When I went in the military, I had no idea where life would take me. I knew that you can be stationed in a variety of places, and I was ready for that. I lived in many different states, but I think my favorite one has to be Georgia. So, after I served my time, I decided to stay there. I began looking at apartments for Sandy Springs GA tenants as soon as I knew that I was getting out of the military.
I had been stationed in August, Georgia. I really liked it, but I had spent some time driving around the state on the weekends and found some other areas that I liked even more. Sand Springs was very high on my list. I had never even heard of the city before. I just happened to be on a long drive one very nice Saturday, and I came across the border into the city. I stopped immediately at a coffee shop and went inside to relax for a bit and have a drink of coffee. (more…)
Among other reasons, I became a vegan because I cannot justify needlessly killing an animal. If I needed to kill and eat animals to survive, I would. However, we do no longer need to kill animals to survive. A person can just as easily survive without eating meat, while remaining just as healthy.
In fact, we have the technology to essentially create meat without killing animals, considering how simple of a substance meat is. We recreate meat in the form of meat substitutes, such as soy burgers.
Despite their ability to live easily without killing animals for food, many people still choose to eat meat. These people do not grant animals the right to life. If a person murdered another person and then ate that other person, almost all people would adamantly oppose it. Meanwhile, these same people slaughter animals without giving it a second thought.
It is hard to understand why murdering a human is so objectionable while murdering an animal is not. Most of us vegans and animal rights supporters view that as very inconsistent.
The inconsistency of people’s views towards animal rights goes further, though. While people carelessly murder animals because they like the taste of meat and the look of leather, these same people fall heads over heels about “cuter” animals. For example, pigs are generally smarter than dogs, but many people object to the idea of needlessly murdering and eating a dog.
People look at Michael Vick like he is a monster for organizing dog fights, which is utterly hypocritical and inconsistent. Fighting dogs probably do not suffer any more than factory-farmed chickens who are debeaked, stuffed into an over-packed cage, and eventually slaughtered. Why do people think it is fine to make animals suffer for the enjoyment of leather or the taste of a meaty burger, but not for the entertainment of a dog fight?
Of course, many people have inconsistent views when it even comes to entertainment and animal rights. Having dogs fight or cock fights for entertainment is seen as wrong and often made illegal, but hunting for entertainment is a
Animals are creatures who cannot express what kind of food they want or is healthy for them, so it is of utmost importance that you take care of it and the feed of the animals you choose be high on nutrition. Food is the most important criteria for animals and if that’s not right then health issue would rise from time to time which is not good at all. So, depending upon the nutritional needs of animals choose the animal feed. Now, there are different needs of different animals be it horse, dog, chicken, duck, cow, goat, etc and these needs are based on the age of the animals.
For example the feed requirement of a calf and a cow or lamb and a goat would definitely differ, even the nutritional requirement for male and female animals is different. During Freezing weather it becomes all the more important to take care of the food and eating habits of the animals. You can search online to fine many publications on the animal food requirements. For animal nutrient content of feeds like Bermuda Hay, Cracked corn, kernel corn, Soy hulls etc, you simply have to send the samples for analysis to the Department of agriculture commercial animal feed and pet food program. For animal foods like sweet feed, dog food, corn gluten pellets etc, the bag itself has the nutrient value tables on it.
There are various types and quality of animal feeds available in the market like roughages, silage, hays, stover, root crops, pasture grasses, etc. There are these concentrates also which are a very high energy value. Animal feeds consists of cereal grains, barley, wheat, oats, etc. as well as high protein meals like soy bean, cottonseed, groundnut and likes as well as products like sugarcane and sugar beets that are processed by products.
