Hybrids of dingoes and other domestic dogs are considered to exist in all populations world wide today. Traditional methods for the identification for dingoes, dingo-hybrids and other domestic dogs based on skull features, breeding patterns and fur colour also indicate that interbreeding is widespread and occurs in all populations of Australia, especially in the East and the South of the continent. of all Australian wild dogs are dingo-hybrids.

A little over a year ago, the Alliance released a paper on using a rapid re-housing model to end homelessness for survivors of domestic violence. One of the programs featured in that paper and also featured in a separate best practice on the Alliance website is Home Free, a Volunteers of America – Oregon program . Home Free recently participated in a Centers for Disease Control CDC study that examined the link between stable housing and domestic violence. Perhaps most strikingly, when women who participated in the study were asked what made the biggest difference in their life, they said “ having housing .”  And, when asked what agencies did that was the most helpful, they stated the provision of housing services. If that weren’t enough, the study also estimated the cost savings of housing survivors on the basis of decreases in their need of emergency services, including police, emergency medical care, and safety...

For Every Marriage. Domestic Violence October: Domestic Violence Awareness Month Note: This post was originally published as a feature story in October 2013. The month of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. According to a 2010 survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four women, and one in seven men, have been the victims of severe physical violence by an “intimate partner” boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse at some point in their life. Nearly half of all men and women have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner. Domestic violence shatters the peace that should reside in relationships and especially in the family, the domestic church. John Paul II described the family as the “cradle of life and love.” Domestic violence replaces life with harm and even death; it replaces love with anger and fear.

You can find it online at http://psychcentral.com/news/2011/06/08/domestic-violence-affects-infant-mortality/26757.html. Tina Bloom, Ph.D., from the University of Missouri, recommends training for health care providers to recognize signs of domestic violence and connect abused women with resources in their communities. “Health care providers are not well trained to routinely screen or recognize the signs of domestic violence,” Bloom said. Bloom added, “They don’t know how to ask about abuse, what to say or how to connect abused women with help. This research shows the importance of including health care providers in the response to domestic violence. Health care providers, especially women’s health providers, are in a unique p...

... Smoky Mountain News. News. Neighborly lifeline for domestic violence victims could fray at the edges unless Jackson steps up. Nearly a year has passed since a domestic violence support agency in Jackson County abruptly shut down under financial duress, and so far there’s no sign on the horizon of a new nonprofit to fill the void. In the meantime, however, the domestic violence agency in Macon County stepped in and picked up the torch on an emergency — and presumably interim — basis. “You really bailed us out,” Jackson County Manager Chuck Wooten told Ann VanHarlingen, the director of REACH of Macon County, last week. “We would like to see a standalone agency for domestic violence and sexual assault in Jackson County,” VanHarlingen said in response to Wooten’s praise. But the biggest missing piece for Macon REACH as it attempts to plug the hole in Jackson County is community support. And the Jackson community simply hasn’t stepped up to support Macon REACH despite the nonprofit being the sole lifeline for...

... Wiltz was a victim of domestic violence, and a few days before Valentine's Day 2011, Wiltz, an athletic young man who enjoyed playing basketball, was gunned down as he attempted to leave his home in San Bernardino during an argument with his girlfriend, Ebony Davis. According to the Domestic Violence Research Center, exact numbers of male victims of domestic violence are difficult to obtain because of a lack or reporting, but the National Institute of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1.5 million women and 835,000 men are victims of domestic violence each year. "Because both men and women are forced into these stereotypical roles, men may be too ashamed to come forward and report the abuse." Out of 100 domestic-violence cases filed in San Bernardino County, only about four involved male victims, said Traci Rediford, a victims' advocate for the District Attorney's Office. Although the overwhelming majority of domestic-violence victims are female, experts are seeing that both men a...

Sheriff Curtis McGehee MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. Domestic violence has deeply affected every community. While a simple argument may not result in any short or long term serious problems, there are times when domestic violence will produce issues that will become catastrophic. Victims may suffer from physical injury and/or from serious emotional and mental health issues that can be painful both immediately and long term. This makes it important to seek help when there is a domestic violence issue. Kentucky has laws in place that make it easy for law enforcement to assist those who have been physically abused. If the judge approves the order, it is served by the Sheriff’s Department. If the judge determines there is reason to believe the victim remains at risk, the judge may place a Domestic Violence Order into effect. This order will as...

