PET TIPS: Topic, Dog Training

Dawn O Watson/CNBNews Contributor I am often asked how to make a dog stop exhibiting inappropriate behavior. In my years of teaching, training, and mentoring I have only used a physical correction one time, and only because I was attacked by a dog during a training session. There are many methods of dog training. I use and recommend a combination of positive and negative reinforcement. That is, the dog is rewarded (reinforced) when he responds appropriately and given a frown or denied attention when he does not. The reward is not necessarily a treat—it can merely be a positive verbal response... Read more →


MAKING LIFE BETTER: Stories And Songs Matter More Than Ever Right Now

(NAPSI)—Here’s a thought that may make you feel like singing: In times like these, when so many people feel like little islands, connecting with other people to share stories and songs takes on a special significance. It’s long been popular. For much of human history, the center of people’s light and life was the humble campfire. It was a place to teach, share, connect, and give thanks. It was the hub of culture, where our ancestors gathered nightly to fight back the dark with their myths, stories, and the joy of their voices raised in song. Stories and songs are basic...

YALE Study Demonstrates Impact of Both Inherited and Acquired Mutations on Cancer

Newswise — New Haven, Conn. — The common belief that tumors arise via activation of a few genes that “drive” cancer development is unsupported by a widespread investigation into those genes and others in three large patient genetic databases, according to a study led by Yale Cancer Center (YCC) researchers. The findings were published online today in the Journal Nature Communications. The pattern the Yale team uncovered shows that cancer develops due to combined effects of many gene variants originating both as the germline mutations, or inherited alterations in genes, and somatic mutations, changes that genes acquire after birth and over...
