky Watching Birdies On Her “Porch”
Minky lived in a tiny cage with her litter pan and food dish for many months. It has taken her some time to get used to her much bigger apartment cage. But she now enjoys the fresh air while watching birdies and speeding cars from her “porch” just below her top bunk bed, which is slightly more secluded (with white towel to her right above the binders, haha). Minky let me know that she would appreciate a porch and bunk bed in those positions (you know, via paw language and those screamy tones).

Gorilla reunites with man who raised Gorilla
This is a touching story (only 4 minute video) about Damian Aspinall, who raised a Gorilla for years and then released him to a wildlife conservation area in West Africa. The Gorilla had been exceptionally unfriendly to humans who had tried to approach him while in this wildlife area. When Damian returned 5 years after the Gorilla's release, their reunited experience is shown in the video.

Clever Dog

The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris, or Canis familiaris) is a member of the Canidae family of the mammalian order Carnivora. The term "domestic dog" is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties. The dog was the first domesticated animal and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and pet animal in human history. The word "dog" can also refer to the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word "bitch" which refers to the female of the species.

Recent studies of "well-preserved remains of a dog-like canid from the Razboinichya Cave" in the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia concluded that a particular instance of early wolf domestication approximately 33,000 years ago did not result in modern dog lineages, possibly because of climate disruption during the Last Glacial Maximum. The authors postulate that at least several such incipient events have occurred. A study of fossil dogs and wolves in Belgium, Ukraine, and Russia tentatively dates domestication from 14,000 years ago to more than 31,700 years ago. Another recent study has found support for claims of dog domestication between 14,000 and 16,000 years ago, with a range between 9,000 and 34,000 years ago, depending on mutation rate assumptions. Dogs' value to early human hunter-gatherers led to them quickly becoming ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "man's best friend" in the Western world. In some cultures, however, dogs are also a source of meat. In 2001, there were estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world.

Most breeds of dog are at most a few hundred years old, having been artificially selected for particular morphologies and behaviors by people for specific functional roles. Through this selective breeding, the dog has developed into hundreds of varied breeds, and shows more behavioral and morphological variation than any other land mammal. For example, height measured to the withers ranges from 15.2 centimetres (6.0 in) in the Chihuahua to about 76 cm (30 in) in the Irish Wolfhound; color varies from white through grays (usually called "blue") to black, and browns from light (tan) to dark ("red" or "chocolate") in a wide variation of patterns; coats can be short or long, coarse-haired to wool-like, straight, curly, or smooth. It is common for most breeds to shed this coat.


Etymology and related terminology

Dog is the common use term that refers to members of the subspecies Canis lupus familiaris (canis, "dog"; lupus, "wolf"; familiaris, "of a household" or "domestic"). The term can also be used to refer to a wider range of related species, such as the members of the genus Canis, or "true dogs", including the wolf, coyote, and jackals, or it can refer to the members of the tribe Canini, which would also include the African wild dog, or it can be used to refer to any member of the family Canidae, which would also include the foxes, bush dog, raccoon dog, and others. Some members of the family have dog in their common names, such as the raccoon dog and the African wild dog. A few animals have dog in their common names but are not canids, such as the prairie dog.

The English word dog comes from Middle English dogge, from Old English docga, a "powerful dog breed". The term may possibly derive from Proto-Germanic *dukkōn, represented in Old English finger-docce ("finger-muscle"). The word also shows the familiar petname diminutive ga also seen in frogga "frog", picga "pig", stagga "stag", wicga "beetle, worm", among others. The term dog may ultimately derive from the earliest layer of Proto-Indo-European vocabulary, reflecting the role of the dog as the earliest domesticated animal.

In 14th-century England, hound (from Old English: hund) was the general word for all domestic canines, and dog referred to a subtype of hound, a group including the mastiff. It is believed this "dog" type was so common, it eventually became the prototype of the category "hound". By the 16th century, dog had become the general word, and hound had begun to refer only to types used for hunting. Hound, cognate to German Hund, Dutch hond, common Scandinavian hund, and Icelandic hundur, is ultimately derived from the Proto-Indo-European *kwon "dog", found in Sanskrit kukuur (कुक्कुर), Welsh ci (plural cwn), Latin canis, Greek kýōn, and Lithuanian šuõ.

In breeding circles, a male canine is referred to as a dog, while a female is called a bitch (Middle English bicche, from Old English bicce, ultimately from Old Norse bikkja). A group of offspring is a litter. The father of a litter is called the sire, and the mother is called the dam. Offspring are, in general, called pups or puppies, from French poupée, until they are about a year old. The process of birth is whelping, from the Old English word hwelp (cf. German Welpe, Dutch welp, Swedish valpa, Icelandic hvelpur). The term "whelp" can also be used to refer to the young of any canid, or as a (somewhat archaic) alternative to "puppy".
Taxonomy
See also: Subspecies of Canis lupus

In 1753, the father of modern biological taxonomy, Carl Linnaeus, listed among the types of quadrupeds familiar to him, the Latin word for dog, canis. Among the species within this genus, Linnaeus listed the fox, as Canis vulpes, wolves (Canis lupus), and the domestic dog, (Canis canis). In later editions, Linnaeus dropped Canis canis and greatly expanded his list of the Canis genus of quadrupeds, and by 1758 included alongside the foxes, wolves, and jackals and many more terms that are now listed as synonyms for domestic dog, including aegyptius (hairless dog), aquaticus, (water dog), and mustelinus (literally "badger dog"). Among these were two that later experts have been widely used for domestic dogs as a species: Canis domesticus and, most predominantly, Canis familiaris, the "common" or "familiar" dog.

