Take precautions with pets during hot months

Until the last month of spring, the area experienced fairly mild temperatures. However, the hot, dry Southern summer is here and the mercury is only rising.
Most individuals realize the dangers of heat exhaustion and will seek water when feeling dehydrated or find a cool place to rest to avoid potentially serious health complications. Sadly, pets may not have these options and many will die this summer from extreme temperatures. Since the most common pets to roam the outdoors are dogs, and many owners take them along for everyday errands and even family vacations, dog owners should be especially aware of the potential dangers.

Minimalist approach to cleaning

Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

Of all the wonderful things my mother was, an exemplary housekeeper was not one of them. Yes, she kept things clean and neat, the laundry done and good meals cooked, but Mama liked stacks of stuff: magazines to read, bills to pay, pictures she could use for art ideas.

The entrenched regime of racial preferences in American academia is a fit subject for study by the nation’s top psychiatrists.
It’s never OK to discriminate on the basis of race in American life, except when it is. Schools lionize the 1964 Civil Rights Act in their classrooms, and then violate it in their admissions offices. They will obfuscate, sneak around and lie, all to preserve their treasured preferences so they can make the admissions numbers look right — regardless of the consequences.
This system is bad for the moral fiber of academic institutions, bad for the ideal of race blindness in America, and bad, the latest research suggests, for the minorities supposedly benefiting. It is good only for salving the guilty, race-obsessed consciences of university administrators and appeasing the PC gods and the usual interest groups.

Freedom vs. Security

in

This is an era when every question seems to have an answer — and when that answer is as close as your phone, your laptop or your tablet. But these implements, which answer so many of the questions that we did not know we had, also have raised difficult new questions that we now know we cannot avoid.
Many of these critical questions have become part of the national debate in recent days in the wake of disclosures about how the new technology has opened up new avenues of government surveillance. Here are three questions suddenly dominating American civic life:
What is the balance between freedom and security?