Schalansky Awarded Advocate of the Year KCSDV awarded Janet Schalansky, Secretary for Social and Rehabilitation Services, the 2004 Juliene Maska Advocate of the Year award for her work assisting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who receive services from SRS. SRS currently collaborates with KCSDV and its member programs to provide the OARS project, which addresses the effects of domestic and sexual violence on a victim's safety and employment. "When you are worried about your safety, it is extremely difficult to focus on other things." Research shows that many victims of domestic and sexual violence never reach out to a domestic violence or sexual assault crisis center for help. She will be working to coordinate the training efforts of the OARS project, as well as provide support and technical assistance to OARS advocates and other member program advocates.

West women’s services at risk without funds Vulnerable women at risk of family violence could be in greater danger without an urgent injection of funding. Footscray-based Women’s Health West WHW is one of a number of domestic violence services with programs at risk because of uncertainty surrounding a homelessness funding agreement between state and federal governments that runs out in June. The National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness NPAH funds a range of homelessness prevention and family violence programs; in 2009, it provided $210 million funding in Victoria. The Weekly last week revealed a 46 per cent rise in family violence reports in Maribyrnong last year compared with the previous year, and a 24 per cent jump in Hobsons Bay. WHW chief executive Robyn Gregory has written to MPs warning the service received 2990 police referrals from July to December last year compared with 2207 for the same period the previous year – a 35.5 per cent increase. Women’s Health West has used NPAH funds to he...

(1/1610) The importance of genetic diversity in livestock populations of the future.

Farm animal genetic diversity is required to meet current production needs in various environments, to allow sustained genetic improvement, and to facilitate rapid adaptation to changing breeding objectives. Production efficiency in pastoral species is closely tied to the use of diverse genetic types, but greater genetic uniformity has evolved in intensively raised species. In poultry, breeding decisions are directed by a few multinational companies and involve intense selection, the use of distinct production lines, and very large populations. In dairy cattle, the Holstein breed dominates production. Intensive sire selection is leading to relatively rapid inbreeding rates and raises questions about long-term effects of genetic drift. Key questions in management of farm animal genetic diversity involve the distribution of potentially useful quantitative trait locus alleles among global livestock breeds. Experiments with tomato, maize, and mice suggest that favorable alleles can exist in otherwise lowly productive stocks; this cryptic variation may potentially contribute to future selection response. Genetic improvement under relatively intense unidirectional selection may involve both increases in the frequency of favorable additive alleles as well as the progressive breakdown of homeostatic regulatory mechanisms established under the stabilizing selection that is characteristic of natural populations. Recombination among closely linked regulatory loci and new, potentially favorable mutations are possible sources of long-term genetic variation. A greater understanding of the potential that these alternative mechanisms have for supporting long-term genetic improvement and of genetic relationships among global livestock populations are priorities for managing farm animal genetic diversity.  (+info)

(2/1610) Mechanical maceration of alfalfa.

Maceration is an intensive forage-conditioning process that can increase field drying rates by as much as 300%. Because maceration shreds the forage and reduces its rigidity, improvements in bulk density, silage compaction, and ensiling characteristics have been observed. Macerating forage also increases the surface area available for microbial attachment in the rumen, thereby increasing forage digestibility and animal performance. Feeding trials with sheep have shown increases in DMI of 5 to 31% and increases in DM digestibility of from 14 to 16 percentage units. Lactation studies have demonstrated increases in milk production and BW gain for lactating Holstein cows; however, there is a consistent decrease in milk fat percentage when dairy cattle are fed macerated forage. In vitro studies have shown that maceration decreases lag time associated with NDF digestion and increases rate of NDF digestion. In situ digestibility studies have shown that maceration increases the size of the instantly soluble DM pool and decreases lag time associated with NDF digestion, but it may not consistently alter the rate or extent of DM and NDF digestion.  (+info)

(3/1610) The Parkes Lecture. Heat and the testis.

The evidence for the lower temperature of the testes of many mammals is summarized, and the reasons suggested for the descent of the testes into a scrotum are discussed. Descriptions are given of the various techniques used for studying the effects of heat on the testis, whole body heating, local heating of the testes (by inducing cryptorchidism, scrotal insulation or immersion of the scrotum in a water bath), and heating of tissue or cell preparations in vitro. The effects of heat are discussed, effects on the testis (weight, histology, physiology, biochemistry and endocrinology), on the numbers and motility of spermatozoa in rete testis fluid and semen, on fertilizing ability of spermatozoa and on the subsequent development of the embryos produced when spermatozoa from heated testes are used to fertilize normal ova. The possible mechanisms for the damaging effects of heat are discussed, as well as the importance of heat-induced abnormalities in male reproduction in domestic animals and humans.  (+info)

(4/1610) The role of domestic factors and day-care attendance on lung function of primary school children.

