    The bill also requires a pet animal owner to designate a caregiver for the owner’s pet animal. The caregiver is responsible for the care and safekeeping of the pet animal during an emergency that incapacitates the pet animal owner. First responders will use the system to identify the designated caregiver of the pet animal and notify the caregiver of the incapacitation of the pet animal’s owner. A caregiver must agree to be responsible for the pet animal. If a caregiver later refuses to take custody of the pet animal or cannot be located, a first responder will place the pet...

    A 3-month-old baby boy was killed in his Alabama home by his family’s “pet wolf,” according to authorities who have launched a criminal probe. The unidentified toddler died in the wild incident at a home in Chelsea on Thursday afternoon, Shelby County coroner Lina Evans confirmed to The Post. “It appears that the wolf or wolf-dog – they kept it as a, quote, ‘pet’ – picked up the child that was down on the floor and started playing with it, and unfortunately killed the baby,” Evans said.
  • Bone scans overstage prostate cancer at initial staging compared with PSMA PET: Study (Bone scans falsely show metastasis)

    11/14/2023 8:27:50 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 3 replies
    Bone scans have been found to overstage prostate cancer at initial staging compared to prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET, according to new research. The significant false-positive rate of metastases on bone scans means that definitive therapy for local disease may have been withheld from patients inappropriately. PSMA PET is more accurate than CT and bone scans for staging patients with prostate cancer and, in recent years, has become the standard imaging modality at initial staging. Nearly all prostate cancer trials have used CT and bone scans for staging, however, and the best way to apply those data to patients staged...

  • Irish president's pup doesn't like Biden: Bernese Mountain dog, Misneach, BARKS at Joe when he walks over and tries to pet him

    04/13/2023 4:50:53 PM PDT · by algore · 41 replies
    President Joe Biden received a warm welcome from Irish President Michael Higgins on Thursday. Less so from his dog. As the two leaders made their way into the grounds of the Irish president's residence for a tree planting ceremony, Higgins tried to introduce his American counterpart to Misneach, one of his enormous Bernese Mountain dog. But Misneach — named for the Irish word for 'courage — was having none of it. As Biden moved in to show it some love, the two-year-old did its best to upset U.S.-Irish relations by barking at the president and backing away. Maybe it just...

    Share Tweet ... More House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Friday gave an approximately 25-minute floor speech opposing a $1.7 trillion omnibus government funding package, his final show of opposition to the funding bill before its expected passage later that day. “This is a monstrosity. That is one of the most shameful acts I’ve ever seen in his body,” McCarthy said. “The appropriations process has failed the American public, and there’s no greater example of the nail in the coffin of the greatest failure of a one-party rule of the House, the Senate and the presidency.”

    Sprite is retiring its green plastic bottles after more than 60 years. Coca-Cola said Wednesday it's changing the packaging from green to clear plastic beginning August 1 as part of broader efforts to become more environmentally responsible. Sprite's current plastic contains green polyethylene terephthalate (PET), an additive that can't be recycled into new bottles, a key initiative for the company as it looks to reduce plastic waste. "Taking colors out of bottles improves the quality of the recycled material," Julian Ochoa, CEO of R3CYCLE, a plastic group helping Coca-Cola improve its recycling, said in a statement. "When recycled, clear PET...

    Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos said that while cougars “may look cute and cuddly when young, these animals can grow up to be unpredictable and dangerous.” New York has seen other notable cases involving dangerous animals in private residences, including Ming, a 400-pound tiger that was removed from a Harlem apartment in 2003. Ming’s owner, Antoine Yates, was arrested and sentenced to five months in prison for reckless endangerment. Ming died in 2019 at the Noah’s Lost Ark Exotic Animal Rescue Center in Ohio. Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said the cougar’s case “is currently under investigation and no...

That’s when police say Brandon Kirby, 40, jumped into the truck and took off, allegedly taking meth as he drove the passenger through parts of Kansas,...
