Man Sentenced To 5 Years In Prison For Taping Dog's Mouth Shut

FEED - The Huffington Post - 13 hours 57 min ago

A South Carolina man has been sentenced to five years in prison for binding a dog’s mouth shut with tape, causing it to swell and require surgery in what a judge reportedly described as a “hell on Earth.”


William Leonard Dodson, 42, was handed down his sentence on Friday, one day after he was sentenced to 15 years in prison for an unrelated federal gun charge. He will serve both sentences concurrently, The Associated Press reported.


Circuit Judge Markley Dennis, in sentencing Dodson to the state’s maximum punishment for animal cruelty, said he wished the penalty could have been harder.


“I’m not trying to be mean,” Dennis told Dodson, according to Charleston’s Post and Courier, “but I wish I could give you more.”


The then 15-month-old Staffordshire mix named Caitlyn underwent reconstructive surgery after she was discovered in May 2015 with her swollen muzzle tightly bound with electrical tape. Her tongue, which was seen sticking out of her mouth, had turned black from a lack of blood circulation.


Aldwin Roman, anti-cruelty and outreach director for the Charleston Animal Society, called Friday’s sentence “as good as we could expect.”





“At the end of the day he’s going to serve 15 years in prison,” he told reporters outside the courthouse.


In a video posted to the animal society’s Facebook page, Roman called the sentencing a step in the right direction.


“Today was all about sending a message to our community and really across the country and across the globe that we’re not going to tolerate animal cruelty anymore. We’re going to do everything that we can within the law to get justice for victims of animal abuse,” he said while holding Caitlyn in his arms.

Scientists Create 3D Fly-through Map Of Space Dust In Our Galaxy

FEED - The Huffington Post - 14 hours 26 min ago

Astronomers hate dust as much as the rest of us ― even more, perhaps. It’s one thing to get a little dust in your eye that takes your vision out of focus. Now imagine this kind of dust problem on a galactic scale where it hinders scientists trying to focus their telescopes into space.


That’s part of the challenge faced by researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, reports Space.com. They’re creating an instrument that will offer specific information on how fast the universe is growing.


This device ― the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument ― will create a map of over 30 million galaxies. But in order for that map to be precise, astronomers will have to correct for the problems created by all the dust particles in the Milky Way galaxy that impede their deep space investigations.


“Because outer space is a very dusty place, that makes things very difficult for astronomers and astrophysicists who are trying to peer farther across the universe or deep into the center of our own galaxy to learn more about their structure, formation and evolution,” according to a Berkeley Lab statement.


To help with the DESI project, Berkeley researchers created the following detailed 3D animation showing dust that spans thousands of light-years in our home galaxy. The study was published this week in The Astrophysical Journal. Here’s the animation:





“The light from those distant galaxies travels for billions of years before we see it,” said Edward F. Schlafly in the Berkeley Lab statement. “But in the last thousand years of its journey toward us, a few percent of that light is absorbed and scattered by dust in our own galaxy. We need to correct for that.”


Schlafly and his team created the 3D map (seen above) fly-through of the Milky Way by using data composed of separate sky surveys from telescopes on Maui and in New Mexico, resulting in 3D dust maps “many times better than anything that previously existed,” Schlafly said. 


The Berkeley scientists are looking to create higher quality dust maps which will, in turn, provide them with improved details about space dust properties.


“This can give us a much more precise gauge of distances to faraway stars in the Milky Way, like a galactic GPS,” they said.

Anti-Kremlin Protests Take Hold Over Major Russian Cities

Thousands of Russian opposition supporters assembled across the country Sunday in what may be the biggest anti-Kremlin protest in years. 


Unsanctioned rallies in several cities ― including Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Vladivostok ― sprung up after anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny published allegations that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev had accumulated a massive fortune surpassing his official salary. 


The protests appear to be the largest since 2012, Reuters reported. Authorities arrested hundreds of demonstrators, including Navalny, who plans to run against President Vladimir Putin in the 2018 election, and Guardian reporter Alec Luhn who was covering the protests. 


The rallies attracted an “[u]nprecedented number of young Russians,” reported Max Seddon, a Moscow correspondent for The Financial Times, and grew to massive numbers in cities where Putin once commanded strong support


Photos show demonstrators waving signs with rubber ducks, a reference to Navalny’s allegation that Medvedev has a house for one of his ducks, the BBC reported. Others donned green face paint in a callback to Navalny being attacked with green liquid last week and blocked the car transporting him after he was detained in Moscow.

The Ultimate Goal In Grief: Embracing A New Life

FEED - The Huffington Post - 15 hours 14 min ago

 


“Grief is like a long valley, a winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape.” ― C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed


I know that I have absolutely no choice about the path I must walk in grief. I also understand that I do have a choice in how I cope with my grief, and how I adapt to the loss. Many cope by being “loss-oriented” in their style of grief. The loss defines them. It took me a while in my mourning process to select the good style of grief, which is “restoration-oriented.” This type of grief focuses on the loss of Peter, but allows me to rebuild my life. I continue to have moments of sadness and “grief bursts,” but I am working hard at establishing new habits to reduce the power of sadness, so that it no longer overwhelms me. I am choosing to take charge of my life, integrate my lost love into my heart, and move forward to find my new restored existence.


I decided to put this theory into practice. I set up a sheet listing the loss-oriented items on the left side of my paper, and the restoration-oriented ones on the right. On the left, I listed my yearning for Peter, my sadness at looking at his picture, my memories of our life together, my sorrow at not having a partner with whom to laugh, my loneliness, my lack of a husband to help when my meniscus is torn (damn!), and my empty and slightly hamstrung heart. This is the part of grief work that I call the heavy-lifting.


Then on the right side of the paper, I listed the restoration-oriented ideas that help me to move on with my life. and distract me until I can fully cope with my loss. My writing is my savior and a total boost forward in my process. Setting up a website to invite other widows and widowers to talk is a great distractor. My grandkids, period! Cooking a dinner for friends; watching a funny movie (yes, even Bridget Jones Baby made me laugh a little); watching the Acorn TV series A Place to Call Home; walking with a girlfriend; talking to my pals who keep me buoyed with their friendship; popcorn and chocolate ice cream; and finding strength in the fact that I can take care of the finances by myself!


I am sure that a new life will start for me when:


· I will develop new skills, interests, and abilities; as long as it is NOT playing Mah Jongg!


· I will learn to cook beautiful dinners for me, myself, and I.


· I realize that grief is individual and I can choose to go on this journey on my own time table, in my own style, and with the use of humor as a tool. A horse walks into a bar and the bartender says “why the long face?”


· I give myself permission to heal my wounds of grief in a positive fashion. I will try to be positive and cheerlead myself to get through grief.


· I will believe that failure is a form of learning and not get down on myself for “grief bursts.” Self-compassion, Laurie, self-compassion!


· I will be grateful for the love I had, even though I am mourning it deeply. I will try to imagine nostalgia as sweet, and focus not on my deprivation, but on how good it was when our love was alive.


· I will laud my anger for the temporary insanity it brings.


· I will be thankful for the grief that won’t go away, and my fear that it will, and the void that might swallow me up.


· I will appreciate the legacy of kindness that Peter instilled in Nick and now my grandchildren.


· I will celebrate small successes as if they were grand successes.


· I will value living in the now as a precious gift.


· I will refuse to see myself as a victim.


· I will finally fully fathom that Peter would insist that I enjoy the rest of my life.


If I think of the word widow as one letter shy of window, I can look outward through the window of my widow’s soul and move forward into the light again.
