What causes pet birds to bite? All pet birds have a tendency to bite. They don’t like being touched. A bird may bite when it is tired, stressed, bored, injured, or otherwise ill. A common reason for biting is fear and/or distrust of humans. The bird may recognize some people specially those tht feed. Others are strangers and it bites out of self defence. Another reason is that many birds tend to bite when they are feeling playful or are over-stimulated. Also Read – Feel what you fear What is the difference between cow milk and buffalo milk? They are different animals. O the milk is different. Buffalo milk contains higher total solids than cow milk. This makes it thicker and creamier. Buffalo milk has more fat and more calories than cow milk. It can be preserved for a longer time than cow milk. Can smoking affect my pet? Yes, smoking does affect your pet. Cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 chemical compounds. Dogs with long noses are at an even greater risk of developing certain nasal and sinus cancers as they expose more tissue to the carcinogens when they inhale. Cats exposed to secondhand smoke have an increased chance of developing squamous cell carcinoma(a type of oral cancer commonly found in humans who smoke tobacco) because the carcinogens in tobacco smoke can settle on a cat’s fur and be ingested when the cat grooms itself. Pets can also have strong reactions to smoke particles in the air. Just like humans, pets can develop respiratory infections, lung inflammation and asthma when exposed to secondhand smoke.

If the babies have already hatched, then the only thing you can do is wait for them to grow up and fly away. The time between when they hatch from the egg to when they fly away from their nest is usually less than 4 weeks. Once they leave, the babies don’t come back to the nest again. Pigeons are very location-specific when it comes to their nest site. Moving the nest over even a few feet can cause the parents to abandon the nest along with the newborns. My cats eat dog food. Is it harmful? Dog food is not inherently harmful for cats. In an emergency where there is no cat food, it is okay to feed your cat dog food. However, dog food is deficient in many nutrients and minerals that are essential for cats. Nutrients such as vitamin A, taurine, protein etc are essential in a cat’s diet. These are absent in canned / dry dog food or are not present in adequate amounts. So, it is not advisable to feed your cat dog food on a regular basis and definitely not as an exclusive diet.

HealthCare.gov to turn off some functions overnight in transition to sign-up season AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, The Associated Press Posted Nov 14, 2014 3:24 pm MDT WASHINGTON – The Obama administration says some functions of HealthCare.gov will be temporarily shut down overnight as the website transitions to the start of sign-up season on Saturday.Spokeswoman Lori Lodes (Low-dess) said Friday that consumers will not be able to update or start new 2014 applications during the overnight transition.

She gives no specific time.Last year, HealthCare.gov was plagued by technical problems. It froze the first day, and repairs took about two months.

