They are aften is worse condition than formerly abused animals I spent a summer training one of these balls of anxioty. She was too fast and strong for my aunt to train her, so l did it. The biggest hurdle was getting her out of the mindset that biting someone gets her a treat. I had to let her bite my arm, forcible breek the hold, and kennel her all without giving her a response because these dogs are trained to equate someone screaming at them as Go Time. By letting her attack me and showing her that I was stronger than her and then not allowing her to play with the other dogs was what finally got her to stop attacking whenever she heard a loud nolse or was surprised or just felt like it She still had to be homed in a gun-free, pet-free, child-free home because of the sheer anxiety she was bred for. These dogs are not cute, they are horribly esbiengender My mom did the exact opposite of what the person above is talking about, she was involved in training the dogs not to restrain themselves when attacking. She was 18-21 and they had her wear this thick glove and then provoke the dogs onto biting her anm. She sald thay didn't naturally want to be very aggressive tawards a 100 pound, 83" girl, which is the size my mother was at the time. She has scars on her arm from getting time to bite so hard it broke the protective gloves I remember thinking that was cool as a kid. Now I just find it hoifying that they were teaching dogs to use brutal force against... children. My mother may have been a young adult at the time but most people are 100 pounds and 53* as teenagers, not adults What are short, skinny teens even doing that warrants the use of dogs? Can a grown man with a gun really not subdue someone that size on their own?7 It's animal abuse used to further police brutality Yeah. This pup isn't cute, it's being trained to by exceptionally dangerous. If he fails (and chances are he will he will be in for a very kong recovery. If he passes then when he gets older and can no longer work, they will merely outhanize him since rehablitating him at ton will be too much work These dogs are exceedingly dangerous, suiffered years of abuse at the hands of their handlers and trainers, and are quite simply not 'adorable', oven 'on their first day' secing as we know what abuses they are in for. Thay're trained to do as much damage as possible, even against peaple who are no threat to begin with. And if the person tries to fight the dog off, as any person might, the dog is trained to escalate. If the person screams, struggles, or attempts to defend themselves, the dog is trained to escalate Read that again.

Winnie the Pooh was banned in China for looking too much like Xi Jinping: China has decided to ban any mention of Winnie the Pooh from all of its social media platforms Posts that mention the Chinese name of the bear were suddenly censored on Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, over the Any attempts to post Winnie's name on the site returns a message: Content is illegal. And a collection of Winnie the Pooh gifs was dramatically erased from the social messaging app WeChat No official explanation has been given, but the crackdown is apparently related to comparisons of President Xi Jinping and the chubby fictional bear, which ended up going viral. The bizarre ban comes ahead of the Communist party congress in autumn. Qiao Mu, assistant professor of media at Beijing Foreign Studies University, told the FT: Historically two things have not been allowed: political organising and political action 'But this year, a third has been added to the list: talking about the president.Qiao said he knew of a number of online commentators who were detained by officials after posting about the president, adding:'I think the Winnie issue is part of this trend. Although certain words are usually banned when big political events take place, they tend to be directly related to what's going on or the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), rather than about cartoon bears. Xi was first compared to Winnie the Pooh in 2013, when Barack Obama visited China. The two world leaders walking together were compared to a picture of Pooh walking with Tigger. The comparison stuck from then on. The next year, in 2014, a photo of Xi shaking hands with the Japanese PM Shinzo Abe was put side-by-side with a photo of Pooh and Eeyore. 习近平 Winnie the Pooh was banned in China for looking too much like Xi Jinping

Cornell scientists have discovered that atoms will not move when someone is observing them. When a group of Cornell physicists locked a particular gas in a vacuum chamber to cool, the atoms moved freely by “tunneling" to different positions. But, when researchers directly looked at the atoms, they realized that the tunneling would come to a stop. This observation effectively confirms E.C. George’s Quantum Zeno theory, which states that atoms won’t move while you’re looking at them. "This is the first observation of the Quantum Zeno effect by real space measurement of atomic motion," said Cornell's assistant professor of physics Mukund Vengalattore.

thechechi: The Oxford English Dictionary recently announced it will include the gender-neutral honorific “Mx.” (pronounced “mix” or “mux”) to represent transgender people, as well as those who do not wish to be identified by gender.Adapting titles to recognize different identities is not new: In the 18th Century, “Ms.,” as an abbreviation for “Miss,” originally shortened from “Mistress” was incorporated to the general lexicon, as there was no longer a need to specify whether a woman was married or not. This way, the formal title unties a woman’s identity from her marital status.“Language changes on a social level, to reflect evolutions in identity and different ways individuals and communities define themselves,” said Tey Meadow, an assistant professor in both the Department of Sociology and the Program in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Harvard University.Sweden has also recently officially adopted the gender-neutral pronoun “hen,” which can be used to describe transgender people as well as individuals whose gender is irrelevant or unknown. : SUFFIX: VMX.

tumblr rekt.omg-humor.tumblr.com: noiselesspatientspider: peaceful-moon: laughing-trees: In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them. For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done. The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness. But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes. The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help. They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: "I am good." Shikoba Nabajyotisaikia! NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: "I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me." In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: "So, I exist for you." :))) WHY ISN'T THIS A THING IN ALL CULTURES some day I'm going to create a bingo card for these kinds of posts. vague mention of "Africa" and "African tribe" with no actual names of tribes, countries, or languages, because Africa is a country and everyone there is exactly the same obv: check. picture of smiling/emotional black people taken completely out of context: check. made-up "African" words with deep meanings: check. "noble savage" grossness out the wazoo: check. this photo is a picture of Ghanaian boys playing soccer from Amen: Grassroots Football. Initial googling says that Shikoba means "feather" in Choctaw, which would mean OP isn't even on the right damn continent. (When I look at Choctaw-English dictionaries, though, shikoba doesn't show up at all; the word for feather seems to be "híshi." "Shikobli" is a verb meaning "to put on a plume" so maybe there's some conjugation or gerund going on here? l'd welcome any corrections from actual Choctaw speakers.) Nabajyoti Saikia is someone's name. OP just straight-up stole some poor Indian cement chemist's name for their colonialist hippie bullshit. Look at this dude. He didn't spend years of his life writing a goddamn textbook on waste management strategies so that you could use his name to prop up this crock of shit. He's disappointed in you. Do better.
