Dog lovers know the benefit of having one around, they are very good listeners who never answer back(except for the occasional bark that is). Kids love them and want to have them and who wouldn’t want to have one of these cute and cuddly balls of fur in their home? Well, those who haven’t had them in the past for sure. Many a horror stories have been written and heard swaying them from having dogs in their home. From rabies to ticks and fleas, not to mention the cost of rearing them(properly!) is like raising a child with may ups and downs.
Raising puppies would be your best chances of having a loyal and well behaved dog by your side. The saying, it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks is quite true for they tend to carry their past experiences and trauma with them. Though many would swear the error in this adage of these words, won’t argue for what matters is the dog’s welfare as well as your safety. Having a dog guide to follow might be the best way of having a pet you can love and cuddle for all its life. They generally live up to 15 years, all filled with love, laughter and fun that ends in sorrow when they do leave us showing that we did love them even if the realization was a tad bit too late.
Life is a tad bit harder with the recession biting hard and with jobs being harder to come by, more and more people are getting desperate with their financial needs. Blogging the whole day, well time to get healthy and stretch out from time to time for too much sitting down can get some stuff accumulating in your belly. This being the case, there are many who forget that they should be watching over their health more now than ever. The stresses that build up everyday need to vent and what better way to get it all out than with some exercises that not only gives your whole body the necessary pump but the mind enough time to clear itself as you work away the flub that has accumulated all those years in the office.
Even with a job, constant exercise is necessary to maintain a healthy life and how can you expect to get back ion your toes when your health is on the rocks. have a lot of time on your hands, dedicate some of it for exercise routines that gets you healthy and keeps you healthy for the time when you may be called upon again by corporate life to serve in its offices!!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released information on autism in the United States on Friday, and the official numbers are that about 1 in 110 children have the condition. This is a considerable change from the old numbers that the CDC has been broadcasting in the past – 1 in 150. However, CDC officials are trying to tone it down slightly, saying that they do not know yet if it is a real increase or if the increase is due to other reasons such as better diagnosis and better record keeping practices.
Autism is a condition which can be diagnosed by observing the behavioral patterns of a child. Unlike other physical conditions, no blood work or biological tests can be used to determine if a child has autism or not. The traditional definition of autism is limited to children who exhibit severe unnatural behavior, mostly repetitive, as well as severe problems with regard to speech and social interaction. Today, however, the definition of autism has become much broader. Even children with milder behavioral and speech conditions can be considered autistic.
On the one hand, I think that it is good that national attention is being brought down on autism. For so long, the general public has needed to be more aware of it. With this kind of attention, perhaps more people would understand autism, potentially detect it, and seek professional help if necessary. On the other hand, I am quite concerned about what are considered “milder” and “minor” conditions. Are we labeling kids too easily these days? Parents, what do you have to say?
Can you imagine having to go to your kid’s school and deal with a disciplinary action against him? It’s probably not that hard to imagine for some, but what if your kid is only 6 years old? Is this something that is acceptable these days?
If you knew about Zachary Christie’s case, then you just might understand what his parents are going through. You see, little Zach had recently joined the Cub Scouts. And as you may know, you get to play with all these cool tools in the Cub Scouts. Zachary got a utensil that functions as a spoon, a fork, and a knife, and he was all excited about it; so excited that he brought it to school so he could use it at lunch.
What started out as enthusiasm for his newfound hobby, turned out to be a bad thing for him, though. His school, which is under the Christina School District, has a zero tolerance policy on weapons. And for the school officials, Zachary’s nifty tool falls under the category of weapons. The result of his action was suspension. The school says that regardless of the intent of the possessor, they have to “punish” him. Now, Zach is at home being home-schooled by his mom.
I couldn’t help but be confused and outraged at the same time. While we want to keep our schools safe, do we have to go this far? Is this how we look at cases today? What do you think, is the school right or should they have taken a different approach?