“It’s testament to how catastrophic the situation in Yemen has become, that those displaced by the conflict are now returning home because life in the areas to which they had fled for safety is just as abysmal as in the areas from which they fled,” said Ayman Gharaibeh, the Representative for Yemen of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), in a joint press release issued with the International Organization for Migration (IOM).“These returns cannot be viewed as sustainable,” Mr. Gharaibeh added, explaining that people often return to homes that have been damaged and to areas lacking essential services, and are often forced to flee again. A multi-sectoral location assessment report released today, and a periodically updated population movement tracking report published last month, show that there are currently two million internally displaced people (IDPs) across Yemen and one million IDP returnees. As conditions across the country further deteriorate, many more IDPs are contemplating a return home, where challenging security and socio-economic conditions persist. About 40 per cent of key informants indicate that IDPs now intend to return home within the next three months. The reports highlight a lack of access to income and basic services in areas of displacement as the main reasons for pushing IDPs to return to the areas of their origin. All but of Yemen’s governorates now affected by devastating conflictMr. Gharaibeh noted that all of Yemen’s governorates, with the exception of the island of Socotra, have been affected by conflict.“The overwhelming majority of Yemen’s one million IDP returnees have returned to Aden, Amanat Al Asimah, Taizz, Lahj and Shabwah, which have been particularly impacted by hostilities and insecurity,” he explained.Yemen’s local communities are also under intense strain with alarming scarcities of food and insufficient access to water and sanitation services. Some 84 per cent of Yemen’s two million IDPs have been displaced for more than a year and scarce resources are increasingly overstretched. “IOM and all partners must scale up their response to support those newly displaced as well as those whose displacement is becoming increasingly protracted with shifting needs,” said IOM Yemen’s Chief of Mission, Laurent De Boeck. Source: OCHA 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen Weapons must fall silent to avert famineIn a separate statement, the Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, warned against the impact of increased fighting along Yemen’s west coast on the food crisis.“I urgently call on all parties to the conflict and on those that have influence over the parties to facilitate the rapid entry of critical life-saving food staples into all Yemeni ports,” he said, noting that over 17 million people are frequently forced to skip meals and seven million Yeminis do not know where their next meal will come from and are ever closer to starvation. Moreover, the availability of food in markets and the food pipeline are at imminent risk. Food shortages are widespread, food and fuel prices are rising, there are disruptions to agricultural production, and purchasing power is plummeting, especially brought about by the lack of salary payments in the public sector for over six months.And given that the country is 80-90 per cent dependent on imported food staples, he said he is “compelled to raise the alarm,” as such factors, if left unabated, could combine to accelerate the onset of famine.“The best means to prevent famine in Yemen is for weapons to fall silent across the country and for the parties to the conflict to return to the negotiating table,” he said.UN agencies support nationwide polio immunization campaignMeanwhile, a nationwide polio immunization campaign was launched yesterday in Yemen by national health authorities with support from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), aiming to immunize about five million children under the age of five.More than 40,000 health workers are taking part in the three-day campaign.“WHO is working closely with UNICEF and health authorities to keep Yemen polio-free. The threat of virus importation is serious and this campaign aims to curb any possible return of the virus to Yemen,” said WHO Acting Representative in Yemen, Nevio Zagaria.This is the first polio immunization campaign since April 2016. The security situation in Yemen has limited accessibility of many parts of the country, leaving many children at risk of vaccine-preventable diseases. read more

A Vancouver woman was among several people arrested Tuesday after allegedly eluding police in a remote area south of Jefferson County, Ore.Allison M. Eldred, 31, was booked into the Deschutes County Jail for being a fugitive from Washington who escaped community custody, Oregon State Police said.Around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, an Oregon State Police sergeant attempted to stop a Dodge Intrepid that was speeding on state Highway 97 south of Madras, Ore. Rather than pull over, the driver turned off the highway, where the sergeant lost sight of the car, which turned out to be stolen.About an hour later, police found tire tracks and started searching the area with help from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement and the Warm Springs Police Department. They found the unoccupied car after noon.About 90 minutes after that, police found Eldred, who had a warrant for her arrest from the Washington State Department of Corrections for allegedly escaping community custody, and Nicholas S. Eldred, 34, of Portland. He was lodged into the Jefferson County Jail on accusations of conspiracy to possess and manufacture a controlled substance. Oregon State Police reported seizing about 50 grams of methamphetamine.A third suspect, who had also been in the stolen Intrepid, was reportedly picked up by two of his friends.That suspect, Dustin J. Nash, 42, of LaPine, Ore. was later arrested during a traffic stop north of Terrebonne, Ore. He was accused of attempting to elude in a vehicle, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, reckless endangerment and unlawful possession, distribution and manufacture of methamphetamine.The friends who had picked him up, Benjamin D. Morganti, 45, and Julia L. Pincjney, 42, both of LaPine, were arrested on accusations of hindering prosecution. Oregon State Police continue investigating, and say there may be additional charges.

Last summer, Shell asked the government to extend its offshore drilling leases in the Arctic. Today, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski pressed Shell’s case to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell in a Senate hearing. Murkowski says Shell needs certainty to continue to invest billions of dollars in its Arctic operations.Download Audio“Because of this very short window, a 75-day Arctic drilling season, and the difficulties and the delays and the legal challenges that are all out there, that Shell has endured for the past decade, there really are not enough drilling seasons remaining for Shell to complete more than a handful of exploration wells before the Chukchi lease portfolio expires,” Murkowski said.Jewell says the clock on Shell’s 10-year leases in the Chukchi Sea was stopped for a period when a court ruled the government had to redo its environmental impact statement. Jewell says her department is still considering Shell’s request for a five-year suspension of the lease clock.“We took our resources and focused them, as we were requested to do, on helping Shell move forward for this drilling season. I also know that we are actively working with them on suspensions and I think they can expect any answer in the relatively near future,” Jewell said.Oceana and other environmental groups oppose giving Shell more time on their leases. They say the reasons for Shell’s lack of progress were known from outset, like the harsh conditions and the Native whaling season, or were of Shell’s own making. read more

The latest in the series is appointment of a special liaison officer to oversee government cases at the high court.

