Behaviour Quiz

The US population is starting to consider the importance of controlling the amount and kind of carbohydrates in their diets. Yet, very few dog owners know how to find out what percentage of their dog's commercial diet is carbohydrate. How can you find out?

A. Find it in the "Guaranteed Analysis" on the package label.
B. Use simple arithmetic.
C. Phone the manufacturer and ask. 

Last Newsletter Quiz's answer:

B. Thorleif Schjelderup-Ebbe.  Try a Google search for his name  and "Dominance"and you'll be more aware just how unfairly some people get treated in academia. :-)

Animals teach children empathy and compassion Pets and children share a deep bond, one that teaches children empathy, compassion and respect. When Cynthia was five years old, her family acquired a cockapoo named Nellis from a neighbor who no longer wanted it. "I still consider Nellis to be the brother I never had," wrote Cynthia one afternoon a few months ago on the New York Times blog.

  Non-Doggy Reading (from Geoff)

Couple of language books. I'm Not Hanging Noodles on Your Ears and Other Intriguing Idioms From Around the World The title, for example, is the Russian way of saying "I'm not pulling your leg." Very interesting collection, but the book simply gives the literal (?) English translations without the original, so you don't get the musicality, alliteration, rhyme, and so on. Stephen Dodson's Uglier Than a Monkey's Armpit: Untranslatable Insults, Put-Downs, and Curses from Around the World is another round-the-world collection, this time of insults and imprecations. It's a slimmer but better organized book.

Also, a thrilled, Vanished by Joseph Finder -- seems to be the first of a series about a character not unlike Lee Child's Lee Child or the old Travis McGee books by John D. MacDonald. Pleasant enough reading, except sometimes the hero is insufferable about being smarter than everyone else.

Finance is the art of passing money from hand to hand until it finally disappears.

Maria Montessori:

        . If education is always to be conceived along the same antiquated lines of a mere transmission of knowledge, there is little to be hoped from it in the bettering of man's future. For what is the use of transmitting knowledge if the individual's total development lags behind?

        . The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist."