Cereal grains as animal feed – The cereal grains are used as animal feed in the whole form or the ground form. Some feed them singly while some mix them with animals feeds that are high in protein or feeds with vitamins and minerals. Mostly these meals are suitable
Although your kids will swear to you that there’s nothing they hate more than school, chances are they’re incredible restless and agitated during the long summer months. Let’s be honest, there’s only so much The Price Is Right you can watch before becoming you’re completely disinterested in the price of Advil and are no longer outraged by the contestants who guess $1 during the showcase showdown. But because of your busy work schedule and watching tight pennant races throughout the baseball season, there’s not always time to take the kids out somewhere and release a little energy. Instead, you’d better have plans for the weekend, or your children are likely to explode like a bottle of Mentos and Diet Coke (Aside: be sure to keep your kids away from Mentos and Diet Coke). Every kid can enjoy a trip to the zoo, but sometimes fathers, as well as their children, need a reminder to be on their best behavior before interacting with fellow members of the animal kingdom. If you’re planning on a trip to the zoo this summer, remember the following “Don’ts.” 1.) Don’t try to teach the parrot how to meow, bark or moo. Yes, a parrot making another animal sound is hilarious, but you’d be contributing to a community of very confused youngsters and low graduation rates for years to come. 2.) Good advice: Think independently. Bad advice: Signs are for suckers who aren’t getting their money’s worth. It doesn’t matter how hungry the gorillas look or how awesome a picture of you riding a kangaroo would be. Just don’t. 3.) Don’t see who can hold their breath longer than the hippo. Humans may be at the top of the food chain, but there some other events in which animals make poor competitors. Other examples include playing chicken with a rhino, thumb wrestling with a grizzly bear, and having an ant-eating competition with an anteater. 4.) Don’t make up endangered species. Kids can be sensitive. After you spend some time checking out the giant panda and bald eagle, don’t tell them that chicken, steak and hamburger are
Most parents consider the idea of getting a pet for their child. After all, it can be a lot of fun and it can teach kids about responsibility. Unfortunately, the bulk of the responsibilities that come with owning a pet typically land on the parents shoulders. This is why parents who are tired of cleaning up after their kids pet dog welcome the boom of online games where kids can get virtual pets. With a virtual pet, children can enjoy many of the same experiences that they would with a real life pet. The only difference is that it takes place in a virtual worldwhich means less work for parents.
When adopting a virtual pet, your child can choose whatever type of pet they want, including a wide variety of the usual dogs and cats. Once they have picked out their virtual pets, it will be up to them to take care of their pets. They will need to go online to make sure that their pets have food and water. They will also need to attend to their pets when they fall ill.
Aside from taking care of the pets needs, your child will also be able to dress it up with costumes, build it a house to live in, and play mini games with them to earn virtual money and level up. Some virtual pet online games also have a feature where the pets can go to school or work. This type of interaction is great for teaching children the basics of owning a pet, and even better, it can keep them entertained for hours.
In addition to the enjoyment they get from interacting with their pet, with virtual pet adoption, your child will also have the opportunity to play educational games for them to earn game points. They can use these points to level up, as well as to earn virtual money to purchase virtual pet supplies. Most sites that offer you the ability to adopt a virtual pet also offer a safe social networking environment where your child can interact with other children. This can help
If one loves animals, then seeing an ad on television depicting animal cruelty can tug at the heart and make the anger boil. However, these ads are on television for one purpose; to make people more aware of the plight of animals and perhaps to convince more people to become active in organizations that are against animal cruelty. Organizations for animal rights are all over this world, and if one really wants to help, then they should try to find the best group and contribute whatever they can, either time or money, for the animals abused by neglect or violence.
One organization that is known all over the world for its fight against animal cruelty is PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). They have helped bring the plight of defenseless animals to the forefront more than almost any other group.
They improve the life of animals by taking on long term projects that most would consider pointless. However, they are the ones that brought the inhumane treatment of monkeys in labs to the forefront, and they continue to keep fighting to keep animals safe from human harm.
Another organization that has come into its own is the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). This is one group that has a nation wide advertising campaign that focuses on the abuse and neglect of companion animals.
The neat thing about this organization is that it was founded in 1866 as the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Since then, this wonderful group has been helping animals in America get away from cruel owners and live a better life. Their mission is the same as it was in 1866; to alleviate the injustices that animals face everyday.
Both PETA and the ASPCA are well known groups that help in the fight against animal cruelty. However, they are other organizations that help provide a better life for our animal friends.
Almost every community has a local humane shelter that helps the animals that have been neglected, abandoned or hurt. If
