AKC CGC – Canine Good Citizen Test Center – Feb 22nd
Event on 2017-02-22 18:00:00
Canine Good Citizen testing by invitation only. You will be contacted with your appointment time. Please arrive early. The AKC's Canine Good Citizen program is recognized as the gold standard for dog behavior. In CGC, dogs who pass the 10 step CGC test can earn a certificate and/or the official AKC CGC title. Dogs with the CGC title have the suffix, "CGC" after their names. The Canine Good Citizen Program lays the foundation for other AKC activities such as obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. As you work with your dog to teach the CGC skills, you'll discover the many benefits and joys of training your dog. Training will enhance the bond between you and your dog. Dogs who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life. We sincerely hope that CGC will be only a beginning for you and your dog and that after passing the CGC test, you'll continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, or performance events.

There has been a lot going on in Africa lately and not too much have been good. Killings and the raping of the black woman it all seems so insane. But yet little has been done as far as support for the mother land. And to me the big question is why? As we look at this world today we see so many countries in turmoil and most of them because of internal civil war but some are having a little help from out side sources. And it all boils down to resources one faction wants to control it and not share in the wealth. Just like in Africa, a place rich in resources as well as beauty and wonder.
The mother land of life an all its wonder as we know of it. The epic center of all wonders a fantasy as well as true joy of the heart. But why is there so little help for Africa. Well manly because just that it is Africa. As history has showed us any time there is a problem over in Africa it must be dealt with by us! We must step up and give support to our home of origin. To make the world take notice of what is going on and then finally, maybe the world will step in and say hey we can’t stand by and watch this happen we must do something!
And then that something starts out to look like a very good thing.
You hear about it on the local news stations for a while maybe a week and then it dies. And just like the news stories the effort dies and you hear nothing else. But only the independent news stations show you what really is happening there! Because when the next tragedy happens over there and the independent stations have been telling us about it for weeks. Finally the local
News will show or are allowed to show something about it that again last for maybe a week and then you hear nothing about it again.
And if you want to know the real truth, check out your independent news stations for all real news. Now if what is happening over in Africa was going on any where else in the world it would be treated as a world disaster and you would here about it everyday and see all the countries of the world getting together to do something about it. But because it is Africa the same old routine is being put into place and will not change until we make it change! This change must come from the United States of America. Because we are the standard of this big ball or wax. When we get involved the other countries take notice and say well we can not just let them take all the glory!
And that’s when things start to happen for the good and changes start to happen. But it is just that it takes the USA so much time to decide to get involved that usually when they do it has gotten so bad that it calls for a major move to calm down the turmoil! Why! It is not like we don’t see what is happening why does it always take a major disaster or tragedies to get us to do what is right. Why!
As I sit here at 5:46am writing this I can’t help but to wonder who will be reading this after I submit it and if it will get anyone’s attention to move them to action for the cause of Africa to stop the tragedies?

What’s in my bag August 12, 2012

I apologise for the appalling quality of the photograph. That is the combination of using an iPhone and a location with uneven lighting.
Normally an iPhone 4 should be present in this picture as I always carry it in the bag – actually in the blue ‘3way Accessory Case’ attached to the blue ‘Deluxe Strap Pad’.
I didn’t empty the Ordning & Reda Pencil case as it has only a couple of pens (Pentel Tradio – www.penteleurope.com/pages/trj50_trj74_infopage.htm and a Rotring Core series fountain pen, Tanakor model used to write on my main working notepad – a Clairefontaine – good paper deserves to be honoured with a fountain pen and a good ink) and a pack of Waterman ink cartridges in it.
The bag is a:
Custom Laptop Messenger Bag
– size: medium
– ballistic nylon spinach / stripes blue / ballistic nylon spinach
– binding: pacific blue
– logo: pacific blue
– liner: argon blue
– crater laptop sleeve
– grab strap
– compression straps with tabs
– right handed
I find the blue liner especially nice, although I have always been a fan of the orange ones.
Notoriously missing – my Livescribe pen, which I forgot at work this weekend.
As always, my What’s in my bag shot comes heavily annotated with Flickr-notes, simply mouse-over an object to see what it is.

Volcanic plume has far reaching effects on the weather, Earth – Blocks sunlight
The explosive eruption of a volcano in Iceland has had various local and distant effects. In Iceland, volcanic ash is settling on the land, threatening the health of grazing livestock, while mud flows, known as lahars, and glacial floods, known as jokulhlaup, threaten the tourists who have converged on the area since the eruption began last month. Across Europe, thousands of flights have been cancelled, with economic losses thought to be in the billions. . . But as the volcano continues to burble, and gases that were once dissolved in magma deep within the Earth are released as vapour and carried on the wind, scientists are watching for possible changes in the weather and, more controversially, the wider climate. Reports indicate that the Iceland eruption, while relatively small, has sent its plume high enough into the atmosphere to reach the fast-moving winds that can spread it around the globe.
As travelers contend with global airline cancellations and delays triggered by clouds of ash from an erupting volcano in Iceland, researchers are trying to judge just how long the mountain’s explosive eruptions might last.While airlines have coped with eruptions along the Pacific Rim’s Ring of Fire, this marks the first time modern Europe – with its high concentration of major airports – has had to cope with the disruptions caused by wind-steered clouds of volcanic ash, researchers say. On Friday, airlines canceled some 16,000 flights, twice the number of cancellations Thursday. Typically, air traffic hovers around 28,000 flights a day.
Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, the culprit behind the flight cancellations, has erupted only twice before over the past 1,100 years. The volcano’s last active period lasted from 1821 to 1823.
Can You Say ‘Eyjafjallajokull’?
One thing you won’t hear too often, at least on U.S. broadcast outlets, is an attempt to pronounce the name of the glacier — Eyjafjallajokull — under which the volcano lies and from which it gets its name.
NPR librarian Kee Malesky checked with Iceland’s embassy in Washington and came away with this: "AY-yah-fyah-lah-YOH-kuul."

If you are frequently using the internet and you are wondering about its effect on the way we live our lives today, here are some points which will be able to help you find answers to your questions.
The main purpose of the internet is to enable people to establish communication to each other easily and efficiently. With the use of the internet, people nowadays can share almost anything they want. Internet is also a place wherein people discuss certain topics without even revealing their identities examples of which are forums and portals.
Using the internet, people are now also able to place voice over IP phone calls. This technology is actually similar from the telephone technology that we know but the difference is that instead of using regular phone lines, VoIP technology maximizes the use of the internet by using it as a means to transport voice data from one location to another.
But one of the disadvantages that the internet entails is the extreme point of view of people. For example, if there is a certain issue and you want to know more about one side, there are thousands and even millions of websites which support a certain topic. But the bad thing is there is also an equal number of websites which oppose to a certain topic. So as you can see, the views on the internet are rather extremes which may be very confusing especially to students who are relying on the internet to find facts and information which they will use in their studies.
One of the benefits that we can get from the usage of the internet is the ease of information access. If we want to research on a certain topic, all we have to do is to turn on our computers and search on the internet instead of going to the library and looking for related books manually.