The domestic dog was accepted as a species in its own right until overwhelming evidence from behavior, vocalizations, morphology, and molecular biology led to the contemporary scientific understanding that a single species, the gray wolf, is the common ancestor for all breeds of domestic dogs. In recognition of this fact, the domestic dog was reclassified in 1993 as Canis lupus familiaris, a subspecies of the gray wolf Canis lupus, by the Smithsonian Institution and the American Society of Mammalogists. C. l. familiaris is listed as the name for the taxon that is broadly used in the scientific community and recommended by ITIS, although Canis familiaris is a recognised synonym.

Since that time, C. domesticus and all taxa referring to domestic dogs or subspecies of dog listed by Linnaeus, Johann Friedrich Gmelin in 1792, and Christian Smith in 1839, lost their subspecies status and have been listed as taxonomic synonyms for Canis lupus familiaris.

Damn, these are good.

"Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal."
~ T. S. Eliot

The word "steal" has so many meanings, from funny to serious, and from good to evil. This fun video of a dog stealing muffins is one illustration. But the word immediately brings to mind the incredible album "Steal Away" by Charlie Haden and Hank Jones, two jazz artists who have now passed away, but will never be forgotten for their simplicity of touch, and depth of feeling. Here is a link to find out more about the record (buy it or stream it! It's incredible): http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steal_Away_(album)

When it comes to dogs, I have to get on my soapbox. My neighbor down south had a chained up dog that they left for two weeks in 100-degree heat. A neighbor came twice a day with water and food. Up north, we lived near dogs that are in a pen outside that is the size of a chicken coop. Other places I have visited in the world, I have seen dogs ganging up at night in the streets or chained to a stone outside a home.

What is our responsibility to these lovely animals? I grant that not everyone has to treat their animals with the deep respect we do (our Golden Retriever, Maria, sleeps in our bed), but isn't there something we owe to these wonderful friends who co-evolved with us?

I hope and pray for peace in the Middle East, and for comfort to all of the animals and people who are suffering around the world.

Golden retrievers are a sociable, people-loving breed that make great pets for families with young children. They are medium- to large-sized dogs that weigh between 50 and 80 pounds. Aside from their amiable personalities, golden retrievers are also obedient and relatively easy to train. Unfortunately, like many other recognized breeds, golden retrievers have their share of genetic weaknesses and caring for them can be high maintenance. Exercise, interaction and regular visits to a veterinarian are all necessary to keep your dog healthy and happy.

Step 1:
Acclimate your golden retriever to his new environment slowly when you bring him home. Puppies tend to adapt to new surroundings quicker than adults, but it is a good idea to confine your new dog to a single room or floor for his first few days. While golden retrievers are rarely aggressive, the stress of a recent move may cause him to react unexpectedly if you startle him. Feed your dog the same type of food that he ate before you began to care for him. If you want to switch food brands, do it by slowly mixing the new brand with the old, increasing the portion of new food each day.

Step 2:
Monitor your dog's behavior for the first few weeks after you introduce him to the household. Both puppies and adults may have a disease or medical condition that is not yet apparent, so it is important to watch for signs of pain, lethargy, lack of appetite and aggressiveness. Consult a veterinarian if you notice unusual or suspicious behavior. For golden retrievers, the four most important areas to monitor are their hips, elbows, eyes and heart, according to the Golden Retriever Club of America. The breed has a genetic predisposition towards medical difficulties in these areas.

Step 3:
Exercise your golden retriever every day. The breed is known for its energy and playfulness, and goldens need some rigorous activity to get the excitement out of their system. Throw a ball or stick for your dog to fetch for about 20 minutes twice a day, or facilitate a similar workout for your pet. This may seem like a big time investment, but it is a necessary part of your dog's daily life. Golden retrievers that don't get enough exercise time are likely to pester their owners or damage objects inside the house out of boredom, according to Gaylan's Golden Retrievers.

Step 4:
Take your dog to a veterinarian for a checkup at least once a year. Golden retrievers have various genetic weaknesses that expose them to various ailments, including cancer and bleeding disorders. They are also susceptible to joint dysplasia in both their front and hind legs. One of the most important parts of a golden retriever is his heart examination. Retrievers have a natural tendency to have heart disease, and the symptoms may be impossible to notice for a dog owner without medical training.

Step 5:
Brush your dog's entire body several times a week to keep tangles from matting his hair. Brushing more often keeps your dog comfortable, particularly in the summer, and helps prevent your dog's hair from shedding all over the house. You can also trim your dog's hair with scissors or take him to a grooming parlor several times a year to thin and neaten his coat. Bathe your dog in a bathtub with room temperature water and canine shampoo as necessary.

Step 6:
Examine your dog's teeth every few months by gently lifting his lips with your index finger. Wash your hands thoroughly or wear disposable gloves before touching your dog's mouth. Consult your veterinarian if your dog has unusually bad breath for an extended period of time, or if his teeth begin to discolor. You can brush your dog's teeth on a semi-daily basis at home, or take him to a specialist for cleanings several times a year. Only use toothpaste designed for dogs, although you can use a normal toothbrush. Feed your dog hard treats instead of soft ones to reduce tartar buildup and bad breath.

Our history is full of silent heroes: people who did something to change the world, without great fanfare. Nicholas Winton's story only came to light in 1988, when his wife found an old scrapbook of his in the attic and pressed him about it. (Not that he had been idle in the years before that; he had been knighted five years earlier for his work for refugees around the world)

The world lost one of its great men today. But thanks to him, it has nearly a thousand more.
