Look at Sweet Putin

01_49

MDC wants to highlight the sweet Russian President Vladimir Putin, a dog lover, received a top breed puppy as a belated birthday gift on Wednesday from Turkmenistan’s president who is keen to recover lost Russian markets for Turkmen gas. Let’s remember, the United States President doesn’t own any animals or pets; actually does his horrid family quantify as animals ?

“We have a common friend – this is the world’s unique alabai dog. And today I brought this little alabai with me,” President Kurbanguly Berdymukhamedov said before talks with Putin, pulling the pup out from a portable cage and holding it up by the scruff of its neck.

Putin, who marked his 65th birthday on Oct. 7, took the puppy, called Verny which means “faithful” in Russian, and kissed it in its forehead.

The alabai is a home-bred Turkmen variety of the Central Asian shepherd dog. Along with the handmade carpets and the ancient Akhal Teke breed of race horses, it is officially listed as part of Turkmenistan’s national heritage.

Happy Birthday Vlad !!

Dog Supports on Witness Stand 



Wrenching as it was, the scene was not an uncommon one at a sentencing hearing inside a Brooklyn courtroom on Tuesday. A 30-year-old woman was describing the horrific ordeal she and her 5-year-old daughter endured for five months in 2012, bound by duct tape, assaulted and hidden away from the outside world.

As she recounted being assaulted and choked, the woman reached out and hugged an unusual courtroom visitor — a 5-year-old Australian Labradoodle named Paz.

It was the culmination of the dog’s role as the woman’s therapy dog.

Paz had been at State Supreme Court in Brooklyn regularly during the trial of the man convicted of kidnapping and assaulting the woman, who had been his girlfriend at the time, and her daughter. As she took the stand, the dog would wait outside the courtroom, available whenever the woman became too upset and had to leave the room.

But on Tuesday, Paz was lying next to the woman, as a result, a spokesman for the Brooklyn district attorney’s office said, of a recent court decision that allows therapy dogs to accompany children in courtrooms in New York. When the prosecution asked Justice John G. Ingram for permission to have Paz in the courtroom on Tuesday, he allowed it.

“That’s my dog!” the woman said outside the courthouse on Tuesday after Justice Ingram sentenced her attacker, Yohannes Anglin, 36, to 60 years to life in prison. The woman is not being identified because of the nature of the crime, which prosecutors said included sexual abuse. The defendant was acquitted of a rape charge.

Oren Yaniv, the spokesman for the district attorney’s office, said the case was the first in which a dog was allowed to accompany an adult in a courtroom in New York City.

Paz’s handler in the courtroom said she hoped the case would lead to the broader use of therapy dogs in courtrooms.

MDC adds that the first service dog at a trial would of been LYKA, if a legal firm acted appropriately but was a total ethical fucking disgrace and mockery, stated by Steve Moskovitz.

Police and Peace Officers are THUGS

20130709-222222.jpg

MDC says ,the injustices are allowed to accelerate to the point where innocent Americans are being routinely terrorized by law enforcement. While the guilty run free, the innocent are targeted for shakedowns, arrest or beatings.

America is rapidly devolving into the oppressive police state we’ve been warning readers about.

Right now, cops are exhibiting thuggish, out-of-control “mafia” behavior as they run loose across America, terrorizing innocent citizens, shooting up the vehicles of people who are merely driving cars on public roadways, taking warrantless blood draws from drivers, shooting pet dogs of people who are merely filming police, raiding farmers at gunpoint over raw milk and terrorizing young women for buying bottled water and cookie dough.

All of these are real and happening right now in America. The cause behind them? Police are being “militarized” through federal training while being given weapons of war through federal grants.

Police departments across the country are now being handed armored assault vehicles, surveillance drones and full-auto assault rifles. Along with this equipment comes a training and engagement posture that is increasingly aggressive and militaristic, subjecting more and more Americans to the kind of “theater of war” engagement tactics that the U.S. military would typically use at a roadblock in Afghanistan, for example.

Military tactics and equipment now used by your local police and parks department.

Police have become rogue gangs with complete immunity from all crimes even while they are the ones committing crimes on a massive scale.

