    On Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs (From the book, On Combat, by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman) ​ Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs | killology "Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?" - William J. Bennett In a lecture...

    FAIRFIELD, Idaho — Great Pyrenees dogs that are working to protect flocks of sheep in the southern Idaho wilderness keep getting “rescued” by people who think the dogs are lost. Flat Top sheep rancher Cory Peavey is frustrated because he is spending a lot of time picking up his expensive dogs that he uses to protect his herd from shelters or people’s homes. There are many sheep ranchers in Idaho, and many use Great Pyrenees dogs, something that might look out of the ordinary in the woods to someone camping. Peavy understands that it might be strange to see a...

    The CDC has changed its recommendations as to testing asymptomatic people for COVID-19. The following is the new guidance from the CDC: If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one. A negative test does not mean you will not develop an infection from the close contact or contract an infection at a...

A further 22% expressed uncertainty....

    A New York City mother on a JetBlue flight from Orlando, Fla., to Newark, N.J., was told she had to get off the airplane, along with her six children, because her 2-year-old daughter would not wear a face mask – and now she says her husband is considering legal action against the airline.

    Pennsylvania Health Department Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine took to Pittsburgh’s KDKA NewsRadio on Thursday morning to further explain the expanded mask-wearing order she signed on Wednesday. Levine hit on a number of familiar talking points. She repeated her familiar refrain: “my mask protects you and your mask protects me.” And she said that the order, which says citizens should wear a face-covering anytime they leave their home and will be around other people unless they’re under the age of two or have a medical or work-related reason not to, is not political. Rather, it’s meant to help prevent an outburst...

    Hours after Gov. Jay Inslee, D, ordered Washington state residents to cover their faces in public, a Republican sheriff in a rural swath of the state's southwest suggested they should be doing no such thing. "Here's what I say," Lewis County Sheriff Robert Snaza told the crowd outside a church Tuesday, carrying a megaphone and sporting his green and beige uniform but no face mask. "Don't be a sheep." Few of the people cheering on Snaza covered their faces either, according to video of the scene taken by the Daily Chronicle of Centralia, Wash. Indeed, the words on a billboard...

    Daily Mail ^ | April 10, 2020 | By ANDREW COURT FOR DAILYMAIL.COM
    A Boston suburb has set up one-way sidewalks in order to have residents practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Police in Beverly, in the north of the city, have mandated that locals who are walking in opposite directions along bustling Lothrop Street must now use separate sidewalks so that they are not brushing up against one another. Pedestrians must now walk against traffic and failure to comply with the new directive could result in a $100 fine. It comes as the state of Massachusetts struggles to slow the spread of COVID-19, with at least 16,790 confirmed cases. Beverly is...

    Sunbathers are being urged to stay indoors today despite temperatures soaring to 72F as people are reminded to keep their distance. But it seems a flock of lambs in Preston, Lancashire, flouted the the two-metre rule to enjoy the spring weather and have their daily exercise. Hairdresser Debbie Ellis, 52, captured an adorable clip of the lambs as they hopped onto a deserted roundabout and spinned around while enjoying the playground to themselves.
  • In fighting pandemic, pure individualism is a handicap

    Daily Herald (Chicago) ^ | 4/2/2020 | Patrick Dickson
    There comes every few years a phrase that perfectly captures a cultural moment. "Irrational exuberance" was Alan Greenspan's way of telling investors to tread lightly. The CIA liked "plausible deniability" in the 1960s. The one I have seen recently, and really has struck a chord, is "pathological individualism." It is without question that the conditions in early America, particularly during westward expansion, called for a type of person who was self-reliant, determined and able to shape his environment by sheer force of will. This became a uniquely American archetype in movies, portrayed by the likes of John Wayne or Gary...

    Emotions ran high at the packed Resources and Development Committee meeting at Piñon Chapter last Wednesday over the issuance of the new 10 sheep unit grazing permits for residents of the Dzil Yijiin Navajo Partitioned Lands, per a resolution that was passed by the previous RDC. Black Mesa area livestock owners, who have testified several times in the past year, are tired of waiting for answers from officials, they say. “We hoped people would realize how devastating this is to us,” said livestock owner Dorothy Yazzie. “For over 40 years, we’ve been impacted by the Navajo-Hopi Land Settlement and they’re...

    Ever since he was a black-faced babe in arms, Eddie has embraced all that family life offers at Whitehall Farm in Dumfries and Galloway. What better than a game of chase with the dogs? Or a kick-about in the yard with Evie, nine, and Bertie, six? Or perhaps a bracing walk to meet them from school, followed by a snooze in front of the Aga? As a youngster, he loved a cuddle on the sofa while glued to an impressively eclectic range of TV shows — children’s programmes, Love Island and occasionally, when he fancied more intellectual stimulation, Laura Kuenssberg...

    Barely a week old, these lovable lambs are already worth a small fortune. Thanks to their rarity – and adorable looks – they are in demand as pets. The Valais blacknose breed, seldom seen outside their native Switzerland and often called the world’s cutest sheep, are worth up to £10,000 each – 40 times the value of an ordinary lamb. These three are the latest additions to the flock on a farm in north Devon, where the lambing season is in full swing.

    In her letter published in The Salt Lake Tribune on Jan. 4, Phyllis Pope asked if “Flippy” Mitt Romney wants “to be one of the frightened sheep or the principled and thoughtful leader?” While I understand her frustration, she needs to remember that Romney is in politics, as he was in his endeavors at Bain Capital, very risk averse. This question answers itself with only slight alteration: Romney is one of the frightened sheep who wants to be seen as the principled and thoughtful leader. There, now it is fixed.

    Three puppies are now recovering from the cold after being rescued off a Utah mountaintop by a few snowmobilers. Holt and Kat Perry, the snowmobilers who rescued the puppies, say it was “just dumb luck” when they found the freezing puppies who were living out of a sheep’s carcass, KSTU reported. The couple was snowmobiling on a Weber County mountaintop when they discovered the puppies and a mother dog five miles away from the nearest road on Saturday. “I’m not going to leave any animal on the mountain to starve, especially, it was obvious she had pups,” Kat Perry said....

    Attempts to save some of the 14,000 sheep trapped in a half-sunken boat in the Romanian port of Midia have been resumed, say activists at the scene, after sounds emerged from the ship indicating that some were still alive. Campaigners are calling again for a ban on live exports from Europe to non-EU countries, after the Queen Hind capsized on Sunday, shortly after sailing out of port. Conflicting reports of the ship’s destination mean that at one point it was believed to have been headed to Libya, but the authorities have now confirmed that it was intended for Saudi Arabia.
