A new creation has put a novel twist on what can sometimes become a tiring game of fetch for a dog owner. The Rogz Grinz ball, designed by Porky Hefer, features large grinning teeth so when the dog runs back with the ball, he will also greet his owner with a warm, toothy grin. Created by South African based company Rogz, the Grinz ball can be stuffed full of a dog´s favourite treats, ensuring even the laziest of dogs will go after the toy.[Snip]Mr Metelerkamp, 37, had to overcome a number of design issues to get the ball to become

Hilarious. My dogs don´t like rubber toys, though. They have a couple hundred stuffed toys in various stages of stuffiness.

Love it it! Thanks for the post!

Re #2 and "stuffed toys in various stages of stuffiness" -
the Beastie Boy only has a few dozen, but he picks a favorite every day and it stays with him like a blankie unless he wants a game of fetch. His current favorite is a small lion that he carries with him on walks around the neighborhood - mighty hunter that he is.

Off to find a Grinz now,

Just checked, they are available at Amazon.
My two little dogs love to play fetch. I throw the toy and they rush to be their first. They run back to me and I do it again, and again, and again. Then I go to where the toys are and start over. Seems like a dumb game to me but they like it.

Jubilation in Crimea as 95 per cent vote

minister warns separatist leaders that
the ´ground will burn under their feet´
Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Pleasance    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/16/2014 10:59:29 PM     Post Reply
Fireworks exploded and Russian flags were waved by jubilant crowds tonight after Crimea voted overwhelmingly to split from Ukraine and join Russia. With 50 percent of ballots counted, 95.5 percent of voters have backed passing control of the region from Kiev to Moscow. The result comes after Ukrainian prime minister Arseny Yatseniuk vowed to hunt down the ´separatist leaders´ in Crimea, warning that the ´ground will burn under their feet´. Speaking at a cabinet meeting, Yatseniuk said: ´We will find all of them--if it takes one year, two years--and bring them to justice and try them in Ukrainian and international

Could a four-year-old thriller unlock
the mystery of flight MH370?

Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/16/2014 5:10:52 PM     Post Reply
As the story of MH370 unfolds, becoming more mysterious by the day, I keep being reminded of a thriller I read four years ago. Bolt Action, a novel by Charlie Charters, is set on board exactly the same plane--not just a Boeing 777, but a 777-200ER. In addition, the plane belongs to the national carrier of a Muslim state, though in Bolt Action´s case it´s Pakistan not Malaysia. The thriller poses the question: What if a plane is hijacked but no one can regain control because the cockpit door is locked? Since 9/11 all passenger jets have bolt armatures fitted

The Crimea crisis could

Financial markets in the West have so far remained remarkably sanguine in the face of the crisis in Ukraine. But in the wake of Crimea´s referendum, which sealed Vladimir Putin’s effective theft of the peninsula, some form of sanctions is almost inevitable. How long, then, will the calm continue? [Snip] Around a third of Europe’s gas, coal and oil imports come from Russia, and there has been massive direct investment by foreign firms. A military response to Russian aggression has already been ruled out by Western leaders. In Vladimir Putin’s calculation, meaningful sanctions are not much of an option, either.

Set amid the vast birch woods that stretch towards the Russian border, the Latvian city of Daugavpils is not so much in the Kremlin´s backyard as right on its doorstep. Yet should Vladimir Putin ever drop in for a vodka at the Artillery Cellar Club, the reception may prove as icy as the nearby River Daugava in Spring. "This is the only bar in town where the Russian language is banned," smiles owner Andrejs Faibusevics, 47, who runs the snug live music venue with his wife Inara.

SIMFEROPOL, Crimea--If respected international election observers had been allowed to watch Crimea´s referendum on whether to join Russia or merely gain greater autonomy from Ukraine, they would have found plenty of violations. After polls closed at 8 p.m., more signs of trouble surfaced, with Kyiv Post and even Russian journalists being aggressively barred from watching the vote count in one polling station in central Simferopol. Police smashed a TV camera of a Russian crew. [Snip] "We just wanted to formally confirm the vote count, but they pushed me away," Bontman said. "We don´t have things like this in Russia."

Gun store owner refuses to hand over

The owner of a California arms store says a federal agency has raided his property in search of the names of customers who purchased gun parts, despite a temporary restraining order preventing it from doing so. Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor in Oceanside, says that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agents have threatened to shut down his business unless he hands over a list of 5,000 customers who bought AR-15 lower receivers, the sale of which the ATF says is illegal. The receiver is the part of a firearm that houses the operating parts. Ares

British troops have pulled out of all but one frontline outpost in Helmand province in one of the final acts of the 13-year mission in Afghanistan. Just one base, Sterga 2, remains in Helmand outside Camp Bastion, as the UK works towards withdrawing all combat troops by the end of this year. In an operation lasting more than a month, three important bases have been closed or handed over to Afghan control in Helmand, where 448 UK soldiers have died since 2001. Main Operating Base Lashkar Gah--the former headquarters of UK military forces in Afghanistan--and Patrol Base Lashkar Gah Durai

CYBER HIJACK? Chilling new theory

A chilling theory suggests the missing Malaysian Airlines plane could have been hijacked using a mobile phone or USB stick. An anti-terror expert believes the speed, altitude and direction of the aircraft could have been changed, simply by sending radio signals from a small remote device. A framework of ´codes´ created by cyber terrorists would also be able to get into the plane´s in-flight entertainment system and override the security software. It is also believed, once the systems have been successfully hacked, the plane could be landed by remote control. [Snip] Dr Sally Leivesley, a former Home Office official, said:

The UK Independence Party is on course to win the largest share of the vote in May´s European Elections, according to a new poll. The party is currently on 30 percent, with Labour in second place on 28. The ComRes poll for the Independent on Sunday, which bases its European voting figures on the 38 percent of respondents who said they are "absolutely certain" to vote, is the first poll for some time to ask a question specifically about the European elections. The Conservatives, who maintain that they are the only party who can offer a referendum on the EU,

Last week, a deputy head teacher in Birmingham, called Razwan Faraz, tweeted a newspaper article casting doubt on claims that hard-line Muslims were plotting to take over some of the city’s state schools. [Snip] Investigations by The Telegraph, separate to and in parallel with the “Trojan Horse” letter, reveal that there is indeed an organised group of Muslim teachers, education consultants, school governors and activists dedicated to furthering what one of them describes as an “Islamising agenda” in Birmingham’s schools. And Mr Faraz should know: he is at the heart of it. They convene, among other places, on WhatsApp, a

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

Nick Rahall trails Republican challenger state Sen. Evan Jenkins by a 54-percent to 40-percent margin. The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a Republican firm which, like several Democratic and other Republican firms, has had a good record for reliability over the years. This is astonishing for several reasons. Rahall, first elected in 1976, is now the seventh most senior member of the House, with three of the more senior members retiring

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration.

"We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W.

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind.

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available.
