Sweet little one.

I think elephants are beautiful.

After seeing the many tweets about the earth healing, this really made me chuckle.

Another human who helps others.

Wonder if it will work?

Goofy!

Congratulations!

Dog and baby. What could be better?

We can always be there for somebody.

    Yes but US medical agencies are fighting using dogs to detect diseases, even European-trained dogs whose accuracy in some situations exceeds that of standard machine-based testing. They’re even reluctant to use them for initial screening.

    Betting that the main reason is…..BILLING! There’s no way a dog sniffing a urine sample can generate the revenue that a hospital lab processing and testing that sample can. Standard excuse is accuracy and liability but European tests have show an accuracy that frequently exceeds the regular human/machine testing. Then we go to ‘liability’ from an ‘opps’ misdiagnosis by a dog but those are figured into the hospital’s/lab’s insurance premiums and part of those papers you sign (increasingly electronically sign) has you absolving, to some degree, the actors for a botched test.

    Bottom line is, I don’t see dogs replacing standard testing until the medical industry can find a way to monetize them equally to standard testing.

    BTW, are they also looking for a way to regrow the blind mices’ tails that were cut off?

    Reading the info about the mice, there is a mention of “fetal material”. Where does that come from? HHHHMMM? I hope not from abortions! I’ve had a sneaking feeling that fetal material is used in a lot of things we don.t know about. Scary stuff…

      Farther down in the article:

      In addition to bypassing the ethical and political restrictions and hiccups with using embryonic human stem cells, the process takes two weeks, costs less, and is more scalable than using stem cells.