The results of studies examining the relationship of domestic factors to lung function are contradictory. We therefore examined the independent effects of maternal smoking during pregnancy, exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), the presence of a cat, type of heating and cooking used in the home and day-care attendance on lung function after controlling for socioeconomic status (SES). Nine hundred and eighty-nine children from 18 Montreal schools were studied between April 1990 and November 1992. Information on the child's health and exposure to domestic factors was collected by questionnaire. Spirometry was performed at school. The data were analysed by multiple linear regression with percent predicted FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC as dependent variables. In the overall sample (both sexes combined), cat in the home (regression coefficient, beta = -1.15, 95% confidence interval, CI: -2.26-(-)0.05) and electric baseboard units (beta = -1.26, 95% CI: -2.39-(-)0.13) were independently associated with a lower FEV1/FVC, while day-care attendance (beta = -2.05, 95% CI: -3.71-(-)0.40) significantly reduced FEV1. Household ETS was significantly associated with increasing level of FVC (beta = 2.86, 95% CI: +0.55 to +5.17). In boys but not girls, household ETS (beta = -2.13, 95% CI: -4.07-(-)0.19) and the presence of a cat (beta = -2.19, 95% CI: -3.94-(-)0.45) were associated with lower FEV1/FVC. By contrast, day-care attendance was associated with lower FEV1 (beta = -2.92, 95% CI: -5.27-(-)0.56) and FEV1/FVC (beta = -1.53, 95% CI: -2.73-(-)0.33) in girls only. In conclusion, the results provide evidence that domestic factors and day-care attendance primarily affected airway caliber and gender differences were apparent in the effects of these factors.  (+info)

(5/1610) Pathogenesis of cancrum oris (noma): confounding interactions of malnutrition with infection.

This study showed that impoverished Nigerian children at risk for cancrum oris (noma) had significantly reduced plasma concentrations of zinc (< 10.8 micromol/L), retinol (< 1.05 micromol/L), ascorbate (< 11 micromol/L), and the essential amino acids, with prominently increased plasma and saliva levels of free cortisol, compared with their healthy counterparts. The nutrient deficiencies, in concert with previously reported widespread viral infections (measles, herpesviruses) in the children, would impair oral mucosal immunity. We postulate, subject to additional studies, that evolution of the oral mucosal ulcers including acute necrotizing gingivitis to noma is triggered by a consortium of microorganisms of which Fusobacterium necrophorum is a key component. Fusobacterium necrophorum elaborates several dermonecrotic toxic metabolites and is acquired by the impoverished children via fecal contamination resulting from shared residential facilities with animals and very poor environmental sanitation.  (+info)

(6/1610) Preventing zoonotic diseases in immunocompromised persons: the role of physicians and veterinarians.

We surveyed physicians and veterinarians in Wisconsin about the risk for and prevention of zoonotic diseases in immunocompromised persons. We found that physicians and veterinarians hold significantly different views about the risks posed by certain infectious agents and species of animals and communicate very little about zoonotic issues; moreover, physicians believe that veterinarians should be involved in many aspects of zoonotic disease prevention, including patient education.  (+info)

(7/1610) A 105- to 94-kilodalton protein in the epididymal fluids of domestic mammals is angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE); evidence that sperm are the source of this ACE.

SDS-PAGE analysis of luminal fluid from the ram testis and epididymis revealed a protein of about 105 kDa in the fluid in the caput epididymal region. The molecular mass of this fluid protein shifted from 105 kDa to 94 kDa in the distal caput epididymidis and remained at 94 kDa in the lower regions of the epididymis. The possible sperm origin of this protein was suggested by the decrease in intensity of a 105-kDa compound on the sperm plasma membrane extract and by its total disappearance from the fluid of animals with impaired sperm production caused by scrotal heating. The 94-kDa protein was purified from ram cauda epididymal fluid, and a rabbit polyclonal antiserum was obtained. This antiserum showed that membranes of testicular sperm and sperm from the initial caput were positive for the presence of an immunologically related antigen. The protein was immunolocalized mainly on the flagellar intermediate piece, whereas in some corpus and caudal sperm, only the apical ridge of the acrosomal vesicle was labeled. The purified protein was microsequenced: its N-terminal was not found in the sequence database, but its tryptic fragments matched the sequence of the angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE). Indeed, the purified 94-kDa protein exhibited a carboxypeptidase activity inhibited by specific blockers of ACE. All the soluble seminal plasma ACE activity in the ram was attributable to the 94-kDa epididymal fluid ACE. The polyclonal antiserum also showed that a soluble form of ACE appeared specifically in the caput epididymal fluid of the boar, stallion, and bull. This soluble form was responsible for all the ACE activity observed in the fluid from the distal caput to the cauda epididymidis in these species. Our results strongly suggest that the epididymal fluid ACE derives from the germinal form of ACE that is liberated from the testicular sperm in a specific epididymal area.  (+info)