What we are witnessing here is a government gone completely criminal. This is a government that now openly kidnapped the President of Bolivia on the off chance that his airplane might have been carrying Ed Snowden. This is the government that openly admits to the existence of secret kill lists that target American citizens for assassination. This is the government that runs the world’s largest surveillance spy program which even spies on ally nations like Germany and France.

“In recent years, police departments have widely adopted military tactics, military equipment (armored personnel carriers, flash-bang grenades) — and, sometimes, the mindset of military conquerors rather than domestic peacekeepers,” writes TimesDispatch.com.

President Obama famously said, during the gun control debate of 2012, that, “AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not on the streets of America.” Yet it is his administration that’s putting weapons of war on the streets of America via local police departments. By arming police and training police in the hardware and tactics of military warfare, the Obama administrations is doing an end-run around Posse Comitatus and effectively putting wartime troops on the streets of America.

As part of all this, federal law enforcement have been training with so-called “no hesitation targets” that train them to instinctively shoot pregnant women, children, young moms and old men. These targets — whose existence was first denied, and then downplayed when the denials didn’t work — offer irrefutable proof that the corrupt, criminal government currently running the USA is actively planning to engage women, children and senior citizens with weapons of war.

If you and millions of others do not rise up against this, you may one day find yourself collapsed on your knees, looking over a large ditch of fresh bodies while a “police officer” holds a pistol to the back of your head and pulls the trigger.

You, like hundreds of millions before you, are about to become another statistical victim of government gone bad. Throughout history, rogue governments have murdered at least 260 million people. And it all began with precisely the same process we are seeing unfold in America today.

Rise up or be exterminated. These are the lowest levels of scum on the earth, limited education, life experiences, travel experiences, social relationships, low level career lifetime earners, that’s why they enjoy “doin what your told.” Those incompetent peace officers probably were never educated about the Nuremberg trials, a perfect example.

DOG DANDER IS GOOD

 

MDC says, dog dander protects children from asthma and the common cold virus.

House dust from homes with dogs appears to protect against infection with a respiratory virus that is associated with the common cold and the development of asthma in children. Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, presented their findings at the 2012 General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology.

“In this study we found that feeding mice house dust from homes that have dogs present protected them against a childhood airway infectious agent, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). RSV infection is common in infants and can manifest as mild to severe respiratory symptoms. Severe infection in infancy is associated with a higher risk of developing childhood asthma,” says Kei Fujimura, a researcher on the study.

HOW OLD IS MY PET ?

MDC gives our readers the Correct formula.

Most people think that calculating the age of dogs and cats in “human years” is quite simple: multiply their age by seven. For example, a 4-year-old dog or cat would actually be 28 years old in human years. MDC has heard this so many times.

But when you really begin weighing out the arithmetic, this method doesn’t add up.

Say a 1-year-old dog is the equivalent of a 7-year-old human — get out of here! How many 7-year-old humans are sexually active and capable of reproducing? Dogs and cats are much more likely to have babies at 1 year old or even at 10 years old, than any person who is 7 or 70.

DOGS

Aging is much faster during a dog’s first two years but varies among breeds. Large breeds, while they mature quicker, tend to live shorter lives. By the time they reach 5 they are considered “senior” dogs. Medium-sized breeds take around seven years to reach the senior stage, while small and toy breeds do not become seniors until around 10.

Many veterinarians agree that a pretty good guess on the age of pets can be made using the following formula. Although still simple, it is much more accurate than the seven-year method.

Assume that a 1-year-old dog is equal to a 12-year-old human and a 2-year-old dog is equal to a 24-year old human. Then add four years for every year after that. (Example: A 4-year-old dog would be 32 in human years.)

Since this method takes into consideration the maturity rate at the beginning of a dog’s life and also the slowing of the aging process in his later years, MDC feels that this is the more accurate calculation formula.

Here is a chart, for easy reference:

A dog’s average lifespan is around 12 or 13 years, but again, this varies widely by breed. The larger your dog is, the less time it will live. Female dogs tend to live a little longer.

CATS

Now let’s take a glimpse at a simple formula for calculating feline age in human years.
Assume that a 1-year-old cat is equal to a 15-year-old human and a 2-year-old cat is equal to a 24-year-old human. Then add four years for every year after that. (Example: A 4-year-old cat would be 32 in human years.)

The following chart shows this formula of calculation:

Cats generally live 12 to 15 years, although outdoor cats live an average of only 10 years or so.
