Old School Dog Training

Rudd Weatherwax's son, Robert, gives a short course on "The Lassie Dog Training System," which is basically a slip collar, a leash, hand signals, and treats -- same as it ever was. Above, we have British bird dog trainer Derry Argue training pointers in a down-stay using a check cord, pinning young dogs to the ground, and popping them on the head if they try to get up.Is this wildy different from what Robert Weatherwax is doing? Not really. Argue is more of a "scratch their ears" kind of guy t...

Muslim Literature: The Pros, The Progress, And The Pitfalls

Once upon a time, it was extremely difficult for English-speaking Muslims to find good books – fiction and non-fiction alike – that was catered to their demographic. Fiction, in particular, was scarce, for both young children as well as teens. Much of it was poorly written, filled with atrocious spelling and grammar, and stilted from beginning to end. It was not an enjoyable reading experience. Alhamdulillah, the Muslim literary scene has evolved significantly since the early 90s. Toda...

Radha Mistry's Job at Autodesk is to Explore and Provoke Possible Futures

For this year's Core77 Design Awards, we're conducting in-depth interviews with some of our 2020 jury captains to get in a glimpse into their creative minds and to hear more about what they'll be looking for in this year's awards submissions. You could say the general purpose of an organization's collective body is to ask the question, "what's next?" In other words, any one person's job at a company is to help contribute to moving it forward and make it a success. But not everyone can say they...

Watch Luis Robert rope a triple for his first hit of spring training

Of all the excitement surrounding the White Sox entering 2020, Luis Robert might have the most juice right now. After dominating three levels of the minors last season and fresh off signing a lucrative contract extension before even playing in a big league game, Robert has plenty of buzz around him.

Spring Training Report: White Sox’ Luis Robert, Other Possible Future All-Stars Take Field

CHICAGO (CBS) —  Spring Training offers a fresh start around MLB, insofar as that’s possible with baseball working through the aftermath of the Houston Astros cheating scandal. The exhibition games have started. And while they mean nothing in terms of the standings, they can mean a lot for players’ futures. The league’s prominent up-and-comers have an opportunity to secure their places on opening day rosters or at least make their case for a call-up in the weeks to follow. Luis Robert looks pois...

Chained up or left to die: Disabled children in East Africa

WARNING: This story has graphic elements. East Africa (MNN) -- In East Africa, children with disabilities or mental health conditions are often severely mistreated. Parents don’t always know what to do with their disabled kids and even see them as curses or bad omens. So these children are often locked away or chained up . They are malnourished, abused, and cut off from the rest of society. Dean VanderMey with Set Free Ministries says sometimes these disabled children are cast out a...

"If your conversation during a presidential election is about some guy wearing a dress and whether he, she or it can go to the locker room with their daughter, that’s not a winning formula for most people."

Said Mike Bloomberg, just last year:Via "‘Some guy wearing a dress’: Bloomberg reference to transgender people in 2019 video prompts outcry" (WaPo).The "he, she, or it" is especially bad. But if you like the kind of blunt speech we've been getting from Trump, you might welcome a Democratic candidate who does the same thing.But it's inconsistent with Mike's presentation of himself as the one who speaks in a "presidential" style, as he does in this ad, which put at #1. Here's the ad — sorry I ca...

‘He Is Without Morality And Empathy’: Michael Emerson On Leland Townsend & CBS’s ‘EVIL’

(CBS Local)– “EVIL” just finished up its first season on CBS and Michael Emerson loves being on a show that’s scary. The actor has made a name for himself by playing villains on shows like “Lost” & “Person Of Interest” and the CBS drama with Katja Herbers and Aasif Mandvi allows him to go darker and deeper. “You don’t think of CBS when you think of horror” said Emerson in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “It’s so great. Robert and Michelle King read the paper together and talk about od...

Starve Acre ~ Andrew Michael Hurley

Bookhound had been out shopping and as he came in the door said... 'I've just been listening to the most amazing book on the radio, think you'd love it. Something about a strange tree and a dead hare...'

Michigan County Sued For Stealing Cars From Innocent Car Owners Via Civil Forfeiture (techdirt)

A 1996 decision by the Michigan Supreme Court set the precedent for the widespread abuse of civil asset forfeiture in the state. The ruling said being an innocent owner of property seized is no defense and any forfeiture predicated on the illegal acts of others could result in the actual owner being deprived of property without violating their Constitutional rights. The state's law enforcement agencies took this ruling and ran with it. To ensure minimum legal hassle, cops are "fighting" crime ...