(8/1610) La roca magica: uses of natural zeolites in agriculture and industry.

For nearly 200 years since their discovery in 1756, geologists considered the zeolite minerals to occur as fairly large crystals in the vugs and cavities of basalts and other traprock formations. Here, they were prized by mineral collectors, but their small abundance and polymineralic nature defied commercial exploitation. As the synthetic zeolite (molecular sieve) business began to take hold in the late 1950s, huge beds of zeolite-rich sediments, formed by the alteration of volcanic ash (glass) in lake and marine waters, were discovered in the western United States and elsewhere in the world. These beds were found to contain as much as 95% of a single zeolite; they were generally flat-lying and easily mined by surface methods. The properties of these low-cost natural materials mimicked those of many of their synthetic counterparts, and considerable effort has made since that time to develop applications for them based on their unique adsorption, cation-exchange, dehydration-rehydration, and catalytic properties. Natural zeolites (i.e., those found in volcanogenic sedimentary rocks) have been and are being used as building stone, as lightweight aggregate and pozzolans in cements and concretes, as filler in paper, in the take-up of Cs and Sr from nuclear waste and fallout, as soil amendments in agronomy and horticulture, in the removal of ammonia from municipal, industrial, and agricultural waste and drinking waters, as energy exchangers in solar refrigerators, as dietary supplements in animal diets, as consumer deodorizers, in pet litters, in taking up ammonia from animal manures, and as ammonia filters in kidney-dialysis units. From their use in construction during Roman times, to their role as hydroponic (zeoponic) substrate for growing plants on space missions, to their recent success in the healing of cuts and wounds, natural zeolites are now considered to be full-fledged mineral commodities, the use of which promise to expand even more in the future.  (+info)


When is it okay to kill an animal?


So basically :
Killing animals for food = Okay
Killing cats, dogs and monkeys (still animals) for food = Not okay
Killing animals for no reason = Not okay

What's the argument here? apparently we still have sacred animals (domestic animals for instance) and only certain animals can be killed. 

Note : I have not settled my position so don't label me yet, I want to hear your opinions.

I believe it's wrong to kill animals for food, to test things on them, to confine them in poor conditions  for their milk or eggs, etc. But some people will say killing any animal for any reason isn't a big deal. I don't see where the argument is. You either value animals or you do not value them as a sentient being. You know what animals are, youve seen them.. you either think it's okay to kill them and use them for their body parts or you don't.


Is there a risk of domestic animals contracting the swine flu?


I'm pretty well educated on it, but I haven't heard anything on animals, besides pigs.  Is there a risk of domestic animals, like dogs, catching the swine flu? And since there's some avian influenza bacteria mixed in with swine influenza, are birds at risk as well?
----------

not unless it mutates....
now, if it's a pig, I'd be worried, but a dog I would not worry at all
and the birds, I wouldn't be all to worried about either. I don't know if the dna structure of this virus can affect pets


Do animals have to show the symptoms to have rabies?


Do animals have to show the rabies symptoms to actually have the disease or do some have it without even showing any signs of it? I've always thought that most domestic animals have rabies without even showing it. Is this true?
----------

i will give you the facts, no lies. when an animal has rabies, it is very deadly because the virus is moving through their nerves where it will reach the brain and kill the animal. it is not true that most domestic animals have rabies, only an extremely small percentage have rabies. animals do not have to show symptoms of the disease to actually have it. when something contracts rabies, it is finished,  unless it can be administered a vaccine before symptoms show. once symptoms show, which can be up to two years, depending upon where one is bitten (the further something is bitten from the brain, the longer it takes to develop rabies symptoms), the time it takes for rabies to actually reach the brain varies upon where one is bitten. at the toes or paw of an animal, usually two years. on the face, ten days.