Representational imageTwitterAll eyes are set on the upcoming Union Budget 2018, which will define the direction of the Indian economy. There are many expectations from the government as the GST Council tinkers with the tax slabs on numerous goods and services.From salaried personnel to small and medium enterprise owners, and the taxpaying community, the upcoming budget will be relevant to all. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will roll out a populist Budget on February 1, which will either meet all expectations of analysts and businesses or contradict them. Either way, optimism is running high among the worried taxpayers.One particular company, Super Plastronics Pvt Ltd (SPPL), which holds exclusive Kodak Brand Licensees for Kodak HD LED TV’s in India, has high expectations from the government concerning the upcoming budget. Taking into consideration the last year’s reforms – GST and demonetisation – SPPL director and CEO Avneet Singh Marwah shares some ideas on improving India’s economy by supporting OEMs with reduced tax. Avneet Singh Marwah – SPPL CEO & DirectorSPPL PR handout”Last year, the consumer electronics industry saw a decline by 10-15 percent due to 2 major reforms (GST and Demonetisation). However, despite the initial decline, we welcome the reforms introduced by the government,” Marwah said in an email statement.In the previous Union Budget, televisions were put under 28 percent tax slab, which largely affected sales of TVs, especially offline, in the third quarter. Kodak TV head hopes the government considers a reduction or the company will face dire situations.”If the government does not consider a reduction, we may see jobs cut down by 35 percent. Many companies have already started laying off their workforce. If India wishes to maintain its ‘fastest growing economy’ tag, then we must increase consumerism, which can’t be achieved by placing a 28 percent tax bracket on a consumer electronics like smart televisions,” Marwah added. Kodak 55-inch 4K UHD Smart TVKodakMarwah compared India’s television market with other countries and found a setback in our country’s growth. The main reason cited by him was sub-12 percent tax structure.”In India, the average screen size which was predicted to be at 38″ in year 2017-18, still remains at 33″, in comparison,” he explained, adding that the “expectations from this budget for the consumer electronics industry is high and we hope that the government is able to balance the reformed taxes with the income-expenditure of the layman.”Will the Narendra Modi government live up to the expectations of the taxpayers? We’ll know soon enough. read more
Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: An expert on space exploration told Houston Matters Thursday that, after the failed space launch of a Russian Soyuz spacecraft, one of the main questions is whether the incident will impact the work at the International Space Station (ISS).Eric Berger, senior space editor at Ars Technica, said that, to survive in the long term, the ISS needs people on board. Currently, there is an American astronaut, a German astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut on the space station and they were due to come back in mid-December “and now the question,” Berger noted, “is will there be a crew up there in time to replace them.”Ars TechnicaEric BergerThe expert added that NASA seems to be relying on Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, to solve the problem with the Soyuz spacecraft “fairly quickly,” but it’s possible that the time the current crew will spend at the ISS could be extended for a few weeks.Berger underscored the importance of the ISS by saying that it is “what the astronauts fly to, it’s the reason we have a human space flight, you know, core here in Houston today and, so, the future of that program is very important to this region.”The expert also pointed out that NASA is entirely relying on the Soyuz spacecraft “until the commercial crew partners, that’s Space X and Boeing, come online and hopefully that happens about a year from now.”Berger explained that the Russian Space Agency will create an independent commission to study the failed launch. “They’ll try to find pieces of the rocket, which should have fallen back to Earth and then they’ll look at the telemetry data from the space flight, talk to the astronaut and cosmonaut that were on board, and try to ascertain exactly what happened and to determine it will be to address that problem going forward.” 00:00 /08:24 X Share read more
Kolkata: A housewife was murdered at Kultali in South 24-Parganas after she found her husband to be involved in an illicit relationship with his elder brother’s wife. The deceased was identified as Lalbanu Mollah.According to locals, Lalbanu’s husband Aminuddin Shaikh had an illicit relationship with his elder brother’s wife. Around seven years ago he married Lalbanu. After she came to her in law’s home, Lalbanu suspected her husband was having an illicit relationship as she heard something in the locality.

Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeNoor Mohammad Mollah, the father of Lalbanu alleged that she was regularly tortured by her in-laws after the marriage. Meanwhile, a few years ago Lalbanu gave birth to a boy and a girl. But that did not help much. On the contrary, the intensity of the torture grew more. Three years ago, Lalbanu became sure of Shaikh’s illicit relationship. Following that both of them developed a conflict which gradually increased day by day. To solve the problem, many a times ‘kangaroo court’ was called. But that also did not help. The situation remained the same for the last three years.

Mexico City, Mexico — The Ministry of the Interior of Mexico says that the first group from the migrant caravan who were given work permits, have received payment.To date, 546 people from the migrant caravan who signed up for the Estás en Tu Casa program received their first paycheck. The program, Estás en Tu Casa, was set up by several branches of the federal government to help those entering the country illegally become legitimate.For those who chose Mexico as their new home, they were provided with work permits while immigration officers moved forward with their paperwork. Through a communiqué, the Ministry explained that the migrants were hired to rehabilitate the Tapachula Fairgrounds where they were sheltered while their applications for refugee status was being processed.They report that this group is part of the 2,697 who entered the country in a non-aggressive, non-violent manner, requesting refuge status in Mexico. The National Institute of Migration (INM), along with the Mexican Commission for the Support of Refugees, ensured that those who entered the country were provided with the proper legal documents to live and work in the state of Chiapas while their legal status is processed.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window) read more
Photo gallery No related posts. Tope San José 2012 More than 5,000 riders participated Wednesday in the traditional year-end horse parade orTope San José 2012.The event started around noon at Plaza González Víquez (South San José) and ended in La Sabana Park (west of the capital), a journey held in reverse of how it was done traditionally. Horse rider Fabio Rojas, who has participated for 50 years in the Tope, said that “It has been very nice and well organized but it’s a little overcrowded, perhaps because of the route change.”Thousands of people, from children to adults, gathered along the capital’s 2nd Avenue to observe the participants while enjoying food and drinks.The Municipality of San José also restricted the consumption of liquor and cigarettes, since a new law approved this year prohibits smoking in public areas. Even so, some incidents were registered at the end of the Tope and some riders were taken into custody charged with causing a public disturbance.The Tope course this year was reversed to prevent some of the riders participating without paying the inscription fee, as the streets near Plaza González Víquez enabled police officers to control riders who tried to sneak in without assigned registration numbers.

Earlier this week, authorities in Chad blamed the group for two suicide bombings in the capital that left at least 33 people dead. Boko Haram took control of a large swath of northeast Nigeria until a multinational force this year forced them out of towns and villages. The extremists still engage in cross-border hit-and-run attacks.___Associated Press writer Dany Padire in N’Djamena, Chad contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Top Stories Yakouba Soumana Gaoh, the governor of Niger’s Diffa region, said the army was hunting down those responsible for the violence overnight in the towns of Lamana and Ngoumawa.“The attackers looted stores, burned villages and shot at people who tried to flee,” he said.In April, Boko Haram attacked Niger and killed at least 58 people, saying the assault was in retaliation for Niger’s support of the Nigerian military.In Chad, government military spokesman Col. Azem Bermandoa said an aerial assault had been launched Wednesday inside Nigeria on Boko Haram positions. However, Nigeria denied the claim, saying the places reportedly hit are “most likely to be in the Niger Republic and not Nigeria.”“Although the terms of the multilateral and bilateral understanding with partners in the war against terror allow some degree of hot pursuit against the terrorists, the territory of Nigeria has not been violated,” said Maj.

The Canadian Government says that its fresh cherry exports to Japan could be worth up to US$6 million annually.This market access follows MacAulay’s recent trade mission to Japan in March.Once the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) enters into force, Canadian agriculture and agri-food exports will benefit from preferential access to key Asian markets, including Japan.Through the CPTPP, Japan’s tariffs of 8.5% on fresh cherries will be eliminated over five years from entry into force.In 2017 the Asian country was Canada’s third-largest market for agri-food and seafood with exports of CAD$4.5 billion (US$3.5 billion).The Chinese market opened for British Columbia cherries in 2014, a development which has driven increased plantings.