What are some animals that have helped to make medicinal advances?


I am doing a research paper that has to do with animals in medicine. I am having trouble finding anything that doesn't have to do with animal testing and the ethics of it. I am not arguing that point this is strictly a paper about how animals have impacted the medical field. Thanks.
----------

There are a wide range. It depends what research is being done

Simple animals like nematode worms and Drosophila fruit flies are used as model animals for many genetic studies, to work out how genes are controlled, what common genes determine how all living things are put together. Using such model species we know that there are some genes that control body shape in all living animals - so heads are one end, legs in the middle etc.

Probably the majority of animals used in medical research are rats and mice. These have been used to advance knowledge in many fields, from genetics, to oncology (cancer), to cardiology (hearts), to toxicology (drugs and poisons), as well as advances in medicines. 

Sometimes animals are used because of their similarities to humans. Pigs for example have a circulation system that is close to the human one, so they are often used in research into heart diseases and the like.

Sometimes animals are used because they provide a good model of a disease. Armadillos are used in leprosy research because these are the only species other than humans that can actually catch leprosy.

Sometimes animals are used because of their differences to humans. Sharks are immune to cancer, so exampining them could help us to understand what mechanism prohibits shark cells from mutating into cancer cells, and find new therapies. Zebra fish can heal their hearts when they become damaged (unlike humans) so they could show us new ways to heal people after heart attacks.

And let us not forget one very important animal used in medical research - human beings. On average when developing a new drug, 15 people are used for each animal. As we can talk, as we can give informed consent, as we can feed back things, we're very good test subjects in our own right.


What animals do they hunt and eat in the poorer parts of ethiopia?


What animals do they hunt and eat in the poorer parts of ethiopia?
----------

I do not promote hunting or the killing of animals for sport but I do understand the necessity of food for those less fortunate.  That being said, here is the requested information:

There are many indigenous species found in the various regions of Ethiopia that are not found in any other hunting destination in Africa. Ethiopia offers unique hunting experiences from the primitive Omo and Gambella areas found in the West to the Bale Mountains in the Southeast and on to the Afar/Danakil desert regions to the North. 

The hunting of Mountain Nyala, Lion or Leopard is common in Ethiopia.

What environment should animals and vegetables be raised in?


Plz Describe the environment that animals and vegetables should be raised/grown in to provide humans with high quality nutrition while being socially responsible.
----------

the environment as to be a mostly sunny area. make sure it is not too hot because then the plants will dry and and die. make sure that it rains often and the soil has to be rich in nutrients. animals need a big place or else they will become sick and will not be able to be used in a way that the human would has wanted to use them for. free range animals are healthier and will make better food and or transportation.
i hope this helps you!


What happens to the animals that vegetarians save?


I'm a vegetarian, and I'm against the creutly of animals. Lately I've been wondering, though, what happens to the animals we save? I hear people say that animals were meant to be eaten. And I can't find a reason why else to keep them on Earth, except to have a happy free life, which we ALL deserve to have - humans AND animals.

What do you think? Can someone inform me?
----------

Well, unless you physically took the animal home with you or to a safe haven shelter, it is still actually killed. The "vegetarians saves animals" is just a theoretical value.and mostly symbolic. The number of animals killed divided by the number of people then multiplied by the number of vegetarians. But in reality, no animal is spared because a vegetarian exists. Symbolic because it signifies the concept that the individual vegetarian does not and no longer contributes to the animal food industry. 

But don't stop because it may not be having an impact. You are doing what you think is right and that's what counts


who would i talk to about the conditions for animals that get tested on?


I'm a huge an animal activist, and i'm a vegan and use nothing tested on animals and i've been doing a lot of research and i want to get laws or rules about the conditions for those animals i just don't know who to talk to about that.
Thanks.
Gee why didn't i think of that?? Oooh that's right i did but  didn't find anything.
Everyone this is big deal for me and i'm really dedicated and passionate about this so please no answers like "alexa" put.
----------

Hi,
I'm vegan, work for an animal rights organization, and also very against animal testing. In the United States, if that's where you're from, there are very, very few laws regarding animals used for testing and vivisection. You can contact the USDA (more specifically APHIS [animal and plant health inspection services]) about laws on animal testing. They regulate the whole system, which is pretty corrupt and nasty anyway.

It's a hard fight but someone's gotta do it. Thank you for your compassion. Please continue to educate others about the cruelties of animal testing and factory farming. Great work :))
